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 Louis Vuitton SC alternative then A.L.C.‘s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to LV’s SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is still only about 1/5 of the LV SC bag’s price, so it’s a great deal overall.

So I know I already raved quite a bit about Rag & Bone‘s Classic Newbury Booties (last time here), but a few days ago I discoreved this lustworthy burgundy suede version and have been obsessed with these classic and minimalistic ankle boots ever since! So much so that I am seriously contemplating biting the bullet and actually get the real deal! I know I’d get a lot of wear out of these because I am weirdly attracted to ankle boots lately and wear them almost daily. Decisions, decisions.

Back in November last year Selena Gomez donned a very sexy yet elegant look that I totally fell in love with. The young actress wore a black cut-out satin dress with a deep plunging neckline by Cushnie et Ochs and completed her outfit with plum lips, wavy hair and black pointy suede pumps. I took my chance at recreating Selena’s vampy look on a budget-friendly, what do you think? Did I succeed?

I usually don’t fall prey to the hype that surrounds beauty-related limited editions, but Chanel‘s holiday collection “Éclats du soir de Chanel” has got me obsessed! Admittedly, it’s not too hard to fall for Chanel, but it’s even easier when you love their cosmetic line which I do. Actually, the 3 basics that I use daily in my makeup routine are all by Chanel: 1. The incredible MAT LUMIÈREls which has been my #1 go-to foundation for more than five years. 2. The “INIMITABLEls” mascara which works miracles on my lashes and is the only high-end mascara I didn’t regret buying. 3. The IRÉELLEamazon blush in “70 – Incognito” – one of the few blushes I find flattering for my skin tone. But now let’s take a look at the collection…

ÉCLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL Limited Edition

“Éclats du soir de Chanel” is available at NORDSTROMls & Bergdorf Goodmanls.

What I love most about this holiday collection is the dark velvety lipstick (307 – L’IMPATIENTE) and the red black shimmering nail polish (637 – MALICE). Didn’t I tell you oxblood would be a huge beauty trend in Fall 2012? I’ll probably end up buying both of these products twice so I can also gift them for christmas to one of my makeup loving friends.
