I could be rainy days, a book that ends with no last page

Dress: Choies
Coat: Buy here
Bag: Buy here 
Creepers: OASAP

There are some days, when even the rain and definitely not so April's weather outside, which threatens to ruin my lovely hairstyle,  can not stop me to be gentle, elegant and look like a real lady. Exactly how I feel. So, a simple, but trendy dress in a pastel color, a comfortable coat in an interesting design and an insanely beautiful bag, which gives a character and chic to the whole outfit, happened to be my saviors in a situation like that.

Speaking about the bag, I want to make something straight. Firstly, it's a replica. Secondly, I would never suspect that, if I didn't know it because the quality, design and fabrics are more than incredible. You can look for yourself by visiting this site and order a bag like mine. You have my word.

The truth is that some time ago, I was against people, who are interested in fashion (like me) or any other kind of art, to invest in imitations and so to support this market. Then, at a certain point, I've realized that my theory was absolutely meaningful or at least really impractical and besides that I don't contribute anything good with my moral point of view, I also cut my chances of feeling good. I mean, it's not my fault that I wasn't born in a palace and I can not afford (at this stage) the Carrie Bradshaw's closet or Blair Waldorf's shoes, but that doesn't mean I can not look exactly as I want to and that I can not have what I wish for. In my own way. Fashion is art just like any other arts, so anyone who wants to "touch" it, should be able to do it. No matter what his financial status is.


Има дни, в които дори дъждът навън и упоритото определено не-априлско време, застрашаващо прическата ми, не могат да ме спрат да бъда нежна, елегантна и да изглеждам като истинска дама. Точно както се чувствам. Семпла рокля в пастелен цвят, удобно палто с интересна кройка и безумно красива чанта, придаваща шик и характер на тоалета, ми се притичат на помощ в моменти като този.

Като стана въпрос за чантата, бързам да уточня нещо. Първо, реплика е. Второ, никога не бих заподозряла, че е такава, ако не знаех, защото качеството, моделът и материята са повече от невероятни. 

Преди време имах против това хората като мен, занимаващи се с мода или какъвто и да е било друг вид изкуство, да инвестират в имитации, подкрепяйки този пазар. В някакъв определен момент обаче осъзнах, че теорията ми е глупава или по-скоро ужасно непрактична и освен, че не допринасям за нищо хубаво с моралната си гледна точка, сама режа шансовете си да се чувствам добре. Имам в предвид, не е моя вината, че не съм се родила в дворец и не мога да си позволя (на този етап) стаята-дрешник на Кари Брадшоу или обувките на Блеър Уолдорф, но това не означава, че не мога да изглеждам точно както си искам и да имам това, което искам да имам. По мой си начин. Модата е изкуство точно както всяко друго и всеки, който пожелае, трябва да може да се докосне до нея. Независимо от финансовото му състояние или който и да е било друг възпрепятстващ фактор.

Breakfast with Mademoiselle S: Who said men can't be stylish?!

Source: iamgala.com archive


Good Morning, MS team! Are you ready for the next fashion dose from me? We're gonna talk today about men and style.
The thing is that I keep getting receive more and more questions about why I don't write anything concerning men's fashion, but the truth is ... I have never really thought about the fact that I have a male audience, as well. So, with all apologies for my improvidence, I'm gonna share with you some outfit ideas today, suitable for men's casual style, which I personally find really attractive. 
Let's get started from left to right: 

1. Mix of shirt + contrasting sweater and jeans / pants in the same color as the shoes
This is probably my favorite combination because it's universal, always successful and screaming style (and sex), everytime you look at it. You just can't go wrong with that mix, if you follow the color's advice, written above.

2. Sexy business style - represented here by a blazer and shirt, classic trousers and sport shoes - so perfect and powerful in its negligence and brilliance at the same time that if I were a man, I would probably dress like that all the time. Well, I' m not sure if you guys do realize how sexy we womеn find you in suits and how badly we fall for the business men's look. 

3. Bad boy (blazer, shirt, tie!, jeans, boots and backpack) - when boots can be replaced by sneakers - that is actually the youth version of the sexy businessman and it's perfect for an everyday's school or university outfit.

4. The last two outfits, pictured above, are pretty much identical, but on what I want to emphasize here is the beanie, which is my favorite unisex accessory so far. It's small, cute and at the same time gives charm and completion to every look. Should I mention how hot I find guys, who wear beanies?! 


Tons of love and chocolate rabbits for everyone and Happy Monday, fashionistas!


