Fur coat is the only variant of outwear I deem acceptable to wear in the winter. I’ve always hated winter for this reason, big, baggy, shapeless coats everyone wears. Now, fur coats is a different story. They always look extravagant, no matter what shape or colour. They can transform a simple jeans & t-shirt outfit into a runway ensemble, making the wearer look expensive and chic. Another thing is, fur is actually the only outwear that will keep me warm. All the wool in the world couldn’t make the goosebumps on my fragile silhouette disappear, but fur is a miracle, instantly makes me warm and helps survive the cold months.
I grew up in Poland, where in the winter, the temperature would go down to -20 degrees at times, and I remember clearly, how my mum and granny would tell me: “Alice, make sure you get yourself a nice fur coat when you grow up to keep you warm for the rest of your days”. The family wisdom always checks out. Now I’m in my 20s and a proud owner of 4 beautiful fur coats. I wear them in turns, whichever suits the outfit and the weather. Although I wouldn’t say no to a 5th member to join my little furry family. I like to plunder farfetch.com in search of the next fur coat. So far I have my eye on THIS and THIS . Maybe Santa will bring me one, I was a good girl, I promise.
We took these photos on Portobello Road during one of the warm and sunny days. I’m really happy with the London weather at the moment, it almost feels like summer is approaching, not winter. But I don’t mind 15 degrees and sun right now.

You know how much I love denim, from skinny jeans, high-waisted blue jeans to denim jackets. But I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of dungarees for quite a long time. Finally found them, while doing a little shopping in Soho in New York last September. I popped into the Paige store in Soho. It was love at first sight. It took me some time to photograph them for the blog though, 4 months to be exact. Also in Soho, but this time in London, not New York. I was wearing them with a white boho top, Louis Vuitton Twist bag from the Cruise collection and Daniel Wellington watch. You can never go wrong with a classic black leather-strap watch. It’s a timeless piece that will return to season after season. What’s more you can get it ( in any other style and colour ) 15% OFF with a code ‘alicepoint’ at checkout. Happy shopping & Happy weekend! x

Because of the lovely London weather we’re currently experiencing, I had to say a temporary farewell to bare legs and short skirts, for the benefit of long trousers. At the moment I’m all about skinny high waisted jeans. They shape my silhouette well and keep me fairly warm, what else to wish for? This Saint Laurent silk shirt was on my wish list ever since I saw the dress version of it at the Saint Laurent catwalk show last season. I have never seen a lipstick print, and I must say, I fell head over heels for it. It was bound to brighten up any fall outfit, and here’s the result.
Another item ticked off from my wish list is this Saint Laurent Baby Monogram bag (I sense a recurring theme, right?) I was getting excited about in my second last post. I ordered it from farfetch.com and it’s finally here and it’s finally mine. I was actually on the verge of getting this very bag in lipstick print too, but in the end I decided you could never go wrong with black, so I chose the classic timeless version. Hence I allowed myself more playfulness to be directed to the top half of my body and went for the lipstick print shirt.
We took these photos in the very heart of Liverpool Street and showstoppingly interrupted the traffic, amidst all the crazy honking and shouting we managed to take these pictures. See the result yourself!

Oh suit! Long time no see! I have totally forgotten about suits, and what a shame too, because a few years back I owned a whole assortment of them in different fits and colours. This one is from Reiss. It has slim fit, balances on the verge of deep plum and burgundy, and is classy enough that I feel like I’m wearing black although I actually play the funk in this beauty. I wore a simple white t-shirt with it. This is, and has always been my number one rule with suits: break the stiff look with a casual white t-shirt. The most important thing is to make the look elegant, but at the same time modern and even a little bit sexy. I’d love to know your tricks on how to style the suit!
I wish summer would last forever. Those warm sunny days in London are the ones I look forward to all year. I usually spend them in a park reading magazines or catching a tan and some freckles, because let’s be honest, there is no sun here from October until I would say March. The rest of the time I meet with my friends for a little picnic or just for a glass of wine, because there is nothing more proper in London than throwing a picnic party in a park. I was lucky enough to be sent two bottles of the new Gallo Family Vineyard Spritz, one Pineapple & Passionfruit and second Raspberry & Lime, to enjoy with my friends. Personally I loved Raspberry & Lime the most, not only because of it’s colour (yeah, girls like pink) but I really enjoyed its natural juicy raspberry and zesty lime flavours. Although my friends preferred the Pineapple & Passionfruit flavoured bottle. The delicious flavours were the perfect way to enjoy some light and fruity drinks whilst celebrating the weather, catching up and spritzing our summer.
And you know what? We had the best afternoon together for a long time. What’s more, the weather was surprisingly good. I say good, what it means in London: no rain, no wind and sunny. I wish summer would last the whole year and I could spend more afternoons like this. But in the mean time, as autumn creeps by, I might stash a bottle to remind me of those warm days, because to me, Gallo Family Vineyard Spritz is like summer in a bottle.
