On the Go : Last hours...

Here is the last pictures for the 'On the Go' serie. I wanted them kinda dark cause I was a little in that state of mind at that time. Last walk in the woods with my 2 Gs, enjoying the last cuddles, kisses and big 'all-together-hugs' before a long time (3 weeks yesterday !). I'm getting all emotional, so let's get to the point ; I'll just leave you with the pictures which speaks for themselves. Have a good evening ! xx

PS : Aaliyah - I Miss You

PPS : Need to either get rid of this pair of tights or get more holes in them even if it's not fashionable anymore oh well... What do you think ?!

On the Go : Fourrure et Queue de Pie

Hello guys ! Hope you've had a very good week-end and an exellent start of the week :) Here I am back with the second look from the 'On the Go' serie, starring pieces I had not worn for a long time : HM faux fur scarf, MANGO tailcoat, JULES top, ZARA pants and MONOPRIX bag. That's for the old stuff. New In is those pointy patent black pumps that I wanted for a long time and absolutely adore. Confortable and very fashionable at the same time, the special cut detail at the back of the shoe remains discreet but underlines the originality of the simple designed shoe. 
I must also tell you, it's such a pleasure to have time to post and be able to share looks without any time pressure, I really appreciate it. Even better since I get to hear and read what you think, I wanted to thank you through this post for the latest *Jolly* thoughts left around this place (and co : INSTA, FB...)  these past days, it's a real motivation for me to do my best and keep this place updated as often as possible. I'm already looking forward to hear much much more...

Maison Martin Margiela x HM

'Considered as one of the most unusual and creative aswell as misterious designer of his generation, Martin Margiela founded in 1988, with Jenny Meirens its own brand under the name Maison Martin Margiela. Cuts builted-deconstructed, oversize volumes, futuristic materials or recycled monochrome fabrics, subversive aesthetic, no-logo clothing, unusual interiors ... The universe of Maison Martin Margiela is like no other.' via VOGUE.FR

Everything I love !!! Out since the 15th of November, in selected stores worldwide, I know already that I won't be able to grab the pieces I'm in love with (see pictures below) and even if I think I would'nt have bought much, only for 2 or 3 accessories/shoes and clothes in this collection because we are actually talking about statement pieces which stands out for themselves and will definetely add THE thing to an outfit, I've decided to share my heartbreaks with you.

PS : Michael Jackson - Pretty young thing

On the Go : New In JNY Cardigan

Another purchase 'made in JENNYFER'  is this cosy knitted cardigan, perfect for cold winter showing up. That day, we went for a walk in a park with Gusti where we wanted to present him to the deers, but unfortunately the weather did not allow us to see them. This is the first of the three looks shot by Guillaume the week before his departure. I called it the 'On the Go' serie !

New In : JNY wedges sneakers in black

First pair was such an enchantement, I had to go for the black version bought 2 or 3 weeks ago. Gosh I just can't get enough of them !!!

PS : Michael Jackson - I just can't stop loving you

La première paire a été un tel enchantement, je devais me procurer la version noire acheté il y a 2 ou 3 semaines. C'est dingue comme je ne peux plus me passer d'elle !!!

Fall is definitely here !

And here is the first Fall outfit, coming back to dark colors a little after this colorful summer under the sun, back to black and cold :( Well, let's see the bright side of life... Here's my new favorite item for this November start ! Doesn't it look so much like an HERMES Kelly Bag ??! Found it in a flea market on a Sunday afternoon back in September, I sent Guillaume to negociate it for me (guys always look cute to old womens when they come to buy something for their girlfriend who just passed the item in revue with heart in her eyes haha...) and he got it for me at a very reasonnable price :) Can't get enough of my new toy, I guess you will see it in a lot of my upcoming outfits !

