Hattitude

One of my favourite events of the year took place a couple days ago and I am now here to answer the most asked questions about it.

Why? Where?

As much as I love the rain, I know plenty of people that don't. People that need sunshine and colors to feel fully charged and happy. I can't control the weather, therefore I give you Color BOOM!

I'm a hat maker that is constantly asked what type of clothes go best with hats.
'A good trench coat or coat!' I always find myself saying.
But they're not easy to find. Especially ones with a strong personality, to match the hat.
So here it is, NITA SAO's first clothing collection. For strong, bold and chic women!

They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. In my case, I had to view a lot of places before I found my castle. But I finally did, and so the story begins.

Channeled my inner Prince and laughed in the purple rain!

Here it is! The last day of fashion madness in London, this season!

It's been amazing but I must confess, I can't wait to go back to work! No matter how much I try I can't deactivate my workaholic mode when there are so many things going on...and my daily planner is already wondering if we've broken up...

LFW is indeed over but the magical madness continues, as London Fashion Week Festival begins! 

After a two day break I felt fresh and in need of another statement outfit. I chose a more casual NITA SAO kimono this time, and spiced it up with some belts, a 'killer' NITA SAO hat and some kick ass boots from YAS.

My last day at LFW had La La Land written all over it. From my outfit to the madness of all the 80 designers I got to know a little better that day. Let me tell you all about it, from the very beginning.

Oh, boy! We're both quite tired! Should we skip today and stay in bed and watch movies all day?

No! It's London and it's Fashion Week and you need to be out there! Splash some cold water on you face, use that really good concealer, grab an even bigger cup of coffee and get on with it! Be a Super Woman! Or better yet, be a Super Geisha!

Different day, totally different style!

I will remember the 2nd day of LFW A/W17 as the day when my self-confidence went through the roof. I usually believe in myself and feel good in my own skin, but yesterday was a totally different story. I can't remember the last time I've received more compliments from strangers passing by on the street. And that's one of the things I usually love about London. Total strangers that take a couple seconds from their life just to acknowledge out loud the fact that you put in some extra effort before leaving the house that day. And then they just walk away, leaving you with a smile to keep.
And yesterday they made me stop and ask myself "why now more than ever?".

What a 1st day it was!
Four very talented designers put a huge smile on my face today...but bare with me for a little bit and let's rewind to how the day started off.

If you're going to do LFW, you better do it in style and have a blast! Sleep well, wake up early, have a healthy breakfast, a big cup of strong coffee and put all your make-up skills to the test. Good products always help a lot and these are my buddies for today.

Welcome to our new virtual meeting spot!

It was about time, I know. It's just...I can't seem to figure out how to make my day a 48h one. I'll let you know when I do...I bet you need that too!
Going back to reality, there was an entry in my schedule, a week ago, that said 'write and publish the first entry on your blog, Ana!'. But I am obviously writting this while on board of a plane that is 15 min away from touch down in London town.
