Once upon a time




















Not only fairytales are for children but it's true that they also have been a longtime source of inspiration for many artists. Alena Akhmadullina, a Russian-born designer, managed to recreate the fantasy of one of the most popular Russian folktale by bringing to life its underwater world through her newest resort collection. Feminine yet using all kinds of material, she literally carves out of her garments beautiful ocean waves stitched in rough denim, koi carps and crashing curls on chiffon and sea foam formed by fur details in a way that reminds us of the famous Japanese painter Hokusai's signature paintings. Whereas my closet clearly lacks of color, I'd love to wear those gorgeous pieces. It's subtle, delicate and oh so chic !

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY








You know how old movies used to be in black and white ? Well, I think I would have been great in one of them because it seems like I can't wear anything else than black, white or grey clothes. Grey particularly have been one of my favorite color since autumn and its cold weather settled in lately.

I am wearing a turtleneck sweater I got from China, and the pants are from Zara

THE SCORCH TRIALS




Reading at home with a hot cup of tea is one of my favorite activities during fall/winter. I'm in that period of the year where I prefer to play the kinda antisocial girl while wearing my old pjs with a pair of fluffy socks, than going out in the cold. To be honest, I need to find new books to read and more importantly more time to do it. Talking about books, I don't know if you are into those dystopia trilogies such as The Hunger Games, the Divergent series but I read The Maze Runner one too and recently I went to see the movie based on the second book. For those who haven't seen it yet, I won't spoil it but you really need to go see it and asap ! But whatever, what I wanted to tell you is whereas I only need comfy pjs at home, I'm the kind of girl that still struggles to find a nice outfit when I go to  the theater which is completely stupid since we all are in the dark and that nobody actually cares about what I'm wearing. That's exactly what happened last time as I went to watch The Scorch Trials with Chloé from Crackeryourstyle. Of course, for the fresh halls of the theater, I had no better idea than choosing a black dress with a pair of white converses and backpack (that's for the books to remind me the story.. ok, i'm out !) in case I was getting hot because of all the action in the movie aha !
