Baby it’s cold outside

 

Oh well… this is that time of year again when  the sun puts itself on a part-time schedule, everybody sneezes around you and seasonal depression starts to ruin your mood. And as if it wasn’t enough, the end of Daylight Savings Time is around the corner AGAIN (when are we going to adopt it all year round ?)

At least, one comforting thing is, it’s time to look at the cute new coats you could buy to survive this winter !

Let’s start with some inter-seasonal pieces (there are still a couple of afternoons when the temperature is OK-ish). A trench is perfect for these days when the sun has decided to stay in bed but the weather is still mild.

But not any trench : the sky is already grey, you don’t want to look like any other woman out there, right ?

Add some fun with a trench topped up with leather details, or with an unexpected suede trench :

LÕU.YETU

 

Chilling on Facebook isn’t always a waste of time. Especially since the social network enables brands to massively advertise on our newsfeeds. I have to admit the targeting is very well done : most ads I see are for clothes, jewels or beauty products (or marketing consulting companies, but that’s another story).

That’s how I got to discover a very interesting new jewelry brand : LÕU.YETU.

Cool name, right ? (French people will understand). Intrigued by the beautiful set of bracelets that were displayed on the ad, I decided to dig a little bit. Currently, the brand only sells through private physical sales. The next one was planned a couple of days later in Paris : perfect, I signed up and here we are, in a cosy parisian apartment.

Warm welcoming, cosy feeling, small pastries and beverages to make you feel comfortable (a lot of other jewel enthusiasts too), it felt like heaven for any fashionista.

Now, the jewels : a surprisingly rich collection of gold-plated bracelets, rings and necklaces.  The jewels are resistant to water, and any adventure you might want to bring them into. The clever thing is, the more you stack bracelets and necklaces, the better they look !

An e-shop should soon open (in October), I’ll keep you posted !
