ENG: I’ve spent most of last week in Munich, because I visited the press days of LOEWS PR, V. Communication and Haebmau. I was able to spend the last two nights of my exciting visit in the new Roomers Hotel, which is just impressive in regards to its interior and hospitality. In the hotel, the asian restaurant “IZAKAYA” invited me and a couple of friends to dinner and provided us with a culinary and also otherwise fantastic night. So if any of you are going to be in Munich any time soon, I can only recommend this hotel. On Thursday I went to the Westing Pop-Up Store, which is on Brienner Street 12, very close to the Munich town center. Some of you probably know that we have been working with Westwing for quite some time and are great fans of the high-quality Interior Shop. Because we are so close with the Westwing-Team, we came together and developed the discount code “WWaylin”, which can be used in the Pop-Up store in Munich until the 16th of November 2017. I was extremely happy with the store and the deal you can get; you can shop your preferred products with an iPad in store with a 20% discount – so you can mix and match your favorite items without any restrictions. Have fun shopping!
Favorites of the week:
To Do: Our next stop for this week is a night in Düsseldorf on Thursday, before we visit our old home Cologne afterwards. We connect Cologne with an incredibly great time in University, where we had lovely moments and were able to make great friends. It will be a private visit this time, because a friend invited us to his wedding – which is something of great importance to us at the moment as well. :-) In addition to that, we were given the new Audi Q5 to test within the next weeks and I am – of course – incredibly excited for the car. I’ve been a great fan of the Q5 for some time now and finally able to drive and test it myself; it definitely has enough space for some offspring.
ENG: Once again I’m delayed with a new trend report, this time due to the fact that I’ve been in Munich this week for the fashion press days. More information about my time, meetings and experiences in Munich is going to be part of tomorrow’s ‚weekly focus‘. Today’s focus is completely on the good old belt bags, for me an it-piece this season after the first trend of this bag variation in the 90’s.
My first model of such a belt bag was the dark red Prada being able to be used in three different wearing options based on its functionality. You can choose between the elegant clutch, a casual shoulder bag with a gold colored strap or even the cool and hip belt bag. At the moment I’m still looking for a nice vintage model from Chanel – let’s look and see, if it works in the near future. Below you can find a selection of different belt bags, I hope you can find your own favorite, especially when thinking about the upcoming Christmas time. :-)
ENG: A busy and wonderful week including three amazing days in Berlin is over. The start of our Berlin trip was the launch event of the ERDEM x H&M Collection, followed by the #JusteUnClou Party by Carier. Both events were well organised and the trip was perfected by our stay in the beautiful Hotel Zoo. I hope that you got some good impressions through my IG-Stories and got a good grasp of the new H&M Designer collection. We went back home to Hamburg on Friday, were our French Bulldog was awaiting us already. Then on Saturday, a bunch of us went to see a kickboxing fight of a good friend of ours; I haven’t been to a sporting event like that before and I have to admit that I was more than impressed about the sport itself and the respectful attitude of the fighters.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: I will be leaving for Munich tomorrow, to attend the Munich-Press days and two store events. In more detail, it’s about a visit to the Westwing-Pop-Up Store on Thursday, followed by a Peuterey and Lodenfrey Event on Friday. I will tell you what exactly that is about on Instagram :-) I am definitely very excited for the Munich trip, interesting conversations and the other girls. It’ll definitely be a busy and exciting week!
New In: I decided to wear this beautiful Self-Portrait dress for the Cartier Party, since it was a “Black Tie” Event, and I was also able to get one of the really popular Christian Dior Textile Bracelets in Berlin. In addition to that, Pandora’s Christmas collection arrived, which isn’t only absolutely recommendable by the looks of things, but also from its quality and in my eyes a perfect gift idea for Christmas. I would like to show you my personal favorites in form of a Widget below; I also talked about the new collection in my Instagram-Story today.
ENG: Brrr… at the moment it’s pretty cold in whole Germany. I’m a huge fan of the cold and dark season in this sense, as there are lots of opportunities to wear thick coats and jackets as the perfect foundation for great outfit combinations. This year faux fur is kind of a must-have for me, you can find lots of different models in diverse shapes and designs. One of my personal favorites is the model from & Other Stories based on its great processing, the design of the pattern as well as the modern cut. In general the quality of faux fur jackets and coats is a really good one from my point of view, therefore I would now like to introduce a selection of my personal favorites. It’s a wide range of different types, so hopefully everyone of you is able to find her/his own favorite. I’m very excited about your feedback and wish you a lot of fun with the following pieces.
