Effortless chic…this is how most people describe the Parisian style, and I think this outfit is a good illustration of just that. I had a crush on Topshop’s tapered pants selection, inspired by the men’s wardrobe, and especially for the model I am wearing, which is high-waisted to add a touch of femininity. Ideal to wear with an oversize shirt and to complete this very Parisian look, derbies .
We’re already in December…it’s so hard to believe, this year went so fast for me! It’s this time of the year when we start thinking of our holiday style, right? Glitter, party dresses, sparkles…I’ve never been good at dressing for a party, since I am not a fan of the sexy-show off outfits, and I wanna believe that holiday styles can also be classy and minimal.
“Paris, I love you. Stand Up again”.
Like a lot of people from France, I don’t really have words, and it took me a few days to be able to react. No words, but a lot of rage, fear, and guilt for not being in Paris right now.
Like almost everybody I know, I lost someone last Friday, directly or indirectly, and for all the 128 people who were massacred and their families, I respected a few days of silence and mourning. But this is enough, I am so sick of this insecurity, this fear, which took over Paris since Charlie Hebdo attacks. I won’t say what I really think, because this blog is not political, but I have one thing to say. I hear all the time that French people are stubborn, hanging to their lifestyle, and that Parisian people are real assholes. Well, it’s time to show it. FUCK AND GOOD LUCK TO THOSE WHO TRY TO MAKE FRANCE BOW DOWN TO THEIR STUPID CONVICTIONS.
Bonjour! If you follow my Instagram and the blog, you know I’ve been traveling and moving over the past 3 years: from Paris to LA, LA to Paris, spending a few weeks in Biarritz in France, Palm Springs in California…but I FINALLY settled in my new home. No more movings. A home I finally can decorate and feel, well, like at home. That’s why I’ve been very excited to furnish it and I’ve been spending hours on decoration websites (the main one being, I confess, IKEA).
And even if I am NOT AT ALL a DYI person (it is as dangerous to give me a hammer as it could be to give it to my one year old son), I definitely want to try this decoration idea found on the French website Côté Maison: to use recycled wood pallets as decoration elements for coffee tables, beds, shelfs…check the following pics and tell me what you think about it!
Paris Fashion Week is over, it’s now time to look back at the runways to figure out what we will be wearing next Summer. Which can be super confusing, I agree, especially because now, in the fashion world, we see everything and its contrary: minimalism, layering, bohemian, rock, ethnic, graphic, denim, glitter…all those trends come back every season, and this is just the beginning of the list.
So instead of trying to spot the fashion trends for the Summer 2016 (because I would find 30 of them, which at the end of the day means none), I chose to share with you 10 strong moments of Paris Fashion Week: some details, prints, looks, which were trend-setting and inspiring to me.
When the little black dress meets the current trends…we can’t resist!
1. A long and transparent tunique dress from Bellerose
2. A leather dress from Les Petites
3. A 60’s Baby Doll from Mango
4. A tuxedo dress from The Kooples
5. A crewneck dress from Margaux Lonnberg
6. A fringed seventies dress from Maje
I am very flattered to present the pictures of my shooting by Delphine, creator of the participative Parisian blog Du Style Madame!
Because I hate to put away my Summer outfits; because I did not get to enjoy this cute short jumpsuit from Parisian designer Ninon Retro (received mid-August while I was preparing my wedding!); and because at the end of the day, back-to-work season is still in Summer, here’s the perfect look, mix of boho and working-girl style, to achieve a smooth transition to Fall.
