Recently I have realized that I am buying the same pieces of clothing over and over again – do any of you feel the same way? I have at least 10 gray cashmere crew neck sweaters, at least 7 pairs of jeans in exact same cut and wash. Meanwhile, the world is full of opportunities and I decided to step out of my comfort zone and restart experimenting with fashion again. I guess I got tired of it for a little bit and now im ready to go again. We spent a day in downtown LA and I wore those killer black leather and crystal booties from a new hip brand called Teleport Shoes.
Velvet is huuuuge this season:) I am literally fainting over every second pair of velvet booties I see… I wish I could have them all! I bet that’s how you feel, right? I have put together a selection of 10 best velvet accents to invest in this season, from shoes, hats and caps to chokers – for any taste and budget. Enjoy 💕 1. STEVE MADDEN EDIT BOOTS 2.

Double denim outfits have been on and off magazine pages for a while now, but unlike other trends, you don’t see much of them around in ‘real life’. I’m guessing that a good double denim outfit is not so obvious to put together and most people choose to stay away from trouble 😂 I want to share a couple of do’s and dont’s when you are putting together a double denim look. Firstly, it is very important to forget such accessories as hats, heavy belts, cowboy boots – adding any of those elements means increased risk of looking like a caricature from a western movie.
Just back for my Asian trip and too happy to share these stunning photos with you guys! I always adored Asia, for those of you who don’t know I have a degree in Far Eastern studies, I used to speak Japanese (now I have forgotten most of it though haha) and I have traveled around Asia quite a bit. This time I flew to Singapore and Malaysia for work. Wow, it is quite a trip from LA I must say! Before I always traveled to this part of the world from Paris or London and it didn’t feel as far:) It is winter there now which basically consists of devilish heat paired with constant raining and 90% humidity- a dream come true 😂
(Almost) Everything you need to know about Sports Luxe Last couple of years have been all about Sports Luxe – we went through acceptance of sneakers at work and in restaurants, ‘workout’ clothes sneaked into our wardrobes and are now worn anywhere but the gym. It is ‘normal’ to wear a fancy tracksuit with an elegant cashmere coat. I was always a huge fan of Sports Luxe style and adopted it way earlier than it was publicly accepted (or probably before the definition of this style was even written). So, what is Sports Luxe and how to master it?
HOW TO WEAR PATENT LEATHER One of the hottest trends right now aside of everything velvet is everything vinyl, or in other words patent leather (usually vegan). I wanted to add a couple of lines to this outfit post on how to wear patent leather this season, because trust me it is not that obvious:) Here I went all in with this red hot patent mini AND a matching raincoat. There are a couple of rules when wearing provocative patent leather pieces. Rule number one : juxtaposition is necessary. I would recommend wearing this ‘sexy’
Well, now that fashion month is over and I am safely back to LA I finally have time to do a couple of posts with my Paris outfits 🙂 This one is from a beautiful Sunday afternoon that probably was the only ‘day off’ I had in a month and we went brunchin’, flower shopping and wine-drinking. I wore this fab Chanel-esque jumpsuit (very similar here) with a warm cashmere sweater from Basler (similar here) and a great pair of brogues from a French brand called Mellow Yellow (similar here, and here) I also had a wool jacket to go with this outfit that I had to take off as it suddenly got warm and sunny!
Hi guys, I know many of you have been following my travels around Italy on my Instagram but I felt like publishing a little diary on the blog to tell you a little more about Cinque Terre since it was the first time for me and I am in love. Set amid some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on the planet, Cinque Terre is composed of five ingeniously constructed fishing villages which are a Unesco World Heritage site since 1997. The beauty of this place is incredible, I actually felt like I am on a different planet.
I have spent a day in Milan with my family before heading to Cinqueterre (Italian seaside) and we had a fantastic time gelato-eating, aperitivo-drinking, shopping and finishing off with Magic Flute opera at La Scala. Busy day but just one outfit that I wanted to share with you:) My absolute favorite striped 2-piece is from Loup, a NYC-based brand inspired by Parisian film, art and fashion icons such as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Those very 70-s wide high-waisted culottes and belted kimono jacket look equally stylish with heels or Converse –
