Unique Details

Like i told you in this post i’ve teamed up with Katie G. Jewellery and got the chance to show you guys some of her latest pieces -  but this time you will finally get to see them combined in an outfit .  I have been dying to wear those rings, earrings and especially this bodychain  which is obviously the perfect way to bring your outfit to the next level when everything else seems to be too boring! I absolutely love the fact that there are so many options to layer them individually that it seems that you will always get a different piece!
As you can see I kept the focus on the jewellery and decided to wear just a simple black ensemble, paired with a maxi dress and a simple turtleneck – i don’t know why but these kind of sweaters are my favorites!!
To give the whole outfit a little bit more texture i went for this leather jacket which wasn’t the best idea in terms of the cold weather – it’s been freezing here in Vienna but as long as the sun shines i won’t complain!

Perfect Scenery

There is definitely something special about Parks , aside from the beautiful scenerey, the sound of the cracking leaves or the relaxed atmosphere … there’s always something special in the air! You either feel it or you don’t!  I have to mention that until i left home i had the countryside on my doorstep and i always loved the fact that i had the opportunity to explore every aspect of nature on my own – i truly believe that i wouldn’t be the same person without all those little adventures i experienced before i stepped into the educational system! I remember running around on open fields, climbing the tallest  trees and jumping off waterfalls (yes i really did that), enjoying incredible views  and not thinking about tomorrow or about ridiculously overrated things! Luckily i’m still sourrounded by different parks, where i can escape from the big city life and step into an other world whenever i feel the urge to.  

These pictures were taken at the Augarten and i simply love the background  which was obviously the perfect contrast to my black ensemble. As you can see I also added some EnVie patches to my coat as a little personal touch and kept the rest of the look pretty simple!

Christmas Late Night Shopping

Last week i was lucky enough to  be invited to the Christmas Late Night Event at the Designer Outlet Parndorf. I have to say that i was really impressed that i got picked up by a luxury shuttle service along with my fellow blogger friend Hristina from Fleurdemode. It was simply the perfect start to an amazing evening!  
After a 40 min ride we were warmly welcomed by the marketing manager of  the center. Right after that we immediately decided to take advantage of our little spare time til the main program started. So we rushed from one store to the other hoping to find something really special within 20 min but we totally failed and headed back tot he stage where the fashionshow of the center took place!
Besides the well-known brands from the Designer Outlet, a few austrian upcoming designer also had the chance to present some of their latest pieces but i honestly have to say that my personal highlight was definitely one specific showact/singer who had such an amazing voice that Hristina and i were simply blown away by her song. I already found her track on youtube – so if you’re interested you should definitely check her out!
Anyway, right after that show we headed to the VIP area where we also chatted a little bit with the designer, had a few drinks and totally forgot about the time until we realized that we only had 25 min left  to redeem our vouchers – nothing easier than that. So we switched back into our Shopping Queen Mode (as i like to call it)  and made probably the best deals ever. I couldn’t believe it when i finally found the coat (seen here) i was craving for months for less than 50 % off the original price- definitely the best buy in a long time!

Cut Out Buckle Boots + GIVEAWAY

I think by now you all know how much i love my cut out booties but over the last few weeks i was already looking for another option because i simply don't want to wear them out to a point where they start falling apart even if i know it matches my outfits perfectly! 

So i was still focusing on finding something similar and fortunately i got the chance to pick up something from the online store CHOIES! Of course i had to choose these black cut out buckle boots that i have had my eye on for a while because they were exactly what i wanted! I finally got them delivered last week and oh boy - they are so comfortable and i honestly can say that i'm pretty happy about the good quality!

As an early christmas present the lovely people at choies have provided my lovely readers a chance to win $ 50 to spend on their online shop! Scroll down for all the information!

Patch it up!

While i was browsing through my closet i realized that i havn't worn  a few pieces in ages  and as i mentioned in my previous post i often tend to wear  specific pieces over and over again, not considering other options – but there’s always tomorrow! So i was thinking about a really easy DIY project but i had no idea how to start and where to stop! Fortunately i met Nina from Envie Heartwork - you might remember our little collaboration we did a few weeks ago where i styled two  (12) different pieces from her collection! What i did not know about her was the fact that she started her business by creating/selling fashion patches which can be attached to any outfit by safety pins. I am not sure how many of you actually know that this trend is having comeback this season but this is obviously the perfect way for those who want an eye-catchy look within two minutes! Time to shake up your wardrobe!

November is the time to throw on some layers and i'm definitely enjoying it to the fullest. I feel so much more inspired but i realized that i have a serious issue with black pants  - especially with those slouchly ones. I tend to wear them almost everday and somehow it became my signature look but my favorite pieces are definitely my Zara cut out boots -  i basically wear them with anything on a daily basis.

Forgotten Treasure

You might know that i never really had a close relationship with watches and over the years i have gotten out of the habit of wearing one. I own two or three ... but none of them actually work. I always check the time on my phone and never thought about other options but since the battery runs down pretty quickly i started thinking about alternatives! I have to confess that i was always a fan of those oversized watches layered with other bracelets but for some reason i never jumped on the bandwagon of this trend. Of course they can be a great accessory to dress an outfit up but i think they're actually really useful because i absolutely hate fact of digging my phone out from the depths of my purse to figure out what time it is which then leads me to just checking instagram/facebook/twitter etc.

So a few weeks back i received this beautiful model from Diesel - perfect timing i would say! They were kind enough to let me choose a piece from their current collection and incorporate it in my daily life. So now i'm super happy to finally share these images with you guys! I decided to wear my new watch called " DZ 5302 " with a very simple outfit because i wanted to create a very minimalistic look. This watch is definitely a little on the heavy side, but once you've worn it for a couple of minutes it's not a problem anymore and i have to say that it brings back some great pre-cellphone memories every time i look at it!
