Collaboration with ToSave.comCollaboration With A while back, I couldn’t go a week without purchasing new items of clothing or accessories.But I seriously had to rethink my shopping habits.So now I try to maximize my styling abilities with different styles for different occasions.

Except in those situations where an item is just so inexpensive and one can’t help but indulge.Like recently when contacted me for a styling on some of my chosen pieces from their website.

From which I got the top I styled here and 2 other looks that will follow.


Skirt: Joseph similar Calvin Klein or Budget Topshop

Trousers: Zara similar WareHouse or on Budget Boohoo

Shoes: Love those Aldo or try the Kurt Geiger

Collaboration With is a shopping website where you can get anything from clothing to gadgets, to beauty products…Let’s just say a simplified version of eBay.

I received the items within 2 weeks from the order date from And honestly, I did not know what quality to expect especially since the prices on the website are quite cheap.

Also, initially I wanted to make a youtube video haul on this, so let me know if it is something you would like to see.

When buying from such sites, I will usually get a size bigger just in case it doesn’t fit true to size(which usually happened ). So, I was quite surprised at how the items actually fitted.

Here I styled the blouse in a very chic street style way with bright colors at the bottom. PS: What do you think of how I woe this trousers and skirt here? Get the top here:Blouse .

London Fashion Week Mens.Happy New year dear readers. Starting the year with nothing less than London Fashion Week Men. That I attended for the first time last week.  I love men garments as they always seem to have classy cuts, durable materials, and neat finishes. Men’s fashion was not a priority of mine so far. But after working with some great clients last year, this fashion week was a perfect way forward refreshing and updating my knowledge of men’s fashion.London Fashion week Men/Modebycece

The shows took place in The Store Studios at 180 Strand which is the hub for activity during London Fashion Week Men’s. The venue houses the main BFC Show Space & Presentation space on the ground floor while the Designer Showrooms including ready-to-wear and accessories & DiscoveryLAB are located on the first floor.London Fashion week Men

After London Fashion Week Mens the shows, we attended an incredible presentation by Drifters. But what I loved the most, was the invitees’ sense of style. Probably one of the most fashionable party and the most creative crowd I have met under one roof so far.

  What I loved about her, was everything from her entry to her outfit and her allure.Literally, this look, made me fall in love with fashion and creativity all over again. I mean that latex Kimono is just genius, those micro glasses, the red satin boots, the faux fur and that corset ohh!! She gave me life as they will say on Instagram.

Karen Gold lookbook styling: Backstage.
Fashion styling at work
These past few months have been a roller coaster. From work and private life to business and personal growth.

Since September, I have been styling nearly every week. On my previous post, here I wrote about what it takes to prepare a photoshoot (HERE)…One of my recent work was for Karen Gold. I was very much touched by her story and how she became a designer.

I love working with new designers as they put so much work and dedication into their creations and generally don’t get as much exposure or recognition.  But when I saw how dedicated Karen was; from how she sources her fabrics the little touches, she adds to her designs. I was pleased to work with her and style her lookbook.

Karen Gold (KG) is a contemporary British brand that caters to the aspirational man and woman who value their individuality and freedom of choice. Their simple modern designs embody a passion for life and success and showcase effortless style with clean minimal sharp tailored trans-seasonal pieces with rich colours and visual appeal.

Karen Gold reflects a sense of timeless elegance focusing on fine fabrics and the perfect fit with the aim to boost the wearer confidence. So it was down to me to showcase this through the scenery I chose for the lookbook. Which you can see here with these pictures we took behind the scenes.

For my personal style,  the prints came out to the max. As I have been challenging myself to wear them as much as possible and I really feel my style evolving, I am getting more and more experimental. I guess that ‘s what fashion is all about. The constant need to create and reinvent oneself.

Get the look or similar items below and don’t be afraid to play with prints.

PS: The models where absolutely great and they truly sold those blazers to me.
