My Calvins

My Calvins

Big flashy brand logos – they just don’t do it for me anymore. When I was a child, New Yorker’s own brand “Fishbone” was all the rage. It may not have been particularly expensive (lucky for our poor parents), but all the girls in my school – me included – couldn’t get enough of that slightly macabre fishbone logo. Soon… Read more →

Florals and Fringes

Florals and Fringes

Florals and fringes, fringes and florals – they’re here, they’re there, they’re everywhere – don’t even try to outrun them this summer. While the floral trend is as omnipresent as ever, fringes are clearly celebrating a banging comeback. Embrace them on the edges of bags, skirts, on the side of trousers or jacket sleeves to make a lasting impression this… Read more →

Floral Obsession

Floral Obsession

Did I or did I not promise you a floral summer? Granted, in my previous post I kept my blooming floral obsession (see what I did there?) to a minimum; expressing it only through the botanical backdrop. Today, I decided to take it one step further and combine the floral backdrop with an equally floral crop top from boohoo.com. Isn’t… Read more →

Clean Slate

Clean Slate

We all start with a clean slate, our entire life ahead of us, naïve, honest and free of the worries of yesterday and the uncertainties of tomorrow. Life in the here and now – a luxury reserved to children. As toddlers, the only tomorrows we ever acknowledge are Christmas and our birthdays. Yesterday? Never even happened. Every day is a… Read more →

Tired of London, Tired of Life?

What Defines Us Turned One

What Defines Us turned one, and I missed it. Exactly one year and three days ago my baby celebrated its very first birthday, and I completely forgot about it. Not even the fact that my life is still a super turbulent rollercoaster ride can excuse the fact that I managed to forget my blog’s birthday. Or can it? I’d love… Read more →

Amsterdam Day 3

Amsterdam Day 3

After a fantastic evening at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam, too beat to attend the afterparty, I fell into my comfy hotel bed and started reflecting on the previous two days. The night would only bring the next morning, the LAST morning of our awesome trip to Amsterdam, and I just couldn’t believe how lucky I was to be given the… Read more →

Amsterdam Outfit Day 1

Amsterdam Outfit Day 1

Day 1 of my Amsterdam trip. I headed off to the airport at around 7am. It was one of the most miserable July days you could possibly imagine – rainy, windy and freezing cold. I was anticipating better weather in Amsterdam – maybe a few degrees warmer? – so I threw on a pair of culottes, ankle boots, a cream… Read more →

Amsterdam Day 1

Amsterdam Day 1

It already seems like a lifetime ago that Fashionchick invited me and three other lovely blogger girlies from Germany, France and the Netherlands to spend a fashion-packed weekend in Amsterdam. It was like a sweet dream I never wanted to end, but here I am, back in London, my suitcase still unpacked and reality finally catching up with me. Every… Read more →

The Art of Turning Heads – Fashion Week Edition

As a passionate fashion blogger on a budget attending Fashion Week – whether London Fashion Week or Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam (MBFA) – has been a huge dream of mine for many years. I can’t imagine anything more accelerating than immersing myself in the buzz of Fashion Week – new exciting collections, next season’s trends, emerging designers, the beautiful models,… Read more →

Summer Must-Have: Heeled Sandals

Summer Must-Have: Heeled Sandals

Hello lovelies, I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend! Now that April is almost over and summer is just around the corner, I couldn’t help but notice that I literally don’t own a single pair of summer shoes that isn’t older than 4 years. I have about 10 pairs of new black boots flying around in my flat,… Read more →
