WHERE I LIVE

April 20, 2014

Chairs: Impressionen / Side Table: Safavieh via Westwing


Happy sunday ladies & gents. Thank you for coming back again and reading these lines. Todays post is a very very very very.... long planed one. Do you remember my posts about three months ago? When I was telling about my the new apartment I moved in? Times flied by quickly and now three month later my flat is finally (almost) fully furnished and picture-ready. So curtain up, here it is, the "Where I live" article which allows everybody of you a little insight in my new home. I guess I don't need to tell you guys very much more but rather let you enjoy the pictures. 

Just in case somebody of you is currently looking for furniture or decor inspiration for their own home, you will find the brands and online shopping destinations of a few pieces visible right underneath the pictures. Luckily during my research of how I want my flat to look like, I came over a webshop called Westwing! The very simple concept of the shop: Every day you will find a handful of new furniture/decor proposals that only last for a few days and are limited in stock. Honestly I bought almost my whole furniture (except the big pieces such as my 4 meter wardrobe and 2.5m shoe closet) through this shop as they offer exclusive pieces for super reduced prices. Those low prices were not the only reason why I get totally obsessed with shopping on Westwing! Actually it were rather the exclusivity of the offered pieces/brands that are often not available in my country. I was very important to me to create something individual, with pieces I wont spot in every other apartment I walk in. So I chose to take a little more money in my hands and invested in hand picked pieces from Westwing and some not yet well known shops instead of heading for crazy furniture shopping at IKEA. I won't lie, for sure I was picking pieces at IKEA as well but wanted to resist furnishing my whole room with their stuff.

Oh dear, despite I wanted be brief for once, I ended up writing non-stop. Anyway, I hope you will like the pictures and might find a perfect shopping place in Westwing as well. I am still checking their store almost daily always searching or little accessories and decor elements to make my home prettier and prettier. Lots of love from Switzerland!

"OSTERZUCKER" BY MUGON

April 19, 2014


Good morning everybody. For today I prepared another event post that allows everybody of you a little insight in where I spent my past tuesday evening: The "Osterzucker" (Engl.: Easter sugar) Event of an aspiring swiss bag label called "Mugon" where Anna Jost (in the third picture), the beautiful and super talented designer of each and every piece, presented the new collection for Spring/Summer 2014. At the very beginning let me tell you just a few words about the brand itself. The brand name "Mugon" stems from the Japanese language where the word means as much as "Silence" and I absolutely underline this motto for the whole collection due to the modest style every piece serves! Consummate clean lines and stylish understatement come upon usefulness and premium material as well as workmanship. At this point I need to mention that all the bags are handmade under fair working conditions and payment in a small craftsmanship in Venetia where love for details loom large. Ladies, what more could one want? Style, functionality and fair production! That's it! That's all!

The event took place at the very top of the "redbox house" with a mind-blowing few over the glimmering Lake Zurich in the sunset light. Swiss singer/songwriter Lea Lu who is the brand ambassador of Mugon was giving a private concert with even yet unreleased songs which obviously touched everyone's heart and soul. Without doubt the ambience was magical and played a big part in the snuggly atmosphere while the bags were still in focus and every single guest seemed to fell in love with at least one of the presented pieces. Shall I reveal my very own favorite? Well, it's the pistachio clutch with the blonde braid band (check the fourth picture). Isn't it absolutely breath-taking? On the one hand totally outstanding on the other still reserved thanks to the soft tones. An absolute must have in my spring summer wardrobe! But actually I am a big fan of almost every piece as mentioned above, those bags actually serve every crucial point that is important to me in terms of bags, well, in terms of clothing in general. What is you favorite? I am curious to hear your thoughts in a short comment. Let me know. 

By the way, almost all of the bags you can spot in the following images are ready to order on the Mugon online shop. So make sure to pay a visit if there is one or more pieces you fell in love with. Furthermore you can visit the designers by prior appointment at Heinrichstrasse 267A, 8005 Zürich. Wish you a wonderful easter weekend (again) and if you are from Switzerland, don't miss your chance to win one of 3 x 2 Tickets for the NRJ Fashion Night here!

ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD

April 18, 2014


Yay, today is a free friday! Fridays out of the office are quite rare actually but thanks to Good Friday I will avoid the office and work in general (I try) today and spend some quality time with my beloved ones. Despite the fact that today is a work-free day I am an early bird as always and up since 6 o'clock to get as much as possible out of the day – the early bird catches the worm, right? Oh well, I know for some of you this sounds a little kind of freaky, but hey I am just excited about every new day I go through and want to catch as many inspirations and good memories as possible. Therefor I always want to finish all my daily routine work as soon as possible to make the most of the rest of the day. The earlier I get up, the earlier I can enjoy my day. 

So todays plan is working out afterwards a little bit of picture editing for the upcoming posts (damn, there are almost 10 look that have not made it on the blog yet.) and a quick 5min photo session to shot my outfit for today. After finishing these three things I am completely free of schedules what is very rare but actually these days always turn out to be the most enjoyable an relaxing (quite obvious, huh?). Tonight is barbecue time, yum yum, I seriously can't wait to get some delicious meat in my mouth. Hope you guys will all enjoy a wonderful easter weekend with your loves. 

Before I forget, I need to get rid of a few words about this outfit I have been wearing for a very normal day at the office and for a lunch meeting about two weeks back when it was a so much warmer and sunnier than today. I luckily found this perfectly shaped, sparkling cut out top on an online store I came over by chance lately, it is called Pitchouguina. I seriously tried but at the end I couldn't resist to order it. Well actually there were like a dozen more pieces that should have landed in my shopping basket (oh yes!!) but I should seriously save a little bit of money for holidays so I went for only one piece that perfectly fits with so many of the basic pieces in my wardrobe. So forgive me if it might appear on the blog quite often in the near future.

Sparkling Cut Out Top: Pitchouguina
White Mid Length Skirt: Zara (also love this one!)
White Pumps: Saint Laurent Paris
Leo Clutch: Old one but love this one too!

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

April 16, 2014


I hope you enjoyed yesterdays article about my little adventure at the La Perla store opening lately and are ready for a new very spring-like look I have worn a few days back at a super duper sunny weekend day in Switzerland. I was wearing my current favorite blouse found on defshop. This piece truly serves me that wonderful spring feeling on my skin when I have it on because of the super soft and slightly transparent material and oh well, of course because of the dreamy floral print. It perfectly matches with all my spring basic pieces and most perfectly with these shorts I own since ages but haven't worn for a few seasons. Why that? Definitely must have overseen them in my wardrobe during past seasons.

What a pity the upcoming easter weekend probably won't offer my beloved strong-sunbeams-weather anymore. The weather forecast predicts rainy days in Switzerland, but hey, I am full of hope they are completely wrong (well, actually I never believe in bad prognoses but always in good ones… not sure whether this is a bad or a good thing as I am always frustrated when they were right with the bad weather forecast) Ok ok, the topic turns into non-sense or shall I better say in a "nobody-wants-to-know-topic so I will stop myself at this point and leave you with these super spring-like photos!

High Waist Purple Shorts: Vintage (similar here!)

LA PERLA STORE OPENING

April 15, 2014


Happy tuesday, lovely people. Hope you all had a great start of the week yesterday and fueled up with lots of energy during the weekend days before! Today I have another special post prepared telling a little bit about my experience at the La Perla Store Opening in Zurich last thursday. As girl completely crazy about everything fashion related I am not only taking care what I visibly wear but also what I wear underneath. Lingerie is generally a very important part for women, right? Actually every woman should own at least one set of incredibly seductive lingerie, as it turns out to be our weapon from time to time when it comes to conflicts with the males out there. 

Without doubt, the La Perla collections serve the most seductive and most classy lingerie creations on the planet.  I immediately fell deeply deeply in love with the white bustier you can spot on the picture right above. I mean seriously, how perfect would this be for a bridal night?! But also the black version bellow is an eye-catcher and would definitely land in my shopping basket if I would have enough money spare to splurge on these! So ladies, if you have the same weakness for hot but yet classy underwear, I can definitely recommend to visit the new store at Storchengasse 6 in Zurich. And gentlemen, if you don't know what to present your lady for the next birthday, xmas or whatever occasion: You can never go wrong with pretty lingerie especially with some from La Perla (as long as you know her right size! Otherwise you'd better skipped these lines. hehe). 

A seperate Outfit post of my look worn during the past thursday will come up later. Make sure to be back soon to see all the photos and outfit details! Lots of love from Switzerland!
