Fall 2013

I've been looking for the perfect green/khaki parka with fur on the hood and a tie around the waist. It is supposed to be warm enough to wear it in winter. I already have a green parka, but it has no tie around the waist and is definitely not warm enough for winter. Any suggestions?

I found this one at tchibo:

What do you think? Hope it is still available since my dear friend Fabi, who works there, told me they were already sold out at their store. This is Fabi's blog Style Nikotin, which is absolutely worth following ;) She has a unique sense of style and knows how to enjoy life to its fullest - just the inspiring kind of person you want to spend time with and you want to read about! She has even been so kind to mention me in a blog post. Woohoo :)

In the next few days, I can proudly announce that two very important events are coming up.On Friday, the "Wear Fair" fair (sounds so nice in English :3 ) opens. In the evening, there will be a fashion show where young designers can present their eco-friendly and ethically produced collections for fall/winter 13. Aaand as an extra, on the catwalk you will be able to see - exactly! - ME :) tadaaaaaa.

But the most interesting thing is of course, that you can learn a lot about eco-friendly lifestyle and food and fashion and so on. And you can of course also shop until either your eyes pop out, your hands fall off or your portemonnaie commits suicide out of desperation.

The next thing, happening on Thursday, is a few hours of incredibly enjoyable, delightful shopping in Vienna. What? Nothing special, you say?? Well, I know anyone can go shopping in Vienna, but not like Fabi and me are doing it this Saturday. A few weeks/months ago, I met two really nice girls who run a project called "Guerilla Mode Shopping". They only appear about once a month in different places in Vienna, for a few hours to please us with the finest and best-quality second hand stuff you can think of. And the best thing is, it is not even expensive. It is unique and stylish, and every shopping is dedicated to a certain topic, which makes the thing even more interesting.

Actually I promised last time that I would write a post about "Guerilla Mode Shopping" but I thought it might be better to first attend another shopping and then write a nice, detailed article about it. Sooo watch out for that ;) For more information, you can visit their facebook page:

Anyways, coming Saturday in Vienna, there will be such a shopping and me and Fabi will be taking part - Yaaaay! :)

Okay, last but not least, here is something to please your eyes - another outfit. Please ignore the mess in the back - my closet needs some re-organizing!!
Btw, I can really recommend the Manhattan lips2last gloss. It is worth every penny/cent and lasts incredibly long. Yesterday after brushing my teeth it still looked perfect :D

Evolution of a Painting

A few weeks ago i took up painting again. I enjoyed it when I was a kid and now I even more do so, yet I have become more critical and still have to learn so much. Abstract painting really is so much more difficult than it seems.
I wanted to show you one of my paintings and how it develops from time to time. It is still not finished though - it will take a few more weeks I guess.

I started with a base in cream white/beige... ideally the base is neutral but not plain white. Then I mixed a dark green/torquois and applied it with a palette knife. The base was done with a brush.

The next steps only refer to the colours I mixed. I never ever use colours the way they are. Even if I want the basic "red" red, i use just a tiny little bit of yellow to make it look slightly more agressive, or I use even less blue (which would be just the tip of my palette knife) to make it look slightly matte and a little darker. Looking at the red paint itself, you wouldn't even notice a difference - but in the painting, it does make a big difference.

Throughout the day, I always waited to let the painting dry and then applied another layer of different blue or red shades.

Unfortunately, it became evening until the last layer had been finished - that is why the quality of the pictures got worse. I will replace the last one by a better version as soon as I can!

Still got the blues...

What do you think about this blue outfit? Been thinking about wearing this to a club... Although it's getting cold outside and I hate wearing mini skirts when it's cold.

Skirt, White Basic Top (H&M) / Denim Shirt (Hollister) / Necklace (Bijou Brigitte) / Studded Loafers (OMG! Shoes)

Anyway, I sooo much love this skirt and the pattern on it. I think it looks special, yet it is easy to combine. The only thing I am not quite happy about in this outfit is the shoes. Do you have any suggestions for shoes suitable with this all-blue outfit?
