All Suited Up (LCM SS16 Day2)

There's something about a suit on a woman that is very appealing to me and I too wanted to be that classy lady in a suit one day. Still searching for a perfect black and red two pieces but got this white one at the end of last year and have been dying to wear it ever since. I've actually wore it once before with black jumper and heels but didn't get a hold of the photos from then. When the spring summer LCM came around this time in June, I thought it was the perfect occasion to finally wear it at it's best with only gold details to make it even more elegant.

The Anabel Englund (My Editorial Work)

Hello, hello there! Today, let me show you this mini shoot I did at the end of last year with no one other than Anabel Englund herself! She's an american singer from California, she's performed at major music festivals around the world including one of the most famous ones - Coachela. Shooting with her was a highly stressful experience becasue it was very last minute and we only had an hour but overall it was amazing and here are the results.

I'm a Diva (LCM SS16 Day1)

Hello! It's taken me weeks to finally sit down and go through photos from London Collections: Men but here I am at last with the outfit from the first day. It was actually a really hot day so I quickly got rid of my blazer but kept one of the coolest things I own - this pastel pink shearling stole which, together with the pink sunglasses, apparently made me look like a diva hence the title of this post. I'll be posting the rest of my looks from LCM soon, but all in all it was a great season, loved the collection and the whole atmosphere and had an absolute blast.

Midi Black Dress

I'm not much of a dress kind of girl but I've turned 25 last week and I feel like it's time for me to add
a couple classic numbers to my closet. This dress makes me feel more feminine because of how body-con it is and because of the midi lenght but at the same time it feels really comfortable and easy to wear because it's just a simple jersey dress (I've also got it in a more everyday casual version in this blueish/greyish colour). While I'm not much of a jewellery person either, to make this look more interesting I've added lots of rings, a cuff and a choker.

Fashions Fade, Style is Eternal (GFW 2013 throwback)

Graduate Fashion Week 2015 is coming to an end today, but before I show you what I wore this time (only attended 1 day, catwalk photos are on my instagram @magdarling) I figured it would be a good opportunity for me to show you one of my outfits from GFW two years ago.

 Why would I post such an old outfit now you might ask. Well the main reason is that I'd still wear the same look today exactly how I did it then, which in turn makes me want to talk about the trends
 versus style debate. Yves Saint Laurent once said that "Fashions fade, but style is eternal." and I couldn't agree more. I'm all for new trends and I'm not afraid to try new things but I'd never blindly follow new trends if they weren't something I liked or something that would suit me. I know what I like and what looks good on me and whenever I buy something new I make sure it's something that will fit in with my already existing wardrobe even if it's a bit of an experiment for me. All this means that I wear and love my new clothes pretty much as much as clothes I got 2, 3, 4 or even 5 years ago. All I'm saying is: Enjoy fashion but always stay true to yourself, it will lead to less impulse buying and clothes that you actually wear and not just keep at the back of your closet.
