The Jelly Lesson: Accessorising your Feet

20 Aug , 2015  

01 set feature 34

Your weekly jelly lesson, from us to you.

Jelly Step 1: Own those toes!
It’s time to glam up with toe rings: accessorize with some subtle
silver bands like these from Jewellery Box,
or if you’re feeling fancier, go for diamante gems.
Wear under Argent JAVANA to create a big wow in one small step!

lesson 1

Jelly Step 2: Sock’s Up!
Why not pair your NIKITA heeled jellies with your favourite frilly socks,
such as this 
gorgeous ASOS pair? Knee-high or ankle height –
how will you work them with your style?

lesson 2

Jelly Step 3: All for Anklets!
Anklets are the cutest 
way of dressing up while dressing down.
Delicate chains, like this one from Agathafun charms, and little pops of colour:
that’s what they are all about. Wear with Bronze SALSA jellies to show off that jewel shine!

lesson 3

Jelly Step 4: A pop of pedicure!
Time to go 
wild with a little nail illustration and brightness,
and those Nacre CAPRI jellies will let that colour shine through!
Will you paint your toes red to match your lipstick, using this hot OPI colour?
Go for green polish spots to match your skirt? Or just the classic
French manicure for your feet? Have some fun!

lesson 4

Jelly Step 5: Back to basics!
Your feet carry you
through your world – why not celebrate them as they are?
Take a moment to dress down, embrace the day
with nothing but your fave pair of Meduse classic SUN jellies,
from Noir to Bonbon. Sometimes less can truly be more!

lesson 5

However you decide to dress up your feet, use Meduse as your starting point to define your look! Be it jewels, socks or polish – whatever it is, have fun, express your style and don’t be afraid to go accessory crazy. We’re all about being adventurous whatever it may be – why not follow our lead? :)

13 Aug , 2015  

rio jutam

Your weekly jelly lesson, from us to you.

Jelly step 1: Take time to LAUGH. It’s summer,
which means seriousness is cast away with the clouds.
And what better footwear is there to have a giggle
in the sun with, than well, our SUN sandals? Pick Paille to match the rays!

sun

Jelly step 2: Start saying YES. Yes, you’re not working late,
and you will get some ice cream instead. Yes, you will take
more time to hang out with friends. Yes, you think that the
perfect pair of shoes to say ‘yes’ in is Vert d’eau JUTAM.

Jelly step 3: Remember to have FUN. Swap work
for silliness and make room for some excitement,
be it going out or staying in. Let your feet match
the fun by wearing a pair of Groseille SALSADA!

saldano

Jelly step 4: Be ADVENTUROUS. Nothing says
adventure more than Gris/Bleu RIO: be ready
to explore and discover, and be brave enough to
take the leap into the unknown.

rio gris bleu

Jelly step 5: EMBRACE LIFE. Be ready for the
day ahead, enjoy change and look forward
to the future: the classic Vieux rose/Crêpe JUMPY
boot will be with you every step of the way!

Where are you planning to go with your pair of Méduse? We’re off to get some of that ice cream ASAP to enjoy the hot weather while it lasts! Don’t forget to have a bit of fun – wearing Méduse is your little reminder that there’s always time to enjoy every day!

Méduse & Charlotte Hollycat

12 Aug , 2015  

Charlotte hollycat

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

‘I hope my Méduses tour the world!’

Méduse talks with… Charlotte!

Cats and Méduse – probably the two coolest things on the planet, and y’know what? Charlotte knows it! Let us introduce you to Charlotte Hollycat – a happy-snapping photography lover, rainbow adorer and #MeduseColor winner!

M – You are now part of the Méduse family! Who are you Jelly lover?

C – My name is Charlotte or @ _Hollycat on Instagram, I’m nearly 25 and I’ve been living in Montpellier since the start of this year. I’m passionate about photography, a summer-lover and I’m a big kid! It’s one of the reasons why I took my Méduses to live with me, down in the south of France with my boyfriend. It’s funny that you say that I’m part of the Méduse family, it’s true because my boyfriend is fascinated by jellyfish! I’m currently working for a mobile and fibre network but I hope to change soon, but I’m not sure what field just yet!

11830714_10207089698899049_1026728182_n

 

M – Méduse often recalls sentimental memories and stories from the past and present. What’s your story with Méduse?

C – Indeed, I think that with everyone Méduse reminds us of our childhood – when we went to the seaside with our parents, we wore our Méduses in the water. It wasn’t for style purposes, but more to avoid cuts from shells or stings from sea creatures; but today, we wear Méduse to show off its fashion features. Youngsters and older generations are wearing their Méduses to go to the beach or even downtown – they’re so comfortable! When I hear the word  « Méduse » I think of the shoes, but also the animal, naturally because of my boyfriend! I find the animal fascinating as they’re so colourful, just like your lovely shoes! Colours that make you think about summer, happiness… life.

