I love chunky sweater dresses and I’m telling you, I can never have enough of them!

Last week I was very lucky to spot at H&M my new essential knit dress for the upcoming cold months. This lovely pale pink dress was a real bargain – just £ 12.99! I’ll be cosy and comfy wearing it together with plain black leggings and a pair of black lace up ankle boots.

I decided to go for a simple look because the cable knit and the oversized turtleneck are already decorative enough but you may want to accessorize the dress with a bird brooch from JoY or a long chunky scarf for a bit more edgy look.

Keep yourself warm, darlings!

The hats for this season are being reinvented and believe me aything goes! A/W ’09 hats are hot, funny, sculptural and individual. Don’t be afraid to wear faux fur hats, turbans, classic berets, plush toy hats, party hats, feather plume, giant rabbit ears, tailored men’s hats, beaded helmets or even umbrellas, as seen on the runway of Alexander McQueen.

Get inspired and give your A/W headweare a sophisticated and eccentric twist. Play with headpieces you have got already. Be creative, arty and brave when selecting your amazing head gear for the winter.

Reinvented masquerade

Since this season is all about making your head stand out from the crowd, why not party in style with a chic piece like a venetian mask. Discover my masquerade look where excitement, lightness, provocation, intimacy and anxiety blend all together and challenge the A/W ’09 hot catwalk hats. What I wanted to achieve is a look that plays with conventional and contemporary, with wearable and unwearable, with statement and simplicity…

Think: Life with Nature

Think: Casual relaxed attitude

Think: Flannel check shirts and dresses

—————————————————————————————————————————–

I spent the last couple of days in the South of Germany, eating yummy sausages, walking through the corn fields and woods, eating fruit from the garden and wearing comfy rural clothing. For this spontaneous trip to the countryside, I took with me my new flannel check shirt from Gap and absolutely loved its softness and the small, neutral checks. One sunny morning, I styled my friend Antje with a flannel purple dress from Tom Taylor and her black shiny wellington boots. She looked amazing with that soft edge and folk charm emerging from her outfit. I finished my look with Gap biker shoes and thick woolen socks from Next and off we went on the Nature walk.

Flip through the recent issues of fashion magazines and you will find countless sparkling shopping pages and editorials.

“It’s time to sparkle” says Grazia. “Disco diva” says Vogue. “The Glitz and The Glamour” says Elle Collections.

There is no other choice but to blink, wink, shimmer, shine, gleam and flash in the A/W season!

A couple of weeks ago, Antje, a friend of mine, was visiting me and at some point, exhausted after a busy day in The City, we started fooling around, digging in my closet and playing dress up. It was like being 10-13 again. She tried on one of my “recent investments” and fell in love with that flapper sequin dress straightaway …. So I grabbed my camera and let her turn into a shiny butterfly ….
