Finding the right pair of blue jeans can be a lifetime quest. I do have a few that look ok on me but I am part of that generation who doesn’t settle for an “Ok”. So that day I was in Reims to visit my Sister and saw that pair of jeans in the perfect wash hanging in her closet. I tried them on, Bingo! They looked like bespoke for me, elongating my legs and fitted but just enough to don’t emphasize my hips. Cause yes, I do have wide hips for my size and that’s probably the reason why you see me wearing so many skirts and dresses. I’m quite small (only 1,62 m) and can easily look like a little cheese souffle despite the fact that I try to stay slim. Anyway, I borrowed these jeans for the shoot and then headed to the first (and only) Zara in town to buy the exact same ones and have been wearing them almost everyday since then (as you may have seen on my Instagram).
I wanted a look that would be both classical and sexy at the same time (nothing groundbreaking when you’re french) and what’s easier than unbutton your shirt a little more than usual? If like me you don’t have proeminent boobs you can definitely afford wearing that spiced up style daily and look effortlessly sexy as hell.
I’m so bad at dressing for winter time, I’d rather wear some shorts and bikini tops all year long but for once I think I’ve made the job right?! I was also wearing this really slick and elegant handbag by Christian Louboutin that I got at the press sales. It appears to me as a good investment since I always prefer splurging on leather accessories and those basic lines and colors obviously won’t go out of style over the upcoming centuries!
As I’m getting older (come on I’m almost 22!) I try to invest in pieces that will last and upgrade my wardrobe. Experimenting with my style through the blog helped me to figure out what is worth spending money on and what is not. And I came to the conclusion that I should splurge on 4 major categories: Shoes, bags, coats and jewellery (silver in my case), always in neutral tones or with a one-of-a-kind design. Unfortunately my student/intern statut doesn’t allow me to shop this way as often as I wish (understand every day) but I do manage to increment my closet step by step. It’s a long way to go when you start from zero like me, since neither my Mom or Grandma were interested in fashion and could have possibly bequeath some vintage designer bags to me. I love this idea of owning a piece that have had a “life” before you and can actually be older than you are but for now I’ll settle for my brand new acquisition and postpone a vintage purchase to another time. Bisous.
