Paris Men’s Fashion Week Diary / C.O.Q. Hotel

Posted on January 26, 2016

Paris it’s always a good idea! I’ve just come back from a few days long trip to Paris for Men’s Fashion Week. I had the pleasure to stay in The COQ Hotel my favourite boutique hotel located very close to Jardin de Luxembourg and Saint Germain. I feel like it’s my home away from home. I’ve stayed there for the second time and enjoyed it even more than the last time. I love small boutique hotels because they’re cosy, very often run by its members, who take care of their guests with special attention and it feels like home. The lobby and the lounge in COQ hotel is arranged in a beautiful living room setting ( I wish I had such an amazing one in my London flat! ) with designer furniture and home accessories, from magazines to photography books. Plus a lot of plants and a glasstop roof which gives the whole area a winter garden look where you can enjoy your time with a glass of French wine and eventually play Scrabble or Monopoly, or more realistically work on your computer or iPhone.

You can see more photos from my trip on my Instagram. And if you’re planning to visit Paris soon, I can highly recommend a stay in COQ hotel.

The red dress

These are the photos we took over the Christmas holidays back in my home country Poland. I’m so in love with the area that I lived in, I love the mountains and the forest, it’s definitely something I really miss when in London. The beautiful scenery you can see on the pictures is a short ride away from my parents house. The dress I was wearing reminds me of the dress from Michael Jackson video clip, which is one of my fav songs recently. I listen to it all the time, sometimes even forgetting where I am, I break into spontaneous dance on the London tube.

Off the shoulder / New York, Crosby Street

Posted on November 22, 2015

Off the shoulder trend has been officially announced as one of the biggest trends for SS16 and I couldn’t be more happy. I love having bare shoulders while still looking elegant. As someone once said “it’s the right amount of sexy meeting sweet” which means nothing other than a perfect balance for me. I never wear midi length skirts, only ultra short, but in this case off the shoulder cropped top made up for it – mini skirt would be too much, while longer style makes the whole look elegant and sexy in a good way. I was wearing this outfit during 3rd day of New York Fashion Week in September. A few days later I found myself featured all over the Internet, from Elle, W Magazine to Tommy Tom website. That was a pleasure.

Madrid diary

Posted on October 12, 2015

You probably are freezing cold right now because autumn has arrived, no doubt about that, so I decided to warm you up by posting my photos from my trip to Madrid in August. I stayed at my favourite Posada Del Dragon boutique hotel in La Latina, in an old part of the city and definitely my favourite area. Just a walking distance from Plaza Mayor with its beautiful little streets around. It was almost 40 degrees Celsius while we took these photos, I was wearing a black lace dress, heeled sandals and crochet backpack from Wool & The Gang. Now I’m switching into ‘winter mode’. No shorts or lace dresses anymore. Fur coat season is on and I’m not too happy about that!

New York, forest green knitted dress

My other look from New York Fashion Week. I can’t get enough of long sleeved mini tube dresses. This one from Sandro has a fresh forest green colour which makes it perfect for the fall weather. I can even imagine wearing it in the winter with black tights. I matched it with red heeled sandals, J.W. Anderson bag and Akollekt jewellery.
