How surprising, I usually overthink various topics (from the emotional development of my children to worldwide geostrategy, which is quite a wide range of subjects). Continue reading “DEFEANING SILENCE”
Sorry to state this again and again: I love red, that hot, sensual, lively colour. I love red that instantaneously highlights and brightens an otherwise slightly neutral or demure outfit. Continue reading “MOTHER CHRISTMAS”
I had already mentioned in a post two years ago that, although my Instagram page might make you believe otherwise, I am absolutely not a “shopaholic”. Continue reading “ETHICAL CONSUMPTION”
Yes, I am indeed breaking the sacrosanct rule, the law according to which one leopard print item per silhouette is enough. Continue reading “ROARING”
We say the Monceau Park, the Montsouris Park and the Buttes-Chaumont Park but the Luxembourg Gardens, which are treasured by many Parisians, deserve their particular appellation. Continue reading “LUXEMBOURG GARDENS”
Wearing leather pants can be a perilous exercise. The piece is so connotated that it can easily become vulgar. The main trap to avoid, in my opinion, is to try and erotize the silhouette more than it already is. Continue reading “ROCK’N ROLL VIBES”
People often ask me if I like to shop. Those who don’t know me imagine that I raid the Avenue Montaigne on a weekly basis.
They couldn’t be further removed from the truth. Continue reading “CONFESSIONS OF A NON-SHOPAHOLIC”
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”
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”
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”
This vintage dress is incredible and dazzling with its intense color and endless fabric. So strong and intense that it cannot go unnoticed. Continue reading “LET’S GO BOLD”
Going up to a Parisian rooftop is the perfect opportunity to talk about Tennessee Williams, as a wink to his famous “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”. Continue reading “CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF”
Thanks to the three children that surround me every day, I am the witness to brilliant comebacks and hilarious retorts.
And today, a selection of what could turn out to be an inspiring thematic: #DressUpYourLife: Continue reading “#DRESSUPYOURLIFE”
I recently stumbled upon the Instagram page of a very famous blogger who recently gave birth and has been bombarding her 10 million + followers with intimate pictures of her baby. The pictures feature her and the baby in the clinic room, in the arms of the father crying – the newborn baby’s every angle is given for the world to see. Continue reading “DIGITAL LIFE VERSUS REAL LIFE”
To paraphrase Loïc Prigent, who recently pulished “I Love Fashion But it’s Everything That I Hate”, I love Instagram but it’s everything that I hate too.
I love Instagram because it allows you to create a community of like-minded people, to discover new horizons and sometimes it even makes you meet beautiful people in real life. Continue reading “A LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH INSTAGRAM”
To paraphrase Gabrielle Chanel, one of my favorite colors is black (although, technically, black isn’t really a color but still). Continue reading “ALL BLACK”
Let’s talk about the Atelier Les Lyonnes.
Its founder, the utterly charming Anne-Claire Thiriot, decided to give spats a new life. The bet was a risky one, given that the accessory is rather dated.
And yet, the bet was worth it because she has, in a nutshell, given it a new life. Continue reading “ATELIER LES LYONNES”
In my wildest dreams, I re-write the script for my life and I become a secret agent (the movie version, because in real life it looks like a pretty dirty job). Continue reading “FROM PARIS WITH LOVE”
How can you not think of Marlene Dietrich as the Blue Angel when it comes to the Yves Saint Laurent smoking suit?
I believe that it is perfectly possible to be furiously feminine in a three-piece suit and absolutely masculine in a dress. Continue reading “MASCULINE/FEMININE”
