Month: July 2016

  Summer isn’t on its last legs yet, so there is good enough reason to look for new swimsuits.  Trends are for grandma-style high-waisted bikinis, bottom and top joint with straps, and the eternal one piece.  Sexiness of a swimwear is not about how much skin you bare, but about how you hide your assets!  It is… Read More »

  I am surely not the only one who wish to go to work in jog pants.  However, they don’t quite gel with most corporate dress codes.  Perhaps we can prove them wrong.  Dress sense is not only about what you wear but how you wear them.  Here is a minimalist jog pants outfit that may change your… Read More »

  When I started blogging, I shared only original looks or how I dressed-up for special occasions. They weren’t representative of what I would usually wear . I have since moved to showing mostly simpler everyday go-to attire.  Here’s one. Once I tried these Diesel mom jeans, I have been wearing them non-stop ever since.  I love the… Read More »

  I am not sure if this is typical of millennials or just symptomatic of our consumer age – when I like something, I use it intensively for a short period of time. In music, for example, I can replay a song over and over again for an entire week.  Not surprisingly, I tire of it… Read More »

Trabzon Diary

I couldn’t pass up a recent invitation extended by The Tourism Office of Turkey to visit Trabzon in the northeastern part of the country.  We found ourselves on the move in a coach and visiting… Read More »

  Learn from the masters.  I am referring here to master makeup artist Paulo Almedia whom I met at a recent MAC cosmetics event in Zurich.  Paulo participates in fashion shows around the world and has a huge influence on makeup trends. A small group of us (including other makeup artists) were given a lesson of the trends, and… Read More »

How to Wear Stripes

  Stripes create optical effects and are like a double-edged sword.  They can be embellishing or unflattering depending on how you wear them. So what are the dos and don’ts? FR Les rayures donnent un double effet d’optique. Elles peuvent être à la fois flatteuse ou à l’opposé ne pas du tout mettre en valuer… Read More »

  I have talked about Ouchy, the lakeside neighborhood I really like in my hometown Lausanne. The entertaining Quartier du Flon is another favorite. Once an abandoned industrial site, it is now teeming with restaurants, bars, cafés (I have posted about Mango Deck in Blaast Places), a cinema complex and shops. To show you a… Read More »

In a Boho-Mood

    Lately I enjoy wearing boho items like the Minelli suede clutch and low lace-up heels from their bohemian collection.  I match the color with a striped poncho I got last year at Esprit and usually mix in a minimalistic piece like this H&M silk dress.  As for the jewelries, I wear each day a piece from… Read More »
