Black & White 60s Dress

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe
Salt and Pepper look in a black and white checked dress

Salt and Pepper look in a black and white checked dress

Black and white monochrome, the most classic of trends and so easy to wear. After all, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t look good in those timeless colours. Add pattern like oversized checks or checkerboards, stripes and polka dots for a playful twist.

Keep it classic and stay in the black and white area or add accessories in pop colours!

Above: I love this black and white checked dress I am wearing from Italian designer Max & Co as it reminds me of Megan Draper from Mad Men (love new season 6 !). The length is work appropriate and accessorizing is fool proof.  Tights from Burlington, pointy flats from BCBG.

Watch out, Pippa! :-)

Style inspirations

From left to right:

Alexa Chung proving once again she’s a quirky cool London gal. She accessorised  her Paul Smith plaid dress with chunky oxfords, grey socks and a black belt.

Peggy Olsen from Mad Men in a fitted 60s plaid dress with boat neck. Classic!

French actress Marion Cotillard in a black and white geometric dress, mixed up with bright orange heels.

Diane Krueger rocks the Parisienne look: Black and white plaid tweed dress from Chanel with Peter Pan collar. She accessorised with a black beret and classic chain cross-body mini bag. J’adore!

Max & Co Black and white striped dress

One of my favourite dress shapes because it is so slimming (takes off 5 pounds!), the 60s A-line dress. Stripes mixed with white always look fresh and young. Dress and beige platform ballet pumps from  Max & Co

Hugo Boss Shopping Finds

Accessoires/ Bags/ Rebel Alexa/ Shoes


Oh, what an amazing window decoration at the Boss Store in Hamburg. Let’s take a look inside of the store and see my Hugo Boss shopping finds.

Just looking and not buying is a substitute if you don’t have a big shopping spend budget. It’s like scrolling through Vogue but in your hometown.


 I would buy this Hugo Boss bag  if I could – best bag of the summer collection 2013.


Next on my list would be the Hugo Boss sunglasses – black, clean, a little nerd, a little retro a la Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.


Finally, the two coloured sandals blue/beige, I love.

Are Trainers the new High Heels? How to enhance white legs?

Beauty/ Rebel Alexa/ Shoes/ Skirts


Will we see this summer season more trainers or high heels on streets? Are a pair of cool sneaks the new high heels? I like it to mixing up a smart or edgy outfit with a pair of cool sneaks.

Especially, I like combinations of sneaks and my floral pencilskirts. The outfit ist pretty easy to style: on top be classic, in the middle go on floral and on the feet be sporty & cool.


Today, first time in this year I went out without tights and oh my! my white legs!  What to do in this beauty case? How to enhance white legs?


I used my BB Cream by Clarins for my legs better than self tanning lotion! Keep a bottle of bb creme in your handbag to renew your legs during the day.
