Autumn Sun

Autumn Sun

It was both a sunny & windy day down here in my city today. It took us a while to style my hair which was blown all around me, often covering my eyes and face. Well, I could say I just had one of these ‘bad hair days‘. And believe me, even though it brings a lot of fun during the photoshoot, at the same time it can be very frustrating and annoying.

To help create a casual fall outfit, I used an oversized wool coat that functions as a cover-up. Cover-ups are extremely versatile and an ideal addition to your fall wardrobe. My coat is a unique handmade piece made by my favorite personal tailor and features an oversized collar. I’m always stunned by the tailor’s ability to produce perfectly fitting pieces that meet my individual requirements. As much as I love shopping in the city center, nothing can beat the experience and joy of having something custom made.

In order to create your custom clothing the tailor is going to measure you and help by suggesting a style that would look good on you. They will also discuss with you the best way to incorporate your custom requirements and suggest ideas you never thought of. I worked closely with my tailor to determine the style of my coat and I visited their workshop several times to discuss the progress. It wasn’t a hassle because I did it during the weekend or late afternoons.

This last week I went back to have a discussion on any final adjustments, and just a few days later it was finished and I picked it up. They did the work perfectly. Although I was absolutely delighted with the quality of the coat and service, finding a good tailor that fits you isn’t an easy job.

What I really like about my new oversized wool coat is the unique style that it has. The shoulder-draping collar adds some drama, and the lining is smooth and uses colorful patterns.

The oversized wool coat works together with the monochrome plaid scarf and Calzedonia gray knitted tights, Sisley hobo bag and my Pittarello chamois leather boots. These knitted tights were love at first sight from the moment I saw them in the store’s display. On top of it I’ve added a pair of Chanel earrings, H&M sunnies and a silver ring that looks absolutely fabulous. What do you think? Waiting for your precious comments.

H&M black ankle high heels

H&M Vegan Leather Pointed Toe Boots


Women are constantly searching for new shoes. If paired with the correct outfit and completing it, shoes can definitely give you confidence and enhance your appearance. In today’s post, I would like to share with you my newest fast fashion piece, a pair of pointed-toe boots.

I’ve been guilty of purchasing items because they can go with almost any outfit, from chic to casual. And that’s how these pointed-toe boots ended up in my hands. I just felt that I needed to add them to my wardrobe collection of shoes. Sometimes nothing feels better than a new elegant pair of pointed-toe boots. You can easily combine them with a pair of jeans and a cute top, and you will be ready to go out with your girlfriends. I absolutely love them!

<h2>What is fast fashion?</h2>

One of my primal, well, call it the main idea when I established this blog was to pair high-end clothing with some cheaper fast-fashion pieces. Zara, Mango and H&M are my favorite places to shop. Their local shop displays are regularly updated, and in their online stores you can find new products almost every week. Zara is one of the most prominent fast-fashion brands with stores in more than 95 countries and has been at the forefront of this fashion retail revolution. Immediately after comes H&M, the second-largest multinational clothing retail company. They both offer a fusion of trendy and chic clothing and accessories at affordable prices.

Although I’ve tried to shop in many other fast fashion stores such as ASOS, New Look, River Island and Oysho, I definitely prefer to visit and revisit the Zara and H&M stores. No matter where I go they are always prominent and easy to reach. Fast fashion pieces are usually attempting to the eye, but often offer lower quality items than big, already established high-end brands as for example Bikkembergs, Furla, and The Bridge already presented on my blog.
