When I was strolling through my local Migros store looking for a healthy lunch in the beginning of the week, not all went exactly as planned. Instead of loads of greens, I first put all kind of chocolate in my shopping basket – cause as you may already realized the easter period aka. the Michèle-turns-into-a-chocolate-monster-period has started. “Damn, I was finally back on track after all my Christmas sins”, suddenly came to my mind right in time and I started to unpack the sweets – ok well, at least part of it ;) – while I came up with an idea simultaneously: Why can’t easter be sweet without all the sweets?

If you open Instagram as often as I do and if you happen to land on my account once in while, you surely noticed I’ve spent the beginning of the week in London for London Fashion Week. Exceptionally I was not only able to see the collections on the runway, but also to have a behind-the-scenes glimpse with my beloved Dyson team – and that was just as exciting as seeing the final result at the fashion show later on. So out of hand, I just decided not to share any pictures of the shows themselves here on the blog because you’ve already seen them via my Instagram stories and probably via those of a dozen other people as well – the last thing I want is you guys to get bored, ya know – but instead I decided take you backstage. Social media is strictly forbidden in this area and insights are rare! So here we go!

Do you remember the days when Leo prints where THE thing. I do not really remember in which exact year it happened that animal prints became trendy af but there’s one thing I remember very well: I didn’t like it AT ALL! Really! But honestly I also don’t see myself as the kind of person who is always hunting for the latest trends. I’m more like a late bloomer – one of those people who start to like certain trends five years after they’ve actually been trendy and no one else likes them anymore. I might be something like an anti trendsetter.

Some of you love it, some of you – well – don’t. It’s quite obvious that I’m speaking about Valentine’s Day which is just around the corner, waiting to frustrate womankind. Single ladies don’t have someone to surprise them with lovely little gifts, and even under those who are taken, there might be less than 5% who are lucky enough to have a boyfriend / husband who 1. even realize it’s Valentine’s Day 2. come up with an idea. So girls – single or take – no worries, we’re all in the same boat. But for me that’s no reason not to like the day of love, quite the opposite! Similar to Christmas this is one of those days you can get kitschy and no one will judge you because it’s absolutely legit and we should exploit and enjoy that! So well, that’s why my hair ended in a heart shape.

Meanwhile quite some time passed by since I attend Berlin Fashion Week mid January, but I still have these pictures of my personal favorite outfit and couldn’t keep it back, so here you go. I guess, in my mind I was already in Paris when I did this styling as I traveled there only a few days later. So the outfit ended in a très très parisienne style. Not only because of the cliché beret, but also because of the fits, the stripes – and well, basically everything. Or maybe I just finally found my style and do no longer have to travel the world as a chameleon, constantly changing my appearance. ;))

I am pretty sure you guys noticed I’ve spent the past week in Paris – at least if you follow me on Instagram – and I’m quite confident you also realized my pretty hairdos within the time spent in Paris. Well, let me finally reveal what actually brought me to the French capital: It was my hairdryer. Yes, you got it right, MY hairdryer – the Dyson Supersonic – not any hairdryer!

Damn, it’s quite disappointing that I manage to come up with the first picture from Berlin only now – two weeks later. Whoopsie! But as the saying goes: Better late than never! Today’s layering look is one of my favorite outfits I wore during Berlin Fashion Week and once again one of these very typical, fancy Michèle kinda looks, just like you used to see it four times a week over here. These kind of wild layering ensembles are not only practical to keep warm in freezing cold Berlin, but also to perfectly fit into the fashion week hustle and bustle while still standing out. Honestly guys, I really missed this creative side of me on the blog recently. What about you?

After spending the past week in Berlin for fashion week, then returning home to Switzerland for two days of studies (80% of compulsory attendance is kinda suboptimal for me at the moment), we just landed in Paris yesterday. But much as I love this city – especially for its magnificent architecture – the city seems not to return my love. There was not even a warm welcome, instead I was welcomed by grey sky and constant rain. So, Paris, you won’t get rid of me though! Even if I freeze my ass off and end up soaking wet, you will never get rid of me!

You know, I have always been able to tell what kind of a person I am. Always in time, reliable, ambitious, honest, but sometimes a bit clumsy and maybe a little bit naive as well! Also, I always believed that humans can’t change (and can’t be changed) in the main features of their characters – I also thought I won’t change that much anymore. But still I feel like a foreign person to myself at the moment. I think about thinks I never wasted time thinking about I forge out plans coming from nowhere. And while I used to get up at 7am on a Sunday morning to get shit done as early as possible, I tend to postpone things at the moment. What’s happening?

The holiday season is over, the new year has started and the weather is still gloomy and grey. No reason for bad mood though because there’s a whole lot we can do to brighten up our everyday life with colors and to keep the wonderful holiday atmosphere going for just a little bit longer. For example with our way to dress and to do our make up. Every winter there is one color I fall in love with again and again: Red! And then, every summer I wonder, why there are suddenly so many red sweaters in my closet! But I do not only like to cover my body in colors but also my face.
