Last Monday, Chanel has increased its prices in Europe and the United Kingdom; the USA are set to follow on May 1st. And I am not talking about little increases, no, with the Jumbo flap bag going from € 3.450 up to € 3.950, we are talking about a whole other level of Chanel shopping…
ich freue mich sehr, euch pünktlich zum Osterfest ein besonders schönes Gewinnspiel präsentieren zu dürfen: Gemeinsam mit der talentierten Schmuckdesignerin Sara Lashay, die ich in den letzten Monaten kennen und schätzen gelernt habe, verlose ich einen Shopping-Gutschein im Wert von € 200. Die glückliche Gewinnerin darf in Sara´s Online-Shop nach Lust und Laune aus einer Auswahl von Ohrringen, Armbändern und Ketten ihre liebsten Schmuckstücke heraussuchen.
Ich selbst besitze mittlerweile einige ihres wunderbaren Schmucks (siehe hier, hier, hier oder hier) und kombiniere sie zu eleganten, aber auch sportlichen Outfits. Die Auswahl an verschiedenen Farben, Steinen und Modellen ist riesengroß, und wer dennoch nicht gleich fündig werden sollte, kann sich auch ein individuelles Design aus eigenen Ideen anfertigen lassen.
Most of you may remember that I was invited by Dior to spend two wonderful days in Paris, the city of love, fashion and beauty. During a fabulous event, Dior launched two of their new “it-products”, the Dior Addict Fluid Stick and a revised line of their famous Le Vernis nail polishes. In today´s post, I would like to give you a more detailled insight about the Addict Fluid Stick, a beauty item which I have learned to love:
If I had to choose one color that I would have to wear for the rest of my life, well, it would definitely be white. The clean, classic and neutral look is so refreshing and goes with just every other shade I can imagine, plus it immediately gives you that summery fun feeling…
For today´s all white look, I wore my new Maje biker jacket that I bought in Paris last week. While browsing the stores on Rue du Faubourg, we visited Maje (I have to admit that it was very last minute and that we didn´t have much time to check out the whole range of clothes), and my dear friend Elli pulled out this wonderful short blazer and said “this is the perfect jacket for you”! Well, to make a long story short, I tried the jacket and of course I just had to buy it.
In regards to the footwear, I am happy to annouce that “open toe season” has officially started! Being a huge fan of wedges, I combined these Prada sandals together with my beige Chanel bag, a turquoise Hermès bracelet and some very red Dior nails.
Have a great evening everybody! xoxo
Shoes: Prada (a few years old, similar pair here)

Today´s outfit features one item that I have owned for many years but never really shown here on my blog: my destroyed Current Elliott boyfriend-jeans. It might seem quite a bit unusual to some of you as you are more used to seeing me in, well, let´s say, more elegant and less edgy looks. But there is just something about these pants that makes me want to wear them out as soon as spring is around the corner…

It´s April, which means that a new month has begun and that it´s time for a short review of my favorite products:
Well, spring is officially here now and this means that it’s time to break out those springtime floral fragrances. And oh what a wonderful time it is; the sun is shining and flowers are growing – what better way to get into the feeling with a new floral scent?
For this summer, french fashion house Christian Dior has launched a floral-Fruity version of their popular fragrance Miss Dior called Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet:
It´s sale time! I cleared out my whole closet a few days ago and found some little treasures that are in dire need of a new owner. You can find all items with pictures and full description here, and I am looking forward to your email to firstname.lastname@example.org :-)
Well, let´s start the weekend with one of the go-to-items in my closet: my versatile leather pencil skirt! I know, you´ve seen the skirt quite a few times here on my blog (in this, this and this post…), but I just love the many ways you can wear it. During wintertimes I combine it with ankle boots and a short cashmere sweater, and when it´s warm, I love to wear it with a simple tee, a nice silk blouse or a crop top.
Since I am currently in a black/white kind of mode, I opted for this fabulous new top I got from Reiss. The scallop-like texture is so interesting and fun (you can get an idea in the detail shot), and I just love the chunky, yet light feel on my skin. To brighten things up, I added a hot pink lipstick and a coral colored Hermès bracelet. Happy weekend, everybody!

Today´s post is about one of the best purchases that I made within these past few weeks, my new Rebecca Taylor sweater. After having featured it in one of my “New In” articles, I just had to have it for myself and ordered it. The romantic lace makes for a wonderful contrast to the sporty design, and for a casual and comfy look, I combined it with some simple skinny jeans, my bright Givenchy bag and the most comfortable High Heels ever made, my Valentino Rockstud Pumps.
Sweater: Rebecca Taylor
Jeans: Zara (Ähnliche hier)

Whenever I am in Paris, I am overwhelmed by the stunning architecture and the many beautiful things you can discover. Since I take hundreds of pictures a day and almost always have my mobile in my hands (which is why I need to recharge twice with my Mipow), it must be quite obvious that I am a dreamy tourist who is very much in love with Paris.
Well, here are some of the photos I took during my most recent trip, and I also added two pictures that were shot during the Dior Addict Event :-) I hope you enjoy them!
After launching the Over Rose Spring 2014 Collection earlier this year, the eagerly anticipated Ombre Couture line is the latest addition to the Givenchy eyeshadow range:
