JOOP!




When it comes to rules, I am honestly saying that I don't have any how to dress. I do what I love and I dress how I feel. This is my preview from the JOOP! FW 2014 Collection which will be available online from the mid of September. I had the chance to pick my favorite item from their lookbook and this one made it into my heart. The dress is not only super comfy, it's also pure but also decorative in it's design. The loose fit and the whole combination of colors is what I want for autumn to arrive.


During the shoot I was asked by young and surprisingly also by older women about the JOOP! dress. But I was not really surprised that it got so much attention. I felt very confident and comfortable in. Playfulness and simplicity -  It's definitely one of those timesless pieces we will be always in need of. The JOOP! dress and the look have a touch of super bohemian roots, I've combined it with Sandals by Apachestyle and a simple fringed Backpack from Asos and shades by Ray Ban.

Zalando Summer House 2014 - Schloss Herzfelde



It was time to leave for Zalando Summer House 2014. Adventure, super delicious food, picture perfect locations, surprises, pretty warm hearted people and a big heap of memories was awaiting us. I rarely have seen such a magnifique 'castle' or as the owner's of Schloss Herzfelde named it as a guest house. Truly everything was just perfectly furnished. The art, the interior and the interaction of colors. A masterpiece of art and a come together of a very good taste of the old and new.

So the arrival was last thursday, Julia and I had to get up for a very early flight from Amsterdam to Berlin. We had a few hours before the Zalando PR Team took us to the secret location in the countryside of Germany and used this for some time off in the city. I do not want to tell you everything in this first article about who I met and what happend. Our evening ended up perfectly with a super b BBQ in the garden of Schloss Herzfelde.

Amsterdam #OOTD



Image and video hosting by TinyPic

And here it is. The first look from our Amsterdam trip for Mexx x Stylight. After getting up really early, catching the flight to the Netherlands, Julia and I used the opportunity to shoot an outfit. It was pretty cold but we had luck with the sunny weather. Currently, I am absolutely still in summer mood, but the weather conditions have forced me to wear my Asos poncho and beloved Plein Sud leather panties again. You might have recognized my new bag by Loup Noir which I am carrying quiet a lot at the moment. 



The sizing is perfect to get in my notebook, camera, beauty essentials, wallet and all the necessary stuff while I am traveling. The Loup Noir Leo Grey Shopper became my travel companion and carryall. I think this timeless one will often accompany now for a while. The weekend already started and I hope that you are making the most out of it. I have a huge to-do-list and I am sure that you are going to spend your saturday night more enjoyable than me. Enjoy and take care. Bisous, Sylvia

Nude




The photo retouch can sometimes be really overwhelming. Especially the travel diary posts can take up to days, weeks and than to months. To curate the content and the highest quality imagery can be really tough. As you read, I have a lot of unpublished images which I hopefully will manage to upload step by step. 

Nevertheless, here is finally another #ootd which I wanted to share so much earlier with you. It's too bad that the weather is super cloudy and cold in Germany at the moment. As you might know I am rather a beach bum and the biggest happiness for me would be to live  nearby the beach with a lot of sun and bikini vibes all year long. Autumn / Winter might have incredibly beautiful clothing, but I would rather prefer a sunbeam, a big smile in my face, bikinis, fringed kimonos and heart touching sunsets for my everyday life. 

In this post I am wearing one of my favorite summer dresses via Asos. The embellished cuff dress with pleated skirt made of easy-care chiffon has a fitted waist seam, a plunge v-neckline, a wrap front and among all it's regular fit became my summer must-have. The Asos dress is available in cobalt and nude. I've combined it with Scarosso Leopard booties and my Celiné 'Audrey' shades.

Dom Pérignon Stage Dinner




It was definitely time for another lifestyle imagery up on this blog. As I told you in my previous post I was invited to the Dom Pérignon Stage Dinner in Hamburg. I rarely attend events by my own, but for this time it was not that bad as I maybe firstly imagined. The evening started with finger food created by the three star chefs Thomas Martin, Christoph Rüffer and Karlheinz Hauser in combination with the Dom Pérignon trunk. The coolest guy of that night was definitely Friedrich Lichtenstein. 

I met a lot of very charismatic and lovely people and enjoyed the dinner with three chosen Dom Pérignon Champagnes. My favorite is the Dom Pérignon P2 1998, this one is truly just perfectionism. The vintage charisma is unique, the creamy taste that is at once distinctive and engaging and long echoes. Smoky notes, which open into a harmonious balance. 

I was also satisfied by the Dom Pérignon Rosé 2003, it tasted like an how hmm... could I describe it... probably like an piece of art. Anyway, it was the combination of the desert, the burnt almond cream with white gascogne peach lemonade and lavender with the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2003 was created by Karlheinz Hauser and honestly my highlight of the stage dinner. The cultural and artistic highlight of the evening offered a spectacular production in three acts, created by opera director and conductor Christoph Hagel and theater director Nicholas Mickrige.


Always a pleasure to meet this Lady, Larissa from the german newspaper 'Die Welt'. 

The scenery, absolutely picture perfect - without being able to complain. I hope you enjoy the few impressions I have taken yesterday evening at the event, that was not so easy in my Christian Louboutin heels which aren't that comfortable I must admit, but I really wanted to share at least a few of my moments with you. Not to forget, the official dinner will be held today in the Laeiszhalle. To those who are still interested to dive into a world pure of senses can purchase the tickets via Dom Pérignon

The Kimono #OOTD




Although I wouldn't have imagined I would be able to work off all my mails, manage my office work and do loads of shootings with my Julia from N°93. Since Monday I am working for more than 16 hours per day on all the things that I couldn't manage from the foreign countries - thanks to lousy internet connection. But if you love what you do, you will never work a day. 


Wearing here the ASOS Kimono with Floral Embroidery and Fringing. This one goes perfectly with an one piece swimsuit or even in combination with an off-duty look. NEW IN, my Daniel Wellington Watch.

The Gypsy Jumpsuit




Summer is honestly my favorite season of the year. Hair gets lighter and skin gets darker. But that's not all what I desire about the gypsy days. I am especially addicted to long summer nights, bikinis, tunics, dresses and jumpsuits.  This one I am wearing up here became my fav item. 

Best of Budget is here the device - The ASOS gypsy playsuit in print is not only functional but also comfy as hell. The lightweight fabric makes and breaks the fashion rules and became my personal perfect off-duty companion. I absolutely adore the loose fit, just feeling comfortable in and at the same time playful and super feminine. 

I think that the print goes perfectly tone-in-tone with my Sophie Hulme, topped off with my basic sunnies by Celiné. Espadrilles and earrings are also from ASOS. I have linked the pieces in the 'Items of the Day' section below. I am really hoping for some summer nights in Hamburg, because I truly do not want to put this playsuit in the rearmost corner of my wardrobe. Oh my, oh my... it's not the time for that!
