Oh CeliaB, you did it again! This Spanish designer owns my heart for making bold and life-affirmative designs. Every one of her collections is a firework of vibrancy, fun, and careful craftsmanship.

CeliaB's newest collection "Latin Lover" is a collaboration with Argentinian artist and illustrator María Luque. The two women met during Celia's trip to Argentina, and the result of the encounter are beautiful prints exclusively for "Latin Lover."

This collection is an ode to Latin American culture and in particular the Andean region art. While Celia's designs have a strong Asian influence, the prints enhance them, so the two cultures build together a bridge between continents. The clothes come in CeliaB's habitual silhouettes, volumes, ruffles, and details, all expressing her Latin origins.

What I love most about this collection is the strong expression of playfulness, an important part of CeliaB's work. The commitment to sustainability of the label fits very well my philosophy and what I believe fashion should be nowadays. Whenever I wear Celia B I feel strong and powerful, just like a modern Amazon. So here I am, dreaming of jaguars, dancing Latinas and autumn in Argentina. CeliaB, thank you for fulfilling my need for more colours, that's just what the world needs!

„Where are the looks of Sara?“ you might have asked looking at post after post without my face appearing. I tried and tried to edit pictures from shoots again, but had severe difficulties to focus and escaped into a world of product pictures.

I am blogging for five years now and never before I felt so tired of looking at myself on pictures. While I don‘t consider myself as a very vain person but happened to become a blogger only for the love of fashion, it was always clear that my looks and I are inseparable connected. After all this is a personal style blog.

But when I had a look at the last looks we shot, I just wished it wasn‘t me wearing those beautiful styles. A rather strange and uncomfortable situation for a personal style blogger.

What got me out of my moody dilemma was this look. I loved to wear the devil top so much and wanted to capture a new wild side of me in the pictures. No more effort to look good, no more worrying about not having the longest legs or an angel face, this time, I played the fashion demon obsessed doll. I danced, screamed and let my pink hair fly through the air. Can you feel the energy in the pictures?

I suddenly felt very free and relieved from the pressure of being more perfect than I am. Thank you silky devil, for awaking a new me. Now I can be brave again and face the pile of pictures on my desk.

One could believe it must be Christmas: I have another giveaway for you, yay! And not just any other giveaway no, but you can win a very exclusive Michael Michalsky bag in trendy rose gold and two bottles of Freixenet Cava. There are only a few of these sets available in Switzerland, so take your chance and have a party!

For its 75th birthday, the traditional Spanish label Freixenet is going fashion and asked German designer Michael Michalsky to create a special edition for their bottle. The designer inspired himself in Spain, visited the Freixenet winery and the local production of the sparkling wine. Freixenet and Michalsky share their high-quality standards and tradition, as well as a unique design and style.

The result of the joint venture is an elegant and classy bottle for the fizzy wine drink. The dots on the bottle remind of studs, an essential element of Michalsky's signature style. They appear on the metallic bag as well and make it an eye catcher. I fell in love with this bag as soon as I opened the box and the greedy part of myself wishes to keep it. But as my lovely reader, you deserve a unique piece so much, and I am euphoric to make the bag dreams of one of you come true.

How to win: All you need to do is to comment below this post and tell me what would be the perfect party for you and leave me your mail to contact you in case that you win. The giveaway is open to residents of Switzerland only and will end on the 2nd of October 2016. 

Good luck to everybody and cheers to the winner!
