Less is more

French fashionista's effortless exude that je-ne-sais-quoi style. The typical Parisienne is best defined in Ines de la Fréssange's 'Parisian Chic ; A Style Guide.
This original French style is all about being sensual and not to try too hard. Low key make up, don't look at me sense of style and a splash of a bedraggled look.
A monotone look is perfect for is this style : a tuxedo jacket, a nude cashmere jumper and a silk blouse (worn as a t shirt) are basic must haves .
Décolletage is good for any body shape, draws attention and makes you look slimmer.
Skinny black pants or a classic jean are perfect basic trousers : a pencil skirt has the same effect.

We all love Anna !

Did you get the chance to see the window displays at H&M these days ?
We are enduring wind and rain like Fall wants to make a statement like never before. And then you pass an H&M store and see all these Summery bright Turkish blue and golden accessories and you get that instant feel of Summer (back) again.
My personal favourite was the mini clutch with Anna's dog on top. Was lucky to find one left at my local store. It's so cute. Also have to admit it's my very 1st to buy something from any collaborated collection Hennes did.
So, well done Anna ! Love your personality and edgyness : you can tell she works for Vogue Japan cause there's always something kawaii in her way of dressing too.

Meanwhile, enjoy your shopping trip into town today (love Saturdays) and try to pick up your own ADR item if you can.

the lady herself !

Tea my dear ?

I'm instantly attracted to anything mint. Not the flavour but the colour. When I went into the city last week to buy some chocolates, I saw this beautiful tea box filled with black Earl Grey Min Sin tea. Couldn't resist taking one home. Chances this would taste horrid were very unlikely. Actually it tastes really fine. And the box can serve for some other stuff like homemade cookies once all tea has been used up.
You can buy them now (limited) in every Neuhaus shop or online.

Peter Pan collar

Always have been a big PP collar fan ; I can't explain how thrilled I am fashion is going to the max with this demure style. Adjustable or attached ; I just love all of them. Even collars layered on top of each other can make an unique fashion statement. My personal faves are the ones available at H&MSandro and Zara

DIY hair

Been waiting for this ! DIY ombré for your hair. Available in stores in September. Can't wait. Now all I need to do is to grow mine a bit longer ..

Another great and easy to use DIY color set is available at Urban Outfitters. My daughter India tried it on yesterday and it's very simple to use. She just added a small amount on the tips of her blonde locks ; instant rock chic !

Fashion NO-NO becomes a YES ! Definitely !

Leggings have been a 'no-can-do' item on every fashionista's checklist. Even the skinniest amongst us have been tagged with 'not a good look' while sporting them. Even pimped up with the latest arm-candy and killer shoes, every single juror in Grazia magazine or Instyle killed this 'style' off. But what do I notice lately ? Leggings keep popping up on Lookbook and street style blogs. Not just the average pair of black leggings ; beautiful printed designs make these once hated fashion no-no's a must have on every girl's wishlist !
Starry nights or swans embellished, front & back, make a simple outfit like a big chunky sweater fabulous !
