I have already made myself the biggest Christmas present (a very early one), so all these others ideas are hypothetical. But of course, a girl is never lacking wishes, right? Here are some of mine: coat by the Kooples (from this winter), "Vivienne" bag by Louis Vuitton (I may dream, no?) diamond necklace by Catbird (this is something I have been dreaming of for months – I hope the right man reads this! Wink Wink), notebook by Smythson, and facial spray by Caudalie (this one is a limited edition).

The light is, sadly, not the best for taking photos in November. But I still wanted to give you a little peek into the apartment I moved into last month. It's not finished yet (we're still missing a rug for the living room, several lamps, some pieces for the hallway, a large dining table, ...) but we're slowly getting there. Maybe I can show you more photos soon.

I have a Pinterest board dedicated to tattoos I like. I mainly pin and admire the small simple ones of Kate Moss, Erin Wasson, Daria Werbowy, Freja Beha and the likes – and have been doing so for what feels like ever. The fact that I never tire of seeing these kind of tattoos, even though they're so immensely popular, somewhat astonishes me. Maybe the only reason why I haven't gotten one myself yet is my inability to decide which design I like best.

Something very exciting happened this week. After admiring the Chanel Boy bag for months, I suddenly found out that the model I had had my eyes on was available again! So I decided to go for it. (I was so excited, I even made an "unboxing video" on Instagram). You can see my new Boy above. ... I'm very much in love!

Here's the newest gem from my mother's manufactory: a very warm and cosy cardigan made of different types of luxurious wool (from thick and warm to fluffy to very fluffy). :)
On Saturday I wore it with my Olive T-Shirt, J Brand leather trousers and my new Hermès Médor bracelet. ... Please excuse the bad photo quality – my Olympus Pen camera couldn't handle the bad November light (does anybody else have these problems with that camera?)

Sure I love The Coveteur and Co. – it's always nice to peek into other people's homes and closets. But when I saw the feature about Dyveke Angelo, who's buyer and web store manager at Strom, I went a little bit crazy. My dream bag (Louis Vuitton x Sofia Coppola), Chanel, Iro, a classic Balenciaga biker jacket, ... – nothing but pieces that make my heart race. See it here.

I've already posted it on Instagram: my Caban jacket by Mat de Misaine which I bought in a sailing store last month (similar here and here). I got the men's version because I found it more classic – and I really don't regret it. It's so warm and versatile. I also love the navy blue colour. Last Sunday I wore it with a handmade Angora sweater, a cashmere scarf from Scotland, Topshop jeans, my trusted Acne Donna boots and Mulberry bag.

As much as I love delicate jewellery, I also have a thing for silver studs. (I wear my 1988 stud earrings every day and I still regret not keeping my studded belt from teenage days). My favourite luxury version of studded jewellery, the Hermès "Collier de chien" bracelet, turns my eyes into little hearts every time I see it. Unfortunately, it's very pricy and there are always long waiting lists for it. ... You can't imagine (or maybe you can?) how happy I was when, one day, I saw the "Médor Twilly studs" online. They are designed to be worn with a Twilly silk scarf, but you can also wear them as a bracelet. The silver ones were sold out in Germany but a friend was so nice to get them for me in London. (Thank you!!!). You can see them worn as a bracelet here.
