ENG: I have been back in Hamburg for a couple of days now and look back at the time of Paris Fashion Week with rather mixed feelings. Of course Paris is an amazing city with unbelievably many sights and shopping areas that let the heart of any woman skip a beat, but the city has also not been spared of the cold, which created some frosty moments during our shoots!
Nevertheless I’d like to give you an overview of the looks that I wore during Paris Fashion Week. To me fashion is a passion that I consume every day and that I like to share with my surroundings, whether in the snow or during times of heat. Especially lately I received so many private messages with lovely comments on Instagram, that really touched me and make me incredibly happy. I am always so excited to see that my passion for fashion and lifestyle motivates and even inspires others. But let’s get to the looks of Paris Fashion Week, which I have put together for you in the following. I hope you have fun looking through them and please leave your feedback on your favorite look in a comment! Continue Reading…
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: 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: Now we’re already one week back in Germany with the exception of the event in Verona, and I’m still looking back to the last September week in Paris with pleasure. Even if I’m always happy to come home after a journey, we had really some nice days and exciting moments in the French capital. Not only during Fashion Week, even in general Paris belongs to my favorite cities and most popular destinations, that I’ve seen until now.
For this reason I would like to introduce my preferred looks from that time, similar to the articles of the previous Fashion Weeks. We spent one week in Paris and tried to shoot as much as possible outfits for you, some of them are already posted on Instagram. Should you have questions concerning single pieces, you can gladly leave your feedback below. In this sense:
ENG: After more than 10hours of sleeping I can finally write today’s „weekly focus“ from our own flat in Hamburg. I’m very grateful for the last Fashion Week month but now I’m more than happy to be back at home. We had great conversations, met new and lovely people and gathered so much positive experiences.
Last week started with a day in Disneyland because Pandora invited several blogger to celebrate the Disney collection, that will be available from the 5th October on. From here we moved on to Paris with L’Oréal in order to test some new products, to visit the laboratory as well as to be part of events in regards of the Fashion Week. My personal highlights were definitely the Balmain party and the Sonja Rykiel Show. The big final of our common journey was the L’Oréal Fashion Show at the Champs-Élysées on Sunday. It was a secret project with designer like Balmain, Sonja Rykiel, Off White or Isabel Markant. A really huge spectacle with models like Doutzen Kroes, Stefanie Giesinger, Lena Meyer Landrut or Irina Shayk.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: Today our French Bulldog is coming back from a family holiday and as you can imagine we’re so looking forward to it. Tomorrow is a very special day because a production team of the online shop Fashionette is going to produce a small home story, as soon as there will be the first results, I will let you know. :-) On Friday I’m going to fly to Verona for being part of the legendary Intimissimi ice show, the motto this year: „A Legend of Beauty“! I’m already so excited and will definitely take you with me Friday evening.
New In: In Milan I couldn’t resist anymore, I just had to buy my new Gucci sneaker in the color combination red and blue. For some time I was so keen on this model and since the purchase I’m wearing them almost every day. In addition to that I’ve ordered some lovely pieces at Edited: a red colored vinyl skirt, a black colored vinyl pants as well as an oversized coat in rose. Last but not least I’ve finally got the perfect „ear cuff“, Loren Stewart sent me an amazing model of its limited Net-A-Porter collection. A very eventful but also thankful week.
ENG: Today I would like to introduce my second look from Paris being more sportive and casual than those ones for designer shows or exclusive events. Generally during the Fashion Weeks, I am not necessarily wear the most comfortable shoes, so that this time I was pretty happy about the delivery of the new Air Max Jewell from Nike in black. This easy and functional sneaker is not only a benefit for the feet but also a very stylish foundation for several kinds of outfit combinations for a whole range of occasions from my point of view. Look yourselves and find your favorite Air Max at nike.com.
I have decided for the sneaker combination with a black vinyl trousers and a casual sweater from Dolce & Gabbana. The colorful highlight is the conspicuous red bag, that is also a product from D&G and likewise the perfect rounding of this unconstrained look. For me this outfit is a lovely mix of sportive accents, paired with stylish fashion highlights and therefore absolutely suited to daily use.
After wearing the Nike Air Max Jewell, I have acquired a taste once again for this and further Sneaker as the perfect footwork
Do you like the look and mix of the different styles?
ENG: I am back from Paris and the Fashion Week marathon, in fairness I am looking forward to the next weeks in Hamburg because I can now better handle and focus on our upcoming move. Not only in Paris, but also in Milan and London before, I was allowed to realize inspiring shows, interesting events as well as exciting meetings. Even if it was my first stay in London this year, Paris is and remains my favorite concerning fashion and lifestyle. The selection of hip labels is huge there, even the dress style of many Parisian if very inspiring and influential. The end of my stay consisted of a common VOGUE film shooting with Lena, the topic of the four-part film series is „Being a blogger“ and I am already pretty excited about the results.
Favorites of the week:
To Do: This week I have to spent a lot of time at the desk in order to work on administrative issues as well as for further planning our move. The pleasant anticipation to our new flat is growing on a daily base but until the final moving it is still a long way. In general I am looking forward to the next weeks in Hamburg because I can spend more time with my cute French bulldog because in the end there is no place like home. :-)
ENG: Haaahhh, it would be silly to think, if I would not have a further, suited look from Paris for you in order to counter the bad weather at the moment. In fact I have some looks from this time in reserve, that I would like to show you soon on the blog. :-)
Today I would like to introduce a very uncomplicated but also stylish look. I am wearing a plaid oversized blouse with a casual Levi’s jeans, a beige colored wool coat as well as the nude Aquazzura heels with the matching color Fendi Peekabo bag. Based on my current stay in Berlin, I have to be brief and let the images speak for themselves concerning the look. :-)
ENG: Crazy, how fast time is running at the moment. I have still some looks left from my time in Paris during this year’s Fashion Week and today I would like introduce such an outfit. This look belongs definitely to my favorites based on its high comfort, style factor and protection against the bad autumn weather.
In general I am not a person with lots of different colors in an outfit, unless it is about pink and rose. ;-) With regard to this red colored Oversized sweater I could not resist and just had to go for it. Under the sweater I am wearing a long, plaid blouse in black and white as well as a Levi’s jeans. My footwear is a black leather version with an open heel, it is the perfect outfit rounding from my point of view based its matching color with the further accessories: sunglasses and bag.
