Today I dedicate my post to all of my beloved handbags and what they always carry for me.
Thank your keeping my stuff, thank you for always let my outfit transform into something special, thank you for make me feeling head over heels when I buy a new one of you, thank you for let me find my stuff at least in 10 minutes, thank you for being always and eye-catcher AND thank you for always being a good invest.
As all girls will know our handbags keep all the small or big things we need for surviving during the day.
Today I show what’s in my bag!!
Bag: Prada pony-hair leopard, the bag is almost vintage! but I still love it and leopard has it’s revival
Purse: I change every 3 or 4 months my purse. At the moment I’m using a Celine Purse in smooth calfleather in black. I’m totally into this purs it has the most soft leather ever what brings some bitterness it’s really proning to scratches and drag marks.
Beauty: I don’t have an extra beauty-pouch. Of course I own different ones but I never use it. All I take with me is my lipstick from BITE, mascara from Guerlain and my perfume Chanel Chance which has a pocket format. So for these three things I don’t need an extra cosmetic-pouch.
My oldschool timer from Chanel: Although I have a smartphone and tablet but I love to use my classy, oldschool agenda where I write all my appointments down.
My Phone. I use an Apple iPhone 5S which I really like a lot! The camera is amazing! My iPhone-case was bought in New York but you can find similar HERE
My tablet is an Apple iPad mini. I like the size of the iPad mini! actually I never thought that I would like it more than my normal iPad! but it’s pretty awesome!
I never leave the house without sunnies! Here you can see my Celine ’Graphic’ glasses.
My keys , have all a huge keyring so it’s easier to find them in my bag
At the moment I read this little book, called ‘Das Butterkremherz’ (the buttercream heart) from Dorothy Parker. It’s a sweet homage to NYC and it’s society exaggerated narrated and for all you fell in love with this amazing bright light city is this the perfect companion.
I was participating the Mercedes Benz Fashion Days in Zurich and as always I spent a really good time.
Friday I attended the international shows, where Designers like Marc Stone and Pepa Salzar showed there Spring Summer 2014 collection.
Saturday was all about Swiss Designers and so with this post I want to highlight two swiss Designers. Perret & Schaad and Asandri. I really loved the collections!
Asandri was very classy. Inspired by an journey through Apulia, with a lot of material and pattern mixes, wonderful mediterranean styles for which I can’t wait to wear for summer.
From Asandri to Perret & Schaad, the two Designers, who I saw the first time at Berlin Fashion week last Winter, got inspired by the reflections and geometric forms of a booming city. The fabrics were shiny leather, flowing silk and reflect perfectly their idea.
see here Perret& Schaad
My look’s main-piece was a amazing beautiful coat from Marina Rinaldi in navy blue with faux fur applications, unfortunately it looks black here on the official pictures, which was the reason to show you a pre-look where you can see the navy color (sorry about the mess in background, I’m already preparing christmas-presents ), black skinny pants also from Marina Rinaldi, a nice top from ASOS curve in navy blue cashmere and black crepe hem, because I loved the black fabric so much I decided to turn the back to the front . My statement bracelet I bought at Zara. The leopard-look shoes are from Jimmy Choo called Empire and my Hermes Birkin Bag.
Pictures were taken by melplosive & official photos will follow.
For the makeup, the Make-up Artist used the MAC Dangerous Cuvee with is an amazing waterproof eye shadow which added a nice metal look together with the MAC black kohl. As mascara I use always Guerlain Noir G wich I personally think is the best! Nail polish is from ChinaGlaze “liquid leather” and Topcoat from butterlondon.
The Make-up and Hair I chose a chignon at a side and a soft smokey eyes makeup. My make-up & hair was made by the Make-up Artist Sarbina Villa.
One week left and my birthday is inexorably coming . 29 is actually not a special number but it’s the last before coming 30! I’m not scared at all of the 30ties. I guess the years between the 30ties and 40ties are the best anyway .
1. I love to get the chance to have a look behind the scenes of Carine Roitfelds work and by the way it’s an awesome made Hardcover-Book!
