Escaping the grey…

Lazy Sundays spent browsing the web can sometimes bring about a wishlist or two for something fun, trendy and full of distraction from dull winter weather. Here is what I’ve picked out to brush aside the rainy day blues. Continue reading

Dressing Like Dita

I have a lovely habit of wasting time on one of my favorite websites : ShopStyle. It’s like having the world as a closet and being able to create outfits form millions and millions of articles. It’s addicting. I am warning you now.

I am also a big fan of Dita. You know who I am talking about. She inspires me and well frankly, I wish I had her waredrobe and work-out regime!

I created some looks from pictures of Dita Von Teese found off of Google. It was time-consuming but fun to browse thousands of pieces of clothing and accessories, looking for that one perfect piece to illustrate her outfits.

New Year’s Style & Shine Look

ShopStyleNewYears

Some fun ideas for a super chic and shiny New Year’s Eve party style, if I had oodles of cash to spend on a swanky outfit!

I did toss in one of my favorite cosmetic/perfume artists : Serge Lutens. The “à la nuit” eau de parfum hinting to the incredible Moon Drop pearl and diamond earrings by Renee Lewis. And then a little edginess mixed in with the snakeskin Kotur clutch and the Roberto Cavalli crystal snake ring. And well, every girl needs a little sparkle head-to-toe at an end-of-the-year party, so I threw in some sparkly soled Le Silla peep-toes, a simple yet beautiful single pearl and white gold bangle by Melanie Georgacopoulos and a pearl shine Diorific nail lacquer.  And of course….the dress! A Kaufman Franco asymmetrical draped stunner all made of sequins.

Now if this outfit doesn’t make you glow, I don’t know what will!

I will not however be wearing anything nearly as fabulous as this gorgeous ensemble. Chéri and I were planning on joining my in-laws at a country home of a good family friend, but as Chéri has been sick for 3 days and if he doesn’t feel better tomorrow, we may just stay in Paris and hang out together at home in our PJ’s and sip home made hot chocolate (spiked with rum of course). And that is just fine with me too!

Vintage Nostalgia fashion ensemble

This look was designed after the walpaper design that is shown on the upper left hand corner of the ensemble image. A little paisley vintage pattern that put me in the mood for some fashion!

The Embrase is for a curtain, but perhaps could be used as a hair accessory
