Vero Moda

I was lucky enough to win a gold bag from Vero Moda for the opening of their London flagship shop on Oxford St. In reality, I won the bag for my mom, because I wanted to get her a little something special for being so supportive while trying to get Little Fille off the ground. Numerous picture messages later, she decided on a beautiful cardigan - and told me to get something for myself too. I grabbed this winter maxi dress - which was about a foot too long - trusty sewing machine to the rescue again.

H&M scarf

Not as to disappoint, this outfit's blingee brought to you by Cruella Deville.

Mini fashionistas

Remember my darling cousin Angeline who made me my amazing wallet? My aunt sent me some photos of her and her sister Celestine on Halloween that I just had to share.

Angeline was the toughest pirate in town.

Cel was Lady Gaga....and she made the costume herself - with t-shirts and tie-dye. So innovative! I've created a little monster ;)

These two are definitely fashion designers in the making - already designing and sewing their own clothes. I'm so proud of them!

The Essence of Autumn

There's no way I'll win this, but I thought it would be fun anyway. The lovely Kristy Elena at Vogue Gone Rogue is having a very generous blog giveaway - a stay in a beautiful Greek Villa. I've never been to Greece, but have been known to randomly act out scenes from "Mamma Mia," so please help make this dream one step closer to reality.

The theme of the contest is "The Essence of Autumn" which to me means, it's getting cold so warmth is your best friend. Whoever gets the most likes on Bloglovin' wins, so if you're feeling particularly kind, please go ahead and like this post!

Outfit details:
Little Fille fleece turban
Vintage coat from Wolf and Gypsy
Wilfred cropped jumper
American Apparel leotard
Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots

As I promised, no outfit post is complete without a blingee:
Make your own Glitter Graphics

If this blingee doesn't give me an edge over competition, I don't know what will.
So, press like for the sake of all things sparkly.

Also, definitely check out Kristy Elena's wonderful entry to be Sunglass Hut's full-time blogger! Her video is amazing, and I really think she'd be perfect for the job.

Sans wig and bottom lid eyeliner:

I love halloween. Love, love, love it. Every year (post trick or treating years), me and my friends Rene and Phil have always gone to Church street to look at the amazing costumes and generally feel transported to Halloweentown. That, and a late night snack at Wendy's. Unfortunately, ever since I've moved to London, it's been a whole other story. Case in point, two years ago me and Daniel were supposed to go out as Wayne and Garth, but he refused to put on his wig and glasses, leaving me as a Garth-less Wayne in a crowded London club.

On the Friday, I went to a "Dystopian" themed party and dressed as Rachael from Blade Runner. The only other person dressed up was the DJ - who was a robot. FML.

On actual Halloween, I went as Edie Sedgwick, but I think I channeled a Goldie Hawn from 'Laugh In' type of vibe, only weird looking with a bulbous face.

From across the Atlantic, Phil and Rene were Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol. It's nice when friends are lame enough to be lame together from miles and miles away.

Here's Rene as Warhol


Rene, Nino, Suze and Phil. <3 br="">
More photos of them to come!

What did I do that evening? Braved my horror-film phobia and watched a free screening of The Shining. It actually didn't frighten me too much on viewing - but the scary thoughts remained afterwards and I had to sleep with the lights on. Dork alert.

PS Yes, those are the Litas again. We're friends forever. Or until I break an ankle.
