Theme 36: Holiday Season. Sentiero Shoes - perfect gifts for a Fashionista!

Best online shoes boutique. Sentiero shoes.

As every self-respecting fashionista, I get weak in the knees because of gorgeous shoes. And not because I can't walk on high heels (because I can. At least I think I do?!). Recently I have discovered Sentiero - an online boutique with stunning and original designer shoes. Every pair is either a piece of art or just the most original trendy pair you can find, and I just HAVE to share the news that Sentiero Shoes is currently running up to 50% off sale on some of their bestselling shoes.

This pair is  Nando Muzi Velukid  and it's now on SALE. These shoes are super comfortable and stunning! Shop them  here .

I have already 3 pair of shoes from Sentiero online boutique, and all three are not only beautiful and make at least 5 people a day ask me where did I get that gorgeousness, but are durable and of a great quality. They will make a great luxury gift for a fashionista you know and love (or maybe you should get them for yourself? ;)) There are lot of stunning pairs on sale, so make sure you check Sentiero Shoes asap before the offer ends!

Ballin Garden heels are perfect for classy events, holiday gatherings, and also they will be surprisingly great at the office! They are super comfortable and will add chicness to your work attire. Also, to be honest with you, I used to hate kitten heels, but this pair just completely turned my world upside down, and I think kitten heels have to be in every woman's wardrobe.

You can style them in so many ways! I added these cute polka dot stockings to make my look even more interesting and add that vintage feel.

Theme 32: Boho Chic. Festival Vibes in the City

California Moonrise review. Amazing clothes boho chic

For a while I wanted to get a long cardigan, but couldn't find what I really liked. Luckily I received this absolutely beautiful long knitted crochet cardigan from California Moonrise, and I am embarrassed to say that I wear it pretty much every day with everything now!

Pictures on their website doesn't even give it a justice. The cardigan is very comfy, but stylish and can be as easily worn with shorts and jeans as with a swimsuit or as a warm throw at home. Recently I have been writing in outdoors cafes a lot, and because it is still chilly in New York, I love throwing this cardigan over basic tops and tshirts. 

For this look, shot by my favorite NYC Photographer Dennis, I styled California Moonrise cardigan with white jeans, silky top with lacey details, added some black accessories and of course wore my cowboy hat that I seem to not take off since Coachella :)

Week 29: NYFW Recap. My REVOLVE & Cynthia Rowley Looks

Ulia Ali in Tularose striped 70s dress from Revolve.

MY LOOK 1:

Dress - Tularosa X Revolve | Bag - Christian Louboutin | Hat - PomPom London |
Boots - UGGs (grey and white style here ) | Socks - similar here, but expensive! And $5 red ones I like :) |
Fur Coat - Снежная Королева (similar here. sort of! :) )

I wore this comfy, yet stylish look for Francesca Liberatore NYFW show. The show was beautiful, and I could spot so many famous bloggers and TV personalities, like Dorothy Wang from Rich Kids from Beverly Hills, in the audience. I have made a little collage with my favourite looks from Francesca Liberatore's beautiful FW 2017 show.

I wore this 70s inspired Tularose dress with a white fur jacket, and I can imagine wearing the dress on a beach vacation as well. So easy to style it! Revolve always has the best selection of clothes and brands. If I could shop only in one store for the rest of my life, it would be, without any doubt, Revolve. 

I also wore my new Christian Louboutin pink bag for the first time. It was another gift Ben gave to me when we were in Copenhagen. And Ben was also the one who took all these photographs and the upcoming video!

Another NYFW look that I wore for some meetings and a brunch at my favourite Russian restaurant Mari Vanna NYC. This teal blue dress with embroidered flowers is by Cynthia Rowley, and it is so pretty! Kind of reminds me of my Marie Antoinette Theme Week (click here to see my Marie Antoinette inspired looks!)

Week 28: Scandinavian Adventure. Raden A50 Set review.

Raden luggage review by blogger. Stockholm travels.

Ben and I travel quite often and last year I hopped from one plane to another almost every weekend. It wasn't always for fun and vacations (although we had our fair share of those too!), but often for family matters and work. Regardless of the purpose, it is important for me to have stylish, comfortable and spacious luggage.

As my suitcases (I had this one for years!) got destroyed by our frequent flying schedule, I was excited to get a new Raden A50 luggage set in a sleek, matte black color for our Scandinavian trip. The set includes the A22 Carry-On and the A28 Check suitcase. To be honest I really wanted a pink and white combo (they have so many colors to pick from!), however many colors were sold out before Christmas. Luckily, I checked their website just now and seems like they have everything back in stock!

What is so special about this luggage set? Well, the best feature is that every suitcase has a built-in scale. You simply download the Raden app and lift the handle and an internal scale will determine how heavy your bag is, displaying the weight in the app. Moreover, the app can tell you where your luggage is within 100 feet as there is a Bluetooth receiver inside the case.

There are also two charging ports on both suitcases that allows you to charge your device. My iPhone is always low on battery, so this is quite a handy feature.

Both suitcases are light and roll easily without me having to push or drag them.

Now, of course there are also some down sides that I just have to talk about. Even though the Raden set is gorgeous, and looked so sophisticated out of the box, it got scratched very easily on our first flight. I am not sure if it's an issue with the black cases or the material used. Despite the scratched surface, the content of my bag was 100% protected, which is important when you travel with expensive camera equipment, heeled shoes and makeup all packed together :)

Overall, I do recommend the Raden luggage set if you can ignore a few scratches on the surface. You will appreciate the functionality and protection these suitcases provide.

Week 24: Candy Shop. Cute December Look.

Winter style pompomlondon hat with fur.

One of my personal favourite colours to wear during cold winter months is white (and very light shades of cream!). White and cream pair especially well with a delicious palette of coffee colours, from rich mocha brown to lighter shade of chai latte, and with the "royal baby" colours: duck blue and princess pink. There is something about those colour combos that oozes confidence, old European class and noble chic. 

For this classic winter look I opted for a light pastel blue jacket from DressLilly (Click HERE for discount coupons), complementary super warm wool sweater I ave had for ages, white jeans and my new winter staple, a Pom Pom London hat with cute fur pompom.

As for winter boots, I cheated on my over the knee high heeled boots selection and fell in love with these SUPER warm and EXTREMELY comfy Amber Miles from Hush PuppiesBest thing about them is that they give me those extra cm's in height, and I can wear them for hours every day.
