the best thing about fall is that I can enjoy a hot bath tub again, I love to take baths and soak in the tub for almost an hour : ) so yesterday I repurchased my beloved DRESDNER ESSENZ bath scents, they are amazing, for only 1.50 CHF you have a lovely smelling either relaxing or stimulating bath scents, with bubbles or without. I am not sponsored by them : ) I just really love their products. I will soon get more into details about their bath scents.
mix and match, is my favorite thing to do, and I am sure you can remember this orange skirts from previous outfits before. and thats what fashion is all about for me, it should be versatile. I love to wear my clothes in different ways and love how things look more casual or more elegant. see the different outfits at the very end. HAPPY TUESDAY and enjoy wearing your skirts and tops. 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.
finally I can show you my new coat that can be worn as a dress too, as the temperatures dropped a bit and I was feeling a lot more in the mood to shoot these photos. : ) I got this beautiful trench coat from MINT & BERRY and it is now on SALE for 55 instead of 75 CHF.
I paired the coat with some really comfy heels that I bought several years ago and have so far never let me down. for sure I will try to wear this coat as a dress in fall or winter or incase I have a nice outdoor event. NOTE the color is described as nude but in fact it is more apricot or rose. I dont mind that because I think it makes it a lot more special compared to all the other nude or beige trench coats.

here you can see me wearing the coat as a trench coat with my bright aztec print dress and flat shoes, this makes the whole outfit a lot more casual but still chic. I am ready for fall but not a rainy grey fall nooo, a rather sunny one. do you have your fall winter collection together? soon I will show you my personal fall/ winter favorites. I am waiting for the parcels to arrive… stay tuned.
a trenchcoat is a good key piece for your wardrobe. it can be worn with dresses or pants, casual or chic there are many ways to wear it. this is a perfect in between season coat, especially here in Basel, Switzerland.

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!

such a nice casual every day look – I am def a denim person, my go to outfits always include a pair of skinny jeans!

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 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.
the ART Basel week is over and I had such a good time. once again my dear friends from the netherlands were here and this year Justin showed a german artist
SEBASTIAN WEGGLER at his TEN HAAF PROJECTS gallery space inside VOLTA11.
my schedule was tight especially the first three days were very intense, lots of ART lots of DESIGN and lots of PARTYING.
ART WEEK 2015
here you can find all my posts from twitter, facebook and instagram.
monday I started with VOLTA11 and ART UNLIMITED and enjoyed myself at the LISTE OPENING PARTY at VOLKSHAUS. tuesday I had breakfast at the Rolls Royce art space inside ELISABETHEN KIRCHE with Isaac Julien and his so very cool video installations from iceland – read more about the project here. and later on I went to see DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and also saw the AUDEMARS PIGUET fireflies installation by ROBIN MEIER – I also blogged about that project – more here. in the evening we had an awesome party on DAS SCHIFF by DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and PERROTIN where we all met TAKESHI MURAKAMI and took funny photos with his staff. wednesday I started my day with DAVIDOFF and went to ART BASEL and SCOPE. later on we had a super nice time at VITRA – we were so lucky that it did not rain that day. thursday I had time to see ART BASEL again but only for a short time as I had to go home and see whether the delivery guy had brought my beautiful dresses by IOANA CIAOLACU for thursday and friday night. thursday night was BASEL NACHT where I was one of the hosts by VOLTA11 and I planned to wear the gorgeous red printed silk dress that had not arrived until fifteen minutes before the start of BASEL NACHT 🙂 but it was absolutely worth to wait for it. friday I had time to see ART BASEL and DESIGN MIAMI again and then spent a wonderful evening at Fondation Beyeler. afterwards we all met at CAMPARI CLUB at KUNSTHALLE. saturday I had time to see LISTE ART UNLIMITED, DESIGN MIAMI and THE SOLO PROJECT and then went back to VOLTA. sunday I went to SCOPE where I have found something really nice. anyway, I will soon upload all the photos I took during the week and I will also tell you about the guy with the spices at Fondation Beyeler park. stay tuned for more and now I wanna show you some of my outfits during ART BASEL.

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.

spring in sight! today I wanna show you a nice mix of my beloved roy lichtenstein pattern coat, a simple black dress and 2 bright accessories: my red shoes and my red hat! I mean it doesnt have to be a comic pattern coat – it could be any kind of pattern or mix of bright colors that can be combined with black and one of the colors from the coat. in my case it was red black and the pattern from the coat!
