London Fashion Week AW 2015 Recap

The next stop, London Fashion Week! I absolutely loved the collection presented through out the week! I have to admit that I didn't like LFW as much as NYFW.
Here's my favourite looks from my five favourite shows (again, not in any particular order):

Felder Felder
Felder Felder was one of my favourite show from LFW! I loved the boho vibe!

Simple, elegant, feminine. Issa Fall 2015 was on point.

Sass & Bide
I loved the biker chic style of the show!

Topshop Unique
Topshop is one of my favourite store and I absolutely loved the colours of the show!

Burberry Prorsum
Burberry always  brings their A game at LFW!

New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 Recap

It's that time of the year again! New York kicked off the infamous fashion month last week. The shows were beyond amazing!
Here's my favorite looks from my  ten favorite shows (not in any particular order):
3.1 Phillip Lim
Can we just talk about how amazing 3.1 Phillip Lim's collection was? 
It was the brand's 10th anniversary and the show could not have been better!

Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang is by far one of my favourite designer. I was very excited to see his new collection and I was not disappointed! 

Brandon Sun
I was not familiar with Brandon Sun, but he won me over with his gorgeous creation!

J. Mendel
J. Mendel's show was beyond amazing! I loved how elegant the whole collection was.

Nicholas K
Nicholas K's show was one of my favourite! I just love the mix of colours and texture. 

Oscar De La Renta
With the unfortunate death of the talented designer this past year, I was very curious as to what the collection would look like. There is no doubt that Peter Copping manage to keep the essence of the brand. Without hesitation, I can say that this was one of my favourite show of the season so far.

I had never heard of that brand before their show at NYFW. I love this whole collection so much. if I could, I'd buy every single article!

Rebecca Minkoff
Rebecca Minkoff killed it at NYFW! I loved the boho vibe from her show! 
The fringes and fedora hats won me over.

Taoray Wang
The whole collection was perfect in my opinion! I would wear all the looks! I loved the simplicity of the clothes and the mix of black and grey!

Vera Wang
Vera Wang killed it with her almost all black collection! I loved the mix of texture and the oversized jackets and sweaters!

Maybe next year, I'll get to attend Fashion Week (a girl can dream...)

My Trip to Senegal

A year ago, I had the chance to spend a month in Senegal in the gorgeous city of Saint-Louis. 
It was by far the best experience of my life. I spent most of my time volunteering at a 
kindergarden and at a Talibe center. I met wonderful people that I will never forget. 
Not a day goes by that I don't think back to this amazing trip.
Hopefully I'll go back someday!

The gate to get to the beach from a restaurant near the city of Saint-Louis.
The beaches in Saint-Louis are not very clean, but if you go outside of the city, the beaches are beautiful! We spent a day at a hotel called "Oasis" it was around 3$ (CAD) to get there by taxi.

The Faidherbe Bridge in Saint-Louis.
This beautiful bridge connects the mainland to the more touristic part of the city (the island).

Djoudj, a National Bird Parc in the north of Senegal.
Djoudj is a must see in Senegal! The park is stunning and it is surreal to see so many birds!

The Lompoul beach.
This beach was breath taking! 

The most beautiful place I have ever seen: The Lompoul Desert.
The desert is so small you can see it all from the highest point. 
Going there is absolutely worth the 3h ride! It was my favourite activity!

And the most amazing experience: riding a camel in the desert.
It was unbelievable to ride a camel! 

Running down the dunes of the desert was lots of fun!

A view of the capital, Dakar.
I fell in love with Dakar! The city is gorgeous. This is the view from the observatory.

The sunset in Dakar.

Yoff beach in Dakar.
Beautiful beach in Dakar. There is a possibility of surfing.

Gorée Island when you arrive from Dakar.
Gorée Island is rich in history. The little island is very colourful! I highly recommend visiting it!

It was the most wonderful trip of my life and I hope I will one day be able to come back.
