This girl is never not on the hunt for the perfect dress, alongside the other unicorn in my life .. the perfect French onion soup (cue ad-lib trip to Paris anyone?).
Anywho, where the latter may require further searching tbc stay tuned to my friends out there with like-minded quams in the cuisine department, something different can be said for the aforementioned of the two.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Kym Ellery’s masculine/feminine tailoring on high rotation, however this time thanks to MATCHESFASHION.COM something more ladylike has caught my eye.
Ellery Resort 2018 recently bore the fruit of this little number, a dress for the girl who’s checklist consists of sleeves one could only dream of, French cuisine forgiving rushing and the kind of proportions that one looks for when it comes to searching for that life-changing smock.
So maybe I’ll meet you in Paris and we can hunt down the ultimate French onion soup together, and I’ll give you one guess as to what I’ll be wearing when we meet .. x
If you’re not the girl who lives in Paris, you’re most likely me … yep that’s right that girl who imagines that she lives there.
On the weekends I order croissants, when I leave my makeup on at night I like to reason that it’s ok because it’s so very French no? And I can admit with no shame at all that I may own several beret’s even if I can’t successfully pull off donning one on my not-so Frenchie head.
So when it comes to the likes of Celine or hit of Chanel Gabrielle, it’s only fair to stay consistent with the Parisian patriotism right?
And if you don’t mind, I’ll have another croissant and by the way you should join me … xx
Entering a marshmallow-cloud-like tent within a Parisian Tennis Club felt somewhat comforting. And this comfort was further enhanced by wooden benchescovered in Célineprinted sleeping bags. Now that’s what I’m talking about, good ol’ fashioned camping…
But I knew this was going to be a camping experience that I was neither previously accustomed to, nor had encounter before.The bespoke Céline camping experience.
To start the show… a trio of oversized trench coats appeared, setting the tone for what to expect; wearable everyday pieces that fit into everyday life. Khaki suits with big shoulders and side-pleated skirts highlighted the Céline uniform, one that I have become rather attached. Giant envelope leather totes, and softly padded clutches were the beginning of a drool worthy accessory collection.
There was a whole lot of Chic going on under the Céline tent, and if this is what they are calling the new aged camping experience, then definitely count me in
My headmaster once summonsed me to the head office, my friends and I had been requested to attend an award ceremony in regards to our artistic pursuits. Woo hoo, to say that we were excited was an understatement. The headmaster was also impressed with our creative endeavours, however was not overly excited at the fact that outside of school we’d taken to personalising our uniforms with sharpies and not ending the creativity on the canvas. We were neatly dished out detention along with our awards, but it’s needless to say that early on I was given a stern lesson in the importance of the uniform.
These days I have Ms Pheobe Philo to thank for teaching me the value of the quality wardrobe for the modern woman and one that I’m most accustomed too. Large slouchy trousers, a collared shirt, boxy oversized coats, a crisp tailored dress – all preferably in navy or black an on high rotation. There’s no doubt that the Céline uniform will outlast all of the trends that come and go, keeping us out of trouble not only in detention but also in life’s classroom too ladies ..
Celine’s newly establish digital Insta presence has got me egg-stremely excited and becoming a great source of inspiration for the Oracle Fox Journal. And what is just as exciting is the Celine Pre Fall 2017 lookbook. The somewhat tonal colour palette emphasises a new modern aesthetic, and in my opinion is what Mrs Philo is all about.
So hats off to Mrs Phoebe Philo who resist being interpreted for anything other than her clothes and accessories.
Embellished, oversized, cats eye… We all know that when it comes to accessories, too much choice is never a bad thing. Sunglasses have always been a favourite and if you ask me, there’s no better way to add a finishing touch your outfit.
The sun doesn’t have to be shining to seek some shade… If you catch my drift. Here’s some of my current obsessions..x
Last night I promised myself I would actually go to bed, when I went to bed but yet again it didn’t happen. I know that this may sound weird but in a recent conversation while lunching with my team during a shoot that we were producing, there was a serious number of offenders (myself included) who .. when it’s time for bed spend the next 3 hours ‘scroll-axing’. If you think about it, we can happily justify to ourselves that this time could be classified as ..
a) Market research..
b) A savvy way of keeping up with pop culture (and endlessly satisfying list of Donald Trump Meme’s)
c) Just a really really good way to catch up everything that all your favourite accounts are up to in a peaceful environment .. (other than in the bathroom or during your lunch break).
So if you’re reading this is bed right now I’d like to say a special hi, snuggle up and enjoy some stealthly gratifying bedtime scollaxation. And if not, I suggest that you give it a go .. cast the guilt aside and call it a good opportunity for some Cultural Immersion .. at least that’s how we’d like to classify it anyway..
I guess that you could say that I like to look at the world differently, sometimes it’s just a little more obvious than others. Good hardware is one of my all time weaknesses and I’m pretty sure you’ve realised by now I’m not talking about the household kind.
