Hello my lovely readers ! I hope you are all well and cozy all bundled up in your fuzzy sweaters, drinking piping hot chocolate in front of trash TV (Top Chef I see you) to fight this unbearable cold. I'm sure all the scandinavian folks must be laughing at my so called "cold" weather and the New York fashionistas would consider me lucky to be able to walk in the street in heels without the stiletto sinking in five feet of snow. So here is a very festive outfit if your wish is to be the only diamond at your soirée. Sparkly mini dresses are overrated and frankly make me feel like I'm in Jersey Shore munching on a fried pickle. No offense Snooki, I'm actually quite jealous of your cheeto puff tan. But let's not forget the topic here: classy sparkles. You see, instead of going the obvious way, choose to make your legs pop with some shiny lurex leggings ! To tone all this shizz down you will need a chunky cable knit sweater and some graphic heels. Now, as Rihanna would say, you are ready to be beautiful like diamonds in the sky.

Hello world ! Imagine if you could turn back time and relive, or live if you are an ignorant teenager like me, the best decades in the twentieth century ! Wouldn't that be grand? I'd say it would. So let's start by the 60's, era of PVC dresses and go-go boots. My interpretation is slightly toned down as I live in Paris, city of the I-only-wear-black-white-and-grey people. Sure, I will probably stand out in this outfit but it's only for the sake of putting myself into Twiggie's shoes (fiiiiine I may not have her legs)(but please let me pretend).

Hello my loves ! I don't know about you, but waking up at 7:00 this morning for school after two weeks of lounging in my sweatpants till noon, watching crap TV while munching cereal, has made me quite cranky and most importantly, I was not prepared to put together an outfit at this early time of day. Eyes half closed, I wondered if I could go to school in nothing but my pajamas without losing friends and my dignity. Frankly, I just wanted to go back to sleep and flee the wonderful world of mathematics. Alas, my beloved mother would never let me do so. I then thought about an outfit that would look like a pajama but still be acceptable to walk out of my house in. A simple slouchy polka dot shirt, a pair of jeans, shoes as comfortable as slippers and a nice cozy faux fur jacket. Just like that I was ready to tackle my school day. This was a lie, I am never ready for a school day and I'm still tired as I'm writing this post. I think it's time for my nap, goodbye.

Hello ! Did I ever let you guys know that all I want for christmas is you ? Well, now that you are aware of that it is your turn to confess your love to me so we can all move on to today's subject. Soooo, since it's the beginning of December, the only month you are aloud to listen to Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé sing about the joys of decorating a tree, I thought I'd reiterate my ChristmasEdition tradition.
You might argue that I'm a bit early to join the festivities but my motto is : "It's never too early to dress as a fictional obese old man whose best friends are dwarves wearing a pointy hat" This isn't actually my motto. And sorry for the eight-year-old who is reading me, no, Santa does not exist. Get over it.
Having said that, you can still bring Santa Claus to life by dressing in a crisp red coat and putting on your silliest Santa hat. I could have dressed in green and ignored the impact of Coca-Cola on the legendary character's attire but then again, I enjoy my glass of Diet Coke on the rocks once in a while when I'm feeling down. I am not sponsored by coke even though it would be quite nice to have a fridge stocked with this tasty fizzy drink all year round...(Hi Coca-Cola, if you are reading me, which I doubt you are, please sponsor me. I love you. My wallet doesn't)

Howdy ! Today we are dressing as sexy cowboys of the Wild Wild West, drawing our inspiration from the Fall/Winter Isabel Marant runway and Javier Bardem in No country for old men. You may think going out in a high-crowned, wide-brimmed hat and cowboy boots might be slightly risky but the truth is you don't need these superfluous elements to embody a western local! I centered this outfit around this gorgeous western-style embellished jacket I found at a vintage store in the Marais. The rest was simple, I just added some plaid and buckled booties and voilà, you are ready to catch a herd of cows while riding your horse...in the street. Just be warned horses tend to have a hard time respecting stop signs.

Hello ! Have you ever dreamt of making everyone stare while you strut the street, causing all the Toyotas to freeze when you cross the road ? Well, this might be your lucky day ! Learn how to cause a scene wherever you decide to grace the streets with your presence. The basic component of this outfit are these black jeans with an extravagant neon yellow lining. They seem to have been left in the hands of an eight-year-old-schoolboy who found it amusing to violently slash your jeans with his highlighter. To complement this vibrant hue, add more neon but be careful, you don't want to look too much like a safety jacket. As a finishing touch I suggest investing in a good moto-style coat which shouldn't be too difficult as they seem to be proliferating in about every high street store. Mine is from Zara and might prove to be my all-time favorite coat ever! So remember, to turn heads this fall, dress as a traffic sign.