Добро утро, MS team, в днешната модна закуска ще си говорим за... мъже. И за стил. 
Напоследък все по-често получавам въпроси защо не пиша нищо, касаещо силния пол, а истината е, че... просто не съм се замисляла върху факта, че имам и мъжка аудитория. Така че с извинения за непредвидливостта ми, днес съм ви селектирала няколко аутфит идеи, подходящи за мъжки ежедневен стайлинг, които лично аз намирам за наистина ефектни.
Започваме от ляво надясно:

1. Микс от риза + контрастен пуловер и дънки/панталон в цвят на обувките 
Това вероятно е любимата ми комбинация, защото е универсална, винаги успешна, и крещяща СТИЛ (и сексапил), откъдето и да я погледнеш. Няма как да сбъркаш при нея, ако просто следваш формулата в цветовете, написана по-горе.

2. Секси бизнес визията - представена тук от сако и риза, класически панталон и спортни обувки - е толкова перфектна и въздействаща в своята небрежност и същевременно гениалност, че ако бях мъж, вероятно, щях да се обличам така постоянно. Имам в предвид, не съм сигурна дали вие, момчета, го осъзнавате, но костюмираните мъже ни действат по особено специален начин на нас, жените.

3. Лошото момче (сако, риза, вратовръзка!, дънки, кубинки и раница), като кубинките могат да бъдат заменени от гуменки със същия успех, е всъщност младежката версия на сексапилния бизнесмен и е изключително подходяща за ежедневен училищен или университетски аутфит. 

4. Последните два тоалета на снимката по-горе са сравнително идентични, но това, върху което искам да акцентирам тук, е шапката, тип бийни (от английски beanie), която напоследък е любимият ми унисекс аксесоар. Защото е малка, симпатична и придаваща чар, и завършеност на всяка една визия...
 Има ли смисъл да споменавам колко много харесвам момчета, носещи такъв тип шапки? Така че ДА, носете (постоянно)! 


И така, това е от мен за сега, обич и шоколадови зайци за всички, и Честит Понеделник!

Soldier Girl

Army Jacket: Choies
Jeans: Bershka
Cheese Top: Choies
Combat boots: Eram.fr


 I've never realized how perfect is the combination between combat boots and army jacket till now. But, actually, I've never really been an owner of this type of jacket before, when a few days ago, I found this ultra gorgeous item in (well, maybe my favorite online store so far) - ChoiesAnd I'm so happy because every year when spring comes in the town, with its crazy weather - cold mornings and super hot afternoons - I can not decide what to wear as a topcoat. My favorite leather jacket is just not that appropriate, because it weighs in my bag when I need to take it off at noon. The case is the same with my trench coat. And I can not even put a vest, unless I'm wearing  a shirt with long sleeves or a sweater underneath, but it's actually not a good choice because, as we well know, at noon the weather is getting hot.
  So, yeah, now I'm so proud with my perfect buying - the prettiest army jacket in the world.

Love and military jackets for everyone!


Никога не съм осъзнавала колко перфектна е комбинацията между кубинки и подобен тип 'военно' яке. Но и всъщност... никога досега не съм била притежателка на такъв модел яке, докато преди няколко дни не открих този убийствено прекрасен екземпляр в (май напоследък любимия ми онлайн магазин) Choies. И сега съм щастлива, защото всяка година, когато сезонът е пролетно-летен (поне тук във Франция в момента е така) - и сутрин е хладно, а на обяд супер топло - не мога да реша каква връхна дреха да облека. Любимото ми кожено яке просто не е подходящо, защото тежи в чантата, като се наложи да го съблечеш на обяд, когато температурите клонят към 25 градуса. Шлиферът също. А с елек сутрин е студено, освен ако не си с дълъг ръкав... с който, пък, на обяд ти става горещо.
Но сега съм горд притежател на най-удобния (и очарователен) модел яке, който съществува, с надписи Milano, Paris и New York на гърба. 

Обич и военни якета за всички!

Breakfast with Mademoiselle S: Walk in Lyon

This Monday our fashion breakfast will take place in Lyon, where I will walk you through the following lines. So hurry up, MS team, go get a huge cup of coffee and let the adventure begin.

The date is Monday, April 7. It's almost 09.30 at the morning and
 I'm running wildly around the appartement, as I did not get out of the bed just 15 minutes ago, jump over my clothes, which are all over the floor, in trying to find my camera's battery, that seems to have been lost forever somewhere in all this chaos. 'I'll arrange everything once I get back home' - I promise to myself, when I finally find it, buried under piles of white papers on the table, thrust it quickly into my bag, switch off the laptop and go out.     

