German weather gives us nothing but grey on grey these times… Due to this fact, our dressing mood reduces to oversized knitted sweaters and boots in all variations. I am in love with this grey and white one, that saves me from freezing. Coat – Mango Sweater – Zara Boots – Zara
This week it is already time for my next stop: Amsterdam. I have always wanted to live some time in this wonderful city and now the time has come that my dream comes true. Amsterdam is full of creative, easy-going people and offers a perfect working environment for me to pursue my studies. I am looking forward to sharing some insider tips and streetstyle from the city with you!
This year, the Lavera Showfloor started with an opening show with prominent guests like Elisa Sednaoui, Elisabetta Canalis and Evelyn Hall. The opening show featured Danish designer Ann Wiberg, showing beautiful her “trash couture” made out of antique fabrics, laces, beads and embroideries. The entire collection is sewn in her own atelier in Copenhagen and is destined to minimize waste and give a second life to pre-worn pieces of fabrics. Ann Wiberg is one of few designers who offer individualized services for designing a unique gown for a special event, wedding etc. Her couture is both “poetic and contemporary”.
Fashion Week. Again. We have to be really honest now: we don’t have that much time to visit all those shows and events which we are invited to. This is because we both work and we both study. Which means time is limited. We are always happy about every invitation but especially during the Fashion Week in January we are so busy with studying, working on projects (blog, work and dancing) that we don’t find the time for a 10 minute show. And most of all we won’t be able to make it to an after-party since we have to get-up early in the morning. However this Wednesday I took the chance to visit the Loft of the Blogger Bazaar team in Berlin Mitte. It was absolutely stunning. The location (a Penthouse located at Rosenthaler Platz) was flawless and the interior was divine. Plus the girls of Blogger Bazaar had put together an amazing line-up of partners. Bumble and Bumble, Smashbox, Zign, Olympus, Filippa K. – just to name a few. And everyone was there …
Berlin has a new hotspot – the Grace Bar and Restaurant at the Hotel Zoo. The Grace opened its doors 10. January 2015 and offers a “Drinking and Dining” concept that unites foreign and traditional flavors into an exceptional culinary experience. Apart from the superior quality of Grace’s food and drinks, the location has a unique atmosphere and interior design, created by well-known designer Dayna Lee from New York/ LA. We can warmly recommend the excellent “Whiskey Sour” or “Wild Berry Punch” (non-alcoholic and made with fresh wild berries). check availability and book a room here Hotel Zoo Kurfürstendamm 25 10719 Berlin What To Wear to this location
Some days ago we enjoyed some quality time together with coffee in Potsdam before I will head to my next study destination. There is still a lot to organize but it feels so good to be home for some days. Coat – Cortefiel Boots – Zara Pullover – H&M
We are always happy to report to you about innovative projects and new approaches to the fashion world. The Abury concept is such an amazing new project that is both inspiring and beautiful. Abury has originated a project that one the one hand supports local craftsmen communities in Morocco and Ecuador and on the other hand supports young, emerging fashion designers who seek to gain experience and prove their creative talent. For this project Abury will send two upcoming designers to work on a two to three month basis with local craftsmen communities and produce a small collection of high-quality bags. Their motto is “Inspire Change Through Design”. You can find all the details here. If you are a designer make sure to apply for this contest.
For a girl, what she is wearing underneath is as important as the outfit she is wearing. In my opinion, every girl should have a healthy lingerie obsession, since there is nothing that makes us feel more beautiful as the right underwear. In this case, I had a weak moment at Intimissimi where I found these lovely pieces.
Yesterday we attended a second Blogger-Breakfast with Abury together. It was fun to meet the team again and hear what is going on with their idea – huge exciting things are coming-up for them and we are super happy to be one of the first ones to know. Along with this occasion we took the chance to snap some new outfit pictures. The weather is still pretty nasty in Berlin (crazy storm going on outside). But still at least it’s not too cold.
The Grand Café in Oxford is a place I can warmly recommend. We went there for breakfast and were just stunned by the beautiful, opulence interior. During the day they serve breakfast, lunch, cream teas and high teas. In the evening you will be able to enjoy some cocktails with locals and University students. According to Samuel Pepys’ Diary (1650), The Grand Café is the site of the first coffee house in England and now an Oxford institution. In the pictures you can see the Scrambled eggs on toast (£4.95), the Grand English breakfast (£8.50) and two Lattes (each £3.25). It was all absolutely delicious!
