Some people think I don’t accessorize. Actually I do, well i’ve wanted to for the longest time. The thing is I have been investing in other areas of my wardrobe not really giving accessories the relevance I should.
Also I hadn’t found items I really wanted to invest on, until recently. Honestly I had my eyes set on Hermes, they make the most gorgeous bracelets but on a unexpected trip to Saint Laurent I kind of fell in love with their jewelry line too. Last month while in Stockholm shopping the Midsummer sales with my friend I ran into this item at 50% off, something that shouldn’t been happening since this is really a permanent collection bracelet. Now those things happen with retailers, and it’s better for us customers to encounter bargains not supposed to happen, so I kind of had to have it right away.
What I love most about this bracelet is it has a sort of resemblance to the Hermes “Medor” watch (smallest size) and that is my dream accessory (no longer in production). I like the subtle little touch of “tough” in an outfit, specially when given by an accessory, so soft you can barely notice, to me that reaches true perfection.

A pair of heels a season. Since I don’t wear much heels that’s all I really need, and all I really buy. This lovely pair by Isabel Marant has been on my wishlist since they first came out back in Fall 2010. They were only released for a season and then they disappeared until this re-release for Spring 2014. So of course when I saw them this season I knew I had to have them. I never expected them to go on sale, I was actually quite ready to take the plunge at full price (thing I never do for high heels) but somehow I saw them not selling online so I decided to wait. To my surprise they went on sale on almost every online retailer I know, which was pretty much fantastic, and there was still stock left in my size (first size to always sell out), which is even more of a surprise, so of course I am thrilled!
This type of phenomenon that has been happening a lot lately, the re-release of best-selling pieces that have now become classics to have them stay as permanent items pretty much sums up what my vision of fashion is: classic fashion. A piece that will remain timeless (all the opposite to trendy) is always a good investment.

Something that has been on my wishlist since forever: MHL cream dungarees. I missed last year navy ones, so this year I was determined to avoid the same situation.
I am loving the color, the design, I have yet to do something about the fit because they are huge (even for an oversized style), but I refuse to let them go. This is kind of a designer/stylist’s challenge for me, so I am ready to take it, and make this baby work on me!
If you remember my “Summer 2014 sandals” entry you will see how I shared my wishlist of favorite footwear for this season. My number from the list was this pair by A.P.C the “Roma” sandals.
Last year A.P.C released a previous version of this sandal exactly the same style but in a different material (suede) with perforated leather in different colors (navy, burgundy and mustard yellow). I wanted the burgundy pair badly and I did not buy they right away and they sold out. This year I was the happiest girl when they re-released the same style in smooth leather and in black!
While in Paris this winter I almost buy them but I was not feeling the sandal call just yet, and was more into footwear I could wear right away. Well again my size sold out everywhere…but stalking all the online retailers that sold them last week I was lucky enough to have find them on sale 50% off, only pair left…my size! I snapped them right away, and this morning they arrived. I’m so happy with this purchase, so expect to see many summer outfits of me wearing them.
