In the past few months it was quite calm and silent here on the Broken Cookies planet and today we want to explain what exactly happened. As you know we are both in our final years at the moment, so David is having his final exams soon and is about to start his Master's dissertation with IBM (yes, it's pretty awesome! :) ). Sabinna already handed in her BA thesis and is now spending days and nights working out patterns, sewing samples, creating her own fabrics and putting all these bits and bobs together in order to come up with a final collection (only 5 weeks left until the show!! ). We know that you are used to more frequent content on our blog and we are truly sorry that we have been absent quite a lot. We hope that you aren't too upset with us, dear girls and boys and promise to keep you updated as much as possible on our exciting journeys through final years, especially on Facebook and Instagram. Sabinna has now another Instagram account for her fashion, so head over if you are curious. Also we have some major news for you, like super duper big, so stay tuned!!! And today we want to show you some sneak peeks of Sabinna's work. How do you like it?
No matter how much we love living in London, we still miss Vienna a lot. It's a very special place for us: this is where we both grew up, where we met and fell in love. A while ago we were contacted by the Vienna-based jewellery designer Wienkind. She told us how she loves to take pictures of her favourite places in Vienna and then to transform those into beautiful jewellery pieces. We were intrigued and wanted to see them all! Sabinna picked a ring and a neckalce showing the Riesenrad, which is one of the first things she visited as a little kid, back then in the 90s, when she moved to Vienna.
Spring comes and with it the time to get out your favourite pieces for sunny weather. I have to admit I have troubles to say good-buy to my lovely vintage fake fur jacket, so I guess I might keep it until the summer will part us. Another piece that I currently love is this wonderful white leather bag by Vagabond via Sarenza. Perfect size, perfect shape - and obviously perfect colour. :)
As you saw on Facebook, we went to the Burberry Outlet in London on Saturday. It is located in 29-31 Chatham Pl (London E9 6LP) and offers menswear, womenswear and accessories by Burberry Prosum, Burberry Brit and Burberry Sport. We have to admit that our expectations weren't that high. We thought that the discounts are not going to be that huge and that it will be very hard to find suitable sizes. On arrival we were surprised by the look of the outlet: It looks like an actual Burberry shop, everything is very organised, there is no sale or outlet feeling in the store. The first thing that we had to check out were the trench coats (what else! :) ). We found a lot of beautiful pieces but unfortunately not all of them fulfilled our discount wishes. But it's definitely worth it to take your time and dig for some treasures. After going through million of pieces we found a womenswear suit for £29 and a wonderful menswear jacket with the most amazing details. So we think that if you are in London any time soon, you should check the outlet out (let us know what you got! :) ). We are going to post soon the pieces that we bought, so stay tuned for that.
We had a crazy week full of travels and work (see what we were up to on our Instagram). What is the best way to end such a wonderful and stressful week? Yes, a 'From a painting post'! Today is all about Nan Lawson and her cute illustration girl. Really love that green jumper and adorable blushes - a perfect every day look for Sabinna. Spice it up with a red clutch and some heels and voilà: perfect and comfy outfit is ready.
