MBFW Australia – Day 5 – Denim on Denim

It’s the last post about MBFW Australia – I promise! Well, to be fair, there were no more than 5 days of Fashionweek anyway. On the last day I wore my second favorite outfit – Denim on Denim with orange tassle heels and a cute neck scarf. Those amazing heels were one of my best buys/bargains here in Sydney. They are from Nine West and I got them for an incredible $40 instead of $160!! I am still deeply in love with them, although they might not be the easiest to combine. The neck scarf was actually a little experiment; I found it the day before in one of the goodie bags and since chokers are super in style right now, I thought I might try the scarf out as a chocker and see how it goes…. and I loved it! The colors fit perfectly with the Denim on Denim, and it has that has that sophisticated „Im on a boat, chilling with my glass of champagne“- look… if you know what I mean. The skirt I am wearing has been one of my favorite skirts for more than 2 and a half years now. It has become one of my essential pieces and does not seem to go out of fashion any time soon.

The last day of MBFWA obviously has to be a special one, which is why Oscar de la Renta was given the closing show. While, to be honest, the collection did not really impress me that much, I was delighted to see one of my favorite models, Victoria Secret model Shanina Sheikh on the runway and even in the fashionweek building just passing by me. However, I did not release the fangirl in me, because otherwise I totally would have taken a selfie with that gorgeous lady.

The Most Important Bag Styles – From Tote to Envelope

Bag Styles

We people love to generalize. Generalizing simply makes things easier, because yea, we have to think less. But whenever we generalize, all the little details get lost – and it’s the small things in life that make it so beautiful. The almost unnoticable characteristics that make your best friend, your best friend. The special ingredient in your pasta arrabiata, that makes it outstanding.  Same, same but different. I could actually spend hours talking about this characteristic so inherent to us human beings and all the consequences that come along with it. However, this post is about bag styles. HAHA. Okay where is the connection? Well, I’m just saying, there are so many different bags, that it’s almost a shame calling each bag style simply „bag“, right?

I understand, to most of us a bag is a bag. But let us take a moment and appreciate the different bag styles that exist out there and call them by their real names. You might learn to appreciate them more, plus you have new knowledge to brag about, à la „I bought a new bag today… a bucket bag!“. Don’t worry if you do not know their names yet, the guys from Zalando Lounge created a cool infographic with the most important bag styles you should know. In fact, I also had to educate myself a little bit and so I had a look at my favorite bags and tried to distinguish a little bit. Doing that, I realized that most of my bags are rectangle-shaped – I guess that’s mah thiiiiiiing. Even among the rectangly bags, we can differentiate though… so let’s see!

MBFW Australia 2016 – Day 3

[German translation below]

EN: I know – Its been more than two weeks since MBFW Australia and I still haven’t managed to post all the content I have. Well, I hope you forgive me for being such an unreliable blogger, but indeed the last two weeks have been the very last ones of my Bachelor’s degree and I did have quite some work to do accordingly – even here in Sydney, unbelievable right?! But tomorrow my adventure finally continues and I am flying over to Fiji Islands for 5 days. Fiji. This tiny, tiny thing in the middle of the ocean, basically at the end of the world to the right. I still cannot believe it, but I am super excited. Now I really need to put away my laptop, since I have to wake up in 5:30h… But hey, at least I managed to summarize MBFW Australia Day 3 in pictures for you … :)

DE: Fashionweek ist zwar schon seit zwei Wochen vorbei, aber ich hänge leider immernoch hinterher mit den Posts. Nunja, mir sei verziehen denn in der Tat waren die vergangenen zwei Wochen die letzen meines Bachelorstudiums und dementsprechend – ja sogar hier in Sydney – musste ich so einige Präsentationen und Essays hinter mich bringen. Und da es morgen für mich schon wieder weiter nach Fidschi geht für 5 Tage und ich morgen um 6am aufstehen muss, sollte ich jetzt wohl endlich mal den Laptop wegpacken. Aber hey, immerhin habe ich es geschafft Tag drei der Fashionweek in Sydney in Bildern zusammen zu fassen … :)

MBFW Australia 2016 – Day 2

[English Translation below]

Volles Program gab es auch am zweiten Tag der Fashionweek in Sydney und dieses Mal wusste ich wie der Hase läuft. Mitten im Fashiontrubel, war ich nun Teil der Fashioncommunity und nicht mehr jemand der von Außen zuschaut. Ich hatte meine Crew gefunden, die Security kannte mich, und ich bin rein und raus aus Shows marschiert als wenn ich sonst nichts anderes machen würde. Aber nicht nur deswegen war Tag 2 mein Highlight der Woche, sondern auch outfittechnisch hätte ich es wohl nicht besser machen können. Mein roter, boho Jumpsuit von ASOS kam nämlich extrem gut an bei allen Leuten und auch bei vielen Streetstyle Fotografen. Und so habe ich es dann irgendwie in Harper’s Bazaar Australia geschafft! Ich habe mich natürlich einen Ast abgefreut, wobei eine Verlinkung zu meinem Blog schon nicht schlecht gewesen wäre… Naja.

