HELLO. It’s been a long time, I know I know. The thing is I’ve been travelling between Tallinn and Paris quite often within past couple of months, so whenever I’m back home in Estonia, I have loads of work to do, projects to run and things to catch up with. I am also taking French classes now and have renewed my membership at Arigato after half a year of not working out, so I literally can’t remember the last time I’ve had just-chill-all-day kind of day. But hey, I’m not whining at all, as I looove being super busy and this is what keeps me running and motivated!
Last Sunday, I had my make up done at MAC for an event in the evening, so I decided to finally take some time during the day, go for a walk in my favourite park – Kadriorg, and also shoot some outfit photos for the blog with an amazing photographer Rauno Liivand.
The ones who know me well know that leopard is my favourite print. Ever. So I literally fell in love when I first saw this faux fur coat at GUESS. And then I found the perfectly matching faux fur hat and a shoulder bag. Also, this season is all about red, so I decided to spice up this already extravagant look with even more colour – the red turtle neck with military-style golden buttons. The whole look is so Russian and so… me haha. Outfit and makeup details below.

Hey people! Tallinn was all about beauty and fashion over the weekend as we had two major events happening – Tallinn Fashion Week and a yearly beauty fair. The only issue is that weather didn’t really care about the whole fashion thing going, meaning that all the planned photoshoots had to be postponed or cancelled due to constant rain and darkness. My mood was completely off too, so I ended up attending only two days of TFW to see the Silver and Golden Needle awards on Wednesday and Iris Janvier and Tallinn Dolls shows on Thursday. I decided to spend the rest of my weekend with friends and family to catch up after my short getaways to Paris and Marbella.
As you may have noticed – this fall is all about oversized knitwear to me and I think my knitwear collection is growing a bit too fast haha (beware there are even more knit outfit posts to come). Oversized knits can be worn in soo many different ways and I think I can never get tired of them. It’s totally up to you whether to combine knits with traditional bottoms, or spice up your look and wear them as a dress with over-the-knee boots. This time I decided to wear a cosy grey knit with tights and add some colour to this 50-shades-of-grey weather with a baby pink coat and tri-coloured fur scarf. Outfit details and shopping links below.

You can rarely see me wearing so many different colours in one outfit haha. But this pastel palette made me feel all cute, fluffy and warm aand my grey mood changed instantly. For the better!

Hi dears! I couldn’t be happier to finally share this with you – here it is – our London Fashion Week vlog.
This was very unexpected to both of us as we didn’t plan on making any vlogs from our London trip whatsoever (or any other kind of vlogs in the near future). However, things happen, Estonian channel TV3 wanted us to film some bits from fashion shows and share some fashion week BTS with them. So we ended up having loads of good material that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves. That’s why me and Kätriin decided to put this all together into our first ever proper vlog. 5 days, 2 girls. LFW. And I am super happy we did it. Enjoy.
Outfit details with all the shopping links:

It was the last day of London Fashion Week, we had Dior event planned for the evening, it was Kätriin’s birthday coming up in couple of days. We were exhausted, tired, but really happy and overwhelmed by (positive) emotions. Like in Milan or in early summer, it has become somewhat a tradition for us to celebrate small and big moments in our life with some bubbles and Moet & Chandon.
And London was no exception. There were so many reasons to celebrate after such long and intense week, so the best and only logical option was to dress up and pop some mini bottles of Moet Brut Imperial Rose to recall all that has happened within the past week. To take some time off and enjoy the moment, you know.
As I’ve already mentioned it was my first fashion week and the whole experience has been a blast. I would have never thought that we’ll see Hailey, Alessandra or Winnie walking the shows, or Paul Costelloe complimenting us in person. And Roberta Einer. Seeing her presentation live left me speechless. She has come so far and I couldn’t be more proud of this young woman and her achievements. Cheers to that!

I couldn’t be more happy that in May we made this decision to come to LFW. And that we actually did it. I love pushing myself out of comfort zone and it really was a great challenge and experience to make everything happen on our own.
Mission accomplished. Til the next time, London.
Paris, I’ll see you soon. XX
The final day and my final look from London Fashion Week. With Gucci starting the trend, we all know that embroidery has been a thing for quite a while now and it’s growing even more. Shirts, leather jackets jeans, accessories and footwear – embroidery is smoothly taking over the whole world (read: wardrobe) and can be found literally anywhere, on anything. And GUESS’s New Collection is no exception.
Of course my heart was stolen when I first saw this “Romantic Rebel” faux leather jacket with it’s stunning floral embroidery. And as soon as I spotted the rose print maxi dress, I knew I have a perfect match without even trying on the look. Fun fact is that this leather jacket + dress combination is now on all GUESS window installations, all around the world. Pretty much nailed it haha.

