ONE DRESS – MANY WAYS TO WALK IT
ONE DRESS – MANY WAYS TO WALK IT
I am so in love with this new dress that I have found in one of my favorite shops in Basel: Le Mouton a 5 Pates. A super simple grey SILVIAN HEACH dress to wear in many different ways. Today I wanna show you that you can wear the same dress and only change the shoes. A very simple way to make your dresses more versatile.
one dress – many ways to walk it #1
lets start with the comfiest and easiest way to walk: Sneakers. A pair of black sneakers should be key to every wardrobe. A very easy way to dress down a nice dress.

Metallic shoes were quiet a big trend. And I found my silver shoes in C&A on SALE for 19 CHF. An amazing bargain. Not only great to dress up your look in a comfy way but also perfect to jazz up a simple jeans and sweatshirt look.

And now a very easy way to upgrade your dress by wearing black heels. In my opinion every lady should have a pair of black heels. No matter if the heel height is only 2 cm.

Simple black flats, also something that we all should own. Nothing works better to make a chic outfit look more casual. I found these babes at ALDO in Marseille.

Boots are a great way to wear a dress in winter. I found these wedge boots at the Zalando Lounge Sale. They are very comfy to walk in due to the wedge heel. Black boots are perfect becasue they are working with so many different colors and looks. I am not so sure anymore whether I like these kind of boots with jeans. It somehow reminds me of the late 90s, early 2000, when this boot over skinny jean was a big success. Maybe with a pair of over the knee boots, who knows.
I wanna thank Miguel for taking the photos of me, it was quiet an adventure. We found this little platform on the water (Rhein) that was perfect to take the photos. I was able to get there with almost all the shoes, except for the wedge boots that you can see in the photo above.
Here is a photo that shows how hard it was to get to that tiny platform. I was prepared to fall in the super cold water but luckily didn’t. 🙂 Have a lovely day. X
MINIMALIST BUT WOW
HOW TO MAKE POM POMS
MY BASICS vs MY STAPLE PIECES
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!

HOME SWEET HOME
ouff, it is monday night – two days after my birthday and I am processing all the joy and love from my party. it was an epic night – one to remember and keep close to the heart. again thank you to all my lovely friends for making it happen. thanks for all the gorgeous flowers and thanks for the delicious chocolate and olive oil. I got so many cool things, some of them are worth to blog about because I have never seen such things. stay tuned for more info.
now back to the HOME SWEET HOME topic, because today I wanna show you the small transformation of our guest room. we are not completely done – it will be a step by step change. so far I have flipped the black DRÖNA boxes by IKEA that are actually ment to be put in the IKEA shelf with the squares, I forgot the name of it and I used the black big binder paper clips to stack and secure them.
once you have built your desired shelf with the boxes and clips it is time to decorate the top.I am a big fan of WOHNREVUE and a stack of magazines always looks good. next to the magazines I put the new HOMMAGE d’ipuro ST ANTOINE candle and the ipuro season line diffuser in WHITE ORCHID. mhhmm, they are both super nice and together even better – scents are such a personal thing and
everyone has a different approach so just visit the next shop like DEPOT or MANOR and see for yourself which scents you like. next to the candle and diffuser I put the two MOLESKINE books one for travel and one for fashion. our future plan is to build two shelfes for all our electronic devices, office and creative stuff like folders, paint and other materials. I will soon show you the other side of the room with the new couch, that can be extended to a bed. we just had guests from poland and they said they liked to sleep on it. above the couch there is the world map with the pins – something that I have already shared with you – read more here >>
DO IT YOURSELF advent calendar
today is december first and I am actually very late with showing you this post as all the advent calendars start today 🙂 anyway I felt the urge to share my idea with you – maybe for next year. who knows!
what do you need?
white paper / one thicker paper for template
black envelopes and cards
black pegs (mini)
you could write 24 reasons why you love someone – you could give 24 vouchers to someone – you could remember 24 events with someone and re-capture them – you could draw 24 nice things – as you see I could go on and on and on with ideas. and let me tell you – the advent season is not about spending lots of money it is about caring for others and sharing love. so I saw many nice DIY advent calendars that involved buying 24 items and I think you can also make someone happy with words and only spending a little. I found all my things at Manor in basel and I have spent 13 CHF 🙂
draw a christmas tree on a thicker piece of paper and use this as a template. copy the shape to the white paper and cut 24 trees.
write 24 ideas on the black cards using a silver pen
mark the numbers 1 to 24 on the white christmas trees with a black pen
glue the christmas trees to the black envelopes
hang a black cord to a wall and place the cards with the pegs
THAT’S IT! as easy as ABC or 123, right?
happy advent season. xx
