Vintage Lookbook

Hello my loves, I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous time with your families around a delicious home cooked meal. Last night we had such a wonderfull surpise when snow starts to fall, here in UK. Snow just makes everything so magical, doesn’t it? ❄️❄️
Another year just ending,  it makes me feel that every year passes faster and faster. But the way time falls away like this, so constantly, so urgently, makes it all the more precious.
Thank you for all in 2014 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here is the lookbook I shooted for Tiwi wardrobe Vintage few weeks ago. This looks we put together are completely different to my usual everyday style but I really enjoy putting it together. We shoot with Kinga and Tiwi at Leeds College of art studio and well it was a good fun :)

Pink Bomber

Hello Loves! I’m so sorry that I left the blog for so long these past days ! You might have seen it on my Instagram but it’s now a proper bad December weather in Leeds and it’s been weeks since the rain has started to ruin all my plans, and i’m so fed up with this ! The kind of heavy and grey weather that turns the city into a gloomy swamp.. But instead of mourning over a Brit weather, lets focus on positives. The festive season begins, all the streets are decorated with Christmas lights and I can finally buy my favourite xmas verion of Gingerbread latte in Starbuck which is my absolute favourite! And The German Market is now on in Leeds. I love visiting this place soaking up the festive atmosphere; hand crafted toys, tree decorations, candles, aromas of spiced mulled wine, gingerbread and sausage fill the air well it's just an excuse to eat a load of yummy food!

่Šฑใ‚ˆใ‚Šใ ใ‚“ใ”

I have the pleasure of sharing with you this awesome Make up inspiration look with Galaxy blue lips :)
Cat invited me and Jodie (the make up artist) for this shoot in Leeds College of art. I really enjoyed this experience and the photos may be displayed at Louis Vuitton store event in Leeds, which is pretty awesome fact.  The Topic of this photoshoot was "I am the luxury" I wore the lace black dress from Oasap and we also place few beautiful layers of lace fabric with some gold accent. We shoot this look with central lighting to create an appropriate ambience. Anyway speaking abou Luxury, for me personally is not about expensive clothes and designer bags. What I appreciate the most. The no frills and no fuss situations where I find myself in flats in a silky cozy and comfortable shirt with some sort of sweets involved and with a hot coffee in hand.

Hello my Loves! Getting in the mood for Halloween today! Can not wait for my fancy night out this Evening.
I have done this photoshoot with James at Yorkshire Park This is another shoot inspired by the theme of Alice in wonderland. I can guess I never going to be too old to stop loving this book. It was a real pleasure to spend some time there, get inspired by this big sculptures and artistic work from over the world. This is the place where nature and history inspire each other. The Fall has brought its colours with and the trees are all looking beautifully yellow and red all over this place.  This place is magic…

I’ll write to you. A super-long letter, like in an old-fashioned novel...

Happy Tuesday sweet pies!  So here we are, recently I team up with Finn fora  photo-shoot at Leeds City Town Hall. Feeling a little romantic during a warm morning. Thie Town Hall is located at the heart of this noisy and very busy city. But when you climb all the stairs up and get there, the atmosphere is changing suddenly into more quiet and peaceful even the wind flows more softly. Like the time  has stop for a moment. 
For someone who strongly believes the location of where your photos are taken is just as important as the clothes you’re wearing it always stresses me out having to find somewhere to shoot my outfits perfectly  For those who read my blog from time to time, knows that I love simple and classic silhouette. lean lines, a beautiful and flattering fit with a feminine flare  and quirkiness is exactly how I would like to dress for the next few years....

