how to create a simple look for a night out?
if you wanna look classy then I would decide on one color or one pattern and match the shoes handbag, jewelry and makeup. in my case I chose the JACQUARD pattern dress and therefore chose rather simple accessories and a very light and subtle makeup.
in the photo above I paired the dress from heine.ch with my own stuff such as the pumps by LAUTRE CHOSE, the bag by DKNY, the earrings by PIECES and the makeUp by SHISEIDO. but in case you feel like shopping an outfit entirely from heine than you will like my suggestions below:
what is JACQUARD?
…the jacquard process and the necessary loom attachment are named after their inventor, Joseph Marie Jacquard (1752–1834). this mechanism is probably one of the most important weaving inventions as jacquard shedding made possible the automatic production of unlimited varieties of pattern weaving. the term “jacquard” is not specific or limited to any particular loom, but rather refers to the added control mechanism that automates the patterning. the process can also be used for patterned knitwear and machine-knitted textiles, such as jerseys… wikipedia
last weekend I was in KARLSRUHE for the #kbreise15 and it was a blast. I met lots of nice bloggers and saw many nice things. I already put all my impressions in one post and soon there will be part two of the days in BASEL, where I actually wanted to blog about the new awesome MARLENE DUMAS exhibition but due to photoright issues I will focus on the guy with the special story about a remote island that might not even exist and spices that bring you around the world. stay tuned for that. until then I wanna show you my new outfit inspiration, what do you think of the combination of red and brown? I love it!
lips MAC RED
and now you might wonder why I am so happy, for sure not about the weather! no, I am happy because I got all my tickets and invitation ready for next week and at the moment I am deciding what to wear. so many options I bet you know what I mean. I have stuff! and some things are so old, like this red GUESS dress that I am wearing today. I bought it in the US in 2003! some things are meant to last! : )
and with a smile on my lips and a big grin I say thank you for reading and in case you have not registered for your free ticket for BASEL NACHT at VOLTA11 then do that now:
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! X
HAPPY BIRTHDAY today is MAY FIRST and finally I can show you what we, Michael and I, have been working on the last months. I wanted to make my blog more structured and easier for you to find what you like. hence the title: new look! for that occasion I pulled out my fancy spring dress and celebrated the first day of my NEW BLOG!
dress H&M garden collection
umbrella present (from Agata)
fluffy cake present (from Dad and Monika)
in german there is this saying ALLES NEU MACHT DER MAI and that means more or less like MAY GIVES BIRTH TO THE FRUITS OF APRIL’S WET LABOUR and therefore I am more than happy to be able to share with you my new blog. unfortunately the weather outside still looks a lot more like april than may but lets hope for the best and lets welcome SPRING!
I got a new cashmere top and a new hair color – yay two new things that I am very happy about. I have already told you several things about my lovely hairdresser Stefanie Winter, she hasher salon just behind Aeschenplatz and I really love the ombre dipdye result – like this I dont have to color my roots every two weeks. yes, you heard correctly, my hair is grwoing super fast!
again I am wearing a two color look and I feel that this is such an easy way to create a gorgeous outfit. black and mud I find this such an elegant combo!
and here you can see my lovely hair color from the back – I am totally in love with the gradient of the three colors the dark brown, caramel and copper.
and since it is monday I wanna share with you my biggest smile of the day! HAPPY MONDAY to all of my lovely readers!
so 2014 is coming to an end and I wanna thank you for an awesome year with isawsomethingnice.ch <3 today I am going sledding with friends and will hopefully have an awesome time on the slopes. I got up super early to enjoy the day to the fullest. keep up to date with me via my FB page where I will post photos of us snow bunnies. as soon as I will be back at home I will change and take photos of my NYE outfit.
this is one possible outfit. as I will have a lovely dinner at home I can wear something less winter-ish – at least for the dinner. in my city there is always a firework on the river and I might go and check that out – so for sure there I will consider a warmer outfit. HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends! xx
