It’s not very common to see me wearing bright colours. I think that I’ve already done enough a few years ago so now I try to temper these momentum.

But sometimes, a touch of color doesn’t hurt anyone, especially when it’s a velvet sweatshirt with a vintage look. I was wearing this kind of sweatshirt quite often when I was young (especially as pajamas!).

Now, it turned out being quite useful to enhance a grey suit along with a grey scenery and grey weather ! (English translation by Quiterie)

Etsy fashion

· Fashion

Recently, Etsy asked me to select my favorite “fashion” items on their website. I must admit I’m more used to ordering deco elements, but I was curious, and set out on my quest for unique fashion items.

As you know, Etsy is all about worldwide creators : every style is represented. And that’s the thing, the options are so vast you hardly know where to begin. But as I visited the website and saved my favorite items, Etsy selected shops for me that corresponded to my tastes perfectly.

It made my task much easier, and I found my one-of-a-kind items : here they are! (…and so you can have a bit of fun too, you’ll find a giveaway at the end of this post!)

 

Kamomeya

Pipio vintage japanese dress Kamomeya

This is paradise for Japanese vintage dresses! Japanese are often quite tiny, so there’s an impressive selection of XS and XXS sizes, but I was so happy when I found this flowered japanese dress in my size!

I’ll probably wear it this winter too, with tights, boots and a perfecto jacket, for a more grunge/rock 90s look.

 

Nouswe

Vintage basket NousWe

I had been looking around for a reasonably sized basket. This vintage shop with a lot of natural deco and tableware made my dreams come true. I wore it non stop at the end of this summer (to go give Colin a hug for example).

As I’m writing this, my pick is only available in large : if you’re interested!

 

Uhlalaland

Top Capri Uhlalaland

I love this portugese shop for tailor-made clothes! No more sizing issues, and a great selection of minimalist and rustly creations for a great price, considering it’s all hand-made.

I got this off-the-shoulder top and this shirt-dress that I will probably be wearing as a tunic on slim-fit jeans.

 

Guyguyguy Shop

Eyelashes enamel pins GuyGuyGuyShop
Shirt-dress Uhlalaland

Fashion means accessories: This lashes-pins will be a great detail for my shirt-collars, giving them just the right amount of fun.

 

Vestiaire des hommes

Vintage bag Vestiaire des Hommes

You must have seen this bag a couple times now. I’m really happy about it (I also found this striped tshirt you see below).

I think I’ll be keeping an eye out for this Montreal-based shop, because it regularly restocks and offers 80/90s “tomboy-style” vintage clothes and accessories. Everything I love!

 

MadHatterPlushies

Vintage striped shirt  Vestiaire des Hommes
Patch MadHatterPlushies

I was hysterical when I discovered the insane amount of Sailor Moon related creations you can find on Etsy. Of course, some are more “polished” than other, but when I found this Luna patch, I immediately wanted to customize my canadian tshirt with it.

I wanted to make it less classical, kind of like a “Comme des Garçons” tshirt, but with a “lunar” touch that makes the whole difference.

 

OffOn

Checked blouse OffOn

A lituanian shop that makes dresses and clothes to order. I chose this checkered blouse, that I think I’ll wear open, like a light fall jacket.

 

Minetta Jewellery

Customizable necklace Minetta Jewellery

I was looking for a customized gift for my friend Candice’s birthday.

I found this delicate and customizable jewellery shop. I didn’t have to think too long about what inscription I wanted to have engraved, and so I ordered two necklaces : one for my “Babe” and one for me!

 

Olive Thomas Shoes

Flats Olive Thomas

Once again, something tailor-made, for shoes this time! I opted for this simple ballerina pair, with the detail that makes it special … and this red leather!

 

Giveaway : 4 x 100€ giftcards

So that you may also treat yourself on Etsy, I was given the opportunity to give away 4 giftcards of 100€ each, to spend on the website.

To enter, leave a comment below before midnight on Sunday September 25th (Paris time) (it is possible that your comment won’t appear immediately, because I will be out and about the next couple days: don’t panic, I’ll make sure to validate all the comments on sunday at the latest).

4 lucky people will be selected randomly (This is an international giveaway). Good luck to all! (English translation by Marine)

A minimalist bag

· Fashion

Lately it’s all about Scandinavian minimalism when we surf on the blogs.

On my side, even if my looks are ways sober than before (it’s not very difficult !) I need outfits with patterns or texture variations to not get bored.

This being said, it’s been a while since I spotted the bucket bag from Mansur Gavriel, a bag just in simplicity. It seems made in a pretty good quality (it’d better be knowing its price) but I’ve never made the final step.

As I was checking La Redoute website to prepare my monthly selection, I noticed this ersatz in imitation leather (or “vegan leather” if we want to sound environment savy) which has a visual rendering quite qualitative.

Indeed its leather doesn’t look cheap and it will allow me to carry it without worrying even during rainy days (positive side of fake leather!). I will keep you updated about its time durability, but as for now, it made me forget about the original one. (English translation by Quiterie)

Art in the city

· Fashion

I like wearing my clothes multiple times (we have this tendency to forget as we usually present newbies on our ‘Fashion Blog’) and especially to wear them in a different style.

Do you recognise my lace dress I was wearing during the very fancy Prix de Diane?

Today, it’s a way less elegant but that’s why it’s fun: I paired it with accessories a bit more rock and casual. I know it is not the most flattering and feminine way to wear it but it allows to change and be more confortable to wander around the city. (English translation by Quiterie)
