style inspiration : ballerina girl


It’s a time of transition between summer and autumn, when days aren’t warm enough to be able to freely slip on some white shorts and a marl gray tee without needing a cashmere cardigan and some biker boots, but aren’t cold enough to layer on a beautiful camel coat over a pair of jeans and a ribbed knit sweater without seeming entirely out of place. It is however, the ideal time to emulate Jessica Alba and her impossibly chic ballerina-inspired look . . .

Nothing makes the combination of pink & black more perfect than attending Ralph Lauren’s S/S 2014 fashion show in the most feminine yet slightly windswept chiffon skirt in a beautiful hue of misty rose paired with a black cropped ribbed jersey and strappy black heels; and just like Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a so-very-classic chignon [more inspiration here & here], along with diamond studs and cat-eye sunglasses . . .

And below, a little inspiration on chignons, fluttery georgette skirts and ballet flats, all in breathtaking apricot, ivory and peach tones . . .

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
