This Red Chiffon Bow Tie Dress is the second one I’ve styled for Jara Wine. (Boho chick look with another Jara’s dress is available HERE.)
The pop of bright red colour is astonishing and is the main attribute of this dress which is suitable for a day and night outings and is really versatile.
I have teamed the dress with the leather H&M jacket, Primark knee-high socks and TopShop chunky heels. It is quite an unexpected combo but my goal was to demonstrate unconventional way of wearing this kind of dress.
Jara Wine is a women’s wear designer from London, who creates fresh, versatile, and contemporary clothing focusing on colours, textiles and individuality. Her dresses have smart as well as fun feel about them and can be easily worn on many different occasions. Also, all clothes are made in the UK.
It’s spring!!! Well, at least in the calendar… But this miserable London weather cannot stand in a way of SS14 hottest trends that will be appearing in my and probably your wardrobes.
So I and my friend Juste have bought the Silver ticket to London Fashion Weekend and Trend catwalk to see what’s the deal. We were well excited! Ha! It was quite a good show I have to say. Four main trends were presented on the catwalk and here are my best pictures representing all of them. We couldn’t sit in the FROW so forgive me for protruding heads at the bottom of some pictures 😀
So here is yet another part from my outfit posts. I have a little story (which I weirdly remember) about the belt I’m wearing here..
When I was little, my dad bought a car abroad and when he came back home, we found a big bag of clothes in the trunk. My mum threw away almost everything, but we kept the belt because it was so interesting and, at that time, it looked rather funny. I remember thinking it belonged to a circus performers! Many years it was hanging at the back of my parents’ closet and nobody thought it could ever be put in use; however, a couple years ago, when I was visiting my parents, I found the belt and took it with me. While preparing for this photo-shoot, I was looking for some belt for the jump-suit and I accidentally came across this green, feathery creation. I put it on and I loved it! Somehow it worked… It injects the outfit with a sudden twist of the unexpected and I also love that it has a story attached to it… After all, the fashion is about telling everyone’s personal story through clothes…Leather jacket – H&M; jump-suit – H&M; studded clutch – Bershka; necklace – TopShop; shoes – TopShop.

So here it is, the second part of my fashion shoot with Joanna Reich. The pictures are all similar in this post but they are my favourite ones so I crammed them all in for you to judge. This time I am wearing the same bleached denim shorts as in the last post, but I tried to create a different look by wearing the slouchy H&M sweater and studded high-top wedge sneakers. I found these shoes on eBay and I fell in love with the leopard print (which is starting to dominate in my wardrobe) and studs so I had to have them. I have never bought any clothes or footwear online before, so I was a bit terrified they (and other 2 pairs of shoes I bought on the same shopping spree) might not fit me, but they did! All of them! Sometimes a girl has to take a risk in order to get more original design. 🙂
So, finally, the day had come! We have a new and hip shopping place to visit! Yey! (We can never have enough of those, right??) & Other Stories, a new label under the H&M‘s umbrella, opened the doors in Regent Street on Friday.
The first thing that caught my attention was the design of the store. It felt quite sophisticated but creative at the same time. Quite minimalistic interior design, with a dominating white colour and many wooden as well as glass elements. Huge white staircase in the middle of the store creates kind of a classy feeling which makes our shopping even more enjoyable. And you can’t help but notice stage lights attached to the ceiling across the whole store. Anybody said ‘Cool’?
A few hours after official opening, the two-floor shop was buzzing with stylish fashionistas and, I had a feeling, there were some important fashion people wondering around and judging a new shopping gem too.
OK, so what is this new shop about?
It is something between East London meets modern classic meets new season trends. But it’s really about mixing and matching different pieces and creating your own unique look. Modern cuts and unusual garments differentiate & Other Stories from other high-street stores. I was particularly impressed with an edgy jewellery designs and footwear. Mostly In metallic or black colours, the shoes have the most creative designs I have ever seen (pictures below). East London hipsters will have a place to shop in Central London for sure. And let’s not forget a huge amount of make-up and beauty products available. The prices are also affordable for all of us who can’t really stock up on Chanel just yet..
