A Day in The Angel Suite

Spending the afternoon in Victoria’s Secret Angel Suite, what a way to kick off the week, right? Valentine's Day came and went (most fashion people spent it at New York fashion week anyway) Fifty Shades is mostly forgotten (still have not seen it, movie date anyone?) However, I am not letting you forget the importance of sultry adornment. On the top of Victoria's Secret New Bond Street store there is a little hidden sanctuary, where you can get to play angel for a day. Highly recommended, not just on Mondays.

BALENCIAGA coat
ACNE belt
DKNY dress
GIANVITO ROSSI shoes
FENDI sunglasses

We continue with some street style from fashion week, the story of fluffy textures also gets a sequel but in feathers! How wonderful is this dress? New season, at its best layered. Trust me to daytime tame any cocktail dress, my coat wardrobe takes care of that in no time. Sexy heels though fight for the party look, it’s all about contrasts when it comes to putting together an interesting look. My Gianvito’s have been heavily featured lately, but they are my sneakers.

Physically in London but mentally still so in Paris. These beautiful streets were kind to me this time, great people, inspiring attitudes and over all good vibes. Can I stay for a month or two? Must not forget it’s always just a 2 hour train ride away. I took a serious winter meets spring approach on one of the days at fashion week. Delicate lace sandals paired with a big, not to mention impressive, fur stole, nothing says season change like the combo of fur and open toes. Am I right?

I have no problem with double texting and same goes for my dressing, you saw my coat in the pervious post, but it’s so good, you are going to see it again. I just have a lot of important things to say/show. Totally stealing the limelight and I don’t even mind, my fabulous Nicholas Kirkwood fur shoes. These have been waiting for a debut so what better timing than Paris fashion week. Letting my shoes do all the talking while we step into bare leg season with my partner in crime Tamara, life is good right now.

DONNA IDA jeans
ALEXANDER WANG x HM belt

5 INCH AND UP x RIVER ISLAND boots

I'm back in another black power suit, please excuse the delay. The last stretch of fashion month is on and although I'm definitely longing back to my normal life, it's been a great and incredibly inspiring few weeks. I wore this get-up in London, what can I say - I feel most powerful in black, can't help it, don't even want to try. I realized it's the first time these River Island boots make an appearance in one of my outfits, I designed them to be best on bare legs but how good is the snake sock-like feature with all black? Still a few pairs left on the website if you fancy a comfortable 5 inch heel. No one believes me when claim them to be comfortable, but did you really think that I would put my name on a uncomfortable shoe? I'm a woman with too much experience of uncomfortable heels.

Spring superhero

And so we concurred London, which felt very mild after the frostbitten NYC. I got a bit carried away celebrating the fact that I could ease into my spring wardrobe in February, notice the lack of black and the missing heavy coat, we are getting somewhere. I wore brand new season Charlie May with a superhero-like cape, I would like to say it was all well planned but the truth is that I was forced to rely on the newness that I picked up from the post office after flying straight in from New York to take on London fashion week. I few outfits lined up while I enjoy missing out on Milan, because I need my strength for Paris!

The hero piece that kept we warm all week. Overly long sleeves, massive collar, you might remember it comes with a matching skirt, too. This weeks take was however a bit more tailored, three-courters palazzo pants came to freshen the silhouette. May it remain a mystery how many pairs of cut off tights I wore underneath.

NYC survival

So weather took an awkward turn in NYC, so instead of wearing a nicely planned outfit, I had to wear everything - kinda like Joey from Friends. However, we made it and the second week of fashion month is already in full swing here in London, which feels very much like a tropical destination. Hello bare legs - finally!
