Winter Warm: Boho and ZigZag

Two very artsy looks – office meets new years reception or gallery openings.

Zwei Outfits mit einem künstlerischen Touch – Karos fürs Büro und der goldene Rock für Anlässe wie Ausstellungseröffnungen oder Neujahrsempfänge.

I love the green tartan dress for work. I have shown it on the blog for Christmas and in Spring. A very fitting colour for landscacpe architecture. Combined with the zigzag mock-Missoni blouse it is a fun low-key option for meetings. The accessories are a nod to my love for folkloristic clothing – this time of Eastern European heritage.

Ich liebe das grüne Schottenkarokleid, zu Weihnachten oder auch im Frühling. Grün passt auch sehr gut zur Landschaftsarchitektur. Kombiniert mit dem von Missoni-inspiriertem Zickzack-Muster ist es perfekt für einfache Besprechungen. Trachten und Folkloresachen finde ich grossartig – wie in diesem Fall Dinge, der osteuropäische Touch.

Look number two is seriously artsy. The golden skirt has been on my blog a few times as well. Low-key or dressed up. I love it around Christmas and New Year’s eve. With it’s fake leather like gold-coated and quilted material it isn’t really a summer skirt.

Der zweite Look ist etwas ungewöhlicher. Der goldene Rock war schon einige Male auf meinem Blog – runtergetuned oder auch festlich. Ich trage den Rock sehr gerne um Weihnachten und Neujahr herum. Das liegt aber unter anderem auch an dem geoldbeschichteten Kunstlederartigem abgestepptem Material – das ist einfach nicht so nice im Sommer.

I love the folksy touch of the earrings, the bracelet and the scarf.

Ich mag den Folklore-Look der Ohrringe, des Armbandes und des Tuchs.

So which look do you prefer?

On the Go: 50s Boheme

A bit behind the schedule and because of that just on the go: my interpretation of a FrenchCurves theme Boheme with a 1950s approach.  Was too late and didn’t fill out the form  yet for the beautiful Gaëlle from the Curvy and the Curly Closet and her wonderful challenge FrenchCurves. English only today.

#GermanCurves – mein liebster Sommerlook

…and the winner is: es ist das Kleid, was ich schon für #GermanCurves für das Einläuten des Frühlings anhatte. Und neulich bei #FrenchCurves für „La Dolce Vita“. Aber es ist halt auch eines meiner liebsten (Sommer-) Kleider. Vor allem mit dem tollen Leinenunterrock von PUG drunter. Heute dann mal mit blankem Arm und mit Bolero. Genau umgekehrt wie man das meint. Erst war ich ohne unterwegs und habe dann den Bolero drübergezogen. Wegen der Sonne!

Hach, ich liebe dieses Outfit!

  Mit den Mädels, ein bisschen boho, ein bisschen Retro…

Adventskalender: OOTD Downtime

I love this dress. Or rather the idea of it. The pattern of the skirt reminds me of Orla Kiely or marimekko patterns. And yet it is good old Marks and Spencer who made it. It is a lovely dress. Not sure when it was in the shops. I got it on Ebay, this summer. Three quarter sleeves, jersey top and a lined kneelength polycotton skirt. Fun. Easy to wear.

So where is the catch? The waist is a bit too high for my liking. So I got myself a vest. That little trick lowers the waistline to where mine actually is. Ha! Got that on Ebay, too. The little picture on the right shows something else that should look ace with the rest. In theory. Not so chuffed with the look on on screen. Prooves, be your own editor. I much prefer it with the black scarf. Makes it less busy.

The delightful 1950s hat is from my favorite vintage place in town. Though vintage is a bit of a mouthful. They are an indoor fleamarket/ second hand/ bric-a-brac shop. A treasure trove. The real deal, not a glossy vintage boutique. Back to the half hat – my cousin and I saw it together on one of our rarehopping sprees – and though she saw it first, she let me have it. And now with the new haircut it finally looks really cute. And yes, it matches my persian lamb handwarmer/ handbag really well. Love the mixed materials – felt and fur (the latter has to be vintage though). 

2014-12-14 m+s summerdress Kopiedress: Marks and Spencer (summer, not quite sure when)
tights: as above
vest/ waistcoat: Evans (again, not quite sure which collection)
black scarf: Primark
white fake fur scarf, armwarmers; H&M (the armwarmers are 2012/2013, the scarf 2004)
shoes: Deichmann (the ballet flats, too)
hat + brooch: vintage

Some you have seen it before – but here is my handwarmer/ handbag again! Original 1950s. Mint condition when I got it. Like many other things this was kept for good. And at the end of its original owners lifetime was never worn. So next time you think something it too fancy to wear, think again.
