Embroidery is certainly a very hot trend, now more than ever, but I tend to see more of it on store hangers than on people. Why is that? Well, because embroidery is not that easy to master and often times it just doesn’t look good once on. There are many common fears surrounding the embroidery: fear of having an overly ‘busy’ outfit, fear of looking too try-hard, fear of appearing too girly/romantic, or completely ‘baba-cool’. So, how to balance and which mistakes to avoid? I would say that one embroidered item is way easier to wear compared to an entire embroidered outfit (e.g top+bottom or a dress).
After the fashion month in Paris it felt sooooo good to be back in LA with its warm days and beautiful sunshine. March spent in LA was all about metallics that have slowly but surely conquered my wardrobe. I am very much into silver but even more into rose gold which is obvious from this insta diary:) It is also pretty obvious that I am hitting the new Ladurée a little too often. Also, I have new favorites in my color palette – for some reason I am only now discovering lilac and apricot…
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?

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 😂
