Walk the line- Mix and Match Stripes








 Coat: Asos; Shorts: Asos; Bag: Asos, Gloves; Müller, Boots: Nine West; Belt: Asos; Sunnies: Firmoo

I love the clean look of mixing and matching stripes. Doesn't it have such a striking impact? The red gloves and burgundy bag arrange the perfect amount of color. Do you like to mix stripes for a maximum impact?

Blazer: Halhuber; Faux Leather Pants: H&M(sold out online but here the article No: 75-9535 similar; Bag: Designer Bag Italy, Pumps: Via Uno; Shirt: TK Maxx; Necklace: H&M

I purchased this costume blazer back in 2009 after I graduated from university for my upcoming job interviews and haven't worn it ever since. After 4 years of neglecting it will definitely be my fall staple. I love mixing classic pieces with modern elements as this leather pants. It takes the dusty costume to a more modern level. No outfit is complete without a necklace, so I added  my bubble bar necklace for a feminine touch. Et Voilá, another modern office look is born!

PS: If you are still on the hunt for a good looking leather pants, you should get this H&M one, not only do they feel like real butter leather but they look so real too and for only 30€ you can't beat that. I haven't found them online anymore, so I wrote the article No down in case you wanna check  the availability in the store :-)

New Year's Eve look










Dress: Asos; Heels: Zara, Necklace: Thejewelrylady here and Romwomen; Clutch: c/o Hugo Boss via Parfümerie Weber; Lip Stick: Mac

Thanks to the designer Diane Fürstenberg the first jersey wrapped dress was introduced 40 years ago to the modern metropolitan woman. This dress is especially very flattering for women with an hourglass figure. It has beautiful wrap details over the midsection creating a seamless flow and hugs a woman's curves. It hides your tummy pretty well and the V-shaped neckline accentuates curves.
A must have for any fashion wardrobe and so versatile for different occassion. My new years eve ensemble is born!

Warm wishes go to all my regular readers. I appreciate all your support and nice comment you always leave me to brighten my day. Cheers to a wonderful year 2014!

Put some leather gloves on it- Chic Winter Ensemble






Dress: Zara last seen here; Cape: Marshalls last seen here; Boots: Mai Piu Senza; Gloves: Görtz; Bag: Vintage

Floral pattern has always been a significant style of me, it underlines my bubbly romantic playful personality- it also influenced the choice of my bloger name "fleurani".
No pattern can be styled so versatile, so I am presenting you an elegant floral winter ensemble in saturated colors to tone down the "sweet playful" factor . The dress got a wintery touch by using winter key pieces as my leather gloves, boots and a cape. So who said florals are only for the spring/summer time -this look can disabused you.

I am so happy to announce that Annette @lady of style won the beautiful statement necklace. I have emailed you. CONGRATS!

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.
