ENG: An exciting Week is over, in which I spent most of time away from Hamburg. We started our travels on Wednesday, when we flew to Paris with Cartier, to take part in a perfume presentation. We were able to get a look at the incredibly inspiring headquarter of Cartier Fragrances and visit the Palais de Tokyo, to see the so called #OSNI 1 Cube, which is a small glass complex, made after the image of a dice. Only two people are allowed to step inside the cube at a time and, walking up a small spiral staircase, you walk straight into a cloud of the new Cartier “L`Envol”. This experience is really difficult to explain, but the presentation was just sensational. Then, last Friday, we went straight to Berlin to celebrate the new Mercedes Benz X-Class. We were picked up by a shuttle and, up until then, didn’t know anything about the location, since it was a secret event with guest-list-only access. The name of the show was #60minuteswithX and created an amazing atmosphere with live acts like German musicians such as Tim Bendzko, Kool Savas, and Sido. We spent the rest of the weekend with friends and family at home in Hamburg.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: This week we are actually not traveling as much as usually, but we have a list of meetings and events in Hamburg. Tomorrow for example, we have an event with Edited the Label, where I will obviously take you with me through my Instagram Stories. Apart from that I am really excited for next Saturday, because Juliane (Styleshiver) and I are hosting a Blogger-Flea Market along with and at Second-Ella in the Hamburg city centre. I am going to connect the official Facebook-Event here and would love to see and meet you from 10am-2pm!
New In: Last week, I got the controversial Balenciagatriple S Sneaker, that are currently sold out everywhere. I had a large number of questions and enquiries if I might want to sell them. Indeed, the Sneaker do look rather big and “massive”, but that is also just their character and charm. Right now I am still quiet torn whether I want to sell them or not, but will definitely keep you posted through my Instagram Stories. Furthermore, I got the perfect pinkknittedsweaterfromEdited, which I have already shown you here last week. Apart from that we had some rather quiet days, which has me even more excited of Saturday – since it will be the perfect opportunity to make some space in my closet. I will be relentless when it comes to finding pieces for the Blogger-Flea-Market ;-)Continue Reading…
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: Back in Hamburg I would now like to introduce my first autumn look being very causal and suitable for everyday life. The autumn in Northern Germany is meanwhile in full swing, therefore I’m no longer afraid of wearing long and warm coats. One of my current favorites is this plaid oversized coat from Edited, that I’ve also ordered in rose. From my point of view the coat has the perfect overall package of cut, pattern and length, in addition to that the price-performance ration is more than fair. As appropriate combination I’ve decided for a cozy hoodie and a vinyl pants in black as well as for my beloved Chanel sneaker, that I haven’t worn for a long time. The Prada velvet bag ensures a certain spot of color within this look, I wouldn’t like to miss it anymore.
What do you think about the look? Do you like autumn and a hopefully ‚Golden October‘ as well?
ENG: Some of you have maybe recognized via Instagram Stories, that I visited the new Aigner store in the inner city of Hamburg last weekend. For me Aigner Munich is a true traditional house in Germany, this is why I was especially pleased that Hamburg has now an own store closed to the Inner Alster in the „Poststraße 2-4“. As I’ve made some Instagram Stories last weekend, the interest concerning bags and straps at Aigner was huge.
On a regular base I’m getting requests for nice, fancy and top quality bag straps. This question can now finally be answered because Aigner has really some beautiful and colorful variations in its current assortment and furthermore the price-performance ratio is fair and adequate. Based on the fact that some straps are already sold out online, you can call your favorite store and instruct a delivery with your preferred strap and/or bag to your home address, no matter where you live – a great service from my point of view. During my store visit, I decided for the dark green „Lexi“ bag with a red stats strap, even at this week’s Milan Fashion Week I wore the bag for the Aigner Runway show. By the way – the new summer collection 2018 is really gorgeous – you can be curious. :-)
Do you also own an Aigner bag? I’m really keen on the current assortment and wish you a lot of fun with rummaging!
ENG: At the moment dotted patterns and midi dresses are „en vogue“, almost every well-known brand and designer count on these trends within their current collections, even Edited has such a garment in terms of the new „Ava“ dress. Directly after receiving I had to try and shoot it based on the fancy cut and great color pattern. For me this dress is also suitable for the upcoming autumn in combination with a jeans jacket as break in style or with rough boots at colder temperatures.
With regard to today’s look I decided to wear pointed-toe mules and the small Chloé Nile bag due to the perfectly tuned color match. Complemented with some jewelry and a sunglasses you have a modern and suitable for daily use outfit.
What do you think about this look? Enjoy your Sunday!
