Nature out of bed

28 Jan , 2016  

NatureOutOfBed (1)

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to nature ouf of bed.

 

Calling all night owls – your chance to come alive isn’t just at twilight. Pretty pyjamas is the style that’s waking up the world. That’s right – the ‘nature out of bed’ look is a new trend that works all around the clock. It’s comfiness and cocoon style carries a hint of the 90’s grunge, with an element of floral femininity. One blogger who has already embarked on this trend is @laugh_of_artist who captures a style of being as snug as a bug in a rug.

Just like Victoria, you can achieve this look by working fifty shades of grey, chunky knits and floral patterns. Topshop have a light, floral pair of pyjama bottoms, perfect for catching up on beauty sleep or lunch in town. Prefer a dressed-down look? This Ted Baker floral sweatshirt is your go-to piece to pair with a pair of boyfriend jeans. No ‘nature out of bed’ look would be complete with a scarf – we’re in love with this dusky pink floral scarf by Jigsaw which nails this trend to a T. Complete with our comfy Jumper boots to add that street-style edge that rocks the city.

Next time you open your wardrobe, swap playsuits for pj’s and shirts for sweaters.

MEDUSE TALKS WITH… 5POCKETS

27 Jan , 2016  

5Pockets_Featured

In our last interview, we met Slanelle, an influential top fashion blogger who loves nothing more than updating her wardrobe with eye-catching finds, and playing her guitar in her spare time.

This week, we meet 5Pockets, a blog dedicated to jeans and denim! Curious? Read here!

‘We’re going for your Flamille High Boots which are really awesome!’

M – Hello Team 5Pockets! We’ve had a look on your blog and it’s certain to say that you guys are devoted to denim! Can you tell us a bit more about how your project started?
P – Indeed, we are devoted to denim! We think that all wardrobes need to have a nice selection of jeans as they are at the centre of fab outfits. We launched our blog almost one year ago, with an aim to be part of the online denim world. We chose the name ‘5 Pockets’ because it represents the 5 famous pockets of the denim.

M – We’ve noticed that your blog also shows another dimension, about well-being – which we love! Do you have any tips on feeling fantastic this winter?
P – We launched our well-being section because we think that feeling comfortable in your own clothes is feeling comfortable in your own skin. Our beauty tips for this winter: tea, tea and tea! We’re crazy about tea – not only do we drink it, we also apply it on our eyes when we find it tricky to wake up in the mornings. Nevertheless, you need to choose a good tea – be careful with supermarkets brands! Also, don’t wait till the summer to take up a sport – sport is built for everyday! It’s important to feel good in your jeans, even when you’re hiding under a big coat 😉

M – What are the jeans that are hot on the scene right now? Do you have a style that is a must-have this season? If so, how should we style them up?  
P – This is not an easy question! It depends on your shape. Today, more than ever, the fashion market is divided and a lot of niche trends exist. We advise you to have a look at our Ebook (free of course) which will help you to find your shape, the perfect pair of jeans for you and some outfits for inspiration.

M – And now for your challenge! That’s right, we challenge you to pick a pair of jeans along with a few other seasonal fashion pieces that would match with a pair of our Meduse boots! You can create the ‘styleboard’ or you can pick the items and our designer will mock it up for you.
P – Let’s go! We’re going for your Flamille High Boots which are really awesome! Paired with black skinny jeans, a beige jumper and a long camel coat (we love this kind of outfit at the moment!). Something like this.

Bootcut, skinny, mom – we’re spoilt for choice! Thanks for joining us Team 5Pockets! You’ve just made us even more obsessed about denim! Take a look at their blog here for tips and tricks on how to work the best out of your jeans.

Space Samurai

21 Jan , 2016  

Space Samurai

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Space Samurai.

Step into the year 3000. What does it look like? To us, it looks like 2016.

We’ve been reminded of this snapshot of the late David Bowie, an icon who challenged the norm and tested the boundaries of fashion, art and of course music. He was a legend who always got it right, in his oddity. Here he poses with Kansai Yamamoto in an outfit with a name that’s forecasted this season – Space Samurai.

kansai yam

It’s a look that’s travelled from 1971, to today. This season takes inspiration from sublime nature – think thunderstorms, silver lightning, pale blue icicles and the gold streams of shooting stars. Geometrics, galaxy aesthetics, pale cosmos shades and futuristic edges dominate this trend. Match our sparkling Jumpail chelsea boots with these edgy, geometric silver brocade trousers from Lulu & Co, a Reiss metallic tank top and embellish with triangle earrings from Oasis. Fashion from the future – now.

So follow in the footsteps of Ziggy and don’t be afraid to step out into a new galaxy of style.

