This Thanksgiving will be my second since I moved in the USA, and believe it or not, I haven’t even started to cook for tomorrow (I even haven’t bought anything), but I am ALL SET for Black Friday and Cyber week. Last year I could not believe how crazy this shopping day was, and I want to be ready this time. So I spent a few hours navigating on my favorites eshops, and I’ve gathered my favorite trending pieces to shop starting Black Friday sales.
Velvet is one of the season’s hottest trends: more chic and elegant than most fabrics with its luminous finish, but also way more comfy with its soft and comforting touch. That said, let’s follow the trend and wrap ourselves in velvet for the Winter! Here’s my selection of 10 affordable velvet pieces to shop urgently before they sell out.
I’ve recently posed for The Goods LA, a Los Angeles-based brand which designs and crafts everyday essentials leather goods with pure and minimal lines. Just what I love. Here are the pics wearing their cool “The Shell” backpack, a piece which was perfect for me since I travel often times between Paris and LA, and always need to carry my computer with me. Also, check my ITW on their website, where I talk very frankly about my background, fashion, blogging…
The 60’s continue to influence Fashion this season, with the come back of the ankle boots. Wear it with cropped jeans, a long pencil skirt or culottes to add a modern touch to your style. Here’s my selection of 9 ankle boots for all the budgets.

I meant to make a post about my beauty essentials for a while. Beauty essentials? This did not mean ANYTHING a few years ago, when a touch of lipstick was enough to look amazing. Now, I need a army of little tools (concealers, blush, unifier, foundation..) to literally “save face”.
I recently changed my whole beauty routine, and here are the big winners I carry everywhere with me:
Summer is coming, and with it an accessory which won’t leave you: your sunglasses. To me, sunglasses are like everything else: I ALWAYS want a new pair. But once you buy a $400 Thierry Lasry pair…then lose them…and bought another one which is now damaged because you bring them all over the world…you think twice before you buy another expensive pair of sunnies.
Damn, I can’t believe it took me 3 months to write this post. I am getting so busy that I am late on all the things I’d like to talk to you guys about. So I’ll be quick: you need to know about THE REFORMATION, this LA-based brand which designs and manufactures limited-edition collections in their own sustainable sewing factory, with mostly vintage or rescued deadstock fabrics from fashion houses that over-ordered.
Why is this detail important for us? Because by producing their own collections and using second-hand fabrics, they cut out the traditional retail markups, and provide affordable, sustainable and super trendy clothes.
