Queen Mary’s Gardens

Posted on April 22, 2014

 

Spring inspires me so much. What can I say, green gets me going. The Queen Mary’s Gardens in Regents Park is probably the most beautiful place in London at the moment. I took a day off and left Notting Hill for the blooming trees and intense greens of this lovely park. It makes me feel like I’m back in Poland, by the lake in an amazing forest by the lake. It’s magical. I was wearing a little black dress (like Coco said, you can never go wrong on a little black dress), Balenciaga boots and a furry beast of a bag. I love open back dresses, which I think will totally be ‘in’ this season. The modest front and a sexy back (oh hey there Justin T.) work so well together I might buy a few more of those.

 

Just wanted to give you guys a quick update on my online auctions. As you know I’m listing on Vinted ( CLICK HERE for my auctions) which is an online clothing resale app ( Iphone & Androids). It’s so good. Genuinely 100% stamp of approval. It’s so easy to list auctions. Unlike otherapps of this sort where you have to fill in a billion boxes. Also there’s no listing fee! How good is that ! It’s also a nice place to chat to other users; the Vinted forum is for all fashion lovers. You can chat to people about spring essentials, music and lifestyle. It’s great! You don’t need to use it to list stuff but it’s great help if you’re looking for something specific. Also many other bloggers have their accounts there which is cool as you can browse high fashion as well as well known high street brands. I’d recommend Vinted to everyone who’s up to cleaning their closet and earning a few quid.

Girls Boxing Club

Posted on April 13, 2014

 

Today I’m going sporty! Well, not exactly, check me, put on boxing shorts and I think I’m some kind of Mike Tyson now : ) But anyway, the shorts are incredible! They are from Claudie Pierlot spring collection. Also simultaneously the new Flirt Collection hit the stores, which I’m totally in love with. It’s made out of two fabulous collaborations this season, one with Solex and with Rock n Rose. The Claudie Pierlot and Solex bike is limited edition and comes in Claudie Pierlot’s signature lip print for the season. Imagine cruising in that! Claudie Pierlot and Rock n Rose have also collaborated to produce floral head crowns for the collection. It’s a double want! Florals and lip prints would look so great on streets of Notting Hill, which are beautiful at this time of year. I hope you’re not getting bored of the flowers. If it was up to me, I would freeze the time and let London be blooming forever. I’m also wearing my new Sophie Hulme bag, Pollini heels and a basic back top. It’s my third (wow!) Sophie Hulme bag ( via Young British Designers ) , and I feel a bit like a brand ambassador now. It’s definitely a bag for me, it’s modern, minimalistic and with a little golfer sparkle. Love it!

Wish you guys a nice weekend !

 

 

Madison Avenue

I was browsing my pictures from New York in February and I found this shot taken in Madison Avenue. It was a freezing morning in Upper East Side and we were on the way to the favourite local cafe for breakfast. I don’t have to tell you it was really hard to take an outfit photos when the termomether shows no more than minus 15 Degrees. This is the only shot we took, but I still like it, shows that New York vibe. I was wearing Balenciaga boots, COS coat and a lace skirt.

Other thing I want to tell you. I’ve just started my own ask.fm/alice_zielasko HERE. From now you can ask me a question. I’ll do my best to answer it.

Le Marais

Posted on March 27, 2014

 

Let’s go back to Paris once again,  to Le Marais to be exact, where we spent a lot of time during Paris Fashion Week last month. I was wearing a jacket and bag from Barbara Bui, made of denim printed leather ( check out denim leather s/s14 collection here), old skinny jeans with Pollini by Nicholas Kirkwood Odette heels. It started to rain heavily during our photoshoot, so we had to take pictures in literally  two minutes . So annoying.
During my last day in Paris I went for a walk to 3rd arrondissement. It was my first time there and I found it really beautiful. Reminds me of Cracow and Kazimierz an old jewish district. I promised myself to explore it more when I’m next time in Paris.

Barbara Bui fur coat

I love faux fur coats. They are probably the only thing I will miss in the summer. To be clear, I hate winter but oh them furs, they melt my heart. That on the picture is from Barbara Bui, one of the most perfect ones I’ve ever seen. I took this picture with my sister during PFW on Le Marais. I know I usually put in more pictures but this time one is definitely enough. That fur ! Am I right ?
Also I wanted to let you guys know I’m cleaning out my closet and will be selling my stuff on Vinted (click here for the link to my auctions). If there’s anything you guys ever liked on my blog and want to give it a better home email me on alicja.zielasko@gmail.com. x
