Once upon a Fashion Week, a young woman spent the day with the loveliest Chanel US team; they went to see the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show, they had brunch in one of those cute little French restaurants only a local would know about, and shopped the most beautiful flowers she had ever seen… Finishing the day with getting ready for the launch party of the newest Chanel fragrance… Go in and scroll down to see the whole story!
Searching Pinterest – my favorite place to get fashion inspiration from other time periods – I somehow found myself going from one 70s look to the other. As you know, I love to channel some 60s/70s inspired looks so I this was the perfect opportunity to break down a 70s look and find out what the key styles of this time period actually are, and recreate the perfect 70s inspired summer look!
Can we please talk for a little bit about the insane details of the Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2017 show? I mean, the collection was as always beautiful, but the eye makeup made me really drool. The eye as a pallet of color, as if a Monet splashed onto their faces and of they went… Or birds of paradise that swapped their natural habitat for the Parisian gardens around the Eiffel Tower. Because that too, the fact that Karl brought the Eiffel Tower to the Grand Palais, was just beyond. Not that I expected anything else of course after the rocket that was launched during the last RTW show. Karl knows how to leave us all stunned.
Before I jump back into the show reviews and that post that BIG shoot I did during the most recent Paris Haute Couture week, I wanted to share all my looks from that week with you. I’ve never done a “Fashion Week outfit recap” before, because I prefer to give every single look I wear during Fashion Week the attention it deserves: by dedicating one full blog post around it. However, it happened to not work out the way I envisioned it… And basically what happened is that over the past YEAR – argh shame on me – I’ve created a huge folder on my computer with way too many looks, from way too many different Fashion Weeks, that are still “waiting to get posted”. Now is having a lot of content as a back-up not really a problem you would think, yet the problem is though, the content – meaning the looks – are not all completely relevant anymore… Some are too trend sensitive, some are too wintery – and we’re in summer now – and some are basically too special to get posted on a regular Monday, so to speak. Sh*t, so what am I going to do with all those beautiful images I have still left??? On the other hand, it is my job to create relevant content for you, no matter what time of the year, what looks, or what topic. So I see it as a fun challenge – which I love to take on – to MAKE IT WORK anyway! For now, something you will find more often in the future: A recap of my Fashion Week looks!
Take your oldest pair of jeans – like I did with the flared MIH Jeans I’m wearing in today’s post – and combine it with your latest purchase: this Rosie Assoulin top. Voila, a fresh new look you probably never thought off, simply created with a piece from your wardrobe you most likely forgot about – yes, you will have to dig in that closet of yours to find what you will need, but it will be worth it!
