Don't you shiver?



On and on from the moment I wake
To the moment I sleep
I'll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I'll be waiting in line
Just to see if you care.

Balmain Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection



Some of my personal favourites from the collection.



"It's more hard rock and punk this season," said Christophe Decarnin backstage before the show.

This designer doesn't put much stock in day clothes. In a word, his show was about legs. Bare legs. But there were a few cool looks that model types could pull off reasonably well during traditional business hours. They usually involved narrow-shouldered little jackets, loose cotton tanks or tees, and skinny tuxedo pants or jeans cropped a couple of inches above moccasin-fringe ankle boots.

Prada Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection



Some of my personal favourites from the collection.

After glimpsing a piece of lace in her studio and at first ignoring it, she [Miuccia Prada] found the handmade fabric crept up on her, to the point where it took over almost the entire collection. "I thought using a little bit here and there is tacky, so we've had all Switzerland working on couture lace. They're in shock," Prada laughed after the show.

"When you are working on something simple, the surface is important. I wanted to do minimal, something that was feminine and strong—but in the end, not so sexy. And there are a lot of references to early nineties Prada in there."

Justify my love



Wanting, needing, waiting...




At least I got these ones to make the waiting for "the real thing" bearable...

I think of things we used to do,

Think Big



(click image to view larger)

I got this vintage bag as a gift from my grandfather last summer. Big bags are a must for me as I like to carry around all my belongings with me. :) Well, not everything of course, but today it was my laptop, Starbucks tumbler and a bunch of uni stuff.
Once a guy teased me calling my bag a "Mary Poppins bag" as I kept pulling out things you normally wouldn't expect. What can I say, I like to be prepared, just in case... ;)

Gold-colored

I'm in a daze




Normally.. women are addicted to shoes.
But not me.
I'm in some way a blazer addict.
So... am I not a real woman? ; )
The scarf is from h&m which I bought a few days ago.
The colour is neither green nor brown.
It's like dark olive green.
The blazer is from zara and kinda old but still my no.1!

Don't function like I did before


I sleep no more
I dream no more
There's nothing here To wake up for
I talk no more
I sing no more
Don't function likeI did before
Because he doesn't live here anymore
He hardly calls at all
Now when he's gone I find myself lost
Staring at the wall

Day to Night



(click image to view larger)

My first try with over the knee socks. I wore a black tube top under the vest as a skirt. In the next picture you can see how easily you can change a day look into an evening look by just adding different shoes and another purse.




For this look I took off the grey west and the shirt and wore ankle boots. Here you can see "the tube top turned into a skirt" better. Two years ago I stitched some gold sequins on it to make it a bit more interesting. I think I'm going to wear it as a skirt from now on... ;)

Sky high



Tried them on at Zara and even though they were too expensive for synhetic shoes I seriously thought about buying them. If it wasn't the end of summer (or better said already almost winter here) I would have bought them.

The heel is very high but still comfortable because of the platform. I felt like a giant. :) Who cares?! Well, sometimes I do. But never mind.

Definitely crave worthy...

Bouncing off clouds




Well you can stare all day at the sky
but that won't bring her back
That won't bring her back
You say you're waiting on fate
But I think fate is now
I think fate is now
Waiting on us...

Seasons change










"Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away."

Carrie Bradshaw

Dedicated to my lovely cousin Ozlem...

Happy birthday! Wish I could be with you...

Take me where the sun is shining...

Before sharing with you my fall/winter outfits, I wanted to post some pics of my vacation in Barcelona, London and Istanbul. Summer is definitely my favourite season of the year, so I'm a bit sad it's over. The weather in Zurich is already very cold, so I guess these will be the only summer outfits from me you'll get to see.



These jeans shorts were a summer staple of mine, as you can see in the following pics. :) Here I paired them with a studded belt and fringe boots, which I bought in Barcelona.



Same shorts here. This time worn with a black cardigan and black gladiator sandals.



It got a bit chilly in London, so I wore a plaid button-down shirt with a blazer, black tights and flats.



I bought this maxi dress in a shop in Istanbul. Only wore it a couple of times, but I really liked the airy feel of the fabric.

SecondHandShop


One of many secondhand-stores of "Brocki" is in Wetzikon.
The location is slightly away from the city. It takes about 20 minutes to get from Zurich to Wetzikon if you go by train. It's definitely worth it, especially for bag-, miniskirt- and cardigan-seekers. There are also lots of vintage shoes and knitwear.
"Brocki" is by the way a secondhand chain store which is very common here in Switzerland.There are tons of old and new things..
Location: Zürcherstr. 35a 8620 Wetzikon
