A Tuesday dose of droolworthy items

Currently obsessed with these few items, which I'm observing from afar because a) they are way out of reach financially, b) I have no clue who makes them or c) the dreaded "sold out" phenomenon.

But looking at them makes me feel inspired and happy nonetheless so I feel like it's only right for me to share them with you :)

Exhibit A:
I saw this on a random tumblr, of course I have no idea who it is, where it originates from (like most things on tumblr) but this shirt and the way she styled it took my breath away. It's so interesting. I love the rough texture of the denim and the shoulder patches with the softness of the feminine silk print backing. Any ideas on who designs the shirt? Love.

Exhibit B:
I blame this on Tamara Ecclestone's cringeworthy (but captivating at the same time) new reality show aptly titled "Billion $$ Girl" - she's always rocking 3 Cartier Love bracelets, one in each colour and they are beautiful pieces of jewelry.
Considering they start at around $3000 without any diamonds, I'm terrified to even dare think of how much a diamond one would cost... but gorgeous pieces nonetheless. One day, Sandra, one day!

Exhibit C:
I've been drooling over these on various sites (Saks Fifth Avenue, Luisaviaroma and Net-a-porter carried them), they're sets of rings by Maison Martin Margiela and they are meant to be worn one on each finger. They come plated in gold, rose gold and white gold and they're perfect. They're sold out and I hope they become re-stocked sometime in the next couple of months because they're a heavy contender for my annual "nice Christmas present to myself". Who needs boyfriends for the holidays, really? ;)

Note: I have also spotted these on Rosie from Made in Chelsea. She's a questionable character on the show but she has great style.

Hope you're having a great day!

PS: we're halfway done through Blogvember... woohoo!


  1. I'm so tempted to watch Petra Ecclestone's show aha. These are similar but not the same http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Plain-Bands-Ring/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1763293&cid=4175&Rf900=1544&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=200&sort=-1&clr=Gold

  2. beautiful pics!!!i'm following you!!!amazing your blog!!!

  3. I really like the Cartier bracelets but starting at $3000? Wow! Like you, I can't imagine the cost of the bracelets with diamonds.

  4. I think you're the only one that's happy that we're halfway done blogvember! I LOVE it :)

  5. Net a porter still has the bronze version of them :)


  6. The girl in the first pic reminds me a bit of Tesa http://magnifique-fashionblog.blogspot.com/ Love her blog xx

  7. That is Taylor Tomasi Hill, who just left her post as Marie Claire's style and accessories director for Moda Operandi. I love her street style as well!

  8. In the first pic, it's Taylor Tomasi Hill, she has great style. She was a fashion editor at Marie Claire US until last week.
    No idea who makes that shirt though,


  9. Every time I read one of your blogposts about jewelry, I have the urge to spend money. You have such great taste, I love it!

    Swarovski used to make a bangle that resembled the cartier love bracelet, I tried to look it up but I don't see it on the site anymore. I too strive to one day to be able to afford that one!

  10. I've been wanting a love bracelet for about 7 years, lol I'm only 22 but I also cringe at the idea of a diamond. I see it as a present for myself one day. :-) I thought Petras sister had a show not Petra?


  11. yes you are right!! will correct that now

  12. Love that shirt and Christmas present from me to me :)

  13. Hi sandra! i just started a blog of my own and i would love for you to check it out!
    and btw, that is a beautiful top. its modern with a vintage touch =]

  14. I love that first shirt too but have no idea who makes it- sorry :(

  15. Obsessed with that shirt..it does look a little bit of diy job but you never know. The love bracelets are amazing..one can dream x


  16. love taylor tomasi hill! she's one of my ultimate "style icons"...the shirt is by dries van noten, btw ;)

  17. Hey Sandra,
    If you want some good dupes of those Cartier bracelets you should check out the bangles at Coach. I just received them as a gift from my lovely sister and I love them! They come in a set of 3 (gold, rose gold, and silver). They look good stacked but I usually wear one of them by itself.

    Great eye btw! I've been looking at those Cartier bracelets for a year (but the plain ones, not the diamond ones).

  18. i just wanted to share this link (it´s a video of how she would style someone for fall!!) with you if you like taylor tomasi hill - she got such a great sense of style!


  19. I have a top Rosie has and when I saw her wear it on MIC i nearly threw it in the bin. I hate her so much from what I can see on the show she is not very nice!!

  20. Have you seen these. They are quit similar to the MMM rings for a fraction of the price http://www.asos.com/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1763316
