It’s hard to believe that we are into the final few days of summer! Fortunately, though, the weather is still sunny and beautiful and I can happily continue to set up photoshoots outside. My latest shoot, the results of which you can see featured, centred around the heart of my beautiful home city of Poznań, whose Old Town is visited by tens of thousands of tourists every day. And there’s no wonder – as exquisite architecture and a wealth of charming restaurants serving delicious food encourage people to stick around for a while 🙂 But crowds of people are no problem for me, so despite my provocative outfit I decided to take some pictures in one of the most recognisable parts of the city – the steps of Renaissance City Hall. By the way, my beloved new black heels from Christian Louboutin, which I ordered a few weeks ago, have finally made their first appearance on my blog. I have dreamed of owning of pair of ‘So Kate’ heels for many years, which is why I’m so happy that I have been able finally to add them to my shoe collection. And although they don’t rank among my most comfortable shoes, they look phenomenal and very, very sexy!
Nude tights are having a moment. This week Meghan Markle was spotted at her first public engagement as a newlywed wearing a pair, adhering to the strict royal dress code of no-bare-legs. With plenty of summer weddings this year, I’ve been tempted to try the look but I’ve been apprehensive too and struggling to find the right pair.
From the moment the box arrived, I knew Heist tights would be different. It’s a treat to open their sandy pink box that feels luxe and smart. The tights come in a dust bag that I will be using again to stop any zips or heels catching on them as you pack and unpack for a weekend away. As you slither into them, they feel smooth and silky. There are two options of waistband – high at the waist and low to sit around the hips – I went for the high and the panel around the waist gives you just enough additional support to justify a lunch time pudding.
I wore Heist Nude on a hot summer’s day – all day – and never felt sticky. As the day turned to night I was thankful for a little leg warmth, and the flexibility meant I could dance all night without them rolling down or digging in at my waist. At 18-denier you almost forget you are wearing them – without a doubt the smoothest and most flattering tights I have ever worn.

The recent cold and frosty weather has not been at all conducive to outdoor photoshoots, that’s why for several weeks I’ve been feverishly working on producing pictures much more suited to indoor conditions 🙂 This particular shoot features a tight grey dress and shiny tights, complemented by a striking accent – burgundy high heels.
This is definitely one of the most provocative sets that I have featured on my blog so far, but you know by now that I like to live life on the edge a little sometimes… and I think you also like surprises! Many items of clothing can hide a woman’s natural assets and best features, but I’m certainly not afraid to explore braver and bolder looks. For example, after a few buttons are undone, a white shirt which so often forms part of a stylish, smart and conventional look can take on a completely different character… Add to it a shiny leather skirt, sheer tights and red shoes with extremely high heels – picked up from Bootky.pl – and you can easily fulfil the role of a sexy secretary. Just to be clear, though, I’m not suggesting that any women actually go to work dressed this way 😉 But I am convinced, however, that your partner won’t mind if from time to time you wear something similar for him…
