balenciaga marbled high top sneakers fw13

My name is Lucy and I am addicted to sneakers. There, I’ve said it. If anyone knows a treatment centre for this, do let me know. All my sneaker investments so far have been really good ones though, they’re the only designer pieces I will actually wear every day because I’m just not such a heel heroine and well, I am a sneaker kinda girl. My current major obsession is this pair of marbled Balenciaga sneakers. So cool, but a good quite basic high top at the same time, and did I say cool yet? Someone stop me now. Or not. Available here.


3 Things

3 things wanted

3 things on my not-so-humble wishlist. Loving the Kenzo eyes, they seem to come up with something different that works really well every time. Tigers, clouds, eyes.. Next is the Bambi Givenchy top – which is super overpriced but then again it’s Bambi and Givenchy.. And who wouldn’t want a Fendi monster on their key ring? I do.

Drop Waist

drop waist peplum dress stella mccartney resort 2013 for less

So far I’ve had an aversion to peplum but I’m really loving this new drop waist peplum movement that is emerging. It’s like the slouchy version of peplum, feminine but relaxed and not as fitted. The look in the middle is from Stella McCartney Resort 2014 collection and actually is my favorite look from that collection which says a lot since I hardly even wear dresses. I found the look for less already and I’m really loving both the dress on the left and on the right as a budget version of the Stella McCartney look.

Find the first dress here and the second one here.



pre-fall ankle boots opening ceremony phillip lim acne saint laurent favorites

Pre-fall collections are dropping in and so far I’m having a really hard time not clicking everything I like home, just because I’m excited for fall (fashion! not rain) to arrive. There are especially some really good booties out there that are both very wearable (low heeled), super cool and I love how there’s a lot of different textures and fabrics going on in pre-fall footwear. These are my favorite ankle boots that are out there at the moment and all of the above would be the perfect every day boots for me. I really really really want to order one of them but there’s 2 issues. First of all, which one? I love all of them I really can’t decide. Second of all, it probably would be smartest to wait a little longer because there’s much more to come for fall. But then again, I don’t want to wait too long and see all the boots I want sell out and end up with nothing. It’s so harddddd! Which one do you like best?

best grey basics

I love trends. There’s no way to have fashion without having trends, and I love the variation it brings, the shifts, the novelty. But there are a few things that I wear without even caring whether it’s a trend or not. Take sneakers, or leopard. The biggest of them all must be grey. I just love grey. It’s not really a ‘fashion’ color right now, but I couldn’t care less. The best basics I have are grey, grey goes with everything (especially tanned skin and silver jewelry!) and all grey looks can be so sophisticated (unless you’re doing grey-sweat-onesie). So I cleaned out my closet last week and threw out a lot of stuff, and looking at my closet I decided I could use some more basics, especially grey ones. I found them all in one shop, all very budget friendly! How cool are those grey sunnies and hat?

You can find the items here:
Rib jumper / Fedora hat / Skinny jeans
Grey sunnies / Boyfriend blazer
Cupro running shorts / Holdall bag / Basic fleck tee

Hopefully I’ll soon have time and energy to take pictures of all my pre-loved items I’m selling and update my shop, but until then: Happy Friday!

The Kenzo bikini speaks for itself if you know me by now, and those shorts are just the perfect boyfriend shorts. And then there’s those gorgeous Valentino rockstud flats and the coolest glasses out there at the moment, leopard of course.
