If I had to name one piece of clothing as my “all-time-go-to-piece”, it would be these boyfriend-jeans by Current Elliott. Ever since the beginning of spring, there hasn´t passed a week without me wearing these pants at least once. The edgy destroyed-look combined with the casual fit is what makes these jeans so interesting, and I love to combine them with precious materials and luxury accessories.

For today´s look, I chose a nude silk blouse, my beloved new Valentino Rockstud pumps (thank you so much for finding these beauties for me, dear Steffl-team!) and my versatile Louis Vuitton clutch. And even though this is not a combination that I would wear often, it was perfect for the occassion, a casual dinner with some good friends.

Jeans: Current Elliott (also available here and a less expensive version via Asos)

Blouse: Les Petites (a few years old, but I am loving this or that blouse)

Shoes: Valentino Rockstud (also here and here)

Clutch: Louis Vuitton (currently craving this one)

Lipstick: Dior Addict Lip Maximizer

Nail Polish: Dior Le Vernis color “Victoire”

Review: Rouge Louboutin by Christian Louboutin Beauté

Earlier this month, shoe designer Christian Louboutin released an assortment of nail polish, the first products in his beauty line. While it was assumed that he might introduce red lipstick as his first product, it is actually nail lacquer. Early in his career, the designer famously grabbed some red nail polish from his assistant and painted the sole of a shoe he was working on to make it more vibrant. Thus, a legendary product was born.

A Day In Vienna + Steffl Department Store

A few weeks ago I enjoyed a short stay in one of the most beautiful cities of Europe: Vienna. The Austrian capital has a population of approximately 1.7 million people and is the second largest German speaking city in Europe. Vienna is also the only city that was named six times in a row for most livable city worldwide – quite an honor, don´t you think? But to be honest, this result does not surprise me at all. With such a fantastic architecture (that is much more beautiful than the Parisian one), clean streets, a thought-through infrastructure and a variety of parks you just have to fall in love.

Last weekend my dear friend T. had invited me and a bunch of other girls over for her bridal shower. We had such a great time and I was so happy to see my friend all excited for her upcoming wedding.

What do you think, gals?

Review: Fan di Fendi Extreme Eau de Parfum

Today I would like to review one of the most intense, yet feminine perfumes I have tried. Fendi´s new fragrance, Fan di Fendi Extreme is a very sensual and intense version of its predecessor and designed for strong, mature women.

The packaging is very much Fendi: The golden logo against the glass is inspired by the famous Baguette bag, and the bottle´s closure design is based on the wonderful Peekaboo bag. I just love how the bottle feels heavy and nice in my hand, plus it makes for a nice design piece in my bathroom.

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?

Dress: Patrizia Pepe

Shoes: Prada (sold out, find a similar pair here or here)

Bracelets: Fendi and Hermès

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:
