Outfit inspiration | Paris fashion week

I wanted something cosy and monochromatic, something that would give a sense of freedom and protection, sensuality and elegance, simplicity and timelessness, something in my favourite shade - the charcoal grey. Then I put everything I loved and imagined on a piece of paper and transformed these ideas into an outfit, an ultimate wish list if I am honest... I wonder what would a Parisienne think of it...

  8. Thanks that you share here your wonderful inspiration, dear Natalia, and although I'm not from Paris I like this outfit personally really. It's so elegant, en vogue and classy at the same time. Hopefully I will be able to create something similar with the stuff in my closet :)

  9. Love this image, and the rich charcoal pieces that you choose. It is elegant and so luxurious, and I love the claret colored bag as contrast.
    As always, well done and inspiring!

  10. I love the grey coat, it is so classy and gorgeous.

  11. This look is tres parisienne, indeed. This is the kind of simple elegance that I really miss seeing, living in North America - nothing is more beautiful than good tailoring.

  12. I adore grey! What a fabulous outfit!
