MAGENTA


I was thrilled when I found this magenta colored dress with ruffles during the sales in summer. I actually wanted to wear it to a wedding but ended up not going because I was sick, and since then, it was hanging in my closet waiting for the perfect occasion -- which we all know never happens. Therefore I brought it with me to Austria to brighten up the grey weather and I wore it on Christmas Eve. I have never been a big fan of tights unless they have a pretty pattern or they are super warm and comfy, so I paired it with some black flares, a matching lipstick and little bag. The ruffles make it look girly and brash but in combination with the pants it is a decent outfit for days like these, where you want to look chic and festive instead of dressing up too much. 

I hope you're all ready for New Years Eve - wishing you all the best! xx

SEQUINS :: happy holidays


Back in Austria and not really in the mood for christmas, but lots of cookies, a little snow on the ground and christmas music are slowly getting me there. This sequined blazer helped as well to get in the mood for the upcoming festivities. While embellished dresses and skirts are always an option, they tend to make your holiday outfit look a bit too cheesy don't you think? Therefore, I went for a classic oversized blazer with a twist -- the sequins, and styled it like every other jacket, with slacks, cute flats and lots of layers underneath. The combination of turtleneck, blouse and blazer is everything to me right now and super warm and chic at the same time.

Anyways, merry christmas everyone! I hope you have a magical holiday season and see you again on New Years Eve on Lackofcolor! xx

LAYERS AND SMALL BAGS ::


This is probably one of my favorite outfits from this year. Deciding to play around with layers, I dared to wear leather overknees under leather culottes, which turned out to look really cool. The weather is quite mild right now, so I was able to throw on my old camel cape and spiced up the whole look with this cute little sequined vintage bag. I got it from my mum whilst complaining about not having any nice small bags, especially for going out -- which is what my lifestyle is all about (obviously).

In all seriousness, although I don't party a lot once I get an invitation I get frustrated by even thinking about what bag to carry. Thus, for a while now, I've been on the hunt for classic small purses with a modern/cute twist and I am currently obsessed with Chloé by Rebelle and my go-to brand for bags, Coccinelle by Rebelle as well. Because I like to get designer purses second hand, I always check Rebelle first, since they are one of the best places to purchase genuine second hand designer pieces in Germany. Coccinelle is totally underestimated and kind of my secret tip as their bags are of high quality and the prices are affordable. Chloé is more trend oriented and really popular right now though some bags still remain timeless and they are the perfect choice if you want to really invest into something. This red beauty and this baby blue snakeskin bag are currently on my wishlist .. (a girl can dream) xx

MOHAIR JUMPER


Blue is definitely one of my favorite colors, besides black. So why not combine them? There are no more rules in fashion and pairing black, blue and brown is definitely not a faux-pas but can actually turn out to be a sophisticated color combination. I bought this mohair jumper from Marina Hoermanseder in spring and secretly wished to fast forward to winter, as I wanted to wear it right away. It is absolutely gorgeous, super warm and works with everything -- whether you're dressing it down with jeans and sneakers or pairing it with a tulle skirt and high heels for christmas! 

By the way, am I the only one who feels like this weekend was over before it even started? I am not ready for work tomorrow and I have so much to do before going to Austria in two weeks. I really need a day between Sunday and Monday or at least one or two hours more per day.  xx

KNITWEAR AND PUFFER JACKETS


My blog is all about Wolfschluckner right now, as I have been working on a new collection for the past few months and I am finally done and ready to shoot it in the studio! So excited about this finally happening, as it's been a while since the last photoshoot. You, tiny Lackofcolor readers, are privileged to see the pieces first of course. 

In todays post you get to see another amazing knitwear piece made by my mom for Wolfschluckner only. She is the fastest and most skilled knitter I know and it is so much fun to create something with her. I usually just tell her what I've imagined myself wearing and then we pick the color, get balls of wool, obviously, because the jumpers are always oversized, super cosy and with a special pattern. She made the hat with the white bobble as well by the way, which takes her like an hour or so ;-) Anyways, the black pants are from last years collection and as comfortable as the jumper so they go perfectly together. I was inspired by my Karate uniform from when I was a teen, hence the tie belt which can be worn lose, in a knot or as a loop and gives them a special feature.

Big chunky knitwear is a necessity for a perfect winter wardrobe, such as down jackets, as they are currently experiencing a big revival. It is funny how puffer jackets used to be the norm, since I grew up in Austria where you basically wore your skiing jacket to school when it was cold. But once I moved to the city and started my blog, those jackets literally puffed (pun intended) away from the fashion scene. I still wore mine quite often but checked and long oversized boyfriend coats were all the rage back in 2013. Luckily, I still have my down jacket, coat and this grey cape from the Italian brand Bomboogie. It seems odd to me that people are into puffer jackets now that it's a trend, but they'll soon realise that it is one of the best pieces to own, especially the light ones work great layered under a coat and take little space in your suitcase when traveling.
Do you own a down jacket? xx

BLACK WOLFSCHLUCKNER COAT :: RANDOM THOUGHTS


New coat debut about two weeks ago when the bf and I went out to see 'fantastic beasts'. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you should definitely get tickets right away! Of course it's not like Harry Potter, although there are a lot of references, but it's funnier, the people dress amazing (I love the twenties) and of course Eddie Redmayne is probably the coolest guy ever since his amazing performances in 'The Theory of Everything' and 'The Danish Girl' ;-)

Fun Fact about the new coat: The only materials I ended up paying for were the thread and the name tags. Luckily, I got the fabric for free from Marina Hoermanseder while interning there and I had some lining left from previous coats I made. I finally had time to make a long black coat with a pointed lapel and classic patch pockets since I've always dreamed about it! It's my favorite coat right now, and even though my machine won't let me make button holes since the cloth is too thick, I have been wearing it non-stop since I like my coats and jackets to be loose. Who needs a proper fastening anyway?

BLUE IS MY FAVORITE COLOR


First of all, I know it is Black Friday and you all are hoping for great deals and promo codes, but instead I have a new outfit to share with you if you don't mind. My week was quite exhausting as I have been trying to get over a cold, so I had to cheer myself up and decided to post this look featuring my Wolfschluckner leather jacket and I'm eager to hear your feedback!

Actually, it's a piece from my new collection so showing you what I've been working on is quite exciting as the whole collection will be up on my website in January! I wanted to create a leather jacket for ages and luckily, I found this blue cow leather on a fabric market in June and started working on it right away. I combined some of my favorite colors (blue and white) and fabrics (leather and fake fur) and I am super happy with the outcome. Seeing as this is my first proper garment made out of leather, I think I did a pretty good job, considering I finished the jacket before I started interning at Marina Hoermanseder, who is well-known for her leather pieces. Nevertheless, I learned a lot about leather while working for her and can't wait to start new projects like this!

Until then, I am happy to show you the first streetstyle look where I paired the jacket with a ruffled blouse which makes the upper part more elegant. As a contrast, I decided on wearing ripped boyfriend jeans and some red accessories.

STATEMENT EARRINGS AND BELL SLEEVES


I must admit today's post is more trend oriented than usual. Whenever a new trend arises--which basically means on Instagram-- I remain pretty skeptical. However this season's big love for bell-sleeves has me jumping on the bandwagon, although I have always had an affinity for strong shoulders, puffed sleeves and ruffles as they add some éclat to a simple look. So I got my hands on this cosy grey jumper from Zara, but I still have my eye on a slimmer version where the sleeves are a total eye-catcher.

I wanted to create a sporty yet elegant look which is why I paired sneakers, a little black clutch and these statement earrings from H&M Studio. Maybe I should have marked this post differently, since it is the first time in my blogging career that I am wearing jewelry. I have this odd aversion to jewelry, especially if it's delicate and almost non existent, however I can totally understand why people enjoy statement pieces. I never thought I'd wear it but oh well, there's a first time for everything and I'll admit-- I didn't even feel super uncomfortable.
What do you think about today's look? Let me know in the comments and maybe I'll dare to wear more jewelry .. NOT 😉

BOUCLE JACKET :: WOLFSCHLUCKNER


Everybody who knows me, knows that I have a weakness for everything made of bouclé or tweed. I fell in love with this fabric when I was about twelve and despite my older sisters aversion, my mum got me every jacket I wanted (as long as it was in the budget of course). We always went shopping together and whenever I picked another boucle blazer they thought it looked absolutely dreadful, which made me want it even more. Now I still love them to pieces, but since this is a fashion blog and a variety of clothes is expected, I tend to only show you my latest additions.
So, here's a warm welcome to the family to this little green boucle jacket! 

The fabric was lying around in my apartment for over a year since I had no time and idea what to do with it. In the end it turned out to be a pretty basic jacket with patch pockets and a wide lapel but I love it! Green is usually not my cup of tea but in combination with yellow and creme it works well with my blonde hair. Furthermore, I could not make any button holes since the cloth is too thick for my sewing machine, so I usually style it with a leather belt which makes it look more modern and less grandma-ish. My love for cropped jeans is still strong and in combination with boots and a turtleneck it is probably the best fall/winter outfit when you're in a hurry and have no time to think about what to wear.

The boyfriend and I had another great day yesterday, as we went to see an exhibition about Marylin Monroe for her 90th anniversary at gallery Hiltawsky in Berlin Mitte. Afterwards we got coffee and strolled around a flea market in Charlottenburg until it was too cold to stay outside. If you're ever in Berlin, make sure to check out Schwarzes Café for either drinks or food, it's usually pretty crowded but soo good! xx

TASSEL BOOTS AND LAYERS


As I mentioned in previous posts, there are a few items I think everybody should own and black booties are one of them. Whether for work or on weekends, there's nothing I love more than a good pair of boots with a comfortable block heel as they go with every outfit.

BORDEAUX MOHAIR DREAM ::


Happy Friday!
We're already deep in autumn/winter season and what better way is there to celebrate the cold temperatures than with cosy knitwear? In the atelier where I am currently working it is awfully cold so I had to step up my winter attire game and get more warm clothes like this beautiful bordeaux cardigan from 2ND DAY via ABOUTYOU. It is quite big and therefore perfect for layering, which should be my second name, really. Since I am constantly freezing, both warm but also practical garments are my cup of tea and I am happily wearing layer over layer to avoid being cold for a second. This can look quite confusing, which is why I am sparing you the ootd's and tried to create a look where you can actually see what I am wearing and it's not a giant wool mess ;-)

WARDROBE STAPLES :: CASHMERE PULLOVER


I am so excited to share these pictures with you today! With my internship and Sarah studying again, we hardly find time for shooting outfit pictures, but if we do get together, we're the happiest and most creative gal pals on planet earth. She knows exactly what I want and I can trust her completely. For today's shoot, I was inspired by my all-time-inspiration Audrey Hepburn and wanted to wear a simple yet sophisticated and comfy look featuring some key pieces from my wardrobe.

AFTERWORK :: MOJITOS WITH BACARDI


Ever since I started working again, afterwork drinks have become more and more important. It's not that I need to drown my sorrows or complain about work (well maybe ;-) 
It's just nice to work with a new team, get to know them and hang out with them every once in a while, especially when interns tend to only stay in the city for a few months until moving back to where they came from. I still remember my time in Munich as the best time ever, hanging out with my UK girls having a drink and chatting about everything.

LEOPARD LOVE :: BACK TO THE ROOTS


Hey hey!
It's been three weeks since my last blogpost and I am really sorry about that, but I just had no time to either go out and shoot or actually edit pictures from previous shootings. My internship is super busy and exhausting so whenever I come home, I just fall asleep at 10.30 pm while re-watching old TV shows or editing pictures. I know, it's crazy.
