Here comes yet another episode of our beloved Dare to Wear series which focuses on the unusual, whimsical and the fun side of accessories, mainly jewelry, mainly handmade and fairly original. The kind of things you won’t find at your nearest fast fashion store and not even on the seasonal busy catwalks but in the Dare the Wear drawers!
Stephanie Kilgast creates a magic world of miniature foodie jewelry under the name PetitPlat (Tiny Meal in French). Her home/atelier is in Vannes, in the North-Western France, but Stephanie is driven and inspired by Freedom and the power that comes with being Free.

When marketing delivers a model you can identify with, you slowly morph into a loyal customer, just because you want a piece of that happy ‘model’ feeling. I was looking for some shopping inspiration and I came across an important piece of news: Ines de la Fressange released a collection with Uniqlo.
The towering queen of French Casual Chic is launching an affordable line through a fast fashion store – what’s not to like? But just days before, yet another iconic personality was announced to partner up with Uniqlo: the new King of Happy, Pharrell!

I was writing that green-accented outfits piece earlier and this happy feeling stuck with me. I decided to give it yet another chance to express itself by writing about one of the things I love most: Bows!
I love bows with a passion that I’m hoping to pass on to my daughter (wink – I have a feeling I already did, actually) and I happen to think they’re the most beautiful, feminine knots in the entire Universe! But how can you bring bows into your everyday outfits without making it look too childish or silly?

Two newslines caught my undivided attention yesterday: Taylor Swift earned last year twice as Beyonce did in the same period of time! second: Lorde is soon releasing a makeup collection with M.A.C. . How do these two collide in my head? Scroll down to find out!
Straight hair is synonymous with celebrity. But how ‘natural’ is straight hair and how bending the nature contributes to being a celebrity? Isn’t it the least weird that in order to become successful, an artist has to undergo such significant changes and transformation which literally transfigure its persona into something else. Something like-able by everyone.
Or so they say: That everyone likes a certain stereotype of performer. Studies are constantly pushing new conclusions, shaping new characteristics for the dream entertainer.

Personally expressing his gratitude and joy, Louis Vuitton’s new creative chief, Nicolas Ghesquiere, made sure every seat in the audience carried one of his typewritten notes where his described his above-mentioned feelings.
I, on the other hand, watching and going through his designs from the comfort of my own home, felt like timetraveling from centuries past to post-modern fashion. Reinvention, covers, redesigns, Ghesquiere’s ‘new day’ has strong past flavors. I’m oh-so-thankful for him bringing back on the catwalk two outstanding models: Freja Beha Erichsen and Liya Kebede.
