Yay! So the first of my two L’Officiel stories that I shot back in August in Munich with the most amazing team is finally out.
I adore the eclectic styling with the mix of colours, prints and textures and was able to get into my quirky character easily thanks to Sigi’s hair and make-up. Totally considering cutting my hair short like this one day.

Rules of Style
1. Be yourself
2. You can never go wrong investing in classic pieces such as a white button down shirt or a pair of beautiful ankle boots. Classic pieces are called classic for a reason.
3. Don’t neglect the hair and the nails. Healthy hair and manicured nails will complete your outfit and elevate your style.
4. A good pair of shoes is a must. Once your shoes start to look scruffy, move on. No matter how much you love them.
5. Don’t be afraid to bend the rules and stand out. If you want to be irreplaceable you got to be different.
6. Buy what you like and what suits you first; then indulge yourself in trends.
7. And as Mademoiselle Chanel once said,”Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” Because more is less.
First fashion memory…
“I have always loved dressing up. As a kid I used to have a dress up box filled with party costumes and bits and pieces of my mom’s old clothing. It used to keep me entertained for hours!”
A green smoothie every morning! Besides that, staying out of the sun and drinking plenty of water all day, every day.
My non-fashion distraction…
Food!!! I’m food obsessed! I love eating it and cooking it. Inviting friends over for dinner and feeding them till they have to roll out of my house always makes me smile.
Required reading of the week…
I’ve just finished reading “Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness” by Susannah Cahalan and I couldn’t put the book down. It’s an autobiography and I don’t even like autobiographies. It was such an engrossing read and, unquestionably, an important book on both a human and a medical level.
Now I’ve moved onto “The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared” by Jonas Jonasson and I can’t stop giggling.
I’ll unwind with…
A glass of red wine. My naughty indulgence. That and white chocolate.
