Velvet is the trend fabric this F/W 2016 season. I have always loved it for the holiday season as it is such a festive material. Since last summer, I have been crazy for the designs that Lorenzo Serafini creates for Philosophy. They are stylish and have a great price point.
This blue velvet dress has become my first disappointment because after wearing it only one day, all seams around the sleeves tore. Unfortunately, I had to give it back – a service that I like about online shopping, no discussion, just a refund to your credit card.
My look: Quilted nylon coat with mink by Gucci, embellished lace-trimmed blue velvet mini dress by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, blue velvet ankle boots by Miu Miu and 2.55 quilted bag with attached hanger by Chanel (Front Row Only F/W 2016 collection).

For Resort 2017, MIU MIU launches the ‘pareo’ skirt. Inspired by a journey, this infinitely adaptable and audacious design represents the rejection of formality and the independent spirit of the Miu Miu girl as she travels the world broadening her knowledge and experience in the pursuit of personal freedom.
The ‘pareo’ skirt is available in three variations: in cotton voile Vichy or ‘planet’ prints and in a crêpe de chine check. All are universally recognisable, democratic and as optimistic and light-hearted as the woman who chooses to wear them.
Beloved by continents as diverse as Asia and Africa, the charm of the ‘pareo’ skirt lies in both its simplicity and immediacy. It is at once familiar – worn equally by men and women across the globe – and highly individual – no two people need ever wear it in quite the same way. In that sense, the ‘pareo’ skirt is transformative, the ultimate expression of the liberating qualities of the contemporary woman’s wardrobe.
Available from selected Miu Miu stores worldwide, each ‘pareo’ skirt comes packaged in a special soft fabric envelope stamped with the iconic Miu Miu name, sold at 390€.
Perfect for your next trip to the beach or to layer your next fall look.

I have this desire to explore the world, therefore I love traveling. Last month, one of my favorite trips was my visit to Les Sources de Caudalie in Bordeaux. The whole report will be coming up shortly. Here is a little teaser in form of an outfit post. When we took the photos, it started raining but you still see the beauty of the surrounding.
My look: Cropped houndstooth wool cardigan, matching wool pleated mini skirt, crystal embellished butterfly earrings and crystal embellished biker boots, all by Miu Miu, tiered ruffled crepe top by Alexander McQueen, long bi-colour scarf by Chanel, python print nylon bag with leather bows and wool jacket with ruffles, both by Prada, merino wool-blend tights by Wolford.

Hurray it is Friday! Did you know? A group of flamingos is called a flamboyance. Probably because of the shocking jolt of brilliant color?
With a flamboyant box from Moët & Chandon arriving at my doorstep, I seem well prepared for my weekend ahead. Moët Rosé Impérial has launched a new limited edition look for this summer season: a bold splash of bright pink flamingos.
These flamingos are perfect way to add glamour to a #moetmoment shared among friends. In French, “osé” means daring. And the Moët Rosé Limited Edition with flamingos puts the “osé” in rosé with the whimsical dares found behind the label of each bottle.
Open the label, find your dare, make it happen:
Do you dare to kiss the person to your left?
Do you dare to hug a stranger?
Do you dare to say “je t’aime” out loud?
Moët Rosé Limited Edition with flamingos is available exclusively in trendsetting boutiques in the regular bottle (750 ml) and stylish Mini Moët sizes (20 cl).
Dare to live more and love more with pink flamingos that can be found even on the most flamboyant fashion accessories!
