How to wear boyfriend jeans?

Boyfriends, lovers, husbands, fathers of our children…They all hate our boyfriend jeans while we absolutely love them for their comfort and easy look. So how to style them so they finally get to like them?

First of all, avoid wearing bulky sweaters or jackets with boy friends jeans. As they are slouchy, you have to have a tight bust to balance the look. No boots nor sneakers either as you have to show your ankles. They will seam a lot thinner with rolled up pant cuffs. The whole idea is to make everything other than the jeans look slimmer. So here’s how you can style them.

With preppy accessories like here, I am wearing my J.Crew boyfriends, paired up with a striped Pull and Bear tee shirt, a Zara navy blazer, some Chanel classic pumps and a Mochila bag to add a little bit of funkiness.

You can also wear it with a silk blouse, a little cleavage is better. Zara blouse, my J.Crew boyfriends jeans, Gucci belt, Louboutin sandals and lace printed leather purse made by me.

Same J.Crew boyfriend jeans paired with a Maje tee shirt and biker jacket, Prada heels and sliver leather clutch also made by me.

Or a more casual version with ballerina flats, here my Repetto bolt bolchoï ones paired with a poppy red silk Maje blouse and my Mochila bag.

And you, how do you wear your boy friends?

For FW 2014-15, we will go grocery shopping at the Chanel shopping store

Thought that “La Grande Epicerie du Bon Marché” was the chicest place to go grocery shopping in the city of lights? Well think again.

Mr. Karl Lagerfeld magically turned the Grand Palais into the über chic shopping center where the fashion crowd spent time browsing the alleys before the show started.

With his legendary wicked sense of humour, the Kaiser stacked up the shelves with Chanel and Coco branded products, announcing that they were having a special promotion, 20% more on the Cube by Chanel chicken broth. I love KL!

From water to sugar,

and cooking oil

It is even more hilarious knowing that Gabrielle Chanel didn’t even know how to cook and took all her meal from the Ritz where she had an apartment. I am quite positive than Mr Lagerfeld doesn’t know how to boil water nor knows where the grocery store is as may of the fashionistas invited too which makes the whole thing just brilliant. I wonder what did the people put into their trolleys and shopping baskets. The packaging are so beautiful that i would have been happy to bring any of them home…

Karl-vient-inspecter-la-mise-en-rayon_visuel_galerie2As for the show, beautiful and wearable as usual. Cara Delevingne opened up the show, all pretty and sporty in pink.00010h_1280x1920

As in the Haute Couture a few weeks ago, all the models walked down the runway wearing adorned sneakers. I particularly like the knee high version.

A lot of black, grey and white, as usual for Chanel. A lot of tweed and galon but amazingly enough, Karl Lagerfeld always manages to create new silhouettes, new looks, taking the DNA of the Brand to a new level and making look always new and fresh.

A lot of baby pink too, to add up to the young feeling of the collection and to remind us that winter wardrobe is not only about dark colors.

I LOVE the Chanel take on grocery shopping with basket made out of the legendary chains

or a matellassé “caddie”

The models shopped at the Chanel Super Store too, visibly enjoying themselves.ad_128915101ad_128914983 ad_128915805ad_128915008A superproduction for an unbelievable show that will be very difficult to top. Bravo Mr. Lagerfeld, you are always one step ahead of your time and a true visionnaire.

OK, Miley. We know you’re not a virgin anymore

And please stop rubbing it in our face, fortunately, you are not the only one having sex.

What happens to ex Disney Princesses? I still remember that phase Britney Spears went through when she started dated that retarded Wannabe singer Kevin Federline and couldn’t stop bragging about the tons of sex they had. As it happens, Miley Cyrus is ditching her princess attire as well, showing up on the red carpet in outfits that delights the Fashion Police.

I totally understand that growing up and finding your own personality can be challenging for any teenager. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for child stars who spent their youth behind cameras and being prompted for every line they uttered. But clumsiness or the eventual fashion disaster is a thing, what Miley is making us endure is another.

Just look at her latest appearence for the 2013 VMAS performance. Usually, when we hear Christmas and Chanel, we start doing a little victory dance but she single handedly managed to ruin our two favourite “C’s” in a split second. OK, everyone who knows me knows I am a big Chanel fan but this dead skunk looking purse that she is carrying is not the greatest one the Kaiser had designed. And who goes on stage singing carrying a purse?????

And she seamed to have found the North Pole and couldn’t stop gyrating against it.

The look on Will Smith and his family says it all…

It is vulgar, distasteful and all in all unattractive. She went from Disney princess to white slutty trash and is a terrible example for the kids who buy her music. Go home and rest Miley or you will end up in a rehab centre with as completely shaved head.

UNICEF fashion dolls for Darfur Children

The Paris petit Palais is the stage of the most unusual fashion show. from now till December 1st, it will host the world’s most fashionable dolls. For its 11th edition of the annual Frimousse des Créateurs, some major fashion houses have created a one-off doll to be sold at a UNICEF auction on Decembre 2nd. Designers this year had to create a doll symbolising their vision of “Wonderful Paris”. All proceeds will go towards providing vaccination for children in the Darfur region of Sudan.

Here are some of my favourites dolls, too bad I only have boys.

The Chanel one, very Mademoiselle…

The Chantal Thomass one, or how to transform the iron Lady into a doll.ImageThe very elegant Christian Dior one which looks like she is on a no carb dietImage

The shopaholic glam’ punk Lanvin dollImage

 

The byzantine all carb diet Dolce and Gabbana dollImage

 

The Prada one which looks like she smoked something a little stronger than no filter Gauloises

And the very unsettling Yvette Horner doll with her accordion by Jean-Paul Gaultier , not sure a little girl will fall for itImage

 

Santa Baby, I think I am going to blush

Well, I hope i have been extremely good because the new Chanel watch is imprinted on my retina since several months and, unless I still believe in Santa, there is no way it will end up in my stockings. Just to refresh your memory and make sure we are on the same fashion page, I am talking about this beauty, the gem set  steel chromatic J12 with a powdery pink dial set. Yesss! As Rachel Zoe would say, “I diiiiiiiiiiieeeeee”! but looking at the price tag, I think I will die for good.

Image

But how gorgeous would it look with these beautiful Valentino blush booties or strappy stilettos? By the way, I don’t know who is Valentino shoe maker but they definitely should keep him, he designs hit after hit and the Valentino pumps are the most covetable around.

Ok so now we have the blush shoes, the blush watch, what about a little blush bag? I spotted these ones on http://www.portero.com, the little Louis Vuitton clutch will be perfect for a young and sporty look, the Chanel one for a more classical silhouette.

Come on, let’s try to be very good and believe in Santa
