Mary Katrantzou x VS


As you've been able to read on my blog before, one of my absolute favourite brands out there is Mary Katrantzou. I used to work with them when I lived in London, and worked front of house for two of their shows at Central Saint Martins during London Fashion Week. Two of the most incredible experiences - you can read more about SS16 here and about AW16 here. 

So when pictures of the latest Victoria's Secret runway show started popping up on my Instagram feed, I was thrilled to read about their collab with Mary Katrantzou. It's VS's very first collab with a female designer, and the colourful, uplifting, bold, and strong designs couldn't be more perfect. The patterns and colours Mary Katrantzou is so well known for are like a second skin, but more colourful, happier and confidence-boosting. Hoping to be able to hop on a Eurostar soon to discover the capsule collection in London's Victoria's Secret boutique!

As you probably have noticed, there has been no activity on my blog so far this year. I've been very busy with work and personal projects & have also been travelling quite a bit the past year. Many things have changed, like a new flat, taking on new responsibilities, and sadly, I wasn't able to follow up on my blog with this new and fast rhythm. As I'm shifting into yet another rhythm and have set new goals for the upcoming months, I've decided to update this blog, and to publish a couple of travel guides that I've been thinking about for a while (from Israel to Lapland, I have a quite a lot of content to share with you!). To follow up on a daily basis, I kindly invite you to follow me on Instagram, where I'm much more of a regular than on here, and I'll keep you posted on my upcoming travel guides, as well as some looks & trends that I wanted to share on here. Speak to you soon ♥

Grandma's Curtains


How to give your outfit that couture touch in an instant without breaking the bank? I'd say Sacha is the ultimate way to go for this: I've received their silver floral printed ankle boots last week & I've been wearing them non-stop ever-since. Rocking Grandma's curtains (how several people, mainly men, have already described my shoes) all while staying comfortable with the block heel, and original with its cool print, different on each shoe. 

Sacha Silver Platform Shoes


Last Summer, I already wrote this article about platform shoes, and it's been ever for longer that I'm obsessed with platform shoes – as you know, I'm a big big fan of basically all Nineties trends. So when I spotted this silver star-printed pair of plaform shoes on the webshop of Sacha, I fell in love at one. 

Nineties Kid


As you may have noticed on several occasions, I love falling back on trends from the nineties, such as chokers, crop tops, fish tights and several other trends. One of the trends I've never understood and I've always refused to wear is wearing a t-shirt underneath your dress. I remember aged 7 or 8, I was shopping with my Mum and there was this spaghetti strap dress I really liked, but my Mum told me I could only wear this dress with a t-shirt underneath, and the shop owner completely agreed. I blankly refused to do so, went home without the dress, and have refused to wear a shirt under my dress on every single occasion in my life, whether it was my Mum suggesting so, or when one or two years ago every single fashion blogger was wearing this trend.
