Hairstyle: Long, but Short

Beside using this hair conditioner by Kiehl’s -that really provides an amazing texture, I can’t resist to the nonchalant hairstyles seen at Nina Ricci and Paul & Joe for the Fall-Winter season.

It looks like a short bob, but it’s actually a long hair under the turtle neck. Effortless, but elegant. Love this.

Ride on Accessories: the Bike

Getting a car for my 18th birthday, then 20th… has never been a topic: I had a wonderful apartment in France at this time and I already enjoyed riding a bike in the daily life. And even now -with almost 30 years old- having a car is still not on my plan. I still need my bike!

So this year I decided to renew some details. Leather grips, saddle in camel color are the best investment I could do on it- now it looks (almost) new. And I keep thinking that a great bike belongs to the range of accessories, it says a lot about your style. Ps: I sprayed the satchel in a black color, it helps as well.

Mode-Brunch on Sunday

I don’t know how you guys are dealing with SUNDAYS generally speaking. For my part, it’s the day of the week I don’t particularly enjoy. Can’t say I hate it, obviously we all need time to rest, but I often wished I could do something really special on Sunday. Not only having brunch, not only meeting friends.

Until we decided to organize a fashion brunch at home with some friends. That’s what we did last Sunday, and it’s been a real nice experience I would recommend to everyone.

The idea: a group of 2-3 persons invites each 2 or 3 contacts. Make sure that they have a similar taste and size, I know it’s not always easy. Otherwise you can organize a shoe & accessory brunch! So beyond the fact that you’re enjoying precious time with friends with cool foods & drinks, the benefits are diverse:

1. It’s obviously an ‘eco-conscious’ process.
By this occasion you’ll clean your closet, give some stuffs you don’t wear anymore and get ‘new’ ones. Make sure that the stuffs are undamaged, and don’t give something you won’t get -please let this parka you wore in 1996 at home : )

2. You might discover a new way to combine something you actually wanted to exchange, OR/ AND simply give each others styling tips.

3. It brings relationships to a new level. You’ll laugh a lot, believe me. Stuffs are a strong connexion to people, I’d never though that my Sandro jeans would make me laugh to such a high point > thanks to Luana, her new ‘dating’ pants looks amazing on her!

Meet new people, share something with them, it’s finally the best plan on a Sunday afternoon!




What comes out from my closet:

A striped cropped pullover by Zara, Sandro red pants (with zips along the legs!), Sonia Rykiel scarf.

And what comes in:

Leather brown cuff, velvet oversized vintage top, Sandro white dress and cognac leather skirt. Can’t wait to wear them for fall, and already wish ‘viel Spass‘ with my past-beloved items…
