Red shoes, No knickers

Business in Paris

What started off this whole detoxing business for me was the idea of shopping your wardrobe.  I simply love the idea of finding a fabulous outfit, pieces that you wouldn’t have necessarily put together before, from clothes that you already own.  Knowing my former Flatmate’s wardrobe like the back of my hand I was super excited to go and give her a Sweet treat and find two outfits for business meetings she had in Paris.  Having a list of guidelines to adhere to narrowed down the choices I could pick for her but is always when I’m at my best:

* Travelling by Eurostar on both days I need a comfortable outfit to sit in and lug my bag around in

* I’ll be on the go all day, going from meeting to meeting, so will need good footwear that doesn’t make my feet ache

* I need to be warm but also smart, especially for the meetings I have on Thursday

* I don’t want to be carrying too much stuff with me

I was in my element!  As you know I have documented well my love of Paris and dressing for her {see here and here} and knew exactly the type of things Flattie would look good in.  Unfortunately I had to deal with the below state of her clothes:

You can tell she hasn’t been living with me for a while!

Regardless of the jumble sale style of her wardrobe rail I ventured on and the first outfit I found for her involved cool, chic winter whites, sleek greys and a killer boot

 A cozy knit dress to travel in, a sheer pussy bow blouse as a nod to Paris, a smart cream jacket plus faux fur gillet, a floral print scarf to accesorize with, classic boots and leather bag to hold her ipad, travel guide, cd’s for her client, phone and wallet. PERFECT!

Day two required a smarter outfit but still needed that warmth, comfort, smartness and a little competition for the Parisian woman.

This involved a stretchy pencil skirt, a thin knit, a Westwood~esque jacket {dyed by Tim~gifted to me~passed on to Flattie}, cute and comfortable Mary~Jane’s and the ultimate accessory for France ~ the black silk scarf.

Her underwear was matching, her nightwear sexy, her hair and make-up immaculate and her luggage classic.

Paris you’d better watch out…someone’s coming to show you how it’s done and they mean business.
