DELPHINE DELAFON HANDBAGS

Delphine Delafon, a French-American designer, launched her Parisian namesake brand in 2011. The brand features one signature model, the bucket bag, available for custom manufacture in any variety of leather and colour combination your imagination can conceive. Each bag is dreamt-up, drawn, and meticulously fashioned in respect to traditional craftsmanship, i.e. handmade by Delafon in her Paris workshop.
New collections are born of the Seasons and the gleaned materials : 3 sizes, 3 chains, boundless materials but only 1 signed and numbered grommet.












LAURENCE DECADE SHOES

On a trip to Paris some time ago, I was amazed by Laurence Decade boutique from the quality of Laurence Decade shoes and the variety of different styles of the shoes. The collection is really fantastic and it is like a sculpture on every pair.
The Fall-Winter 2012-2013 collection plays extremes with tomboy and girly looks, nude and smokey grey colors, extra flat or vertiginous curves, matt or mirror effects...
Over the knee bikers, icy loafers, poetic ballerinas, pop brogues, punk stilletosare the major guests of the season, for an intense, chic and dreamy collection.
And always, on every right heel, a metalic beauty spot, signature of the designer.










WHERE TO GO IN THE MONTH OF JUNE

Making the start of summer in the nothern hemisphere, June brings sunny weather and longer days. This is a good time to explore Europe and the USA, with natural beauty in abundance. 
Winter is starting in the southern hemisphere and the cooler weather makes this ideal for a visit to Australia's Nothern Territory, which can be unebearably hot for much of the year, and Machu Picchu, where the cooler weather is great for hiking.
The Middle East and North Africa are too hot to visit as are many parts of Asia-particularly the Indian subcontinent and southeast-although if you stick to the beach resorts, there should be a cooling sea breeze.
Below, you will find the best destinations to visit in the month of June.
1. BARCELONA, SPAIN, EUROPE.
Top destination for great culture, nightlife and beaches. Something for everyone-art and architecture (Gaudi, Picasso, Miro), shopping and nightlife and, when that gets too much, beaches to relax on.
2. MONTREAL, CANADA, NORTH AMERICA.

HOW TO BE REAL, BE COOL AND...EXPRESS YOURSELF!

Steve Jobs said it best:"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life".
Ready?
The following how-tos will help you be yourself everywhere!
Lesson No.1:
Being yourself does not mean being bitchy.
A lot of self-expression these days seems to be about cutting other people down to build yourself up. Yes, our "inner awful" can be really funny. But in truth, being original and being kind aren't mutual exclusive.
Lesson No.2
You can drop the "I don't care what you think" attitude.
Self-expression means letting go of the "comparathon"-the process of constantly judging yourself by other people's standards. Having said that, if you think being confident requires not giving a flying WTF how other people respond to you, it is time to get real: You do care and always will. And aknowledgeing pain and humility when people hurt you is actually one of the most powerful forms of self-expression out there.
Lesson No.3
Forget…

THE 5 BIG RULES OF STYLE SELF-EXPRESSION

Clothes show who you are on a daily basis. So, how to make them say the right thing? Like this:
1. MAKE EVERY OUTFIT A "YOU OUTFIT.
Your closet should be stocked with things that express your personality. But that means big or small touches, depending on your plans or any given day. Love feeling bold in neon green? Go ahead and buy that crazy-bright shirtdress, but also have a green bangle or a scarf on hand for those days (job interview, brunch with the not-yet-in-laws) when a smaller dose is more appropriate.
2. MIX YOUR PERSONALITIES.
Going straight-up 100 percent power broker (or 100 percent anything head to toe) can come across a little costumey. But a power broker pencil skirt with earthy-girl turquoise earrings you got at a street fair in college? Nice
3. BUY FOR THE BODY YOU HAVE
Not for the one you had at 16 or the one you dream of strutting around in eventually. That girl can buy her own clothes. You deserve yours!
4. EVOLVE...
What's so "you" will, and sh…

