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.

Calvin Klein Jeans

This Calvin Klein sweatshirt from the CK for My Theresa collection is such a classic piece! It takes me back to that 90s vibe I’m so in love with. I mixed it up with white jeans instead of the expected blue. I feel 90s were all about colours other than the expected ones. Blue jeans weren’t blue, shirts came in other colours, there was a lot of playing around with the garment stereotype. Along with white skinny jeans that you all are familiar with, I wore converse shoes. These are timeless classics, and I think no wardrobe is complete without a pair. They are comfy and light, absolutely perfect for the summer. They make me feel like a girl next-door, laid back, California girl. As to the pictures, I have to say it, even though I don’t usually talk about the photo itself, but this time I’m so proud of it. The balance of whites and greys is broken by that one little lonely orchid on the steps. It looks gorgeous and I’m so proud of these photos. They are really arty, exactly the way I like it! Now I’m in NYC for a few days, so make sure you keep up to date with my journey on instagram.

Ladies and Gents brace yourselves, for this is the best biker jacket I have ever had. AllSaints and I have a long lasting love relationship ( remember my trip to NY last February here ) and I always sit on the edge of my chair when the new collection kicks in. And I have never been let down.

Right now I’m packing for NYC tomorrow and I can’t imagine my American style checklist without this beauty. Especially sine my last trip to the city that never sleeps was made very special by AllSaints. It’s only 5 days but I swear I will miss those Piccadilly Circus  lights every day.  But for now farewell London I shall see you soon, NYC I’m coming !

White sneakers

White sneakers can definitely look chic. For many people white sneakers are a flagship footgear of chavvs and trashy teens. But now they’re fighting their way back into fashion. Look at Saint Laurent for example, they managed to make the double trouble of white and ankle sneakers look cool and trendy. These nikes air force are both ridiculously comfy and stylish. It’s a win win situation. And just now, FootLocker launched their white collection, featuring all white everything kinda shoes. They are brilliant, so many to pick from. I guess though my choice was good choice, what do you guys think?

On another note, playsuits were never really my thing. Well, except when I was about 5 and my mum made me wear a pair. Now, just like the sneakers, they are really in. Especially in the summer, it’s probably the most perfect outfit idea for hot summery days (though we haven’t seen many of those in London). Anyways, I guess sneakers and playsuits will be my summer idea. I would like my coats and baggy jumpers to take a bow, I’ll see you guys in October!

 

 

 

Striped blazer

Stripes are definitely my favourite pattern on clothes of all times ( example here ) . They are classy and simple, but at the same time not boring. I fell in love with this PJ’s inspired, striped blazer when I saw it on the website last week. Wearing night-to-day clothes is the best thing I could imagine ( remember my Poplin shirt! ) . It is comfortable and chic, yet not sloppy which can easily happen when the cut is too casual. The fabric is light and soft, so I could literally spent a whole day in it. This kind of look reminds me of St. Tropez, French Riviera and Cote d’Azure, the beauty mood, light breeze and sun. It’s so in!

The colour code of the look was a result of Dove Colour App which picks the colours that best suit your skin tone. I simply took a pic of my skin and uploaded it to the app, which then picked my shades for me. The results were white, pink and pastel blue, so I decided to go with the advice and the result, I must say, was great. What do you think? I think these colours suit me so well, because they go great with my light complexion and delicate features. Also they make me feel good in what I wear and are pretty neutral so they go well with whatever colour the accessories are. You should all do it, it’s great fun, and you will find out for once if your favourite colours should be your favs after all 🙂
