Paris has been grey in the fall of 2017 and it continues being in the winter of 2018. While this is not news anymore, Parisians try to keep up with their lives and dress up mostly in dark monotonous colours. I remember, last winter, I used to be one of them, mostly for lack of time and ideas, I guess. Unlike last year, this season I dared myself to wear more colours, and in these images you can see very rare (from my side) but beautiful combination of pale pink, burgundy red (both velvet) and dark blue.
Even though this is an outfit post, these pictures were taken during our Cuba trip in the most touristic ambience possible. When in Havana, we, obviously, did a vintage car tour around the city, and after the tour we spent quite a lot of time shooting these images. Usually, the vintage cars for city tours are parked in front of the Hotel Inglaterra. There is a big selection of cars, and the possibility that you'll get crazy choosing the ONE. It's a cliché that girls always take pink cars, and even though I fell in love with every single color, mine had to be pink too (next time I'll take red one). So here is my 1955's pink Pontiac, a very pretty car, which I almost took to Paris.
At this point it's not any secret that flares and ruffles are the trends for this Summer. But I'm gonna talk about ruffles in another blogpost, today we concentrate in flares. In every fashion shop, in every fashion magazine, on every online store, you can see flare sleeve tops, flare dresses, and even flare pants, also called wide leg trousers.
I just had a look on my latest posts, and I see a lot of complaining about the weather. So today I'm not gonna say a word, but I truly hope this is the last outfit in the next 2 months with a trench or any kind of outwear. Now, I have to be honest, I took these pictures almost 1 month ago, but I could wear the same clothes today and it's 8th of June.
I'm truly honoured and excited to present you my new collaboration with Van Cleef & Arpels. A Paris based jewelry brand, famous for its unique designs, that was founded in 1906. Their historical shop in the center of the city, at 22 Place Vendôme, is almost a must visit place if you love high jewelry. When I got a proposition to collaborate with them I felt immensely flattered! They reason why they chose me, was that they wanted the real girls to represent the new collection named Frivole. Obviously, I did not think twice and I accepted. Since then my Cinderella story started.
Last weekend, during one of those rare sunny days in Paris, I decided to have a walk through the city with my boyfriend. Naturally I went to one of my favourite spots in Paris: Ile Saint Louis. I love crossing the bridge from Île de la Cité, finding a sunny place, sitting down along the Seine and contemplating the back view of the magnificent Notre Dame. Usually, I always shoot pictures the way you can see the cathedral behind me, but this time I decided to show you Ile Saint Louis in the background: cream white colour old houses, where you can find some really beautiful apartments, very old shops and some restaurants.
