SHOPPING LOVE: breathtaking dresses for glamorous events.

[en] hi peeps! i am invited to the shoe step award this year and isn't there a better excuse to take a fancy to go shopping for THAT perfect dress for a perfect night? i don't think so! 

and thus, some days ago when i stayed at my mum and stepfather's house we strolled around giessen and finally ended up with a whole shopping CART full of evening gowns and cocktail dresses. yes, it was a cart (filled with 15 dresses) because at TK MAXX 'well, that's the way it is' just as my mum has stated it, lol. and eventually, i found my dream dress - and i cannot wait to wear it on monday!

but you know, i'm actually not a fan of going shopping on a saturday: it's crowded and annoying and the queues are so long that, no matter how comfortable your shoes are, you definitely will be punished with some hella achy feet and well ... on most weekends i could definitely think of many other and better things to do. but this time it was quite funny, but also exhausting. i really noticed that i'm not used to SUCH shopping trips XD my last shopping trip on that scale was 1-2 years ago - no joke. 

what i like more is online shopping. it is available twenty-four-seven and if you know your size (or got a measuring tape and a size chart, as it is usually provided in onlineshops selling apparel) it is more than easy to find, order and eventually get your dream pick. it might solely be annoying that you have to wait some days before you can actually receive your dream pick and wear it for the very first time.

but that's viable when you've found some nice picks as i did at the mia berlin online store. i might purchase my next event dress there, because the styles are unique, flashy and elegant with the right amount of glamour (and glitter) - and that also fits to the dress code of my very first event i will attend in some days: easy glamour.

how do you like my selection?

what would you wear for a star event?

SHOOTING: i don't need a valentine, i need valentino.

[en] hi peeps! well, actually the post header doesn't speak the whole truth, because i do not only love my valentino red lace dress, but also my valentine for each day, le boy. and he himself also shot these photos which i really love and which i believe to be fabulous. he once stated that the subject or, in this case, the model, makes the perfect photo. well but i do not believe so. it is the photographer, in symbiosis with the subject/model, who creates the picture bursting with magic. this time i had desire of big hair and thus i backcombed it a little bit and fixed it with some hair spray. i haven't had such big hair for quite a long time - the last time must have been at my prom night in 2007 (oh it has now been some time!), where i also wore a floor-length red dress, but back then it was a ball gown. i combined the floor-length red lace dress with nude coloured high-heels and a sparkling golden clutch. this was the second time we had a shooting at schloss favorite - such a beautiful location for photos. not only because i'm a huge fan of baroque architecture! 

i hope that you like the photos!

SHOOTING/IMPRESSIONS: be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop.

[en] hello my dears! today i want to show you some impressions from my latest outfit shoot with le boy at schloss ebersteinburg near baden-baden. it was a perfect, sunny and colourful autumn day with a beautiful view over gernsbach and the river murg which are located in the northern black forest. during the shoot we also took some making-of shots and afterwards we enjoyed a nice glass of white wine at the homonymous restaurant schloss ebersteinburg.

SHOOTING: does the walker choose the path or the path the walker?

[en] hello my dears! since the days are getting colder and i still would love summer to restart, today i want to share some photos with you which still show some hint of summer mode, featuring a messy braid with flower pins, a hairstyle which i haven't worn for ages, and a twin set containing a neckholder shirt and a maxiskirt. its not in my ownership anymore, because my mum was so enthusiastic about it she wanted me to gift it to her. so i did, lol. but nevertheless ... when the shooting took place, it already had been so freakin cold, it was really freezy, you cannot imagine haha. but well, one always has to be professional, so i simply masked that out XD 

i hope you like the pictures!
