Foreword

Hello my friends,

At this very particular time in our history, I hope this post finds you well.

I held out from posting since my trip to Paris Fashion Week in February this year due to the world health crisis. I couldn’t see myself posting fashion at a time when there is so much difficulty healthwise and economically.

After three weeks that the world is in quarantine, I still feel the same. At the same time, I, like a lot of small businesses in the fashion industry must go one working to survive. There are a lot of artisans, seamstresses, and textile workers that depend on their jobs to feed their families. Therefore fashion is never superficial. It is necessary.

We all have to get dressed every day, why not enjoy it! 

That brings me to this amazing jacket I am wearing pictured in the images above and the fact that it brings a warm comfort and a smile to my face.

All items are from Coster Copenhagen. Clean lines, bold colors, prints and fine details all exemplify Scandinavian heritage. They even offer on their online shop some sustainable choices. Worth a visit.

I find this beautiful pink jacket with its embroidered birds so versatile that I styled it in two different ways. Firstly belted as a coat dress. The look is feminine and definitely not shy for workwear. Then I chose to wear it with a neckline embroidered short-sleeved tee that states that I am Sun Obsessed and pink tan trousers for a relaxed look. The wide-legged trousers called for some platform sandals to balance an elongate the silhouette. I hope you love the look as much as I do and that it also brings a smile to your face. Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment.

When in Paris…

Dress up or go home!

Planning my second trip to Paris Fashion Week at Oxford Fashion Studio was quite amusing. I, with my fashion partner in crime @bella_zofia,  planned our looks and decided to focus on a new Swiss-based designer @matereza_design. The haute couture dresses all made by hand and meticulously finished with fine details are not for the light-hearted. These dresses are made with a confident woman in mind. One that is not afraid to be in the spotlight at the same time always being “in a chic state of mind”. Perfect!

I and Izabela were delighted!

The choice was difficult because we loved all the audacious cocktail dress designs but the dilemma was which ones to wear that we may easily create a look for daytime. I chose a beautiful green velvet dress with a tulip hem and a cold shoulder surrounded by black feathers. I decided to style it with a sleeveless white buttoned-up dress shirt. The mix brought my dress to be easily worn in the daytime. Not to mention that it is still winter and we had the most stormy weather in Paris. The sky seemed to have opened up just for our photoshoot session with a professional photographer @ulritzy. The bag to compliment my dress was a one of a kind luxury handbag from a Swiss-based designer @alila_brand. Sumptuous.

I chose a casually tousled hairdo to play down my very haute couture dress. My hair, that barely survived the inclement weather, and nails were done @luciano_coiffeur_geneva

Izabela’s dress was more straight forward to style! It was a beautiful silk wrap dress with feathers that followed the closing. It was amazing. An elegant stand on its own piece that she wore beautifully!

I thank you for reading 😉

 

 

STREET STYLE

My friends,

Never sacrifice style when it’s the weekend!

This is another look from my style my wardrobe challenge. Neutrals for a sophisticated street style look. I layered a long camel coat over a plush hoody, ivory slightly destroyed cropped jeans and neutral statement sneakers with a shot of red. A designer bag always help to finish the look 😉

How do you like this look?

GO BIG OR GO HOME!

Hi everyone,

I hope you started the year well!

This was my recent trip to Vienna, Austria. I call it the enchanted city because of all the lights, majestic architecture and cultural life like the opera!

An occasion like an opera is a great excuse to dress up! Therefore let’s take it to the max with a maxi-dress!

Here I am wearing my trusted suede perfecto jacket (considered a staple in any fashionista wardrobe) a sleeveless puffy multilayered organza dress with a halter neck top and ankle booties. A faux-leather and faux-fur mini bag complete the outfit. What do you think about my outfit for the opera? #shopyourwardrobe #sustainablefashion #style #stylist #image consultant #genevabased

This first post I offer you as my #oneyearchallenge to style my wardrobe as recently mentioned. Therefore I will not mention the brands of the clothing I am wearing since they are not recent purchases. If you would like to find something similar to what I am wearing, please leave a comment and I will help as best I can.

I thank you for reading.

A ONE YEAR CHALLENGE!

Dear Friends,

In this new year of many making resolutions, I am sharing one with you. Usually I am not one to make resolutions because I believe that we don’t have to wait for a new year to take measures to better ourselves. We may do this at any time. This particular improvement I am making has to do with my wardrobe. What better than the beginning of the year to give myself a one year challenge to style everything I already own and only everything I already own!

Because the most #sustainablefashion is already the clothes we own! #fashionrevolution 💚

I have for the past three years curated my wardrobe with key pieces, staples and some trends. (not necessarily high-end) I also believe that #truestyle doesn’t depend on how fat your wallet is (that is story for another post).

Therefore you will no longer see tags to the makers of the items I am wearing (I will make an exception for a few collaborations & partnerships. I do enjoy working with brands and photographers).

I am not trying to sell you anything. I hope that in my “CHIC STATE OF MIND” I am inspiring women to take care of themselves.

This is my mission as an #imageconsultant & #stylist.

Moreover this decision is directly linked to my more sustainable approach to my wardrobe.
