H&M Blues feature

But I`ll start with the Miu Miu campaign this season!

Every detail is defined, well fitted and in someway girly.
The patterns and shades of colors are really vibrant, and I find everything really useful.
I think all the collection was really elegant and fresh
Plus, all of the shoes really got into me! I want at least one pair of them!

Anyone who doesn`t like those little birds and cats?
This last pair of shoes is, though is difficult, my favorite one.
I was checking everything on the net today, a usual sunday, preparing myself and
watching all uploads of fashion weeks in NY and Milan, and then I remembered I posted a look
for an H&M contest in lookbook (you should consider participating!), the theme: "The blues".
H&M editors and stylists would pick 5 winners per week: They would be seen
in the H&M webpage ( plus a 100 euros gift card)!
And just like that, I get in the H&M website, click on the blues section, and I was there!
(one of the 1st 5 winners!)
I was really happy!
You can see it on the collage they did here
And thanks editors of H&M for choosing me!
PS: As I told you next week is FASHION WEEK IN PARIS, I will be always around there to
take pictures of everyone I Love, luckily I`ll meet someone else there!
I`ll try to POST EVERYDAY!, so stay tunned!

A place to think

This garden is just across the street where I live, I really like to come here to relax or to read a little bit.
Nature is so refreshing.

Harem satin pants American Apparel, white tee Topman, vintage ring, zara boots, AA vintage belt.

I woke up really late today, I stayed up last night cause I went to watch Valentine`s Day,
it is not really what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it.
I like to come here to this garden, it is relaxing and you do feel "stress free" there.
Last, I came back home after visiting the exposition of Izis, a photographer that
took a part in taking the best photos of Paris.
Waiting in the line that 1 and a half hour was really worth it.
I`ll post some photos later!

IT`S PARIS FASHION WEEK really soon, I am thrilled and excited
cause everything is possible and I will watch a visual, fashion paradise.


PS: Thank`s to American Apparel for sending me these amazing pants. Love them!

Red Riding

Dress: Garbelle

Another photo shoot from the archives. This one was done while me and the boy were filming  season two of Secret Diary. We both had a day off and we got up super early to head over to Thom's place and shoot in his garden. The whole purpose of this shoot was just to practice I guess and I love that we did that... Thom wanted to practice make up, Cyrena wanted more dresses for her collection and the boy wanted to test out his lighting idea. Just being creative for creative's sake. 

Please note the black lipstick. Waaaaaaaaaay before Chanel did it!

I really love how Cyrena attached the hood to the dress. Like I said in my previous post there is also a Garbelle for Trainerspotter dress with a hood that I plan to post. All those images are on the boys computer and he's always using it when I want to. Eh hem :)

I program my alarm clock for Saturday morning, exactly at 8:30AM, really early for a weekend morning. “Tomorrow,
SONIA RYKIEL, I will get it all.”
I get some sleep hoping mon pull rykiel, stripes sweater, black shoes and leggings will be there.
F*%$ is late!!! 9:40AM, I open my eyes and realize, they are about to open the store, run.  I take off my pijamas, get tights, shorts, gloves, money, anything else... yes, my navigo pass.
On my way, I think,"this can`t be serious, maybe there is not even too much people".
I arrive to H&M, TOO MUCH PEOPLE, 200 persons waiting to get in the store, other 150 inside the store,  carrying 10 items from SR.
15 minutes later: I finally get in, I run, I look, SHOES!, they are here,
leggings!, no way! , yes, X-small!, mon pull rykiel, large, medium, sh*$! I walk, and see this marvelous dress, x-small too. I take it.
Mon pull!!.
5 minutes: Here it is! ( I start feeling happy)
I couldn`t find my stripes sweater.
Anyway, I`m happy.
Finally, a little bit of sunshine in Paris, name of the post: mon pull rykiel. This should be good!.
I sit in the computer, start writing my post (what I began upside), wondering if the photos will look good. I hope they will.



thanks for the feature in fashionfreaks

I didn`t find a better word to describe they way I loved this must-haves for me.

We had the most fabulous vacation in L.A, Vegas and Arizona with our family! And got to give Chloe lots of hugs and squished her a whole lot cause we missed our lil sis! Tons of pics and video's and exclusive Beckerman Bite Plate jewelry pieces are to COME!!!! See our first blog post of our vacation below at the Griffith Observatory! xox Beckerman girls!

Fun Fact: I am soooo excited that my family came to visit me in L.A! The Hollywood sign in the background actually reads "Sallywood." When we went to the Griffith Observatory they were putting up a letter, day by day, on top of the Hollywood sign to save the land from being developed on. In a few days, the sign eventually reads "Save the Peak."
