After an exhausting roof drinking involving Corona Lights and some infamous Praguedogs we decided we needed a lot of food and where better to go than to Veselka for Saturday brunch? (especially if it's like two blocks from your apartment ;)
Po narocne noci stravene konzumaci Coron Light a nechvalne proslavenych Praguedog drinku na strese jsme se rozhodli ze nase tela potrebuji poradny brunch a kde se lepe najist v sobotu dopoledne nez ve Veselce dva bloky od nas?

Tuesday was a very special day for me. I attended my very first sample sale in New York. The brand I chose (yes there are sample sales of designer clothing/accessories every day) was nothing smaller Theory. I walked a couple blocks from Penn Station to one of those streets that has the cheesiest fabrics and accessories you can imagine and saw a crowd of mostly women lined up. Since we're experiencing the monsoon season here most women were in their office appropriate outfits and colorful wellies. We (my boyfriend and I) waited about 20min before the doorman let us in. Then we had to check in anything that could hide any possible bounty including jackets and the hunt could have started. The first thing I saw was a line for the cash registers and changing room but right around the corner there were racks and racks and racks of clothing. I was almost disappointed that everything was so organized, the racks were tagged with sizes and there was plenty of everything. I took several dresses and a blazer with me to the line for the changing room and stopped by the separate Theysken's Theory section. The changing space was a mess with racks to hang your stuff and not enough mirrors so women of all sizes and ages were showing their not so fit bodies in not so cute underwear. I was torn between a yellow ankle length dress (all dresses were discounted to $105!!) and Theysken's jacket (unfortunately Theysken's stuff was not as cheap) and guess what won...
Utery pro me bylo zasadni, protoze jsem sla na svoji prvni sample sale v New Yorku. Denne se tu poradaji slevy vzorku vsech moznych znacek, ale ja si vybrala Theory. Z Penn Station jsem usla par bloku a v jedne z tech ulic s nejkycovitejsimi doplnky a latkami se tvorila fronta prevazne zen v kancelarskem outfitu doplnenem holinkami (New York ma prave monzunove obdobi). Cekali jsme (David a ja) asi jen 20min a pak byli vpusteni dvernikem do druheho patra k satnam, kde jsme museli nechat vse, co by mohlo slouzit k propasovani nejakeho ulovku. A lov mohl zacit! Jenze on se zadny lov nekonal, po zavahani z fronty k pokladnam a zkusebnim kabinkam jsem videla jen more stendru s krasne vyrovnanym oblecenim a oznacenymi velikostmi. Vzala jsem si na vyzkouseni nekolik satu a sako a pri cekani okoukla Theysken's Theory sekci. Zkusebni prostor byla obrovska mistnost s mnoha stendry na odlozeni a nekolika zrcadly a zeny vsech tvaru a veku ukazovaly sva ne vzdy vysoustruovana tela ve vsemoznych kalhotkach. Nakonec jsem se rozhodovala mezi zlutymi saty ke kotnikum (vsechny saty slevneny na $109!) a Theysken's sackem. Copak jsem si nakonec asi odnesla...
Still in love. I'm still in love with New York. I'm still in love with my shoes. Most importantly I'm still in love with Alexander McQueen. His affection for death was fascinating. His imagination was endless. I'm amazed by how monumental his pieces were and how he managed to do something completely different for each of his collections. Anyone who is or will be in New York while the show lasts should definitely go because it isn't just an opportunity to see some of his pieces it is obvious how much effort people put into this show: each collection is shown in a corresponding environment, headpieces executed especially for this occasion, etc.

My last day in Prague in pictures. I'm wearing vintage Diesel shirt, Christian Dior bra, Mango skirt, DKNY shoes and Givenchy bag+cuff. I was styling for most of the day and I think it turned out pretty good (partly because I just decided to have fun with it). As for my last night in Prague the best mom in the world had two awesome surprises for me: a gift that I'll show you next time and invitation to the 27th floor at City Tower. There is a newly opened restaurant/bar with a unique Andy Warhol art piece. As a bonus to the spectacular view you get some best accessorized drinks in town. Check it out! Have a good weekend everybody and come back to see my next post made in NYC.
