The Gals 

It’s been a while since I wrote a fashion post… 
Fashion sketch
What is happening with me? I’m a die hard sports enthusiast with a flare with fashion. 
That’s why I want to write about this fabulous Canadian company that I fell in love with 5 years ago.
Their message is why wait for the man of our dreams (sort of) to give us that shiny rock, a diamond, when we can treat ourselves with one and put it on our right hand. I was so on board with this mentality!
The Right Hand Gal rings
The Right Hand Gal is a Montreal (yeah!) based jewelry company that two passionate sisters have built in the spirit of empowerment, with such beautiful, simplistic jewelry designs.

Shawna and Randi Herlich are the two sisters behind this successful Canadian brand.
Their creations are so nicely done and so comfortable. I just can’t get enough of watching their website.

And, the gals are some of nicest people I have met. I met them in Montreal at Billie’s store on a December night in 2013. They both helped me pick up a nice ring in order to bring an outfit to life.

Until now, when I want to feel I could conquer the world, I wear it with no other jewelry. 
Mission accomplished!
A few actresses, musicians, and public personalities are big fans too. I will leave you the pleasure of Googling their names to find out or go to the Gals website.

This Monday, my post is an ode to my favorite gals. We can be sure the gals will surprise us in 2018 and we will still be amazed by their talent.
Girls power
Gals forever!!

Rod Ortega, our fairy godfather!

There some people that keep you on your toes with their creativity.

Rod Ortega

Rod Ortega is definitely one of them. He is the fairy godfather of the locks of Blake Lively, Amal Clooney, Jennifer Lopez and many more women.

I love his old school hairstyle vibe he created with twist. I promise myself when I will go to LA, I will go to have my hair being in the hands of this magician.

Now, I’m all excited to see his next creation on the red carpet. He is truly an artist like Leonardo da Vinci.

If you don’t believe, please have a look to the pictures below.

 

What I really like with Rod is  that he is a really sweet and humble person. He sends me some nice words of encouragement for my blog.

Usually our hairdresser is like our therapists. You go to talk about your day, maybe gossip a little bit or just having this very easy-going conversation while you get pampered.

Rod give you this vibe of your perfect hairstylist.

He has a close friendship with his leading ladies and some of them has been a long-term friendship that go for two decades like Jennifer Lopez. I really love and admired that trait of character.

You can see his generosity by sharing the step-by-step guide to achieve those same hairstyles you may have seen on some celebrities and public personalities.

Maybe in 2018, Rod will share with us a few tricks.

At the end, Rod Ortega is our tresses godfather.

Can I get a amen?

Amen!

Caroline de Maigret : La plus cool des Parisienne à mes yeux de Montréalaise

Elle est une des icônes de la mode de notre génération. Elle une mélomane incontournable qui adore la musique. Elle est une des femmes les plus cool de cette planète.

Caro

Je vous présente en ce lundi 16 octobre 2017 Caroline de Maigret.

Caroline de Maigret

Pour ceux et celles qui ne la connaisse pas, voici l’occasion de faire sa connaissance et de vous laisser charmer par cette belle parisienne.

Née en 1975 en Neuilly-sur-Seine en France, elle est la fille d’un père politicien et d’une mère championne en natation.

Au cours des années 90, elle a travaillé avec les grands du monde de la photographie tels que Mario Testino et Peter Lindbergh (wow) quand elle résidait à New York. Mais qu’est-ce qui m’a impressionné avec Caroline est une fois de retour à Paris au cours de l’année 2003, elle lance sa boîte de production de musique. Je trouve ça audacieux et vu que j’adore la musique, disons que je la vois comme un modèle à suivre en ce qui concerne poursuivre ses passions et son instinct.

C et Y

Durant la même année, elle rencontre Yarold Poupaud et voilà le début d’une belle collaboration professionnelle et personnelle qui dure encore jusqu’à ce jour. Ils sont juste trop beau ensemble.

Caroline a écrit un livre en collaboration avec ses 3 copines qui sont Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan et Sophie Masqui. Ce livre est un ‘’must ‘’ à avoir chères fashionistas et femmes de ce monde. ‘’How To Be Parisian Wherever You are’’ est un incontournable livre à avoir. On parle toujours de ce style parisien, de cette attitude qu’elle semble à avoir cette Parisienne ultra cool. Le livre le décrit très bien, mais c’est bien plus que les tenues à porter.

Caroline

C’est une question d’attitude. En fait, tout est dans l’attitude. J’adore le chapitre sur les Simones , Not a wedding (tellement moi), cool or cold et la liste continue. Je ne peux pas m’en passer de ce livre.

How To Be Parisian

J’ai bien aimé lire un article qui décrit parfaitement Caroline sur le site web du magazine Elle France lors d’une entrevue avec la journaliste Françoise-Marie Santucci. Je vous partage le lien de cette belle entrevue.

http://www.elle.fr/People/La-vie-des-people/Interviews/Caroline-de-Maigret-Parisienne-de-tous-les-pays-2862092

Peut-être qu’un jour, je pourrais parler avec Caroline de musique avec un regard émerveillé sur son rôle en tant que productrice.

Caroline et Chanel

Et entre une conversation sur Les Beatles et Pink Floyd, on pourrait parler de son expérience de travailler avec Testino, Lagerfeld et Marc Jacobs tout en portant mes chaussures Converse et en sirotant un verre de vino.

Je vous laisse sur ce vidéo super géniale de Caroline de Maigret pour la maison Chanel.

