I think this is my first crop top outfit on the blog EVER and I am wearing it at the very last moment of the season before its getting too cold and the freezing winter season starts. I got this lovely black crop top from the wonderful Halle and she gave it to me in order to wear it with my lovely Ioana Ciolacu dress that I was wearing for the VOLTA11 event. see more here >>
heels L’AUTRE CHOSE
earrings THOMAS SABO
this is a very casual way of wearing a crop top as I am not wearing any heavy jewelry nor other accessories other than my small black earrings. in my opinion black and pink go well but its a thin line, sometimes it can look really really cheap, I hope you agree that this look doesn’t.
how to wear crop tops?
I love to wear crop tops with high waisted pencil skirts. crop tops can be either loose or fitted. in case you are not a skirt person and you have a very nice belly to show the world, but really only then, you can wear a crop top with a nice pair of boyfriend jeans. I have an oversized loose cashmere crop top that I was wearing with destroyed boyfriend jeans before but since the top is rather oversized you can not really see my belly : ) so as I said I prefer to only show a tiny line between top and bottom, I find somehow the crop top outfits look a bit more elegant and less revealing like that. I am not a teenager anymore ; ) and I also dont have Miley Cyrus as my role model, chchchchchch.
here you can see the oversized cashmere top with a black pencil skirt >>
and here with a different black skirt >> and soon I will show you my boyfriend jeans + crop top outfit. stay tuned. X
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.
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’S711 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.
711 SKINNY “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!
blazer LANVIN for H&M
such a nice casual every day look – I am def a denim person, my go to outfits always include a pair of skinny jeans!
Alicia Keys sang the official song for the new LEVI’S women denim collection and it is called 28,000 Days have a look at the new collection here:
Gülten was one of the brave people that were up for a BIG CHANGE that was requested by Coiffure Winter. like this we want to show you the diversity of Stefanie Winter’s coiffure salon. there are so many ways to achieve a great change and we found three looks for three ladies. Coiffure Winter was responsible for the hair and makeUp / Claudia Link she took the final THE BIG CHANGE photos (click here to see all of them) and I was responsible for the styling and the documentation of the project. lets have a look at GÜLTEN’s change:
before THE CHANGE
the CHANGE has started.. there is no way back : )
we indeed had to cut some hair for the change but it will be absolutely worth it –
you will see. the CHANGE – the hair was cut and blow dried in order to make tiny corrections. and then she will be ready for the color transformation.
watching other people change is something really nice, especially when you like to document things. hands down, I already have my favorite but I wanna show you some photos of the other two ladies before I reveal my favorite.
from blonde to purple and soon to be washed out purple look – what a change!
and now I wanna show you some steps of THE CHANGE from blonde to red with fringe:
look at her awesome long hair – no we didnt want to cut it but we wanted to
completely change her look by cutting fringe and dying her hair red. we had to cut some of her hair for the fringe – say good bye Elvi : )
are you ready to see the final THE CHANGE photos by Claudia Link?
and at this very moment I wanna say thank you to all of you! X
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 found something nice – some super comfy black wool pants! as I sit a lot in front of the computer it is very important for me to wear comfortable things. so when I saw these pants I knew I had to have them. todays look is a mix bewtween elegant and casual. the heels could be easily replaced with a nice pair of flats.
I was so inspired by this lovely photo via tumblr that I had to wear something similar. of course I did not want to copy the complete outfit but pick up some pieces like the pants and the coat – colorwise I think I could have done a bit more but hey – these are the clothes I have and I need to work with them. the funny thing about those super old H&M pants is that many times they were on the way out and were very close to being sold at the fleamarket but somehow they have always found back the way to my closet and today I am very happy that they did.

blouse VINTAGE (grandma)
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

I found my nice light blue turtleneck sweater at C&A and will find as many ways as possible to wear it. that very day I was wearing it with a fakeleather pencilskirt and heels but ofcourse there are also many other more casual ways to wear it. stay tuned for more.
I wanna present you my lovely grey bag called BOMBATA. it fits my ipad or it could also fit a laptop and thats what it is actually meant to be for – a business bag. BUT of course I wouldnt like a bag only for one purpose so I decided to make the BOMBATA business bag a bit more fashion 🙂 by wearing it like a normal bag.
I wore my grey BOMBATA yesterday and I have spent such a lovely afternoon in the sun at KABAR in Basel. sooo wonderful that October brings such nice weather! and did you spot my big watch? isnt it a super nice piece? Its made and designed by ADVOLAT a swiss watch brand based in Basel. I will soon show you the whole outfit. stay tuned. xx
yesterday I was strolling over the fleamarket in Basel and found an amazing wool jacket in the sweetest pastel colors you can only imagine. I threw it in the wash machine and hope that it will survive that journey – once its fresh and clean I will show you here on the blog.
