What to wear to hospital

In a few weeks I have to go to hospital to have a non-life threatening but necessary operation. My doctor did a fine job in advance to explain to me all the medical intricacies, making sure all my worries and apprehension are removed as much as possible. And she offered to answer any question I … Continue reading

Things Everyone Must Experience At Least Once In Life

There are certain things one has to do and experience in one’s lifetime. The Internet is full of lists of things everybody has to experience before one dies, and so on. Normally I don’t have such bucket list that I work off, nor do I spend much thought on things I want to experience at … Continue reading

Shopping mania

Just recently (or not so recently) I went to London for business and tagged on a day of shopping. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while – go to Bicester Village which promises to be another shoppers haven. The way to do it really is to book the Chauffeur Drive, which is a luxury … Continue reading

London calling

I am a lot in London these days – on business. However, there is always a little bit of time here and there to do some shopping and go into the city. I absolutely adore London, however, Londoners are a bit funny in some ways. The other day when I was at Selfridges for a … Continue reading


So while being in London one of these many times, I got the chance to have dinner at this absolutely beautiful place called Great Fosters (http://www.greatfosters.co.uk/). I enjoyed it so much that I have to rave about it here. And if you get a chance, go there and have dinner, or better still, stay overnight … Continue reading

A little gem

Recently, my travels continued. This time they brought me to the German town of Stuttgart and the nearby shopping haven of Metzingen. Located there are, among others, a ginormous Hugo Boss outlet, a fabulous Ralph Lauren store (it is three stories, and the whole top floor is dedicated to bath and home ware), a Burberry … Continue reading

Hot for tomorrow

Given that I just traveled to the future and back, I know already what’s gonna be hot tomorrow and what is a must have staple for the seasons to come. I just recently traveled to Australia, and one firm belief that I have is that fashionwise they are always ahead of the game. In this … Continue reading

Is it Winter yet?

After a quick stint to the Arctics I did the opposite not long thereafter – I went to Australia for a bit of sun and warmth – and observed the same as in Lapland – clothes for the wrong season. In the case of Australia, where it is summer now (and temperatures of 30+ degrees … Continue reading

Is it Spring yet?

For a couple of years now I have noticed a fashion world phenomenon. A few years back I went skiing in Colorado in January, and as part of the package I did a day of retail therapy at an outlet village. That particular day it was snowing like crazy and the temperature hovered around -5 … Continue reading

On the road again

Over the past week, I have been traveling again. In a relatively short period of time I went to Frankfurt, London, and Madrid. Naturally I did a lot of fashion spotting and comparing, and London comes out as the winner by far. I have to say that London inspires me a great deal. Anything goes … Continue reading
