STAY WARM LADIES !







 LOOK DU JOUR :
Grey Knit Coat (ZARA - sold out - see similar here)
Turtleneck Sweater (JENNYFER)
Grey Wrap Split Skirt (ASOS)
Dark Grey Over Knee Boots (PUBLIC DESIRE)
Grey Tote Clutch Bag (CHARLES & KEITH)
Grey See Through Tights (NEW LOOK)
Light Grey Gloves (PRIMARK)

I feel it in my fingers. I feel it in my toes… Cold weather is upon us.

I really find myself lucky to live in a place where winter visits us once a year. I love winter holidays, I love hot chocolate, I love to see how cold weather brings people together and I love long hugs to keep warm.

But unfortunately not all is joy and jolly in a cold season. For example, finding a cute outfit that works in this temperamental weather it can become very annoying. How can we manage to look effortlessly chic AND warm, without looking like a snow man? This is the big dilemma of each cold season, for us fashion challenged creatures.

Still, just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to giving up on style, it just means we all have to think a bit more creatively when getting dressed in the morning.

So this year, when the temperatures drop, instead of sacrificing style for comfort, start looking your best, by investing in a great looking coat. Go for a slightly oversized coat that you can easily wear with some layers underneath. Everybody owns a black coat, so why not stand out with a lighter outerwear color? Turn heads this season in a chic grey long line coat. Mine is from Zara and I simply adore its knit soft fabric – it screams warm and cosy. Moreover, the large collar gives a standout silhouette. And what I love the most about this item is its versatility: this coat fits with all types of looks - classy or casual.

Second trick: Let your boots steal the show. Show them off by pairing them with a wrap split skirt. Use them as a jumping off point to put together a great new inventive outfit, rather than just throwing them on with just anything.

Bonus trick: if you feel like this winter, all turns into age of ice, pair the wrap skirt with some jeans or pants underneath, instead of thights. It keeps the heath and the chic J

Chances are, you have a turtleneck somewhere in your winter wardrobe. This basic is having a major moment this season. Use it to complete any stylish look when freezing. This is also a great solution for people who don’t like to wrap up into big scarfs.


P.S : Stay warm, ladies! Stay warm…  Great style—even in the depths of winter—is very possible ;)

THE ETHNIC KIMONO JACKET : A VERSATILE FASHION ITEM





LOOK DU JOUR :
Ethnic Print Loose Kimono Jacket : DRESSLINK ( here )
Beige Asymmetric Layered Top : H&M  ( here )
Blue Skinny Jeans : BERSHKA 
Nude V Bar Clutch : ASOS ( here )
Bird Shape Ring : MISS SIXTY 
Nude Stilettos : LOUBOUTIN 

I'm definitely becoming an ethnic jacket addict. And when a trend becomes a crush I must admit that I start to create an entire collection around it. In this rhythm, my wardrobe will soon become a museum :D

But how can I stop collecting them when chic ethnic jackets spice up any boring traditional look. 
The jacket I'm wearing is from DRESSLINK and it instantly catched my eye wth its incredible pattern and colors

For a more harmonious result, I extended the colors of the jacket on the other articles of the outfit. 
I love to layer so this is what I did with the top of my look, and I kept it chic by blending the bohemian of the jacket with elegant clutch and heels.

This kind of jackets are so versatile that you can wear them everywhere : from a simple walk to a night out with friends or lover (shoes make the difference). 
It was also my choice of outfit for visiting the Confluence Museum at Lyon. There, I gave up to the heels and I opted for some nude flats : comfortable shoes are more appropiate for enormous quiet museums.

CULOTTES : The Trend Shock !






LOOK DU JOUR :
Grey Elasticized Back Culottes : FOREVER 21 ( here )
White Crop Top : BOOHOO 
Patchwork Clutch : NEW LOOK 
White Stilettos : Christian Louboution 

It happens every season: The Trend Shock ! It’s that trend that you wish you could pull off without looking ridiculous, but you’re pretty sure is going to be a lost cause. Wearing culottes can be tricky, given its swingy volume and unpredictable length. 

