I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag

Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality LV look for less alternative, A.L.C.’s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to the SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is only about 1/5 compared to the price of the real deal, so overall it’s still a great deal.

Victoria’s Secret angel and supermodel mom Miranda Kerr went for a monochrome casual cool getup recently when she departed from LAX on January 15, 2013, looking absolutely fabulous in oversized cat eye sunglasses, an animal print cardigan, black leather pants and her favorite Isabel Marant Bekket wedge sneakers. I loved Miranda’s look so much, I recreated it for you on a more budget-friendly level. Hope you like it!

Get Her Look! – Cobie Smulders in A.L.C.

by Irina on April 17, 2012

Cobie Smulders may have slipped under my fashion radar for quite a while, but when I saw her rocking a pair of bright green A.L.C. cigarette pants along with a white sheer blouse, also by A.L.C., and neutral colored heels I couldn’t help but be absolutely smitten by the effortless elegance of her look. Find out below how to rock a similar ensemble as Cobie.

My Shopbop Wish List for February 2012

by Irina on February 14, 2012

What an unusual selection for this month’s Shopbop wish list. Normally I’m always opting for a bunch of dresses, but this time I was way more smitten by the lovely tops and jewelry that was recently added to Shopbop. I’m especially crushing on the coral Theory sweater and the blue and turquoise statement necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane. So gorgeous!

It is finally October which means Fall has finally begun, the season of boots, coats, scarves, knitwear and more. But it’s only October, today happens also to be my 26th birthday (yay!), so this month’s Shopbop wish list might be a bit more special to me than the others one as it features some items I really, really wish for (but don’t have money for ;-)). It’s kind of really red-heavy this time which is weird because while I do like the color and own a lot of red stuff it’s unusual for me to pick so many red things, but the selection felt very natural to me, so I just let it happen somehow. Have fun & let me know what you think of my October picks.
