Today I'm loving...

... these fun and quirky Lanvin Happy Holidays cards:

I really can't think of a better or more chic way to wish someone happy holidays!

Today I'm loving...

... Tommy Hilfiger's absolutely lovely library shirt dress, that I just spotted in the Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2013 ad campaign.
I am a huge book worm (I even have a blog about fashion books, you can check it out here), so showing that off in the clothing that I wear too appeals to me. Plus the dress seems really flattering as well!
So I will definitely try to look around in order to see if I could order this dress somewhere!

What I think of the Isabel Marant for H&M collection

As some of you may remember, I am a huge H&M fan, and I shop there regularly. That's why I am always excited when they have a new designer collaboration coming up, and this year's collection, the Isabel Marant for H&M is no exception. The release date of the Isabel Marant for H&M collection is November 14th, by the way, so only 10 more days to go!

I think the early H&M designer collections were really good, but I have been rather disappointed by several of the more recently, unfortunately. But I think the Isabel Marant collection is rather good, because it's true to her style as I know it, but it also feels very suitable for H&M, which is a good thing, if you ask me. I guess this is something that might not be appreciated by those who buy from H&M's designer collection in order to get something more luxurious or fancy, though, because I wouldn't exactly call this collection very luxurious, it's more like H&M's style usually is, I think.

That said, I do think the collection has some cool pieces, though I can't say I love them all. This jacket is pretty cute though (and very Isabel Marant, somehow):
And the shoes in this collection look cool too.

So since I live in a country where people don't really stand in line for the H&M designer collections, I think I might stop by H&M when the collection is released to see if I can get something from it.

I definitely see an improvement compared to the last collection, though, which is really nice! Keep it up, H&M!

Really into turquoise for winter

Turquoise might not be a color most of us associate with winter, but after having seen my co-workers gorgeous turquoise pashmina keep her very warm on a chilly autumn day recently, I started thinking that turquoise is actually a really good color for fall, precisely because it's not "over done". So I shopped a pair of turquoise driving shoes (but not on ASOS, this time, since I promised in my previous post that I would not post any more ASOS shopping posts for a while, but on Ebay):
 As well as a turquoise pashmina scarf, of course, since my co-worker's scarf was what caused this epiphany in the first place:
