ONE THING THAT looks great with just about everything is a camel coat. I have gotten a bit obsessed with them lately and got this the other day at Massimo Dutti. A coat makes your look very pulled together without it seeming like your trying to hard. A nice jumpsuit is also one of those items that makes looking chic easier. When you don’t have the energy to make an effort with your outfit a jumpsuit is perfect.

Coat: Massimo Dutti

GEMS, DIAMONDS, CRYSTALS and everything that dazzles is something I have always loved and admired. Especially those that has an historical story to them are like art pieces to me. While I lived in London I went to see The Crown Jewel Exhibition at the Tower of London and was amazed. But these pictures taken by the Los Angeles based photographer and historian Dr. Paul Koudounaris portrayed in his book Heavenly Bodies is beyond amazing to me. The pictures portray corpses found at the Roman catacombs that was taken and bejeweled by german nuns and shown in churches as reminders to the faithful of the treasures that awaited them after death. I find macabre forms of art with a ghostly feel mystical and beautiful so definitely wouldn’t mind having this as a coffee table book. You can get the book on amazon – here.
This little boxed collection is also straight up my alley featuring photo-biographies of Cartier, Codognato, Van Cleef & Arpels, Shinde Jewels, and Dior Jewelry. Available at Shopbop – here.

WORE MY LITTLE 3.1 Phillip Lim today. Paired it with my leather pants I bought years ago in a little boutique in Rome. And my Nicholas sandals here (adlink). Love the look with leather pants with zippers that are unzipped at the bottom paired with sandals.

IT’S TURTLENECK SEASON! .. But I’m in Spain so I wear it on the beach. The best things with turtlenecks is that you can tuck your hair in. Cozy! Currently enjoying Spain over Christmas along with my family.

SHOPBOP IS HAVING an extra 20 off all sales with the code EXTRAOFF20 so naturally I had to order something. Been eyeing this white gown (adlink) for a while so I just had to have it now when it was so cheap, hehe. Good tip for a new years gown BTW. So is this black one (adlink). Personally I’m not doing anything special for New Years – not much for it. My dream New Years has always been being somewhere with a nice view, watching fireworks from afar while having champagne in the pool, hot tub, jacuzzi or where ever you’re not required to wear more than a bikini (I would wear this one) with your BF.
But I’m sure I’ll find an occasion for the gown anyway. It’s amazing!
