feathered*


When I saw THIS feather headdress the other day, i instantly fell in love with it. 
See, I really love putting accessories in my hair, headbands, hair clips, necklaces and other flowers...
I believe we should wear crowns everyday...
What do you guys think?

like a (punk) princess*





I am guessing that a lot of girls are like me and used to wanna be a princess when they were little... Seriously, I still, today, wish I could have the occasion to where a couture gown! 
Last week end, was the annual Met Ball in NYC and this year theme was Punk! 
Pretty fun! Those are some of my favorite looks. I have to say that I totally adore Sienna Miller's look, especially her 'punk-crown' (can I call it that?) and amazing jacket! 

What do you guys think? 


 Sienna Miller is in Burberry - Rooney Mara is Givenchy Couture - Carey Mulligan is Balenciaga 
And my illustration is Kate Mara in Delpozo

sun please!*


my first purse*




My mum recently gave me my first purse. I had it when I was 2-3 years old in north Africa. It is made a real leather and I have to say that I still (25years later) really like it! 
It can only contain my cellphone and ONE key and credit card though, which is hard since I always carry ten thousand things with me all the time... 

Have a happy day everyone!

the hair story...





A couple of months ago, I had this crazy idea of cutting my hair of different length on each side, I like asymmetrical things in general (like wearing mismatch socks, weirdooo, I know) and i was really tired of having always pretty much the same haircut since high school....
Today, I still like it, I kinda miss my long hair though.

Also what do you think of this amazing Carven necklace?!  I really want it! Their collection is really amazing!
Have a great day everyone!

Il y a environ deux mois, j'ai décidé de me faire couper les cheveux de longueurs différentes de chaque coté. Je suis assez fan de l'asymétrique en général (par exemple je porte souvent des chaussettes différente..Je sais, bizarre..) Ce mini coup de folie est arrivé après avoir regardé de vieilles photos qui m'ont fait réaliser que j'avais plus ou moins la même coupe de cheveux depuis le lycée... 
Je pensais m'en lasser vite mais pour l'instant j'en suis toujours contente.

Sinon, avez vous vu ce superbe collier Caven?! Je rêve de l'avoir, j'adore vraiment leur collection! 
Bonne soirée à tous!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great sunny week end! 
I am really loving this spring weather lately in Paris, I keep my windows open pretty much all day long. 
This is what I wish I was wearing today. I love mixing casual and more dressed up items... What do you think? I really love those Fendi shoes! 



playoffs*







When I saw those nike x liberty last november, I told the salesman I had to buy them because, One I LOVE liberty fabric, Two I really wanted some Nike skyhigh, Three (and for most) They were purple and yellow (gold) and they were reminding me of the Lakers.

While growing up, I liked Basketball (because it was sooo American) but honestly,  I wasn't tooooo much into it. Then, I moved to LA and a (dear) friend invited me a game and it totally changed my perspective. Of course when you live in LA you kinda have to like the Lakers, they are like rock stars over there.. (Plus during the three years I was there they went into the finals and won twice, so it is always cool to see your city team win) 
But, the reason why I, now, like to watch basketball is that (I think) it is so artistic in some ways...Call me crazy, but the way they jump is just supernatural !!! just beautiful, I love it ! 
so GO Lakers! you guys can do it! 
(I know they lost their first game but it's ok they can catch up!) 

going to bed now...good night everyone!

DIY (well sort of) *






I came across a picture of vintage tea cups with seasoning herbs planted in them the other day on the internet. 
With Spring finally starting here in France, It made me wanna do it. 
Don't you think it is a cute idea to use tea cups that way?  

Have a lovely week end everyone!

I finally went to see this exhibit last week, (it was ending on Sunday) at La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris. 
It was probably one of the most inspiring exhibit I had seen in a while. So many very cool textiles!

PFW*


Today I made a "I wish I wore" dedicated to two shows going on today on Paris Fashion Week. Tsumori Chisato and Acne Studio. I though it would be fun to mix the poesy and quirkiness of T. Chisato to the more clean and edgy Acne style. 

What do you guys think? 

Sunglasses, Coat and dress (worn here as a top) : Tsumori Chisato 
Clutch, Skirt and Boots : Acne 

(of course, I would add some tights and a cardigan because it is so super cold here...)

hello fashion week*




As a textile designer, I have to admit that I admire Mary Katrantzou for her amazing prints each season..This is why, I decided to draw three of my favorite silhouettes of the AW14 collection.

