Yearly Archives: 2013

2013 in travels!

What a wonderful year it was! I started 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, which was a very spontaneous but definitely one of the best ways to celebrate it. How great it is to celebrate New Year in one of your favourite cities in the world  with temperature more than 20 degrees above zero and with nice people.

I continued my travelling adventures in Cambodia in April. And without any doubt that trip was amazing. Seeing Angkor Wat was an incredible experience. So I highly recommend it!

Then during my August holidays I visited Lviv and Istanbul. Great cities with a very special atmosphere. Feel like I definitely could live in Istanbul!

I had a wonderful summer. And I was definitely very lucky not being in Shanghai in August as it was almost 40 degrees!!!

My next travelling adventure was in November and it was the most anticipated trip as it was my best friend’s wedding. It was held in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen: Thailand, Krabi island. Valentina’s wedding, without any doubts,  was THE dream wedding!! These photos are taken by our amazing friend Taras Kovalchyk who stayed with us during those 7 perfect days and made the photo diary.

Tomorrow is actually the last day of 2013, it’s hard to believe it! Time flies so fast! 2013 was a great year but I hope 2014 will be even better. Did you already think about resolutions?

Love you all and see yall in 2014!!!!!

Style inspiration…Vika Gazinskaya

Vika is a famous Russian designer whose collections are internationally recognisable and loved. Her clothes are known for bold silhouettes and simple lines and yet they are very sophisticated. And I definitely will introduce Gazinskaya’s collections to you a little bit later.  Apart from being a wonderful designer Vika has a very unique style and she is often seen on street style websites. Very often Vika wears items from her own collections and I should say that no one can wear Gazinskaya brand like the designer herself, they seem to be in a perfect harmony. Vika is a great style inspiration to me as her view on fashion is different than the majority of people in this industry and it is a real pleasure to see something fresh on the streets. What do you say?

Happy Holidays! XOXO from Shanghai

Throwback Thursday!

I just understood how I love autumn. And autumns in Shanghai are just perfect. I always try to enjoy every single day of nice weather, especially knowing that winter:( is coming and , oh man, I’m not a winter person. That is why I take every chance to dress up nicely. Found these photos with one of my favourite vintage dresses which I got at “Lolo love vintage”. Every time I put on this dress, I feel so feminine!!! Love love love vintage dresses, especially when you style them correctly.

Love you all. XOXO from Shanghai

Top 10 Red Carpet looks in 2013

This is the end of the year so it is a perfect time to sum up everything what happened and ….it is time for top 10s:) And one of my favourite things to do is to create my own lists.  It kinda makes me feel powerful (in my own fashion world:)). So here is my top 10 Red Carpet looks in 2013.

edbde2d98fe73b546fcbe2398181d61c

10th place goes to Jennifer Lawrence wearing Dior at BAFTA Awards. Jennifer looks very sophisticated with her hair slicked back and minimum accessories. This year Jennifer is making very smart fashion red carpet decisions!

1

Nina Dobrev takes over 9th place wearing amazing black and white Naeem Kahn gown at Elton John’s Oscar party.

2

 

 

8th place and Taylor Swift wearing Elie Saab at CMA Awards. Taylor looks divine but acrually I can’t imagine anyone who could look bad in THAT gown.

3

 

 

Number 7 and … Blake Lively in gorgeous Gucci gown at Met Gala. Blake always looks perfect at Red Carpet events and this time is not an exception.

4

 

6th place belongs to Barbara Palvin in Chanel Haute Couture. Even though a lot of critics wrote about disastrous styling but I think that Barbara looks very lovely.

6

I gave 5th place to Kate Mara in J. Mendel. She wore this gorgeous white gown at Emmys . Kate completed the look with Charlotte Olympia heels, slick hair and smoky eyes.

5

Rooney Mara takes over 4th place wearing Lanvin at 10th Annual Dubai Film Festival.

Top 3d place and……tadaaaam!!!! Cameron Diaz in killer Stella McCartney gown at Met Gala! Totally winning look!

Nicole Kidman looks astonishing in Dior at Cannes premiere of “Great Gatsby”. 45 year-old diva chose a gown from Spring 2014 collection and here we are ….2d place in my list!

9

And first place without any questions belongs to divine Charlize Theron in Dior Haute Couture dress. She is perfection: perfect pixie cut, perfect accessories, perfect dress!
