Spring Must-Haves

Chanel Ivory Shell Clutch - One of the things that may have generated the most buzz at the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 show was clearly this adorable piece. At the show Florence Welch sang “What the Water Gave Me” which seems more than accurate in this fashion setting - underwater world. When writing these lyrics she might not had thought about this accessory in particular, but inside Grand Palais the echo of these words came to life within Karl Lagerfeld’s shell design.
A pair of hot heels - preferably these from Kurt Geiger or Prada's shoes which are on fire this season. The collection Miuccia Prada designed is beyond fantastic with flames sticking out from the heel on wedges and pumps.

Visor - It doesn't need to be this exact visor from Balenciaga's Resort collection, you can always buy one in most vintage stores, it's perfect if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative. Fashionistas in the street and outside of fashion shows will wear this headwear, which fortunately also gives some shade from the sun.

Yesterday's Look - Sorry for the image quality

iPhone photos aren't worthy for my readers but I didn't have any choice yesterday, I hope you excuse me. As Harper's Bazaar's street-style photographer Mr Newton said: "you shouldn't post photos on your blog, which you think Vogue wouldn't publish in their magazine". Maybe I should have listened to these wise words, but I wanted to show you the details of my look: the pattern of my new tights, my new bag which I wrote Je t'aime...Moi Non Plus on and this beautiful dress which only consists of a black square pattern in chiffon fabric (which unfortunately you can't see except for the close-up in the last photo). The necklace was a Christmas present from my mother and it ultimately completes the look.

The new Awesome Rags store + Happy Socks

I recently visited the newly opened Awesome Rags store in the heart of Stockholm where they had a small exhibition of the photo campaign shot by Terry Richardson for Happy Socks, starring model Ashley Smith. She seems to be everywhere these days and often when I see her I think about Lara Stone, maybe it's because they have the same smile (teeth gap). She's not doing many high-fashion shoots and ads but instead indie shoots which are pretty cool; like one for Oyster Magazine and the short film Une fille Comme Les Autres for Jalouse Magazine (which I got from beautiful Jeanne Damas who also has a part in it, watch it below).

This had nothing to do with the exhibition but I really liked this cool skirt and the green shoes were fierce.

Happy Socks x Terry Richardson
I actually gave my friend a pair of these exact socks and after he saw this photo he was like: - I'm not wearing these ever again...

Today's Craving - Chanel Heels

When you're dancing in a club and you've dropped your lipstick on the floor you might need a flashlight when you're fumbling in the dark. But it's rather geeky walking around with a pocket torch, it's much more fashionable having Chanel heels which lights up the floor.

The Best Spring Campaigns

My favorite campaign photo was Bottega Veneta's featuring Karmen Pedaru, who looks absolutely breathtaking in a green creation which automatically made its way to the top of my wish-list (SOLD!). It's hard to move on to the next one with this picture in my mind...

Valentino had a refreshingly beautiful spring collection for 2012 and it really shows in these photos, an important variable when shooting such an ad. The new designers of the brand has embraced the boho-chic look many Fashionistas crave and the color pallet is just perfect.

Nina Ricci had my favorite fall campaign if you remember and this one is no less impressive. Who doesn't want to run and have the dress look like that moving in the wind (light purple is a plus) and you can barely see that it's the super model Raquel Zimmermann, it's all about the photo and the amazing shadows.
