The New Year's Eve Edit-Parisian 2018

I think every woman should have at least one statement blouse in their wardrobe. It’s the quickest way to add glamour in your life. Time goes by rather fast! It seems like yesterday; Christmas songs were blasting in shops & massive crowds pounded the pavements. Trying so desperately to find the perfect gift. I love this festive season, now comes the new year.

If you haven’t thought about what kind of outfit to wear to ring in 2018, then I recommend you take note of my New Year’s Eve glamour mood. I have been a big fan of statement blouses, and this month black and white with bold sleeves is the perfect way to celebrate in 2018.

Walk on the wild side this season, with a bold soft black fur coat bringing unpredictable style to this moments strong and feminine line up. This coat is forever fabulous, while versatility sings a beautiful tune while getting a dose of luxe from day to night. If you are like me and prefer coordinates over dresses, then you know the perfect pair of leather trousers become conversation starters in decadent elegance. It’s a party in the city, so dress accordingly.

 Looking back on 2017, it was the year for bold prints, eccentric hues and unbelievable style. For the new year comes classics with a twist. I love the big sleeve when done tasteful, paired with a print you can wear with anything you own. It helps when you find an evergreen item you know can work all season long.

I feel this way even about handbags and shoes. It is a lot of fun to experiment with your clothes and see what trends can really influence you. When it comes down to what practically everyone suits, it is most defiantly the classics.

Of course, there are plenty of other reasons to love this season. Spending Christmas & New Year’s in France is great therapy. For me, I have been enjoying the magic of Christmas in my favourite Parisian city. I do recommend you book a holiday here. Whether it is for New Year’s or just a spur of the moment trip, you will not regret it. Have you ever been so calm and collected? This is how Paris will make you feel.

My New Year’s Resolution? To not change a thing and keep living life to the fullest. 

How was your Christmas? Do you have any New Year’s plans? 

To everyone, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year & all the best for 2018!

Old World Charm & Classic Elegance

When it comes to design, settling for less just isn’t an option. No longer are people asking for walk in wardrobes but instead, Dream Dressing Rooms. This chic concept is so hot on the menu it is burning up the internet. Women everywhere are saving inspirational photos from their Pinterest accounts. Who wouldn’t do that right? We all enjoy a beautiful photo now and then. And when it comes to design, why not be your own interior designer.

Great taste comes from your natural soul. If you can put an amazing outfit together, then you defiantly know a thing or two about design. Making a dream room a reality is like picking the perfect dream handbag. It is all in the details and showcasing your own personal style.

It’s every fashion lover’s dream to have a unique functioning area to store all your lovely shoes, clothes, handbags, and accessories. So, how do you accomplish this task? Not everyone needs to hire a consultant to go over what you want or don’t want. When it comes right down to it, want shouldn’t even be a word that is used in this situation. You should desire a concept that tells a story and shares some unusual personality traits, that no one ever knew about you before.

By selecting different upgrades and special features that work within your concept, this will give you that fantastic look you have always dreamed of. Dreams are not just fairy tales told when you were very young. You can make them an instant reality and create something unbelievably charming.

Most importantly, I love something that tells a story. Speaks its mind without having to say a word. An antique wardrobe is that elegant item everyone needs to make your dream room extra special. The more beat up it looks, the more character it possesses. This Addison wardrobe by Arhaus is handcrafted to perfection, with wood working techniques to give your space that added worldly charm.

Instead of sticking with traditional accents, fill the environment with a bold statement. Mix elegance with vintage to create a really powerful room! Every fashionista needs a sofa for a cosy feel while one gets ready to meet the day. Let’s face it, no matter how busy we get none of us are really morning people. Trying to get our eyes used to the sunlight coming through our windows. Hoping we can wake up just in time for that delicious cup of hot tea. It helps to have a comfy place to sit while gazing at your gorgeous clothes. Being inspired by Italian antiques is a bonus. This beautiful sofa is made for the modern woman who happens to enjoy some luxe in her life.

Lighting up your life doesn’t just have to come from the sun peeking through, a timeless elegant light fixture is the answer. Crafted with a classically styled silhouette, this antique gold table lamp remixes what it means to be fashion forward. Being functional with a solid marble base adds a Parisian attitude while being politely gorgeous. Arhaus has some drop dead gorgeous light fixtures, that will truly light up your dream dressing room with ease. 

How do you keep those hot shoes organized while you are trying on the perfect outfit of the day? Introduce a piece of rustic charm to those beautiful stilettos. Combine French details with an old soul and you have the perfect one of a kind cabinet to keep your magazines stacked and your shoes satisfied. The Chorus Theory collection is designed for that purpose.

You are still getting ready? Sometimes waking up early can take time. Time that is well spent I might add. While you are checking yourself in that mirror doing a “head check” to make sure that hair is on point, you need a place to sit and enjoy the ambiance. A soft leather chair is just the ticket to really add both a modern touch with a retro feel. This old-world artistry leather whiskey chair makes your life so much easier.

 I love how *Arhaus* has so many unusual furnishings to make your dream room that much more belle.

How would you design your own dream room?

City Style: A Velvet Touch

When we first think of velvet, it comes across as a dressy alterative to other fabrics. Put velvet in the category of a casual affair and it doesn’t seem to make much sense. The fabric is very soft with a luxe appeal, that isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

With the season’s changing comes a big splurge of velvet peaking its head through, boots, scarfs, dresses, jackets, and even blouses. The feel of this fabric is undeniable and super chic. Designers like, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Michael Kors, and Gucci, are showcasing velvet with a rich complex for Autumn. Crushed stylish velvet pieces flooded our minds with an addictive appeal.

It also has longevity and is worth investing in, but does this mean you have to give all your money away on a high-end piece? Defiantly, no! The easiest way to introduce a bit of the fabric into your wardrobe without looking like a 1920’s countess, is by making the fabric wearable. No matter where you live or travel to around the globe, it is important to find a versatile item you can wear in any climate condition. This is wear introducing a velvet top into your life this fall is worth the excuse to go shopping.

Advantages To Velvet 

There are a number of advantages to wearing a velvet blouse-it looks appealing, it can be perfect for a cocktail hour, or special nigh time event. It keeps you warm and can be very comfortable when wearing for hours. No itchy material what so ever, so no needed to change tops if you are almost late for your morning meeting. Work aside, the best thing about this blouse is you can always rock it casual.

When I spotted this top, I feel in love with it immediately. To my surprise, most of the other colours were left in the dust. No one wanted them and everyone seemed to be buying the emerald green velvet blouse instead. As I tried on this colour I could see what the hype was all about. When wearing this with a pair of skinny jeans, and shiny liquid silver kitten heel boots, I felt like there was an edgy dressy vibe that could work truly casual, while going on an adventure in the city.

  2. Levis Mile High Super Skinny Jeans

  4. Silver Ankle Boots (Similar) 

Best part about rocking a fun look like this? Getting a billion complements on my style. I said thank you so many times, I thought my head was going to spin. This was when I realised I deserved a nice coffee break to warm the soul.

I love how velvet can have such a wide appeal globally and for these extra cooler months why not take this look with adding your own personal favourite layers. A coat or leather jacket can take this outfit to even more incredible lengths.
