Happy 2013 !



To say goodbye to 2012 let me sharemy favorite purchases of the year:

The Helmut Lang leather leggings
The Stella Mccartney shoulder bag and the Michael Kors oversized watch
The Jerome Dreyfuss Carlos bag and the Isabel Marant Dicker boots
The Isabel Marant Lazio boots
The Christian Louboutin nude pumps

It's the last day of the year and of course I wish you a very happy 2013 full of joy. On top of that and although this blog is about fashion and therefore I always keep it light and fun, I wanted to send a special message. The thing is that I cannot ignore the financial crisis and the fact that many people (maybe some of you) have unexpectedly lost their jobs and are struggling as we speak. I'm very lucky to be on the safe side for now, after hard work and some luck I managed to find a very good and stable job. I know that health is the most important thing but at the end of the day, health is not paying your bills. Which is why I wish you all a year full of health, love and financial safety to you and your loved ones.

Obviously, I also wish you to be able to fuflfill all your fashion cravings in 2013 but don't feel bad if you cannot. I know the blogosphere can be ruthless, and seeing all the beautiful things out there can result in frustration if you're having a bad pass. Never forget that fashion is a distraction, not a necessity and in though times focus on what is real important, your loved ones.

Happy New Year to all my faithful and lovely readers ♥ !

xx Marta

  2. D'abord tres beaux achats 2012, parfaitement cohérents, ensuite ce que tu dis est tres bien formulé, c'est vrai que la blogosphère a parfois un côté indécent face à la crise que nous traversons et on a parfois l'impression en raison de la légèreté des blogs et de la multitude de pièces chères montrées qu'il s'agit d'un autre monde sans problème qui vit d'amour et de mode :) Tu as raison de remettre simplement les choses à leur place, par contre ce que tu dis sur la santé pour avoir eu des soucis pas moi même mais dans mon entourage proche, c'est le plus important, ça ne te fait pas manger, mais si, ça te fait vivre une bonne santé et donc avoir la force pour tout, aussi pour 2013, comme tu as déjà le travail, je te souhaite une excellente santé et du bonheur et accessoirement toutes les pièces mode que tu désireras. Bises

  3. Dear Marta, this post is particular and I would say "clever" and human because you're explaining a tough reality whereas all the bloggers seem to represent another. But as you say, fashion must stay something magic and a distraction. But fashion is also a powerful industry, giving jobs to many people.
    I wish you all the best for 2013.

    1. That's so true ;) I sometimes say it to the hubby as a joke, but clearly we are helping people while loving fashion, so many people have jobs thanks to the success of the fashion industry ! :D xx
