It wasn’t just Dominika’s quirky rocker style that caught our eye; it was her incredible crimson red hair too. On her blog fashionphilosophy.net, Dominika shares her musings on fashion, beauty and photography.
Her style is a cosmopolitan concoction as though she’s from Poland and lives in Cork, she admits London is the city that most strongly influences her look. Read on to find out more about Dominika’s style icons and her long list of favourite blogs.
How would you describe your personal style? I have to say – Tomboy/London-rock chic – It’s actually pretty hard to describe my style. I love street-style and you would definitely see me wearing something inspired by classic London style, I also love dark and boyish clothes.
What inspires your style?
Photography, street-style and other fashion bloggers.
Being from Poland but living in Cork, which city do you feel influences you style more?
It’s actually pretty weird, but I’m not really influenced by style in Poland or in Cork. The city that has the biggest influence on my style is London. I follow many great street-style blogs and I’m always excited to see how people dress over there, their style is really edgy! It’s simply amazing!
What are your favourite current trends, why do you like them and how are you wearing them?
My favourite trends would have to be Metallics and Dalmatian-print, they’re both really great. And of course I’m also really happy that the blacks are also a big trend right now!
Who are some of your style icons (dead or alive!) and why?
I don’t really have any style icons; there are just lots of random people whose outfits I love. I do however love the style of Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast and Alice of Alice Point, they’re both amazing!
Name one go-to piece in your wardrobe and tell us why you love it?
My Zara sequin biker jacket in black. I bought it two years ago and wear it all the time! I try not to wear it too much when taking new photos for my blog but I pretty much always end up wearing it!
What are your favourite places to shop in Cork?
Definitely Topshop, H&M, River Island and TKMaxx. Especially when they have sales going on! There is a really great vintage shop in the English Market called Miss Daisy Blue; they have the most amazing dresses and vintage jewellery.
What are your favourite fashion websites/blogs?
I have a very long list of my favourite fashion blogs but here are the sites that I truly love: The Sartorialist, Park & Cube, Alice Point, Fashion Toast, Stitches|Fabric|and Soul, Pale Division, Le Blog de Betty, Vanessa Jackman, Zebra and Meerkat and Sea of Shoes.
Do you have any fashion pet hates?
I do (quite many in fact)! The worst ones would have to be Crocs and Ugg shoes!