Autumn Leaves

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  I’m so inspired by not only the locations  I see, but also the colours of each landscape as well. With the foliage changing from vibrant green to burning orange and shades of brown, I loved this pop of contrast, it gives me optimistic attitude :)

" Art exists because life is not enough. "

Following the quote by Ferreira Gullar " Art exists because life is not enough. " Me and Kamo, (the author of these photos), headed to Manchester Northern Quarter  in order to get that perfect, cool, edgy vibe into the shooting. Northern Quarter ia a centre of alternative and bohemian culture. It is one of these places with artistic soul.with numerous bars and cafes where every corner feels like little art exchibition. The streets are full of unique Vintage shops, and Affleck's Palace- a former department store which has been turned into a multi-storey bazaar for alternative clothing and nick-nacks. There’s so much creativity in the air. I can feel it everywhere and grasp it so easily. I wanted to create a super sleek and chic outfit by mixing this black leather leggins with some more quirky lips tee, big hat, blazer and boots:) It was very rainy and cold day, which makes a bit difficult to shoot in such a harsh weather condition, especially when at the end we get wet from head to toe but well I guees it can't stop the positive vibe so I hope you enjoy the result :)

baby, it’s cold outside !

Did everyone have a good weekend ? I sure hope so. Today’s weather was rather up-and-down. What started off as a lovely sunny Sunday morning, later turned into a grey afternoon and by the time the sun set, it was pouring rain. Luckily, I avoided the rain thanks to always having an umbrella handy. Welcome in England guys, where people have a sixth-sense about the rain (☞๏พŸ∀๏พŸ)☞  weather swing… I wanted to wear a sunny dress today : I can forget about it and take my boots and winter vest out of the closet. v(。-_-。)v

" Black is the queen of colors. "

Oh my gosh. How long has it been!!! It feels to me like I haven’t posted in ages and quite frankly,  but 
I am so happy to finally share with you this wonderful collaboration that Andy and I shot for OASAP.

The dress is made with a beautiful lace and a long sleeve that is very wide, which adds extra Chic to the whole look.
The cut of dress is very elegant and yet really simple.
My style has always been all about elegance, being chic and modern.
I guess I should find a way to interpret the more casual dress up code and go a bit further in this direction. New challenge!

whoooa, at the top of Leeds almcliffes ^.^

Forget everything and just dream. Say it before you run out of time. 
Say it before it’s too late. Say what you’re feeling. Waiting is a mistake.

Once upon a time:

This is another shoot where I've woke up very early. I like the morning sun. There is nothing prettier than a city at 5 AM with its empty streets and cold wind…  Sometimes I realize that the simplest of outfits works, the little black dress always works for me very well with black shoes and a hat for me is just the essence of a classic style. 

Spofforth Castle comprises the ruins of a hall range and is all that remains from a fortified house. Spofforth Castle was originally an 11th century fortified manor house, founded by William de Percy. The place were ruined during the English Civil War in the mid of 17th century and if you ever find yourself there, somewhere on the wall there are marks imparted from the gun bullet...

A Tale of the old dress

Believe me or not, but the dress I wore for this post is around 40 years old. Yes 40 years old! 
My grandad bought it to my gandma in Chicago as a present, while he was there visiting his family ;) 
Later on my mummy wore this dress  for few occassions and now is my turn, haha, what i really appreciate about the past is that the clothes were made with love and passion, the quality was uncompromising factor and people take care so much more about their clothes compare to nowadays. Seriously how many clothes now will survive and look almost like a new for 40 years? Most people shop and drop and change their closet every seasson. Maybe this is good, cos it helps to boost the economy, but personaly I tend to keep my clothes hanging in my wordrobe for ages and I buying less but try to pick a better quality. Tell me what is your shopping habits?

Newland Estate lies in the valley of the River Calder between Alfofts and Stanley Ferry, and is one of the very few estates in the area that can be traced back through documents which have survived and span 900 years.  Pretty Awesome;)  Me and  Keith (The Photographer;)) went there for photoshoot to explore a bit more about this abandoned place. It is so easy to get lost!  When I was younger this area was perfect to play hide and seek game haha ^.^

Hello, Today a very short post. I accidentally was invited to help my friend with her 1st year art uni  photography assigment, which was base on preaparing a couple Avant Garde Portraits which in my case shows quite simple facial expressions. The make up is quite unusual, something i won't wear for every day basics, hope you like them:)

We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. 
We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. 
We are all helpless. It just depends on the day...

