The Aster Jeans
I am so in love with my two-tone denim Rachel Comey Aster jeans which have a very eye catching retro-inspired silhouette. The gorgeous coin-like medallions which detail the waistband and rings which accent the belt loops are impeccable!
I styled the jeans with a plain black tee and a red handkerchief around the neck which you can shop here.

I got the blues for London…missing that town already even though it’s been just a few weeks since my return!
On this gloomy London day I decided to embrace the velvet trend yet once again but this time with wide leg pants and a cat detailed shirt.
I styled them with white boots and my new Gucci clutch.
Top and Pants: Topshop
Shoes: River Island
I am so happy I got to buy those stunning Gucci runway hand embroidered boots…they’re fascinating! I styled them with a Velvet plead skirt by Topshop and the new Gucci Clover belt on my way out to lunch last week in London. I wore a simple high neck pullover which I styled with an oversized black bow to add some glam to it.
Hope you like the look.
Pullover and Skirt: Topshop

Well…I’ve been trying to find a different word for vintage. A synonym. It doesn’t really exist. Apparently the word vintage actually stems from an era in which high quality wine was produced. Interesting fact no?
One of the lucky sunny days 2 months ago in London I went all vintage with my outfit. I wore this crop top by Stella and Jamie on a knee length skirt by & Other Stories.
I added a huge bow hairclip by River Island to the outfit and my all time favorite belt!
Top: Stella and Jamie
Skirt: & Other Stories
Headpiece: River Island

The work-chic look
One of the hottest trends this season is having your hair tucked inside your clothing and to be honest it’s quite comfortable!
I was shopping around Mayfair on this gloomy London day. I wanted to keep warm yet not look like a snowball with all the layering again so I wore a thermal shirt and a embroidered T-shirt over it with this gorgeous TopShop blazer.
I styled them with my new Karen Millen knee length skirt and Start Weitzman boots.
Skirt: Karen Millen
Boots: Stuart Weitzman
On this casual day in London I was heading out “bag less” to buy some things I went all white.
This is one of the easiest outfits and most elegant stylish in my opinion. Adding white boots to a white mini skirt or shorts and trying to go all white whilst adding a touch of fur in winter is always fun!
I added this fur Zara vest so I don’t freeze and my Markus Lupfer shades to add some extra spice to the look!
Sunglasses: Markus Lupfer x Linda Farrow
Boots: Roberto Botella
A fun day around Mayfair I decided to bring out some of my Russian family roots this winter with my vintage Russian Ushanka. An Ushanka is a Russian fur cap with ear flaps that can be tied at the chin to protect the ears. It’s interesting to know that the word ushanka actually derives from ushi(у́ши) which means “ears” in Russian.
I wanted to create an edgy look so I styled it with this fringe pullover that I love by Saks. To add some further winter spice to the look I added this red checkered Mavi shirt underneath and styled them with a pair of simple Joe’s jeans and my sharktooth Givenchy boots.
Stella and Jamie
This is one of my most loved outfits lately. It features this gorgeous Stella and Jamie leather jacket along one fine skirt by the very same designer. I gave it a school girl look by wearing over the knee socks and a white simple collar. Keeping everything black and white as I like it!
I’m loving everything Stella and Jamie and I’m proud to be working and styling outfits for them. You can find their products in many stores including Saks.
Be sure to check them out and here’s a little insight about the brand:
The Stella & Jamie woman’s wardrobe of choice features a contemporary aesthetic with clean lines, feminine shapes and luxurious fabrics such as silk, cashmere and leather.
Stella & Jamie celebrity followers include, to name a few: Eva Longoria, Lea Michele, Kourtney Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Fergie, Emily Blunt and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Created by April Mun, Stella & Jamie launched it’s first collection of rock-edgy leather motorcycle jackets with feminine printed-silk dresses in Spring 2007. This was instantly adored by fashion industry and Hollywood’s elite, including Ashley Green and Jessica Biel. Since its launch, Stella & Jamie have expanded into women’s full collection and leather goods.

Rarely do we find gorgeous colorful winter blouses like this striking blue Marc Jacobs blouse. I love turquoise and maybe because I believe it goes well with my hair color.
I always enjoy styling turquoise with leopard prints…turquoise is always a match with brown shades…try it out!
I wore it with a very special skirt which was my grandma’s design…it has patches of black flowers sewn on it…yes…it’s one hell of a vintage piece which was part of the things she had designed in Italy in the late 1960s! Best part of it all…it’s not even a skirt, it’s a short 😉

Necklace: Simple Caractere

The Carry-Over Lace Up
Visiting London for some pre-Christmas spirit is something I have been doing for many years continuously but to my luck it hadn’t snowed during my visits expect for this year. To my luck it only snowed lightly, so yes!…Despite the rain showers and snow I still have a lot of outfits to show you.
As mentioned before I love investing in carry-over classic items when it comes to high end brands. Today I was wearing my classic Marni lace-ups. If you’re a fan of brogues-style shoes then you will love those. They’re not exactly brogues as they don’t have the decorative perforations or broguing but they’re simply brogues-shoe shaped with the same lace-ups. That’s for the shoe. Now the accessory on top…the lace-up fringe. The Marni lace-up fringe piece can be changed to your liking…mine is white here as the white fringe comes with the burgundy shoe but I have a few fringe colors ordered on their way already!
I styled the shoes with my white Sophie Rue shorts, a Topshop shirt, Markus Lupfer (x Linda Farrow) shades and the classic Python Lulu Guinness clutch.

Clutch: Lulu Guinness
The Hyde Away
Here’s some pictures I never had the chance to share with you guys. My favorite spot at Hyde park again. It was a chilled day and didn’t require much styling.
I wore the classic Kenzo sweater with ripped comfy printed jeans that I fell in love with at first sight. My very first time to buy a pair of jeans from Forever21 and I must say they’re truly comfy and cool!
Comme des F Down
My wildest guess is that Comme des F Down is one of the best selling streetwear icons this year. Comme Des F Down became famous and sought after when A$AP Rocky started wearing the brand. We all know where the brands name is coming from, it’s usually always sold out and I love it 🙂
Strolling though Grosvenor square today I was wearing my favorite cross bag by Gigi’s New York. It’s absolutely beautiful and I have been wearing it daily this past month. What I love most about it is the chic buckle, the high quality leather and the fact that it has a zipper too.
This spot has always been perhaps one of my favorite spots in Hyde Park, London. As you already know I’m an animal lover and here you can have the best interaction with little and big duckies and birdies of all sorts while enjoying yummy food and a beautiful view.I was wearing this dress by River Island with a big “Rawr” on it and my golden best seller shoes by Bimba and Lola that I still can’t get over! Aren’t they amazing? 🙂
Loving my new Leopard-print overalls by Koogal! They’re true fun and especially when paired with the gorgeous Bimba and Lola best seller shoes!
King of the jungle
A gloomy day in London today I was wearing my Minkpink “King of the Jungle” dress. What I love most about this dress is that it can be worn during any season even during winter with a coat on top.
