Back in September. London Fashion Weekend 2013

We all know that London Fashion Week is a massive, highly important fashion event not only for the British fashion industry, but for the whole fashion world. Fashion week is always for professionals and tends to be very exclusive.
Here, in London, Fashion Week is followed by London Fashion Weekend. This "Fashion Holiday" is affordable and accessible for the public. You can buy a ticket to attend a catwalk show of a brand or a designer, take part in workshops and to attend talks.
Today, I am recalling my LFWeekend 2013. I attended Julien MacDonald show. He presented a series of gorgeous dresses. I also met Hilary Alexander, who told about her work on photo shoots. She also shared some amusing stories from the sets and gave advice on how to find yourself in fashion journalism and glossy magazines. Hilary Alexander is a huge inspiration for me. She is so real and down-to-earth. She just enjoys her job that she does amazingly.

I was dying to wear my white Converse again. I missed them so much! And that is why I decided to dedicate this post to them.
Quite simple spring look: white high Converse, trench - Zara, unknown shirt with stripes and Eiffel Tower, Jeans- Forever 21, Ray-Ban Polaroid Aviators, earrings-wings and bag is Alexander Wang.

DIY Big Ben on my Cup

About a month ago I bought this Starbucks Create-Your-Own Scratch Tumbler. Originally, it is black. I couldn`t find time for decorating it so I thought it would be fine if I leave it like that. It looked classy.
Once, being in a bookshop I saw an engraving set in the kids children. Engraving is a special technique: you have a preprinted board and a special tool with the help of which you scratch it. Making certain strokes you reveal underlayer (in my case it was a silver foil).
The task was to scratch the board all  way through and to give some silver shining to London Parliament. But accomplishing this task I thought- what am I going to do with that? And here was a moment of glory for my tumbler! I just put the paper in it. It`s still classy, black and silver, but it reflects my personal style and my love for London.
