In love with Whistles

Once again Whistles ticks all the boxes.

Ultra flattering jeans with cute blouse 
Love love love the pleats and the dark berry shades

MUSTARD -  have a look at one of my older blog entries

on my wishlist 

I just love Whistles' fashion – it’s so wearable for work and at the same time you're still able to look stylish and on trend.  What do you think?
I am a bit gutted about the relatively high price points but I suppose this makes it more unique and aspiring…

As I am a little cockney (east London) rhyming slang freak I thought I’d let you know – in case you don’t – that the name ‘Whistles’ derives from the rhyming slang ‘whistle and flute’ which stands for ‘suit’.  And that’s how Whistles started off!

Aren’t those black patent pointy court shoes stunning?!?! I can see them teamed up in soooo many ways!

Mad Men collection

Banana Republic has launched a MAD MEN inspired collection online designed by costume designer Janie Bryant. Also the model presenting the new limited edition wears makeup and hair inspired by the era of the 60s.

You can find silky pussy bow blouses, figure flattering dresses / skirts and leopard print accessories. I definitely recommend to check out their website – I’m in love with the silhouettes. 

and what do you think?

can't believe we are having internet problems again at home...

Bubble Tea

After having heard so much about the new drink Bubble Tea I finally tried it today. We went to the Bubble T shop in Munich, am Rindermarkt.

Bubble Tea started off in Taiwan in the 80ies and spread from there over to other eastern Asian countries, then to American China towns and now is finally here.

I asked the girls sitting outside the Bubble T shop if I could take a picture as I really liked their animal print cardis in combination with the bright colourful chairs.

Have you tried bubble tea yet?

Summery light dish

Doesn’t this VEGETARIAN dish look absolutely scrumptious? ...well, I can assure you that I haven’t quite managed yet to create such Bree-van-de-Kamp-like dishes. It was a friend of mine who prepared this summery light plate for us J

Liebeskind Bag and hot days

During the heat wave in Munich I couldn’t resist but to buy this beautiful soft leather LIEBESKIND BERLIN handbag (model: Esther B in stone). Here it is resting on a cute little van belonging to the bistro “zum Laden” ( which means as much as 'to the shop') after a long hot day in the office, followed by a sweaty half hour at the river Isar, a fantastic new hair cut at LILLA and the yummiest “Bollo and Hugo” (Spaghetti Bolognaise that is, and the new summer it-drink Hugo which is white wine/ prosecco, mint and elderflower) at Laden.

Finally our internet at home is up and running again! You won’t believe how lost I felt without it. I mean, it’s not that I don’t have an iPhone or use a computer at work. But there are certain things – like my blog – that I HAVE to and LOVE to do on the laptop in the evenings and weekends at home!
Anyway, life goes on.

On one of the very hot evenings in Munich we headed out for dinner in Schwabing where I stumbled across the new (to me) store OSKAR CLOTHING. As it was past the opening hours -again- I could only take pictures of the window displays and peek into the store. I was absolutely stunned by the cool clean interior of the store. The same simple but nevertheless chic and sophisticated fixtures and fittings are reflected in their fashion as well. I wouldn’t say I am a fan of their website (to be blunt) but their look from peeking into the windows convinced me to go back and have a look inside. I especially fell for this black cape/jumper which I would combine with skin tight leather trousers

Flea Market & Katie Shillingford

Today there was a flea market at the Olympia Park in Munich. Normally it's a football pitch or used for large open air concerts. My boyf., some friends and me went there to look for a cool little something for our new flat. Of course we didn't find anything for the flat - instead I found a pretty white dress which I had to slip on immediately as it turned out to be a lot warmer than I had expected when we left this morning.

Don't you think those skirts on the first pic are fun?

Next Katie Shellingford. The fashion editor at Dazed & Confused.
I am a big fan of her. (It doesn't really go with the above post but as I'm still struggling with no internet at home. That's why I'll combine the two posts :)

...can't wait in about 2 weeks I'll have internet at home again! I'm sooooo looking forward to read in all peace and quiet all your blogs again and be blogging regularly!!

I haven't vanished :) just moved flats and living at the moment without internet connection! apparently it could even take another 3 weeks or so until 1&1 have re-set up our internet - what a BUGGER!

anyway, the chaos is slowly getting less and our flat is looking better every day :)

we escaped to BERLIN for a weekend to get away from the moving stress.

and finally my SILVER toe nails :) it's easy peasy lemon squeezy! just stick on nail stickers (really a bargain from Rossmann or DM) and it lasts forever (well, for 5 days already)!
