The new city lights

Although I have tried to travel as much as I could, explore new places and step out of my comfort zone for the past couple of years, changing the postcode was always temporary and had an expiration date. This time, however, I decided to do otherwise, and take the plunge. I changed not only the city but also the country. No pre-established returning date needed. Something tells me, that here, in Valencia, my collection of sunglasses will expand quite a bit whilst the chunky sweaters and coats will be at the bottom of the closet for most of the time.

Jungle In The Heart Of The City

There are some places that don’t necessarily require us to even go out of town and yet make us feel like we are hundreds of miles away. We often visit local cafes and cinemas and we rather ignore the nearest attractions. I try to go against such thinking occasionally exploring the nearest area. Inspired by the exotic character of the Palm House, I chose a shirtwaist dress with a rather loose cut that I associate with film-style jungle crossings and a pair of heels with the snake motif which I bought years ago. Minimalist, silver accessories complemented the whole outfit. I’m sure this wasn’t my last visit to this beautiful place and I will make more than one project here.

Say no to grey

Winter temperatures bring a change in both our mood and closet. What’s interesting, these two seemingly unrelated things have a significant impact on each other. Somehow we avoid cheerful or expressive colors almost with the same reluctance as standing in the cold. Our Polish tendency to choose subdued colors is even deeper during this period and makes the streets grayer. However, without going to the extremes, we can revive our look by choosing accessories or one particular item in a bright color. I chose a canary coat. Simple as that. It definitely can bring you closer to spring.

Valencia, little Paris on Spanish coast

There is no Eiffel Tower, but there are palms, there is no La Défense, but there are Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias – although Paris and Valencia seem to be extremely different cities, I have found many common features in them.

Does the coat make the man?

The power of individual style is reflected in our personality more often than we even think. Not without reason, the old saying, “Fine feathers make fine birds”, still works. Regardless of our opinion on that subject, the clothes are an integral part of the personality in the same way as they...

Golden season, golden tower

Living in a new place always entails many captivating occurrences; starting off deliberately throwing yourself into the experience of getting lost in some narrow streets, discovering your favorite places or simply ending up in places where you never wanted to. I absolutely love the second aspect, meaning, finding your favourite spots, especially when it happens by chance. I still remember my favorite café in Milan, which reminded me of Truman Capote's "Breakfast at Tiffany's", it was not popular nor beautiful, most of the signiori came to talk about sports, the students were coming for the brioches and espresso quickly sipped at the bar counter, but I loved this place and its cappuccino. For me, that bar has some elusive quality. That is the beauty of discovering the favorite spots, you can't always tell exactly why you love the particular place, you just keep coming back and enjoying it every single time.
