  I shot this OOTD look at an offbeat location. It is the rooftop of People’s Park Complex, an iconic 60’s-style building in the heart of Chinatown. To access the rooftop, you take the elevator at entrance of the shopping mall to the 6th floor and then climb the stairs. As backdrop, you have either… 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 »

Dress-Up To Have Fun

  This dress would do nicely at a chic cocktail or gala event.  If we like an outfit, why not find other occasions to go out with it!  The initial thoughts often are: “This dress is too elegant for daywear” or “I can’t go downtown with this dazzling necklace“.

I believe in being able to turn “old” clothes… Read More »

Outfit pictures by Sabrina D.  One cannot possibly stay in Barcelona without visiting the Park Güell. We got up early on our last day in Barcelona so as not to miss it. It turned out to be my favorite tourist spot of the whole trip. Originally conceived by Güell and Gaudi as a modernist “garden… Read More »

Free and Easy Sunday

That Special Detail

Pictures by Inès Monnet I am ironically not an avid online shopper but still like the good old touchy-feely way of shopping. So what a pleasant surprise at the downtown H&M to stumble on a couple of items I have been searching obsessively – an off-shoulder top and a buttoned-up A-line skirt. These designs were… Read More »

Cerjo for the Sun

Pictures by Inès Monnet I recently discovered Cerjo, a Swiss brand offering a wide range of eyewear. Believe me, they have something for every taste that it is so tempting to get several pairs. Lately, I am hooked on round sunglasses, and so fell for this light and comfortable model. It goes right into the… Read More »

Sneakers Power

Pictures by Inès Monnet Laure Pachoud invited me last Wednesday to play stylist at their pop-up store in Lausanne (more about this experience in a separate post). For this guest appearance, I kitted myself with a mix of styles – retro seventies, chic notes and sporty vibes. The outfit consisted of La Halle fringed suede… Read More »
