5 piece french wardrobe update #2 // editor's note

Read Article →

Well, well, well. How am I going to start? First let me apologize for my absence. I was trying to figure out in what direction ktinka is heading. I think the time has come to share my thoughts with you. The thing is: My 5 piece (french) wardrobe thing is working out great. Also, I am more convinced than ever that the time for slow fashion has come. (Isn't it endless consumption that leads to exploitation of people and resources?) To limit myself gave me space and defined my style. So what's the catch? Well, the question is: Can I still be a fashion blogger then?

'Tis the season! Christmas is knocking on the door. This year my other half and I plan to spend the holidays all on our own. Just the two of us. Watching old movies, listening to old Christmas songs and on Christmas Eve we will cook together and exchange (small) gifts. All that preferable in PJs. How about you? I'm curious to know ...

5 piece french wardrobe update #1

Read Article →

Almost a year ago I decided to start the famous 5 piece french wardrobe thing. Do you remember the rules? Here we go. Theory: The idea is to buy just 5 new items each season. Since there are just two seasons in fashion (let's believe in "slow fashion", shall we?) that's exactly 10 pieces per year. Basics (like socks, undies, etc.) and accessories don't count. Shoes and bags do. I think now it's a good time to sum up the last 12 month...

I was overjoyed when the UPS guy brought me a packet from Daniel Wellington the other day. DW watches are so minimalistic and unpretentious, I'm deeply smitten! I don't wear watches very often and not necessarily for keeping time, but as accessories. DW watches have such a classic design to them, don't you think? I love the classic look, so chic! If you like this watch, you can get ...

Several Fashion Houses (Saint Laurent and Chanel among them) made socks kind of the new statement piece and have even brought them on the runway. With the temperatures dropping socks now become a necessity. But how to style them? Charlotte from THEFASHIONGUITAR knows ...

show me your hands

Read Article →

With the temperature dropping I'm in need of some extra beauty care. A good hand cream is definitely part of my winter beauty survival guide. Is there anything worse than dry, irritated and chapped hands? Over the years I have tried several hand creams and hand lotions. Mostly I chose the one in the most beautiful packaging or with most adorable smell. Far wrong!
