ONE DRESS - MANY WAYS TO WALK IT

ONE DRESS – MANY WAYS TO WALK IT

one dress - many ways to walk it

I am so in love with this new dress that I have found in one of my favorite shops in Basel: Le Mouton a 5 Pates. A super simple grey SILVIAN HEACH dress to wear in many different ways. Today I wanna show you that you can wear the same dress and only change the shoes. A very simple way to make your dresses more versatile.
one dress – many ways to walk it #1
lets start with the comfiest and easiest way to walk: Sneakers. A pair of black sneakers should be key to every wardrobe. A very easy way to dress down a nice dress.

Metallic shoes were quiet a big trend. And I found my silver shoes in C&A on SALE for 19 CHF. An amazing bargain. Not only great to dress up your look in a comfy way but also perfect to jazz up a simple jeans and sweatshirt look.

And now a very easy way to upgrade your dress by wearing black heels. In my opinion every lady should have a pair of black heels. No matter if the heel height is only 2 cm.

Simple black flats, also something that we all should own. Nothing works better to make a chic outfit look more casual. I found these babes at ALDO in Marseille.

Boots are a great way to wear a dress in winter. I found these wedge boots at the Zalando Lounge Sale. They are very comfy to walk in due to the wedge heel. Black boots are perfect becasue they are working with so many different colors and looks. I am not so sure anymore whether I like these kind of boots with jeans. It somehow reminds me of the late 90s, early 2000, when this boot over skinny jean was a big success. Maybe with a pair of over the knee boots, who knows.

I wanna thank Miguel for taking the photos of me, it was quiet an adventure. We found this little platform on the water (Rhein) that was perfect to take the photos. I was able to get there with almost all the shoes, except for the wedge boots that you can see in the photo above.
Here is a photo that shows how hard it was to get to that tiny platform. I was prepared to fall in the super cold water but luckily didn’t. 🙂 Have a lovely day. X

PRESENTS FOR HIM

presents for him
1

KIEHLS ultimate brushless shave cream
2 NIKE Kaishi Casual Sneakers
3 TWEEZERMAN shaving brush
4 BARNEYS New York Jacquard Bow Tie
5 NESPRESSO travel mug

I found some lovely present ideas for your beloved friends, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, uncles and husbands and all the other male people you want to share a present with ; ) nice shaving tools and creams is something almost all the men can need at least once a year, I am saying this because lately I see a lot of unshaved men and it is super trendy to have a beard, but also these guys will eventually shave. did you already shop all your presents? I am almost done as I am leaving on christmas holidays next monday afternoon.

my phone is the BEST – not kidding!

my phone is the BEST – not kidding 🙂
a couple of months ago I ditched my iphone and started using this awesome new SONY smartphone – more info about it here << and ever since I have started to use the new phone to capture event pictures I was able to leave my big heavy CANON EOS camera at home. this morning I was playing with the camera and took these lovely photos.

so let me quickly tell you the PRO’s of this new phone: 1. the battery lasts for almost 2 DAYS – thats a big or lets say HUGE bonus compared to my iphone. 2. waterproof – the case is waterproof and can be taken for a swim – before doing that read the instructions that come with the phone. 3. I can upload all my things to my phone _ I have almost toal freedom about my files and music – I can mirror my desktop computer on my phone and work from the go! 4. the brain of the phone is super quick and lets me work in a neat speed. 5. the camera – it has 20.7 MP camera and the option to record 4K movies – there is a time lapse option and many other fancy adjustments for the camera. 6. the color range of the phones – I am so happy with my TIFFANY & CO green phone!

my phone is the BEST - not kidding!

the only CON that I could name is that I had to redownload all the apps and some of them didnt have an android version so I had to search for a dupe. other than that I am very pleased with my new phone!

what phone are you using? do you like the iphone 6? let me know. X

MAKE UP SESSION TWO with lovely Diana

we did it again – hahahaha, yes we again had fun with makeUp and this time I used the new SHISEIDO products among many other products. as a base I used the LANCOME CUSHION MIRACLE my newest favorite foundation and the ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR BRUSH ON GLOW. then I used the CHANEL 85 SILLAGE eyeshadow all over the lid. afterwards I applied the new SHISEIDO SHIMMERING CREAM EYE COLOR in the outer corner of the eye all away along the crease of the eyelid. then I used another creamy eyeshadow by M.A.C called DANGEROUS CUVÉE paint pot and also smudged it in the outer V of the eye and all the way up to the crease. unfortunately I couldnt find a picture of the dark grey ESSENCE eyeliner I have used to line the lashline. as Diana was wearing glasses that evening I decided to define her eyes a bit more by using the new ELECTRIC COBALT by ESTÉE LAUDER on the lower lash line but only from the outer corner to the middle. to bring in some more color I used the SHISEIDO VEILED ROUGE in the shade RD 506 – a beautiful warm rosy pink. another new product that I have used, but also couldnt find a photo, was the new SHISEIDO PERFECTING STICK concealer. that’s it – it was very easy and I am sure you can do something nice too!

MAKE UP SESSION ONE with lovely Diana

last weekend I had the pleasure to use some of my new makeup products on Diana. we ended up using the new SISLEY phyto 4 ombres and we both really like the colors and luckily we also both like the result.

so what was I doing? I was using the lighter grey color all over the lid (but not all the way up to the brow) then I used the darker grey and i drew a V shape on the outer corner of the eye. because I have already done Dianas foundation and concealing I wanted to be prepared for any fall out from the eyeshadow and thats why I used lots of loose transparent powder under her eyes – in case of fall out you just brush the powder away with a fan brush and there will be no smudges or darker spots below the eyes. so we have the light grey almost all over the lid and the V in the outer corner in the darker grey – the next step is blending the V with a nice fluffy crease brush. I took the blue color and blended it all over the lid. as a last step I used the light grey color and smudged it very lightly along the water line. VOILA that is the complete eye look with the new SISLEY phyto 4 ombres in 2 mystery!

this is the complete look and in case you wanna find the exact same products you can click >> here and have a look at my POLYVORE page, all the products are listed. enjoy. X
