This fall, Dior suprises us with a collection that evolves all around the famous 5 Couleurs eye shadow palette:
“Dior reinvents the revered 5 Couleurs palette, creator of couture eyes. Inspired by the revival of this legend, the Fall 2014 collection gives pride of place to the 5 emblematic House of Dior colours: Red, Grey, Pink, Black, Blue… dressing the eyes and lips in 5 perfectly chic emblematic looks.”
For over 120 years windsor. has served ladies and gentlemen with timeless and high quality clothing. In its long history the German fashion house has always understood to combine new trends with sophisticated designs. Clean cuts, fine fabrics and a perfect craftmanship ensure that each piece of clothing will stand the test of time.
While browsing windsor´s new fall/winter collection, I stumbled upon some beautiful items that I would like to show today:
Leather Jacket: Neil Barrett
Handbag: Saint Laurent
Pumps: Christian Louboutin
Eyeshadow Palette: Dior 5 Couleurs
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 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.
Accordingly dressed for the occasion, I opted for something different and paired my new rose colored tutu skirt with a beige ruffled silk top.
What do you think, gals?
Skirt: Needle & Thread (also available here)
Top: Reiss (sold out, find a very similar one here)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Dos Noeuds (loving this alternative)
Nail polish: Dior Le Vernis color “Bonheur”
Lipgloss: Dior Addict Lip Maximizer
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.
I hope you all had a great, sunny weekend, my dear readers. Today I want to show a classic cocktail attire featuring my favorite blouse from Haute Hippie that I wore on a dinner night while in Barcelona this spring:
Blouse: Haute Hippie (similar version here)
Skirt: Gucci (sold out, but this one is quite similar)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Dos Noeuds (also available here or here )
Clutch: Louis Vuitton
Nail Polish and Lipstick: Dior Le Vernis Farbe “Bonheur” & Givenchy Le Rouge “Rose Dressing” No. 202
While browsing the internet and searching for some new lamps for our home, I stumbled upon a fabulous furniture company called Bolia. The scandinavian firm designs and develops a very modern, yet timeless range of furniture and home accessories. Bolia also runs stores in Germany and Scandinavia, with more locations opening around Europe soon.
Bolia was kind enough to share these images of their upcoming collection for 2015 with me:
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
Nail Polish and Lipstick: Estée Lauder Nudite and Dior Addict Fluid Stick Rieuse
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:
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.
Using the theme “Le Corbusier travels to Versailles” Karl Lagerfeld presented his fall-winter 2014/15 collection last Tuesday. In his designs Lagerfeld plays with the materials like creating a full-fledged material out of cement. Thanks to Chanel for the exciting look behind the scenes:
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
