Make them Glitter

Ladies sometimes it's OK to stand out on the most subtle things. These nails above may seem a bit too shinny and too bold but if you work this style well you will definitely turn heads. When having your nails glitter like this I don't suggest for you to wear a sequence dress or diamond studded costume jewelry. Keep it subtle ladies. Wear a simple all black outfit with less accessories and a simple handbag and heels. No need for extra diamonds to bling your friends eyes out. With nails like these you can hold your wine glass or tuck your hair behind your ear and stop traffic in the most subtle way. Rock out the glitter and diamonds ladies but be simple with the look. You can buy this silver nail polish with diamond studs on

Sometimes its really doesn't matter what you have on as long as the accessories coordinate you will always look hot. You can put on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, as simple as that sounds rocking it out with a scarf, hat, and the appropriate footwear you can turn that outfit into the hottest look of the week. Coordination is key in fashion but it doesn't have to be in the clothes it can be in the accessories. One classic look that's always an attention getter is making sure the footwear matches the purse or hand bag. You can never go wrong with that classic look. You can get any of these items on

It’s a year now that I am blogging for NicNatDirect and some of my friends are still asking about this company I blog for…
Well, their motto is at the left of this blog but to make it easy for you my friend in Paris,yes you…You know this pair of sneakers that is exclusive to the NYC store and that they will not ship to you…Instead of asking me to bring it back on my next trip, go to NicNatDirect and use their service…

Here I am taking you on a little visit of the New York office.
Your boxes are shipped from any websites to the office then they are consolidated and  shipped to you.
We have a lot of boxes at the office in our « green room » and we recycle.

NicNatDirect - Shipping & Shopping Made Simple.

The lovely face behind the voice in the office, Kim is here to assist you with any requests.
Nothing is too small or too big; NicNatDirect has shipped a Wedding band in a small box to a 750 ponds industrial stove with unusual items in between as seeds or art from Malibu to Paris.

Now if only they asked me to go visit the office in Barbados...

I will have that to go...

Spain's athletes don't like Spain's Olympic uniforms, with good reason.

The Olympic uniforms by Russian design firm Bosco were free...                                                                                    Is that a good enough reason to ridicule your athletes ?

The US uniforms are maybe made in China but they are at least chic.Can't wait for Friday and see all of the world selection.

A bientôt,

Comme des Garcons “White drama”

Given carte blanche to exhibit her 33 looks in a rectangular, industrial space, Kawakubo chose to encase her dresses — styled exactly like the runway — in clear plastic bubbles.

The Kawakubo exhibition is a static presentation of the entire Comme des Garcons Spring 2012 show, called White Drama.  The Musee Galliera’s director Olivier Saillard says: “[It] is probably a world first to exhibit a whole collection that is so recent, not a retrospective”.
The show is all about life’s big events : birth, marriage, death and transcendence with ceremonial style gowns in theatrical satins and ritual grandeur and the display at Les Docks will allow visitors to see these recent creations up close and at their own pace rather than in the helter skelter timeframe of a runway.  Kawakubo’s architectural mode is fully expressed in the silky cocoons and white layers of lace budding flowers and more. »

White Drama is whiteness - pure, ceremonial white of every hue; Blossoming flowers, layered handkerchiefs, white-flecked material, lace insets inspired by christening robes, an obi-bow belt, overcoats and tall hats reminiscent of the Holy Week processions in Seville, a wedding gown like the silky cocoon of an insect, opaque and sheer fabrics. White Drama is a masterful fashion architecture that transports the viewer to the unique world of Rei Kawakubo.

The Docks - Cité de la Mode et du Design
34 quai d’Austerlitz, 75013 Paris
Both exhibitions are open from April 13 to October 7 2012
