WHAT TO WEAR FOR CHRISTMAS EVE




Merry Christmas Lovelies!

This is the time of the year again where family and friends are celebrating Christmas! You can feel in the streets, cafes, restaurants,shopping centers and homes the good vibes that christmas and its decor, ornaments and lights bring upon people everywhere in the world. People seem very happy and it's just another occasion to celebrate the festive season but mainly to share love and peace with family and friends. So I decided to wear for christmas a red evening gown that will match nicely with the entire christmas decorations at home. There is lot of food, drinks as usual when family and friends get together but knowing myself  I'll eat a bit of each meal to make sure I don't get too much weight after that. Easy said than done! :) I'm ready to dance all night and just enjoy myself with loved ones!







Peace, love and happiness to you on this Christmas! Have fun and stay tuned for more fashion style ideas!

INSPIRING PIECES OF ART BY EMMA LINDSTROM




I came across recently with Emma Lindstrom artwork and since then I couldn't get enough of her amazing and beautiful paintings. 26 years old Swedish painter creates colorful swirls using a combination of acrylic and spraypaint. Her work feels that it comes from a different galaxy through the colors change and the visuals she uses.




She wants to evoke in her viewers some kind of emotion that speaks to their inner selves and  the light that resides there. Personally that's what I felt when I first saw her artwork. The subtle combination of colours and shapes first attracted my attention, then when I looked closer, my mind started wandering and I could imagine beautiful things (I can't describe it though) that inspired me and that made me feel good, at peace with my inner self.

NOUVELLE COLLECTION DE CHAUSSURES PAR GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI ET JENNIFER LOPEZ





Le créateur Italien de chaussures Giuseppe Zanotti et Jennifer Lopez s'associent pour créer une nouvelle collection de chaussures et accéssoires qui sera mise sur le marché en Janvier 2017 dans des boutiques exclusives de chaque continent. Les chaussures de ce créateur sont magnifiques que ce soit les sandales, escarpins ou tennis. J'aime la façon dont ces chaussures sont structurées de manière originale, leur style, leur élégance mais surtout leur comfort car en effet il n'y a rien de plus horrible que d'essayer de marcher avec des chaussures qui nous font mal aux pieds et du coup qui peuvent ruiner une sortie ou un moment qui était censé être agréable.





Le designer dit avoir toujours été inspiré par Jennifer Lopez et par la façon dont elle porte ses créations car elle représente ce que ses chaussures sont: sophistiquées, sensuelles, modernes avec une petite touche d'ironie. Pour la chanteuse Américaine, qu'elle soit sur un tapis rouge ou habillée de manière décontractée, une  belle paire de chaussures complète sa tenue, la rend encore plus belle et lui donne plus d'assurance. Cette nouvelle collection sera donc un reflet de leurs deux personnalités. Et en fashionistas et shoes addicts que nous sommes, nous avons hâte de découvrir cette nouvelle collection car nous aimons tout ce qui est beau, élégant et qui innove, n'est-ce pas?

TOP 5 DE MES CREATEURS AFRICAINS FAVORIS

Bonjour Fashionistas!

Merci de vous arrêter pour lire une nouvelle édition de  Fashionistas Looks! Aujourd'hui j'aimerais partager avec vous mes coups de coeur de ce mois et qui peut-être deviendront plus tard des pièces incontournables dans ma garde-robe!:) C'est vrai que j'aime changer de style vestimentaire et de look régulièrement comme toute fashionista, car je pense qu'il y'a beaucoup à découvrir et à explorer dans la mode et beauté et que ce serait dommage de ne porter qu'un seul type de vêtement ou look. 
Ce qui m'amène à écrire cet article et à montrer comment les créateurs Africains ont su utiliser leurs talents et créativité pour démocratiser le wax, bogolan, bazin, kentés, calicots, batiks ( tissus en imprimés africains).

A l'époque, les tissus africains étaient utilisés uniquement pour faire des boubous et foulards qui étaient portés lors des mariages traditionnels, des deuils, pour une petite sortie avec la famille ou tout juste pour rester à la maison. Jusqu'à mes 20 ans, je n'en étais pas une grande fan! Quoique Africaine moi-même, je ne trouvais pas les créations terribles et stylées! J'en portais uniquement lorsqu'on avait une cérémonie dans la famille et après je m'en débarrassais. Je m'habillais beaucoup plus de manière occidentale...




Aujourd'hui je suis heureuse de voir que les choses ont pour le mieux evoluer et que les stylistes Africains ont compris que pour pouvoir compétir à l'échelle internationale, il fallait savoir concilier les cultures africaine et occidentale afin de pouvoir satisfaire une clientèle variée. Ces stylistes offrent toutes catégories de tenues, streetstyle, prêt-à-porter, haute couture et certains font aussi dans la décoration d'intérieur, une autre de mes passions.:)

J'adore ces nouvelles créations ethno chic, modernes, sophistiquées,glamour et colorées! Je retrouve beaucoup plus mes styles vestimentaires et ma personnalité dans ces looks. Aujourd'hui j'apprécie mieux les tissus et accéssoires africains et j'ai hâte de commander quelques pièces de ces talentueux stylistes et d'embellir un peu plus ma garde-robe!

