Out and About in Vintage

I really had to wear that vintage knit top I bought on etsy some months ago before the summer is over. Since it’s from the 1980s I combined it with some mom-jeans and a vintage leather bag. I’m really into the 80s but I don’t have many clothes from that time period. But I’m working on it 😉

On etsy you can find so many wonderful pieces from the 80s and 90s! It’s so much fun combining them with clothes from today.

It also seems like the 80s are making their way back into fashion! I’ve seen several stirrup pants in different shops lately and I’m going to get a pair 🙂

I hope you like my photos and thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Fresh by Moschino A Must-Have!

I’m a huge fan of the Italian based label Moschino and it’s head-designer Jeremy Scott , naturally I try to get what ever I can afford. The Fresh eau de toilette was a must-buy, especially because of the crazy design!

The packaging is very noble and the scent is indeed fresh but not in an obtrusive way. It is hard to describe … It’s really not what you would expect looking at a flask of cleanser 🙂

I bought it at our local perfumery and got a lovely Moschino cosmetic bag for free! I think I’ll use it when visiting New York in October, looking so forward to it ❤

You can purchase the fragrance on moschino.com, there are three different sizes available (3.4 (FL.OZ.), 1.7 (FL.OZ.) and 1.0 (FL.OZ.)). Btw I have the smallest size, I love it, it is so tiny 🙂

Have a great day and thanks for visiting my blog!

In Love With: YRU

young – versatile – sky-high

‘Discovering edgy LA-based YRU Shoes was a big find. YRU is an emerging shoe line with all the right stuff. Taking inspiration from everything from the LA music scene, to tumblr, to the streets of Los Angeles, this team of artists is about making edgy, affordable shoes. We love that they describe themselves as individual thinkers designing with an undercurrent of universal acceptance in mind. On top of being really great guys, a portion of their proceeds is donated to gifted and financially challenged youth. Very cool.’ (http://www.ashburyskies.com/)

I can’t put it any better than the guys from Ashbury Skies, that is also how I feel about YRU.

In case you wonder YRU is the shortcut for Youth Rise Up. Well, you will definitely have your head in the clouds wearing those platforms. 🙂 I really love the shoes by YRU and will buy some more when my finances allow it.

Have great day and enjoy the following pictures!

In Love With: Jumpsuits

jumpsuits

What is the must-have this season?! It is the jumpsuit!

Wikipedia describes a jumpsuit as follows: ‘Jumpsuit originally referred to the functional one-piece garments used by parachuters/skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs.’ As you can see on the image above, jumpsuits can also be without sleeves.

There are so many different variation of jumpsuits and as different as the jumpsuits themselves are their prices. Still there are many affordable ones that are also very pretty (Look at ASOS or H&M for a huge selection of jumpsuits). The three blonds on the picture above wearing more pricey pieces. Petite Ashley Tisdale (on the right of the picture) looks stunning in the elegant, white Paige Lace Jumpsuit by Monique Lhuillier. But that has it’s price, her jumpsuit costs around $2.000! Miley Cyrus (middle) was seen at The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles wearing the sexy Let’s Be Real Jumpsuit by Jhene Aiko for Lovers + Friends, which comes at $160.00. Rita Ora (left) goes Roy Lichtenstein with the Super All-in-One from her latest collaboration with Adidas. The jumpsuit costs also around $160.00 but you can see how different the styles are.

I’ve picked 10 jumpsuits, I liked a lot and to show you the range of variation that exists. I’ve listed the prices here as well:

The cheapest one costs around $55 and is by Monki, followed by the jumpsuit by Missguided for $70 and the one by Motel for $81. The jumpsuit by ASOS costs $90 and the one by Free People is with $108 not far behind. Followed by the jumpsuit by Wildfox for $135 and Threefloor‘s jumpsuit for $208! The second to last place goes to Rebecca Minkoff‘s suit for $235 and winner far off is the luxury, silk jumpsuit by Valentino for $5.200! Just to show you how high the prices can go and I’m sure that there are even more expensive ones 🙂 I want to state that there are beautiful and very well made clothes by cheaper brands, that also have great quality! I’m a big fan of Monki, for their price range they have a wonderful quality. I also love the the softness and quality by Wildfox for which you’ll have to pay a higher price. I haven’t had a chance yet to try out Threefloor Fashion and Rebecca Minkoff but I have made good experiences with other brands around that price range (like Moschino, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rag’n Bone and others). As you might presume I cannot say much about the quality of the products by Valentino, since it exceeds my budget but I hope it justifies the high prices (I really have to try something one when I’m in Berlin or Munich the next time ;).

Have you made any other experiences in case of quality than me? What brand has a good/bad quality? Or do you think luxury items (like the jumpsuit by Valentino) are worth the money? Please tell us your opinions, I really would love to hear it 😉

In Love with: Monki

charming – simple – super cool

“And somewhere inside that dream, something was born. Suddenly, in that place west of nowhere special and beyond the horizon tiny monkis appeared, floating like bubbles into a clear sky. A new kind of creatures, made up, not of atoms, but of imagination.” (www.monki.com)

Monki Style

Monki is a swedish fashion brand with a lot of fantasy. Their clothing range features simple designs up to complex or structural patterns.They also have illustrated patterns with a very scandinavian touch. What I love most is their huge selection of basics and their oversized tops which seem to be a homage to the 1990s.

To be honest, for me it’s the more affordable version of Marc by Marc Jacobs. Their style is well thought out and bold, it also shows that you don’t have to spend hundred of dollars to have cool clothes.

The Monkis

Monki is probably the first brand that created a whole world around it’s label. The world is of course called The Monki World and their little habitants are the Monkis. Everyone of them has their own design and character, here is a great description of the most important Monkis! Isn’t that a lovely idea? They really get me with that. There are some merchandize that features those little creatures, some even have plush toys. 🙂

Here are some more pictures of Monki’s collection:

Those Monkis are cool, which one is your favorite? I think mine is Mocki, he is made of 50% Rebellium, 25% Wilditude, 15% Socialium and 10% Fantasium and he looks like steaming, pink marshmallow. 😀

I hope you liked my post 🙂 If you don’t know the label check it out on: www.monki.com

5 Must-Haves for fall ’14

picks_fall_musthaves_5

Do you already have everything you need for the fall months? I have listed five things that will keep you warm and cozy now that it’s getting colder outside. You cannot go wrong with chunky knits, fluffy and oversized pieces this season.

Who wants to get out of bed when it’s dark and cold outside. Well, at least you can feel warm and comfortable in soft and oversized cardigans or hooded jackets like the Alpaca Hoodie Jacket by Mango. Be comfortable, warm and trendy at the same time!

Yes, it’s the time of year again! Fish your beanies out of the closets, this year it’s all about the pom. Get them in your favorite color and keep your ears warm. Here is a great one in lilac: the Chunky Hand Knit Beanie by Topshop.

Treat your sweaters like your cardigans, you have to think big this year. Don’t forget it has to be a turtleneck! I love theYou’re Getting Warmer’ Sweater by Nasty Gal, looks great with a denim and a fedora hat.

Capes are definitely a must-have this fall, they come in plain colors or tartan pattern like this Cape by New Look. Or simply drape yourself in your favorite oversized scarf, just be creative!

I’ve already written about fuzzy items some months ago. Here is another fluffy companion, the ‘Ever After Bag’ by Nasty Gal x Nila Anthony. After all, they have one great advantage: you can use your bag as a soft pillow for a little nap 😀

I hope you liked my post, tell us your favorite must-haves for fall! What trend do you love or hate?

Best wishes,

xx Isa
