At Home With Erin

One of my biggest style inspirations is the rebel-gone-model Erin Wasson.

Whilst I find that her style might be a wee bit too edgy for me to actually aspire to pull of on a day to day basis (it’s more Downtown LA than Oldtown Dubai), she end up on my mood boards on a regular basis.

This morning I read one of my favourite blog portals – Australian FELLT.COM (a MUST read) and saw images from a fashion editorial shot at Erin’s home. Looking at these images almost makes me feel like I am getting to know Erin (wishful thinking on my part).

My favourite ASH boots – noted!

More feminine than we’re used to seeing her. Stunning nonetheless.

In a pair of boots from Zadig & Voltaire – Erin being a face of the brand I am sure her closet is filled with Z & V freebies.

Quite possibly my favourite outfit combo: denim shirt / statement leather pencil skirt / black Louboutins.

Je voudrais…

No fashion blog is worthy of it’s name without a list of cravings so I thought I’d introduce it as a weekly feature.

This week I’m madly in lust with:

1. Moroccan kelim boots (I am almost considering a spontaneous weekend trip to Marrakesh just to lay my hands on a pair of these). Each pair is unique as they’re all made out of recycled old kelim rugs.

2. Orange Calèche bracelet from Hermès – a timeless piece that goes with pretty much everything!

3. Studded denim jacket from Ksubi – faded nad distressed for the perfect degree of rock chick. Available at netaporter.com (click HERE to get to the site).

Me and Mrs. R. Owens.

I started off so well with a spanking new post on my new site, only to go full radio silence  for almost a week! That is by no means acceptable blog decorum.

To my defense I got caught up with work projects that you may be interested in reading about: (if you follow me on instagram you would most probably have seen the above photo and recognized the stunning blonde amazon that is Camilla Skovgaard – shoe designer extraordinaire).

As usual with these kinds of projects there is an aura of mystery surrounding it up until the launch date and I can’t reveal much details (although I’d really really like to), but  all I can say for now is that I had the pleasure to work as a warderobe stylist for a promotional piece of art for Camilla that will be launching world wide in a few weeks time.

Working with Camilla – also known as Mrs. Rick Owens because of the fact that she doesn’t wear any other designers – was beyond inspiring and I’m really grateful that I got to play around in her showroom like closet, have a  preview of her new shoe and accessories line and last but not least get to know her as a person. She happens to be the most grounded and warm person that I have met in a really long time so the 3 days I got to spend with her did not at all feel like work.

Now recovering from 3 consecutive 14 h working days, maybe a cheeky episode of Mad Men + breakfast in bed is on the cards. / XXX

Welcome to my new blog!

Welcome to my new site!

To all the new readers: I have previously been blogging for 3 years under candyandcookie.com; to all of you that followed me from my old site I am so thrilled to have you here!

With my career venturing towards full time fashion I decided that it was time to launch a site hosting both my stylist portfolio as well as my blog. Now having said that, with growth there had to be maturity and so Candy & Cookie had to go. This time around hopefully I won’t get confused with a blog about baked goods quite as much!

To make this a short intro – welcome to my new site – something I have been working on for months if not longer!

How else is one to launch a fashion blog but with an outfit post?

(Photos  taken by Miss Laura ”buynowbloglater.com”  before we headed off to O Concept store for their launch of a new beauty section).

I wore a body suit by an awesome quirky Aussie brand called Maurie & Eve (available at West L.A boutique in Dubai), together with a belt from a market stall in India, jeans shorts from American Eagle and golden Jimmy Choo sandals.

There was also some arm candy: bangle by House of Harlow (also from West L.A), skull shambala bracelet from Radical Fashion and golden leather band from McQueen. Ring by Cartier.

Very much in love with the body suit – apart from the fact that the shade is a tan enhancer, I also really love the lace back. It makes is ultra feminine!

Beyond excited about blogging from my new site – speak soon! XXX
