5 things I want right now for a black on black look

5 things I want right now!

It has been a pretty gloomy week on various levels so let’s lighten up things with a bit of fashion and it’s fridYEAH after all… I really love this all black look I posted on Instagram, and it’s pretty much my go-to outfit at the moment. It’s fashionable, comfy, easy to pull together with a hint of fashion. I usually pair it with an oversized coat and if the weather gets warmer, swap my black jumper for a white tee-shirt. Voilà, job done!

5 things you want right now: chinos

5 things you want right now!

I recently asked Steve to bring me back a couple of chinos (4) from GAP and Boden I had in my wardrobe in London. I hadn’t worn them for a while yet and kind of forgot about them until Elodie mentionned she wanted to throw her yellow ones and I talked her out of it.

5 Things I want right now! this Popeline blouse & Chloé bag

5 things I want right now!

My friends and I were discussing Chloé bag over the weekend…. One of them was obsessed with the Faye bag. You may have seen the brown version on Lucy Williams’ arm from Fashion me Now. It’s a nice Chloé bag, but personally, I prefer the more boho versions like the Marcie shoulder bag, the Hudson bag with its swishy tassel or even better the Marcie tote (featured above). Since I’m off to Barcelona next week for two days for the launch of a printing product which is going to be very interesting for interior designers and creative people like you, this week’s look is about looking stylish and fashionably sexy in town. So here are the few things I’m obsessed with this week. I’m totally in love with this ruffle poplin blouse (2) I spotted on Happily Grey. The blouse is available at Nordstrom and would look fantastic with these boyfriend jeans or these slim-fit biker trousers. I also love this tie-neck blouse from Mango which is more affordable, different style but it looks great too. This winter coat (1) caught my eyes too but if it’s out of your budget, check out this one under …

5 Things You Want Right Now for Paris Fashion Week

5 things I want right now!

For those who don’t follow me on Instagram, I’m in Paris this weekend (see hashtag #bodieandfoutravelsparis). Yesterday, I went to meet my photography hero: Peter Lindbergh who kindly signed his new book for me (see Instagram stories), and afterwards I went to a party organised by Milk magazine at La Trésorerie (very nice shop in the 10th arrondissement).

The inspiration for this photoshoot was this photo, which has nothing to do with the result but that’s how inspiration works. A theme, a colour, a person can trigger a whole set of emotions and take your imagination to places it has never been. When I sent the photo to Perrine, she told me she looked nothing like the girl on the photo but she trusted me. We shot at Le Blockhaus. The place was packed and yet it looks like we were the only two people at the bottom of the Dune of Pyla, facing the bay…Photography & Styling: Karine Candice Köng Model: Perrine Fifadji Singer, Dancer & Choregrapher, Perrine will start giving singing lessons in Bordeaux from October 2016.

A few months ago, I went to a press day to discover the collections of a few European labels and I fell in love with Danish brand Cecilie Copenhagen. Do you know of it?

5 must-haves to go back to work while looking cool

5 things I want right now!

I had a real hard time last week packing for Paris. After spending the Summer holidays in t-shirt and denim short, I felt less than inspired to put some proper clothes back on. Sounds familiar!? If you’re in the same boat, here is a look I really like to ease back into working life. Hope you like it! 1/ If you love the “No Soy Perfecta” t-shirt I posted in my recent Look of the Day, I finally found the link here. I also like the writing and message on this t-shirt from Mango although sometimes I wonder if their in-house Designers get only their inspiration from Pinterest. 2/ If you’re looking to get a new leather jacket, I’m very fond of this biker jacket from Mango 3/I would accessorise the whole look with this tasseled shoulder bag from See by Chloé 4/I spotted this Veja baskets in Paris last week after we had lunch at Le Marché des Enfants Rouges which I recommend if you’re off to Paris 5/ Last but not least, this leather pencil skirt from Hush. Each year, Hush …
