CHOO. After yesterdays super feminine look I thought we needed something a bit more masculine for todays post to balance things out. So, here’s the second outfit I styled for my CHOO 24/7 Stylemakers collaboration.

The inspiration behind this look was Helmut Newtons iconic pictures of Yves Saint Laurents Le Smoking for Vogue Paris in 1975, and the two protagonists in these shots are the Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize‘ clutch and the classic Anouk pumps!

Here’s a bunch of pictures from last week that I never got around posting, love how the gold Phillip Lim clutch makes even the most simple outfit pop.

PARIS. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a second trip to Paris from tuesday to wednesday to attend the Louis Vuitton S/S 13 show. Although we may look relaxed in these pictures I can tell you that was totally not the case. On our way to the show, me and Andy got stuck in traffic and ended up having to run the last 200 meters (in high heels) to the sound of the guards outside the show space counting down the minutes until the show started. We arrived at 09.59 and as soon as we found our seats, the lights went down and the show started. Talk about last minute!!

The show itself was a magical ode to the 60’s featuring cute mod girls in couples of two, cascading down four massive escalators onto the checkered runway. The models sported cute beehives, pea coats, maxi skirts, mini dresses, crop tops and short jackets, all covered in graphic squares in white and sunshine yellow –  a fresh contrast to last years romanticly themed runway show.

Huge thanks to LV for inviting me, and to my running partner Andy for not leaving me behind when my left shoe almost fell off during our sprint to the show. Never ever thought we would make it on time but somehow we did and I could not have picked a better team mate! ;)

LOVE. My latest obsession when it comes to jewellery is the amazing designer Anton Heunis. He makes the most stunning statement pieces and has been on my radar for quite some time now. When I saw these stunning earrings last week I simply couldn’t resist them and luckily enough they arrived on monday morning, just in time for my second mini trip to Paris. Got back home last night and have a whole bunch of pictures to show you guys tomorrow. Tonight I’m just going to put on my PJs, relax and watch a movie, can’t believe fashion week season is over!
