Zalando, No Compromise, Opulence & Magical birds

Phew what an hectic month so far! I’ve been running everywhere, I feel like I haven’t sat down in a while.

For those of you who follow me on the gram, maybe you know I’ve been to Berlin earlier this month and it was LIT (- is it how the youngsters talk? Girl, please tell me I still got it), I’m reporting from London as we speak and it’s been a wicked yet exhausting week filled with Fashion Week gigs and Bridget Jones style confessions (I’m serious, video to come on Stylist), work interviews (thanks for all the applications, bear with me for replies) fun and little sleep.

But the trip to Berlin was the highlight of this month, I went there with Zalando for their edition of Bread && Butter and boy they’re my new gang.
I’ve been growing this crush for Zalando for the last few months and we’ve really hit it off recently, without a single week passing without a Zalando box making it to my flat.
I didn’t realise they had so many brands and deliver so fast be it in London or Geneva. Anyway, I had a look at their AW16 collection and I heard the theme was Opulence. The campaign name is actually “No Compromise”
All of a sudden my inner magical bird (yes, it’s a thing. It’s as grand, flamboyant and graceful as it sounds ahah) begged to be unleashed to freely be the grand character it was always meant to be. It screams I wear what I want and I wear it because I meant it. Yep. 

Its makings? A turtle neck to stand tall and upright, forcing recognition as it hovers around; a pair of scarlet red boots that look like they’ve been borrowed from a socialite from the 70s for extra credibility; and to finish up a fine plumage so they can watch… And maybe learn?

How would you do opulence? Any inner fancy bird to channel? The next thing that comes to my mind is sassy vixen on the run – keep an eye out for her!

Lots of love,
Freddie x

    Hi Frederique,
    Greeting to you. 🙂

    Wow.. this is stunning in look and I haven’t seen such wonderful outfit yet. This is unique but gorgeous in look and suiting very well on you. Seems like you love to wear such stylish and unique designed dress.

    You have a great find from Zalando, it is the perfect destination to get the fashionable things and accessories. I adore it so much. The photo of you captured very well wearing this wonderful outfit. Seems like it comes with stylish but comfy in wear. Women love the dress which comes with comfy and the opulence magical birds looks like too.

    Well matching with your dress and shoe. Thanks for sharing.
    -Ravi.
