SAVE THE DATE: NINA!

 

Hello my little lemons!

Save the date and write in your agenda: on the 31st of August at 10 am, Nina is coming on Wear Lemonade! Let me introduce to you… Nina! I am so excited to show you our next coming piece because Nina could not have existed… I drew it and then I erased it because I thought it was too complicated right after dungarees… I showed my drawings to my friends and they were unanimous, telling me something like “Keep it, if you create it, we are going to wear it for sure!!!!” I cannot say no when it is about my friends who are looking at me with their little eyes you know… For this reason, I put Nina again in the collection but under some conditions! We worked so hard with Laure on the perfect fabric that will fit all morphologies…

It has been really difficult with the fittings on all morphologies we could find but it worked! I wanted a playsuit like in the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” movie that we could try on in our bestfriend closet and stole immediately… I wanted to have ¾ batwing sleeves that you could, in addition to the classic way, roll up to elbows for the adventure, or even above for a 80s effect! To feminize the outfit, there are the boat neckline (once again) because we just love it, and a fitted waist but not too much thanks to an elastic! For the bottom, it is a carrot pants form with a high-waist so that you have the sensation to have long legs even if you are 1m60 tall… (true story). I almost forgot to tell you but you have two pocket flaps on the buttocks in order to have a better effect because there is nothing worst than pants that completely do not suit the back of the silhouette…

About the fabric, it is crease-resistant. It is a crêpe (a bit heavy) that gives a nice look to the cut. It is the kind of piece of clothes you can wear at any time: you wash it at night and you can immediate wear it on the next morning and no need for ironing! Nina is one piece of clothes but a complete outfit at the same time and it is perfect when you do not really know what to wear… with red lipstick and heels or just comfy sneakers and a bun in your hair. You can also bring it everywhere, in your suitcase, thanks to the crease-resistant material; Nina is always ready to go! Anyway, I am so excited because Nina is coming next week! I also wanted to tell you that the legs are a bit long in order to fit all girls. Do not worry, you can cut and hem, we already showed you how to do here, or even turn-up and I advice you to mark a little point manually to fix the seams on the sides and here we are! Ready to go back to school/work!

As good news never come alone, the week after the launch of Nina, we are going to put 3 golden tickets in your orders that will allow you to win a pair of Stan Smith from Adidas to complete the outfit (only for clothes orders instead of patterns ones this time)! Remember these pictures of our muse Elodie wearing her white Stan Smith! Save the date, next Monday at 10am, Nina is coming on Wear Lemonade and Make My Lemonade, in a ready-to-wear version for €119 and a DIY pattern for €14.90! I send you big kisses!

Thank you Pauline Darley for these pictures taken in our new Lemonade Studio entrance!

HAPPY FRIDAY #73

 

Happy Friday my kitties!

I know, for the people who follow me for a while, you have been a bit surprised to see my hair jungle in my previous post… It is summer time, my hair goes fairer and grows, and feeling my hair tickling the top of my back is a good sensation! I also have to admit that I would like to have long hair again, but not too much… Then, there is my wedding preparation and I want lots of hair; not necessary a bun but we will see the artist’s inspiration on the D-Day…

 

HAPPY FRIDAY #73

 

Talking about hair, I can do that for hours… For a long time, I wanted to follow the trend or rather the shorthair temptation, but I am a real hair-lazy person and to go to the hairdresser every 15 days is not really my style. Then, you have to brush it every morning… and sometimes I just want to have a bun! I feel like I have always been a follower. I explain, when someone told me “I love your shorthair”, “you look like a doll with long hair”, o even when my mom said she “loved” me with long hair but preferred to see my face, my friends, my loves, and so on… I often had the sensation to follow their advice just to make them happy and finally recently, I looked at my hair experimentations and asked myself what really was my favorite look. Just to say that I think I finally found myself and made peace with my hair! Yeah! I like this long bob hair cut period between Sophie Marceau in the French movie “La Boom” and the model Freja Beha, and I am now looking for the perfect hair color… I promise, I will not be platinum blonde again, but I will probably try something in the same theme…

 

HAPPY FRIDAY #73

 

Hair break. Today is a little “back to school” Happy Friday, but not too much, I will keep wearing my Paloma dungarees to meet the Indian summer with my Ikea straw basket used as school bag… I am trying to save the holiday spirit as much as I can! By the way, I did not remove the Canadian sand I had in my Stan Smith… 

 

HAPPY FRIDAY #73

 

To find the perfect combo, I mixed my dungarees and my summer basket with a fluid trench and a pair of crazy shoes! Now you think I am crazy to ride a bike with 12cm heels… Yes I really did and not only for the picture… You have to practice before but it is very practical and my feet do not hurt at the end of the day!

 

HAPPY FRIDAY #73

 

Today I am wearing an H&M trench you already saw here, a stripped crop top from Asos, Wear Lemonade dungarees, I advise you to choose one size down your usual size, here I am wearing a size S. A lovely pair of shoes from Gordana Dimitrijevic and an Ikea bag!
