Monica Vinader necklace

Posted on November 23, 2014

 

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.

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.

Live in Levi’s

Posted on October 28, 2014

 

I was asked by Levi’s to style a pair of jeans from their new AW14 collection as part of the #liveinlevis global campaign which I’m sure you all have heard about. It’s about different people around a world celebrating moments in Levi’s clothes. I got my first pair of Levi’s when I was 13. These were high waisted light blue jeans, just a classic piece. A few years later I found second hand Levi’s denim shorts which have since become a key piece in my wardrobe. I wear them every summer and photograph them for my blog, so you can see a few outfits year by year with me wearing the same Levi’s shorts ( here , here , here or here ). They always bring back good memories.We took these pictures with James in Notting Hill a few days ago. As you know I’m not a big fan of autumn and I’m already counting the days till spring, but Notting Hill got me! I love its autumn colours. I was wearing the black skinny jeans from Levi’s AW14 collection and I just love how perfectly they fit me. Jeans are such an important staple for autumn and thanks to Levi’s every girl no matter what body shape can find the perfect pair for her.

Now it’s your turn, I’d love to know your Levi’s stories too!

When I was looking for the inspiration to create this post I flicked through a few magazines, and nothing. Then I went to a few websites and nothing. So finally it dawned on me when I was watching Coco Before Chanel movie. Hence the idea of a short, loose, tweed wannabe jacket. The shape and colour remind me strongly of those from Chanel campaigns from the 90’s. The fact that the jacket is short is very ‘me’ because it add a modernity and it’s sexy too. The skirt, I must admit is new mainly because of the uncovincional lenght but I find it suits me quite well and I was suprised how comfortable I felt wearing it. Well, actually last time I had something similiar on was in Paris last year ( click here ), but this skirt is much more of a penciled one than the other.
Since we are on this Chanel theme golden accessories are essential. I think these from Akollekt combine modernity with timelessness of gold. They are a new view on jewelllery and frankly absolutely amazing.
The pictures were taken in Portobello yesterday, which is not very Coco and French but nevertheless compliment my style and sense of aesthetics. Have a lovely week! x

London Fashion Week has now officially started! And which better way to kick it off than to get well pampered and looking fabulous. I paired up with Max Factor make up artists to create my own perfect fashion week skin look. During my personalised ‘skin session’ at St Martin’s Lane Hotel, Caroline Barnes, a Max Factor make up artist, showed me how to create a radiant, luminous base using simple products as Max Factor Skin Luminizer. It’s actually extra important during LFW to look good on and off camera so a good skin is crucial. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram (@alicezielasko) for more LFW magic.
