New Dresses from Zara

Known as Zara addict, I spend most of my shopping time browsing Zara’s shelves which resulted in 95% Zara closet at home.  It’s very hard for me to say what I don’t like about Zara, maybe crowded shops and endless queues or the fact UK’s Zara is more expensive than any other Zara in Europe? But clothes-like, there is nothing I wouldn’t buy.

With every new collection I realise there are many things I’m missing in my closet but the first thing I’m attracted to is dresses.

According to new collection, off shoulders dresses with frills, retro dresses and floral ones  will still be popular. Polka dots are back which will probably be great news for those who love 50’s fashion.

Here are my favourites!

Duck&Waffle

This place is so exclusive that you need to book in advance for almost 2 months and the reason is the view, of course 🙂 Duck & Waffle is on the 40th floor of Heron Tower and from there you can see almost whole London, up to the Wembley and you are just next to the Gherkin which looks so great with all the lights on! Anyway, the view is great so I was going there because of that, I didn’t expect much when it comes to food, mainly because there was 5 thing on the menu and I only eat chicken.

And we order the whole chicken! Yep, on the Sunday evening, 10pm,whole chicken and two of us! Not very healthy but it was so delicious! Probably the best chicken I ever had.

If you didn’t try Duck & Waffle you really have to. If you book now maybe you will there in January but it is worth of waiting.

Blanket Scarf

There are so many things I love about the autumn:  leaves, hot cocoa, plaid, layers, boots, and of course, blanket scarves.  Not only are they the perfect accessory, but they are also a great way to keep nice and cozy this time of year.

This year scarfs are even better because they are actually  blankets and everyone who knows me knows that I’m a blanket addict if that thing even exist.

I purchased my one on Amazon, but they are everywhere so I’m thinking to get few more. You can’t have too many if you live in London

I bought this dress month ago and as you can see I did some alternations 🙂 it’s shorter than original H&M dress but I just like it this way. It’s my favourite thing this autumn

Favourite Beauty

Until now I never had concealer and then I picked up this Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer and I have to say that I’m amazed. I don’t use anything else for my face except this. It has amazing coverage, a lovely sponge applicator, it feels soft and hydrating.I just don’t know how I lived without one before.

Favourite Book

My favourite thing during the Autumn/Winter season is reading under my, earlier mentioned, blanket. I’m reading all the time but once in a while I find a book that is so amazing I have to share my review with everyone.

This time, the book is The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. It’s a psychological thriller about the man named Ted who meets mysterious woman Lilly on the flight from London to Boston.  Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage and his wife Miranda, who he’s sure is cheating on him. But their game turns dark when Ted jokes that he could kill Miranda for what she’s done. Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, “I’d like to help.”

This was a page turner, with so many twists and turns that I stopped counting. Book worth reading.

Little White Lace Dress

IMG_0466

This dress I got from Abercrombie & Fitch year ago when I was still thinking that London actually has summer! Year later I’m wearing this dress second time and second time in Croatia. Why London,why?!

Anyway, this dress was love at first and even though it’s tiny and really summery and I will not have much chance to wear it,I’m happy that I have it in my closet because of this great Croatian summer nights

Bill’s

I’ve been at Bill’s lots of times and I keep coming back mostly because relaxed,feeling-like-home vibe. Bill’s is a UK-wide restaurant and grocery chain.The decor is  colourful and fun with mis-matched chairs and handwritten blackboards all around the place. They sell tonnes of products which are all on display meaning you’ll never get bored of looking around.You buy sauces, pickles and beers, but also fresh vegetables and more.

Bill’s motto is “from breakfast till bed time” so there is menu for every part of the day.From eggs ,burger to steak and cheesecake.They even have afternoon tea,and delicious warm scones.

There is 18 restaurants in London and if there is any chance that you still didn’t visited this cool place,go now 🙂

Calzedonia Bikini

I’m going to Barcelona in less than 2 weeks so I’m hoping that it will be warm and sunny so we can have a swim because weather in London feels like summer will never come (9th month of wearing jacket :()  Over the years I had difficult time finding right bikini because I’m skinny,no curves(if you know what I mean ;)) so it’s hard for me to feel comfortable in something that doesn’t fit. When I tried this bikini on it was love at first sight. I didn’t even ask for price 🙂

I must say this year Calzedonia bikinis are amazing

Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish

Barry M are one of my favourite affordable nail polishes.I know I’m always writing about Barry M 🙂  As soon as they release new line of nail polish I’m first in the shop. Long time ago I had gel nails and it was nice but also expensive and you have to do it often if you want it to look nice so good people in nail polish industry invented nail polish that looks like pro salon gel. That’s the case with new Barry M collection . It’s available in seven  shades and a transparent topcoat.It bonds to the nail like a gel  but can still be removed with a regular remover. And what is the most important thing for me-it dries pretty quickly

The Only Dress You Need

SP5-090-07 London fashion studio Self portrait is excellent in combining romantic with contemporary . Every dress highlights women figure so they are great for evening events . But I think one model from their spring/summer collection is especially popular among women mostly fashion bloggers . They named it Azaelea and it’s classic ladylike cut with full skirt which goes amazing with heels . Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 13.32.50.png Azaelea is made with lace with lining in skin colour and it comes in white and red.

Met Gala 2015 Best Dressed

MTI5OTU0MDM1MzEzNzIzNDAy

Zendaya  in Fausto Puglisi

The Met Ball took place in New York City last night, celebrating the opening of the China Through the Looking Glass exhibition.

This year the official dress code was “Chinese white tie” but I think some of the guests didn’t know what that means. Few of them like Beyonce, Kim and J.Lo showed up almost naked.

However,here is the quick look at my favourite red carpet moments from the 2015 Met Gala

MTI5OTUzNjA3Njk2MDI4OTQ2

Fan Bing BingChinese actress showed to everyone how’s done in sequin dress and silk cape

MTI5OTUzNzgzNzg5Njg4MDgy

Georgia May Jagger in Guccithis robe-like dress with Chinese embroideries  was red carpet debut for new Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele . This custom made dress is Asian inspired with flowers and birds and hand embroidered with silk threads, glass beads and crystals

MTI5OTUzNTAzMjc0NzgwNjgy

Bee Shaffer in Alexander McQueen – Anne Wintour’s daughter attends Met Gala every year and every year she puts on the shame lots of A – list stars.Deep red gown with cherry blossom was simple and sophisticated

Diane Kruger in Chanel Couture – leggings under tunic look was popular this year but no one pulled it of better than Diane. I really like her Judith Leiber red clutch

Keri Russell in Altuzarra – Even though this dress in not very Chinese ,jade feathers looked amazing on Keri

Kate Beckinsale in Diane von Furstenberg- This DVF gown isn’t exactly in line with the event dress code and it’s not dramatic but it looks great on Kate

Dianna Agron in Tory Burch– one shoulder chiffon dress with red and white bird details looked stunning on young actress
