Can you tell us how and why you started Mode & The City?

I started Mode & The City almost 12 years ago! At the time there were very few blogs in France and I spontaneously decided to start one, without ever imagining that it could become my career! I quickly managed to build my community, and although we have seen many changes occur in this space within the past 12 years, many of my readers are still with me today; this means so much to me!

J’ai commencé Mode & The City il y a presque 12 ans! A l’époque il y avait trés peu de blogs en France et je me suis lancée de manière très sponatanée, sans jamais imaginer que cela puisse un jour devenir mon métier! J’ai trés vite réussi à me créer une communauté e, malgré la métamorphose de ce milieu en 12 ans, beaucoup de filles me suivent encore aujourd’hui ce qui me touche énormément!

How would you describe your signature style?

I frequently describe muy style as “classic with a twist”. I love classic and timeless pieces that always stay in style, but I also love adding accessories that are bit more original and “fashion| to my looks, to add a touch of originality and make them more fun!

Je décris souvent mon style comme “classic with a twist”. J’aime les pièces classiques et intemporelles qui durent dans le temps et ne se démodent pas mais je prends aussi beaucoup de plaisir à ajouter des accessoires un peu plus originaux er “mode” à mes tenues pour leur donner cette petite touche d’originalité qui les rent uniques et plus fun! 

We love your mix of modern with vintage inspired textures and prints; What inspires you, and what are your favourite pieces to play with? 

Similarly to my answer above, I love classic and timeless pieces and these are the ones that I most enjoy playing with! My favorite pieces that I enjoy mixing are my beige trench coat, an Hermès carré (I can wear it as a belt, in my hair, as a scarf…), and my collections of tote bags that I love wearing for every occasion!

Comme je le disais plus haut j’adore les pièces classiques et intemporelles et c’est celles que je prends le plus de plaisir à twister! Mes pièces favorites que j’adore mixer et transformer, mon trench beige, un carré Hermès (à porter en ceinture, dans les cheveaux, au cou…), et ma collection de sacs paniers que j’aime porter à toutes les occasions! 

Accessories are always a big part of your look; What comes first the clothing or the accessory?

I love accessories! When I create a look, I usually start by choosing the clothing, but I know that the accessories are what will really transform the look and make it more interesting. I love bags, shoes, hats and bérets, I wear them almost every day, no matter the season! My ultimate accessory: my red lipstick that I won’t be seen without; it is my signature look!

J’adore les accessoires! Quand je compose une tenue je commence plutôt par les vêtements mais je sais que ce sont les accessoires qui la transformeront vraiment et la rendront intéressante. J’adore les sacs, les chaussures et les chapeaux et bérets; j’en porte quasiment tous les jours quelle que soit la saison! Et mon ultimate accessoire; mon rouge à lèvres rouge que je ne quitte jamais, c’est ma signature! 

We LOVE your food recipes! Do you have any plans to incorporate #LTKhome in your LIKEtoKNOW.it profile?

Yes! I moved a year ago and I really enjoy spending time at home! My community loves recipes and interior decor so I will be focusing on publishing more content in the upcoming months!

Oui! J’ai déménagé il y a un an et je prends beaucoup de plaisir à passer du temps chez moi! Ma commiunauté adore les recettes et la déco alors je vais mettre l’accent sur ces sujets dans les moi à venir.
