Topshop addict

Apologies for not updating yesterday! I really wanted to do this quiiick outfit post before going out for dinner with the girls but then I was on the phone til the very last minute…La Di Da.  Wearing my new TOPSHOP check shirt (it has made its way up to the top of repeated-outfits-in-a-row!) with cigarette leg denims from Blank, old Gucci sunnies and platform pumps.

Meet La Fee


I have the pleasure to introduce to you one of my most stylish friends: Carla-Fee. We mostly just call her “Fee” which means FAIRY. There is no better word to describe her! She is sweet, gorgeous and has impeccable taste. What I admire most about her art-inspired, feminine way of dressing is the fact that she never tries to be trendy. She doesn’t seem to need approval from anyone or anything. Fee likes a certain piece or combination and that is that.

When we asked her to model some of her favorites for our blog she was right into it. I hope u like what you see;-)!

New hair WANTED

Mary Kate Olsen beach hair

The way you wear your hair can actually make or break an entire look. It can change your style from preppy to boho and from messy to chic. Recently I am pretty much into the whole “undone” hair-thing. With messy curls that look like you’ve spent the day at the BEACH (think sun, wind and salty air!). The queen of XL-beach-hair? MK Olsen of course!

Fall-ish part two


Last weekend we did our first outfit shoots for this fall, it was a beautiful day and the light was just perfect. While Sarah went for faux fur, I decided to play a bit with forms. So I paired my drop-crotch pants with sculptural shoulders.

Time during fashion weeks is CRAZY…it almost feels like being in a race against your blogreader, trying to keep up with all that new fashion material each day. There are so many new pictures and inspirations, it’s total information overload – in a good way! So, while all the attention already shifted to London, I am still catching up with New York! Voila, a few of my personal highlights from NY fashion week…

Fall-ish part one

Fall-ish outfit number one

To be honest it was a little too hot for FAUX FUR when we shot fall outfits on Sunday. But then again you have to work a trend when it’s hot, right;-)? And apparently faux fur is one of the hottest things right now! So hurry up, weather!

Golden days

Golden days

I had an awesome time these past couple of days. It’s been warm, sunny and beautiful – just like a golden fall should be. And BTW it’s my favourite fashion season!

Took some pictures down by the harbour with my new photographer;-). He did an amazing job catching the warm glow of the fall light!

Tatouage blue


This picture by Jak & Jil is definitely today’s highlight! I like how it all blends together: Heidi Mount’s dark make-up, the pattern of her Alexander Wang romper, the pops of blue in the background and the tattoo like arm painting kept from the Rodarte show. Speaking of which, Kate and Laura once again managed to create a truely fantastic collection with an incredible mix of materials, lots of deconstruction and an “out-of-this-world” vibe. Check out the pictures of their collection here.

subtrend: aviator chic

Aviator Chic

The first impressions of the new Alexander Wang collection for Spring 2010 really surprised me: here I had  expected yet another grunge inspired collection with lots of black leather and sexy denim. However, Alex turned to a more sporty theme, without compromising his usual sexiness, though. Inspired by his collaboration with the GAP earlier this year, he stayed true to the all-American sportswear spirit. He used lots of khaki and grey, red and white rugby stripes and brown leather, all spiced up with some pretty hot leopard peep toe booties. There was one particular elemenent of his collection, which immediately caught my attention: aviator inspired pieces like an aviator cap, a great jacket and little applications all in caramel-brown leather.

I always had a thing for the aviator look, so I started thinking of how to work the look for the upcoming season already…

Shopped the closet

Vintage velvet jacket

VINTAGE TREASURE! It really just took me a few stitches to make this beautiful uniform jacket fit my shoulders. It’s an original from the 80′s so of course it has shoulder pads (but they were different back then)! Paired with my favourite pair of slashed skinnies and the new killer-heels it is likely to become one of my favorite fall outfits.

Blinded by Balmain…


German top model and natural beauty Toni Garn photographed by Knoepfel and Indlekofer for the September issue of German Vogue.

On this shot she is wearing this season’s IT piece and Les Coupines’ FAVOURITE: the sequined, striped sweater with sharp shoulders. Decarnain manages to combine three key trends in one single piece without overdoing it. Unfortunately, this Balmain piece is well out of our reach, but we love the alternative by French brand Sandro.
