Christmas day


How did we spend Christmas ? It was all about a whole week-end EATING with family at Guillaume's parents house, relaxing in front of the tv and spoiling ourselves with good things. Was really nice this year cause we had a calm and peaceful week-end all together, enjoying Gus's first Christmas with all of us. (Was so sweet !). We all had a few presents to share, but the ones we had to give to each other (Guillaume and Me :D) will arrive in a few weeks since they've been ordered on the Net. Plus the fact our birthdays are arriving soon (14th of January for Guillaume and 15th of February for me). I think I will make a big post with all the presents I received. Anyways, I hope your festive season was as good as ours and I can't wait to read about what  you've got from Santa... :)

Frustration reported


Ok. Remember Thursday, the 17th of last month, Versace for HM collection release date. (Yes, about 1 month ago now, time it took for me to get over it !). Well after a day off just for the special occasion, and not finding anything, I came back home completely exhausted from the whole journey finding there weren't any stores selling the collection in my place although I had checked on the Net. (I won't describe much more my journey as it was worse than ever :( ) 
Sometimes, when I get really frustrated about something or coming back home with empty hands after having big expectations, I always have to spend a little something just to get that feeling of self satisfaction. Yes I know that makes you think that I'm a total shopaholic but guess what... I am ! haha... So coming back home that day, I decided to spend my money on something interesting and this time, my frustation money went on... 


Merry Christmas

JOYEUX NOEL à vous tous ! J'espère que vous avez passé une merveilleuse journée de fêtes :) Je vous promet déjà de vous dire et de vous montrer plus en actualisant ce lieu plus souvent... Restez à l'écoute...

First and only purchases in London


Wanted to try this new Rimmel collection by Kate Moss so bad, so I bought some in London at Boots store. Really happy with it... I'll show some of the lipstick shades in an upcoming post.


72 hours in London

STARBUCKS BABY :)
Landed Thursday morning from a 72 hours trip in London. Didn't do a lot (weather was horrible) just went to see family. This explains the quick post on Wednesday and my lack of news in the past days due to my limitede access to the Net. 
Here are a few mixed pics from the trip (phone and cam).

'Best friends' afternoon


Sorry for all those technical issues lately that's why I'm late on this. Didn't have access till now but still wanted to keep the posts organisation, (writing to you from London !) explaining why this post was meant to be posted on Sunday, and is today. Back to the main post of the day ! Here it is, 'best friends' shooting promised here, afternoon where we had a lot of fun as we usually do, by hanging out with each other. It was quite cold (even if you can't really see it by what I'm wearing, except for the big fake-fur scarf) and we simply cheered ourselves up to get warmer.

After the show outfit


I wanted to relax a little with my man, after the show, and he came with the idea to go and have a drink out. Had to get back home to change, and this is the outfit I wore, keeping the extravagance of the hairstyle and according it to my crazy JC Wedges + Desigual Paris skirt.  Can you spot the Eiffel tower on the skirt and what do you think ?

Le Balcon new collection release


Remember this post talking about an upcoming event ? Well, last month, on the 26th, I took part to a parade-show, for the concept store's new winter collection.
We were 25 on stage, presenting clothes, shoes and accessories from different brands such as VILA, MARC JACOBS, SWILDENS, ISABEL MARANT, PIECES, PETIT BATEAU and more... We were accompanied by a story-teller retracing the clothes's history through chosen themes : the 50's and 70's. And of course, a sensational music :)

9ZO


Found a brand new background to take pictures. 9ZO stands out for 90 my departement number for Belfort in France. You can find a lot of graffiti like these dispatched here and there in the city (still have old pics to show you from some other tag somewhere) and this one couldn't match my Sunday outfit better. Grey, silver and BLACK... again !

Concept Store : Le Balcon


Here is my favourite shop in my city. It's a concept store, which is actually what I prefer in it : when you go shopping, you can stay there to rest a little and have a nice cup of tea (it asks so much efforts to choose between so many nice things haha ;p), read a magazine issue or even have the entire shop dedicated to a special occasion! I just wanted to give you a quick tour of it before a special event coming up in partnership with the 2 managers. You'll soon discover what it's all about :) For now, a few pics of the place with my favourite items.

(Aaahhh 24' second and end: FRINGE DRESS and LEATHER JACKET... Want them ! / Aaahhh 24' seconde et fin: ROBE A FRANGES et VESTE EN CUIR... Je les veux !)

Yes... you've heard about it. It's everywhere on TV !
I'm quite late on this post, (as usual) since it's been ready from the beginning of November, but I absolutely wanted to have the ad video on here.
Her house, her rules...our pleasure :)


11.11.11


Pleated below-the-knee skirt and Vintage gloves : outfit created for the 11 November 2011, a day which is holiday in France in memory of the soldiers who died for the country. Guillaume had a memorial march in the morning and I had to rejoin him to the park where the event took place to have lunch in  town afterwards. For the occasion, I decided to highlight the below-the-knee skirt trend which is a must for the new season to come as seen on several runways.

Jupe plissée en dessous du genou et gants Vintage : tenue créée pour le 11 Novembre 2011, un jour férié en France en mémoire des soldats morts pour le pays. Guillaume avait une marche commémorative dans la matinée et je devais le rejoindre dans le parc où l'évènement a eu lieu pour déjeuner en ville par la suite. Pour l'occasion, j'ai décidé de mettre en avant la tendance de la jupe plissée en dessous du genou qui est un must pour la nouvelle saison à venir comme vu sur plusieurs défilés.