Son côté super cool ne peut pas passer inaperçu. Que nous réservera Caroline durant l’année 2018?

D’autres belles surprises!

SHOW OFF

Un petit chronicle fashion pour mes fashionistas et fashionisters! Je ne vous oublie pas messieurs.

Ça fait des lunes que je recherchais un objet que je pourrais étaler mes colliers et accessoires tout en ayant un look minimalisme, une durabilité exceptionnelle et une fonctionnalité hors-paire tout en se mariant avec le décor de ma chambre à coucher.

Finalement, mon vœu est devenu une réalité. L’artiste montréalaise Malgosia Bajkowska a créé le support parfait pour mes accessoires .

Le SHOW OFF est un showstopper.

Qu’est ce que j’aime dans les peintures et les créations de Malgosia est justement cette simplicité et délicatesse tout en utilisant des éléments comme aluminium, le fer en autre qui sont des éléments qui ont un caractère un peu plus robuste à mon avis.

Le SHOW OFF est abordable si vous voulez un produit qui va durer pendant plusieurs années. Et c’est un produit made in Montreal.

J’adore encourager les produits canadiens et je trouve ça cool que des artistes également encouragent la production de leurs produits au bercail.

J’ai déjà commencé à étaler mes bijoux de Flora Ciccarelli, de MYEL, une petite place pour les accessoires de ma chère Tala et d’autres créatrices exceptionnelles grâce à la belle création de Malgosia.

Ne soyez pas surprise que sur mon compte Instagram, Je prendrai plusieurs photos en montrant ce beau support et les beaux bijoux de ces merveilleuses créatrices et magiciennes artistiques.

Si vous êtes désirez commander votre porte-bijoux urbain SHOW OFF, voici les coordonnées ou pour plus d’information, vous pouvez écrire à Malgosia Bajkowska.

Visitez également son compte Instagram qui est superbe et elle nous gâte en prenant des photos de ses belles créations artistiques.

Tala is in the house

While visiting Vogue.com last week before I went to dodo land, I just jump into my bed and read a really good article about my girl, the enfant terrible of fashion Tala Alamuddin.

Tala

I was so happy to read about her on Vogue UK and I know she is preparing the launching of her super cool company Totally Tala in 2018 for the european and american customers.

Her bags are so wicked and her earrings are just divine. Yes, I am fan and I love the fact that fringes is to be a center part of her creativity. As a kid, I was always a little bit more bohemian in my look than glamorous. Now, I’m pretty much more a minimalist but I do love to have an accessory that had that little craziness and fun in my outfit.

With Tala’s accessories, you can add that little fun into your outfit too. She is residing in the beautiful Singapour but you can see that she is a globetrotter and that she probably got inspired by the places she has visited around the globe to create beautiful pieces.

Here’s  a picture of one of her bag that I clearly see myself rocking it to go to work or hanging out at a cool Montreal Café in the Plateau.

Don’t worry guys, The Chronicle and Totally Tala will rock your world in 2018. I won’t say more hihi.

In the meantime, if you want to be totally swept away by the talented and fun Mrs.A, check out her Twitter and Instagram account. It’s off the hook and she managed to put a smile upon your face with her uplifting attitude and sense of humor.

She is truly someone we should watch closely in 2018 and I’m very proud of what she have accomplish so far.

Here the link to the Vogue UK article about Tala. It’s a really good read and the pictures are so beautiful and truly shown Tala’s personality.

The world will be totally hook on Tala!

I promise you that.

Lyons Empire

It is coming!

It will be epic and out of this world.

We got a small taste of it when Jenna Lyon  was the captain of the J.Crew ship.

Jenna

I won’t talk about her departure from J.Crew but instead, her impact on the fashion industry and pop culture on a this Chronicle that will take 2 minutes of your time.

She manage to mix originality with classics.

She didn’t have the easiest childhood. Like me and probably a lot of you, she was bullied because she was in a kid standard different. But she didn’t let her stop her. Instead, she didn’t play the victim and she realize she had a gift. A visionary gift early on.

Automatically, I was attracted to her.

She work really hard to get where she was as the President and Creative Director of J.Crew. She didn’t kiss asses but she is a firm believer of working hard for the things you love.

Actually, her message is to be passionate and with this passion, you will move some big mountains.

My kind of philosophy.

She is laid-back, hard worker and authentic person.

Here some words of wisdom. Even at 34, I still need it from time to time.

The best is yet to come with Jenna Lyons.

I will sure be the first one to get on this joyride.

Will you ride with us?

Queen Victoria

Victoria Beckham!

IMG_3008

Her work ethic that I do much respect, her tenacity to never giving up, her wicked sense of humor and her dedication to succeed are traits that I admire so much.

IMG_2996

She always had a eye for fashion and she wasn’t afraid to experiment (the Versace head to toe outfit she worn in 1999 with David). She flourished as a designer and my oh my I love her designs.

With her team, she working hard to create timeless collection.

Her goal as she said is to create clothes that will make feel a woman comfortable and empowering. She is the ultimate Girl Power Queen.

IMG_3002

I never saw her as a wannabe but as a woman that is on a quest to be the best version of herself.

IMG_2992

I’m always been since childhood  attract to the minimalist, a little touch of androgynous and a big sparkle of feminity. YSL, Isabel Marant, Yohji Yamamoto, Calvin Klein, even Armani  in my eyes. Victoria Beckham in on that list without a doubt.

I will let you have a look of her fabulous website.

Sky is definitely the limit for Victoria. And she is inspiring me to see no limits into looking to the sky!
