mon dieu ...

... c'était incroyable. 

unfortunately i'm back from paris. we had a wonderful time over there, visited the main touristic hot spots but also some rather hidden places. for those who are interested in antiques should definitely visit the flea market called "les puces". the second-hand lovers among us are going to love the store kiliwatch. and ladurée finally opened their doors again; who can say no to such delicious macarons.

let's cruise away

i know, i know... winter is around the corner but i already spotted my new favourite summer slippers for 2013 from the chanel cruise collection. 400€ are a lot for a little bit of fabric and bast sole, but they are sooooo cool.
 aren't they?

karl who?

in the recent weeks i did not post a lot of stuff due to two really annoying exams. since yesterday i'm a free agent again - yeaaah. so stay tuned folk.

i'm a huge fan of brand hacks in the fashion industry. karl who? bags or the ysl shirt from 5 preview, however, are a little bit worn out. BUT then i stumpled across those three guys. need all of them!!!

death by studs

in the past weeks i recognized an inescapable wave of studs on everything. in the beginning i was really into the whole studded shorts and studded loafer trend, but by now it's just getting too much. below you can see some of my top picks. nevertheless this "i'm cool, i have studds everywhere" hype must stop. pleeease.

back to the ...

from paris with love. 


i'm not quite sure why i like this collection so much, but it has something to do with the 90s vibe. oliver rousteing presents fancy blazer with broad shoulders and stretch dresses. listening to sade right now - smooth operator - just fits perfectly. 


ready-to-wear? always. raf simons presented his first ready-to-wear collection for dior in paris. i love the metallic-looks and black suit variations. to my great joy he also uses transparent garments and tulle (really really really like the blue/black dress with the tulle)

saint laurent.

just two words: rock chic. hedi slimane seems to know his craft. first of all i need such a hat and second off all i love the mystical touch of the whole collection. black bows, leather, sequinned jackets, maxi dresses, fur jackets - welcome to the 70s of tomorrow.

mamma mia

mamma mia. welcome to milano.

francesco scognamigilio.

recently i discovered my love for lingerie design. it all began with the amazing collection of jason wu in new york and progresses with the designs of scognamilgilio. definitely need more transparent clothing for upcoming summer.


that's what i would call a firework of colours. this time gucci shows monochrome dresses in white and shinny colours. additionally one can recognize a lot of flounces. the simple white dress with the low neckline is just perfect. summer, here we go.

alberta ferretti.

mermaids in the house. ferrettis' designs just take one along in a beautiful underwater world. the robes are sequined and she used a lot of transperent (!!!) garments. i'm totally in love with the colour palette from azure blue to emeralg green. i want to be a mermaid, so badly.

sorbet for everyone

right after new york, the fashion folk travels to london town. 


welcome to the country side. mulberry presented a beautiful collection inspired by the great scenic beauty of england. in my mind mulberry designs timeless pieces that can be worn with nearly everything. i'm totally in love with the mint coat and wouldn't say no to a floral pattern sweater. as every year fashion addicts pay special attention to the accessories of mulberry. this year they introduced the willow bag: a shopper with an additional clutch that can be removed subject to whim. the new transformer bag seems to be a strong competitor of the alexa or bayswater.


i never really had moralogolu erdem below the radar but this collection blew me away. he processed a lot of exotic materials and emphasized the designs with transparent details. the sorbet-coloured dresses are such an eye-candy. my favourite piece of the show is the skyblue tight maxi dress. need it so badly!

burberry prorsum.

with the burberry prorsum show christoper bailey proved how classic and thrilling metallic designs can look like. the whole collection is dominated by strong colours which in the final walk reminded one of an opalescent rainbowthe combination of leather, satin and silk goes hand in hand with the smooth cuts. i'm totally in love with the olive sequined trench coat but again wouldn't mind to own any other piece.

o zapft' is

in the early morning i hit the road off to munich. i will be back on sunday evening. until then i will enjoy the beautiful city and a lot of beer at the oktoberfest. please be patient with me concerning new posts.


