Chloé’s “Edition Anniversaire”

Ever since it’s beginning in 1952, Chloé‘s key words have been more attitude and realism than any fashion trend.
The fashion house is celebrating it’s 60th anniversary with a special collection called “Edition Anniversaire“, that features 16 iconic pieces created during the years by many of the designers who have worked for the brand.
Among the creators, we can find Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo, Hannah McGibbon, the current designer, Waight Keller and, of course, Gaby Aghion, the founder.

Celine’s current designer, Phoebe Philo, is the one with the biggest number of icons, gathering 8 garments that have marked the brand forever.

I’m a little obsessed with burgundy these past days (can you tell?), so my outfits have been mainly constructed to go with this color.
This was my outfit from last night and I think I’m sticking to the color until I’m ready to go for white on white, the trendy color combo for the next season!

3 years! Happy birthday Sequin Gown!

Carolina Herrera: happy 74th birthday!

Carolina Herrera,  a Venezuelan designer, started working in the 80’s and her name has become synonymous with elegance and style. Through the years, the designer has presented nothing less than chic and classy looks that can be combined with everyday items, perfect for every hour of the day. Whether their basics and minimal or long gowns, her signature is clear and her tailoring is perfect.

Her “empire” has been built through her work with ready to wear and her fragrance line and she also had a bridal line. People who care less about fashion, are still enchanted with her scents.

Let them know it’s Christmas

Image

One of my New Year’s resolutions is definitely having more time to blog in 2013! I know I have been away for a while and I haven’t posted anything really interesting in the past few days. The blog is important to me and I feel like I’m abandoning a child when I spend weeks without publishing something. Promise this will not happen in 2013.

For now, just thought I should share this set with you with. If I could choose a very expensive outfit for Christmas, it would definitely be one of these three. I’m in love with the black and green MSGM dress and purple lipsticks and I still in love with gold tone sequins. Definitely my must-have item this year!

What will you be wearing this Christmas?
