Boots

    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

Lace & suede

… Just another walk in Notting Hill on a casual Tuesday with a plunging lace neckline, you know…  Outfit : Jacket – Topshop / Top – Topshop / Jeans – Monki (old) / Converse on NET-A-PORTER.COM / Bag – Monoprix Photos : Diane S. …

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

Suede skirt outfit

   Last Saturday I discovered a bit more about my neighbourhood. My mother and sister were in town so we decided to enjoy the only sunny day we had in four days (thank you London) by going to the Broadway market. I recommend it to anyone who’s around: this is a lovely place to go to (make sure you stop by the Hackney city farm and watch the beautifully feathered

Patent skirt #2

   This is me acting like I’m not totally FREEZING in the London cold. You’d certainly see goose bumps on my arms if you’d zoom. … Photos: Leslie T. Outfit: Jumper – Uniqlo / Skirt – Zara (old) / Shoes – Sarenza / Bag – Zara  

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

Night shot

  One of the reasons I am excited for summer to finally come is that I will be able to take pictures after five without having red eyes. I could have waited for the morning though – and a proper light. But truth is I was wearing this gorgeous vintage buttoned suede skirt for the third day (almost) in a row, and it was time to shoot it before I

Leather pants

  When I decided to move to England, I first thought my daily life would be filled with tea times and biscuits. But after a week accross the sea, I realised cupcakes would be a big part of it too. In one week time, I have already established my headquarters in this too-English-to-be-true Primrose bakery. The waitress doesn’t know my name yet, but I can assure you she will by

Chalet life part 2

  Now I am back in Paris, I miss this landscape terribly. More than a beautiful place to wake up to, it (and its cold weather) also remains a relevant excuse to wear my faux fur all the time. Do I have to precise having it on feels like being hugged by a bear (weird comparison, I’ll give you that)? I think not. Bring the cold, Paris – I’m waiting
