To feel most confident in my clothes I have to dress either like the wannabe-member of a rock band (did I tell I actually used to play in a band? See.) or like the cast member of a Western movie. Here, I am trying to go for the latter. I'm wearing my shearling coat from H&M's studio collection, a Zara shirt, Paige jeans and Topshop western boots. The coffee doesn't go with the outfit but it was necessary due to acute November-greyness.

The search for the perfect skinny leather trousers can be a difficult one. I own a pair of skinny J Brands, and while I liked it very much when I bought it, the leather has stretched quite a bit over time, which means that the trousers are not as skinny anymore as I would like them to be ... Big problem, I know, but we still have to address it, no? ;)
I had been looking for another pair of skinny leather trousers for a while but was never sure which one to get - and now I can finally share a recommendation. Enter BLK DNM. I love the silver zippers and quilted details of the above trousers. I'm sure they'll become a new wardrobe staple this winter (got them at Anita Hass).
What I'm wearing with them: T-Shirt by Zara, cardigan by Monki, Chloé "Susanna" boots (which I found on ebay) and Chanel Boy bag.Shop my wardrobe here.

Above are four of my beauty staples that I wanted to share with you. I have been using Maybelline's liquid eyeliner for years - maybe because I have gotten so used to its brush and texture, for me it works best to create that cateye line.
When it comes to lip colour, in contrast, there isn't one brand that I like most. You can find anything from YSL, Chanel and Armani to drugstore brands in my bathroom. I own several lip sticks from the "Color Sensational" line by (again) Maybelline and, if you ask me, "Coral Pop" is one of the best colours among them.
I only recently came across the LCN blusher "Peaches and Cream" and it quickly became a favourite. It smells amazing (nomen est omen, I guess) and has a lovely discreet shimmering effect.
Last but not least, if - like me - you are a person who is never patient enough to wait for nail polish to dry, you simply must try out Astor's quick dry topcoat. It has made my life a lot easier.

I just wanted to let you know that I have added A LOT of new things to my shop. I am trying to reduce my wardrobe a bit and I have decided to sell things like my Iro biker gilet, Miu Miu Vitello Lux bag, many accessories, shoes, jewellery, jeans, ... Have a look!

This jacket is going to become a good friend of mine this winter. You might have seen it here and it's still available in the Asos store. I love that it's super soft and fits very much like a vintage fur coat (without that greasy feel that old fur tends to get). I'm wearing it with a grey tank top by Paige, very old Topshop Baxter jeans and Topshop Arson Flame western boots (seen in the last picture).

Once it gets colder and we have to spend more time indoors I know I will begin to work on my apartment again. I need to buy paint and repaint some furniture, I still have to find the perfect dining table, I need to buy more lamps (beautiful lamps make such a difference!), and I'd love to get some old, worn out rugs for the hallway.

With this post I confirm what I said about the renaissance of my teenage wardrobe. Yes, the plaid skirt, too, is back. However, today I'd like to wear it as a longer, more feminine, less school girl skirt. And definitely I need a pair of heavy, boyish loafers to go with it. From top to bottom: sunglasses by Miu Miu, opal ring by wwake (I am obsessed with opals! Aren't they the most beautiful stones on this planet?!), jumper by Tibi, plaid skirt by Steffen Schraut, bag by Saint Laurent, and shiny tassle loafers by Mellow Yellow.
By the way: I have added a lot of new things to MY STORE – Lala Berlin, Zara, Le Specs, Topshop, French Connection, Pilgrim ... Go check it out!

In my early teens I used to own a black suede and shearling coat (anybody remember H&M's brand "Rocky"?), while my preferred boots were black Doc Martens. It seems like fashion history is repeating itself on a personal level, too.
Above you can see one of my favourite looks of the moment. I feel so comfortable in my new lace up boots (a Zara bargain!) and that H&M shearling jacket (I'm so in love with its oversize egg shape. ... I'm afraid I'll have to ignore my boyfriend's opinion here. Men don't seem to understand this look). The colour block jumper is by Hush – I've featured all of the named pieces before here –, the jeans are old Baxters by Topshop and the bag is Proenza Schouler.

If you've seen my September wishlist you will know that I am very much in love with black and grey basics (yet again). So it's no surprise that the items I added to my wardrobe this season make a perfect monochrome ensemble. These are my current favourites (preferably worn with skinny black leather trousers): oversized shearling jacket (or rather: coat, if you're about my height) from H&M's studio collection, block jumper by Hush and Proenza Schouler PS1 wallet on a chain, chunky silver bangles and rings, lace-up boots by Zara, and handmade scandi style wool jumper (Danke, Mama!).
