Yesterday I left the cold and grey Paris to start my holiday vacation that will go on until the end of August. Yes, it's a long time, but I haven't been on holiday since December, so I really need this simmer break.
Currently I'm in Santa Barbara with the boyfriend at his family house, after I'll spent some time with my own relatives in Italy.
Have a good summer you all and see you in September!
Thanks to the last and latest Harry Potter's movie, Emma Watson is having her big moment right now.
After the July issue of Vogue (wearing Prada), here she comes again on the top of Harper's Bazaar UK August issue (in Emilio Pucci).
Which one do you prefer?
I think Emma looks definitely too dark and witchy on the Harper's Bazaar cover, with that weird bob. I prefer the glossy and gorgeous Vogue version, with that futuristic Prada gown opposed to more obvious velvet Pucci.
I'm still doubtful about Mary-Kate and Ashley's new handbag line, freshly launched with a party at Barney's.
The Olsen twins proved themselves to be real fashion designers scoring a CFDA Award nomination this year and I do love their clothing line. But the bags... Hum, I'm not sure there.
The whole history makes me think about Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice-turned-fashion designer who recently added to her ready-to-wear line some luxurious handbags. Again, her clothes work well as chic evening gowns and in a way that its truly hers, but her bags just don't tell me nothing.
The same for these The Row purses: they might be beautiful and practical, but they don't bring anything new or unseen to the magical Designer Bags World.
Looking at them, I would say these bags are from Céline or Alexander Wang, with the only difference that they aren't.

How much I love Charlotte! Such a nice, elegant girl and talented actress! Seen she doesn't go out very often- especially now that she's pregnant with her third child- I had to look back in my archives to treat myself with a little Charlotte cameo, appropriate for this 14th of July. Vive la France!
