How To Wear A Work Appropriate Outfit When It’s Freezing?

Hello there,

Winter is coming here.  Unfortunately, most of us can’t work from home; which means we have to get our asses off the bed, get dressed, and above all, we have to dress work appropriately.  This can be a huge undertaking when it’s 0°C outside and when it’s dark when you get out the door.  You know what I’m saying?

But just because it’s dark, and cold, and raining, and realllllyyyy difficult to be a responsible adult (ugh!), it doesn’t mean we have to go through all that unstylish.  Right? So here are some looks  that you can get some inspiration from for the next 2 months of winter – probably 3 if you’re Belgian 😉

Trench coat and pant suit

Nothing revolutionary, but boy it’s pretty!  And classy.  And empowering.  I don’t know why, but anytime I wear a trench (or a long) coat I feel way more confident.  Don’t get me started on  the pant suit…  And if you want to protect yourself from the cold, the coat will definitely do the trick.

Oscars 2017: My Top 10

All right, this is it! The apotheosis: the Academy Awards 2017.

I was really excited about the winners when I listened to the radio this morning, and I was not disappointed when I watched the red carpet arrivals. One word. Stunning. And dreamy. That’s two words, I know. But it is well deserved.

What did we see? A lot of white, a lot of black and a lot of nude. Not much colors, but the ones who rocked some colors, did so beautifully. Let’s have a look at my top 10 top 15 (it is the Oscars after all, you didn’t expect me to find only 10 dresses that I love, did you?)!

10 Things You Didn’t Know About… Oscar de la Renta

Hey there,

Oscar de la Renta makes the news today.  Three days ago, he would have turned 84 years old.  Five days ago, Peter Copping announced that he would leave the brand immediately.  So I thought it would be nice to get to know the late designer a little better!

  1.  Oscar de la Renta was born July 22, 1932 in the Dominican Republic and died in Connecticut at the age of 82, after a long battle with cancer.  When he was 18, he travelled to Madrid to study painting at the Academy of San Fernando.  How did he get into fashion?  When he was in Madrid, he was enlisted by Cristobal Balenciaga to sketch for him.  Afterwards, he went to Paris and worked at Lanvin; and then he moved to New York in the early 60’s and set up his own label [1,2].

Eternal Optimist: SS16 Trend

Hello girls,

I hope you’re all doing great, and that you can feel Spring coming… I personally can feel it, and I love it ❤

As you can see, I’ll address the Eternal Optimist trend in this post.  According to InStyle, the Eternal Optimist is:

“You want to loathe her, but you can’t. She’s just the best, and so damn cool in her boldly colored actif-sportif outfits, ideal for dropping the kids off at school, doing yoga, and baking gluten-free cookies that happen to be delicious. Like Karlie Kloss, she’s a role model for the athleisure set, radiating positivity with a dazzling smile.”

How To Wear An All-White Look – In Honor of Wimbledon

Hey there,

How are you?  Are you super-duper-sad about friday’s game?  I know I am… And I want to get over it as fast as possible!  Lucky me, there’s Wimbledon to make me feel better.

If you know a bit about this mythic tennis tournament, you probably know that it has a very specific dress code.  In London, players have to wear an all white ensemble.  The organization is pretty strict about it.  A couple of years ago, some female players had to change bras because they were not all white.  Too much?  Maybe, but this dress code is also what makes Wimbledon so epic.  And just for the anecdote, this year had also its lot of controversy with the Nike “nightie” dress.
