There’s a new trend that I’ve been seeing more and more these days: Guitar strap bags. They’ve popped up last fall already when high-end designers such as Valentino, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, or Gucci presented their fall/winter 2016 collections.

Sometimes it happens that I totally fall in love with a piece of clothing I can’t afford. Does that sound familiar to you? I’m sure it does. Ordinary people (like me) just can’t spend CHF 2’000 or more on a new jacket, handbag or whatever your fashion heart desires (and actually, I also do not want to spend that much for a piece of clothing).

I’ve came across Boxmopolitan a few weeks ago when I was readig a review written by Coolbrandz and decided to subscribe for a 3-month period to get their boxes, filled with hot new items from the areas of beauty, wellness, fashion, gourmet, art and design. Boxmopolitan is based in Zurich, Switzerland and aims to bring to you a cosmopolitan taste and introduce you to fancy new brands and products which are carefully selected by the curators of Boxmopolitan. You can choose between different subscriptions for one, three, six or twelve months and prices vary depending on the subscription you choose.

The shoes could be spotted all over Social Media. Read More
