Lovely Wishlist: The Comic Girl

Zalando, autumn dresses, blogger look
Dress  –  Hat  –  Earrings 
Scarf  –  Knee Socks  –  Handbag  –  Shoes

Rain, rain, rain, there is nothing we have more at the moment! The sky looks as grey as the concrete streets and brutalist buildings, and it takes a little bit more effort to stay in a the mood for quirkiness and colour.

My last outfit shoot had to be postponed because of the lousy autumn weather as well, and instead of posing I am writing this wishlist post snuggled into my blanket. An adorable way to work I must say! As you see, I insist again that looks for colder days are best with a stunning dress.

The core of this outfit is the coolest comic dress from my fav label Moschino. I found it in this inspiring dress guide from Zalando. The dress would go very well with the pink Gucci knee socks and the retro scarf with jukeboxes and diner signs. Pop Art and Comics have always been one of my major style inspirations, just like here often paired with 50s elements.

I couldn‘t resist smuggling in the Eggo earrings: Eleven loves them, I love them too. Gosh, how can it be Stranger Things is already over, and we all have to wait for so so long? Well, even the more reason to get the earrings and this dress and practice to be just as badass as El till our fav girl returns!

Sparkling Times Ahead

Yes, it's time to get into the mood for Christmas, think about gifts and decoration and get ready! Don't you spot cookies and tinsel in all shops?

In Zurich, Christmastime means Swarovski-Time: Probably the city's most famous festive attraction is the sparkling tree by the Austrian jewellery label. For the last twenty years, it has been in the historical hall of the main station to charm pedestrians and Christmas market visitors alike. This year this fantastic tree, which is decorated with 6500 to 7000 ornaments, will have its big twenty-year jubilee. There are other Swarovski trees in cities such as Moscow, Milano, and Dubai, but Zurich was first. How cool is that?

Year after year I am one of the many people standing in front of the tree with big eyes (and hopefully a mulled wine in my hands). The first time when I saw it as a teenager I was very impressed because it's unlike any other Christmas tree. I had to think of a giant crystal sculpture from a fairy tale. Since then seeing the tree became a ritual, and I can't imagine Christmas in Zurich without this tree.

Don't miss the lightning event! It will take place on the 23rd of November, 19 o'clock. I'd be so happy to see some of you guys there. Until 23rd of December, there will be a daily light show from five till the market closes. If you are not in a festive mood yet, I bet a visit there will change this right now. Ho ho ho!

Caudalie French Kiss Lip Balms

One of the best things about being a blogger is to receive all the new exciting products. Recently I found these lip balms from Caudalie in my mail, and since I like them a lot, I have to tell you about them.

I mostly wear bright lipsticks on my pictures, you might not think that I am a lip balm type, but on weekends and in the eve I can't get enough of this stuff. It's the secret behind my bright lips: The only way to pull off strong colours is when your lips are well moisturized and hydrated. Those three darlings brought an extra hydra boost into my life.

All products from French label Caudalie have something in common with wine, and those lip balms are no exception: They are rich in anti-oxidant grape polyphenols. 98% of their ingredients are natural, such as aloe vera, beeswax, castor and sunflower oil. C'est magnifique! So let's have a closer look at each of them!

French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm Innocence
This one is the lightest tint. It comes in a very natural pink, meant to enhance your natural lip colour. Its smell is a very subtle hint of vanilla and orange peel. Subtle, just like a translucent wine.

French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm Séduction
A beautiful slightly shimmering soft pink tint with a delicious smell of vanilla. This one is so yummy I have to resist not to eat it. My favourite from the three of them. If it would be a wine, I'd order another glass right away!

French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm Addiction
It's raspberry red, and it smells like a whole garden of delicious berries! Probably the most indulgent and intense of the three of them. I instantly have to think of a berry merlot.

Which one do you think might be your favourite, can you decide? If yes get it, apply it, and then there is just one thing ahead: Kiss! Just like a Parisian girl, ohlala!

Don’t worry: Ok maybe not all but just the temperature is going down. It’s that time again where girls are tempted to let their beautiful dresses in the wardrobe. It’s getting chilly, and your arms and legs start to feel like frozen icicles, brrrrrrrr!

I say it’s a shame for the dresses to sleep like Cinderella and wait for Prince Summer. I have a better idea: Ignore the weather as long as possible. And if nothing else helps let’s layer, let’s combine and create hot looks no matter the weather!

