Shoe Trends & Do's and Dont's at the Ball


Even though the temperatures are not quite there yet, i’m mentally ready to start to look at my wardrobe in a different way. Sure, it’s not Spring yet but as the temperatures become milder it’s definitely not a bad idea thinking about some changes and new additions when it comes to fashion and accessories. Something that has got me really excited is definitely shoes! Nobody can ever have to many pairs and when Humanic invited me to their latest Spring/Summer 2018 press event which featured the ultimate models for the upcoming months i couldn’t say no  - and let me tell you – there is something for everybody.

But before i start with the upcoming shoe trends, i’m excited to announce that Humanic, who's not only the official shoe partner at the Opera Ball and plays the savior for all the ladies by offering women a  pair of glittery ballerinas, also invited me to this amazing event where i’m taking over their instagram account and get the chance to show you around. Tomorrow i'm finally revealing the look of the glittery flats on my instagram account - don't miss it. So since the dress code for the ball is super strict (white tie) it’s definitely a challenge to find the proper attire. Not to mention that there are definitely a couple of do’s and dont's that you should check before showing up.

First things first - always respect the dresscode for each ball. It’s super important to choose an outfit that works for you and that enhances your personal features. Make sure to check some sources of inspirations like Pinterest or Instagram in order to find something that catches your eye, works for your body type and that isn’t too short. Another ‚do’ is pretty easy – arrive in time to see the opening ceremony of the young local debutants. Speaking of dancing – definitely join at the midnight quadrille dance! I’ve never practiced it but i had so much fun when i joined it last year. 

When it comes to dont’s here are some to consider! If you don’t want to be labeled as a tourist, don’t arrive in a horse carriage at the ball (i guess that's  pretty obvious). Don’t add a big bag to your dress and opt for a nice bracelet intead of a watch! Talking about shoes – sandals are absolutely a no-go! There are many options out there (check out the ball collection by Humanic) but opt for closed ones or sling backs (which definitely requires a pedicure). If you don't wear tights make sure to add that 'extra' glow to your legs! And last but not least - don’t miss a traditional Vienna sausage right after the ball. It’s part of the game and the perfect ending for a night out at the Opera Ball.

So with all this information i guess we can hop on and talk about the latest shoe trends – cause there’s a lot.

Another Year, Another Ballseason!


I guess a lot of you know the fact that at this period of the year Vienna is transforming into a huge ballroom and offers unforgettable occasions to dance the night away. As i love to glam up every once in a while i thought i share my favorite and most importantly easy look that i would choose for such a night. Over the last few years i tried a bunch of different looks when it comes to hair. It can be quite difficult achieving a style that fits to your dress and lasts for hours. One of my favorite look will always be the classic hollywood waves. 

Over the years i got so many question on how to achieve the perfect curls. One of my secret weapon is definitely mousse. It truly allows for greater styling control in order to get the best result. It can be used to add texture, boost volume and create curls or in this case waves. But be aware – always pick something that suits your hair type (fine, straight or thin hair – choose a volumizing mousse/ girls with thicker hair will need a lightweight mousse).

The steps are pretty easy - simply apply a handful to your damp hair. Blowdry upwards to lift your roots if you love to add some volume. After you hair is completely dry you are ready for the next step – curling your hair. Personally i use the Remington Pearl Pro Curl Styler which i can highly recommend. One of the most effective tricks i’ve been doing for years is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go. I have to say that i only opt for this technique when i’m attending a big event and have enough time getting ready. If i really want to get the perfect waves i always secure each curl with a bobby pin. Once unclipping the curls i always wait for a few minutes before i brush them out. For a maximum hold i always use hairspray. In this case i always rely on L’Oréal Elnett that i’ve been using for years.

When it comes to jewellery i often tend to wear statement pieces like this amazing crystal earrings. Instead of wearing a super dramatic dress i suggest pearing it with a simple strapless dress in a solid color.
