TODAY’S ALL-BLACK LOOK

ALL-BLACK LOOKI thought I would be writing about cooking and sharing with you my beef Bourguignon recipe in today’s post, but it happens that I somehow erased the pictures and will once more talk fashion by sharing pictures of my personal #lookoftheday.
As you can see, I kept it quite minimalist today by wearing an all-black look consisting of a cashmere little black dress, tights and my favorite ankle boots.
This little dress that I occasionally wear as a tunic over jeans, is one of my favorite items of clothing I do possess. Not only it is made of high quality fabric, it also happens to be the most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn. The 3/4 sleeves are another reason why I’m fond of it. As far as I can remember, I always had a special thing for 3/4 sleeves. Like even right now, my pajamas top sleeves are rolled up so it gives it a 3/4 sleeves look. Don’t know where that comes from!?! Or maybe I do… Anyways!
To finish off the look, I went for a beige and white cardigan with a winter motif to keep me warm.
Besides, I thought it gives the look an effortless, easy feel.

Take care guys!

Xo, 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.

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,

Xo, G.

THROWBACK TO MY WEDDING DAY

TB WEDDING 1It’s been four days since I arrived in Paris and I started to terribly missing my husband today, so I went through our wedding pictures and I selected a few of them to share with you.
I love my wed pictures more than any other photos I have. While our wedding video isn’t that good, even though we hired a professional who worked on music videos, documentaries and had at least 20 years of experience in that field, the photographers were simply amazing and totally worked in harmony with me and respected my vision on how I wanted the pictures to be which is spontaneous and casual.

The first picture is of our fists showing our rings off and seconds after making our first fist bump as a married couple. And actually, that has become something we regularly do when we agree on something. ^^

TB WEDDING 3As the color of the wedding was coral, I got this beautifully and simply made bouquet of fresh roses and nice white pearls glued all over it.

TB WEDDING 4And here comes Cinderella… Yeah, well, the big difference between Cinderella and me, is that I didn’t loose my shoes, I couldn’t even take them off! ^^ See, they are super comfortable for high heels but the thing that went wrong is that my feet were swollen at some point and with so many straps, it is mission impossible to get your feet out! But at the same time I got many compliments on them so I guess that is 50/50.
I bought them at Mass.

TB WEDDING 5But the worst thing that could ever happen to a bride is to get her makeup done by some incompetent b**** who didn’t even went to an artistic makeup school and was working in this reputable beauty salon in Ljubljana where my sister and I went to pamper ourselves and relax a bit. But things went really wrooong! We literally looked like transvestites. When I first laid eyes on my sister I started laughing so hard that I cried and she laughed her ass off too because she knew something wrong was going on. The lines of her face disappeared under tons of cheap foundation which didn’t even respected her skin tone, and when I saw what the b**** has done with her eyes, I was pretty sceptical on letting her do my makeup too but I didn’t have much choice.
Once she finished to put on my foundation, I asked to see myself in a mirror and the result was hilarious. I didn’t even let her do my eyes. My sister and couldn’t even look at each other without crying with laughter. The first thing we did at home was to wash our faces off and apply our makeup ourselves. It is too bad we didn’t take a selfie this day but my sister’s fake face is stuck with me for eternity and it’s the same for her. Ahhh.

Oh yeah, my earrings are from Oliver Weber.

0349I was fooling around at the end of the photo shoot ’cause I was exhausted and needed to cheer myself up to keep going, ’cause it was a crazy day full of good and bad emotions.

My dress is made of silk chiffon as I wanted it to have this airy and ethereal feel and the band lace is embellished with Swarovski crystals to match my earrings. Even though it was custom made, I have lost 4kgs in 2 days and the dress was falling down all day long. I was so sad that it didn’t fit as the day I brought it home. Sniff sniff …
