The dark grey jeans and the bright red clutch


Jeans - Rag&Bone in Rock wash (here, here and the same wash with holes here)
Sweater - Zara (2011)
Coat - H&M (not available online but still in store)
Clutch - Alexander Wang
Necklace - Zara
Cahsmere beanie - Saks (hubby's collection)
Boots - Mango

My quest for the perfect dark grey jeans has ended and I'm the happiest gal. I found these Rag&Bone jeans on My Theresa a few months ago but unfortunately they sold out faster than I could click "add to bag". Since then I tried several ones but never with much success. When I saw them again on Stylebop (and on sale), let me tell you that my credit card was out before I could take my next breath. I'm also wearing my brand new Alexander Wang clutch, another sale finding.

Just this once I'm showing my face on an outfit post and I think I need to tell you a few words about it. Since I started the outfit posts back in the Spring I have received countless emails asking me why I don't show my face. Countless times I answered that it is not my intention to have my image displayed out there on the web with no means to control it. It is a personal decision and because this is my personal blog, this is how it will be. But because it's the new year and I since I do think my dear readers deserve to see a more personal side of me at least once a year, here I am.

Wishing you again a very, very Happy New Year 2013 !

xx Marta

  2. Tu es magnifique Marta!
    Superbe pochette en parfait accord avec ton rouge à lèvres! Impeccable.
    T'as-je dis à quel point j'étais à mon tour obsédée par ton statement neckless? ;-)
    Une très belle année 2013 à toi aussi! Merci pour toute cette inspiration que tu nous apportes au quotidien...

  3. Oh it's really nice to see you and you look lovely. Such a nice surprise for the new year. I didn't put my face on originally - too shy - and I thought I would scare the readers away but thankfully people are not phased by it all and it's all in the mind for me personally. I thought it would be better to leave my head off as well because I thought it would be a better way for people to assess the clothes rather than my face but I think once people see you - it seems to break down some barriers and people relate better. But at the end of the day - only do what feels right for you. Happy 2013! I like the beanie topping!

    It's so nice to see your smile! You are lovely. And you have the most perfect hair color ever. I understand your decision, though we love to see you every now and again. Either way, we will keep coming back.
    Thank you for your blog and posts. Happy New Year!

  6. Et comme tu as un teint de poupée, ce serait bête de ne pas le montrer ;)
    Maintenant, je te comprends, sur le fait de ne pas montrer son visage (les amis, le boulot, les déviations du web, ...). Mais une fois ou deux, ça se noie.
