VIDEO: what’s in my bag

It has been way too long since my last video, but today I finally had a chance to film a little something for you guys. About two weeks ago, a reader asked on Instagram if I could share a “what’s in my bag” post or video about my Valentino medium lock bag. Aside from the fact that I also like seeing other people’s bags, I think this gives you a pretty good idea of exactly how roomy the bag is. Personally, I use this bag almost every single day and it has plenty of space to carry everything I need for my daily life/routine. If I could, I’d get the medium lock bag by Valentino in every color – that’s how much I love it.

CRAVINGS: Louis Vuitton Noé

It’s no secret that bucket bags have become quite the must-have since last year. It took me a while for them to grow on me, but now I have officially fallen for the convenient every-day bag. There were quite a few different bucket bags on my radar, including the obvious Mansur Gavriel, this version by Saint Laurent and a few others. In the end, however, I kept coming back to the Noé by Louis Vuitton.

In strict chronological terms, the Noé is the second oldest Louis Vuitton bag. Its birth date of 1932 places itself at the start of an exceptional decade that saw the creation of other Louis Vuitton icons: the Speedy, the Alma and the Keepall.
The story of its creation is the stuff of legend. Looking for a stylish way to transport his valuable vintages, a champagne producer placed a special order with Gaston-Louis Vuitton. He designed a timelessly simple bucket shape, which could hold four bottles upright and a fifth upside down, secured with a supple leather drawstring. He called the bag Noé – in reference, it is said, to the biblical hero who, when he left the Ark after the Flood, planted vines on the mountains of Ararat.” (via)

OUTFIT: meet luna

Some bags are just bags, others are more than that! Let me introduce you to the Luna Bag ♥ This year, my parents were crazy generous for Christmas and spoiled my sister and I with new bags by Porsche Design. She got the Cosmo, I got the Luna! Both perfect in their own way, very different but also kind of similar. Just like the two of us. Aside from the fact that Luna is the most perfect buttery soft leather and every-day bag, there is also a very personal story behind the two bags, which makes the gift so special for the both of us. Trust me, you’ll be seeing this baby around A LOT!

CRAVINGS: statement pieces

I feel like sometimes one piece can make an entire outfit. As you guys know, I love timeless items in my wardrobe, which are usually not the most exciting. But if you add a big sparkly necklace or a cool patterned sweater, it can easily transform a look. So this week’s cravings (one day late – I know …) are all about those pieces. Take that amazing Hoss Intropia jacket for example, all you’d need with that are some black pumps, skinny jeans & a simple shirt underneath and you’re ready to go. Or the way those shorts are styled on the model: all black + one eye-catching piece. It is such a simple equation, but it works every time – trust me :) Which of these items is your favorite?
