Today is not Sunday, but I still wanted to call this post ‘Peter Pan Collar Sunday’, as I wore it on Sunday. I associate the girly, feminine collar with a traditional, English tea time in the Savoy, pretty sun dresses and Lea Seydoux in her role as ‘femme de chambre’ (maid) in the fabulously quirky movie “Grand Hotel Budapest”. At this point in fashion time it’s especially difficult for me to hold back on purchases as so many designers and labels are paying homage to the 50 and 60s. For me, this was the most flattering fashion era of all: From Peter Pan collars to A -line shift dresses, geometric pattern and big, tousled hair – the women of this time had it all (at least wardrobe wise)!

If you’re not already sitting, I suggest you sit down now. This cooky cute tea cups necklace depicting Alice, her rabbit and cupcakes is from French luxury costume jeweller Les Néréides N2.

Lea combines a red tartan dress with a black leather jacket – a cute, age appropriate look
If you are wondering who on earth Lea Sedoux is, just think of the Prada Candy ad! The Lady with the fringe and the long blond hair in the macaron pink dress is the perfect fit for one of my favourite perfumes, the sweet gourmand scent Candy. Lea also starred in movies such as “Midnight in Paris” with Marion Cotillard and Mission Impossible.
Miuccia Prada says of Lea, 28: “She could be wearing lots of jewelry and a crocodile jacket, but she has something very natural about her.”
Lea Sedoux personifies to me what is known as French chic: The tousled hair, minimalistic make-up, natural charme, without being too done, too manicured, too styled.
Get inspired by Lea Sedoux natural seduction!
