Total Black with a Touch of Gold

Total black with gold accents - a really convenient classic when I'm in a rush and have no time to think too long about what to wear. The skinny pants are a basic and the ruffled blouse adds a touch of romance, while the studded bag with leather tassels is a nice statement accessory, and besides, it's really practical. I matched my gold charm necklace and the black and gold feather earring to the rest of the look. How difficult is it to match black to gold, you might ask... Well, I needed an easy solution today :)

Fresh Natural Cosmetics by Ringana - Review

Unfortunately today many of the products we consume, be it food, drinks or even cosmetics, need to have a shelf life of years, which sort of really scares me. Imagine the amount of conservatives that go into a tub of face cream that is made today and can be used for another 30 months...

Jewel Tones for Lunch

This is what I wore to our usual Sunday lunch by the sea. I went for a slightly more dress up look this time (considering the place and the late hour) with jewel tones and high heels. I love emerald and amethyst together, I think they complement each other really well even for day, and are definitely perfect for evening. I wore this big balloon shaped coat to protect me from the wind, which was so strong, by the way, that we had to take most of the pics indoors. Some of you might already be familiar with my bag of the moment, which I totally love and will probably keep wearing until it falls apart :) xx

The Streets of Portofino

portofino fashion anett kovats

Two days ago me and hubs headed up to the South of France for a meeting and on the way there we stopped in Portofino to shoot these pics. As you can see, I dressed really comfortably for the long trip: rolled up boyfriend jeans, a pair of ballet flats, a printed tee and a black leather jacket. To add a pop of color to the look I wore this fringed pink ombre scarf I found in my closet. This outfit was a smart choice, because in the evening the temperature suddenly dropped, but I was able to insert and extra layer (cardigan) between the tee and the jacket.

Out and About Florence

A casual outfit for a day of errands - an oversized sweater, skinny jeans and a fun bag. Electric blue is a great statement color and it is really easy to dress up or dress down. Today I accessorized it with a contrasting ivory necklace, white boots and a white bag with leather and suede flower appliques which I got at the Antiques Mall in Las Vegas. Love that place, you can find real treasures there if you're lucky. I can actually thank them for a large part of my vintage Barbie collection. Can't wait to read your comments on my outfit! :)

Back to My Roots

As you might have guessed, today's outfit is a homage to my Russian heritage. I had fun wearing this floral vintage Versace scarf, typical of the traditional Russian costume, braiding my hair and painting my lips an intense blood red. The bag, a no brand which I really like anyway, picks up one of the colors of the scarf - grass green, a shade I'm really loving this spring. The rest of the look is total black - I didn't really feel like overcomplicating it, instead I preferred to put the focus on the two key pieces: the scarf and the bag. I'm so curious what you think about this look!

Campo di Margherite

I've been on forced vacation for the last couple of days because my computer had some terrible malware that affected my browsers, so I didn't have internet access... I obviously have a lot of catching up to do, but in the meanwhile I'll share with you this outfit, which is, once more, inspired by spring - the green grass and the blooming flowers. I'm just so happy it finally arrived, even though we didn't have a real winter this year here in Tuscany. Still, you can feel spring in the air when it arrives.

Spring Sunshine

I've been think about doing a black and white photo shoot for a while, and today's out fit seemed like a good opportunity: a mostly monochromatic look focused on the accessories - a crochet beret, a wide patent leather belt, a pair of high suede boots, my favorite sunnies and about a hundred bangles. I really like the effect of b/w pictures, and with today's spring sunshine they came out especially interesting. What do you think?

My New PRAIO Jeans

Remember when a few weeks ago I told you how I hated shopping for jeans? A long, difficult and tiresome process which I usually try to avoid at all costs. Now imagine my immense joy (and surprise) when I received a package from Praio last Friday, and found inside a pair of jeans that was perfect in every way! How is it even possible? Without trying them on beforehand, I mean... Anyway, they really impressed me - great construction, perfect fit and super soft fabric ("INDIGO PRAIO", the brand's innovation). But what I like most about them is the comfort: they are so light that I can't even feel them! There are no uncomfortable seams, no rubbing at the waist or hips. It's like wearing a pair of sweatpants, except you're wearing a nice pair of jeans.

On Stormy Seas

A rainy and windy day in Porto Venere on the Tyrrhenian Sea. I opted for a very casual outfit - skinny jeans tucked into riding boots, a white cashmere sweater and my fur trimmed indigo blue winter coat. Porto Venere is one of the most beautiful places in Italy -
