5 Things You Want Right Now for Paris Fashion Week

5 things I want right now!

For those who don’t follow me on Instagram, I’m in Paris this weekend (see hashtag #bodieandfoutravelsparis). Yesterday, I went to meet my photography hero: Peter Lindbergh who kindly signed his new book for me (see Instagram stories), and afterwards I went to a party organised by Milk magazine at La Trésorerie (very nice shop in the 10th arrondissement).

5 things you want right now in the sale!

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

Net-a-Porter is seriously a dangerous place to be at the moment. Each time I look at their sale, I spot something really nice like this pair of Chloé leather sandals Lucy from Fashion Me Now has been raving about. The thing for me is first, I hate clutter in the house. So I’m not going to get X amounts of paires of shoes just because they are in the sale. Secondly, I think now I have found the style that works for my figure and age, I want to get something that is really ME and I will wear as much as I wear my Isabel Marant pieces. Granted it took me a few months to get a pair of Stan Smith (they are 20% OFF on Zalando) but it turned out to be a good purchase (for me!) as I wear them weekly. The last thing I want and I suspect it’s the same for you, is to have things in my wardrobe that I don’t wear. So here are a few other things that I think are …

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

This is my favourite look at the moment. It’s easy going, versatile and you can change/update the whole outfit by changing your clutch, replace the top by a basic v-neck t-shirt in charcoal, light grey or white and wear a parka or this nice grey coat. 1/This leather jacket which is made of soft panelled lambs leather (a must-have!) 2/ These boyfriend jeans by Current Elliot. I’m also loving this pair from Hush and this one from Monki 3/ This leopard clutch by Clare Vivier which I should have got ages ago 4/A pair of Stan Smith which has been pretty much the only pair I wore when I was in Paris early this week 5/ This lovely top by Isabel Marant (once I get my acts together, I will list a few things from Marant which are actually too big for me) SHOP THE POST:

1/ The AA Butterfly chair is one of my favourite pieces of design after the Paulistano chair. It has such an iconic design legacy and still looks amazingly modern considering it was designed in 1938. 2/Following my post on the Hush beachwear collection, I ordered the Kaftan dress in black to take to France with me next week. I already have this lovely glitter clutch and this military jacket. 3/During summer time, I’m usually more of a Birkenstock kind of girls, but for the sake of showing you different alternatives, I think these leather slides from ATP Atelier are really gorgeous (a pair of K Jacques St Tropez would be great too!). 4/Love this new black rattan clutch from Clare Vivier and of course, if you didn’t buy the La Tropezienne tote bag when we had it in the BODIE and FOU Collection, you should really order one from her site. 5/and I love this Dr Jackson’s 04 coconut melt which I bought a couple of weeks ago. It smells wonderful. I was also recommended this Fig + Arrow facial care kit for skins …

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW!

Last year I bought 5 jumpsuits and most of them have been great investment, meaning I wore them weekly each Season (except maybe a black one from Mango which I’ll put on Ebay when I’m back in London). For me, a great investment is based on the cost per wear ratio. Meaning, the cost of the item Vs the number of times I will wear the item. This is how I justify to spend $$$$ on a pair of Dicker ankle boots by Isabel Marant, (which to be honest I wear day in day out during the Summer and have for the past 3 Summers)…and it’s why it’s also good to mix great designer pieces like this Winter coat by Marant, which you are likely to wear a few Winters and things from the high-street or more affordable online brands like Hush, ASOS, Boden or French Connection.
