twisted sense of love

Naf Naf vest, Armani x dress, Gianfranco Ferré patterned high waisted pants, Marc Jacobs shoes, Max Mara socks

It isn`t exactly a sheep or any cuddly toy. I got this beauty(yes the white one) at Naf Naf. What is
incredible about the big streets here in Paris, is that there are great shops everywhere, even more,
is that all these great boutiques are really warm inside! So I got into Naf Naf and found it. I would really
like to even sleep with it, but I do like it, too much, so I tried to pair it with these Gianfranco Ferré pants
I bought time ago saying they were so useful and versatiles, but of course,
it is the first time I am using them.
Same for those Max Mara socks, I liked them way too much, but there is one big
distance in the things I like so much and the things I use everyday( saying it and thinking of my
favourite little black dress from Topshop I hadn`t used yet).
And just a last one, as I was walking today near the Eiffel tower, just a little bit of snow started
to fall, I was alone, but I smiled. I loved it.


Thank you for the feature of Hypeed. You can watch it Here

So Sammy got me out of my bedroom (aka The Dungeon) because I have been there for soo long and told me to put some clothes on cause it will feel better and I have to admit after taking these pictures and putting on some REAL clothes instead wearing my PJ's I feel better!

Trip to Mexico Circa 1966

We just found these pictures of our grandmother and grandfather vacationing in Mexico and love them! They are from their trip to Acapulco in 1966. The bathing caps are just so flower power! We wanted to put these up and celebrate our grandmother because she is so special to us and she is turning 89 years old next week! Yahoo! xoBeckerman girls

Cheated Hearts- the sequel

Here's the rest of the Cheated Hearts shoot! The full interview (and some other pictures) are here.




I forgot to mention before that the Garbelle jacket is the one that Cyrena made for me for my birthday. You should have heard me when I opened it, I SQUEALED.

I love doing photo shoots with the boy because it's so quick and easy. This whole shoot took an hour and thats including hair and makeup. I have some shoots that we did a couple of years ago stored on my hard drive so I'm gonna dig them out and post them for you.

I was completely inspired by the hair on Alexander Wang's runway. I think this is from the spring 2010 show.

I totally stole that look for the Cheated Hearts shoot. It's super easy to do. I just clipped in some hair extensions and braided! The great thing about this is that you don't even need to worry about really blending the extensions or where you clip them because you'll be braiding them anyway. Have a go :)

Zara fringed, American Apparel acid wash shorts, Bebe boots, Zara parka

Frankly, I just managed to take off my parka for 10 minutes. NO MORE. 
 These hold ups, nevertheless, are dangerously sexy, and were enough to "hold" the icy weather here. 
Today I tasted the best crêpe in my whole life; they were actually 2: The first one, 
ham & cheese , and the second one: chocolat (in french of course).  What an amazing
and incredible taste, la cuisine française is really gettin`  into me.
I also finished attending the PRÊT À PORTER PARIS,  a great event that got together new 
brands and designers. It was totally interesting and I definetely loved many things there. 
   I just love this glasses, and though they are not meant to be for the sun, they do 
look amazing. I got them when I went to see the 3D Avatar movie.
