Patch denim is assuming my whole outfit scene – See more on my Instagram – one attire at a time. I slipped this pair from the Jacob Cohen show room before London Fashion Week and hardly have taken them off. I know I’ve got to stop now but I would have infinite ways in mind to keep styling them.

Call me a lucky girl. I basically grew up in a hair salon.
My mother being a hair stylist, her salon is where I used to spend my afternoons after school observing ladies updating their hair style to the latest trend, getting spoiled by everyone being the little girl of the salon and cutting the hair of my infinite barbie collection. All my barbies had short and coloured hair!! Scary!!
Everyone was expecting me to follow my mother into her profession but I grew up more as a fashionista and affectionate to my father’s credit card before getting a proper job eheh ..
What stayed towards the years it’s what I then named the Nicky’s Day! It’s that day a month totally dedicated to pumpering myself!
Every time I visit Italy I lock myself up at my mother’s salon spending my day getting hair cut, hair colour, bit of gossip here and there (hey! I need all the updates since I live abroad now!!), mani pedi and so it goes.. Paradise!!
Since I moved to London years ago, it didn’t even crossed my mind to drop good habits.
This week the Nicky’s Day has been looking like paying a visit to Selfridges ground floor, taking a look on what’s new and ending up in make up shopping (credit cards ‘good habits’ haven’t dropped either), visiting the nail salon then of my favourites hairdresser in London ‘Vidal Sasson’.
Outcome?! Bank account much lighter ..Urghh! Hair a bit shorter ..Big smile on my face!
Definitely to be tried!!

I THOUGHT I’D SHARE WITH YOU THIS PHOTO WE’VE TAKEN YESTERDAY JUST BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE MAJE FASHION NIGHT OUT PARTY IN LONDON.
MADLY ENOUGH, WHEN I GO THROUGH MY BLOG, IT LOOKS LIKE I DON’T WORK BUT JUST HANG OUT AROUND LONDON all day. EVEN IF THIS IDEA APPEALS A LOT TO ME.. MOST OF MY PICTURES ARE TAKEN DURING THOSE SHORT INSTANTS I’M NOT WORKING HARD OR DURING MY DAYS OFF. LUCKILY i enoy MY JOB and it GETs FUN LIKE LAST NIGHT HOSTING THE FASHION NIGHT OUT at the maje store in south molton street WHICH WAS A GREAT SUCCESS! we had a photo booth which became the main attraction and people were queueing all over the store while enjoying the collection.
I SUPPOSE WHEN YOU PASS SO MUCH TIME WORKING HARD INDOORS YOU NEED TO WORK JUST AS HARD AT PLAYING AROUND THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY! AND ABOUT THAT ..I AM COLLABORATING WITH MARRIOTt TO A VERY FUN PROJECT! ..SOON MORE DETAILS!! more snaps on my instagram @nickyinsideout Inside out the look: top: Maje (here) | Pants: maje (here) | shoes: similar here
Luckily, my outfit pick for Day 2 of LFW SS15 was quite a stress-free choice. Prior to the event, I went to the London Jacob Cohen offices in Mayfair where I fell in love with this combo. A big question mark persisted on the shoes to style it with .. You know I never say no to shoes shopping so it was finally time to make the Nike Airforce 1 mine! (Thank you Selfridges for the late opening hours!!)
The outfit turned out to be infinitely comfortable and suiting perfectly my beloved colour palette of blues and whites.
My obsession for a sport chic look paid off on a feature on Cosmopolitan best street styles .. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

My first outfit for LFW was all about my new Jacob Cohen denim (turns out my favourite denim on the market!) with an awesome pair of pointy loafers by Miu Miu and an Acne Studios cropped sweater I instantly fell in love with when it hit the stores.
I really maintained my style of dressing for comfort and mobility-much needed especially for these days around the shows. Happily, sticking to my guns, I scored some points in the street style interest!
Since I found what people are wearing to the shows just as fascinating as the models on the runway, my next post will be a visual diary of all the photos of the street style I have taken. I want to show you the photos of everything I’ve been up to, the people I met and the styles I found interesting.
