autumn look #41

A little bit of school girl and a little bit of rock could be the definition of this look. The dress for me was love at first sight when I saw it in the advertising movie. Have a look at the detail of the pleats!

autumn look #40

Highlight of this look is the embellished skirt by Gucci in different shades of red. I have styled it here with a leather shirt to emphasize the contrast. For the accessories I combine shoes and bag of the same color scheme. Oversized glass stone earrings by Balmain complete the look.

autumn look #39

Bright blue is definitely one of my favorite color choices for the autumn and this look is casual and with the emphasize of the materials such as mohair and leather. The boots by Isabel Marant give it a cool and urban touch.

autumn look #38

Shocking pink could be the name of this look! The dress in 80s style with opulent embroidery and stone embellishments is from Balmain. I have combined it here with golden accessories.

autumn look #37

Silver and ice blue is the color theme for this glam look. I have chosen a casual variation with blouse and jeans and an evening version with a sequined baby doll dress by Saint Laurent. I combine both looks with the ice blue studded shoes and bag from Valentino and a grey coat from Marc Jacobs.

autumn look #36

It's time for some autumn inspirations again and this look is an elegant evening combination in burgundy and earth shades which mixes luxury textures and patterns. The dress by Marc Jacobs is made of soft velvet. The simplicity of the dress gives space to emphasize the beautiful mosaics of shoes and bag. I also like the fur stole in this outfit because it gives the look some playfulness.

(N)Ostalgia - in fiction and reality

I always felt a bit disturbed by the cult status Berlin is enjoying, but I started to realize what its charm is. It's a mixture of past and presence, East and West which can be felt at every corner. Some people are fascinated by the golden 20s other dive into the east nostalgia or as we Germans say "Ostalgia". I would like to introduce you to places in reality and fiction where you can explore the East.

As we arrived in the early morning to Berlin, our first stop was the DDR museum and restaurant for a nice breakfast with Rotkäppchen sparkling wine, cheese, sausage and pickled vegetables. Rotkäppchen Sekt is the "champagne" of the East and the name means "little red riding hood" just like in the fairy tale. Products from the East had their difficulties shortly after the reunification, but they are conquering also the West by now. And of course the sandman and men in the traffic light are also cult by now.

I have two movies for you, which bring you closer to the topic:

Berlin Style

As you can see, the autumn has also reached Berlin. But honestly I like the autumn, not just because my birthday is in October, but also because of the changing colors and the cosy materials.


   



























And here is my outfit to explore the city jungle: the sweater with the tiger head and the bag black and grey leo print were love on first sight from Boss Orange in Berlin. The leather jacket and shoes in biker style are my faithful autumn acquaintances.

off to new adventures

A new month and new adventures! I am just back from a short trip to Berlin and will tell you soon more about it! But do you recognize "my" new car? 


It's an old Trabi from the GDR-museum. Nowadays it has a kind of cult status and you can even rent it for a safari through the jungle of Berlin. 
Though I saw my first real trabi when the boyfriend of one of my school mates bought it couple of years after the reunion. We were always a bit suspicious if it will carry us home, because of the typical sound it makes. 
Renn-ten-ten. Actually my Vespa does quite the same sound...
