MY 2014 :: AND NOW TIME TO FOCUS


It's a new year - time to focus on a new, unencumbered future
Okay, soooo .. I don't know where to start in all honesty. It feels super weird that this year is coming to an end, but let's review 2014 and then look forward to 2015. I'll try to keep it as short as possible, but I thought about doing a different new years eve post than in the last two years. It will be more personal than ever and filled with fun instagram pictures! =) Hope you like it!

CHRISTMASSY IN THE AIR


Merry Christmas to all of you tiny LOC readers! 


Promise to keep this post short so you can go back, watch 'Home Alone' and relax with your beloved ones as well as enjoy a delicious christmas feast! I have to admit that I wasn't really in christmas mood during the pre-christmas time, but after spending a weekend in lovely Vienna, which is probably one of the most beautiful cities, there was more of what I call christmassy in the air. So here's a little post with an all black outfit, paired with glitter flats and red details in front of the Grand Hotel in Vienna! I hope you like todays pictures!


As I told you in yesterday's post, I'm going to take a few days off, so we will see each other probably on New Years Eve here on LOC! Hopefully you'll get to enjoy some magical moments in the upcoming days - I am now off wishing you an amazing christmas, lots of love and fun! xx

BEFORE CHRISTMAS :: ALL COSY SWIPING


Hello lovlies and ALMOST Merry Christmas to you! I have decided to give myself a break and go on a little holiday which means, I'm going to post less in the next two weeks. Since christmas time is an equal for quality time, I will stay with my family and friends for the next four days in lovely Austria, followed by going back to Berlin where I am working for uni and my upcoming lookbook - yay! Can't wait for 2015 and all the amazing things I want to do, but first, I need to just sleep, eat and watch movies with my sisters. I've actually been doing this in the past few weeks already, since I was non-stop sick, there was not much I could do instead. And just in time, as I was watching PLL and browsing through my phone, I discovered Swipy. It's a new app that works similar to Tinder, just for clothing. Honestly, I have never been on a Tinder date before and my friends keep telling me that its indispensable, but I'd rather have a Swipy date instead, where we all share our favorite items! Just like on Tinder, you swipe right if you like what you see, or left if you don't! It's super handy, cause all the things you liked will be on your wishlist and you can shop them later on! Trust me, my wishlist grow tremendously in the past few weeks =) The app has just launched, so if you wanna have a look you can download it right here or check their website! For keeping in touch I started following them on their social media channels, Instagram and Facebook, as the founders are a group of young guys I'm sure there'll be more to come, so I'd stay tuned! 

I hope you're all doing fine and hopefully christmas time wasn't too stressful for you. I've just arrived at my parents place after a really long weekend in Berlin where I worked three days in a row and partied a lot. Not my kinda thing but now I feel prepared for new years eve ;-) There'll be a short post tomorrow around lunch time, so make sure you have a look! Love you all, xx

BLACK AND WHITE :: VEILED BEANIE AND OVERKNEES



Hey guys! It's Thursday already, and Christmas and New Years Eve is so soon! I still can't believe that this year is almost over, but we will talk about this in a special post on the 31st! Right now I am quite annoyed about myself, properly speaking, my body. Turns out I've got another cold, the third or fourth within the last few weeks, and this time it's probably the worst timing ever. But since all my blogposts are more or less about being sick, stressed out and suffering from whatsoever, I will stop talking about my weak little body and talk to you about today's outfit! I ordered this white dress months ago via Asos and actually never knew how to pair it. I knew that I wanted to pair it with black tights, since I love this contrast a lot, but of course it's way too cold outside without a coat/cape thingy. This black and white cape from Primark goes perfectly with the length of the dress. A red lippy, veiled beanie and my overknees round off this look. What do you think about the whole outfit? 

I am at uni right now, planning my exams in January and I am so so looking forward to the holidays, although it will be a lot about studying and working. We'll be working on Wolfschluckner again, which I had to let slip in the past two weeks, but I am super excited to show you my little crew that is super motivated to get things started =) Stay tuned and see you soon on tiny LOC blog! Happy Thursday! xx

ALL WHITE :: VIENNA COURT THEATRE


Hello everybody! How was your weekend? As you might know, if you follow my social media and read the last post on LOC, I flew to Vienna Saturday morning and came back yesterday evening, as we celebrated my sisters uni graduation. This weekend was all about food and spending time with the family, but now I'm back in Berlin, it's the last week before christmas and I am craaaazy busy. Unfortunately I'm still sick so I have to take it slow unless I'll be all sick during my winter holidays, but there is still a lot of stuff going on at Uni. I almost had a massive breakdown this morning when safari didn't work anymore, which is also the reason why I am posting sometime in the afternoon. My lovely flatmate Tobi is already working on fixing it, but it could happen that posts will be published irregularly this week - sorry about that!

For my sisters uni graduation, I decided to wear something that looks chic and sophisticated, but also has a touch of edgy in it. I have already told you that I love to add a little sparkle to my outfits during christmas time, so this skirt from H&M came in handy. Usually, I am not sure about light colored skirts and black tights, but in this case I absolutely love the combination! Besides, this look is perfect for the scenery in the back right? I shot these pictures with my other sister in front of the court theatre in Vienna. Vienna has so many pretty places to shoot, especially in wintertime it's one of the most beautiful cities I know. All these old buildings, the history combined with new arrangements and their christmas markets - oh my .. Anyways, I hope you like todays outfit! thanks for reading, xx

SPARKLING MINT GREEN TURBAN :: HOME POST

pictures taken by Sarah

Hello everybody!! Hope you're doing fine =) Since its getting cold outside, I thought about doing a home post once again. It is actually the best idea, as I am suffering from a bad cold for more than two weeks already. I tried every single medicine that's available at the pharmacy and even combined them with household remedy, but nothing seems to work. I guess it is because I don't have any time to rest, but that is the reason why we shot these pictures inside, so my weak body gets to calm down in the warm =) My girl Sarah just moved into her very own first flat in Berlin Wedding, so we had to take advantage of the yet unfurnished rooms ;-) Here are a few shots with my latest investment, this gorgeous mint green turban with a few sparkling details! I love it to pieces and had to get my hands on it! It is from Zara by the way, and still available =) Always in November and December I get obsessed with everything sparkling and girly - still, its not that easy to find sparkling garments or accessories, if you don't wear any jewelry, but somehow I always find new  ins! This turban really reminds me of Carrie's from the New Years Eve scene in Sex and the City, the movie, part I. Don't you think so too?