2. I guess I do not have to say a lot about the Saint Laurent Tote! Black, finest leather, big sized Bag! I really do want a new bag were I can put everything inside – like my MacBook, Timer, iPad Mini, Magazines, Beauty-Stuff etc.pp
3.I’m redecorating every 6 months. I love the taupe-color for the bedroom! The standart-lamb of Heathfield&CO is just amazing!
4. ‘Diamonds are the girls best friend’ and so the earrings of Marina Rinaldi are!
5. Like every girl I’m addicted to shoes! The two-toned Pumps of Saint Laurent are one of my favorites. Two-tones are still missing in my shoe-wardrobe!
6. Now something technical. As a fashion-photgrapher, editor and blogger I need! and like! technical stuff as well! And after almost 5 quite amazing years with my MacBook Pro from Apple I feel that he is slowly but surely going into retirement.
7. The big WOW! I’ve seen AND touched already this Cashmere-Mink coat of Marina Rinaldi. This coat is like a dream come true!!! I would never take it off.
8. As a confessed nail-polish addicted I need to have the Chanel limited editon! Chanel ‘Cosmic’. Perfect for having cosmic birthday-wishes <3
I guess Kim K. showed us all the last days in Paris, during Paris Fashionweek that coats are a must!
I collected some top favorites for this fall/winter.
Personally I still do not have a chosen a favorite yet. I’m really into the camel cashmere coat by Max Mara but there also so many other which I would like, but I guess after my post I will make up my mind again
The Coat from Zara has two good arguments: a good shape and a resonable price.
Especially if you are going to look for a coat which you want to wear only one season .
This amazingly nice coat from Jill Sander Navy is one of my TOP FAVORITES! I love the simplicity and of course the Quality. The Belt looses up the masculine cut and gives a feminine Style
The Coat from Burberry Prorsum is for the Wildcats among us. I guess I do not have to mention that this coat is absolutely stunning in material, quality and look. It is just not for all of us! Personally I guess I would not wear Leopard but it here I would make an exception. The two-tone is just perfect and reduces the typical “too much” look.
Let’s continue with some color. This coat from French Connection is an eye-catcher this red-orange look brave! But don’t mind although it’s a tough color you can wear it really classy with almost everything. Just take care of different red-tones.
This pinstriped Model from Zara is out-and-out a classy one! Personally, I would wear this coat more business or casual-like.
All in all you can’t go wrong with that one! Also the price is fine!
This cool slouchy coat from ASOS belongs also to my TOP FAVORITE list. Although I’m not into light grey so much I love this coat. I like the oversized, cool look. The material is really comfy and the price absolutely affordable!
This cool oversized model from Chalayan is inspired from Menswear coats. What I love about the coat are the proportions. An oversized cut to an tighter thigh. Perfect for wearing skinny Jeans.
This cool contrast sleeve-coat from ASOS is a hot piece. The masculine cut and the two-tone gives the coat a really cool style and thats maybe the only loss this coat has. Maybe it’s too cool to be an all-rounder.
Another cool oversized-coat spotted at ASOS from Les Prairies de Paris. It’s already low in stock! If this is your favorite better catch it quickly!
This coat is in comparison with the ASOS-Coat before a classy one with an modern oversize-cut.
I guess you have now some ideas about fall’s-must-have COATS!
Personally, I do have my favorites ! but haven’t chosen yet.
I love the diversity leather can offer especially this fall.
It’s not longer a cliché Hard-Rocker Look or named as a kind of rock-chic-look. Now leather is showing us more skills. It shows up in a total classy way!
Why Leather is for me the new Denim: Simply it’s a must. First of all you can’t go without leather anymore this fall, neither faux-leather nor real leather. No cutbacks anymore. It’s allowed to be worn as your denim-jean. Everywhere and anywhere.
Over the rocker image! It comes in classy shaped Etui- Dresses, sweet Peplum Tops, hip Caps, hot Shades, 50tie-styled Jackets, delicate chemieses and Turtle-Necks in different colors and all time favorite- black!
Get caught by these smooth, formerly hard afflicted material.
