AIVERC, the new watch company just have launched their first collection! In collaboration with them, please let me introduce you their amazing collection!
The whole collection is inspired by the world-renowned Sydney Opera House, Faena Art Centre and Royal Ontario Museum.
So you know, fashion and architecture are like siblings. Then you can get the best inspiration to your line from an amazing building. My true love is their black watch named Ontario. From the name of the watch and the inspiration, you can guess that the other two are Faena and Opera. Genuinely I really love the idea that they have named their watches based on the inspiration. Therefore my outfit for this watch was inspired by its details. So I have decided to go a bit elegant, but on my own way. Since suits do not even suit me, I’ve tried to do elegant that will work on every body type. Even though I am skinny and have wide shoulders I’ve never could wear a suit on the way that has to be worn. To me a white T-shirt with a nice sweatshirt is everything. And the Aiverc watch have some similar details too. With stripes and several black, metallic and indigo on the Ontario. Until most of the watches are separated for occasions, these ones are wearable from dinner to even a gym. Who can’t love a watch that looks good on his/her wrist when they do sport or go out to have a fancy dinner at a nice restaurant. So this is why I’m really familiar with their design! To me Avierc has nailed it, and my personal favorite is the Ontario.

Last night Levi’s relaunched their legendary Engineered Jeans in Florance, Italy.
The Levi’s Engineered Jeans revolutionized the jeans industry with its unorthodox cut and progressive style and has since become a legend for Levi’s.
The returning 2019 spring-summer collection is based on the original engineering concept, combined with forward-looking design.

As with the original collection, the current edition also receives the red two rider labels and the Levi’s Engineered Jean’s hanger and the inner pockets printed with the Levi’s Engineered Jeans logo. These elements have all contributed to the success of the 1999 collection. But are now in a new version.
It also features modern-style pieces such as the 502 Regular Taper and 512 Slim Taper and the 570 Loose Tape, the 541 Athletic Fit Farmers and the Reissue Trucker Jack, which dress men up from head to the toe.
For women, the fashionable and exciting Loose Jean, Slouchy Taper trousers and the Reissue Trucker jacket are available. In addition to the Levi’s Engineered Jeans, new Levi’s Engineered Knit pieces have been created for men. For the first time in Levi’s history, it uses 3D binding technology. Thanks to its innovative construction technique, starts to assemble pieces at the time of binding, allowing the number of panels used to be reduced from 10 to 5. This reduces the amount of material waste and the length of production time, while the result of less stitching is extra comfort. To me, Levi’s was always a go-to denim brand for years. Genuinely I really love this new collection. It’s good to see, that they loved it too because they have redesigned a bit the Engineered collection and started to sell them again.

Christmas gift guide is one of my favorite article to write each year. This time I am writing this guide at the very last minutes. Because I’m such a bad and last minute shopper. We all have some friends or family member, who buys gifts at the 24th of December. So this article is your lifesaver one if you are looking for some high-street or luxury gifts to order to yourself, to your boyfriend, dad or son…

To me, Christmas gift guides are the go articles in this season. I’ve got so many inspirations from my beloved magazine editors. They are so over the top. Genuienly this one is my first ever Christmas gift guide so I can’t wait to see what do you think of it!

I’ve tried to put together some useful and some amazing items to you to choose from. As you know by online shopping you can save tons of times for yourself. The best reason why I love to buy all the gifts online is because I can stay at home, surrounded by fluffy pillows, sipping some tea or mulled wine, enjoying the warmth of home and have nobody who hits me, who steals the last one of the size or color I’ve wanted to buy and so on. The only thing you have to worry about is that the shipping works very well and they can’t overbook themselves.

Let’s jump into my ultimate Christmas gift guide for 2018! Let’s start with the coats! My biggest frustration in every year is to find the perfect coat. It has to look good and be warm enough…

Basic outfit is basic until you keep it low!

