It was my first time in Portugal. I’ve been looking forward to my trip a lot, but I didn’t expect I will fall in love that much. I arrived on Sunday night and went for a first walk at midnight in Bairro Alto. I saw a lot of oldschool local bars with live music, young people dancing, drinking, smoking and just having fun. The vibe was unique, reminded me of something between Berlin ( my biggest surprise) , Barcelona, Paris and Cracow, but better. I’m not a party girl type, but if I lived in Lisbon, I’d be out every weekend. The next day I did my first walk during the daylight. I was impressed even more. I loved the architecture in Lisbon, it’s beautiful, sweet because of colorful houses but also edgy in the same time – there were a lot of street art , old school cafes, restaurant or laundries ( laundries in different cities always make the vibe cooler in my opinion) . We got lost in little streets of Bairro Alto which were literally empty. I passed by maybe one or two guide trips and the rest were just local people doing their normal everyday duties. That’s what I like the most, watching local people, how they live, what’s their lifestyle etc. I’ll say it again I was in love.
Now I want to tell you about the place I stayed when in Lisbon. Flora Chiado Apartments, located in the old town, walking distance to everywhere. My apartment was huge, with two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room and a huge kitchen, better equipped than mine in London. Every morning we got a delivery of fresh rolls and croissants. I kinda like to prepare breakfast by myself and enjoy it in my own balcony with a view to Lisbon rooftops. That makes me feel more like a local, rather than a tourist. I highly recommend you to stay in Flora Chiado Apartments, even if you’re visiting the city just for a short time, as me.

Golden hour, golden hair and golden dress. There is something magical in Paris when the sun is out. This is my look which I was wearing for Comme Des Garcon show in Paris last afternoon. The dress is from polish brand Risk Made in Warsaw and I added to it skinny sunglasses from George Keburia, vintage bag ( which I got in Brick Lane last year) and my latest purchase, the pearl earrings, which I wear basically everyday since I arrived to Paris.

California inspired me so much! The light there is incredible, pretty much the whole day, not only during the golden hour. My look was simple, just the black crochet dress from Net-A-Porter but accessorries gave an edgy touch to it. You can see first version with heels – more for an evening occassion, and second version with loafers, great to run around during the day. These Christian Louboutin shoes are my most worn shoes recently. I like to wear them with socks to make that cool edgy look and just to feel comfy.
