white Chanel vintage bag

28. November 2018

ENGI had been looking for the PERFECT vintage bag for ages now. I have a special love for white Chanel vintage pieces, like for example my blue and white striped fabric piece, which I could wear every day. I have been searching on various platform for a long time, since the price/quality ratio was just off most of the time, or I was just too late for some of the pieces. Eventually I took a look at the eBay selection and found a white vintage bag, which still makes my heart beat faster.
Did you know that eBay really has changed within the last couple of years? Back when I was a teenager I used to look for special pieces, and nowadays most of the products (80%) are NEW and can be bought immediately, which eliminates the classic bidding.
In addition, there is a luxury vintage category now, in which not only all products are certified for their quality and authenticity, but can also be returned, if there are any doubts about the purchasing decision afterwards. The selection of statement handbags, especially in the luxury vintage category is huge and includes more than 6.000 pieces of different brands, some of them being Chanel, Hermès, Prada and also Aigner.
With a little patience and the right search filters I found my dream Chanel bag in white with a golden chain and am incredibly happy about its state. If you are also searching for a new watch, bag, or a special piece of clothing for your dearest for Christmas, definitely take a look at eBay. There are a number of great pieces that I can definitely recommend.

How do you like the bag? I styled it with a couple of wintery pieces from my closet and hope you like the look!


eBay luxury bags


DE: Schon eine halbe Ewigkeit war ich auf der Suche nach der PERFEKTEN Vintage Tasche und hielt ständig auf verschiedenen Plattformen Ausschau. Besonders bei Chanel habe ich eine Vorliebe für wunderschöne Vintage Stücke, so wie z.B. meine gestreifte Stofftasche in Blau und Weiß, die ich noch immer am liebsten täglich tragen würde. Lange habe ich gesucht, wobei oftmals entweder das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis nicht stimmte oder ich einfach zu spät dran war. Schlussendlich habe ich mich auf eBay umgeschaut und bin in Form einer weißen Vintage Tasche fündig geworden, die mein Herz noch immer höher schlagen lässt.

Wusstet ihr, dass sich bei eBay so einiges in den letzten Jahren getan hat? Schon als Teenager war ich regelmäßig bei eBay am Stöbern und auf der Jagd nach besonderen Fundstücken, mittlerweile sind die meisten Artikel (80%) NEU und können per „Sofort Kaufen“ erworben werden, also keine klassische Ersteigerung mehr.
Zudem gibt es bei eBay eine luxury vintage Kategorie, bei der nicht nur ALLE Produkte vorher gründlich auf Echtheit und Qualität geprüft werden, sondern auch auf klassische Weise retourniert werden können, falls es an der Kaufentscheidung doch Zweifel geben sollte. Die Auswahl an Statement Taschen, gerade in der Kategorie luxury vintage, ist enorm und umfasst mehr als 6.000 Modelle von verschiedenen Brands, zu denen unter anderem Chanel, Hermès, Prada oder auch Aigner gehören.
Mit ein bisschen Geduld und den richtigen Suchkriterien habe ich meine Traumtasche von Chanel in Weiß mit goldenen Gliedern finden können und bin über den Zustand der Tasche mehr als glücklich und zufrieden. Sofern ihr auch auf der Suche nach einer neuen Uhr, Tasche oder einem besonderen Kleidungsstück für euch oder eure Liebsten zu Weihnachten seid, schaut unbedingt mal auf eBay vorbei. Es sind wirklich ein paar tolle und empfehlenswerte Teile dabei!

Wie gefällt euch die Tasche? Ich habe sie mit ein paar winterlichen Teilen aus meinem Kleiderschrank kombiniert und hoffe, dass euch mein Look gefällt.

Max Mara oversized coat & Gucci belt

7. Januar 2018

ENG: Happy sunny Sunday! The sun has been shining the entire day here in Hamburg, which honestly just felt so good – so we took the chance to take some photos straight away. With this outfit I would like to introduce you to my absolute favorite vintage find – this oversized Max Mara coat, which i spiced up with a Gucci belt. In combination with a black knitted sweater, a pair of Jeans, Gucci sneaker and the denim Chanel bag, this look isn’t only perfect for every day and every occasion, but also playful and stylish at the same time. The color combination of black, white and blue works well every time too, which is why I like to wear it to all kinds of events and occasions. Now I’m curious what you think:

Do you like the combination of ‘oversized’ coat and statement belt?

All black street style look | Edited knit sweater

1. Dezember 2017

Anzeige

ENGGood morning from Hamburg, where winter has arrived fully. Yet, I don’t want that to drag me down, because the colder it is, the more cozy knitted jumpers and oversized coats are.
Still, I didn’t style a coat for this outfit, because the different pieces are in perfect harmony without it already. The main pieces of this look is the black knitted jumper by Edited the Label. With a couple of color highlights such as the Bouquet fabric of the Chanel Bag and the red stripes on the Gucci shoes, it already turns into a stylish outfit, even though I kept it all-black for a change. But if that’s not really your thing – the same cozy jumper is also available in blue and blush – so anyone will find the right color. I found the bag, which is one of my absolute favorite shoulder bags via Vite EnVogue – it’s such a classy small bag, and adds a glamourous touch to the outfit. I finished the look with a Beanie by Acne – also in black – and I was prepared for the cold winds up North :-)

Do you like the all-black look?

23. Oktober 2017

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!

