so let me start with the amazing news first: I am going to Paris on Monday early in the morning and will stay until tuesday night. for that very occasion I was shopping for a nice dress. Indeed I found one and also bought it but I absolutely didnt like the buttons. I knew I had to change them and was not so sure what kind of buttons to get. I have a huge collections of single buttons that I collect from dresses and blouses but somehow I didnt want to put different buttons on that white lace blouse dress. and then I found the right pair. here you can see the new and the old buttons, what do you think? isnt it a super nice upgrade for the dress?
I will soon tell you more details about my trip to Paris and hope to share many nice photos with you. so I was thinking what to pack for a two day trip to Paris? I decided to travel with the black jumpsuit and my chunky sandals and to wear the white lace dress with the wooden sandals for the event. also I wanna bring my brown and my black sunglasses and also the beige DKNY bag will work for both outfits. thats what I think now but lets see how it will turn out in the end 🙂 packing is not my most favorite thing to do as I always have the tendency to bring too much. thats why I am very pround of my very basic packing approach!
I also have some amazing new red/brown pants that I could wear for the way back but I am not sure with what to wear them. lets see, more infos coming soon. X
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.
its saturday morning and I just did my makeup – a very easy one with focus on the eyes. check my nine steps:
step one SUPERDEFENSE by CLINIQUE
step two ALL ABOUT EYES primer by CLINIQUE
step three PERFECTIONIST by ESTÉE LAUDER
step four WONDER PENCIL by NYX
step five EYELASH CURLER by THE BODY SHOP
step six GABON eyeshadow by NARS
step seven SILLAGE eyeshadow by CHANEL
step eight ANSE SOLEIL lipliner by NARS
step nine ANITA lipstick by NARS
to start I use a good moisturizer with SPF 20 and apply it allover my face including my neck. then I use one of my favorite eye shadow primer and let it set so it wont crease with the eyeshadow. I like my skin to look a bit dewy and thats why I love the PERFECTIONIST foundation so much, it blends in very well and makes me look super healthy and fresh. then I conceal some spots around my nose and use the same pen to line my waterline (of course I wipe the pencil before doing so) after that it is time to curl my eyelashes and I will be ready to apply eyeshadow – first I apply the wonderful dark and sparkly eyeshadow and use the ligher color to blend as a transition color. done with the eyes – ready for the lips! I line my lips and use the very subtle almost nudish brown lipstick to fill in my lips. READY for the WEEKEND! photos of the look will be soon on my FB page – stay tuned. xx
another outfit on the blog, this time I am layering my green fluffy funny COMME DES GARCONS jacket by JUNYA WATANABE with the super warm down jacket by C&A (fair down production – read more here >>) this look is a very casual one with a big mix of high and low end clothes. something I love to do is mixing styles and different brands – how boring would it look to wear a head to toe GUCCI outfit – no thanks!

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.
something that I have been seeing a lot lately: skirts with lace. and I wanted to see how I can wear this look in many different ways. here is one of the looks. I have found the skirt here and I think it runs rather big. I ordered size 36 and I feel its a tiny bit big around my waist but I didnt want to send it back and felt like wearing it right away.
so hopefully they will always look as nice as now! I can not tell you how happy I am with these new Originals chelsea boots. I am glad that I picked the brown ones and not the bronze ones, as the brown fits better with other clothes of mine. I wish you all a nice fall and a good start into winter, as some of you may know, my two favorite seasons are spring and summer. so I need lots of nice things to make the fall/winter season bearable.
when I saw Cristians jeans hanging like this on the hook of his closet I had to get my camera and capture it. I think if one wanted to drape jeans like this it would take hours and he just did it randomly and not on purpose 🙂
this made me wear my boyfriend jeans today and I will soon show you the photos of todays look.
I am getting into a cosy fall mood with my scottish wool poncho. thank you dad & monika for bringing me this awesome piece from Scottland! tartan or plaid however you wanna call it is really BIG this season and you can see it everywhere. I love the combination of wool and plaid – like this the fall feeling shows off best and gets you into a cuddling mood. what I love about plaid is that you can mix and match it with almost everything. here I was going for a rather classy elegant look but there are so many other ways to wear plaid. I think it is time for a plaid special. I did one last year already when I fell in love with the plaid skirt by MINT&BERRY – read more here « and here «

I did it. I went BIG. not that size matters in general – but here it does 🙂 I found this lovely piece at the ADVOLAT webshop and was thinking about it for the last couple of weeks before I ended up getting it. Cristian has the ADVOLAT CITY watch and I once stole his watch for a day and really enjoyed wearing a big watch. so this one the FLIEGER 2 is in fact slightly bigger than Cristians one.
