Wanted
It’s highly time for the first Wanted list of this year, mesdames et messieurs. As always I have chosen a few things that I love or would love to have:

(1) the gentlewoman isn’t really a surprise, I’m never getting tired of saying how much I love this magazine. A few weeks ago I checked the website in order to learn about the new issue and the release date, but nothing has been revealed yet. So I was really happy when Natalie shared the new cover with me via Twitter earlier this week. I must say I really like it and what I might  like even more is the prospect of interviews with Susan Sarandon and Isabel Marant. Simply put: Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! (2) I’m not quite sure if I just like the idea of striped shoes or if I would actually wear them. (3) I heard so many good things about that mask that I’m really tempted to try it. (4) My Instagram account is flooded with pictures of coffee, so it may be hard to believe that I am serious tea drinker as well. I love the simplicity of this enamel tea pot and would love to have it around in my kitchen. (5) To find the perfect T is not as easy as it might seem in the first place. The Gap menswear section is a great option in my opinion. (6) the row. Again. I simply can’t help myself. The price tag might be ridiculous, their range of products on the other hand is ridiculously good looking.

Do you have some current favourites? I would love to hear…

(1) the gentlewoman (2) Zara: Pumps (3)  Aesop: Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask (4) The old faithful shop: Enamel Tea Pot (5) Gap: The Essential Crewneck T (6) the row: shoulder bag

This was not planned, but apparently this week is all about dresses. I think that I just might pick a whole different topic for next post, but I thought that this beauty is definitely worth sharing. What I love most about that dress is pretty simple to explain: I don’t have the feeling to have seen it already like a hundred and ten times. Although maybe I should point out here that never-seen-before does not necessarily equal wow-this-is-outstanding. Sometimes a look or a garment can be very different from what we are used to see and sometimes we can not stop ourselves from thinking that it probably should have stayed that way. In this case, quite the contrary crossed my mind. (Did I mention that this picture is part of an editorial published in the gentlewoman? No? I should have because those ones never disappoint me.)
As you can read above its creator is no other than Nicolas Ghesquière, who is no longer designing for Balenciaga from this month on. Fifteen years as a head designer for a label seems like an eternity and almost utopian when you take into consideration that the game of musical chairs is reigning today’s  fashion industry. Just like everybody else, I’m curious to see what he is about to do next.

Right now, I’m sitting in front of this picture and try to figure out how and why exactly it speaks to me. Yes, it ticks the box of  „a nice black and white shot“. And being printed in The Gentlewoman speaks quite naturally in its favour as well (they rarely got it wrong). A little black dress made out of lace? Bring it on! What is bugging me are all those flower shaped motifs attached to it. Being white they are not precisely hiding, radiating describes it probably far better. If someone would have told me about an idea describing this precise dress, my only imaginable reaction would be a raised eyebrow. Now, that I actually see it, I might be raising both.
