Kazbegi Getaway

It’s hard to realize how much stress is on your shoulders until it’s gone. I left for a long weekend getaway to Kazbegi mountains (in Georgia), which turned out to be the most calming and stress-free place I have ever been to. Finding peace was not the purpose of the trip but a generous bonus. I left for Tbilisi on the 3rd day being totally in peace with myself; Calm, stress-free and full of positive thought.

We stayed at the Rooms Hotel – cozy and comfortable place surrounded with the most breathtaking views (which were covered in snow that weekend). As I am far from being a good photographer I could hardly capture all the beauty and atmosphere, however, I can share a feeling:
On a late evening I found myself alone at the swimming pool. I was in the water looking through the windows, seeing silhouettes of enormous mountains and light of the Gergeti church on the top of one of the hills. Gentle light at the pool, smell of wood and this view felt absolutely surreal. This wasn’t a moment worth capturing for me but it was worth stopping, appreciating and remembering.

Of course, the hotel has some other perk, such as an amazing breakfast including champaign and sweetest staff.. but that’s all just details 🙂

Thanks for catching up. Wish you all the weekends full of fun and relaxation!

MBFW Tbilisi AW18

As I woke up this morning, I decided to have some “Me Time” and headed to the pool on my own. I spent 4 hours swimming, listening to the music and browsing through Vogue and then it hit me: I completely forgot to share my Vogue and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week updates with you , so here we go!

This season MBFW tried on a new location (Tbilisi Circus), which I wasn’t really fond of. However, many designers managed to create their own atmosphere in that environment.   Two shows that impressed me the most there were  Ingorokva, with her strong, mostly dark, masculine shapes and colorful Dalood, with some rebellious vibes.

Other than that, my two favorites from the total week were Anouki and Djaba Diasamidze. These two had completely different shows. While Anouki made me feel lucky for being in the beautiful small room filled with fashion , Djaba killed it with the biggest and most festive of the shows. His show started with Moet Campaigns and continued with his signature gowns, which made everyone feel like we have been in Djabas beautiful world for a little while and came back full of emotions and inspiration. I guess you can tell that his show definitely was my favorite!

MBFW AW18

And now a fact about my personal fashion: spontaneous looks which I plan in a hurry turn out to have a better result and I feel more comfortable in them. Two of my looks from this fashion week ended up Vogue (USA and Poland). Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 1.12.48 PMScreen Shot 2018-05-07 at 1.07.27 PM

Putting on something sparkling, my new favorite scent, little touch-ups for extra confidence and we are ready to party!

Gudauri Tripping

gudauri 7

I love being busy. I enjoy life being hectic and things happening but sometimes routine takes over, it gets overwhelming and I know that it’s time for a little break. Here weekend getaways come right handy! Therefore, I decided to share with one of my favorite getaway destinations. Winter is not legit without a trip to Gudauri, which is just 2 hours away from Tbilisi and has veriety of skiing mountains. No matter how good your skiing skills are, you will find your element in Gudauri.
There is nothing better than taking rest at one of the restaurants on the mountains, enjoying something hot with the breathtaking view.  Hotel Marco Polo is another place with the view and different ways of relaxation. Even a regular weekend in this paradise brings me harmony, energy and positivity for weeks!

Weekly Favorites

Last Monday turned out to be perfectly productive for me. Other than finding time to run all the errands and getting small things done, I took a little detour to snap this outfit, starring my new baby bag! This cutest Simon Miller mini nubuck bucket bag has been intriguing me for a while before I got my hands on it. Turns out that this tiny one can fit more than I thought and it makes any casual look so much more upscale.

Shortly about the rest of the outfit: My shoes are Zara (probably inspired by Celine boots, that’s what they remind me), very into these shapes right now. Sweater is COS (great quality! Similar here). Love the long, chunky sleeves and the texture. White shirt underneath is H&M Studio collection AW17 (with high cutouts on the sides). And tailored pants are from Mango. Little tip: I like to roll up the pants in an uneven, effortless way to make tailored pants look casual and cool.

Hope you enjoyed this #ootd post just as much as I felt about wearing and carrying it!

Thank you for catching up!

Stay tuned for the next blogpost next Wednesday!

