Sporty Bracelet, the style mix

We all heard about it: When styling up, start with clothing and finish with accessories. Rules are made to be broken, let’s sometimes start with the shoes or accessories. Moreover with key pieces!
I love this bracelet by ‘Mosstories’ bought by Opia some time ago: the color as well the net material really appealed to me. It’s sporty, and very interesting to match with. It just doesn’t fit with everything.


So, how to wear it?

1. Please avoid the ‘smarties’ effect > don’t match the blue color with the shoes and/ or the bag…
2. Stilbruch: don’t think too sporty. Match with another style, for example a hint of ethno.
3. Not more than 3 colors! Exception made for the clutch.

An outfit idea for summer: military shirt, fine triangle top, straight pants, leather sandals and multicolored clutch.

Black, White & Sparkles

Especially for evenings. As a fall winter 2014-15 collection preview, I was wearing those amazing sparkling flats by Pink Inside that I matched with a long jersey dress -actually from a beach resort co’- and a classic off white jacket. Remember the clutch? I already showed it several times like here, it’s still my favorite.


When I saw the shoes in Pink Inside’s showroom I immediately knew there were for me. It was exactly what I was looking for: A pair of comfortable shoes with a neutral brown color and a light sparkling effect. Perfect! Stay tuned to see the whole collection for next season, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Beauty Essentials in der Badi

Not that I spent so much time in der Badi until now, but it remains to be an important matter. What are those essential products to spend a great, relaxing time there?

There’s not supposed to be a key answer. Besides the relevant sun cream & glasses, I think however that a full make-up is NOT necessary. Why trying to look like in the ordinary life when you have sun and water around you, the best thing ever?

So here are my personal products: one ‘Hamam-Tuch’ (which turns to be a classic in Zurich), the sun-powder by Bobbi Brown and an exotic perfume for after Badi. That’s all. Oh, and a great reading.

DIY for Home/ Lace Paper Tablecloth

Paper is another one fascinating material for DIY, and more generally to decorate for home. As a child I used to create paper beads, but well -it didn’t look that much glamourous! Some time ago I bought lace paper sets in different sizes and forms, actually to improve gift packagings (see there). Everything paper needs for a great result is a light material handling, air space and a bit patience.

I created meanwhile a window display for Monadico in Seefeld, and developed this idea as a ‘boheme lace paper tablecloth’ for our customers and followers. See the whole article on annabelle blog! Enjoy your weekend, xx
