Trend Setters link up on Statement necklaces + GIVEAWAY+ Radiant Orchid Dress













cobalt blue Statement necklace: the jewelry lady here; Coat: Zara, Dress: Asos; Boots: Nine West, Bag: Asos, rainbow necklace: romwomen; sunnies: c/o: firmo

Statement necklaces are definitly my favorites pieces to add dimension to my looks. When i saw that  cobalt red necklace piece in the collection of the jewellry lady it was literally screaming "Momy" and how can I not adopt it to my jewelry family. My regular readers obviously know  about my  major weakness for statement necklaces. If you are - like me-  on the hunt for pretty new pieces, take a look at her collection and embellish your  looks with the various pieces from her collection. 
Here is a collection of my current favourites that I've purchased in nearly every color cobalt green, red, white. A girl can't have enough necklaces, right? ;-)



A rule I go by when revamping my outfits with an eyecatching necklace is to keep it simple and sleek. I also minimize distractions by avoiding wearing other jewelry as bracelets and earrings or at least keep them to a minimum. I was donning earrings here as they are very subtle and don't steal the show.

In my eyes that beautiful necklace doesn't complete my ensemble it makes it! I complimented it with a bold lipcolor though and my favorite new Radiant orchid Dress, can't be more excited that it's the Pantone's Color of the year 2014 :-)



I’m so excited to partner with the jewelry lady to give one of you lucky fashionistas the chance to win this beautiful necklace !  I haven’t stopped wearing this beautiful piece since I received it and get so many compliments on it. Great news, you can purchase this and other necklace and receive 10% off when you mention "fleurani" at the jewelry lady.

British Chic








Cape: TK Maxx Bielefeld; turtle neck: Zara; skirt: Zara, Boots: Görtz; Bag: Vintage

Since I got that grey cape, it was on heavy rotation, last seen here. It's the perfect piece for those transitional seasons to layer any of my looks and to dress them up. That checked skirt does contribute to a british appearance, doesn't it? I purchased it years ago and it's def one of my winter skirts to go, last seen here

If you wonder why my head is cut off in most the of pics, my mom took over as a photographer while we were running errands and she is so super up to date when it comes to technology. She mastered it perfectly to focus the DSL camera on the clothes, not so much on other things, but who cares right, it's a fashion blog and readers don't wanna see my HEAD. Thanks mom you did so good and I love you anyways!

Don’t forget to join our next TrendSetters challenge  “Statement Necklace”, so save the date – December 1st, style the look (it has to be a new post) and join the challenge!!! Next Monday you ‘ll see the illustration of one of the challenge participant that Elena just painted.

snuggled up in cognac









 Knit Cardigan: Marshalls; Top: Hallhuber; Scarf: Zara; Jeans and Boots: H&M; Hat: TK Maxx, Belt: C&A

A comfy long knit cardigan is such a fall staple to keep warm and do some layering. Neutrals belong to my fall wardrobe as amen in the church. I was playing with different brown hues and added my white destroyed jeans to add some crispness. The burgundy lipstick isthe ideal accessory for some splash of color. I tend to wear that lipcolor alot around that season

Have a great start in the week!
NOTE: Don't forget to join our link up on statement necklaces on December 1st. I will do a give away on a beautiful necklace.

Romwomen coat + firmoo sunglasses











Coat: Romwomen (c/o); Dress: Asos; Sunglasses: Firmoo (c/o); Boots: Nine West; Clutch: Hugo Boss (c/o thanks to Weber Parfümerie , Necklace: The jewelry lady here

If you are looking for a classic elegant style, opt for this super gorgeous Romwomen coat. I am amazed by this ultra chic striped design and streamlined silhouette. The peter pan collar add up to a darling look and I really like the retro, feminine soft and romantic vibe it distributes to the rest of this ensemble. There is this, this this and this one on my coat wishlist. Romwomen offers a variety of stylish inexpensive items, that you shouldn't miss out.

Another beautiful dress I purchased recently is this closet dress that has a host of stylish details as this floral print the pockets (which woman doesn't appreciate pockets in a dress?) and the crew neckline. Simply beautiful and it blends in perfectly with this flirty coat. Not to mention my obsession with statement necklace that is a permanent part of my wardrobe.

As a permanent sunglasses and glasses strap, I was so excited to pick out this burgundy sunglasses from Firmoo to add to my collection. I haven't had any design in that shape nor color. I love how navy blue and burgundy make such a great statement fall combo. Just recently I bought my second pair of every day glasses and I can totally recommend the great inexpensive designs and fit of their collection. If you are looking for glasses right now, make sure to check out their homepage: Firmoo is offering a 30$ vouche to their classic series eyeglasses to 5 of my readers that I will pick randomly, so let me know who is interested, ok? Also, who is interested in any kind of cooperation with firmoo, click here.

PS: My friend Elena from Dc in style and I are hosting a link up on statement necklaces on December 1st. I will in addition make a giveaway, that Tonya from the jewelry lady was so kind to gift to my readers . So make sure to join us in less then 3 weeks :-)

Cape + Cap










Cape: Marshalls similar; Hat: Footlocker similar; Dress: Asos; Gloves: Görtz similar; Necklace and boots old but similar; Zara, Bag: Vintage, Tights: Wolford

I lived nearly for a year in Budapest back in 2009 for my foreign semester and internship, hands down, one of the most charismatic cities I have ever visited. It has -among other  beautiful spots- an island "Margaretha Island" that is surrounded by the danube river, and the perfect place to make romantic picknicks,  relax and do some jogging. I bought this cap to do some work out on this island because I have pretty sensitive eyes and can't stand sunglasses while running. Long story short, that cap never felt any of my sweat and first was used this fall :-). Even with gym clothes I set great value on fashionability. This houndstooth pattern cap blends in pefectly with my new favorite key fall piece, a cape, such an essential item to put over for not too chilly days. The stones and flower  necklace and the leather gloves serve as the perfect finishing touch to this mixed style ensemble.
Isn't this forest with its changing colorful leaves so beautiful? It's only like 5 walking minutes away from my house, *lalalalaloooove it*
