Dior spring - summer 2012

All pictures are from Vogue.fr

Paris fashion week finally started with my favorite brand. 
Dior design is always a perfect match of colors but it's classy at the same time. Shapes are so perfect and clothes seem to be so comfortable with a lot of silk and muslin... The red dresses are just to die for. Dior used my favorite tone of red which is like poppy red, I can't get enough of this color in my wardrobe. I also loved the transparent shirts worn under the jackets. I saw that Jason Wu did the same in his fashion show. And I loved the nudes tones. Moreover my favorite models were walking the runway like Frida, Marina, Magdalena, Anna Selezneva, Jak ...


Mémoires de la mode, Chanel

Recently, I saw a documentary film called « Signé Chanel » by Loic Prigent. It was truly amazing to see all the work that Haute Couture involves. From drawings to the fashion show, this movie shows all the design of the collection including the big rush the day just before the show during which the team works on dresses all night long. It’s also a true portrait of Karl Lagerfeld who seems to be so nice and seems to really pay attention to the dressmakers.
It makes me want to know more about Chanel and its story. That’s why I bought this book. I read it so fast, it’s such a beautiful and great book. The pictures from past and present creations are truly gorgeous and they’re well explained. There is also a short history of the brand, that’s always a good point.
I notice this book also exists for other brands like Lanvin, Cacharel, Dior and even Yves Saint Laurent. I can’t wait to purchase them too ! You really should take a look at the movie and the book, they’re so fascinating !

The law university hasn't started yet so I have time to think about the next year. Sometimes I'm wondering what I should take with me in Paris or what I should leave behind.

I would like to be sure I will be as enthusiastic when I will be there as I am right now. I hope, once I am there that I will never forget how lucky I am and how I worked hard to achieve this dream.
I would like to left behind people who broke my heart, who make me want to move and little quarrels.
I want a new start and I guess I need it.

Talking about more concrete things, I know I will have a very little space and that's going to be hard to chose what to pack or not. The most delicate dilemma will be books and clothes for sure ! When I pack my suitcases to go on holidays only for a week or two I always want to bring everything ! How am I going to do, if it’s for at least 2 years ?? Hard choices to come :) :) 

Maybe I will have to leave behind this cute pink Candy Bag by Furla...



Paris, Jardin des Tuileries*. All rights reserved.
Since I discovered Paris, I decided I want to live in this city. It’s difficult to explain how well I feel there and how much I feel like home when I take a walk in its tiny and old streets.
But how to do when you live in the middle of France, when you still study, don’t have a work and when you realize how much the rents are outrageous?
What was only a thought at the beginning now became an obsession and I have to find a solution!
If everything is going all right, in one year, I will pack my suitcases to go to the city of lovers and I hope I will never have to go back. I hope I will be lucky enough to be accepted in a good university in Paris to finish my studies and become a notary public.
*I took this picture some years ago in the "Jardin des Tuileries". Every time I go back to this place, I take exactly the same picture while it's a different season. I just need to take this picture in winter, under the snow to complete my collection.
