Hi babes! I know it’s been a while since I posted my last closet visit but you’ll see, I was worth waiting. Marjorie is a parisian fashion blogger who lives with her boyfriend and malicious cat Oreo in a cosy and welcoming apartment. Among vintage hats and funky derbies Marjorie and I turned her living room in a
real mess shooting studio, spied on by her cat who might have found us kinda odd. 2 cups of tea and many pastries later, here is the result :
What do you do in life?
I’m a merchandiser for a great fashion brand, so every day I create looks and store atmosphere for you to feel like at home when doing shopping (and buy more of course!). I started my blog one year ago where I mainly share my outfits and thoughts. For me, blogging remains a simple leisure and more than fashion I really want to share my interest in ethic cosmetics over the time. I try to pay attention to what I put on my skin and how it’s made since I don’t want my products to be tested on animals.
How would you describe your style?
I don’t think I have a defined style, I usualy adapt to occasions and my mood. One thing is sure: I never wear total glamourous or grunge looks, I love unexpected outfits pairing feminine with masculine, casual with fancy pieces, etc.
What are the pieces you find yourself wearing all the time?
I have a lovely collection of derbies which I wear with almost everything, I don’t feel so comfortable putting high heels on, so I’d rather go for flats in my daily life. Regarding clothes I love my fluffy and cocoon cardigans as well as thick shirts. I have tons of soft plaids and scarves in my closet and I can’t wait for winter to come.
How do you get inspired for your outfits?
It can sound weird but instead of reading a book in the subway I spend my time looking how people are dressed and how they style some pieces I also have. Inspiration can also come from one of the beautiful places we have in Paris. Of course I check out some other fashion blogs/instagrams and glance at Pinterest on inspirationless mornings (yes we all have some).
What’s on top of your wishlist?
I saw this blue wool Naf Naf coat the other day which still haunts my nights, I already have plenty of coats (and should maybe buy a staple black one) but I don’t think I’ll be able to resist! I may go for some black Jonak boots on my next shopping session (I swear I need them for real).
What’s the worst fashion faux-pas according to you?
Uggs! I mean, what’s the point about having those big masses at your feet? Several of my friends already tried to convert me to those shoes but until now, it remains a fail!
Brands and designers you love?
I would like to dress in Chloé but for now I mainly buy at Zara cause you can always find nice staples and go-to pieces, Mango and sometimes at h&m or Kilo Shop.
3 things you can’t live without?
My adorable cat Oreo, my boyfriend Kevin and the big white Jewellery box he lately bought me.
Meeting new fashion-lovers through closet visits is always very inspiring and pleasant but I have to say that Marjorie and I got along very well. Stay tuned cause it’s not the last time you’ll see her on my blog! Bisous.
