OUTFIT: an urban brunch

If someone had suggested wearing a total white look to me last year, I would have kindly declined. White is a color that tends to intimidate me, mostly for the fear of pouring a big cup of coffee all over myself. However, in the meantime I have realized that covering yourself in coffee looks bad no matter what color you’re wearing, so it might as well be white. While dressing for brunch with Urban Decay today in the morning, I felt daring and picked out all sorts of whites. As of 6pm, I am still doing fine with no coffee stains in sight.

VIENNA: Fashion For Europe with Coca-Cola

Sometimes, it amazes me how great of a city Vienna truly is. Not only is it a beautiful place to call home (I adore living here), but also a worldly city that hosts some amazing, international events. Last weekend, the famous Lifeball – one of the most amazing charity events out there – was celebrated, and this week we are getting ready for the Eurovision Song Contest. The week has lots of highlights leading up to the big show on Saturday, and yesterday I got to see the #FashionForEurope show with Coca-Cola. The young designer Joël Macher from the Fashion Institute at Herbststraße had the honor of designing some incredibly creative dresses for Coca-Cola, which the presenting girls at last nights show wore. Joël won a contest to design the exclusive dresses and each dress was an ode to the original coke bottle, which is currently celebrating it’s 100th anniversary. I loved how flow-y and delicate they were and how each dress embodied the Coca-Cola bottle in a unique and subtle way – I simply had to share some images from last night with you!

OUTFIT: Milan Fashion Week – Day 1 with AIGNER

On Thurdsday afternoon, I hopped on a plane and headed to beautiful Milano for fashion week. Obviously I’ve been to a few fashion shows throughout the past 5 years as a blogger, but this was my first big fashion week – and it has been excited to say the least! I literally felt so overwhelmed when I was trying to pack my suitcase, which is probably why I packed more for 3 days than for an entire week in Abu Dhabi – but better be safe than sorry, right? One of my personal highlights was spending the day with AIGNER for a visit backstage and then seeing their show. For the first day in the Italian fashion capital, I decided to go with one of my all-time favorite pieces, super torn boyfriend jeans, paired with a stunning AIGNER cape (one word: cashmere!) and a gorgeous burgundy bucket bag from their upcoming a/w collection.

CRAVINGS: milano fashion week

While I am sitting at the gate, waiting to board my flight to Milan, I leave you guys with some cravings for fashion week. Trust me, packing for 3 days in Milan is harder than a 2-week long trip to anywhere else. What does one wear to fashion week? Especially in Italy, where women seem to have fashion in their genes. In the end, I decided to go with a few typical “Vicky Pieces”, because after all, I want to feel like myself! There’s a full agenda planned for the next 3 days, but one of my personal highlights will be the AIGNER show (I’ll keep you updated via Instagram). Ever since I spotted Miss Maddalena a while ago, it has been on my wishlist! These past few months, I’ve really loved crossbody bags, since they make life so much easier. Especially when I am running around town all day, I love having my hands free for car keys, cell phone, a coffee on the go and of course my camera. My flared jeans are packed as well, and this is one look that I’d love to wear these next few days.