ENG: A rather relaxed but very productive week is now behind us. We were in Hamburg all week and therefore able to hold a number of meetings and events in the area, which again can lead to exciting new projects in the upcoming weeks. Last week’s highlight definitely was the blogger-flea-market at Secondella in Hamburg’s town center last Saturday. I was so excited about how many people came out and how positive the feedback was; it’s always nice to meet people personally and be able to have a conversation and engage with everyone. So thank you again everyone for coming out :-) For those of you that weren’t able to come out this time; I have prepared everything for next time already and I am certain, that there will be another blogger-flea-market soon.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: We will be traveling again this week, since we have two events in Berlin. First of all, I will be attending the big Erdem x H&M Collection launch at H&M on Wednesday night, which I am really excited for. Then on Thursday, we have been invited to celebrate Cartier’s new collection “Juste un Clou”. I personally think that the pieces of this collection are some of the most beautiful Cartier pieces, which is why my excitement for the event is rather big; as usual, I am going to take you with me to Berlin via my Instagram-Stories. Next weekend, we will be back in Hamburg to support a friend during his kickboxing fight.
New In: I can finally call the Max Mara Teddy-Coat MY OWN. I have been eyeing this coat for absolutely ages; at he presentation of the coat during the Milan Fashion Week in February I had already fallen in love with it, which makes me even happier that I am perfectly prepared for the upcoming cold days of fall. I was able to pick out a pair of Fendi slippers at Net-A-Porter, too, that are unbelievably stylish. I have already styled one specific idea with them too, that you will be able to see in my Instagram-Story today. Adding to that I have ordered a relaxed velvet sweatpants from adidas. Additionally we are waiting for a biiiiiiig Westwing Order with wonderful products that include a velvet-armchair and a golden ceiling lamp. I am going to tell you soon what exactly we are expecting and why we are expecting the delivery via Instagram :-)
ENG: Autumn has finally arrived in Germany and many leaves have already changed their colors in red and orange. In order to get the perfect fit with the current nature, there is one special fashion rule this year – RED! For a long while I’m a huge fan of this color and therefore different, red colored pieces belong to my current wardrobe and clothing style like the Gucci loafer, a Dolce & Gabbana bag or even a vinyl pants. For me shades of red are able to add that certain something within an outfit, from this purpose there is a clear rule: Have the courage to choose conspicuous red, no matter if it’s a coat, dress, sweater, bag or even a pair of shoes. Below you can find a selection of my current favorites and I hope, that you can find your own it-pieces.
What do you think about the trend color ‚red‘? Have fun with the following items and enjoy your weekend!
ENG: Shame on me – my weekly routine is delayed, so only today I’m able to introduce a new trend report. Based on our stays in Paris and Berlin during the last days, there was simply not enough time to publish one of my favorite autumn/winter trends this season: oversized knit sweater. With regard to the bad weather conditions in Germany with a lot of rain and leaves in the street, probably everyone has a daily increasing requirement for warm and comfortable clothing. Therefore today everything revolves around big knit sweater being a fixed part within my wardrobe these days. For me such sweater can be worn in so many different ways, they combine style and protection against cold temperatures. Based on your regular interest on Instagram in my own models, I’ve made a selection of my personal favorites below.
Have fun and enjoy the rest of your hopefully relaxed Sunday!
ENG: A new week is over and it feels like time is permanently running, probably you know this feeling in a same manner. We spent last week to a great extent in Hamburg with not only several meetings and accounting themes but also in terms of quality time with friends for a long time. In addition to that I was part of the Mango #Committed event last Thursday, the new collection is officially available from today on. For me there are really some nice pieces within the new collection and I’m even happier, that I could already get some items, you can find more about the particular pieces within the ‚New In‘ section. On Friday we moved on to Bremen for visiting the ‚Ischa Freimaak‘ with friends, the biggest public festival in Northern Germany. The last mentionable event last week was the launch of the new and beautiful hair salon of my beloved friend Kathleen, the official salon name is ‚Kathleen Hairdesign‘ and it’s located in Hamburg. :-)
Favorites of the week:
To Do: Today my boyfriend and me were the first consumer at Kathleen’s new hair salon, some insights and first results are part of my Instagram Stories today. This Wednesday we’re traveling to one of my most preferred cities worldwide. Can you imagine, which one I mean? You’re right… it’s PARIS. We will stay two nights in this amazing city with Cartier Fragrances, via Instagram Stories I will take you with me to this exciting trip. We expect a varied and fascinating framework program as the contemporary art week takes also place this week in Paris.
