A Cinderella Moment at the Opera Ball 2018


Last thursday I had the honor of attending the Vienna Opera Ball for the second time in my life. As I already mentioned on the blog Humanic invited me to the biggest event of the year where I was in charge of their instagram account. I was not only responsible for capturing beautiful moments of the night but I was also the one who documented their amazing service for the ladies. As the official shoe partner they had the brilliant idea to offer women a pair of glittery ballerinas – and let me tell you, it was widely popular! Of course every woman knows there is nothing more flattering than a leg-lengthening heel but when the need for comfort is key and your not able to walk without pain anymore it’s time for a Cinderella moment and leave your own footwear behind.

But let’s start at the very beginning. Instead of shooting outside, like I did last year, I decided to capture my look at the Coco Chanel inspired mirrored glass stairs at the Park Hyatt Vienna, which leads from the hotel bar to the lobby, smoking salon and restaurant. Adapted to the dress code (black tie) I went for a floor-length gown in navy blue by the lovely Austrian designer Claus Tyler and paired it with classic peacock blue pumps by Peter Kaiser - find a similar option here

In order to get in the right mood i kicked off the evening with a fantastic dinner before i made my way to the Humanic Corner at the Opera Ball. The minute I arrived I was pretty surprised that even right after the opening ceremony so many women felt the urge to get their hands on some ballerinas. Even two debutantes showed up giving me  the chance to have a closer look at their incredible tiaras As usual the hours passed by pretty quickly and before I headed home I took a walk through the Opera in order to share this special experience via Instastory. It’s so incredible how much you can actually explore and i can honestly recommend checking out the building to the full whenever you may have the chance to attend the Opera Ball. 

Another highlight of the night was definitely to see that this annual event was attended by some 5,000 guests from the worlds of culture, business, academia and politics. It's truly an evening of traditional entertainment that cannot be compared with anything else and that's why many of them danced the night away until the very last minute. But always be prepared and make sure to be equipped with the right tools. Especially when you opt for a special updo that requires extra  reinforcement - simply stash a few bobby pins at the bottom of your clutch. I would also suggest packing some safety pins in case of any wardrobe malfunction like popped buttons or broken zips. To extend your little survival kit bring some blotting papers (it just takes out the oil and doesn't affect your make-up) and of course some plasters because sometimes you don't know how much your shoes are going to hurt after you have worn them for a couple of hours. Furthermore i always make sure to stick to one drink for the night instead of mixing everything. Besides the alcoholic drinks i always ask for a glass of tap water to be in control and still have a good time. And last but not least - if you plan to use your smartphone to take pictures and capture memories, portable battery chargers give you ultimate freedom while you're out and about. 

So with these things in mind you can definitely extend the night but of course all good things have to come to an end. A Big thank you to Humanic and the Fashionsquad for this amazing opportunity.

Turtleneck Enthusiast

The main clothing item i always wear at this time of the year is 100 percent a turtle neck. Some people absolutely hate the feeling having something wrapped around their neck but i’m quite the opposite. It’s not only such an effortless piece that is pretty easy to style but it’s always have been the epitome of my style. Some things never change and some things do. Which leads me to my current love affair with pointy kitten heels. I never thought that i would became such a fan of this kind of shoes but as i'm getting older and prefer comfort way to much but still love the extra height. So whenever i'm attending a work event, a party or simply walk around the city these kind of models are my go to number one without killing my feet.

In the Mountains

Mid January i had the pleasure to escape from the city and enjoy 4 days at the beautiful resort Almdorf Seinerzeit. I have to mention that i’ve been here before but i didn’t know that this place expanded and added so much little houses aka chalets that i was more than happy to experience something new. It’s such a lovely spot in the mountains with the perfect mix between fine, true built mountain log cabins and 21st century luxury.

Of course i had to take advantage of this winter wonderland and shot one of my favorite looks, when it comes to layring up for the cold days, at our private terrace. Often times it’s hard to find a look that works in this conditions and looks fashionable at the same time. This time i tried something new and paired my favorite boots with a grey mid length skirt. To keep me warm i opted for a layerd look and decided to wear as much as possible under my biker coat. To top things off i went with a classic fanny bag which is probably the best choice when you go for a walk in the snow.

The Oversized Leather Jacket


Back to you with a new outfit – you may have seen this one already on my instagram but in case you  missed it, i also wanted to share all the details here too. I wore this look a few days ago when all of a sudden the tempartures started to rise and at some point it felt like spring. It’s so funny how a change of seasons can immediately boost your mood increase your energy levels and simply promotes pleasure and motivation – especially when it comes to taking pictures for the blog! I was happy that i finally got the chance to wear lighter pieces instead of throwing over a big chunky winter coat. This time i went for this über cool leather jacket by Tommy Hilfiger  which was sent to me a few weeks ago. What makes it so special is defnitely the shape. A little bit more loose and a few centimeters longer than my other ones. Compared with this comfortable pants (also from Tommy Hilfiger) i styled this whole look with my favorite white boots. I never thought that i would change my opinion on white footwear! Unfortunately the weather is going crazy again and i probably get to wear this look again by the end of the month.