N'hésitez pas vous aussi à aller faire un tour sur leurs sites si vous êtes une fashion addict comme moi et qui sait, peut-être trouverez vous aussi votre bonheur!;)

Ici, je porte un foulard/turban en tissu pagne et imprimés africains. C'est juste une façon un peu plus moderne et chic de porter son foulard traditionnel, et avec les accéssoires et couleurs qui vont avec, c'est juste top!

Ghetto Chic Street Style


Hello fashionistas,

It has been a while since I last posted on my blog but I have been busy. It's good to be back with great things on the horizon!Thank you to all my readers and followers to share this exciting journey with me.

Today I decided to share with you this outfit I wore the other day. It was raining in the morning but luckily for us by midday the rain stopped and the sun finally came out. Spring is the season where Paris seems to reawaken with its avenues fringed with new green shoots and its trees in flower. The days are getting longer, people venture out and about in the parks and gardens and along the Seine River Banks cycling, skating and enjoying the sun from cafes terraces. Of course I had to take a few shots of this beautiful day and share my new gettho chic style with you.




It's no secret that I like experimenting with new styles and I decided that day to pair one of my favorite Zebra faux-fur coat with a black T-shirt, ripped white skinny jeans and knee-high boots. I completed this look with big sunglasses, jewelry and a Hobo bag. Some people think that when you wear some ghetto outfits like ripped jeans (they are trendy now by the way...) and other flashy things, it means that you have bad taste. Not at all, you can wear this style and still look classy and rock it. It's easy to recreate street style ensembles and it all depends how well you match your outfits with the accessories, makeup and hairstyle you are wearing... If you want to try some different and bold looks, why not start with this look and see how you feel later? If you need advices, let me know.











Are you a fan of this style? Tell me below.

MY FAVORITE SPRING/SUMMER 2016 HEELS

Hello Fashionistas!

Can you smell Spring as much as I do? Though it has been raining a bit the last few days, it's not as cold and chilly as it was before and I love it! I'm usually a cold-blooded person and I just couldn't wait for Spring and soon Summer. What I like about these seasons is that you can enjoy flowers blooming with beautiful colors, you are in a good mood most of the time, you can wear light clothes unlikely in winter, you can do some outdoor activities, and you feel energized, you see what I mean? With a new season come new trends and styles. So I chose my favorite sandals and pumps for this Spring and Summer. Not the craziest ones some designers are coming up with. I know people don't have the same taste and style in fashion but come on, don't you sometimes wonder if people actually wear those shoes in real life except on runways? Anyways, people are free to wear whichever shoes they want but you'll never see me wearing these shoes here.




I know what is good for me and I would never recommend any shoes to anyone that I wouldn't wear myself. I just like when shoes are aesthetically appealing, functional and most importantly comfortable. So here are my favorite Spring/Summer heels trends I picked and I hope you like them as well. 















Let me know what you think and let's inspire each other.

Bye for now.

OH YEAH, IT'S FRIDAY AND TIME TO RELAX!



Friday is finally here and so is another week-end! It's time to relax and spend quality time with the people you love. Are you excited? Well, I am and happier as I just received my new goodies from Sephora.


         


I love the sensual,audacious and floral-fruity scent of Balmain Extatic Eau de Parfum. I knew I wouldn't be
disappointed as I am a Balmain's fan. Extatic smells so good, it's not heavy and it's addictive trust me. You want to feel good? Then look good and as you know you are never fully dressed without perfume.







Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture N01 made me feel the same! Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks are well-known for their quality, classy and glamorous appearance.  I love red lipsticks as this color is unique, strong, bold and sexy. So YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick goes on smooth and stays on almost all the day. It's paraben free, very moisturizing, great pigmentation. It looks nice on my skin. I'm already excited about my next purchase! Whohoo...!









Happy Week-end y'all and keep rocking!

DUMEBI COUTURE & COCKTAIL


I was invited by Barbara Biosah to attend her event that took place at her studio in Paris. She's a British fashion designer specialising in unconventional detailed exotic clothing, shoes and accessories hand made. When my friends and I arrived we were immediately charmed by the friendly and cosy atmosphere of the fashionable studio. Barbara welcomed us, she was wearing an elegant and sexy dress from Paint The Lily Couture 16/17 collection featuring  hand embroidered  crystals from Swarovski. After treating ourselves to some nice cocktails, appetizers and snacks she showed us her designs.





  



Her goal is "to eliminate the use of mass production and bring back quality custom made clothing using the finest natural materials and amazing construction that are both artistic and wearable".

Have a look at her collections and enjoy shopping!

The Best Tights: Wolford

I finally found tights that feel and fit great! Really I was so tired to buy stockings tights that didn't last long as they were torn after wearing them a couple of weeks. I felt like those brands did it un purpose so that their customers would go back again to the stores and buy some more. My friends had the same issue and after doing some research I finally found Wolford! It's an Austrian based company that produces luxury  and quality stockings for women and men from pure silk and rayon, underwear for women, women's clothing and accessories.




                                                                           
                                                                            Wolford





So I went ahead and bought the Polkadot tights and Image string body. They look, feel great, they are chic and elegant and most importantly they are durable. They are pricier than most of other brands on the market but the money you spend is well worth it believe me when you consider how long you'll be able to enjoy them. The material feels silky and luxurious with an even opacity and a smooth finish that resists snags and pulls. You just have to try it for yourself!

Below are my favourite items from Wolford that I picked for you and I hope you like them. If you know another brand that you have tried and trust, don't hesitate to share your experience with us.
