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.

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.
Both, me and Kätriin are wearing head-to-toe denim looks by GUESS.

Talk to you soon, XX
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
Hey dears! I’ve been on vacation. I’ve been enjoying my time off and travelling. A lot. I never planned to be absent for so long as I was supposed to be away for just two weeks. But hey, I love spontaneous decisions and that’s why I ended up travelling for more than a month. 4 countries, 10+ cities, 15 flights and endless amount of precious memories with special people in special places. I am rested, happy and thankful.
I am really sorry but I don’t have that much content to share with you as I literally wanted to have some rest and didn’t even plan on making a single blog post from my travels. That’s why I decided to leave my laptop and camera at home and just enjoy my time off. But then I though it would be nice to catch up after being absent for so long and at least share some snaps from my phone and Instagram with you guys.
So there you go. Here’s a small summary of my month-long travels.
Bonsoir mes chéries! What could be better than a long weekend getaway in Paris? In May? With your best friend? We’ve been planning (and postponing) this trip for really long, so I couldn’t be happier that we finally did it. End of May is the best time to visit Paris as weather is just perfect – not too hot for endless city strolls during the day and not too cold for cozy dinners on the terraces at night.
As Paris is THE place to bring your prettiest dresses and the highest heels, I couldn’t miss my chance and took my favourite pieces with me. One of them was simple wrap dress by Guess that I spiced up with some statement accessories and sky high heels. Of course those pictures had to be taken at our oh-so-green and pretty inner courtyard. Bienvenue!
Like there’s no Spain without tapas or England without happy-hour – there’s no Italy without aperitivo. Aperitivo stands for glorious couple of hours between 7-9 pm, where one can spend some quality time with their friends, accompanied with drinks and finest selection of snacks. Aperitivo is served everywhere, so it is totally up to you whether you want to go for relaxed vibe at some hidden local gem or a bit fancier atmosphere at gorgeous hotels, restaurants or their terraces. We spent our first night at Sheraton Diana Majestic and the other nights at Bulgari.
Aperitivo was a perfect occasion to dress up and wear my favourite bandage dress from Marciano.
We decided to capture the moment at one of the most iconic places in Milan – Galleria Vittoria Emanuele II. Outfit details below.
Hello dears! I wanted to share some fun (or maybe not so fun) behind the scenes of our seemingly oh-so-perfect pictures from Milan. As I already mentioned before, our trip was quite hectic, since our “to-do” list was long and schedule was tight. We had several shoots to be done – two of them were planned for Saturday. All was good until we saw the weather forecast – it was 100% chance of shower rain starting 11am. And we had to shoot summer outfits for Guess (outfit details and links at the end of the post). On the streets of Milan. With the perfect “summer vibe” and all that stuff. What we got instead was grey sky, shower rain and 14 degrees. Not so summerish, right?
The only solution was to shoot early in the morning, before 11 am when the rain was supposed to start. So we set our alarm at 6 am to get ready and head over to Navigli district – a lovely Milanese area with two canals and lots of restaurants alongside the promenade. It was cold, we had heavy bags full of other outfits with us, we could sense the upcoming rain in the air, we didn’t have time for breakfast and our feet were hurting (and literally bleeding) from all the walking – I was wearing heels for 15 hours straight the day before haha. Anyways, I’m not whining here, just sharing the story behind these pictures.
As Estonians say, lõpp hea, kõik hea. We managed to have our shoot done JUST before the shower rain started. We changed to some warmer clothes (in the bathroom of a random store) and celebrated our morning with croissants, coffee and “Despacito” dance at a random cafe – the local guys were nice enough to let us in and prepare some good Italian espresso alongside with Despacito, Subeme La Radio and La Mortidita tunes.
10 am latino party at a closed cafe, why not? XX
