TODAYS OUTFIT - day and night!

flats for during the day and heels for the night! thats how I do it! it is a very easy way to get thru a busy day with style. I dont have to go home and change - honestly this is always a critical part. the changing part where I go home in between two events and once I get comfy it is so hard to leave the house again :) so with this look I just have to carry my heels in my bag - switch and that’s it!

my DIESEL haul this is what I found at the DIESEL sample SALE in Zurich last week! an amazingly cosy scarf, a very nice teddy and a shiny silver clutch!
there were so many people present and there were so many clothes, shoes, handbags and more that it was really hard to focus and make wise decisions :) but nevertheless I still found these gorgeous pieces! the scarf will keep me warm during the cold winter days here in Switzerland and the clutch is a perfect keypiece to jazzup a casual outfit and make it more chic and outstanding and the teddy, aww this delicate piece will always find a way into my daily wardrobe as the first layer always matters the most! :)

ROST & GOLD (zurich, switzerland)

this was the place where I immediately felt like home - such a cosy place with lots and lots of very nice things to see. I only captured a few things with my camera - there is way more to see. so for the people who will travel to zurich I think this place is a MUST!

Rost & Gold is owned and run by 2 lovely men called Werner and Roland. I met them that very night in person and had some good laughs and talks. thank you Dushka for introducing us. xx

CASHMERE BASICS that’s essential to my winter wardrobe! I live in freezing Switzerland and I can really wear my cashmere cardigans, coats and sweaters! I think we should all have one or two cashmere basics like a nice navy v-neck sweater or a beige roundneck cardigan. I get my basics from either C&A - yes you read this correctly :) I got 2 super awesome roundneck cardigans - a navy one and a beige one - or I get them from the PARENTIS showroom in Basel (seasonal sale 2x a year - s/s and a/w)
so certain days when it is raining cats and dogs or just a foggy day I like to endulge myself in my cosy soft cashmere sweaters, coats, scarves and cardigans - they make me feel as if I had not left my bed :)



here you can see some ideas of how I wear my Cashmere Basics - either very casual or a bit more edgy elegant. thats the best thing about fashion - there are so many options and so many different ways to wear the same thing! I love to play with different materials, colors and patterns and often I love to stay in the same colors and wear different shades of the same color.

SIMPLY by JIL SANDER the newest fragrance by JIL SANDER is called SIMPLY and I think this name suits the scent perfectly! It is a very feminine ladylike scent and made for the fall winter season.
Christoph Raynaud created this beautiful fragrance - he says: "SIMPLY Jil Sander is worn like a beautiful garment, a second skin sillage that complements her "to-go" trouser suits and distinguishes her incredibly stylish look." and I couldnt agree more! It indeed is a scent that makes you ready to go. it is one of these scents that you can not wear with a too simple outfit as the fragrance askes for more - at least thats how I experience SIMPLY.the design of the bottle is very clear and pure with black and gold - a very minimalist look just like JIL SANDER!

BROWN and BERRIES

here I am wearing some of the famous fall/winter 2014/2015 colors like subtle beige and grey, warm oxbloodred and a soft beige brown!


it is the time of the year again where my wardrobe is becoming a mix of summer and fall clothes. especially here in Switzerland the fall clothes are sadly outnumbering the summer clothes! anyway it is now where I can wear midi skirts with sweaters and leatherjackets and I am a huge fan of naked legs and covered arms!

SOMETHING NICE by La Roche-PosayTOLERIANE ULTRA - this is the most sensitive makeupremover that I have ever tried - wow - slightly impressed about this product! it is a gentle product for very sensitive skin and therefore each dose is filled in a little plastic drop/container - lots of trash but I would still repurchase it as it is just simply perfect for my couperose skin! HYDRAPHASE INTENSE LEGERE - a very very light but still hydrating skincare for everyday - apply day and night and it is perfect for sensitive to normal skin. I have not used this product yet, so I can not tell you whether I liked it or not. I will try it in the next couple of weeks and will hopefully get back to you about it.

COS OPENING in Zurich

last night was the COS store opening in Zurichs Niederdörfli. the event was a blast! lots of fashionable, stylish people were invited and were given 30% discount for the whole COS collection. thats when the nightmare :) began!

last nights catering was directly sent from heaven! I didnt try anything because I am very picky with food - but my dear friend Dushka volunteered and tried all the different dishes and all of them were not only really delicious but also very creative and looked stunning!

at COS I found something for me and something for Cristian - both sweaters in burgundy. If you didnt know berry and burgundy colors will be HUGE this fall/winter season. the items will be soon on the blog :)

more photos from the event will be uploaded to my instagram and FB page

NEW COATby esprit.chfall has started and I am putting together my wardrobe for the season. I found this lovely coat at the esprit onlineshop and I couldnt resist - this was an immediate purchase and I have not regret it yet :) in the photo I am wearing the coat with black fake leather shorts and a simple grey v-neck t-shirt. I am sure I can find many other ways to wear this coat as it has the perfect thickness for the swiss fall nights and I am sure I can layer it and wear it with a big scarf in winter and make it work. the INKA pattern details are very subtle and therefore very beautiful. I somehow have an overdose from the Inka/Indian patterns but in this case I really adore the design.

I AM ALPHA - ARE YOU ALPHA? this is the newest SAMSUNG #galaxyalpha phone with the lovely flower case by JULIAN ZIGERLI. as I mentioned before I am very oldschool when it comes to organisation and thats why I still prefere to use my FILOFAX instead of my iCAL :) I think the combination of new and old makes it for me. for instance I read my mails on my phone and then note the event and info into my haptic planner. like this I wont forget and I hate nothing more than my phone sending me notifications and reminders about doing something :) I rather have a look at my FILOFAX everyday and see what there is going on. 
Dushka was attending the event in ZH and had an amazing time. she took lots of photos and I will upload these photos seperately to my FB page and will put the link « here »
thats what she told me about the event: "the whole event was very mysterious as nobody had any idea what the YOU ARE ALPHA invitation meant. dresscode was either black or white. DUSHKA went for black and was wearing the gorgeous black LANVIN dress with a nice BALLY coat. she was picked up by a handsome black dressed gentlemen and was lead to the location where she was welcomed by gorgeously dressed ladies into another galaxy. thats when she was given the new ALPHA phone that had already have a personal message for her. the catering was superbe and there was a DJ playing on top of an ice sculpture."
julianzigerli - thanks for the lovely phone cases! xx

THE MIRROR FACE

we all have one as we all do it - we all check ourselves in the mirror - whether to check the makeup or our outfit. over the last couple of years I have been paying attention to the different mirror faces of my friends or girls that I saw applying makeup in public transport or inside shops - I really enjoyed this research! at the zalando summerhouse there were many beautiful mirrors and my blogger friend Michèle from the fashionfraction blog took some funny photos of me checking my hat and makeup in the mirror. my mirror face is a bit like a duck/selfie face :) and I think the first photo shows it very well. btw, this is also the gorgeous summer hat I was making at the zalandosummerhouse DYI workshop - isnt it gorgeous? in that picture I am wearing the GANNI blouse that I absolutely fell in love with - a simple floral keypiece to wear all year around - yes, here in Switzerland for sure!

what is your mirror face? have you ever noticed others checking themselves in the mirror? leave a comment below or comment on my FB page - I am very curious to hear what you think about your mirror face.