7 WAYS TO STREAMLINE YOUR MORNING!

Save time-and stress less-with the following easy tips:
1. ANSWER E-MAILS AT THE OFFICE.
Starting off your day glued to your laptop or phone can tie you up at home. If you do have to respond to urgent e-mails, carve out a certain amount of time for them, and do not get distracted by junk emails.
2. TRY DRY SHAMPOO.
It is quick and help maintain the health of your hair. Daily washing causes your scalp to produce more oil. Applying a dry product refreshes your stands between washes.
3. HAVE A FEW GO-TO OUTFIT OPTIONS READY.
Always keep several clean, wrinkle-free options in your closet. Having a pressed blouse or sheath on reserve saves time when you can't figure out what to wear.
4. KEEP YOUR ALARM CLOCK AT A DISTANCE.
Whether you use a clock or your cell phone, place it across the room. You are more likely to wake up when you have to physically get yourself out of bed. Plus, hitting 'snooze' too often results in a shortened, disrupted sleep cycle.
5. USE YOUR SHOWER TO STE…

10 EASY WAYS TO ...LOOK A SIZE SMALLER!

Whatever your shape, these quick tips and styling tricks will help you create a slimmer, trimmer figure-instantly!
1. CHOOSE FITTED PIECES.
Oversize or baggy pieces often make you appear bigger than you actually are, while superfitted styles can emphasize trouble spots. Tailored body-skimming pieces tend to give the leanest look.
2. SKIP THE PLEATS.
The folded fabric can create unwanted bulk. Stick to pants ans skirts with a flat front if you want to seem slimmer.
3. LOOK FOR VERTICAL DETAILS.
Stripes, seaming and other vertical elements elongate you, while horizontal ones can make you look wider.
4. STICK TO STRUCTURED FABRICS.
Materials like cotton and polyester with no more than 2% spandex will help give you the smoothest silhouette. Avoid superstretchy or thin fabric-they show everything.
5. STAND UP STRAIGHT.
Good posture not only makes you seem taller and leaner, it also makes your clothes fit and look better!
6. GO FOR COOL NECKLINES.
An asymmetrical style or one with a fun co…

STYLING TIPS

I love mix and match kind of style. For this reason, below, I have collected some tips for those who are willing to look like Carrie Bradshaw and create their own fun mix!
1. Work different textures.
It gives your outfit amazing depth in real life. A simple way to do this is by wearing something matte with something shiny, like a knit cardigan over a sequined dress. It is an eye-catching combination that almost always works.
2. Try print-on-print.
It is one of my favorite looks! To get it right, make sure to keep it tonal or in the same color palette. Avoid wearing more than three patterns in multiple colors at once-it will look over the top.
3. Pair vintage and modern pieces.
Combine jewelry and clothing from different eras is a great way to give an outfit an individual look. There is an 80s influence in fashion right now, so mixing those items with a modern look feels unique. Mix 60s ans 70s pieces, like bauble necklaces and bell-bottom jeans from your mom's closet and wear th…

WHERE TO GO IN THE MONTH OF MAY

This is usually a pleasant month the whole world over. Winter hasn't yet hit the southern hemispere, while the north finally delivers on its spring promise and the weather is consistently better. 
The Mediterranean warms up enough to get in the water without too much fuss and flowers bloom in abundance; even the far reaches of nothern USA reach relatively comfortable temperatures. May Day was the traditional festival that marked the end of winter and beginning of summer. 
These days much of the world is more likely to celebrate May Day-1st May-not as the beginning of summer but as International Workers' Day. To help you choose, you will find below the best destinations to travel in the month of May:
1. PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC, EUROPE.
Musical city with a splendid array of beautiful buildings. Prague is a marvellous repository of Medieval, Baroque and Rennaisance buildings and in May these ring out with the sound of music.
2. BOSTON, USA, NORTH AMERICA.
