ENG: With every week we are slowly getting closer to spring. Even Though the last couple of days have been absolutely joyous in terms of sunshine, it is still extremely cold and windy here. We have spent the entire last week in Hamburg, since we had two interesting events here on Wednesday and Thursday. One of them was the presentation of the PANDORA Shine-Collection, which definitely is one of my favorite jewellry collections based on their optics and quality. In addition to that we were in the Hamburg Store of italian brand ‘Fabiana Filippi’, which is mostly known for exclusive knitted products, modern designs and high-quality fabrics on Thursday night. Other than that we are still in the process of furthering our wedding preparations and getting our apartments ready for spring. I can’t wait to leave the house in dresses and spend my free time on our balcony, but I guess most of us feel this way. :-)
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: We will be in Amsterdam for an event by the wonderful lingerie brand Marie Jo on Wednesday night. I am especially excited for the stay, because the bloggers like Lena and Liberta wil be there as well and we will hopefully have a great and exciting time. From Thursday on we have a number of events in Hamburg, where I will of course take you via my Instagram Stories. In addition to that we are currently planning a trip South, since we haven’t been in the sun in what feels like ages and we are longing for some warmer days. I would love to just produce ‘summerly content’ on Instagram 24/7 and get your opinion on dresses and summer trends. About a year ago we went on a trip to the Maldives – but who knows where our planning will take us this year. The Maldives are definitely worth a trip. ;-)
New In: Since the sun has been back in Hamburg a couple of times now, which has me planning my balcony a lot! I found some wonderful products on Westwing and found a little Sofa over the last weekend that I really liked. You should definitely take a look at westwingnow.de, where you can find the new outdoor line since the past weekend. We have also ordered a little bench for our hallway, which I am incredibly excited for already, too. Since so many of you asked about my beige Fabiana Filippi dress, I have linked it in light blue and cream down below. The looks as well as the quality of it are absolutely recommendable – I definitely love it!
ENG: I have spent most of last week in Hamburg meeting friends, which is always especially nice and pleasant after the Fashion Weeks. Of course I am thankful to be able to travel and for all the amazing experiences along the way, but the most beautiful moments are created from time spent with friends. Since I am finally back on track with my health and have overcome the annoying cold, the blog will be a bit more busy in the near future too, and I have also prepared a ‘Best Of’ post with my looks from Paris, which I really want to share with you this week. I have also gone through my closet with the end of the Fashion Weeks and picked some high quality pieces for the Designersale at the end of the month. You can easily sign up for the newsletter on the landing page of my blog and have the chance to get your hands on some exciting designer pieces.
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: I will spend this entire week in Hamburg, since two important events are on the schedule: I have an important meeting this afternoon in regards to our wedding this summer, and then on Wednesday PANDORA will launch their new collection in Hamburg. I am not allowed to give you any insights at the moment, but if you take a quick look at my Instagram profile you can find a Teaser-Post with some pieces of the collection that are absolutely dreamy. Other than that the wedding planning takes up much of our time, even though one of the most important decisions has already been made: I have found my wedding dress and am just so HAPPY that it all worked out. I will promise to show you many many photos on the blog and on my Instagram in the summer, but I have to ask for your patience until then. :-) To be completely honest, it just feels crazy that I will officially be married in about four months. I am incredibly excited for the moment already and am getting emotional just thinking about the wedding. To be a little tanned for the wedding we are currently planning a holiday in Dubai and/or Abu Dhabi during the spring. Since we have never been in either of the two places we are unsure how to best plan the trip. Do you have any tips or recommendations that we should definitely include?
ENG: My dears, unfortunately it has been rather quiet on the blog lately, which is mostly due to my never-ending cold and the two Fashion Weeks in Milan and Paris. Some of you may also be ill at the moment, but let’s all together hope for spring to show up soon! Anyway, we are back in Hamburg and have loads of work to catch up on, mostly surrounding last week’s happenings. We have spent the last week in beautiful Paris with H&M, where – amongst other things – the new Studio Collection show took place. Have you seen the collection yet? I am already a great fan of the tops and loose dresses, which is also part of my momentarily fixed Instagram story with the title ‘WIN H&M’. Club members can partake in the raffle of my outfit until Sunday, you can find more information on this in my IG story. Paris is always worth a visit, you can take beautiful pictures on pretty much any corner and the city has so much to offer. Besides a number of shows and events we also took some time to shoot and I will upload a blogpost with my favorite Paris outfits soon. :-)
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: We have been back from Paris since Tuesday night and picked up Summer from her vacation with my parents first thing yesterday. Besides our daily business we still have a lot to plan and organise for our wedding as well, for which I get lots of support from my bridesmaid Laura. If I will be back on track healthwise within the next couple of days, we have planned one or another visit at Aspira, to get my body wedding-ready. Some of you may know the lifestyle clubs, which are currently located in Hamburg, Hannover and now also in Berlin. Aspira doesn’t only offer a great workout space, but is also the perfect location for a relaxed SPA day.
