“Do I look stylish?”, “Do I have a style?”, “Can I change my style?” and “What is style?” these are the questions we have in mind, but afraid to ask. What is it about having a specific style is so much important? Being in my 20s and having my life change dramatically every year, I still do not have a particular style I can refer to. My style is something in between classic, parisian and minimalist. But do I have to fit in the borders of certain style? I don’t think so, at least for now. Because 20s are for exploring the world, acknowledging yourself and becoming who you are (I wish I’ll be more sure about who I’m in this life in my 30s). I have my worst looks I regret, I have the ones I’m embarrassed even to talk about and this is ok. Fashion is all about trying and finding who you are.
In between exploring the world, take some time and read books from the ones who experienced all of that and have a lot of professional advice I found very helpful.
One of the latest books about style “Love,Style,Life” by Garance Dore has the best tips for everyday life, because style is all about you and your life (visit lovestylelife.com for a little preview of the book).

During my little absence in virtual word I was in Berlin. The city that has the darkest history in the last century. Even with little knowledge of the past the spirit of bad incidents accompanied me through the city. The famous names of modern architecture such as Peter Eisenmen and Daniel Libeskind left their marks following the history of Berlin. There is also an influence of Bauhaus and its directors Walter Gropius and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the architecture of the city.
Finally, iWatch is available for all of us. A new generation of “watches” now spreading all over the world. But is everyone going to betray a classic wrist watch? I don’t think so and many of you will agree with me. Over the years a watch became a jewellery valued more for its aesthetic appeal and mechanical engineering than timekeeping. People are not wearing watches to tell time, watch is a symbol of something special. As much as iWatch is clever enough to ease life, a dream of owning gorgeous timepiece that can be passed down though generations is not going anywhere. Don’t underestimate the power of tradition.