Anyways, I hope you like todays pictures! While you read this, I'll be doing a presentation at uni, which I am preparing at this very moment, while writing this ;-) So much for multitasking. Thanks for reading! Love you all, xx

FURRY BAG AND CHECKED CAPE


'Busy is a decision'
This really is one of my favorite outfits of in a while. I absolutely love everything about it, and I could wear it every single day, probably with a coat, keeping that layer game on! Beanies, furry accessories and platform shoes are my current favorites and go with almost everything! To round it all up, I like to wear skirts, big statement cardigans/capes and a cute shirt. My sister borrowed me this amazing cape, which is super comfy, and who would have thought, it's from Primark and still in stock, so you can all get it for yourself if you like it ;-) 

I just decided to try being less busy and stressed out. I had a really interesting weekend talking and thinking a lot about being this busy all the time, as in, I work every day from dusk till dawn, seven days a week and I am constantly ill for more than two weeks already. I don't want to complain, because the thing is, if I love something, I just can't stop thinking about it and get all obsessed until I'm finished or it is over. I love uni and my tasks as much as I love my blog, taking pictures and creating outfits. But above all these things, I love to create, sketch and sew. I am currently struggling with managing all these things without neglecting one, and decided out of the blue to just stop being busy, as busy is a decision. We all decide to have a schedule, a to do list and I always put way too many things on my bucket list and then feel miserable after not ticking them off. I cannot quarter myself so new rule is: first things first. It is really important to keep on track, but the most important thing is to give yourself a break when you really need it. So, I usually don't do new years resolutions, but this time I am telling myself to be less busy. It is just not worth it (and I guess I should be more disciplined, but that is another story) ;-) I really hope you all relax on your weekends, and if you're in a busy place like me right now, just keep going and give yourselves a break every once in a while! Go see a movie, get yourself some hot wine at the christmas market or just lie in bed thinking about nothing! Happy Monday lovlies, xx

GREY :: CREEPERS AND STRAIGHT CUT DRESS


'this is the distance, and this is my game face'
Hello everybody! It's been a little quiet around here - I somehow ended up blogging twice a week and only managed to show you nine outfits in November. I can't promise to do better in December, as I have lots of stuff to do, but I will do my best! I am currently fighting against another flu as the central heating in the store I'm working is broken, makes working less fun at the moment. The weather in Berlin has gotten reeeeeally cold, and I kind of miss living in the south =P I hope it's warmer wherever you live, as this is really hard for me to shoot outfit pictures that are not just about layering! I shot these with my mum about a week ago, where I was wearing this amazing grey straight cut dress from COS together with my new creepers. We found them in Mango's and I just had to get my hands on them, since I completely fell in love with the Stella McCartney ones, only: they are never ever gonna be my price range. At first it feels weird wearing them, as it's one platform, but I got used to it and now love to wear 'flats' that make me taller as well ;-)

I really hope you all survived Black Friday without a totally ruined bank account - I went a little mad with my sister as she came over to visit me, and a shopping trip to Mitte and Kudamm had to be ticked off her bucket list! I will show you my latest investments asap, but for now, I am off to have breakfast, drink tea and stop by the pharmacies before heading off to uni! Have a great great Tuesday! Lots of love, xx

LACEY :: ALL BLACK

pictures taken by Linda


Happy Friday guys! I am in full family mode, as last week my mum came over to visit me, and yesterday, one of my sisters arrived at mine. Therefor, my weekend will be all about good food, shopping and some sightseeing. My sister has never been to Berlin before, so I’ve planned a few things and I am so looking forward to brunch with her at suicide sue and just spoil ourselves! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, to stay updated! If you live in Berlin, and you’ve got some ideas where we should head for dinner or which christmas market is the best, please comment! I am happy for every suggestion!

Since I am super busy all the time, especially before christmas, I will keep today’s post short. About a month ago, I got myself these H&M Studio Collection mules that are perfect for the colder season. I paired them with a simple black skirt and this cute lace top from Asos. Add a red lippy and a special clutch bag, and this look is perfect for the upcoming holiday season, if you want to keep it simple and all black! I’d probably wear it for a christmas party .. if only I’d still be working at Stylight. Their christmas parties are beyond amazing! ;-) Have a great weekend guys! See you soon =) xx

LIFE IS A LESSON :: INTRODUCING WOLFSCHLUCKNER


Good morning everyone :-) I was a bit ill these past few days and spent some relaxing time with my mum in Berlin, but here's a new outfit post! Brand new, as we just shot it two days ago after visiting the 'war and wardrobes' exhibition - which I can totally recommend to all of you if you're interested in fashion, history and photography! Berlin is getting colder and colder and I can barely wear my 'fall uniform' anymore, which consists of a sweater, skirt, tights and boots. I stocked up and got myself a new pair of black overknees to keep my legs warm. But the most important thing in today's outfit is my red cape. If you follow me for a while, you all might have seen it more than once on LOC but this time is a little different. I have always dreamed of my very own coat collection, my very own label. I just wanted people to wear my creatons (and I still want that, oh my). So I decided to give it a try and give my creatons some space on the internet, as in, building up a website. I have been working on it for weeks now, and just wanted to share this with you, as I feel like it is interesting for you to see how I try to get this started, and not just show you the website when it's finished.

