So last weekend Gabi came over and we had that amazing girly weekend. We had so much fun, I am so grateful for friend like her!
Obviously, the first day we went to Oxford street do so some necessary shopping, visit Primark (yes, I am using expression “visit” together with Primark. Honestly, who spend in that zoo less than 2 hrs!:D ) and just walk around.

I found just by accident this lovely store called “& other stories“. And fell in love!
Do you know this brand? Basically it is under the H&M group, with designs from Stockholm and Paris (honestly, lately French fashion got me so much! And Swedish bloggers.. well you know those famous bloggers from Stockholm!). This dangerous combination of French chic originality and Swedish style cannot make anything wrong.  The store I went in is on Oxford street, but they have more stores around London, just check their website.

Honestly, those from you, who are constantly on Instagram (like me) searching for outfit inspiration and seeing all these pretty trendy stuff, will love this store! It is exactly the thing I was looking for for ages. I don’t know where to start – they have exactly the trendy pieces for very affordable prices, the material quality is… I would say comparable to some high end brands and the colours are beautiful. Everything at & other stories starting by underwear ending up by accessories and cosmetic products. I was especially targeting on few pieces on my wish list – high waisted trousers and some tops.
I definitely recommend to visit the store as you might regret ordering online – at least you can really see the amazing quality plus I think at the store they have way more things. I must say even I regret I ordered bunch of stuff online! Hm, at least I didn’t have money left to go crazy at the store:) Check their knitwear and denim collection for sure. They are also on spot with the khaki colour which is so trendy now! Worth mentioning is also the cosmetic section where I found lots of body lotions smelling like sweets and most amazing body scrubs.
Once I will receive my stuff you can be sure to see it here on blog in outfits!

Have a fab evening guys and happy shopping :P

And what about the leggings?

So what is the deal with leggings? Is that one big no no or is that allowed, for those very casual occasions, for weekend wear?
Apparently this trend hasn’t faded yet – recently seen on Gigi Hadid walking around NY in very comfortable looking outfit – cropped hoodie, grey pair of leggings and no-make up perfect skin. I personally love them on Kardashians – either you love them or hate them, they have style and know how to wear every single piece of clothes. But what you could spotted on these girls is the most important know-how for leggings: Material, material, material. They don’t do smaller sizes where you can see your underwear print or any transparency. And no, you don’t have to go crazy with money, it just needs patience and lots of trying to find the best pick for you. I personally recommend Asos, Nike, H&M or Joseph. First three brands are more casual and you can find there easier fabrics and more fun styles. Joseph is doing amazing gabardine leggings – I have mine for a year now and cannot complain at all! Also on Asos you can get some for workwear as well – not whether treat Asos as high street or high end fashion retail as they have amazing stuff sometimes.

By years now I also love leather look leggings – for me the best one are from Calzedonia. I recently tried Forever 21 or Asos, but they were too thin or my (no)bum looked weird..:)
It is also all about details – what are you going to pair them with, accessories and details on leggings itself.

So what is your final opinion, yay or nay for leggings?
Here I went for very sporty combination – bottom from Nike with Primark crop top and my super comfortable Nike Huarache trainers.

What happened last week I/II

what happened last week

Okay, January is over. How you are you guys keeping with your New Years resolutions? So far for me, everything is going well, I am just a bit worried how I will manage to do my blog together with school and work and gym. I am getting more and more excited as my induction is getting closer, yayy!

Last week my best friend Gabi came over to London and we had amazing time together.. i really needed something like this, just get drunk, have fun and talk with her! Thank you Gabi for being here:))

Today is also my second day on low-carb diet. Understand, by meaning “diet” I mean lifestyle, not trying to do some short term non sense diet. I have to say I feel amazing, a bit light headed though:D. But it should be fine during few days. I am doing a little blog post about it, will publish next week probably!

I also have to recommend you again the Dishoom restaurant. On Wednesday I went there with my friend Katka and the food is amazing! I was really about to stay with grilled lamb choice, but the smell of the cheddar Naan bread was too tempting. Poor will power!

I think that would be it, what happened last week and what I was up to. How are you guys?

PS: I was just thinking, am I going to be the oldest one at the fashion course I am going to study? :D Or is more people in my age starting their career by studying etc?

Today is simpler than usual

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to create outfit just in black colours – sometimes I am in a mood for that (when I eat too much food or simply don’t feel like hundred percent in my body). But I love the effect it has got on your silhouette – it looks immediately slimmer, very elegant and together with high heels very chic. I picked these black chunky boots from H&M which I got on sale. Honestly, H&M for sale items, shoes especially, is amazing. I am very happy with the result – oversized funnel neck jumper from the same brand like shoes, high waisted jeans from Levis and.. that’s it! Today I keep it even simpler than usual! What do you think about it? What is your favourite color for being in comfort zone? :)

I was also curious if some of you knows how to make jeans smaller. I recently lost some weight over my hips and legs and my slim jeans are not slim anymore. Ohh, how lazy am I to open the jeans and make them smaller! :P Any tips how to do it least painfully? Also which strenght of the needles would you recommend for sewing denim? Many thanks guys!

What happened last week I/I

 

last week

Hey guys!
So I’ve decided that Monday will be kind of random post about what happened last week, what caught my eye and stuff like this. And ever since I am obsessed with fashion, it might be mostly just never ending wish lists :)

First exciting information: I’ve been accepted for the L4 course of buying and merchandising at Fashion Retail Academy. I am so excited! It will be amazing be back at school, learn new things and open up new career paths. Also meet many interesting people and create important contacts. To be honest, I was about to write “and try to have best grades from whole class” but since high school I’ve learned that.. it is simply stupid. The amazing grades didn’t get me anywhere to be honest, everything is about your personality, experience and skills!
Back to my school – I am starting in the end of February!:) Anybody else is going to study there?

Yesterday Daniil told me about my birthday present. We are going to Monza, to see F1 race!!! I’ve never been the kind of person doing bucket lists, but if I was, this would be No.1!!! I am very excited. Also was just thinking, how amazing Daniil is, that he is arranging all the time these surprises..
Obviously we are going to make road trip from it to see all the cities and eat lots of amazing (paleo) food. But I might have pizza if will have to. (This is lie, I will want to). Especially, I cannot wait to see the very beautiful Tuscany!

We also started organising our holidays plans but have to wait how it will be with my school and everything. So far we know we want to go to Paris, Rio De Janeiro, New York for shopping weekend, Maldives and Island. And much more, but have to really work on proper schedule:)

I hope that this month is so far good for you as well and all of you are working on the goals you’ve set for yourself! (And tell me about them, I am curious!)

Lots of love xx Lucie
