Fashion is all about playing with new trends. Not everything works on everyone so my advice is to try and explore different options but without compromising to feel good about how you look.
Animal print is one of my favorite pattern and I frankly don’t see it as a trend but more as a timeless statement detail. I was pretty excited that it is fully back on. You can be very chic in an animal print and most likely it won’t go out of style. If you don’t dare about a full animal print ensemble, a purse or a pair of shoes will be a great touch!
Plaid feels like Fall and has a vintage elegance to it that I like a lot. It can look modern like the picture on the left or sophisticated as you can see on the right image.
As an image consultant and stylist, I love a ruching because it works on a lot of different body types. It can camouflage the mid section and create a nice waistline. A ruched dress or even a swimsuit (this one here has pearls details!) will create a nice hourglass figure.
I hope you got inspired to go out of your confort zone and try new trends!
Part II of my summer accessories is about bags!
During summer I like to play with fun purses that use different colors and style. I love to use a beach bag for running errands or go to the market. In the south of France we get some really nice straw bags that we use for everything.
Summer is here (for the ones who don’t live in San Francisco)! I have been lucky shopping for clients who need a vacation wardrobe. One of my favorite thing is to shop for summer accessories including sandals… Hence to the first part of my summer accessories blog story!
In summer, since you can not really wear layering pieces, what makes an outfit pop are the accessories.
I personally love a nice pair of sandals. Heels or not, they can make a statement. Wear a simple dress and add a stylish sandals and you are done! Here is my selection for you.
I hope I inspired you to make more of a splash with your sandals.
I LOVE a pair of sneakers. I wear mines all the time. I have a pair of white, a pair of black and thinking of adding a pink or silver one… Of course, I walk a lot because of my work but I also think they became a timeless piece. It is not a casual pair of shoes for young adults anymore.
I love how you can wear them in a lot of different ways. Dressing them up, down, with dresses, pants, jeans… Your choice!

Since the CAMILLE Belts have launched, we have received many inquiries regarding belt sizes as people are wondering “How do I know my belt size?”.
First, the most important thing to know before answering this question is “On which part of your body do you tend to wear your belt?”
In fact, there are three easy ways to know your belt size :
1- Measure the size of your waist or hips depending on where you usually wear your belt. Some people wear it around the hips, some others around the waist. The size of your waist (or hips) is two inches smaller than your belt size.
In other words, we will add two inches to your number to calculate your Belt size!
2 – Know your pants size? We will add two inches to your number to calculate your Belt size!
3 – Measure the size of a belt you currently wear from the end of the buckle to the hole you are using. This measurement corresponds to your waist or hip size depending on where you wear your belt. Once again, we do the math and we’ll add 2 inches to that number!
It’s that easy. You don’t even have to know your belt size!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention… There is a big chance that you will change size before your CAMILLE Belt wears out 😉
