Alma Luna
 
I couldn’t stop scrolling through post after post of Alma’s amazing blog. A vibrant student in Paris, her posts detail a life of adventure and fun with fashion. Her outfits were seriously so inspiring, I’m now filled with ideas of how to revamp my wardrobe. The photo above was taken on the streets of Paris, and honestly couldn’t look more chic.
 
Le Blog de Big Beauty
 
Stylin’ Stephanie of Le Blog de Big Beauty is a gem of a find. Actress, model and fashionista, Stephanie is redefining what is means to be a larger woman in French culture. She even offers courses for women on how to dress to flatter their curves. I love how she plays with color in her outfits, and I’d kill for her amazing shoe collection!

FashionLove Her Look: Marion Cotillard in Vogue

After winning an Oscar for her portrayal of singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, actress Marion Cotillard has gained much deserved notoriety and prominence in the spotlight.
 
Now, this talented French native has stared alongside Johnny Depp in Public Enemies and Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming film, Inception.
 
Marion recently graced the cover of the July issue of Vogue. I just love the beautiful berries and soft pinks of Cotillard’s feature. Taken at La Bastide de Marie, located in the South of France, these shots by photographer Mario Testino are exquisite to behold.

FashionTrend to Try: Oxford Flats

Put a little prep in your step this season with a sophisticated pair of oxford flats. I love the look of oxfords and was so excited to see our stock of the Vabene Boyfried Oxford arrive earlier this week. The menswear look for women is on a roll, and if you’re on board, you need to get yourself a pair of these cuties. Wear ‘em alone with dresses and shorts, or take a tip from model Agyness Deyn and pair them with some cute ankle socks. How would you rock the oxford?
