I took the Sunshine with me!


NYFW is always craaaaazy… It is the most stressful, yet most exciting season of the year… At least for me… 

As a „new“ blogger to attend, I think it is even more exciting. Everything is new: new impressions on every corner, fashion shows, behind-the-scenes and so many new interesting contacts.And even if it is a lot of running around, it is a dream come true for me.

When I first opened my box from Folli Follie I literally felt like the sun is rising; revealing the beautiful bright yellow Twist Together Bag from their latest collection just made me smile. And it wasn’t the fact receiving a gift, but that pop of color brightening my hotel room on that cold grey New York Fashion Week morning – the Greek lifestyle fashion brand could not have made me more happy… So sweet.

With its gorgeous braided details at the sides, two short handles and a long shoulder strap, this piece with a great feel-good factor is an eye-catcher which instantly uplifts not only my mood but also the general style of my outfit I guess.

Instead of pairing it with a solid black or white or neutral look, as I would “normally” do, I went for more color this time. After all, it is Fashion Week, right? So I threw together a pair of distressed black JBrands and my favorite black leather chucks, adding a cool yellow loophole shirt from LaFayette… maybe not temperature appropriate-but perfect for the occasion.

And have you seen the yellow details on my burgundy jacket from Alexander Wang? That one is such a cool unique piece-I just love…

Absolute must have accessories of the day for the freezing weather at NYFW: a hat, or in my case a cashmere beenie and a warming coffee mug - It is all about being HOT. 😉 And ready I was for another exciting day at New York Fashion Week…

Actually, who said you cannot combine different tones of yellow?

When you are wondering if the weather in NY changed all of a sudden to … degree and real sun… No, it didn’t. But I could not help to carry out my new FolliFollie bag first thing while being back home in LA .

I found the Twist Together Bag to be the absolute perfect sunny companion to my beige and yellow outfit. I fell for this amazingly cosy cashmere & cotton jumpsuit from AKRIS with a matching beige-yellow striped blazer. Honestly I was a little insecure about the jumpsuit first-you never know how jumpsuit of this “heavy” material looks like once it is on you. But it is just such a comfortable, yet super stylish and chic piece. Definitely a good buy.

I went for neutral Christian Louboutin wedges and a mustard coat from Zara to complete my outfit. As for my bright shining bag, it remained the eye candy.

You know what I really like about Folli Follie? They made it their mission to unveil the sunny side of every woman throughout the world and bring to light the brightest, most positive and most attractive side of women. They did definitely unveiled mine with this beautiful bag. :) Thanks a lot!
