The Marshmallow dress

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Helena Christensen wears a gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs simple and feminine eyelet dress from the spring summer 2012 collection. Marc calls this colour “marshmallow white”. The name is fitting for this cute style of the dress.   Fabrics  like eyelet and waffle are a perfect match for marshmallow white dresses.
I’m wearing a marshmallow white eyelet dress by Max & Co in Porto Cervo, Italy.

Mint nails and pink espadrille flats – what goes better with a marshmallow dress? Nail colour “Nouvelle Vague” by Chanel.

ZARA’s Yellow Blazer

Blazer / Jackets/ Rebel/ Wardrobe

While perusing through the amazing photos – from street style to editorial and runway – we noticed an overarching theme of yellow looks. See all of the amazing outfits!

I got more and more inspired by one color: yellow. I can’t wait any longer to shop my yellow pick. Let’s look at ZARA:

Wonderful or not, the Yellow ZARA BLazer?! I think contrast is key, so make sure to temper your sunny hues with complementary colors, like black and white.

Summer-is-back

Here comes the Sun!

Marlene Dietrich’s ABC

Movie & Books

Für mich kann es gar nicht genug Bücher über Hollywood und Mode geben und leider gibt es in deutscher Sprache längst nicht soviel Literatur wie in Englisch. Deshalb war ich heute besonders happy als ich das kleine Taschenbuch von Marlene Dietrich “Das ABC meines Lebens” gesehen habe. Gott sei dank, hat dtv den Klassiker, welcher bereits 1961 bei Doubleday in New York erschien, wieder neu verlegt – I LOVE IT!!!

Highlights aus dem ABC der Dietrich:

MODE:

“Nicht ihr blindlings in jede dunkle Gasse folgen. Immer daran denken, dass man kein Mannequin ist, für das die Mode kreiert wurde.”

NAGELLACK:

“Dunkler Nagellack ist unelegant”

(1961 gab es noch nicht Rouge Noir von Chanel und sie hätte ihn geliebt!)

NERZ (MANTEL):

“Ein amerikanisches Symbol….Symbole sind notwendig.”

SCHMINKE:

“Wie schade, dass die meisten von uns sie brauchen.”

SCHUHE:

“Schuhe sind wichtiger als Kleider.”

BILLIG:

“Billiges sieht nicht teuer aus.”

ELEGANZ:

“Heute selten zu finden. Frauen wird nicht mehr das Gefühl und das Verständnis dafür beigebracht, und darum fehlt ihnen auch der Wunsch, sie sich anzueignen.”

HAPPY END:

“Ich liebe Happy Ends.”

Italy Travel Style

Blazer / Jackets/ Coats/ Romantique/ Skirts/ Trousers/ Wardrobe
It’s Sardinia for me the second time round as we leave dreary London behind for a little bit of springy sunshine in one of Italy’s most beautiful spots.
On arrival in Olbia, I’m wearing a silk A-line skirt by Stefanel  in one of my favourite colour combinations – turquoise and brown. A light trench coat is a safe option for a spring trip – after all it can rain in the Mediterranean too! Nude ballet pumps from Pretty Ballerina will fit with any colour packed in my suitcase.  The light pink straw bag is from Sofia C.
 Mummy Romantique  is wearing a white, ruffled blouse by Airfield, lemon yellow handbag by Mulberry and quilted ballet pumps by Pretty Ballerina.

French Fragrance Lessons

Beauty/ Rebel

Women in France don’t just love fragrance, they can’t imagine living without it. In France, the higher class of woman, the more she wants her perfume to be subtle. So I guess at my heart I’m a French Woman because I never go out without perfume.

The Sent you dab defines who you are. I wear only classical French perfume and they has become very important in my life.

I WEAR:

Y by Yves Saint Laurent and Miss Dior Originale and the French message behind is:

“I belong to a great family. I come from style. I wear the same fragrance as the most stylish people.”

Y was launched in 1964 and Yves Saint Laurent said that when he introduced Y:

“Women rarely expressed their sexuality in public. They were more practical in their approach. More inhibited in their desires. Now, a woman wants more — a man wants more, too.”

Y is a perfect office Chypre Fruity fragrance for women.

Christian Dior intended his first scent to complement his famed New Look 1947.

