my pretend closet
This is my pretend closet - my imaginary dressing room of wardrobe ensembles I am dreaming of these days. Though am seriously considering ACTUALLY buying that Zara shopper bag...
1 TOP Studio Dinner Jacket and Vest Top from Zara's March 2011 Collection
2 EARRINGS David Yurman White Freshwater Pearl with 18K Yellow Gold
3 BAG Plaited Shopper from Zara
4 MOBILE CASE from DVF. And as DVF.com says, "Your life is on your phone, doesn’t it deserve a little DIANE too?"
5 PANTS Narrow Leg Studio Trousers from Zara's March 2011 Collection
6 BRACELET a fabulous discovery of www.101gramsofeyecandy.blogspot.com: The Sutra Bracelet. 18K yellow gold Sutra link bracelet in bold size from DVF. And as eyecandy describes, "each link is engraved with the inspirational words: harmony, integrity, peace, abundance, love, knowledge, laughter, freedom and creativity." If that isn't a style piece, what is?
7 SHOES Christian Louboutin Newton Point Toe d’Orsay Pumps. Sexy, sexy, sexy!
1 TOP the perfect white button-down shirt is, of course, from... J.Crew!
2 EARRINGS applesofgold talks about hoop earrings as the oldest earrings ever unearthed by archaeologists. It was worn by royalty sometime between 2,500 to 3,000 BC and yet continues to be a fashion staple today. Timeless elegance.
3 WATCH TS7900-1 from Chotovelli, an Italian brand that specializes in big watches. This particular one is 52mm. They have even bigger ones! And they're available in Manila now via www.italwatchmanila.com. I looove the camel strap of the one above, but it's a plus that you can find additional straps (for other color - and cheaper - options) for your Chotovelli E Figli Pilot Watch from the Asprey kiosks in many malls in Manila.
4 BAG this Mulberry Alexa in Oak needs no introduction after its sold-out status last year. It's in-stock again via Net-a-Porter (but this photo is courtesy of myfashionlife).
5 PANTS J.Crew Veranda Pant
6 SHOES Dr. Seuss Converse Chuck Taylors showcasing the stripes of the Cat in the Hat's hat!
1 TOP striped fun from Zara
2 BAG featured in Massimo Dutti's 2011 Lookbook
3 BRACELET Oscar de la Renta Cabochon bracelet
4 BOOK Before Every After is a novel written by a Filipino and is soon to be released INTERNATIONALLY. It follows the story of Shelley, a young widow who discovers that her dead husband may in fact be very much alive - which would be wonderful if the bearer of this news wasn't her 32-year-old husband's 32-year-old grandson. Shelley's search for answers takes her from revolutionary Paris to medieval Prussia to ancient Venice, and finally to a place where she discovers whether love is truly everlasting. Follow Samantha Sotto in her countdown to her debut novel's release via www.theslightdetour.blogspot.com.
