“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is an oddly polarizing figure. She’s been loved and hated for her successes. She credits all of her success to positivity. When she speaks of her success, she rarely talks about hard work and determination. Rather she focuses on having the right thoughts and the right approach to life and work and values.

Treat the Heat: My Fashion Story for l’Officiel Baltics

Swimsuit: Max Rieny, shirt: Five Department, bag: Salar, necklace: Mila Bijoux, hat: Radà, shoes: Aquazzura

I’m very pleased to finally share with you my latest styling work for l’Officiel Baltic. It was an amazing shooting I did together with Italian photographer Marco Onofri earlier this month. Packed with tons of luxurious clothes from my trusted Milanese showrooms, we went to Lake Como with our pretty model Martina Troni.

Наконец-то я могу поделиться с вами своей последней работой как стилиста, которую опубликовали на днях в l’Officiel Baltics! Это была потрясающая съемка, которую я провела вместе с итальянским фотографом Марко Онофри в начале августа. Загрузив в машину тонну роскошной одежды из моих любимых миланских шоу-румов, мы отправились на озеро Комо в компании красотки-модели Мартины Трони.

Necklace: Radà, shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti, swimsuit: I Love Pretty, carre: Hermès

The story was dedicated to effortless summer elegance on vacation, with a focus on swimwear. Having the idea of retro Italian holidays on my mind, I’ve decided to shoot not only on the beach, but also on the boat and even on the streets of Como, showing the old Liberty train station and other beautiful corners of this antique city.

Эта фешн-стори посвящена непринужденной летней элегантности в отпуске с акцентом на купальники. Вдохновившись идеей итальянского ретро-отдыха, я решила снимать не только на пляже, но также на лодке и на улицах Комо, чтобы показать старинный вокзал в стиле либерти другие красивые уголки этого красивого города.

Swim set: I Love Pretty, net dress: Gerlando, earrings: Radà

To style the looks , I took some inspiration from jet set 70s. For example, this picture in a two-piece swimsuit with a net dress upon it is a tribute to Jane Birkin’s style.

Вдохновение для стайлинга я черпала в джет-сете 70-х годов. Например, этот снимок в раздельном купальнике с сетчатым платьем поверх – дань стилю Джейн Биркин.

Top: Valeli, slip: Maliluha Swimwear, hat: MonteGallo, earring: Radà

I couldn’t resist inserting some pieces from my summer wardrobe into the shooting. Like this white Maliluha swimsuit which looks as cool as the Versace one from the latest collection.

Full look: Versace

Я не удержалась от соблазна вставить в съемку несколько вещей из моего собственного летнего гардероба. Как этот белый купальник Maliluha, который выглядит так же стильно, как и Versace из последней коллекции.

Shirt: Anna Kiki, bikini: Missoni, bijoux: Radà, bags: Salar, glasses: Kyme

I love the idea to style a swimsuit together with a classic oversize men’s shirt. Just add lots of funky bohemian jewelry to make it more feminine! And a belt bag is a trendy touch of 2020.

Мне нравится идея сочетать купальник с классической мужской рубашкой oversize. Просто добавьте побольше богемных украшений, чтобы сделать образ более женственным! А поясная сумка – модный штрих 2020 года.

If you need to go lunch or dinner with friends on vacation, you can stay in your chic one-piece swimsuit, pairing it with a pair of trendy slouchy jeans and high heels.

Swimsuit: Agent Provacatour, earring: Pandora, jeans: Anna Kiki, bijoux: Radà

Если вы собираетесь на обед или ужин с друзьями после пляжа, вы можете остаться в вашем роскошном слитном купальнике, сочетая его с модными джинсами-слоучи и высокими каблуками.

Swimsuit: Erès, blouse: Fontana Couture Milano, sandals: Giuseppe Zanotti, bijoux: Radà

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” ~ Estée Lauder

Dxrzs6cV4AAGJG4

Here’s a success tip from someone that achieved high levels of success. She’s saying that dreaming of success won’t get you there all by itself. You have to have a dream, but you’ll stay a dreamer unless you back up your dream with work. Learn this lesson early on in your life and it will pay dividends all the time. If things aren’t working out the way you want them to it likely means you’re not putting in enough work to make them happen. Get a clear focus, a clear dream, a clear goal, and then follow up with focused work.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” – Steve Jobs

Time is limited on this earth, nobody knows how long we will live. Do not spend your time working to be someone that you are not. Work toward becoming who you want to be. Life it too short to be living someone else’s life.

“It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.” ~Howard Ruff

Being prepared is one thing, but this quote is asking you to take it to the next level. Noah was tipped off that the flood was coming, but life doesn’t always work out that way. You almost have to assume that something bad is going to happen at some point in your future, so why wait until it occurs to try to deal with it then?

it-wasnt-raining-when-noah-built-the-ark

Prepare yourself for a disaster and if it doesn’t come even better. But if it does you’ll be able to handle it better and get through it more easily. It’s not a form of negative thinking to prepare for hardship, in fact it is a way of preserving your positive thinking even through rough times.

“Choosing a goal and sticking to it changes everything.” ~Scott Reed

inspirational-quotes-change-your-life-self-development

Getting a goal is not enough, you have to stick with it if you want to accomplish it. The reason that sticking to it changes everything is that it means you’ll actually achieve your goal and then you can establish your next goal from a totally different place. It’s good not to set too many goals from the place where you are now, because after achieving a few of them you’ll be in a different place, and you can make better goals from there. You don’t want to limit yourself by your current situation. Knock out a few goals first and then reevaluate what you want to do from your new place.

“Never let your memories be greater than your dreams.” ~Doug Ivester

Memories represent your past, and your dreams represent your future. The wisdom of this quote is that you should always have more planned for your future than what you’ve accomplished in the past. Getting nostalgic is one thing, but if you get to the point where you feel like your best days are behind you it can get pretty boring and desolate. Always have a dream to be working towards rather than sitting around thinking of the yesterdays gone by. Memories are still cherishable, but shouldn’t be your point of focus.

“Never let your memories be greater than your dreams. #hungryfaces

Keep your eye on the future so you will always be creating new memories of great times.

“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” ~Jim Rohn

They say you should be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. In this case if you are going to be wishing, it’s better to wish that you were better able to handle the task at hand, rather than wishing for an easier task. It’s may seem like a subtle shift, but it takes the focus off of the difficulty of what’s in front of you, and turns it inward so that you can grow to the challenge. It’s better for you to grow than for the challenge to shrink, because you always want to be improving and getting better.