I never wanted to share my last name with you on the blog, probably because it's weird and uncommon. People pronounced it wrong, they made jokes about it and all these things, so I was kind of sick of telling others that my last name is Wolfschluckner. BUT, since I lived in Berlin, I met quite a few people who thought this was an amazing name and in fact, it stands for strength and creativity, and that is the reason I called my label-in-the-making WOLFSCHLUCKNER. Just like my last name. As simple as it is. With all the weird pronouncing and the not so funny jokes people make. I am currently working on coats and capes for the website which will hopefully go live sometime in January; I already have a model that I absolutely adore and I am about to meet my photographer for brainstorming! It's all super exciting, although I don't know if it will work out, but I love to work on this new project every single minute! I already set up a Facebookpage that I would be happy if you'd like and share, and an Instagram account.

It feels damn unreal to work on your own brand, label, whatsoever at the age of twentyone. I have always wanted to just show my creatons online and make people happy by wearing my coats and capes. It's not about fame or similar, but about my passion for creating outerwear and sewing in general. I am both happy and scared at the same time, as I could totally fail and ruin my dream of having an own label .. but it could also work out, so I just have to try and risk something. Honestly, I don't have anything to loose. There's this song called 'Suggestions' I discovered on PLL and listened to it over and over again, and it's got some pretty good lyrics saying  "At the end of the day lifes a lesson" and this is what keeps me going. We all have to learn so much, and life's a whole process of learning, dealing with failure and success, and we will grow with all these lessons.

 I will keep y'all updated, but please be gentle with me, as I am working really hard right now, and with uni and a part-time job, it is getting tough.

Wishing you all a great Tuesday! Lots of love, xx

GO-TO PIECE FOR WINTER :: FURRY SCARF

pictures by Sarah
Hello lovlies! Just a short post on this Friday morning, as my mum came over to Berlin to visit me =) I wanted to show you my go-to piece for winter, when it's really really cold outside: the furry scarf! I bought it last year from lovely Julia, Founder of Floralpunk. I am quite obsessed with everything (fake) fur-related and stocked up on my furry items in the past two years. My wardrobe consists of three fake fur coats, as well as two fake fur beanies/hats, my beloved furry clutch  and this furry scarf - and I am sure there's more to come! Just to be clear, I am not into real fur, so whenever I talk of fur, it's always fake fur that I mean. In my opinion, you can look as chic with a fake fur garment, than with one out of real fur. There is nothing do discuss about. If we can create a cloth that looks and feels just like the original, while it's not, there is no point for me to wear the real one. It's just not worth it. I just wanted to make this clear, as I own quite a few furry pieces and I would love to have even more! It makes your look both elegant and extravagant - and of course it's warm and cosy! Unfortunately, I don't see many people wearing fake fur in Berlin, as it stands for a chic, sophisticated and elegant look, and this is probably not what the typical Berlin city girl would like to achieve. Anyway, I have always been more into business chic than laid-back, so I am happy to bring some fake fur chic to this city! 

I hope you all had a great week so far! Mine was quite busy, been sewing and working for uni quite a lot and even had an interview with DandyDiary founder, David K.K. Roth. Been following his blog, which he runs with his friend Jakob Haupt, for quite a while and I am always excited to see whats next! Their actions are never foreseeable, that's for sure! I am now off to spend some time with my mumy who arrived yesterday evening. Unfortunately, I am a bit ill so we'll spend most of the time at home and just keep it casual & relaxing. Have a great weekend guys! xx

MOM JEANS

pictures by Linda
Hey peeps! Do you sometimes feel like time is rushing by so fast and you don't even notice it? I had that feeling in the past few days, and especially today, I keep asking myself, how come it's already Wednesday? And how come it's already November, as in, it is almost 2015?! When did all this happen? I am back in Berlin and although the flight took only an hour from Salzburg to Berlin Tegel, I feel kind of jet legged, crazy huh? But anyway, I am back on track and uni is quite busy, so please be gentle with me, if I don't post as much as I usually do in the course of the next few weeks. It seems like I have to develop a new routine since I am running errands every single day and it's quite exhausting at times ;-) Hope you all are fine!

Since I moved to Berlin, I got all crazy about mom jeans and browsed through every online store I know to find the perfect ones. Turns out I ended at Urban Outfitters, which teamed up with Rewardstyle who held an amazing Masterclass in Berlin last month, where I was invited to join. After talking about blogging and some interesting facts, drinking wine with the other gals and chatting we were allowed to try a few pieces from UA and although all of the girls fell in love with a special kind of cardigan, I knew I wanted to get myself a pair of light washed mom jeans. Some may think I am too small for it, or I do not have the right bum for it, but I love those jeans! They look quirky, cool and I totally remind myself on my mom, which is even cooler as she's such a styling inspiration for me. I ripped the jeans myself and paired them super simple with my white Nikes and a fake fur jacket from Forever21. Hope you like the pictures, lots of lovel! xx

