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!
so a month ago I signed up for ZALON and ordered a styling box. in case you dont know what zalon is, it is a styling service by zalando. I had to answer some questions and choose between different styles and colors that I usually wear. then I had to say for what occasion I was needing the clothes. I wanted shoes with fringe and I asked for a dinner outfit. you can book a slot for a phone call or order without. I went for the second and uploaded a photo of me and some nice shoes with fringe that I saw. after completing the questions you will get a list of stylists that would match with your style. I chose Anja.
finally I can show you my ART BASEL outfit and the cool thing for you is that the pieces are on SALE now – yay. I found this lovely jersey dress by ARMANI JEANS and the super comfy flat shoes by MARCO TOZZI. the dress is now 90 CHF instead of 175 CHF and the shoes are 23 CHF instead of 41 CHF – thats a nice deal!
I got back from my one week vacation in sicily, castellammare del golfo to be precise, and oh boy it was super nice there. I miss the beach already… but I need to get back to work – so many nice things out there that I wanna feature on my blog. lots of ART BASEL posts will be following and soon also my SICILY GUIDE for CASTELLAMMARE DEL GOLFO – stay tuned.
JUNE is here and the temperatures dropped 15 ° C lets hope for better weather during ART Basel. well today I was wearing my comfy new grey pants with the new XXL hat and layering helped. the pants where on SALE for 5 CHF – what a bargain! the hat is for the hot summer days – I cant wait!

mixing different greys is one of my favorite things and I realized that I have a ton of grey clothes. at the moment I am putting together my outfits for the ART BASEL week and I also found a wonderful dress by ARMANI JEANS via zalando.ch – have a look here >>
I am so in love with my new XXL hat : ) and I have already worn it on a sunny day at the rhein. people gave me funny looks but thats not my problem. anyway I hope this outfit was inspiring and lets see what tomorrows forecast brings. HAPPY TUESDAY!
last week I went to the STÜCKI shopping center in basel and it is one of these places where I go with my mom, we always have a nice parkingspot right in front of the entrance and we can talk about private stuff, grab a delicious juice and walk around. there is hardly anybody in the shopping center, ever since it has opened so many shops have closed and half of the second floor is closed.. so it is quiet a drag to see that but really cool to go shopping as you have all the space for yourself and there will be always a free changing room : ) so when I was there last week I saw the big SALE sign at the WE shop and below there was this cool rosa dress for 15 CHF – what a pink bomb bargain! this made me so happy that I had to dance a little bit for you!

the dress i made out of polyester but it feels super soft and comfortable – it is one of these dresses that you put on and you are ready to go. BUT you of course you would have to like pink. for the people from BASEL in case you like the dress – go to the WE shop at STÜCKI they still had a bout 10 to 15 dresses there 🙂 I mean for 15 CHF thats an awesome price!
as you can see I have recovered from my bike accident and now I have to wait for the bruises to heal. excuse my knee and my elbow – I didnt feel like photoshopping it : ) I hope you all have a nice sunday and try to enjoy this long weekend to the max.in case you are bored then have a look at the different categories (fashion / design / beauty / lifestyle / events / art / men / social media) and I am sure you will find some nice things there. enjoy!

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!
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!
that is something rather unusual for me. I hardly ever wear a complete black outfit. and it is funny that even when I try to wear a complete black outfit I still find one or two things that are not black – today it is my light grey tights.

something that I have been seeing a lot lately: skirts with lace. and I wanted to see how I can wear this look in many different ways. here is one of the looks. I have found the skirt here and I think it runs rather big. I ordered size 36 and I feel its a tiny bit big around my waist but I didnt want to send it back and felt like wearing it right away.
one of my favorite pieces at the very moment – the blue sweater top by H&M – it totally meets my style, I think it is not cheap for a H&M top, as it costs 59.90 CHF and I wouldnt be surprised if it ends up in SALE, like so many times before when I bought something that I found was a bit too much and then I saw it for half of the price.. well, well, I found this nice detail photo and didnt want to keep this from you!

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.
