If you can remember, not last week, but the week before, i travelled to London and then to Paris. Today i finally show you more in details what i did. I visited two of the Chic Outlet Villages, Bicester Village close to London and then La Vallée Village, close to Paris.

At Bicester Village (one hour from London with the Bicester Village bus. All information about since on the website), we assisted of the opening of the very first Harper’s Bazaar pop-up shop. In the store, they sell very british product. I mean by this that they sell in the store bags, books, candles, and other gift oriented products from UK based brands like Espa and Miller Harris with 30% OFF.

Reduced products by the way, is the concept of all Chic Outlet Villages. Those villages are not outlets like we know them. You won’t find there tones of products in a single huge hall.

The Chic Outlet Villages are made of small boutiques. Each brands has its own boutique that looks exactly like the original ones. So that you really have a nice shopping experience.

After Bicester Village, close to London, i went to La Vallée Village, close to Paris (35 minutes from the center of Paris. On the website you can book a return with a shuttle) and there they had for example an art exhibition in centre of the village so that you can escape from a while from your shopping trip. There they promote the work of young designers like Janaina who does clothes and accessoires made of feathers. I was really impress!!

I did some shopping and i could shop the last collection (fall/winter 2012) of brands like Givenchy, Céline, Lacoste, etc but as well as of lots of french brands I do love like Claudie Pierlot, Zadig & Voltaire, the Kooples, Comptoir des cotonniers, Maje, Sandro etc, for a very nice price. Sometimes off to 60%. Perfect, since even if it is last season, the products are very good quality and for a lot timeless so that it is a good investition.

PS : If you don’t plan a trip to Paris or London soon, there is a Chic Outlet close to Munich : Ingolstadt Village and close to Francfort : Wertheim Village.

After so much snow last week in paris the sun has finally come back and in the sun it’s hot enough to wear only a light jacket.

You know this jacket already, i wore it with a brown short back in Milan. This is time i decided to wear it with a simple black jeans and vintage shoes i found in New York back in February. The jacket anyway is such an eye-catcher that there is no need to wear tones of accessories or other eye-catcher pieces.

What do you think of the look?

I am wearing :
Jacket : Zara
Black jeans : Cheap Monday via Coutie.de
Shoes : Vintage
Sunglasses : Vintage
Armband : Gogo Philip

Bisou,

I am wearing :

Jeans : Cheap Monday via Coutie.de

Milan definitely is a bit warmer than New York and much more than Berlin so I though i could wear a more colorful outfit for my very first day at Milan Fashion Week where I went to see the Gucci show. Never though this would happen one day it’s such an honor!

At the end i think that I looked a bit like Jackie Kennedy. Wich is not a bad reference i dare to think.

I am wearing :
Pink Coat : Zara
Print Pants : Zara
Shoes : Mang (Spring 2012)
Necklace : H&M

What do you think of the look?

So this is what i wore today, for my first show at New York Fashion Week (very 70′s with my Kaleidoskop print Dress) : Nicholas K. I wore my coat off just for the picture of course as it is freezing!!! And this is just the beginning as they say the biggest snow storm New York have ever seen will arrive on Friday :S

Anyway with 2 pair of tights and by swapping my heels with my Ugg Boots for sightseeing everything is ok.

Late i will try to post my impression of my first day of fashion week. But now I am off to the La Perla Presentation.

I am wearing :
Hat : Vintage

Oh boring you probably think. “She’s got a tiger sweater months after everyone has got one”. I know and the reason why is that i didn’t want to have a Kenzo Look a like sweater with a tiger on it. This one looked so cute though that i finally decided to buy it. Fashion victim! I am, in this case, so sorry for that.

Hope you like the look though.

I am wearing :
Striped Sweater with Tiger : Zara
Beanie : Zara
Leggings : Zara ( 2011)
Shoes : ASOS

Those picture have been taken in Paris yesterday where i decided to go to visit my family on thursday afternoon. I have ben very!! spontan, i decided to leave for paris at 3PM and took my flight at 6PM with only one leggings, 2 pair of shoes and 2 sweater. Going back to Berlin today where i will stay 2 days and then leave for NYC!!!! So happy!!

Anyway, som of you wanted me to give you some Paris Tips so I will just do a list of things I’ve done the last three days here. Next time more, and this time I will try to do some pictures.

-I went to my favorite shop : Les Envahisseurs, 57 rue de Rivoli, Paris 75001 (This is where i buy 90% of the clothes that are written “from a local store in Paris).
-I went to do vintage shopping : rue de la Verrerie you will find a few stores like Kilo Shop (my favorite), Free’p'star (take some time to go there there are a lot of good and bad things), Vintage Bar
-I went to the grocery (the best to find the top of french food) : La Grande Epicerie de Paris, 38 Rue de Sèvres, 75007 Paris
-I had a coffee with Vicky from The Golden Bun at a lovely place I don’t remember the name but as an alternative i recommend you to go to the Georges. A bit expensive (go for a coffee not to eat) but the view over Paris is beautiful :Le Georges, Centre Pompidou, 75004, Paris.

If you want to book an hotel i would recommend to go on this site, and would recommand to book a room in the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 11 or 14 district. I can’t tell you any hotel though as i never stayed in a hotel in Paris… Those districts are nice and there is a lot of stuff to do : sightseeing, shopping and restaurant. Also those district are safe with I think is always important when abroad. My favorite is the 11, there a a lot of nice bars there. 1. (Where concept store Colette is) and 9. (Galeries Lafayette and Printemps are very close) are really good for shopping also. You can learn more about the districts here!

Hope this is a little helpful.
