Monica Vinader necklace

Posted on November 23, 2014

 

It was probably the last such a beautiful autumn day in Notting Hill when we took these pictures. Today it’s raining and the temperature went down, so all the colourful leaves will disappear very soon. I always say that I don’t like autumn, because it’s getting colder, the days are shorter and winter is just around the corner. Although I can’t deny that autumn is a very photogenic time of a year and makes places that we pass by everyday look different and inspire us.
I’m still in the same mood as it comes to clothes I wear recently. It’s all about black and white. I’ve replaced shorts with skinny jeans and usually add new accessories to make me feel a bit different. Today it’s a gold necklace from Monica Vinader. The best thing about it that you can create your own combination of chains and pendants using a necklace builder. I’m all about tiny jewellery, so I chose three little pendants with a thin gold chain. Nothing makes a woman feel more elegant than a pair of sexy heels and beautiful golden jewellery.
Another thing that needs to be mentioned is this gorgeous bag from Valentino. I absolutely love it just make every single look complete. My friend once said pointing a finger at it that it looks like a parrot from the distance, and truth be told, I think it does look a bit like a tropical bird. A nice summery touch to my rainy day outfit.

Late summer diary

Posted on November 9, 2014

A little mash up of holiday pictures which I took during my summer trip back home to Poland. Now that it’s raining outside and my breath steaming in the cold air, it seems like an appropriate time to share with you two outfits from hot August weather. I’m  wearing a dress from Friend of Mine and Celine platform shoes, the second outfit is Free People shirt & Levi’s shorts and the third outfit is Zara jumper, knit pants and Celine wedges. I’m also wearing very fashionable mosquito bites all round my skin, courtesy of polish summer nights. Summer please come back!

At launch party

Last night I had a chance to attend the New Look Oxford Circus Store re-launch event. It was all very fun, spending time with the girls over a drink, and listening to Jake, Jack and Lola from X-Factor perform live. Before the main event I had the pleasure of getting #partyready with New Look, having my hair and make up done to look like a proper party girl for the night. I was wearing a sequin dress from the new Party collection which is available to buy now in-store and online.

The photos are, clockwise from the left, me and my beautiful Frenchie Adenorah at the hair and make up venue in Covent Garden, my outfit for the night during the party and a backstage shot from a video set for New Look.

Live in Levi’s

Posted on October 28, 2014

 

I was asked by Levi’s to style a pair of jeans from their new AW14 collection as part of the #liveinlevis global campaign which I’m sure you all have heard about. It’s about different people around a world celebrating moments in Levi’s clothes. I got my first pair of Levi’s when I was 13. These were high waisted light blue jeans, just a classic piece. A few years later I found second hand Levi’s denim shorts which have since become a key piece in my wardrobe. I wear them every summer and photograph them for my blog, so you can see a few outfits year by year with me wearing the same Levi’s shorts ( here , here , here or here ). They always bring back good memories.We took these pictures with James in Notting Hill a few days ago. As you know I’m not a big fan of autumn and I’m already counting the days till spring, but Notting Hill got me! I love its autumn colours. I was wearing the black skinny jeans from Levi’s AW14 collection and I just love how perfectly they fit me. Jeans are such an important staple for autumn and thanks to Levi’s every girl no matter what body shape can find the perfect pair for her.

Now it’s your turn, I’d love to know your Levi’s stories too!

New York Diary

Posted on October 26, 2014

 

I want to share with you some Instagram shots I posted during my stay in New York last week. The truth is that only iPhone can capture the moment, because it’s always with us and it takes a few seconds to catch the right moment and take a picture. This time I was staying in Soho in Mondrian Hotel and could stroll my favourite Soho streets the whole day. I discovered a few cool spots, like Black Seed Bagels on Elizabeth Street with the best bagels in town ( nobody loves bagels as much as I do! ), Saturday NYC with a great coffee ( as they say, because I usually take tea) and a lot of surfer boys sitting outside on the benches.

 

I already have my favourite pieces from Alexander Wang x H&M collection. It is for sure this grey cropped sweatshirt and a black leather backpack.

A view from my room was breathtaking, on the first picture you can see my view while taking a shower. Then me and Jim in Soho. And finally a shot of pumpkins, because it’s all about Haloween in NY recently. Then early (sunny) morning in Chelsea where I moved in for the weekend. I feel like home in Chelsea, it’s much more cosy than Soho.

Last two shots. Sunrise in Manhattan. I always come to New York for a few days only, so it’s hard to change my brain into a new time zone. I wake up at 4 am and go to sleep at 8 pm. As a result I can watch these beautiful sunrises in NY which are always amazing. Then me in Soho wearing Alice x Olivia coat when the temperature went 10 Degrees down during one night. it was freezing cold.
