aww, I found so many wonderful pieces at C&A and want to share with you some stylish and versatile outfits. As the title mentions, FALL WINTER LOOK INSPIRATION, I want to inspire you to wear some of your pieces that you might have already have in your closet in a different way.
The first look is very basic but a rather chic look. I somehow always feel a bit more chic when wearing a black/white look. But maybe thats just me. 🙂 Anyhow, I put together a white ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with an oversized black lace detail tank top and wear it with blue skinny jeans and a black/beige clutch. To make the look more casual one can wear sneakers. The look can be easily changed by wearing heels or like in my case below to wear small black heels, that make it all a bit more elegant.
And now I wanna get to my second look inspiration. A mustard ribbed 3/4 sleeve shirt with high waist jeans and green/brown tweed heels, gold jewelry and an oversized denim jacket and a big green alpaca scarf. The color combo of that look is so totally me. I love the mix of denim, green and yellow. Also in that case you can easily switch the shoes and make the look a bit more everyday.

Last but not least I am showing you a look that I have already featured on the blog before. The article was called: “How to wear a Summer Dress in Fall” read more here >> I am still so much in love with this kind of layering look. As it is no longer fall and we have moved into winter I am adding some thick tights and would switch the flat shoes with warm boots and finish the look with a warm coat or wear a big scarf.

I hope you have found my outfit inpirations helpful and that it will inspire you to wear your clothes in a new way. Most of the basic pieces, like the ripped shirts, the tank top and the long sweater, I have found at C&A in Basel. I am always amazed about how many cool and versatile pieces I can find there. The clutch that I am wearing in look #1 is also by C&A and I have used it so much thru out summer and realized that its a great all year around clutch.
Special thanks to Miguel for taking the photos of me. X
I found some awesome pieces from the new fall/winter collection at C&A in Basel, Switzerland and some of the pieces are indeed available via the onlineshop, these are the pieces that you can see above.
I found another denim shirt with embelishment that is not in the online shop (yet) – lets see maybe I can add it to the list later. anyways, I will soon upload outfit inspirations including these new fall pieces. if the weather is decent I can shoot this weekend. stay tuned. X
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!

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.
hahaha as you can see from the phot below. I really dont know and I also dont really care : )
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.
today is the first day of our trip to SICILY and of course I have also brought this top/dress to wear during the vacation – I try to take some really nice sicilian photos in castellammare del golfo. until then stay tuned for something nice tomorrow. X
this is one of my favorite pieces from SCOPE 2015 I can look at it forever and always see something new. the coolest things about works like this is that you can really zoom into the painting and see even more things.the title fits: NEW SCENERY IN DREAM. yes I can see the new scenery in my pinkish dream.

about the artist and project
1950 Born in Seoul
Graduated from Oriental Painting of Faculty of Art, Chugae Art College
Graducated from Graduate School of Education, Dongguk University
HOW IS IT DONE? “his works were created by reapplying white color on top of ground color applied by using acrylic water color and drawing the outline of mountain using air gun filled with water and regular brush while erasing the water color on surface to reveal the ground”
unfortunately it was very hard to find anything about the artist because not even on the KEUMSAN gallery website there is a link or any additional info about his artwork. I have found that quiet common among asian galleries and artist. AND I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS, why?? It should be the job of the gallery to present the artist with all the information regarding him and his works.
I am back from my tiny press trip to PARIS and I have a lot to share with you. these two days were packed with lots of nice things. thank you C&A for inviting me – it was a blast and I met so many interesting fashion people. this morning I made a tiny video where I was rambling about what I have been doing in PARIS – it will be up via YOUTUBE and can be seen here on my blog via the SOCIAL MEDIA category.
3 hour train ride from BASEL to PARIS with the TGV – arrived at GARE DE LYON and took a cab to the HOTEL MAMA SHELTER. there I found my MY WEBSPOT pocket WI-FI at the reception and it was super easy to get it started, I just had to press ON and enter the code that was on the back of the pocket WI-FI. ZACK! I was connected to the INTERNET WORLD. thank you so much for letting me use your services while I was in PARIS.
then I took the metro and went to the stop ALÉSIA where the SONIA RYKIEL outlet shop was and indeed I found something nice there! I will go a bit more into detail about the fashion part in another blogpost. now I wanna continue with the schedule, so after the shopping I met up with all the other bloggers and journalistes from all around europe and we drove with shuttle buses from the hotel to the LE PERCHOIR bar.
such a pitty that it was raining that very evening when we were at the LE PERCHOIR bar as the rooftop bar is just absolutely stunning with a view all over PARIS.
after the drinks at the bar we drove back to the HOTEL where we all had a dinner together. well, I dont really wanna talk about the dinner as there wouldnt be much nice to say and I guess by saying that I have just told you everything you need to know. 🙂 after dinner everyone was tired and went to bed. I went for some drinks and returned at about 1:30 am.
at 10 AM we were all ready and waited for the buses to bring us to the C&A showroom. there we were welcomed with tea, coffee and croissants.
and the decoration of the showroom was very very nice. the place is actually a gallery and therefore there was lots of light and white walls and floors.
I will show you a bit about the location. I quickly spoke to the DJane and I really liked her performance. the whole location was filled with bloggers and journalistes, editors, designers and C&A staff. I took many photos of the collection and will show you soon.
alright, now I will start editing the video for YOUTUBE and will start selecting the photos for the FASHION post. I hope you liked the photos that I took and stay tuned for more. X
today is christmas and I wanna show you my outfit for the day. I found 2 new things – the grey skirt at H&M and the lovely black down vest from C&A. the production of down feathers can be very cruel to the birds and therfore I had to ask C&A how they were dealing with animal cruelty. they gave me a handout that stated that the down feathers used were only from birds that have been already killed due to meat industry. I wanted to share this with you as I am sure this really matters to you aswell. so in that sense I wish you all a lovely christmas eve! xx