New In: In collaboration with Monnier Frères I was able to choose three wonderful Burberry products and I am still absolutely in love with all of them. In detail it is about this special, colorful bag, a 3 meter scarf as well as the famous “make-up bag”, which was also shown at the runway show and is currently being hyped. I was also able to get the new Louis Vuitton Archlight Sneaker in Paris, which has been on my wishlist ever since the show in October. Despite my cold I am really, really happy about my new goodies.
ENG: We are back from Milan and I am in bed with a huge cold, which is why this ‘weekly focus’ is a day late, too. I am still trying to recover as quickly as possible, because we are off to France for Paris Fashion Week tomorrow already. Even though we weren’t very lucky with the weather in Milan, we still had a great and inspirational time. My personal favorite this season definitely was attending the Fendi Show, which was a great excitement and honor for me as a fan. The new winter collection will be AMAZING, there are some really cool and wearable pieces for next season. If you want to get a personal insight of the show, definitely take a look at my fixated Instagram Story of Milan Fashion Week (#MFW). Besides the Fendi Show we also had presentations from brands such as Jimmy Choo, Furla, Coccinelle and Dodo Bar Or on our agenda. Milan is and will always be worth a trip, and especially during Fashion Week it has a very special flair. :-)
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: We are going to Paris for a joint trip with H&M tomorrow, where the new H&M Studio Show will be shown. I am really excited for the H&M House and the show and will of course take you on this trip during the next couple of days through my Instagram Stories. Besides the H&M Studio Show we also have a number of presentations and events to attend in Paris, and I am especially excited for my Cartier Rendezvous. Since I get asked about my jewelry all the time, I have fixated some of the pieces on my Instagram Story with the title #CARTIERLOVE. Please take a look, they are really high quality and timeless pieces of jewelry, that are practically perfect for any occasion. In addition to that we have an exciting newsletter waiting for you this week, which an exciting designer sale; this time including: Louis Vuitton, Christopher Kane and an Aigner bag as well as a pair of Prada sandals.
Register now at the landing page of my blog and you won’t miss an extra-load of ‘Aylin König’. ;-)
New In: For the first time in a while some pieces by Edited the Label moved in with me. This time it’s two identically striped blouses in red and blue as well as a red striped Off-Shoulder blouse. I also got a spontaneous inquiry by the Italian brand Giuseppe Zanotti in Milan and was able to try this new slip-on sneaker, which I found incredibly comfortable and stylish straight away. I also got my beloved Balenciaga Triple S Sneaker in the newest colour combination of pink-black-white through Luisaviaroma and I am already excited to take them out in Paris. Last but not least I could also find this transparent Valentino bag and I’m totally in love with it, especially during the Spring and Summer months the bag will probably fit with every kind of outfit.
ENG: The ‘weekly focus’ of last week is here a day late, because the last couple of days were unbelievably eventful. We started off the week by flying to Mallorca for three nights on Monday, to plan more details of our wedding. We enjoyed tastings of the dinner and the wedding cake and met with our wedding planner (Mallorca_Boutique_Weddings) and florist (Florist_mallorca_Brigitta) and are so incredibly excited for our big day already. It’s unbelievable that it is only 4,5 more month until the big day, and I am slowly getting more and more nervous. We then took a mini-trip to the Berlinale on Friday, to celebrate the #TheDifferenceSheMakes campaign by Nespresso. We published an article about the topic on Sunday as well, which you can read again here. We then took the car from Berlin to Cologne, where we met up with our wonderful photographer for our wedding, (Tali__Photography) (We are already so excited for the magical photos) and for me to attend another fitting of a potential wedding dress.
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: The calm before the storm – From tomorrow until Sunday we will be attending Milan Fashion Week and I am so excited already! I am not only looking forward to all the lovely and well-known faces, but also the great events and shows and the Italian feeling! Deep down I am truly Italian and could eat Pizza and Pasta 24/7 and drink the best coffee! I will of course take you on the journey and I will try to give you as many insights as possible, especially since I will be attending the show of one of my favorite high-fashion brands – JOYFUL ANTICIPATION!
