Another hungover sunday...

... we tried to cure with an oriental brunch at the morrocan tea room/restaurant Maison Blunt and afterwards chilling out in a park.

Don't you just love those days between summer and autumn, althought there is technically no such thing?

I'm very flattered to be featured in the October issue of Glamour Greece alongside Alix from The Cherry Blossom Girl, The Stylish Wanderer, and Rebecca from The Clothes Horse just to name some of them.

Big thanks to Christiana from Fashion Paths who had the opportunity to write an article for the Do's and Don'ts section of the magazine. You can read her English translation here.

Anna and Karl

Gotta love their swagger.

I have a bad cold, so I spent half of the day in bed. Drinking nonstop rose hip tea.
Buenas noches.

Friday night's inspiration



Aftere a belated graduation ceremony I'm off partying with Mi-Ji and I thought I could wear my zipper dress somewhat like Angela Lindvall in the H&M fall editorial.

Wish you all an amazing weekend!!

But it could be all yours

I'm back home from my quick trip to Frankfurt!
By the way.. Nesli, Pascal and I had yummy Latte Macchiato and iced Cappuccino over at Henrici the other day. They don't only look good, they taste good as well!

Embellished shoulder



Upon arriving in Zurich I fell sick for a couple of days but now I'm fully ready (or so I try to convince myself) to start my master's degree at the university. When I came home my mom surprised me with a blazer she bought for me but having too many black blazers already, I wanted to try out something new with it. Luckily I have an ingenious sister who made it even more beautiful than I had imagined. I couldn't thank her enough!

NY Fashion Week tendencies: Spring 2010

NY fashion week is not over yet but while looking through the pictures of the collections already shown, I decided to assemble some tedencies that caught my attention.

Boyish



The slouchy boyish trousers are here to stay and I am personally very pleased about that. They're just so comfortable and look very sophisticated with high heels but I also like to wear them with flats. The looks from Richard Chai and ADAM are my favourites.

Sheer



Sheer fabrics are often used in the spring/summer collections since they evoke an airy and ultra feminine feeling. Not being a fan of the Wang Spring 2010 collection I need to find other inspirations on how to wear sheer blouses and dresses. I think nobody should wear sheer bottoms in real life, it just looks absurd.

Knee-length skirts and dresses



It seemed like hemline of skirts and dresses got shorter and shorter the past seasons. Although I'm totally into short things, it's also refreshing to see longer skirts and dresses on the runway for a change. I don't know if this style is "too grown-up" or ladylike for me but for some reason I could see Sarah Jessica Parker wearing that Chado Ralph Rucci number to an event or something.

Hot Pink



There was also a burst of bright colours in the collections! Personally I don't dress very colourful, not even in summer. Having said that, I do think they look great on other people. Be it a whole pink look as seen at DKNY or just a pop of colour at Lela Rose or Tuleh, next spring it's definitely time for me to wear something pink!

Nude



My fondness for anything nude coloured hasn't stopped yet and I'm glad to see that some designers felt the same way.

Print



Looking through the collections, not only floral but also graphic dresses caught my attention.

Orange



I was surprised to see orange in so many collections besides the ones shown above! This brought back memories when I was 13 and desperately looking for an orange tshirt to go with the orange shorts my sister sew for me! ^^ I recall having orange accessories here and here but I have yet to wear a clothing item in that colour. But it sure does look very fresh and summery!

Electric Blue



Big fan of the vibrant Derek Lam shorts! The only thing I own in this amazing colour is my scarf,
but my quest for electric blue tights that started last fall is still continuing!

Hervé Léger by Max Azria



Hervé Léger dresses are an all time favourite of mine and I couldn't help but post these four dresses. Especially the long sleeved one looks very intriguing to me!

Alexander Wang Spring 2010





The colours of these see-through panel sweaters are lovely and I think they look much better than last year's cutout sweater. Kinda also like something my granny would knit for me when I was little, minus the mesh panels of course. What do you think? I also have a fascination with Anna Selezneva's face at the moment.Those cheekbones and eyes... so pretty!

Zurich 090609

This past Sunday was so relaxing. I spent the afternoon with a friend at a remote place. We couldn't help but admire the beautiful view over the Zurich Lake...

A better shot of my latest cardigan. It's size L btw.

I forgot to show you my Givenchy powder foundation, which was a bday gift from Nesli some time ago. Thank you so much!!!

I did it again. Today, I bought another vintage wannabe Chanel bag. But this is my first black one. Wohoo.

Saturday night plans

My plan for tonight: curling up in bed with a cup of hot coffee (only bearable at night), watching past episodes of Californication. I think the letter below is absolutely touching...

Wish you all a lovely weekend!


Dear, Karen... if you're reading this, it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it. So, good for me. You don't know me very well but if you get me started, I have a tendency to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. But this... this is the hardest thing I've ever had to write.



There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. I met someone. It was an accident. I wasn't looking for it. I wasn't on the make. It was a perfect storm. She said one thing. I said another. Next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation.



Now there's this feeling in my gut. She might be the one. She's completely nuts... in a way that makes me smile -- highly neurotic. A great deal of maintenance required. She is you, Karen. That's the good news. The bad is that I don't know how to be with you right now and it scares the shit out of me. Because if I'm not with you right now, I have this feeling we'll get lost out there. It's a big, bad world full of twists and turns, and people have a way of blinking and missing the moment... the moment that could've changed everything.

I don't know what's going on with us, and I can't tell you why you should waste a leap of faith on the likes of me...but, damn, you smell good -- like home. And you make excellent coffee. That's got to count for something, right?

Call me.
Unfaithfully yours, Hank Moody

J'ai tenté de voler loin de toi

I had a friend from Switzerland visiting for two days and as my internship is over, we had lots of time to wander the streets of Istanbul. That morning I woke up to the sound of rain drops against my window, something I haven't heard for two months!

As my time here approaches to its end I can't help but think about the things I left behind...

Striped shirt: H&M