RED ONE SHOULDER DRESS AND FURRY CLUTCH


Hello lovlies! I feel super motivated, super happy and full of energy after this amazingly calm and relaxed weekend I spent at my parents place in Austria! After living in Berlin for more than two and a half months, it was time to come home, see my parents, one of my sisters, my besties and my cat. I can't deny, I am a small town girl, and sometimes big cities make me feel like I am even smaller, and I am just a teeny tiny 5ft2, which means, I need some time off from the city and just spend a weekend somewhere calm, cosy and above all - quiet. Although I love Berlin to pieces, its energy and how it motivates me to work, create and shoot for the moon day by day, I felt like my body needed some rest and the delicious kind of food my parents cook whenever I come visit ;-) This weekend was meant to be about quality time, food and sleep. I am now ready to fly back to Berlin tomorrow morning and work even harder than before =)

Here's a new outfit for you, with this dress I got via Rosegal.com! I wanted to create a look with this seasons favorite bright color - named red! I hardly ever wear red, but when I do, I make sure to keep the whole outfit super simple. This time, I paired it with grey accessories and my fav. furry clutch bag I just got myself via Asos, unfortunately it's already sold out, I just had a look. But the lovely team of Rosegal provided you guys with a 8% discount on your next order with the code 'joeyCgil', so go ahead and shop, they've got some fancy dresses over there! Have a great day guys and best wishes from Austria! xx

LANCÔME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA : NEW FOUNDATION

with a little help from Sarah

FRI-YAY! Another beauty post for all you lovely tiny LOC readers! I am such a happy clam to team up with Douglas this time, and to show you their new mobile phone App with which you can find the perfect make up products coordinated to your skin tone. It's all really easy, you just need their color card with this special QR code on it, and then you have to download the app. The whole process of scanning one's skin is explained in the app and really easy. I would just suggest you to do it with a second person, as it is quite hard to hold the color card onto your face and then scan everything with the other hand. I asked my lovely roommate Tobi and he did a really good job in helping me, and even found it was a cool idea, haha =) Also, pay attention to the lighting in your room, it could manipulate the result.

After scanning everything, you will get your personalized color code and there will be several products shown from different brands that would suit your type of skin. I have always been really lucky concerning my skin type, means, I never really had problems with it, so I gave it a try and tried out a completely new brand and foundation. I picked a new foundation called 'Lancôme teint idole ultra'. The only problem was, that the color code was too dark, so the shop girl told me to go for the lightest version available, as I have such a light skin tone. I now have no. 010 beige porcelaine and I am completely obsessed with it. First of all, this foundation smells amazing and it feels so good to apply it on your skin. I was a bit scared at first, because using make up can cause a dry skin but I do not think this one will. My face feels relaxed, refreshing and it looks pretty ;-)

I hope this little review was helpful for you, I would definitely recommend you to try out this color code, as it is really funny and if you are ready to try something new, go for it! Besides, I think I finally have some sort of routine in my daily life now. It took quite a while, but I am slowly getting used to being at uni all day long and blogging besides. Just hope it stays like that =) A great weekend to all of you! xx

HAIR CARE ROUTINE


Hello everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend, enough time to relax and rest and that you are now ready for a new week! Let's start with something refreshing, like a little bit of beauty!
Since I just cut my hair again, and people always ask me about my hair care routine, I decided to write a post about it. If you follow tiny LOC blog for a while now, you might know that I had quite long hair until I decided to cut them in January. Then I decided to get back to the roots and get my bangs again, but quickly became bored of it, so I am trying to grow them out, which probably takes ages. Two weeks ago I decided to cut my whole hair again, this time it's definitely a change that can be seen. I've never had this short hair, but I absolutely love how versatile it is. I still laugh when I am trying to make a bun or special hairdo as it won't proper work out =) Here's a list of my favorite products that I am currently using:

THROWBACK PINK SUMMER 2014

pictures by Emma Grann Photography
Do you know that feeling, when certain moments feel like a dream? When I look at the pictures we shot this summer in Sweden, it feels like a dream that Ilived there for a few weeks, it's a little surreal. If you followed my little Swedish journey through summer, you might as well know that I have teamed up with lovely Emma, who is an amazing young photographer from Gothenburg. We shot these on my last day before I went to Oslo. She recently told me that she joined a photography exhibition in Sweden, which takes place in Kungsbacka (20-31 October), Varberg (3-14 November) and Halmstad! It's at a school called 'Medborgarskolan' and open on the weekdays - you also don't have to pay any entrance fee! Just wanted to share this with my Swedish readers, I hope you're still interested in tiny LOC blog even though I'm not 'living' there anymore, because I think Emma's work is beyond amazing and I would love to come myself, but it is too far away and I've got a pretty tight schedule here in Berlin! If anyone of you is there, pleeease instagram and tell me about it, and don't forget to use the hashtag #emmagrannfotografi =)

Besides that I'd love to be back in Sweden right now, I am enjoying fall season to its fullest! I have just finished another coat and I am super duper excited to wear it and take pictures for you! I hope you are still interested in my designs, it's all taking ages right now as I am working on so many things at once, but I will make sure to update you every once in a while! I am now off to a uni event, wishing you a happy Thursday, thanks for reading! xx

SNAKE PRINTED SHORTS AND TURTLENECK

pictures by Linda
My instagram feed is all over pictures of people who hate monday(s), quotes, which explain why monday(s) suck, but I personally love Mondays. Not just because I've got Monday off (every single week, eeek), but because I've always loved them, as they stand for a new beginning. There's a whole week, there are seven full days, where you can discover new things, start something new, try something new, just do something you've never done before and make your life even more fun! I've got a full to do list for this week and I can't wait to start! First I'll finish my coat that I am dying to show you, as it's so elegant and sophisticated, and then do some workout, work on the blog, work for uni, the usual ;-) What are your plans for the week? It's really weird, but I told my mum yesterday, that I am really settling down, as in, I love what I do and most of the time, I'm not saying everytime, but most of the time I don't need to motivate myself to do something, because it's all fun and, I pretty much love my job and the studies I chose. Finally=) I hope you all had an amazing weekend, just like me, and you're more than happy that Monday arrived, to get yet another fresh start and create something exciting!

