HOW I STYLE A WRAP DRESS WITH A 70’S TOUCH

This article will be available in english soon. Aussitôt  que j’ai vu cette robe portefeuille à l’entrée d’H&M , je la voulais dans ma penderie ! (rires) La raison ? J’aime beaucoup les robes. Mais j’en porte peu. Car j’en possède peu… Enfin pas autant que je le voudrais. En même temps, j’ai la sensation que peu de modèles me vont réellement . Sauf  quand on parle de robes portefeuilles, et là mes réserves se volatilisent. La robe portefeuille est LE modèle le plus adapté à ma morphologie. Son avantage, c’est que sa coupe s’adapte  à mes formes et non le contraire, comme ça peut-être le cas avec d’autres modèles ( pas mal d’entre eux en fait).   De plus, pour moi qui  privilégie le confort à toutes les autres dimensions lorsque je m’habille, c’est le modèle parfait.

HOW I WEAR A PRINTED WAX PIECE

 Photos : Kirsten A. Will be available in english shortly. En plus de vraiment aimer porter de la couleur, j’ai un truc pour les imprimés. Et encore plus pour ceux des beaux wax que l’on trouve “au pays” et que les femmes de chez nous et femmes de la diaspora, forgent à leurs images respectives. Cela est possible grâce au talent des couturières et tailleurs, qui y sont encore largement répandus. Comme ma grand-mère, qui a fait parler son art pendant des décennies et qui prend tout juste sa retraite. Elle a été a plusieurs reprises les mains emplies de savoir-faire et d’expérience qui ont amené à la vie mes envies de mode, comme ici. Les chiens ne font définitivement pas les chats ( rires ) Le tissus dans lequel est sculpté ce top (…

DO WHAT FEELS GOOD

 Photos : Kirsten A. It’s crazy how weight is something I obsess about and see as an issue. Two days ago, I was horrified because I didn’t fit in my friend’s beautiful dress. Did I mention I had champagne and snacked a little ? In my eyes,  I’m always TOO thick . It’s the first time I am actually acknowledging my body image issues. And it’s been stuck with me for a while.  It was already the case 15 years ago when I was 54 kg. I wonder why I am so hard on myself ? I am sure I am not the only one it’s an issue for. So why not make it a conversation over on Multicolore Paris ? When it becomes an obsession… Focusing so much on my weight has become such an obsession,…

UNIFORM #2 : I WEAR CULOTTES !

Photos : Yassine I. It took me a while to find the right  cut of pants in which I feel comfortable taking into account the parameters that make me, well me. These parameters being my little belly, my shapes that I do not try to hide, but no longer try suffocate into tiny cuts, or the length that can be problematic when you buy something other than Levi’s. And then  culottes burst into my world. Ever since then I can not live without them. Top : H&M | Culottes : BERSHKA | Kitten heels : MINELLI | Purse : CARPISA The cut I go for every single time. For almost a year, this is the cut that I preferred to slim, straight leg, bootcut, mom jeans, carrots cuts or any kind of pants and denim. It’s a…

UNIFORM #1 : CAMEL & LEOPARD

Photos : Yacine I. You know those mornings when you’re just not feeling it ? You feel tired, annoyed and mentally it’s just not it ! The breakout that you hoped would shrink has actually grown instead, despite the  toothpaste tip that your girlfriend gave you and on which you had high hopes. Well, then, you go shower hoping that finally the good mood will end up falling upon you. Then, you arrive in front of your closet and it’s also at the moment, that FINALLY the world lights up! Here is the whole point of having either a well stocked or handpicked. wardrobe To make up for a day that had a half chance of being completely messed up. Clothes have that power and never let anyone tell you otherwise. It gives you strength to live the…

EL SALER, VALENCIA

Back in August 2018. At that time, I’m still on a family vacation in Spain. The weather is nice, it’s hot and life in Valencia is chill.  Our days are divided between visits to the Cabanyal Market, swimming at the Playa de la Malvarossa or strolling around the city center. We were in a  kind of holiday routine that I think is really enjoyable when traveling with family (in my case with my parents, my sister and a friend of hers). To give a little boost to this pleasant but slow-paced holiday, with my sister and her girlfriend, I decided to go visit El Saler. El Saler is a town located south of Valencia and is the site of a unique natural environment, which is classified under environmental protection, the Albufera Natural Park, extending over…

PATCHWORK X VICHY

This series was shot during my summer holidays in Spain. It’s been a while since I had it in stock to present it to you but pause obliges, here it is, here it is. That day, it was so hot, we were shopping  downtown Valencia with my mother, my sister and her friend. From the beginning this shooting was just going wrong. I almost had to beg my sister to agree to hold the camera and press the button while I was “directing” her . LOL. Then between the buses that came along , my face dripping with sweat, my sister who could not make a clear shot and my mother who chanted a “Let’s go” every 15 seconds, this shoot wasn’t unfolding as I hoped. The result ? A series of cliché not so…
