Babe, it’s cold outside!

Posted on December 7, 2014

 

Let not kid ourselves. It’s freezing cold outside. Hence the black tights. Actually tights are not as unfashionable as everyone thinks. I used to think like this but I got inspired having seen the last Saint Laurent campaign which features these ‘cheap’ tights and made them into something cool and elegant. Because honestly we all wear black tights during winter time and we shouldnt be embarassed of showing us how we are. Another winter essential is a wrist watch, as mine from Marc by Marc Jacobs ( via The Watch Hut) . It’s handy when it’s really cold and I don’t want to take hands out of my pockets to check the time on my Iphone; I simply peek on my wrist watch. That’s smart, isn’t it?
And ultimate winter basic, a warm fur jacket to take you through the coldest months. Have a nice and warm weekend!

 



 

 

 

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.

The photos are, clockwise from the left, me and my beautiful Frenchie Adenorah at the hair and make up venue in Covent Garden, my outfit for the night during the party and a backstage shot from a video set for New Look.

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!

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
