Look of the day

be yourself x asos

January 12, 2016


As part of Asos Be Yourself project I was asked to pick an outfit from Asos that would represent my everyday work style and answer a couple of questions about my work. I have to admit I’m lucky to wear whatever I like whenever I like since I don’t work at an office anymore, but naturally I try to make my clothes look appropriate to where I’m going and fulfill specific tasks.

1. Where do you work and what’s your position?
I work as a fashion stylist on shootings, a personal stylist and a blogger.

2. Which aspects of your work make you get out of bed every morning with enthusiasm?
Every day is not like the other, at work I’m always challenged creatively and get to meet new inspiring people everyday. I’m a huge perfectionist and it makes me happy to see my work highly appreciated, and for that I’m ready to wake up as early as needed.

3. What is a standard dress code in your industry?
No dresscode whatsoever.

4. What constitutes your ultimate outfit combination?
My ultimate combination has to be comfortable, flattering and trendy. I need to be at multiple places throughout the day so I keep all these aspects in mind, when I get dressed in the morning.


5. What are your favorite work shoes and why?
Definitely ankle boots. They are edgy, comfortable and work with so many outfit combinations.

6. Any tips on how to save time doing your hair in the morning?
There’s this old school thing I’m doing every morning. After I wash and blow dry my hair I’m using velcro rollers to add some volume to the roots while I’m doing my makeup. It works!

7. Can you give an advice, fashion-related or not, to the people wishing to work in your industry?
The hardest thing is always to persuade yourself you can achieve things, once you do that the rest is a piece of cake! As for the fashion advice, always analyze the effect you want your clothes to have on people and dress according to that.

8. Why you chose this outfit combination?
I wore this particular outfit yesterday, which was my normal work day, where I styled a shooting in the morning, had my pictures taken in the afternoon, went to pickup clothes and accessories for the upcoming shooting and had a meeting with a client after. A warm statement coat and the turtleneck kept me warm, while the moderate heel on the boots and some loose-fitting jeans kept me comfortable. In a warmer weather I would probably replace the coat with a blazer, and wear some pumps instead, but this pretty much sums up what I like to wear everyday.


I’m wearing:

Faux fur coat – Asos
Turtleneck – Asos
Jeans – Asos
Snake print boots – Asos
Bag – Saint Laurent
Watch – Mark Bale

    Ника! Прекрасный слог! Я зачиталась просто, такое превосходное владение языком. Каждый раз читаю и не знаю, что же меня больше восхищает безупречный вкус или манера письма. С сожалением замечаю, что мой английский уже не тот..А на шубку эту сама заглядывалась))
