as I already mentioned via Facebook and Instagram I will show you how I wear my nudes! I got a nude pair of chunky platform sandals – a pair of sleek slingback stilettos and a pair of sandals with a chunky heel.
a very simple mix of pastels and floral prints with a light makeup using pink lipstick and creamy shiny eyeshadow. an outfit for every day to work or a nice weekend outfit – very subtle and light!
this is a more elegant way to dress oneself – I love to mix different brown and I think it always looks good with nude shoes! with this lovely silk blouse the brown red pants look very chic and elegant!
#sandals with a block heel
this is my city look and due to its chunky heel these shoes are very nice for a city trip as they are comfy to walk in. also the outfit is a very simple one as you just have to wear that striped summer dress put on your sunglasses, grab your purse and you are ready!
here I have found some really nice nude shoes – have a look!
one of my favorite books regarding fashion and style is the one above in the photo. and it shows many nice key pieces for the perfect style. this very morning I was browsing thru this book and it made me think about these pieces: my beloved VALENTINO sandals – the lovely rose lipstick by ESTÉE LAUDER – the sweet scent LOVESTORY by CHLOÉ and golden hoops.
now I wanna answer some fashion questions:
#1 what are key pieces?
these are clothes that can be worn in many different ways and always remain timeless. a good navy or black blazer – a nice white blouse – a skinny jeans – black or brown chelsea boots – a beige trench coat – white sneakers – black flats etc.
#2 are there any no-go in fashion?
hmm, thats a tough question as for me almost everything goes and hardly anything is impossible. personally I dont like to mix black and brown and navy and black – but thats just me 🙂 but on the other hand I love to mix and match with colors and patterns. back in the days it was also not so cool to mix red and pink but thats also something that works perfectly for me. another thing I wanna share is that when I am wearing a short skirt I am always wearing a rather simple top with it and when I wear a nice cleavage shirt I try not to wear it with shorts but with a nice pants instead.
#3 whats my go-to look for a business day?
atm this would be a pencil skirt with a cashmere sweater, ankle boots and an oversized coat. in case you need inspiration check my outfits from 2011 2012 2013 and 2014 or check my polyvore page.
winter socks and funky shoes – these are my two newest things. I absolutely love to wear thick comfy wool socks in winter and I was really happy to have found these at MANOR in basel but they are actually made by ESPRIT. did you know that you can get an ESPRIT friends card and collect points when shopping. I just got my overview and got a voucher for 25.90 CHF. will soon be spending this amount or more (like always) at the SALE at ESPRIT basel. the shoes I have found at BATA on SALE yay! what an amazing color – RED – I am totally going for this particular red. such an easy way to wear a jeans – t-shirt – blazer look in a different way because they are not sneakers but also not ballerinas. although I totally agree that they look rather sporty than elegant. I am already looking forward to wear both of the pieces in different outfits for the blog. stay tuned. xx
CHRISTMAS is around the corner! not my favorite time of the year but something I have learned to deal with as after every winter there comes spring and thats my biggest hope and wish. let the sun shine, the flowers bloom and the skirts be short! so back to my wishlist for christmas. I have found many nice things that I wanna show you.

hello stan, you are now on my feet and I hope you like it! ha, I wanted a pair of white sneakers forever and finally I bought myself some at the pomp it up store in Basel. the Adidas Stan Smith sneakers are available in green and blue and as I hardly wear green I aimed for the blue ones. ever since I got these I was wearing them with style. stay tuned to see my sneaker outfits. xx
my princess gene made me have these gorgeous MIU MIU ballerinas! they work with everything – from a simple black dress to a casual jeans t-shirt blazer look. especially on a monday morning like today I can need some bling bling to rock my day!
Miuccia is the master of bling bling shoes – MIU MIU has so many different variations from sneakers, slippers and heels to ballerinas.
an italian interpretation of wearing a very elegant piece of the fall/winter collection in Venice in August 2014. the silver dress is from the new ESPRIT collection and its just absolutely wonderful to wear. once u zip up the back of the dress you just feel ready – ready to have a good time! above you can see some more of the new collection and I am sure that I will find many other gorgeous pieces to wear. ready for fall/winter!

Do you know COSMOPARIS? if not take a moment and stroll thru their onlineshop – I am telling you it is really worth it and I promise that you will find something nice even if you dont need anything at all 🙂
I will wear them with my new WEILL coat where I am still looking for a photo.. It is a beige white coat with a lovely pattern. stay tuned I will show it to you soon! I found it at the boutique BAUM in Basel and it was on SALE 189 CHF instead of 789 CHF – thanks mom for buying it for me!
the shoes go perfectly with a pencilskirt, skinny jeans, jumpsuit, a black dress – basically with everything! they are quiet high but because of their block heels the shoes are very comfy to walk in. I will sure bring these babies and take them for a walk at the fashionweek, either in London or Paris, we will see! stay tuned for my first outfits wearing these gorgeous shoes!
I wanna show you something NEW to me and something NICE.
the brand VIONIC – have you heard about it?
I was so lucky to choose one of their sandals and really liked the SELENA model with the animal print. The advantage of these sandals is the FMT technology for a natural relief! this orthotic technology helps reduce over-pronation, which can relieve associated common pains. And I have to admit that these are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn! I am looking forward to many sunny days to walk in my SELENA sandals!

so much style at one place! thanks for letting me take this awesome photo of you! as I didnt really find anything related to Boyz in the Wood other than a Youtube channel (I really hope thats you guys 😉 I linked it in the caption. when I googled them in relation to artbasel I only found boys in the wood – with S and not Z! well, if its not the correct youtube chanel then please let me know and I will change it. they told me they are a boyband called Boyz in the Wood and they all come from many different parts of the world. it was very nice to meet you!
BLACK AND WHITE or WHITE AND BLACK
aaww.. I can not get enough of black and white these days. I am absolutely fascinated how simple it can be to create stunning black and white looks. One of the main points to focus are shoes, they can highlight your outfit and give it the final touch.
Some days ago I have showed you my WHITE and BLACK look wearing my new white esprit top and skirt, the black C&A sunglasses, the white C&A clutch and the RAVEL shoes. There I only had the shoes and sunglasses with black and the rest of the outfit was white. So ofcourse you can also create a BLACK and WHITE look with the SENSO shoes by wearing a black top and skirt or pants and the white shoes to pop up the outfit.
all of these shoes I have found via zalando.ch
