Happy End

 Before i lived by myself i remember that I used to steal all pair of socks from my dad. He wasn’t really happy about it but i kept doing it until i moved out. Socks have never been an essential part of my wardrobe until i’ve worn them in a different way - in other words as a new statement piece. In the past few months almost every fashion related accessory, either if it has been a super hyped necklace or bag almost everything was named as a statement piece – i like to call it an "accessory upgrade"! 

But now it’s time for some flashy socks – and yes i’m aware of it that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea – but i think it’s a nice break. In the last couple of weeks i’ve already took advantage of the cold weather and decided to wear some non spectacular pair of socks over my skinny jeans but now i’m ready for some color.  HappySocks has been so kind to let me pick out some pieces of their collection. They offer such a wide range of original designs from dots to stripes, solids to blocks with the highest quality. 
And here comes the exiting news. I've also teamed up with the lovely people of Happy Socks to give away some of their amazing socks - so stay tuned for tomorrow's post + giveaway!!!

Think Twice

  Whenever i put an outfit together i realize that nine times out of ten i chose to wear new pieces – but what about the „older“ ones. I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes over the last 3 or 4 years. I still do like them, ok there are also some party dresses i won’t wear during the daytime, but i thought i should incorporate them more often into my current wardrobe and this is also a good way to look through your whole closet and answer yourself a couple of question.... why don’t i wear this? is this still my style or size? will i ever be wearing this again?  how can i combine this garment to make it wearable... or should i get rid off it and wait for the next fleamarket for selling? Once you’ve started you will so many options to create new looks – and this is actually what i did last week. Instead of wearing the same new pieces over and over again i chose to give my old burgundy dress and a five year old white baroque styled blouse a second chance. So what about you – have you started something similar?

ZARA: boots / bag / dress (old)

PRIMARK Pre-Opening - G3 Shopping Resort Gerasdorf

Today is THE DAY - Primark finally open its doors which is placed in the new shopping center G3 Resort Gerasdorf  !! This is the second store in Austria for the Irish-owend company.

 Yesterday I’ve been invited along with other bloggers to the Pre-Opening to have a first look and i was impressed right away. You will find the entire Primark range there on one level – from womenswear/menswear/kidswear to homewear to  accessories to christmas decoration etc. ...and honestly i have to say that i’ve never been in such a rush of finding new pieces, trying them on and directly went o the next one ... it was insane! My huge basket was  filled to the brim – and i was not the only one!!Here are the first impressions/pictures of the half empty store.

Some of my purchases: So happy about this beanie!!! 

In addition to the clothes i also found some cushion covers.
