TRIBUTES - Gucci Pre+RW F/W 2017/18


Week #2 of tribute is here, and so our #2 tribute article ! Gucci is the new shop that has been released and.. gosh this is intense !



Gucci for me is a love-hate fashion house, either you do love it or you deeply hate it. I always loved non sense humor, and let me tell you, if it had to be applied to fashion, that is what non sense would definitely look like. The blend of texture, the mix of patterns and that overall quirkiness is key. As ever, I've made you a little compendium of the new collection from which this release was taken so you can have a better idea of what I meant. I would have love to be able to grab some of these pieces...

From left to right :
that insect pattern, that perfect suit, that flower skirt, that dress and OMG THAT TANK TOP !

From all of those outfits :
any piece of fur, animal embroidered and EVERY SINGLE BAG.

Pre-F/W 17/18


Moving on to the stardoll side, here's what I got from the shop. I fell in love with that sweater but I didn't really liked the girl version they made out of it... and it doesn't fit that bad on my doll so... I also would have loved that dress as only a tank top but you cannot be too picky am I right ? Oh, and that decor...





and here are my outfits !



1. Just a sip of Gucci - Gucci dress as a top.
2. Let me have a cup of Gucci - Gucci sweater.
3. Give me that Gucci jar right away ! - Gucci skirt + shoes.
4. DIVING IN A GUCCI BATH - Gucci glasses + cardigan + skirt + socks + shoes.





That's all !
So, what did you get ?




cheers, M.

TRIBUTES - Fendi Pre+RW F/W 2017/18


Since we caught up talking about Hotbuys, let's move on to this new Tribute season - and this one is there on time in the blog hahaha. Alright, so Stardoll granted us with Fendi as a starter. Let's see what the fuss is all about...



Fendi isn't one of my favorite fashion house. I don't say that it's a bad one, it's just that I'm not 100% bothering about it. Still, I became interested in the house since Loïc Prigent's Le jour d'avant 2010 documentary (available in French and very bad quality on Dailymotion, but since I'm a nice person, here is a part of 2014's one in English on youtube). I really admire their work on leather and fur, and I truly like the fun they put in their accessories' vibe.
I've made a quick research on Vogue and MyTheresa about the collection our release was taken from. I think that they are mainly coming from Pre-Fall/Winter and Ready to Wear Fall/Winter 2017-18. So I made you a little compendium of my favorite runway outfits. Regarding this, there are several things I wish they were included in the release - yes, I'm never satisfied 😆.

From left to right :
that black blazer with cuffs - you know me -, that huge fancy fur, that fun oversized sweater, those high-knee boots in velvet (see next paragraph), that delicate top... 

RW F/W 17/18

From all of those outfits :
those bags, those furs and those coats... dreamy !

Pre-F/W 17/18


Alright, enough with the rambling, here's what I got from the shop. I avoided dresses since I think that they are too complicated to style for me - not impossible but I'm lazy haha. Same with the boots, I would have loved them in their burgundy velvet version... Anyhow, I'm quite happy with my picks. They are quirky and yet so basic-like (I mean, that shirt has the perfect cuff twist). And I would say it every time, but I'm truly thankful that they made the earrings separate - of course it's a little more expensive, but you can really play with them that way.





and here are my outfits !



1. A tribute to Karl, Fendi's half designing master - Fendi scarf.
2. Bad vision doesn't mean bad styling - Fendi sweater + glasses.
3. Are those earrings paired ? is this skirt a short ? we'll never know - Fendi belt + bag + skort.
4. Pompompompompompom - Fendi shirt + sweater + shoes.





That's all !
So, what did you get ?

HOTTEST BUYS OF THE MONTH - July 2017

Still here, did I say last time that it was almost over, but when you saw that last article you're like LIAR ? yes I lied. Yes it's not over yet. Yes I'm a liar. Will you trust me when I say that it is not over yet ? Or won't you since I can't keep promises ? Wait I'm confused now..




Uhw, so breezy and WAIT : straw bags ! I haven't felt that rush to own them since kimonos are back in business. I have so many you can't walk in my room without putting your foot through one. Anyway, that big straw bag is truly perfect. Even if it's huge, I have a dozen of ideas to style this one ! For the thistle one, I'm a little bit less confident. It looks less "natural" but still, I love the idea of having something else than the usual cute flowers.




Here are what I bought :
the silk kimono : I HAVE THIS ONE IRL, best investment ever.
the round straw bag : my sister brought me one from Morocco, still can't figure out how to wear it outside the house.
the thistle straw bag : on a scale of 1 to 10, how cute is that thistle ? 1000.
the cat eye sunglasses : it's Linda again - see June Hotbuys.
the aviator shades : hello, I'm that Netflix murderer documentary guy from the 80's. I wear a mustache.
the tassel earring : no curtain joke pls.
the croco clogs : the only type of shoes that says their name when you walk with them. CLOG CLOG CLOG ok I'm out.



And here are the outfits that I've made with them :




1. Me at work today or "how my boss went ERROR 404 each time we met at the coffee machine" - HB kimono, Gucci earring & Dior shoes.
2. Tattoo mom also likes to make pies AND MILK HER OWN COW - HB shoes, bag, sunglasses + earring & Saint Laurent necklace + shorts.
3. Size matters - HB bag + sunglasses, Vera Wang dress, Chanel cape, Jean-Paul Gaultier & PPQ hat, Birkenstocks.






