Wheels and Dollbaby


Monday, October 10, 2016

Wheels and Dollbaby Edith Head, the great costumier of Hollywood films, once said that “clothes are the way you present yourself to the world; they affect the way the world feels and thinks about you; subconsciously they affect the way you feel and think about yourself.” A sharp observation which resonates strongly with me, as I firmly believe that a woman says ...

L’Hotel – The best luxury boutique hotel in Paris.


Monday, February 22, 2016

Oscar Wilde, perhaps my favourite author, famously once said, “Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” Taking his own words to heart, poverty stricken and in Paris, dear Oscar, nearing the end of his days, moved into a hotel above his means and stayed there until his death in November 1900. That hotel stands to this day, ...

Helena Modjeska-Icon of Style. Reconstructions of XIX century costumes


Friday, June 21, 2013

Once a year, on the day of my birth, I like to indulge my senses, in a way, an act of regenerating, of reminding myself of who and what I am. On one of these occasions, I was taken to Versailles by Mr de Merteuil, waking on the morning in a hotel that used to be the royal stables and spending ...

Such was the case with my discovery in a very fashionable yet, hidden away from the tourists, part of Warsaw. L’AURA boutique is a serendipitous surprise, a magical jewel that reminds ...

I simply can’t help myself and my need to ...

Shopping for vintage in London.


Monday, November 5, 2012

Shopping for vintage in London. I’ve often preached to my friends about choosing quality clothes over quantity and investing in key pieces that will serve them for years and won’t go out of style for a long, long time.
