KILLER WINTER DRESSES

New looks are finally up!
The reason I haven’t been posting much lately is simply because I had to find another application to create the looks, and also to collect lots of new clothes, shoes and accessories which is a time – consuming process. Plus don’t forget that I have a toddler, I went back to work for 20h/week and I also started a new blog about motherhood.Voila you know my situation so be nice please. ^^

Lots of kisses, G.

PARIS, PARIS

PARIS OPÉRA GARNIER ACADÉMIE NATIONALE DE MUSIQUEThe last post of the year is dedicated to the place where it all started, Paris of course.
With my partner in crime we went to see the mesmerizing and upside down Christmas Tree at Galeries Lafayette situated near The Palais Garnier known as Opéra that you can see in the first four pictures. I used to work in this neighborhood and I fell in love with it instantly. I may not be a huge fan of the Parisian crowd and lifestyle but I am obsessed with its architecture from the 19th century. I recommend the 9th arrondissement if you too are hooked on typical Parisian buildings and great places to do some shopping.
As I mentioned before, we went there to see the unusual Christmas tree above all as we have already visited this neighborhood many times in the past two years.
From the moment we stepped into the galeries,  I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the magical upside down tree hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the ‘shopping center’, if I could coin it in those terms! But we had to get out of there ’cause the place was so crowded and it was getting hot. So to cool ourselves a bit, we strolled through the streets of Paris and ended on Place André-Malraux nearby Le Musée du Louvre where we enjoyed a wonderful soap bubbles show. You can see in one of the photos how I am in awe of the gigantic bubbles flying over Paris. The next stop was evidently La Pyramide du Louvre and Parc des Tuileries from where you can see La Tour Eiffel pointing the tip of its nose. After taking some pictures of the impressive Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, we moved towards the exit of the Parc des Tuileries and ended up on la Place de la Concorde with its enchanting Ferris Wheel and L’obélisque de Louxor. On the second to last picture you can see les Champs-Élysées, l’Arc de Triomphe Étoile and la Défense (the business district).
The stroll ended there, I mean we stopped taking pictures once we hit the Christmas market at the end of the Champs-Élysées because of cold, the crowd and mainly because it was daylight and lights were still off. So we returned there after 5pm and took some great pics that will soon be published, so stay tuned guys!

By the way, Happy New Year to all of you!

I was wearing : Zara turtleneck, Gap jeans, H&M scarf and a handmade coat from Italy in which I didn’t get unnoticed since apart from some Asian tourists and children, people were mostly wearing dark colors, as usual.

FESTIVE OUTFITS FOR THE CHRISTMAS AND HOLIDAY SEASON – PART 2

ALICE + OLIVIA SEQUIN TOP HAIDER ACKERMANN PANT ADAM LIPPES COAT JIMMY CHOO HEELS AND CLUTCH BIJOUX HEART EARRINGSSo girls, have you find what you’re going to wear tonight? If not, here are five new outfits I have created lately for all of you who are having difficulty finding the right look for tonight’s Christmas Eve party or family dinner.
The first one is made of metallic colors and sequins to respect the holiday theme. As you can see, the orange brick goes perfectly with gold, cream and navy so try it out tonight and lighten the room up.

MAISON MARGIELA SHIRT ALBERTA FERRETTI SKIRT H&M COAT MANOLO BLAHNIK PUMPS DIOR CLUTCH The second look is inspired by a super classic and chic woman and one of my favorite designers, Carolina Herrera. She is one of those who knows how to rock a simple white shirt either by pairing it with pants or skirts and so for the festive season I opted for a satin high-waisted skirt for an extra feminine twist. However, the key piece of this look is definitely this amazing coat from H&M than can be worn as a dress too. I really love it. I went for gold metallic pumps as they seemed the right color to make this outfit even more festive.

LA PERLA BODYSUIT ISA ARFEN PANTS ALTUZARRA FOR TARGET FUR JACKET OSCAR DE LA RENTA CLUTCH MANOLO BLAHNIK HEELSThis is a perfect festive all-black look actually, the best I have created in a while. The lace bodysuit has something to do with it!
Unlike the little black dress, all-black ensembles have never been very appealing to me as I love every piece of my outfit to stand out and be noticeable. In all-black looks it is quite difficult to distinguish what is what and in order to make your outfit more interesting, playing with fabrics and shapes is necessary. Here I used satin, lace and faux fur and the result is really satisfactory.

THAKOON GOWN THE ROW FUR COAT BEN-AMUN EARRINGS AQUAZZURA + OLIVIA PALERMO SHOESAfter black, red, gold, nude, cream, gold and white here comes an all-blue ensemble for women who simply don’t want to play it safe or traditional for this year’s holiday season.
Lucy Mecklenburgh was seen wearing this dress a few days ago.