Perfectly Mismatching

Let’s talk earrings! If I wear a bracelet it’s minimalistic; the same with necklaces but when it comes to earrings, well, sometimes they are my statement items for the whole look. I believe earrings can draw the right attentions to your face and neckline. When the outfit is right I prefer big earring and today I am very into large, MISMATCHING earrings that have took over all the major fashion shows and stared in street style shots. earrings2

We are not talking about the same earrings of different colors, or, same style symbols like star and moon. We are talking about absolutely different earrings, with different length, or shape and/or even style.

Very cool, very edgy but very chic.

Hope you like this trend as much as I do, especially since it is so easy to match and wear. Mismatching earring can instantly elevate your look so, just keep them in mind (or your bag)! And stay tuned for the new blog next Wednesday!

 

 

What’s In My Bag

bag.cov,Nothing can tell more about a girl than her purse. I guess that’s the reason why “what’s in my bag” blogs and vlogs are so attractive to spectators. I have been watching these series for ages and here I am, doing a humble version of mine today.

Let me just start with my bag. This gorgeous purse from the brand o7eleven has been with me for more than a year and wherever I go it always manages to be in the center of attention.
P.S. you will rarely find my phone in my bag because I usually have it in my hands.

Bag.end

2 things you can always find in my bag are my keys and a cardholder. I love my Laduree keychain.. hard not to.. And when we talk cardholders  I will just say that they are the only wallet I use. Many brands are producing cardholders but if you are interested in affordable ones, you can find more like mine at Monki.bag.1

Who leaves home without phone charger? I don’t! And this portable charger is so small and comfortable to through to every bag. bag2

If you dig deeper you will also discover my sunnies. I change them constantly but these Rey Ban ones are my go-to pair for almost a year already. And you never know when Sun protection or certain coverage will be needed!

My hand cream is my new obsession. First of all let’s just take a moment to appreciate the packaging! you will want to be holding it in you hands forever. And trust me, as weather becomes colder I. need. my. hand cream!bag4

For a quick fresh-up during the day I simply apply my Universal Powder,  lip liner (which I use like a lipstick over the whole lip) and add a scent. This Chanel perfume has a perfect size to travel with it on any distance. bag7

And last but not least, a lip balm, paper tissues and pain killers. Nothing should ruin your time, or distract you from what’s important. I especially get distracted my chopped lips, so not having a balm is not an option for me. bag9

So that’s it for this blog. Obviously, the content in my bag changes according to certain occasions but these were the things you can find in my o7eleven most often. bag bolo
Thank you for your time!
See you next Wednesday with the new blog!

 

 

 

Streets in Red

As much as I love following big fashion houses and my favorite designers bringing it to the runways, I also admire stalking street style snaps and I believe I’m not alone! With the number of photographers, trends, effort and INVESTMENT, today Street Style photography looks like an editorial-gone-wild. For any fashion-driven individual out there, it seems as amusing as the actual catwalk. For me, the purpose of digging through these images is first of all inspiration for myself and also endless information about the trends, that I need to stay on top of for my job.

red

One of the biggest trend I couldn’t help but notice was RED. It just happened so, that some of the favorites of the street style photographers decided to wear head-to-toe red and it worked just perfectly and it makes you wanna try it yourself. I wouldn’t say that red is a new black because red is being RED- bold, attractive and intriguing.

All this trend tells me is to keep it bold!

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week AW17

When all the IT girls of Tbilisi dress up in the latest trends and gather in MOMA, you know its Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Tbilisi. The craziness started on May 4th and lasted for 5 days, taking over the city. Tones of inspiration for the next (AW17) season from talented designers like Anouki, George Keburia, ELOSHI, Tamuna Ingorokva and others, in combination with some new acquaintances made these days super fun and memorable. In Addition I got featured in the American Vogue’s Street Style section which you can check here for all the best looks from Tbilisi.

This time I decided to put together my Insta Stories and videos instead of the photos. It includes my most favorite shows, so I hope you will enjoy it as much as the images!

You can view the previous season’s MBFW blog here.

Black and Spring Situation

So here is the story (behind this formal outfit):
I bought these heels online on a cold winter day, hoping that one day the sun would warm the air and I would bare my feet with a little velvet coverage. Then they spent months in my closet…
When the big day arrived I was trying on a blouse by Twist X Turn, the brand I discovered in London. I decided that this classy print with cool shape and statement sleeves would work perfectly with those shoes I’ve never worn before! So I called Ika and we went to shoot.
Initially, the outfit had no glasses. But somehow, these pink shades always find their way to make it in this and many other outfits lately because… why not?! I’m obsessed with them!

So here is how it all worked out together. I figured it was worth posting and hope you feel the same way!
