It can be really hard to pick colours that actually suit your hair, skin or eyes. I have to admit that most of the time I end up bying black, white and grey clothes, as they seem to be easy to fit with the rest of the wardrobe. A few weeks ago we went to the amazing Dover Street Market sample sale and I found this gorgeous pair of Jil Sander heels that have this absolutely prefect burgundy colour. I fell in love and bought them (as you can imagine the price was really convincing too as it was a sample sale :) ). At home I realised that I have a lipstick in the same colour - a match made in heaven. I kind of feel that it doesn't matter anymore what I wear "between" the Jil Sander heels and my MAC lipstick, as the focus lies on burgundy.
Here is our late Sunday post, dear girls and boys! And guess what it is? Your favourite special 'From a painting'! :) Today's outfit inspiration comes from this beautiful illustration by Peggy Wolf. When we saw it for the first time, we immediately had to think about my (Sabinna) beloved coat and how awesome it would look with this hair-do and make-up. I spiced everything up with my beautiful bag by Vivienne Westwood and here we go: Sunday outfit inspired by a painting is ready. :) We know we say it in probably every single 'From a painting' post, but we will do it again: we love love love to recreate all these gorgeous and inspiring paintings, drawings and illustrations. Also thanks so much to those of you who send us suggestions for these special on our blog. Keep them coming, we love them! :)
Yesterday we showed you the first part of our awesome Paris trip, and as we promised, here is the second part! As you can see we managed to do quite a lot within this weekend - 3 museums, 5 restaurants, a million walks through 2 million streets and also some shopping of course. :) While editing the photos we were again hit by the wish to go back to Paris as soon as possible. So don't be surprised to meet us on the streets of Paris in 2014! :)
Those of you who follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook know that we spent an amazing weekend in Paris. We had sort of a family reunion there, as my (Sabinna) mum and sisters came to Paris from Vienna and met us there. I (Sabinna) used to live in Paris for a while and David came quite a lot to visit me, so we both know the city and its treasures quite well. Also we have to admit that we go there quite a lot for things like Paris Fashion Week, or to see wonderful places like the Louis Vuitton workshop and museum or to Sample Sales by Dior, Givenchy, etc... . Nevertheless we simply LOVE to come back for food, all the gorgeous museums and the outstanding beauty that Paris has to offer. When you live in London it's super easy to get to Paris with the Eurostar train - 2 hours and you are there! Amazing, isn't it? :) So we packed some pretty clothes and the most comfortable shoes we have and jumped on the train. Today we want to show you the first part of our lovely Paris trip, including some photos from Centre Pompidou. If you are in Paris any time soon, don't miss out on the "Surrealism and the object" exhibition there, it's fantastic! Tomorrow we will show you more Paris photos, so stay tuned! :)
Christmas is soon and Star Wars is happening 24/7 in our flat, so we decided to combine these things and make a little DIY. First of all we need to thank our reader Caro, who inspired us by showing us this website and their great Star Wars snowflakes. Our flat is super small (like most of the flats in London we guess), so instead of putting paper snowflakes on our petit windows, we decided to do candle coasters instead. All you need for the DIY is:
