Would you believe me, if I told you that I didn’t shop at all (!) during our trip to NYC? Nada! Nothing! Actually, I bought a pair of headphones and stocked up on my favorite serum, but when it comes to fashion, I didn’t even feel the need to go into any stores this time around. Why? Because the times during which New York used to be my shopping mecca with loads of brands that were unavailable in Europe (let alone Austria) are definitely over. In the past, I would make endless wishlists for brands like Anine Bing, Alice + Olivia, or RE/DONE prior to a trip to the United States. Now, however, with the launch of online stores like Breuninger in Austria, all of those brands are just a mouse click away. And let’s face it, I would much rather spend 4 days in NYC strolling the streets and sipping on iced matcha lattes with Mike, than trying on stuff in changing rooms!
Now Shipping to Austria…
Breuninger and I go way back. Those that read my “ask me anything” post from last week, will know that I was born in Stuttgart and still have my grandparents there. If you have ever been to Stuttgart, you are probably aware of the fact that Breuninger is no.1 shopping destination in town (and has been since 1881). Not only does the department store have anything from a huge shoe selection, all of the major beauty brands and clothes for the entire family, but it is also home to many designer brand like Chloé, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Prada or Saint Laurent.
Inspired by a mix of New York City and upcoming fall fashion, today’s outfit is a typical “Vicky Look” – if I dare say so myself. I like to consider denim my thing. In an interview, I was recently asked if I preferred pants/jeans or dresses. Without having to think even one second, the answer was jeans. I have been loving dresses for these hot summer days lately, but nothing feels as true to my style as a good pair of jeans. And by good, I mean really good! Not without reason has the brand RE/DONE become so hyped. The jeans fit. Easy as that! I wanted to add a pair of theirs to my collection forever, and thanks to Breuninger.at I finally found my match. Paired with pointy black heels (can we please talk about that bow??), a white blouse with a twist and my favorite Chloé backpack, it is one of those looks that I could probably wear for the rest of my life! Drama aside, I think nothing will ever be able to compete with a modern take on true classics like blue jeans, black pumps or white blouses – who’s with me?
