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.

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.

Spring in Notting Hill with Calvin Klein

Posted on March 10, 2014

Spring in Notting Hill looks beautiful and unreal, like in the puzzle I used to play with my grandma when I was a little girl. Actually, it is the first week of blooming trees, so it will be prettier and prettier during next two weeks, I guess.
Calvin Klein asked me to share my euphoria moment to celebrate their new fragrance Endless Euphoria. I have no doubt it is exactly spring time in Notting Hill with all those blooming trees, sun, blue sky and high temperature outside. I feel so lucky to live here and be able to enjoy it every single day. So if you’re planning to come to London soon, do it within the next two weeks, the weather forecast is promising. Also, I’d love to know what’s your endless euphoria moment ?

Fashion Week with Mercedes-Benz

Posted on March 3, 2014

 

Let’s go back in time a little.This is my look from the last day of fashion week in London. I was filling in as a social media reporter for Mercedes-Benz, the official partner of London Fashion Week. Travelling from one show to another with John, my personal chauffeure made my day super nice and comfortable. In the end of the day I had a pleasure to attend Simon Gao show, the last catwalk show at London Fashion Week and champagne reception with Georgia May Jagger and Tinie Tempah.

Coming back to my outfit, there is nothing more classy than a black skirt and a white shirt. I didn’t like that ‘schoolgirl’ style when I was at school a few years ago, but now I’ve just rediscovered it and I feel great wearing a simple black & white, girly outfit.