New shopping



I usually don't give the name of the local shops where I go shopping, but here is an exception. I thought it would be a good idea for you to discover one of them.
After my trip to Dijon, where we actually waited 1 hour before catching the train to go back to Belfort without any possibilities to go to HM in the center of Mulhouse (I need to get their floppy hats sooo bad, before people go crazy for the Versace collection coming in stores in about 2 weeks now :D), I was definitely frustrated and folded back on this local store called 'NULLE PART AILLEURS' situated in the commercial area at the center of Belfort.
Went to get those 3 beauties which had already caught my eye, a few weeks earlier.


Trip to Dijon

 

Hey guys !
Just a little fashion for this post, summary of last wednesday, where I went on a trip with work for the launch of the new train making you travel from Belfort to Dijon in less than 2 hours. I have to say Dijon is a very nice city !! We had the chance to have a personal guide who gave us a tour of the city (1H30 I especially appreciated :D), and then had lunch at the Sofitel, 5 stars establishment situated next to the train station. UNFORTUNATELY, I was not able to take any pictures from the lunch at the hotel (really sad :( ), I didn't have enough battery (all pics - pretty good quality - were taken with my Samsung S II !), but you'll still have a glimpse of the city looks like !

B and B



B and B stands out for : Blue and Brown, a colour combination I highly appreciate these past fall days to have fun in the leaves :). With this outfit, my classic camel bag matching my belt (Vintage bag which also appears in the previous post). What do you think about this colour combination ?

Vintage bags


As mentioned in this post and here , when I shop in Flea Markets, my biggest heartbreaks goes to bags. Here are most of them photographed with my favourite scarves.

LOCAL STORE CACHEMIRE SWEATER
SANDRO WEDGES

Tripod, remote controller and a little concentration. First pics taken by myself at home since Guillaume is at work for the whole week. Wanted to share this basic look from this WE (1st because it's very recent for once) and 2nd to show you my brand new SANDRO ankle boots worn.

Trépied, télécommande et un peu de concentration. Premières photos prises seule à la maison puisque Guillaume est au travail jusqu'à Vendredi. Je tenais à partager cette tenue basique de ce WE (premièrement car elle très récente pour une fois :D) et deuxièmement pour vous montrer ma nouvelle paire de boots SANDRO porté.

Just found this quote on the agency's social network. It just completes my favorite quote: 'Who doesn't try anything, won't get anything!'. INSPIRATION.

'Dans 20 ans à partir de maintenant, vous serez plus déçus par les choses que vous n'avez pas faites que par celle que vous avez faites. Alors traversez les frontières. Voguez loin du port. Explorez. Rêvez. Découvrez.'  
Juste une citation découverte sur le réseau social de l'agence. Elle viens compléter ma citation fétiche : 'Qui ne tente rien n'as rien!'. INSPIRATION.

1st Fall outfit


Here it is ! We were stuck in between 2 seasons so far which made morning/evening dress-up decisions quite hard these last days, although... that's it : I think cold is here for good now :( In any case I wanted my 1st fall outfit to have brown and camel tones in it. It also had to be cosy and warm because that day I had to go to the flea market and it was NOT sunny at all in the first place. Anyways, I ended up taking off/puting back my fake fur jacket all day long. Easy casual look ! Let me know what you think...

Casual Sunday


A very casual look for a very casual Sunday in spring. Just went for a walk with Guillaume and Gus during the 1st rays of sun. A touch of spring before talking about the fall and winter season to come. For the outfit : my beloved leather black mini skirt which must be part of my oldest clothes, a confortable pair of tights, a comfy sweater with some of my favourite cities, my beloved black satchel bag (when it was still in good condition :o). I'm not even talking about my boots cause I need a new decent pair of UGG before big cold arrives this winter. Cheap alike ones don't last for long. That task is not even on my wishlist but on my to-do list since the ones here are just ruined...

Flea Markets


One place where I especially like to shop interesting things are flea markets. I love to fall on beautiful pieces full of history and memories. A good way to find inspiration. I think I own that from my mum cause she use to bring me with her to charity shops in London when I was a kid (LONDON - where you can find the best flea markets on earth !). The smell of old leather or what I look for the most: vintage bags. A future post will deal with all the nice bags I found, but for now, here are some of the wonders discovered walking through the flea markets near my home.

Le Chenois


These are the moments I treasure the most : Week-End with my love...ahah !!!
Nothing more relaxing and distressful than to go and have a walk with Guillaume to a horse carriage nearby : Le Chenois. I don't know if it's because I use to spend my entire week-sends in this place as a kid, but I just feel complete when I go get fresh air from it. Horses are of course a great inspiration for people looking for calm and serenity. I've always been attached to horses as far as I can remember. My first beyond any dreams I had when I was younger was to ride them, and it finally came true of course (for some reasons, I used to think it would never happen, I still don't have a clue why ?!? :s)
Growing up, I notice my number 1 passion hasn't left me at all.
I always see something inspirationnal in horse-riding items, or riding outfits, or even horses themselves. They have always inspired me strenght, beauty and elegance. 
Another thing I share with 'My Icon' which I talked about HERE

Don't be shy !


Who would have thought (for those living in France) that these pics were taken only 2 weeks ago during our last hot WE ?
It was so good to feel the last rays of summer sun on my skin, I couldn't avoid wearing this ripped jeans dress, for a chill' out afternoon in nature with my 2 Gs.
The title let's you imagine what I'm gonna say next : Yes people, I haven't read anything about your thoughts, good or bad, since I started this blog. I already had feedback (quite positive actually) on the following sites where I've put a link to the blog such as : CHICTOPIA, CHICISIMOLOOKBOOK and FACEBOOK. But nothing here, which is actually sad since this is the major place where we can share shopping and style tips, aswell as common tastes for anything. So as I said, don't be shy and please feel free to leave anything you like. Hope to read you soon...
