Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only . Fashion is in the sky , in the street , fashion has to do with ideas , the way we live , what is happening.

Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway.

Unique and different is the next generation of beautiful.

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress , dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it’s about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong.

The printed jumpsuit

If you didn't get your hands on the must-have jumpsuit , then make sure you buy one - make it monochrome with a show-stopper print , like this MeeMee jumpsuit which looks way beyond its high-street price tag .

La Parisienne

Paris - the city of light , with its spectacular and iconic art and architecture , café culture and a deep air of romance .
The city where you can't sleep - there is something magical and almost dreamy about Paris , you seem to loose yourself and forget about the time and your daily commitments .
The city where as soon as you arrive you just want to dress up and enjoy the spectacular view from your local café whilst having a croissant and a cappuccino .

A letter from me to you !

When you're young you're told all sort of things , as you get older you pick up even more sayings , principles and beliefs , many of which you just assume to be true and never think to question .
However , I also think , for example , that a dream doesn't become reality through magic - it takes hard work , strength and determination and it surely doesn't happen as quick and easy as clapping your hands .
So I encourage you , my lovely fashionista , to break these so-called rules and live the life you've imagined ! Be ready to work hard and always strive for more !

London Fashion Week , day 1 - Designer highlights

From baby blues and icy greys to ivory-creams , sugary pale pinks , the S/S14 runaways in the first day of London Fashion Week were a dreamy artist's palette of summery watercolours .
I knew it the minute the model from the very first show of the season - Bora Aksu walked in .
Think ladylike shapes , classic and oh-so-feminine cuts in delicious pastel colours and a silhouette hotter than July .

The modern elegance is the starting point for most of the designers this season which is packed with Jasper Conran's must-have fit-and-flare skirts , J.Js. Lee's classic suits with a fabulous and beautifully coloured twist to Jean-Pierre Braganza's deliciously printed pieces .
A whole celebration of the woman and the "real" dressing !

Easy & edgy

There's no denying that the skinny , leather trousers are the perfect antidote for an easy to wear look and the perfect way to earn fashion points without upsetting your bank balance is to wear them with a man's shirt . So be ready to raid your boyfriend's wardrobe !

Coral beauty

Beauty , to me , is about being comfortable in your own skin .
Women are obsessed by extra weight or different aspects of their bodies and many of them have made their lives very difficult and rather sad , in my opinion .
So , my lovely fashionista , dare to be different ! Before you can convince others that you are beautiful , you've go to believe it yourself first !
With this in mind , grab your swimsuit and enjoy the last glimpses of sun . I absolutely love my coral swimsuit , courtesy of Triangl - the neoprene fabric is absolutely amazing , feels extremely soft on the skin and fits your body like a glove . Will be looking forward to wearing it next time !

Sophisticated stripes

You can't beat the stripes for a bit of sophistication and Nissa's 60's inspired jacket is pure luxe .
For a city approved ensemble , wear it with classic , timeless high waist denim jeans and nude heels - if you want a slimming effect , go for a leather , pencil skirt . Accessorise with plenty of attitude !

Walk on the fierce side

Fashion gets fierce for A/W13 . Fear not - the correct shoes and accessories will let you toughen up your wardrobe in style .
Pile the accessories with abandon - the more the merrier , wear a satchel handbag to match your studded boots , but keep the rest of the outfit simple and let the accessories to do the talking .
