Natalia Alaverdian Fashion Editor Harper’s Bazaar: Monday Muse AWAKE Dress Giraffe

Natalia Alaverdian is a true Global citizen.

I say that not because she happens to travel to most Fashion weeks around the world but Natalia Alaverdian seems to carry a bit of everywhere in her!

If you are a Street Style addict, this demure Belgian/Armenian fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar Russia,must have caught your eye quite a few times. She is power-packed she is, coz not only is she responsible for the amazing Russian Fashion Magazine spreads, but is also the name behind her Fashion label called A.W.A.K.E  (short for All Wonderful Adventures Kindle Enthusiasm). So despite her pivotal role to play in Russian, Natalia Alaverdian has her label based in London..(Global Citizen point noted)

Natalia is quite petite,so no surprise the heels and the short length skirt/dresses provide the height to her frame,which is a great tip to take away,since I myself need to stretch my neck to grab everyone’s attention in a room full of people.

On contraire, the tailored pants floral pants teamed with long line coat and a high bun can do tricks a plenty for Natalia Alaverdian.

If you are inspired by her style, watch out for’s  “Get the Monday Look” feature coming in the New Year.

Talking about the New Year, today is the last day of 2012, how are you spending it?

Monday Muse: Peony Lim,Blogger


I have been following Peony Lim’s blog since I started blogging last year.

As an avid Blog-yeur (A person who loves to see other people blog), I spent the first few months of my blogging lifetime just observing what other bloggers were doing, and Peony, Caroline from Caroline’s World, Hedvig of The Northern Light were always inspirational with their unique styles.

Now if you follow my blog,you would know that I rather be behind the camera than in front,so I have a lot of respect for these ladies to look great in most of their pictures!

I went to the Grazia Live event in September where Peony was on the panel of Masterclass talking about how to take great Pictures,and she was a joy to listen to!

Starting her blog, by chance this Fashion Promotion student was encouraged by other street style photographers outside Somerset House (where her university was strategically based and was always clicked by other photographers) and thus the birth of peonylim.blogspot.

Always well styled and quite classic, I like how Peony brightens up a basic pair of jeans with accessories, like the Lavender Pom-Poms to her phone and clutch or the Linda Farrow Minnie Mouse Glasses with a classic Black-white outfit! (images below).

Her wardrobe staples usually include a Classic White Shirt, Red Lipstick and Classic Pumps. How versatile, and that is exactly how each of her looks are like. Edited to perfection yet versatile enough to go for high tea or a girls night out!

Dinky Talks with Luise Keller


I always like going back through my year’s folders of pictures I have clicked just to ensure I have not missed a certain post or a brand I wanted to cover but just forgot about it!

And I hit Jackpot (That way I feel less guilty of forgetting where I saved these pictures) with this folder! It was a trip to an exhibition where I met quite a few brands and designers and I guess,this Holiday Season your emails will be filled with great Designer Labels and upcoming brands to explore! What Joy!

Have a look at at Luise Keller’s website to see all these amazing jewellery in exquisite materials,all hand crafted in Germany.

You can see the distinct difference in the mood,colour and textures in the Autumn Winter range (Last 2) to the Spring Summer collection with great tropical influences.

Watch this space for more to be revealed:)

Christmas Stocking Fillers: Mark’s Tokyo Edge/Mark’s Europe


I came across Mark’s Europe for the first time in Scoop International London, and I can not tell you how many times it has saved my life for a last-minute presents!

Few of my friends in India have it too,which gives me so much joy. I got them for my photographer friend Simran of, Japna of What’s Cooking Good Looking Blog,Yogesh of Surendri fame and my favourite Mohits (Both of them!) and it went down a treat, I can assure you that!

Now That Christmas is around the corner (Exactly a week away),I have been going back to these as stocking fillers, with the neon grid masking tapes and Silicon Diaries which are available even at Urban Outfitters (Oxford Circus) now.

I love the “” A5 diaries/pocket planners coz they have a little clear pouch to store cards,a pencil, and even your phone.I find it easier to carry that when i go for conferences and seminars,and it is always a conversation starter!

Pick up your goodies from these 2 Online Stores: The Bureau Direct and The Paperie, however the Bureau direct has a better merchandise and great delivery time!

Monday Men: Justin O’Shea, Buying Director

"Justin O'Shea"

The first time I spotted Justin O’Shea was in the Sartorialist back in February 2011. I had just moved to London and had started then, and all I was hoping to do was spot Justin O’Shea casually walking around Covent Garden and click some great candid shots of him!!

Of course,since then everyone from Le 21em, to Citizen Couture to Phil Oh have had the pleasure of clicking some great shots of him!

Justin O’Shea was born and raised in a small Aussie Aboriginal town and upon moving to London, found his true calling! Being the worldwide Buying Director for, you can spot him globe-trotting during the Fashion Week season.

He is the perfect Biker-does-Saville-Row style, with his well-tailored (often if not) 3- piece suits, teamed with a printed shirt, showing a snippet of his ink playing a peek a boo! I love how he can team up the the vest and jacket from one set with trousers of another.I am usually never fond of half sleeves shirt on men, (My rule being If Hot,Suck it up or Roll it up),but he does the quarter sleeve just right (Of course being fit has a huge role to play!)

P.s: Special attention to the metal capped burgundy boots (Also featured in the video below).

Anyway, Thus presenting Justin O’Shea:
