Horses also get haircuts…

Left: Angie really loves horses...Right: Akris greige Ai horsehair bag

…And still Angelina Jolie wanted to be sure that no animal was harmed for the sake of her just purchased ¢5000,- Akris bag. Respect.

Digitalista M. likes: mint colored sneakers from Nike

Even if I wear heels most of the time, I can fall in love with sneakers. Like for example these cool mint colored Nike Air Royal Mid VT sneakers.  Aren’t these pastel candies cool for easter? Or what about this purple-on-purple monochrome explosion? The Air Royal Mid VT’s are constructed from a special synthetic that makes everything pop.

Digitalistic movie: Serge Gainsbourg Vie Heroïque

You all probably know the iconic song ‘Je t’aime moi non plus‘ by Serge Gainsbourg and a moaning Jane Birkin recorded in 1969, a year after the Sexual Revolution.

Catch of the Day: Chanel quilted denim sneakers

Chanel denim quilted sneaker

While M. and I are still drooling over my friend L.’s Chanel 2:55, we have to find a more affordable alternative until we can buy one ourselves. This might come in the shape of this Chanel denim quilted sneaker.

The sneakers also show some similarities with the Ked’s, but let’s be honest, these are Chanel, and that’s way cooler! Continue reading
