Discovery: John Woodbridge – Paris

Hello,

Today I wanted to share a small shop in Paris that I discovered last month. My cousin spotted it right away and as soon as I got in I was completely in love with the store.

It’s called John Woodbridge and sells amazing vintage looking travel and sport items.

This company which is quite recent (2013) aims to spread the love of vintage objects that are full of history.

Over there, you’ll find amazing leather pieces for travelling or old looking baseball balls among any others.

Here are some pics from their website.

The whole atmosphere of the store is gorgeous, it has this kind of man cave vibes to it that I find super charming.

If you are ever in the lovely area of St Paul in Paris, I highly recommend you check it out.

PS: And if you are really into vintage sports like this, check out their tumblr page which will be an absolute delight for you! Well done!

Cheers,

P&F

Suits for All

>>While you read (click)<< 

I don’t usually post picture of myself neither OOTDs (maybe I’ll start that soon – let me know if that would be of any interest for you).
But my staples are a good pair of jeans, nice flats/sneakers and some kind of blazer (polished, oversized, boyish – according to mood 😉 ).

However I love a good suit. Wether it’s mismatched or regular – for any occasion, really! I love wearing them and I love seeing other people wearing them (men and women) because come on, the gents look damn hot in those and we just look gorg and sophisticated.

I have been wearing them a lot and also pinning like crazy anything suit related. That’s why I decided to write this post. I decided to share with you 3 ways that I would wear a suit and the versions that could suit (see what I did there?) men for a sexy yet classy look for different occasions. I am no fashion expert, that is only the way I would personally style this beautiful ensemble.

#1 The Polished Look

When I’m referring to this polished look, I’m referring to all business-y occasions and some formal parties. I would say this look calls for a tie, a single color, and a good cut. We are looking for the very sharp look here.
Then according to the context, you can play around with the materials of the suit and accessories.

#2 The Daily Look

I would wear something like this for a special occasion but not too formal, a fancy brunch for example, a date. It is also appropriate as a work outfit in many industries among other occasions. For this look I would play with colors, maybe mismatch the blazer and pants, and maybe switch the button down shirt for a blouse or a nice sweater. For men I would definitely skip the tie, and for the ladies I would pair this with some more casual yet fancy flats, like oxfords or loafers.

#3 The Casual Look

Well, for this everyday look it is basically about playing the effortless card. Go for a baggy blazer, sneakers, your call – as long as it shows off your personality it’s all good.

I hope you liked this post and that it was interesting. Let me know if you’d like more of these.
