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!

16 Dec , 2015  

Catch up with Rosyne on her blog and instagram
Last week we caught up with Marie Journet, a sporty fashionista with a taste for Méduse boots. This week in the hot seat is Parisienne Rose!
She’s a globe trotter who’s a nurse by day and a fashion blogger at night. Blogger Parisienne Rose joins us this week to reveal her favourite trends of the season and what’s the secrets behind a top road trip in America!

‘I’m falling for the Flamille wellies and the Jumpmat chelsea boots…’

M – You’re an Instagrammer, blogger and newly Parisian who reveals all about fashion, lifestyle and beauty! So… who’s Parisienne Rose?
R – Well, Parisienne Rose is simply a girl from Brittany named Rosyne who went to Paris for her studies and has worked there since September! I just got my degree in nursing and I’m currently working in an operating room. Quite different from my Instagram and my blog, you’re gonna tell me! Well, that’s my way to escape from work in my nurse uniform, I’m still a coquettish woman! I especially love fashion and beauty and I try my best to show it in my Instagram pictures – and now my blog as I feature tips and my fave picks!

M – Fashion time! According to you, what are the major trends of the Autumn / Winter season? Is there a style or particular tones you’ll be sporting?

R- The tones of Autumn / Winter are grey / plum and I also have a soft spot for pine tree green. Not to mention a festive touch with silver glitter! Thick knitwear is also one of my faves with cigarette trousers – it’s pretty much the perfect outfit with silver loafers (I’m thinking about the ones I fell for last week!).

M – You recently went on a road trip in the USA, how cool! Could you tell us a bit more about this great adventure?
R – Yes! It was a trip to celebrate my degree! It was awesome! What can I tell you about this country that I loved and where I’m considering settling in the future… Well, everything is disproportionate in the US yet people are all really nice and polite! Not like here in France… I discovered amazing landscapes and also super cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas! I found our planning for the trip was perfect. Some moments of escape in parks and then back to the cities – it was amazing! Every week on my blog, I post an article about a step in my journey. Make sure to stop by, this weekend – it’s Las Vegas!
The mythic Route 66 in California

M – Challenge time! The new collection is out now – so we challenge you to create a styleboard with your favourite pair!
R – I’m falling for the Flamille wellies and the Jumpmat chelsea boots in Caramel. With the high boots, I picture a pair of tights, my suede black skirt, a lace white top and a grey wooly cardigan. A simple outfit that can easily be worn on a party night. With the chelsea boots, I’m thinking slim black pants, my black and green checked shirt and my beige trench! A more laid back style, for a day to shop!

Méduse talks with… Marie Journet

9 Dec , 2015  

Marie is a french instagram star from Montpellier
Last week we got together with young, wild and care-free fashion blogger Camille of As Wildchild! This week, it’s all about Marie Journet
Her Instagram is a breath of fresh air, and she certainly knows how to style up for the season. Catching up with us this week is Marie Journet, a sporty, fashionista who has a taste for Méduse boots.

“I’m the proud owner of a pair of Méduse boots!”

M – Hey there Marie! On your awe-inspiring Instagram, you show us snapshots of your daily life. Could you tell us a bit more about yourself, and how your journey on Instagram started?
MJ – Hi Team Méduse, thank you so much! My name is Marie, I’m 18, and I come from Montpellier in southern France. I got started with Instagram about 2 years ago, and at first, I was just posting landscapes, travel pictures etc… then came to me the idea of posting pictures about my everyday life and since then, it’s grown to be what it is today!
A breakfast full of vitamins!

The way to start the day.

M – With the chilly cold weather in the air, we’re wrapping up for the winter! What are your favourite styles for the season? Are there any tones you’ll be rocking?
MJ – In terms of winter fashion, I’m opting for warm wooly jumpers… I love them! As I’m a huge fan of skirts and shorts, I can’t live without them, so I’ll be teaming them up with tights. And as for tones I’ll be wearing this season, I’m loving grey, blue and burgundy.

M – You’re an athlete with bundles of energy! Do you have any tips and tricks to stay in shape this winter?
MJ – To stay in good shape this winter, the key word is motivation! It’s freezing outside and you’re gonna need an extra dose of it to go out for a run or hit the gym. The most important thing though is to have FUN and not push yourself!

Out for a run… what a view!

M – We have a fashion challenge for you! You’re the proud owner of a pair of Jumpy boots. Could you mock up a styleboard with your pair?

