Fashion

  I wish I had the talent to write. But that is far from the case.  My head is a mishmash of ideas which I fail to organize in nicely written paragraph. Yes, I have a message I want to share but it often gets side-tracked or mixed up with other ideas. As I write this post, I am like “oh but what was the point of this intro” ?  Fortunately I like to have all my articles… Read More »

  I don’t do detox to lose weight.  We know extreme diets do not work. You may lose up to 3 kgs over a 5-day regime but you end up “eating your frustration away” and  put on even more weight.  Nor do I detox for the popularly believed but scientifically unproven benefits on the body. … Read More »

Not Your Date Outfit

“Would it be OK if I wore that look on a date ?” I curiously asked my friend David.  He said “No” politely, explaining that my outfit was neither casual nor chic, neither stylish nor classic.  He was right – it wouldn’t make an impact.  For a change, this post is about what not to wear on a… Read More »

  I was very happy when I received my new La Redoute pencil skirt a few weeks ago. It wasn’t easy to find a good design that was also comfortable with a good fit of the right length.  I decided to wear it to the HEAD show in Geneva as guest of MAC cosmetics. I… Read More »

    ” The way we live now is edging towards a more sustainable pace in which we aime to buy less, but better. “ I can’t agree more with this statement from Navaz Batliwalla’s book “The New Garçonne, How to be a Gentlewoman.” (btw. I just started reading this truly inspiring book).  I am lucky… Read More »

Kick Off 2017 In Style

  I have always enjoyed New Year parties but I cannot recall any one in particular that was exceptional. I don’t expect much of this evening either. However, there is always one thing I look forward to… dressing up! I will not go fancy full-out but take the chance to pick up my glitter pieces… Read More »

  What I enjoy most during Christmas and New Year’s eve is connecting with family and friends in a festive mood.  It also reminds me how grateful I am of the year past.  That includes thanking you for being so faithful in following me!   As a small gesture, here is  my last giveaway of the year that will… Read More »

  I found another solution to actually feel and look good in the cold. It’s the Goldie London shearling jacket from ABOUT YOU online store. The piece is not only warm and comfy but also easy to style. For example, I went for a flower Pyjama top (yes, as a daywear) with no other layers.… Read More »

  Slippers in winter !?  I dare myself to wear my Zyne fringed slip-ons from Rush&Co online store but with 3 layers of tights.  I keep my look minimal with side-slit culotte pants, self-designed shirt, and leather jacket (over which I have a gilet not shown in the picture).  As usual, I give a twist to the outfit… Read More »

Two Christmas Look Ideas

  Velvet black shirt, high heels or flat shoes, pant or glitter skirt, here’s two Christmas look ideas, a casual and an evening outfit, both available at Outlet Aubonne. I choose at the new Claudie Pierlot boutique in Outlet Aubonne a black shirt as a “base” of my outfit. I wanted a simple and polyvalent piece with a material… Read More »