11805734_10207043511064382_1834051141_n

M – Going back to #MeduseColor! What’s your favourite colour and what does it represent to you?

C – It’s a tough choice, as I love many colours, and I have my phases. Many will say red because it’s the colour of sensuality and love – it’s the colour to give a ‘pizzazz’ to a woman’s face. But if I had to choose a particular colour I would go for blue, sky blue, because to me it represents freedom, the ability to fly away and to travel. But also, all the beings that are now up above, that we love and won’t forget… they are watching us from the sky. There is also ocean-blue which is a reminder of the vast stretch where jellyfish live, I’m absolutely fascinated with sea life, but at the same time it scares me a little. But as I said, I love summer, beaches and Méduse!

10153025_1069172606445796_1793762897388292444_n

M – Speaking about fashion! You won three pairs of Méduses, each with a very different style. What outfit will you match them with? Where will you journey to in them? We’d love to see some snapshots!

C – I’m not the kind of girl who will prepare her outfit the night before, or ask herself how she is going to wear a specific piece of clothing. I’m more of a ‘wanna try any style combination’ type of person, even if I’m running late! I love looking through my stuff to experiment with numerous outfits. So it’s hard for me to answer your question. I will style my Méduses with dresses, jeans, shorts… ANYTHING! It’s really down to the spur of the moment. And where will I walk in them? Well anywhere I’ll be going, I love to travel! I hope my Méduses tour the world!

11815993_10207089698539040_2035598940_n

You promised that your Méduses would go on adventures – and you’ve kept it ;-). Charlotte, we hope you make many more memories with Méduse! Whether you’re hanging by jellyfish in your SUN Méduse or simply going for a stroll in your Jumpy boots during the Autumn showers! Keep up to date with Charlotte’s daily snapshots on her Instagram here!

Méduse Talks… With Lauren de Samonac

5 Aug , 2015  

Lauren bloggeuse

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

‘I actually have a ‘Jelly Fish’ tattoo on my ankles – it just shows that Méduse will live with me forever.’

She’s a sassy entrepreneur with a keen eye for fashion! She loves mixing retro styles with the fashion of the now, and she can’t help but bounce, skip and prance in her Méduse! We speak to Lauren, a blogger and proud owner of a vintage e-store. Et voila!

M – First things first! We’ve seen you sporting our straw-coloured Méduse and we’re intrigued to know more about you! So tell us, who are you Lauren or Loraine? 😉

L – Lauren Samonac is a very long name meaning a lot of things… My name is actually Loraine but Lauren is much quicker to spell 😉 ! I am the daughter of a village shopkeeper and I always learned to deal with myself, as my ten fingers led me to be the independent person I am today. My mum was always busy, doing tons of things other than shopping; my mum wasn’t a fashionista but a talented entrepreneur. As I’m a kinesthetic learner, my education took an artistic turn – I built up my professional experience in the world of show business as an actress, a light and sound technician and a stage decorator! Some wonderful experiences which led me to try my luck as an entrepreneur today.

image1

M – We’ve noticed that not only do you run a personal blog, but you’re also a part of a second-hand / vintage project! Could you tell us a bit more about Duffledud? How does this project have an effect on your own personal style?

L – Duffledud was born in 2012 and allowed me to share my love of bargain-hunting and wearing fashion pieces mixed with cool vintage bits! It’s a way for me to feel like a kid: like being my own person, showing off my own style – that’s what fashion should be about! But Duffledud is slowly coming to an end unfortunately… Because of the big retail industry competition and their low prices, my e-shop is going through a rough patch, despite holding on to budget prices and ‘little-old-me’ trying to keep it up, until the big CRACK! It’s so much easier to buy a basic pink blouse that everyone has, than buy a pink blouse with a little character :-/. This has been a rich experience; from seeing my blog blossom, I decided to focus my energy on building a new project (still secret) to keep going! 

lauren hat - Copy

M – You shared a lovely story with us where you mention how our Méduse were a part of your childhood! What place do our jellies have in your life today?

