Elizabeth and James Bags

Photo: WWD

“When it comes down to it our eye definitely goes to simplicity…and strong hardware and branding,” Mary-Kate said. “In this market, I think it’s important to offer color and special materials. The great thing about suede and haircalf is they take color so beautifully."

A navy blue, calf hair, casual-yet-chic bag? It's like they hear complaining ever Saturday when I'm walking through the bag section of Printemps Haussman. Not only are ALL of the bags so delicious, MK&A have said that they tried to create a line of bags that offers real luxury materials at affordable price points i.e. more than Minkoff and less than (Philip) Lim. Prices will range from $395 to $625 for bags. Excellent!

Now all that is left to do is wait until the bags come into stores (or in my case, online)... in July.

Twins: Céline Nano & Coach Mini Tanner

Céline Nano and Coach Mini Tanner

Anyone that knows me knows I am in love with the Céline Nano and in all colours. It would take me a good six months to save up the dollar for the Nano, so its very tempting to know that Coach have very similiar, $1000-less expensive sibling to my dream bag. I'm not one to go low-budget but I am seriously debating grabbing it on my up-coming trip to the states. 

Si vous me connaissez, vous saurez que je suis amoureuse de ce petit sac de Céline  Ça me prendra au moins 6 mois pour d’économiser l'argent pour le Céline Nano, donc j’hésite a opter pour sa petite soeur, le Coach Mini Tanner qui coûte 1000 dollars moins cher. Je vais au Etats-Unis en février, on va voir...

Lip Prints


I really love the idea of using lip print to decorate your walls. The home-made version looks like fun to make!

J'aime beaucoup l’idée de décorer les murs de l'appartement avec les lèvres partout. En plus, il est trop facile a faire vous-mêmes!

Plush Cushions


Thanks to their luxurious texture, I think these plush velvet cushions are the perfect way to add warmth and colour to a room without be tacky. I'm doing my best to hunt some down in Paris to spruce up my apartment. 

Grace à cette texture de luxe, je trouve que ces petits coussins en velours sont parfaits pour ajouter de la couleur dans votre appartement sans être de mauvais gout.  Je cherche partout dans Paris pour les coussins pareils…

Blue Eyes

I realise that my last three posts have centered around the colour blue but I just can't get away from it! This is a look I would love to try but my dark brown eyes tell me not too. I think this could be a really cool alternative to all those usual plummy, deep reddy looks that tend to dominate fall make-up. 

Je sais que mes trois derniers posts ont été plutôt “bleus” mais je ne peux pas échapper cette couleur en ce moment. Celle-ci est un look vraiment cool mais j’ai peur de l’essayer à cause de mes yeux bruns très fonce. Je trouve ce bleu électrique une super alternative aux violets et rouges foncés qui domine les looks d’automne.

Inspired: Oscar de la Renta SS13

I fell in love with this picture from backstage of the Oscar de la Renta show during NYFW last week and I managed to find these two pairs of more affordable shoes that can keep us going til Spring. There's something a bit 'Carrie circa 2000' about them, but that's ok with me. The flat are by French Sole and the heels are actually by Stylistpick.

J’ai tombé amoureuse de cette photo du défilé d’Oscar de la Renta qui avait eu lieu la semaine dernière à New York. Elles ont un peu l’air de ‘Carrie c. 2000’ mais moi, j’aime ça ! Heureusement j’ai trouvé ces deux paires de chaussures similaires qui peuvent faire office des vraies jusqu’au printemps. Les ballerines viennent de French Sole et les escarpins de Stylistpick.
