New York, you’re the coldest place on Earth. I expect winter in February, but – 20 C was a little too much. Luckily I prepared myself well, this gorgeous bottle green faux fur coat from Avenue32 kept me warm during the coldest day in NY. Maybe I shouldn’t complain, so many random people asked me where is it from and ask if they can touch it. Well, I didn’t mind…
The rest of my outfit is not complicated, just blue jeans, black boots and the new Louis Vuitton Twist bag. We took these photos in Lower East Side and Soho. The shop with magazines in my background is located on Kenmare Street, they have a fantastic selection of international magazines and newspapers that one would have trouble finding. We spent there hours after shooting browsing magazines.

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.

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.

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.
