WHAT I WORE SERIES- BLACK AND BLUE

 

Hi dears,

Dubai’s weather is amazing now.. with temperatures during the day of 25C and in the night of 20C. It is just paradise!

Still, we have some AC issues in the office and you will always see me with some jacket or scarf in work days and lately with a very stubborn flu. This is what I wore few days ago to go to work and I got quite a lot of compliments.

I love the colour combination – black and petroleum blue. Normally, I love colours but I am pretty conservative when it comes to the business attire. The skirt is from Fabrika, the blouse is from New Look and the jacket from G2000. The pendant is from Tous and the chain bracelet and bag are from Aldo.

The earrings are part of my precious collection of earrings of the world. These ones are a beautiful present from Nacho and Elianne- Luv u guys!- when they went to Italy some months ago. They have a beautiful story behind as they are handmade by a very special artisan and are made of opaque glass.

I love earrings. Whenever I travel, I always buy at least a pair and I have a nice collection by now. I love the ethnicity, uniqueness and the recovered memories of that trip or of the people that bought them knowing of my weird addiction.

Maybe I shouldnt say addiction, I dont like the connotations of that word. My husband loves this picture- for some reason I dont understand- I look like a shar-pei! Sorry..  Mmm.. looking for a better word for my ehem.. addiction.. the English Theasurus brings this up..

This pic is much better. For some reason my hubby always enjoys taking pictures of me when I am talking or eating or sleeping but when I pose, with a  beautiful landscape behind, all smiles and with my better angle, it doesnt interest him. Lol.

Luv,

Lil

WHAT I JUST LOVE..AND YOU TOO! CHANEL

Just in case you are outside of this World and missed the huge media coverage that this Chanel event had during the Paris Couture Fashion Week, I have created a playlist with the ins, the outs and the abouts of the show. If you have any problem with the video embedded, just go to the What I Just Love Youtube Chanel. There you will find 3 videos, one with the show, one with interview to the attending celebs ( RiRi was there!) and another one with the backstage.

Chanel showed an amazing collection Autum/ Winter 2013-2014 in an ‘aftermath’ theater. The looks – a bit industrial, maybe not too haute couture- are amazing to me. Maybe it is not what many Chanels were expecting but creativity has its ways and same as Dior is less rock and roll now that Galliano is gone, Chanel has full right to change from time to time and give us surprises.

I like the fact that this Haute Couture is more wearable. At the end of the day, you don’t attend red carpet events everyday (not yet!) and I find it fun.. to break the rules. Maybe in coming years, we will see people in jeans and pajamas (ok we have seen already some pajama-looking gowns already) going to pick up their awards, getting married or attend dinners at the G8 Summit.

Luv,

Lil
