Louis Vuitton: Perfume

All the big famous brands (Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani,...) have it: The Perfume

As we know Marc Jaocobs likes to enter new territory so it is no surprise that the French luxury brand is launching its 1st perfume in 2012!
Jaques Cavallier-Belletrud from Grasse ('L’Eau d’Issey', Jean Paul Gaultiers 'Classique', 'Cinema' von Yves Saint Laurent und Diors 'Addict'), will create the LV perfume.

Curious how the smell of the perfume will be:
A smell of luxurious travelling luggage made of fine leather, exotic spices from all over the world, a hint of nostalgy mixed with a modern twist that surprises ?

Inspiration of the Day: "It is hard to fail but it is worse never to have tried to succeed"

Spotted at the Museum of Natural History, NYC

New York City Impressions

March - July 2011: I finally made my dream come true to experience how it would be to live in this famous city. Totally unexpected one of my close friends Elise had the same plans. So we both applied for an internship at the famous PR company Karla Otto and got both accepted.

The beginning of the Time of our Lives ;-)

Here are some pictures I took from this amazing city. And even though I have left New York a while ago I still keep thinking of the City and would go back immediately if I had the chance!

As you might imagine I took A LOT of pictures during these months. Slowly by slowly I will post the pics of my adventure on SpottedwithStyle.

!Just be patient!

Shooting Part 1

Ever since I watched Sex and the City I fell in love with the Ballerina skirt of Carrie Bradshaw and was looking everywhere for something similar!

When I first saw this Ballerina skirt at H&M there was no way I could not buy it. However I thought that the skirt was a little too ballerina like, which was why I cut the inner layer shorter to give it a little edge.

Latest Purchase: Paisley Dress

Yesterday was the last day of a 20% discount offer at Since I am kind of on a budget (being a student is not necessarily glamorous) I was going back and forth if I should or shouldn't buy these 2 gorgeous silk dresses.

Finally I decided to get them. 100% Silk for an already reduced price MINUS an additional 20% and free shipping?! What a bargain, right ?
I just couldn't resist :)

89,90 --> 44,99 - 20%= 35,90€

89,99 --> 34,99 - 20% = 27,90 €

With the second dress I am planning to modify it by shortening the inner layer of the Midi-length in such a way that the part till my knees will be transparent.
Too complicated to explain, here is the source of my inspiration:

Working hard but Enjoying life :)

As mentioned before I have started my Masters in Luxury Fashion Management. Being a student means much more time to relax, sleep, simply enjoy life. However, the workload has become pretty heavy the last weeks and it is so hard to find time to post on my blog.

2 weeks ago I did a little photoshoot with my friend, especially for Spotted With Style. The funny story was that I forgot my shoes
on the street that day (Wedges from Nine West, bought in the States and are the most comfortable shoes I have). At night I suddenly realized that my Nine West shoes were not in my bag. Totally panicked I called my friend to look for my shoes on the street.

THANK GOD they were still waiting for me at the same spot I left them behind :)

Versace for H&M - I like it!

On the 17th of November the Versace for H&M collection will be finally available in the stores worldwide!
When I first heart about the new collaboration partner for H&M I wasn't very excited since I am not a huge fun of the Versace style.

"Too colorful, too much bling bling"

However, I must say some pieces need to be in my closet :)
Especially the pink dress with golden studs!

Here is the lookbook