So, if you're into trying this trend, keep these 5 tips in mind, when shopping for culottes : 
1. They are generally high-waisted, so they should fit around the waist to really accentuate it
2. Buy your first couple of pairs in classic colours that will pair with most of what you have in your closet
3. Go for a clean, simple style that’s not too voluminous at first—so you can get used to the look
4. If you’re bothered by the length, add a heel then look again
5. Culottes go best with a more slim cut, fitted or cropped top : tiny tops, tucked blouses, & bustiers help create a balanced silhouette

Have a wonderful shopping session !! kisses :*

FASHION TREND : Jumpsuits & Rompers



LOOK DU JOUR :
Chiffon Deep V-Neck Flower Print Jumpsuit : DRESSLINK ( here )
Dark yellow cami top : NEW LOOK ( here )
Rusty Brown Folding Clutch 
Brown Sandals : NEW LOOK 
Mid Finger Rings : MISS SIXTY 

Rompers and jumpsuits have recently hit a new level of popularity.Still I must admit that this kind of trend was never on my taste: a romper can be very tricky to pull off for a small girl like me.
But I always wished that one day a romper could fit me because I found this item so comfortable and chic - it's really every lazy stylish girl’s dream! :))) All the rompers that I have tried, up to now, were whether too long, or too large... until recently... when I found my perfect match  <3
I'm talking about a pretty 60’s inspired jumpsuit with a slight dose of 70’s, that you can find on the site of DRESSLINK at a defying price
Super short, flirty, retro flower print, long sleeves, plunging neckline, this kind of item looks amazing with wedges and super high 70’s style heels. To enhance the retro-hippie vibe I used a thin twisted belt and my favorite folding clutch, in the same tones of rusty brown (the star color of fall)
What I love about this trend is that although at first sight it might seem very niche like, it’s pretty versatile. Like a flirty dress basically, which it actually looks like. It’s all about the cuts, styles, designs, colors, patterns, fabrics, length (varieties of short, way above the knee). All these will make some rompers great for music festivals, others for the beach, others for going out in the evening, others for casual weekends. It all depends on the romper AND the shoes.
Overall, the trend is really versatile — and that’s why you should totally try it out <3

MAXI SKIRT : Try The Effortless Summer Trend





LOOK DU JOUR :
White Boat Neck Hollow Lace Crop Blouse : SHEINSIDE ( here )
Pink Elastic Waist Drawstring Pleated Chiffon Skirt : SHEINSIDE ( here )
Beige Floppy Hat : A SUNDAY FAIR IN LYON 

Summertime style has such an effortless vibe and so many trends can easily go from the beach to the bar — and that’s definitely the case with maxi skirts!

A few years ago, when maxi skirts started to make a big comeback, I was convinced that I could never wear one. I’m only 5’2, so I figured any maxi skirt out there would swallow me up and make me look ridiculous. Until, one day, I tried one on and fell in love. Now I realize that not only can you be petite and wear maxi skirts (they actually can make you look taller if styled correctly), but I know that anyone, no matter what shape or size, can wear them and look good.

Maxi skirts are are super easy to style and throw on, a look that takes you five minutes to put together but makes you look so chic !

Black crop top : ASOS ( here )
Yellow Capris Culottes : ZARA
Clutch <Make fashion not war> : CHANEL
Nude Stilettos 

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” ― Coco Chanel

He has done it again! If there’s one thing Karl Lagerfeld does well, it’s choosing themes. Novel themes. Just like his creations, Karl Lagerfeld’s shows are also designed to stun the fashion as well as media world with themes that resonate.

This new Chanel bag of Karl is simply giving me life ! It shouts a special message for freedom: “Make Fashion not War.”

It shows that Chanel women are free spirited and daring. They are independent, feminine and masculine in the same time, and do not care about social norms. Wearing Chanel gives you an image of Gabrielle Chanel. You’ll walk the streets with confidence and proudly.

