Throwback.

Throwback to that amazing time in Shanghai when the temperature was plus 20 and we had so many options for dressing up and looking nice. Though December has been good to us, it is officially winter and staying warm became more important than looking nice.

So …. back at that time, during one relaxing weekend, I “walked” one of my favourite skirts. It is one of those items that can make the whole outfit. I bought the fabric on taobao (after falling in love with it MADLY) and my friend made a skirt for me according to my sketch. And after the skirt was ready, it rested in my closet for about two years and I almost gave it away at one of the clothing swaps.  Fortunately I didn’t!!! So I finally decided it was a perfect time to give this skirt a try. I completed the outfit with The Beatles T-shirt which is my another taobao find, vintage bag and bracelet, Mango Touch heels and a denim jacket from one of the small shops in Shanghai. I will definitely keep the skirt and play with styling it!

XOXO from Shanghai

In shoes we trust

This world is full of shoes – fabulous and gorgeous shoes; shoes that make us happy and save us; shoes that lighten our days. I often think about shoes as about art masterpieces. I like to look at shoes and even though I can’t afford all the shoes that I want, I can just get inspired and dream…. At the moment when I see a pair of shoes that I like – my heart starts to beat faster and my brain begins to process all the images of the possible outfits that I can complete with this pair of shoes. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I admit, I’m a shoes-a-holic!!! So let’s get inspired by the exquisite street style photos and prepare a pair of gorgeous shoes for tomorrow!

Kimono

No secret that kimonos are my huge love. If I could, I would wear them everywhere! I currently owe 3 kimonos and definitely won’t stop, I want them in all shapes ans colours:) My favourite ensemble to complete the kimono is wide-leg pants, simple top and heels. I wear my each and every kimono as a statement piece so usually don’t overwhelm the looks with a lot of accessories.  In this look: H&M pants, vintage kimono from Shanghai Anxi market, vintage clutch from Bangkok, belt from Mango and Dolce Vita heels. Do you wear kimonos and what is your favorite piece of clothing?

Girl of the month. Sofia Sanchez de Betak

Sofia Sanchez de Betak is a woman of many tealents: she is a fashion consultant, art director, devoted traveller and a designer. I think every person that works in a fashion industry for a long time, decides to put their own ideas and designs into life. Sofia opened her own ecommerce shop  which you can check HERE. More than that Sophia is a street style star and is always featured in all major fashion magazines. Somehow Sofia really reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw, she radites this everlasting fashion statement vibe. She can’t stay unnoticed on the street and I truly consider Sofia to be a fashion role model.  Let’s enjoy and get inspired!

Alexandre Vauthier S 2017 READY-TO-WEAR

French can definitely do it better!!! Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2017 RTW is actually one of the best collections I’ve seen lately.  It’s relaxed, it’s sexy, it’s flattering and it’s so 80’s!!! I already see Bella Hadid, Rita or Beyonce rocking one of those outfits. The collection itself is a great contrast between comfort and sexuality. Sequined gowns, oversized jackets, cropped tops, killer accessories – this collections feels perfect for millennials who are not afraid to experiment and be bold! What’s your favourite ensemble?
