A basic vintage looky shooting featuring my own (thrifted) Pendleton jacket with my own vintage 80s boots.  Features our boutique’s Le Petit Béret made in mink, and the wool Murielisime cardigan.  Mel’s vintage sunglasses and my shredded denim.





Grace Jones’s striking appearance, height (5’10½ » or 1.79 m) and manner influenced the cross-dressing movement of the 1980s.  She would also exemplify the « Flat Top » hairstyle which would become popular among black men in the 1980s.  Parallel to her musical shift in the 80’s was an equally dramatic visual makeover, created in partnership with stylist Jean-Paul Goude, with whom she had a son. Jones adopted a severe, androgynous look, with square-cut hair and angular, padded clothes.   To this day, Grace Jones is known for her unique look at least as much as she is for her music.

We had an unplaned day out shooting 4 looks this week, and the pictures turned out great!  We had a blast, really!  Here is one of them looks from my personnal closet, it’s; a contemporary 2nd hand shirt mixed with 80’s vintage puffed skirt, vintage belt, contemporary 2nd hand heels and La Maison Simons thights.. hihi.. basicaly, a 14$ look.  Hope it inspires you to go thrifting this weekend!  Enjoy! xo


Nous avons fait un shooting improvisé cette semaine pour 4 looks, dans le genre, oh, il fait beau et pas trop soleil? pourquoi pas? et nous sommes très heureuses du résultat, en plus d’avoir eu du gros fun noir!  En voici un dont les morceaux sont tous tirés de mon dressing perso, je porte une blouse contemporaine seconde-main, une jupe vintage pouffie des  80’s, des talons contemporains seconde-main ainsi que des collants deux tons La Maison Simons.  Je confèsse, c’est un look à 14$.  Alors sur ce bon weekend à tous et toutes!!!

My life is very DIY oriented.. at least my job, my clothes, food, interior design are… and art too!  I am far from being an artist but  I can still manage to create some cute stuff for my loved ones.  My speciality is wish cards for birthdays, sickdays, wedding days or any special days.  I don’t think I ever bought a wish card, because  I love taking time to think of something special and personnal for everyone around me.  So this sunday we were celebrating my mom and dad’s 32nd wedding anniversary (these love birds are so inspiring I could cry! ) and my card idea was very simple and cliché, but oh so adorable for the occasion.

The concept in my mind was two foxes sitting next to one another with their tales tangled up, watching a sunset..  (awwww!), but somehow, this mis-connexion between my brain and my hands didn’t make it happen, because my drawing very looked like two Garfields sitting next to one another dreaming of lasagnas.  Forget about it!  So while I was hanging out with my lil’ romanian sister, she agreed to create the image I had in my head (foxes, not garfield) with waterpaint!  Yay!  The result is cute and perfect, here are some pics I took while she was working, gna gna gna!

Tx St, my pops loved the card!
