The Style Bloggers | No. 16: Gabrielle Paris

 Un mini abito in tessuto di lana leggera color bianco (off-white)


I have had this vintage Jacques Tiffeau for Saks Fifth Avenue cream A-line wool dress for a few years. It was just hanging in my closet because I never found the right way to wear it. I had it shortened a couple of years ago – it was over the knee and looked a bit too serious. And it’s wool so it’s really a winter dress. But somehow, after the purchase of my Celine wedges it all came together and I endured the slight wool itch for a day. It’s actually quite breezy.

The leather pouch has been in my life for as long as I can remember. I have pictures of myself, when I was barely walking, wearing overalls, laced leather Kickers and a tiny t-shirt, rocking a boy’s haircut, and that little pouch. I think I might have put coins in it. It says Gabrielle Paris embossed on the front. I believe my parent bought it for me on one of their Paris trips. They must have been in their mid-twenties then. They will probably be really surprised when they see I’ve held on to this baby souvenir for so long….

The cardigan is designed my friend Risto Bimbiloski. I think this is one of his best pieces! It’s hand-knit by one of his relatives or lady friends in Macedonia. I love the toggle closures and copper metallic trim. It’s a good dresser-downer cardigan.

I don’t remember where I bought the 70’s sunglasses. I love the shape and neutral color.

As a finishing touch I put a Hermes ribbon in my hair. I thought it was cute and the brown and cream were represented in the rest of the outfit.

Essie “lapis of luxury” manicure. OPI “need sunglasses” pedicure.