ENG: Hola from Palma de Mallorca, where we have been since yesterday. Unfortunately I had to cancel New York Fashion Week this season, but it is for a good reason, as we are trying to forward our wedding plans. Apart from the decoration of the wedding location and we are also looking at some fitting accommodations, and we are especially excited for our practice dinner with our caterer and putting together our wedding cake. We definitely have some interesting days ahead, especially because the wedding is coming closer and closer. We have spent most of last week in Hamburg, and my personal highlight was the fitting at the Galia Lahav Boutique, where I looked at a number of potential wedding dresses. I fell in love with several dresses straight away, and am unsure now which form is best for me. I have put some insights in the boutique on my Instagram-Story highlights and I can really only recommend the Galia Lahav dresses. In 4 ½ months the big day is here and time is racing, but the excitement for our summer wedding continues to rise.
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: We will be on the island until Thursday, to have the classic tasting for both the dinner and the cake and decide the decoration for the wedding. Afterwards we go back to Hamburg to unpack and then pack again, just to go to an event for Nespresso in cooperation with Vogue for the Berlinale on Friday. From here we go straight back to Cologne, because I have a fitting for another potential wedding dress. I hope that I can make the final decision for my dress after this weekend, and it will be an incredibly difficult decision, but I guess all soon-to-be brides feel the same way. Sunday we are going straight to London Fashion Week, where we have a number of fascinating shows and presentations waiting for us. After we have been to London a number of times last year we have become great fans of the city, and I am really excited to gain some new insights and impressions during Fashion Week – and, als always, I take you on the journey with me via my Instagram Stories.
ENG: A turbulent week with ups and downs is over now. Sometimes life throws things at you where values like family and sticking together become more apparent than ever. That is why I had to take a spontaneous trip to Turkey with my dad, and stayed with close friends and family for a while. It was a very emotional week but also exciting, because I flew from Izmir to Copenhagen on Wednesday, to take part in shows and events in line of Fashion Week. Even though my stay in Copenhagen was very short, I am im love with the Scandinavian style and fashion. I have put together my own looks for CHFW in a blog post yesterday and also linked it to the products. Then, from Copenhagen I went to Berlin and then Leipzig on Friday, where the exclusive Vetements x DHL collection was presented. I hope that you got some insights via IG-Stories from Copenhagen and Leipzig, as it was such an overall emotional and exciting week for me.
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: This week everything is under the motto “The calm before the storm”. Some things in Hamburg need to be taken care of before we are off to the airport next week. I don’t want to tell you too much already, but we have trips to Mallorca, Berlin, Cologne and London on the list, which isn’t only exciting for the blog, but also for our wedding. I will of course take you on the journey via my IG-Stories, as the days will definitely be promising. Friday night we have a “Pre-Valentine’s” Event at the Intissimi Store in hamburg, which I am really excited for already, too. Also, I have been getting many messages in regards to my wedding lately; are you guys really that interested in the topic? And are there specific areas in line with my wedding that you are especially interested in?
New In: Howdy Ho!!! This spring definitely won’t be able to dodge the “Western Style”, as Cowboy Boots and hats are totally trendy in the next couple of months. I already ordered these awesome Cowboy-Boots from Isabel Marant at the MyTheresa Sale, which I could easily wear every day. Either with a pair of jeans or a white dress, the boots make every look better. On top of that I ordered a small, cute Fendi Triplette bag, which is perfect for the warmer days. The new Edited collection is also available as of now, and I immediately ordered this white dress, the red-and-white striped shirt, a white blouse and a pair of mom jeans.
ENG: I have spent almost all of last week in Hamburg, mostly to plan my next trips and events. Especially now in February the European Fashion Weeks are on the list as well as more wedding planning, but of course I am incredibly excited for this thrilling time. By the way: Tomorrow is the day: I will send out my first official newsletter with the exclusive Desiger-Sale. Subscribe to it today through the button on the landing page of my blog, to have the chance of getting one if the handpicked designer pieces.
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: I have been in Izmir since Saturday for family related reasons, but I will be leaving to make my way to Copenhagen tomorrow already. I will be in Copenhagen for the first time and am really excited for the Scandinavian labels and shows such as “By Malene Birger” or “Baum & Pferdgarten”. On Thursday night I will the be off to Berlin, to make my way to Leipzig on Friday. We will be at a joint event of DHL and Vetements at the DHL Hub of Leipzig Airport, to get a first impression of the Vetements x DHL collection and of course my excitement is huge, ever since I got the collaboration proposal a couple of weeks ago. I especially love the extravagant cuts, which is why I can’t wait for the new, and therefore second DHL-Collection. :-)
New In: The last week went a little overboard because of the upcoming Fashion Weeks. Two pairs of Manolo Blahnik heels moved in with me in line with a cooperation with LUISAVIAROMA, of which especially the red Mules stole my heart. At first sight they might seem a little girly, but in combination with a casual set of jeans they can look really stylish and cool. Just like the popular Manolos “Hangisi”, which I ordered in a bright pink – so spring can please hurry up now. Apart from that I rewarded myself with a simple Balenciaga Shirt, which I can imagine perfectly in combination with the red Mules. You might have already seen my Balenciaga Speed Runner on Instagram, which i got in dark blue?! Overall last week definitely wasn’t the norm – but I still love every piece! :-)
ENG: An eventful week is just behind us now, full of exciting experiences, many events, shows and a lot of hustle and bustle. All three of us went to the capital from Monday to Friday, where we were allowed to stay in the beautiful Hotel de Rome. The hotel is the perfect address during Fashion Week, because many events are in walking distance and the service is just amazing. We were mostly out and about with our beauty partner Catrice Cosmetics, who is also the main sponsor or the Berlin Salon and was responsible for the make-up there, too. The Berlin Salon definitely separates itself from other events with shoes and presentations from amazing designers such as William Fan, Odeeh, Perret Shaad or even Marina Hoermanseder. In addition to that we also had a group presentation at the beginning of Fashion Week again, where the participating partners were able to show parts of their collections beforehand. Catrice Cosmetics were the main sponsor of this event as well, which is why they were responsible for the makeup here, too. I hope that you got loads of impressions and backstage-insights through my Instagram-Stories already!
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: The new week is starting out quietly, with lots of wedding-topics on our agenda, as well as planning the international Fashion Weeks. Other than that, we will be busy adding the finishing touches to a video project, in which we put together a number of typical Fashion Week moments for you. I will keep you posted and provide more updates to you during the week. :-) Other than that, the wedding planning costs us both time and nerves – it’s really incredible how many decisions have to be made and details determined, and that even though we do have a wedding planner already! Are you interested in the topic ‘wedding’ and would like to be kept up-to-date on this?
New In: I definitely sinned the last week and ordered incredible Balenciaga Heels that were on sale, and in addition to that, the Balenciaga Speed Sneaker in blue will arrive at my door today. I still have no idea why sneakers in blue just spoke to me as much, but I already have a combination of a white summer dress and blue jeans underneath that in mind. Our pink Fluente Sofa also has been added too, and makes a perfect and comfortable seating area with a matching armchair.
ENG: Greetings from cold Berlin! I hope you all had a great week so far – and apologies for this ‘weekly focus’ being so late. Again, Berlin Fashion Week is full of exciting collaborations and appointments, which is why I just wasn’t able to get back to you any earlier. Fashion Week is always a great opportunity to get inspiration for new outfits, of which I will show you a few within the next couple of days on my Instagram account. :-)
Favorites of the Week:
To Do: Of course last week mainly consisted of preparing for Berlin, and luckily we were also able to get a lot done for our wedding, too. Naturally, we still have a lot to do in the next few days, and we are in Berlin until Friday with the whole team. As I mentioned last week, we aren’t only working on a number of photo projects, but also on a film production, to give you the chance to gain even more insights into my everyday at Fashion Week. I am incredibly excited to show you this project soon, but until then I’m not able to tell you much more. In collaboration with Catrice and the ‘Berliner Salon’ we are taking part in a number of different fashion shows and presentations, where, amongst others, also the collections by Dawid Tomaszewski and William Fan will be shown. In line with the partnership we are staying in the beautiful ‘Hotel de Rome’ right at the Opera in Berlin, which I can only recommend for a stay in Berlin in regards to location and service. As I have mentioned a couple of times in the past, we are offering a monthly NEWSLETTER starting at the end of January, in which we will put together the highlights of the past month and give you even more exclusive insights and the chance to partake in a designer sale. You can sign up for the newsletter at the home page of my blog.
New In: Just in time for Fashion Week I shopped a couple of pieces at H&M trend: Last week two knitted jumpers moved in with me, one of them black and the other one beige. With the perfect Fashion Week timing I was able to shoot a look with it straight away too, which I will show you within the next days. In addition to that I also ordered a blue/white/red skirt at H&M trend in a maritime look, which I will show you soon on my Instagram account. I am especially excited about my delivery from LUISAVIAROMA, which was sent to Berlin straight away. This contains a Fendi bag, a white Valentino Rock-Stud bag, a single Balenciaga sweater, as well as a pair of sunglasses by Linda Farrow. You can be excited, and I will keep you up to date on my Instagram account and via IG stories.
