How would you define your style?
A rather classic style, actually, made of lots of basics. I tend not to follow fashion too closely and I often dare to do some associations that are not to everybody's taste.
What's your best memory as a blogger?
At home, it's Christmas everyday! I receive so many parcels of clothes or beauty products. That's rather nice. But without a doubt, what I prefer is press travel, from Argentina to the U.S. or Mauritius or elsewhere...so I would say that my best memory is my life in general over the past few years!
How did you start blogging and what inspires you most?
To start with, when I created my blog four and a half years ago, it was to share things privately. I was posting family pictures, photos from my travels or parties so that my friends and other people of my entourage could see them. And very quickly, after two months, I received comments from strangers asking me to describe what I was wearing. That's why I thought there might be something to do, all the more than I already knew and read some very well designed fashion blogs. I had thought about it before but I didn't really dare doing it. You must have a certain kind of ego to start posting pictures of yourself, posing, describing your outfits, but since it was by popular demand, from people I didn't know at all, it boosted my self-confidence. I launched it, and it went well.
I've never adored anyone or any style in particular. I'm lucky enough to gain interest in anything, a type of architecture as well as a clothing collection or a woman walking on the street. I'm trying to get inspired by everything, as much as I can, even things that could be harmful because there's always something you can get out of it. That being said, music and photography are two areas that influence me very much.
A boutique in Paris you particularly like and you'd like to share with non-French readers?
An address I often recommend to foreigners: the boutique Culotte, Mahler street, in Paris's 4th district. The owners are Japanese and there you can find small jewelry at very affordable prices, vintage clothing of the highest quality and cute designer creations.
Finally, since you seem to know New York well, is there an area there you particularly like for shopping?
Usually I always try to get around Greenwich Village and Soho. I like walking around in those neighborhoods and the feel you get out of it.
