Welcome to 2012! Instead of new year’s resolutions, which I don’t like to make (call me superstitious, but I’d rather hope for something and work to make it happen than talk about my plans and dreams), I would like to start this year with a reminder about style. About knowing what looks good on you, showing confidence and finding your own unique style. And simplicity is what represents me best. The simpler the cut, the more natural the colour, the plainer the print, the better. This doesn’t mean that I don’t like to try something new or even surprising from time to time or that I’m not interested in trends or in how fashion constantly changes. But it’s so much easier to welcome change when you know yourself well.
Wishing you a wonderful and stylish start of the year!