EN: Also the second day of MBFW Australia had a full program with shows from morning till evening. But this time I knew how the wind blows. Finding myself in the middle of the fashion chaos, I felt being part of the Australian fashion community instead of the German blogger watching from outside. I found my crew, the security guys knew me and I was walking in and out of the shows as if it’s the only thing I do all day. But not only because of that day 2 was the best day of fashionweek for me. Also in terms of my outfit, I could not have decided for a better look – people loved my red, boho jumpsuit from ASOS and so many streetstyle photographers took a picture of me. This is how I eventually ended up finding a picture of myself in Harper’s Bazaar Australia! Of course I am super happy about it, although a little link to my blog would have been amazing … oh well.

// What I wore:
Dress – ASOS (from last summer)
Choker – Sportsgirl

MBFW Australia 2016 – Day 1 Impressions

[English Translation below]

Letzte Woche war einfach verrückt – aber unglaublich spannend. Während bei den meisten Bungee-Jumping oder eine Fahrt durch das Outback auf der To-Do Liste stehen für ihr Auslandssemester in Australien, steht bei mir ganz oben „Sydney Fashionweek besuchen“. Und genau diesen Punkt kann ich jetzt mit Erfolg abhaken. 20 Minuten Gehweg vom Fashionweek Gebäude entfernt, bin ich jeden Morgen mit meinen High Heels durch Redfern gestöckelt um einen Einblick in australische Mode zu bekommen.  Anfangs war ich etwas nervös. Hatte Angst, dass ich die Woche allein verbringen werde oder irgendwas peinliches anstelle – was gar nicht mal so unwahrscheinlich ist. Aber bereits am ersten Tag habe ich jede Menge Leute aus den verschiedensten Branchen kennengelernt. Ob mit einem „Hey, ich liebe deine Tasche“ oder „Kann ich ein Foto von deinem Look machen?“ oder sonstigen – ja quasi Anmachsprüchen – irgendwie kommt man dann doch mit vielen Leuten in ein nettes Gespräch. Und dann wird man irgendwann zu Fashionweek Buddies. Alleine habe ich mich deshalb kein bisschen gefühlt, im Gegenteil, ich war froh unter Gleichgesinnten zu sein. Von deren Geschichten, Ziele und Träume zu hören hat mich nicht nur inspiriert sondern auch wieder daran erinnert dass sich harte Arbeit auszahlt.

 

EN: 

Last week was just crazy – but also extremely exciting. While most of the Australian exchange students put something like bungee- jumping or a trip to the outback on their To-Do list, I had „Attending Fashionweek Australia“ at the very top of my list. And now I can successfully tick off this point. Only a 20min walk away from my place, Australian fashion people from all over the world gathered to get an exclusive sneak peak into the collections of Australia’s hottest designers. I was pretty nervous at first. I was afraid that I will be spending the week by myself or do something ridiculously embarrassing, which yeah is not very unlikely. But already during the first day I met so many people from different industries. Even if its only a „I love your bag!“ or a „Can I take a picture of your style?“ – somehow you always find yourself in the middle of an interesting conversation after a while. And then you suddenly have formed your fashionweek crew, haha. I did not feel lonely any single minute, it was quite the contrary, I was happy to be around people that share the same interests. To hear about their stories, goals and dreams was inspiring and reminded me that hard work pays off.

The Long Red Dress

[English translation below]

Ich habe es gesehen und wusste direkt. Sydney Town Hall ist die perfekte Location um mein schönes, langes rotes Kleid endlich abzulichten. Ich habe es mit letzten Sommer bei Missguided bestellt, und wie das so ist mit solchen tollen Kleidern, noch kein einziges Mal angezogen. Irgendwann wird es jedoch noch den perfekten Anlass dafür geben. Und ganz ehrlich, als Blogger hortet man sowieso ein paar Sachen, die sich einfach gut auf Fotos für den Blog machen…

Jedenfalls bin ich super froh über das Resultat der Bilder. Sie sind genauso wie ich sie mir im Kopf ausgemalt hatte. Ja, dafür habe ich sogar meine Lockenmähne geglättet! Da bei dem Shoot so viele tolle Bilder bei rausgekommen sind, werde ich dem Shoot einfach mal zwei Posts widmen. Den ersten Teil gibt es heute!

EN: I saw it and knew it instantly. Sydney Town Hall would be the perfect location for finally shooting my beautiful, long red dress. I ordered it last summer from Missguided and haven’t worn it once since then. But I guess that the thing with such dresses – you have the urge to buy them but not really the perspective to wear them out. Well, I’m still waiting for the right occasion and convinced that it will come one day. To be honest though, we bloggers seem to always buy some stuff that will look good for blog pictures…

Anyway, I am super happy about the result of our shooting. The photos turned out just the way I pictured them in my mind. Yes, I even straightened my hair for it! Because we got so many great pictures out of the shoot, I decided to dedicate two posts to it.