ENG: The summer is slowly coming to its end, days are getting shorter and almost everywhere in Hamburg you can find spiders. Based on the fact, that it will probably only be warm on single days until the end of summer, the right conclusion is to get a knitted sweater and boots out of the closet. For the first time in a long while we’ve decided to take the pictures in our old premises and to be honest it was a strange feeling and kind of a journey into the past, where it all began. Independent from that it was also a lot of fun and hopefully you like the results as well.
Concerning the actual look I’ve decided for my new Edited the Label knitted sweater and a filigree skirt in combination with the Balenciaga boots and the matching color Saint Laurent bag from my perspective. The sweater itself is fluffy and comfortable likewise, you can find this model and two further ones in different colors within the current collection. The quicker the better, autumn is probably coming faster as we actually have it in mind.
What do you think about this look? Do you like it?
ENG: Even if I’m already staying on Ibiza for a short blogger trip, I would like to introduce a new look from my home town Hamburg. Unfortunately the summer in Northern Germany is rather inconsistent this year with lots of rainy and grey days, so sometimes you’ve to be strong to avoid bad vibes.
The only thing that really helps is the decision for summery statement accessories, in this case happened it terms of my Gucci floral Marmont bag in green and the pink colored Prada mules. Both products cause a good mood and based on their colors and patterns it’s just fun wearing them at the moment. As suited add-on I have also decided for a white colored oversized blouse and a simple jeans for maintaining a certain outfit consistency. Followed quickly by the blue colored Ja-Jo Ray-Ban sunglasses and then there results a summery look being able to compete with the bad weather.
What do you think about this look? During the next days I can and will show you more summer content, promised. Stay tuned, it’s worth it! :-)
ENG: For the sake of variety I would like to introduce a street style look from Hamburg today. Even in recent past I predominantly wore summery dresses and kimonos, although I’m still a huge street style fan, when considering the diverse combining opportunities.
With regard to today’s look I have decided for an one shoulder blouse from Edited the Label in combination with a destroyed jeans and my beloved Dolce & Gabbana bag. I’m continually getting so much demands concerning this bag and could wear it every day. The blouse itself can be combined in a chick and casual way, especially the exposed shoulder is definitely an eye-catcher. While the jeans ensures the casual part, the Chanel Slingback heels form the perfect outfit rounding in an elegant manner.
By the way I’m also owning the one shoulder blouse in the blue/white striped version, that is also versatile and absolutely recommendable.
ENG: After the introduction of my new Edited the Label achievements within the latest „weekly focus„, I would now like to show you the first corresponding look with the striped oversized sweater, that is absolutely recommendable based on the flared sleeves and its casual cut. As suited combination I have made my decision for a destroyed jeans shorts, the velvet bag from Prada with the appropriate Fendi strap as well as my new Miu Miu slides with fur. For sure your opinions differ in regards of this foot wear but I am just loving the comfortable footbed and the silver colored round and angular rivets. During the summer months I can well imagine to wear the slides with a midi dress or even on colder days in combination with a cropped jeans as well as a thick oversized sweater.
ENG: As I have recently got the cooperation request from MAGNUM x MOSCHINO, I directly confirmed without hesitating for a second because even as a child I have decided most of the time for a Magnum ice and furthermore I am totally keen on the whole campaign. The international leading ice brand has lately launched two new flavors of the popular Magnum Double being famous for its cracking effect and the tasty sauces. Besides the new sort „Magnum Double Raspberry“, I have decided for the second version called „Magnum Double Coconut“, that is simply delicious and refreshing as well. Both flavors are combined under the official slogan: „Release the Beast“ – at Magnum Double you convert from a sweet tooth to a tiger.
In the course of the new flavors Magnum and Jeremy Scott, Creative Director at Moschino, have created in common the limited MAGNUM x MOSCHINO bag collection according to the motto „Dare to go Double“. The collection’s idea is to encourage people to show their wild side and to enjoy gourmet moments to the fullest without any doubts, what other people would think about it. The luxury „Capsule Collection“ is limited and consists of overall seven different designs, every bag is identified by a summery color and a fearless animal character in order to express courage and determination. Since the end of May the collection is available for a limited period on Moschino.com for the price of €250 (RRP). In addition to that everyone has the chance to win each week one of the bags at http://www.Magnumicecream.com until the 30th June – in this sense: Good luck!
I often show courage in connection with my outfits and the corresponding accessories, especially in Hamburg I am getting regularly glances of surprise concerning my shoes, bags and dresses, however I am wearing everything with conviction and love! In this case I have combined a destroyed jeans with my beloved mules being the perfect color match with the Moschino bag as well as a knitted oversized top.
