Golden Dreams

novo1

For a while now, pleated skirts are every girl’s must have item. Have to say, I was a little bit skeptic about it because literally I never wore a skirt that covers my knees. I though it will make me look like my grandma, considering I mostly wear flat shoes.

So, the skirt was regularly avoided in every shop until recently when I was browsing through ASOS, as usual trying to spend money on things that I don’t need. This skirt looked so pretty that I didn’t care about price, especially not length. I’m wearing it now with ankle boots but it will look great on sandals or heels or even ballet flats.

I just can’t be more happy about it.

Another obsession at the moment is velvet. I managed to avoid the trap of buying expensive velvet dresses, trousers or coats which will be out of fashion probably by the end of this year and opted for safer option –  accessories and boots.

These boots are from Dorothy Perking and I love the fact that they are actually navy blue but depending on the light they are changing color and sometimes look black.

Velvet bag has a long story. It’s been sold out in burgundy and black for a long time now. I managed to hunt down last one at Topshop sale last week after looking for it literally everywhere! Great cure for January depression!

Sometimes it’s just worth it to travel around  London just to get that perfect dress and that was the case with this one. In four days it basically disappeared from all Topshop stores including online. Luckily,one was waiting just me.

As you may notice this dress looks similar to Revolve red dress with small stars, seen on many bloggers this summer, which is probably why this cheaper model from Topshop gained so much popularity . I simply fell in love with this dress! Maybe the reason is that is so easy to wear, no need for much accessories or maybe because wrap gave me so much desired waist.

I’ve used the opportunity of few days of summer in London to make most of it.

On this Sunday I met my friend for brunch. We chose Refinery Southwark, a retro-chic cafe and cocktail bar just the short walk from Tate Moder. Once inside you will see the funky decor with industrial lighting, the bar on the one side and restaurant like area on the other side. From the big list of cocktails and food, I chose classics mojito, chicken and kale caesar and for dessert Raspberry Panna Cotta which all was delicious and worth coming back

Everyone is Wearing: Bomber Jacket

Her majesty leather jacket will have to be satisfied with second place this spring because now it’s all about the bomber.

Originally bomber jackets were made for pilots during the World War I because planes didn’t have a cabin so pilots needed something comfortable and resistant to wind and cold.

Leslie Leroy Irvin, the man who founded the company for design and manufacture of parachutes and an avid fan of flying, knew about pilots needs for a functional garment so he came up with the first bomber jacket lined with warm fur.

From 70’s different subcultures embraced this trend and as the hip hop music gained popularity bomber slowly became part of  the mainstream culture.

Today on the market there are bomber jackets with prices over £10,000 which says enough about the new identity of once military clothing item.

Gucci SS16

 

 

Almost everyone presented some sort of bomber jacket in their Spring Summer 16 collections: Gucci offers a green model embellished with golden and silver thread, McQueen proposed satin one in a color of Bazooka chewing gum, Chloe welcomes the spring with  green bomber jacket decorated with embroidered tiger while Stella McCartney chose girly motifs like flowers and pink horses.

High street also loves this trend so in Zara you will be able to find it in several models, from monochrome to those with flowers and at H&M you will find retro ones decorated with sequins.

Here are some of my favourites

 

 

London Fashion Week SS16

This year for the first time in my life I got amazing opportunity to go on London Fashion Week and I actually could choose between 2 designers Gareth Pugh and Jasper Conran. I chose Conran because I’m onto wearable fashion,even though Pugh is much more interesting and unusual.

Show was great,inspired by nature. Conran probably used all shades of green he could find with just a little bit of white here and there .
