after almost seven years of having the same wallet I finally found one that can get me over my beloved MIU MIU leather wallet. my old one was kind of big and I felt like switching to a smaller version – in fact I did and today I took some time to finally arrange my new wallet. that is such a cleansing thing to do: getting rid off all the unnecessary receipts and shopping cards that I have not used in years. 🙂
the wallet was part of my SPRING shopping haul via zalando.ch and here you can see all the new pretty things that have found their way into my closet 🙂 next week I will hopefully find time to show you some outfits wearing these new things and in general to get ready for spring! are you a pastel lover? I AM!
today is fasnachts tuesday also called kids fasnacht and to be very honest I am super excited that fasnacht is over tomorrow. I live in the city center and therefore I hear the piccolo day and night 🙁 if there were just drummers it would be a totally different story.
so let me get back to my question: cats or hats? the internet is full of funny cute cat pictures and I am sure that you could look at different pictures for months and you would not have been able to see them all 🙂 I am a hat person and I can not get enough hats. my most favorite hat is swiss-made by RISA and I could easily wear it every day.
Elvire Thouvenot-Nitzan made this lovely illustration for the blog and unfortunately I can not link you to her page as she has none but in case you are interested please contact me and I will forward your messages to her or write her a direct email to elvire (at) bluewin.ch for inquiries.
instead of a funny cat I wanna show you another hat outfit wearing my lovely beige C&A hat, besides that I am wearing my lovely skirt from le MOUTON a 5 PATTES – my beloved Vintage FENDI bag – my suede booties from NAVYBOOT – my Vintage BALLY jacket and my H&M gloves and shirt!
I have got something nice to show you – the 4-free nail polishes by KURE BAZAAR Paris. I have so far tried the two beautiful colors BOHEMIAN and KALE – two very strong independent colors – and two different base coats and one top coat. I have discovered KURE BAZAAR last year at the Parfumerie Hyazinth in Basel and was really impressed by the 4-free formula and tried the BOHEMIAN color and the FIRST BASE basecoat. well as I am a STRIPLAC lover this nail polish of course didnt last as long.. in fact it chipped already after the second day eventough I had used a base and top coat.
at the KURE BAZAAR event we were given the DRY FINISH top coat and the CLEAN mate base coat and its really funny that now when I use the CLEAN mate base coat instead of the FIRST BASE the nailpolish lasts longer – I am impressed! so in my case the mate base called CLEAN helps the nail polish last longer. I had the BOHEMIAN for two days and the KALE for three days – still no comparison to my 20 days + with STRIPLAC but it is 4-free and that should really matter!
what does 4-free mean? it means that the company has removed four toxic ingredients and has replaced them with natural ones. so what did they remove exactly? they have removed Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene and Formaldehyde Resin! the KURE BAZAAR formula is up to 85 % of natural originbased on wood pulp, cotton, potatoes, wheat and corn.
so what I absolutely love, besides the fact that the nail polishes are of natural origin, are the colors! I have hardly ever seen so many nice colors of one single brand. the KALE and BOHEMIAN are two very special colors and so far I have not found any similar colors. hmm, maybe for the BOHEMIAN the MAVALA Sienna Red could be a close dupe but just close. what do you think?
big chunky boots – I love it and I am totally aware that this is not everyones cup of tea. I found these on SALE last year and I can not remember where I have found them and there is no label in or outside the shoes. a combination that always works for me is black and red – they go very nicely together and complement eachother.
another thing is wearing too many accessories and this is actually hardly ever gonna happen to me as I barely wear too much jewelry or any jewelry at all. so in fact this is something to work on – wearing a bit more accessories 🙂 but when I am wearing such chunky red boots I feel that it would be too much for an every day outfit.

getting ready for the weekend baby! yes, in fact I am but I also wanna share with you something new. one thing that has completely changed is my opinion about ironing. wow – ever since I had my hands on this new TEFAL steam ironing station I knew that ironing was not what I thought it was. I was using a very old JURA iron and it took forever to iron a shirt – therefore I hardly ever ironed – only when I really really had to. BUT now I got this TEFAL steam iron that heats up in 2 minutes and I am super happy – thank you TEFAL for changing my life!! the station is super easy to use as it has 3 different options: jeans – normal – delicate. it has an auto clean iron and the anticalk function but the coolest thing is that it is an ECO model meaning that I use 25% less energy than before. more info about the station here.
can you guess what I will be wearing tonight? I found this lovely sexy black negligee by maddison at MANOR and it is the perfect thing to wear under a dress that has no space for a padded bra and it is amazingly comfortable to wear and everything stays put. actually it is a nightgown but I am known to use things a bit differently 🙂 I am going to wear it under the beautiful ACNE dress that I ironed in 3 minutes this morning. happy weekend! xx
thank you all for being here! I hope you can spend a nice holiday and enjoy the last days of this year. I started an amazing christmas eve day in lucerne and had a nice quiet dinner at home with friends. today it’s all about chilling – that’s why I am also showing you this comfy wool look!

when I saw Cristians jeans hanging like this on the hook of his closet I had to get my camera and capture it. I think if one wanted to drape jeans like this it would take hours and he just did it randomly and not on purpose 🙂
this made me wear my boyfriend jeans today and I will soon show you the photos of todays look.
my ZALANDO parcel has arrived on saturday morning and it brought me this awesome burgundy TOPSHOP hat. hats are my favorite piece of accessories at this very moment and I can not wait to wear this hat more often. today I paired the hat with my new pastel wooljacket that I have found at the fleamarket last saturday. I washed it with the woolprogram of my machine and it turned out fresh and clean. mmhhmm, I love the smell of fresh laundry.

I hope you have had a good half of the week so far. I will test some cool things for the blog and I promise to upload many nice things to my blog.
today I have received this awesome present by @ellijewelry and I can not wait to show you what it is. all I will say now is that it is very tiny and rather salty than sweet. 🙂 soon more on the BLOG. stay tuned. xx
I have already showed you this outfit before but not this photo and I felt I wanna share it with you guys here too. you might wonder why I have such a big smile in my face, hmm, well, it is because I am so happy about my new MIU MIU sunglasses. they are perfect for the autumn sun. I love the shape and color.

I can not help it but I love to wear navy – so I was not surprised to see that two of my items where navy. you can never go wrong with wearing jeans these navy boots and the rest doesnt event matter anymore as you are already dressed 🙂 the same with the downjacket by LIU JO – this piece will be so precious in winter. because here in switzerland it can get really really cold. I am going to wear this jacket now in fall and later on I will layer it underneath my navy wool coat by ESPRIT (something new that I will show you soon)
I arrived at the zalando summerhouse location today – wow! what a beautiful castle! I am looking forward to a wonderful weekend and meeting lots of nice people. we had such a cool ride – an old omnibus and had a lovely BBQ in the garden! more photos to come!