Since I have finished my studies, I am so busy by building my own company So I spend most of my times at my favorite café with my computer. In case of that, I really don’t want to wear something crazy. So my outfits always end up by wearing black or white. It is strange from somebody, who does fashion on every single online platform. But, to me, it is just creative freedom. Recently, I have felt like, that I better to spice up my basic outfit with something cool, that is wearable for most of you. So I have ended up buying so many accessories, like this little bag, or this raincoat.

To me, black will be always my go-to color, so I just trying to find accessories that could give some extra to my usual daily looks. At this time they are this see-through white raincoat, that is super warm, so it could be your autumn jacket if you would like to. The second thing that I have added is this little bag, that could work as a phone case or a wallet. It just depends on you. I have used it as a phone case and cardholder. To be honest…

By the way, I’d like to recommend you to roll up your jeans if you are wearing some boots. It looks a bot more elegant than just having it curling up.

My second and last tip is just to try to find the balance between dope enough and too much. I have had to make mistakes a lot to be able to find what is dope or too much on me. To me, a basic outfit is always a good opportunity to wear something unnecessary.

Sidenote: I was searching for this turtleneck for seasons… I recommend you to buy it as fast as you can before you miss it as I have done in the past two seasons…

Since fashion week was so busy, I had a little amount of time to have some fun too. I’ve gone to Marni and then to the first ever Fila show to shoot some street style. Lot of you asks me in emails and dm-s on my Instagram, that where I get my inspiration to my looks, or do I have any influencers on board, who I get inspiration. Genuinely I have to tell you that most of my inspirations are from street style images from fashion week.

As you can see, this article is so much mo focusing to details. I think, that copying a whole outfit is so boring. I truly believe on good ideas, and amazing details, that you should try and get inspired from. To me, these images are helping a lot to find out, what to try in the next season. I can’t wait to get a metallic phone case or wear a baby blue suit. They seem like so much fun to me.

After shooting some amazing outfits, I had the opportunity to join the Dolce and Gabbana team for one of their photoshoots. I have taken some really amazing images there, that you hopefully like as much as I do.

We have started our first show at Milan fashion week just right after we have landed at the airport. The first show was Alberto Zambelli. He did such an amazing job with white and silver colors. The textures and patterns were so young and playful. Especially, my favorites were the shoes. I can not find words to describe it to you how unique and eye-catching they are. The monochromatic colors are so in fashion and you have to try them if you haven’t done it yet!

Alberto Zambelli

After the Alberto Zambelli show, the next day, we went to see the Luisa Beccari show. Team Beccaria made such an amazing job with the flowy and elegant look. They really represented their vision that they are a contemporary female dreamer. All the looks are so wearable and well made. The flower and butterfly prints are so spring summer. They have used both prints in a high fashion way. Most of the women are afraid of wearing these kinds of prints because in some brands vision they look cheap. But not at Luisa Beccarias vision. The location was also amazing. It was in the garden of a castle. That really matched to the vision of the brand and made it so Instagram worthy.

Luisa Beccaria

After Luisa Beccaria we went to visit the Fila exhibition. They had their first ever runway show during Milan fashion week. It is always such an amazing thing to be a part of the beginning of a journey for an upcoming brand. We saw looks and scatches from the 1960’s til the latest campaign. It was so amazing to see their scatches and textile samples from several looks. That gave us a little closer look that how designers make their ides to the real life. I think, that Fila has the potential to make their next step to turn into a high street brand. I have also gone to their show to shoot some street style to you. They are coming soon as well.

Fila

After Fila, our last day comes really fast. Milan fashion week is so crazy, even if I am just a small name in the fashion niche. On the last day, I had two presentations and a runway show to attend. The first was Tod’s presentation. They did so coolly as always. Actually, I have had a pair of Tods ‘ back in the days. It was such an honor to see their collection after their runway show. The colors are to die for if you’d like to dress elegant but not on the classiest way that is black and white.

Tod’s

Then, as usual, I was already late from Rhea Costa presentation. It was a live presentation. The girls were wearing Rhea Costa as well. The colors are so young and the textile usage is chic and flowy as well. I highly recommend to visit their site and slide into their shop as well. I really love to support smaller names in the world of fashion. Especially Milan fashion week is such an amazing opportunity to find new names in the fashion world. Rhea is my new fav, who I will follow as a fashion buyer as well. Clearly deserves the highlight!

