have you checked my POLYVORE account? there are lots of different outfit inspiration and in the end it doesnt matter from which shop or brand your clothes are, just wear your things in a different way. use the cuts and colors as a guide and I m sure you can make your clothes look more versatile.
today is 9/11 my thoughts are with all the people that left their lives. but there is also something very very beautiful happening today, my lovely friend AGATA is getting married today. I am so sad that I can not celebrate with you. but hopefully we can see eachother soon. only the best. lots of love and happiness. X
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.

I wish you all a nice extended weekend. I hope the weather will stay nice and that we can all enjoy some ice cream in the sun. X
In the DIY post I have talked about the white lace dress and that I was changing the buttons and made the dress look very different. so this very dress was my outfit for the C&A night out at LE PERCHOIR and the dinner at the MAMA SHELTER. first I was wearing the dress with my flat animal print flats and then later on changed to my grey tamaris heels. what an awesome dress, I am looking forward to wearing it in many ways during spring/summer!

waiting for the SHUTTLE buses in the rain and being very excited about the drinks at the LE PERCHOIR and the dinner at the HOTEL MAMA SHELTER. I have met so many nice people during the press trip to PARIS and I really hope to stay in touch. yesterday I have uploaded the VIDEO about PARIS – take a look now! >> more photos about the LE PERCHOIR and the C&A showroom HERE <<
I have been wearing some pieces over and over again in differnt outfits and when I was strolling thru my archive I realized which pieces were shown most often on my blog and I felt like summing it up with a favorite pieces blogpost.
this pink skirt that I have found at the fleamarket is one of my favorite skirts and I just absolutely love wearing shades of pink! the skirt looks like someone has sewed it for themselves and there is also no label or tag. so special!
black fake leather skirts in different versions with zipper or without over the knee or mini – I just love wearing fake leather skirts.
the GANNI floral blouse is a real eyecather and also a very comfortable piece to wear. I paired it with shorts and skirts and I totally love to play with different patterns!
the fluffy rosa sweater is also one of my favorite pieces and as I have already told you I love wearing shades of pink. here you can see two of my favorite pieces combined: the fake leather skirt and the fluffy rosa sweater.
and again you can see my awesome pink skirt – it works with flats or heels with different shades of pink or any other colors a real key piece!
the embellished neopren piece is also a very favorite piece of my wardrobe and I love to wear it with either grey or yellow. and thats where my slim straight grey pencil skirt comes in handy – and I saw it is still available at H&M!
a combo of my floral GANNI blouse and the awesome special pink skirt! I am so in love with these two pieces and I can not wait to show you more ways of wearing them. and guess what the grey platform heels that I am wearing in this picture are on SALE right now 55 CH instead of 80 CHF! here <<
and last but not least I am showing you the navy emebellished neopren piece with my super old vintage yellow skirt. aww, so many other favorite pieces that I have not mentioned today <3 wearing different things makes me such a happy person and sharing it with you makes it even better! X
can you see it too? I had a funny moment with my camera and it made a fancy rainbow – yay! but actually I dont wanna talk about rainbows today I rather wanna show you my lovel spring outfit!
I have recently shopped at zalando.ch and I have found some lovely things: read my shopping haul post here << so I am wearing the floral pants – the grey leather pumps – the cute pearl earrings and the lovely beige bag with the pink wallet inside!
this is my tiny hope that spring will arrive early this year 🙂 and therefore I have put together this pastel – floral outfit. I have showed you my zalando spring haul a couple of days ago and today I am finally wearing my new grey pumps by tamaris. they are extremly comfy – the first time that I wear tamaris shoes and I am quiet impressed! due to the platform the actual heel is not so tall and one can really feel that when walking and standing for longer periods.
wearing a subtle mix of yellow and brown! I love to play with colors and materials and I was surprised that I have not worn this combo before. I have found all these items a very long time ago and all of them were on SALE!
the shirt I have found at Benetton in Basel and it is by SISLEY – the skirt is from FIZZEN and the awesome brown pointy pumps are from the NAVYBOOT Outlet at STÜCKI. the brown H&M leather bag found its way for 5 CHF into my wardrobe from the fleamarket 🙂 so yeah, not all of them were on SALE but all of them were a bargain.
I hope you all had a nice weekend and that you can start freshly into the new week – I got loads of things planned for the upcoming week – fashion shootings – cashmere SALE and an event in ZH. stay tuned. X

beanie ACE records
wearing different patterns in black and white and this
inspired me to write something about these kind of looks. when we wear
to many patterns in different colors we often look like a circus clown.
that’s why I am only wearing black and white with different patterns. mix and match is something I love to do <3 and I got quiet a
collection of things to match or mix. another thing that I am aware of
is to wear a simple hair style and a one colored clutch.another thing is that you can play with the lengths of your clothes and layer them nicely so one can see all the different patterns.
I am so happy with my new grey skirt and therefore I am wearing it non stop. it is an amazing key piece as I can wear almost everything with it. I paired it with my lovely navy neoprene top that I recently found – btw it is now on SALE 🙂 I knew I should have waited.. hahahahahha. I took these photos two days ago and at the moment I could not wear this outfit as it would be to freaking cold. we got snow in basel and the temperature dropped to below zero °C – welcome to the real swiss winter.
coat ESPRIT skirt H&M
today is christmas and I wanna show you my outfit for the day. I found 2 new things – the grey skirt at H&M and the lovely black down vest from C&A. the production of down feathers can be very cruel to the birds and therfore I had to ask C&A how they were dealing with animal cruelty. they gave me a handout that stated that the down feathers used were only from birds that have been already killed due to meat industry. I wanted to share this with you as I am sure this really matters to you aswell. so in that sense I wish you all a lovely christmas eve! xx
something new! yay – thank you so so much for sending this lovely business card case my way. I absolutely love it and can use it very very well. so therefore I wanna share with you this awesome swiss online boutique. click here and enjoy shopping.
a beige midi wool skirt that I have found at the LE MOUTON A 5 PATTES outlet boutique for 54 CHF instead of 187 CHF – what a bargain. for the people in basel this place is def worth a visit – for men and women!
skirt SOUVENIR CLUBBING
cardigan COMMES DES GARCONS for H&M
heels BOTTEGA VENETA
CHRISTMAS is around the corner! not my favorite time of the year but something I have learned to deal with as after every winter there comes spring and thats my biggest hope and wish. let the sun shine, the flowers bloom and the skirts be short! so back to my wishlist for christmas. I have found many nice things that I wanna show you.
