I’m so very thankful to every and each one of you! 10000 is a very important threshold for me and I’ve been working very hard to get to this number. We’ve been developing an upgrade of the website to make it more interesting for you guys. It will be launched in the beginning of next month. Also, recently I’ve had quite an interesting collaboration experience with a company operating in furniture and bathroom design. The entire outcome of the collaboration is going to mark the launch of the new version of the website so stay tuned.
The idea of this post was to honor one of the year’s main trends- trench coats. So I chose one of my favorites, completed it with an all-black look underneath, and grabbed my black beret that goes with almost everything. I got in the car with my boyfriend and we were off to the photo shoot (the Instagram boyfriend has become a linguistic coin by now, since we all know who’s behind those fabulous it-girls turning street style into looks we all worship).
Although, the Kira Plastinina brand went bankrupt after only nine years of being on the market, I think they had some really good stuff. Whereas for nine years in a row, this business was never profitable, and losses only varied in volume from year to year, I still think that the problem was about their marketing strategy rather than the clothes they made.
This season, it seems designers are trying to make up for all the bad weather ahead of us or perhaps trying to take our minds away from all the bad crazy that’s been going on around the world. Whatever the raison d’être, we have quite an intensely colored, extravagant, floral, sparkly fashion season upon us. There are so many leading trends of the moment that it seems this season begins with a past years’ graduates’ reunion as it’s “all in” and “none out” for the cold weather fashion trends.
I’m finally home after a two-week holiday by the sea. Mentally I’m still there daydreaming about the careless life in the sun. Things at home are not exactly as I might have hoped for the moment so I’d rather take advantage of the small window of opportunity left to stay a bit behind. So in this post I’ll be doing some more summer outfits before skipping to the multi-layered season of the year.
The only thing that can ruin a good day is people.
One of my favorite brands when it comes to elegance preserving the touch of originality is Ted Lapidus. Their selection surprises me every season as I never go out of their boutique empty-handed. If you’re having one of those very lady-like days, yet you’re not keen on looking as if you’re headed for a Buckingham Palace dinner, then I suggest you check this brand out. I, myself like elegance. As Chanel said, it never goes out of style. Elegance has modesty as one of its main components and modesty always arouses seduction (and that’s what we’re all secretly after, right?). Still I avoid conservatism at all costs.
Lying in the sun, having a beer, breathing in the smell of the sea, and I really start feeling all the self-motivational crap I hear from life coaches every day. Life is beautiful, each day is a miracle and other cliché lines that sound very artificial to say the least when you get up at 7am to the same concrete surroundings, city jams and yes, even the morning coffee in the same place every day can lose its magic.
Let’s talk about that moment when winter is coming but you just don’t want to admit it so you don’t resort to your warmer clothes. Instead you try to cover yourself up as much as possible with your summer ones. That’s what I did today. For a while longer we will all walk around half-naked trying to maintain that summer state of mind while trembling with cold and borrowing jackets from our male friends who seem to be more into accepting the unavoidable.
Blue says “hire me”
Navy blue is considered one of the best colours to wear on a job interview. According to a Career Builder survey of 2,099 hiring managers, interviewees wearing blue were considered team players. The colour symbolizes relaxation, loyalty, confidence and control.