That's all !
So, what did you get ?




cheers, M.

HOTTEST BUYS OF THE MONTH - June 2017

No drugs were taken in the making of this article, I swear. I'm just writing these column in a single row. Yes, that's my fault, but yes, you'll have to go through this.





There is quite a lot of challenging pieces here ; weird shapes, odd materials... I don't know, your choice. But it's like everything, either the whole picture is perfect, or each piece taken separately is perfect - and that's somehow a reason why I admire the person (or people) behind the monthly hotbuys picture who succeed in putting them all together in two to three outfits. Beware, brain vomit ahead.




Here are what I bought :
the oversized denim jacket : big and chunky, always available for a hug. I have no more excuse to crave for a Bae.
the bra-bustier : yes it looks like that swimsuit from last month. Yes I don't need it. Of course I'm buying it.
the "Linda from HR"/Fendi keychain : that lady from that nearby desk gets on your nerves at work ? why not wearing a mini version of her 24/24 BECAUSE YOU'RE A FREAK AND A MASOCHIST ? lol jk it's just for voodoo.
the Yamamoto glasses : pretending to be a voice-over comedian for Korean documentaries isn't just a dream anymore. Thanks Yohji.
the denim bottoms : "is this a blanket or is this a sweater ?" commercial can be very easily transposed to that thing.
the two toned platforms : the seventies called, they want their platform back HAHAHAHA
the shiny pink shoes : look at them cuties !
the Miu Miu purse : looks like a joke, worn as a joke but secretly I'm seriously considering this is a masterpiece.




And here are the outfits that I've made with them :




1. This chick is about to be praised for the weirdest Korean short film ever - HB sunglasses + top, Chanel coat & Dior shoes + pants.
2. This chick is about to release the less anticipated hard rock mixtape ever - HB short + jacket & Saint Laurent tights.
3. This chick is about to end her three year relationship to live her gardening fetich to the max - HB bag + keychain + shoes, Lanvin belt & D&G dress.






That's all !
So, what did you get ?




cheers, M.

HOTTEST BUYS OF THE MONTH - May 2017

Another day, another Hotbuys column. I have no clue how this can be interesting since it was relevant two months ago. Still, I'm in an evil mood today so sorry not sorry if this pollutes your blogspot feed - quick question : who really uses this ?





This June's release was more to my taste I must say ; muted and low profile colors, my jam. I think that my new job perverted my fashion sense : I had to trim the bleach of my hair, remove the neon colors and put transparent top-coatish nail polish, and stop wearing crazy t-shirts/skirts/shoes... no need to say that I never felt that lucky to love pitch black blazers ; so every time I see "classic" colors, I see some potential. Don't worry, I may start a nervous breakdown soon and I'll look like a human rainbow again in just a finger snap.




Here are what I bought :
the pompom earrings : I wish they were not a pair.. I'm wearing different earrings in the office, the only fashion freedom my boss did not noticed yet.
the straw bag : I always thought this is just going to be a phase... but that was before July arrived (wait for it...).
the stripes'n'lace mini dress : perfect. I would have adored it as a top tho.
the black swimsuit : the staple piece, and perhaps my new favorite body.
the D&G sunglasses : big round and crazy shiny. Kill me.
the open-toe sandals : is there anything more boring classic in this release - I don't think so.
the bowling creepers : bought them because Twin Peaks was having a revival and they almost look like Audrey Thorne's.




And here are the outfits that I've made with them :




1. Dad's little girl cannot figure out how to dress properly for a gig - HB dress as a top, Chanel earring & Dior shoes.
2. SHE BACK : THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER in boring colors - HB swimsuit, Chanel bangles & Balmain shoes.
3. Me next month if I'm still not allowed to put another color than black-blue-white - HB glasses, D&G coat, Sonia Rykiel top & Gucci shoes.





That's all !
So, what did you get ?

HOTTEST BUYS OF THE MONTH - April 2017

Hello, it's me ♪ lol jk. Miss me much ? Alright, Tribute season just began and I have a humongous amount of things to share. But first, let's continue with this Hotbuys column that I left aside last May.




I hated it at first sight ; too many bright, vitamin colors and I just can't right now. I think that if you're not in a mood for such vibrant colors, you feel like you're about to have a popsicle unicorn poop nightmare buffet (or you stared at a Katy Perry music video for a week - your choice). But, let's not be too extreme. Vibrant could be interesting as well. I have found some pieces that seems to be quite a nice catch. Let me ramble demonstrate this to you :




Here are what I bought :
the checkered sunset nightmare bag : bought to add some Vetements quirky irony to any outfit.
the bucket rainbow nightmare bag : bought for its graphic quality - but this is just a unicorn poop-picking fancy bucket.
the blood orange nightmare glasses : bought to evil-stare at the city on fire while sipping an Aperol Spritz cocktail and listening to the Walkyries.
the prairie wonderland nightmare bustier : bought because... I don't remember honestly - sorry.
the Valentino shoes : the only thing I was REALLY considering buying. Fuuuuuuuuuuuu** erm yep.




And here are the outfits that I've made with them :




1. Aperol Spritz are so 2015 but who cares I need one don't judge me okay ? - HB sunglasses + shoes.
2. I am a meanie IRL but I also like to milk my cows myself - HB bustier & Alexander Wang bag.
3. I love recycling unicorn poop it's the best roses fertilizer ever  - HB bags & Valentino tops.






That's all !
So, what did you get ?




cheers, M.
