The Lost Art Of A Dress

The Lost Art Of A Dress

Getting Ready Time: 17 minutes. So freeing not to spend an hour trying to match a top to a skirt, only to realise half way through that there is a stain on the skirt!

Diane Von Frustenberg's quote 'Feel like a woman, wear a dress' is repeated a lot. And every season beautiful dresses are shown in every fashion show of every designer. And yet... Somehow it feels that the dress is dying. Yes, we still see them at every more or less formal occasion (and of course in da club), but if you look around when walking down the

The Railway Romance

Alyona Prykhodko, The Railway Romance, Fashion Blog, 7 more minutes, 7moreminutes, street style

Getting Ready Time: 45 minutes. Most of which I spent trying to put on jeans without ripping them further down...

All that fringe, that denim, that suede! The pioneering spirit poured through the catwalks and spilled onto the streets. I confess: I never really watched westerns when I was younger. Cowgirl and Indians were not my thing.I much preferred the 20s noir crime, where women were extremely glamorous and quite often guilty of doing rather diabolical things. But this year things changed.

Getting Ready Time: 27 minutes... And I was exactly 27 minutes late for meting the girls...

The spring is coming. And so does the new season of Game of Thrones, but that’s a whole other story. So. Spring. A time for the skirts to get a whole lot shorter, legs to develop some suspicious orange streaks (seriously is there anyone out there who actually mastered the art of fake tan?) and girl gossip to get a whole lot more interesting. After all, is their anything more enjoyable than sipping prosecco out in the sun with your craziest sweetest girlfriends,

The Denim Story

Алена Приходько, Alyona Prykhodko, 7 more minutes, 7moreminutes, fashion, fashion blog, blogger, london, denim, the denim story Getting Ready Time: 12 and a half minutes. Nailed it!

All the denim lovers rejoice! The double denim fashion came back last year and is here to stay. The question is, with so many styles and option available, how will you be wearing it? Personally, I tend to buy my denim the way men buy their suits: my closet is a sea of navy, black and grey... Yes, sometimes I derail and go rogue (hens the embarrassing photos of me wearing pale pink jeans and looking like I shoved my legs into a condom. Seriously, what was I thinking?!). But

Suit Up!

Suit Up, Alyona Prykhodko, 7 more minutes, 7moreminutes, fashion, fashion blog, London

Getting Ready Time: 19 minutes. I should have a fraking STAR for this :).

“Suits are full of joy. They’re the sartorial equivalent of a baby’s smile.”
Barney Stinson

Barney might not have had everything figured out, but he had one thing down for sure: nothing can change your attitude (and the attitude of others towards you) as much as a good suit. Do you want to be a smart businesswoman or may be a mafia boss aka me? There are suits for every body shape, every mood and every budget.

It makes you stand out. It gives you
