Christian Louboutin 'Simplenodo' ballerinas

It was my birthday in November and I turned 27 years young.

I do not care much for birthdays at all - in fact, I just rather omit the whole day.

But it was a lovely day, starting with a huge French breakfast with my mother,
followed by buying various cakes from the city's best patisseries,
and ended with a sensational dinner.

My boyfriend spoiled me incredibly with these

They're so me.
The patent leather, the bow, the model... I'm in love with them!


If every month has a color, November was RED!

French Madame in Athens, and the rest of Greece

So the journey through Greece continues...
I visited Athens, Napflio, and Katakalon among other this Summer.

Athens is such a beautiful, multi-diverse city.
The old Greece reigning in the middle of the city center at the sky-high Acropolis,
while modern business buildings are built around it.

These pictures were taken from the top of the Acropolis.

The views you see from the Acropolis are absolutely magnificent.
Definitely worth the hike up in the sweltering heat!

French Madame in Santorini, Greece

As Christmas is approaching, and my annual Christmas wish list is in the making,
I fulfilled one of my top wishes from last year's wish list...
a trip to Santorini.
I visited Greece this Summer and Santorini was my favorite.
The incredible, almost too-pretty views is something everyone should see.

In Memorian of Oscar de la Renta - The Man Who Made Women Beautiful

Oscar de la Renta


As many people in the fashion industry, or simply just fashion admirers, I am deeply saddened by the loss of Oscar de la Renta.
Along with Valentino, Christian Lacroix and Karl Lagerfeld, he has been my favorite designer for many years.


Oscar de la Renta


I wrote so many posts about him, I think I mentioned no other designer more often on my 'Look of the Week'-series.
- My Oscar de la Renta-inspired thigh high boots.
- A December-edition of 'Look of the Week'.
- A post about exquisite gowns, featuring many by Oscar.

Carrie Bradshaw's iconic Oscar de la Renta dress.

Even though I was never fortunate enough to own one of his pieces, I have a fond memory of de la Renta's fashion;

Just last week when I went to Budapest, I entered a department store heaven that was 4 levels high with dozens of high-end brands,
yet still my favorite piece of the entire store was a embroided teal Oscar de la Renta dress.
I told my boyfriend if I could have just 1 thing in the store, it would be that dress.


Oscar de la Renta


And the many hours spent browsing his collections on Style.com.
He was always in my top 5 favorite designers. Definitely number 1 favorite American designer.


His last collection, Spring 2015:

Goodbye dear Oscar.
You will be missed and thought of often.
