It’s definitely about time I showed you this collaboration I did with a British brand Solewish back in June. I’ve fallen in love with their footwear, particularly the mesh boots you see above with their sort of a Yeezy-meets-Dior vibe. It’s getting a little chillier as we’re approaching fall so I think I’m gonna wear them a lot, especially since they are so easy to style with sweatshirts, bombers and denim.
I’ve been obsessed with this embroidered satin bomber lately and I just had to show it to you in one of more casual combos that I wore it in. Since I still got my tan on, I figured I’m gonna be wearing shorts until my legs turn blue again, so bear with me.
An outfit from a very nasty and cloudy day last week and two good news! First, I got myself a pastel D&G bag that I wanted for a long time and couldn’t find anywhere in this color (in case you’re interested, I have been abusing it over the past couple of weeks on Instagram). Second, I’m really happy when fellow bloggers make it big in the industry, this is the best motivation for me to work harder. I’m wearing a top from IvyRevel, a clothing brand by Swedish babe Kenza Zouiten, which recently went global with the support of H&M and PayPal. What’s unique about IvyRevel is that instead of designing trendy stuff the brand has launched a style lab that will define precisely which items the customers wanna wear and make them in limited quantities. Yay for technology in fashion!
If there’s one thing in my life that I’m never gonna quit it’s definitely searching for the perfect jeans. I’ve been craving a pair of vintage Levi’s for God knows how long, but last month I finally caved and got them off Ebay only to realize the wash and the fit are fine, but not perfect. I do love how they look on me, but I can’t help but wonder if I’m gonna be slightly luckier with my next denim purchase, and so the search continues.

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.
