Is matching items to get the perfect outfit so different from matching men and women to get the perfect couple? Aren’t similar principles applied to both? We know that an all black is always a success, that a an evening dress calls for elegant heels, a dull outfit would be remembered if accessorized properly, leather goes perfectly with organic textile and it goes on and on.

I always felt more comfortable being a little underdressed than a little overdressed. Overdressing is like saying “I love you” on a second date. It turns something otherwise wonderful into the perfect tool for scarying everyone away. People will watch as you hit ground ridiculous in an ill-conceived chase for attention/affection. Being underdressed on the other hand says “I actually had something else in my plans for tonight, but I was too flattered at how much you all wanted to see me, as not to drop by”.

The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom. And the latter is by far the worst. I’ve taken quite a few blows in my life, and I found out as I rolled, that I can withstand them with at least a little bit of grace. The prospect of being bored on the other hand has always been the scariest for me. Looking back, I know now that a lot of the stupid shit I did along the way, was to avoid getting bored. Each time I get bored, I feel this urging desire for desires. Continue Reading

A bit of philosophy on life, love and sex this time folks. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

I’ve always been into leaving my home in whatever I was wearing. Actually my disregard for public opinion reached such heights that I went to university exams and restaurants in pajamas. I’ve always been naturally free of the gravity of what people think, I made no effort to be like this. Being in favor of breaking the rules, I was really excited to see designers coming up with these gorgeous pajama sets designed for outwear. I was immediately attracted to the trend. Now, on how I think it’s best to wear it:

What is true of fashion generally and of sunglasses specifically is that whatever looks best on you is what you should wear this season. If something is trending right now but it doesn’t feel or look right on you, forget about it. However, there are certain styles of shades that the designers have opted for on the S 2018 runways. Now, you will notice that some of these trends are not meant to protect your eyes against sunlight and will only serve for aesthetic purposes. Still, some researchers say that sunlight is actually beneficial to the eyes and it’s only a matter of whether the sun rays disturb your comfort or not. So, with all of that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s trending right now in the shades department: Continue Reading

Ruins are the best ground for building a masterpiece. If that’s true, then the place I’m in has got a lot of fucking potential. And today, I’m not looking for beautiful places to take pics, today I’m simply walking the streets and stopping at a building that resembles all others. I always admired the color black. It has sobriety, personality, it’s got the necessary and the sufficient, in a word-everything. When in doubt, you have to know that all-black guarantees impeccable style. And let’s hope that Coco Chanel was right, and if dressed impeccably, they won’t remember the clothes of a woman or the ruins surrounding her, just the woman. Continue Reading

So here I am, somewhere deep in the country, wearing this awesome, linen, knitted Ivana Helsinki dress, all covered in gold threads. Its heavy fabric makes it fall beautifully just a bit below the knee-my favorite skirt length. Tight enough to show I’m a woman, but loose enough to show I’m a lady…and so the story begins…a friend of mine told me the other day when I complemented her cool look “well, I’m going out with you tonight and I know you’ll get the style I’m wearing so I could wear what I want, but I don’t dress this way when I’m with other people because they won’t get me”. I was saddened to hear that. If there’s something I want you to take with you from my blog, is that you should be as wild as your heart wants you to be, because those are the only moments when you’re truly alive.

It’s so wonderfully easy to do a photoshoot on a snowy day. Any look goes. As a kid, I remember, I used to love snow, all of us did. It was like snow carried happiness in itself. It’s one of the few absolutely beautiful things that do not carry a battlefield within. It’s neutral. It makes no demands on us whatsoever. It’s just there. It erases everything superfluous. There are no roads. No choices to make. Continue Reading

I’ll start by saying that some of the looks on the runway this year look like there was no concept behind them, just a range of ideas thrown in together. As I was watching the Chanel collection, I had big doubts that Gabrielle would approve of Lagerfeld’s choices, especially taking into consideration mademoiselle Coco’s aversion for short skirts. The fact that Gabrielle Chanel introduced the tweed suit post WWII, which became the symbol of a generation does not mean that anything made of tweed carries the Chanel heritage. Continue Reading
