I have some girl crushes, but my latest one is on Clémence Poésy. Lovely on Gossip Girl and Harry Potter and with an amazing style, what's not to love about her? I was really excited to see these pictures from Marie Claire US, February 2011, so I couldn't not share them here.
PS: I'll be announcing the shopbop giveaway winner on my next post, stay tunned.
I wasn't pleased with these pictures, taken inside with crappy light... But once I edited them with the "60's effect" that got me addicted on picnik, I think they turned out ok. I also wanted to say how amazing it is to have a boyfriend that is almost the same size as me. It means I can wear his sweaters and get a bit of the oversized look without looking like a grandpa, but that wouldn't be bad either would it? haha.
Yes it was raining till yesterday, I don't leave the house since Sunday. Thank God for Star Wars and Mad Men to keep me entertained!
Seems like my complaining post really worked since I just woke up to beautiful sunlight :)

Putting together two of my latest obsessions, colour and peter pan collars. I have been also very into ribbons, wanting to put them on in each and every outfit I wear.
Not many words today. It is without a doubt that the weather truly influences me, and this almost non-stop rain is killing me. Don't be fooled by the pictures, these were taken on Sunday in a rare moment of sun shine.

This is was one of my favourite outfits of a long time. My favourite floral skirt+my favourite boots+my new favourite bag.
I am quite happy because I found the perfect little leather satchel. I've already seen it at the Zara store, but I wouldn't give €35 for a small bag, even if it was so pretty and all leather! So when I spotted this beauty at one of the Zara stores here at Madeira for only €16 I couldn't leave it behind... But I did, since I've told myself that I was done with the sales. But as soon as I got to my boyfriend's house I really regretted it! And how awesome was the boyfriend to drive back to the store with me to get it (because I was sure that it would disappear soon!).
The boots look grey-ish, but that's because of the sun. And excuse my sloppy hair. I really need a new haircut and this is the way I've been having it lately, an untidy bun.

I've been enjoying a sunny and warm weather since I got to Madeira last Sunday, 21ºC. It's so refreshing to have a Spring like weather, even if its middle January, just before travelling to a much colder place. I could seriously get away with wearing no tights during the day, but after the sun sets the temperatures drop, so I better not. But regardless I've been sporting thin clothes such as this lovely skirt, that I missed, with only a light jacket for the breeze. I also missed my red tights, as red is indeed my favourite colour to wear, and I find that these bright up an outfit immediately.
And I just realized that everything in this outfit is Zara, except for the tights. An outfit portraying my devotion to it, haha!

I'm really excited to bring you a $100 giveaway from Shopbop.com! Shopbop is an online shopping boutique with a collection of over 100 designer brands, and they're offering one of my lucky readers a $100 gift card.
I did some browsing myself and found these two Tibi dresses and found them to be perfect for me to wear in London. The blue Ruffle Dress layered over a chunky knit cardigan and a pair of brogues would be perfect for some lovely blogger meetings again! And the Chunky Sweater dress is the thing to wear with some ankle boots and a warm trench coat to hit those amazing markets and shop!
As I've told you, I got two berets for Christmas, to join my other ones, and now looks like I have a small collection! So I decided to post some webcam pictures I took while wearing them, sorry for the poor quality but they're a lot funnier to take this way :) I decided to just include what I call "Parisian berets" here, though I have more, with other shapes. Sadly, one of my favourites, a dark green knitted beret, was lost while I was in London last November, I blame the underground for being too hot and making me to keep putting hats, scarves and coats on and off.
