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?

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.

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 😉

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

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.
