Babe, it’s cold outside!

Posted on December 7, 2014

 

Let not kid ourselves. It’s freezing cold outside. Hence the black tights. Actually tights are not as unfashionable as everyone thinks. I used to think like this but I got inspired having seen the last Saint Laurent campaign which features these ‘cheap’ tights and made them into something cool and elegant. Because honestly we all wear black tights during winter time and we shouldnt be embarassed of showing us how we are. Another winter essential is a wrist watch, as mine from Marc by Marc Jacobs ( via The Watch Hut) . It’s handy when it’s really cold and I don’t want to take hands out of my pockets to check the time on my Iphone; I simply peek on my wrist watch. That’s smart, isn’t it?
And ultimate winter basic, a warm fur jacket to take you through the coldest months. Have a nice and warm weekend!

 



 

 

 

New York, Grand Street

Hi guys! How was your Black Friday shopping spree? I myself was closed to maxing out my credit card, and now my conscience is aching. Throw back to my trip to New York, for the Alexander Wang x H&M event. I dashed into Reformation shop no more than an hour after I landed. It’s my ultimate favourite shop and so it happened it was located 10 yards from my hotel. The dress is a bit unusual. It’s longer than something I would normally wear, but nevertheless I feel very ‘me’ in it. Maybe that’s something that one has to grow to eventually, to accept different, and perhaps more  conservative lengths. In any case, the dress is absolutely beautiful, and I love it. A big whooping thanks goes to my sweetest Jim for these photos!
Have a nice week everyone!

Monica Vinader necklace

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.
