Santa Claus Brought Me Tons Of Bras

Being a flat chested girl could be really painful if you live in a country where bras don't go by cup and bust measurements but, most of the time, there are only a few standard sizes - and the smallest is often too big - that leave you with lot of extra empty space.

Considering I don't like to fill my bra with Kleenex, I finally decided to try a different path and once again a bit of online shopping has saved me. Just one week -the time of my latest order from ASOS to be delivered - and now my lingerie drawer is full of bras that finally fit me. Literally, an invasion of A cups!





I regularly look at new arrivals on Asos and I must say I also place regular orders, but I don't know why I've never considered the lingerie section (and the outlet lingerie section) till last week.
By the way, I finally did it and I immediately turned into a lingerie addicted. Seriously: I want to buy almost everything and looking for a single bra I ended buying...six. And knickers too! A sort of "auto Christmas present". Well deserved and much appreciated.





The pics show just a selection of some of my favorites + something I bought... :-)

Fashionable Puppets

I saw these awhile ago on Style Bubble and immediately loved them. I'm certainly not a little girl anymore, but I can still love puppets. Stylish puppets.


All the fashion crews, from Paris, London, Milano and New York. You can buy them here.



I must add them to the gift guide!

Vintage L.A.

In a few words, I bought an amazing book and I'm totally sure this will be a perfect Christmas present for any vintage and travels addicted.


I always looked at travel guides as wishlists more than practical books. A way to escape from reality in a certain way: in a cold winter afternoon when you lay on your coach with flu and sore throat, you can always imagine to travel to your favorite spots feeling great with a warm sun kissing your skin!
So it doesn't matter if I'm a million green counties from sunny California and I'm not currently planning any trip to L.A. (any trip anywhere indeed...), I'm totally hooked on this book!

Vintage L.A. is an amazing guide to every amazing vintage spots - boutiques, decor, landmarks, markets & more - in this amazing city. A guided tour of a glittery town, home of oh so many marvellous stories.

Featuring gorgeous, gorgeous pictures and interviews to cool Angelenos (Mark Ryden too!!), this guide will take you from Westside to Hollywood, from the Valley to Beverly Hills to L.A. sadly lost vintage landmarks. It's a book full of colors and fascinating old school stories. Definitely my thing!


The author, the L.A. native and lifelong resident and former Elle Girl columnist Jennifer Brandt Taylor - a super cool and stylish redhaired girl, by the way - has relocated to New York City where she's working on her next book, Vintage New York. And I can't wait for this one too!!
