Socks and Sandals. A story of addiction.

At my own peril, I will admit that even though the whole Birkenstocks with socks have been trending for a while, it was never a combo that I have personally worn. Recommended to clients? Sure. Liked and commented on Instagram? Of course. But never actually worn it. Until last week.

It was a cold-ish day at the end of October, and I really wanted to wear my uber comfortable shearling sandals. Yet, with you-know-what still spreading around like wildfire, keeping myself warm has become kind of a priority. Enter socks. Original? No. But it was a first for me.

Best Bags. Ever.

(At Least To Me)

Getting Ready Time: 35 minutes. 

What is your favourite type of bag? I don’t mean what is your favourite brand (let me guess? Is it Bottega? :)). What I mean is, how do you like to carry your things? In a small and elegant top handle? Or a giant hobo shopper that can fit the content of your entire house? Or maybe you love a large clutch aka a Bottega pouch? Maybe a tiny crossbody that only fits a credit card and a lipstick (and sometimes not even that)? Or perhaps you are more of a crossbody type?

The Colours Of SS2020

How To Style Bright Colours In Spring/Summer 2020

Getting Ready Time: about 2 years. 

Right. Long time no see. But here I am, back to my blog, as I have something vital to say:

I am SO done with beige! Honestly, we can call it caramel, oatmeal and sand, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s virtually all beige! And while I do admit to falling off my colour wagon right into ‘the oatmeal’ trend a few years ago, I can no longer handle the neutrality. Don’t get me wrong, I do not dislike neutral colours. They can be pretty straightforward to wear and matched with the right complexion- flattering. But how long can a girl last on oatmeal alone? Where is the excitement? The flavour? The drama?

Perfect Fit

Do You Know What Type of Blazer Is Best For Your Body Shape?

Getting Ready Time: about eternity. It’s not easy to get ready, when all your clothes are at the dry cleaners.

Last week I started to give some serious thought to my fall-winter wardrobe. The summer sale season is officially over, and fall collections are finally in the stores, so now is the perfect time to start shopping for next season. And since these days I try to be a lot more strategic in my shopping[1], it makes sense to think in advance about what I want to purchase for this autumn.

‘Dad’ Sneakers

The Power Of A Trend

Getting Ready Time: 29 minutes. Finding the right t-shirt is harder than you think. Especially if you have to look for it in a pile on the floor.

I must confess, even though I work as a stylist (and therefore should know better), I too occasionally succumb to the latest trend craze. The fact that often the trend in question is utterly ridiculous and fast fleeting makes no difference what so ever.

New York City

Sneak A Peak Of Our Trip To NYC

Getting Ready Time: 6 days. And what can I tell you? You can never have too much time in New York City.

Hello, everyone. The original title of this post was supposed to be The Return of the Prodigal Daughter, but in the end, I have decided to give it a highly original name of New York City. You might have been wondering why I have been absent for so long (or at least I would like to think that you were wondering and that you care), but a lot of things have been happening in my life as of late. And I could not bring myself to commit to everything at once. However, I am back baby! I have a new job, a new business project (I will tell you all about it later), a couple of new outfits, tons of styling advice to share and a few extra kilos (less excited about that one).

Back To Black

Yes, It’s Normcore And It’s Contagious

Getting Ready Time: 8 minutes. That’s the secret behind normcores success. It’s fast.

In the last few years, normcore and sport style slowly took over our lives. It’s everywhere. Every blog, every magazine, every traffic light is filled with women dressed in black, white and grey versions of 90s tracksuits. And Adidas three stripe sneakers of course. But as fun and comfortable as this trend can feel, I have always been a non-believer. Call me crazy, but to this day I admire pulled together stylish women. The type of women who would not be caught dead underdressed. Think Grace Kelly and Elisabeth Taylor getting off the plane in Cannes. Think Marilyn Monroe walking on the streets of New York.

The Other Type Of Suit

Keeping It Comfortable And Work Appropriate

Getting Ready Time: 23 minutes. Easy, breathy.

What do you do if the entire fashion world decided to borrow from the boys? It seems like magazines left us no other choice, but to spend all of our waking hours in a bloody suit. They are everywhere, and everyone has one. But what do you do, if you are just not into the idea of living your whole life in rigid tailoring? And yes, I know, I am contradicting the points made in my previous post, but seriously, who wants to spend 24/7 wearing wool and tweed?!

A Portrait In Grey

How To Wear All Grey Without Looking Boring

Getting Ready Time: 1 hour and 12 minutes. Believe it or not, but it is a lot harder to put together an outfit in neutral tones than it is to throw some colour into the equation and call it a day. Accessories matter a lot more; precision and exciting details are a key to a great look.

It seems that time is just flying by. It’s mid-October, and I already walked past my first Christmas tree this year. I guess 2017 is slowly heading to an end. Which is not exactly bad, as 2017 was clearly off its rails. It was one storm after another: we had to deal with Brexit, Trump was elected president, people keep telling me that they liked Lalaland, hurricane Ophelia made people tweet ‘apocalypses!’ at a sight of blood-red sun and I almost entirely stopped wearing colour for the last three months. I honestly do not know what part of this year was the craziest; I guess Trump and Lalaland would have to share the first place, but my lack of interest in colour would most certainly place solidly at a second.

Jumpsuit In Transit

How To Style A Denim Jumpsuit

Getting Ready Time: about 45 minutes. Sorry guys, I forgot to time myself… but it was roughly about 45 minutes. The biggest challenge was finding the right bag. Surprisingly enough, most of the bags I own just felt too girly next to the jumpsuit.

Continuing the series of my all-weather outfits… 

Can you believe that it’s September already? How can it even be possible?! I know we are talking about London here: a place where you have to check a calendar, not a thermometer, to know that summer has started, but it seems like only yesterday we were excited about it being June! And now all of a sudden- autumn is here.
