All-black has become some sort of uniform. When I think of the non-colour black, some words instantly come up to my mind like modesty, elegance, chic, rock, mystery and sexiness. Femme fatale like Rita Hayworth in 1946 Gilda Hollywood movie or lady’s maid at Downton Abbey!
In this post, I chose to wear a fuzzy off-white fake fur jacket over grey knit and jeans and the usual suspects: a black vintage Chanel bag and Isabel Marant low boots. I love the fluffiness of these fake fur winter coats and jackets which are on trend!
As a Parisian, I love cafés on the left bank at Saint Germain des prés, sitting at a terrace and watching hurried people passing by or debating about politics- national sport, going to museums and walking in Tuileries Gardens in the fall season…This way of life is deeply rooted in the history of the City. Looking effortless is part of the game
I have a saying “when the going gets tough, the tough go (shoe) shopping”. When I am in this mood or merely searching for inspiration, there is really only but one place that will do the trick, I name it, ladies (and gentlemen..) welcome to le Bon Marché Rive Gauche department store, located on the left bank of the Seine, in Paris. The temple of luxury.
