Red + Green =

Red and green, why not? It’s a bit bold but I tried to keep it clean and simple with simple and straight cuts, as well as not too many details, and of course with black color that tunes it down. Red is sexy but can become vulgar or tacky. Keeping it elegant and vivacious is the hard part. Hope you will enjoy it!

Sexy blue…

This is an outfit for work darlings. I wanted it fun, meaning not too severe but still professional. If you can look elegant and sexy on top of that why not? As long as you don’t show too much skin… I have a hard time putting away my blue Goyard bag lately, probably because it feels like spring is coming!

“La petite robe noire”

“The little black dress”. Do you know who was the first to “invent” the concept? Wearing a simple little black dress was revolutionary when Gabrielle Chanel (or Coco Chanel if you prefer) started the trend. Now who doesn’t own a simple little black dress? Pretty much everyone. That is because it is so simple, basic even, and if nicely cut, very classy. You can match it with a bright color for example (I’m a fan of this red/orange scarf) and pair it with a cool neckalce or big piece of jewelry (because you can with the simpleness of the dress). Hope you like it!

Jeans again…

Did you ever wonder what you would wear on a regular relaxed day if jeans didn’t exist? Frankly, I don’t know! As a jeans lover I can not imagine my life without it. I own more than 10 pair of jeans (not talking about the jackets here…lol) of differents colors, cuts, style… Life would be boring otherwise. The pair I’m wearing now I found in a thrift store in LA. They are Abercrombie & Fitch for 8 dollars. I love this brand for jeans because they make the pockets just right… Meaning your butt looks really good. Don’t fool yourself here, the back pockets are crucial for jeans… They can make your butt either look sexy, or disgusting and bigger than what they are. Also, one thing I want to add in this session is the fact that I restricted my self to 5 colors exceptionally: blue of the jeans, navy blue, beige and brown (the hue is close so it works), and white. White looks dignified and classy with navy blue and beige. I love the match! Enjoy!

A little promenade

Here I come again with my sailor shirt. It was the perfect thing to wear for a nice little walk, in a cute neighborhood, on a Sunday afternoon! I still wore I blazer which is more dressy but that’s just because I like to mix casual (like these ripped jeans from Abercrombie and Fitch) and chic. I am wearing a thicker belt here because the sweater is a little too long otherwise. I would have not put the belt if I had worn leggings for example. Let’s talk about the jeans now. Ripped, but not only… I folded the bottom in a way so that they rest right above my ankles. I believe this rule should be applied for any “boyfriend” type of jeans just because after studying the question, I came up with this distance as looking the best for pretty much anyone… lol.

My lovely trenchcoat!

A trenchcoat! Who doesn’t own a trenchcoat? It is a classical piece of clothing, a must-have all year long. When the cut is right, the fabric lean, and the color flattering, a trench can really make an outfit outstand with elegance. However be careful that it doesn’t go under your knees when you wear it… it will make you look shorter that what you are. I also make it a point to pick one that has cool buttons. They show a pattern, a structure, they are almost like a garnment so they need attention. Choose the buttons with a cool texture or color, and not oversized neither too small. I’ve owned a couple trenchecoats since I was 15 and I’ve always chosen them either grey or beige. Black is a good pick too, a safe choice.

My light grey cardigan

This is a cool sleeveless cardigan, the kind that will turn a chic piece into a casual outfit. Casual chic is definitely what I prefer… the high waisted pants (they are not leather by the way) plus the silk blouse give off an elegant attitude. And as you probably noticed, I am a big fan of navy blue matching with black and a lighter but still neutral tint like grey. The contrast falls also in the chic “department” always. Furthermore my legs look really and that is to thank the same color and kind of texture running from my legs to the point of my toes : black pants + black high heeled shoes! And please notice again the 4 color code is still applying here : black, navy blue, light grey and… a little blue scarf!
