Last week I spent few days in my beloved South. It had a wonderful time as always. At last I could feel the sun and the heat on my skin (NOT exaggerating) and I was lucky enough to be able to wear a bikini, lay by the pool, and do absolutely nothing but read a good book! I wanted to come back to Paris with some colorful pictures to give the blog a little summer feeling.
Now let me introduce you a fellow blogger. This talented, smart and beautiful woman is the voice behind Le chat et moi on est content. She writes about life, love, guys, good and bad moods… basically you’ll find the answer to all the female questions you’re asking yourself daily. She’s an excellent writer; it’s bitter and humoristic, light but not shallow. There is a good dose of girly, a statement against bad guys, and mostly pride of being who you are no matter what other think. That’s the spirit! We took some pictures in the street of Aix-en-Provence, little nest where we met and place of many crazy nights. Now she lives in Lyon and recently she regained her freedom after spending 3 years on her thesis. She’s tough! And brave. Congratulations Doctor(love)!

La semaine dernière je me suis accordée une pause dans le sud que j’aime tant et comme toujours c’était fantastique. Pour la première fois j’ai senti le soleil et la chaleur sur ma peau (PAS du tout exagéré) et j’ai même eu la chance de pouvoir me mettre en maillot, larver au bord de la piscine, et ne faire absolument rien si ce n’est lire un bon bouquin ! Je tenais quand même à rentrer à Paris avec quelques photos colorées pour donner une touche d’été à mon blog.
Maintenant laissez-moi vous présenter une autre bloggeuse. Cette femme talentueuse, belle et intelligente est la voix qui se cache derrière Le chat et moi on est content. Elle écrit à propos de la vie, de l’amour, des mecs, des bonnes et des mauvaises humeurs… bref vous y trouverez les réponses à toutes ces questions de meuf que vous vous posez tous les jours. Elle a une très bonne plume ; c’est amer et humoristique, léger mais pas superficiel. Il y a une bonne dose de girly, un coup de gueule contre les mauvais garçons (pour ne pas dire les connards) et surtout un sentiment de fierté: soyez vous-même peu importe ce qu’en pensent les autres. Bon esprit ! Nous avons pris quelques photos dans les rues d’Aix-en-Provence, ce petit nid ou nous nous sommes rencontrées et un surtout (un lieu de débauche absolue) ou nous avons longuement aperoté en refaisant le monde. A présent elle vit a Lyon et elle a récemment retrouvé sa liberté après trois ans passés sur sa thése. Elle est courageuse ! Félicitations Docteur(love) !

Have you ever asked yourself who made your clothes? Portugal, Romania, Cyprus, Mauritius, Ethiopia, India, Bangladesh, China… Yes, fashion is a huge industry that contributes in many countries’ economy. If you were to boycott fast fashion, many people would suffer from it. But they already do. Workers in clothing factories are doing countless and underpaid hours in bad conditions. Last year, a factory collapsed in Bangladesh and killed 1135 people but mostly destroyed the life of many families. This is why Fashion Revolution wants to raise awareness about the reality of the industry and make people conscious of where the clothes they buy so cheap really come from. I won’t lie, I love buying new clothes often and this means I feed myself with fast fashion more than I should. But I believe that these brands could make things change. They have the power to make the supply chain evolve and benefits to everybody. For their image and for the people that work so hard to provide tones of garments every week all over the world. On Fashion Revolution Day, take your clothes #insideout and ask brands “who made your clothes” ? @fash_rev

Vous êtes-vous déjà demandé qui a fabriqué vos vêtements ? Portugal, Roumanie, Chypre, Ile Maurice, Éthiopie, Inde, Bangladesh, Chine… Oui la mode est une immense industrie qui contribue à l’économie de nombreux pays. Si vous veniez à boycotter les marques de fast fashion, beaucoup en soufreraient. Mais c’est déjà le cas. Les ouvriers des usines de textile travaillent sans relâche, des heures interminables, sous-payés et dans de mauvaises conditions. L’an dernier, une usine s’est effondrée au Bangladesh. Bilan : 1135 morts mais surtout des familles détruites, laissées à l’abandon sans aucune compensation des marques. C’est pourquoi Fashion Revolution lève le rideau sur la réalité de cette industrie et veut faire prendre conscience d’où viennent vraiment les vêtements que vous achetez à un prix défiant tout concurrence. Je ne vais pas mentir, j’adore acheter souvent des nouveautés et cela veut dire que je me nourris de fast fashion plus qu’il n’en faudrait. Mais j’ai la certitude que ces marques peuvent faire changer les choses. Elles ont le pouvoir de faire évoluer la chaîne de distribution et en faire bénéficier tous ces acteurs. Pour leur image et pour les individus qui travaillent si dur pour fournir des tonnes de vêtements toutes les semaines partout dans le monde. On Fashion Revolution Day, portez vos vêtements à l’envers #insideout et demandez aux marques “who made your clothes” ? @fash_rev