Milan Fashion week is already over, and it is time to show you my outfits, that I was wearing during the busy Italian days. Instead of that, it is September, the weather was super hot! This is my first fashion week when I had the opportunity to stay for the whole week in Milan and enjoy the craziness. We did just a few shows and presentations because I really don’t want to run each and every day like big bloggers. I just wanted to do it in a relaxed way, when we have time to really explore Milan and make some really good memories.

On the first day, I wore a full white look with 90’s inspired sunglasses. Actually, I was searing for 90’s inspired sunnies for quite a long time, until I have found my perfect match. (I try to link the same or some similar items down the end of the article to make it easier for you to find which items from which store.) As you can see, all of my outfits are so basic and a bit classy. That makes all of them so easy to wear for all personalities. I’ve got some emails from you, to share some really easy outfits that you can wear on your regular days. And some that you struggle with self-confidence and don’t want to be in the center of attention but you’d like to dress a bit different.

I hope, that this post will give you some ideas and you will find your favorite one as well.

At this week I will share so many articles about the fashion week, so please stay tuned, because they will be so cool!

During autumn it is so much fun to wear something knitted. Like a knitted shirt. I have found this elephant bone colored turtleneck kind of shirt last week, while I was running errands. I have already owned this leather jacket from H and M that I have bought years ago. During the seasons it has become my go-to leather jacket style for sure. I love it because I can wear it with many different outfits from elegant to really street style as well.

Because I wanted to shoot with these amazing white flowers, I knew I will go to white for sure. Since last year the trousers are coming back to fashion and I truly love it. This white one is so classic and looks very elegant.  Finally, I added a pair of Adidas Stans Smith to complete the look. To me, a knitted shirt is so much fun and comfortable as well.

Activewear is having a huge trend since 2017, that is still going. Since there are more and newer streetwear designers from really affordable price to high ends, like Off White. This trend is living its comeback because we all love to wear comfortable and practical outfits on our off-duty days. Genuinely I have to tell you that this was my first time wearing an activewear out of my house. It felt weird and good at the same time. And of course, it was easier to just put on a jacket and trousers. Then try to put an outfit together. Streetwear and athleisure have created controversy in the fashion industry because many people believe that these trends are disrupting the traditional luxury fashion business. I believe, that they can work together and can live next to each other as siblings. Sometimes we need some time to get inspired and be able to enjoy our amazing clothes again. It is like a detox day or something similar. To me, it was so beneficial. I had so many ideas because my outfit was not as fashion oriented as usual. To me, as you know, the good pair of shoes are everything. I walk a lot every single day, so it is my must have. This pair has a soft bottom that is beneficial if you walk a lot or just go for a quick run. And you know, that matching items are our biggest friends, because they are the easiest to pair if you had enough of classic fashion days.

Recently, I wore black a lot. Like black became my everyday color. Sometimes it is so much fun to just wear one color head to toe, but if that became an everyday thing, then that is no more fun. Recently I have found that orange suits me and lot of my friends so good. I think, that it looks good on every skin color. Since it’s such a bold color, it is not the one that you can wear from head to toe, but it is amazing to pop up your everyday look. Just look at the pictures below! I would wear a black or white T-shirt, with a black bumbag, that wouldn’t be that interesting.

For me, dressing a bit different is more than just a trend. I really love to play with colors, textures, brands and so on. But I also really love balancing harsh items with classic pieces to create a wearable look that can inspire you to try something new. Like now, I have paired my T-shirt and bumbag with a classic blue pair of jeans, that have to be in your wardrobe somewhere deep inside. Also, a pair of leather shoes works amazingly with classic blue denim.

Recently, I have found this sunglasses that I was looking for such a long time. It might seem familiar to most of you. Yes, it was the style that all of our grandparents have been wearing back in time.

Also, you might know that I have moved my site to a self-hosted service, so I can make you even more site, that you can enjoy as much as I enjoy to create each and every part of it. At every end of an article, I will insert some shoppable items, that I wore on pictures or are similar.
