I'll do whatever it takes

My dad was in Stockholm a while back and picked up a little thing for me at Nordiska Kompaniet...
A silver Michael Kors watch, more specifically the mother of pearl shiny silver watch
I was just going to talk about how MK watches aren't available in Finland even though they do sell MK clothing at Stockmann. At the beginning of every month Stockmann sends out a catalog to exclusive customers. It arrived today and as I was flipping through it I noticed something very familiar :D. The exact same watch that I just got as well as another one with a leather strap is now available at Stockmann. I don't know how many different watches they have or if it was just those two, but I'll know by Saturday since I'm going downtown to pick up a few things.

inspiration: Miroslava Duma

 Here is another beauty who's always captured my eye with her impeccable style. Miroslava used to be an editor for Russian Harper's Bazaar. She now freelances for magazines like Tatler and Glamour (Russia). Btw I love how she managed to look incredibly stylish while pregnant.

on a high

I've recently been very inspired to redo my room. This tends to happen during the winter when I'm inside a lot and my outfit options are limited and they usually end up being whatever is the warmest. I've told you before that I prefer clothes in very neutral colors. The same goes for interior design and furnishing. I like white walls, dark wooden floors and large windows, basically just a very clean look. The pictures above are from J.K.Place in Florence where a handful of lucky fashion bloggers are currently staying for the Firenze4ever event hosted by LuisaViaRoma.

This is one girl I would love to swap wardrobes with. This goes to show that neutral colors can make just as interesting and individual outfits as bright colors can.

inspiration: Miranda Kerr

Here is some inspiration for this week. Miranda along with Maryna Linchuk are probably my two favorite models, both of them are absolutely stunning. Also, I'm in love with the Prada dress from the 2010 resort collection that she is wearing in the 2nd picture. I'm usually the type of person who opts for something more like the last outfit, but that dress is just so pretty.

UPDATE: check out part 2 here

the one

(sweater Rag & Bone, pants l'Agence, bag Proenza Schouler, boots Burberry Prorsum)

I've been trying to find a similar chunky knit sweater as above, but I just can't seem to find "the perfect one". I might try Zara again as they have a tone of them on sale right now or then Weekday. Any other ideas where I might find one?

never too early

Yes it's January and I just ordered bikinis. ASOS like many other stores are having a sale right now to get rid of last seasons items. Not that I'll be wearing these any time soon, but at least they'll help me stay motivated about getting back into shape for summer.

inspiration: Christine Centenera


I absolutely love her style. There isn't a lot of information about her, but she is the fashion editor at Harper's Bazaar Australia and also freelances as a stylist. She lives in Bondi in Sydney Australia and has confessed to be a sucker for studs, metal detailing and patent leather.
