We The Young- a great photoshoot I have done for GAP with my sister.

I totally love these shorts, i have worn them to all places possible, just changing the accessories, either flip-flops, sneakers,heels, casual,sporty, chic, sexy- you name it! They look awesome every time! 

The floral bag is one of the key items of GAP’s new collection, due to the vibrant print. It is also very comfortable and fits in so much!

I am wearing:

Sweatshirt, shorts & bag- GAP

Shades- Ray Ban (obviously!)

Sneakers- keep forgetting! Borrowed them from my sister!


Doors- This is most effortless but amazing photoshoot I had. I love the colours and how lovely my Bimba & Lola lilac net top looks with the denim shorts.

This was a day when my aunt, brother, sister and I were having a great day walking through Summer Gardens, in Saint Petersburg, eating ice-cream, laughing at memories, making pictures. On our way back to the metro, while taking photos of the buildings and streets, my gaze fell on these gorgeous doors, of chocolate colour, with intricate metal work.

And as I love to have interesting surroundings in my photos, I couldn’t pass by such beauty and not record it digitally! 

I am wearing:

Top- Bimba & Lola

Denim shorts- TopShop

Caramel Flats- GAP

Shades- Ray Ban


Nude Tones for Marla London- Here is the second and final shoot I did for Marla London with Dubai-based photographer and blogger Mahryska.

If my First Look was more about colour-blocking and edgy style, this time I decided to go with calm Earth tones- nude, brown and tan. Once again I styled my Marla bag with clothes from CREA Concept, where the photoshoot took place.

Did you take a good look at that massive necklace? I needed some sharpness in the nude palette of my outfit and this piece of art was more than perfect!

As for my lovely scaled bag, I have been wearing it non stop to work and to outings. It doesn’t look very big, but fits in a lot, even my DSLR!


Fire Walk With Me- This is a photoshoot from 2012, when I was just starting up on Lookbook. I was never a fan of “fake poses” or very unreal settings. I love doing my photos outdoors, creating some harmony between my outfit and the surrounding nature.

This dress is around 30 years old, bought by my mom in Armenia. It has been mine for the past several years and I never get tired of it. It is a beautiful unusual jersey knit and I absolutely love the skirt!

So this is my crazy-desert-dances photoset. I miss my long red hair. Looks insane in these swirl pics! When I re-discovered those photos I was surprised to notice that I was much thinner. This year I gained a whopping 4 kilos (Shut up! It is “whopping” for me!! Been stuck on the same bloody 48 kgs since highschool!) and I’m loving it! But those pics are awesome nevertheless! :)



Pavlovsk- At last! At long last I had a photoshoot in this gorgeous magical dress, that I bought at a vintage online shop of a lovely friend in Dublin, called Pretty Bones Jefferson. It is a 70s dress probably made tribute to the fashion of the late 19th century, when women didn’t have to show all their skin to be considered beautiful.

As you know I spent my summer vacation in the amazing Saint Petersburg, Russia, taking in all the architecture, all the rich history of this stunning city. It was home to great poets, artists and inventors, so it comes as no surprise that the minute you step outside you feel that culture hanging in the air and your mind wants to discover and absorb all the beauty that is around! 

For this dress, I chose a special place- the Pavlovsk garden, which is more like a vast forest surrounding a palace. It provided beautiful scenery, not to mention the most elevating walk I have had in a long time!

First time in my life I felt like a true lady, with this long skirt, tight waste, sensual collar and sleeves. My awesome sister did my hair, make-up and photos!

The garden held also another meaning- we have an old black & white photo of my late grandmother standing in this park, with a Rotunda on the background. So it was great to discover it decades later and make photos (photos 6, 7, 8). 

So here it is, another classy post! Hope you enjoyed!