I've been wearing black a lot lately, but wanted to change this by creating a black, white and green look with some of my new goodies. This vest was on Sale at Mango and I've always wanted one of these! It's my go-to piece this fall, it's so chic but can be styled pretty edgy as well! Of course there's my fav. jumper of all time, the turtleneck in white, which I couldn't imagine living without, as it's the most comfortable garment you can wear! It's funny how I am super interested in clothing history thanks to uni, cause people have been wearing turtlenecks since the 15th century and there was even a time where they used it in violation of the shirt and tie. Fashion history fun fact no. 1! 
Paired with green snake printed shorts and a big bag I am ready for another day at work/uni, wishing you a happy Monday! xx

FLAT OUT FABULOUS

portraits by Linda

A beauty post ... again? I've stocked up my lipsticks and had to show you this gorgeous little one from MAC asap. As I am really intro bright lipsticks in fall and winter time, I got myself 'flat out fabulous' already a few weeks ago. This color is simply magical! It's really bright and pink-ish, and that's exactly what I needed! Recently, I love to wear black all the time, but  it would be boring without a pop of color added to my outfits by a nice lipstick! I hope it doesn't get boring for you guys, my lipstick obsession has gotten quite obvious if you follow me for a while, but I am always trying to take different pictures for my beauty posts! This time I played with this amazingly colorful jumper I got from H&M and some other beauty products such as the perfect nailpolish for fall from Essie and a new amazing mascara from Maybelline! While editing the pictures I thought they'd look a bit 80s and have this oldschool touch, and I absolutely love it! They are really different to my usual beauty shots, but I'm cool with that =) hope you like them as well! 

I am currently all over uni as it's a super busy week and I barely have time to sleep, work on the blog or have free time, but as I told you, I had time to cut my hair! Whoop! It's like the last time I cut my hair, I get all inspired by this new length! Already thinking about outfits that make my hair even more outstanding, haha! It's still a bit weird cause I've never had such short hair, but I love it, both curly and straight! You'll see even better pictures in the following posts! Besides that, I am planning to have a calm and creative weekend, working on LOC, sewing and stuffing myself silly at Suicide Sue! Oh, I'll also be at the Backroom Sale at Wood Wood Berlin, if anyone wants to join? Happy Thursday! xx

THE KARL DAILY

pictures by Linda
Apparently, fall hit town and brought cold temperatures - yay! I really don't mind the weather right now, as I love fall season! Everything's pretty and you can dress up, layer, wear bright colors to brighten up the day, everything's just perfect! Best thing about fall this year, are definitely capes - all kinds of! I've always loved them as you look so chic and feel so cosy while wearing them! This camel colored cape is one of my favorites as it goes with everything and looks really sophisticated! This year camel, brown and earthy tones are all the rage, so I think I'm good to go with this garment! Already thinking about getting a mohair camel jumper, have you already stocked up your wardrobe with this years fall color?  

I have been super busy these past few days; I did loads of stuff, worked so hard and almost non stop, and rewarded myself with a new haircut! Have you seen my short hair yet? I already posted it on Instagram, but I'll make a special hair care post within the next few weeks - stay tuned! Besides working and studying, and working and studying, I had enough time to get my hands on the Karl Daily which you can get in all the Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld stores in the city! I've always been quite into Karl and all his designs, as well as I am one of the girls that simply think he's a genious, but I was a bit skeptical about his new project - a newspaper. I read it on the bus on my way to work and although the layout  could be a bit more inspiring, the content is really cool. From a day in the life of king karl to the mystery of him wearing sunnies all day long, it's all written pretty charming and ironic. I would definitely recommend it, especially cause it's for free ;-) Have a great day guys! xx

BEHIND THE WHEELS

pictures by Linda
and lately, I'm beginning to find, that I should be the one behind the wheels        (Incubus)

Today's a holiday in Germany, that's why my day started with sleeping a little longer, having delicous breakfast and then going for a run in the morning sun! Perfect as I've got a busy weekend ahead! I will start working on LOCDesigns today, then head off to my 'other workplace' and tomorrow there'll be another amazing shooting day with lovely Frank from spectre photo! I sooo can't wait to see the results from Wednesday and of course prepare outfits for tomorrow!  I already showed you a little preview on Instagram! One of my friends recently said to me that it's crazy what's going on in my life right now, and although this made me blush, I can't get over the fact that I always want more. No material needs, but sometimes I feel like I haven't done anything at the age of twenty-one. And when this thought comes up, I like to have a holiday, just like today, and remind myself on what I want to achieve and that I have to work hard, and remind myself, again, 'that I should be the one behind the wheels'. There's no one who's going to do all these things for me, to achieve my dreams and goals for me. I have to do it on my own, and it's actually a lot of fun! To break it down for you, I should not compare myself to others, especially not if they are my age and seem to have achieved so much more than me. Nope. I am enough, and I have enough. I'm gonna do it my way, which might take a little longer, but it will be fine in the end. end of story.

