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.

Hey guys,

I called this story “Red-Hot Flames” because initially I was inspired by this red hot Gianvitos I got. The shoes as you probably see were inspired by the flames of a fire as Gianvito Rossi himself have told me. Yeah I was lucky enough to work with this talented man and learn a lot about the way he creates his sexy shoes. But let me tell you the most impressive aspect of working with him was the will and positive attitude towards hard working and being involved in all aspects of his shoe company. He loves his work, his shoes, his clients, his life!!! And what’s not to love after all he creates art and as we know creativity is intelligence having fun!!! 😉


Since I have never owned a red pair of shoes I did decide that my first pair should be special and it is indeed, don’t you think? What more special than a shoe simulating flames?!


So obviously they really got me excited and I went in my closet on the search for a cool funky way to tone the sexiness and fire of this shoe down in order to make it street style cool. Et voila what better way than an oversized Givenchy t-shirt and a pair of leather pants, so cool I thought. As I put it all together, I loved it, but you know that feeling when you know something is missing.


I decided I needed something more in this red-hot shade and I thought how about red-hot lips. Then I went into a search of the hottest strong red almost coral like color lipsticks in all the beauty stores in NYC. And I found this gem of a lip tar that is by the company called Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. They are 100 % vegan and cruelty free and have all the different crazy colors and even some metallic! You can also mix different ones and create your own shade, which I thought was so cool and I have seen make up artists do all the time.


With this discovery of mine I felt satisfied that my look was done. I think that I accomplished what I was aiming for… a cool, funky but yet feminine and sexy outfit! What do you guys think? May be a new interpretation of Sex and The City, but instead of my Manolos are my Gianvitos!


Special thanks to the two man I absolutely love working with Gianvito Rossi and his sales director who I adore Serge Biasin!!!

Hey guys,

After a quick summer here in NYC, unfortunately seasons are changing fast, we are in fall already. As the weather changes and I feel like I didn’t get enough of the summer days I wanted to mix some of my summer pieces with my fall stuff. I also wanted to make my sometimes very classic and conservative Chanel Jacket look young, sassy and fresh! So what better way than mixing it with a ripped jean skirt and a thigh high boot. Et voila, I thought the two will never look so cool until I put them on together. Well let’s see what do you think? Hope we still get some lost warm days before the winter hits. Definetly not ready for any of it. 😉

The world of Beatrix Ost

The world of Beatrix Ost – Magical, Colorful, Avant-garde, Full of Character and Art. A Wild Incredible Paradise

The beautiful and enchanted world of Beatrix Ost has touched me deeply to the core of my soul and inspired me to pursue her to be featured on the blog and just like a little child to take a piece of her wisdom with me. The positivity of this lady came through to me the first time I met her and gives a memorable impression shining through her smile, perhaps because of the diamond incrusted in her tooth. She is the living embodiment of an inspirational woman in every sense. Her deep wisdom and love are just mesmerizing, but at the age of 74 her curiosity, simple joy, and effortless bliss you feel from her is the very child like quality she grabs you and impresses you with the most.  She loves life more than anyone. An artist, World War II Survivor she became also a writer at the age of 60.  She just wanted to preserve her memories and experience for the family memoirs. She does everything with so much passion and attention to detail from painting, writing, cooking, to her apartment and even designing her own clothes. 

Her kindness, warmth, and creativity extended to supporting a family of Tibetans monks for a year by assigning them with creating a rug for her with inscription of words from her personal notebook. She can’t live without her red lipstick and silk turbans. Her favorite designers are Vivienne Westwood, Comme De Garcons, and Philip Treacy. The name of her first book that is being made into a movie “ My Father’s House: A Childhood in Wartime Bavaria”.

Her philosophy of life: “In your body is a good place to be”

In the photos: Dress, cape, gloves designed by her. Shoes Varda, rings Cordognato Venice, necklace antique crystal, earrings vintage 20’s designer, turban Italian silk.
