“A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for
the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the
world. It was a perfect act.”
  Mahatma Gandhi

I should be thinking about delicate pastel-colored eggs after all we are one night away from Easter, but no!  I’m thinking not only about getting myself a pair of slouchy leather trousers but also a leather skirt.  A full body one for more specification.  I know that somewhere on the surface of the earth Spring is blossoming, but here Fall is around the corner and I’m really looking forward to waring thicker clothes.  

Now, isn’t this outfit worn by Barbara Martelo a perfect attire?  Givenchy “it” boots, leather mini skirt and a peplum top. 
 I’d like one like this.
 Paris Fashion Week style
 Actually no, I rather one like this one.

Where you find these.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

I have that same diamond cube cocktail table in black.
Last night while perusing Pinterest I came across this living
room above.  The entire home was featured in Nuevo Estilo and
since I’m always looking for inspiring interiors from the very popular
magazine I couldn’t believe I never came across its designer and owner Ramon
Garcia Jurado.   More so when the style of the apartment is like
those I like to go through here.  It has pretty much the things I covet,
architectural items to enhance the more simple interior architecture
with a mixture of neoclassical furniture and modern pieces.  Enjoy!

Ramon Garcia Jurado library with klismos char via belle vivir blog

To prove more my love for this flat the library has three pieces I covet, a 1940’s Swedish sideboard, an Empire Swedish console and my all time favorite chair, Klismos.

The sculpture hanging from the ceiling is stunning and that desk is all me.
This living room, I love.
A small bedroom, but full of interest.

I love to imagine perfect scenarios, as you could have noticed.  In this
case I think I would like it more if politicians or activists would make the
cover of Vogue rather than celebrities.  For example one month Al Gore with
‘An Inconvenient Truth’, It’s happening people, climate change
is really happening look or better said “feel around you”. 
I love the first lady, Michelle Obama on the cover of the April issue of Vogue
“Inspiring America”.  And she really is an inspiration to every
woman.  A woman of great values and a very steady sense of family values
who knows first-hand that women can and should be both, advocates for what we
believe in and equally stylish.  And talking about that new hair makeover,
she looks amazing.  Enjoy! I approve this hair makeover.
