Glimpses at Fashion went "From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk" #jpgmuc


Good morning guys, yesterday evening my boyfriend and I returned from our trip to Munich and it was really amazing. I should be sitting here, correcting French tests for school but I am not really motivated...How surprising is that...? I definitely prefer to share my weekend with you guys, just because it is so much more fun.



Although it wasn't my first stay in Munich, I have been amazed at the beauty of this wonderful German town. In Munich you have everything...beautiful old buildings,houses, museums, great parks, the river Isar (as it still follows its natural course unlike our river Main). You have also great streets for shopping such as the famous #Maximilianstraße. It is really hard to walk down this beautiful street with all those fantastic shops and knowing that the millions in my bank account are not there (yet :-))...




Apart from the lacking millions, everything was perfect. We had a wonderful hotel not far away from the city centre, stlyed in a way that I really love. Simple, minimal and timeless....you could just feel at home at #Bold.






With the hotel being perfect and the weather being just fine, we spent a beautiful weekend in Munich. On Saturday we were most of the time outside as it was so sunny and warm and we took a long walk along the river Isar. The atmosphere was great and I had the impression that the summer came back to just pay a visit to this lovely German town. 


As the Sunday weather was not that fine, we spent most of the day in the beautiful museums of Munich. Even if you are not the museum type it is worth to visit one or two of the famous museums in Munich as the buildings in and of themselves are extraordinarly impressive - as for example the #Lenbachhaus or the #Pinakothek der Moderne (just to mention two of them...).

#JPGMUC Jean Paul Gaultier in love with Munich

Monday was the day I had been waiting for for a few months and I was really excited when my boyfriend dropped me off in front of the #Kunsthalle München on Monday morning...two hours to discover the world of Jean Paul Gaultier #JPGMUC. I was so excited and happy...





I spent two hours of amazament in the world of Jean Paul Gaultier and it was worth every second. Moving up the stairs of the #Kunsthalle München, I entered the anteroom and was taken into the Gaultier atmosphere by the predominance of the nautic look of furniture and signs...






The first hall was dominated by the beginnings of his work. Gaultier's first model, his Teddy Bear #Nana, looks so cute and friendly and kind of creates a certain connection between you and the great Jean Paul Gaultier. It just makes him a human being like anyone else...After having examined one of the most amazing bustiers, I have ever seen, I entered the realm of blue, the second room, which was definitely my favourite one.

Apart from all those wonderful dresses, robes, skirts and shirts - I really love love love the nautic look - all those models in this realm of blue, including Gaultier had their things to say to you... Due to these extraordinary video installations not only the models but also the master himself are brought to life. Everyone of them had something to say and the whole room was filled with voices that sound so familiar and strange at the same time. A most unusal and fascinating atmosphere...



Every single room of #JPGMUC had its own particualar aura. It were not only the voices of the models that made me feel being a part of Gaultier's world of fashion. It was also the closeness to all those wonderful creations, every piece of them being so unique and artful. Gaultier is really a fashion genius. His use of extraordinary materials in fashion design such as animal feather, animal skin, crystals, metal cans, jet and elastic turns every piece into a piece of art that you want to look at endlessly. A most amazing fashion experience...


After having finished with the wonderful wedding gowns, that make us girls just wanting to get married just for the sake of wearing these extraordinary gowns, I happily left. My boyfriend was waiting already outside (not being that much into fashion as I am) and I automatically took him to #Maximilianstrasse for another cup of cappuccino...just to enjoy this atmosphere that Gaultier has evoked in me a little longer - secretly..and for myself.

Guys, that was it, my trip to Munich. I had the greatest fun there and I enjoyed it very much writing to you about it. If you have the opportunity to come to Munich, visit #JPGMUC. You will love it, guys. I am sure.

I hope you enjoyed our little journey into the world of Gaultier...
I am really looking forward to writing to you soon.

The ultimate 7 Feel-Good must haves every fashionable woman needs in January 2017

Hey, guys! After almost three weeks of winter holidays, I should feel totally relaxed right now. But I don’t. It is the last weekend before I have to go back to work on Monday and motivation is the last thing I am feeling right now. The holidays have been filled with many wonderful moments – visiting family, friends, parties, eating in restaurants …- however, I have missed one important part. Going away for a few days, relaxing somewhere in a beautiful hotel by the sea or in the mountains…I cannot help but missing this essential part of my holidays. Or maybe it is just that this time I have been unable to find some relaxation during the few hours spent at home… It`s no use moaning. Monday is approaching and it is approaching very fast…So, my personal challenge of the weekend is to motivate myself for going back to work on Monday… So I am about to outsmart my brain in the best possible way I can by finding beautiful things to think about. Apart from looking for wonderful places to spend m…

You want to be more Parisian wherever you are...?

Hey guys! I am happy to be back here with you and to have found some time to write to you. It is a little bit like coming back home. Finding the time for writing a new post wasn't as easy as I expected this week. Although I haven't worked at all, I enjoyed a lot of my freetime with my wonderful friends and this was really fun and necessary. By the way, they all are really fashion-addicted
and everyone of them has their own style, which I adore so much. I am totally happy about having a French friend, who in this moment is on her way to Paris in order to spend some time with her family. She is just adorable and the Parisian, I would say...As French was my favourite subject at school and as I studied the language for many years, I fell in love with the French language and the culture very early. And for over all these years I couldn't stop myself from asking myself the question of why we admire these beautiful Parisian women so much and what makes them so adorable and unique.…

Look of the week–We love ethno!

Good evening sweethearts! I have just returned from another exam of one of my students and about to leave for an evening with one of my favourite girls. We are going to have some drinks in a bar not too far away from home which is totally ok with me. The week was tough and the weekend is going to be tough as well. As the weather is getting more and more beautiful, it’s the invasion of tourists coming to my sweet little medieval town Seligenstadt. So the weekend will be filled with one guided tour after the other…Definitely time to chill out a little bit this evening… Before I am going to leave, I just wanted to share with you my look of this week which is all about the summer trend 2016…Ethno Style. What I love about the outfit of Alessandra Ambrosio is the combination of a very cool and minimal denim style with a white T-shirt, grey boots and statement bag. The fringed Ethno cardigan in the Spring/Summer colours 2016 sets the perfect accent to this timeless and stylish look. Guys, I h…
