Paris Haute Couture was just like a live fairy tale! The streets breathed and screamed of style, class and chic, paparazzi were hungry for that perfect catwalk shot or streetstyle shot, the city was shining bright and light, and the Tour Eiffel stood tall and firm whilst the city was trembling with style! It was all and more than I imagined, and I was lucky to see a few shows, and party in one of the most exclusive events of the week (that will be the next post). Here are a few shots of my favourite pieces that I managed to snap with my iPhone (sorry didn’t want to run around with my camera) at Ulyana Sergeenko’s show, and I fell in love with each one of her derrame pieces, as I am sure you will do as well!
Those of you who follow me on Instagram, know about my little getaway to Paris to experience for the first time Haute Couture fashion week! But it wasn’t only my first time at Haute Couture, it was also my hubby’s first time in Paris, so that made it twice as special. Our trip was filled with amazing moments, sharing fabulous times with friends, making new ones, seeing beauty in every corner and soaking in as much creativity and beauty as we could. It began on the right track, when Blacklane sent us their classiest black Benz to drive us to the Barcelona airport in style! That definitely changed our experience of traveling at 6am, after a sleepless night, not having to worry about carrying our bags, driving or parking, we loved every moment in that comfy and luxurious car, I mean who wouldn’t want to travel like that right? Which is why we definitely need to thank Blacklane for helping our trip start in the most fabulous way, here are a few pics and as you can see my look was just as comfy and I like to think quite on style. Hope you enjoy it, and if you are planning a trip soon, and need a ride you know where to get one. Stay tuned for Paris Haute Couture in my next posts! Have a fantastic week!
When it rains in Barcelona the city feels chaotic, everyone suddenly takes out their cars so traffic is unbearable, and every café gets crowded, especially on a summer afternoon when it’s drizzling and not quite raining. So as you can imagine I am one of those people you will find in a terraza sipping on a cappuccino on a summer rainy afternoon. One of my favourite places to do so is Turo Café which is a 10 minute walk distance from my appartment, and on this particular rainy afternoon a few days ago I was wearing my new wedges, which were slippery so I had to stop and wait for the rain to stop, before I headed to pick up my nieces for the long awaited Ariana Grande concert! And if you are wondering YES I felt absolutely like a granny around all the teenage girls, and my 8 and 6 year old nieces, but I loved every moment, they were so excited!
Lately I have been hearing the same remarks from close friends, and that is that my wardrobe now consists uniquely of black garments, and it is very true indeed! But what better way to style myself at the moment? I am getting used to a new body, after the new body I had with pregnancy! I am not one of the many lucky women I know that their bodies did not change much during or after pregnancy, and quite honestly I have always been a fan of black and right now even more than ever! But one must listen to close friends and loved ones, and dear friends I have listened, which is why my next post will definitely be a bit more colorful as I am in sunny Barcelona. I hope you enjoy this look I wore a few days ago, before headed to a dinner with a friend in the most charming neighbourhood of Barcelona, El Borne. This area of the city guards so many beautiful memories, such as the beginning of my relationship with my husband, and I get so nostalgic walking around the streets of El Borne…
Don’t we all love to rediscover our city? I know I do, which is why I absolutely love joining forces with other creative outlets and creating fun collaborations, my latest one was with Barcelona Winebar, which is my favourite restaurant in DC. Whenever I am in DC it is the closest I feel to home, I always choose to wine and dine there when out with my girlfriends or for a romantic night out with the hubby. I love their food, their cavas, and the ambience, all of it just top notch and truly embodies Barcelona to it’s fullest. So we decided I would do la turista in Barcelona, while doing a take over on their Instagram account, which meant me going to some of my loved spots in Barcelona, and I say some because there are so many that it would be impossible to pick all of them in just one takeover. So here is my little #HayaTakesBarcelona!
