these are a few of my favourite things


Prada and peonies.

When I brought home the YOOX package delivered to my office yesterday, I dropped by the flower market at Stortorvet to pick up some pink peonies. Peonies are one of my favourite flowers in the world. I like how they start as hard balls and bloom into magnificent voluminous flowers. With the same affinity for peonies, I also like Prada. And after waiting for a few days, my new pair of shoes is now finally unboxed!



This pair of Prada moccasins in cacao is constructed with the softest supple deerskin, leather soles with rubber insets at the heel and stitch detailing. The vamp also features braided leather and discreet stamped Prada signature.






I have been looking for a pair of comfortable brown shoes for when I travel and this is just the perfect find. What’s even better is I got it from YOOX at a great price of €138 during the ongoing Sale² and with an additional 5% off by using the promo code green@yoox.

We love peonies. We love YOOX. We love Prada.

    Not very trendy looking but comfy I’m sure. And that’s good for all season (specially Manila).

    Super yaman mo talaga Mark!

      The rain was a welcome respite today, Renny! It’s been so warm in Oslo these days, the cool air after the rain drowned the heat down a bit. I like. :) Thanks!

        pretty good actually, despite the weird heavy rain spells and the sunny outbursts. to think its white. i am so happy. prada here in greenbelt is having a sale and all shoes are half off. my. i just had to leave right away. i didn’t bother trying…spending too much already! haha…

          sounds great! i was worried bec you had a white pair.
          hmmm, but i’m sure despite the sale, the shoes will cost more than how it would go on sale for in milan. :)

    You have a shopping gift. The Prada shoes are some of the most stylish I have ever seen and I know that you will wear them exceptionally well. I was inspired by your post to buy the blue suede gucci loafers a while ago and love them.

    Hope you are feeling better now.

    What in the world are these called, and where can I find some? I’ve been looking for some men’s loafers for traveling, and this is the second pair of Pradas that are what I’m looking for; the other has the same shape but with tassels. Anyone have a clue? I don’t see anything online.
