This is a morning like no other. Obviously. Let’s be honest for a minute.
During week time, mornings – at my place at least – are closer to a very controlled speed race but a speed race nonetheless. Continue reading “THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE – PART 11”
How could I be a decent parisienne who loves the history of fashion and not talk about the Galliera Palace? Well, I couldn’t, because it’s Paris fashion museum.
I couldn’t for several reasons. Continue reading “GALLIERA – PARIS”
Urban honey… urban honey?
Let’s talk about Audric de Campeau’s fabulous initiative, or the installation of beehives on the roofs of Parisian monuments.
Why the terms “urban honey”, you might ask? Continue reading “LE MIEL DE PARIS”
I nearly died during this photo shoot. Yes, yes, yes. I was calmly walking over to the place where Cedric, my fully equipped photographer (top quality lens, integrated light box and all that not-so-discrete attire). Continue reading “THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE – PART 10”
One never highlights their back enough, which is a shame given how sensual a back can be.
I’ve chosen to address this issue by wearing this chain-covered vintage dress.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking. Continue reading “UNCHAINED”
Today, I want to tell you about a lawyer: Suzanne Ducoté.
A lawyer who chose another path.
Suzanne’s bubbly personality, beautiful energy and intelligence set her up for a brilliant, intellectually stimulating career as a business lawyer. Continue reading “DUCOTÉ & CÔTE”
Born in 2015, Maison Château Rouge is the Parisian brand with an African soul, as said by its creator, Youssouf Fofana, who inspires himself from his own Senegalese heritage, as well as in traditional African wax prints to drape the Parisian’s urban silhouette. Continue reading “MAISON CHATEAU ROUGE”
Varadi is all about the quality of the leather, the arch of each sole and the surprising sensation of comfort one feels when wearing Varadi heels, though they are undeniably very high.
Those little details that make a big difference, right. Continue reading “VARADI x JD BAROCCA”
“Love at first sight”. That’s how I’d describe my experience with Delvaux.
This beautiful house was created in 1829, which makes it the oldest fine leather goods house in the world and one of Belgium’s national jewels. Continue reading “DELVAUX”
Those who’ve been following my adventure since the very beginning are well aware of my love for boating.
The setting has changed a little and so have the type and the size of the boat: may I introduce this gorgeous 56ft long sailing boat. Continue reading “LIBERTY”
We are constantly bombarded with tutorials, shows and articles that teach us the supposed ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of fashion, so we all pretty much know the steps to look like an honest woman on the street. Continue reading “TEN COMMANDMENTS OF STYLE”
Let’s talk about candles for a minute, shall we?
The subject may sound trivial but it isn’t, given that our habit of lighting candles to fill our homes with sweet fragrances participates directly in domestic pollution. Continue reading “UN SOIR A L’OPERA CANDLES”
Let’s talk about the Lancaster Hotel. This beautiful haussmannien hotel, located right off the Champs-Elysées, is a historical marvel.
The place’s intense calmness creates a stark contrast with the bustling Champs-Elysées. Continue reading “LANCASTER HOTEL – PARIS”
The holidays and the beautiful weather have allowed me to post photos and videos of me on a gorgeous sailing boat. These posts make it seem like my life is magazine material. Continue reading “THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE – PART 9”
Luxury is not synonymous with a price tag but resides in the correlation between quality and a coherent price. This is why I wanted to present this outfit to you, although it certainly didn’t break the bank. Continue reading “MONEY CAN’T BUY STYLE”
Is a moment of outrage allowed? I guess so.
I have written about my love for Naomi Wolf’s “Beauty Myth”, published in 1990, on a previous occasion. The essay explores how women were, and continue to be, alienated by unrealistic diktats around physical perfection, desirability and the constant staging of their bodies as sexual objects. Continue reading “THE BEAUTY MYTH – PART 2”
Bikini pictures, or the perfect occasion of talking about Naomi Wolf.
I have infinite admiration for the American essayist who published her famous “Beauty Myth” in 1990. Continue reading “THE BEAUTY MYTH”
I clearly love Dolce & Gabbana’s ultra-femininity, which has always represented the quintessence of the Italian dolce vita for me: the 60’s, the sun, femininity, voluptuousness, grace and love. Continue reading “DOLCE VITA”
This item is a UFO: a playsuit by Victoria Beckham designed for target, the massive U.S. department store. Indeed, Victoria Beckham presented Target with an affordable 150-piece-collection in Spring 2017, which includes a line for plus-size women and for children. In all fairness, it’s quite a success. Continue reading “ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK”
You know my love for Petitjean Paris.
I love the refinement and the sense of freshness that always transpires in founder Léa Petitjean’s work. It so happens that Léa expanded the range of her creations last year. Continue reading “PETITJEAN PARIS”
