Dear lovely and regular followers, there was a big gap in my posting here and it is also over of Theczechgirl.com. Since January this year, there were so many things in my life… my life has had changed completely. But whats more important is I finally made it to change my blog and start all over. That’ s what this digital platform allow you to do, one day when you decide you can all change it for good (in reality I kept thinking about it nearly 2 years). Everyone, I’ d like to introduce you Fringe & Doll blog (www.fringeanddoll.com), an ultimate destination for international fashion, personal looks, styling tips and inspirational posts.
Here is a little sneak peek, more on the official paage here Fringe & Doll

Quick note about my favourite looks from October and November time last year. Can you believe it I am saying last year already. There was a lots of designers and brand I fall in love to last year, so what is going to come next? I have no idea, but will find out together here on TCG. Happy Sunday everyone!
Here is my another look, inspired by feeling comfortable when I am not doing anything and suddenly realise that I am missing the most important thing at home, like day cream or milk :D. Do you have the same feeling, when you don´t want to dress up, but still look cool and effortless, while just popping to the nearest shop? I know my dad would tell me, he used to wear pants like this in a Communist time (not a good comment though) and would clearly show me to take them off. Well, hope you don´t see this one dad :). Wishes beauties, Radana.

A mood board inspiration for this weekend wear with my favourite Ganni jumper and lovely printed scarf. Comfortable trousers that you could see in yesterday post and London based jewellery brand Ingenious that focuses on fine pieces.
2013 is over and here we go again, the English weather starts again. Rainy. Windy. Fogy. What else to wish for? Maybe a little bit of snow? No. This year, I don’t think England will see snow (that’s a good thing at some point).
Sometimes, you have to feel comfortable and not wearing jeans all the time, I know it can be boring (thank you for your comments), but can you imagine not to wear jeans? I somehow can’t. But here I am wearing a sweat pants by American Vintage brand from Paris with Danish designer coat Designers Remix, how do you like this look?

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
How are you going to celebrate it tonight? From your causy home, with your friends in house party or maybe somewhere outside in bar, or maybe in the cottage by the mountain (that’ s what I would do if I would get the chance as many years ago)? My New Year’ s Eve will be all about my boyfriend and some of our friends, in our favourite bar with 6 course meal and live music + DJ. And I am going to wear this sequinnes dress – so my night of champagne will be fullfill with sequinne dress and a smart guy alongside my arm. Isn’ t it great? Speak to you in year 2014, yay!!!!
Coming to end of 2013, the year that many people were affraid of, but for the other it was a year of change. For me it was pretty normal year as any other, but few bits has changed of course. In the beggining of the month, me and my boyfriend Ali went to Czech for skiing (for the first time together). We both loved it! After that, my boo decided it is the time for him to open his own business… and Papa´s Caffe was born (if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may notice it is pretty much my everyday destination for lunch or coffee breaks). Somewhere in that time I got invited to Berlin to cover Deichman´s event. Back in February and September there was also time for me to attend London Fashion Week. Things has slightly changed at my work too, as I got the chance as a stylist go with my bosses buying and meet some agents of interesting fashion labels. And also, as my iniciative, we have launched a new digital magazine Style Edit. In between all the major things, I also visited Brighton, again Czech, got better camera, and even better lense, bought new sofa that totally transfered our lovely and causy apartment, met so many interesting people, shot lots of style for my blog and explored many different things that you will be able to see in 2014 here, on my blog. That´s pretty much everything I can thing of, excpet…
Thank you all for your support and I wish you all a Very Happy New Year!

It is over, the Christmas 2013 is over now, and if you have a full time job same as me, you are possibly back today at work. But before we leave the house, here is a little sneek peak to my apartment over the festive period. I decided to share my table settings, Christmas tree and of course, my new dress that I wore for Christmas Eve dinner.
The Czech tradition starts on the Christmas Eve. In the morning you put up and decorate Christmas tree, prepare dinner for later, btw. you can´t eat meat the whole day, so you would able to see a golden pig, whchich means luck. Why do you think we bake lots of Christmas cookies, right? In the evening a lovely dinner is served, including traditional soup (depending what part of Czech are you from, it could be either fish soup or vegetable one or who knows), potato salad with sausage (again depending on the tradition) and cod as a main. No dessert after meal (at least at my family). Lots of coke and champagne is a must. And then is the St. Nicholas time where he brings all the present within 5 minutes through the window (apparently he can fly). The following days are dedicated to other relatives, and that´s the end of Czech Christmas.
But because I live in UK at the moment, here is my Czech-English version of Christmas. A week before I put up and decorated my Christmas tree ( and I wanted it to be different this time, so had been searching everywhere for a unique decoration).On 24th in the afternoon I start cooking, making the tradional soup from North Czech. Because my boyfriend actually doesn´t eat pork, we change the menu and prepared a beef, but beautiful rosted beef rib as proper English would do. After all, we also have a dessert. I am not fun of any traditional English Christmas pudding, so we just kept it international (of course) and had a lovely tirramisu. And the rest you already know, besides I don´t know how the Czech ´Santa Clause´got in UK…, but things happen. I hope you had a lovely time as well as I did and you have had enjoyed this post.
In December three years ago, there was a girl sitting in her room and thinking about sharing her favourite pictures, photography and her style to a public. The answer that came after short consideration is pretty clear. TCG blog was born somewhere in English causy city apartment!