New In: As already mentioned above, I’ve got a lovely piece from the new Mango #Committed collection in terms of this amazing dress. For the launch event itself, I was allowed to choose a whole Mango outfit and I decided not only for the dotted dress but also for an oversized cashmere sweater and black colored boots. In addition to that I’ve found a new pair of boots from the ECCO shape collection, the shoes combine a high comfort and great style for creating sophisticated looks. I decided for the combination with a ‚fake fur‘ coat and a simple, black colored jeans, that is also part of my Instagram feed from last week. Last but not least I’m now the proud owner of the small ‚Chanel Gabrielle‚ bag in black. You know my preference for bags in general but to be honest until now I didn’t have a simple model in black, I’m still very happy with my decision because the bag can be worn cross body and as one shoulder bag based the two colored (gold and silver) and long strap.
ENG: Hello from Hamburg, my current residence and happy place since a few days. After our return from Paris last Monday, we realized a big video production in out flat with Fashionette.de, an online shop for designer handbags. Of course I’m really excited about the result and already this week the first part will be launched online. I will let you know as soon as an outcome is visible. ;-)
As I’ve already mentioned within my „teddy coat“ trend report, I flew to Verona for the first time last Friday. The reason for this one-night trip was the sensational Intimissimi On Ice Show, hosted in the open air „Arena di Verona“. The costumes this year were designed by the Italian star blogger Chiara Ferragni. A really fantastic spectacle and a great atmosphere, even Andrea Bocelli with his phenomenal voice had a live performance during the event. After my return from Italy, I spent last weekend very laid-back at home.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: This week there are several meetings and press days, in addition to that Mango will be hosting a bigger event in the inner city of Hamburg this Thursday and of course I will take you with me on this day via Instagram Stories. On Saturday my beloved Kathleen from „Kathleen Hairdesign“ is going to celebrate a new chapter of her professional career in regards of an own hair salon. As a true hair expert, I can warmly recommend her in questions of the ideal cut, hair extensions or glossing tips, furthermore I’m pretty happy to be her first „customer“ next Monday – juhuuu!
Even concerning our wedding next year, we got finally the commitment for our dream location on Majorca. After two months of waiting, we’re absolutely happy about the confirmation because now we can go with things like „save-the-date“, registry, wedding dress etc. :-)
New In: Based on the cold temperatures here in Hamburg, I couldn’t resist anymore and had to buy the Fake-Fur coat from & Other Stories. Via Instagram I’ve already announced last week, that PANDORA has launched its exclusive Disney collection, that is commercially available since 5th October 2017. My very own disney charm from the collection includes a Minnie Mouse, a heart and a Minnie symbol. Should you be Disney and PANDORA fans as well, you can find lots of nice and lovely products online and stationary, there are also DIY products within the Disney collection. It’s definitely worth it.
ENG: After one month of Fashion Weeks I would now like to go back to my old routines and this means it’s time for a new „trend report“. Based on your positive feedback on such reports in the past, I would like to continue this rubric with a one-day delay, from next week on you can expect every Friday a blog post about current and hip „it pieces“.
The delay is due to the fact, that I was invited from Intimissimi for a special event in Verona yesterday. I visited the legendary and impressive ice show last night and was also part of the new autumn/winter collection launch. More details about this journey and yesterday’s show will follow within the new „weekly focus“ on Monday. With regard to the cold temperatures in Germany as well as the cool conditions during the ice show, I decided to wear a teddy coat, that is also the starting point and centre for today’s trend report. This season such coats belong in every women’s wardrobe from my point of view. They combine comfort and style like no other coats and even my first picture on Instagram with a Teddy coat generated so much positive feedback. Hereinafter you can find my current favorites and I hope, that you share my enthusiasm for this „trend“. Have fun with the following pieces, I’m sure, that there’s something for everyone.
Which one is your favorite teddy coat? Even in relation to future trend reports, you can gladly leave a feedback, which items or „it pieces“ you would like to see here on the blog. Enjoy your weekend! Continue Reading…