Indian skull sweater

Sorry for my absence before coming back to full blogging at the end of this week-end, but I had a really good reason... I've been waiting for the love of my life to come back home from a long 3 weeks duty before going back for another very long 6 months one. Trying to soak up every minute before his big departure... THIS MORNING :'( Gosh this is going to be hard ! I won't complain too much because we're alive and life is meant to be hard to make you understand that, but I'm going to miss him so much !!! I will need your advices and support during that time and hope to be able to share a lot with you guys in order to find a way not to think about it too much ! Before tears comes to my eyes, let's talk Fashion ! Here is a very recent purchase I wanted to talk to you about... Loose, confortable and still fashionable, here are the 3 terms to qualify this sweater. I combined it to the JENNYFER wedges sneakers of the same color (sneakers which will soon see a new pair coming to enlarge the collection !), a PIMKIE scarf with the same fall colors and (again !) JENNYFER denim jeans. For the accessories and coat to face this new Fall weather, I decided to wear my camel leather jacket (well I guess you can imagine it because it's not on the pictures :s) coordinated to the satchel bag both from local stores. What do you think ? I really like it :)

End of summer...

KANDEE Skinnie Bitch collection

You must all know about my love for the KANDEE brand by now. Well, new collection has came out and it is to me the best KANDEE collection ever since its creation !! Josh Wayman a.k.a 'Mr KANDEE' has been really working hard to spoil us hihi :D
Every single piece matches my classical tastes with a little bit of pop in the colors inspired by candy that I love so much. They are flashy adding that twist to the fabulous crackeled leather fabric. And you want to know what's even better ?! 'Mr KANDEE' also worked on a new bag/clutch line for the collection giving more possibilities to expose your love for KANDEE... Wouldn't that be a perfect present for Christmas ?!

Brand new I Heart...

:) I HEART... evolves ! Happy to announce that from now on, you'll be able to find all the I HEART... posts in one and unique place since a new page has been created (also available fom the top section of the blog I HEART! tab) collecting all my heartbreaks, weither I'd buy them or not, simply sharing with you what I've been recently melting on. It will either be inspirational people and their work aswell as blogs I find interesting, pictures or stuff I see everyday, street art, but also and mostly I guess, new e-shops and brands discovered on the net, items I've shopped or some I would love to see in my wardrobe and anything my little heart desires :D I've been wanting to do this since the very first 'I HEART' post to be able to share much more with you... Let's go :)

:) J'AIME évolue! Heureuse de vous annoncer qu'à partir de maintenant, vous serez en mesure de trouver toutes les articles J'AIME...dans un seul et unique espace car une nouvelle page a été créée (également disponible depuis la partie supérieure du blog via l'onglet J'AIME! ) regroupant tous mes coups de coeur, que je veuille les acheter ou pas, afin de partager tout simplement avec vous ce sur quoi j'ai récemment fondu. Ce sera soit des personnes inspirantes et leur travail ainsi que des blogs que je trouve intéressants, des images ou des trucs que je vois tous les jours, de l'Art de rue, mais aussi, et surtout, je crois, de nouveaux e-shops et marques découvertes sur le net, articles achetés ou que je serais ravie de voir intégrer ma garde-robe et tout ce que mon petit coeur désire :) J'ai voulu faire ça depuis le tout premier article 'J'AIME' pour partager encore beaucoup plus avec vous... Allons-y :)

Black & White

And here is another summer outfit with neutral colors, different than all the other colorful summer outfits I've been showing you lately composed by very old pieces. Black and white is to me the easiest combination to create a simple yet detailed outfit with the Calvin Klein footprints on the tshirt which I like a lot, my old Snoopy silver watch and a DIY necklace made of an old smartphone jewel and a leather string. One small touch of color and new feature : my new purple sunnies from Europapark. Nothing more, nothing less !

Coral jumpsuit

So weird to think those pictures were taken about 2 weeks ago, by Guillaume who's actually in the South of France for work at the moment. Weather was still good and I was able to wear this light coral jumpsuit found at the same local rammage sale where I got this maxi turquoise dress. This time I matched the coral color to black details to make it stand out even more. What do you think ? Do you like it ?

Anna Dello Russo x HM

I discovered this good news going through one of the blog I like a lot 'THE FASHION BAMBI', and I guess a lot of you are already aware about this new collaboration : ANNA DELLO RUSSO x HM launched from the 4th of October in selected stores only (which means I won't even be able to put my hands on any of those beauties :'( ). If I had the choice and money I'd go for every single piece ! It's very outrageous and bling bling (everything I like about accessories in general either very discret or the opposite VERY bling bling) with that funky Anna touch (those golden trims proper to all that surrounds her) which adds so much to the entire collection.
An interview on HM's e-shop LIFESTYLE section is devoted to Anna explaining her inspirations since always and how she builded up this project. You should check it out, makes you realise the working-girl is really interesting beyond the fashion victim image she offers of herself and helps you understand the person inside the extravagant clothes and it accessories. You can also find a lot on her own blog. A true inspiration... Can't wait !

