Pictures by Inès Monnet When wearing shorts and tops gets boring, I slip into a dress. The feminine dress is a must-have piece in every girl‘s wardrobe. I actually own many designs: maxi, mid-length, printed, colorful or black. Each model fits a different occasion. For example, for a ball, I prefer a long elegant bustier… Read More »

Jumpsuit for the Evening

Pictures by Inès Monnet In my previous post about my 3-day stay in Stanglwirt, I mentioned that the marketing manager Maria invited us to a gourmet dinner on the first evening. Although we are meant to relax here (ie. dress casually), I went for a classy look. I wore La Redoute x Sézanne jumpsuit, a… Read More »
