Look Update: April 2017!

Just a few dresses I tried on… All pics by Franzi.

The last four weeks I was on the hunt for dresses! Honestly, I tried on at least 300 dresses. The reason: The wedding season starts. The first wedding of 2017 in my circle of friends is on Thursday. Obviously, I had nothing to wear for such a special event. It really was not easy to find something in this jungle of different dress styles. And once more I realized that I hate changing cabinets and this awful light. But finally I was successful and found three great dresses!

The three dresses I finally bought.

…And no, I will not reveal which dress I will wear at which wedding. By the way: There are more than ‘only’ three weddings in the line this year :D.

Moreover, I participated at a clothing swap party! Now I have a LOT more space in my wardrobe and got three nice cardigans and a pair of sunglasses! Such a great idea to refresh your spring wardrobe without much money (and eco-friendly) :)!

With regard to my shoes, there are also news: I trashed my old sneakers and bought these new beauties. Since I also ruined my sandals last summer, I also bought two new pairs of sandals:

My new sandals – brown leather by Keen, black leather by ZIGN.

Then, as an after-effect of last month’s look post, I bought a pastel colored blouson (by H&M):

And I also spotted a new trend: BODYSUITS!

I saw some girls, who have gone really crazy about this distinct piece :)!

Would you wear bodysuits? For me they feel a bit too much 1980s… But on the other hand, they do look quite elegant on some women.

Have a beautiful April week! With lots of sun and dress-compatible weather :)!

Let’s start with the books I found on the Frankfurt Book Fair this year! Like I let you know last week, I am now the proud owner of my own sewing machine. So it’s not very surprising that I looked out for some instruction books on sewing. Here are the best sewing books I found :).

Have a beautiful day!

Inventory: Dresses!

Dresses are my favorite garments – I wear them more or less daily. They are loose and comfy and are the best fit for my figure. In total, I (only) own nine dresses: Four for festive occasions, one warm dress for winter, one cool dress for summer and three dresses for every day. I should definitely look out for more dresses. Only three dresses for every day a far too less… You remember the ten jeans I am never wearing, right ;)?

Have a beautiful day!

Party Dresses!

Party DressesIIIIIIIVVVI

What shall I wear on Marie’s wedding party next Saturday? Weddings are always difficult: Something white is out of the question. WIll it be hot? Will it be rainy? Has the dress to be long or is short okay? What will the other guests wear? I am deciding for a short, floral printed dress.

What would you wear?

The Summer Dress!

Summer DressI, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII

Finally – the sun is shining and the temperatures are rising! Yippee! It’s time to take our summer dresses out of the wardrobe and show them to the world. Can there be anything more convenient to wear for a girl when it’s hot outside?! Dresses are airy and fancy and you don’t need to think about a whole outfit. Simply grab a summer dress and your sandals in the morning and you are perfectly equipped for the whole long summer day. An ode to all summer dresses 🙂 !

What is your favorite summer outfit? Also dresses or do you prefer more the shirt/shorts combination or skirts or even airy linen trousers? Let me know!

Maxi Dresses!

One of my best friends is going to be married in July and I will be her maid of honor – a task I am pretty proud of to fulfill and looking forward to. Two weeks ago, we bought her wedding dress (and we found a wonderful one in which she looks like an elegant princess). I never before set a foot into such a shop – filled over and over with cream, white and ivory colored dresses in all shapes (and prices) – so this was a big experience for me. One thing I also learned at this occasion was that the “festive dressing code” in the invitation card in fact means that I have to wear a LONG dress. – I don’t have any long dresses and I’m not sure if I like long dresses. Luckily, maxi dresses are a big trend this season anyway. So at least I have many options to choose from. Here are my six favorites.

Which of them do you like most and would you wear a maxi dress? Let me know!
