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

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!

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

Winter Cocktail Ensemble

I am sure many of you fashion fans that read my blog, know about the site ShopStyle.

When I have time to kill (not very often) or when I need to let my brain take a break (meaning I need time to kill but don’t have any), I sometimes go to websites and browse fabulous real-estate, or I go to ShopStyle and browse fashion. It’s a great site where you can “play” stylist and creat your own outfits for any occasion, mood or trend.
