Jara asked me to style some of her designs for the shoot so for the first look I chose this Cycle Print Bow Tie Chiffon dress which I used to create a boho chick look. I teamed the dress with a floppy hat (River Island), long grey cardigan (Pull & Bear), Maroccan handbag, green cowboy boots (Deichmann) and white patterned socks (Primark).

Chanel supermarket??

 It was Chanel show time at Paris Fashion Week this morning and Karl Lagerfeld exceeded everybody’s expectations. Again!

If you still remember Chanel couture show (and I’m sure you do) not that long time ago, fashion legend wowed everybody by art installations designed by the man himself and now, for autumn-winter ’14 collections, he transformed Grand Palais into a supermarket full of Chanel branded goods that involved everything from meat and eggs, to brooms and liqueur.

 Models were walking around and ‘shopping’ while showcasing the collection and after the show was over, guests were welcome to take anything they liked from the shelfs!

You can imagine was was happening after such an announcement. Everybody was literally looting the ‘supermarket’ and taking everything with double C sign. After they were done, the shelves were totally empty.

Karl said that Coco would have hated what he did but his goal was to update the image of the brand. This kind of spectacle was a right choice to emphasise our consumerism and prove that everything with Chanel sign can sell.

But let’s not forget the collection which was totally amazing! Classic Chanel tweed, stylish trainers, leather leggings, tailored tracksuits and a lot of colour created a luxe home-wear feel and made quite an astonishing sight for the guests.

Fashion photoshoot. Part 2.

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. 🙂 IMG_0117 IMG_0118IMG_0080

Original hand-made accessories

I love accessories and especially love wearing something nobody else has! Interesting jewellery can boost or even transform your look in seconds. Sometimes, when I have ‘nothing to wear’ day, it is the only saviour. A couple of eye-catching pieces and I’m good to go!

My friend Modesta started making jewellery a few months ago and, after I’d finally seen it, I was amazed how good it was! I love her idea of incorporating little sculls into earrings and bracelets. All of her pieces are different and resemble a good taste.

And thank you, Modesta, for giving me a pair of your amazing white scull earrings and a few others!! xx

Shoreditch Vintage Fair

Saturday afternoon I went to see Schoreditch Vintage Fair with another blogger Joana (Grow in Fashion). Everyone loves a bit of vintage, right? So we went there to look, buy and drink some tea (yes, old, good and very English tea!).

The fair was not huge but it seemed like the best pieces of vintage were under one roof. Old denim, customised Levi’s, printed dresses, 70s clothing, Great Gatsby wardrobe and lots of vintage ‘bling’ brought us back in time and let us feel that old and sometimes forgotten elegance and beauty.

I was obsessed about the jewellery I found! Amazing and unique vintage rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces can really make a difference to anyone’s wardrobe and you can be sure you won’t find a bunch of people wearing the same stuff when walking down the Oxford Street.

My other favourite thing was the amount of sunglasses representing different decades. You could find anything between 70s Hollywood glamour shades to white and black Mickey Mouse sunnies famously worn by Lady Gaga. There was also a Lipstick & Curls service ready to transform any girl into a vintage diva.

The real star of the day! Everybody couldn’t get enough of this little ‘vintage fan’ and he was obviously enjoying the attention!

After we finished browsing the racks of clothes and ‘ooohhhhing’ and ‘ahhhhing’ over the accessories, we went to look for the promised tea served in the vintage china. When we went into the room we saw this…

OMG! Is this Heaven?! We wanted everything and, as you can probably guess, it’s pretty much impossible to resist.. and it didn’t disappoint.. If you are not the biggest fan of vintage, these cakes are the reason alone to come to this fair! Yammm…

New cool shopping gem in London

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..

 

So let’s get shopping!
