Oooh, il fait chaud!

Yesterday was the warmest day in months, and seems that it's gonna be the same today, yay! So to celebrate, I'm not wearing any leggings! What a nice way to start the week, innit?!

The little Mermaid

I'm naughty. I know. But yesterday, on a "no particular need or desire to buy anything, but let's go for a walk in town" I popped into
Delilah (expensive shop) in Lewes, just because there is a sale at the moment. Of course I was counting on that lovely encounter. They where there, at the back of the shop, on their own... Aren't these Repetto shoes crazy??? Their price was craaaaazy too (crazily cheap:)! I thought it would be so sad to leave them....


The box is so lovely!

I think they'll go well with my dress for Melissa's wedding....

Bridesmaid dress #3

I finally got to load that picture up. I think, was too heavy for blogger... So here is Ms Cuttie dress! What do you think?

I rarely plan my outfits in advance, but yesterday evening, speaking of The Magnificent Seven I felt inspired by Mexican customs. I especially like the uncommon look of Frida Kahlo.

Bon week-end!

Magnificent One

I've always been swinging between the "girly-girl" and the "tomboy". As a child, my favorite film was The Magnificent Seven. My tomboy side dreamt of wild rides on the Mexican frontier, but my girly-girl side was madly/deeply in love with Steve McQueen a.k.a Vin. Isn't he gorgeous in his pink shirt? Max and I watched a bit of the movie yesterday, and ahhh, my love is still intact...

Change, change, change...

I changed the design of the blog,
needed some refreshment I think...
Hope you like it!

J'ai changé la présentation du blog,
j'avais besoin d'un coup de balais.
J'espère que ça vous plaît!

Bridesmaid dress #2

I wanted to find the perfect vintage 50's dress for my friend's wedding. I've been looking for a year, and even if there are lots of lovely shops in Brighton, I couldn't find a dress of the right shape, the right colour, but mostly the right size! Three criterias you can't miss ( especially the last one-cna't change your nature)... So, last week, still hunting, I ended up having a look in Zara and "bim", what did I see there on a tiny rail? Mrs cute dress! Good bye 50's glamourous gown and hello cheap romantism...

The Zara dress in the next episode...

New York stay...

Heya! Did I say that Isolde (my sister-in-law) and I are going to New York in september??? It's the first time and I'm so excited that I can't believe I still have 3 months to go! Anyway, we booked our accomodation today: we'll be staying in a lovely couple's loft in Brooklyn-the Jefferson street area. I can't wait to have walk in Maria Hernandez park...

I tricked you!

Yesterday, Max and I spent the day together. " Is it true Nina?" ( that I had roasted lizard for lunch...). Now, even if I AM serious, he doesn't believe a word I say, " Noooo, you jokin'!"

Where is Summer???

Really, everyone on the blogosphere is going on about summer: summer dresses, summer wishlists, picnics, holidays.... but here, in East Sussex, United Kingdom, it is raining! No, it's more like changeable weather. For example, this morning when I woke up at 7, it was all sunny and blue. By the time I got dressed and ready to do school run, it started to rain, a bit, then a lot. No time to get changed, so here I was, 8.30, outside in the drizzle, in my ballet pumps!
