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 →

What Defines Us

What Defines Us

Sometimes doors close. Sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes we need to let things come to an end. These words of wisdom may sound completely cheesy, and easier said than done, but they’re very important to remember. It’s simple really. Just cry your heart out, cut yourself some slack, embrace the next morning, and then lean back, take a… Read more →

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

A post like no other, a post marking the end of an era and a new beginning, the first post back home. No more London pictures, no more London advice – my blog has officially arrived in Germany. Although my path has already led me to a different German city, I am excited to show you the first outfit pictures… Read more →

The Duster Coat

The Duster Coat

The only thing I regret about this duster coat is not buying it any earlier. In fact, I regret not buying any duster coat earlier. I always imagined their oversized slouchiness would drown my petite stature. I had tried on many trench coats before, and every single one of them looked a little unflattering around my narrow shoulders and wide… Read more →

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells

“Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…” Nope, I’m not done yet with the festive theme. Doesn’t this dress just scream Christmas to you? It is either the perfect sartorial answer to a well lit and beautifully decorated Christmas tree (note to myself: buy a pair of forest green tights and fairy lights to wrap around my body in… Read more →

Comfort Fashion 2.0

Comfort Fashion 2.0

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: For me, fashion is all about comfort. Comfort and fashion, fashion and comfort…one doesn’t exist without the other. During my university days, I would regularly force myself into the tiniest dresses – as you do – to go dancing in some of London’s so called finest nightclubs. Dancing turned into gently… Read more →

The Return Of the Midi Skirt

The Return Of The Midi Skirt

Forget your mini skirts and shun your maxis. This season is all about the midi. Whether you prefer smart pencil cuts or flattering A-line shapes, wide pleats or an asymmetrical hem, the midi is the only skirt length to be seen in right now. Midi skirts are feminine, elegant and incredibly versatile. Go for wide-set pleats for the perfect 50’s… Read more →

Must.Not.Be.Cold.

Must.Not.Be.Cold.

The one thing that puzzled me the most when I first moved to the UK was the British resistance to cold. And by that I mean people who walk around in flip flops and T-shirts while temperatures hardly hit the zero mark. And it’s not only me who has noticed this oddity of British life. All my international friends have,… Read more →

Sunkissed

Sunkissed

Happy Monday, my loves! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. If you read my blog regularly, you might have noticed that I have a huge thing for the non-colour black. When in doubt, go all black everything – that’s basically the sartorial mantra I’ve been living by since I was a teen. A black look just hardly ever… Read more →

The Boyfriend Denim Shorts

The Boyfriend Denim Shorts

While I don’t actually wear shorts that much – they are either too lose around my waist or too tight around my legs – I do have one particular pair I absolutely adore.  The shorts I’m talking about weren’t always shorts, though. When I bought them almost ten years ago (they’re almost vintage, no?) on a language trip in Eastbourne… Read more →
