Casual Saturday

Encouraged by the beautiful weather today my sister, cousin and I had breakfast outside and went to a flea market nearby. Our secondhand hunting continued well into the afternoon and luckily we also found some nice things. On our way I picked up the newest issue of Vogue Paris with a mesmerising Rose Cordero on the cover and we enjoyed it alongside our coffees. It was definitely a lovely day...

Cardigan: C&A Blazer: vintage Emporio Armani

Dry shampoo

Some feel good products:
1. Laura Mercier, almond and coconut body and bath collection / creme brulee body and bath collection
2. Fresh, citron de vigne candle
The mix of almond and coconut must be heavenly.

T3, refresh volumizing dry shampoo

Does anyone of you have experience with dry shampoo?

I would love to try it out, but I'm quite skeptical about the effect though...

Night Shopping at H&M/ Sonia Rykiel Pre-Sale

Yesterday H&M and the Swiss magazines Annabelle and Friday hosted a night shopping and the guests also had the chance to buy the Sonia Rykiel knitwear collection beforehand. Since I wasn't crazy about the collection I just did some regular shopping and hung out with friends who were also there. A fun night with music, candies, macarons and lots of champagne... ^^

What are your thoughts on the collection? Will you be buying anything tomorrow?

What they're wearing in...

The Times UK has a section called "What they're wearing in:..." every Saturday with people from all around the world. Last Saturday it was Zurich's turn so I ended up being in the paper. ^^ Thanks a lot to Sarah for contacting me and to Louise for informing me about it on Twitter. I'd love to have the real newspaper from February 13th. So if by chance any of our UK readers has an old paper lying around, please let me know!

Caroline Blomst from Caroline's Mode recently did an editorial using 14 items to create 14 different looks. I always like stylings like these because they prove that you don't need tons of different clothes to wear a new look every day.

My favourite is this one because it incorporates the two items from my latest post and also shows that they can be worn very casually sporty.

Have a look at the other 13 looks here. She has a competition going on til 22/2 and you could win an entire outfit of your choice!

This gorgeous woman is wearing the two pieces I've been coveting for a long time now.
I think a light weight parka, preferably in khaki, is a must for me this spring! Last year I almost found the perfect vintage leather skirt which was also really inexpensive because the sales person didn't notice it was genuine leather. (I love it when that happens!) ^^
Unfortunately it was a wee bit small for me so my closet still lacks one...
Below are some items I like:

Cave of wonders

I love the jewelry with rough, uncut stones from Paula Mendoza's latest collection! They're all so beautiful I couldn't even choose a favorite. Which is yours?

I came across them on Elif's blog The Fashion Medley which is full of inspirational editorials, not so common runway pictures and styling ideas. Have a look at it!

Rainy and foggy

Eating cookies'n'creme and watching dvds on a rainy night sounds almost perfect to me.

My heart is in this; for better or for worse.

Long time no see but I'm finally back with an outfit post!
Last week I spent 4 days in Hamburg/Germany visiting a friend who's studying there. Unfortunately I was sick most of the time and walked around all covered up. Apparently they've been having the coldest winter in 12 years there, so we also had a chance to walk on a frozen up lake! In spite of my sickness I did some shopping there, like this studded bag from Friis & Company.

Zurich is milder compared to Northern Germany but you still need a warm coat over a thick sweater or blazer. I've been wearing my overknees a lot this winter over jeans because they keep my legs really warm. The wear made them a bit looser around my thighs so they slip down a little...

As I told you before, one month ago I had my hair cut and colored. In the beginning it was almost too dark but now I'm fully happy with my brown hair.

This snake ring that I got from Pimkie is also a souvenir from Hamburg.

Circle scarf: H&M

Necklace: COS, also from Hamburg

Blazer: vintage Emporio Armani
Sweater: Vero Moda
Jeans: Tally Weijl
Overknees: Marco (store in Milan)

I wish you all a wonderful weekend! ♥

Time travel

Yesterday I stayed most of the day at the National Museum of Korea. I was so eager to capture all the ancient jewelry on camera! It was such a rewarding visit! Here are some impressions:

Outside the museum

Gold earrings, 5th-6th century

Fluttering hairpin

Worn around the neck. A chest ornament covers the entire chest. Strands of sparkling gold beads contrast beautifully with thousands of dark blue glass beads threaded together in 6-7 rows.

Celadon box for cosmetics. 13th century

Hope all have a lovely Thursday!
