They’re pink, they have a bow and they are embroidered with sparkling gemstones. What more could you ask for in ballerina flats? I know, they were only 10 Euros! Gotta love Primark! I guess you could say that these Ballerinas are way too cute and fit a five year old’s feet better than a 21 year old’s, but I couldn’t resist. They actually remind me of Chloe flats, I don’t know which collection it was, but I am pretty sure that these Primark ones are a knock off. Anyways, I can’t wait to wear these.
During the same Primark visit I also bought a pair of shoes that are pretty much the exact opposite of my Ballerinas. They’re bold, they’re high and they’re perfect for Fashion Week. Why? Well, High Heels are a must, but you also gotta feel comfortable and these beauties offer both, thanks to the platform heel. I think I’ll wear these at the BLESS x WEEKDAY Collaboration Party next week, which I will of course blog about, too : )
Usually, I am not a big fan of crazy prints, but this pink/purple one from the latest Talulah collection is what I wanna wear all summer. It looks so pretty and cool at the same time, like a beautiful pink sunset or a purple starry sky. It’s girly but not too cute and I love the fact that it was combined with simple black pieces. This print is my favorite from Melbourne Fashion Week though I have to say that I saw a lot of other impressive outfits as well, the Australian designers seem to focus mainly on wearable clothes that aren’t too over the top, which is great! And yes, I’d wear the shoes and the hat, too!

Today’s news that H&M Home will open its first store in Frankfurt made my day. When I moved from Berlin to a town close to Frankfurt last year, I wasn’t too thrilled about it shopping wise, but now it really seems that Frankfurt has a whole lot more interesting stores to offer than Berlin. There’s Primark, Hollister, a huuuuge H&M which carries the biggest selection of the Trend line I’ve ever seen and soon a H&M Home and also a Zara Home. I can’t wait to shop for colorful spring decoration for my apartment! Only a few more weeks to go, H&M Home will open at the start of April.
Now can we pleeeease get a Topshop? Or Monki? Or River Island?

They’re not my favorite models in the whole world, but I have to admit that Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel can be quite versatile. During the past week they have been as commercial as it can get at a promo event for Victoria’s Secret only to strut down the runway for Givenchy in Paris a few days later. Blowing kisses in super tacky candy colored sequin dresses seems to come natural to them, at least that’s what they do for VS all year long so it is definitely nice to see them in the high fashion world of Paris for a change. Especially Candice has surprised everyone with her transformation from bombshell to the cover model of Vogue Italia earlier this year and seems to embrace the high fashion life doing numerous shows this season. Thumbs up for VS models going HF!