We’ll leave you with this…

MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… SLANELLE

20 Jan , 2016  

Slanelle1

Last week, we met They Call Me Mellie, a fashion blogger who is kooky about tip-top brunchs!

This week, we interview Slanelle, a mega star in the fashion and lifestyle world. Here she joins us to talk about her universe and what passions rocks her world.

M – Hello Slanelle! You’re a blogger that has been around on the net for quite some time. What kinda topics do you cover on your blog, and what are your interests?
S – Hi! On my blog, I mainly post outfits of the day and from time to time, I talk about beauty, travel (I love travelling all around the world!), and music, because I can sing and I can play the guitar.

02

 

M – No need to tell us that you love travelling – we can already see this on your blog! So, what are your favourite destinations to visit?
S – My favourite destination is Oslo, which I visited in 2014. I spent 4 days there, but I simply fell in love with the city. The people are lovely, life is great and you always feel like you’re safe there. I also love Rome, I’ve been there twice. Italy is really charming! This year, I’m going to Tokyo! It’s a place I’ve been dreaming about since I was a teenager! I think I’m gonna love it!

03

M – We listened to your song covers, and we LOVE them! When did you start singing and why did you take up this hobby?
S – In fact, I’ve liked singing ever since I was a child. I always broke into a trending song in the charts. At 17, I took up the guitar and I began to sing only with the guitar. Sometimes I can’t sing very well, but I always enjoy it!

01

M – We have a little challenge for you?! Could you chose your favourite pair of Méduse shoes and propose us a styleboard to kick off your style scene for 2016?
S – I think I would chose the sea-green or salmon pink Nikita, and I’d pair them with a white dress, like this!

Slanelle Styleboard

Thanks a lot Slanelle for your answers! We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to join us! You’re a true star, and you know you can count on us to keep up to date with your world. You’d be silly to miss out on her blog – check out the style icon’s universe!

Poetic Rock

14 Jan , 2016  

Poetic Rock

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Poetic Rock.

Bring together poetry and rock and what do you get? Either a lyrical ballad from Bob Dylan or an eccentric hybrid that the late David Bowie crafted. That’s right, the two concepts are uniting to form a new trend ‘Poetic Rock’. It’s a mysterious mash-up that’s hard to put your finger on but one thing we know for sure is that it definitely rocks our boat.

Intense nocturnal shades of greys, pinks and mauves meet post-punk and gothic influences – optical checks, liberty prints, leather net and mesh and shimmering furs sing on the scene. Take inspiration from this shaggy faux fur jacket from Urban Bliss or these majestic Mango pieces; a metallic rhinestone choker and a tassel chain bag.

It’s a new look that screams femininity with an edge. As Bob Dylan predicted – The Times They Are A Changin’…

MÉDUSE TALKS WITH… THEY CALL ME MELLIE

13 Jan , 2016  

Theycallmemelliefeatured
Last week in the hot seat was Margaux, Instagramer of Hopelessly Loving! This week we speak to high-flying fashion blogger Amelia, of ‘They Call Me Mellie’.
She knows what’s hot on the scene in NYC and she knows what’s hip-happening in Paris. Meet fashion blogger Amelia, a girl who has lived the American Dream and knows what a brunch spread should look like.   

‘I love your Jumpleo boots, I find them so quirky and fun!’

2

M – Hello Mellie! You’re a fashion, lifestyle, travel and beauty blogger! Could you tell us a few words about yourself for those who don’t know you yet?
A – Hey Méduse, my name’s Amélia and I started my blog They Call Me Mellie this summer – a project I had in mind for a while. I was born in France but I grew up in Polynesia and in the USA, that’s why I have a Parisian style with an international touch. Travelling is part of me and my identity –  I’m passionate about anything from fashion, design, art and food – things which are a huge part of my travelling around the world. That’s my way of living – thriving on what’s around me!
4
M – San Francisco, Los Angeles… You’ve been living the American dream! What can you tell us about the fashion industry there? Are there any differences with French or European fashion?
A – Yes, I had the chance to live the American dream quite young. My mum is an ambitious woman and we moved there for her career. Styles are so different in USA! There aren’t many trends though. From a city to a state, styles change and so do the beauty standards. San Francisco’s fashion is modern, natural yet it has a hipster touch, whereas in LA, fashion standards are so different – far more about glamour and sexiness. In New York, styles are ever-changing and they are far closer to what we know in Europe, or at least in Paris. The Parisian style to me is the most sophisticated. I think what makes a difference in Paris is that women dress for themselves and for other women. In USA, I feel like a lot of women mostly dress for men.
1
M – Food time! You’re a brunch-addict and your pictures whet our appetite! So what’s the perfect brunch recipe?
A – I’m truly passionate about brunch, probably my American side again. To me, a moment for family and friends – growing up, my mum would invite my friends and their parents to our home for massive brunch. Surprisingly, I love to go for a brunch at restaurants, as I love to try new things and discover new flavours. A perfect brunch would be made a freshly squeezed orange juice or a fruit smoothie (kiwi, banana, strawberry), a latte, some savoury treats (omelette, scrambled, Eggs Benedict), some sweet treats (pancakes, waffles or French toast) and a small fruit salad. For a festive brunch, add a glass of champagne to celebrate!

