I came across this great website today. NOT JUST A LABEL (“NJAL”) is the leading global business directory for showcasing avant-garde fashion designers of today, nurturing the upcoming talents of tomorrow. It’s actually very refreshing just to have a look at and it makes you wish we’d see more creativity out there. I think I’m getting at a stage where my usual brands don’t feel quite right anymore. I’m looking forward to see this new generation on the streets (well, not in the bad way… you get it… I hope)

Sometime (well, most of the time) I think there’s something wrong with me. Tonight I was browsing around this shop and I nearly bought the first dress on the left. The thing is: 1. it is way too cold now to even be dreaming about wearing it 2. The shape of my body is not made to wear anything like this 3. Every time I put on a dress in the morning, I take it off about 10 minutes later… it just never feels right. Tomorrow this will be my challenge: I will wear a dress (yes hubby, for real this time!). Once I’ve done that I’ll need to reward myself and buy a new dress… hehe… clever…

I’m as excited as if I had found gold! I’m in love, I want them all. Lilian Asterfield is the label created by genius goddess (yep… just that) Nicole Deponte. Her label is providing a whole line of one of a kind accessories all made out of ties. My favourite top (for now 10 years nearly) is a very shy version of what Nicole Deponte does. I’m ready to have a new favourite top! I just have to make a decision now… this is going to be a tough one.

bootbag

I love this bag and I love the pictures. Now I want to wear old ladies suits and walk around with a Bootbag. It’s perfect for Ireland, I don’t know why I don’t see more of them around here. Come on ladies, wellies are not just made to party like crazy in the mud!

Rocket World’s Creature Hoodie Sasquatch “Wild Thing” Edition is part bear, part beast, and part Bigfoot. They say it’s perfect for mischief, subversive actions, taking on poachers and corporate greed, communing with nature, urban exploration, and staying cozy… I’d love my man to have one like this… Yes, I like furry men.

Winter is coming… o.k, o.k not quite. But it really felt like it this morning. The moustache madness seems to have no limits and I’d happily add this new item to my moustache collection!

 

Too cute? September 5, 2009

Our daughter rarely wears shoes… well, she doesn’t walk yet, so it’s best for her to be bare feet while she learns (plus it’s just so cute to see her grabbing toys with her feet first). But now that I’ve found those adorable shoes I feel like it would be nice for our baby to wear complete outfits that includes shoes (and I won’t look like a bad mum with my daughter cruising around without shoes… and most of the times without socks).

vivetta

It’s a good thing I couldn’t find a retailer selling Vivetta’s item in Dublin or in Ireland. Because if I had, I would already be planning how to get there next Saturday (and right now… I can’t afford more shopping). It’s not my style, but I’m in the mood for something new, or silly. I’m getting bored with myself those days (okay a change of wardrobe is just a quick fix… it won’t solve the real issue… I know that!) … if someone has a cure like an anti-bored-with-yourself potion… shout my way.

oeuf

The Fall collection from Oeuf is brilliant! The colours are lovely and they don’t make kids looking like they’re out of a Disney movie. And the style is cool but won’t make your child look like a total freak among his peers at day care! Of course I love the Angel sweater… I want to be home now… I miss my little one too much!

OohLaLaVintage

I said it before but I’m normally not so much into vintage. This said, I think I am about to change my opinion. I’ve found this fabulous dress on Ooh la la! Vintage and I just love it. So maybe this is just a question of finding the right items. Though if I think about it now, this dress would probably not suit me… I’ve been called chubby this week (my friend Emma is so sweet, isn’t she?) and chubby won’t do well with this dress. But she’s right… I had too many hot dogs this week… and too much eggs and bacon for breakfast… too much food in general. It’s really time for me to leave California and go home!
