And that's who I am

Of course not everything about you comes across when you blog, especially not when the blog you have is mostly about material things, like mine. So in case you want to know a bit more about me, let me tell you a few things about myself, that you may or may not know by now, using some pretty images:

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

(all images in this post are from the amazing Tumblr blog ... and that's who I am)

Today I'm loving...

... this limited edition Christian Dior snow globe.
I mean, remember how I mentioned that I loved the Lanvin figurine I showed you guys the other day? Well, I still think this is a great present for any fashionista who has it all, or merely prefers to choose her own fashion items, but this Dior snow globe might be even better!

The look shown in the snow globe is of course the iconic New Look, that first came out in 1947 and made Christian Dior a legend all over the world. Something worth remembering, for sure. And what better way to do that, than to put it into a snow globe?

I seriously think I need to start collecting fashion themed figurines and snow globes, there are just so many cute ones out there these days it seems!

Today I'm loving...

Finnish designer Minna Parikka's shoes.

Her cartoon ones (even Lady Gaga has a pair!) are the most famous ones, of course:

But some of her other designs are quite amazing too:

Newly shopped

For those of you who have missed it, ASOS has a great discount of 25 % on their own brand, that has some excellent stuff, so I found it hard to resist getting some things for myself, even though I should actually be shopping for presents for others at the moment.

One of the things I got was this studded jacket:

Which was not really that necessary since I got another studded jacket a while ago, but I have actually been wearing that a lot, so another one would probably be really useful too.

And the second thing I got was this t-shirt with a skull print:
It just felt kind of Alexander McQueenish during one of the brands best eras, I guess.

What a perfect present for a fashionista!

Because what fan of Lanvin anyway, would not want to have an adorable Lanvin figurine, featuring of course the legendary head designer Alber Elbaz (one of the best designers of our time, if you ask me!)?

I for one would definitely be thrilled to recieve this for the holidays! Now I just have to find a way to bring it up with the hubby...

Today I'm loving...

... this really cute ALICE by Temperley poncho.

I have a really nice Missoni for Target poncho already, which I wore a lot last winter, so I actually think getting another poncho might be a good idea. And I love both the coloring and the pattern on this one, so nice!

Another pair of new lacey jeans

I mentioned how into lace looking jeans I am at the moment in a previous post, but since the pair I got earlier this week was a red pair, I really wanted an all black pair too. So I was lucky to run into these A Wear black skinny jeans over at ASOS (where I got the first pair too) as well:

It's kind of hard to show off the pattern, but I hope it comes across a little bit at least?

The reason I wanted a similar pair in black is that I just think it is easier to match with other stuff on a day to day basis. Let's see if I'm right!

What I have been hearting lately

Over at We Heart It, of course. (Click here to see my profile there)

I really need those designer band aids! They would make wearing band aids (which I do need sometimes, let's face it) so much more glamorous!
