L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola! (I really hope you know what I'm singing, otherwise this just comes across as plain weird...)
Hello all, I'm writing from rainy/sunny/I-just-can't-make-my-mind-up France. Me being my obsessive self, I bought - let's see... - 6 French fashion magazines (they're only a euro!) within the first two days of my week-long stay. What can I say? When in France, do as the fashion savvy french do!
I won't lie, despite sudying GCSE and AS Level French, my grasp of the language isn't quite fluent enough for me to read without fault through all of the articles, so I've taken to flipping happily, looking at the pretty pictures. And - oh! - what a beauty I've found!
French Glamour's final page flaunted Lola Paris, a brand previously unknown to me, so I did a little spelunking and poured myself over their vision for Autumn Winter 2014. The book features some Burberry Prorsum F/W 2014-esque blankets paired with a belt and sleeveless shift, beautiful peacoats - and don't get me started on the suits!!
The smart-casual cool of suits paired with trainers is very on-trend - if you care about keeping up with trends - but also darn aesthetically pleasing. The unexpected pairing of trainers with dresses is something I already do (hey, I'm a sucker for comfort) - but suits...I love the look so much that I'm looking to invest in a two-piece!
Here are my favourite pieces from the Lola Paris F/W 2014 collection.
|Love the monochrome contrast on the left look. The right look just screams Burberry, right?|
|I can't begin to express my adoration for this look, style reference!!|

All the best from lightning-storm France!