Rise and shine! I am writing this post at 4:30 am London time thanks to insomnia and because this is the only free moment I’ve had since Tuesday morning. Anyway, our fourth day at London Fashion Week i.e. Monday was the highlight of the whole week and a definition of emotional rollercoaster. Let me start from the very beginning.
Although me and Kätriin are quite different and each one of us has her own sense of style, we do have a similar taste when it comes down to statement pieces and accessories. We realized this when we first met at Moët Chandon photoshoot – both of us were wearing the very same Louis Vuitton Alma BB bags and Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses in blue. And we all know that when it comes to fashion weeks, the biggest nightmare of each and every fashionista is to see someone wearing the very same outfit as you are.
But not for us. As we were picking our LFW outfits from GUESS stores in Tallinn, we both fell in love with the very same kimono sets. Neither of us was willing to give up the outfit to another. At some point the only solution was to leave both of the kimonos in the store and pick something else. Until the moment we realized: why not pull of the “twinning” move and wear the very same outfits to London Fashion Week. Both of us… A bit crazy, but why not give it a try?
The result? I would have never imagined we will get so many compliments and attention out of all the crowd, bloggers and celebrities attending fashion shows. The biggest honour was to be complimented by Paul Costelloe himself at the presentation of his collection at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel. The legendary British designer and one of princess Diana favourites. Mindblown.
We ended our day with the stunning Julien Macdonald catwalk show, which left me completely speechless. I didn’t expect to see Winnie Harlow, Hailey Baldwin and Alessandra Ambrosio rocking the catwalk in gorgeous, luxurious, every-girls-dream kind of gowns and dresses. What a night to remember.
It’s 5.00 am now. I’m off. XX

London Fashion Week has been on since Friday and we’ve been running around like crazy ever since. 5 30 am wake ups, two-three photoshoots per day; shows, presentations and other events. Every minute of our day is planned and we literally don’t have a single moment off. I’m having a bags-under-my-eyes-are-Prada kind of situation right now, but it’s totally worth it as the whole experience has been a blast so far.
If you want to see everything through our eyes in real time, make sure to keep an eye on @denimdreamstores Instagram, as me and Kätriin we’ll be taking it over their page and stories for the next three days. And obviously I am posting regularly on my Instagram too.
And now… Let me introduce you our head-to-toe denim sets that we decided to wear on Day Three of LFW. Outfit details below.

Greetings from LONDON! My happy place, my favourite city, my second home. No, it’s not just another trip to London town. I’m here to work. In fact, we are here to work. Me and Kätriin have been working on this project for so long and I couldn’t be more excited about the whole trip. We are here for our first ever London Fashion Week. Stay tuned, there’s loads to come.
Let me introduce you my first outfit that I wore on a regular day, as we arrived couple of days before the start of LFW. As mentioned in my previous post about cosy knits – what I love the most about early fall is that there are so many different ways to play around with knitwear. Fashion tip alert! This stunning “oversized” jumper is actually a regular jumper that I simply bought in size XL and decided to wear as an off-shoulder dress.
You would have never guessed it, right?

Have a nice weekend! XX
Hello! I guess everyone can admit that our weather has been a mess lately. Each and every morning starts with the same old “I don’t know what to wear” kind of problem. As they say in every chaos there is an opportunity, right? So I’ve been making the most out of this crazy weather as it is just perfect time to play around with layering and wear all kind of knits and cardigans. In many different ways.
One of my favourite looks is the combination of oversized knit, scarf, any kind of leggings and some comfy sneaks. You can take off the scarf if it gets too hot and put it back on when it’s starts pouring rain… or whatever the Mother Nature comes up with. Simple and perfect outfit for running around between work and meetings. Outfit details below.

BYE summer. September is here and autumn has officially arrived. This means loaaaads of press events, store openings and new collection presentations for the upcoming season. It was my honour to discover invitation to Polhem PR Press Day in my mailbox just when I arrived back from Marbella (read more about my month-long travels here). Of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity to attend the event and get familiar with what’s going to be IN (and OUT) this fall.
Super serious fashion blogger discussion going on here with Mr. Fokin & Ms. Kübar
