I found a little something in a boutique the other day... 
Love the print, love the cut, love the softness of the fabric, love the quality. 
This one is going to have a long life my friends. 
Well done Missoni.
Merry Christmas to me ;).

Currently Reading

neu aus alt buch

Mach neu aus alt: Kleidung und Accessoires, the book I am currently being inspired by every night before I go to sleep is the German translation of Henrietta Thompson's Remake it: Clothes, a guide to save the world, save money, and have style. 

The book is full of "recipes" to make something new out of something old, as for example transform two old identical silk shawls into a summery top, wear your father's old shirt as a skirt, or create a bag to transport your pet out of a sweater.
Neal Whittington has charmingly illustrated every chapter in a super stylized and super cute way. Moreover, the book offer tips to take care of your beloved pieces to keep them as good as new and a whole list of incredible artists and designers specialized in recycling old fabrics, objects and pieces of clothing to make new ready-to-wear and haute couture creations.

If you are still looking a for a nice and meaningful Christmas gift: this book could really be something worth buying!

Swiss Bloggers Meet got2b

GvN-Styleblog was invited at the Swiss Blogger Meet got2b event 
at Schwarzkopf Professional's, a perfect occasion to meet other Swiss beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers and to get to know beauty secrets from the got2b hairdressers' crew.  
See what hair-stylist Augustino made with my hair in the pictures below...

Little did I know what Augustino was about to do with me when I sat down on his chair...

...But soon things started to get quite interesting.

After brushing my hair, he generously sprayed it with got2b glued hairspray (remember it from my product test post here?), tied it with a rubber band, and then backcombed it.

And then, finally, he showed me the result. 
Chic, right?

Trendy Mamas to Be, Here's Something for You!

For Eve



A while ago, I wrote a post on fashion for trendy mamas to be. However, since my now super pregnant besty asked me to write another one, how could I not obey?

Here are my fashionable suggestions for a cool baby bump: 

- No one does have to stick to maternity fashion every day. Elastic fabrics and clothes in one or two sizes bigger should do it as well.
- A super cosy and super practical uniform could be leggings, long tunics and cute fitted jackets.
Cool and comfy booties, cute hats, bold jewlry, cured nails and lipstick will spice up your basic pieces.  That's why...
-...You gotta take care of the details!  They are your best allies to add that glamour to your easy looks.
-Currently "en vogue" and perfect for future moms: ponchos or capes and dungarees, even tough these should be worn with some heels, as they tend to make every type of body a bit larger.

***This goes to you Evi: I am so happy for you sweety!***
