My cat, Rafael, chose my outfit for today…and I think he did a really good job  It turns out he has quite a sense of fashion that I think he developed during the years when he assisted my dressing-up process by climbing into the closet and making himself cozy under my clothes. So today I decided to follow his steps and see how good he really is at picking outfits.  Continue Reading

My dearest,

while I was focusing on yet a different look and fashion post respectively, life was happening. My life, as well as life around me. So I found myself in the position of starting with a dignified letter addressed to a person that I still hold dear and at the same time I hope that this will serve as support to all those out there who are overcoming a recent past. Fashion and life are all too entwined as to be able to always draw the clear line between the two. So, bear with me through the sentimental part, and I hope you enjoy the fashion part of the post. XOXO Continue Reading

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.

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.

Still I avoid conservatism at all costs. Continue Reading

“Do I ever do anything right?” you ask…of course, sometimes…men truly in love usually try so hard that the laws of probability wouldn’t have it any other way. But then, there are days like this one when you get it all right… Continue Reading

I did not want to kiss you goodbye-that was the trouble, I wanted to kiss you goodnight. And there is a lot of difference. Ernest Hemingway Continue Reading

Since my Italy story appealed to you so much, I decided to stick to the topic. Basically, the day following my arrival, Alina took me to the showroom. I must admit I was a bit anxious as I did not know what I was going to see there and I could never in a thousand lives put on an outfit that is not in tune with my soul. Continue Reading

A woman must carry elegance with every state of mind she’s in. The world hates weepers so if you’re ever sad, you be elegant about it. If you’re ever in an autumn state of mind even if it’s spring outside, if you ever gaze into the waters of a river and feel like getting on that boat towards Tranquility Base, remember to take your authenticity with you. I say if you want pure elegance, you wear black. Continue Reading
