She makes me crave summer while it's colder than ever!

Inside Rachel Roy's Midtown Showroom


After seeing Rachel in the Valentino rockstud kitten heels that are similar to the flats featured in this post, I want them more than ever.

Hello sweetie pies!
How was your weekend, relaxing or crazy?
Hope you like the place where I took these photos, it is actually an entrance to a museum. I love it,  looks very dark and mysterious.
I've noticed how lately I am constantly wearing my hair up. Why? Cause I am tired of it. I have a feeling it looks very boring but on the other hand, I love my long hair. I have couple of ideas what to do with it, maybe change a color or something but I'll see...
Staytuned,I have couple of giveaways waiting for you.
Oh and check out the new online shop I am working with, you can find the link on the right side of the blog, it is called oasap.com!
love, Mila

Self - Portrait in Mirror #1. eh.
Two years ago I would never have posted a picture of myself wearing a jumper and a pair of jeans. Even a year ago, the idea of such a mundane outfit being given centre stage would have been inconceivable. Just goes to show that things really have changed. On New Year’s Eve I posted about the type of clothes I am after now and posting the below image is, I guess, a mark of that. I felt comfortable and warm and weather appropriate today, and I am happy to admit that.

Two years ago I wore frilled skirts and feathers in my hair, obsessed with wanting to stand out. I love people who stand out due to what they wear. I admire it so much – it takes guts. I’ve had my fair share of WTF looks passed at me over the years, and most of the time I have taken it on the chin. But I am not the same person as I was two years ago (although I have always, always advocated the need of a wonderful warm woolly), and where back then I felt comfortable in more out there ensembles, now I feel more comfortable, more like myself, in simple and well chosen items. I also want to ‘get the wear’ out of all my clothes – items that can be dressed up, dressed down and made look all shiny and new with a quick change of tights and an unusual necklace.

Without being all soppy about it, I want my clothes to express a part of me – something about the kind of person I am (let’s not try and figure out what a thick wool jumper says about me though, eh? Er...lazy, not too bothered probably...I would prefer practical and eh... fuss free... ). I dress according to whims and pretty much always have done. I have noticed though a bit more consistency... and who knows, maybe at long last I am beginning to find some consistency in my style.  Regardless, I think I’ve finally learnt that I don’t need to apologise for not being ‘out there’ enough or not taking enough risks (as in sense I’ve been there; I’ve worn all the crinolines, red lipstick, zany tights, buttoned - up shirts, winklepickers, headbands, berets, midi lengths, maxi lengths, furs, feathers, sequins etc etc , and it goes without saying that I still love and ardently defend and admire that sort of  'fantastic fashion', just right now it's not necessarily for me). I am beginning to understand however, that being true to yourself is the only thing necessary in order to dress well and whether that means wool jumpers one day or flouncy layers the next, then so bit it. 



Jumper - on sale in Zara, is there anything better than admiring something full - priced and then it goes on sale for a fraction of the original price. Happy days.

You wanna tell me what this is all about?

(that's me as a white gangster from the 90s, YO)

You know that I don't usually do post like that, I mean about movies and etc. but Yesterday I watched Dangerous Minds which is an American drama film based on the autobiography "My Posse Don't Do Homework" by former U.S. Marine LouAnne Johnson, who took up a teaching position at Carlmont High School in Belmont, California, where most of her students wereAfrican-American and Hispanic teenagers from East Palo Alto, a then-unincorporated town at the opposite end of the school district. I remember that the first time I had watched that movie was few years ago when I was just a little boy and I didn't really understood a lot about the plot but after all I never forgot the soundtrack of the movie "Gangsters Paradise". So yesterday I took the decision to watch that movie again and thank god I did. A really good movie that inspired me a lot and also made me cry. Well yeah that's true bitches that shit made me cry!
   Louanne Johnson is an ex-marine, hired as a teacher in a high-school in a poor area of the city. She has recently separated from her husband. Her friend, also teacher in the school, got the temporary job for her. After a terrible reception from the students, she tries unconventional methods of teaching (using karate, Bob Dylan lyrics etc) to gain the trust of the students. And that wath she did. The whole movie is about that poor areas of America and the bright students that lives there, trying to survive to that cruel world and of course the  mew teacher (or the white-bread, Michelle Pfeiffer, I love her)  is there to make them believe that they can do it, that they can graduate and that they can make their own future! Very moving and touching epsecial when Emilio died (SPOIL), oh yeah, I was crying with the whole class too. Also it was a great chance to travel like 18 years back and know a little bit more about 90s and I am not sure that you can call me a 90s kid because I was born in 1994 so.....but whaterver, I made this post because I felt so inspired by the movie and the 90s culture, black people, gangster and fashion, so into that mood. Thanks all I guess. Kiss bitches! 
OH AND THAT'S EMILIO!

The beauties in black at the 23rd Producers Guild Awards

Black is undoubtedly the most mystical and powerful color. Its authoritative appeal creates a magnificent aura where the beauty shines brilliantly. The same black has lightened up the Producers Guild Awards through its adorable elegance. The 23rd Producers Guild Awards evidenced the black parade on red carpet. Most of the celebrities at the award function opted for black color for the evening.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie who continued to flaunt her charismatic style draped a black lace Michael Kors pre fall 2012 column gown for the evening bash. The actress turned director chosen a softer, sultry style for the event. She was all black with loose, relaxed hairstyle. Her simple black earrings, handbag and open pumps were complementing her chic style. After her sensational pearl white and red looks for the Golden Globes, this was Angie’s another striking sparkling dominant red carpet arrival.

And like the white shades of Globes, there were many shades of black. The tinsel beauties had put their eyes on black for the big event. Sofia Vergara’s blue mermaid and diamond looks were replaced with a sequin knee length sensational dress which elegantly showed off her svelte figure. She added hefty dangling gemstone earrings and a antique style cuff to complete her red carpet looks.

Sofia Vergara’s and Evan Rachel Wood

Another blonde beauty in black at the event was Evan Rachel Wood who went for a sensual style for the evening. She was dressed in a black suit with black earrings and a silvery black handbag. Jessica Chastian was another lady in black. She donned a floor sweeping noodle strip shoulder sequin gown which she accessorized with teardrop green gemstone earrings. Her half up and half down hair do was adding more beauty to her style.

Ellie Kemper and Jessica Chastain

Alicia Keys, Ellie Kemper, Shailene Woodley and Paula Wagner were other lovelies dressed in black for the award event.

The starlets kept minimal accessory for the event but gemstone earrings were the part of their new flairs. From simple studs to designer dangles and teardrops, different gemstone earrings made a radiant arrival on the red carpet and they beautifully complimented the fashion senses of the tinsel beauties.

Note. I want to apologise for the lack of text in recent months. I guess I haven't felt as compelled to write here as much as I used to and find images more beneficial for myself just in terms of inspiration and reminding me of things.
