Day to night

day to night staples

I like the idea of having a few staples that can take me from day to night with just a few changes in accessories. Admittedly, I like the idea of not changing at all before going out:-). Here’s how it works:

1. Leather biker: All Saints

2. Platform sandals: Balenciaga S/S 2010

3. Sunnies: Linda Farrow Luxe

4. Silk blend tank: Kain

5. Gold plated ring: YSL

6. Pleated skirt: Pretaportobello

7. Crocodile ring: Topshop

8. Clutch: Proenza Schouler PS1

9. Nail lacquer: OPI Tasmanian devil

10. Dress: Dolce & Gabbana

11. Lace ring: Aurélie Bidermann

12. Golden eyeliner pencil: Benefit Cosmetics


Berlin Day 2

Berlin outfit of the day

Berlin Fashion Week day 2 outfit. My lovely co-worker took this picture of me this morning right before we headed out to see the first show (Schumacher). I am wearing a night blue Prada shirt all buttoned up with a swirly Isabel Marant Étoile print skirt. Oh and I just got these Chlóe sandals on sale a couple of days ago and am so in love! Their shape is completely retro – the kind of retro that is still a bit ahead of its time! Will try for a closer pic later.

a walk in the park…

It is such a beautiful weather here in Paris, so I decided to go for a stroll in the lovely park next to my place…


I wore my new Parka for the first time and tried to strike some serious military like poses for the pics… well I guess I ended up more like making a fool of myself infront of the Parisian families of my quartier



Parka by Stella Forest, belt by Zadig&Voltaire, shorts Zara, Falke tights customized by myself.

Sparkle it up!



Take a cue from these two fashion week beauties on how to instantly spice up an outfit.  

Its easy: Take out your favourite sequins party top and pair it with basic day time staples for an effortless yet glamorous look.

The day after

the day after

Hanging out at my sister’s place wearing pretty much everything my mom hates to see us in. Like faux-leather leggings and animal prints… This is a rather unusual outfit for me as I tend to dress more classic. But yeah…it’s “the day after”. So I just threw on some basic tee and added stuff from my sister’s closet;-)

Let me officially introduce to you my fabulous sister and – at the same time- my best real-life-fashion-friend.

May you all be inspired;-)!




I like this serious picture of her.


But she’s actually more like THIS! Like laughing a lot. And dirty.

Blazer, dress and shoes: all Zara, tights: Falke, mini clutch: Bottega Veneta, lipstick: T. LeClerc Rouge Vibrant.

Studs and Stripes

La Coupine 1 is finally back in town and we spent some quality girls time today: a little shopping, strolling through the streets and good coffee of course. Perfect saturday!

Blazer and studded gloves

Wearing my “souvenirs” from Paris: studded gloves and a double-breasted wool-blazer. BTW this chocolate-colored vespa from the 50′s belongs to an antique store in that street. It’s great!

Close-up of the gloves

Close-up of the gloves. They are definitely the coolest accessory I own! Found at Le Bon Marché on the ground floor.


The rest of this outfit is rather basic. I am saving the dressing-up for tonight;-). It’s Halloween (as one can easily tell by the two giant pumpkins in the background)! Have a great night out everyone!

Blazer: Isabel Marant Étoile, striped tee: H&M, wool vest: Humanoid, old skinnies, gloves: from Le Bon Marché Paris, ballerinas: Tory Burch.

Fall-ish part two


Last weekend we did our first outfit shoots for this fall, it was a beautiful day and the light was just perfect. While Sarah went for faux fur, I decided to play a bit with forms. So I paired my drop-crotch pants with sculptural shoulders.

Fall-ish part one

Fall-ish outfit number one

To be honest it was a little too hot for FAUX FUR when we shot fall outfits on Sunday. But then again you have to work a trend when it’s hot, right;-)? And apparently faux fur is one of the hottest things right now! So hurry up, weather!

Golden days

Golden days

I had an awesome time these past couple of days. It’s been warm, sunny and beautiful – just like a golden fall should be. And BTW it’s my favourite fashion season!

Took some pictures down by the harbour with my new photographer;-). He did an amazing job catching the warm glow of the fall light!

Just came back from a short trip to my favourite spot in the world: Lago Maggiore (a.k.a. THE lake!). Its mediterranean flair and the good old 70′s-glam that has somehow never left make this place very inspiring. Yet it is totally quiet and relaxing unlike other lakes in Northern Italy. My sis and I decided to take some shots right before sundown trying to catch the gloaming light:

Black ‘n Blues

Ruffled top

This ruffled top is definitely one of my summer favourites. It has some kind of extravaganza to it that makes all of my dull basics (old skinnies in this case) instantly look fashionable. Could use more of that…ha, ha.

sharp shoulders & soft colors

Cardigan with shoulder pads

I like contrasts. So I was extremely happy when I found this shoulder-padded cardigan/jacket/awesome piece at H&M yesterday. The color is a powdery rose which perfectly sets off the sharp-shoulders and makes it work for late summer days as well as fall.
