It’s Ferragosto ’round here which means half the country is on holiday- except us martyred professionals of course. Yet more rain on the forecast, which means you’ll forgive the mention of sheepskin in August!

Dree Hemingway, 2008

  • Maybe it’s the advantage of being ridiculously good looking by nature, but offduty models sport some serious style of their own: Craig Arend of Altamira delivers fluid shots of the soon-to-be-big names in fashion.
  •  Valentina Siragusa’s Factory Style is a gem with a fresh spin on casual preppy. She knows the trends yet doesn’t adhere to any set formula to win the equation. Her recent trial with video is a winner and i do hope she keeps them coming.
  • Of the “I see it, I like it, I buy Make it” credo? Then P.S. I Made This is for you! From macrame necklaces to ruffle shirts to boho headpieces, Erica Domesek presents novel ways to rework everyday items into trendy pieces in clear cut instructions:

Tropical Straw Necklace

 

  •  Office accessory must-have: the Sharpie Liquid Pencil works like an erasable pencil and becomes permanent 24 hours after

For the OC geek in me

  • Obsessed with shearling? Who isn’t! The Nala Jacket at Allsaints embodies everything i need this A/W10

100% sheepskin

And lastly, something to make you smile for its transparency:

Oh yeaaah

Have a great midweek!

Referred to as the “The Enfant Terrible of French fashion” due to the elegant quirkiness of his designs, Jérome Dreyfuss broke out into the fashion world in 1998 at the age of 23.

The Henri in Beige Caviar

The Bob in Rust

The Oscar in Python Noir

His website is as fun and bold as his designs: clicking on a bag name to bring up the line will result in a child’s voice reading the text in adorable French accent. What’s not to love?

Jérome Dreyfuss bags can be found in his retail stores in New York, Paris and Taipei.

The forecast shows clouds and grey skies till early next week but we’re in too good of a mood to mind the fact it’s only halfway through summer and we’re already layering up. Instead, this week’s thoughts have been captured by the promise of a mini vacation come October, when i might just celebrate my 26th in Belgium! (Antwerp, i will save up for a stroll along your awesome shopping district!).

Today we’re having lunch with the boys at Porto Garibaldi and then we’re off shopping for tonight’s homemade pizzas. Oh we do love midweeks!

I have this one plaid shirt i wear to death because whenever i’m confronted with shopping options, i let my focus wander slightly off mission. The poor thing is exhausted and shrinking into the recesses of my closet.

Tada’! Problem solved!

 

 

I might wear a double wrap belt with this, but otherwise it’s slated to become my day-off uniform.
