Lustable: Repetto Ballet Flats

RepettoFirst created in 1947, Repetto ballet flats are the original, classic flat.  I once had a pair that a certain puppy (who shall remain nameless and whom I love very much) decided to eat.  I guess the leather was soft enough that it resembled a dog treat.  Whatever the reason, I am lusting after another pair of these lovely flats.  I would say they are so soft that they feel like butter but I’m not really in the habit of putting butter on my feet.  Suffice it to say, they are super soft and oh-so-comfortable.

Profile of a Healthy Foodie and Blogger, Carolina Crespi

I met Carolina six years ago when we were both living in China and we became good friends.  Since then, I have visited her in Barcelona and she visited me in San Francisco.  When she came to visit, she told me about  some changes that she had made to how she eats after seeing a holistic nutritionist.  Her new diet had filled her with energy and had some very positive changes in her life.  She also runs a healthy food blog called Apples & Carrots.  I am very happy to share her story as well as her recipe for {almost} ceviche.

A couple of years ago you really changed the way that you eat.  What changes did you make and what drove you to make those changes?  What results did you experience after making these changes? 
Yes! I was feeling heavy and tired.  I started to think that I could have an intolerance to some type of food. I always care about eating healthy but it was when I visited a holistic nutritionist that I started a complete new diet and I realized that I wasn’t eating as healthy as I thought.  The biggest change I made was eating cleaner and less combinations.  Too many ingredients complicate the digestion.  It is harder for your body to get the best out of what your eating because the digestion is consuming too much energy.  The diet is based on veggies and whole foods mostly.  During the 3 first months I skipped completely all types of dairy products, alcohol, sugar and refined products. When I followed this I was full of energy, I slept better, my skin was glowing and I was happier!  Beside that, I lost weight immediately!

One of my favorite French fashion brands is Antik Batik with its upscale boho look.  These are few pieces that I am lusting after.  It just so happens they’re all on sale!

Paris Design Week: Maison et Objet

Over the weekend I worked the Maison et Objet show in Paris for a client.  For those of you that don’t know, this is the equivalent of design week for home decor and furniture.  While finding items for my client, I also managed to sneak a few forbidden inspiration photos.  I hope you enjoy!

Style Icon: Garance Doré

One of my favorite fashion blogs is Garance Doré.  I find the fashion photos inspiring and I really enjoy Garance’s self-deprecating humor and the way that she doesn’t take it to seriously.  I go to this blog not just for the pictures but for the stories as well.  Garance also happens to have amazing personal style.  She has the kind of style that I really admire, where you remember the woman not the clothes.  She wears mostly neutrals and manages to mix them in a way that looks effortless yet stylish.  Here are a few of her looks that I love.
