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

Jardin des Tuileries

Just to be clear: I’m not back in Paris for good. I just popped in there for two days before starting work to check how beautiful the city is when you no longer live there.  Homesick, me? Mmh. Between meeting friends and family, I used my tourist spare time to walk in the Jardin des Tuileries on a Saturday morning (which, trust me, DOES NOT happen to actual Parisians) with my

Winter colours

  Let’s clarify something right now: I will NOT be in New York City this week. Not that I haven’t been invited at all, I am only too busy growing out my fringe and wandering around in leather pants (which requires more attention than you might think). I’m sure Victoria won’t take it personally.  Regarding my translucent hand on the next photo, let’s just say London is not the best place to

Grey faux fur

  Yes, this grey faux fur coat is as comfy and soft as it looks like. Do I need to say I will probably wear it in the next 5 posts?  I think not. … Photos: Diane S. Outfit: Coat – New Look on Asos / Top – Asos / Skirt – Asos (note to self: try other e-shops. Or at least pretend to) / Shoes – Asos (ok, it’s

Bon voyage

     Today is my last day in Paris (and I’ve almost finished packing). Tomorrow I’ll be moving to London and getting amazed by every single street, shop, pavement and clean tube station. I am beyond excited about this life change – but I wish I could look three months ahead to check whether everything is alright… or not. L’aventure!, as we say here.  Anyway, you’ll get some news very

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.

Sunny autumn

  As much as I can affirm summer was terrible this year, autumn is as wonderful as it could possibly be (at least wonderful enough to get me giving up on my bed & series day off plan – and that takes a lot).  Sunny and chilly, just the way I like it. A perfect weather for long walks in the streets of Paris, high neck jumpers and hot chocolate breaks

Swinging 60’s

  I’m certainly not being very eccentric when saying trends and looks from the 60’s are my favourites this year, but here I go. I reckon I like them that much because they are either simple and feminine. Plus, I always had a thing for mini skirts and knitwear. OK, the truth is I fell in love with Françoise Hardy’s style and never want to dress in any other way than hers. And I’m probably not

Navy mood

  As we step deeper into winter, I am making a new resolution : to abandon the idea of wearing any other tops than warm jumpers. Therefore, I have gathered a petite collection of those wool (ok, not all of them are made of it -polyester fabric is also allowed in my wardrobe) beauties. And it definitely makes my life easier in the morning. Less time spent on choosing clothes,
