With the sudden drop in temperatures came the time to bring out the big guns. And by that I mean the winter coats. This season, the bigger the coat the better. I had my eye in this beautiful coat that I now call my cocoon coat from Nowistyle and I couldn't wait to get it. I absolutely love the shape. It can be worn open if the weather permits, cinched in the waist with a belt or pinned with a brooch. I am going to search for a pair of colored long gloves to go with it, maybe purple, to add a little splash of color.

This is me, channelling my inner ballerina. I don't really recall wanting to be a ballerina when I was little, but it's quite possible I did. I did want at some point to become a gymnast and I did in first grade in school. We would also take ballet lessons once a week with a different coach, and I remember loving the fact that she played piano. I learned a lot about poise and grace and making it all seem effortless. I try to remember that while posing. And this experience has probably marked the starting point of my love for dance. Now don't imagine anything fancy. The only dancing I am doing is on Friday night in an underground pub or bar, and mostly to brit pop music.

It is common knowledge that the little red dress is the epitome of femininity. It makes quite a statement, that's for sure. My leather jacket is currently the statement piece in my wardrobe and I've already worn it in endless combinations, but this one is by far the one I was most excited to experiment with. I love the contrast with the delicate red dress. It gives the whole outfit some edge and makes the dress more appropriate for day wear. I am also wearing a statement bracelet and ring designed by my talented friend Adina Mircea.

Hello again, kittens. It’s yet another foggy day here in Shanghai but the weather is quite nice and warm. No November rain so far. I managed to snap these pictures a few days ago at work. We are located quite far from the city center but the offices here have a beautiful garden where you can take a stroll during lunch break. The food here has been amazing, and quite different from what you usually get in Chinese food restaurants in Europe. I managed to stay off coffee even during my first jetlagged days, and have been drinking lots and lots of green tea instead. I am coming home in a few days, until then check out my Instagram account @skinny_buddha for more pictures. Zàijiàn!

Ni hao! Greetings from Shanghai! I had a wonderful time here so far and I still have a week left to explore this fascinating city. This weekend I went for a stroll on the Bund boardwalk and enjoyed the scenic view. Situated on the east bank of the Huangpu River, the Bund is the symbol of Shanghai. New finance and commercial houses as well as grand buildings built in the 1930s in European architectural styles cluster along the Bund. On the other side of the river you can admire the modern symbols of the city, the magnificent skyscrapers such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower on the left. A light fog was dancing on the river, making the view even more beautiful. Picture credits go to the random tourists on the boardwalk who were kind enough to take some pictures of me.
