Flowers!

One of my favourite routines lately is to wake up early (!!!) on Sunday morning, have a light breakfast, drink an enormous cup of coffee and buy flowers! I have no idea why didn’t I notice earlier how flowers have a power to enlighten my apartment and they definitely brighten my day! Bringing a nature element to my life and apartment became an essential part of my living in Shanghai. And there are so many choices and varieties of flowers and ideas how to style them. I like to choose and unusual containers to place flowers: mugs, glasses, jars, bowls….just use your imagination and enjoy!!!!

Perfect way to rest?

I’m sure all of us have our favourite ways to relax from everyday routine. I would definitely prefer beach getaways, but usually everything ends up shopping, chilling with friends or “TV weekend” at home. How do you relax?

I want….

It is time for my “I want …” post. I feel that while writing these posts I try to find myself… they help me to make one step closer to my dreams… These post are not just about fashion, they are about everything I dream about, everything I want…

I want…
since my childhood I’ve always been dreaming about France. What can be better that the smell of fresh baguette or croissant in the morning, walking narrow Parisian streets, exploring new vintage stores and flee markets. I really hope I will go to France one day. Dreams do come true, right?

I want…
ice cream….It is boiling hot in Shanghai and lately it seems to me I’m not eating anything except of ice cream!!!

I want…
nature!!! What can be more simple? But, ooo God, I miss it so much, especially here in Shanghai. Try to go to parks as often as possible.

I want….
a bright midi skirt. Honestly I’m not a big fan of mini skirts. They just don’t fit me the way I want. But midi skirts…mmm…pencil skirts, A-line skirts, full skirts…paired with feminine wedges or heels. What can be better?

I want…
to start wearing straw hats. To me they are a perfect accessory to almost every summer outfit!

I want…
peonies. They are perfect flowers!! Nothing more to say!

I want…
to add more white colour to my interiors. It is so pure and bright.

I want…
(still didn’t find my perfect pants)

I want…
a straw bag for this summer.

Instagram updates

I fell in love with Instagram the first moment I started to use it. I have so many amazing moments to capture. You rarely can see me on the pictures, I prefer to post things and places that inspire me.

My beloved Shanghai!!!! I literally take pictures of it every single day: while going to work or going home, finding hidden places and enjoying favourite spots.

Lunches, brunches, coffee time…sometimes I feel so silly taking pictures of that amazing food that I eat.

Reading and even more reading! My two favourite books lately: Madame Chic by Jennifer L. Scott and “Fashion management: Concept to customer”. Highly recommended!

1 year ago and 2 years ago…

Window shopping: gorgeous Miu Miu bags and throw-back: necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition in Shanghai last year.

Just smiling!!!

One of the most favourite items in my closet: Asos dress and “sky” umbrella bought in Shanghai.

 

Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013-2014 (Preview)

   One of my favourite designers, Ulyana Sergeenko presented her latest Couture collection in Paris. Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Haute Couture show was magnificent! Ulyana didn’t change the feminine-classy-vintage vibe and I can’t be any happier. All Ulyana’s collection is like a time machine, like a throw-back to the past.  Here is the preview of collection. More photos are coming soon. I promise!
