So, aparently I got some mail today. I knew I was getting it, I just didn't know the exact day nor what would be in my mail.

But today I got it! When I opened it I wanted to say "OMG OMG OMG, GM!!" A friend sent it to me and I couldn't be more happy! Thank you GM, thank you TOPSHOP, thank you HOUSE OF HOLLAND!

February Wishlist

Image
Hello everyone! I'm back after a few days without posting and I'm sorry for that!
I hope everyone had a wonderful V's Day!

Today I want to share a little wishlist I made. I called it "February Wishlist" but it is really a much longer term wishlist. I combined accessories with clothing and some LUSH products. One of the bath bombs I already have, just waiting for the right moment to be used. The clothing items are things I really like and since I love orient-themed things, kimonos had to be here. I must confess my "best friend" this winter has been a chinese jacket my mother gave me (she got tired of it, lucky me). I'm wearing it here.

And now, the February Wishlist!




Two kimonos and a blouse with a bird-and-flowers theme, very oriental-like in my opinion. Also, the black pencil skirt, I must buy one. It is as important as the LBD. All of these are from ZARA.
I saw the cat sweater today, in OYSHO, as well as the eye masks and found them lovely. I'm con…

Vests and suspenders

Image
After my post "Be my valentine: part 2", a friend suggested I do something with vests. I asked her to pick some images she liked of vests for boys and girls. I collected some suspenders/braces and this post is the result of our searches. I hope you all like it.

Tights!

Image
Pants aren't really my thing, so I wear a lot of skirts and shorts. And in the winter, tights are a must-have item!! If there's a brand that really knows how to make great ones, is CALZEDONIA.

The previous post already featured a pair of tights from the Spring/Summer collection and aparently the SS13 catalogue became available today. I picked the images with my favourite tights!







I already have one pair, gotta save for the other 2 :)

XOXO,

Sunday outfit :)

Image
Yesterday I only had time to show the pieces, today I show how it actually looks on me (plus, the stockings really are something amazing!)




I absolutely LOVE the tights! They look so pin up-ish! :)

Have a great monday :)

I hate...

Image
Rainy days! That's right! I hate rainy days. They make me lazy (more than usual) and if I have to go out there's always the what-to-wear issue.
Today is one of those days. After a GREAT SUNNY WEEK, sunday comes grey and gloomy as much as possible. And I have to go out. And I don't want to wear my CAT boots. I want something girly and delicate, but there's no way around it. So, I improvised. What do you think?


Top and Skirt: ZARA
Tights and boot cuffs: CALZEDONIA
Boots: CAT

Bought the tights yesterday, aren't they adorable? :)
The boots have some faux fur cuffs to make them less agressive. Success?

Have a great sunday and week as well.
XOXO,

M

Days in pictures

The last images are of the new TOUS shop in the downtown of Lisbon. The shop was already a jewelry shop before TOUS. It was a beautiful antique shop, very traditional, that had many pieces of antique and traditional portuguese jewelry. It was sad to see it go, but TOUS did a great job in maintaining the architectural traces of the original building and creating a very refined and beautiful shop. A must see for everyone, it's wonderful!

Have a great weekend,
XOXO
