Weekend cravings

weekend wishlist

Voilà: Mon weekend wish list! Inspired by every blogger’s all-time favorite and one of my personal wardrobe staples: cut-off denim shorts (preferably Levi’s vintage). For early fall I will wear them with a powder toned silk shirt, the new loafers and Chloé-sque retro accessories. So this would be my ideal outfit for the weekend. What’s yours:-)?

YSL Tribute 105 – Should I?

YSL Tribute 105 suede pumps cognac

I’ve been flirting with these babies for the past couple of days. They are the new YSL Tribute 105 pumps in a beautiful cognac suede (sooo my color!).

Now the question is should I go for them despite their delicate material and the slightly uncomfortable KILLER heel? Or should I wait and see what kind of shape (pointy – that’s for sure!) the new season will bring and which other tempations will come my way in F/W 2010? Let me know what you thing, fellow shoe lovers;-)!

Medailles du style


I love the idea of spicing up last year’s simple dark coat with all kinds of military inspired embellishments.

But it also works on the new season’s key piece the Camel coat


So, better start searching your favourite vintage stores or local flea markets for old brooches and medals to create your very unique military look for this fall.

Summer lace & fall shoes

Lace shoes and dress

It’s actually fun to mix summer wardrobe staples with NEW SEASON pieces. And it usually makes for an unexpected, cool outfit that feels fresh while giving you the confidence that only well worn-in things can give. I love how my sister paired her new budapester brogues, which she got here in Italy, with a white lace dress (recalling an Isabel Marant lace number that sold out way too fast!) and classic Wayfarers.

budapester lace-up shoes I think that classic brogues look especially cute on small feet:-). Sarah found these in the most random store here at the lake.

Rediscovered: silk shirts

Jewelry editorial Vogue Paris July 2010

One of the most versatile and simple pieces to wear right now is definitely a powder toned chemise en soie. To me, silk shirts are the surprise hit of the season yet totally season-less.

For the très Parisiènne look wear it all buttoned up with fine gold jewelry and a vintage belt (this one’s from Kiliwatch, Nati’s favourite vintage destination!).

Jewelry editorial Vogue Paris II

A classic silk blouse will soften summer’s utility trend (perfect with khaki shorts!) and solve any pre-fall outfit dilemma while it leaves the floor to statement accessories and fine jewelry. The best brand? Equipment offers classic-cut silk blouses in creamy white or powdery beige at a reasonable price point.

Summer in the City, Paris The Sartorialist

Very ‘summer in the city-ish’! The soft shade enhances a summer tan (working on mine right now!) and looks completely effortless when left unbuttoned.

Playing checks


Last week I modeled for a little project of my friend Luisa, who is studying at ESMOD in Paris.

She created the cutest outfit ever, with a perfectly fitting tweed blazer, cropped pants and a little oh-so Parisian hat. Louisa drew her inspirations from men’s wear pieces, in particular the style of our all time favourite beau Chuck Bass.

Berlin Day 2

Berlin outfit of the day

Berlin Fashion Week day 2 outfit. My lovely co-worker took this picture of me this morning right before we headed out to see the first show (Schumacher). I am wearing a night blue Prada shirt all buttoned up with a swirly Isabel Marant Étoile print skirt. Oh and I just got these Chlóe sandals on sale a couple of days ago and am so in love! Their shape is completely retro – the kind of retro that is still a bit ahead of its time! Will try for a closer pic later.

Petite Palermo

Olivia Palermo at Markus Lupfer Berlin_I

Olivia Palermo attending the Markus Lupfer presentation at Soho House Berlin today.

Olivia Palermo with a tan Hermès Birkin bagActually Olivia is real petite. I didn’t even recognize her at first sight when she walked into the lobby of Soho House. She was wearing this white draped dress which she tucked into a Markus Lupfer fringy skirt and belted it with a signature silk scarf. Oh and she was standing on her toes the entire time for the pictures:-). So cute!

Olivia Palermo at Markus Lupfer Berlin

It was a really hot day in Berlin and I wonder how she managed to look so fresh! I’d love to see a make-up tutorial of Olivia Palermo – her complexion was really flawless and evenly tanned.

Now off for an iced caffe latte!
