I feel like this season, statement skirts are overtaking dresses, which is great because skirts are more fun to build an outfit around. Unlike a dress, you can style a skirt in so many different ways and mix prints, fabrics and patterns. The top does not have to match the bottom, and contrast is highly encouraged: a crop top with a maxi high-rise skirt, a loose sweater over a pleated skirt…or in my case a graphic tee tuck in a colorful high-rise skirt from Kenzo.
I have listed for you my favorite statement skirts spotted on IFCHIC:
Last year I discovered Fame and Partners, an online atelier that creates customizable, made-to-order clothing (which means no mass production and less waste). For each piece you can customize details such as: the color, the length, the style of the sleeves, or choose to add ruffles or plunging neckline…to suit your individual preferences. I have partnered with Fame and Partners again to introduce you to their Wedding Guests collection: a wide variety of dresses for every style and occasion, from the cocktail gown to the mini little black dress.
I have always been a strong supporter of wearing white in Winter (it’s the ultimate chic if you ask me), especially when it comes to pulling out a monochrome look. I love to style a white suit ( I have done it several times on the blog here and here for example), however this time I swapped my suit pants for white flared jeans to make the look more casual. The metallic crop top and ruffle sleeves by Tibi (bought with IFCHIC) brings the holiday-ish touch. To celebrate the holidays and the new year, you can shop this top (and the entire site, including sales) with a 20% discount on IFCHIC with the code “MERRYANDHAPPY” until 01/01/18.
Spoiler: Revealing before/after photos of my skin at the end of this post!
A few years ago, because of my pregnancy, sun exposure, and age, my skin started to show dark spots, little scars and freckles. I have been trying to hide these with makeup and bought all kind of primers, foundations and concealers. However, I am not wearing makeup every day and I really wanted to improve my skin condition to be able to feel confident with zero makeup.
I have already talked about Parfaire Medical on the blog, a Medi-Spa located in Pasadena that provides a complete range of non-surgical treatments for the face and body such as skin tightening, lifts, IPL Photo-Facial, acne treatment…I tried their SilkPeel Facial treatment a few months ago and fully trust their expertise. I was very curious about their Clear-Skin treatment which uses Lumecca, a new technology that uses laser-like intense pulsed light (IPL) and energy to selectively target and treat a variety of skin conditions.
I have partnered with Parfaire to introduce you to this treatment and give my honest review about it.
New year = new decoration, right? I have been wanting to redecorate my bedroom for a while (which should not be very hard because it’s so minimalist and white right now), and craving natural materials mixed with dark colors (grey and black), and plants. My main source of inspiration is CB2 (even if I can’t shop everything there…YET) and I have been coveting the following items for my new bedroom. I am currently thinking of getting a few as my Christmas treat from me to myself! What are your thoughts?
Who doesn’t stress out when it comes to keep your family meals interesting? It’s a big challenge for me. I am a pretty good cook but a very limited one…with only 10 recipes TOP to my repertoire! As a working mother, as much as I would love to experience new recipes I just don’t have time to browse the internet or my cook books, then go to the supermarket to buy every single ingredient. This is so frustrating because we end up always eating the same meals!
This week, I partnered with PLATED to try their tasty and functional meal kit delivery service.
