I wanna let you know that all the clothes that I am wearing on the blog are in my wardrobe and that I am not accepting any other cooperations where I have to return the clothes and make it look like I have all these clothes but in fact I don’t. this would feel like cheating to you guys and to myself too. anyway, now that I have said that I wanna share some outfit inspirations with a basic silver top and pants by TARA JARMON available via @fashionvestis and how I was wearing this look in three different ways – hence the title: mix what you have!
top and pants TARA JARMON
clutch and sunglasses C&A
pants TARA JARMON
top TARA JARMON
jeans CURRENT ELLIOT
so with great basic pieces you can make even a small wardrobe very versatile its just the way you combine and mix what with what. for these inspirations I wanted the look to be light and elegant but suitable for all the different occasions.
what would i wear to a gallery opening?
what would I wear for a dinner or even a business meeting?
what would I wear every day?
what are basic pieces for me? hmm it could be the best white t-shirt or the perfect skinny jeans, the best fitting black blazer or comfy black heels. these are all things that can always pull a great outfit. a grat matching top and pants are also great as they can be worn individualy or together. so when I am talking about basic pieces I mean clothes that can be well combined.
here you can vote for my outfit <3
Cristian has a new watch – YAY! it is the ADVOLAT CITY BAUHAUS in white with chronograph. I have already shown you his other CITY BAUHAUS watch and the only difference is that this one is white and has a chronograph. read the previous blogpost here >>
this photo was taken at the VITRA SUMMER PARTY during ART Basel 2015 and I absolutely love his outfit.
sneakers NIKE FREE
the cool things about the ADVOLAT watches, besides being swiss design, are that they are A very comfy and B can be worn for day and night. In Cristians case we just change the watchband and the watch looks absolutely different. he has a more chunky genuine leather band with stiching for everyday and a sleek brown leather watchband for the more elegant days or nights like during ART Basel. with every watch you can buy an additional watchband to make your watch more versatile and in the end I think it is absolutely worth it.

a rather simple but AHA outfit. one color is dominating and there is lots of sparkle and shine from the top and pants. therefore I didnt feel like adding any heavy golden or silver jewelry and only chose two matching accessories: the white shoes by BATA and the cute clock bag and black sunglasses by C&A. I absolutely love the shoes with this outfit for me this is a match made in heaven as I first did not really know with what I should wear these super high white heels.
I first fell in love with the silver top and actually wanted to pair it with the red skirt that unfortunately had a broken zipper but then in the end I found the matching pants and taataaaaa this is MY FASHION VESTIS LOOK. I was asked to join a blogger contest where we can win a 3000 CHF shopping voucher and a photoshooting. as soon as I will have the link where you can vote I will put it HERE

It is a top and a dress, lets agree on that. I have found this piece on SALE at h&m for 20 CHF and I wanna thank Freya very much for the birthday voucher that I used for this purchase – thank you so much for coming to my party!
from the front it looks like a dress and from the side it looks like a top.

about her WORK
“Paper’s versatility is what attracted me to it as my primary medium. Its structural and aesthetic possibilities reveal themselves through my continuous experimentation. I am in love with paper.
I have been folding paper for 15 years. I like repetition and rhythm. My first paper piece was conceived during a stay in Las Vegas and made with hotel stationary: The project folded up and stowed away in the bottom of my suitcase. At that time I began working more abstractly as a way of representing my impressions of places and recollections. Paper became the perfect material to convey ephemeral experience and the ultimate intangibility of memory.
Transforming a two-dimensional surface into a three dimensional shape offers a variety of arrangements for the play of light and shadow on different flat planes.
I use folding to investigate these opportunities, and the circle acts as a character to reveal and conceal form. When repeated, these forms are my substitute for the geometric grid, my response to the squares of Sol Lewitt and Carl Andre and homage to Agnes Martin’s rectangles.”
