OUTFIT: easy attire

You know those days where you’d prefer to simply stay in your PJs all day and nap on the couch? Last Friday was definitely one of those. I spent all day Thursday in Munich and then my flight back home was super delayed and I ended up falling into my bed some time around 1am. Getting up at 7 on Friday was miserable to say the least. I was exhausted from travelling, being on my feet all day, not getting enough sleep and simply dehydrated. However, there were quite a few things on the to-do list and so I decided on the next best thing to PJs, which is my favorite pair of skinnies, paired with the most comfortable oversize cardigan, the “oops-no-time-to-wash-my-hair-half-bun” and big sunnies. Works for me! This week will be another busy, but super exciting one – so hello, Mr. Monday!

BEAUTY TALK: Afternoon Tea with STELLA

Ohh Stella McCartney … I don’t know what exactly it is about her that fascinates me so much (aside from her gorgeous Falabella bags of course), but the woman is simply WOW and I almost feel a bit guilty telling you guys that I got to have afternoon tea with her yesterday in Munich. Like really with her, as in she sat across from me at the table ♥ To celebrate the re-launch of her scent “STELLA” she gathered a few bloggers and journalists for a lovely intimate afternoon tea at the Victorian House in Munich. Tea sandwiches, lots of pink rose, champagne, macarons, … so girly and so perfect!
I was actually surprised by how much I liked the scent, because I am usually someone that prefers really “light” perfumes. When I heard it was based on the contrast between the fresh, soft rose, and dark amber I felt like it could be a bit too much. But the rose comes across perfectly – not too heavy, but very true to itself – and as Stella told us during tea-time, it was her personal mission to create a scent you could wear, but that wouldn’t wear you. She said that she loves it when she meets people and smells the perfume just enough to want to know what it is, but not too much to want to get away from that person as fast as possible. Do any of you wear the scent regularly? I think it’ll be perfect for Fall!

OUTFIT: wearing Ioana Ciolacu

During Berlin Fashion Week this year, one of the shows I couldn’t wait to see was the Designer for Tomorrow Award. I think a newcomer award is always a great opportunity to discover new talents, and I was especially curious to see what Ioana Ciolacu (the 2013 winner) had in store, since her mentor during the post-award process was Stella McCartney. During the show I instantly loved the light colors, lots of white, pale pink and big prints. Personally, I always appreciate when fashion on the runways is actually wearable, and with Ioana I immediately felt like most of her pieces would totally work for me. For today’s outfit, I styled my favorite top from her capsule collection via FASHION ID in a typical “Vicky Look” – pointy shoes, a bit of leopard, white, black & gray.
