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 »

  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 »

  I was so eager to wear this flashy pink Adidas bomber but just didn’t know how to style it.  But I know the piece would not work well other extravagant pieces.  So I simply put on a Lee tee, a pair of DIY H&M denim, Aldo boots and Diesel bag – all in black.  With this outfit,… Read More »

Style is more about being yourself. – Oscar De La Renta Editorials or designers’ campaign aim to highlight the creativity of a new fashion, often by exaggerating some aspects of the design. They are not meant to be worn as shown or even to look beautiful,… Read More »

Little Treasures For Every Day

  My girlfriends and I were talking about how we would wear jewelry everyday but hardly ever put on really nice “serious” pieces.  By this, we meant the ones with noble materials such as gold and diamonds. It may be because of their prices, or more likely because they may appear too opulent (and make us look like… Read More »

Winter trend : Layer Up !

  Now is the time to layer up – to stay warm or to look cool.  This is how to layer up like a pro. Layering is a game of endless combinations to achieve a casualness that is actually studied.  Simply putting one clothe over another can easily go wrong and end up with you… Read More »

    Baume & Mercier Petite Promesse is a feminine mini-format watch with diamond-set bezel and a double wrap-around bracelet in metal or colorful leather.  The design is both striking and passe-partout, and I wear like a jewelry to dress my wrist.  You can pick a color to reflect your mood – like the standout blue calf-skin I have here… Read More »