J'ai découvert cette bonne nouvelle en passant par l'un des blogs que j'aime beaucoup 'THE FASHION BAMBI', et je suppose que beaucoup d'entre vous sont déjà au courant de cette nouvelle collaboration : ANNA DELLO RUSSO x HM lancé à partir du 4 Octobre dans une sélection de magasins (ce qui signifie qu'il me sera impossible de mettre mes mains sur une de ces beautés :'( ). Si j'avais le choix et l'argent j'irais pour chaque pièce. C'est très choquant et bling bling (tout ce que j'aime pour les accessoires en général, soit très discret ou au contraire TRES bling bling) avec cette touche à la Anna (ces ornements propre à tout ce qui l'entoure), qui ajoute beaucoup à toute la collection.
Une interview dans la section HM LIFESTYLE sur l' e-shop est consacré à Anna expliquant ses inspirations depuis toujours et comment elle a mis en place ce projet. Vous devriez le consulter, car il fait prendre conscience que la working-girl est vraiment intéressante au-delà de l'image de fashion victim, qu'elle propose d'elle-même et vous aide à comprendre la personne à l'intérieur des vêtements extravagants et des it accessoires. Vous pouvez également trouver beaucoup d'infos sur son blog personnel. Une véritable source d'inspiration ... Très impatiente !

DIESEL tshirt...

...Worn at work, for confortness while staying fashionable. Bought in a really good store in Sochaux, on Julia's advices, the same shop where I found those STYLE AND CHIC pink shorts you liked a lot in this post. Associated to a dark grey blazer and some simple skinny jeans aswell as grey derbies to complete the whole 'ton-sur-ton' look, the tshirt adds that little twist with redish details and completes a perfect outfit for a random day at work. Tell me what you think :)

New In : JENNYFER Wedges Sneakers

This is my one and only purchase from my trip to Dijon... Which I found at Jennyfer ! It's a basic pair of sneakers with that extra wedge inside and were suppose to look alike Isabel Marant 's model or Lemaré, the ones I wanted to buy in the first place. If I have the luck to find another pair of Lemaré ones, I think I'll get them just for the awesome colours they have. But I had to get these straight away cause they were low-cost (10 times cheaper than the Isabel Marant original ones) and I badly wanted a pair for a long time. That's the thing with Jennyfer, when I need something really bad, I always find it THERE for low cost prices. And they're not even bad quality. Although at first, I thought some of their models looked kinda cheap and not really my taste, this pair was waiting for me to pick them, last pair available in my size in the whole store. Me and my occasional luck... let's just say they were meant to be mine haha :D Love them already !

C'est mon seul et unique achat de mon voyage à Dijon ... Trouvé chez Jennyfer! C'est une paire de baskets de base avec ce petit talon compensé en extra rappelant la célèbre paire d'Isabel Marant ou Lemaré, celle que je voulais acheter en premier lieu. Si j'ai la chance de trouver une autre paire de Lemaré, je pense que je me laisserai tenter juste pour les superbes couleurs proposées. Mais j'ai pu obtenir celle-ci immédiatement parce qu'elles étaient low-cost (10 fois moins chères que les originales d'Isabel Marant) et je voulais absolument une paire depuis longtemps. C'est le problème ou l'avantage avec Jennyfer, lorsque j'ai vraiment besoin de quelque chose, j'y trouve toujours ce que je veux à des prix plus que raisonnables. Il est vrai qu'il faut chercher un peu mais elles ne sont même pas de mauvaise qualité. Bien qu'au premier abord, il m'a semblé que certains de leurs modèles faisaient un peu 'bon marché' et n'étaient pas vraiment à mon goût, cette paire attendait que je vienne la chercher, la dernière disponible dans ma taille dans toute la boutique. Moi et ma chance occasionnelle ... disons simplement qu'elles étaient faites pour moi haha :D Je les aime déjà!

