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!

New York Diary

Posted on October 26, 2014

 

I want to share with you some Instagram shots I posted during my stay in New York last week. The truth is that only iPhone can capture the moment, because it’s always with us and it takes a few seconds to catch the right moment and take a picture. This time I was staying in Soho in Mondrian Hotel and could stroll my favourite Soho streets the whole day. I discovered a few cool spots, like Black Seed Bagels on Elizabeth Street with the best bagels in town ( nobody loves bagels as much as I do! ), Saturday NYC with a great coffee ( as they say, because I usually take tea) and a lot of surfer boys sitting outside on the benches.

 

I already have my favourite pieces from Alexander Wang x H&M collection. It is for sure this grey cropped sweatshirt and a black leather backpack.

A view from my room was breathtaking, on the first picture you can see my view while taking a shower. Then me and Jim in Soho. And finally a shot of pumpkins, because it’s all about Haloween in NY recently. Then early (sunny) morning in Chelsea where I moved in for the weekend. I feel like home in Chelsea, it’s much more cosy than Soho.

Last two shots. Sunrise in Manhattan. I always come to New York for a few days only, so it’s hard to change my brain into a new time zone. I wake up at 4 am and go to sleep at 8 pm. As a result I can watch these beautiful sunrises in NY which are always amazing. Then me in Soho wearing Alice x Olivia coat when the temperature went 10 Degrees down during one night. it was freezing cold.

 

Alexander Wang x H&M launch event in New York

Posted on October 21, 2014

 

When I heard the news about Alexander Wang x H&M collaboration I was extremely excited. Alexander Wang has been one of my favourite designers for years now. It was a huge pleasure to be invited to New York for the lanch party and the whole event including a wonderfull conference during which he answered many questions and gave an insight to his work. That evening the collection had its first presentation featuring parkour performance and Missy Eliot’s gig. In the end Alexander came out and run a loop track which was really sweet and underlined the sportiness of the collection.

For the evening I was wearing a sequined dress from Isabel Marant, Valentino bag and H&M x Isabel Marant boots.

Oh, and one other thing. I was accomodated in Mondrian Soho, one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever had a chance to stay in. New York, it’s always a pleasure! Thank you H&M for having me!

A day in Notting Hill

Posted on October 12, 2014

 

Today I wanted to share with you the fruit of my recent collaboration with TKMaxx- a video featuring my favourite AW14 boots styles. In preparation for the video I spent an hour in TKMaxx here, in Covent Garden, and had literally hundreds of incredible styles to pick from, which made my job hard, but nevertheless so fun. The three styles I picked reflect my autumn wishlist and I definitely need more boots in my wardrobe.
The video was shot a while ago, during the last of sunny days in Notting Hill. It was such a great and odd experience working with a band of 10 people filming my every move! The movie focuses on Notting Hill, a place where I live, hang out and work. I wanted to show my readers my favourite spots and the beauty of my hood. It’s also my first ever video in which I attempted talking, so cut me some slack. Hope you enjoy it!
