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 😀
I came accross Hema Kaul’s SS14 collection and it stroke me how simple, yet fabulous it was! Hema is the fashion designer from Dubai and has already showcased her work at the Fashion weeks in London and Dubai. Her latest collection is full of femininity and elegance, expressed through pastel and metallic colours, lots of lace details and clean, classic cuts.
The pieces from the collection are easy to incorporate into a life of a modern woman, who appreciates simplicity and wants to show her feminine side.
On incredibly hot and sunny Saturday morning (it feels so weird to write these words when talking about London..) me and Joana decided to try The Breakfast Club.And no, I’m not talking about the movie. I’m talking about the great eatery where I had my best pancakes ever!! ☟☟☟♡♡♡
Yesterday I was so happy I bought that ticket to see American singer Sky Ferreira at London’s Scala because the gig totally exceeded my expectations! I’ve heard a few songs and seen a couple of videos of her but I wasn’t the biggest fan; however, there was something interesting about Sky so I wanted to see her live.
Ferreira came on stage dressed in a leather jacket, leather mini-skirt, leather boots, and, this combination, peered up with a short and messy blonde hair, won some major points from me. Sky was kind of shy and humble on stage and didn’t talk to the audience much, but her performance totally surprised me. First of all, she had this loud and strong voice coming out of her tiny body and her songs sounded way more rock’n’roll than on the recordings. More major points! ‘Foggy’ stage, pink, red and blue lighting, and leather outfit made me feel as I am standing in the New York City bar in 80s and listening to Blondie or some other great pop/punk/rock act. Loved it!! It was clear Sky Ferreira is a new little fish in the pop biz waters because her performance and behaviour on stage were very raw and unpolished, although that was what made the show unique and fresh. You could tell she is not trying to be somebody else and is the real artist inside. Audience felt that too. If I could give her one advice, it would be to stay as she is because that what makes her to stand out.
Today was the last day of the Graduate Fashion Week in London’s Earls Court and I went to see the last show which showcased the best of the best. There were some really great British talent in womenswear, menswear and textile and I am sure we will hear about some of them in the near future.
I loved the diversity of the collections, some of them focusing on couture-like designs, others targeting ready-to-wear market, and others showcasing work that could perfectly fit in on Celine’s catwalk. My three personal favourites were: Nolwenn Faligot (Kingston University), Stephanie Kitchen (Bath Spa University), and Shauni Douglas & Olivia Creber from Edinburgh College of Art.
