Shopping mania

Just recently (or not so recently) I went to London for business and tagged on a day of shopping. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while – go to Bicester Village which promises to be another shoppers haven. The way to do it really is to book the Chauffeur Drive, which is a luxury … Continue reading

London calling

I am a lot in London these days – on business. However, there is always a little bit of time here and there to do some shopping and go into the city. I absolutely adore London, however, Londoners are a bit funny in some ways. The other day when I was at Selfridges for a … Continue reading

Adequate

So while being in London one of these many times, I got the chance to have dinner at this absolutely beautiful place called Great Fosters (http://www.greatfosters.co.uk/). I enjoyed it so much that I have to rave about it here. And if you get a chance, go there and have dinner, or better still, stay overnight … Continue reading

Ready for the new trend

I think I have done it again! I have spotted a trend before it becomes really a main stream bulk trend (if there is such a thing). How else would you explain the absolutely stylish but yet very hard to find must have accessory for this summer? What am I talking about? I am of … Continue reading

A little gem

Recently, my travels continued. This time they brought me to the German town of Stuttgart and the nearby shopping haven of Metzingen. Located there are, among others, a ginormous Hugo Boss outlet, a fabulous Ralph Lauren store (it is three stories, and the whole top floor is dedicated to bath and home ware), a Burberry … Continue reading

Hot for tomorrow

Given that I just traveled to the future and back, I know already what’s gonna be hot tomorrow and what is a must have staple for the seasons to come. I just recently traveled to Australia, and one firm belief that I have is that fashionwise they are always ahead of the game. In this … Continue reading

Is it Winter yet?

After a quick stint to the Arctics I did the opposite not long thereafter – I went to Australia for a bit of sun and warmth – and observed the same as in Lapland – clothes for the wrong season. In the case of Australia, where it is summer now (and temperatures of 30+ degrees … Continue reading

Is it Spring yet?

For a couple of years now I have noticed a fashion world phenomenon. A few years back I went skiing in Colorado in January, and as part of the package I did a day of retail therapy at an outlet village. That particular day it was snowing like crazy and the temperature hovered around -5 … Continue reading

On the road again

Over the past week, I have been traveling again. In a relatively short period of time I went to Frankfurt, London, and Madrid. Naturally I did a lot of fashion spotting and comparing, and London comes out as the winner by far. I have to say that London inspires me a great deal. Anything goes … Continue reading

Style on vacation

Recently I went to Majorca for a week’s vacation. First of all, I am embarrassed to actually admit that I went to Majorca, but it served several purposes. We needed and affordable destination with lots of sun where we could go road biking – and well – Majorca is it. Otherwise, the island did not … Continue reading
