We are totally under the spell of university and researching full speed like 24/7 (In your dreams, Madara! Actually like 6/7 but still working quite a great deal!) And except for my and Ance's throw back thursdays (ok... maybe sundays where we put on some music we used to listen as a teenagers - hello, The All American Rejects. Yes, it is totally on hahaha and do some embarrassing singalong) we work a lot. And even for those moments of pure laziness we try to consume some knowledge by watching tons of online discussions and talks or treat ourselves with some fashion films.
Speaking of which here are few videos if you haven't seen them already:
For all the Philophiles ... oh you know I am talking about you, you little Celine lovers!
As well as for those who are totally into being more "personal" with Miu Miu.
Or for the moments when we get much more serious and really question our choices that we make with every purchase.
And of course in the photo is Alexa - with whom I will be working a lot this term. So hopefully you will see some cool results soon!
This struck us three weeks ago when endlessly scrolling through instagram (ahhh yes, I know it's an addiction!!! Stop it, stop it... I, seriously, tell it to myself every day. Hahahaaa) we came across Katrina's impossible adventures in Dover and the super cool video she did. After realising that Dover isn't some far far away Kingdom but rather a city situated only 2 hours ride from London. We were like: OK... Hey there! Let's GO!
Frankly it wasn't really about the city but about the white cliffs that surround it's shore. I mean, it felt like something unreal! Like are we really in England unreal! Luckily, we weren't the only ones in doubt as our phone reception would suggest France as our location. Should I maybe say Bonjour?
You don't have to ask us twice if something involves loads of hiking up and down. But even we weren't as adventurous as some grandmas'n'grandpas that we saw jumping across the fence. I am not kidding! But I guess: Once a badass, always a badass!
And then of course after a long walk that I managed to capture probably step by step (hello, photo addition!!!) we reached lighthouse inside which we found the most beautiful tea room. Definitely was worth the walk!
It was one of those warm and sunny autumn afternoons and while strolling through the calm streets of Hampstead with Christine she suddenly jumped like remembering the most important thing. "I brought you something!" she told me. After few-second-search through her bag she pulled out a red leaf. "It fell on my head this morning and I thought of you." she said. Knowing my great affection for colourful autumn this made me smile like a little kid again. Just how little I need to be purely happy.
And I know, you know that I have an issue with the brown autumn here in London. I might sound like a five-year-old but I need those colourful leaves in my life. Nevertheless, it seems like mother nature has forgotten to gift the trees around here with that deep red and sunshine yellow pigment. So there you go - this is like my ultra weird obsession of finding something colourful in these fields of brrrooowwwnn!
But with an utter persistence I did stumble upon possibly the only vivid tree around here. Just imagine the view if everything would look like this. Like in a wonderland!
Have you heard? All the universe has moved to Milan taking along the models, make-up artists, photographers and all the super stylish crowd. But all I think is: Why am I still here? Because I might not speak Moschino but I definitely can speak some Italiano! Ahhh Milano, ti amo molto! But in the meantime I will unapologetically greet everyone with a very sunny Ciao, Bella!, browse through Prada's newest masterpiece and gush: Bravo, BRAVO!!! with every look!And maybe, just maybe, loose my northern calmness and cause some real Italian scene. You know just for the sake of an Italian spirit! Hahahaaa!
Fashion Week is a crazy time full of fancy dressed people and busy schedules. It is that time of a year when a fear of wasting a great outfit for an insignificant day completely vanishes! It is the time you go all in. You might say those are just clothes but better don’t do it because you could get escorted to the never ever land and NEVER EVER come back. Boo! Scared you?
But for the starters just watch this video to realise that #1, yes, sometimes it is a “bit" ridiculous! That #2 never ever talk to people with camera if you don’t know what you are talking about. Like I would say stupid things in front of a camera even if I know what I am talking about! haahaa And #3 that people like to pretend that they know more then they do - A LOT!!!
OK so where was I? Oh yes, staying sane.
First of all, better don't wear heels. I mean you can if you want (and if you have a driver and if you are Carine Roitfeld or if you like challenges) but while flats are like the coolest footwear choice at the moment, I say, use it!
Please, don’t tell me that I sound like your Mom but eat your breakfast. Or else you will binge on popcorn, “beauty drink” (really... is anyone suggesting that fashion people are in need for a beauty drink?!?! Ouch!), coconut water (yuk!!), dried fruit (yummy!!) and some Asian food (kinda taking it to the next level this season.) But we talked about it some while ago already!!
And if this doesn’t convince you then better imagine how you will sound after a few cocktails on an empty stomach at yet another presentation. “Howw wazz Burbz?! I #looooooved Burbzzzz!!! Lol, lol, lol, lol, lol!!!” while stumbling on you high heels.
And for a reality check read some actual news. It is super easy to get carried away with ThePlanet Fashion but there are more things happening than just that incredible The Row collection we all want to live in. I mean a good reminder that will let you not to sweat the small stuff or any stressful situations during FW!
But all in all Fashion Week is like super long celebrations and celebration just sounds like a best plan EVER!
