SHOPPING LOVE: flirty shoes for your perfect valentines' day outfit.

hi my dears! today i want to show you my selection of great shoes to accompany this years' valentines day outfit. for that special occasion i would choose outfits and styles which are flirty, sexy, yet always classy. you can do nothing wrong when chosing the LBD and style it with high heels because they are always great to form a sexy shape. when wearing the LBD a bit of colour is a great contrast and definitely a must-wear,  because it can brighten up your whole outfit. ribbons are great for first dates and sequins and embellishments great to give your outfit an extra glamorous twist. lace styles dress up your feet, yet have a sensual twist. i would choose one of these styles for this years' valentines day.

don't hesitate to give a good account of yourself, because this is the day of love, and the beginning of the most beautiful season: spring.

what will you wear for your boy or girl and how do you like my selection and advices?

SHOOTING: i dreamt i dwelt in marble halls.

[en] hello my dears. today i want to show you the third outfit from my latest fashion shooting with photographer alexander ricci in the beautiful rococo castle gardens in schwetzingen. this time we shooted at the minerva temple with its' warm shades of white ... it is a depiction of antique architecture and alexander stated that the contrast of white would harmonize perfectly with the contrast of my bright red D&G dress. it was the first time i ever wore it for a shooting, although i have worn it several times before on special occasions. le boy had seen it twice or thrice before and he also liked it very much. i'm still in love with the dress ... and the photos. this was my favourite part of the shooting and i hope that you like the results.

TRAVELLING LOVE: when in vienna.

[en] hello my dears. today i want to show you some first impressions of my birthday trip to vienna. it was my first time, but it surely won't be the last. it was beautiful. the whole city is art. frescos, chandeliers, baroque buildings, gothic cathedrals and so much beauty so enchanting you cannot believe your eyes. we have heard rain with the sound of carriages which drove through the whole city, we ate wiener schnitzel, sacher cake and chinese noodles, visited the theatre and saw a musical, got to know many different, dear and some crazy people, lit candles at the steffl, said hello to monet, klimt and the hagenbund and celebrated a birthday party i surely will never forget in my whole life, overlooking the cathedral with sparkling wine and much more love than already felt before. i will keep all these memories close to my heart ... forever. and i will show you more photos in the upcoming posts. we'll always have vienna.
