Shades of Lavender

I occasionally wear just a tee and jeans but even then I never go for basic designs or colors. Here I wore a deep purple lavender Calvin Klein Tee and painted my nails to match. As the saying goes, simple does not have to be simplistic.

Maxi White

Some mornings you stand in front of your wardrobe and are totally unsure what to wear. On such days, I reach for my “fall back” favorite pieces, mix and match them, and they always work! This time, I went for an all-white look with a maxi skirt, oversized crop top, and killer heels. I also took out one of my most precious vintage accessories which blended in just right. Just like a magic act, le tour est joué!

How to Rock a Little White Dress

As you have probably already noticed, I am not into the pink-cute-sissy look. I like the rock style and pieces that give off strong vibes. Nonetheless, I do sometimes fall for “pretty” clothes, just like this Aziza Zina white dress I received two years ago. I discovered the designer at Mode Suisse fashion show and ever since have been eagerly following her creations. Here is an idea on how to put on a feminine dress but yet not get overly girlie. I first contrasted the soft design of the dress by wearing black studded flats matched with the latest pliage Longchamp bag. Then, I went for a denim jacket to mitigate the classiness of the dress. I worked my hair into a messy braid and finished up the look with mirror blue glass shades. How do you find my “feminine-rock” style? Any other ideas?

Casual Chic

Last week, I went to Geneva for a few meetings and to savor Les Vendanges de Genève. This is a yearly event where many stores in the city stay open late in the evening and you can enjoy their latest additions with a glass of fine wine. The after-work atmosphere with well-dressed revelers in the streets makes it a rather special evening. Thus, I needed a chic yet casual outfit, and comfy shoes to walk around all day. I opted for my stripped Esprit skirt into which I tucked a gray tee. The classy blazer added a dash to the look.
