…when it’s just the right shade..

Filed under: Beautiful and stylish women I love, Hairstyles, red, style inspirations — alexandradellago @ 9:03 am

I’ve been looking for the “right” shade of red hair and I’ve found it in Portrait- Nicole Fox by Kathryna Hancock..what a stunning editorial! ..Blonde hair is sexy..dark hair is sultry..but nothing is wilder that the right shade of red hair…

…too bad hair salons are closed on a monday!..otherwise I know what I’d be up to!!

Happy Monday!

new loves and obsessions…

I’m loving the Chanel tattoos… so many ways to wear them, and apparently they stay on forever!


madly  in love with these splediferous Balenciaga shoes…I’ve blogged about them in other colours as well…wish I could have ALL of them!

..and these…these just took my breath away!… I am on serious  “operation leather shorts” now until summer…these did it!!…so help me G!

Eeeiish…that’s hot!

I usually do not like hats at ALL… but I’m falling for the floppies!

I haven’t been into MIU MIU for a while..but their SS2010 is undeniably gorgeous..

happy weekend

some black…some white..

It seems like at the moment black and white combos is all I see…and I’m liking it.. I especially love anything white with anything (black) leather!

A white mongolian would be the ultimate indulgence!

Crochet and lace are making a comeback… I like them mixed and matched together for a great textural effect!

I am totally obsessed with these white Raphael Young shoes!! The black ones are also totally madly-lovable… but the white ones…they got me… Sadly no one in Cape Town would get them- so (for now…just for now) I won’t go there! After all…I have to buy what sells 😦

I love this girl from www.thechicmuse.blogspot.com -Denni, she is a freelance stylist from Paris and apart from having an incredible sense of style I also find her utterly beautiful…girl crush…..

Am liking the white jackets popping up everywhere with everything…supervesatileandfresh..

Leather is my passion!!
