Transitions

Pictures by Marine M. We can feel the onset of Fall with days and evenings getting gently colder. To resist the morning chill, I wore a long sleeve top paired with an asymmetrical skirt. I spotted those Zara sandals some time ago while window-shopping in town. I went for a minimalist look with basic colors… Read More »

It was 30°C on that bright sunny afternoon, yet I wore a shirt and boots. Perhaps it was because I… Read More »

Roses by Roger & Gallet

Last but not Least

For our last dinner at La Table in Hotel Ermitage, I wore an evening dress from Lovers and Friends (kindly loaned to me by Omnitrade Fashion Showroom).
