The Elle Collection

Mar 29, 2013

Aren't these retro Elle covers playful and stylish enough for you? Guess what? They are in fact part of the new Elle stationary Collection, which is celebrating the evolution of the famous French magazine. Ranging from notebooks to pencil boxes and everything in between, the sparkly collection will be available mid-April throughout Canada and Europe.

Which witty illustration will you pick to express your inner Parisian?

Joe Fresh Noir Collection For Fall 2013

Mar 28, 2013

I was quite smitten by the chic Noir Collection presented by Joe Fresh for Fall 2013. Showcased at the Toronto Fashion Week, the upcoming collection is surprisingly all-black, with a few graphic black and white pieces scattered here and there. What a shocker for a brand known every season for its brilliant color schemes! 

Have a look at some of my favorite feminine silhouettes:

Do you notice anything special about the shoe soles? Do you think this is the new Joe Fresh signature?

H&M has just announced a new partnership for its summer campaign with global superstar Beyoncé. The entertainer, who kicks off her sold out Mrs. Carter Show World Tour on April 15th, will appear in television and print ads featuring pieces from the H&M summer collection.

The clothing line will feature the key pieces we need for life in the sun this summer, such as the perfect bodycon dress, the flowing sun dress as well as many glamorous bikinis. The swimwear and beachwear pieces will be available beginning May in H&M stores worldwide.

Isn't Beyoncé drop dead gorgeous in this first campaign image shot in Nassau? Can't wait to see the entire collection!

Blush Palette

Mar 20, 2013

I can't wait for spring to kick in to wear my favorite color of the moment: dainty blush. Ranging from champagne to soft peach, the blush palette is a breath of fresh air after a season of dark and highly pigmented colors. Here are a few key pieces to express your feminine and sophisticated side with style:

Blush Palette

Zimmermann Long summer dress / T By Alexander Wang silk top / Reiss cropped leather jacket / Roberto Cavalli jeans / Steven by Steve Madden patent leather pumps / Alexander McQueen leather handbag / House of Harlow 1960 bangle bracelet / Mulberry brown shawl / Linda Farrow Luxe oversized sunglasses

Which blush item do you fancy most? I am loving the Alexander McQueen bag quite a lot.

Karen Walker Anytime Eyewear

Mar 18, 2013

I absolutely love the retro vibe of the Anytime sunnies made by New-Zealand-based designer Karen Walker. With their cartoonish cat eye, oversized and thicker frames, these statement shades add instant glam to any outfit. Though I find the classic black frame gorgeous, I am particularly fond of the tortoiseshell one.

How stunning is the 80-year-old goddesss Joyce Carpati, which appears in the latest Karen Walker ad campaign? That's one stylish lady!

Sea Sand Sun

Mar 17, 2013

I have recently traded the endless Canadian winter for some well-deserved R&R in sunny Florida. I rarely get to take some time off around this time of year, so I am even more thrilled to be here. It's such a blessing to leave the maddening cold behind to enjoy the sea and the sun. There is something exhilarating about the fact that one can get from the cold to the muy caliente within just a few hours. Isn't the coolest thing? I definitively think so!

On this happy note, I am wishing you a happy and festive St. Patty's Day!

Shamrock Green

Mar 13, 2013

It's that time of year again. The few days leading up to St. Patrick's Day when many are anticipating drinking Guinness while others are feeling inspired to create strange green recipe for their loved ones.

From my perspective, St. Patrick's Day symbolizes the end of winter. And after a very brutal one, my eyes are eager to be surrounded by green, to be inspired by green again. Here are a few green things that have captured my imagination lately.

Are you also awaiting spring with great anticipation?

Lady Crush: Clémence Poésy

Mar 7, 2013

I have a complete fascination for French actress Clémence Poésy, the blond ingénue who was discovered as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter film series. Aside from playing in European and Hollywood productions, the 30 years-old actress is also a proud Chanel Ambassador, a style icon and a talented watercolourist (see my previous post featuring her Chanel paintings). But it is probably her angelic face, her playful nature and her joie de vivre that I find most enchanting about her.

Take a look at the pictures below and tell me you are not captivated by her gaze and her unbelievably fresh complexion?
