30092011 ROAR...

I love cats! 
Everyone who knows me also knows about my strong affection for cats, dogs and little kids. 
As long as they don't whine or bark. In that case I kinda despise them. In fact I consider it great fun to talk to dogs and kids that I come across, especially if I don't know them. 
I don't understand why people think that this behavior is abnormal or annoying. 
I think it's a perfectly normal thing to do!

Anyways, a couple of days ago I found this dress at Zara. 
I was almost ecstatic, hugging the dress and joyfully jumping around. What an allergy friendly option!
I am well aware that the print is showing a tiger and not a cat. But I planned my outing of the future me, a crazy 50 year old lady with a ton of cats, possibly throwing with wasps and mosquitoes, at a later date. 
Hence, walking around with a huge cat on my dress - NOT a wise option. 
On the other hand, Walking around with a tiny tiger -  A very good option and a little brainteaser for all the smarties amongst us!

For some reason I can't find it online. To see the brother of this dress click here.



F*** Work.

Let's Dance!

The pictures are amazing but wait till you see how they were achieved!

B r a v o ! 

I order everyone to bust out their moves! 
D O  I T  N O W !




As most of you know I spent the last week in Salzburg sunbathing, relaxing, downing a couple glasses of great wine here and there and peeking at a few fashion shows online. 

All reasons for the lack of posts on my behalf.
In the meanwhile everyone and their mother must have been spamming the heck out of our great blogosphere! 
I have about 150 unread posts?! 
It makes me look like myself on my 17th birthday when I tried on the granny underpants my dear friends handed to me in the most festive manner. And even worse, I feel a tiny bit bitter inside as I missed out on, what seems to be, an exciting game.
I hate missing out on exciting games! In fact I've never played a drinking game and I assume they're fun.
B O H O O !

The good news?
I'm back! - Blogosphere watch out.

On to what the core of my blog is supposed to be...
Yup, not rambling. 

It was the perfect ending of a hot-hot day at the lake. It was still warm so I decided to throw on a skirt, a short sleeved jumper (I always freeze. It's 25°C and I will eventually freeze.) and dragged the fella to a nice restaurant for dinner.

I love combining roughly knitted jumpers with leather. It kind of tones down all the sexy vibe that comes with wearing leather.

On my Screen

The lakes are screaming my name loud and clear but I'm captivated by all things fashion that the internet offers.
I'm glued to the screen, squared-eyed and what not.
...probably until someone offers me a banana split or a glass of wine. 




for everyone who hates Mondays..

If there was a fire in our building, this would be the one outfit I would safe. 
If I were only allowed to own one outfit to sleep, live and party in - this would be the one I would choose.
If I had a signature outfit, this would be it!

Simple, comfy, relaxed with a hint of grunge - no need to say more.

Top, Pants & Shoes - Zara / Bag - Cambridge Satchel Company / Foldable Wayfarer - Ray Ban / Bra - AA / 
Bracelet - from my beloved Daddy-o 

The background: 
I was walking around on the upper platform of the Albertina, one of the greatest museums in Vienna. Amongst other things like Monet and Picasso they are also exhibiting the photographic Society in Vienna from 1861 to 1945 (I'm especially excited to have a look at that). Have a look at their current exhibitions here.

Behind me you can see a couple historical buildings. 
1. Picture: a Statue of Emperor Franz Joseph, Austria's last Emperor and behind that the famous Sacher Hotel.
2. Picture: A peek of the national library. A place I used to spend most of my time at. 
3. Picture: the impressive State Opera.

What's your favourite/signature outfit? 




I'm on my way to Salzburg *YAY*
 I figured I would show you a quick snap of the flats I bought yesterday.
I went to Zara just to have a look at the new collection and to see if they had any plain and simple sandals. When I was about to leave the store I saw these flats. Now they definitely aren't simple in the truest sense of the word but when I picked them up I saw that they were marked down from 50€ to 15€. 
Seconds later I found myself at the check out paying for bright yellow and studded sandals.

A lot of people think that the sales are over as soon as the new collections are hitting the sores and taking over most of the space with great impact. That's not entirely true. They still go on but you have to go to the right stores! 
Every city has a, what I call, big-bossy-pants-store. When the hysteric sales are approaching the end all the little stores start supplying the “big-bossy-pants-store”.

Which is why I've got some advice for you. 
You should take one last stroll through your “big-bossy-pants” sale section. 
You might be surprised of how many beautiful pieces will find their way into your beloved wardrobe.




