My looks: "The Sting"

It wasn't quite easy to come after the Thai +35 weather into the fall here, in the Netherlands. However I must admit I am quite excited about the approaching fall. Not that I like cold or snow/rain so much, but I'm definitely looking forward for a chance to pull off my own interpretation of the biggest F/W trends. As I've mentioned before one of my all times and definitely this fall favourite is Ralph Lauren. I adore the tweed jackets, wool sweaters and those amazing caps a la Robert Redford circa "The Sting" shown by "maestro" Lauren in his fall collection. So I took the first chilly day as an excuse to present my own vision of the  look. 

Было не просто вернуться из 35 градусной жары Бангкока в осеннюю Голландию. Хотя я должна признаться, что жду с нетерпением наступающей осени. Не то, чтобы я очень любила холод, дождь и снег, однако я предвкушаю момент, когда смогу наконец-то представить мое собственное видение осенних трендов. Как я уже писала, Ральф Лорен является одним из моих самых любимых и наиболее уважаемых дизайнеров. У меня ёкает от сладкого волнения сердце, когда я смотрю на твидовые пиджаки, толстой вязки шерстяные свитера и кепки а ля Роберт Ретфорд времен фильма "Афера", воссозданные "маэстро" Лореном в его осенней коллекции. Использовав первый прохладный день как хороший предлог, я окунулась в мир "Аферы" и Ральфа Лорена. 

I'm wearing: leather jacket Maje, shirt Benetton, pants Marc by Marc Jacobs, shoes Steve Madden, bag vintage Celine, cap my boyfriend's, necklace Dannijo
watch my boyfriend's Omega, bracelet pearl bracelet from Thailand
