London stole my heart

7 March 2017

I find myself dancing in an empty room. A good beat rises in the speakers, I don’t think, I just start moving my hips and go frenzy. Alone in a big house.
Is this how freedom tastes like? I love it! I feel liberated (no, I didn’t drink wine that day). But in a way it also scares me.
It will end, it cannot go on forever. Soon I will be bored, frightened for my future, probably depressed.
Can you already imagine those bipolar emotions I experience? And it’s only the beginning…

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW17 / STREET STYLE part 2

So I gotta admit, it is tempting to be a part of that distinguished fashion world. I miss wearing my maxi skirts and being cold because I was underdressed but stylish. This experience during London Fashion Week woke up my passion for fashion. And I didn’t forget why I stopped doing a style blog. But now I’m thinking that maybe there is a golden mean to it and I could easily reconcile my true fascination (that I had since I was a brat!) with the contempt for vanity, showing off, falseness and cheeky deals. I have a room full of clothes that I don’t wear anymore, it’s outrageous! Isn’t it time to change that and really be my true self?

Here’s the second part of my street style stories.

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW17 / STREET STYLE part 1

One day, a few years back, I needed a change and a vision. I thought…

What can I do differently but stay my true self? How about street style photography?

Do you know Hel-looks? It was one of my biggest inspiration, my window to the world of fashion. It started in 2005 and was my favourite place on the internet back then. And you most certainly know The Sartorialist. Scott made me believe that this could even be a job.

Yeah, that’s something I could enjoy doing.

We almost didn’t make it to the famous Portobello Road because of the constant rain. Oh, how happy I am that I saw Notting Hill! Calm and quiet, beautiful, pastel district of London. Now I completely understand Alice’s fascination. I can imagine myself living here.

O mało włos nie dotarlibyśmy na Portobello Road z powodu nieustającego deszczu. Ale jestem szczęśliwa, że zobaczyłam Notting Hill! Spokojna i cicha, piękna, pastelowa dzielnica Londynu. Teraz rozumiem fascynację Alice. Mogę wyobrazić sobie moje życie tu.

London – part 2

Everybody’s talking about Shoreditch. Who doesn’t hang out there isn’t a proper hipster. I had to check out this famous place myself to see if its energy is really that strong. Well, it is. Vintage stores, designer boutiques, artists workshops, galleries, bars and restaurants, narrow streets, modern & old architecture coexisting, food markets, beautiful people dressed in the most stylish way. In weekends it’s so crowded that you can’t actually move in your own tempo. I got back there in the middle of the week and had a chance to visit some places like Religion and Harnett&Pope shops. I aboslutely fell in love with this district. And I’m planning to sell Charlotte Rouge things there.

Wszyscy mówią o Shoreditch. Kto tam nie spędza czasu nie jest porządnym hipsterem. Musiałam zobaczyć to miejsce na własne oczy i sprawdzić, czy jego energia jest rzeczywiście tak silna. Tak więc jest. Sklepy vintage, targi, butiki projektantów, galerie, pracownie artystów, bary i restauracje, wąskie uliczki, nowoczesna i stara architektura żyjąca w zgodzie, piękni ludzie ubrani w najbardziej stylowy sposób. W weekendy jest tak cholernie tłoczno, że nie można się poruszać swoim własnym tempem. Dlatego wróciłam tam w środku tygodnia i odwiedziłam kilka miejsc jak sklepy Religion i Harnett&Pope. Kompletnie zakochałam się w tej dzielnicy. I planuję sprzedawać tu rzeczy Charlotte Rouge.
