Here I am at dinner at Spice Market at the W Midtown Atlanta hotel. The dress I bought at a boutique when I was at Cap Ferret this past August. I love the details with a gold string strap which comes together in the center with pink tassels. The shoes are gold strappy sandals from Zara and the clutch is Clare Vivier.

Known for creating luxurious feminine and romantic looks, Gilles Mendel took on his spring collection on a different route. Down to the south pacific, to be exact, as brought by a plane crash. The designer was inspired by Serge Gainsbourg's "Cargo Cult," a song depicting a man's search from his lost love, brought down by a plane crash perhaps caused by the indigenous people of the pacific islands. The real islander can be seen in green and gold jacquard. Some dresses and blouses were a patchwork of lace and perforation. Overall, the looks were still pure of beautiful J.Mendel femininity, with lots of lace and luxe fabrics- including even a little of that famous Mendel fur.

For Delpozo's second New York debut, Josep Font presented the Madrid-based collection with a strong femininity with true glamour that is sometimes lost in this modern world. Delpozo's second season revival of the historical Spanish brand was inspired from its home and inspired by a portrait of a Gypsy by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. The colors were beautiful pastels to a creamy orange and popping pink, to even a little black. Florals were paired perfectly with gingham or embellished blouses. Voluminous skirts, floral dresses, and intricate embellishments on silk blouses or knits are perfect for those special events. But Font didn't neglect the thought of dinner pants with romantic blouses, or a little daytime dress-up with a short floral skirt, paired with a gingham top, or maxi dresses. Delpozo has proven to be wearable couture.

Light and airy was the name of the game at Nonoo's spring collection for 2014. Plenty of pastel colors filled the room in a multitude of fabrics. A pale blue long blazer with lame arms over silk trousers in the same color started the show. Then bright yellow, florals, and painted abstracts followed. Misha Nonoo's first runway show certainly gave the audience a breath of fresh air.

This summer, I was able to spend my holidays in Cap Ferret, which is on the west coast of France, close to Biarritz. Here I am out for a pre-dinner cocktail in a Club Monaco dress (which has really nice leather trimmed detailing on the pockets), French Sole silver ballerinas, a blush pink Clare Vivier clutch and Ralph Lauren metal rim sunglasses. Below, find photos from Cap Ferret and the bassin. I hope everyone had nice summer holidays, as well!
