BASKET- A PERFECT SUMMER BAG

BASKET- A PERFECT SUMMER BAG

I still remember the basket my mother used to carry to do daily shopping. She wore clogs and white dresses, and now that I think about it, she was an epitome of boho chic. Later, we would only pull out baskets around Easter time (my Polish readers will know why :)). Baskets fell out ofContinue Reading

SUMMER IN TOTEME DRESS

SUMMER IN TOTEME DRESS

I’m very excited that our new site is coming along nicely and we are almost there! But not quite yet…who would have thought that we need to decided on a number of pixels between photos… But hey- it’s not long now and we will tell you on Instagram (obv :)) once the new site andContinue Reading

THIS IS NOT A GOOD BYE

THIS IS NOT A GOOD BYE

Recently I wrote a post about how blogging felt a little stale lately. Trish and I have been blogging for 2 years and felt like it was time to do something a little different, explore a bit and go beyond our current format. We started with changing our website and decided it was time to take aContinue Reading

THE CASE OF BARE LEGS & WINTER COAT

THE CASE OF BARE LEGS & WINTER COAT

Fed up with black tights and ever present trousers, I decided that +10C was just enough to bare my legs. It is March after all, isn’t it? London is usually quite mild (famous last words) so we can get away with no socks much longer into the Autumn than perhaps the rest of Europe andContinue Reading

WOULD YOU WEAR WHITE LEATHER?

WOULD YOU WEAR WHITE LEATHER?

Have I told you yet  that I’m obsessed with leather trousers? I guess I did. What I haven’t told you is that I’m equally obsessed with St Lauren. Oh, hang on, I have told you that, too. Well, I guess when lather and one of my favourite brands collide like yesterday at Paris Fashion Week,Continue Reading

ONE STYLE I NEVER THOUGHT I’D WEAR

ONE STYLE I NEVER THOUGHT I’D WEAR

When these nice folks from Na-Kd sent me a bunch of clothes, this jacket was the only one item I wasn’t sure how to style.  I didn’t think it was “me”.  Kiedy firma Na-Kd wyslala mi paczke z ciuchami, jedyna rzecza, na kora nie mialam pomyslu byla ta kurtka. Nie czulam sie w niej soba.  Then I saw photographs from January VetementsContinue Reading

CURRENT MOOD

CURRENT MOOD

This week for the first time I found myself stuck for images for a post. Stuck at home with a fractured ankle and growing fat on the sofa, I’ve had no chance to go and take photos outside. By this point I’ve grown sick of constant photos in my living room and I’m sure youContinue Reading

VALENTINE’S DAY

VALENTINE’S DAY

“What would you like for Valentine’s day?” – ask The French last night, mentally getting ready to visit shops in town, something he hasn’t done for yonks. “Nothing”- I said. “Is this a trap?”- he replied, anxious. “Co chcialabys distal na Walentynki” zapytal The French wczoraj wieczorem, przygotowujac sie na wyprawe “na sklepy”, cos, czego nie robil cale lata.Continue Reading

STYLE IS REFUSAL

STYLE IS REFUSAL

Coco Chanel once famously said that elegance is refusal and it always puzzled me. Only recently I finally understood what it meant. Or so I think. Coco Chanel powiedziala kiedys ze elegacja oznacza odmowe. Zawsze mnie to zdanie zastanawialo i nigdy nie bylam pewna co tak naprawde ono oznacza. Do niedawna.  Purging my closet at the endContinue Reading

HOW TO STYLE VINYL TROUSERS

HOW TO STYLE VINYL TROUSERS

Whoa, that’s a bit…kinky!- exclaimed Trish when I came to pick her up (little did I know I was walking around with fractured ankle) on Friday. We were going to Mr Bao for a dinner and a round of cocktails. Which is a perfectly appropriate venue for PVC trousers, non? “Wow, nie za bardzo perwersyjne?-zapytala Trish kiedy przyszlamContinue Reading

BYREDO MOJAVE GHOST, MY NEW SCENT…

BYREDO MOJAVE GHOST, MY NEW SCENT…

Some time ago I wrote (link) that I am a woman of one scent who has been using Tom Ford’s White Patchouli fragrance for years – and that’s because of my issues with changing a perfume brand. Well I’m delighted to announce that I am now a woman of two scents! :-), thanks to myContinue Reading

LOU DOILLON- THE ULTIMATE PARISIENNE

LOU DOILLON- THE ULTIMATE PARISIENNE

The end of January usually marks a time when I’m lacking inspiration on the fashion front. It’s when I really, really, really want to be in a bikini and denim shorts yet work commitments mean that I won’t go near it for some time.  So it’s in the dead of winter when I turn intoContinue Reading

I DIDN’T BUY CLOTHES FOR A MONTH

I DIDN’T BUY CLOTHES FOR A MONTH

At the beginning of January I embarked on a “frugal month challenge”. It meant no new clothes, no unnecessary purchases and Deliveroo app deleted from my phone. The aim was not so much to save money (although that was a nice byproduct of the challenge) but to get off a consumer merry-go-around. Na pocztaku stycznia podjelamContinue Reading

WHERE TO BUY AFFORDABLE CASHMERE

WHERE TO BUY AFFORDABLE CASHMERE

Trish told me once that she’d rather drink white wine than cheap champagne. I’m a polar opposite. I don’t care if I’m drinking Pol Roger or Heidsieck, I enjoy them both, equally. As much as I love sophistication of expensive champagne, I love its cheaper sibling, too. Well, cashmere it’s pretty much in the sameContinue Reading

