daily inspiration

This weekend was great - the sun was shining constantly and it was really hot. I spent most of my time outside by the lake side or by river side listening to music, hanging out with friends and family, eating lots of fruit and occasionally taking a swim. The time I spent inside I played Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii with my boyfriend, so much fun.
Then yesterday the Euro 08 finale took place and I went to the fanzone one last time. What a great night that was, the city was electric everybody was celebrating.
I've never seen the city so alive and buzzling as it has been now during the Euro, it was one big party almost every night. I hope all of your had a great weekend!

I recently got this skirt but so far I've only worn it once and in a rather unspectacular combination. This cute Swedish girl combined the skirt perfectly, making it look cool and laid back - like a rebel princess who ran off to become a rockstar ^o^ I might try something like this once the weather gets a bit cooler again. Right now I can't imagine wearing layers or something like a nylon skirt >.<

On another note, today the Haute Couture F/W 08.09 season starts in Paris. Today's highlights include Christian Dior and Giorgio Armani Privé, yay!

Outfit: out for dinner

On Firday night a friend of mine took me out for dinner to a very nice restaurant by the lake side. I used this opportunity to dress up a bit and finally wear my satin pumps that I got a while ago. I also wore this wonderful lace top which I got at H&M trend last week. It's gorgeous and extremly versatile. I will post more on my shopping trip from last week and that top later ^o^

The gown is smothered in a profusion of bows. Made of snow-white double-faced satin, the dress and its 2.75-meter-long train are adorned with a trellis work and 248 bows made of crepe georgette. The diamond-shaped trelliswork hides all the figure seams, and therefore the dress seems to be made of one piece.
