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!
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!
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.

This shot was taken outside Tibi show during New York Fashion Week. It was hot but very windy. I was wearing an off shoulder top with a skirt and my main ‘fashion week bag’ from J.W. Anderson via Avenue 32. If you saw me around with the same bag every single day, I’m not ashamed. I literally love it and couldn’t go out without it.
This is my first look from NYFW. Just a simple white J W Anderson shirt and blue jeans. Although the material and the cut of this shirt make it the least simple shirt in the world. Such minimalistic look needs to be topped off with the finest jewellery. So I was wearing Akollekt Roses and Inbetween rings and necklace ( not visible in this outfit, but will show you more details in the next post). I love the combination of gold on white and blue. So timeless. We took these pictures in Bowery, Lower East Side. Don’t forgt to follow my fashion week updates on Instagram @alicezielasko and snapchat @aliceziel. Have a nice weekend!
