Subtlety


It's so hard not to fall in love with this charming lady.
Nothing else to say.

Red & Retro

When school gives you more than two free days at once during the most hectic year you can remember, jump out of joy! Although time is never enough to do all you want, at least Carla had the chance to go out and take some pictures. As you can see, she's by herself in all of them, except for one in which she appears with a photographer's daughter who took the pictures. The daughter, not the photographer.

El Perro del Mar







Why is she (her voice, her tunes, her hair, her face, her outfits...), oh, why is she so so so amazing?
I love El Perro del Mar!

Four days are never enough


Going abroad and having the chance to spend four whole days in a city is brilliant. However, time always goes by too quickly when you feel at ease and there are plenty of things to visit. That's what happened to me in Oxford.

Thinking I would have too much time, I looked for interesting addresses on the Internet. I found the kind of vintage shops I don't get to shop at where I live, and wrote their location down. Once in Oxford, I kept procrastinating until it was too late. So it's sad to admit that I could only see Unicorn and other appealing shops from the outside. So, all my excitement about coming back with bags full of relics never came true. I did though WINDOW-shopping. That's all.

Despite having no luck with all the vintage items I planned to buy, I did find lovely shops. One of them, whose name is Northlight, delighted me with many Scandinavian designers' thingies (from home stuff to clothes). I bought a Marimekko bag and socks with the exact same pattern for just 38 pounds. I'll try to post some pictures soon... Some other purchases were: English collocation dictionaries, DVDs, a dress, a body scrub, dark chocolate + orange Harrod's biscuits, presents for my family...


Note to myself: Never again leave your purchases for the very last moment

Valentino - Autumn/Winter 2008-09





Volumes! Volumes! Volumes! I love this new collection by Alessandra Facchinetti, despite the lack of more red in those chiffon-made dresses. Have a look at the beautiful lace details!

Party at the hotel




In August we both went to the seaside. We spent some days in a small village in Asturias (Spain). These pictures were taken in the party that took place on our last day there.

August in Deutschland VI

Heidelberg is such a must

Heidelberg again

So, the second house I want to own

Who wouldn't love to picnic in a place like this one?

August in Deutschland V

Old car, again in Ludwigsburg

In my opinion, a good example of the German spirit
