Fashion

It blooms soon

 

Do you like flowers as a print? This season it’s plenty of that. Let’s not doing too much with flowers because you don’t want to look like a hippie living in the wrong decades. The thing is to find the right balance, to combine with neutral colours and to not appear over disguised but to pretend that it fits you naturally.  🙂

Fine Lingerie

 

I’ve always appreciated fine lingerie with lace, delicate, very simple design, not compact and light. I mean not with padding … i don’t like pretending having boobs.

In Paris, there is not a huge choice about the ones i like at an affordable price. These are my favourite pieces i’d like to introduce you. I had a crush on & Other Stories and Girls in Paris lingerie.

& Other Stories: i check sometimes if there are new ones i like. I suggest you to try at store before ordering anything online because the size is really variable from an item to another.

Girls In Paris, a lovely brand that tries to give something new to la parisienne lingerie. It’s for me a mix of california trend to the nowadays french girls. I’m really looking for this kind of style. I bought the Charlie model here. it’s sold in set of 2. You have several choice of colours black/white, Blak/Deep blue, Black/Nude etc. The panties size small so i suggest you to take a size larger. I usually wear 36 but i ordered a 38/40 and it fits OK.

I’d also like to introduce you if you don’t know yet these oversea brands: Gooseberry Intimates and For Love and Lemons. I think it gives a new perspective to the lingerie. It’s a particular design still sophisticated, very unique and sexy. I haven’t ordered anything because it’s more expensive than what i showed you above. Plus, as i live in Paris, the shipping fees are not very interesting and i don’t really know what size to take (S or XS). I’ll keep you in touch when i’ll buy something on it.

Current material trends

Velvelt

This season velvet is the new black. It’s adding a new definition to the outfit and undoubtly gives you something elegant & chic. However i don’t like wearing velvet clothings because the velvet is not smooth to the touch and it captures easily the dust. Plus, i have long and lots of hair which get electrified in winter and this kind of material makes my hair messy. Last point, there are specific instructions for cleaning. Good Luck ! 🙂 Yes I do like the practical side.

Lace x Sequins x Shiny materials

It’s an annual rendez vous for lace & sequins especially for end of year parties. Shiny materials are something really new this season and have been declined in several textures and colors (metallic, vinyl, shiny, sparkles, glitter). About sequins, I’m personnally not a huge fan because it damages your other clothings and you can lost easily some sequins.

Tulle

I don’t know how it has been introduced this year but it’s not my kind of taste. It reminds me so much Carry Bradshow tutu in Sex and the City. You can notice this season is the trend of ballerina style (ballet flats, tulle skirts).

And you, do you like these new materials? what do you think?