10 minutes into the tram and we finally come to the small vintage station, which reminds me of those beautiful stations that you can see only in the black and white romantic movies.

'Do you have something to cover these cups?' - I ask the confused seller at Paul, while fluorishing my coffee cup in front of his eyes. He looks at my face even more confused, and maybe slightly annoyed, and turns his back on me just to come back half a minute later with two white caps. 'Jeez, what a freak!' - I tell to my friend and we both burst out laughing. 


The road from my town to Lyon is about 40 minutes by train. Perfect timing to discuss enthusiastically the program of the day, me to get a little bit sick because of the travelling (ugh, I can't stand trains, buses and cars), and finally to realize that none of us knows the city. Anyway, we both have modern phones with GPS functions, so there is nothing to worry about.

Our first stop turns out to be the Mall. Don't blame me, guys, the huge building has been built next to the train station, so you can not just pass by. Well, not if you're a real fashionista! 

After about an hour walking around the stores, we decide that it's time to embark on an adventure and to find out how to get to the center of the city. The weather is fantastic - sunny, but not warm, slightly windy, but not cold, just perfect for a walk. And for a coffee, as well. 

After getting off the bus number 9, we step towards to the first place, blocked our way. I'm not pretty sure that our choice is good enough because at first glance it seems that there is no free tables and there reigns such a chaos, so I'm truly surprised when finally, 10 minutes after we sit, some random, middle-aged and really fat man, with a gray shirt, black pants and tie, comes to take our order.     

After the coffee break, we continue with the walk. I hope to take some streetstyle photos along the way, but people are so boring and disappointing in their choice of clothes, that my enthusiasm almost goes away. Almost.  

The truth is that Lyon has never really impressed me. Neither with its architecture nor with its infrastructure, nor with the people who can be seen on the streets. Don't get me wrong, the city is nice. It's just... not my kind of city, I guess. Somehow I don't feel the french touch in it. Everything is super colorful for me, devoid of aesthetics. I don't like the lack of style of people who cross the streets, as much as I don't like the mix of ultra modern and very old buildings in one place. Lyon is like one of those masterpieces of great artists that our professor of art history hotly analyze, and I just look stupidly and can't get it.

Walking around, we pass the both big rivers, or at least I think so, but geography and orientation have never been my strengths, so we can not be sure. Anyways, it's so beautiful.

Grandma once told me that around the rivers there are some special ions, which have a good effect on your aura, or something like that. I like the idea, it sounds to me magically, so I hope that is true. If I haven't had a sea sickness, we could even get a boat - a bit closer to the water and our new auras. However, I have a sea sickness, so sailing is not exactly my kind of entertainment, I guess.

After an hour walking around the river side, we become thirsty again, but this time for something cold. And fortunately, a small cafe with casually arranged tables and chairs and a cold strawberry milkshake - seem to be the solution of all my problems. As you see, we're not exactly that kind of tourists who go around tirelessly for hours without even thinking of rest. Nope. We love sitting, talking, (no matter that we do this constantly, even when we have classes), looking at the people on the street and discussing their looks, while drinking our fruit frappés, hot coffees, cold cocktails and smoothies. This is our way of dealing with stress and tension. Our way to be happy. 

So, the day in Lyon ends with a fastly made ​​Subway by an extremely sulk, young french seller and after that a breathless running up the escalator at the station because: 'Attention, passengers, the train to St. Etienne leaves in two minutes."


...


 Thanks to all who stayed with me till the end of the story and have a wonderful week, babes!




БЪЛГАРСКИ ТЕКСТ - ТУК!

Geekish Wednesday bro'

Skirt: H&M
Top: Jennyfer
Beanie: Similar
Creepers: OASAP

Finally I got the shoes I've been dreaming for sooo long. Many thanks to OASAP. The creepers are super cute, but also extremely comfortable, which actually is the fact impressed me the most about them. 
To look casual and chic at the same time is not so hard when you find the perfect pair of shoes, that combines perfectly with almost everything. 
Lots of love from me and Happy Wednesday, babes!


И най-сетне се сдобих с този така отдавна желан от мен модел обувки - creepers. Те, от своя страна, за огромна моя радост, освен страшно сладурски се оказаха и неприлично удобни. Благодаря на прекрасния онлайн магазин OASAP, намалил цената им почти на половина, за да се озоват право в гардероба ми. 
Да изглеждаш casual и същевременно шик е супер лесно, когато откриеш перфектния чифт обувки, съчетаващ се идеално с почти всичко.
Обич и целувки от мен, честита сряда!

xoxo,

Mademoiselle S.
