This is a midi polka-dot dress from the Alexa Chung for M&S collection. It has a silky touch and is cut so perfectly that I decided to wear it during the day with an oversized Eric Bompard cashmere jumper. I added the heeled boots for a feminine touch. I have been carrying this bag for a year nonstop, it looks small but can fit so many things — I call it my Mary Poppins bag.
My outfits are quite subdued and look effortless. I love mid-heeled ankle boots. I have them in every possible color, and they make up the first part of my outfit when I'm getting dressed. I then choose accordingly for the rest of my look. People who know me would say that I always dress the same: it's either cropped pants or jeans with a plain T shirt, or a midi dress. But sometimes I can't resist adding a funky twist like a red cross-body bag or a white fur coat.
A magnificent vintage leather jacket with velvet and gold details. I can't wait to wear it!
A cross-body bag: perfect for both the daytime — I am always running around Paris holding a zillion things — and for unexpected nights out, when you obviously need your hands free to dance! Living in Paris taught me to perfect a minimalistic style. For that reason, I dress up very rarely to go out. My evening outfit generally consists of my daytime attire to which I add heels — when I'm not wearing them already — and red lipstick.
