Cultural Sunday

I love museums - I guess I have never mentioned it before - but I surely do! I believe it is one of the easiest, fastest and cheapest ways to ensure your constant growth and personal development. Not to mention, that it is also a great place to meet strongly intelligent people and make new friends. 

This has been said, I always treat my 'cultural' looks with the same diligence and attention to the details as I usually do for my 'office' or 'leisure' outfits. They all must be TESSful:-) (as you might have guessed).

For the last 'museums-check' in Paris I picked a splendid place dedicated to the French architecture: Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine. If you appreciate a good architectural design as I do, then don't miss this wonderful site with its 8,000 m² of permanent exhibit space! 

Without revealing a content of the museum ( will check it by yourself!), I better reveal to you my 'museum' look: TESSfully simple and cozy, yet elegant and refined! 

Well, wait :-) ...before you actually start questioning... or even making fun of me... this and the following two pics were NOT taken on the floor at the museum, but the last one - was (not on the floor though:). I just wanted to capture this look in all its TESSful beauty to share with you:)

So, TESS of the day: 
Dress, Jacket - BCBGMAXAZRIA
Necklace - BCBGeneration
Bracelet - Banana Republic
Glasses - Max Mara,
Handbag, Key ring - Louis Vuitton,
Bottillons - Jimmy Choo. 

Don't forget to check out some other stories I brought for you from museums:-) 

***So, what do YOU usually WEAR TO MUSEUMS?***

Elegant Elie

Guess who is here... yes, TESS is back:) I know - I know, I've said it once before and then disappeared for months - this time I am back for good. Promise! Simply because I missed you, TESSies, so much, that I couldn't be away any longer. If you still don't believe me, then have a look at this video. I am sharing it with you at the risk of being called unTESSfull (never!), but the drama there is so real that you must watch it to visualize me... all this time... without you:

Now, when I am finally back, you totally deserve to know where on Earth I've been all this time and why I 'procrastinated' that much (did I?)... Fair enough. In two words, I was here working on this, drinking this and shopping this:) Plus, doing some other things that would be too boring to discuss. However, what I can surely admit is that I didn't procrastinate a single minute and have lo-o-ots of TESSful things to share with you!

For a starter, here goes a stunning TESSful collection of wedding and evening dresses by Elie Saab as spotted in the Four Seasons Hotel George V during the Paris Fashion Week. Eight gorgeous dresses from the latest Fall-Winter 2014 Haute Couture collection were displayed in the lobby of the hotel organically framed by 15,000 red Naomi and 9,000 white Avalanche roses. All gowns made of silk tulle and lace were neatly decorated with crystals, sequins and fine beads. The mirrored plexiglas stands reflected the colors and the lights giving a refined touch to the exposition. It was TESSfully spectacular!
