Featured in January 2013 issue of Company magazine as part of ‘Super Bloggers issue’
First Loubies and also putting a flag on the quarter-of-a-century-year-old mountain peak.

For 2013, I’m praying for less shoes, more family, less ‘me’, more ‘you’, and a LOT more of humbleness when it comes to keeping this blog. Just because some people on Twitter don’t know the difference between ‘you’re’ and ‘your’, doesn’t mean I’m king, right. Or does it. Wishing my readers a blessed New Year, full of love, health and happiness – see you in 2013!

Look 1: Red pea coat – Uniqlo. Sweater – Minusey. Jeans – Urban Outfitters. Heels – ASOS. Bag – Alexander Wang. Phone case - Candies gifts
Look 2:  Red pea coat - Uniqlo. Shirt – Gap. Flare jeans – MiH Marrakesh. Boots – Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony. Sunnies – Sheriff & Cherry. Bag - Kurt Geiger
Look 3:  Red pea coat - Uniqlo. Circle cape + Belt – Tallulah & Hope. Dress – ASOS. Jeans - James Jeans. Booties – ASOS. Bag – 3.1 Phillip Lim. 

There you have it – three different-ish ways to wear a wine-red pea coat and the last installment of Uniqlooks for 2012. It’s beyond me how I’ve managed to do this series for over a year now (Commitment? Never met him), I wish I did it with a gym membership or something because now I can’t find any shoes that will go with my post-Crimbo muffin top. Did you have a good Christmas/break? High-five if you too can’t tie your shoelaces anymore (that’s why we invest in velcro soulutions).

6-month old niece that there’s no Santa! This is my first year to be away from family, but I’m spending it quietly with my husband and making new memories. We got ourselves preggers on a very traditional Polish meal (12-dishes, veggie-Bigos [no meat/alcohol on the eve!], pickled herring, a cup of steaming beetroot soup), read a bit of the bible and laughed like merry dwarves over apple pie dessert.

If you’re curious about the Christmas message, this verse from the book of John is a good Cliff’s notes-y summary without going into too much detail.

Happy Christmas my lovelies!

Creamy cashmere staples from the White Company
Airbag for everyday cycling safety thanks to Chanel (Cocoon collection) of course.
Barely there – Chain ring by Iwona Ludyga, Green sapphire necklace by Laura Lee and mummy’s old gold rings
Second skin T by Alexander Wang (grey | black)
Superhero cape for any woman – black stilettos by Christian Louboutin (Corneille Kid)
The leather jacket (Shearling for colder seasons – Muubaa Aurora)

I had it all figured out – I built a machine (The Winchester) that would guarantee survival for myself and Emma Stone (and Jennifer Lawrence, if she’s up for that kind of relationship) when the first fiery meteor of the Apocalypse hits the world. We’d sit in it, have a pint and wait for it all to blow over, then we’d step out onto a charred earth and repopulate and generally live happily ever after. And these are a few things I’d have packed – timeless pieces so I don’t unnecessarily exchange food for the latest alien trend, but I understand old habits will die hard (i.e see me shell out kebabs for a pair of Charlotte Olympia kitty flats this season).

It takes a while to understand which pieces are Forever classics for you, and I believe we all have different sets, but for me it was seeing what I took into the shower every day, and the kind of clothes I wanted to slip into the minute I dried off. Not to forget of course, little accents like red lips or a pair of Louboutins (my first!) that help take on the day. I’d also add the Isabel Marant sneakers as a Forever classic, but I’ll save that for if & when I’m doing ‘What’s in the diaper bag’ post, as I’m convinced it’ll be the only thing I’ll wear from ‘fashion’ once a junior is born in the far future.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to pick up the Jan 2013 issue of Company, you’re missing out on seeing the results of an impossible-made-possible shoot that was a solid giggle-fest. I don’t even know how Laetitia and I ended up on a chair, probably dared eachother while

throwing your mum jokes at eachother. Plus, there’s THIRTEEN bloggers on the cover, that must be some kind of record broken right there. Championed by Susie Bubble, it’s a great little feature with nuggets of blogging advice and how everyone came to be where they are. We also filled out a little Q&A thing where it asked what my favourite AW piece is (to my horror my handwriting just got printed, in its full gory glory), and whatever I drew there, all I can now see is a nipple, or sunny side up eggs, at the best. Anywho, do pick up a copy!