26 September 2012


once in a while fashion designer come together to share their newest masterpieces with the world. the spectacle started early in september in new york and now comes slowly to an end in paris. in this and the upcoming posts i will reveal my favourite runway looks from the four fashion capitals. starting with new york!


for their spring 2013 collection marchesa found inspiration in india. they designed beautiful dresses composed of opalescent colours, embroideries and golden ornaments. as if that weren't enough georgina chapman and keren craig mixed the lace dresses and saris with a sixties vibe. i especially love the dark red (oxred!) beaded dress with the fringes.

oscar de la renta:

oscar de la renta is a master of restaging. i adore his classic designs combined with striking crochet work, feather elements and tulle. as every year the pompous ball gowns closed the show. this time i enjoyed the sheath dresses and suits even more. for upcoming spring i would love to call the cream peplum skirt combined with the floral top mine.

jason wu:

above you can see my personal love story: leather meets lace. first of all i want to thank helmut newton for inspiring jason! the designs are plainly fabulous. the erotic influence of newton's pictures is obvious: scarce skirts and dresses, lingerie elements, bustiers, leather, lace and a lof of tulle. i'm totally in love with the dark blue dress with the 'stardust' on it. stardust. stardust. stardust ... can't get it out of my mind.

nasty autumn

as already mentioned in my last post, autumn is coming. i took the initiative and went through my favourite three online stores to look for perfect outfit combinations. lean back and enjoy.

pastel affairs.
candy colours for everyone. i just loved the pastel designs from recent summer - therefore i'm not willing to let them go again. for upcoming autumn and winter i would combine them with some tough pieces as black leather jackets and biker boots. my favourite piece from nasty gal at the moment is the grey fur jacket - such an eye catcher.

barock 'n' roll.
whether it is dolce & gabanna or john galliano, all go back into the 17th century. an earlier decade composed of decadence and kitsch. i really like the jacquard patterns, the flashy garnishment and beaded accessories. since i'm not the person who would go for a complete rokoko outfit, i would combine some selected pieces with leather pants or studded boots. (just had to put the chloé boots into the mash-up, even though one cannot buy them at asos)

leather + oxblood.
as you may have noticed by now, i'm a black girl. i do like colourful outfits but still need some black in it. at pixie market i found my new favourite colour palette: black with oxblood. the dark red just matches perfectly with the black. i especially like the dress with the silver sequins skirt and transparent maxi layered upon it. yeah it is a little bit early- but it has high potential to become my new silvester dress.

dip dye // dip die

more and more girls dip their hair in the big paint pot and show their colours around. some of them remind me of the 'my little pony' version with the multi-coloured mane, still others just look awesome (see mashup above). i personally love the ombre version, since it is more suitable for daily life. memo: next project for my hair - ombre dip dye.

how you can look awesome:

  • the brave ones can use directions. they tincture the hair directly and later grow out of the hair. if you have brown or even darker hair you should be cautious about applying a light colour as pink. you first need to dye the hair blond, otherwise the directions turn out as lila or something totaly different.

  • for the ones who just want to try the new look for several occassions, i would suggest the colour bug of kevin murphy. you can buy it online for 22€ and choose between three colours: pink, lila and orange (still missing my favourite for darker hair: turquoise). the bug reminds of rouge powder and can be easily applied and later washed out.

  • for the diy lovers pastel crayon can be used to colour the hair. just use a little bit of water to damp the beginning of the crayon and paint your hair. (i will definitely try this with turquoise!)

but remember: one colour at a time.

slipper obsession

in the recent month i discovered my profound love for slippersat the back of people's mind, the shoes sometimes remind them of grandpa scuffs. in my mind they are masterpieces that can be worn to every occasion. since i don't really like the shape of ballerinas anymore (maybe i just got tired of them), they provide a perfect alternative for boots or high heels. below you can find outfit combinations with my favourites!
