What’s more glamorous yet casual than Parisian nonchalance? Probably nothing. The messy hair, the black turtleneck and the camel coat – all are plans of what I’d wear if I visited Paris. Hopefully one day soon.
These images turned out to be unbelievably raw, looking at them almost feels like an outer body experience. Maybe it’s because I am wearing a smaller number of embellishments than usual, or maybe it’s because this minimal style brings me to the centre of the stage rather than the outfit. It’s a strange place, I haven’t been here before.

Goodness, that necklace looks heavy – is what you are probably saying to yourself. And you are right, it is. I am pretty sure I have developed extra strong neck muscles from all the jewellery I have worn throughout the years. I’d champion any neck-heavy-lifting tournament at this point. Let me know if are aware of any.
This particular neck adornment is by Mirina Collections. If you are into Bedouin inspired pieces, this should be on your go-to list. Their prices are quite reasonable for the items offered – the weight is really and truly no joke.
The stunning surroundings of Hampton Court added to the very John Snow vibe of this shoot. This wasn’t initially planned, but you know… Winter is coming.

Ok people – it’s party season! Amidst of all the dresses, racks of dresses and more dresses, I looked at my MacBook (online shopping addict, I am) and thought: please, not a dress. Just not a dress. Not today, not this year. I was obsessed with the idea of lace flares and a blazer, worn Bianca Jagger style. The lace trousers of my dreams were definitely those by Balmain, who am I kidding – they still are! The ones I ended up getting were by ASOS, which achieved the dream look at a fraction of the price. My chin remained up – those Balmains will be mine one day!
As my look was rather demure yet still remained decadent, it was the lingerie that could make or break this look. Luckily, team Ultimo was there to help! This innovative brand equipped me with a body harness and their latest offering, the Erica bralette – two perfect pieces to add glamour to the entire look. Some of you may remember Ultimo blowing my mind when it came to lingerie, if not you can read about it here. It’s the brand’s subtle touches that made this outfit as cool as it turned out to be. This is why I dedicate this post to team Ultimo, thanks for empowering women around the globe.
In case you were wondering where these pictures were shot – it was at Sushi Samba, an awesome place where Japanese minimalism meets Brazilian pizzazz. And the views? The views were just as stunning with the sun up as they were with it down.
What a phenomenal Christmas party. A huge thanks to team Design Cuts, who I not only love working with, but also simply, love.
