Inspiration comes from many places, the point is you get to choose where...

A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future
 - Coco Chanel



Today's inspiration stemmed from two places.

First from the visionary that was Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel and the brand still continuing to shine. 

The beautiful packaging and ad campaign (with Keira Knightly) of their Coco Mademoiselle Perfume
got me thinking about Gabrielle, 
her menswear-inspired fashion and the effortless style the French seem to possess.



Next I turned to a book I read recently...


Parisian Chic: A style guide by Ines de la Fressange.

A gorgeous and entertaining read full of tips and insight into that covetable Parisian style.

This is a great read if you love Paris 
but cannot possibly imagine how a parisian would think to dress,
Well worth a trip to BookDepository.



Not the stereotypical french look, 
but who said being inspired meant I couldn't make my own arrangements ...






necklace - Diva
shirt - Glassons
belt - Kookai
pants - made by me
shoes - Country Road
ring - from Gmarket (yesterdays also)
watch - Lego from asos




What inspires you?

Till next time

  1. I think you did a pretty good interpretation of both inspirations. That sheer shirt looks like a must have!

    This blog makes me want to put more effort and have more fun with my everyday outfits :)

    Oh, and I've heard that that book is an enjoyable read as well.
