two months ago I ordered a lot of awesome things via zalando lounge. have you ever heard about that service? you need a login for zalando lounge and once you have your login you can see all the special offers they have. its worth to check every day as there might be new specials and deals. the day I have checked there were awesome black wedge boots with black leather fringes. something that I was looking for for quiet some time and of course I had to have them. FEDERICA BASSI boots for 159.00 instead of 595.00 CHF – thats a bargain! another piece that I fell in love with was the black and white silk dress by BOLZONI&WALSH for 135.00 instead of 675.00 CHF – another bargain, and two pieces that go very well together.
8 pieces and I saved so much money, I dont know about you but I dont think I have ever made such a bargain before. I was very happy with my selected pieces and could not wait for the parcel to arrive. and now comes the downside: its not the regular zalando service where you have your order/parcel within the same week that you have ordered, no, its not. there is an overview of your oder on the website and it will tell you that it fist needs to wait to collect all the different goods from the different warehouses they have in different countries.. I ordered around mid November and it said that my parcel will arrive between 3.12. or 19.12. so I had to prepare myself for waiting and guess what I was lucky and it arrived before November, 29. and therefore I was able to wear my new black and white silk dress with the black fringe wedge boots for the SAMSON et DALILA opera concertant, YAY!
it is september and fall is around the corner. these days are the last days to wear skirts and t-shirts and I wanna embrace that with todays outfit inspiration post. its the time to wear your favorite dresses and skirts for the last time this year and today I am showing you my favorite orange skirt by VALENTINO with my rather new silver TARA JARMON top. todays motto: CHIC FOR FALL !

the best thing about fall is that I can enjoy a hot bath tub again, I love to take baths and soak in the tub for almost an hour : ) so yesterday I repurchased my beloved DRESDNER ESSENZ bath scents, they are amazing, for only 1.50 CHF you have a lovely smelling either relaxing or stimulating bath scents, with bubbles or without. I am not sponsored by them : ) I just really love their products. I will soon get more into details about their bath scents.
mix and match, is my favorite thing to do, and I am sure you can remember this orange skirts from previous outfits before. and thats what fashion is all about for me, it should be versatile. I love to wear my clothes in different ways and love how things look more casual or more elegant. see the different outfits at the very end. HAPPY TUESDAY and enjoy wearing your skirts and tops. X
TOP AND SKIRT – different ways to wear them
september has come and it is somehow the the time to say good bye to summer and welcome fall. lets hope for a beautiful sunny fall with little rain and grey days. todays outfit reminds me very much of my grandma as I am wearing her coat, she passed away this January and I learned so many things in regards to crafting and sewing from her. <3
I love playing with different shades of beige and blue and wanted to share with you my new cut off jeans. these are very very old jeans, I think these were the first edition of the squin jeans by H&M : ) one could almost call them vintage. so my problem is that often the jeans are too long for my legs and I end up tucking them in. so instead of tucking in I decided to cut off. zack!
this is a perfect sunday outfit – very comfy and casual. I am absolutely a jeans person and will always grab a pair for a casual look. another thing that I think works very nicely is mixing beige and blue, and wearing different shades of the two colors. now in fall it is the season to wear your sandals and peeptoes for the last time with jeans instead of dresses before it will be too cold… awww, I dont wanna think about winter. it is my least favorite season, I dont like being in the house all the time and the only good thing about winter is the layering. hahahaha, yes, I love layering looks, it keeps me warm and I get to wear more of my favorite pieces at once.
Happy Sunday – lots of love. X
finally I can show you my new coat that can be worn as a dress too, as the temperatures dropped a bit and I was feeling a lot more in the mood to shoot these photos. : ) I got this beautiful trench coat from MINT & BERRY and it is now on SALE for 55 instead of 75 CHF.
I paired the coat with some really comfy heels that I bought several years ago and have so far never let me down. for sure I will try to wear this coat as a dress in fall or winter or incase I have a nice outdoor event. NOTE the color is described as nude but in fact it is more apricot or rose. I dont mind that because I think it makes it a lot more special compared to all the other nude or beige trench coats.

here you can see me wearing the coat as a trench coat with my bright aztec print dress and flat shoes, this makes the whole outfit a lot more casual but still chic. I am ready for fall but not a rainy grey fall nooo, a rather sunny one. do you have your fall winter collection together? soon I will show you my personal fall/ winter favorites. I am waiting for the parcels to arrive… stay tuned.
a trenchcoat is a good key piece for your wardrobe. it can be worn with dresses or pants, casual or chic there are many ways to wear it. this is a perfect in between season coat, especially here in Basel, Switzerland.

I got a pair of new jeans – yay and they fit perfectly. people you know that I dislike shopping for pants and jeans but sometimes I am very lucky, like in that very case with my new pair of LEVI’S 711 skinny jeans that found their way into my closet.
hands down, these are my most favorite skinny jeans, they are very comfy and light to wear and what I love most about them is the washing, so in love with this shade. FALLEN ROCKS is the name of this wash and it goes with everything, black, blue, different colors and brown.
“our signature LOT 700 fits are the ultimate look. amazing jeans, designed to flatter, hold and lift-all day, everyday. mid rise and slim through hip and thigh.”
jup, I dunno what else to add, this is it. perfect jeans. the only thing to complain about today is the weather but lets hope for better days next week. HAPPY SUNDAY!
this is a real up and down mix aka old and new mix as I am wearing a vintage VALENTINO miss V silk blouse that I have found at the fleamarket, the new LEVI’S jeans, the LANVIN blazer for the H&M collection and my new white leather lasercut pumps from BATA that I have found on SALE. lots of older things mixed with new things. so again, it doesnt matter how much you spend on your outfit, its the way you wear it, your attitude that will make it look even better. I have literally spent 20 CHF for the vintage silk blouse 🙂 what a bargain. keep your eyes open!

