Anonymous said: Hey there. :) I really adore your style so I got a quick question for you.. At the moment I'm looking for a transitional jacket. I currently wear my A.P.C Trench to death and I'm looking for another jacket that is elegant but cool aswell. I Mostly wear black highwaist skinny jeans, Breton shirts and sneakers. Could you recommend something for me? :)
Get a bomber jacket!!!! A.P.C. makes pretty decent ones almost every season. Last year I bought a 70s seersucker jacket from A.P.C. that looks like a bomber jacket - best purchase ever.

Hi. That is so cool. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been to Barcelona now. When are you going? If you’re there during Primavera sound festival or the Sonar festival, you should definitely try to get a day pass or something. Sonar is just magical even if you’re not into electronic music. Otherwise I like to just walk around, go to the beach and food markets, explore the Gràcia area, hang out in Born or El Raval, check out the amazing and controversial architecture, visit Parc Güell, Mies van der Rohe pavillion, MACBA, eat, and have fun. Here are some shopping and food recommendations:
Coquette in Born (A.P.C., Vanessa Bruno, Isabel Marant, etc)
La Boqueria (food market!)
Food and drinks
Bar Cañete in El Raval
Bar Lobo in El Raval
Quimet & Quimet (get there early. LONG LINES!)
Restaurante Rincon de Aragon in El Raval
Boca Grande (for a toilet visit. Man, it’s the craziest toilet ever. Go there for a decadent cocktail as well)
Moritz in El Raval. It’s a brewery (I don’t drink beer) but it’s also a restaurant and a bar. That nineteenth century brewery was renovated by Jean Nouvel, so if you’re into architecture you should check it out. (Nouvel is the architect behind Torre Agbar aka the penis tower)
Bacoa in Born for burgers. I haven’t been to that place yet because it’s always been closed whenever I’m in the area (for instance don’t go on Mondays) but I’ve heard they make legit burgers.
Dos Palillos in El Raval
And if you want to go clubbing, check out resident advisor.
“The one thing I know for sure is that feelings are rarely mutual, so when they are, drop everything, forget belongings and expectations, forget the games, the two days between texts, the hard to gets because this is it, this is what the entire world is after and you’ve stumbled upon it by chance, by accident––so take a deep breath, take a step forward, now run, collide like planets in the system of a dying sun, embrace each other with both arms and let all the rules, the opinions and common sense crash down around you. Because this is love kid, and it’s all yours. Believe me, you’re in for one hell of a ride, after all––this is the one thing I know for sure.”

It's always so fresh and chic. You are an inspiration for me. I've not questions for you, just needed to send to you all my admiration for your work. Sorry for my english, I'm a french girl living in México city. Merci!
