Missibaba A/W 2011

lately i’ve been in a shoe phase (more like perving over shoes than actually buying them) – but am slowly coming round to bags again. my black leather bag hasn’t let me down for over 5 years and is versatile enough that i haven’t gotten bored of it, but it’s starting to show some wear… and as much as it saddens me it might be time for something new.

Dusty Rose

dusty rose is what i guess you’d call it, one of my absolute favourite colours (as seen in my current ‘logo’) and captured so perfectly in this outfit snapped by the sartorialist. oh my – it is quite possibly the best street style look i have seen this year so far. everything about this lady from her hair down to her loafers makes me smile.

Hermès

so … Bukowski’s. i can’t help myself. had a major browse through their Vintage & Jewellery catalogue which auctioned two days ago. tons of items from designer labels like ysl, louis vuitton & chanel (including chanel no.5 brooch which i thought was pretty cool) and you know, it’s all very beautiful – but what i was most interested in was the scarves. particularly the Hermès scarves, which i have always delegated to old lady territory until i became intrigued by the possibility of wearing head scarves last winter.

Eclectic

i think i am more addicted to scoping out auction catalogues at Bukowskis than i am online window shopping. which is a good thing, because i can’t actually afford anything at bukowskis and therefore my bank balance is not at risk.
