The perfect overknee boots

After showing you a selection of my favourite overknee boots in this post; I've put together this outfit for you.
Having found my perfect pair of overknee boots at Zara, I chose to do a little review about them.

First of all, as most of the Zara footwear, they run true to size. This is probably the first time that I buy boots from Zara that cover my calfs. I must say when I tried them on I was extremely disappointed when it comes to proportions. The part of the boots which covers the calfs and the knee are extremely tight. I am still fairly skinny but still I cannot wear them with a pair of jeans - only tights/leggings will do.
I think boots should be made to fit as many legs as possible and for this pair it's definitely not the case. The reason why I ended up purchasing them is very simple… I thought if I wear them a little I can break them in and they might become wider. As a matter of a fact they did expand a bit despite to what you would expect since they weren't real leather.

I opted for a black and white look this time round, never the less, I have to admit that it was freezing.
Stay tuned as I will be putting together a list of my favourite items that are worth keeping an eye on for this upcoming BLACK FRIDAY sale! x

Bags of the moment

Bags of the moment

Every season there are a few bags that just have to belong in a fashionista's closet. For this fall/winter season the must-have pieces are definitely among this selection of bags.
From Chloe to Valentino, they all did a great job!
As many of you know, the Chloe "Drew" bag as well as the "Faye" are extremely popular, however there are 2 other styles such as the "Georgia", followed by the "Hudson", that are on the rise.
Another crush of mine is the adorable "mini peekaboo" by Fendi. I mean, how cute is that bag?
Next, I am also loving the Miu Miu Leo patterned bag as seen on many other famous bloggers such as the beloved Chiara Ferragni.
By the way, how do you like the new Gucci collection? I adore it, especially the Gucci "Dionysus" is triggering a major weakness in me...!

I'm sure there are a couple more bags that one shouldn't miss-out on but these are my absolute "faves" and I am a 100% sure that you will rock the streets with these beauties!

Which bag is your favourite or currently on your wish-list? let me know, I'm curious!

HM x Balmain

What should I say... you are probably saturated with these Balmain by H&M looks but I just have to show you these gorgeous velvet patterned trousers. I love them!

To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the collection up until the night before everything was out in stores. Getting up at 5am the next day to stand in a queue knowing that I worked until 12pm, didn't really appeal to me - I was shattered. Plus, did I want to go through the whole craziness and chaos again like last year for the Alexander Wang by H&M collection? It was a tricky decision for me - I thus ended up setting an alarm on 5th of november to ring at 4:30am. You would expect me to get up… well guess what… I stayed in bed and just decided to get my beauty sleep instead of injuring myself and my wallet.
Upon this decision, I chose to go to our local H&M store the following day and still found my luck. I scored these gorgeous velvet trousers.
Today, looking back I am glad I didn't go, because after speaking to some friends and reading the news, people were apparently going crazy and some even came out with scratches on their faces. People turned into animals for this collection.

For this look I paired the velvet trousers with a turtle neck top, a loose blazer and I added my adorable Chanel Boy bag. This season is all about velvet!!
"The more velvet, the better! "

Trousers: H&M x Balmain

Inspiration: Big knits

In my last post I stated that I would be working at the Luxembourg Art Week, which justifies my absence. I've been working until late very day to the point that as soon as I got home, I'd fall right into my bed.

It's time for a little "Inspiration" post again. This time I chose to show you how to combine the oh-so popular and comfy knits. I've put together a selection of my favourite images and bloggers wearing their big sweaters. Great for inspiration!
Below this post you can find my beloved pieces.
I'd say a must-have this season!

In the coming days, there will be a story on the blog about the HM x Balmain hype, so stay tuned! xx
