I Never Expire

I always believe there’s a funny plot twist in every person’s life story, something that happens to them very ironically when they think they’re the last person it can happen to. To me that thing was getting married. Despite the endless – sometimes subliminal – pressure you get all your life as a girl to get married, to have kids and live a “proper” life, I kept on chanting Anouk’s “Nobody’s Wife” like it was my personal anthem. I kept on laughing when my friends tell me despite what I say, I’ll be the first one to get married. I couldn’t be in serious relationships and marriage simply wasn’t fit for me. Then, at 19 years old, I met the love of my life. After dating for 7 years we got married when we were 26 years old. And yes, we were the first ones among our friends to get married. It wasn’t a splashy proposal and a show off wedding. It wasn’t because we had to get married because we’ve been together for so …

Harriet

I think there was only one way to make a slip dress look cooler and even more sexy at the same time and Millie +Lou managed to find it: hot pressing harriet prints on a vintage ivory satin apron dress. I’m so insanely in love with this dress I even got over my “wearing sleepwear outside” phobia (FOWSO?) – I needed a trench to make it more city-friendly but I’m taking this baby to vacation and there will be numerous nights where it will be just me and her (and some underwear probably…maybe). .

Concrete Jungle

I fell in love with this dress the minute, nay, the second I saw it (and here’s proof) so it’s no surprise that I immediately made it mine. Everything about it is just perfect; the fabric, the length, tassel detail at the skirt, the belt, the neck… Flattering and not so girly, subtly sexy but mostly cool. Thank you Nanushka for creating the dress of my dreams just in time for summer. . Cream weave dress Nanushka . Brown leather Puzzle bag Loewe (or get it here & here) .

Best of Coachella 2017

I’ve given up on indie-rock-pop music festivals approximately 2 years ago when I had the worst time at Osheaga and realized I was the only one bored because I was the only one there for the music (and was not high) and didn’t care at all about how I looked. Ever since the first time I went to a rock music festival (I was 17) I’m all about “Will I be able to pee comfortably in this?” “Will I get sunburns in this?” “Is there enough space in my tent for this?” “Will my feet hurt in this after 15 hours standing up?” so girls in flower crowns and white crochet dresses with sandals or boys showing off their six packs in trucker hats that attend the entire festival (whereas I buy tickets to only the days I’m interested in) but have no clue about the music started to freak me out. I’m still attending rock festivals where we dance and jump in dust all day and eventually sleep in our car at night, but …

Yeti On My Feet

About three years ago I found a long fur string (which was probably a stole once) at a vintage store in Montreal for just $10, under many many other fabrics and immediately thought I should have it. The friend I was with that day, who wasn’t particularly interested in fashion, looked at me in shock and asked me what the hell I’m going to do with it. “I don’t know, something, someday” I replied, thinking I’d probably hem a skirt or stitch a collar with it and left the store as the cashier thought I was buying it for a Halloween costume and mumbled some jokes. Three years later and that fur not only turned into several pieces of jewelry but also helped me transform my once-cool-now-dull Zara black slides into furry sandals, and I still have more fur left.