FRAME DENIM SHIRT EACH X OTHER PANTS DVF FUR COAT OLYMPIA LE-TAN CLUTCH MANOLO BLAHNIK METALLIC PUMPS OSCAR DE LA RENTA NECKLACEThe last look of the day is the most classic and easy to pull off. To dress up a white shirt, pair it with a pair of metallic blue pleated pants and throw a faux-fur navy coat over your shoulders. Opt for gold to accessorize the look by wearing a timeless pair of pumps in metallic gold and go for a minimum of jewelry by picking out a statement necklace.

Merry Christmas guys!

CHILLIN’

BLACK T-SHIRT 1As the weather isn’t top these days, the first pictures from Paris are shot inside my sister’s apartment wearing an all-Gap look while chilling and watching some old episodes of One Tree Hill. You see, since I moved to Slovenia I got used to watching series and movies in original version, and in France everything is synchronized and channels that offer both French and original versions are rare so it’s a bit annoying, thanks God Internet exists! Speaking of series, I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, The Walking Dead, The Bridge, Shameless, Mad Men, Newsroom … and while waiting new seasons to be released, I am watching Suits a quality show that I discovered recently and I recommend it because it is quite entertaining and interesting.

Stay tuned guys as more pictures of beautifully decorated Paris are coming soon.

Good night,

PLAID, LEATHER, KNIT & SUNSHINE

I honestly cannot be happier these days!
After two weeks of depressive weather and poor light, the Sun finally showed up its face yesterday. I woke up with so much energy and positivity. The sunshine has so much positive influence on my mood that as soon as I opened my eyes, I jumped out of bed (which is so unusual for me), started organizing my day, my week, the holidays and the list goes on… That felt good!
After a productive morning, I had a very productive afternoon too! Don’t know if it is the weather or not, but I got a clear and definite ‘yes’ from my husband when I asked him if he’ll go with me for a session of shopping at the mall. The last time we went shopping together was like a year ago, you know how men are…
Anyways, before going to the mall we stopped at this beautiful spot not far from where we live to take a few shots. The view was impressive as usual. Is there anything prettier than a view of sunny snowy mountains ? It is so relaxing and pure and every time I see them, I cannot wait to go snowboarding.
The outfit I picked out for yesterday was super comfy and cozy, exactly what I was looking for since shopping can sometimes be very exhausting. I went for the plaid shirt as it goes perfectly with the actual mood. Tartan patterns always reminded me of Christmas so it was an obvious choice. I usually wear it buttoned up but this time I wanted to play with layers and decided to wear a white t-shirt under it. The faux-leather pants added a rock’n’roll therefore interesting vibe to the whole look so that is why I wore them instead of a pair of jeans. As for the shoes, it didn’t take me long to choose. I will never wear anything else than sneakers for a shopping session, never! Hats off to all those women and girls I saw yesterday strolling through the mall and carrying their shopping bags, their bulky coats and wearing heels! Speaking of bulky coats, I definitely didn’t want to carry around my down coat which tends to annoy me pretty quickly as I have to have my hands free to touch all the fabrics, so this time I turned on my brains while still at home and decided to wear my warm knitted oversized cardigan which once I was hot, put in the shopping bag.

Take care guys!

LOOKS OF THE DAY / 15.11.2014

LOTD 1Love how black, grey, white and cobalt blue work together. It is actually one of my favorite combos both for casual wear as well as when it comes to dress for a more formal occasion. This popular Alexander Wang x H&M dress is the piece that caught my eye the most.  Love the body-kissing shape, the color-blocking and the AW’s all over it. I paired it with a bad-ass biker leather jacket to keep it all in the kick-ass context Alexander Wang created over his sporty and military collection. As the most coveted pair of sneakers nowadays, these simple leather slip-ons were an obvious choice to complete this ultra-modern casual look. The metallic cobalt blue mini pashli shoulder bag brightens it up and instantly gives the look ‘ce petit quelque chose‘! Oversized black sunglasses are not mandatory but strongly suggested. ^^LOTD 2This look is also very inspiring as it mixes several styles which are extremely interesting when worn together. First, there is this eye-catching sweatshirt from H&M’s Denim Conscious collection worn over a leather white mini skirt with a zipper right in the middle. Sporty + Sexy. Second, the double-breasted coat adds some elegance to the two previous pieces. The biker ankle boots give a bit masculine and rebellious twist to the set and the back pack is the ‘childlike‘ piece. I don’t know you, but I really like the result! LOTD 3Dressing for work should be the easier as there is an existing code for workwear. What I mean by that is that either you wear a pant or a skirt and eventually a dress. This time I used pants and simply paired them with a classic and timeless white shirt, a chic blue sweater and a grey coat. The magnificently made flashy orange point shoes are here to brighten it all up and simply because this bright color goes so well with blue. LOTD 4Maleficent-inspired sexy all-black ensemble whose particularity is that it makes every woman looks fierce, from skinny Angelina Jolie to chubby Kim Kardashian, this outfit brings out the sexiness and beauty of every woman wearing it.

Enjoy folks!
