What to wear with pleated skirts

Romantique/ Skirts/ Wardrobe

Try a biker jacket to make the pleated dress / skirt look trendy and fresh as seen on Kate Moss (above) who models this current Mango season!

Wear a fitted cardigan or jumper over the pleated skirt and accessorize with a belt to emphasize the waist. I’m pairing a turquoise springy pleated skirt from Benetton with a pale pink cardigan from Stefanel and pink / red belt from Stefanel.

Cool ladylike chic: Clean crisp shirt and a classic tote handbag. Lemon yellow pleated skirt from Cos.

Mango’s Homage to women

Bags/ Romantique

After a few poor seasons  Mango makes more than up with this year’s AW 2011/2012 season.

Beautiful tailored dresses, rich materials (Tweed, Boucle, silk, leather, lace) and a heavenly handbag collection are guaranteed to satisfy the fussiest of shopper.  

 My highlights:

 The above Bouclé jacket rocks! Combine it with Denim to avoid a dated look.

A feminine cut shift Tweed dress and pink stripes.


Mango’s handbag collection “Perfecto cuir” are handbags made out of finest leather as soft as butter. The cornflower blue classic tote is a dream as well as the ostrich leather clutch.

Leo shoes. Hard to decide whether to go for the Ballet pumps or wedged boots

My all time favourite this season, the  delicate lace dress

Luscious Lace

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

The most feminine trend this year is lace. Seductive, delicate, all woman.I like it best as a dress in a classic shift shape with boat neckline as shown above by Penelope Cruz in a purple L’Wren Scott dress.

Remember to go easy on jewellry when wearing lace as the lace is enough decoration.

R&R on Portobello Road

Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Travel

Portobello Road in Notting Hill is a great, vibrant area of London! This is  the place where we spotted Boris Becker and Kate Moss strolling along, relaxed, unbothered and not noticed by anyone! Everyone minds their own business, it does not matter what you look like or who you are, even if you are Kate Moss! There’s something for everyone here, antiques shops and stands, hip and trendy boutiques, pound shops and great restaurants in the side streets just off Portobello Road. Don’t miss the Hummingbird Bakery for a chocolate brownie cheesecake or one of their legendary Red Velvet muffins!

I’m wearing a skirt from Mango and shoes from TK Maxx. My sister Rebel wears a cardigan from Ralph Lauren bought at TK Maxx.

Portobello Road in Notting Hill ist eine pulsierende Gegend London’s. Here haben wir Boris Becker und Kate Moss entlang schlendern sehen, relaxed und und voellig unerkannt als waere sie eine von uns! Hier steckt niemand die Nase in die Angelegenheiten des anderen, es ist egal was du anziehst oder wer du bist, selbst wenn Dein Name Kate Moss ist! In Notting Hill gibt es etwas fuer jeden: Antik Shops und Staende, Hip, trendy Boutiquen, 1£ shops und leckere Restaurants in den Seitenstrassen. Verpass auf keinen Fall die Hummingbird Bakery und probiere ein Stueck Schokoladenbrownie Kaesekuchen oder den legendaeren Red Velvent Muffin.

Bring Penelope Cruz back!


Mango confirmed Kate Moss as the new face for Mango AW 2011. Booooo. Who wants to look like a worn-out popstar who has her best years behind her? We want Penelope Cruz back. The Spanish beauty; graceful and stunning, who modelled Mango’s clothes from 2008 until last year. Were we not all lured into the shops and tempted to part with our hard earned cash for clothes modelled by Penny, in order to grasp a little bit of her glamour?

Not only did she model the clothes, but she also designed a range for Mango together with her sister Monica. Below I’m wearing a beige dress designed by Penelope. It’s genius in it’s simpleness yet sophistication and ticks all the right boxes of elegance: Knee-length, three quarter sleeves, boat neckline.

Please Mango, bring Penny back!

Mango hat Kate Moss als neues Gesicht ihrer Herbst / Winter Kollektion 2011 bestaetigt. Oh nein! Wer will schon aussehen wie ein abgebrannter Rockstar, der seine besten Zeiten schon hinter sich hat? Wir wollen die wunderschoene Penelope Cruz zurueck, die Mango Kleider modellte von 2008 bis letztes Jahr. Haben wir nicht alle Mango Klamotten gekauft, um ein bisschen von Penny’s Glamour zu erhaschen?

Und sie hat nich nur die Kleider gemodelt, sondern auch eine eigene Kollektion entworfen zusammen mit ihrer Schwester Monica. Ich trage eine beiges Kleid designed von Penelope. Einfach genial, Einfachheit gepaart mit Sophistication, und alle Kaestchen der Elegenz werden hier angekreuzt: Knielaenge, Dreiviertel Arm und U-Boot Ausschnitt.

Mango, please bring Penny back!
