Love | Me and my Phoebe

Psynopsis Celine Dress Ikat Clutch
By now I think it was utter madness to buy a Céline dress – just because during the sales I happened to stumble upon one from the fall 2010 collection (which I adored)… But then, with Phoebe Philo deciding to not do a show this season (is it a big publicity stunt? is she showing us how successful women can find a work-life balance?? is she pushing the label to new iconic levels???*) it feels double-special to own a piece of her designs, and I just love it so. The easy solution is that I've just spent my entire 2012 clothing budget on one dress - and that is that.

*Keeping in mind that Azzedine Alaïa also prefers to do private exclusive showing instead of joining the big fashion hu-ha.

absolutely stunning (and i'm not writing this because i love everything celine in general - there are things in every collection that i truly dislike, very few i have to admit), this dress suits you so damn well, it looks so laid back on you, that shawl collar, the way the "skirt" part seems to sit on your hips... also love the combo with leo shoes and that little bag. fantastic! no, it wasn't madness, this is a forever piece!
p.s. no matter whether it's a publicity stunt or not - the level that this philo-madness has reached is just annoying.

RE philo: i'm not sure. i think she maybe wants to just have every second she can for the baby? it's a big, tough and complex decision.

RE you: you look so lovely and fresh! really lovely look, and the shoes are divine :) xx
