Fashion Week Time means Model’s Off Duty Style Time! I guess most of them are already in an autumn kinda mood, because bright colors are nowhere to be found. Instead, models like Magdalena Frackowiak go back to black. I cant blame them, you can definitely never go wrong with black, it’s elegant and always fashionable. If you’re wondering how to look as simple yet chic as those models, just look at their basics, a classic black blazer is a must have for everyone, and I mean EVERYONE. The same goes for black bags, sunglasses, and ballet flats. So easy yet so stylish.

I’m back from Munich, had a blast, and am now trying to catch up with all the fashion shows in Milan. One that especially caught my eye was Versace. I read a lot of negative stuff about the collection because of its ‘mermaid gone hooker’ tackiness, and while I agree to a certain extent, I cant deny that the shades of blue that were used are absolutely stunning. They remind me of the beautiful color of the ocean around the Greek islands, including all shades of green, turquoise and blue you can imagine. This is what a summer collection should look like, it should make you miss long, hot summer days by the beach.

Tomorrow the beer mayhem will start again for me and my friends, we will go to Oktoberfest! I had so much fun last time (two years ago) so I am really excited to go back. Moreover, Munich is like my second home now since I lived there for three months during my internship at InStyle. My dirndl this year looks quite traditional, red and white, and I even got a suiting hat, necklace and pretzel earrings! As some of you might know, Julia Stegner loves to attend Oktoberfest, too and was actually discovered there, which makes it an important places for Julia. I really hope I’ll see her there this year, that would be like the cherry on top of a great trip!

Aaaaand the third Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is over. Last night, the shopping streets of Berlin were packed until midnight and I was in the middle of it, of course! I tried to soak in as much as possible of the third FNO and went to, what felt like, 50 stores. Starting with Schumacher, which was amazing as always. Dorothee Schumacher greeted everyone personally and handed her guests fortune cookies and lucky charms. After half an hour there, I went into aaaall the participating shops at Kudamm, for example Tommy Hilfiger or Louis Vuitton. Most of them had their own DJ, some snacks, and lots of drinks for the customers. After four glasses of champagne I took the free FNO Shuttle to Friedrichstraße and spent the rest of the night at the Marc Jacobs store - with even more drinks - Oh and, what i bought? Some really nice boots at Zara! Enjoy my pictures…
Cotton Candy Hair, anyone? I’ve seen plenty of editorials lately with pink haired models. It seems to be one of those weird trends that no one really started, but everyone followed. In some freaky way, I really like pink hair, even though I would never have the guts to dye my own hair any other color but brown or blonde. The world would be a much happier place if everyone had cotton candy hair…
Slowly Germany gets all the shops we need. After Bershka in Berlin last week, Urban Outfitters opened its doors in Frankfurt today and I was there to check it out. About 60 people lined up to be the first ones allowed in, a good amount of people if you ask me, not too packed but still enough to please the staff. At 5 pm, doors opened and I was very happy about the fact that they were on time (a very rare thing in the fashion world).
The store is quite big, there are three levels packed with clothes, jewellery, shoes, bags, underwear, books, CDs, and even home accessories. The prices are pretty high, so I was pleased to find a SALE corner and bought a blouse that was 60% off. The by far best about the store is the wide selection of cool jewellery and the 10% student discount. UO did a good job with this branch, it really reminded me of the one in London, which is a good thing. The staff were friendly and helpful as well.
Urban Outfitters in Frankfurt can be found at Rossmarkt, right at the train station “Hauptwache”. I’ll definitely be back soon! Here are some pics I took today…
