Von 50' - Retro Chic Français

Dear readers,
let me introduce you a new french brand: Von 50'

(Wearing the French Cancan blouse, see below for more details. Earrings are from Glitter Paradise, Hat from Jazzafine and gloves are vintage)

Created by Emilie Bellan-PayraultVon 50' is a mix of Haute Couture, Old Hollywood iconic stars' clothing and famous fashion magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar of that decade.

Ladies, you can now wear a classic vintage style everyday!

VON 50' has been created to reach three goals: let women reclaim their femininity and curves, reinvent quality so luxury would become affordable, offer all of us a maximum of self-confidence.

What Emilie Bellan-Payrault, the founder, says about her brand:
"The 1950’s represent the lead of french Haute-Couture worlwide with Dior, Chanel, Jacques Fath, Pierre Balmain, Madame Grès, Nina Ricci, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin … We found that decade inspiration to be the most exciting ever, and wish to experience it again : Sophistication, Elegance and Quality are our motivations.

But who could enhance these distinctive silhouettes, better than the Hollywood iconic Stars of the 50’s ? They were, for sure, the best worldwide ambassadresses to magnify these creation styles. We love to see these pictures of Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn (Givenchy’s muse) and so many more… Marilyn, of course, took the lead of Glamour style with adjusted dresses, gloves and always high-waisted pencil skirts. Who could reveal this fashion better than Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar magazines, opening a new area of photography, through graceful models like Carmen Dell’Orefice, Dovima, Suzy Parker, Anne Sainte Marie, Ivy Nicholson ?

So VON 50’ is here to offer access to Elegant 50’s inspired Haute-Couture Collection, with a high quality of that time, and affordable prices to make Ladies’ dreams come true. We want Glamour, Elegance, Chic and Feminine shaped Silhouettes back !"

Franc Bourgeois Blouse & Regarde-Moi Skirt

These 2 pieces are really perfect, even if they are from the Fall/Winter collection 
they can be wearable during the early spring days. But first let's start with the Franc Bourgeois Blouse.

This 100% satin silk blouse is my favorite piece from all the collection and for a couple of reasons. With its slim fit, pearly buttons and short sleeves you can easily mix it with other pieces from your wardrobe. Satin silk blouse can be tricky to wear but this one have a perfect tailored cut and will make you feel feminine and seductive. A French satin silk to exalt the woman radiance, very retro glamour. 
Finish with tie the knot for a Chic style.

Now it's time to move to the Regarde-Moi Skirt in Black & White chains.

Unavoidable in a woman's wardrobe: a very high waist spandex pencil skirt. 
This even more dramatic high-waisted skirt starts just below the bra and ends under knee. 
But don't be afraid if you are, like me, a petite lady, it's work very well (as I'm 5'1" and I wear it without problem) paired with your favorite high heels.

This Glamchic style draws a stunning shaped figure, extends the silhouette, gives a natural waist-cincher effect. That's the true reedition of a classic length, to reach elegance and ultra-femininity of demanding women. Enhance a womanliness appeal and seduction everyday at work, for private dates and all parties.

French Cancan Blouse

This black french silk blouse is a must have. 

A major trendy blouse of the Fall/Winter 2014. The French Cancan is made of French silk for a delicate, breathable, soft retro touch, and also spandex and darts for a perfect fitting. The adorable silk covered buttons increase, with the gathers an elegant gorgeous womanliness power.
All details had been thought for your Glamchic style, for your light sensation of softness on your skin.

The Jolie Jacket and the Salon Privé Skirt

Like the French Cancan these 2 pieces are a major trendy items from the Fall/Winter collection.

The Jolie Jacket is made with 100% pure virgin wool tweed from Parisian's Haute Couture suppliers. but the fitted cut is positively British. 

The Salon Privé skirt is a very classic vintage style made with the same tweed like the Jolie Jacket with the finest french tweed. Enter into the very retro 50's atmosphere: a shaped body, slimed waist, modeled bum for the most Glamchic silhouette. You can buy the skirt here:
Associated the both pieces and you get the perfect feminin combination, reaching both elegance and a cosy suit for wintertime.
These items are right now on sale at 70% OFF so it's time to grab them before they're gone forever

Blue Winter

Dear readers,

January is the longest and most depressing month of the year. The end of year festivities are over, the city becomes dark and days are increasingly short. But once January ended spring seems so closer and that makes me keep smiling and feel happy. 

I am one of those people who is looking forward to every minute of light that we have more every day. It's the little things in life but for me they are important.

So since we are still in January it's never too late to wish you all the best for this new year 2015. May all your dreams come true and hope that this year will be full of happiness, joy and love.

If I had one wish for this year it would be that people are more grateful for what they have (I mean for real and not just because it seems nice to say that) especially if an opportunity or anything else happens thanks to someone else. Unfortunately, some people take ownership of the merits instead of being grateful for what others have brought them, it's not a good thing. Say "thank you" is something that we should learn. While it appears somewhat old-fashioned this is the education that I got, stay kind, polite, humble and generous. But sometimes I realize too late that it does not go both ways.

Here I want to share with you my last 2014 shooting with Damona-Art (all pictures here are from her).  I discovered this beautiful place called "Judeco" a few months now and I talked to Damona about it, how beautiful it's look and how it can fit for a new shooting. I'm always excited when I discover a new place and this one was fabulous. There was so many rooms in various colors, it was not easy to choose.

Enjoy the pictures.

The first one is the Gatlin Gal Black & Red Rose Swing Dress. This dress features a faux wrap over stretch detail to cinch your curves, sweetheart neckline and a voluminous circle skirt. Created in a dramatic print featuring a ruby red rose set on a black background.
I really like how this dress is comfortable also the material is perfect and make it wearable during all seasons. Pair it with some warm stockings during to cold winter days and with a cute cardigan for late spring days.
The cut of the dress is very classy and elegant, you can't go wrong with !

The second dress is the Black Zephyr Pencil Dress. 
Tailored using stretch gabardine and stretch lining to achieve a perfect hourglass fit. With three quarter sleeves, chic high neckline, gathered waist darts and a patent belt highlights the cinched waist this dress creates.
This dress is simply amazing ! It fits like a glove and I had the feeling that it's made to measure. It's the perfect black dress that all girls should have in their closet.
