 Hope is the thing with feathers
By Emily Dickinson
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Pure raw silk dressing gown from Charvet.

Dressing gowns are such mystical frocks - finding one that will make you look spectacular is the challenge. The raw-silk and classic cut of the Charvet model is sure to astound. The colors and grain of the robes are simply divine. Naturally, an appointment is to be scheduled at the Place Vendôme boutique - if you take shopping in Paris seriously, this is the diamond. 

Simple yet elegant shoes from Jay Butler, and coat from Loewe. 
Sweater from Polo Ralph Lauren, and glasses from Gucci. 
Suit from Berteil, silk scarf from Charvet. 

A more contemporary and sexy way of wearing a suit is to expose some décolleté - this said, it should be garnished. A silk scarf with simple elegant patterns that reminesce on art-deco themes is a subtle yet knowldgable choice. Seen here, Charvet hits that note once again - have a look at the numerous patterns and sold colors proposed directly in their boutique, or online (occasionally) at Mr. Porter, here.

“I had all the characteristics of a human being—flesh, blood, skin, hair—but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that my normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning”

― Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

Ostrich feather. 
When you hear the music, you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket and then make a slip
You steal a car and go to Las Vegas
Ooh, the gigolo pool
Hanging out by the state line, turning holy water into wine
Drink it, drink it down
Yeah, I'm on this bus on a psychedelic trip
I'm reading murder books, tryin' to stay hip
And I'm thinkin' of you, you're out there
So say your prayers
Nikita wears a suit from Celine, a turtle-neck sweater from Eric Bompard, sunglasses from Gucci,  and a belt from Berteil. Marin wears trousers from Berg& Berg.
Now I close my eyes
Yes, I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Love what was once
So alive and new
When it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realize
eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
They got no human grace
Your eyes without a face
Just some human waste
Your eyes without a face
