Working doesn't need to be boring

Cardigan - Josef, Blazer - Zara, Pants -Banana Republic, Shoes - Enzo Angliolini, Jewelry -  Christoff Moreau Jewelery ( earrings; custom made rings and bangles and Agatha watch.

Sometimes you gotta work, and dressing up for work is not always easy. I like to be creative with my outfits for work, the dullness of the building urges me to do so. It definitely changes from the black pants and the white button shirt!

Silk meets leather

Pants - BCBG Max Azria
Blouse: Forever 21
Cardigan - Wilfred
Belt - BCBG Max Azria
Shoes - Calvin Klein
Jewelery - Custom made bracelets and Agatha watch
Nails - DYI Valentine's Day Inspired ombré nails  

I love BCBG MaxAzria. I realize half of my wardrobe is form BCBG. I'm not complaining, but I'm realizing I may be addicted to this brand. I just find the clothes so modern and classic with a twist, just enough twist for me (You may have noticed that my style is not extravagant, I like classical and sophisticated pieces. Every clothes just fit so well and I don't get tired of them as much as others.... But, I wish I was more adventurous sometimes, I just fear I wouldn't be able to pull off an outfit a bit our of my comfort zone. But you know what I'll try, and go over that "fear" because everybody and every style has to evolve!

Valentine's day inspired ombré nails tutorial

1. Apply a dark base colour, I used Nicole by O.P.I in Razzle Dazzle (It's basically black!), apply a second coat for really opaque nails.
2. Apply one coat of bright pink starting from the base of the nail to half or 1/4 of the tip, leaving some black on the tip. I used Chanel in No. 217 Splendeur. Absolutely love this colour! 
3. Top it off with some glitter! I've put it all over my nails. Once this coat of glitter is dry, apply another coat stopping right after the coat of pink, to cover the division between the pink and the black. I used Nicole by O.P.I in Rent A Magenta (Sold out)
4. With a Q-tip and nail polish remover, take off any nail polish around your nails.
5. Finally, put a transparent top coat, so you nails stay nice as long as possible! I've used Revlon Multi-care base and top coat (Any good top coat will do!).

Et voilà! hope you enjoyed!

These days I dream of Africa...

Gold Earrings for rings in braid

I've been dreaming of Africa these past days, or actually just warm countries in general. I live in Canada, and the temperature here is killing me. It feels good to put some "exotic" accessories in not-so-exotic country! MC xo.

All day I dream about... the art of layering

Inspiration. I've come across this video, part of the LEAF series (from fellow blogger Geri Hirsch). This is a great discovery. These videos are really well done!
