I found some awesome pieces from the new fall/winter collection at C&A in Basel, Switzerland and some of the pieces are indeed available via the onlineshop, these are the pieces that you can see above.
I found another denim shirt with embelishment that is not in the online shop (yet) – lets see maybe I can add it to the list later. anyways, I will soon upload outfit inspirations including these new fall pieces. if the weather is decent I can shoot this weekend. stay tuned. X
I did something that I rarely ever do. I am wearing top and bottom the same brand and it is not H&M, hahahaha. : ) nooo, it is TARA JARMON. a big up for this amazing french designer.
more about TARA JARMON here >>
a rather simple but AHA outfit. one color is dominating and there is lots of sparkle and shine from the top and pants. therefore I didnt feel like adding any heavy golden or silver jewelry and only chose two matching accessories: the white shoes by BATA and the cute clock bag and black sunglasses by C&A. I absolutely love the shoes with this outfit for me this is a match made in heaven as I first did not really know with what I should wear these super high white heels.
I first fell in love with the silver top and actually wanted to pair it with the red skirt that unfortunately had a broken zipper but then in the end I found the matching pants and taataaaaa this is MY FASHION VESTIS LOOK. I was asked to join a blogger contest where we can win a 3000 CHF shopping voucher and a photoshooting. as soon as I will have the link where you can vote I will put it HERE >> LINK <<
hahaha as you can see from the phot below. I really dont know and I also dont really care : )
It is a top and a dress, lets agree on that. I have found this piece on SALE at h&m for 20 CHF and I wanna thank Freya very much for the birthday voucher that I used for this purchase – thank you so much for coming to my party!
from the front it looks like a dress and from the side it looks like a top.
today is the first day of our trip to SICILY and of course I have also brought this top/dress to wear during the vacation – I try to take some really nice sicilian photos in castellammare del golfo. until then stay tuned for something nice tomorrow. X
this is one of my favorite pieces from SCOPE 2015 I can look at it forever and always see something new. the coolest things about works like this is that you can really zoom into the painting and see even more things.the title fits: NEW SCENERY IN DREAM. yes I can see the new scenery in my pinkish dream.

about the artist and project
1950 Born in Seoul
Graduated from Oriental Painting of Faculty of Art, Chugae Art College
Graducated from Graduate School of Education, Dongguk University
HOW IS IT DONE? “his works were created by reapplying white color on top of ground color applied by using acrylic water color and drawing the outline of mountain using air gun filled with water and regular brush while erasing the water color on surface to reveal the ground”
unfortunately it was very hard to find anything about the artist because not even on the KEUMSAN gallery website there is a link or any additional info about his artwork. I have found that quiet common among asian galleries and artist. AND I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS, why?? It should be the job of the gallery to present the artist with all the information regarding him and his works.
I am back from my tiny press trip to PARIS and I have a lot to share with you. these two days were packed with lots of nice things. thank you C&A for inviting me – it was a blast and I met so many interesting fashion people. this morning I made a tiny video where I was rambling about what I have been doing in PARIS – it will be up via YOUTUBE and can be seen here on my blog via the SOCIAL MEDIA category.
3 hour train ride from BASEL to PARIS with the TGV – arrived at GARE DE LYON and took a cab to the HOTEL MAMA SHELTER. there I found my MY WEBSPOT pocket WI-FI at the reception and it was super easy to get it started, I just had to press ON and enter the code that was on the back of the pocket WI-FI. ZACK! I was connected to the INTERNET WORLD. thank you so much for letting me use your services while I was in PARIS.
then I took the metro and went to the stop ALÉSIA where the SONIA RYKIEL outlet shop was and indeed I found something nice there! I will go a bit more into detail about the fashion part in another blogpost. now I wanna continue with the schedule, so after the shopping I met up with all the other bloggers and journalistes from all around europe and we drove with shuttle buses from the hotel to the LE PERCHOIR bar.
such a pitty that it was raining that very evening when we were at the LE PERCHOIR bar as the rooftop bar is just absolutely stunning with a view all over PARIS.
after the drinks at the bar we drove back to the HOTEL where we all had a dinner together. well, I dont really wanna talk about the dinner as there wouldnt be much nice to say and I guess by saying that I have just told you everything you need to know. 🙂 after dinner everyone was tired and went to bed. I went for some drinks and returned at about 1:30 am.
at 10 AM we were all ready and waited for the buses to bring us to the C&A showroom. there we were welcomed with tea, coffee and croissants.
and the decoration of the showroom was very very nice. the place is actually a gallery and therefore there was lots of light and white walls and floors.
I will show you a bit about the location. I quickly spoke to the DJane and I really liked her performance. the whole location was filled with bloggers and journalistes, editors, designers and C&A staff. I took many photos of the collection and will show you soon.
alright, now I will start editing the video for YOUTUBE and will start selecting the photos for the FASHION post. I hope you liked the photos that I took and stay tuned for more. X
ouff.. I finally packed my bags for my mini trip to PARIS – starting today in the morning! I will travel with the TGV and since I live in Basel it only takes around 3 hours!
packing my bags was a hassle – like always… I just find it very hard to know what I want to be wearing another day – fashion is something spontaneous for me and thats why I also tend to over pack.. this time I just took three different outfits and a couple of shoes for day and night. so I am very proud already about that 🙂 C&A invited me for a bloggers presstrip and I will keep you up to date about all the nice things I see. stay tuned via my SOCIAL MEDIA and maybe I will find time to upload an article via the blog under the EVENTS category.

