50 years MARC O’POLO

50 years MARC O'POLO

I didn’t plan on leaving Paris for any reason during my one month stay in the city. But on the other hand, who can say no to a huge party that MARC O’POLO was throwing for its 50th years celebration in Munich. 50 years MARC O’POLO! What a great number to celebrate, right? (I wish my business will last that long as well ; ) )

50 years MARC O'POLO

The 50 years MARC O’POLO party was the official reason for my short trip to Germany. My love for the sophisticated simple design and chic style that distinguish Marcopolo’s garments was the reason that made me wake up at 06:30 on the 06th of July and fly from Paris to Munich.

Upon arrival in Munich, I was treated like a fashion blogger, although I am far away from fashion blogging. But I must admit… it was fun! The MARC O’POLO team organized an exclusive styling lounge with hair & make up artists, as well as stylists who helped me put an outfit together and got my hair and make up done. I chose to wear a green midi skirt with a black top and black high heels.

My make up artist was Tinka Luptakova. I asked for her name intentionally because she was so good with her work, and I would definitely recommend her to you in case you are looking for a make up artist in Munich.

The photos in this blog post were taken by my friend Katharina, who lives, studies, and works as a photographer in Munich. I was glad that Katharina was able to come visit me at the hotel.  She took my camera, and shot a couple of pictures for The Viennese Girl blog while I was getting ready.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos from the party that followed after. I decided to leave my camera in the hotel room, so that I can enjoy the party. You have to believe me, it was a blast!

Fendi finds a Home in Vienna

Fendi finds a Home in Vienna

Fendi, the Italian fashion brand that has been synonymous with luxury and elegance since its founding in Rome, has found a new home in Vienna, Austria.

This month, Fendi opened its first freestanding boutique in Vienna’s first district with an official inauguration ceremony and asked me if I would like to be part of it as a photographer.

It was a hard working day but I enjoyed every single moment of it. We began at 09:00 shooting with Carola Pojer from ViennaWedekind. At 12:00 we started shooting Vicky from Bikinis&Passports and Kathi from Ketchembunnies.

Our goal was to photograph the girls wearing pieces from the Resort 2017 Fendi collection with Vienna in the background. I had prepared ahead of time a list of the most photogenic places in the center of Vienna.

It’s not everyday that you get to photograph beautiful girls wearing beautiful stylish outfits. I look forward to many more opportunities like this one.

I can’t tell you enough how much I loved all the FENDI outfits we wore on that day. But mostly the iconic red and white skirt that I was wearing (ah, why can’t I dress up like this everyday?).

Fendi finds a Home in Vienna. The new Fendi boutique in Vienna is nothing short of extraordinary. The space is flooded with natural light, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The clean, white walls are adorned with intricate gold details. The furniture is modern and sleek, yet still inviting. And, of course, the clothes are to die for. In short, it’s the perfect place to shop for luxury goods.

Shopping in Vienna

Don’t get fooled by the pictures. I don’t go shopping at Gucci and Prada, unless it’s a special occasion, like a birthday or something. I usually do online shopping at home, with ease and comfort, especially when I am not in the mood of going out and mingling with the crowd and I personally avoid Saturdays, which automatically means long queues in the cash desk and fitting rooms. Some of the online shops I tend to shop at are Bonprix, Asos, Zara or Massimo Dutti.

When it comes to shopping in Vienna, some of the main shopping streets are Mariahilferstrasse, Neubaugasse, Kärntner Straße and of course the Golden Quarter which is a luxury shopping area in downtown Vienna. This is the area where you can find international designer labels but keep in mind that there are also many other interesting shops and boutiques in the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th districts, maybe not that well-known but still you might find pieces that you will love.

Summer is just around the corner and I feel like my garderobe needs a total makeover. To be more precise, I actually feel the need to give away all my clothes (or throw them from the window 🙂 ) and buy some new, fresh pieces. You see, it comes the day when you want to get rid of everything old.

My advice: better fewer but beautiful, than too many and useless. Buy fewer pieces, yet more precious. Always remember to prefer quality over quantity. ♥

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case?

What is in my beauty case? – I received one email and I was asked about the make up products I use and I thought I should write about it. Well, I don’t like make up that much, I’d rather say I avoid it most of the times, especially when I have to wake up early, I don’t feel like putting a lot of make up on my face. And I believe in natural beauty…!

Nevertheless, I will tell you about some products I use:

As a day cream, I use the “Make a difference plus +” from Origins, every day after I clean my face. Breakfast and day cream go together. This cream keeps my skin soft and hydrated. I first bought this product in Manhattan and fortunately I can find it in Vienna as well.

I am quite pale, so I believe I need a little bit of color on my cheeks. For that purpose, I use the Crème de blush No 2 from Yves Saint Laurent.

Fortunately not all beauty products are expensive. My favorite Volum’ Express Mascara from Maybelline is friendly to our wallets.

And now I am going to reveal my favorite lipsticks….
The No 97 Incandescente from Chanel…so sexy, hot red, french and classy! And the “Im-Passioned” from MAC cosmetics. I love them both. Two more lipsticks that I like are from Yves Saint Laurent: Rouge Volupte No 13 and No 11.

This products fit my colors and skin perfectly, and that doesn’t mean they fit you as well. Try them before you buy them.

Thank you for asking and never forget that happy girls are the prettiest girls and that all you need is a spontaneous smile!♥
