Here is my look for the Topshop Unique show this Sunday during London Fashion Week. Houndstooth print for some of you may seem to be conservative. I think the secret is to keep the right balance and make it look modern and fresh. I added to it the most simple t-shirt, which looks stolen from your boyfriend’s wardrobe. This look reflects the 90’s style at its best.
Below you can see my favorite selection of Unique pieces which hit the stores straight after the show. This is nothing other than real, fast fashion. And honestly I think it’s a great idea to be able to buy your favourite look immediately!

This is definitely my “back to work” look. After the entire summer of swimsuits and slip dresses, it’s finally time to put on something more elegant. I’m saying back to work, because July and August are mostly dead in the fashion world. Beginning of September marks the beginning of fashion month and the time fashion world awakes after 2 months of summer. In three days I’ll be in New York, and I’m definitely taking this little Pucci wonder with me, which I managed to haunt down in Monnier Freres. It’s very subtle and elegant, but feminine and a bit girly too. It’s my perfect bag, and I also have about 10 looks planned out with it, so make sure you follow my social media channels for full NYFW coverage. I highly recommend you to browse Monnier Freres and their other autumn propositions, from bags, to shoes and accessories. It’s one of my favorite online stores with designer pieces, where you can find not only universal brands like Philip Lim or Chloe, but also niece brands like Jerome Dreyfuss or Elizabeth and James.
Another big part of my “back to work” outfit is this midi dress. Or all midi dresses for that. I’m absolutely obsessed with this length, which will be a major trend this coming fall, as we’ve seen on many fashion shows in the February/March season of fashion weeks (click here to see the beautiful Saint Laurent collection which based around midi dresses). The only catch is, that a midi dress has to fit perfect to do wonders for the silhouette, it can’t be too short or too long. The perfect cutoff point is halfway between the knee and the ankle. I really like this flower print one for my “back to work” because it mixes the fall midi trend with a summery print making it the perfect transition outfit.

I’m a bit obsessed with the Gucci Cruise collection, from dresses to shoes and bags. It’s not a surprise, I don’t really know anyone who wouldn’t love it. I chose the floral print shirt from Cruise collection, but styled it with my favourite pair of Levi’s. As you know, denim is my second skin and it feels more ‘me’ to combine unique pieces with my favourite clothes rather than wear a total look from a particular brand, even when I love the whole collection and campaign. All this topped with a Moschino bag from Monier Freres, Akollekt pistol bracelet and platform sandals.
I haven’t really been wearing longer dresses that much before. Mini dresses were always my thing. But sometimes you can get bored of your wardrobe and want to try new things, shapes, lengths. That’s how I discovered that the long dresses are my new mini. Particularly this one is just perfect because it’s see-through, which gives the perfect balance between elegant and sexy.
As far as accessories go, I wore my new pearl earrings and ring from Akollekt, Nunc shoes and my new obsession, my first Gucci bag.
