Slogan Tee and Bouclé Jacket

Denim/ Romantique/ Shirts/ Wardrobe

Anna Wintour Slogan Tee

Slogan Tees  are attention seeking,  look-at-me garnments I steer away from – usually. There are T-Shirts for which I gladly make an exception – like this Anna Wintour Tee with one of  my favourite quotes from her: “You either know fashion or you don’t”.  For me, fashion is an expression of my personal style and how I want to be perceived by others, and that, you either know or you don’t

On styling the Slogan Tee, I’ve taken a style leaf out of Rebel’s book and combined the Anna Wintour T-shirt with a structured jacket (Bouclé Jacket) with limoncello Jeans from Luella.

Dress in Kissing Lips

Rebel/ Shirts

michelle williams we are stars-lips dress

I never forget as Michelle Williams wore the kissing lips dress from Prada Resort Collection 2012. She and that kissing lips print belong forever together.

One year later dress in kissing lips is still in fashion. That print is fun, feminine and wearable in any directions.

Lips from head to foot works in a way if you wear Prada and not a copy.

But here dosed, a blouse, a shirt, scarf or bag in kissing lips gives a little style in a Prada way.

Did Demi Moore steal from my wardrobe?

Moore-polka-dots-top-street-style

Of course: NOT!

Today I saw Demi Moore in the papers wearing a casual look: dark blue jeans which she rolled up and a blue polka dot top. I instantly recognized this ensemble and thought to myself that  I know this styling, it’s mine!   She looks like my older sister, sharing clothes with me!

I don’t flatter myself but I am pleased to see that Demi has as a similar fashion taste as me.

Feline Chic: Cat inspired fashion!

Kirsten Dunst shows her love of cats!

 

Cats are taking over the fashion world, with their cute faces printed on trousers, shirts and handbags.  Miu Miu has been the pioneer of this irresistable trend with the label’s often copied 2010 collection.  The trend stayed and developed further. Just think about the iconic Charlotte Olympia kitten flats often worn by Alexa Chung, making the young shoe designer rocket to fame. She continues the trend with her  latest collection which features the kitty face on high heels.

Above: Kirsten Dunst is a well known, fellow cat lover (she was heartbroken when her cat Tazzy went missing last February) and was seen paying tribute to the furry angels twice: On the right hand side of the pic, she is seen wearing Miu Miu’s iconic cat print trousers. Left: earlier this month she stepped out in Derek Lam cat print trousers with matching cat shades.

Oh. My. God.

I have just died and gone to heaven

 

The new cat collection from Parisian luxurious costume  Jeweller Les Nereides is called “Tout Beaut Tout Doux” (=All beautiful and soft) and features the mini tigers on earrings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces. I’m counting down the days until this collection is available (April 2013) and will share it here, of course!

Les Nereides Cat collection

I suggest you sit down: Les Nereides Cat collection 2013.

Why are cats so trendy? Maybe because of their elegant silhouette. Or because they are soft to the touch, but at the same time they know how to get what they want. The ancient Egyptians already adored cats, they were holy.  The cat trend might not go that far but one thing is for sure: The little predators are surely taking off on their triumphal course.

Slogan T-Shirts

The Slogan T-Shirt is a fashion item that goes beyond fashion, just like jeans or the Little Black Dress. If you plan to get something off your chest, whether it’s a political message, your own philosophy on life or just a funny joke, wearing a slogan tee is like branding yourself. I’m wearing a slogan Tee “Karl is my personal shopper” – And who wouldn’t like the idea of having Karl Lagerfeld to be their stylist on hand?

These days, slogan Tees are part of high fashion. Naturally, I’m not talking about cheesy T-Shirts like “Marriage – game over” or “My girlfriend is out of town” !

A slogan Tee always works with Skinny Jeans and a leather jacket or structured jacket. T-Shirt from My Boo, woven leather handbag from Falorni.

Flirty Dirndl skirt & Ankle Boots

Romantique/ Shirts/ Wardrobe

The Dirndl skirt is below the knee, full and flirty with a circular cut. The A-line is flattering for every body shape.  In the picture,  I’m wearing a nougat coloured, flared dirndl skirt from Max & Co with a wide stretch belt to contrast the volume of the skirt. Black lace-up ankle heels from Geox, black tights from Wolford and sunglasses from Chloe round out the look.

To complement the  girly charm of the skirt, I love combining high ankle boots or western ankle boots with the skirt.  Ballet pumps, wedges or pointy heels are other good options . As always, the choice is yours: Style it playful, grown up, prim or sexy!

Above: Dirndl skirt from Vero Moda, felt biker jacket from Closed, western boots from Buffalo. Seen in German Freundin magazin.

Luxe Leather Pencil Skirt

Romantique/ Shirts/ Wardrobe

As you know, I’m not really a Rock n Roll sort of chic. A head to toe, Angelina Jolie  leather look,  isn’t my cup of tea. But I gladly made an exception for this luxe rich brown leather skirt from Ralph Lauren. Leather doesn’t always have to be moto jackets and rocker trousers. Give leather a ladylike spin in a pencil skirt.

It’s such a versatile, classic item that you can dress up or down. Mine will serve me many years as an autumn / winter workhorse.

Above: Brown and pink is one of my favourite colour combos (think Hummingbird Bakery). For a more casual look, I paired the pencil skirt with a pink cashmere jumper.

This girl can do no wrong: Alexa Chung pairs a luxe leather pencil skirt with a chunky knit jumper.

I’m wearing:  Leather Pencil skirt from Ralph Lauren at TK Maxx, pink cashmere jumper from tfc, hand bag from Antoni & Alison. If you are unsure of leather, go for a  colour other than black for a a less severe look.

When we talk about leather, we can’t leave Ange out:  She glams her leather pencil skirt up with a silk blouse.

Printed Floral Pencil Skirt

Rebel/ Shirts/ Wardrobe

Vogue UK recommends that: “Winter in Bloom – there is nothing feminine about this season’s winter florals – they are dark, edgy and luxe.” That means for me: I can save a lot of money by keeping my  printed floral pencil skirt for winter 2012/2013. Now all I need to do is to think about the styling.  I like combining monochrome men sweater with floral skirts and pointy heels similiar to the brocade styling of Romantique’s post on brocade pencil skirts. Add a chunky belt to inject some edgyness.

Working girl

Accessoires/ Romantique/ Shirts/ Skirts/ Wardrobe

Today is Monday after the Olympics – I felt tired this morning having watched the closing ceremony until 1 am last night – and every time I feel a bit “rough” in the morning I chose a sharp garnment to compensate for the disheveledness. A white shirt always makes you look pulled together. My broderie anglaise umbrella skirt gives it a playful edge. Skirt from Max & Co, shirt from Stefanel, shoes from Pretty Ballerina.

 
The blue green ballet pumps pull the green piping of the white shirt and the navy blue skirt together perfectly!
 
My bracelet is a present from my lovely friend Fran – check out her website, showcasing all her unique handmade jewellery. You can even have your jewellery customised by her. Needless to say, Francesca is of Italian origin, as you can tell by the artisanship and high style content of her items.

Scarf Print Blouses

Rebel/ Shirts/ Wardrobe

There is nothing wrong to have a foulard blouse even if it comes back out of fashion, because on the Bahamas, you can put them on forever. The subtle details and strong colors make them perfect for warm and sunny weather. Scarf print blouses remember me of eighties decadence. Scarf prints bring to mind a kind of richness that adds to the appeal.

I WEAR:

Scarf print top by Tk Maxx, orange mini skirt by Schneiders Salzburg, Shoes by Tk Maxx, white leather Bag by L. Credi
