I've got the blues!
Finally took the plunge and tried the cape "trend" - the lovely people at Blue Vanilla were kind enough to send me this über cool cape. Very much out of my comfort zone, still this mix of blues really gets me waiting impatiently for spring. Did I mentioned is super warm?
Here you can find the cape.
On a totally different not, I just redid my bedroom and living room and I couldn't be happier - arhhh much explained lack of posts overall. Though is still work in progress you can find some snippets on my instagram:

Hey hey! So I'll skip intro and start with a little story. I went shopping the other day, and believe me Berlin has some really amazing places for this; from über high end to mass marketed stores, you name it. So my plan was to buy a suitcase (which I did) and usually I like to go to TK MAXX for these (they have Swiss Army, CK & co. always on sale). So while there I started browsing the isles a bit and found one pretty IRO jacked discounted from 490€ to a mere 23€. Yes, you read that well 23€. And then I though, well that's a steal; checked it out, no defects, a gorgeous Marsala (yeah, another word for burgundy, oxblood & co.) color, simple, chic, my taste. Then I checked the interior label (the one with all the material info, washing temperature and all.) and guess what 100% Polyester made in China. What!? Safe to say I left it exactly where I found it and left the store with my new suitcase. Don't get me wrong, I like to believe that I do understand fashion and to some extent I know that sometimes when buying high end you pretty much buy the brand but to get the same quality (or even lower) than you would get in H&M or Zara, is beyond my understanding.
Now I've always been a bit reluctant to buy or collaborate with Asian companies because of my perceived lack of quality in their clothes but I decided to give it a try. Much to my surprise, this warm, chunky knit, oversized sweater from Sheinside turned out to be quite a steal (65% cotton). Otherwise, my outfit is plain and simple, just as I like it. On another note, next week I'll be back home for a couple of days and the week after my home redecoration process begins *excited*.

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the holidays, you've been good and got all the pretty gifts you wanted. Today I wanted to show you 2 outfits incorporating these pretty over the knee boots I got just in time for Christmas. I'm not a big fan of sparkling outfits in general, so I give you two toned down but still festive Christmas outfits suitable for a lunch/dinner party with friends no matter if you're a skirts or pants kind of girl. Let me know down in the comments what you think and Happy Holidays again!
