Chanel Code Coco

I’m a bowerbird attracted to magnificent shiny things; glistening antique brooches, jewel encrusted statement earrings and necklaces spangled in lucky charms, there is nothing that escapes my clutches. However it’s watches that rate most highly on my collect-ometre, and for good reason.  You see the magic about a beautiful timepiece is that it’s not only a fab addition

Chanel Spring 2019

  There aren’t many shows at fashion week where the atmosphere outside the venue, is just as electric as the show itself. Outside the Grand Palais on Chanel show day an ocean of well dressed industry folk dance with your favourite street style photographers, while next to them the surrounding Avenues are full of cars

Chanel Fall 2018 Ready to Wear

    There was something magic in the air this season at the Chanel Fall 2018 Ready To Wear show.  As you walked into the Grand Palais you were greeted by an eerie and beautiful enchanted forest, it something similar to from a Brothers Grimm children book.  Nine incredibly haunting trees stood centre stage, free

The Patriot

If you’re not the girl who lives in Paris, you’re most likely me … yep that’s right that girl who imagines that she lives there. On the weekends I order croissants, when I leave my makeup on at night I like to reason that it’s ok because it’s so very French no? And I can […]

Star Gazing

Of the many highlights from our trip to Paris earlier in the year for the 2017 Fall Winter shows, being in the bleachers for the Chanel show is something I won’t ever forget. As we sat in The Grande Palais in the presence of the ‘Gabrielle Chanel Agence Spatiale’ rocket, we knew we were about to witness […]

Chanel Spring 2018

    Walking into the Grand Palais is always an experience in itself,  let alone the location for the Chanel Spring 2018 Show. As I walked through the large entrance I was greeted by the sounds of water gently cascading down the side of a giant, moss laden cliff.  At that exact moment I knew I […]

Gabrielle & I

Note to self:  Everything goes with Chanel. When Mr Lagerfeld, the 30yr strong brand architect of the Chanel juggernaut launched the Chanel ‘Gabrielle’ Bag via the Spring Summer 2017 Ready To Wear runway show, there were gasps from the audience.  Gasps because the world has been waiting since Spring 2012 for the fashion house to release a new major handbag […]

The Gabrielle Effect

Hermoine Granger was not the first girl to yearn for a bag that could hold a multitude of tricks. For every situation a girl like me likes to smuggle away .. her passport (you never know when you’re going to have to make a quick getaway), a room stopping man-trancing perfum, her technical gadgets and of […]

Chanel Fall 2017

As an admirer from afar, or even if you’re lucky enough like to be a guest like myself at a Chanel show, the only certainty is that you must expect the unexpected.  Every season the Chanel universe evolves, morphs and transforms so greatly, that we may assume that only Mr Lagerfeld himself knows where the […]

MY WARDROBE / NEW FAVES

Let me first start by saying: happy (belated) 2017! Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Between eating and spending time with my loved ones, I also thought it was the perfect time for a wardrobe clean up. And to putt together my new Ziito Design wardrobe, where I can store all my current favourites. Like my new shearling coat from ZARA, this insanely gorgeous dress from Magali, grey crossbody bag from Rough Studios and my new black leather shopper from MYOMY (found at Marington) just to name a few.. But hey, there is always room for more.. ;)

Chanel Giveaway

Much like diamonds, skinny jeans or a pair of pumps; a Chanel bag is something that should be in every girl’s wardrobe because no matter how boyish, urban or eclectic you are, there’s a Chanel bag somewhere that would elevate your look when the right moment comes. Unlike skinny jeans or pumps though, it’s hard to get your hands on a Chanel bag so I’m about to offer you a once in a lifetime chance to win your own Chanel. I’ve teamed up with Poshbag Boutique, Canada’s largest online retailer of authentic pre-owned designer handbags, to win a Chanel bag valued at $2000 and all you have to do is follow @poshbagboutique on Instagram, mention a friend in the comments under the giveaway photo and then regram that photo on your own account and tag @poshbagboutique in the photo so they can track it. Contest closes June 30th at midnight EST and winner will be notified on their Instagram. In case Chanel is not your bag (pun intended) or you don’t win the giveaway, you …

Movie documents MVRDV’s pioneering technique for creating glass brick facades

This movie shows the installation of MVRDV’s Crystal Houses – a Chanel store featuring a traditional facade replicated with glass bricks that are “stronger than concrete”. First published on Dezeen last month, Crystal Houses is located on PC Hooftstraat in Amsterdam, a former residential street that has become a hub for luxury fashion brands like Prada, Dior and Rolex.