It happens in Paris that it is not always raining but now and then, the sun comes out and might actually shine for several days in a row. During those rare and exceptional moments, you must go out and enjoy the sun like a blessing, a reward for the long waiting months of previous shitty weather. Paris suddenly bursts and you realize how many people actually live inside the city (and in the near areas). It becomes a true hive of activity and suddenly you starts regretting those times when you were almost walking “alone” in the streets, may it rain! You are all aware of the high pollution state we reached last week. It was everywhere in the news, the city was compared to Shanghai and some quick measures were taken before the elections (happening today) to show the good example: free public transports for 4 days and one day of alternating traffic. What an environmental breakthrough! Anyway, my friend and I decided to meet for a picnic at Champs de Mars, just by the Eiffel Tower because sometimes we forget that we actually live in a wonderfully rich city, just thinking about the architecture and history. I love the Eiffel Tower, every time I see it I get sentimental! I just got a new bike (because the last one got stolen) and a brand new pair of Swedish Hasbeens clogs and I thought it was the perfect day to take them out for a ride (not particularly comfortable to bike with those but never mind!) The jacket/teddy/bomber, however you want to call it, is an unexpected finding from Bershka in Berlin. It was so incredibly on sale that I felt obligated to buy it. Plus I’ve always wanted a cool teddy. And it says “Junior” in the back. And it is my favorite color! The t-shirt and jeans are from Top Shop in Israel (shopping is always part of my travels!). I love the high-waisted/90’s style of the MOM jeans. You might have recognized the velvet sunnies from previous post, the perfect pair of Italian sunglasses I found during my exchange study in Rome (good times). And the cute little socks are from H&M. Always wearing socks with my clogs!

This is my first winter street style and I have to say that it is much harder for me to dress when it’s cold. I absolutely hate layers and other turtle neck, makes me feel completely trapped, I can’t breathe with that thing! Anyway as you can see I am not wearing much and my ankle are even sockless, not very cosy when it’s cold especially now in Paris but it is not my fault if fashion has suddenly decided that pants should be shorter! I bought this cool jean overall at Monki together with the black & white crop sweater that actually brought me much comments from people: YES/NO you know… big hesitation! But I decided that this year must be the one of ACTION! No hesitation anymore, just do it, make a statement! So I am wearing that big gold chain necklace bought at Asos I absolutely fall in love with because it is the perfect size! “Statement necklace”. The fake sheep lookking coat is from H&M and again, big crush. I visited all H&M in Paris to find the right size with the right color. Freak? When I want something… I get it right! Just like this cute bag of the French brand My Suelly. A girl was selling it on a fair for a very interesting price. But I had no money whatsoever at that time. But didn’t want to give away that opportunity so I asked her number and as soon as I got the money, called her back and it was MINE! Determination! #fashionfreak. Finally the New Balance sneakers I found in Maastricht last week, there were on Sale and well I don’t have a pair so I needed one right? Plus the brand has a “endorsed by no one” policy, they want their shoes to be recognized for their quality and not by this special someone wearing it. Good point. We did this photo shoot with Marion, we had much fun as always with her. I missed those good times… even though it was raining like hell! Looking forward SPRING again!

You already know about Marion and her passion for jewels and little details that would transform any outfit into a colorful, happy ensemble. Last time she impressed me, once again, because her bracelets matched perfectly her necklaces. As well as her jacket that was in the exact same tone of her pants which, put all together, creates a beautiful fashion harmony. There is nothing to add, she is radiant. Now you can go through the links of all her findings and get your own piece of jewelry!
