ALONE THIS VALENTINE? TREAT YOURSELF!

February 14, 2011

I wrote a post for all of you in a commited relationship to find the best romantic spots to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I forgot the single human beings – like myself. If nobody is treating you with love, cards or gifts, you have to buy yourself something very tempting. That is: a Diptyque Paris candle. Pictured is their Valentine’s edition, but you can only buy it in New York ($ 78). But they have a lot of other scents to choose from.

NEW SPOT: HOTEL AMERICANO NEW YORK

January 21, 2011

New, new, new! Ace hotel and Standard hotel watch out: there’s a new kid in town. A Mexican kid. And you know about their laid back style: hammocks, design chairs, cool printed blankets. Mix it together with Grupo Habita and the coolest hotel in New York arrives (spring 2011). Even if I didn’t see any pictures yet, I already know that I want to go there! You?

LIKE TO HAVE: AN ALLSAINTS WARDROBE

November 25, 2010

I fell in love with All Saints when I was in London a couple of years ago. I visited their flagshipstore in Spitalfields and loved the soft fabric and the twisted details. For a moment I thought of Rick Owens – but that’s impossible for that prices. It’s a bit rough – not for the girly, girly type of woman. On this wednesdaynight I did some online shopping and these are my favorites:

Clockwise, from left to right:

1. Jumper (cool with a leather legging): 295 euro
2. Scarf: 47 euro
3. Top: 55 euro
4. Denim short: 59 euro
5. The most beautiful purse ever: 59 euro
6. Leather skinny jeans: 177 euro
