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!
unfortunately I couldnt go to Paris this year to visit the fashionweek as I am not feeling too well at the moment. I am very much looking forward to going next year in february/march. so today I am showing you this gorgeous blue silk dress by ACNE that I paired with the gorgeous new shoes that I have found at the fashionffish outlet from NAVYBOOT and the awesome silver clutch and the beige teddy from the DIESEL sample sale in Zurich. thank you Thomas for taking the photos!

again I will tell you a bit about the zalandosummerhouse. we arrived thursday night and were arriving with this old beautiful omnibus. the next day started with yoga in the garden. there were different workshops to attend like the mint&berry streetstyle workshop, the make your own flower bouquet and the make your own summerhat workshop. unfortunately that very day the weather was not as good as it was the day before but we made the best out of it. Michèle from fashionfraction Blog took some funny photos where I am running in the rain. they will be soon on the blog.
the castle herzfelde and its surrounding is such a beautiful place. endless lawns of green, greenhouses, fields, trees that were shaped in cubes. I was thinking a lot about Alice in Wonderland. the park around the castle had several places that reminded me of the story. here you can read more about my time at the #zalandosummerhouse – enjoy! xx
this dress says it all – flowers, summer, silk – it has the perfect cut and it feels like if I wouldnt be wearing anything. I wore it to the Biennale opening of Khaled Malas’ excavating the sky exhibition in Venice, Italy two weeks ago.

I love silk and I love patterns so when I had my hands on these buggers I couldnt let them go! the GANNI blouse has this boho chic pattern with the flowers – a perfect piece to match with jeans or black shorts. I took some really nice photos wearing this blouse at the #zalandosummerhouse and I will soon upload the photos to my blog. aaww.. the mint TIBI dress – a dream has come true! unfortunately this dress is already sold out. it looks really nice with my redish hair and it is super comfortable to wear – 100% silk – the best thing about this dress: it has pockets! the printed silk dress by SEE BY CHLOÉ is another dream come true – seriously! I love silk dresses and I love prints so this is the perfect combination – a printed silk dress! with this dress I really need to wear heels as the length of the dress is covering my knees and would make me look very short with flats 🙂 I wore it last night with beige platform sandals and a leatherjacket to a birthday party and I made a huge stain!! I really really hope, hmm they (drycleaner) will be able to remove it! I am such a scatterbrained person and thats why things like this happen to me! anyway, back to my favorite zalando pieces which make very nice keypieces to wear with other things.
thank you very much for inviting me to this years Audemars Piguet press day during the Art Basel 2014. It was a wonderful day and I have met so many interesting people. I really enjoyed the AXA tour thru the Art Unlimited and also the tour of the Audemars Piguet booth.
