Creamy cashmere staples from the White Company
Airbag for everyday cycling safety thanks to Chanel (Cocoon collection) of course.
Barely there – Chain ring by Iwona Ludyga, Green sapphire necklace by Laura Lee and mummy’s old gold rings
Second skin T by Alexander Wang (grey | black)
Superhero cape for any woman – black stilettos by Christian Louboutin (Corneille Kid)
The leather jacket (Shearling for colder seasons – Muubaa Aurora)

I had it all figured out – I built a machine (The Winchester) that would guarantee survival for myself and Emma Stone (and Jennifer Lawrence, if she’s up for that kind of relationship) when the first fiery meteor of the Apocalypse hits the world. We’d sit in it, have a pint and wait for it all to blow over, then we’d step out onto a charred earth and repopulate and generally live happily ever after. And these are a few things I’d have packed – timeless pieces so I don’t unnecessarily exchange food for the latest alien trend, but I understand old habits will die hard (i.e see me shell out kebabs for a pair of Charlotte Olympia kitty flats this season).

It takes a while to understand which pieces are Forever classics for you, and I believe we all have different sets, but for me it was seeing what I took into the shower every day, and the kind of clothes I wanted to slip into the minute I dried off. Not to forget of course, little accents like red lips or a pair of Louboutins (my first!) that help take on the day. I’d also add the Isabel Marant sneakers as a Forever classic, but I’ll save that for if & when I’m doing ‘What’s in the diaper bag’ post, as I’m convinced it’ll be the only thing I’ll wear from ‘fashion’ once a junior is born in the far future.

  7. All back evvvvvvverythang. Nice post indeed.

  8. What an excellent post. I believe as young people it’s so easy to go overboard in spending, or get wrapped up in just owning a lot of things. But really it’s the basics- the wardrobe essentials that last you for years that we always end up coming back to.. Kudos!

    Such romantic images as usual!

  18. Junior? Can I already shout “gratulacje!”? Merry Christmas Shini!

  19. Love the trading of alien trendy clothes, I’d have a feeling I might trade it some of mine for theirs just to wanna “fit it” since who knows, maybe I’d find peace with them ;P How is it that everything you shoot ends up looking so heavenly? I wanna live through your lens. Classic pieces = the best.

  31. Love your cool pictures and fabulous shoes!

  32. Hello,
    it’s been a long time since last time i visited your site. You changed a lot, now you have a long hair which is I envy about it because it seems your hair grow pretty fast. I really in love the fist pictures, hmm I love all pictures in this post but the first one is my favorite.

    I agreed with you for those classic and timeless pieces that worth to keep and love the biker jacket on the last picture, you really know how to look chic and effortless which that’s why me and the others readers love this site.

    I’m sorry because I read pretty fast but do you are expecting a baby right now? Are you pregnant? If it’s true than i would say congratulations. I believe you will be a great Mom, a fashionable one! And I have a visual that maybe one day you will make a street look post together with your child in a chic outfit.
    *sorry for a long comment

  33. THank you for such a long comment! Haha I’ve been getting this a lot for this post – I should’ve known not to say anything about babies or pregnancy in case ;) Just to clarify: I’m not expecting! Possibly preggers with food after all this Christmastime eating but no real junior coming ;)

  34. stunningly gorgeous classic looks.

    This is the only Chanel bag that I truly madly deeply love, and I’ve adored this since the moment it appeared on your blog. Does it have a specific code or name so I can track it down?

  36. I can’t believe how versatile it is too – when I first got it, I was actually quite dubious to how often I’ll use it because it just looked like a big pillow if anything, but I’ve been using it ALL THE TIME. I’m afraid though, all I know about the bag is that it’s from the Cocoon Collection (Remember the one Lilly Allen was a face of) – I wonder if they still carry it…
