the IT accessory

A girl can't have too many pairs of shoes as she can't have too many bags. I might have altered the meaning just a little bit but in real life it is exactly like this. I used to buy shoes and shoes and some more shoes, but since I'm a working girl, I had to give up heels and flats just don't appeal to me so now I only buy what I need. I don't say that I no longer lust for a great pair of shoes but let's get down to earth, I don't have the opportunity to wear them. The alternative: BAGS. Who can't stop me from wearing a beautiful bag when I go to work? It's not like I'm abusing it, like some celebrities do (read this). This morning I surfed and let me tell you the have a great selection of designer bags. Unfortunately even on sale this bags exceed my budget.

Bottega Veneta | Intrecciato leather shoulder bag $1, 250

Alexander Wang | Prisma leather tote $685

Valentino | Rockstud New Dome leather bucket tote $2,145
Reed Krakoff | Boxer leather tote $990
Eternal bags that are worth the investment. I could wear them for years,if only I could afford one (sight...)

focus on: Maria Lucia Hohan

I first heard of Maria Lucia Hohan when she designed the wedding dress for TheCherryBlossomGirl. I didn't knew who she was so I goggled her. And surprise!!! She is a Romanian designer. It's the first Romanian designer that has her collection exposed at L'Eclaireur, the most famous concept store from Paris. Beside, her designs are worn by celebrities like Selena Gomez, Jennifer Hudson, Nicole Scherzinger, Demi Lovato.
Her creations are so fairy-like, layered with delicious silk ruffles in pastel colors. Her S/S 2012 collection is bold but still very feminine. Lots of dramatic gowns, some more color than usual (now she experimented with shades of red, green and black), silk, tulle ruffles, organza  the perfect ingredients for delicious dresses.

 You must love her. Check her entire collection here.
