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).
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.
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 😂
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!
