Month: September 2015


Pictures by Inès Monnet Imagine I was wearing a white t-shirt with blue denim jeans, cognac-colored boots and carrying a beige bag. I doubt this outfit would be making much of a statement. This is why I love black. Black always cuts it even against the rainbow range of colorful pieces. So, for those of… Read More »

Parisian Style in Berlin

Pictures by Alison L. I broke a rule on “How not to look like a tourist”. I not only bought a “Berlin” t-shirt but actually wore it there! Funnily enough, the pictures actually suggested a Parisian style. I wore skinny black jeans, layered the tee with straight-cut blazer, put on my now-inseparable adidas Stan Smith… Read More »

As promised, I share here a picture diary of my stay in Berlin with the Zalando team! It captures the outfits I wore and memorable moments in the city and at the Lollapalooza festival.

A stylish Lollapalooza outing

Pictures by Alison L.  I could call myself a music festival junkie this summer. I went to Montreux Jazz, Paléo in Nyon (Switzerland), LoveBox in London, Pukkelpop in Kiwiet (Belgium), and last week to Lollapalooza in Berlin. For the outdoor events, you need to dress right for the place and weather, like for a day-long… Read More »

The event originated in the US, then rolled out to Latin America, and is held this year for the first time in Europe. Imagine my excitement to… Read More »

Evening Rules in Black & Gold

Pictures by Inès Monnet ©  At night fall, we dress up to kill the dance floor. We put on our beautiful, sexy and slightly revealing attire with the highest heels. We adorn ourselves with jewelries to out-dazzle the disco lights. We wear the most bewitching makeup that will arrest the glance of any man. Seduction… Read More »

I am now ready to reveal the three H&M Beauty looks I worked on. To kick off the series, I went for a colorful trendy look. A colorful makeup is more conspicuous and should therefore get along well (instead of clashing) with your outfit. You can’t go too far wrong by opting for the same… Read More »

Back to School Fashion

Pictures by David F.  Editing by me Fashion seems to go into overdrive in the month of September. Vogue America publishes its bumper issue (which includes some 300 pages of ads alone). It is also the time of the year you bump into kids and teens doing la rentrée “back to school” shopping. The frenetic shopping for… Read More »

New Hair, New Look

Pictures by David F.  Editing by me As if to prepare for the upcoming fashion seasons, I go to my hairdresser Clara in Lausanne twice a year, usually at the end of summer and winter. My long hair is really precious to me and I entrust it only to Clara, She knows what I like,… Read More »
