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

 

 

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

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.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RUCHING

 

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!

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!

If you are not sure about it, look at these pictures.

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!
                                                             OR
2 – Know your pants size? We will add two inches to your number to calculate your Belt size!
                                                              OR
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 😉

If you read this, I wish you a Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 will be full of kindness and hope. 

The other day, my husband asked me what were my resolutions for the new year. Well, I came to realize that I am not good with resolutions. I feel I put unnecessary pressure on myself. Nowadays, I see women seemingly juggling everything at once, trying to be the best at all of it, where failure cannot be acceptable. I am lucky to have amazing (super)women as clients (and men of course) and thrilled to be here to take the shopping and image pressure off their plate.  Resolutions? Not for me because it means we add more pressure to our life, but small changes, yes.

Talking about small changes, over the years, I have been more and more appreciative of the Californian lifestyle (no, I am not going to start juicing FYI) and have decided to let go of some of my bad french diet rules (bread, cheese, charcuterie every day? yes… I was a little bit stubborn about it). 

The problem is I also picked up some bad american habits, aka take out.  I used to cook, but have become a bit lazy over the years. 

I am also in my 30’s which means I can’t put all the food I want in my body and process it as easily as I used to in my 20’s.

So no drastic resolutions this year but hopefully a healthier lifestyle that will work for me. I am trying out a more mediterranean diet which means not really any restrictions but some adjustments (and it allows red wine!).

Work-wise, as a stylist, helping my clients with their style and wardrobe is my job. But for 2018 I want to introduce more ways to support them so they can focus on what’s really important for them and let me handle the hassle of maintaining an up to date wardrobe. I can’t wait to roll out new services.

Whether you decided to have new resolutions or not, I wish you a happy, balanced and healthy year!

I am sure you heard the rule, don’t wear white after labor day.  Back in the day, the practical reason was that white was a good color to stay cool during summer and that labor day was the tipping point of the end of the vacation.

As for me, I think white is such a beautiful color that can be worn all year around. I really think it is very elegant and brights up a gloomy weather. So let’s get inspired ladies!
