How to dress for Paris Fashion Week (in an afordable way)?

Dear friends, The fashion week is happening right this second in Paris and I know we are all about two things (none of them being « that bass »). 1st: Kim K.’s new blond hair. 2nd: « How the hell can I dress tendance without selling an arm? » Because I have no idea why Mrs proud-mummy-of-North West swiped into the Barbie world before the Balmain show, I will focus on the second point: the outfit.

Suede skirt & kitten heels

Suede skirt and kitten heels. That is all I’m obsessed about these days. And also the reason why I’m starting a pasta diet. I must start saving from somewhere, as the drinks/going out budget can honestly not be reduced (you know I’m telling the truth). … Skirt – Saint Laurent on Net-a-Porter / Boots – & Other Stories

Paris Haute Couture SS15

It’s this time of the year again. The Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2015 closed its door yesterday. Five days of marvelous shows, dresses to die for, street style contests and hours of wait in the Parisian cold for those who didn’t get the oh-so-wanted carton d’invitation.

5 New Years resolutions I truly want to take – but will obviously not

Every single year I write a list of those things I want to achieve/get rid of through the next 12 months, and every

Party outfit inspirations

  Party time is around the corner and so are my favourite outfits for the holidays. This year, it’s all about glitter, faux fur and embroidered mini dresses (let’s just hope the party takes place in a warm house). The best thing about dressing up for Christmas or New Years (and all the soirées between them), is that nothing is ever too much. Wearing head-to-toe paillettes becomes an ordinary  thing

Belted coat

  Friday is finally here and as we say in French « Vendredi, tout est permis » (« Friday, everything’s okay » – don’t ask, I don’t know why especially on this day either). Therefore, instead of posting many pictures of an outfit I love, I’m sharing a trick used by several bloggers and fashion editors I like. To give a coat a second life, add a belt to the waist. Put in bold AND underlined.
