The Balenciaga IT jumper dress

I had to try this one on, it's one of the iconic piece of this season's Balenciaga collection. But the knit wasn't as soft and as comfy as i expected it to be so i passed on this one even if i do like it a lot.

Merry x'mas everyone !!!

And here are a few pics of my Christmas meal.

Snowman made of quail and chicken eggs with salmon scarves.

Foie Gras on pain d'épice toasts & Foie gras macaroons.

Christmas spoons with salmon, asparagus and tiny tomatoes.

A cool week in London

I just love London, this city is so cool, full of great ideas. Most of the museums are free, which is very good for the mind's creativity, it's like feeding the brain with all you can eat free art. I didn't have time to do all the museums since i was there for a short course but i did see the Modern Tate Gallery and saw some great works there. Here are some of my favorite.

The walk by the Thames River was very nice too, love the bridges & brick buildings.
