Yesterday my former teacher Michelle T. Sterling founder and training director of the very prestigious Sterling Style Academy where I was trained to be an image consultant and personal shopper, gave me an excellent idea. She told me I should share a post about the famous and always appraised "Mariniére", that lovely white and navy blue stripped shirt Miss Coco Chanel made famous in the 1920's (it was actually in 1917 that she first introduced it in her shop in Dauville) after she saw some sailors wearing it while on a trip to Deauville, France. This was Coco Chanel's first experience with the ocean. 

Last year when I still didn't have a blog and only worked with Facebook I did a piece or may I say various pieces (I was obsessed and still am) about this wonderful and versatile summer shirt. Michelle told me she loved it and that I should share it again. I thought to myself: What a great idea!!! But... why not make something new this time? I know it's a little bit more work but it's worth it, a new year requires new ideas.

Anyhow, this is how it's gonna go. Right now I'm sharing with you some outfit ideas on how to wear "La Marienére" a la classic, romantic and relaxed.  Later on or tomorrow, I don't know exactly, depends on how much time I have to do this because I have a personal shopping appointment this afternoon, I'll be posting outfit ideas on how to wear it a la elegant, dramatic and sportive. Then when I'm finished with this I'll be sharing my own MARINIERE LOOK BOOK, I have like three different ones in my closet so I think it should be fun to make some outfits with them and take some pictures to share with you. 

Too much information? Alright don't fuss about it, right now enjoy this lovely ideas I have for you. If you like anything you see you can find every single piece at Easy right? hahaha

Have some fun coming up with your own ideas and if you'd like to share some images with us you can send them to and I'll gladly share them with everyone. Don't be afraid, be bold!!!
