Denim dress

… Seulement six mois à vivre à Londres et écrire en Français me manque déjà. Il faut dire que cela reste beaucoup plus facile de parler de mode – et de ses péripéties britanniques – dans sa langue maternelle que d’alterner entre linguee et wordreference pour trouver la traduction exacte de « lie-de-vin » et de « sandales lacées façon gladiateur ou nymphe des forêts ». Retour aux sources donc, mais sans passer par

    I might have to eat pasta for the rest of the year now I’ve bought these boots but, trust me, it’s worth it. So worth it that London slowly reaching 25 degrees – and summer – is not even something that could deprive me from wearing them. I’m just a bit worried about not being able to take them off when the heat will have them stuck to

This summer is all about denim. We’ve been warned by every worthy fashion blog, magazine and Instagram account this planet counts, and we know we cannot avoid it.

Blue wave

  I can still remember very well the day I swore to my young 14 year-old self that I would never ever wear any kind of clothes my teachers could pick. Fortunately (or not), I grew up. And I also learned that fashion is an endless circle that was bound to bring Mrs D’s famous denim pencil skirt back – even if it had won by far the « worst item » award at

Back on track

New job, new city, and a two-month break away from the dear blogosphere. Why so long? Let’s just say I’ve been caught up in crazy London and focusing on discovering my neighbourhood for the good of Stories and me’s next articles (“I have been too busy partying” sounds a bit too desperate – yet true.) I had fun. Loads. But now it is time to get back to my serious
