The Best Festive Scarf Knots !

Bonjour scarf lovers!

I love looking at new ideas for knotting my scarves, it’s so incredible how you can achieve so many cool looks with one accessory! I like the idea of a beautiful hairstyle covered up with a headscarf like on the 2nd and 4th photos, as if you were protecting it and only showing half of it, also that way you work two looks in the same day.

Big bows are always cool, they just make an outfit stand out! Bows are great great as a headscarves, but also tied around the neck with or without a shirt collar.

I love the Dolce & Gabanna dress on the last row too, there might be a bit more than just knots though.. Definitely worth a try!

But I think this one below will have to be my favourite look this year, it’s so simple but so effective! It’s just a square scarf folded in half and tied around the head as to make a turban, and with some beautiful flowers clipped at the top.

Voila!

Simple and fresh, and it looks so pretty, the pomegranates floating like little rubies.

This is perfect for a sophisticated oriental taste, saffron is a very subtle taste, but oh so delicious!

Lavender Passion Fruit Vodka Lemonade

I am a big lavender fan, usually more for it smells than its flavour, but I really loved how it works with the passion fruit here, delish!!

Kumquat & Passion Fruit Cocktail by Nopi

Kirsty's Christmas Wishlist!

Hello,

We’ve asked Kirsty - from the great blog Fashion For Lunch - what she’s got planned for Christmas this year! And here it is, she shares with us a few of her gift ideas and favourite festive treats!

Bonjour Kirsty!

What gets you in the mood for Christmas?

If there's one thing that gets me in the mood for Christmas, it's watching Christmas films! The festive season officially starts when I hear the opening music for Home Alone and all those good vibes intensify as I work my way through Elf, Home Alone 2, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. I also love to watch the re-runs of old Friends Christmas-themed episodes! 

Also this year will be the first year that we will be able to get a fresh christmas tree, so I'm super excited about vacuuming up the dropped pine needles every days! I'm also thinking about getting a garland to hang down the staircase and a wreath for the door! I love decorating and Christmas is pretty much the best excuse to go to town!

What do you have on your Christmas wish list?

As for christmas wish list, well, I would LOVE to get some new pyjamas, I love the matching sets they do at Boden, I’ve had some before, they are so comfortable and such lovely quality! I’d also love to get some new slippers, a super cosy pair to keep my feet warm all winter, just like these ones here! Oh and maybe just because it is my favourite brand after all (as all my readers know), I would quite like to own one of the new Chanel sunglasses with the mother of pearl frames, they are very pretty!!

What are you planning to get your loved ones?

I will be wrapping up some bones for the dog (we just got an adorable Labrador called Gordon a few months ago), maybe a new dog lead and wellington boots for my partner and for my parents.

I also usually give them fragrances, and beauty products because I like to give them something that they can enjoy using all year long! I’ve really liked the Lime Basil and Mandarin Body&Hair oil by Jo Malone this year, and the Bobbi brown range of matt lipsticks, released this year too. Oh and one last thing: The Nap Spray! This is amazing, and literally everyone in my family is getting one this year, I’m a fan of short efficient afternoon naps, it’s crazy how 10 minutes really help with being creative and productive, you have to try!!

One last question, what will you be wearing to celebrate? 

When I finally leave the house, after celebrating and hibernating for a few days, I'll be wearing sequins and velvet from dawn till dusk! I’ve tried a few really nice dresses from Simply Be, and this one on the picture below is my favourite one, I’ll wear it with matching sequin boots, of course!

Style Edit - Party Time!

Bonjour Fashion lovers <3

Who better than Elton John, Diana Ross and Cher to inspire this year’s party looks?! I am a big fan of 1960s/70s fashion, and to me these 3 are so iconic, glamorous and super fun. They have amazing outfits on all photos of them at the time, it just makes you dream of going back in time for a night to have the party of a lifetime!

Anyway, this is what I’d wear, I love the gold metallic dress by &Other Stories, and I think it’d look great teamed with the cutest of our mini animal scarf, the mini red cat! Not to mention the very pretty black patent mules by Miista, the metallic red lipstick by Limecrime and the black and red bag by Mansur Gavriel!

Enjoy your Christmas parties fashionistas xx

Style Edit : Cocktails with friends!

Bonjour!

Party season is finally upon us, and oh my! I am excited!! Here’s a bit of a chic but comfy look for an evening out with my girlfriends, featuring no other than our Dalmatian Wrap-up top.

I love this top so much, the silk satin is soft and lush, and the cut is super glamorous. I love how it ties around the waist too, it’s very chic but has also a bit of casual edge to it. I love wearing it with wide high waisted trousers.

Let the festivities begin mes amis!!