After my shoot with Frank on Wednesday I was absolutely knackered and just crawled into my bed and slept for as long as I could, which wasn't that long unfortunately, as I had uni Thursday morning 8am. But oh well, I even managed this and then headed over to Friedrichshain with my girl Linda to shoot this look for you! THIS jacket is my everything, really! I absolutely love how warm it is and how it makes me and my clothes look cool and edgy, and a little less girly =) Paired it with a little black dress, wore a bun and was ready to shoot in this old house full of graffiti. I know, we've all seen this before ..  but I love a little graffiti in my pictures and Berlin has lots to offer! Have a great weekend guys, see you Monday, but don't forget to follow me on my social media to catch up what I'm doing! xx

VEILED BEANIE

pictures by Liesa
CAN I TAKE YOU HIGHER? I can't even sit still on my chair right now, as I am so excited and motivated! Nothing reeeeally important happened, it's just that I had a weird day at uni yesterday, and I wasn't really in the mood to work, blog, whatever, until I talked to my mum while working on my latest to do list aka business plan. Whenever there was enough time in between uni and work I did some sketching and thought about this big word called 'change' a lot these past few days and weeks, and I think I am ready to take a massive step into a certain direction. So I am just gonna risk everything, change a few things in my life, probably even change myself a little bit, and tell you guys, that I am working on my very first collection. Eeeek! I know, it might not sound as interesting and funny for you, as it does for me, but this is a big step for me. I I've been thinking about my own collection for ages now and was always scared, but I kinda feel like I am finally in the right place to do it. I won't say more, as it should still be a surprise for you guys, but please be gentle with me, as I am working so hard right now, tiny LOC blog takes the second place.

But still, second doesn't mean I'm not gonna blog for ages now, as I absolutely love blogging. It's like I am addicted, whenever I don't blog for about three days, I feel weird. So here's a new outfit post with my selfmade burgundy colored cape that I still adore, my docs and my latest investment: a veiled beanie! I got it via Asos, as I desperately wanted one after seeing them on the runway of Jil Sander. I lost my heart for all kinds of headgears, and this veiled beanie got me higher! I hope you're all doing fine, tell me what you think about the veiled beanie in the comment section! :) Happy Humpday! xx

PASTEL HAIR


FUNNY FACE Hello lovlies! As you've probably seen on my Instagram, I did a little experiment with my hair yesterday as in turning the ends of it pink by using hair chalk. One of my friends got herself a whole pastel box with these chalks and was kind enough to lend me one =) I wasn't really afraid or anything, as I knew that it would fade away after washing my hair once, and of course because I did this with Anni a while ago. Her hair looked amazing with pink ends, and I definitely wanted to go for pastel pink as well! I felt quite hipster and reminded myself on Avril Lavigne but really loved my hair as they looked like cotton candy and made the whole look I wore something special. Fall definitely hit town and I am more than happy about this matter of fact! I love how outfit pictures turn out with a nice fall-ish background and lots of yellow / brown leaves. Also I am so ready to wear capes and scarves and all those lovely knitted accessories from now on! Game on!

Besides, this is the first look I shot together with my flatmate and the pictures turned out AMAZING. What do you guys think? It's always funny to shoot with new friends and I am crazy in love with the pictures and the surrounding. You can definitely stay tuned for even more looks shot by him! 
I hope you all had a great weekend; mine was beyond relaxing and because I don't have any uni today I will keep it casual and meet up with the girls for brunch in the next hour! Lots of love, xx

SUNNY FALL

pictures by Linda
Good good morning guys! It is finally the weekend! This has been a quite long but interesting week at uni, but still I couldn't wait for today as I'm going to start with my new coat! I already did some pattern construction and now will finalize everything and then start sewing - can't wait! Since the weather got less summery I am constantly thinking about coats, coats, coats and already have a little moodboard in my room with inspiration! Luckily the weather today, isn't that nice as well, so there's no need to go outside, which I totally approve, so I can be more productive! What are your plans for the weekend?

As you can see on my pictures, fall is coming closer and I am super excited about this! The last few days were almost painful as it was so warm and I am in such a fall mood, which means wearing black is just my thing, but not the smartest color to go when it has 25 degrees. Anyways, there were a few days where I could even go for tights again and this means a lot to me! I wore my lovely midi skirt together with a leopard printed tee and a black blazer out of neoprene I got myself while I was in Sweden. This outfit is super classy and somehow it reminded me of the Olsen Twins - fangirling mode on! Recently I love to wear oversized clothes a lot! Pairing boyfriend jeans with oversized blouses, wide midi skirts with oversized t shirts and an oversized blazer on top of it? You name it! It's not that I want to cover up in a huge piece of cloth (although I like the thought of it .. ;-) I just think there are no rules in Fashion, so I don't believe in this rule that prevents you from wearing both oversized items as a top and bottom! I hope you like today's look! Wishing you all a great great weekend! xx

LAYERING


One thing I love about fall is layering. I am one of those girls that's always freezing, even in summer time. Last week I was out and about exploring Berlin a bit with my girl from Austria, and the weather wasn't that nice, so I decided to go for a sporty chic look with my new white Nike Ultra Air Force that I am craaaazy about. I've always wanted these, as they look so cool & sporty and go with everything. I got them here and it was the last pair in my size - lucky me! To brighten up this grey day I chose to wear my baby blue Lackofcolordesigns coat, but as it's out of such light material, I had to help myself and wear a three colored knitted vest underneath. But still, it was too cold, so I covered everything with this cosy beige scarf from Zara. Layering from it's finest! I love how long and wide the scarf is. In the second picture I look tiny, but I love to wear something that is all over me and covers almost all parts of my body ;-)

As I told you, I've been struggling a bit with time management and still don't know how often there'll be time for tiny LOC blog, but since fall is coming closer, I am getting more and more motivated to blog as much as possible. I am already pairing boots, tights, dresses, jackets, coats in my head and can't wait for the weather to be more fall-ish! I've also watched a few of my fav. designers fashion shows via live stream and really think I should sew something in the near future! So many plans, so little time. That's it for today, I hope you had a great weekend, thanks for reading! xx

VAMP

portraits shot by Linda
Hello lovlies! Already told you last weekend that I shot a special post for LOC, and here it is =) I bought myself this amazing red lipstick by YSL in summer and absolutely love it. It's my second YSL and I think they are amazing. The lipsticks are quite soft and at first I had to get used to it but it makes applying the color so easy and it looks just chic. I knew that I wanted to create a different look for this new lippy and asked my girl Linda helping me to create this vamp look, which you can see on the pictures =) If you follow LOC for a while now, you might know that I'm not really into working on my make up skills, as I always look the same - always with mascara and eyeliner, but not just because I'm too lazy, because I still love it, even after almost two years! Hehe =) Anyways, Linda did these fancy smoky eyes and I think it looks perfect with the lipstick and the whole scenery of the pictures - let me know what you think in the comment section!