Welcome back in Dijon :)

28th July 2012 

The day just before the party, was the start of a very good weekend. Departure around 9 AM to be able to make the most of the day, and direction : DIJON. Together with our friends Graziella and Cyprien, after an exact 2 hour roadtrip we arrived at our destination.
Before heading to the historical center (part of the city where I 've already been the last time in this post and that I wanted to show to Guillaume so much :D) we actually wanted to have a look at the big shopping center 'La Toison d'Or' before it get's renovated. The building now looks like this...

Turquoise maxi dress

29th July 2012

Hey everyone ! Sorry for my absence, been quite busy these days... But anyway what about going back in time ? About a month ago, on Sunday, took place a very important date for my parent's in law : Guillaume's dad turned 50. A big party was held at Guillaume's old military building and everything went fantastic... Everyone had fun, ate very well and Guillaume's dad was the happiest person in the world...ESSENTIAL on that day ! Met a lot of new persons, all very nice and ended up wasted like everyone else haha... I chose for the occasion my turquoise dress bought on sale in a local rammage sale. I was supposed to wear it during my best childhood friend's wedding about a month ago, but fell so sick that day because of the sun,  it was just impossible to go :'( Eventhough I matched the table, colour and fabric of this dress are just wonderful. Its lightness and amazing colour makes this dress a 'dream' to wear. Nothing else to say cause it just stands out for itself especially for an elegant day or evening just matched to a different clutch and nice statement earrings as for this look but would also be perfect for a moment spent at the beach.

Russian Roulette

A simple preppy outfit for daily appointments, 2 weeks ago, highlighting one of my favourite cap, brought back home from a military operation by Guillaume. He always manage to bring me back something special, especially caps from different armies because he knows I'm a big fan. I've always had a "hat head" anyway :) What do you think about the whole look ?!

Flower Power

Hey my *Jolly* readers !!! What have you been up to since all this time...? For my part, I well took advantage of my 3 weeks holiday... Sorry if I haven't updated the blog that much but work has been a hassel lately so I really needed those couple of days to rest and chill out, enjoying good times with family and friends. What about a light flower printed dress with the perfect cut combined to a cute little red bag (made me think of a mini BALENCIAGA at first ;p) and round sunnies ?! Here is my outfit during a hot afternoon 3 weeks ago :)

New In : MODATOI Fushia wedges

Aren't they beautiful ?
Here is the lovely present my good friend Julia bought me back home a few weeks ago. She's got them in black, and when I saw them at her feet I literally melted, so she decided to bring me back a pair. What a sweet attention :)
She also communicated to me the e-shop's address where she got them from, for me to share it with you ;)

Ne sont-elles pas magnifiques ?!
Voici le beau cadeau que ma super pote Julia m'a ramené à la maison il ya quelques semaines. Elle les a en noir, et quand je les ai vus à ses pieds, j'ai littéralement fondu, alors elle a décidé de m' en ramener une paire. Quelle douce attention :)
Elle m'a également communiqué l'adresse du e-shop où elle les a shoppé, pour que je puisse la partager avec vous ;)

New In : CHLOE sunnies

Here they are finally !! After announcing the news about a month ago in this post, here is the surprise I was talking about...
My awesome CHLOE sunglasses... I am so GAGA about them ;)
Soon an outfit featuring those beauties !

Ça y est, les voilà enfin ! Après avoir annoncé la nouvelle il y a environ un mois dans cet article, voici la surprise dont je vous parlais ...
Mes superbes lunettes de soleil CHLOE... J'en suis tellement GAGA ;)
Bientôt une tenue mettant en vedette ces beautés !

Dinner at L'auberge du Lac

Here is the outfit I wore during an evening dinner about 3 weeks ago at l'Auberge du Lac near the Malsaucy Lake (already been there in this post !). I was suppose to bring you back mad pictures and videos of the festival 'Les Eurockéennes' which was taking place at the time (music festival during 3 days with this year : Wiz Khalifa, Kavinsky, Justice, Lana Del Rey and a lot more :'( ) but the experience turned out to be a disaster : tickets were collected a few hours before the opening, it was hell finding 2 places still available, and once on the site it started to rain really bad which forced us to come back home totally soaked after 10 minutes of music. LOL... Nothing good to take pictures at and believe me I wasn't laughing at the time !

