Day to night

day to night staples

I like the idea of having a few staples that can take me from day to night with just a few changes in accessories. Admittedly, I like the idea of not changing at all before going out:-). Here’s how it works:

1. Leather biker: All Saints

2. Platform sandals: Balenciaga S/S 2010

3. Sunnies: Linda Farrow Luxe

4. Silk blend tank: Kain

5. Gold plated ring: YSL

6. Pleated skirt: Pretaportobello

7. Crocodile ring: Topshop

8. Clutch: Proenza Schouler PS1

9. Nail lacquer: OPI Tasmanian devil

10. Dress: Dolce & Gabbana

11. Lace ring: Aurélie Bidermann

12. Golden eyeliner pencil: Benefit Cosmetics


Grunge princess


Erin Wasson for Zadig & Voltaire. Not NEW but so inspiring. I mean, seriously: how many people do u know (models included) that can wear a snake print blazer and still look cool?




Gotta love Erin.


The Karolina way

LOVE Karolina! Great way of reinventing my favourite sweater-tucked-into-skirt signature combo.


Queen of effortless cool

Now here’s a lesson on how to work this season’s COLOR trend the ‘Alexa way’: Minimize the effort and maximize the effect by lifting your winter staples (woolly sweater, black leather leggings, booties) with a pop colored shoulder bag. WOW! It’s so simple…

THE blogger accessory

I guess every fashion blogger has already faced this dilemma: How to carry around your camera safely, while still looking stylish?? And indeed a fashionable camera bag has been a defenite market gap in the social media era!

So thanks to one of our favourite bloggers Andy, we will soon be able to carry our camera in style with this limited edition camera bag:


This collaboration between a fashion blogger and Kipling is the only one I have seen so far, which actually really makes sense!

Congrats to Andy!!


The maxi length

Bon, it’s official: I converted from being a total opponent of the maxi skirt length (don’t know how many times I prayed to my dearest coupine that I would never wear it…sorry for that!!). And now I TOTALLY love this trend.

How to best wear the maxi length?? Turn to  style princess Olivia herself…she is THE proof that even (or especially) petite girls can rock this trend!!


Follow Olivia’s lead and style the maxi skirt/dress with a belt, leather jacket or fur and a hat for a laidback, yet polished style!