It's already Saturday and I've been living in Berlin for three weeks - eek! I had great days with my friend who came visiting me, we did some shopping, light sightseeing and had food, food, food! I am now off to work, wishing you all a great weekend! xx

BOUCLE DRESS AND MULES

pictures by Linda

I didn't think I would wear a dress again this season, as I really thought warm degrees and light dresses would be over and I already welcomed fall with open arms but turns out I was wrong, as usual. Last Sunday the weather was super warm and I was desperately looking for something to wear for meeting with friends from uni at the Voo store as there was this designer flea market. I decided to go for this boucle dress I bought at Mango's a while ago but never really knew how to pair it. It's so chic and cute but I must admit, it has a weird cut. You might think it's super comfy as it's just straight cut, but together with those big pockets, the little neckline and the puffed sleeves make me look like I don't have any curves, as well as it makes me look really well-behaved. Although this is not the problem, as I am well-behaved ;-) and I sometimes like to wear plain clothes. Anyway, to help this dress look a bit cooler and fresh, I paired it with my black mules and burgundy colored Gaudí bag in an echo of the upcoming fall season. I must admit that I am still not 100% sure about this dress, but I liked how the pictures turned out and maybe I will wear it again next season and pair it with sneakers or whatsoever.

I hope you all had a great week so far, I am currently struggling a bit with time management, as I'm either at uni, or out and about with friends. Yesterday one of my besties from Austria came over to visit me, so we're gonna do bits of sightseeing and just talk and eat - eek! But this is why my blogposts became a bit irregular, I'll work on it - no worries! Hope you like today's pictures - there'll be a special blogpost this week, can't wait to share it with you! Happy Humpday! xx

GAUDÍ SNEAKERS, GREY & BLUE

pictures by Linda
I was dressed all business-y in the city centre last week with my friend Linda for some serious girl talk and pictures =) She's gonna start her own blog within the next few weeks, so make sure to visit her at thequestcollective! Whenever we talk about blogging and that she's starting now, it's weird for me that I am already blogging on tiny LOC blog for more than two years! I feel so old ;-) It's such a long time for what was at first only a hobby and now is a little part-time job that I love to pieces! I had such a productive and fun day today and I can't wait to have even more of these kinda days! After an amazing breakfast on my balcony, just because the weather was truly a blessing (about 28 degrees, heeeeello again summer!) I went to the designer flea market at the voo store with some friends from uni and then took amazing pictures that I can't wait to share with you! Super excited and motivated right now to work work work on LOC!

Concerning today's outfit - I got these pretty cool and comfy pants in Sweden at Lindex. They are absolutely amazing, as they go perfectly with sneakers, just like my new Gaudí ones, or heels for a business meeting. I actually can't wait to wear them again right now =) My new Gaudí sneakers were such a bargain buy back in Austria at my fav. Pop Up Store! I can't believe how many sneakers I own already, I pretty much stocked up in the past few months! All in all, the whole look is super comfortable, sporty and just casual cool - probably the best choice when living in Berlin and running errands every day! I hope you had a great weekend, wishing you happy Sunday evening! xx

ROOM TOUR 3.0


Berlin! As I've proudly announced on my social media, I took the pictures for my room tour last week as I still had holidays and lots of time. I've been living in Berlin for almost two weeks now and it felt like home from the first day on. The reason could be my amazing room in this amazing flat, in this city that offers just everything, or my lovely flatmates ;-) . I guess it's all together! I wanted my room to be super cosy but it should also have a part where I can concentrate and work for tiny LOC blog, sew and work for uni of course. I don't really use Pinterest as I am too lazy, but if you follow some interior designers on Instagram, you're definitely prepared when it comes to furnish a room. Most of my furniture is from either my parents or sisters; especially my pink little wardrobe is a super old one from my parents when they were my age. 

Honestly, it's a little weird to do a room tour 3.0, as that means, I've been moving three times within my blogging career which lasts about 2.5 years now. Crazy, but I think I'll never get tired of moving and discovering new cities, as long as I've got a place/room of my own where I can come back and be all by myself =) I'm all touchy again today, haha! 

I hope youre all doing fine and you're enjoying the last bits of sunshine in September! The weather is pretty good in Berlin, what are your plans for the weekend? xx

SWEETEST GOODBYE


Happy September guys! Isn't it weird that 'summer' is over and in four months it's already christmas? I kinda thought about that yesterday on my first day of uni - time passes by so quickly, it's a little overwhelming I'd say. In Austria / Germany there was not much of a summer, while in Sweden I had 30 degrees almost every single day; but still, I think this summer was different to all the others, and now that we've all said our goodbyes to all these precious summer memories, we can start again, all inspired and motivated for this years fall season. I remember back in March when me and my girl Linda did the qualifying test at uni and now we started. I had an incredible first day, felt like back at school with all those cool kiddos and as I told you in my previous post - I am pretty much inspired and ready to work harder than ever because of all those amazing people I got to know in the past 24 hours. Sometimes you gotta love life =) 

