She is a true fashionable Parisian. She was born in St-Brieuc (Bretagne, France). After a Franco-British double management degree, she developed her professional skills in the field of communication, working for major luxury groups as a PR officer. Passionate about fashion, she decided to give her professional career another turn and started working for a women ready-to-wear and accessories buyer position for a French digital boutique called MyBeautifulDressing.com to finally get more freedom to express her fashion tastes.
How do you feel about Paris & Parisian people? Although I love to travel, I have to say Paris is of all cities the one I like the most. First of all it is home to me, but it is also so beautiful that I have still not visited any city that can compete with its beauty. Parisians are a bit grumpy but in the end that is what makes us so special, isn’t it? What does Parisian Flair mean to you? To me, Parisian Flair is mostly something renown internationally. The Parisians are not especially conscious of having a particular fashion sense, I guess our geographical position gives our taste many influences such as Latin, Nordic, Anglo-Saxon… that may be the key to our legendary flair. Are you romantic? What a question? Of course I am, as any real Parisian woman! Living here is inspirational, Paris isn’t called the city of love for nothing.
Your dream? As I like to say, my dream is to, one day, own a Hermes cashmere plaid. It is a way of saying that the day I spend so much money in a “useless” (yet so desirable) item, I guess I will have achieved many things that are far more important and valuable to me and will not be worried about the future anymore. The best gift you ever made and Received? Ever made: I think the best gift was an etching that I bought in a gallery in St-Germain. I got that gift for my boyfriend, I believe it was a special gift and he liked it because it was unexpected. I feel blessed life gave me such an amazing boyfriend, he is the most beautiful gift I received. Told you I was romantic! Your favorite French actor? Louis Garrel is my favorite French actor especially in “Dans Paris”/ “In Paris”, one of my favorite movies.
Your perfume? I have many but always seem to go back to Clair de Musc, Serge Lutens. If you had 3000 euro and you could only buy one fashion item? I would try to get a Chanel jacket although the budget would be a bit small.
If you had 3000 euro and you could buy an entire outfit? I would buy some Stouls leather leggings, a beautiful Leetha cashmere sweater and a sleek Céline white shirt. What is the quintessential French look to you? For a woman: keeping it simple, when dressed casual accentuate the make-up a little bit, red lips for instance, but when up for a smarter look keeping the make-up discrete. For a man: never to audacious, a perfect mix between good old classics and the perfect modern cut and the right fabrics

The capture of each moment of life and each vibration is what human kind fails to admire in a contemporary lifestyle that pushes him […]
