Bag a Basket

Since around two years, we have been deep into the basket bag trend that just won’t quit. Beloved of fashionistas for their insta worthy and youthful appearance, they are the season’s must-have accessory. This summer, designers combined straw, wicker, rattan, beads and even woven cotton with fabric wraps or inlays (also great to keep your belongings safe). Behold, here are the cutest styles to swing into summer.

The Bucket Bag


Bucket bags are perfect for vacation but can still be used back in the city, too. The perfect pieces to take a little summer feeling to fall. With each model, you can pull the drawstring top tight to keep your cell phone and sunglasses secure.

Shoe Special S/S 2010: Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator Sandals 2010

The hype started already in 2008 but this spring the Gladiator Sandals are still very up-to-date. It might be  the combination of looking totally stylish and being very comfy during the day that makes them so loved. As the name already implies, these shoes were favoured by Ancient Greeks and Romans. Roll up your jeans and show your beautiful sandals or pair them with hot pants (wow effect!). My favourites are the knee-high ones by Belle by Sigerson Morrison available at www.net-a-porter.com.

The next days, I will tell you all about the most stunning shoes and accessories trends for the upcoming spring/summer season. Hope that you will enjoy it and get inspired.

LoL, Sandra
