Week 26: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. Winter Wonderland in Laduree.

Christmas Tree at Laduree Soho in New York City. Blogger Ulia Ali

Laduree in Soho, NYC has some of the coziest Christmas decorations in the city. I love going there wearing a warm sweater to drink Marie Antoinette tea and to read a book (I just started The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton).

Today's look is one of my favourite of the season, and I am so excited to share it with you. I am wearing a super warm, grey sweater from Shein that looks perfect with my arctic blue, fox fur vest bought in Baku, Azerbaijan in Снежная Королева. I also can't stop wearing white jeans as they make every outfit look so fresh. The cherry on top of my marshmallow babe look (that's what Ben calls it!) is my grey Louis Vuitton bag.

Week 22: Witches of Manhattan. Bells, the Blog & the Brooklyn Bridge.

Bell Sleeve Dress from Nasty Gal.

What the Blog is About?

**

While I often want to share my views on current events happening in the world, I try to stick to writing about culture, fashion and books. I don't like offending people and hurting their feelings, and I also don't think certain views on politics, finances, educational system etc. should be shared publicly if they are not researched properly. Nowadays we are all content creators, and I refuse to add to this maddening storm of misleading information as you never know who is reading it and who it is going to affect.

I believe in a proverb "Let the cobbler stick to his last". It comes from an ancient story about a shoemaker who criticizes a work by a Greek painter named Apelles, saying that the shoe in the picture wasn't portrayed correctly. The next day, the shoemaker, quite proud at seeing the former error corrected, thanks to his advice, begins to criticize the leg; upon which Apelles, full of indignation, pops his head out, and reminds him that a shoemaker should give no opinion beyond the shoes.

Therefore, I promise that on Pastiche.today you will only see properly researched information about historical persons and cultural events, fashion styles I really wear and like, recommendations on books I actually read and films I have watched. I promise not to feed you any information to sell you something or write reviews on places I have never been at for the sake of having it on my blog.

My goal is to create this wonderful online place for you where every Theme Week you can immerse yourself into a new fantasy and get interested and excited about a new subject. I want people to come back here and to my social media to find inspiration not only for their wardrobes and reading lists, but for their everyday lives!

As you have noticed, sometimes I do not upload all the content for one Theme within 7 days, and I often update the lists, links and themed shops many days after they are published. The reason for that is that I don't want to create quick content; that is why you won't see me praising that ugly Kenzo H&M collection or wearing other fast fashion trends. I want people to come back to different posts and Themed Weeks when they feel they are interested in the topic and find all the necessary information even months after it was created!

Am I talking off-topic too much today? :) Let me return to our Witches of Manhattan Week. For my last witchy look I decided to wear this extremely sexy, black romper with bell sleeves. Bell sleeves are such a classic attribute of any "witch outfit," that I feel that you don't even have to add anything else to make your dress or romper look more magic-infused. However, the revealing lace-up front of my romper from NastyGal (similar here) is an additional dramatic detail.

At the end of this post I linked to a few of my favourite bell sleeve dresses, rompers and tops for you to shop. Go for black or deep red for the ultimate evil sorceress look, or play with the lighter colours and floral prints to feel like a Medieval princess who appeared in the 21st century!

Week 19: Hawaii. Aloha, Beaches! Zaful Swimwear Review.

Zaful swimsuit review. White lace one-piece. Aloha Beaches in Hawaii!

Dear readers, I apologise for not updating Pastiche.Today this past week. I am currently on my vacation the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii and I am predictably busy :)

I will try to keep you updated on Instagram, but I am very excited to finally share my swimwear photoshoots and travel tips on the blog. Ben is a really wonderful and supporting man and even though he doesn't always enjoy taking pictures, he helped out because he knows how important Pastiche.today is to me. I have also been lucky to shoot with Marcus Bloss and I cannot wait to show you what we have created together. So while everyone else is writing about Fashion Week, I am going to show you some awesome beach photographs and write a unique Kauai Travel Guide!

ZAFUL SWIMWEAR:

Today I am showing you my photographs in this absolutely stunning swimsuit from ZAFUL. This one-piece is very intricate and beautiful, and is so perfect for honeymooning. I have been so impressed by the quality of Zaful items and their wide range of clothes and swimwear that I just have to share a little list of my favourites from the shop at the end of this post (along with coupon codes!). Girls, I really do highly recommend this online store!

Week 17: Rita Hayworth is a Babe. My Femme Fatale Look.

Walter Baker beaded dress. Fashion blogger in New York. 

Inspired by Rita Hayworth's style (see here) and bold 40s makeup, I have created this modern look with a very glamorous Old Hollywood feel. I am wearing a Walter Baker beaded dress with an extremely sexy open back, and put on my ALL TIME FAVOURITE Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid matte lipstick in Sad Girl. This lipstick stays on the whole day and the colour is just pure burgundy perfection.

P.S. If you don't own a pair of Slithur heels by Steve Madden, get it now! It is the most comfortable pair of heels I ever had. I walked 6(!) hours on them that day. I give up on my Pigalles after just 30 minutes :)
