One of my favorite looks from Paris Fashion Week, and also one of the most casual ones I’ve ever worn to a fashion show. Though I never made it to the actual show I was going to that morning… After being stuck in Paris traffic for way too long, I arrived at Jardin de Tuileries, making my way to the show entrance, CLOSED. Well, you know, things happen, no biggie. Such a shame though to go all the way and then not being able to sneak in last-minute… But anyway, it’s Easter Weekend, and it’s “warm” in New York! It excites me so much that we’re finally facing Spring, and the city slowly changes from sleepy into bustling and happy. You really see the difference, people are out on the streets, having dinner outside – I’m not kidding, yesterday every restaurant had people dining outside!
It seems like I’m all about showing you in how many ways you can wear a denim jacket and double denim… But in reality it’s just coincidence, because the outfits were all shot at different times over the past month. Though it is a nice continuation, because fact is, this denim jacket is one of my favorites at the moment. I literally wear it with anything, but preferably with other denim pieces. So, here’s the deal, I’m giving you a great selection of denim jackets and double denim combinations – with a little splash of color – at the end of this post so you can continue the denim story with me!
On a sunny afternoon in Paris, just after the incredible Chloe FW15 show at Grand Palais, in this awesome denim look by See by Chloe. I’m still with my head in Paris, and really looking back at an amazing time. The shows were so mind-blowing – apart from the fact I’ve been to so many shows that were on my wish list, and I could now finally see with my own eyes. This, and the great images I always get as a souvenir, make being away from the kids totally worth it. I missed them like crazy of course, but being a working mommy makes me a good mommy. Fact.
One of the most beautiful moments during Paris Fashion Week was my fitting at the Maison Valentino Headquarters. It was a dream coming true, and that moment I walked into this beautiful room filled with all the Valentino pieces I’ve ever dreamed off was insane. Obviously there were too many options, and it felt quite overwhelming… “where do I start?” crossed my mind a hundred times, at least! I decided to start with choosing a color and take it from there…
Or shall I say “odd shades” because – so it seems on my instagram – you find it rather hard to “appreciate” them. I understand where you’re coming from, because they are quite odd at first, and definitely not suitable for everyone – and I’m not saying they are with me – but I simply love them because of that. They are so unusual that they quickly became my favorite pair, and still are. Wearing my hair like this makes perhaps make it even a more obvious “hard shape” to pull off, I realized that whenever I wore my hair blow-dried down it was a much bigger success in your eyes. But no matter what’s the case, let us agree on disagreeing, and embrace the fact that fashion allows us to be our true selves. Paris… I miss you big time, can’t wait for next season!
