Everything is in the sole!

It is always good to keep in touch with former High School mates. Some become doctors, others, teachers and there is Fleur Linet who created her own shoe brand LbyO. Obviously, at first sight, her shoes are classy four-inch-high stilettos. But the real invention and creativity of the brand is to engrave a poetic sentence (in gold!) within the sole. Who said that fashion cannot be witty? LbyO engraves poetic sentences from Baudelaire and by doing so creates a bridge between fashion and literature.

LbyO didn’t go unnoticed for long. The two designers Fleur and Marie did a great job in order to make the brand known and it is quite a success. One day, I just opened Grazia and I was so stunned to see a picture of Fleur giving marks about stars’ looks.

Mystery and seduction are the motto of the brand. These shoes are such a good way to attract the eye of handsome guys in the street. The golden sentence will flicker as you walk. And soon, you’ll feel just like Cinderella waiting for the prince to put the glass slipper on your foot.

So if you want to wear a shie that has Parisian elegance, trust me the LbyO shoes are for you. And I can assure you that they are very comfy (true story I love Converse and I hardly never wear high heels but with those you can run the New York marathon without blisters!).

So listen up guys! You want to propose to your fiancé in a ver...


Le Corner des Créateurs (Paris) Le Corner des Créateurs:Heaven for quirky and beautiful jewelry!

For those who want to play it safe (like me) the Blonde or Modasse necklace is perfect. For those who have a complete faith in themselves they can choose either Emmerdeuse or Cagole !

Even Lady Gaga's fans are not forgotten! If you want to be as close as possible to Lady Gaga you can wear her around you neck!

For those of you who like classy and graphic jewelry, le Corner also proposes less crazy jewelry.

So if you come to Paris run to one of the shops of the Corner des Créateurs in Rue de Lappe. After having done some shopping you can party in a bar because this street is known as the core of Paris night life.



Barbie is back !

You may be an adult and still love Barbie !

I put my Barbie castle away a long time ago but I can't forget how great this doll is! So, you can't even picture my joy when I found Margaux Lange's work online. She is actually recycling some parts of Barbies in order to transform them into GORGEOUS jewelry. If you want to live your childhood again and be trendy at the same time go to her website http://www.margauxlange.com

Her creations are full of humor. Why offer a ring to propose when you can buy this beautiful necklace in which Barbie says yes to Ken?

You can also wear Ken's abs on your finger (how cool is that??).

Some people says she is mutilating Barbie but I rather think she is giving a second chance to our toys instead of leaving them in an attic.

And for those who think that Barbie is a toy for girls let me tell you that she also creates some double cuffs for you guys!

If you are curious or seeking a gift that will stand out of the crowd, Margaux Lange's jewelry is worth seeing!


Wind-up watches VS Battery powered watches

Sleeves are getting shorter and shorter as the spring season proceeds. Time to show off your watch! Especially for men.Before you go straight up for watch shopping, let me remind you some pros and cons of wind-up watches and battery powered ones.

Wind-up watches

1.Wind-up watches are automatic, using your body’s energy to recharge. However, for those who aren’t so active, you’ll need to have a second thought. 2.Heavier and thicker. Whether you are okay with it or not, it depends on your taste. 3.Overhauls are necessary at least for every 5 years. 4.Old fashioned classic charm

Battery powered watches

1.Time can be more precise since it works regularly.2.Inner structure of the watch is simple.No need for frequent overhauls.3.You need to replace the battery for at least every 2~3 years. If you don’t,it can cause a leak of lachrymal fluid that can corrode the inner parts.4.Thinner and lighter. You can also expect more variety in designs
