I CAN’T LET GO OF MY SKINNY JEANS
According to google bell bottom jeans aka flare jeans and biker jeans are the new black. What to expect when you are expecting? I never ever think (according to Burcu) that skinny jeans can or should be out. Its the most body flattering denim. How dare? And I know Rachel Zoe is a huge fan of Flare denim and I’ve read about this news in The Zoe Report so it makes sense that she lives in Flare Denim why not trending more and more each day. I need to check flare denim in Zara, Mavi, Levis or Mango (Spanish brands should do it better) or maybe splurge from Mih or Paige denim. In flare denim I feel shorter the legs with sneakers so you need high heel wedges to full them off. Skinny jeans goes with everything. Alternative to skinny jeans there’s this biker jeans. I remember a woman with stilettos wearing biker jeans and carrying same shades Burberry bag. She was super sophisticated I felt like an outsider as she walked by. I was at Topshop the other day checking whats in and on sale in the store and I got a huge lost in denim section moment as Hailey Baldwin’s photos were all over – she is the face of Topshop denim. Topshop runs high- waisted jeans and I remember trying them never worked for me. I even tried them at Scandinavian hip brands Weekday, Cheap Monday and Monki, never worked on me. The cut is so 90s I can not feel ok in them. And I kind of don’t like covering my stomach with very high waist jeans.
Think about style icon Kate Moss. She likes to wear skinny jeans alot and she also likes flare jeans that are very 70s and she pulls them off in both styles: rock chic to 70s chic.I live in my skinny jeans despite I am not really very skinny it is my favorite cut.

I am in love with neutral colours lately. Yesterday at Topshop I saw 2 girls wearing head to toe black, they were doing something so right and stylish I was wondering what went so wrong with my casual style. Then I thought they are too young and trying too hard. One of them had dark brown lipstick the last thing to put on when you are underage. Somewhat sometimes trying so hard works well too. I kind of always thought that people wearing only black are missing something ( or never been to Italy maybe?!) I figure it out like that cause Italians are the using colour experts in styling game and they were ridiculus colours together no matter what season is- and they make those vibrant colours and prints work together blended so well.
Do you remember that in the 2000 millenium BBC special Vogue power Anna Wintour, the super editor was seen previewing a collection by former Yves Saint Laurent creative director Stefano Pilati. “So you’re not really feeling colour, Stefano?” she barks, beadily eyeballing the grey creations being presented for her approval. A defeated-looking Stefano replies, “No, you know, it’s my mood; in winter I never feel so much for colour. It’s more a summer thing for me, frankly...” Narrowing her eyes, Wintour lowers her head disapprovingly, blinks furiously then sighs. I loved that scene and it was totally September issue feeling. This is what I feel for people who only wear black - head to toe and then looks über chic and elegant and has a style. I love the look and how cool being in black layering but on the other hand I have never been ready to say goodbye to other colours. I even like all those pink handbags Paris Hilton was carrying in her 20s. Pink is colour of happiness and I can not let go. I also can not let go neutral shades, gray is my favorite winter colour and I love plums, violets, greens and blues. Print can also make a significant detail of a look, mostly in summer. None of Brits can give up on polka dots right? Its hard. I love Italian fashion houses like Marni and Missoni I can not imagine them release a black and white collection. Missoni tried it abit with famous prints but had never totally gone colour-less or only black. It would be something else but Italian.
I have a tendency to white shade lately using both in summer and winter. In summer it actually works better. In summer white colour also complements bronze skin- if you get the chance for tanning. Still it works with everyone. Since last year I am obsessed with beige – nude shade. Its perfect to combine with other colours and its elegant. I want to have beige sneakers lately. Every shade of beige- nude is welcome.
