My Kelly

Hello dear followers!

Today I would like to introduce to you my 1946 Hermes Kelly bag!

I bought it second hand for an amazing price and it's one of the most precious items in my secret closet.

Do you like the colour? I think it's so versatile. You can wear it with black, blue and brown tones. Also, it's very unlikely that you will bump into someone who has the same!

The one question that always come up with vintage items is CONDITION. This bag has seen better days but isn't it normal for something that is 66 years old to have a few wrinkles? A bag is made to be worn, not to sit around in a box!!!

I hope you enjoy this post.

Antique ring

Dear followers!

Today I want to share with you one of my latest Antique finds. In contrast with many people, I adore Antique jewellery. Most of the times, you wouldn't be able to find such pieces in a modern shop, especially not at the same price. I love the fact that every item has its own history and has been around for longer than I have! 

So this is my antique smoky quartz 9ct gold ring. Didn't need re-sizing when I bought it so I think it was meant to be mine! Don't you love all the detail? Such a perfect ring that you can wear day and night!

Hello everybody!

I find the end of the sale season terribly depressing so I went to have a look around the high street for some new season beauties. And this is what I found in H&M...RABBITS!

I am in love with this print! They used it to make lots of different garnments, dresses, tops, etc. I chose a peter pan collar blouse.

Quality is not bad for H&M...100% viscose! Price 12.99£ GO FOR IT!
A little tip: as it's for the divided section, go for 1 to 2 sizes bigger than normal!

Dear all,

my post today is about two of my favourite brands, Miu Miu and Les Nereides.

I bought the Miu Miu bracelet when it first came out at what seemed to be a very reasonable price (65£). Since then the price has gone up considerably. This is not only true for their jewellery but for shoes, bags and clothing too. I find this a bit annoying since the design and the quality is exactly the same. They should be careful not to lose their loyal customers.

I discovered Les Nereides about 6 years ago when they still had their shop on King's road. Since then, I have accumulated a little collection of their pieces. I love everything they do, including the funky N2 collection. This bracelet is my latest buy, an absolute bargain in the sale!

I hope you like them as much as I do!

Cleaning out the SecretCloset

It's that time of the year again...I am trying to clean out my  closet.
This year I am finding it really hard to give these Dior shoes up.
They were such a good find and I wore them day in, day out for more than 5 years.
I know I'll never wear them again but they bring back such good memories...
So, shall I keep them or should they be heading for the bin?