Yesterday, I went for lunch with some friends. So guess what?! The pictures above weren't taken by a stranger but by my dear friend Crazy-Carl! I guess that's a challenge I'll have to conquer another day. 
Anyways, She's so good at this - I decided to propose her a shady business deal. From now on she'll help me out with my pictures every once in a while and I'll pay her in manicures and pedicures! 
Tomorrow we will meet up so I can "minx-up" her toes. - Don't know what I'm talking about? Click HERE!
This is the greatest idea ever. Usually I always have to force people into stuff like this, e.g. my bf but that's another story. 
Thank you Crazy-Carl, you might regret this in the near future <3

I love the jeans on jeans look, especially if the colour slightly differs from one piece to the other.
I popped on my caramel leather jacket as I wanted to add a touch of warmth to the look without the obvious cozy warm feel some materials have to them (e.g. the loosely knit structure of a jumper).
I was running around the city wearing Nike sneakers but for Castings I changed into my nude peep-toes.

Leather jacket - ZARA / Shirt - H&M / Jeans - Acne / Nude Pumps - Pura Lopez
 Oh and the silver rings are also from H&M, I recently got about a million of those for just 5€. 
What a fashionable steal!




I'm off to some castings / go&sees, appointments, to do's and get to's.
If I have enough time, I'll definitely make friends with a stranger and ask her/him to take a quick snap of my outfit. 

I hope everyone is making the most of this beautiful day! 
Talk to you later, kiddos :) 



06082001 Finally

A couple days ago I was invited to an event called MODE TALKING which was presented by peng! magazine. 
I knew a couple of my kiddos would be there, so of course my saturday night plan was to hop into a semi-comfi outfit and unleash the crazy jibber jabber. 
The music was great and the location - the beautifully renovated pool area of Volksgarten - splendid.  I had a really good time talking to friends and workmates, I usually only get to hang out with every so often. Since we all travel quite a bit it appears quite challenging to keep in track with each others lives. 

Now for the outfit
I love combining delicate, sheer, flowy materials with rather rough materials.
To dress it up or down I either pop on a pair of pleasurably masochistic heels and jewelry OR I just throw on some sneakers.

Toe the Line

5 for silver, 6 for gold, 7 for a secret never to be told *

 As most of you may have noticed, I don't like drawing a lot of attention to my beautiful hands. 
I prefer having all eyes on my thoughtfully deformed feet! 
I wanted to post a close up.
Then I realized, there might be a discreet foot fetishist among us. Supposedly, it's quite easy to scare them away, like cats. - Easily found but hard to keep relaxed and drolly-jolly. 
(If you are a foot fetishist: I am not saying that you are a cat. just cat like. I love cats! Chances are, I might love you too!)
Anyways, I decided not to risk anyone running to the next trash can with haste!

I just wanted to show you my diy minx nails!
Although, I applied the Essence nail fashion sticker (~2€) the no-no way they still look pretty fierce after the third day. 
I would definitely recommend watching Lisa Eldrige's short tutorial as I find the instructions on the actual packaging incomplete. 

The only things I did different were a, I used a blow dryer rather then one of the many infrared light lamps that are hanging out in our apartment (jk) and b, I found filing off the excess foil way too annoying so I simply chopped it off using a kitchen knife. Alright you caught me. That sounds way to nifty and badass to be me, I used an ordinary scissor. 

Has anyone of you ever tried giving yourself or a friend a minx makeover?

oh! and btw I just goggled foot fetish and apparently they have their on pornographic (I don't know if that word even applies in that case) youtube version.
Oh dear world wide web, you make me smarter and smarter every day!
What would I do without all that pointless information?
What would YOU do without it?   

  * this week I attended a conetmporary class (the teacher was Jed O'Grady)  in the scope of Impulstanz.
We choreographed a piece about and around the number 7. 
This was one of the quotes we used.


I want

a 9 year old's birthday party on my nails!
See, even Coco is shocked.

For years I've been dreaming of having a pink room filled with nothing else but tons and tons of glitter to drown in and to play around with. And I want - NO, I demand some type of compensation for every year I have to spend waiting for this dream to come true!

Last year on a hot hot summer day in Barcelona I decided to buy a couple of Mac glitters. Later that day, I wanted to do my eye makeup using one of them. I popped it right open and seconds later I found myself spellbind by all the glitter floating around the bathroom. I watched it gasping some indefinable sounds with delight while smiling from ear to ear. 
The saddest and most beautiful glimmer moment ever!
Obviously we had to delay our dinner plans 'cause I was too busy fooling around in bedazzle heaven.

One year has passed and I am glitz-desperate!
And as we all know - Whatever Lola want's, Lola get's.  (kinda)

And then I saw this...
Deborah Lippmann's nail polish in Happy birthday, a more compact and less absurd version of the ultimate-glitzyglam-overkill-room. This beautifully designed bottle is jam-packed with a ridiculous amount of metallic confetti. Two coats of this and you'll be able to walk around in a paper bag and unwashed hair without anyone noticing. 
How great and convenient is that?
(btw. If you try this and my thesis fails, I am not liable for any loss of your social status. But I would be more than happy to receive your pictures)
I need little kids messing around with soap bubbles and cake on my toes, preferably with a pink base coat beneath it!

