SEQUIN TOP IN BLACK AND GOLD


Naturally I love shopping… but I also treasure some pieces in my wardrobe which I bought years ago like this sequin wrap top. Paired with black silky trousers and golden accessories it is quite a dressed-up look and together with a black blazer I feel comfortable for a dinner invitation or going out. The fabric is a light chiffon but because of the darker colours I tend to wear it more often in the autumn/winter season.

Speaking of colours: After discovering some new and bright colours for summer like emerald green, royal blue or orange, I am wearing more black again these days. Not sure if it is the trend or the season but most likely my own preference 🙂

Very soon I’ll present you several looks in my other new favourite colour Burgundy, I am addicted to this new trend colour… but stay tuned for my next outfit which will be quite different: A Bavarian Dirndl for the Oktoberfest starting next Saturday!


Natürlich liebe ich es, neue Sachen zu kaufen, aber andererseits gibt es ein paar Schätze in meinem Kleiderschrank, die ich einfach liebe und immer wieder anziehe. Dazu gehört dieses Wickeltop mit Pailletten, das ich schon einige Jahre habe. Mit einer seidigen Hose und goldenen Accessoires ist es ideal zum Ausgehen oder einer Einladung – dann meist mit einem schwarzen Blazer darüber. Obwohl es aus feinem Chiffon ist, trage ich es häufiger im Herbst und Winter – ich finde, es passt zu dieser Jahreszeit.

In letzter Zeit trage ich auch wieder mehr Schwarz, eigentlich meine Lieblingsfarbe, bevor ich kräftige Töne wie Smaragdgrün, Royalblau oder Orange für den Sommer entdeckt habe. Liegt es am Trend oder an der Jahreszeit? Wahrscheinlich einfach, weil mir danach ist 🙂

Mehr in meiner zweiten aktuellen Lieblingsfarbe Bordeaux zeige ich Euch demnächst, es scheint, ich bin dieser Trendfarbe verfallen… aber zuvor dürft Ihr Euch diese Woche noch auf etwas ganz anderes freuen: Mein Dirndl, passend zum Wiesnstart kommenden Samstag!

    Ohh liebe Annette, wieder ein ganz tolles Outfit. Solche Kombis mag ich ausgesprochen gerne und Du siehst darin einfach atemberaubend aus. Das Wickeltop ist wirklich etwas ganz Besonderes mit diesen wunderschönen Details und Du hast wie immer den perfekten Schmuck dazu gewählt. Es ist eine Freude, mich von Deinen Outfits inspirieren zu lassen.
    Und wie schön, ich kann den blauen Himmel auf Deinen Bildern sehen, leider versteckt sich der zurzeit sehr hartnäckig. Ganz herzliche Grüße Conny

    I am so jealous of your lush green landscape, Annette. The top is beautiful as well. Have a great week!!

    Liebe Annette. Ich kann absolut verstehen, dass du diese Wickeltop so sehr magst. Es ist ein ganz feines Stück, dass mit einer schlichten schwarze Hose sofort ein tolles Outfit zum Ausgehen geeignet ist. Damit kannst du zu jeder Feierlichkeit. Mir ist im Moment auch wieder sehr nach schwarz, ich glaube das liegt an der kommenden Jahreszeit. Wobei bordeaux ganz wunderbar passt.

    Ich freue mich schon, dich im Dirndl zu sehen. Denk daran, wo deine Schleife hingehört. 🙂
    Lieben Gruß, Cla

    That necklace is perfect with the top, and the top itself is gorgeous and timeless! Well done!

    Es ist ein perfektes Set zum Abendessen oder Partei zu verlassen.
    Sie tun gut daran, sie zu halten, weil es elegant ist und wirklich zu Ihnen passt.
    Obwohl die Sammlungen kaum sehen die schwarze, die Geschäfte sind voll von dieser Farbe.
    Also keine Sorge, weil du Mode selbst fahren.

    Wrap tops never go out of style. I have some from the 90's and still wear them. Yours looks great on you! Nice detailing. Good fit on the pretty pant too. The German landscape looks gorgeous

    Wow, these photos are amazing! The sunlight is just perfect and is making you even more striking (if possible). I hope your black is not due to your mood in having your daughter head off to college! But, you do look fantastic in it and very glamorous. Such an ideal setting and looking forward to seeing you in Burgundy too.

    You look fabulous, the top is something I think one could keep for many years and restyle it with many different looks, your scenery is a perfect backdrop for the beautiful look!

    I believe any color trend you decide to wear is worthy of following. I'm finding myself being drawn towards the blacks and browns this past week also, maybe its a casual way of transitioning to Fall. Looking forward to that new outfit post on Saturday.

    A very nice look and very stylish. The top is cute, the fabric looks super soft, and the colors I love. I like the shape of the neckline, with spangles, and also the cross so pretty. The necklace and bag are perfect in the outfit. I really like the balance of this look.

    What a beautiful look! Wrap tops are some of my favorite styles and the black and gold color combination is so elegant. Am excited to see your Bavarian Dirndl. My daughter and I recently attended the German-American festival in town. We, too, are looking forward to the upcoming Oktoberfest festivities!

    Very lovely elegant look. I love many of the necklaces you wear Annette and have a question. The look is great but do the inexpensive ones hold up well? One of the bloggers I follow mentioned a necklace that was purchased on bauble bar or one of that type of sites and it fell apart quickly. Thanks!

    • 17. September 2013 / 18:40

      Thank you very much, Rebecca.
      In general I don't want to spend too much money on a very trendy piece, lets say an orange bauble necklace which I probably wear for one summer season only.
      However, I bought two 2 golden H&M necklaces a couple of months ago and because of the cheap quality the oxidation turned them green… a real waste and I wouldn't recommend them! ZARA and MANGO necklaces tend to be of very good quality though and I never had any complaints. Annette

    Wonderful top which is perfect on your silk pants. Your necklace is also beautiful. Very stilish outfit. You look gorgeous!
    I often wear dark colours in winter but I am still enjoying light ones…

    I think the real challenge of styling is in making a creative use, time and again, of items one has in ones wardrobe. Constantly buying new clothing as they pop up in the shops every season, is easy and no fun at all…
    I can see why you like your top, it is truly lovely and a timeless item. I also have to comment, about the beautiful background.. Sara
