|Pictures by James Vyn|
ONE DAY, TWO STOPS Well first of all, as I am posting these pictures something stroke me : James is getting better and better each day isn’t he? I mean, I remember when we started the blog and the pictures were just ”okay” but now I am so fascinated with his photography and his vision. It’s quite amazing, we might just be walking in the street and he would go like ”STOP, the light is just perfeect” (such a photographer thing to say…). I am feeling just so gratefull for his amazing work, and we both are so incredibly glad that you folks seem to enjoy it too! A shoutout was indeed needed. You know guys, after a long moment of reflexion, I truly believe that a purpose of a blog is the evasion and the inspiration (because believe me, I have tried to analyse why blogs have become so big those past years for a while now, and well it’s like trying to analyse a joke : it ruins it). I am not trying to spread a message through my outfit pictures (if just be yourself and enjoy) but I am hoping to inspire you guys in a way or another and to make you travel through the pictures you see! That is also why I am so addicted to blogs, I read so many of them and keep going back all the time because it is a little escape to another world, an opened window to someone’s world which I believe is so fascinating. So blogging isn’t very… deep, if I may say so, well at least not in my perspective though there are of course various aspects which are so interesting to learn about. It is actually quite a simple concept but you know, sometimes it’s the most simple things that bring us the biggest pleasure and joy.
James and I have spent our friday at the Edelweiss showroom in Geneva, after a long drink with some lovely swiss bloggers, we had the chance to walk through the various floors of the Tiffany hotel and discover some amazing swiss designers. So as you might understand, there were no guest staying in the rooms which were used as a little shoowroom for each brand who presented their pieces. It was such a great opportunity for me since it is always quite difficult to discover swiss fashion labels : and I can tell you. I got some serious crushes. Especially on the brands Blackpool, Avinas and Bahina Jewels. I will make sure to talk to you about those a little more in some future articles. We had such a pleasure to attend this year’s Edelweiss showroom, it was a great experience. After that, we headed to the Open Fashion Night party in Lausanne, organised by the Open magasine, where we could enjoy a lovely evening with some friends. For the occasion I had to choose an outfit that would work for the day and the night, and let’s say that most of my outfits fit for both so it wasn’t very difficult. My tip however would be to take two pair of shoes with you if you want to switch quickly from a day to a night outfit, plus add a touch of bold lipstick for the party and you’re done. I have chosen a Three Floor white dress matched to a Minusey blazer and the killing detail : my new Lulu Frost Offshore necklace which I am so obcessed with. You guys must have been tired of seeing my Zara green statement necklace, well now I am going to stalk you with this one! I got it through Caratime, they have such amazing jewerly pieces, this one clearly stood out to me and I couldn’t wait to wear it.
