What inspires your fashion choices? For me it is always about seeing outfits that have been well put together or just cool fashionable items worn by people – whether they are models walking down the catwalk or passersby walking down the street. Even though I only met the girl- Miss Daria Malyarova, whose awesome coat is featured in this post, once, when I stumbled upon these pictures on the Instagram I was inspired. And it wasn’t just about the super cool coat by DSquared that I immediately added to My (mental) Fashion Wish List, it was just as much about the way she wore it – with a brilliant smile, joyful attitude and bags of energy. Hence the inspired wisdom – whatever you are wearing, it is your mood and feelings that really make the look that bit extra special. So next time when you are trying on the outfit of the day, look at yourself in the mirror, smile and see it transform…
Enough of that, now back to the coat. Bright pink and orange colour blocking against classic cool of nude trench, this coat represents a great way to update essential pieces in your wardrobe making them hot and trendy. Sadly no matter how long I looked I was not able to find anywhere it was still in stock (if you do, give me a shout in the comments below). But to fulfill your interest, Farfetch.com, for example, was selling it for £707. To tell you the truth though, there are other options to get yourself a similar piece. If you are any good with your hands, get some colourful fabric and experiment with a classic trench yourself: it will turn out cheaper and give you a feeling of creative fulfillment!
Many thanks to Daria for letting me use these pictures.

I love ice skating! And of course being in love with fashion I never miss an opportunity to dress up – even if all I am doing is going to an ice rink (especially if the ice rink is located in Somerset House – famous London landmark which also hosts London Fashion Week).
This season one brand has taken ice skating fashion to all new level. DSQUARED have created high heel ice skating boots. Tall, leather and all the way laced up I absolutely love them. Yet the fact they are made for ice skating and have blades on the sole is just very odd. I can never imagine actually using them – wearing high heels 24/7 is definitely not my thing and in this particular situation wearing heels seems like an absolute madness. Yet I can totally see celebrities like Victoria Beckham, who are never seen in flats, wearing them to a day on ice rink with little Beckhams!
Why is it on My Fashion Wish List then, you might ask? Well, even though I would never use them I would absolutely love to have them in my collection as a piece of shoe art – the design is creative, unique and will go down in fashion history. And if that does not qualify them as a piece of art I don’t know what does.
Purchase them from http://www.luisaviaroma.com for £1665.