Favorite post of the week: trend report | oversized knit sweater

New In: Last week, I got the controversial Balenciaga triple 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 pink knitted sweater from Edited, 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…

edited_the_label_knit_pink

ENG: Bonjour from Paris – at the moment I’m staying in the city of love with Cartier in order to learn more about the new ‚OSNI‘ perfume at the Palais de Tokyo. Nevertheless I would now like to introduce a further look for the current transition period from Hamburg, for me the perfect combination of chick and casual elements as the ideal foundation for daily use.
In detail it’s about a really nice and comfortable oversized knitted sweater from the latest Edited the label autumn collection. The knitted sweater has not only an amazing color but also a soft material, an appealing cut and is therefore ideally suitable for the cold season. I’ve decided for the combination with a grey colored satin skirt and my greatly loved Chanel sneaker based on their matching colors fit. Concerning the accessories I’ve consciously made my choice for black colored pieces for creating a smooth and harmonious feeling within this look.

What do you think about this look? Do you like the combination with the knitted sweater?

one shoulder blouse | Chanel Slingback heels

30. Juli 2017

Dolcegabbana_bag

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.

What do you think about this look? Happy Sunday!

weekly_focus_26

ENG: A very eventful week is over and today I would like to use the „weekly focus“ to look back on these exciting days. Everything started with a flight to London, where we were hosted by Net-A-Porter to the Summer Sports Day at the idyllic Soho Farmhouse. For me it was definitely one of the best events in the recent past based on the perfect organization as well as the positive energy of all contact persons and participants that day. We had so much fun, therefore I will publish a separate post this week with more detailed information about the day’s procedure, my physical activities as well as my outfits that day.
From London I took a direct flight to Greece in order to join a girls trip hosted by the Hell&Karrer PR agency. We were allowed to sleep in the beautiful Sani Dunes 6 stars hotel as the perfect place for peace, comfort and a relaxed atmosphere. As brand partner Dior Make-Up, Juvia, Lancaster and Seafolly were on the spot, in addition to that Laura and me took over the Instyle Germany Instagram account last Friday, where we shared our looks and hotel impressions. Have you recognized the take over? Did you like our picture selection?

Favorites of the week

To Do: At the moment we are staying in Berlin for participating in shows and events of this year’s Fashion Week. In collaboration with CATRICE we are sleeping in the amazing Hotel de Rome in close connection to the State Opera, it is the perfect retreat of an exciting program during the next days with fashion, lifestyle and beauty related events. As you know me, I will share the majority of my impressions via Instagram and co. with you. Since a few years I am a regular participant of the Berlin Fashion Week, that is honestly not as glamorous and pompous as those in Paris or New York but it allows continually the get-together of well-known faces within the fashion industry as well as the exciting interaction with other blogger and brands. In the end of this week I would also like to share a small review of my personal insights, impressions and outfits here in and from Berlin.

Your favorite post of the week:  weekly focus 25 | 17

New In: In London my shopping heart is exploded because I could finally get the last pair of the Dior „J‘ ADIOR“ Slingback heels, that were on my wish list for some time. In addition to that I could not resist to buy the new, dark blue MIU MIU fur slides with studs based on their high comfort and the stylish combining opportunities. From Net-A-Porter I have received this fabulous statement sunglasses from Chloé, a black colored Prada beach bag and this cute, mint green maxi dress. Last but not least I was very happy about the surprise package from Topshop in terms of a girlfriend jeans and this casual, rose colored in-between coat.

Santa Monica | stripes

28. April 2017

ENG: Until now I associated Los Angeles as cool spot with a modern and easy lifestyle but not necessarily as nice and idyllic city. However as we drove to Santa Monica beach for a daily trip last Tuesday, it had happened to me. I am totally in love with the bright beach sections, cute cafés, huge waves, the lifestyle feeling and open-minded people, so I directly had to shoot my first look at one of the diverse lifeguard tower.
The outfit’s centre is certainly the striped one shoulder top from Edited the Label, I am so addicted to the top, that I even own a second one of it in black in the meantime. The one shoulder piece is stylish and comfortable likewise, it can be used in different ways of combinations and is suited for a day on the beach or in the city at the same time. I am combining the top with a simple cropped jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as my Chanel bag, that I already spotted several times between West Hollywood and Santa Monica. ;-) We have some plans in mind for the upcoming days and will further share our honest impressions via Instagram with you, in addition to that we have already prepared some video footage, that will be introduced very soon.

What do you think about this look? Sunny greetings from California!

aylin_koenig_street_style

ENG: Back in Germany I could unpack my new delivery from Kate Spade NY with great joy based on this amazing oversized coat and the pink colored Isobel bag. You know my passion for coats in general, this time I am especially addicted to the coat’s camel pattern. The trademark of the Kate Spade NY label is the love for flashy colors, graphical prints and playful designs. The luxurious bags and accessories of the brand express vitality and combine style and fun in a particular way, for me a succeeded and very recommendable mix auf luxury and pleasure.
I am combining these pieces with a white colored blouse, a ripped jeans as well as my beloved Chanel Slingback pumps as color-coordinated match with the coat. The conspicuous bag screams for Spring and happiness and has also the perfect size for daily use – love it! :-)

What do you think about this look? Do you know the brand Kate Spade NY?

Aylin Koenig_07

ENG: Long sleeves and oversized coats belong definitely to the current fashion trends, for sure these products are not necessarily part of the daily routine but it looks always very stylish and casual. I have already fallen in love with this trend and like conspicuous sleeves in any form this season, no matter if bell or trumpet shape, even as oversized product they have a high style factor from my point of view.
Recently I have got a request from style.com for discovering their popular pieces within the womenswear exclusive collection. In this context I have decided for this beautiful, grey colored hoodie as well as the classical camel coat, both products belong the brand Vetements, that is famed for its exaggerated proportions and the elevated streetwear. I have combined these products with a two tones jeans, my beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in metallic pink as well as the Chanel bag. At style.com you can find a variety of fancy and special pieces, the homepage exhibits a huge style and fashion character, so that it is getting more and more my preferred inspiration and shopping source.
