Shopping

Thanksgiving Attire

As a non-american shopaholic who lives to eat, thanksgiving means guilt free binge eating & sales shopping in good conscience to me. With all the black friday & cyber monday sales coming up, I of course made my studies and piled up tens of items in my shopping cart(s) ready to be attacked when time comes. And the time has come guys. Shopbop‘s biggest sale of the year starts as of this moment and will last for an entire week, though I don’t think much will be left by December 1st. There are NO brand exclusions and the more you purchase the better the savings. (I’m the girl your parents would tell you to stay away.)

Here are my 5 recent favorite fall looks to copy that would ease your thanksgiving belly while amping up your style game.

The Winter Vest

The Winter Vest

The Winter VestIt doesn’t have to be a winter vest per se, any kind of sleeveless & open front jacket or coat you throw on over your sweaters and/or under your coats count as winter vests and they are awesome. Years ago, when I was trying to figure out the tricks of the layering trade, I discovered that a vest was the missing part of that unsolvable equation. Come summer or winter, a vest is the thing you need to unbland the look without compromising comfort. And just like pretty much everything else, it’s better when it comes in wool.

Must Have: Camel Coat

Must Have: Camel Coat

Must Have: Camel Coat

Life lesson of today: One simply cannot have too many camel coats. It’s so essential that it should have had its own initials by now, you know like a LBD – every woman has to have a CC. It makes every outfit look at least twice as expensive, it brings out the most of grey, black, white and blue jeans & it’s one of my personal favorites. I have a camel blazer, boyfriend, maxi, hooded and teddy; one suede and printed coat on the way and still there are at least two camel coats in all my shopping lists. After getting the stamp of approval from The Cut, I decided to make a post about the 20 must have camel coats of the season & 40 best camel street style looks.

Fire The Flare

Fire The Flare

Flare JeansI can’t think of another bottom – skirt, shorts, pants or otherwise – that looks good, I mean GOOD, on every.single.woman on earth. That super power is bestowed upon only and only one thing: flared trousers. Not bootcut, not boyfriend, not bell bottoms – flare is a complicated yet a Parisianly simple cut: fitting around thighs with gradually and tastefully widening cuffs starting from below the knee; flared trousers are the invisibility cloaks of real world. Elongating the legs by at least 10cm no matter how high your heels are and slimming you down 2 sizes at a time, it’s always a chic, safe, photo proof, easy to make a transition from day to night option that you should have in your closet in every possible color.

Why am I making a post about flared trousers now while they were always in fashion? Their only downside is (was) you have to keep on wearing your heels and can’t change into flats when you need to but now it’s acceptable, if preferable, to wear them with sneakers and flats with a shorter cuff. Hip hip hooray and fire the flare!

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.

Dress The Bump and Beyond

Dress The Bump and Beyond

hippie mothersI don’t know about you but lately everyone I know is either pregnant, trying to get pregnant, planning on getting pregnant, or already had their baby and trying to figure out what to do with their maternity clothing. Living in a country with ridiculously humane maternity (and paternity) leave conditions is also another reason why I encounter young parents everyday and it’s making me think about (no, not having kids yet, but) how I would dress up as a pregnant woman without wasting tons of money on stuff I wouldn’t ever wear again.

After the most “bumpy” fashion week of all time & Blake Lively announcing her pregnancy in the cutest dress I’ve ever seen (was I the only one who focused on THAT dress?) I thought it’s time to make a post about maternity style & beyond. Here are some of the most beautiful pieces I’ve found that would work during pregnancy and afterwards.