Today's outfit shows you my beloved Karl Lagerfeld clutch that I bought back in Austria in a Designer Outlet. The color is just magical and the little hole details make it super special and outstanding. At first, I wasn't sure of how to pair it, but I am a sucker for black and blue so I went for this color combo, where surprisingly the bag is still a real eyecatcher. We shot these pictures in August, so the weather was still good enough for wearing culottes and mules which I already miss in fall season. I didn't wear them enough this summer, especially in Sweden, as I was always rushing by bike from one place to another, so there was no occassion to wear mules and culottes. I'll be sure to give these pants another try for fall -  thinking about wearing them with some amazing boots and a biker jacket or cape! Stay tuned! Hope you had a great start into this week! xx

NEW IS ALWAYS BETTER


NOT. You might have seen this amazingly beautiful oldschool leather jacket on my Instagram already. In this case, new isn't always better (referring to HIMYM of course!) cause it's a quite old biker jacket from my mum and she gave it to me about a month ago cause I desperately wanted an oldschool-bomber-biker-kinda-jacket ;-) The shoulders are quite bulky, in fact, the whole jacket is super bomber but the different shades of brown and the totally used look make it such a special piece. Because of that, I decided to pair it all simple with a long black dress, loafers and my RayBan sunnies. I love a good vintage item, and this jacket might become my new fall favorite as fashion this season is all about brown! I'm not much into brown but lately my heart skips a beat whenever I see something brown, mocca, or beige colored =) What do you think?

Talking about new is always better - for me, uni starts tomorrow and I am as excited as I think I was when I was a little dwarf starting school more than ten years ago. Unfortunately, I didn't get a colourfully decorated cardboardcone filled with sweets and small gifts, that kids usually get on their veryfirst day of school, but I'm still happy and motivated to start from scratch again. It's funny how I am still excited about lots of things, such as breakfast this morning, as Sundays are always my 'fancy breakfast' kinda days where I skip the porridge and get myself croissants and stuff. I've been living in Berlin for a week now, and I've been excited about everything. We went out playing table football this week and I haven't done this in years so I was all excited, as well as going climbing with my flatmates made me happy like a little clam! To be all honest, I wasn't really in the mood to blog this week (although I did it), as I just wanted to settle down and not think about work/blogging. It worked out pretty good, I had such a busy but fun week and now that uni starts tomorrow (and I'll be surrounded by people working in Fashion), I am preeeetty sure, I'll be constantly thinking about the blog, get inspired and work work work! 

I hope you all had a great week / weekend, thank you guys for always motivating me and see you soon on tiny LOC blog =)

NEW YORK


With my girl Anni living in New York and me checking her Instagram on a daily basis, I am constantly dreaming about going there in the near future. Unfortunately, I had no time to visit her this summer, but thought about a New York-ish outfit that I would have worn. I ordered this cool NY skirt at Asos a while ago and paired it with my recent favorites - my little bag from Forever21 and the white sneakers from Zara. These accessories go with everything, and to add a little twist to the whole outfit, I decided to go with my denim blouse, which is also perfect for a day in town where it's not super warm. 

It's already day five in Berlin and I am such a happy clam and always kinda busy exploring the city with my flatmates. I still had no time to shoot a room tour and a new outfit straight from Berlin but I'll make sure to do this asap! I am already on the go, not much time to blog this week but I'll be back on track on Monday when uni starts and I'm having a normal routine again! Happy Humpday! xx

NEXT STOP: BERLIN


'We always rearrange a dream, when it is not a success'
So I'm now based in Berlin, as you can see from my pretty instagram shots. I dunno why, but it's a big deal for me, and probably also for my friends as I got this lovely girly t shirt from Liebeskind Berlin from one of my besties Amy - which I  turned into a cool Berlin-ish outfit for you guys. We shot these images back in Austria, because there wouldn't have been any time to do it in Berlin. After a nine hour journey I arrived safe and sound with my parents and A LOT of luggage in the city, but now, 24 hours later, my room is finished - who would have thought? I'm so gonna do a room tour as soon as possible, as I love everything about my new home. There are still some bits missing, but I've got pretty much everything I need to survive ;-) I should probably don't think too much about living here for now, as it's a bit scary, and so I thought talking about dreams would be right. 

First of all, I never thought about living in Germany until I didn't get in Journalism Uni in Austria. That was in my last year of school, where everything was pretty stressful. I started studying Publicism in Vienna but soon found out that this was way too boring for me. I wasn't really happy with my studies, wanted more and applied again for this special Journalism Uni, but failed. Came home, pretty knackered and had big doubts about my choice of work and basically my whole future. I kind of thought the whole universe would tell me I should stop acting like a fool and find my 'real' passion, as writing might not be my thing. Oh well, I really tried to find something else until I realized, fashion is my passion. It doesn't have to be just writing about it, but creating it, being with it and working with other people in fashion. I gave it a last try and googled all kinds of Unis that offer studies in Fashion and found a lot: from fashion journalism or fashion, luxury & retail management to cloth design. If you follow me for a while know, you might know that I got into Uni in Berlin for Fashion Journalism, and I'm actually starting in one week already! I always knew that my passion is fashion, but I think I started a little wrong and now I'm hopefully on the right track, by just rearranging my dream, in terms of residence and uni. My life has always been in Austria, until I realized that there's so much more for me to explore. After being in Munich for nine months, I wanted to go further (as in further up north ;-) , so here I am, next stop: Berlin. I am all excited and scared of what the future will bring, but I guess I'm all in and just have to wait and see what happens. One thing I learned in the past years is to not give up and risk something!

A quite touchy sunday post, but suddenly it overcame me! Have a great day! xx
