The Difference Between Looking for Inspiration and Stealing It

looking for inspiration

I can’t remember if I’ve told you this story before. But when I decided to do my Master’s Degree, in Communication Design, my background was marketing and advertising. Meaning, I only hadΒ one or two design courses. When I started classes, back in September 2009, I found out all my classmates were from a design background. This meant I had to work 10 times harder to get to their level. Throughout...

Old New York

There’s something quite poetic and movie-esc about some corners of New York, specifically Manhattan. I met Lydia a few weeks ago and we shot this look on a particular street I’ve never been but fell completely in love with. The whole vibe felt pretty old New York, very romantic and in line with my outfit (also seen here), which could rapidly become very feminine with the pleated skirt and pastel...

NYFW Review – February 2016

The most important thing to know about New York Fashion Week is how everything is shifting. Designers, clothes, seasons, combinations and clearly there are no paradigms and all is being questioned. From how to put on fashion shows (take Kanye West and DVF), to the relevance of season’s. Michael Kors had sweaters for night, flowers in sequins, Calvin Klein went for the bold animal prints and sleek silhouettes, Marc Jacobs...

Valentine’s Day Gifts – for him

Calvin Klein Boxer Briefs, Club Monaco Slim Fit Shirt, Timex Tweed Watch Box Set, Zara Fringed Scarf and Knitted Bow Tie, Herschel Supply Co. Weekender Duffle Bag, Fred Perry Umpire Suede Sneakers.

When I want to be on the safe side, clothes are...

Better Together

There are so many beauty products out there that can be overwhelming choosing what works best for us. Whether you love to try new things or always stick to the same formulas, basically every woman knows what she like and doesn’t. I’ve come a long way from the days I wore exclusively Nivea products but, after a few years sticking to the same thing, my skin started to react aversively....

Winter Street Style

I love browsing through my Pinterest and looking at street style images taken by some of the most influential photographers of today. It’s always a great source of inspiration and I always get excited around fashion week time, which is when everyone steps up their game and try to set the next season’s trends. While winter can be a tough time to dress up it’s when people get the creative...

Snow Gear

Canada Goose Coat (similar here), Banana Republic Sweater, Levi’s 711 Skinny Jeans, Ted Baker Studded Boots, BDG Beanie and Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ Lipstick. The day after Jonas was amazing and I was astonished by the amount of snow that flooded the streets of New York. Me and M decided to go to Manhattan the next day, not only to see the catastrophe, but to witness a white, yet slightly dirty, Manhattan. Of...
