I’ve been monitoring online stores that carry 3.1 Phillip Lim (SSENSE and Shopbop) and I cannot seem to find this sheer white sleeveless top with yellow strip panels from his spring/summer 2012 collection. It’s one of my favourite pieces from his show (tried to photograph it from all directions while sitting on the front row) and I’m surprised it hasn’t arrived yet. I hope it’s not one of those ‘for-show’ pieces that they don’t end up producing.
I love it, I need it, I must have it. That yellow and white top needs to come into my life. Stat! I even went to the store in New York last month to look for it to no avail. I ended up buying a pair of mesh trousers and mesh boots instead.

The clutch obsession continues. Corto Moltedo made this gorgeous clutch bag festooned with metal spiderwebs and a bejeweled spider.

I bought this navy veiled beanie designed by Stephen Jones for Jil Sander at the Paris boutique during Paris fashion week and I’ve been wearing it almost every day. It’s one of my favourite purchases this season and I’ve gotten major mileage out of this (very) expensive hat. I regret not buying the white one. What’s annoying is that it took an amazing genius like Stephen to come up with the idea of combining something so terribly banal (beanie) with something so chic (netted veil). The result, is, phenomenal! I can’t believe no one ever thought of it before and could’ve sold it for a friendlier price.

Don’t forget to pick up the latest (spring/summer 2012) issue of 10 Magazine UK. Anna Mouglalis, in Chanel, is on the cover. Ten is one of my favourite fashion glossies! Pringle of Scotland recently collaborated with my beloved Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou and they’ve invited their favourite personalities for this cute travel Q&A feature. Anna Dello Russo, Antonio Berardi, Katie Hillier, Susie Bubble and Jen Brill (among many others) also took part and all of us wore pieces from the 10 x Pringle collaboration. I sent in a cheeky photo that my bf took of myself, dozing away at the Swissair lounge at Zurich airport in January.