Muj posledni den v Praze obrazem. Vetsinu dne jsem stravila praci, styling jsem tentokrat pojala trochu odlehcenejsi formou a vic si hrala nez resila, jestli je to tak akorat a povedlo se. Vecer na me cekala hned dve prekvapeni od te nejlepsi maminky na svete :). O tom prvnim vam napisu priste, druhe bylo pozvani do nejvyssi restaurace/baru v Praze. Nove otevrena Aureole je uzasny zazitek nejen diky tomu vyhledu, ale taky jednoznacne nejvytunenejsim drinkum, jake jsem kdy mela. A jako bonus zde na omezenou dobu vystavuji dost vzacne dilo Andyho Warhola, takze pro me dokonala kombinace. Zdravim z Connecticutu, kde travim muj prvni americky vikend a pristi post uz bude made in New York.
The internationally renowned underwear brand Triumph has been searching for new talents through their "Inspiration Award" every year. The winner gets to cooperate with the brand on the new collection of Triumph underwear which I think is pretty exciting. I attended the final of the Czech Republic and I have to say it was rather disappointing to me. Especially the choice of the models was very unfortunate because the tricky pieces of lingerie revealing more then the model would want require pretty bodies. The size doesn't matter as much as the actual shape and that was a problem together with sometimes not so flattering cuts of the designer pieces. The fact that most of the models couldn't walk in heels was also a bit annoying to me. The final took place at Sasazu and the club was almost empty as there was absolutely no advertisement for this event and so not even the several Triumph fashion shows could save the overall feeling of no atmosphere and no excitement. I liked the winning piece from Vladimir Stanek called "Mirror of Beauty" however I as a stylist would definitely insist on different styling.
Svetoznama znacka spodniho pradla Triumph si do svych rad vybira kazdorocne nove talenty na soutezi "Inspiration Award". Vitez zastane funkci jednoho z navrharu nove kolekce a to uz stoji za to se snazit. Byla jsem se podivat na ceskem finale a konecny verdikt by znel asi takto: zklamani. Hlavnim problemem pro me byly ani ne tak velikosti modelek jako jejich tvary, do takto odhalujicich modelu jsou pekna tela vylozene nutnosti. Nutno podotknout, ze nektere soutezni outfity opravdu nepatrily k lichotivym a jeste k tomu pridejme neschopnost nekterych modelek chodit na podpatcich. Finale se konalo v Prazskem klubu Sasazu a vzhledem k tomu, ze reklama na tuto akci byla temer nulova, byl klub skoro prazdny a tedy ani nekolik prehlidek aktualni kolekce znacky Triumph nedokazalo zlepsit atmosferu nebo pridat na vzruseni prihlizejicich. Vitezny model od Vladimira Stanka "Mirror of Beauty" se mi libil, ovsem predstavuji si ho s diametralne odlisnym stylingem.
Dnes o mne a dalsich blogerech vysel clanek v Respektu. Celkove mi to prijde jako prumer, standard Respektu neznam, jelikoz ho bezne nectu, ale cekala bych trochu vetsi rozsireni obzoru. Trochu me sokovala veta: "jen je zajimave, co vedlo studenta germanistiky, aby si dal se svym oblecenim tolik prace." Jsem to jen ja nebo Vam to taky vyzni tak ze se ocekava ze se modou bude zabyvat spis nejaka znudena nevzdelana osoba ktera nema nic jineho na praci? Tento komentar se tykal Viti a ja opravdu nechapu, proc to v Ceske republice porad pripada tolika lidem zvlastni, ze se nekdo zamysli nad tim, co si vzit na sebe. Dalsi vec, ktera me zarazila je, ze se jeste dnes nekdo pozastavuje nad tim, ze street style mimo jine znamena, ze lide mixuji "neformalni a formalni prvky obleceni." V kazdem ale opravdu kazdem casopise uz dnes najdete rubriky typu Jak nosit jednu sukni na 5 zpusobu a navod na to, jak prizpusobit jeden prvek satniku ruznym prilezitostem prave diky kombinovani. Nicmene jsem rada za kazdou pozornost, ktere se Cesti blogeri dockaji, jelikoz i spatna reklama je reklama ze.
