Girl Crush: Ludivine Poiblanc

Girl Crush: Ludivine Poiblanc

Ludivine Poiblanc3It’s no coincidence that I’m making a post about one of my ultimate girl crushes, Ludivine Poiblanc, a day after Nowness released the Philophiles video (Phoebe fangirls, in other words) and even though she’s not in it, Ludivine is most probably the biggest, most famous Philophile in the world. Previous fashion editor at Vogue Paris, current freelance stylist and editor at large at Interview magazine; Ludivine celebrates the clean Céline style with her subdued Parisian grace wherever she goes. I can’t think of a better style inspiration for this fall.

Last Halloween contributed to my wardrobe with a pair of American Apparel disco pants which I fooled myself into buying as a wardrobe staple that I’d eventually keep on wearing, didn’t work out. Not because the pants are ugly or uncomforable or anything, it’s just not a suitable style for me (big ass + shiny pants = not a good equation). This year’s obligatory costume purchase was this dress (see how I subtly choose costumes that force me to buy clothing instead of, well, costumes) and as of day 1 I’m already ahead of last year in terms of purchase justification.

Off The Shoulder, On Your Finger

Off The Shoulder, On Your Finger

Saja Wedding 2015 Bridal CollectionSaja Bridal 2015

The first ever wedding dress of which I saved the picture on my desktop for “future reference” was an off the shoulder Alberta Ferretti gown. Before that I had no interest in anything bridal related and I even thought I hated all wedding gowns but that gem pulled me into this multi billion industry of single day parties. Now, more than 10 years later, off the shoulder gowns are making a dramatic comeback in so many shapes, so many fabrics, so many styles but all oh so very beautiful.

From bohemian to glamourous, contemporary to minimal, theatrical to austere – I personally paired the most beautiful off the shoulder wedding gowns with exquisite engagement and wedding rings from leading fine jewelry manufacturer Anjolee. Be a dreamy bride in 2015 with THE wedding dress and the perfect jewelry to go with it: let it be a ring or another stunner like this Diamond Tennis Bracelet. Wedding Wednesdays in full flow!

Platinum Challenge

Platinum Challenge

The Fashion Medley | Platinum ChallengeOk first of all I know that the hair above is beyond platinum but it was so freakin beautiful that I had to put it here. Second of all, I’ve never wanted to do anything with my hair more than I want to dye it platinum blonde right now. I hardly believe that it would work on me; a wheat skinned girl with black brows, high cheekbones and a big nose, most probably I’d look just as bad as I did last Halloween with the “Sandy” wig. But I still want to give it a try, so so bad. Two things holding me back: 1) the effort and money that will go into dyeing it every 2 weeks (I’m extremely lazy when it comes to hair) 2) my non-dyed silky hair will be ruined forever.

Have you tried it? Do you have any comments or recommendations? Should I give it a go?

You Go Girlfriend

For the sake of owning every type of jean in at least one pair (I already had skinny low waist, skinny high waist, mom, boyfriend, ripped and flare in various colors) I bought this pair of “girlfriend” jeans almost half a year ago. It was the only one missing from the collection and I thought I should have it, just like everything else I don’t already own (I’m like a case study for shopaholics anonymus). I must admit it’s not a great choice for women with large thighs and skinny ankles, moreover they are impossible to pair with flats if you are fairly short but you put on pumps and: Mission Accomplished.

Picture Perfect Halloween

Picture Perfect Halloween

Picture Perfect Halloween / Hauntingly Beautiful Halloween Decoration Ideas This year, for the first time ever in my life, I’m going to host a Halloween party at my home. My love affair with Halloween hasn’t always gone well, to be honest. I’ve only been to two parties before and both of them were, well, not what I had hoped. First time was in Milan and me and my friends were the only ones who dressed up (I’m guessing Italians don’t want to give up their sartorial vibes even for Halloween parties, besides they already have their own costume parties so I think they don’t want to give in to American traditions, just like they burningly reject Starbucks and McDonalds) and the second one was a grand party at a huge venue in Montreal where we unfortunately went too early and too sober to wait for it to eventually be fun. This time, in the year that Halloween falls on a Friday, I’m not leaving it up to chance.

There’s no guarantee that my party is going to be fun either, since the fun factor always depends on the guests, but I know that I will do my best to turn my house into a picture perfect Halloween scene. For everybody who is young and not hipster enough to still care about Halloween, I’ve made a round up of hauntingly beautiful Halloween decoration ideas.
