On turning 30

So on Monday I turned 30; a big day for a small girl. Unlike most women, I was not afraid of this day and in fact, I took it with grace and excitement. It felt like starting a new chapter in my life: Gone is the insecurity of the 20s, student life and worries about the future. At 30, I’m still healthy and look relatively young, know how I am and what I like, got steady income, plenty of good friends around me, and live in one of the greatest cities in the whole world. 30s is the new 20s but with benefits, so really – what’s not to like?

Silent sigh

The fall in Berlin has been absolutely beautiful and luckily there has been no rain which has allowed me to wear some lighter gear much longer than I ever expected. Hence, hail to the mini dresses, leggings and Ricks! Hopefully there are many more rain and snow free days to come, I’m just not ready for the winter while the fall is still offering its best.

From 2012 to 1931

As fascinating as the Paris fashion week is, it’s always nice to take a little break and do something totally non-fashion related and outside of the regular tourist traps. This time around my friend Dirk and I conquered yet another Le Corbusier masterpiece, the magnificent Villa Savoye in the town of  Poissy, located in the outskirts of Paris. For our little trip, I wore an outfit that has stuck on me like a glue this summer due to it’s lightweight and comfortable nature; a Rick Owens Lilies long dress, DRK SHDWleggings (both purchases from Paris) paired with an OBSCUR cardigan, and my dearSILENT sandals featured in the previous post. All I can say that it was a great day in great company, despite the looks we got from the townsfolk when two black figures hiked to the hilltop of Poissy in the sizzling +30C heat. Totally worth it though.

Perfect summer

I hope everyone’s summer has been as good as mine and full of lazy days. Going back to the routines is always a tough cookie but luckily I have some exciting things planned for the fall time, which will be all revealed in due course. I also have a few Paris posts still coming up but before getting into those, I’m introducing one of my favorite summer purchases: these black suede SILENT by Damir Doma sandals that have been on my feet non-stop since the moment I got them, as I literally walked out of the Paris Damir Doma store in these. I got them on a good discount which made the boys make fun of me since now the most comfortable shoes I own, are also the cheapest pair in my closet. Life is funny like that but at least it’s better for my wallet, and for my dear feet of course.
