MY PERSONAL STYLE

Although you can’t deny my French roots when you look at me, what defines my style will be casual chic with an eclectic twist! I’m always influenced by my mood of the day, my travels and the occasions to dress up. Loving the black but adding accessories and colours that will make me a bit more boho or glam!

MY FASHION MUST-HAVES

  1. I feel completely naked without earrings!
  2. Shoes, statement earrings, shoes, hats and hair accessories, shoes and never forget the little black dress – with beautiful shoes of course!
  3. Beside shoes, BLACK! A black dress, a black pair of jeans, a black skirt (I have maybe 20 of these), a black jacket, a black sweater… sounds boring but you can play with different fabrics and materials – leather, lace, silk… I love black!

MY HAI’LIFE

Although I’m leaving soon, what has kept me here for the past seven years is how easy it is to make a double of your key, have an Ayi, pay your bills at the convenience store, etc… Well it has a small influence on my long Hai journey but actually it’s the PEOPLE I have met here that keep me here! I meet such amazing personalities from all over the world everyday, their stories inspire me, their personalities and their dynamism. Always up to do something new (apart from having drinks on Yonkang lu!!). The city is full of excitement that is truly addictive, and most of us get sucked into the “Shanghai Bubble”.