Boy Meets Girl

At the risk of sounding cheesy,  this is me sartorially speaking on ‘date night’.  The quintessential evening ensemble for a girl who likes to dress like a boy, who likes boys who dress like boys .. catching my drift?  The very first time I met Sam (aka Mr Oracle Fox) I was wearing a lemon […]

last one in SF

By the time you’re reading this, we’ve already moved in to our new place in NYC, but I’m excited to share one last post from SF. This rocker chic outfit is my take on a little bit of SF and a little bit of NYC. Because deep down, I feel connected to both coasts and feel lucky that we get to experience these two amazing cities! Last but not least, I got the best makeover from Acher Salon in San Francisco right before our move. I don’t trust just anyone with big changes, but this one just felt right. Many thanks to Gari, CK for color, Mari for cut, Bianca for brows, Charlie for hair styling and Margarita for nails. The whole team there is just amazing, and I’m obsessed with my new hair. Special thanks to Angie for the amazing photos! As always, thanks for reading. xx i’m wearing Reformation top Acne Studios sweater Acne Studios jeans Givenchy heels Chanel bag

Loose Ends

The Libran in me struggles with any lack of symmetry, call it borderline OCDC or maybe even a creative streak, but anything asymmetric usually throws me off guard .  Well times they are a changin baby, lately with a series of slinky asymmetric knits marching down the runway, the scales they are a tipping.  Ryan Roche’s […]

Hong Kong travel journal pt. 2

As we prepare for our next adventure, I wanted to look back at the last part of our Hong Kong travel journal and share some more photos with you. It’s been over a month since we traveled to Asia, and putting together this travel journal gave me a serious case of wanderlust. The first part of Hong Kong is here, and the Taipei travel journal is here. One of the best perks of traveling for me is to be able to shop at local stores. Like this cozy sweater dress for instance. I got it at a small boutique in Taipei for $25! It was super fun to style it with a pair of faux leather pants and the Isabel Marant knot belt. Photos were taken in Hong Kong. A few Hong Kong tips: If you’re a coffee lover, check out my favorite coffee shops 18 Grams and The Coffee Academics. If you’re a high tea lover, the afternoon tea service at The Peninsula Hotel is also a must. Thank you for reading! xx Melis Check out my Instagram and Bloglovin. the outfit

LATELY ON MY FEED

Eventhough it was a little bit quite around here for awhile, I did kept you guys in the loop of my life and my outfits on my Instagram feed. For those who have missed it, here’s a little recap of what I have been up to and of course what I have been wearing. :)

Black Magic

It only feels like a week ago that I was backstage at Australian Fashion Week talking to my good friend Toni Maticevski about finding the ‘zen’, you know .. how to be creative and draw upon one’s inner calm in an industry so full throttle.   Mr Maticevski is the master of zen so it […]

All Night In Black & White

I usually go for plain t-shirts and sweatshirts but there’s something really cool about Être Cécile’s slogan t-shirts, this Toute La Nuit (All Night) one caught my eye recently. True to my style though, I would wear it with a simple outfit of black and neutral pieces. 1. Chanel Le Vernis – Nail Colour in […]

INTERIOR / BEAUTY CORNER

Last week I’ve received a huge box with the entire Balmain Luxury Care & Styling product line, such a treat! The packaging is just too beautiful to store away in a closet, so I’ve created a little beauty corner in my bedroom. I’m such a sucker for minimalistic beauty packaging. <3

ESSENTIALS / SILVER

A few of my current (silver) favourites. The watch was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend. I never ever wear watches but I absolutely love the simplicity of this one. Now I just need to remind myself to check the time on my watch instead of on my iPhone… I also love the new colour of Chanel’s Limited Edition ‘Intemporel’ nailpolish. From now on you will see me rocking metallic silver nails instead of the usual black.

Valentine’s Gift Guide: For Her

LIFE / GETTING READY FOR

Layed out are all the essentials to cover the shows from Vodafone’s Firsts Fashion LAB. Just like last season, when I had the pleasure to interview the super talented Fernanda Fernandes.  Vodafone Firsts Fashion LAB is where new designers make their first debut at Fashion Week Amsterdam, a once in a life time shot for a young designer. I was very curious to see all the shows of these newcomers, with one in particular… Liselore Frowijn. For the very first time in her career she showed her first fashion show last week during MBFWA. And not just any show, she had the honor to kick off Vodafone’s Firsts Fashion LAB. A dream come true. Her collection ‘No. 3 Formania’ made a big entrance in front of the Dutch fashion press. And it also got live streamed worldwide thanks to Vodafone. I can’t even imagine how that have must felt for Lisalore! To learn more about Liselore and to see her journey watch this inspiring docu:

Chanel N˚5

As Gisele Bunchen paddled into the surf with a black Chanel surfboard underneath her in the most recent Chanel N˚5 campaign by Baz Luhrmann, all that we could think was that’s “The one that I want”.  With this magnificent campaign in mind I recently put pen to paper to create an illustration for Chanel featuring their model […]