Méduse talks with… As Wildchild

2 Dec , 2015  

Camille is a fashion, food and lifestyle blogger
Last week we caught up with fashionista and food Emma, and this week we’re talking to a blogger of similar tastes – ‘As Wildchild’.
Catch her cooking up a storm or find her being in touch with her Zen. Camille is a fashion, lifestyle and food blogger who lives the care-free life, and loves nothing more than being ‘Gipsy & Wild’.

“I think THE piece this winter is the suede or denim skirt”

Brandy Melville Cardigan and hat and Primark dress

Camille wears a Brandy Melville cardigan and hat, with a Primark dress

M – You’re a blogger who never stops writing about fashion, food & lifestyle, among other great topics!. With ‘Be Gipsy & Wild’ as your motto, we’d love to know, what is the meaning behind the name?
C – Haha so let me begin with ‘Wild’ simply because this word echoes freedom to me, the idea of not caring too much about things and letting the flow of the wind carry me. It also relates to nature, which I love. I’m not waiting for things to happen in my life, I just follow my heart and go. And ‘Gipsy’ because I love the folk and the travelling feeling of the word… it creates an atmosphere that I really love. It also has a sense of authenticity and freedom (I’m a traveller in the soul). I don’t follow codes and I hate to be labelled… to me it’s a word with a wide meaning. Beyond their definition, they have different connotations to people and that’s what I like, they don’t label me.
Brandy Melville tee-shirt and coat, Zara denim, Deena & Ozzy shoes and L’usine à lunettes sunglasses

Once again, Camille rocks a Brandy Melville t-shirt and coat, Zara denim jeans, Deena & Ozzy shoes and L’usine à Lunettes sunglasses

M – A fashion Q! We’ve noticed you especially love vintage, boho-chic outfits. In your opinion, what will be the major trend this winter? Is there any particular tone you’ll be rocking?
C – 70’s are making their comeback but it’s not the style I identify the most to… Camel, ochre, mustard, burgundy and pine tones are huge this season but they don’t really suit me! I’m more into grey, navy blues, white, beige… etc ^^
I think THE piece this winter is a suede or denim skirt, with a line of buttons in front.  I also have a soft spot for polo necks.
Brandy Melville jumper, Shein skirt, Rosegal & Brandy Melville bracelets, les partisanes watch and Pretty Wire necklace

M – You’re a total foodie, and your blog is full of tasty treats! What is the kookiest dish or ingredient you’ve come across in the culinary world?
C – I think the ‘kookiest’ ingredient I’ve used were lotus roots for a culinary challenge. I recently had  the chance to have dinner at the U’ni restaurant in Nantes where I explored surprising, yet and delicious flavours.

Read more about the fig tartlet recipe on Camille’s blog

M – Time for a challenge! The new Méduse collection for rainy days is out now! With your favourite pair, we challenge you to create a styleboard with your very own touch!

Camille’s styleboard features Méduse Flamille boots, Asos tunic and denim gilet, Pimkie hat and Urban Outfitters clutch

Thank you Camille, for joining us this week! We’ll definitely take note of the trends you have your eye on this season! Stay up to date with her latest happenings on her blog and Instagram.

Polka dots fashion tips
Your weekly ‘How To’, from us to you.
Last week we gave you a style lesson that got you thinking – how to match your Méduse with winter hats. This week, we have lots of love for polka dot spots!

 

Jelly Step One: You Guess-ed it!
Monochrome is a match made in
heaven – that’s why we’re lusting
after a simple sweater by Guess.
It’s classy and chic, no wonder why
we’ve matched it with our Flamille!

Jelly Step Two: Paint it with colour!
Mix it up a little by clashing rainbow
polka dots with geometric shapes
like this gorgeous scarf from Esprit.
We love the splashes of colour with
our Jumpy Taupe / Vieu Rose!

Jelly Step Three: Animal spots!
Take a step back and roll back to
the 90’s with a polka dot printed cap
from American Apparel! We’re loving
the blue with our animalistic blue
Jumperic boots!

Jelly Step Four: Keep watch, on the spots!
Add a little embellishment to your outfit
with a cool and quirky polka dot watch by
Johnny Loves Rosie. Match this cute
accessory with our Camaro Rouge!

Jelly Step Five: Have the hots, for spots!
If you fancy going even further back in time,
why not head to the 60’s with this polka dot
A-line skirt from French Connection! Dare
to match it with our spotty Jumpy Panthère!
French Connection FCUK skirt Jumpy Panthère
We’ve got spotty, dotty mad! Whether teeny-tiny like petit pois, or round and sound like bubbles, polka dots are a print that will never go out of style.
