It seems, besides many other talents, Stella McCartney also knows the secret of wearing nude tones without looking washed out and that is why I couldn't help but continue talking about her Spring 2009 collection for a little longer. 

My love of caramel and nude hues is not a secret - I could live in them. Looking back, I suspect that the feeling was heavily influenced by Armani, Max Mara, Calvin Klein and Trussardi as well as my vision of the elegant Italian women I saw in movies and on the pages of fashion magazines. The only small, but significant problem has always been the colour itself - it really is rather difficult to wear, especially with an Eastern European complexion like mine. 

Then I thought of McCartney and turned to her for inspiration. The idea of blending a touch of white isn't new, but the outfit certainly is and I absolutely adore it, both the original version and my high street alternative. So perfect for the summer in the city. Still struggling to believe it's 2009...

  3. Wearing nude shades without a tan really is challenging... and since I live in a place where it rains year round, and of course refuse to step into a tanning bed, any kind of bronze on my skin is a rare thing. Still, this look is lovely to dream of! Perhaps I could pull off the shoes and blazer :)

  7. Great comparison. I love Stella McCartney but buying everything from her line is not necessarily feasible or cheap. Nudes for the win. :]

  14. Dear Natalia, this outfit is wonderful and I know already that you love these colour shades - which fit perfect to you btw. Unfortunately beige is not really my colour ... Happy weekend!

  15. Love it! it is true, white is color that does not wash you out... A great secret!
    I agree, too, that great designers can create fashion well before a trend gets rooted.. and you can years years, and decades of wear from certain pieces!
    Love this look !