M – As a professional fashionista, you have a true expertise in clothing that we are curious to challenge! Our new collection for rainy days has a range of styles, equestrian-chic, colourful and original patterns… Do have a favourite pair? Could you prepare a styleboard and tell us a few words about this style?
A – I have quite a preppy style – I love being elegant whilst remaining feminine. I love your Jumpleo boots, I find them so quirky and fun and I love the ‘animal’ print – plus they are not too showy! I’d add rolled up boyfriend jeans to show a bit of ankle, a leopard print handbag to match the chelsea boots and a kitty-cat hairband for fun!
 05Well Amelia, with all your wise words, we want to jet-set around the world just like you! Thank you ever so much for joining us! We love your unique style and we can definitely learn a thing or two about accessorizing just like you! Keep up to date with her blog and Instagram.

Royalty for Méduse !

7 Jan , 2016  

Royalty Jelly Lesson

New year: new section !

Every week, we will explore a new trend with our fun and quirky eye! This week, we say yes to Royalty fashion.

It doesn’t take much to be a Queen Bee. With all the right crown jewels, it’s just a few steps away. This year we’re taking a step away from mustards shades and chunky knitwear and we’re stepping into a parlour of royalty. What holds court this season are flourishes of hard clutches, soft velvets, silk jacquards, fur and plenty of jewels.

Rich marsala, classic royal purple and divine ebony are charming the scene right now; take note of pieces from Ted Baker with an embellished red-wine dress, a cranberry faux fur scarf from Jigsaw and a regal royal embroidered clutch from Zara.

Think majestic mode this season and you’ll be on track to stately styles just like Queen Bey herself.

Méduse talks with… Hopelessly Loving

6 Jan , 2016  

Margaux is an instagram pro
Last year (yes, 2015 is gone!), we caught up with fashion and lifestyle blogger Parisienne Rose who loves nothing more than chic style and road trips. This week, we welcome Margaux, Instagramer of Hopelessly Loving.
She’s a lady who knows what to work in the winter season and she certainly knows how to cook some mean Nutella pancakes. Instagramer, Hopelessly Loving joins us today to share her ‘Nordic cocooning’ style and how to make Sunday mornings really special.

‘I’m wild about the Jumper boots with the glittery touch’

A pair of quirky socks! We. Love. It.

A pair of quirky socks! We. Love. It.

Méduse – Hopelessly.loving! We’re totally in love with your snapshots! Could you tell us in a few words about yourself? How did your Instagram journey begin?
Margaux – My name is Margaux, I’m 22 and I work in real estate. I’m addicted to shopping, snacking (luckily I don’t take ANY weight) and I’m passionate about animals. I’m the proud owner of a beagle and a cat. My Instagram journey started about 2 years ago. I created an account out of curiosity and at first I was a bit confused with the hashtags, but I quickly caught up and now I can’t get enough of it!
Outfit of the day!

Outfit of the day!

Méduse – Fashion time! In your opinion, what is the major trend for the autumn / winter season? Are there any particular tones that you’ll be rocking this season?
Margaux – I would say the biggest trend this year would have to be long coats. But that’s not for me as I’m pretty short but on other people, I love it! This winter, I’m all for a ‘Nordic cocooning’ mode. A puffa jacket, thick knitwear, UGG’s and I’m ready to face the cold!
Alpine outfit!

Méduse – You’re all for a good breakfast! Do you have a secret recipe to help us face the morning chill this season?
Margaux – I do love massive breakfasts, and as I don’t have much free time during the week, I make sure to do it properly on Sundays: nutella pancakes (top secret recipe from my grandma haha), hot chocolate, freshly squeezed orange juice and there you go!
The perfect breakfast!

The perfect breakfast!

Méduse – We love your daily outfits, and so we have a challenge for you! Our new collection is out now – so you’re mission is to create a styleboard with your fave pair!
Margaux – I love your new collection! I’m wild about the Jumper, with the glittery touch – it’s an awesome detail. I’ve chosen to pair it with this outfit: it’s simple and comfy – I love it!