Book clutch : The devil wears Prada
Nude stilettos : LOUBOUTIN 
Golden Watch : BY MARC JACOBS

"La femme... Elle sait divinement vous aimer, mais elle peut aussi vous quitter. La femme pardonne, mais n’oublie pas. Elle peut vous apporter le paradis sur terre ou elle peut vous envoyer en enfer ... en général à brûler dans les flammes de la nostalgie ... Elle peut vous donner tout ce qu'elle a de plus beau ou exactement le contraire. Une femme peut dire comme vous, et faire quand même ce qu'elle veut. Vous pouvez avoir la femme pour toute votre vie ou même pas pour une seconde.

La femme et capable du pire mais même comme ça vous allez l'aimer et vous aurez toujours envie d'elle, même comme ça, vous ne pouvez pas vivre sans elle. Elle est peut-être tout cela, mais si vous ne la forcez pas à utiliser ce qu'elle a appris en enfer, elle peut être une belle créature qui sent la poudre et dont la présence est addictif. Si vous ne la forcez pas en être autrement, elle sera le miel de vos cafés du matin ... Chaque matin, pour le reste de votre vie

Maintenant, mon ami, verse un peu de vérité dans ton verre ... "

Pentru ele, cu drag...




Intotdeauna mi-am dorit sa am oameni de calitate alaturi de mine, persoane care demonstreaza ca au valori si abilitati ce merita respectate. Oameni care merita sa le acorzi toata increderea si respectul. Si vreau sa cred ca am reusit acest pariu cu viata.

Zilele-astea, intorcandu-ma acasa dupa aproape 3 ani de zile, mi-am dat seama că o persoana care iti este draga, care a fost mereu langa tine ramane acolo chiar dacă uneori timpul si distanta va despart. 
Un prieten adevarat nu e acela pe care il ai zilnic lângă tine, ci acela cu care te intalnesti peste ani si chiar dacă nu ati mai vorbit poate deloc, totusi povestiti si va dati aceeasi îmbratisare cu dragoste ca si cand timpul nu s-ar fi scurs deloc. Acela a carei voci te bucuri sa o auzi chiar si dupa ani buni. 
Trecutul ramane mereu undeva in tine si din cand in când se reintalneste cu prezentul amintindu-ti de cine erai odata...

Oamenii dragi nu pleacă niciodata de langa noi, pentru ca oricat de departe ar fi ei sunt langa sufletul nostru, mereu vor fi. 

P.S. : Va asigur ca fetele mele nu au doar un chip angelic ci si un interior la fel de frumos... si astept sa va revad pe TOATE cu drag

LOOK DU JOUR :
See Through Black  Top
Light pink pleated skirt : TALLY WEIJL
Color Block Clutch : NEW LOOK
Flower Statement Necklace 
Beige Stilettos 

When it comes to clothes, little is needed to express your personality. More often, a print or an unique item is a great way to let someone know how you’re feeling or who you are (for the day)*
I must admit that there are days when I really feel like returing to the 50's era
The easiest way to tap into the retro movement of the 50's is by introducing a pleated skirt to your wardrobe. I found mine at Tally Weijl and it was love at first sight

Denim shorts : TALLY WEIJL (here)

<Beach please> Purse : NEW LOOK (here)
 
My little vacation to the sea is already over… unfortunately :(
It's been a wonderful weekend to the beaches near Montpellier, that left on my clothes and hair a unique sea scent; but also the memory of the fine sand and the burning sun on my skin 

A simple life is good with me. I don't need a whole lot. For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoot on a beach and I'm happy.

Last weekend I wanted to go to the sea just to say “Hi!”, just to make disappear my mad desire to see it, smell it and touch it.

SMALL HAPPINESS







"A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different."- Marianne Williamson



Think of her… think about all the things she did for you and all the things that she would still do just to make you happy. Think about your beginnings and the flower that you offered her at your first date. Remember her smile and the kiss just after that. Stop a second from whatever you do and send a thought towards her, towards the woman that is next to you. You surely love her. You surely love to make her happy.
