Back to Uranus, Said the Aquarius

A fairly casual outfit for those days when you don't have any big plans. This is the kind of thing I am wearing on those days where all I do is drop off my son at the kindergarten and maybe run some quick, uneventful errands. Grocery shopping, I am looking at you. Uneventful includes also getting supplies for the repair work I am doing

Un outfit abbastanza casual per quelle giornate dove non hai dei grandi piani. Questo è il tipo di look che indosso nelle giornate dove tutto cio che devo fare fuori casa è portare mio figlio all'asilo e magari qualche commissione non particolare. Fare la spesa, per esempio. Nel non particolare è anche incluso rifornirsi di materiali per le riparazioni che faccio.

Ein Outfit, dass ich doch als eher casual bezeichnen wuerde, fuer die Tage wo man keine grossen Plaene hat. Das ist dass, was ich an den Tagen anziehe, wo ich nur meinen Sohn in den Kindergarten bringe und kleinere Besorgungen erledige. Lebensmitteleinkauf, ich schaue Dich an. Unter ereignisarm laeuft aber z.B. auch Material fuer meine Reparaturarbeiten zu besorgen.

Blue and White, some Stripes and some Flowers

I wore this for an informal lunch at my in-laws today. It is still warm enough during the days to allow for bare legs and I am going to absolutely do this till the last minute.
This shirt dress you've seen before in this post. Today I've changed it up ever so slightly. Different shoes (seen also here) and a different bag (first seen here), the sleeves let down, not belted and with a very light top in a contrasting print layered below.

Oggi ho indossato questo per un pranzo informale dai miei suoceri. Fa ancora abbastanza caldo per permettersi di andare in giro con le gambe nude ed io ho intenzione di fare proprio questo fino all'ultimo minuto. 
Il vestito a camicia l'avete già visto in questo post. Oggi ho leggermente cambiato l'abbinamento. Scarpe diverse (viste ancora qui) e una borsa diversa (dapprima vista qui), le maniche lasciate giù, niente cintura e sotto un top leggerissimo con stampa diversa da quella dell'abito.

Das hatte ich heute fuer eine Einladung zum Mittagessen bei den Schwiegereltern an. Hier ist es zur Zeit tagsueber noch warm genug fuer nackte Beine und ich habe vor, dass bis zur letzten Minute auszunutzen.
Dieses Blusenkleid habt Ihr hier in diesem Post schon einmal gesehen. Heute habe ich nur ein paar kleine Aenderungen vorgenommen. Andere Schuhe (hier schon gesehen), die aber doch nicht soooo anders sind und eine andere Tasche (hier zum ersten Mal), die Aermel nicht aufgerollt, den Guertel abgemacht und darunter ein leichtes Top in kontrastierendem Muster.

PFW - Special Love to A.F. Vandevorst

Special Love

From Milan we've moved onto Paris a couple of days ago, were yet more designers are presenting their collections for Spring/Summer 2015. Here is one collection that I really liked a lot. And I mean A LOT. There's one thing I'd change so. I'd ditch the lace up boots. Fancy to look at, I am entirely too self concious (maybe exaggeratedly so) and too lazy for them.

MFW Day 5 - Top 20 Favorite Looks

The Opener


My personal favorite of that day? Marni. I would have dedicated them "Special Love", but then there would have been little left over for this post, because the rest was, in my opinion, so so. Trussardi bored me. Dolce & Gabbana idem. It was a bit different, but yet the same. Not all bad, but not really exciting either. Maybe it is just me, they did after all what they do best. And there's lots of dresses.

Fashion Find - I.N.O.X. Victorinox

I.N.O.X. - A companion for life-time

Everyone who has followed my blog and other social adventures for a while, knows that I do like to incorporate masculine elements into my outfits. And if you would have known me for a little longer, you'd know that I've been a fan of the Swiss Army Knife since early ages. A good thing to have in one's bag.

As a natural consequence, my eye would fall upon I.N.O.X. by Victorinox.
Made to last, this timeless watch was build according to the values of the Swiss Army Knife, robust, authentic and reliable in all conditions.

Jeans On the Wild Side - Funky Jungle Print

Funky Jungle

Here is another piece (or two) of thrift goodness. I found this shirt with funky animal print on a flea market for 50Cent (fiddy cent!). It is way large for me and has shoulderpads, a little detail that makes it a probability that it might actually be vintage. But really, I bought it for the print. Funky Jungle. 'Nough said.

The belt is thrifted as well. I paid 2 Euros for it. For all I know, it could even be genuine.

And the "self-distressed" (as in, they distressed themselves) jeans you already know from my "Blue Jeans, White Shirt..." post. I paired both with my knew over the top Buffalo heels, which I showed off here, because come on, you gotta strut with this shirt.

Qui c'è un altro esempio (o due) della bontà del risparmio. Ho trovato questa camicia con stampa animalier molto funky su un mercatino delle pulci a soli 50 centesimi (fiddy cent!). È troppo grande per me e inoltre ha dei cuscinetti sulle spalle, il che rende molto probabile il fatto che sia veramente un pezzo vintage. La verità è che l'ho presa per la fantasia. Funky Jungle. Detto tutto.

Anche la cintura l'ho comprata di seconda mano. L'ho pagata 2€. Per quello che ne so, potrebbe anche essere vera.

E i jeans "self distressed" (vuol dire, si sono rotti da soli) li conoscete già dal mio post "Blue Jeans, White Shirt...". Ho abbinato camicia e jeans con i miei nuovi sandaletti strepitosi di Buffalo che vi ho fatto vedere già qui. Perchè parliamoci chiaro, con questa camicia bisogna pavoneggiarsi.

Hier ist ein weiteres Beispiel (oder zwei) dafuer was man tolles beim Thriften finden kann. Diese Bluse mit dem funky Gepardenmuster habe ich fuer 50 Cent (fiddy cent!) auf dem Flohmarkt gekauft. Ist mir viel zu gross und hat ausserdem Schulterpolster, ein kleines Detail, dass einen darauf schliessen laessen koennte, dass es sich hierbei um ein sog. Vintage Stueck handelt. Egal. Ich habe das Teil wegen dem Muster gekauft. Funky Jungle. Das sagt schon alles.

Auch den Guertel habe ich aus einem Secondhand Laden. Fuer den habe ich 2€ bezahlt. Und fuer alles was ich weiss, koennte der auch echt sein.

Und die "self distressed" (das heisst, die haben sich selbst zerstoert) Jeans kennt Ihr bereits von meinem "Blue Jeans, White Shirt..." Post. Ich habe beides mit meinen extravaganten Buffalo Sandalen, die ich hier gezeigt hatte, kombiniert. Weil, reden wir mal Klartext, mit so einer Bluse muss man stolzieren.

MFW Day 4 - Top 22 Favorite Looks

The Opener

Emilio Pucci

Day 4: I liked Roberto Cavalli more then Just Cavalli. Absolutely adored Marras this time. Giorgio Armani was solid chic. Jil Sander wasn't bad but a tad boring. Pucci had a couple beautiful looks, but a bit repetitive as well. Beautiful shade of blue at Ermanno Scervino.