Alice in wonderland

“Alice came to a fork in the road. 'Which road do I take?' she asked.
'Where do you want to go?' responded the Cheshire Cat.
'I don't know,' Alice answered.
'Then,' said the Cat, 'it doesn't matter.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I not sure why, but when I saw the 'ready to go' pictures from this photoshoot, I already started to think about Alice in Wonderland story. I didn't plan to shoot this kind of inspired look. Maybe, I get this sort of feeling  because of the oversized plants around me in this lovely garden- park in Manchester. Believe me or not, but the lake was just behind me on the right side;)

Reality is merely an illusion ...

Happy monday people!

My new post was shoot at Harrogate a lovely town with the best Tea House called Bettys :)
My and my Chinese friend Paul Xandu shoot at the Local Park in Harrogate at early morning, to avoid to many tourists, and the early morning light gives the photos more nostalgic feeling.

I love Vintage butiques . The blouse from today post i one of my newest shopping Trophy (●´่‰ธ`)
Vintage clothings makes me feel special and unique. Perhaps it is not something that is not produced in massive quantity like many of the mass market clothing. Secondly, it is a piece with unknown history.
I really like to spend my leisure time shopping at Leeds, plenty of good stores and places to go. Recently i found Pop Up Boutique where I bought this amazing collared blouse from 1970.  I decide to pair is with black trousers and black heels and a big hat to make it a bit more quirky ;)

Blue dress

If you repeat something over and over again it loses its meaning; You watch the sunset too often it just becomes 6 pm, you make the same mistake over and over you stop calling it a mistake. If you just wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up one day you’ll forget why...

Sporty Chic

I am finding it a little hard to spend any time on the internet and social media now, maybe its just exactly what I needed , sometimes a break is good idea... 
I decide to do a one post at least every week, so this makes me a bit more busy, but I've some cool projects sorted out but also I've get into awesome Merchandising  internship which gets my life into new adventure, so excited and nervous at once! ☆*・゜๏พŸ・*\(^O^)/*・゜๏พŸ・*☆

OK! Let's talk about the today outfit. I love wearing loose fit, baggy tees, and this one from Top Shop Made in LA collection is just my Favourite. Finally time for bare legs and shorts as weather gets more sunny and I cant even begin to explain how happy that makes me, I really don’t like wearing tights at all, but I don’t have a choice during winter time really....

Neko Mimi

Well hello folks!
Brand new day, brand new outfit. I love how it gets warmer day by day, makes me want to wear summery outfits all the time.Today Blog title may sound very quirky,but it's mean "Cat Ears", as from Japanese Neko means cat and Mimi mean ears, which relates to the  headband I wore. I fell in love with this gorgeous dress, which has a very popular cat print, which makes me feel completely like a "cat mummy".

Working on that  set was quite challenging and fun at the same time as me and Tom shot these pictures when it was still super cold outside, and it was one of those looks where you just can’t wear tights! But hey, it was so worth it and I had fun all the way through.

Windy day

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold; when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade
I use my hair as a mask, as a shield. I hide behind it and it’s what keeps me me. 
Some people make fun of me for it, but I don’t know who those some people are, 
so I don’t care.....

Today I am excited to share with you my first Spring Colour look.
That day luckily, the sun showed up, melting some bits of ice here and there, creating such a perfect atmosphere for an urban photoshoot:)  I have decided to go for a bright casual outfit, comfortable and warm enough for a full day in Leeds, doing all the things that I love the most : shopping and eating at my favourite places in leeds and reading Love Magazine!! YAY!
I went for a retro inspired look with this Crazy Jacket  that I got at River Island S/S14, matched with statement necklace and green cigarettes and grey merino wool jumper both from Uniqlo.
This Jacket it’s definitely one of my favorite pieces ever....

 Our culture's obsession with vintage objects has rendered us unable to separate history from nostalgia.
People want heart. They want a chaser of emotion with their aesthetics.
 I'm a real Londoner. We have very grey weather in London, and I think it encourages a very eclectic and crazy fashion sense.
I mix high-street stuff with more high-end fashion, and I love vintage.
