After weeks of heavy rain in Germany, we finally got the summer, today! Let’s celebrate the sun, blue sky and star print denim!
The “stiletto star-print” jeans by Current/Elliottist is the most wanted skinny in terms of printed jeans. Everyone have been spotted wearing their star spangle jeans all around town. Fashion retailer Primark recognized this fact and voilá for 16 EURO you also can afford celeb’s favorite printed denim.

The patriotic print, which would fuse perfectly into your Fourth of July style, is so versatile it will instantly jazz up any ensemble.

Luckily for us girls, heels don’t have to measure at a towering 12 cm. A cute and comfortable midi heel gives us just enough lift for that feminine feline walk without stumbling uncomfortably.
The square block midi heel nails the 60s trend perfectly, mix it with cool metallics and you are bang on trend!

Are you a fan of midi heels are do you prefer classic flats? Or maybe you are a rebel heel lover?! (Rebel Heel = from 10 cm / 5 inches high onwards )
I’ve just came back from holiday after 8 days of sun and play in the Spanish sun near Malaga in Andalusia . A cheap and cheerful stay to recharge the batteries and take a break from London’s hectic and sometimes exhausting vibe. As usual, I packed in a last minute rush and threw random things in the suitcase, hoping I can mix and match when I’m there. Like on most holidays, I did take back a few pieces I didn’t wear. An outfit I found myself reaching for again and again is the 60s Polka Dot A-line dress. It’s the perfect holiday key piece as it’s uncomplicated but chic, easy and casual but not sloppy:
The A-line mini dress is my favourite dress shape as it’s so flattering and sexy. The graphic black and white pattern are great to show off a tan and it nails the monochrome trend as seen at Moschino SS 2013 at the same time.
My favourite accessoires with this dress are white sunglasses, creme coloured patent leather mini bag with chain strap and white / pink degrade wayfarers.
My creme coloured mini bag in patent leather is from MiSaKo. A handbag high street brand from Barcelona who designs amazingly trendy and classic handbags for affordable prices.

London and my desk are a million miles away!

I’m especially in love with the checkered looks!
For the Spring 2013 season, the most obsessed-over and photographed items are undoubtedly the checkerboard patterned dresses designed by Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton. So how did these Louis Vuitton checkered dresses become one of the most photographed pieces of the season?
To start, the pattern is incredibly accessible and simple. It affords the wearer the appearance of making a high-fashion statement, but in an incredibly classic way.
How to get Louis Vuitton’s Checks if you having a small budget like me? Hunting for ZARA’s yellow/white checkered top it’s so fun and playfull, combine to a classic pencil skirt and colourful heels.
I’m lost in the 60’s, I’m feeling so Mad Men…so, Christina Hendricks…
White cotton pique dress from Max & Co
After all the colour pops of autumn and pattern clashes, I’m quite happy to slip into a calming, minimalstic white dress. For summer 2013, most designers opted for innocent whites: Romantic in broderie and lace as seen at Stella McCartney and Valentino or structured and sporty as seen at Chloe. A LWD Little White dress is a summer staple.
I like white teamed with simplicity: Above I am wearing a white dress made from waffle Piqué for a structured shape and white piping paired with a black grosgrain belt. White is like a canvas so you can play with colourful belts, blazers and shoes or stay in the white colour family for a cool white on white style.

What are your favourite Summer Whites? Are you a romantic lace girl, a classic shift dress gal or a sporty Chloe-esque fashionista?

Accessoires can make or break an outfit. And detachable collars are having a huge moment. They come in a variety of fabrics and textures: Bejewelled, in lace, with pearls or in sequins. Great to dress up a casual jumper for example.
If too much bling is not your thing, than the crisp white mock shirt I am wearing from COS with a scalloped collar is for you! I’m absolutely in love with it as I can pair with a dress or a jumper and the outfit always looks pulled together. The minimalist, clean white collar makes me look fresh even when teamed with colours that usually make me look washed out (like the grey you see in the dress).
I’m wearing: Collar from COS, Drop waist dress with silk pleats from Stefanel, pointy flats by BCBG and woven leather hobo handbag by Falorni.
Rock an LBD with a jewelled collar or clash jewels with a casual jumper. The COS mock shirt looks like a bib and I needed a SA to explain to me how it works until the penny dropped.

My black dress is by Italian dress expert Max & Co
“When French designer Christian Dior launched his groundbreaking A-Line collection in spring 1955, a new silhouette was born, one that has become a fashion staple ever since. Dior called it the A-Line because his dresses were narrow and fitted at the top, flaring out from the bust or waist in a straight line to the hem just above the knee, in a shape reminiscent of the letter “A”. Vogue called it the most wanted silhouette in Paris”. (source book: “Bikinis, Bell-bottoms and Little Black dresses – 70 Great Fashion classics” by Kate Mulvey)
Every woman has at least one Little Black Dress in her wardrobe. I have a few for several occasions. The A-Line Mini dress is the perfect shape for my pear shaped body: It hides my tummy and bum but accentuates my legs and smaller upper body. The shape is clean and simple, with black contrast piping and a fluttery silk skirt for some girly appeal.
White lasercut bag from Alchimia. The perforated leather looks like lace, love the effect!
During the day, this is the perfect casual yet elegant day dress paired with flats and a big shopper tote. At night, I can dress it up with heels and a cute clutch.

As a dreamy dresser, I’m always up for a bit of embellishment, embroidery and frills!
Attention shoe lovers: Prepare to be wooed by the sexiest red heels (maybe) ever made. Aren’t they just crying out for a fun-filled fling? I can see it now: Sturdy, seductive suitor seeks single female for a romantic romp. Must love dancing, parties, and short skirts. Long walks on the beach types need not apply. Think that sounds like you?
“I never wear flats. My shoes are so high that sometimes when I step out of them, people look around in confusion and ask, “Where’d she go?” and I have to say, “I’m down here.” – Marian Keyes
“If somebody steps on your shoes and ruins them, don’t freak out.. get a new pair of shoes. If you miss something, don’t freak out.. there’s nothing you can do to change it.. just move on” – Usher
“What do women want? Shoes.” I agree and woman want: Love, Bags, Career, a boyfriend, a husband………
Dress from Max & Co.
What is more quintessential Parisian chic than a Chanel inspired Bouclé dress? Classic and timeless, why not wear the popular Boucle jacket as a frock?! I am wearing a dress made of what I would call “summer Bouclé”, a cotton basket weave . To let the striking dress take centre stage, I decided to pair it with simple shoes (Pretty Ballerina) and a brown kindergarten cross body bag (Moschino).
If you are afraid of looking too “madamy” and old fashioned in Bouclé / Tweed, team it with these clothes for a modern and fresh take:
- Leather jacket or bomber jacket
- Sneakers, chunky Oxfords (see Alexa Chung below) or cage sandals
- Chose a relaxed fit with modern details like pockets
- Tousled hair
This is an eternally flattering dress shape: Fitted bodice and flared skirt
