Zara messenger bag with edging

As promised here is a look at my new bag: the Zara messenger bag with edging in the colour grey
 Grey one comes with rose gold hardware. The bag is also available in black (see link below) with gold hardware

The bag has an interior pocket (no zipper) as well as two cellphone slots
And why not do a quick "what's in my bag" while we're at it...
  • Ray-Ban wayferer sunglasses
  • Nokia C3
  • Keys
  • L'Occitane 20% shea butter hand cream
  • Kiehl's #1 lip balm in vanilla
  • MAC lipstick in Creme Cup
  • Moleskine 2012 planner
  • ProMarkers in China Blue, Grey Green and Duck Egg
(I did just realize that my wallet isn't in the picture)

UPDATE: for anyone wondering about the strap and how I shortened it, here's a separate post about it.

Zara gathered sleeve blazer

Forgive me wallet for I have sinned!
Yes I caved and bought another blazer but oh how I love it. The classy navy color, the detailed shoulders, the wonderful light weight and the slimming cut... I would probably sleep in it. Blazers are one of my absolute favorite garments but can sometimes be a bit difficult. Many of them are too short and make my slightly longer torso look weird and if there isn't enough room in the shoulders I can't move my arms without the blazer constricting. If I go up a size they just don't look flattering, so when I do find one that's just right I have to get it.

J.Crew order- colorblock stripe boatneck tee

 Don't underestimate the value of a first impression. Does J.Crew really ship all of their orders in a brown paper bag?
Nonetheless is still love the shirt, It'll be perfect for spring. If you're thinking about ordering it online just keep in mind that the color is NEON PINK

There won't be much blogging this week since I have exams on both Monday and Wednesday which I really need to focus on. J.Crew order should be coming in this week. According to the DHL tracking system it has departed from Leipzig (Germany) so fingers crossed that it will arrive soon.

Savile Row

"Labels say you're one of the boys but a bespoke suit says you're the man"
I remember standing outside one of the tailors on Savile Row last October. Looking down into a workshop, I was amazed by the beautiful and intricate work that was taking place right in front of my eyes. If you have some extra time I highly recommend watching this documentary. 
(This is part one of the first episode, you can find the rest of this episode as well as episodes two and three on youtube simply by typing savile row in the search box)

videos for the weekend

Here are two wonderfully inspiring videos for the weekend. Continuing on the subject of J.Crew, I placed an order yesterday which should arrive in 4-8 business days. Not too hard to guess what it is if you just go back a few posts.

Day in the life...

Start the day with some breakfast. Greek yogurt/almonds/whole grain cereal/honey and a glass of orange juice
 Time for a workout. Nike dri-fit sports bra and water bottle, yoga mat by casall, Old Navy yoga pants and my 1st generation iPod nano which I've taken back into use
 Time to hit the books...
 My reward... March issue of British VOGUE and a cup of Lipton herbal infusion tea (strawberry and rose hip flavor)

This is what I've been looking at for the past hour an a half. Ice cream sure makes it a lot better.
