well folks, the title says it all!

there’s a german saying, that loosely translated goes: april does what it wants. and it sure did! we’ve had some very warm spring weather, but also days where you couldn’t leave your jacket at home. even though we are at the beginning of june, the weather is unseasonably cool- i remember last year around this time, i was non stop in shorts, and had banished all my jackets to the “winter closet”.

here are my favorite outfits of the past weeks:

january sales steals!

17 Jan

i just came back from new york, the big apple, the concrete jungle where dreams are made- and i was overwhelmed!

it’s bigger, flashier, more glamorous and just much much more than i had expected in my wildest dreams!

needless to say, i splurged in the post-holiday sales, and i just managed to find space for my new things in my (already overflowing) closet… in the next couple of days, i’ll post pictures of my bargains, which included Hervé Leger dresses, Stuart Weitzman ballerinas, and other goodies, that are so much more expensive in europe!

on my second and third day back, just to get adjusted and overcome my jetlag, i went shopping! the end of year sale was still on, and even if it wasn’t as fresh, i still managed to find a couple of steals!

the first stop was my beloved h&m, at which i found a casual navy racerback tank dress for 1(!!!) euro, a white t-shirt to add to my basics collection… the two items i am most happy about are a beautifully colored denim shirt (i was looking for a nice one since i read Karen’s blog post), and a checkered flannel shirt from the men’s section (think abercrombie meets europe)

next stop was mango… the thing with mango, is that sometimes i find really great stuff, but other times, i really have a hard time even liking their things… i don’t know if i’m the only one with this problem- somewhat strange! in any case, this time i was lucky in finding beautiful beige suede ballerinas with black leather details, for an absolute steal!

my last destination for the day was zara! i absolutely love love love zara… i could seriously always find something there, be it just a top, shoes or a pair of pants- zara consistently delivers! i had to really control myself not to grab things left and right, and focus on what i need or don’t have… as if! my conquest was of course shoes! fabulous patent leather nude platform sandals with gold details, and black textured leather ballerinas – probably the 23rd pair in my closet :)

there, so these are my january sales steals in vienna! i should really stop buying shoes, but it’s like an addiction! i’ll take a picture of my shoe closet for you guys- you’ll know what i mean by addiction :) it’s just that i can’t resist beautiful footwear, and it’s not like i don’t get good use out of them! i made a rule a couple of years ago, not to buy shoes that don’t fit properly… “they will stretch”, “get softer” etc, are all excuses, because deep down, we know they won’t stretch or soften that much to make them comfortable!
