Trendiness Old-fashioned

Pictures by Inès Monnet One perk of a blogger is to be regularly spoilt with new goodies. At the same time, I keep buying items I like. As you can imagine, I do own quite a big closet! The other day, I felt the urge to go through and reorganize my wardrobe. It took me… Read More »

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 »

Pictures by Inès Monnet On the days when I feel a little lost on how to dress, I fall back on my fail-safe mode – go for basics. While colors can “betray” you, black and white never do. On this sunny day, I slipped into a white maxi skirt and black cami top. I put on… Read More »

Even if you manage to stay upright, your shoes usually end up damaged. Anyhow, why bother. Lausanne is a university town – it is perfectly… Read More »

Shades of Gray

Pictures by David F.  Most clothes are better shown in color but black and white photos do add character to the subject and composition.
