My Look: Black Friday

My kind of Black Friday! Due to the current pandemic, I have a phobia of long lines, and too many people. I am a big fan of online shopping anyway which also avoids pressured decisions. Don’t be tempted too much just because it is marked down. Invest in classic pieces that you will treasure forever like this outfit I am wearing in today’s post.

My favorite offer today so far? MYTHERESA offers 30% off already marked down pieces. Click here to browse through the large selection.

My Look: Shape

At the moment I love outfits that are cozy, yet stylish. The same goes for my footwear. My new white platform boots are from the ECCO SHAPE collection, that stands for innovative comfort from morning into night. Thanks to their platform and comfy block heels, you’ll want to wear them every day, whether you’re walking for fitness or just need something chic at the office. A leather inlay sole delivers additional on-foot delight. For cushioning and rebound, they have a moulded midsole formed with advanced, soft polymers, while an anatomical last ensures the whole foot is in natural motion. Here you see me doing all sorts of activities, from climbing in my secret garden at home, to reading, dancing and going for a walk. Those boots are so versatile and can be easily styled up or down. If you don’t want to sacrifice comfort for style, you will love the ECCO SHAPE collection.

My look: Two-tone wool-blend cape by Alexander McQueen, Donna wrap-effect ruffled stretch-velvet bralette, and Samba ruffled stretch-velvet leggingsicon, both by Year of Ours, SHAPE Sculpted Motion boots in white by ECCO, black hat with ribbon, leather and chain bracelet, and waist bag with chains and pearls, all by CHANEL.

My Look: Muse

Happy Monday to all of you! Being in quarantine made me realize once more to be grateful for every day when you wake up healthy, for every moment you can spend with someone you love. In challenging times it’s more than important to focus on positive things, work on your goals and dreams. Take time for yourself to think! Become your own muse, your own motivation, and your source of inspiration. You don’t need anyone else, just yourself. This will also help you to gain confidence and most importantly self-love which will make you shine from the inside.

My look: Monogram long sleeve fitted shirt, and Onthego MM tote, both by Louis Vuitton, pleated grosgrain-trimmed striped cotton-seersucker midi skirticon by Thom Browne, leather exaggerated-sole sneakers by Alexander McQueen, pink hair clip by Gucci, Loulou heart-shaped sunglasses by Saint Laurent, 4810 hoop earrings in pink gold with diamonds by Montblanc, Panthère de Cartier Manchette 22mm 18-karat rose gold and diamond watchicon and love bracelets, all by Cartier.

My Look: Birthday Girl Night Fever

Last Thursday, I enjoyed my birthday so much and was surprised with a small gathering of friends at Kaufleuten in the evening. My outfit was about the peplum trend that is back and better than ever. The lace dress and biker jacket nip in at the waist before flaring out to a fluted peplum hem. I added some fun accessories for an eye-catching effect.

My look: Sarabande-lace V-neck peplum dress and dark blue leather peplum biker jacket, both by Alexander McQueen, washing-up liquid shoulder bagicon by Moschino, Studwrap leather pumpsicon by Valentino, and metal glass pearls leather earrings by CHANEL (Cruise 2020).

My Look: Call Me!

Call me a true fashion lover. This look has become one of my favorites of the season, exaggerated houndstooth pattern, combined with a logo print cape and my new Hermès Himalaya Birking bag which is considered the holy grail in a handbag collection. It is crafted from Nile crocodile hide. The name «Himalaya» is inspired by the delicate gradation of the colour that is resembling the majestic, snow-capped mountains. The process of dyeing the leather is exponentially more difficult as the shades lighten. It takes a lot of time and craftsmanship. I feel blessed to call one my own.

My look: Wool-jacquard cape by Gucci, bow-detailed houndstooth wool-blend sweater and houndstooth jacquard-knit shorts, both by Alexander McQueen, T-Rex shearling-lined logo-print coated canvas and leather ankle boots by Fendi, set of two silver-tone and crystal hair slides by Saint Laurent, sunglasses by CHANEL, rose diamond ring by Piaget and Himalaya Niloticus crocodile Birkin bag by Hermès.

The Modern Sneaker Sole of 2020

This season, when it comes to sneakerstransparent air bubble-infused soles are the latest hype. Transparency as a striking design detail has been trending now for a while but this year various fashion designers have been experimenting with the modern sole, releasing their own footwear renditions featuring trend, along with Nike who kickstarted the movement with its iconic Air Max silhouettes.

Personally speaking, I find Alexander McQueen‘s version the most appealing. The brand has released different silhouettes featuring the «bounce» sole in many versatile color combinations – the minimal silhouette with this bold detailing looks fabulous.

Magpie Bags

Bags that add extra sparkle – a dream for thieving magpies. High octane glamour is 100% in and this party season crystals are absolutely trending. From subtle jewel-embellished accents, architectural pieces, to fully crystallised mini shoppers, designers have been experimenting with sparkle and it couldn’t have dropped in a better season.

For the day, combine your crystal dream on the more androgynous side – think jeans with an oversized roll neck and a crystal shopper, or masculine tailoring with a sparkly architectural piece. Opposites can attract, you know.
