Most of the Parisian people who live in Los Angeles will tell you this: when we are homesick, the Figaro Bistrot in Los Feliz is THE café-boulangerie where we meet to get our French fix. The little patio on the sidewalk (you rarely see this in LA), the windows with vintage-inspired French inscriptions, the round tables and the rattan chairs, the croissant and éclair au café…everything is made to make you feel like you’re back home. And the theme of this week’s look goes perfectly with the decor: Parisian.
This Summer again, we will be wearing pink. Not any kind of pink: pale, soft, pastel or antique pink are taking over the fashion collections. But this season’s pink is not romantic or boho, like we used to wear it in the past. This year, we will wear pink on modern, cutting-edge pieces, we will break the “cute little girl” image with bold associations and oversized volumes. Another way to wear pink this season is top wear it on masculine, boyish garments to contrast with the girly colour. Or, if you’re afraid to look like a barbie, just wear it on accessories (and good news, there’s tones of pink mules, loafers and pumps this season!)
I am reading everywhere that the Trench Coat is making his comeback…my only question is “when was it ever old-fashioned”? If you ask me there’s nothing more basic, timeless and safe than a trench coat. You might not wear it every day, you might buy other coats that are more trendy (hello bomber jackets or oversize 90’s denim jackets!), but you can be sure that every time you’ll wear it you’ll look elegant and effortless chic. I own a few trench coats in different colours and designs (I posted this outfit with a blue one recently), but for Spring time I love to wear a white or creme model, that I rarely tie to break the strict style of the coat and makes it look more ‘cool’.
I’ve listed below 10 white trench coats I think you should invest in the Spring 2017!
Alright, so this is another post about my trip to Tulum, but this time I am talking about food! I was really surprised by the quality of food everywhere we went, wether it was a well-known restaurant or a small caban by the beach. Most of the touristic destinations I’ve been to are usually full of places that offer you overpriced local specialties with a really poor food quality, but we really had a culinary blast in Tulum. Don’t get me wrong, the food did not impress us by its originality: we had ceviches, shrimps tacos, fish almost every day…but the quality, the freshness, the seasoning made every dish a real pleasure to eat. Way better than the Mexican food we’re used to eat in LA! I’ve listed below the 5 best food spots in Tulum.
This intense moment of joy, when the mailman hands you a Chloé parcel on a Saturday morning (while you are hangover, taking care of your kid who has no clue that you slept 2 hours, and just plan to stay on the couch and pop ibuprofen to make it through the day). At this magic moment, you forget about your headache (fashion is best the medicine ever!), run to the kitchen to grab the first knife that you find, to open the parcel…and fall in love immediately with this backpack, the new version of the iconic “Faye” model from Chloé! I am wearing it with this Maje long printed dress that I bought a few years ago but still love to wear!
Ask anybody: I am known for traveling with way more stuff than I need. But for my trip to Tulum, I went left and only brought 2 pair of shorts, swimsuits (counting as tops too), one dress and this super cute twisted blouse from storets. So this is basically the outfit I’ve been living in for a week!
I finally took the time to sort out my pictures from my trip to Tulum, Mexico. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was there on holidays at the end of January (I’ve posted dozens of pictures of white sand beaches and transparent water that you must have hated me for ;-). I’ll talk more about Tulum in my next post (coming ASAP), but right now I wanted to introduce you to Albertine Swim, a French swimwear designer that I’ve always loved for its original, versatile and very fashionable line, to wear at the beach or to style with your Summer shorts, dresses or skirts. This particular one-piece is currently on sale, go check our their eshop!
There’s nothing more versatile and easy-to-wear than an oversized grey sweater in Winter.
Tuck it in your jeans, a mini-skirt or layer it over a pleated midi-skirt, and you immediately look stylish AND effortless chic.Check out and shop 12 chunky grey sweaters that I am currently coveting.
This week, I am styling this Sandro trench coat that I’ve worn for years a little differently: I’ve added a belt at the waist to make the look more powerful, chic and feminine.
Paris and LA are two very different cities, but right now they have something in common: it’s SALES SEASON!
Don’t tell me that you don’t need anything. If Coco Chanel had followed women’s needs….the little black dress would not exist. Fashion is all about desire: it’s a process that goes from spotting a piece, to want it, to wait and covet it, to finally buy it. For me, it’s a very quick process because I usually skip the “wait” step (#compulsivebuyer). But for most of you ladies, who have been waiting, thinking of THIS piece for weeks (over-the-knee boots? a designer bag?), go treat yourself! No need to be reasonable when it’s half price.
Also, sales are the perfect time to fall for this current fashion trend that you KNOW won’t last more than a year (hello Pajama suit!), so it hurts a little less to get it with a great discount.
Let me know which one of the items above you would fall for!
