INTO THE BLUE

It is simply delightful to wear this Jason Wu dress, which I find absolutely gorgeous, during the festive season. The slightly dramatic bejeweled neckline is perfectly balanced out by the aerial grace of the skirt. Continue reading “INTO THE BLUE”

MAHARANI

This beautiful little gem is from Needle & Thread, an English brand founded in 2013, whose sophisticated, supremely feminine style is instantly recognisable due to the embroideries and sequins present in each collection. Continue reading “MAHARANI”

UNCHAINED

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”

A LIFE OF SIN

What my 4-year-old daughter calls my « princess dress » is in fact a wedding gown. My wedding gown. A wedding gown that I never got to wear seeing as I never got married (although everything was ready: the contract, the ring, the ceremony… but we ended changing our minds and preferring a life of sin).

A stunning vintage Yolanda dress from the sixties. I admire the refinement of the embellished collar but I admire way it falls and flows perfectly. The coral-beset lady is older than me but it would make any young woman pale in comparison given its holding (so imagine how pale this 42-year-old young woman looks).

CHAMPAGNE!

The champagne color of this dress goes perfectly with the season’s flamboyant hues. I have a soft spot for this warm color that I find so very becoming and that always makes me think of the festive and sensual Champagne wine that I love so much. Continue reading “CHAMPAGNE!”

TREASURE HUNT

I absolutely adore Carolina Herrera. The brand and the person. The gorgeous woman, with her atypical life path and her iron will manages to imprint a definite femininity and flawless taste in every one of her collections. Continue reading “TREASURE HUNT”

GREEK STYLE

This gown is spectacular. The delicacy of the embroideries gives it a precious aspect and its light pleats inevitably reminds one of Greek goddesses – neoclassical version. From time to time it feels good to be a Greek goddess, right. Continue reading “GREEK STYLE”

What an amazing vintage Castillo dress…

Antonio del Castillo is a remarkable designer who worked with the greatest fashion houses – Paquin, Piguet, Chanel, Elizabeth Arden and Lanvin – before opening his own house in the 60’s. Continue reading “CASTILLO”
