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 ChloƩ 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. ChloƩ 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
