Ich liebe Dior. Denn Dior verkörpert für mich all diejenigen Dinge, die ich mit einer perfekten Welt verbinde: Tradition trifft Innovation, Stil paart sich mit Moderne und Eleganz vermengt sich mit einer charmanten Lässigkeit. Seit mehr als 60 Jahren ist das französische Traditionsunternehmen fester Bestandteil der Coutoure- und Beautywelt, und ich freue mich sehr, euch heute ein paar ganz herausragende Produktneuheiten vorstellen zu dürfen:

Outfit: Taupe Cashmere Coat x Valentino Rockstud Pumps

Today´s look is all about some of my current favorite wardrobe pieces. For this first fall outfit, I combined my cozy and soft cashmere coat with some simple skinny jeans and a silk top by COS. My beloved Valentino Rockstud pumps that I am wearing in these pictures are the most comfortable and versatile shoes I have ever owned – if you are looking for the perfect everyday show, this is the one, gals!
Since the overall look is quite neutral, I opted for a bright pink lipstick and some colorful bracelets by talented jewelry designer Sara Lashay.

Shopbop Shopping Guide

As you all know, shopping – and especially online shopping –  is one of my biggest passions. Since I love to browse the internet´s endless selections of designer fashion, I would even go so far as to say that shopping has become one of my secret hobbies :-)

Anyway, one of the stores that I regularly frequent is Amazon owned company Shopbop. Specialised in women´s fashion, Shopbop has grown a lot from its launch in 2000 and has now become one of the leading fashion retailers. With an impressive selection of over 800 designers and brands such as Marc Jacobs, Guiseppe Zanotti, J Brand or Acne, the variety of clothing, shoes and accessoires is absolutely amazing and unique. There is also a section with different boutiques (wedding/designer/Editor´s pick etc.) that features limited-edition and special pieces and is meant to inspire.

This autumn, YSL dedicates its makeup line to one of the most popular, most used and coveted textures of all time: leather. The “second skin”, as the luxurious, soft material is called has strongly influenced the look of the french house´s new range of products:

“As rock as a leather biker jacket, as fetish as a pair of black patent stilettos, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté introduces the Black Fetish make-up collection for Fall 2014.”

Outfit: A Casual and Cozy Pre-Fall Look

Perfectly suitable for the autumnal mood of the last few days I’ve decided for this casual outfit that includes two of my latest purchases. The warm cashmere sweater is luxuriously soft and perfect for a stroll along the banks of the Rhine. For a small splash of color I combined it with my new scarf by fabulous London-based label Fariba Soltani. The wonderful and soft colors perfectly match my sweater and jeans and I absolutely love the lightweight, yet warm texture of this fine woven scarf…

Cashmere Sweater: Massimo Dutti (sold out, but loving this and this one)

Jeans: 7 For All Mankind (old, find a similar version here and here)

Scarf: Fariba Soltani

Shoes: Jimmy Choo (also available here)

Handbag: Sofia Coppola for LV (nice alternative here or here)

Outfit: Boyfriend-Jeans Meets Silk Blouse

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.
