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

THE GIRL WITH THE WHITE HAT


A quite chic and feminine look for today's post! Shot these pictures together with my mum about two weeks ago and wanted to showcast you this white hat I bought in a vintage store while living in Vienna. I have never ever worn it as I found it hard to combine, until my mum came with this furry vest and my heart immediately skipped a beat. I kept the whole look really simple, feminine and with a touch of winter-feeling. I actually think this outfit would look a lot better if there would be snow around, but somehow we never get to have a winter wonderland at christmas time.

I hope you all had a great week guys - I am quite excited, as I'll be heading to Vienna tomorrow morning - eek! Going to see my whole family and my besties and can't wait to catch up! Make sure to follow my journey on Instagram =) Happy Friday! 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

PRETTY LIGHTS

pictures taken by Sarah

Happy Happy Monday babes! I can't describe how happy I am while I am writing this. It's Monday and I'm having this day off - eek! Since I started working besides uni, I really appreciate every single minute where I am neither working, at uni, or out and about shooting for LOC. I love my studies, I love my blog and brand-in-the-making, and my job as well, but I love to have some time just for myself listening to music and sew. So that's what I'll do today after finishing this blogpost. A couple of weeks ago, me and my girl Sarah shooted this look near my place in Charlottenburg, and the lighting was beyond amazing! My hair looks golden and the whole outfit goes perfect with the yellow leaves that lie on the street. Awww .. I love love love fall season! Unfortunately, those sunny days are really rare, and all thats left is a grey and super cold Berlin. 

In today's outfit, I am again combining some of my fav. pieces for fall/winter. Scarf and beanie are both from Zara, were a real bargain and are super comfy. For me, a good scarf needs to be thick, soft and long! Most of the time I wear my scarves just like I do in todays pictures, as I love how chic and cool a look can be if the ends of it just dangle and are not wrapped around one's neck. That's it for today. Lots of love and have a great week! xx

FALL COLORS : GREEN VINTAGE CAPE


Heyo everyone!! Sorry for skipping the Wednesday post - I had absolutely no time to write and talk about my latest outfits, although I have quite a few to share with you! Here's number one, from my stay in Austria at my parents place. The weather was incredibly warm, super sunny and just magical. I posted  this amazing picture on Instagram of the mountains and the lake, aww .. I wish it was summer so that I could enjoy some frozen yogurt and watch the sailing boats go by. Whenever I visit my parents, I don't take too much clothes with me, as I know my mum has some great treasures hidden in her wardrobe. I found this green vintage cape already a year ago, but never took pictures with it, so it came in handy last weekend. I wore a simple black pullover-skirt-combination underneath, because this cape obviously stands for itself. It's quite long, I must admit that my mum is much taller than me, but I love it so much! It is suuuuper comfy, warm and it made me feel effortlessly chic. I guess that's what a forester's wife would wear :-P just joking. These green velvet boots belong to my mum as well and it feels like heaven walking in them! I hope you like the pictures, I absolutely adore the colors in the back, it was such a pretty and perfect fall day!

Hopefully you all had a fabulous week! I cannot believe that it is already Friday and the middle of November. It feels like it was my birthday just yesterday, haha =) After finishing this blogpost (note: it's Thursday evening while I am writing this), I will just relax and watch PLL while eating mandarins and cookies. The perfect me-time after a long day at uni and work. I wanted to talk to you about this topic for ages, as I read about 'me-time' in "I am that girl" .. the book I always quote and can totally understand if you get annoyed about ;-) It is just that I can always relate to everything Alexis Jones talks about. One of the chapters is about 'me-time' which I think is one of the most important lessons we all have to learn. I have always loved being alone but felt bad if I told someone or used it as a reason to not showing up at a party or dinner invitation. I can hardly say no, but within the years I learned that it is super important to say no at times and spend time alone without feeling guilty. Alexis Jones described it with the words:
'You have every right in the world to say no and you'll be a better woman because of it.' 
I know it might sound cheesy, but I am trying to feel less guilty whenever I turn someone down and instead spend time by myself. I started dedicating some time every day to do exactly what I want, alone. And guess what? It.feels.great! Putting yourself first takes a lot of courage but it is important to learn about yourself and your needs.

Okay .. I had a lot of thoughts this time .. tell me what you think about my look and thoughts in the comment section! Happy Friday! Lots of love! xx

BEIGE / NUDE: TONE IN TONE

pictures by Sarah

Almost forgot to share this look with you which we took last month, when the weather was amazing and sunny! You could even go outside bare legged, oh how I miss that time of the year! I guess you all have seen me wearing my new coat over and over again on my social media channels! It is so elegant and versatile. You can wear it all casual, like I did in these pictures, but also with heels and a blouse (coming soon) ;-) I wanted to create a tone in tone look and  and combined my nude leather skirt together with this oversized jumper with purple details. I love how consistent the whole outfit is just because of the beige / nude colors I've chosen to mix. This jumper was a real bargain some time in spring this year, and I love the purple splashes of color! I will make sure to shoot a few other looks with my coat so you can see it styled in different versions! 

Unfortunately there's not much to say today, as my weekend consisted of work, work and again work. Besides working in a store twice a week, I've started sewing another cape for one of my friends and can't wait to share the result with you when it's finished. I hope you all had a great weekend, thanks for reading & lots of love! xx

FROM AUSTRIA WITH LOVE: FRINGE CAPE AND CAMEL PANTS


Good morning everyone! Here's another look I shot back home in Austria, where it was freeeezing! I still cannot believe how cold it got in the past few weeks and that it's already November, but we talked about this already! This look is all about the current fall trends, camel colored skinny pants and a big wide fringe cape with this super cosy hood! I loved to wear camel when I was still in high school, as I thought it looked super chic with a white blouse and white blazer. In wintertime I am more into black than white, that is why I combined my camel pants with this amazing cape that belongs to my mum, but she's fine with sharing =) It's huge, which makes it perfect for winter time, as you can wear thousands of layers underneath. All kinds of capes are definitely a must have for this season, and I am about to sew another one for one of my girls from Berlin! Can't wait to start and show you the result asap! Stay tuned!

Besides that uni is getting more and more busy, I now have a job as well, which might make blogging a bit difficult, but I will try to work it out and keep you all updated =) You all might know that I am craaazy about all kinds of outerwear, coats, capes, you name it and I could talk about it for hours. I've been obsessed with the new Burberry video, been listening and watching it over and over again and wanted to share it with you as well! To be all honest, I felt a bit homesick when I came back to Berlin on Tuesday. My weekend was beyond amazing and super relaxed, while life in Berlin is always quite hectic and all about work. But don't get me wrong, I love to be here, I was just a bit sad to leave Austria this early. But when I discovered this video, I felt happy, warm ready again to work work work and create a vision just like Burberry does all the time. The video is both super inspiring and moving, as well as romantic, and oh my good, look at those amazing dresses in the last part! Sometimes I wish I lived in a fairytale, where I could wear these all day long. But anyway, I have always loved Burberry's work. Their classic trenchcoat is on my wishlist for years now, and this video is just amazing and inspiring in all kinds of life. I will leave you now with the request to watch it at least once, and I am off to uni - see you Monday! xxx


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

ONE JUMPSUIT, THREE WAYS 3.0

pictures by Sarah
FRI-YAY! I had such a busy week, that is why I had absolutely no time to use social media properly and keep you updated, but I think it's okay to skip posting all day long from time to time. As it's Friday today, I am showing you the third and last look with my jumpsuit, worn as a top, paired with a black midi skirt, heels and my beloved Michael Kors bag. It's a quite business-y look, and although I love heels, I am more of a high heeled boots girl, just because they are much more comfortable. To wear a jumpsuit as a top in wintertime is also quite tricky cause it keeps you warm underneath as well ;-) I cannot really say which look I liked most, but I am strongly tending towards the first one, as it is super casual and you can see the whole jumpsuit .. but what do you think about today's option? Ain't it funny how versatile such a jumpsuit/one piece can be worn?

As you might have seen on my Instagram this morning, I am flying home tonight! Eeeek! Haven't seen my sisters, besties from home and parents in what it feels like ages (it's been more than two months though ;-) so I am pretty much excited to see all of them! The reasons why I was crazy busy in the past few days is uni, which became more and more demanding and me working on a new layout for tiny LOC blog and my own brand/label that is taking form as well. SO excited, every day has been really busy and exhausting but I love it! I'll keep you updated about my weekend at home, wishing you all an amazing Friday and above all, an amazing weekend! Lots of love, xx

ONE JUMPSUIT, THREE WAYS 2.0

pictures by Sarah
Good morning everybody! Here's my second look featuring this jumpsuit I got myself at H&M a while ago! This time, I wanted the focus to be on the print and my love for headgear, of course! I decided to pair the jumpsuit with my black furry beanie that is perfect for this cold weather and some high heeled boots with a pop of beige! It is such a simple look, but since the print of the jumpsuit is quite outstanding, I thought it would look cool, don't you think? It's easy to wear a jumpsuit without adding anything, and it could have been boring, but not if you wear one that has a magical, 60s kind of print. That beanie is my personal favorite for wintertime, as it is super fluffy and I love everything furry! Look number three will be up Friday, can't wait to hear your opinions on this fun series of pictures!

I had no time yet to tell you, that I am going home this weekend - eeeek! I am suuper excited to see my parents, one of my sisters and some of my besties, as it feels like I was at home ages ago! I will keep you all updated, so make sure to follow me on Instagram! xx

ONE JUMPSUIT, THREE WAYS 1.0

A new series on LACKOFCOLOR - yay! I've always wanted to do a '(please insert garment here) worn in three ways' - and when I saw this jumpsuit at H&M I knew it would be the perfect one piece to show in three different ways. So this week will be only about this gorgeous jumpsuit and I will show you three different ways of how to wear it. I would recommend you to get this jumpsuit if you love one pieces as much as I do, also this one adds a little 60s twist to your wardrobe, don't you think? For the first look I wore my jumpsuit with an oversized blazer, beanie and loafers. I must admit, these items are my all time favorites. You all know me for a while now, so you might as well know how much I love beanies .. and this black one is always with me! The blazer is not a simple tailored blazer, but more a straight, slightly oversized one with no pockets, no collar and out of neoprene material! It usually goes with everything, that is why I wanted to try if it fits to my jumpsuit as well - yep - nailed it, again! And to add a bit of vintage chic to my look, I wore my old vintage doctor's bag which I got myself in Vienna two years ago. I love its used look, compared to my Michael Kors, this one's an old lady and I love to take her for a walk every now and then! Also, if I do not want to wear heels or boots, I always grab my black Pennyloafers. There is something about these shoes that makes them so oldschool and nerdy but amazingly beautiful and versatile at the same time. My go-to piece in fall! 

Hope you guys had an amazing weekend - what did you do to keep yourself busy? I was working on Saturday and then Sunday is always a day to do some sports, uni stuff, read and watch movies. By the way, I got all convinced by my girl Anni to get Netflix, so now I am head over heels watching PLL, GG (again) and lots of movies I've always wanted to see. I just watched 'One Day' with Anne Hathaway yesterday morning and think it's brilliant. Must admit that I (almost) cried at the end and I am usually not THAT kind of girl, but if you are into tragiccomedies, go for it! Happy Monday! 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

HELLO MICKEY

pictures by Linda

Happy Monday babes! I know, I haven't been blogging for a while now, but I am back on track! The last few days were suuuper busy and stressful as I worked a lot besides uni and didn't get enough sleep so there was just no time to blog, sorry for that! This week is gonna be less busy and more relaxful & there'll be more blogposts, promise! I've been thinking a lot about the blog lately and I have some cool new ideas, so stay tuned for cooperations and more of LOCdesigns

I have a big crush on these mickey mouse shirts that are currently available at H&M and after seeing them for what it feels like a thousand times, I had to get my hands on this one! Ain't it funny? =) I love to add a little twist into my outfits by wearing something funny, girly, childish, whatever. Also, Mickey Mouse is probably THE epitome of comics, right? I paired the top with my black velvet skirt, a beanie and boots. To add a little color I wore a red lippy and clutch bag! Also, I am not sure about my hair right now .. the question is, to whether grow out the bangs or cut them .. and that's a taff one guys ;-) I know that it takes ages to grow them out but on the other hand it's really annoying to keep them when it's windy outside and they're not staying in the same place. I am having lots of fun with putting them aside but I know it's not going to stay like that forever, oh well. Hair problems. Have a great day guys! Lots of love! xx

CLUTCH ME, WOODY

pictures by Linda

Heyo friends! I wasn't sure about whether to blog today or not, as I am super busy (as you can see on my schedule on my Instagram) - lot's of people asked me where I got this cute wodden calender from, and well, I bought it back in Austria at 'Homefashion Pusch' in my hometown; but I'm gonna try and find a similar one, probably on Ebay and then tell you! Besides that I am super busy and about to head to work now, I shot these pictures with my girl Linda, who just started her blog - congrats! If you want to see me working my magic a.k.a taking pictures of her, head over to thequestcollective.com to read her first article! Last weekend, the weather was a bit warmer und sunnier, perfect weather to wear my new black cateye sunnies from Woody for the first time - lucky me, cause I won these on a giveaway on broken-cookies.com and they are s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g! If you follow me for a while, you might know I love wooden accessories. When I won these, I just thought 'omg this is amazing, and seriously, it's the third wooden accessory I own. It feels like all those companies kinda feel I love a little wooden bag or sunnies.' ;-) 

On that day, I wanted to wear something girly and colorful, as it's fall season, and I feel like the people are using this as an excuse to dress up all black, every. single. day. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love an all black look, but sometimes I feel like we should try and risk more in terms of fashion and above all, play with colors. I paired my babyblue LOCdesigns coat with my pink Zara boots and love these little color spots! What do you think? Happy Humpday guys, see you soon! 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
