Kalmanovich

Natalya and I shot these images in the hallway of the St. Regis Moscow Nikolskaya, where I was staying, while I was in Moscow, last week. I went there to “discover” Russian designers – not that any of them need discovering. There is already an amazing set of Russian (and Ukrainian) designers out there, some aren’t as known in Western…

The Best & Affordable Dresses for the Holidays 2016

It’s not long until Christmas (… soon after that New Years) and some of you may want to be extra festive and wear a red dress for the occasion. I recently got myself two red dresses for the holidays for under £50 and discovered so many more out there in a variety of styles and lengths to suit everyone’s taste. If…

#MyCalvins

I wake up and kick ass in my Calvins. Yes, that’s what I do and what I plan on doing leading up to the end of 2016, going into 2017. It’s Monday and one of those days in London when you wake up to grey and rainy skies, contemplating whether it is worth going to the gym or not. I prefer…

It’s Time for a Change !

Contrary to how I am dressed in these photos, I am starting to realise, as time goes by and certain changes are happening in my life, that I want to celebrate a brighter, more feminine side of me. I love wearing head-to-toe black and accessorising my looks with jewellery but I think now, more than ever, I want to go…

Jagged Edge

By the time you read this, the temperate will have dropped significantly (or increased if you live in the southern hemisphere) so you might want to add a winter coat to this look. But what I wanted to bring your attention to is  the current trend of cut off or, as I like to say, jagged edge jeans. Side note:…

Ribbed & Knit

High-street knitwear has improved with each season and it has never been more apparent with the latest collections stemming from H&M, in particular their ribbed knits. When I came across this dress and tried it on, I thought it reminded me of a mix of Ellery and Azzedine Alaia – the former in its design and the latter in the way it…

A Change in Direction

During the past month, a few things in my life have changed. I moved out of an apartment I had lived in for two years, whose atmosphere I was no longer enjoying. It was an environment that was not helping me to create the kind of content I wanted to and felt more like a prison than a sanctuary. I…

Midnight Blue

You know that feeling, in the summer, when you reach boiling point and you fantasize about the rain ? Weird, I know, coming from someone who complains about the rain that London constantly receives. My only solace in last week’s heat, when said boiling point was reached, was in wearing this airy crepe blue dress which allowed whatever little gust of…

Off-the-shoulder

I am not one to wear girly, frilly dresses but when I come across an amazing and affordable stand out piece, I’ll go for it without skipping a beat. Could this off-the-shoulder dress have come at a more perfect time? The temperature in London is hitting highs of 33 Celsius and it’s about time I exposed my shoulders to some…

How I Wear my Nike Lunar Epic Sneakers

Who would have thought that I would wear sneakers on a regular basis, even when not working out? I love sports luxe just like anyone out there but sometimes I tend to forget that my “running” sneakers work just as well outside of gym hours as they do when I am on the treadmill. I am also trying to give my…

The First of July

This is how I imagined the first of July to be – sunny and warm with people walking around in the teeny, tiniest tops and shorts. Sadly, but not surprisingly, that’s not the case in London. This week has been a mixture of rain and sunshine so much so that I’ve begun to wear my romper as a top, tucked…

Wimbledon Whites

Wimbledon starts today and although I have not made any plans to attend ( fingers crossed I do ) I have been going through my wardrobe to pick out some of my favourite white pieces to wear this week, weather permitting. Granted, this rule of wearing all white applies to the players more so than the spectators but if you will be…
