rebekka ruétz - Lookbook SS 2012









rebekka ruétz's collection is one of the most unique collections I've seen.
Her interest in Oriental teachings brought her to India where she developed her vocation for traditional Chinese medicine.
What is unique about her collections is that on the inside of her clothes, there are different chakra prints that, according the Oriental tradition, help develop inner harmony. 
In fact, the designer's SS 2012 collection is devoted to slowness, idleness and easiness, and it mirrors the idea that fashion can be more than trends, it can express an entire philosophy. 
The nude tones, the white, gold, terracotta and pastel shades on the noble fabrics such as 
chiffon, silk and fine lace which were chosen for this collection perfectly mirror the state of peace and serenity that the artist wanted to bring to the fashion industry and our hectic society.  
I love the idea of a collection that brings more than just "pretty clothes" to the public. To dress chic and, at the same time, carry a deeper message through the own style (and possibly one of positivity and serenity): that's a nice aim! 
I'm with you rebekka! More please!

Above: some of my faves looks from the SS 2012 lookbook.

Hey guys! How are you? 
I'm back!!!!!
I had a very very veeery full week at the Bread and Butter in Berlin with Sal Y Limon, the brand I work for (the bangles in the third picture :)) .
It has been a very fruitful and interesting week, full of work but also fun, with loooong days, and in which work has had the absolute priority of course. 
The bad thing about this was, of course, that I did not find any time for posting....
But I'm back! I came home this morning and I am willing and ready to share with you some impressions.  
More pictures of my week at the BBB are coming soon! Promised!!!

Have a great Saturday!
A biiiig fat hug to you all!!!!!!

My Kreativ Blogger Award

First of all, I would like to thank The Photograph Collector, who honored me with this award :)!
As always, awards come with a list of questions, which I'll be glad to answer right away: 

1. Name your favorite song. I have many actually. The first that comes to my mind right now is "Browned eyed girl", by Van Morrison. A happy song :)!
2.  Name your favorite dessert. Tiramisu! With a lot of mascarpone and sugar and no alcohol and just a little coffee. Just like kids like it :)!
3. What ticks me off... Arrogance.
4. When I'm upset I... Go to my Body Combat class and give all! 
5. What's your favorite pet... Elephants :)! So big and goofy and so innocent and cute!  
6. Black or White... White! 
7. Biggest Fear...  Hairy big spiders!
8. Everyday Attitude... "Go and rock it girl!" That's what I keep repeating in the mirror in the morning! 
9. What is perfection? Something that does not exist. I'll give you my personal answer to the next question, namely how to cope with the fact that perfection does not exist: by accepting. Accepting in a very "zen" way. Not easy at all, but absolutely necessary to live well. 
10. Guilty Pleasure... Read the answer to question number 2 :)!

Seven Random Facts About Me: 1. I am in love :)! (Hey babe!) 2. I am kind of obsessed by order. 3. I am thinking of giving my living room's walls a neon hello touch. Risky! 4. I'm a vegetarian. 5. I am allergic to cats...which is a pity cause I long to cuddle one! 6. I am planning to sell my old clothes at a flea market for the second time. Loved it the first time! 7. I have an American accent when I speak English. 

I Would Like to Nominate....

You guys have yourself a lovely weekend :)!

A Matter of Signature


Do you know that nice feeling when you smell a fragrance which riminds your right away of a specific someone, beaucse it is the parfume he or she is used to wear? It's like that someone has left a signature.
Somehow I always wished to find my own signature, my own scent, but somehow, none of those I had tried could really give me that right feeling. None of them could make me feel like it was the parfume for me. 
Therefore, am I particularly glad to announce that I finally found it: Sensuous by Estée Lauder.

Molten Woods, Amber, Jasmine, Ghost Lily, Magnolia, Ylang, a hint of Pepper, and a touch of Honey.These are the ingredient to its intriguing, but elegant and delicate sweet smell. 

What about you? Have you found your own scent?

More Sales Purchases - Missoni & Jil Sander


Hey ya!
I've got some new entries to show you! Both are outlet purchases. The first one is a Missoni yellow short jacket, the second one a wintery Jil Sander wool belt, wich perfectly matches with a blazer of mine bought at Zara (you've already seen it here and here) as it has the same green shade on it.
The belt was really just a spontaneous lucky find. I saw it, loved it, and bought it.  
But the jacket has a longer story: I had seen it in a long time ago, and I found it incredibly cute, with its bright yellow, the golden threads, the short cut...But, the prize way to high of course. After all, it was a Missoni jacket! Well, I found it again a couples of days ago in a Missoni outlet, and could not leave it at the shop for the second time! It had to be destiny ;)! And this time the prize was really ok...So there really were no reasons not to buy it. It has immediately become one of my closet's favourite pieces :)! Can't wait to wear it this spring!

What about you guys? Have you found something you were long dreaming of during these sales too?
Happy sales to you all ;)!

Back from the Hair Stylist


Hello hello :)!
How is your weekend going?
Yesterday, I treated myself with a quick visit to the hairdresser. 
As I kept my current cut (it is just a tiny little bit shorter than it was before) I chose to add a curly style to it. After all, the greatest thing about going to the hair stylist is to sort out of the salon with something special. Right?

 I wish you all a very relaxing Sunday!

First Sales Purchases, First Outfit of the Year






Hello darlings! 
How was your New Year's Eve? 
Mine was a very cosy one, with a lot of Swiss cheese raclette (if you don't know what it is, it is a typical Swiss meal based on melted cheese and potatoes; nothing for diet freaks ;)), guitar hero, and Prosecco ;P!
But right before the 31st, I had a little tour in Zara (where else?), where I bought some new pretty things...Among them, this red top and this jacket. Do you like them? 
I wish you all a fantastic start in 2012!

Necklace - from a flea market in Frankfurt
Bracelet - Primark
Jacket, top, clutch & shoes - Zara
Skinnies - Tally Weijl
