Dress to impress who?
Moi. When I feel good everyone else's will too.

Top Shop for the size and basics, Zara for design and price, H&M for making a kid feels like he's in a candy store.
Your next "must have" purchase?
A skinny well tailored suit. A pair of white patent shoe. Make it Hedi's Slim Suit. To die for!
