    DREAMING OF A BURGUNDY HANDBAG

    Going through my regular blogs, I stopped by at Veronica’s Bittersweet Colours and immediately fell in love with her new burgundy Phillip Lim 31-hour bag. Isn’t that an amazing bag and colour? Unfortunately it is a bit above my budget but if there is anyone out there thinking about a Birthday- oder Christmas gift… just kidding 😉 My purple shift dress is only a bit lighter but my vintage bag which I bought in Italy many years ago is probably…

    SUMMER DRESS FOR THE ITALIAN RECEPTION

    One of the benefits of working in an international environment are social events like the Italian National Day. We get to know the different traditions, typical specialities and drinks, culture and people. Italy is certainly known for elegant fashion and style, therefore I wore my new silky Sfera shiftdress and a light blazer as the event took place both inside and in the garden. Paired with peep toes and silver jewellery I felt dressed appropriately for this invitation. Lovely Italian antipasti, pasta, icecream and…

Tip: Look for a good seamstress to…

    WHAT TO WEAR TO A FORMAL EVENT

    Have you been to official events that required a certain dresscode?  A dresscode makes your decision on your clothing easy and difficult at the same time: ::::  Easy because you excatly know what type of attire is expected and what you can certainly rule out as a no-go. ::::: Difficult because you may not be prepared and don’t have the requested clothes in your closet – think of evening gowns or cocktail dresses.  I often attend formal events of my…

    BURGUNDY RED

    Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a very nice wine tasting event. We had a fabulous selection of excellent red wines from various wine regions provided by the international staff of my organisation. Even I am from Bavaria which obviously is famous for its tasty beer, I am a wine lover. Isn’t burgundy red the ideal colour for such an evening? For once the weather allowed me to wear my new ZARA dress. I love the soft fabric and its colour…
