Oscars 2015

One passion we both share is to annually watch The Oscars with pleasure. We love to watch the ceremony but most importantly the beautiful gowns the celebrities are wearing. This year there were many gorgeous dresses that resembled modern princesses. Rosé, burgundy red, white and black were the dominant colors. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees, we are looking forward to next year’s ceremony!

Saving Memories

For photo junkies like us the digital age is both fascinating as well as slightly terrifying. We all know there is one major downside of digital photos – once your storage breaks or any other technical issue occurs, all pictures are gone, some forever. That is why we both have a set rule: from time to time we remind ourselves to print out our most beloved pictures and we also find much joy in designing photo albums. There is nostalgic and solid about an actual photo album that you can hold in your hands. It is a memory that lasts and always a nice present for our loved ones. One service we can only recommend is the CEWE photo world. The page offers an easy way to design and print your photo albums online and you will get them delivered to your doorstep in only three days. Check out all the different products they offer and find a way to secure your memories, you will be grateful for it one day. With friendly support of CEWE

Dustin Yellin: Psychogeographies @ New York City Ballet

Sometimes, we come across artworks that are quite fascinating so we want to share them with you. One of these is Dustin Yellin’s exhibition at the Lincoln Center: Psychogeographies @ New York City Ballet. I think the exhibition is absolutely unique and captures a dancer’s movements but also incorporates a dancer’s feelings and mind during a jump, turn or any other dance move. More information here and here.

Haute Couture Week in Paris

The Haute Couture week took place in Paris during the last January days. And once again it took our breaths away. The creations really are masterpieces and unique works of art. In this post we like to share with you our favorite shows and what we can learn from them. Giambattista Valli Probably one of our favorite collections of the couture week. The colour palette got us right away as well as the romantic ballet skirts (reminding us of the ballet Giselle) and all that organza which has been used. Favorite detail: the black headpieces with a bow and mesh. Dior The venue of the show is getting a 10/10 from us. Electric, playful and so fascinating. We simply couldn’t avoid all those instagram snaps which were dazzling around our feed. The collection? Playful skirts, sequins, jumpsuits, rain caps and skin-tied over-knee boots. Sensual and yet erotic with those shoes! Chanel Thinking off a huge botanic garden with crystal flowers, jeweled insects, huge plants and a crazily happy coloring? Then welcome to the Chanel couture show. King Karl did it again – he surpassed all his …

Baroque Moments

We both are jewelry lovers which is why we are more than happy to share these delicate pieces with you. Finding the right accessories is not easy and it can take years until you have found the appropriate jewelry fitting your style and your mood. Choosing jewelry everyday can be really nerve-racking and somehow you get used to the same necklace, the same pair of earrings or the same bracelet. A routine kicks in. Therefore it is really important to add the one or other new piece to your treasure box so you can sometimes get rid of your normal pattern.

Valentine’s Day Shopping Guide

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and therefore it’s time to get the right details. Either you can see this as a shopping guide for the ladies or as a present list for the boys. Whatever you need it to be, take it as an assistance for buying the right pieces. Every woman wants to feel sexy and confident. But this does not start from outside. What you wear underneath is as important as your daily outfit. And who is going to watch Fifty Shades of Grey btw.? Everyone is crazy about it but no one really says that they read the books. We have absolutely fallen for the soundtrack of the movie.
