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

Sporty Look For Spring

Sporty Look For Spring, Alyona Prykhodko, 7moreminutes, 7 more minutes Getting Ready Time: 15 minutes

Spring is here! Shocking, right?! It came surprisingly early this year and I am extremely happy about it (not that you could tell from my facial expression in these photos… I look a bit like Dracula, who has been dragged out into the sunlight and told to smile…)! And although I can’t exactly abandon my coats just yet- we are getting closer and closer to that stage. Moreover, spring means that I can stop avoiding going to work through the park (naked trees tend to add to my February blues) and that means comfy

5 Things To Do If You Only Have 1 Day In Milan

travel, Milan, 7moreminutes, 7 more minutes, Alyona Prykhodko

Time: 1 day and 3 hours

Let's face it: as far as Italian cities go, Milan is not the prettiest. You can't compare it to the likes of Rome, Florence or Venice, yet it still has a certain appeal (not least because it's a capital of fashion). So, if you find yourself there (even if it is just for a day) there are quite a few things you can do.

1. Duomo di Milano

Breakfast at ... Chanel's

Breakfast at Chanel's, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, 7 more minutes, 7moreminutes, Alyona Prykhodko

Getting Ready Time: 25 minutes

I don’t think I am the only girl that confesses to her love of old movies. 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' and 'Sabrina' for when I’m feeling a bit blah, 'Pillow Talk' for when I want romance that's not of a cheesy nature and 'How to Marry a Millionaire' or 'Gentlemen Prefer Blonds' for a good laugh. I have seen those movies so many times, that I can recite them from the opening line to the very end. I have seen those movies so many times, that my boyfriend can do the same… I

How To Rock A Slouchy Monday

How To Rock A Slouchy Monday, Alyona Prykhodko, 7 more minutes, fashion, blog, LFW Getting Ready Time: 1 hour, 11 minutes (in my defence it's not easy to find the 'right' type of slouchy sweater!)

For some bizarre reason, the ‘I just want to look comfortable and be relaxed whilst simultaneously looking fabulous, fashionable and just the right level of ‘done’ ’ effect is the hardest one to accomplish (also known as ‘Oh, this old thing?’ look). Give me a black tie situation any day- it’s just so much easier.

I assume that there are plenty of girls who manage to look amazingly pulled together with minimal effort. They simply put ‘this old thing’