such a nice casual every day look – I am def a denim person, my go to outfits always include a pair of skinny jeans!

the ART Basel week is over and I had such a good time. once again my dear friends from the netherlands were here and this year Justin showed a german artist
SEBASTIAN WEGGLER at his TEN HAAF PROJECTS gallery space inside VOLTA11.
my schedule was tight especially the first three days were very intense, lots of ART lots of DESIGN and lots of PARTYING.
ART WEEK 2015
here you can find all my posts from twitter, facebook and instagram.
monday I started with VOLTA11 and ART UNLIMITED and enjoyed myself at the LISTE OPENING PARTY at VOLKSHAUS. tuesday I had breakfast at the Rolls Royce art space inside ELISABETHEN KIRCHE with Isaac Julien and his so very cool video installations from iceland – read more about the project here. and later on I went to see DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and also saw the AUDEMARS PIGUET fireflies installation by ROBIN MEIER – I also blogged about that project – more here. in the evening we had an awesome party on DAS SCHIFF by DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and PERROTIN where we all met TAKESHI MURAKAMI and took funny photos with his staff. wednesday I started my day with DAVIDOFF and went to ART BASEL and SCOPE. later on we had a super nice time at VITRA – we were so lucky that it did not rain that day. thursday I had time to see ART BASEL again but only for a short time as I had to go home and see whether the delivery guy had brought my beautiful dresses by IOANA CIAOLACU for thursday and friday night. thursday night was BASEL NACHT where I was one of the hosts by VOLTA11 and I planned to wear the gorgeous red printed silk dress that had not arrived until fifteen minutes before the start of BASEL NACHT 🙂 but it was absolutely worth to wait for it. friday I had time to see ART BASEL and DESIGN MIAMI again and then spent a wonderful evening at Fondation Beyeler. afterwards we all met at CAMPARI CLUB at KUNSTHALLE.
saturday I had time to see LISTE ART UNLIMITED, DESIGN MIAMI and THE SOLO PROJECT and then went back to VOLTA. sunday I went to SCOPE where I have found something really nice. anyway, I will soon upload all the photos I took during the week and I will also tell you about the guy with the spices at Fondation Beyeler park. stay tuned for more and now I wanna show you some of my outfits during ART BASEL.

outfit: the printed IOANA CIOLACU dress and my NAVYBOOT sandals with my silver DIESEL clutch, ready for BASEL NACHT at VOLTA11.
whilst strolling thru the web I found this awesome baby blue top by STREET ONE and I just had to share it with you. it is the perfect key piece for a great summer look and I found two very nice ways to wear it. the first one is a casual everyday look for a rather swiss summer day and the other one is a chic everyday look for a hot day. the best thing is that you can mix this top with so many things you already have in your wardrobe.
so as you can see for this casual look you need black pumps and blue skinny jeans – thats it. of course you can add accessories like jewelry or a nice handbag but the basic look can be achieved by combining these three items.
here I am showing a very easy and summery look and I know that a lot of you are not so keen on wearing white but in fact it is such a perfect color for a hot summer day! I love the combo of white beige and babyblue. also in this case the outfit can be accessorized with jewelry or a nice handbag.
in case you like the top it is on SALE (-40%) and also available in other colors:
this weekend I was in KARLSRUHE (read more here >>) and I was wearing the top with black 7/8 pants and black BIRKENSTOCK shoes, unfortunately I could not take a proper photo but I think you can see what you need to see in the one below : )
# since this top has very thin straps I recommend to wear a strapless bra – it just looks a lot nicer when there are only the straps of the shirt.
# do you like the layering look? if so then choose a bigger size and layer it with other singlets or another similar top.
# in or out ? you can wear this top inside a high waist skirt meaning to tuck it in in the front or back. BUT it can also be worn outside, meaning over a skinny jeans.
there are many other ways to wear this top and of course I will keep you posted about that. just stay up to date with my blog.
sigh – I am super happy that the week is over and that we can dive into the weekend. unfortunately the sun is not shining today but there are many nice things to see at BLICKFANG today and tomorrow. (SAT until 8pm / SUN until 7pm)
top & sunglasses C&A (vintage via fleamarket)
have a lovely day and I hope you will have time to check out BLICKFANG at messe basel – hall 3.
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!
for the readers among you that remember criss cross and how they wore their pants the wrong way around I had exactly such a moment when I was wearing this outfit last week. 🙂
the gorgeous black PARENTI’S cashemere sweater has a HUGE V-neck and I really didnt feel like wearing a top below or taping the sweater to my boobs – so I took a criss cross decision and wore the sweater the wrong way around and it actually didnt feel so bad at all and also it didnt look too bad either. for future times I would totally do it the same way!

pumps L’AUTRE CHOSE
as I was shopping a little at the SALE I have put together some outfits with the new pieces. the black coat, the sequin skirt, the gem-stone print skirt and the rosa wool cardigan. with help of polyvore I made these collages. there are so many ways to wear these items and I am sure I will show you many more. I am such a big fan of skirts and those two skirts are so special and can be worn with all different kind of tops.
