The days may not be so bright and balmy—yet the quiet and melancholy that linger around them is fraught with glory. Over everything connected with autumn there lingers some golden spell—some unseen influence that penetrates the soul with its mysterious power.

This was first time in many years I changed my travel destination… Milano instead of Paris. And I must say it was a good choice, because sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and have new challenges. I started planning my trip as soon as the plane tickets were in my pocket. Did you know I am a control freak and a crazy holiday planner?… my family members even call me a travel guide. Well I am fine with that as far as they are happy and enjoying. Continue reading →
School is over and it is time for summer holidays to start taking over our minds, specially if you have kids. I remember, when I was little June was the month to pack my bag and leave the city.

What’s so special about denim?! It’s simple, it’s sexy it’s comfortable and it’s always in fashion. I think I got my first denim jeans when I was 7 and lived with my parents in Germany. They presented me a pair of boyfriend style jeans decorated with patchwork and printed with the beautiful face of Greta Garbo. It’s a pity I threw them out. The second experience was a 70s style jumpsuit, I bought when I was 14, and still have it…I’m sometimes trying it on just to see if I’m still that fit (crazy woman obsession). Third was a pair of thorn Dolce&Gabbana blue jeans my boyfriend presented me and I totally loved it and didn’t take off for 6 months. And fourth was and still is a grey pair of Gucci jeans I didn’t want to buy, but now it’s 6 years I’m wearing them every second day…and I don’t know how will I feel when they will be no more wearable – they are my second skin.

In a month I will be having a glass of champagne in Paris…I am almost sure. Ticket – in my pocket. Plan – no plan! Work – yes please! Will be great to meet all the wonderful kids brands on Playtime Paris and present my second capsule (this time for teenagers) in cooperation with unique and progressive Paade Mode.
Today I somehow felt nostalgic and scrolled through Pinterest looking for some inspiration. In pictures it’s all about Paris mood…
