I know, Paris Fashion Week is long gone but only now I've found the time to watch the official video of Chanel's défilé. It left me bouche bée. Amazing! The scenario - the Boulevard Chanel inside the Grand Palais in Paris - gorgeous! And - that goes without saying - the collection!

When in doubt, vacation. So true. Last week my other half and I took a few days off. Our destination: Amsterdam. Amsterdam Centraal to be more precise. Honestly, what is more romantic than rail travel?

The Chanel 2.55, the Kelly Bag or the Birkin Bag from Hermès, the ps11 from Proenza Schouler - the list of It Bags is endless and almost every (fashion) seasons there are new ones to add. Above that 
is my personal It Bag. It's clear to see that it's no Chanel and no Hermès - far from it, it's a ZARA.

My fall cravings! For obvious reasons, am I right or am I right? These ACNE STUDIOS ankle boots .... gosh, I swear, it was love at first sight. ZARA currently got a look-alike for less than a quarter of the price of these beauties but that just ain't the same, right?

B o y f r i e n d jeans - that's an old hat, you might think. Is there anything we don't know about the perfect boyfriend jeans yet? Let's sum up the facts: for the desired sexy vibe, the perfect boyfriend jeans should be loose but fitted across the hips, narrow and tapered in the leg, rolled at the hem to no more than an inch above the ankle.

L a y e r i n g  is always an issue in the fashion world. Even in summer. Even in August. It's pouring cats and dogs and it's constantly getting colder. Yesterday I even stepped outside wearing my precious leather jacket. In August. Gosh!

In her book  P a r i s i a n  C h i c  celebrity model and fashion icon Ines de la Fressange said that all the jewelry you needed was a wedding ring. That line made me think and I realized that I hardly ever wear other jewelry than my wedding ring since I'm married. The thing is ... when it comes to jewelry, I'm picky.
