Summer rocks!

19 Jul

Ever felt douchy wearing a flower dress in July? A tick in the box for me, the first of many…

Sincerely, I deeply admire weather chameleons. As long as I am concerned, when it’s summer (in the calendar) but actually feels like “rainy sunday” every day of the week, my fashion instinct just loses it.

I can’t help it, thick waterproof fabrics, anti-slip boots and scratchy sweaters are unthinkable parts of my summer plans!

Result : I end up wearing a dozen of layers (pretty much half of my summer closet) in a dubious combination of colors and shapes, hoping the sun will come out any minute and let me breathe!!

And, let’s face it, a guy called Murphy will probably make it happen the day I will undo my winter boxes and let wool and velvet back in my drawers.

In the meantime, to see the bright side of the neverending rain and drop in temperature, at least we skip feeling guilty for the pre-summer diet we totally screwed up (again), we don’t get pervy looks and talks everytime we step out, and we might even avoid the typical summer flings that are usually the consequences of fair-weather euphoria, alcohol in the sun and not wearing much clothes from the beginning – leading us to anything but good surprise and raise of self-esteem.

So thumbs up! to the fashonistas who adjust to any possible circumstances and situations and for the rest (incl. me) let it rain and flood our fashion identity.

Anyway what happens in the summer, stays…

The Style Of A Queen

20 Mar

Il paraît que c’est dans cette petite tenue que Kate a séduit le Prince William lors d’un Charity Fashion Show à l’université. Le fait que la fameuse “robe” ait été récemment vendue par sa créatrice, Charlotte Todd, pour £78,000 est  juste un peu moins choquant que la tête de chiffon que la future reine affichait ce soir là, ainsi que le grand exploit de son coiffeur..!

Jennifer Aniston is Allure Magazine’s February 2011 cover girl. On the cover page, the 41-year-old actress is featured giving an attention grabbing stare with nude lips. Inside the magazine, she is featured cuddling a teddy bear and donning a Barbie doll expression on her face.

The inspiration of the creative director, Paul Cavaco, came from a 1960s photograph of Brigitte Bardot. Too bad Jen ends up looking more like a wax doll trying to appear 20 years younger and looses a lot of the natural charm and glam’ of Bardot.

American Unapparel

Amercian Apparel, littéralement “vêtement américain”, se dépasse dans sa dernière campagne de pub en ne suggérant sa nouvelle collection de bas que très approximativement. Sans complexe, la marque traditionnelle de “basiques” toujours très sobres et de qualité impeccable fait preuve ici d’un changement radical dans ses choix créatifs. Budget réduit ou tentative de provocation pour générer l’intérêt? Les hommes n’étant pas, pour le coup, leur cible stratégique je pense que l’intérêt positif récolté doit être proche de nul…

Le résultat: on est pas vraiment certain de ce qu’ils vendent et on peut se demander aussi qui achètera.
