Red is Cupid and the Devil

When I look at those red lips, I feel like trying out a flashy colored lipstick.
I'm just not sure if it will suit me.
In a little while I will try it out. Let's hope I won't look like a vampire.

I went on a mushroom foray

Recently I bought this lovely beanie from Zara.
I look totally like a mushroom.
And I'm totally in Love with it.


Wednesday's Inspiration


Heartshaped snowflakes

First snow falling on Zurich

First snow to wash the autumn dust
First white to clean the gold
First beauty, only days to last
First change to fresh the old

from a poem by Lisnic Ana

Wrist action

A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Oh, someone that you think that you can trust
Is just
Another way to die

Silver, leather, studs, chains... An attempt to recreate Kate Lanphear's accessory look. This shot was inspired by the one on the Jak&Jil Blog: http://jakandjil.com/blog/?p=244

Only "my photographer" didn't feel like experimenting that much... So I had to be satisfied with this picture. :)

Visual Seduction

Jacques Olivar is one of the greatest artists of contemporary fashion photography and his area of expertise are staggeringly beautiful women. His photographs are reminiscent of the golden times of Hollywood and take us into a world of beauty, glamour and mistery.

What makes Olivar's photos so characteristic and cinematic is the fact that his pictures are compressed into a single narration whose plot we have to put together in our own imagination.

Olivar masters the art of allusion, the visual seduction and tension building perfectly. Looking at his pictures, we can't help but ask ourselves if his female characters are representing lonely, urban women lusting for love.

Desire, drama and passion are predominant but simultaneously the theatrically staged models seem absent, lonely and even melancholic.

How do you say goodbye to someone you can't imagine living without?

"I didn't say goodbye.
I didn' say anything.
I just walked away.
At the end of that night
I decided to take the longest way to cross the street."

Stylish students


Age: 20, English language and literature student at the University of Madrid

Alejandro, whose origin is Venezuela, was striking a very relaxed pose while reading a book and waiting for his girlfriend : ) We noticed immediately his great hair, which upgrades the whole outfit. We really like the ensemble of the decent colours.


Age: 20, English language and literature & geography student
Inspiration: Music, favourite bands: Late of the pier, Arctic monkeys
Style icon: Pete Doherty
Fashion craving: a coat from Burberry
Shopping Tipp: American Apparel, Jamarico

There’s actually no need to explain which part of his outift arrested attention ; ) The colour of the skinny jeans almost seem to be neon-red. Either way, they're fabulous and we love his keen sense of putting unique items together, such as the hat in combination with the zebra-patterned belt, which he got as a gift.


Age: 22, English language and literature & geography student
Inspiration: Skaterstyle
Fashion craving: Leather jacket
Shopping Tipp: Carhartt

We like Samy's laid-back-look. The outfit looks very comfy yet elegant because of the combination of light grey and black. The jacket is totally in line with the shoes, which is from Pomp it up. All in all a cozy look, which everyone embraces~

Forever and a day

As we were waiting for the break to take some pictures of other students we had time to do a little photo shooting in front of the main entrance of our university.

Trenchcoat: Vero Moda
Cardigan: Zara
Shirt: Tally Weijl (yes, sometimes they carry decent stuff, too... :) )
Fringe Boots: Bershka
Bag: Friis & Company
Necklace: Claire's
Ring: from a road market in Turkey

My beloved Starbucks tumbler. Pink is not really my colour but I just couldn't resist... Those balloons remind me of the song "Love is in the air"... :)

You would know

But if I wanted silence, I would whisper
And if I wanted loneliness, I’d choose to go
And if I liked rejection, I’d audition
And if I didn’t love you, You would know

(shirt - h&m, scarf - benetton, blazer - sweetsoup,
bag - mom's new bally bag ; )

All I see are subtle shades of grey

There is no black, no white
no stark line drawn upon the ground.
No goodness, no evil, only hope.

I find no hate, no love, no perfect kiss
in my version of the world.
All I see is maybes, and the potential of tomorrow.

Life has no perfection-
but no flaws as well.
I dream of subtle shades of grey.

Coat: Yes or No
Beret: H&M
Knee high socks: Bershka

Knee high inspiration

Alexa Chung, former model who's now a tv presenter, is one of the most stylish girls from London. I really like her personal style a lot and when it comes to wearing knee high socks, she always gets it right...

Sometimes the world IS kind to little things

Nicole Locher is a Swiss girl who opened her design atelier 2001 in Paris. She takes inspiration from found objects from flea markets in Paris and London and creates her unique style by combining elements of vintage and modern fashion into a single concept.
She has a collection of embroidered shirts that look rather conservative at a first glance, but taking a closer look you can see that there is a dirty message hidden. :)

In particular I love her accessories and want to share some of my favourites with you...

Little Butterfly: What better way than to keep your loved one close to your heart in this sweet locket? Looking at this beautiful necklace makes me miss MINE that much more...

Love à la Paris: That's just how french love is... A Paris lovers dream of a small detailed sterling silver Eiffel Tower with a french laced bow. And how adorable is that tiny blueberry tart with whipped cream? Mhhhmm, tasty... :)

Wish you were here: Another way to say "I love you". This is my favourite from the entire collection. I don't know why, there's something about postcards and letters that I love... The swallow with the tiny milky blue glass forget-me-not flower is cute, too.

Tuesday's inspiration

I found these lovely pics on the internet but without any description,
So I can't tell you the brand. Unprofessional Mi-Ji. Sorry for that. >_<
I am impressed by the cozy yet elegant look of these outfits.
The colours are a.w.e.s.o.m.e. and I love the way how the pieces are put together.

Erin Wasson for Vero Moda

Although Vero Moda had worked with many famous models like Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Helena Christensen before, I was surprised to see Erin Wasson as their new face. Maybe I just didn't expect her in these clothes as they are totally different from what we have seen her in lately. The pics above are from the casual and comfy, yet stylish winter 08/09 collection and the one below from the Christmas collection.

My favourite piece is the fringe dress from the Vero Moda Magazine cover. I think in the pics from the Christmas collection Erin looks a bit more like herself. Maybe it's just because of the colour black and the heavy chain necklaces... What do you think?

Café Bar annabelle

annabelle is one of the most known magazines in Switzerland which covers current subjects in fashion, lifestyle, travel, living etc. In October 2006 they opened a lovely Café Bar in Zurich with a unique interior. The ornate wallpaper, one of a kind mirrors, editorial photos on the walls, lamps, chairs and plush pillows... Everything is designed to create an amazing girly atmosphere.

It's a place where you can have a coffee and read the latest issue of annabelle, try the delicious bagels and antipasti or just have a great time with your (girl)friends.

We enjoy being there...

6th August 2008 issue of annabelle with Daria Werbowy on the cover.

A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

Cause in my head there's a greyhound station
Where I send my thoughts to far off destinations
So they may have a chance of finding a place
Where they're far more suited than here.

And I do believe it's true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you're the only song I want to hear

A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere...
