Last week we brought you an interview with fashionista Adeline, blogger of ‘Le Laboratoire Des Modes’! And this week, you’ve tuned into a quirky Q&A with Marion, Brèves au féminin!
Marion is a funky fashionista, with a lot to say! From her jet-setting travels, to her younger days with Méduse, Marion shares her special moments from the past to the present!
“When I was young and living by the seaside, I used to spend my afternoons rocking glitter Méduses!”
M – Brèves au féminin… What’s the story behind this lovely name?
B – When I started my blog in September 2014, deciding on a name wasn’t easy. I wanted something original, French and not too restrictive or I wouldn’t be able to talk about a wide range of topics. It’s my mum who actually had the idea « Brèves au Féminin », and I think it fits the blog’s spirit: a place where we can speak about anything – but with a focus on fashion and beauty.
M – You’re a true jet-setter! What’s your favourite destination you’ve visited?
B – Since I was a kid, I’ve been a globetrotter. I had the chance to discover many places, in France and abroad. I loved New York so much, but my best memory is a family road trip to Scotland. We went all over the country with our old Jaguar, visited several museums on the Scottish culture (kilts, whisky distilleries, Loch Ness…), discovered breath-taking landscapes in the Highlands, went to Edinburgh, Glasgow and we even slept in a “haunted” castle! I could spend hours telling you about our journey! If you have the chance to visit Scotland one day, go for it!
M – You’re now living in Nantes, next to where Méduse is from! What could you tell us about Nantes and fashion?
B – Nantes is such a dynamic city! There is always something to do (events, exhibition, festivals…). The city centre is populated with shops, both big names and independent designers. There’s plenty, for any taste and any style. And being (too much of) a shopaholic, is totally fine by me…
M – We have a challenge for you! The new collection is out now! So we challenge you to create a styleboard with your fave pair!
B – When I was young and living by the seaside, I used to spend my afternoons rocking glitter Méduses! No surprise that I’m all about the shimmering one: the « JUMPAIL ». I also, really love the JUMPAT, JUMPMAT and JUMPER they’re all boots that I could definitely welcome to my shoe collection. For my look, I’m picking simple items that can be accessorized with some eccentric pieces, to bring an original touch to the style. With these cute glittery boots, I’ve chosen a marine blue autumn dress, a burgundy hat and a matching bag. To make the outfit stand out even more, I’ve chosen a slightly oversized black coat and a pair of tights. It’s a seasonal style, that I could totally wear, even on rainy days… and with my feet dry! 😉
Et voila! Thank you Marion for sharing a few words with us! We have to say – we’re now in the mood for shopping! Catch up with Marion’s latest happenings in fashion, lifestyle and travels on her blog Brèves au féminin!
