New York, Octorber 20th, a typical Tuesday Night instantly turned a Wall Street venue from a Financial mecca to Fashions most wanted with the who’s who of the industry all out to buy a piece of the collaboration. This being the launch OF THE incredible collaboration of Balmain X H&M. The ambiance provided a furturistic subway scene and a typical runway with all the top models from Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio to Jourdan Dunn. Let’s just say this was nothing short of a full blown fashion fiesta. It was exciting, electric, and you could feel the energy amongst the crowd. The show started with an amazing presentation of the video which was shot for the campaign starring Kendall, Gigi, Jourdan Dunn (just to mention a few) followed by a beautiful dance company in which some of the girls even looked like fashion soldiers in a Balmain Army. As the dancers waltzed off the stage, the lights hit the runway, the music got loud, and the crowd waited in anticipation for the first look to walk out. As each model paraded down the glossy catwalk, all eyes were glued to the structured, leather jackets that we all love. Colorful pieces that highlighted much of Balmain’s attention to detail displaying texture, as well as beading, sequence, and suede. Genie pants popped up more than once, providing a tomboy chic look amongst all of the glamorous pieces.


Just when we thought the show was coming to a close, a special appearance from The Backstreet Boys had us all on our feet. Of course, all the band members were dressed in their own tailored Balmain X H&M outfits providing even more eye candy than we thought we signed up for. After throwing us all back to our teenage years, The Backstreet Boys joined Olivier and his army of Supermodels as they closed out the show.


Now, we all know that after the show is the after party ….and that’s exactly where we all went. They held the fiesta in the same venue and before I knew it, I was taking selfies with Actress Diane Krueger and Top Model Sara Sampaio. The evening exceeded all expectations I had for what I thought was going to be the usual high fashion shows that I’m used to attending during NYFW.


Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, in which I found myself feeling extremely grateful to H&M Bulgaria for inviting me to be a part of an unforgettable experience! This one will definitely go down in the books! I can’t wait for you all to be able to see the new collection which hits ALL H&M stores and on-line, this November 5th, 2015.

A skirt and a sweater is the perfect smart-casual combination for the season. It’s elegant enough no mater what and you still can play with the materials and the cuts. My choice todays falls on oversized wool sweater and a metallic skirt. Love the combination! It really is one of my favourite.


And the final touch- my absolute love- the “Dun Dun” Paula Cademartori Feather bag. We already posted about her bags HERE . They are really really great statement pieces that complete effortlessly  your outfit. With all the celebs and fashion editors gone crazy for them, they are the must have bags.

Sport and futurism were the themes at last night’s H&M Studio show for autumn/winter 2015, held at the Grand Palais in Paris. Models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Edie Campbell wore pieces from H&M’s key seasonal collection, which also mixed together functional pieces and feminine layers. Solange Knowles, Audrey Tautou and Noomi Rapace were among the guests who sat front row at the H&M Studio show, held during Paris Fashion Week in a specially constructed lunar landscape inside the Grand Palais.

Winter is all about warm outfits. And what better to go with them than cool hats? These days, with all the cold wind, all I’ve been thinking of taking with me out the door is a hat. Looking around for the perfect hat is a bit challenging since I am never sure of what size I should take. Finally I’ve figured out that it is better to be a little bigger than too small because too tight hat can actually give you a headache.

And although I’ve got few hats now this classic model is one of my favourite. It is so easy to wear, it just goes perfect with everything. If you gonna choose one hat, then go with this one.

Hi guys! The holidays are over and I am back to real life. But with few sunny days in a row I got a chance to leave the chunky sweaters behind and wear lighter clothes. One of my favourite combinations is with white shirt. Paired with whatever, the chick shirt gives the outfit really stylish vibe although the outfit might be even more casual and relaxed.  Looking for the perfect shirt might be tough but it always pays you off. For the day or for evening out, it’s absolutely perfect item and a must have.
