Little Red Dress – in Collaboration with Jara Wine

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.

Spring – Summer trends at London Fashion Weekend

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 ūüėÄ

When the city is calling‚Ķ Photoshoot, part 3.

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‚Ķ It injects the outfit with a sudden twist of the unexpected and I also love that it has a story attached to it‚Ķ After all, the fashion is about telling everyone’s personal story through clothes‚ĶIMG_0350Leather jacket – H&M; jump-suit – H&M; studded clutch – Bershka; necklace – TopShop; shoes – TopShop.¬†IMG_0366¬† Continue reading

My little world of inspiration…

I have decided to share some images of a few things that brighten up my day and make me smile ūüôā Sometimes you just need some retro sunnies or ghetto gold earrings to set you up for the day and give a little confidence boost. That’s just how we, girls, rule! I know we don’t always want to admit this, but we all have a few things that we turn to when we don’t feel that confident, or there is something important we have to do, or we are scared (that job interview, huh?), or we just need to look our best and no mistakes can be made. Or maybe we just spent an hour trying to decide our outfit and it still just doesn’t feel right, but we know that we have that one piece of jewellery that can make things look just right.

Well, anyway, here are a few things that make my fashion fix, inspire me and make me feel ¬†happier ūüôā

My two pairs of Sunnies!!

The top one is from Camden Market and it just goes with everything, and the second one was in a Company’s goodie bag and is totally adorable in it’s purple frames!

Favourite A/W12 trends

Hello and sorry for being away for so long.. But now I am back and ready to review what is happening in the fashion world. To be honest, I am quite happy and excited with the turn the A/W collections took this cold season. There are quite a few new trends as you probably already noticed on the High Street, but I chose my favourite 4 I am most excited about.

OVERSIZE

Those oversized coats are somehow very attractive and can provide a cool edge to casual or office-smart outfit. I have snapped up mine from Topshop a few days ago!

My new coat from Topshop!

Jil Sanders

Celine

Team up with skinny jeans, cropped trousers or wear over the shorts and skirts for a maximum effect.

Gothic & Leather

My personal favourite trend this season! I always was a leather jacket girl and now leather featuring all collections I feel like a child in a sand box. There are leather trousers, leather collars, jackets and dresses that are perfect to create a gothic look which was so popular on the catwalks for A/W12. Also, STUDS! My another biggest obsession which started long ago but now it gets released! Think gothic make-up and dark lips for evening look.

Versace

     

Gyvenchy

Salvatore Ferragamo

Topshop

  

River Island  

 

Military

Create a power look with a military trend with cool khakis, leather and tailoring.

Max Mara, Victoria Beckham, Burberry

Asos

Optical Prints

Summer is over but prints are staying in our wardrobes to lift up our spirits during those dark and rainy winter days. Optical prints are seen on new and hot trouser suits (office wear do not have to be boring), dresses, bags and coats. My catwalk favourite is definitely Prada. And for those who cannot afford to break a bank Next offers very close alternative.

Mary Katrantzou

Kenzo

With these trends dominating the high street, there is no excuse for dull and dark winter, so style up and enjoy!

 

Alternative London Fashion Week

 

Last week londoners and wondering tourists were treated to Alternative Fashion Week which was taking place at Spitalfields Traders Market. There were catwalk shows, designers selling their pieces at the market and lots of stylish people. Fashion students, young designers, models, photographers, fashionistas and everybody interested in fashion were there! And, most importantly, the entry was FREE for everybody!

I came down on the third day and was impressed by the young and promising talent exposed on the catwalk. I can easily see some of them rocking London Fashion Week in a year or two.

The influences of theatre, avant-garde and bright colours were dominating but every designer was unique and had their own brand.

Best images from Day 3:

Mary Ratcliffe & Lucy Tiffney

Love style and colours! I could actually see some of this selling at TopShop’s¬†Jersey¬†section.

 

Chrissie Nicholson – Wild

Sexy, Sexy!

 

MY ULTIMATE FAVOURITE COLLECTION!

 

Jade Davies & Gemma Landing

 

 

Totally LOVE this! ¬†Creative, brave, promising and would find a space in Lady Gaga’s wardrobe.

 

Theatre and colour mix!
