Shopping in Berlin: Schee

I love to discover new little boutiques and shops in my neighborhood. One store that I recently stumbled across is Schee, located in Bleibtreustraße. So we went to check it out last weekend. The store is a lovely mix of interior and decoration accessories, cards and books, prints and textiles. In my opinion one of the addresses to go for when you’re searching for a present for a friend or family member! We really liked how elaborate and carefully selected the selection of items was – every piece was special! They also have another store in Berlin located at Rosenthaler Straße (close to the underground station Rosenthaler Platz, Mitte). We definitely want to visit that one too. Schee Bleibtreustr. 48 10623 Berlin

Spring Trend Watch II

Embroided Jeans They’re everywhere – whether Zara, Mango, H&M or the high-class gucci version: Embroided jeans are the new cool. I remember when I was a child and my mom patched up my jeans (which were dirty and had holes in them from playing outside) with some colorful flowers, mickey mouses… Now, jeans are more colorful than ever and that’s definitely a trend we’re in love with! Off-Shoulder Off-Shoulder tops, dresses and blouses just give a certain lightness to every outfit – therefore they have become absolute it-pieces for the summer. I like that they embrace shoulders and neckline for a change instead of cleavage – and that makes them not less sexy! Chokers Chokers always had something sexual and wicked about them but now they’re celebrating a comeback. Day and night – they can be combined with everyday outfits and simple t-shirts as well as sexy evening dresses.

Spring Trend Watch

It’s a new season, hence time to talk about some recent trends – we chose five trends that we consider hot right now. What are your favorites and which ones don’t you like at all? Let’s talk! Bomber Jackets To be honest, they have been around for quite a while now – still, we totally love them! They’re not only transporting us back into times of the Grease movie and coca cola advertisements but are a quick way to add some cool to every outfit. Fishnet Tights Long they’ve been associated more with CanCan dancers in Parisian night clubs than high fashion –  now they’re everywhere. Underneath ripped boyfriend jeans, suede skirts or mini dresses. See-through tops with flower embroidery Valentino was first, all others followed – now, black see-through tops with colorful flower embroidery have trickled down to commercial clothing companies. Plain T-shirts To be honest: not really a new trend but still omnipresent as ever – a plain white, black or striped t-shirt. We love, that it’s such a simple piece of clothing …

Light Blue

While taking these pictures we were once again reminded that we live in a city where rain is inevitable. So we headed to Walter-Benjamin-Platz, a square named after the philosopher Walter Benjamin. The adjoining Leibniz colonnades offer the right protection for some outfit snaps (and yes, we have taken here some pictures before. Take a look here and here). The light blue jacket is from the current Zara collection and also available in a light pink pastel shade. A friend of mine wore it and I instantly fell in love with it. So, as soon as I got home I ordered it online and got it delivered a few days later. I actually didn’t think of really buying it in the end but somehow it was just too gorgeous to send back.

Gift Guide

Holiday time after holiday time… For some reason, there are always some wardrobe standards that remain the same every season. Almost every time there is a sequin dress, there will most definitely be something velvet and of course the Christmas color red should never miss! That’s why this year’s gift guide is probably more for us, but why shouldn’t we indulge a little ourselves as well! Happy Holidays!

Pulse Points

If you are applying a fragrance you want to feel good and others should notice it otherwise its a waste of time and money. Perfume can have a powerful effect on your confidence and mood so it should work to its maxim. Pulse points, or anywhere you can find a heartbeat are traditionally recommended as spots to apply a fragrance on. The majority of those physical locations are linked with kissing potential and therefore loaded with a certain seduction level. These points include for example the base of the throat, the inside of the wrists and the decollate, making the fragrance narrative both logical and utterly romantic with her code. Christmas is probably the best season of the year to give away a little scented bottle. We can highly recommend the Hugo Boss The Scent fragrance for her (seen in these pictures) and him. Both offer the right amount of seduction and feel-good-mood you are instantly hocked.

Wiesn Style Guide

It’s that time of the year again… No, not christmas, or Halloween, but one of the oldest German traditions – Oktoberfest! Nowadays, the Wiesn is not only celebrated in Bavaria but all over the country. Especially in Berlin there are numerous Oktoberfest events and all the cool Berlin girls are suddenly into heart-shaped clutches, cute embroideries and dirndl dresses… Crazy no less! We have to admit: we will be putting on a dirndl and dancing to some folk music this year too! Because it’s fun and some traditions are worthy to be celebrated. This year we will attend the Wiesn at Café am neuen See, one of Berlin’s most beautiful locations. You have to buy your ticket in advance, but it’s totally worth it. Check out the FB event… And see you there! Of course, every Wiesn party needs a proper Wiesn outfit. That’s why we were heading to  Zalando and found some beautiful dirndl dresses and accessoires! We can only recommend heading to the page, maybe you still need some last minute Wiesn piece …

Casual Sophistication

Last weeks have been full with work – I have been working on a new project that I am more than excited about but that is surely demanding as well! We will tell you more about it soon. Until then, we find time to catch up between work meetings or have a short coffee break together. Shop this style
