I feel like sometimes one piece can make an entire outfit. As you guys know, I love timeless items in my wardrobe, which are usually not the most exciting. But if you add a big sparkly necklace or a cool patterned sweater, it can easily transform a look. So this week’s cravings (one day late – I know …) are all about those pieces. Take that amazing Hoss Intropia jacket for example, all you’d need with that are some black pumps, skinny jeans & a simple shirt underneath and you’re ready to go. Or the way those shorts are styled on the model: all black + one eye-catching piece. It is such a simple equation, but it works every time – trust me :) Which of these items is your favorite?
The final two outfits for part 3 of the #LVicons blogger project are definitely the closest to my heart. For these 2 looks, the wonderful crew from Louis Vuitton suggested shooting on the rooftop of our apartment, with my own Monogram Neverfull and Mike by my side. After almost 8 hours of shooting we saw the sun setting over Vienna and it truly hit me how blessed I am. It was one of the most amazing experiences ever to work on such a great project, and I am seriously beyond thankful for everything this blog has allowed me to do!
Over the past months, I have had some readers ask me how and why I decided to go with the Monogram pattern for my Neverfull MM. And honestly, I am not sure I can answer that question. I always wanted the Damier Ebene, but when the time came to make my purchase, my gut told me to go with the classic Monogram. It is such an iconic pattern and I think for my first Louis Vuitton bag I could not have made a better choice. Some may find the LV too prominent, but I think that it stands for a family name that holds so much history and tradition, and that’s why I love it! For my next bag, I will probably chose something more subtle (like the gorgeous epi leather), but I would never want to trade my Neverfull, as I think everyone should have at least one piece in the classic Monogram in their bag collection – and having my initals hot-stamped on the bag makes it all the more special and personal.
For part II of the shoot with Louis Vuitton for the #LVicons blogger project we decided on two very romantic, baroque-inspired looks to compliment the beautiful Neverfull Epi in a bright fuchsia (my favorite!!) and a classy black. Schönbrunn Palace is amongst the most frequently visited touristic attractions in Vienna, but it also holds so much history, and for me it is the perfect representation of Vienna. It shows the beautiful architecture the city has to offer and you feel almost royal walking through the beautifully kept grounds. By far my favorite place for morning runs!
I think these looks worked perfectly with the romantic atmosphere of Schönbrunn and the feel of the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall Ready-to-Wear Collection 2013. What do you guys think? See part 1 HERE!
Looking at these pictures, it still feels surreal and I can’t believe I got to stand in front of the camera for the #LVicons bloggers project! But let’s start from the very beginning:
As you guys know, I purchased my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM back in April. I’ve been an admirer of all things LV since I was about 18 years old, and I always wanted a speedy. But over time the Neverfull also caught my attention, and so when the day came to finally make my purchase, the choice was intuition and I went with the Neverfull MM in the classic monogram pattern. It has rarely left my side over these past few months and has definitely become my daily bag. Not only is the size absolute perfection, but it somehow also works with just about every outfit. So when I was approached by Louis Vuitton and asked to be part of their #LVicons bloggers project to present the new Neverfull in the gorgeous epi leather, it literally felt like a dream come true. Not only was it a once in a lifetime experience, but it was also super personal, as some of the pictures were taken with my own Neverfull in Monogram and with Mike by my side (stay tuned for those pictures!). All in all we shot 6 looks, which I will be showing you guys over the next few weeks. The inspiration for the shoot was the Pre-Fall Ready-to-Wear Collection 2013, as well as Schönbrunn Palace, which is such a magical place to me (nothing beats a morning run on the beautiful grounds surrounding the palace).
Here are the first 2 looks, styled in a girly, playful theme, which I loved, since it is so “me”:
