Trade My Wardrobe With… Molly in Uptown Girls

It is with a lot of fondness and great sadness that I spent time going through Brittany Murphy’s outfits in Uptown Girls today. As I reminisced about that time of my life and about the actual movie which I remember thoroughly enjoying, I decided to watch it again. And dear Lord was the nostalgia crushing… That and the fact that Ms. Murphy, such a lovely … Continue reading Trade My Wardrobe With… Molly in Uptown Girls

Fashion: Why Rihanna Is The Perfect Cure To Coachella Fatigue

Say what you will about Rihanna’s personal style, at least she’s got bags of it. Personally, I feel like she looks like a hot mess most of the time, but I also rate her for it. She breaks down fashion cliches every chance she gets, sporting tops, bottoms and dresses that barely fit the human form on the regular. It’s been a journey watching her … Continue reading Fashion: Why Rihanna Is The Perfect Cure To Coachella Fatigue

San Francisco: 41 Things You Should Know

Before moving to San Francisco, I had this Hollywood-fed image of the city – a Fullhouse-Mrs-Doubtfire fueled ocean of cute, colourful houses on hills.

Culture: 19 Things I Miss As a Parisian Abroad

Fashion: Trade My Wardrobe With… Courtney Love

Not to obsess over the 90s but it seems it’s one of the eras that really stuck with me style-wise. Funnily enough my style isn’t particularly 90s inspired at all, nevertheless I can’t help but look back on that decade and think that the grimy grunge style they had going is how I’d like to dress most days. The staple destroyed-rag-doll outfit is one of … Continue reading Fashion: Trade My Wardrobe With… Courtney Love

Fashion: Trade My Wardrobe With… The Birkin Girls’?

France has been the breeding ground for many international fashion icons over the years but as a French person myself, I am possibly more familiar with attention-worthy national icons who never really made it abroad. Two of our fashion queens from back in the day, you should be acquainted with already – namely Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin (although Birkin is a UK native) – … Continue reading Fashion: Trade My Wardrobe With… The Birkin Girls’?
