If you wear a new item of clothing on New Year's Eve, you will receive a new item of clothing.

It's New Year's Eve, if there was ever a time to get glammed up it's tonight. So pull out your patent leather heels, the higher the better, put on that red nail polish and please don't skimp on the dramatic jewels and a little animal print never hurt anyone.

A leopard cannot change his spots.

Pin It Now!

Another winter favorite, the fur vest. Be it bunny, raccoon, fox or poly-blend we love these vests. This little animalesque look is completed by a hint of leopard, which is after all the best way to wear leopard, in moderation. We love this cosy winter look that doesn't look too bulky but clean cut and warm.

As you sit on the terrace remembering and turning your face to the light.

Pin It Now!

A simple afternoon spent drinking a beer on a well known terrace with a dear friend. Although it is nothing out of the ordinary it is no reason not to dress your best. Looks that are casual yet well thought out are what we love most; a timeless shearling jacket tailored in an almost motorcycle style, light colored khakis and a darling blue wool blazer stand out thanks to the hot red turtleneck. Nothing about these looks says dressy, yet they evoke a sentiment everlasting style.

Hell bent, hell bent for leather.

Baby, it's cold outside.

Pin It Now!

When it's freezing sometimes it's hard to leave the warmth of the winter hearth, much less in stylish clothing. The secret to staying warm and stylish is found in cold weather accessories. Not only are they Christmas gift classics, so you must have acquired plenty of them this year, but they are the perfect complements to any outfit, keeping you warm and bundled up. A colorful printed scarf, a furry trapper hat and a lovely pair of cashmere gloves will take you from cold and frumpy to warm and fashionable.

Sitting on the floor, I'd replay the past in my head.

Pin It Now!

Two grounded girls, one in fur, one holding vintage leather. We love the adult look of the one, mixing her youthful pose with her very grown up coat gives a traditionally older style a whole new life. The luxurious leather bag of the other reminds us of everlasting quality, leather that has lived, that has a story of it's own. 

When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness.

Pin It Now!

Vin de Noël, fine jams and teas, fancy foreign foods and much much more. Maison Servan is a Bordelais institution which began began selling jewelry and now sells just as precious foods. It is the perfect destination for the food lovers on your list.

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.

Another fabulous laid back yet polished look. We love the ankle boots for men, the lighter colored pants which aren't as popular in the wintertime making their cold weather statement all the more powerful, worn with more classic items like the trench coat or the vintage leather briefcase, the overall effect of this ensemble is modern but remains grounded. 

Christmas is the day that holds all time together.

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.

Elegant and fun, the perfect holiday season outfit must incorporate a fun twist. We love how this seemingly classic wool coat bears a funky leopard interior. Paired with classic over the knee boots and a cream turtleneck it says sophisticated but never boring.

As Christmas is approaching, Sainte Catherine is filling up and people are rushing in and out of stores with more and more bags full of gifts. These aren't the only signs of the holidays coming nearer. We love the smiles that are gracing everyone's faces, and the elegant touches to their outfits; fun hats, beautiful silk scarves, amazing platform boots and more and more fur coats.

I dream of wayward gulls and all landless lovers, rare moments of winter sun, peace, privacy, for everyone.

Big chunky sweaters and oversized warm colored scarfs can often suffice on warmer winter days. Also perfect for these sunnier times are simple minis paired with black tights and your favorite boots. The feeling of not carrying a big coat around is liberating and makes one feel like he can finally take in some rays of sunshine.

Hey, I like that hat, man. They sell men's clothes where you got that?

Pin It Now!

Collegiate fashion, could it be that this style is back in town or that it never left us? What's sure is while it brings a sense of timeless intellect, it is best worn in a sober yet defined manner. A simply classic hat, a true and worn briefcase, and a pair of elegant suede shoes is all it takes to evoke this modern classic.

Let the rest of the world beat their brains out for a buck. It's friends that count. And I got friends.

Pin It Now!

Fashion seen as a whole rather than individually becomes all the more powerful. When each member's personal style and attitude is melted into a group of others' it creates a whole new sense of esthetic. We love this group's playful energy and the sense of proximity they give to anyone looking on.