L – Méduses ?? Definitely my childhood !!! As my parents were working a lot, we didn’t go on holiday much, but when we did, we went to the seaside! I’m very sensitive on the feet as my father used to tickle me to wake me up! I never really liked the burning heat of the sand and I really didn’t like the idea of ​​knowing that my feet could walk on something strange, like a hook! (true story!). Fed-up with my complaints, my mother bought me my first pair of Méduses when I was 6 and they were navy blue. Then, when I was about 8, I got a transparent pair, and I felt like I was wearing dolly shoes – so practical as there are no laces!  Moreover, the idea of ​​being able to set foot in the water without risking anything is just great! Even though I’m 28, my habits have not changed and I am pleased that I’ve been able to find a pair of Méduses because they are so useful, they have a nostalgic touch, and not many people dare to wear them yet, but they are missing out on this true fashion accessory! I like the origin and the history – it is a French product, with a unique style for both men, women, youngsters and oldies – it’s even worn by fashionistas around the world! As they say: ‘never two without three’, my third pair of SUN Paille are well into my ‘shoesing’ and this time, I’m sure my feet won’t grow anymore ;-).

lauren jellies

M – And now for your challenge! We challenge you to create a styleboard inspired by your Paille SUN Méduse! Are you up for it? 😉

L – I’m taking up your challenge! It is a great honour for me to highlight my pair of Méduse! It’s if my story with Méduse was written in the stars… I actually have a ‘Jelly Fish’ tattoo on my ankles – it just shows that Méduse will live with me forever.

Attachment-1

Lauren – we love you. You’re officially the coolest cat around! Having Méduse tattooed shows you’re a true jelly lover, and we won’t forget that! Thanks for sharing your stories and style tips with us! It just goes to show that we too love mixing vintage styles with hip-happening fashion – YOU GOT IT! Keep up to date with Lauren’s blog and her retro store DuffleDud!

Smile! It’s Ingrid

29 Jul , 2015  

smilingrid

At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…

‘I had a pair of jelly sandals when I was younger and they were the only shoes I would wear’

Méduse talks with… Smilingrid!

She’s a girl who rocks a Hollywood smile, but she comes from buzzing Boston! Ingrid aka ‘Smiling Ingrid’ is a bright and colourful blogger who aims to inspire and share her zest for life! Red lipstick, coffee and jelly shoes are her loves – to mention a few! Take it away Ingrid!

M – So Ingrid, we’ve been looking at your blog and you mention a number of things you love in life (we just mentioned a few above! 😉 ) How would you summarise it in a few lines?

I – I am a very happy person, which is why my blog name combines “smiling” and my name “Ingrid”. My longest-standing passions include language, reading, and (of course) fashion! The first passion led me to study French, the second to study literature and, combined with the third, begin my blog… which then led me to the ever-fashionable Meduse!

M – We’re curious to know – how did you discover Méduse? What do our jelly shoes evoke for you?

I – I discovered Meduse through your blogger collaborations! I had a pair of jelly sandals when I was younger and they were the only shoes I would wear – I even wore them as flower girl at my aunt’s wedding! That memory is the one evoked by your brand, of nostalgia and happiness… paired with lots of beautiful flowers!

M – CHALLENGE: On your blog, you show an unconditional love for fashion! So we must ask… what’s your favourite pair of Méduse? With this, we challenge you to create the perfect outfit with these shoes and show it in a styleboard! Feel free to match it with a varnish, a lipstick… we know you have a taste for those things! 😉

I – Oh my gosh, such a hard choice! I love the Nikita for a night out and the Camino for rainy days… but I think my favorite pair of Méduses would have to be the Sun in gold glitter, because they are the grown up, more chic version of the jellies I had as a child! These are fun!

Méduse on the beach
beach styleboard

Méduse for Fall

fall styleboard

 

M – You’re a jet setter, always travelling around the world! Where are you going next? And which pair of Méduse would you pack in your suitcase?

I – I’m heading to Cancun at the end of the month! I would definitely pack a pair of the Méduses Sunlight in Corail to bring with me – they’d be the perfect color against the sea and sand, plus it would be so cool to see them glow at night!

We know it, you know it, Ingrid knows it! She’s got that Méduse vibe that runs in our colourful world and we love it! Her zest for life makes us want to put on our glowing Méduse and skip towards the sun! What a gal! Thank you so much for joining us Ingrid! We love your enthusiasm, and your blog keeps us buzzing! Keep up to date with her snapshots and thoughts on her blog Smiling Ingrid here!

 A bientôt !

Jelly Step Five: We know it’s not just us, when the
rest of the west just can’t get enough of Kawaii
fashion. This bad-ass trend has inspired Laura
Coleman’s ‘Kawaii Eyes’ scarf at Wolf & Badger
.

Work this scarf with our NIKITA in Saumon and
all eyes will be on you!

We like to think that Kawaii style matches the way we think – it’s bold, colourful, daring, original and a definite trend-setter! So how about fusing the east with the west by trying out one of our styles this summer? Which look has dazzled you? (we can’t choose!)
