Giveaway Madness

Christmas is coming and lots of blogs and websites are hosting giveaways. I think I spent a whole day subscribing to hundreds of them! I find them great, and I hope I could host one here sooner or later.

Here are the best ones I could find; there were lots more but they were only for US residents.

- Teen Vogue is giving away tons of stuff.

- Polyvore has three contests going on - What's on your wishlist?, Glam up your holidays with Michael Kors and Luisaviaroma.com / the style guide challenge.

- Glamour Magazine is offering a Mulberry x Target bag and a bag full of goodies.

- German I ♥ ponys is making an amazing advent calendar.

- Fashionising is offering fantastic stuff like a Karl Lagerfeld scarf and a vintage Missoni dress.

- Fabsugar gives you the chance to win a Hèrmes Kelly (I just noticed it's open only to US residents, arrghh)

- Self.com is hosting two giveaways: one and two.

- Net-a-porter offers a $5000 shopping spree.

- The Beauty Counter's giveaway features a nice Leila Lou makeup set. At least it looks so!

- Zagg.com is giving away some hi-tech goods like iPads and iMacs.

La città eterna

Like every year, my family and I go to Rome at the beginning of December for a shopping trip - and every time we go back home without a single shopping bag. I don't know how's that possible.



I only got to buy this book, since my favourite magazines/cds store closed and I didn't know until I got in front of it.

Bag: Marc Jacobs
Shoes: Pollini

Sophie Hulme

I quite like Sophie Hulme's work; it's basic and simple but has something special to it, like the little gold details added to almost every piece.

Anna Jazewitsch

I just discovered a young, talented designer named Anna Jazewitsch. While I try to find more about her, look at her first two collections: Marmographica and Ofimatica.

you know I'm crazy for design and draping.

Alyson Fox

Today I want to introduce to you an artist with some wicked skills, Alyson Fox. She's a great photographer, plus she makes adorable pieces of jewellery. Have a look at them on her Etsy shop.

Lanvin for H&M [2]

Ok, I'm late but I think it's time to write a post about Lanvin x H&M.
I wasn't expecting much.. it's H&M after all, and the clothes are probably made by underpaid Indonesian children.. but I think the whole collection is a bit too trashy. That flower stamp is horrible.

These are the only pieces I like.

Mother of Pearl X Jim Lambie

English label Mother of Pearl is collaborating with artist Jim Lambie for its S/S 10 collection. A very small but wearable one, characterized by clear and geometric lines together with Lambie's graphics.

I really like Maia Norman's work. The previous collections were great, and so is the current one.
Discover more about Mother of Pearl on this website.

The Vamoose

Some work by the amazing Kathryn Blackmore, aka The Vamoose.
I wish I was able to create things like these with my hands. They are so natural and delicate.. be sure you check her shop.
