It was love at first sight when I noticed this dress a few weeks during a short trip to the parisian summer sale. The fine fabric, the flowy cut and the sweet flower print make this maxi gown just perfect for summer!

Since I wore nude nail polish and beige accessoires with this outfit, I opted for a turquoise Chanel bag and pink lips for a little bit of color. Is there any better way to freshen up a look?

Chanel Fall 2014 “Collection États Poétiques”

A few weeks ago I had the chance to attend Chanel´s Open Days press event in Hamburg. It was quite a little sensation for me as this had been the first time ever that Chanel invited bloggers, and for me to be one of these “chosen ones” was quite a little honor. Not only did Chanel do presentation of their new fall collection (that will be available from August 16th), but we also had the chance to test and try each and every product. And with a color range that big and wonderful, I must admit that it wasn´t easy to chose my favorite products: Intense berry tones are combined with deep blues, soft nudes and beiges, while powerful pinks meet very autumny violet shades:

Oh my, how time flies! It´s been already four months since I found myself at Chanel in Paris, adding one of the most fabulous and beautiful colored bags I know to my collection. But since the weather was so rainy and gloomy almost all summer long, I never really got the chance to wear this bright and stunning gem until last weekend:

Review: YSL Summer Look 2014

This year, YSL presents a colorful and vibrating collection that was inspired by the beauty of nature, water and endless skies:

“Color is born of light. Light is born of color. This summer, Lloyd Simmons gives in to the fascinaton of the blues so dear to Monsieur Saint Laurent. Celadon, Majorelle, Cyclades. For the summer look 2014, he was inspired by the movements of water mirroring the sun, and a play of Chiaroscuro celebrates the way blue is exalted by its complementary colors.”

Since you have already seen my looks from Luisaviaroma´s Firenze4Ever event (which you can buy here among some of my other favorite items from the online store), I thought it would be nice to show you some pictures from the wonderful weekend we spent in Tuscany. And I can only repeat myself and say that we had a fabulous time in Firenze, all thanks to the lovely Luisaviaroma-team.

After last week´s first Firenze4Ever Style Lab look, I think it´s time I show you the second outfit I styled for Luisaviaroma´s half-yearly event.

Oh what can I say… This dress is everything a girl could wish for! Soft silk, a flowy fabric paired with a figure flattering design make this robe one of the most fabulous and beautiful pieces of clothing I have ever seen!

For a more edgy and less conventional look, I combined this stunning dress with a black leather jacket/cape and the famous “crisp packet” clutch from Anya Hindmarch, whose design is inspired by a potato chips packet :-)

Dress: Alexander McQueen

Jacket: Diesel Black Gold

Clutch: Anya Hindmarch

Shoes: Gianvito Rossi (totally fell in love with these!)

Collier: Vittorio Ceccoli

P.S. All outfits with product details are now up on Luisaviaroma!

My Visit To Maison Guerlain Paris

Paris, Champs Elysées 68. The Maison Guerlain is a grand architectural masterpiece located on one of the worlds most famous avenues. For more than 100 years, this has been the home to Guerlain and the boutique is still attracting an enormous amount of visitors every year. In 2013, the house has been renovated by star architect Peter Marino, who kept the many magnificent historic elements and combined them with the works of 20 contemporary artists to decorate the interior in a modern, timeless way. The result is a stunning combination of art, design and history.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a tour of the renovated Maison Guerlain and today I want to share my impressions with you.

It´s been exactly a week since I have returned from Florence, and I am still indulging in all the beautiful memories I made during my trip to Italy. Luisa Via Roma, one of the biggest and most famous online-stores for luxury fashion, had invited me among a few other bloggers, editors and journalists to attend their half-yearly Firenze4Ever event. During three very well organised days, we had the exclusive chance to style one to three different looks, choosing from whatever Luisa Via Roma had to offer for the upcoming fall/winter collections. And since I almost never get the chance to wear such fabulous gowns, I opted for two glamourous looks of  which I would like to show you the first one today.

It´s the year of the FIFA worldcup, and since this event´s motto was Brazil, I opted for a dress and bag by brazilian designers:

Dress: Fabiana Milazzo

Clutch: Les Petits Joeurs

Bracelet: Erickson Beamon

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (loving these from Givenchy)

Two weeks ago I (once again) had the chance to spend a wonderful day in Paris, the city of my dreams, and with Dior, one of my favorite beauty brands. The french maison had invited me to get a sneak peek of and to try a new and very interesting product line that has just launched here in Europe. Well, when I say `interesting`, I really mean it, because for this summer, Dior surprises with an unprecedented, colorful special edition: Eyeliners, eye shadows and Mascara now play with bold and bright colors.

No other brand is such an expert in creating the perfect summer makeup-look. In 1984 when the french maison first released its bronzing powder, nobody would have thought that this product would revolutionize the way women would do their makeup. In order to celebrate 30 succesful years of Terracotta, Guerlain has now released an Anniversary Terracotta Sun Celebration Blusher & Bronzer in addition to a few other fabulous products that I would like to review today.