PS : Thanks to the ones who still manage to take the cool videos :) / Merci à ceux qui ont pu prendre les superbes vidéos malgré tout :)

Hey guys ! Today I wanted to introduce you to the GLOSSYBOX concept.
About 2 months ago, I fell on BIRCHBOX which is a website based on sending you little pink boxes containing cosmetic samples from all kind of different brands for you to test them and give a complete feedback on each of them. Unfortunetaly BIRCHBOX is only available throughout the United States. Very interested by the whole concept, I decided to find the equivalence in France and searching the web I fell on GLOSSYBOX. That's been about 3 months I'm using the service now and I'm fully satisfied with my little pink boxes. Everything is gathered according to my tastes and needs (you fill in a profile form when you enter the concept for the 1st time with details on your skin, hair type etc...), then carefully packed to be sent to me once every month (usually the last week). You also have the possibility to buy products you liked the most directly from the website where discounts and direct connections to e-shops are available. Love it !
You will have my opinion on my little samples each month just after receiving the little pink box and after use to make you buy (or not !) cosmeto products you might already or perhaps never heard about. Feel free to give me your opinion, I would love to know what you think :)

FIMU 2012

Those pictures are quite old now since I had my computer problems, but I still wanted them to be published here since it was an interesting weekend and it actually appears I love one of the outfit I was wearing because of the little shirt I had on my back that day. It comes from HM and it has to me the perfect color for this year's summer. This pink aswell as baby blue...
FIMU stands out for International University Music Festival which takes place every year at the same period in the old part of Belfort but also for having fun, feeling free listening to different kind of music, eating all sorts of unhealthy but so tasty food (churros, ice-cream, french fries, hamburgers, Love apples etc...), appreciating good weather (for once !), aswell as good times with friends, simply enjoying life...


Decided to get more 'classiness' in this zone, with a little more fashionable outfits to show you. Starting to get fed up of casual/simple outfits all this way (bye bye difficult weather and horrible winter :/ ), let's get the girly stuff out before summer holidays !


Taking advantage of the new trend based on pastel colours, here is an outfit in those tones and defintely not the last ! :)

Very very bad bad blogger

Rock the boat !
Pffff... I am so disappointed to have been absent from this corner all this time... Sorry dor the lack of news... I missed you :/ Unfortunately, it was not because I was on holiday... but because I had so many computer issues :'((( Need to get a new one as soon as possible but it's hard to let go of things that have actually a big place in your heart. (Started the blog with that bl**dy machine !!!)
Until I'm able to get back a full use of the baby, I'll leave you with INSTAGRAM pics (only pictures I'm able to post :'( ) Follow me at @thejollygirl
PS : So much things to show you, like what I got in the last 'empty your dressing' session :) SURPRISE coming soon !

Pink Panther

Staying on the pink mode, here are pictures from last year when I still had pink in my hear (miss it sooo much :'( ) AND tanned skin :'(. Outfit was then again very simple with my beloved pair of JENNYFER jeans (miss them so much, but it's not finished, they will be the main subject of another post where I will need your advices !?!) flats and Pink Panther T (let's also call it 'Gus's blanket' ;/ ). Everything to make me miss last summer !

Purple Rain

Since it's raining 24/7 these past days with only a few sunshine appearance, I adapt every outfit to this kind of awful weather (the one I hate the most cause you just don't know what to wear...). Last week, Wednesday's outfit was one of those, wearing 2 overlapped tops to be able to get one off when it's too hot (especially at work !), Ungaro Fever jeans and top, my beloved rain boots (which actually was a sensation at work, people telling me I was still a kid cause I wear wellies, something I totally undertake :D), purple leather jacket and messenger bag.

Chic or Casual ?

Quite the same...

... but not exactly. Sometimes I tend to wear the same outfit without even noticing, even if it could never be completely the same one, due to the mood of the day and different accessorizing. (I guess I wear often certain pieces because they are confortable). Remember this post with khaki as main color, here is another one in total green this time worn last Thursday. My comfy leggings again, my leather cape jacket, always very useful during the day in case it rains and a big bag aswell as my favourite scarf (I wear it nearly every day these past weeks). Maybe green (color of hope !) will bring us back our dear sunny weather... :)
