After a thougher than ever Monday, I decided it was time to get pampered and to spoil my significant other with a couple of wardrobe treats from H&M. I took the chance to bring home their new Mag´s issue, and hereby recommend it, specially the East London guide article, plenty of cool suggestions by Susie Lau.

This has been the inspiration for Him, although I channeled into the urban renewed khakis, going for the eponymous colour for both the chinos and the military-esque shirt. The button down shirts give a preppy, well dressed impression – but can be styled to go with any look. Match with a t-shirt or jersey underneath, or add a scarf, for a more casual style.

For me, I got drawn by the accessories frenzy, falling in love with this elegant fake fur collar   and pairing it with a stunning pair of flared jeans for as little as 19.99 GBP! To complete the look, a fine knitted oversized jumper in utilitarian beige. Finnaly,

Finally, I sucumbed to this navy staple…can´t help it but love every single variation on Breton tees!!

Just needed some boost to fight the chilly Friday, so instead of feeling down cos the summer is reaching its end…I went clicking on new shoes!!

Started with the online sale at Kurt Geiger and bingo! Already found my autumn´s best buddy:

After patiently waiting for two weeks since its inauguration, this Lady on a Vespa took a peek at the new Forever21 at Oxford Circus, London.

As I am a huge fan of the American high street, this arrival could not but make me tremble with emotion about the quirkiest, most affordable and fashion conscious of all! So here it comes the report!

Resembling their popular style, the store resembles those from Vegas or SFC although it´s true that the product range you can find here in London is far shorter than their American one, pity!

Don´t miss their blog, full of tips and hot deals!

Three floors of fash bargains, including coquette undies, adorable heeled dessert boots, tons of bags (also backpacks as they´re big news this season!) including this must have aztec printed canvas number (already in a highlighted place in my closet) and this hot batik woven top!
