Black Cinderellas

Black Cinderellas

It’s getting cold down here. Time to get those BLACK wool coats out! Boring? Well, it’s all about the details! Be inspired by the Milanese and French fashionistas and wear your coat with black opaques or lace tights (like Giovanna Battaglia, left). A discrete, all-black outfit will leave the floor to spectacular heels and booties. A small belt accentuates the waist and creates an ultra-feminine look. MK Olsen (far right) shows an even more extravagant version with a long lace skirt and Burberry platform booties (perfect contrast!). Last but not least: break it up with some bright red nailpolish. Okay, Nati would go for pink…Works both perfectly!

Here is a selection of stunning coats for the ultimate Cinderella-feeling:

Let me officially introduce to you my fabulous sister and – at the same time- my best real-life-fashion-friend.

May you all be inspired;-)!




I like this serious picture of her.


But she’s actually more like THIS! Like laughing a lot. And dirty.

Blazer, dress and shoes: all Zara, tights: Falke, mini clutch: Bottega Veneta, lipstick: T. LeClerc Rouge Vibrant.

Go shorty

Emanuelle Alt in overknee boots and shorts

Aaah this outfit really melts my little BLACK heart;-)…I am adding to the crave-list: black denim shorts, over-the-knee boots and a fitted leather blazer. Easy, right? Feel like I need to go (closet-) shopping RIGHT NOW.

Also hot: Emanuelle’s Tom Ford sunnies.

“The blazer is the new coat!”

This is an original quote from my Parisienne friend Melina who – TRUST me – knows what she’s talking about! We spotted great examples of the blazer-mania all over Paris but also elsewhere in the fashion landscape. HOW to wear it? Take inpiration from these stylish ladies:

Rumi Fashiontoast

Rumi from fashiontoast pairs her double-breasted vintage blazer with a short slipdress and all-black-accessories like the Alexander Wang Diego bag.

Ashley Olsen at Hogan

Ashley Olsen wears her grey wool blazer with a thick oversized scarf, cut-off black skinnies and classic pumps.

Same blazer, different outfit! I love how she can pull of a look that consists of only classic pieces like a cardigan, geek glasses and jeans and still look incredibly cool and sexy. Ashley, you’re my style goddess!

Ashley Olsen: Get the look


1. Wear a classic cardigan in bottle green with nothing underneath. I found this one at Topshop for £ 38.

2. Wear it with BASIC black skinny jeans like the Acne Kex Smooth and CUT THEM OFF right under your ankle! It’s the new thing. Slashed denim is sooo last season;-)!

3. Geek glasses in brown add a touch of “librarian”. These are the Ray Ban Wayfarers in Dark Havana.

4. Double-breasted blazer jacket from Miss Selfridge for £ 25. If you want to invest into a more special piece check the Vanessa Bruno Athé collection at La Garconne.

5. Finally a pair of classic pumps like the Louboutin Décoletté 100 jazz pumps will round this look.

So ditch your wool coats this fall: it’s all about the blazer! Got it;-)?

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!

Just came back from a short trip to my favourite spot in the world: Lago Maggiore (a.k.a. THE lake!). Its mediterranean flair and the good old 70′s-glam that has somehow never left make this place very inspiring. Yet it is totally quiet and relaxing unlike other lakes in Northern Italy. My sis and I decided to take some shots right before sundown trying to catch the gloaming light:

Summer Styles Part 2

my summer style-2

Voilà, some of my favourite summer looks! As with Carola, my colour palette is rather neutral with lots of black, white and grey…spiced up with some pops of gold. This summer I practically live in my jeans shorts, which I dress up with a blazer and heels or down with my favourite Miu Miu gladiators and a simple tee. Did I mention that I spent most of the time searching for the perfectly fitting white t-shirt? Sometimes, the simple things are the hardest to find…!