Today's outfit is a dress and sheer top combo. I own the top at least for ten years, it's not spectacular on its own but offers nearly endless options to combine it. And this is why it’s a real survivor of all wardrobe clear-outs.  Ok I admit, it's not a very warm outfit, but this is how I dress for events, of course with a long coat to keep me warm on my way there.

The actual star of this look is, of course, the Origami Knot Dress by Australian designer Leah Williams. Gosh, how I love this dress! How the bands move when I walk and how you can tie them in different ways… A dream! You might see me teaming it up with a turtleneck and thick tights for a more winterproof combo.

What is your strategy to survive colder days without looking boring?

Lovely Perfume Review: Aura by Mugler

Mugler, Aura, perfume review

Everybody knows: I am a Mugler girl! I love to watch videos of old Mugler fashion shows and even if I like a lot of perfumes, there is one I always return: Mugler's Alien, my only true love when it comes to perfumes.

Therefore I was very curious when I heard about Aura, the new Mugler scent. I just knew that it must be innovative and different to all the mainstream on the perfume shelves. The emerald green bottle looks unmistakable Mugler and extraordinarily beautiful. Like all Mugler flacons, it's refillable which is a big plus in times when sustainability becomes more and more an issue. Like Angel and Alien, its name starts with an "A," standing for the brand's theme "addiction. The silver part of the bottle forms an "M" for Mugler like a bold signature.

But let's move to the essential thing and discuss how it smells: Aura is a woody aromatic fragrance. It features rhubarb leaf, tiger liana, orange blossom, bourbon vanilla and wolf wood. The concept of Aura is "botanical meets animal, " and it creates a magical aura with an overdose of both two components.

My first impression was that it's a sweet but somehow wild musky scent. Not as crazy as Angel and Alien, but challenging and imposing. I have to think of Emerald City hidden in a thick jungle when I see the beautiful green heart. After wearing Aura for few times, I like it even better, and it grew on me. I caught myself smelling my wrist very often while wearing it and missing it when it's gone.

Like all Mugler perfumes, Aura is not everybody's darling, but the seekers of uniqueness will fall for it not despite but because of its edginess. Wearing Aura is not a safe play, but a fragrance for the adventurous woman on a bold journey called life.

Aura, you will sit next to Alien on my shelf, and I'll be happy to have you keeping me company and telling me to listen to my feline instincts! Yes I am addicted.

Patterns, patterns, patterns! It might be simpler to wear plain fabrics solely, but incredibly sad to miss the beauty of geometry, the diversity, creativity, and playfulness brought into your life by patterns.

Let's be bold, let's mix and match, let's bring together what might not seem to fit at first sight. And last but not least: Let's never be satisfied with the easy choice if there lies a pattern challenge ahead! Go pattern crazy!

In August, I and my darling visited Lisbon. This journey gave me an extra boost of strong pattern love. It's amazing how pretty the city is with all its cute, colourful houses and painted tiles. I believe living in a town like this must influence the mind in a very positive way and is indeed a different inspiration than being surrounded by a grey environment.

These pictures could have been taken in Lisbon, and you might be surprised when I tell you we took them in Zurich. My friends from ZigZagZurich created this wall at their new headquarter and turned an ordinary building into a very instagrammable place. I'll certainly be back for more pictures, and maybe I'm inspiring you too.

Would you like to hear about my adventures and favourite spots in Lisbon in a post?

Do you remember the knitting work of your grandmother made with all her love and attention to every stitch? Swiss Designer Beatriz Würsch brings that feeling back with her label Yaya.

Beatriz loves to knit and uses her needles wherever she is – only in restaurants and bars they rest(although she thinks that's odd). Very often she encounters people who ask her about knitting, and it's the start of conversations and them telling her stories of their lives. I imagine Beatriz weaving parts of those stories into her beautiful handmade fabrics made of alpaca, cashmere, merino or silk yarn.

The pieces made by Beatriz and her team of local craftswomen are using old sewing patterns with a contemporary twist. In a world of global mishmash, Yaya is a piece of local identity to be worn by forward-thinking people who care about design and sustainability.

I am honoured to be one of the faces of this new collection because I instantly felt the love this woman puts in her work. I loved how the oversized jumpers changed my silhouette and of course how fluffy they are. Thank you, Beatriz, for making me part of your world of knitted joie de vivre!
