Hello all, right now i am on my way to Asia where i will spend 3 weeks holidays. Can’t wait for the sun!!!
But before i left i prepared a few outfit post so that you guys still have something to read on my blog.
For this outfit i tried the risky midi knit dress. How do you like it? I could not imagine wear it with anything else than boots. What do you say? Good choice? If not with which shoes would you wear this dress?
I was wearing :
Dress : Asos
Shoes : Kurt Geiger (2013)
Christmas is around the corner so i wanted to do a Christmas shopping selection that is made of products of high quality. Indeed i think that it’s ok to buy crap from time to time but for some very special occasion, like Christmas for example it’s a good opportunity to treat yourself or your close family and friends and buy things that last.
Shinola is a shop from Detroit, USA that recently opened shipping to Germanny and that is selling manufacturing goods. From a jacket, to a backpack through an ipad or iphone case you will fine lots of useful accessories. Above you can see my favourite items from their shop.
One more reason why i like Shinola is that i am interested in the City of Detroit and it’s history. It’s no secrt the city has had some pretty hard times and i feel like Shinola is helping rebuilding the industry and the economy out there.
Yesterday i took a flight to Frankfurt to do my Christmas shopping in Wertheim Village. It is the second that that i go there ( read about my first time HERE), Wertheim Village is part of the Chic Outlet Villages which concept is to do luxury shopping at moderate prices. Indeed what you find in the stores are items from the previous seasons. It is generally the last season that you find though, so that what you buy is still modern.
Last year also i went to Wertheim Village during the Christmas periode, they always put effort in the decorations, it is lovely decorated for the occasion so that the village is even more cute than it is habitually. For all who have to buy lots of things for their friend and family for Christmas it’s the perfect place because you can find everything : for men, women, children, clothes, accessories, beauty and home furniture.
I personally bought a present for myself at Versace. A blue navy bag that is very classic and that i know i will wear for years. It was 50% off so i think i really did a good buy.
Beside Versace i also had a few favorite stores : l’Occitane, Coach, Furla, Superdry, Michael Kors, Strenesse, Nike and the newly opened Polo Ralph Lauren Store.
Christmas shopping at Wertheim is also a spare of time because all stores ( more than hundred) are located in the same area so that you don’t waste your time by running around like you would do in the city.
On that day i was wearing : Sweater : Chicwish, Jeans : Monki, Sneakeres : Superga
hello hello, if you follow me on Instagram (@lesberlinettes) you probably saw that i was in Vienna last week.
Vienna is such a beautiful and magic city especially during Christmas and is also the new hometown of the Olympus Playground. The Olympus playground exists since a few years now, it is an ephemere place for art (it was in Berlin twice already, Berliners, did you visit?!). There you can borrow an Olympus camera and play around while testing the various art installations and this is exactly what we did while in Vienna with Olympus.
We also improved our photography skills by capturing the Vienna’s magic Christmas lights with the compact but oh so efficient Olympus Pen LP7.
*During the day i was wearing : Eleven Elfs Down Jacket
All pictures taken with the Olympus Pen LP7.
Hello!! if you follow me on Instagram you probably saw that i went to a 20′s party last weekend. This is a little i organized with the liqueur brand St Germain.
St Germain is a french liqueur flavored with elderflowers and the bottle is super well designed and remembers the art deco style that was famous in the 1900′s. So we came up with the idea to recreate the atmosphere of this time.
I met with some bloggers friends in Kreuzberg at the Prinzipal bar around 8pm and we then got our hair and make up done while tasting cocktails made of the St Germain Liqueur. My favorite cocktails are the St Germain cocktail that is made of : St germain, Sparkling wine or champagne, and club soda as well as the Daiquiri made of St germain, Rum, Lime juice and simple syrup. So tasty.
We then watched a burlesque show in the bar (you can go too of you want, Prinzipal bar is open to everyone you just need to dress nicely). and then went to the famous Bohème Sauvage party. I have heard a lot about this party already, it is very famous amongst 20′s lovers. When you enter the room it’s like you would be back in time. Beside performances and music, you can also play games like roulette, have your portraits draw, etc.
Enjoy the pictures below and feel inspired to organized a St Germain 20′s party for New year’s Eve maybe. Don’t forget to check all recipes HERE.
It has been ages that i didn’t wear a down jacket. Last time, i was probably 15 i stopped wearing them because i think, most are pretty boring. I really like the one i wear in this post from Eleven Elfs that is available on Luxodo, it’s so fun with the pink details, so unexpected for winter clothes.
As you probably saw on Instagram, i was in Cologne last week for the opening of the first Sabon store in Germany (Sabon comes from the USA)
I have to say that i didn’t know Sabon very well before, or at least that they have such a bride range of products. They basically have everything from Soap to Interior perfume. Actually everything you need to feel like in paradise in your bathroom. It’s pure luxury and they even have nail polish.
I am a huge fan of scrubs so it’s the first thing i tried while in the new store. I loved the jasmine scented scrub.
I was also super excited about the huge soap they cut in front of your eyes, you could even see the fruits inside used for the production.
Indeed everything is natural and all ingredients used for the fabrication of the products were displayed on the first floor of the shop (see pictures below).
So if you like to take care of yourself you know where to go, + i’m sure if you’re already running for Chritmas gifts you will find something at Sabon.
