the installation is absolutely breath taking I could sit there forever and watch the different images on the screen. I have explained the piece in the previous post so please go back and read it there : ) being inside the exhibition made me feel like I was there in the cold with Vanessa. it was so nice to take a photo with Isaac Julien and of course I had to ask by whom the clothes were Vanessa Myrie was wearing. his answer was: MIYAKE. beautiful black and white outfits!

for quiet some time I was looking for a white oversized sweater and finally I found one when I was strolling thru the H&M in Weil am Rhein. the cut is really oversized as I am wearing the size XS and I feel it is quiet big already. so today I wanna show you two different versions of the white shirt: a casual one – the one you can see above and below and an elegant one that will follow.

I really had an amazing sunday today – I slept until eleven and then had a nice breakfast followed by some blog work and delicious frozen joghurt – mmmhhhmmm. then I took these photos and in the end I found time to sit at the rhein in the sun. now I wanna show you the same shirt in a more elegant way – have a look:
same shirt different style. thats done very easily with such a bling bling sequin skirt like this one. I am so glad I waited for it to be on SALE and cost half as much as it would have before. : ) and I guess that thought and the sunny weather made me dance a bit.

I also found another nice piece in Weil am Rhein and I hope that I can show it to you very soon. have a lovely start into the week. X
yes spring and summer have come to basel and as in the years before it is not a slight change of temperatures nooo, it is a very rapid change from 12 degrees C it jumps to 30 degrees C the next day… so for the wardrobe that means to always be prepared. I have my spring summer and fall clothes in the same place. the only things that I have removed are my winter coats and winter dresses – the rest stays because you never know you might need something with longsleeves the next day..
when I was in Paris I found this lovely bold blue silk blouse at the SONIA RYKIEL outlet and I love to wear it with other bright colors.

I wish you all a nice extended weekend. I hope the weather will stay nice and that we can all enjoy some ice cream in the sun. X
this is my tiny hope that spring will arrive early this year 🙂 and therefore I have put together this pastel – floral outfit. I have showed you my zalando spring haul a couple of days ago and today I am finally wearing my new grey pumps by tamaris. they are extremly comfy – the first time that I wear tamaris shoes and I am quiet impressed! due to the platform the actual heel is not so tall and one can really feel that when walking and standing for longer periods.
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.
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
something new! yay – thank you so so much for sending this lovely business card case my way. I absolutely love it and can use it very very well. so therefore I wanna share with you this awesome swiss online boutique. click here and enjoy shopping.
a rather casual and comfy outfit that I am showing you today. but I am very happy with my newest purchase of jeans. in fact they are my new favorite jeans. I found out that the perfect length for me is to buy short sizes. luckily C&A runs short (and long) sizes and the 36 short fits me perfectly. another favorite of mine is the NINO BOLLAG jacket – a great piece to slack over almost every outfit. I guess thats why it is a favorite. when I think about my favorite clothing items I see that many of them can be worn in various ways with lots of different other things. what is your favorite piece? let me know. xx

aww.. I think this is definitely one of the great things about winter time – I get to wear my wintery leggings with fancy patterns. I got this pair years ago at H&M and there are many places where you can find similar pairs.
and it is my new SONY phone aka camera. I have played with the camera for the last couple of days and I still can not decide whether I like this one or the SAMSUNG alpha better. I think it is very hard to tell the difference of the quality, it is just a different handling. the coolest thing about the camera is the timelapse, hahaha, I had so much fun testing this out, and of course I had to take a “baywatch”-like running slow motion video. 🙂 I love love love the color, it reminds me of TIFFANY & CO! for the ones among you that are interested in more info about the phone please read more here «

I got my hands on this nice limited edition and invited two friends for a wodka shot. I kept the bottle in the freezer to make it look nice and cold and also one has told me that WODKA tastes a lot better when super cold. but not only the bottle came out of the freezer – also the glasses. the glasses are made out of ice and this makes a quick wodka shot even faster. special thanks to thomas who brought me those fancy funny glasses!
About Andy Warhol

With a background as a highly successful commercial artist, Warhol reinvented himself as a famous Pop Artist.

He quickly became renowned as one of the artists who defined the Pop Art movement, a generation of artists who turned to the worlds of mass commercial production, advertising, and popular culture for the raw materials and inspiration for their work. Incredibly prolific in various endeavours, Warhol is recognized as one of the most influential avant garde filmmakers of his generation, founded Interview Magazine in 1969, produced and managed The Velvet Underground, authored numerous books, was an avid photographer, directed music videos and even hosted his own talk-show on MTV, Andy Warhol died unexpectedly in February 22, 1987 firmly established as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, artist and international celebrity.”
