California inspired me so much! The light there is incredible, pretty much the whole day, not only during the golden hour. My look was simple, just the black crochet dress from Net-A-Porter but accessorries gave an edgy touch to it. You can see first version with heels – more for an evening occassion, and second version with loafers, great to run around during the day. These Christian Louboutin shoes are my most worn shoes recently. I like to wear them with socks to make that cool edgy look and just to feel comfy.

There’s nothing worse than spending a Saturday waiting around at home for a parcel to be delivered, especially when you have no idea what time it will arrive – it’s such a waste of a weekend! CollectPlus is a real life saver for me, as I can have my parcels sent to a location that suits me and they send me a message once they’ve arrived, so I can collect them whenever and wherever I want!
I’m really excited about CollectPlus’ new Social Send service available through their app, which makes it even easier to send and receive parcels. As my work requires me to be sending out multiple parcels a day – given the number of clothes and accessories I sell on my Depop account each week – it’s really time consuming sourcing recipients’ addresses and sorting out all the different labels! Instead, the innovative Social Send service removes the need to know someone’s delivery address – all I need is their phone number or email address to send them their parcel!
CollectPlus does all the hard work for me by automatically sending the recipient a link, which allows them to select a delivery location convenient to them (there are over 6,500 parcel points to choose from in the UK!) I then receive this information and drop the parcel off at my nearest CollectPlus store for sending (they even print the label for you if you don’t have a printer at home).
The recipient will be notified once the parcel has reached its destination and as well as providing me with proof of delivery, I can track the parcel to make sure it’s arrived safely, super handy for all involved! The service costs just £4.99 per parcel, with guaranteed 3 to 5-day delivery, so it won’t impact your bank balance either.
I’m actually selling this vintage bag on Depop and will be using Social Send to make sure it’s safely received! To buy the bag on my Depop shop, click HERE.

The truth is that I love spending a lot of time at home. As a freelancer I work from home, when I’m not traveling of course. It’s the place where I’m the most creative. I wouldn’t be that productive in other places, cafes or common work spaces, which are so popular nowadays. I put a lot of effort to make my home look beautiful and cosy ( as my budget allows me ) and also unique. I don’t want to copy any catalogs from ‚Home’ brands lookbooks, I don’t want it to be perfect and all brand new. I love finding some unique vintage accessories in Portobello Market, which make my apartment look more one of a kind. There are of course some statement pieces like this beautiful gold table from Zuiver. And I have to mention that I love flowers, especially fresh flowers. I buy them every week, depending on my mood or time of a year I choose different ones. This month I go for yellow sunflowers, good for autumn.

I’ve always wanted a leopard print skirt. It’s chic but a bit dangerous at the same time. It’s amazing in its versatility; you can wear it with a black blazer and stilettos and look very elegant but you can also strap on boots and a biker jacket for a more “bad girl” look. No other words a leopard print skirt is indispensable. You can imagine my happiness when I finally found this DVF pencil skirt in Farfetch which ticked all the boxes on my perfect skirt scale. And as aforementioned, I tested its versatility with two separate outfits and (surprise, surprise) the skirt is the star in both, even though they’re different in style. In the first outfit the skirt compliments the Victoria Beckham jumper and slingback shoes. In the second it’s working with the AllSaints coat and the Prada bag. We took these pictures in Paris last week in between shows and truth be told I wore this skirt a bit more often than social convention would dictate.