Miss Dior is one of the few chypres I like. The soft, not-sweet base, the intriguing heart notes, and the mysterious opening notes captivated me from the start.

Miss Dior Originale 2011 bottle

The French Fragrance Lessons:

1. Do not wear the same perfume as your mother.

2. Never leave home without it.

3. Never ask a French Woman what perfume she is wearing.

Eye Poppers

Beauty/ Romantique

Today I want to share with you my favourite eyeshadows which work fantastically on blue and brown eyed girls.  As with all beauty products, you have to try them  to find the best products that suits your type. When you’re young and your eyeslids are not creasy yet, you have to have a little fun and try out different colours!

I love the buttery soft texture of French Cosmetics company Sisley eyeshadows, hence I have three colours from that brand. They are so easy to blend and you can mix and match them with each other. I usally take the darker colour, blend it up to my crease and then apply the one of the lighter colours over the darker shade .They can be applied wet or dry.

Taaa, daaa, here are my favourite colours:

Sisley Toffee – A delicious red-brown colour. The texture has the slightest pearly, satiny finish without being too obvious (no glitter!). It’s a lovely neutral colour that I often mix with my other colours from Sisley.

Sisley Quartz – Same silky texture, Quartz is a neutral taupe, foolproof and great for every day.

Sisley Mango – I usually look sick when wearing orange eyeshadow, but this shade is different. It’s a peachy colour but not too orange or warm. Again, I mix it with “Toffee” for some added definition.

Bourjois eyeshadow 15 – This cupcake pink  from the Sweet Paris summer collection looks brighter than it is. It actually is a very light pink and I also use it as a blusher!

French Beauty Marion Cottillard certainly knows how to make her eyes sparkle – toffee brown eyeshadow and rosy lips – parfait!

Orange and Tangerine Trend

Rebel/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

This just in: tangerine is 2012’s colour and anything that’s bright and bold and zinging. It seems orange has its place in every trend.

Orange can be a freaky trend to try, as it doesn’t look good on everyone. If orange isn’t so great on you, then wear it away from your face. Try a pair of orange chinos – I’m obssesd to tangerine pants a must have for fashionistas – if you’re feeling brave, or keep it simple with accessories -lipstick, sunglasses, bags, shoes, what ever you like.

I WEAR: tangerine Pants of Schneiders Made in Austria, green Allude  Top, black Velvet Blazer

I WEAR: Tangerine Cahmere summer sweater and Céline Pants

Love my tangerine pants with black

Colour combo: tangerine and nude

Get more inspiration for orange pants and be bold to try this fashion trend.

A tangerine vintage queen – I photographed this dress at an exhibition in London but can’t remember on the designer – I guess YSL or Givenchy from the 6o’s.

Treasure Yourself

Movie & Books/ Rebel

Heute hatte ich einen schlechten Tag, ich habe eine berufliche Absage bekommen, wo ich mir ganz gute Chancen ausrechnete. Also schlenderte ich in die nächste Buchhandlung, um für eine Weile in der Esoterikabteilung zu stöbern und siehe da: Mirranda Kerr – Australische Superwonderwoman – hat einen spirtuellen Lebensratgeber geschrieben, wer hätte das gedacht!

Als ich auch noch per Zufall folgende Seite aufschlug und ich bin sehr abergläubisch, was solche Zeichen betrifft:

“Ich erlebe immer wieder, dass eine berufliche Absage oder sonstige Zurückweisung sich im Nachhinein als Segen erweist, weil das Universum etwas Besseres für mich auf Lager hat. Ich versuche, es einfach als weiteren Schritt auf dem Weg zur Erfüllung meiner Bestimmung zu betrachten.”

..habe ich das Buch gekauft!

Powder Pink pants

Blazer / Jackets/ Romantique/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

I’m more of a dress / skirt kinda gal as you know. So when I wear trousers, they have to be feminine: They either are of a pretty pastel colour or have to have a delicate detail.

I’m wearing powder pink pastel cotton trousers by Stefanel from the current season. The colour is understated, perfect for work or everyone who doesn’t like the current sweet pastel / bold colour trend.  I rocked them with the essential leather jacket and a stripey mariniere shirt.

Kate Moss keeps her cool in light pink trousers and a black shirt.
