Truth to be told

Truth to be told. I have been lazy.  Not intentionally, but  still lazy with my dear blog. I had to work, work, work  and not much time to have fun. I also moved to a new house which took what was left from the little time I had.  I am done with New Year resolutions […]

Hats, hats, hats

New Yorks streets Hats everywhere

Club to Catwalk…

It is known that fashion repeats itself. At least, this is what fashion students are told. Therefore, it is important to do your homework (meaning you have to research the old as well as keeping an eye on the new). Here is a perfect excuse to do some research : V&A has put together a […]

It’s been so long…

It’s  not been easy. The past year. For a very long time I felt  lost.  Let alone good living, being  able to smile was not easy so I stopped writing, I stopped almost everything. Yet, here I am now.  Again. Feeling much better. Restarting some good old habits like this small but fulfilling blog.  I […]
