Do you guys also have favorite searches on eBay? The first thing I type in is always "Chloe clutch" (and I must admit it kind of bothers me that you have to omit the accent aigu in Chloé. If I hadn't it would have saved me a lot of money). However, at the moment I'm trying to break the habit and avoid eBay altogether since the cash level is low. But yesterday I accidently entered the website of temptation and this beautiful clutch came up. I can't say I'm a huge Chloé fan anymore but I love what Phoebe Philo did for the house (it's going to be interesting to see if she can manage to give Céline a revival).. And one of my most treasured wardrobe pieces is a black/gold clutch with green pearl embroidery from the Philo era. Now it has company. At the price of $78 I couldn't resist.

..I want to go there! It was the perfect new year for a while and now it's already turned into a bit of a mess, but I do think I will love how things are going to turn out in the end. I just need to adjust to the thought of everything being different from what I had imagined first. I have quite an impatient nature and I'm not very good with waiting for time to come up with answers to current conundrums. But I know I'll have to. So while time is passing, I'm dreaming about going far, far away. Because for now, I just want some peace and quiet.. Some physical and mental space so that I can pick up myself and get some structure and focus back into my life again. This is a selection of where I'd do that.. in a perfect world.

I had the most fun I've had in a really long while this past weekend. It started with my Fendi brother and his camera flying in from Amsterdam. Then there was fine dining and divine wine. Dancing on ice. A playground by night. Cocktails and Chloé ad campaign rip-offs. Thomas Vinterberg. Hotdogs. Jumping in bed to the sound of Britney Spears. And a lazy Sunday in bed with Oprah, Victoria Beckham, Hard(-o) Gay and tons of food. It simply does not get better than that.
