Oldies but Goodies !

robe createur xuly bet made in france

Every season, we all want new stuff (shoes, clothes, jewels, etc…) that we really need. But in our dressing, they are some we don’t want to get rid of. This is my case: no more fashionable ? So what ! First of all there is a good chance that they will be fashionable again one day;  on the other hand, we love them so it’s enough to keep them, and it’s precisely that which makes our oufits original: THE good mix! That’s why I wanted to talk about “oldies” today: those so-called old clothes that actually aren’t. Continue Reading…

Here is the last Saint James sweater I bought to my man: a sailor sweater, a real one. I spotted this sweater while I was attending the MIF: a fair dedicated to French Manufacturing in Paris.

Leopard skirt and couture stockings: wow, now you think I changed my habits. No, let me reassure you for those who already follow me and sorry for the others who would have clicked compulsively: I wear a leopard print skirt, but it’s a midi length (hi hi !)

french cocotte jupe plissee midi made in france

What if we started the year with a look ? Well, obviously an indoor look, because it’s freeeeezing outside. I’m sure you don’t know how life is hard for fashion bloggers who have to shoot their outfits when it’s -2°C outside and when they have to drop off the coat because otherwise you won’t see anything.  Risky business believe me. And I have to say that my nose becomes red outside in winter, so indoor is far much better. Apart from this, I wanted to show you the lovely Incandescente pleated skirt which is part of the Midnight Collection you can find on French Cocotte e-shop. Continue Reading…
