Spring Summer Pick: Memoirs Of A Geisha

"There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn't exist for men. A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes."

Christian Louboutin

Sandals I Zara

Hello Beauties,

... I just saw them and was in love at once: my new key piece spring sandals. They remember me of the traditional japanese footwear ("geta") that also completed the Geisha look in the olden days. Do you still know the novel "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden which was made into a famous film in 2005? The incredible costumes, the captivating make up and last but not least the japanese "geta" really fascinated me when the film was shown in the cinema - and still do.

The Zara Sandals are an accomplished combination of both clogs and flip-flops. They are very comfy and I am very happy with the white design with a touch of gold and black that flatters sun-tanned legs in the summer. Definitively a favourite pick for me this and the upcoming season!

Baby Blue Jeans

"I've often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes."

Yves Saint Laurent

Jeans I Mango
Jeans Blouse I H&M
T-Shirt I Vogue Paris - Fashion Week Edition 2013
Wool Coat I Zara
High Heels I Zara

Hello Beauties,

let's start this blogpost with a simple question: How are you? Weather in Munich is pretty nice these days and spring has already shown its sunny and happy face. What are you doing this season? Besides trying to catch every little sunbeam possible, I am learning for my exams.

On today's blogpost I show you what clothes I wear when I'd like to feel casual and comfy but still would like to add a touch of lady. This would be the elegant claret high heels from Zara - matching with my equally coloured glittering nails - as well as the vibrant red coat. The casual part of the look is completed by a blue jeans combination: the baby blue jeans blouse, my beloved spotted jeans with rolled up pant legs and the blue Vogue Paris t-shirt. And to this nonchalant look: hair always wildly free and open! I just love jeans.. So Beauties did I whet your appetite?

Look #1: American Hustle Boho Chic

"Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself."
Oscar Wilde

Faux Leather Skirt (high waisted) I Zara
Leather Biker Boots I Akira
Scarf I Zara

Perfume 'La Petite Robe Noire' I Guerlain
Lip Gloss I Yves Saint Laurent
Coat I Zara

Hello Beauties,

these are my new favourite items of the month march. In combining them I think I was a little bit inspired by the new artwork 'American Hustle' by David O. Russell. As I've always been a great admirer of the Sixities/ Seventies music, dancing and the self-conscious and glamourous way of dressing of the women during that time, I instantly fell in love with the movie that celebrates this era. However I decided to add a modern rebel side - but take a look yourself!

I recieved a warm cosy coat with leo print a few weeks ago in Sale at Zara's. Since then it was my most loved item to go out with. In today's outfit board I team it with my high waisted black faux leather skirt, a cosy creme-white scarf and my camel MCM portemonnaie that was a wonderful present from my lovely cousin.

The key piece are the enchanting black leather biker boots by Akira. I love them not only because I luckily got hold of them in Sale 50% off but because they give a touch of rock chic to every look. To feel nevertheless like a lady don't forget to apply a spark of an alluring perfume and some nice lip colour to freshen up the look: to me that is the intriguing fragrance 'La Petite Robe Noire' by Guerlain Paris and Yves Saint Laurent's Lip Gloss N° 103 of the collection 'Vernis À Lèvres Rebel Nudes' with coloured light reflection (both items were also presents). Finally I don't specify for you Girls which top to wear to that look: a loose white t-shirt or a preppy white blouse - choose to be yourself Ladies and just have fun!