Hope you like it!

the girl who dreamed too much*




I randomly found this Phillip Lim Jacket online yesterday and I totally fell in love with the cut. 
It made me wonder what I would wear with it if I could afford it...
Those past days have been so sunny here in Paris, it totally feels like springs and makes me in a good mood... I also love this unicorn case, too bad it only exists for iphone (as always...) I have a samsung and i wouldn't change for any other phone...

*frozen


This week end has been so cold and snowy here in Paris that it made me wonder if i needed moonboots or not... 
(from here)





*Next Fall

We are still in the middle of winter season (there are about 3" of snow in Paris today!!) and we are already looking at the next winter collections! 
Those are some of the trends I though were interesting overall. 
A lot of rounded edges and cuts, still a lot of knots around the waist and some padded tops. 
Textile wise we continue with what we saw for the summer with the black and white geometrical graphics.

*andotherstories







I guess most of you have heard about the new brand H&M is launching next spring in 10 cities (Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Milan, Paris and Stockholm) + an estore. It is called "And other stories" and will apparently mostly be accessories and beauty products. 
I really love the "mood" videos they made so far! 


They also have a pretty cool tumblr page http://and-other-stories.tumblr.com/

Have a nice day!

* what's up fall?


Funny how i keep seeing girls wearing their coat on their shoulders like if they were cloaks... 
It looks really cool but my question is: HOW DO THEY DO THAT? 
Maybe i'm just too clumsy because on me it just doesn't stay in place and just keep falling when I do that...Not super practical...arggg...

I remember seeing a lot of cool kids wearing their pants rolled up so the contrasted socks would just "peekaboo" when I went to NYC last springs..Totally loved it right away! & now i keep seeing people doing it in Paris..Funny how trends just travel =) 

I hope you are having a lovely week end!

* pumpkin latte anyone?




Funny how I never knew what to be for Halloween while I was living in the US... Unlike my friend Catherine who always has the most clever ideas for it !
But now, that I am back in France, where we do not really celebrate that holiday, I kinda miss it!

* * * * *












Otherwise, how cute are those H&M x Unicef Costume - Hats?!?!! 
I also love the video they made!
Really Cool & Poetic!

* Fashion from a Far Away Land





Sorry I had a crazy week, therefor I didn't really have time to post anything...
However I took a moment to look at the Spring 2013 Ready to wear runways of NYC.
Those are the 6 silhouettes I preferred with a special crush on the Proenza Schouler photoprint dresses that are totally amazing!

* Cut and sew



This week, I wanted to get back to the hand made kind of silhouette... I didn't do this

* Adidas VS Nike



 I can't choose between those two...So, what do you guys prefer Nike or Adidas? Adidas or Nike?

* shoes up!

*reference de Suit Up in HIMYM ;)

Those are some pictures I took of myself while waiting for the Train or the Bus in the morning... I think the one I wore the most this summer are those off white wedge sneakers. They are so comfy, i could walk all day long with it...(better than the black one I had last winter..)
What about you, are you more into flats, heels, sneakers?

Summer is over and even though it means that soon days are gonna get shorter and it's going to be colder and rainy it ALSO means that new collections are coming out in stores! yay! 
I am totally obsessed with Lauren Moffatt's new winter collection... I think I could buy any piece of it!

* Monoprix X Antik Batik

15 days comes out the Capsule Collection of Antik Batik for Monoprix! I am so excited about it and even though I told myself I wouldn't buy any clothes next month I might make an exception...
I have the feeling that this winter is gonna be warm and comfy...

Français, Françaises, êtes vous prêts pour le débarquement de la collection capsule d'Antik Batik pour Monop'? Il vous reste 15 jours pour vous décider si vous allez succomber ou non...En ce qui me concerne, je crois que mon choix est fait...

* What's up your sleeve?

Last Christmas, I got the luck to have an ipad. Since then, I have been trying to find the perfect sleeve for it... But, it's not easy when you know exactly what you want. 
This is some of the sleeves I have selected so far.
 The winner might be one of the Kate Spade one...
What do you guys think?

I am so fond of this photo.

* love at first sight

Last night, i was watching the latest episode of project runway, when i saw Alice Temperley in  this dress. I totally fell in love with it right away... Isn't this dress so romantic and dramatic at the same time?
The problem is the price of it... If you have $3290 to spare you can contact me, i 'll know what to do with it ;)

* are you a galaxy or more a firework kinda girl?

Those past few months, I have been wanting a Galaxy-kind-of-print dress but I think that it's when i saw this DIY amazing tutorial that it made me totally need one!
I might try it very soon.. (My close friends know how much i love to play with bleach & tie & dye)



But then, i did some fireworks pictures with my new phone during this summer that made me want to create a fireworks printed top...

So what do you think? Are you more a Galaxy or a Firework person?
