Strathcona Stockings

Due to my love of rolling up the jeans (I'm short and is the coolest way to make the long of the trousers to fit me and avoid to cut them, I hate to cut the long) and my love of wearing sandals with socks and my love of prints and my love of beautiful high socks (wow! too much love), this amazing brand is beloved by me.

Strathcona Stockings has a wonderful collection of fine handprinted stockings and socks with original prints, specially designed, photographed or collaged by Stratchcona and the pieces are made in limited quantities.



You can get them at their online store and don't panic because they ship internationally.

Can't wait to have a pair, or two or even three!

House of Holland x Superga

It's not a secret and I'm a creeper and platform lover and when my pair of creepers said "I'm done!"  
I had to look for another pair of good ones, actually I really want a pair of TUK or Underground creepers to replace the old ones but I will wait till December when I will have the chance to find the properly ones during my stay in London but in the meanwhile I decided to go for a sneakers pair.

I have to admit that I been late on this collaboration but when my eyes caught the work between House of Holland and Superga I couldn't get it out from my mind. And yes I been late for them because it has been a summer collaboration but I got them on sales so it has been a great deal!

Before moving to London I already admired the work of the English designer and since last winter I have been looking for the perfect pair of Superga's to join my shoes collection and I really found the right ones!

The winners were the model 2790 which has a 4 cm sole with the designer polka dots print and it is a limited edition so I can't go wrong with them! The print remind me of home so I definitely went for them!

Actually I'm thinking about getting the mint ones as well, love the color!

There is also the 2750 classic Superga model with great prints so check it out before the limited edition is gone!

You can get them straight from the Superga online store!

Front row: The Ragged Priest

Who has never dreamed with a black biker jacket completely full of spikes? Any? Well, actually I.
The main problem for myself was to find the properly biker, that's not that easy and the machine to put on the spikes, which I've been almost 3 years looking for it and it's impossible to find. But when I was living in London two years ago I found the solution for both problems. Walking around the multi-brand floor from Topshop Oxford Circus I saw a world full of gorgeous spikes everywhere, there was amazing biker jackets, sweaters and shorts everything with shining ones that took each piece to perfection. 

The brand's name is The Ragged Priest and all the pieces are done in London with love, the have a great vintage selection available online at ASOS marketplace.

You can buy online straight from their website, at selected Topshop stores and at selected worldwide stores.

They also had an amazing bleached collection last summer but their spiked pieces are the best for me, so stay tuned, check their website and buy before it's gone!

I would love to have the full collection and I'm ready to get some more spiked pieces as soon as I am back to London in December.
