A museum and a martini…

A perfect NYC day…
It started with a visit to the Guggenheim Museum to peruse their current exhibit, Picasso Black & White.
It culminated in a quaint UES bar with a delicious pear & cinnamon martini.

Drawing on the days planned adventure I used Picasso’s black and white theme as a basis for my outfit colour palette.

Cardigan – Calvin Klein
Top – BCBGMaxazria
Jeans – DL1961
Shoes – Peep Toe
Bag – Chanel

While I have to admit not all Picasso works are created equal, I did want to share two of my favourite pieces from the exhibit with you.
From the very beautiful to the very disturbing, the collection displayed is incredible viewing.

Now if only I was one of those fortunate enough to have a Picasso in my private collection…

My Big “BANGS” Theory!

I had a theory, a theory that:
–          Brunettes with bangs have more fun
–          Bangs would make me look a bit younger (perhaps from fear and hope as my birthday approaches….)
–          I would love them on me
–          My husband wouldn’t…
 
So I decided to take the leap.
As I went for a quick trim (at the gorgeous Butterfly Salon – a must try!!) i watched the hairdresser excitedly cut off 12 inches of hair…

If it’s good for Kim K and the first lady, it’s good for me….
Bangs are back baby.

Colour, sparkle & shine – always sublime!

Sparkles and colour are always a nice outfit addition – holiday season or not (though I for one am in denial that the holidays have past).
Ready for wherever the days adventure may take you. Coffee with the girls, a stroll through the city, or a sneaky early evening cocktail.

Mix black with some bold coloured garments and throw in a sparkly jacket – off you go.

Being on another continent these past few weeks has certainly not stopped me shopping, and these seasons sales were good to me!.
Here are just a few of the finds I am loving at the moment.

Pop on this MANGO cropped Sequins & Beads jacket, paired with this fun MANGO Maxi Studs top.
(Speaking of MANGO – how good does Kate Moss look in their campaign. GORGE!!)

Now we all want to brighten up our winter – an easy way to do it is with some bold pants.
I found these great bright red pair on the sale rack at H&M! They are super comfortable, with a nice cut suitable for either work or play!

Every outfit is at it’s best when finished off with a Louboutin shoe – here with the gorgeous “Decollete” glossy leather pump.

Sparkle the winter away…

Happy New Year!!

NYELast night as I faced the cold rainy Swedish weather in open toe Jimmy Choo pumps to cheer in the new year, I came to a few realizations.

(1) Carrie Bradshaw would never let a small thing like weather curtail her shoe options.
(2) Sequins and sparkle are the NYE uniform, no matter what continent you’re on
(3) There are two kinds of Scandinavian blonde – the real kind that is pristine and enviable. Or the second kind which has been bleached to within an inch of it’s life.
(4) This is the time when you wish you had made BFF’s with at least three taxi drivers.

What a ride 2012 has been – I can’t wait for the adventures of 2013 and here’s hoping we can all keep our New Year’s resolutions (has anyone, ever?????).

Wishing you all the very best for 2013!!!

Love and Louboutin’s
