*263 Brigitta

Good style doesn’t come for free. If you are thinking about Birkin Bags and luxury labels now I can stop you right there. That’s not what I am talking about. Beautiful clothes don’t necessarily have to cost a lot of money (and you cannot buy good style anyway). Sure, if you have a stack of … Continue Reading

*Used and Unique – Camel Coat

It was in Paris. I was with my friend Dodo and we sat outside a very French, very traditional bistro enjoying the last bit of autumn sun – when this woman walked in.

*111 The Good Things – Trenchcoat

If you get one get a good one. Nothing worse than a cheap Trenchcoat. I don’t want to sound snobbish ( I do like some cheap trash!) but when it comes to classics it HAS to be the real thing. When the time came that I felt adult enough I treated myself to a classic … Continue Reading