spring has begun and I started to change my wardrobe and I brought the nice spring coats from the back to the front. today I wanna show you a very nice simple two tone look with beige and pink!
I love the COSMPOPARIS heels and I am more than happy to have found them ON SALE last year! the pink coat is kind of famous as it has made its way to some international blogs – have a look here <<or here <<or here <<

I love mix and matching one or two colors and I think that this is a very nice way to create stylish looks with little effort. I am more than happy about springs arrival and the only thing I have to get used to is the lost hour in the morning 🙂
HAPPY SUNDAY everyone – lots of love and try to relax and maybe start reading your new book or clean up your closet 🙂 X
yay – the sun is out we already passed the month of January so what I am trying to say is we are almost done with winter. or at least thats what I extremly wish for. at the H&M Clarashopping I have found this lovely striped dress for 29.90 CHF and as I was returning several bags of old clothes I got a 5 CHF discount voucher that I have used for the dress – so even a bigger bargain!
the color green mixed with blue and white is a cry for summer – not kidding this reminds me so much of the clear water of the ocean. currently I have seen many cool things in the color blue and green. last week at the Estée Lauder press event I was given a fantastic blue eyeliner pencil in the color COBALT BLUE and it is a dream – in fact I am wearing it today on my upper lash line. another color that drew my attention is the KURE BAZAAR nailpolish in KALE – a wonderful dark subtle green! unfortunately the new green is not on the chart yet. more about these nailpolishes soon on the blog.
aaw, I finally took the photos of my new leather jacket that I have found on SALE at the EDWIN outlet in Weil am Rhein, Germany. 90 Euro instead of 450 Euro – another bargain! EDWIN is a japanese brand from tokyo and the jacket is from the MEN section – hahahahaha, yeah, I know, this happens a lot to me – I often end up in the MEN department and I always find something nice – I would be for a neutral department – women – men and both <3 today I am also wearing a shirt and turtle neck from the men department. the shop next door to EDWIN is the CARHARTT outlet and there I have found another super bargain – a nice beige wool scarf for 10 Euros.

another outfit on the blog, this time I am layering my green fluffy funny COMME DES GARCONS jacket by JUNYA WATANABE with the super warm down jacket by C&A (fair down production – read more here >>) this look is a very casual one with a big mix of high and low end clothes. something I love to do is mixing styles and different brands – how boring would it look to wear a head to toe GUCCI outfit – no thanks!

yay – happy weekend – every day so many bad sad horrible things happen – and I m very sorry for all the lost lives. these moments I especially love to share something nice with you. I focus on small things and things that make the tiny difference like sending lovely letters to friends or having a nice meal with a friend. I hope you will have a wonderful weekend!
today’s fashion pick is my new colorful sequin skirt that rocks every outfit. I found it on SALE – half price so it was perfect for my January budget 😉

a rather casual and comfy outfit that I am showing you today. but I am very happy with my newest purchase of jeans. in fact they are my new favorite jeans. I found out that the perfect length for me is to buy short sizes. luckily C&A runs short (and long) sizes and the 36 short fits me perfectly. another favorite of mine is the NINO BOLLAG jacket – a great piece to slack over almost every outfit. I guess thats why it is a favorite. when I think about my favorite clothing items I see that many of them can be worn in various ways with lots of different other things. what is your favorite piece? let me know. xx

that is something rather unusual for me. I hardly ever wear a complete black outfit. and it is funny that even when I try to wear a complete black outfit I still find one or two things that are not black – today it is my light grey tights.
