The store is more than just a brand it’s a lifestyle where every detail is carefully crafted and curated with either books or home decorations. Icicle’s mindset is Made [...]

Vintage Stores in Paris

I find that the clothes you find in vintage stores always have so much more character than the typical high street stores. Nothing is worse than buying a piece of clothing and as soon as you leave the store you’ve spotted at least 5 people wearing exactly the same item. They are always unique pieces [...]

Winter Walks

Despite the chilly weather, it’s always nice to go on a refreshing walk in winter. It’s great to enjoy the crisp blue sky (when it’s actually sunny!).  Grab a take-away coffee to keep you warm whilst you wander through the Tuileries. Find one of the iconic green chairs with your coffee - it’s ideal to [...]

Winter Wear

Every December I always enjoy passing through Place Vendôme to see all the decorations. There’s something magical about the Christmas season in Paris. Seeing the floating trees at Le Bon Marché whilst trying to find the perfect gift. Exploring the Marché de Noël in the Tuileries and taking in the scent of roasted chestnuts. And [...]

Autumn Tones

Neutral, warm, muted tones. That time when the weather becomes more crisp and chilly. The landscapes and cityscapes become amber, auburn, golden. Autumn is that wonderful time of year when you get to start layering (in a sophisticated manner). For outfits I like to have quite muted, neutral colours but have a dash of lightness, [...]

The Summer Shirt

I love the look of wearing a shirt over swimwear – just throwing it over a bikini or swimsuit. Perfect to get through summer whilst tanning without burning. The shirt is something that is loose, light but still sophisticated. And choosing one in a bright colour makes it not too formal. I have always loved [...]

How to wear knitwear in summer

The idea of wearing knits in summer sounds rather odd, you might immediately think of cardigans and jumpers. But recently I bought some knitwear pieces, and I can’t wait for winter to wear them. For some reason summer knits remind me of the Côte d’Azur and Brigitte Bardot in the 1950’s. I’m always looking for [...]

Summer dress in the city

Paris in the summer has something special about it, more than any other city I’ve visited. Usually I don’t get to stay in Paris for too long during the summer, but this year I decided to spend more time enjoying the city whilst it’s warm. Whether it’s going to the markets in the morning, strolling [...]

Blue Tones in Place Vendôme

  Now that Spring is finally here I love to wear just a blouse with jeans - goodbye to heavy jackets!  I’m always drawn to a silk version.  In Spring it’s perfect weather to wear this wonderful fabric - thin enough not to be too warm and the long sleeves are great if you want [...]