How well developed are your glitter-genes? 
Are they badass like mine?


Ps: Just in case you also happen to have trouble finding deborah, I think after shipping and handling House of Fraiser is the cheapest way of getting you hands on some bottled up party.  


Someone is hunting Me!

The last time our landline phone rang was about 4 years ago. 
Something went wrong and all of a sudden no phone calls got through.
We got used to it. People trying to reach us got used to it. 
Everything was fine!

Yesterday night at 4.21 am I woke up imaging a loud ear-piercing noise. Some jerk decided to call the landline and surprisingly, i t  w o r k e d ! 
The person did not hang up after the 5th ring - probably the most annoying character trait!

I started to totally freak out!
The type where you are too scared to run around in circles screaming.
I had to think of a good solution!

Solution #1: Hide under the blanket. - FAIL! As I said before the person must have been quite determined to scare the heck out of me. 

I don't use this word very often. Maybe I do. 
Not in posts anyways. But I feel like I need to give you a full impact on how angry and scared I was. 

Crazy thoughts strated to pop into my mind!

  • What is if it's the girl from the movie "The Ring" that finally wants to tell my that in 7 days I will die a horrific death? 

(Are you laughing? I hope not. I'm dead serious! I was 15 years old when I saw this movie. Half a year later I still showered with the TV on full volume, the shower curtain and bathroom door wide open and a bathrobe close to the shower - All so I could run as fast as I could as soon as I heard the creepy girl entering my home through the TV.)

  • What is if, it's a serial killer or someone who want's to rape me? And he/she is just calling to check if I'm on my own? 
  • What if, it's just a relative calling? But then again everyone who has this number knows that it "doesn't work!"

After what seemed to be the 20 ring, I decided that it had to be either the wicked chick or the serial killer calling!
Great conclusion, right?
I think so.

Solution #2: Pull the plug. - It worked. The ringing stopped for heck's sake!

I was able to go back to bed but not back to sleep.
I remembered that I had forgotten to lock the door. Not a good thing when you assume that there was serial killer calling for you a few seconds ago!
I dared myself to walk to the door and lock it.
Back to bed.

Still not back to sleep.
I gotta pee...

ps: you guys! I just googled "the girl from the ring" so I could post her image and the image of a serial killer below.
Not a good idea!
Now I'm back to being scared as s***! Think of those little babies from the movie Monsters Inc. 


Apartment Inspirations.

Words that SOAK into your ears are whispered...not yelled. 

Take your time and enjoy.

Never mind the closet!
I neeeeeeed the shoes!!!

I love the combination of turquoise walls with pink and yellow accents.  
Screw calming rooms, this is just way too fresh!
Last year I painted one of my bedroom walls this exact shade of teal. Up until now I was too shy (Yes, me. I can be very shy!)to add pink accents into the mix. 
I need more NEON PINK in my live (bedroom included), that's for sure!

One day I will have too much time and patience on my hand. Praise that day - A beautiful door will be born. 
It might just take a million years 'till this day will arise...

 A door, in a door, in a door, in a door, in a door, in a door, in a door, in a door. 
The ultimate Alice feel. 
I love Alice.
I will make this door happen, even if it's in a later stage of my life. 

Now for more in general inspiring Rooms.

That's a lot to take in and with you. 
I hope you got inspired to change up your space to whatever your crazy mind desires.


Ps: Most of the pictures were taken off of designe sponge.



I couldn't help but notice you, noticing me, noticing you.

This beautiful scenery behind me is Salzburg! 
I have grown to love and miss it. Right now I'm missing it! 
Hopefully I'll be back by sunday. 

On thursday night my bf and I met up with some friends at one of my favourite wine bars - Wein&Co. 
The wine was delicious, the company hilarious and the night amazing! 
As simple as that. 

Long sleeved T - Forever21 / Leather Skirt - H&M / The new killer Drumsticks - ZARA Sale / 
Fluorescent Satchel - The Cambridge Satchel Company




I'm usually the type of person that goes completely crazy during sales! 
It's kind of my best friend, Catalina and my thing. We get up really early and make sure to constantly keep the coffee flowing and the caffein shock going. Just so we can enjoy an entire day of raw shopping madness.
We always have the best time doing this!

Unfortunately she was in Switzerland when the sale started and she will be there for another 2 months. 
If there aint no harsh truth, tracking dog Cati, there aint no SALE. - Kind of at least...

Never the less, I could not resist strolling through the stores a couple of weeks after the sale started.
Most of the items I loved were already sold out in my size - so frustrating!
                            And then I SCORED ON THESE DRUMSTICKS! 

Hell Yeah!
So sensual and light...
Plus they look absolutely stunning with every and any outfit!
And and and they remind me teeny tiny bit of a pair of Alexander Wangs.

S C O R E !
...and the winner is me


Ps: I bought them on thursday. I assume you might still be able to get a hold of them.