ONE DAY IN WINTER-  DIARY OF A LONDONER

ONE DAY IN WINTER- DIARY OF A LONDONER

It’s 8pm on Sunday and the Met Office just issued a weather warnings. Blizzard is on the way to London. Well, I do hope my boss is watching this because I’ve got a feeling that I’m not going to the office tomorrow. Niedziela, godzina dwudziesta. Synoptycy wlasnie zapowiedzieli, ze sniezyce sa w drodze na Londyn.Continue Reading

THE STORY OF A CERTAIN PAINTING

THE STORY OF A CERTAIN PAINTING

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when an image suddenly caught my attention. It was an image of a painting by Norbert Goeneutte “The Boulevard de Clichy under Snow”. Under a moody Parisian sky dark figures in Belle Epoque clothes were wandering down a snowy street. Przegladajac zdjecia na Instagramie zauwzylam jedno, ktore natychmiastContinue Reading

IN SEARCH OF PERFECT DENIM

IN SEARCH OF PERFECT DENIM

For all that noise about 90’s revival, I still haven’t found anything resembling denim I used to wear as a teenager. Cigarette leg, stiff, strictly no stretch and very boyish- Wranglers were my favourite. I used to wear it with branded tees and sneakers (ahem). Przy calym tym halasie zwiastujacym powrot mody do lat dziewiecdziesiatych,Continue Reading

CONSUMER CULTURE

CONSUMER CULTURE

“Have you bought anything in the sales?- asked a friend recently. I haven’t. This year’s sales came and went without me buying a single item. Kupilas cos na wyprzedazach?- zapytala ostatnio przyjaciolka. Nic. W tym roku wyprzedaze zdarzyly sie beze mnie.  Normally, a self-confessed shopaholic, I would be in and out of Selfridges, trying to snap upContinue Reading

SO HERE IT IS, MERRY CHRISTMAS

SO HERE IT IS, MERRY CHRISTMAS

Happy Christmas girls! I hope you will have a wonderful time filled with love, light and laughter with your family and friends. PS. I’m taking a little time off so there won’t be new posts next week. I’ll be back on 3 January 2017. See you next year!

THE END OF 2016

THE END OF 2016

So 2016 is coming to and end. In just over a week we will start a new chapter with new hopes and dreams, and perhaps some new year resolutions. Do you feel relieved 2016 is almost over? This has been the most unsettling year I remember. I was born during a huge political upheaval inContinue Reading

MEET SASHENKA

MEET SASHENKA

If you ask any successful entrepreneur why did they start their own business, there’s really only one answer. It’s not the money (although of course ultimately we are all in business to make money) or fame or even hating your boss. The answer is this- because if I didn’t do it, I would regret itContinue Reading

DOES BLOGGING FEEL STALE LATELY?

DOES BLOGGING FEEL STALE LATELY?

I’ve been asking myself this question quite a lot, recently. Maybe because of the imminent arrival of Christmas and hundreds of gift guides on virtually every blog out there? Is is the onslaught of Gucci loafers (guilty) or Gucci belts (guilty) being sported by almost every blogger out there? Czy bloging ostatnio nie wydaje sie nieco “zwietrzale”?Continue Reading

I WANT TO BE A SAINT LAUREN GIRL

I WANT TO BE A SAINT LAUREN GIRL

Marching into Zara on Friday lunchtime (working in central London is shaping to be deadly to my wallet) I had only one thing on my mind- vinyl trousers. I have fallen hard and fast for a a pair I saw on a Polish website maare.eu. But as I’m currently between sizes (I’m trying to getContinue Reading

OFF THE SHOULDER JUMPER

OFF THE SHOULDER JUMPER

Just in case you aren’t yet bored with photos in my flat, here’s a few more 🙂 London has been uncharacteristically freezing for the past two week, which, coupled with long hours I’ve been doing in the office, made taking photos a bit problematic. Tak na wszelki wypadek, jest jeszcze nie znudzily Wam sie zdjecia w mom mieszkaniu,Continue Reading

THE RETURN OF LEOPARD PRINT COAT

THE RETURN OF LEOPARD PRINT COAT

There aren’t many things in my wardrobe that The French hates more than this leopard print coat (maybe my Isabel Marant military jacket. Maybe). “Oh but darling- I said- you’ve never even seen me wearing this coat without irony. Wait until your office Christmas party…”. Niewiele jest rzeczy w mojej szafie, ktorych The French tak nie znosi jak plaszcza, ktoryContinue Reading

DOUBLE TAP

DOUBLE TAP

Do you remember what was your first photo on Instagram? I posted a picture of a pair of sandals and was super happy with five likes it got. But what’s the fuss, I kept wandering when I couldn’t find anything or anyone on the app. Czy  pamietasz swoje pierwsze zdjecie na Instagramie? Ja wrzucilam pareContinue Reading

OVERSEIZED KNIT

OVERSEIZED KNIT

Between Halloween and Christmas everybody in London runs on “crazy time”. Champagne fuelled Christmas lunches and parties have already started. Work is getting hectic as everybody want to get things done before putting their feet up. Shopping extravaganza is already in motion. I’m guilty on all counts, Your Honour. Pomiedzy Halloween a Swietami Bozego Narodzenia LondynczycyContinue Reading

CHANNELING ALT

CHANNELING ALT

I’ve had many style crushes over the years, from Kate Moss to Charlotte Gainsbourg, and most recently Maja Wyh. But no matter how far I wander, I always come back to the same sets of photos of Emmanuelle Alt. Alt in Milan, Alt after a fashion, Alt in Paris; always looking super simple yet utterly epic.Continue Reading

OWNING IT

OWNING IT

Is there anything more effortless than a grey sweatshirt and a pair jeans? It’s a rhetorical question yet for about a year since Trish and I started this site, I struggled with showing you my real style. Czy jest cos bardziej swobodnego i stylowego niz szara bluza i para jeansow? Z oczywistych powodow bylo toContinue Reading
