WAVES VIENNA: DAY 1

wow, wow, wow. yesterday: seriously one of the best nights ever. i had quite high expectations for waves but they were even exceeded. first, we went on a ride with the incredible heineken music train. even though there weren't too many people when we first got in, we had such a blast. the trains that we ride everyday transformed into a party tram! so cool! and then WHEN SAINTS GO MACHINE at flex...woah. i can't describe what kind of music they make, it's just the most unique thing ever. after we went on another ride with the music train and ended up at badeschiff, where we stayed a little, hung out by the water and had some beer. tonight i will go and see CITY AND COLOUR at WUK, which i can not wait for. saturday some more waves action and many more things coming up. stay tuned :)

 
thanks to christian for taking some photos of us!

diy: collar tips

so i've seen collar tips everywhere lately. i think they look so cool and since i'm a big fan of any kind of metal application, i knew i needed something like it. they sell collar tips at ASOS but i think 12 € for those is a little much... i realized it is really, really easy to do collar tips like that yourself. i just got book corners which are reeeeeally cheap (i paid 0.80 € for four pieces) and just hammered them on the collar tips of this monki jeans shirt. done.

backyard-store

oh wow, so many things happening in vienna right now. very unusual for this town, that normally sleeps most of the time. anyway, after the successful backyard-sale concept there will be a temporary shop in vienna (kirchengasse 18). the amazing thing about BYS is the fact, that they offer second hand but also new designer pieces. check out their facebook page or website for more info and what you definitely have to do is: GO THERE AND CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF!

WAVES VIENNA

I am so excited for waves festival! 5 days – 12 stages – 80 acts! Finally Vienna has a cool festival to offer, especially in a time where most festivals anywhere else in the country are over. I also love the principle: the gigs take place in vienna's main clubs like the flex, fluc, pratersauna and badeschiff. my highlights are definitely totally enormous extinct dinosaurs and when saints go machine.

the prices are absolutely fair as well, so go and party! hard! more info on their facebook page or website.

IKEA WORKSHOP

last week i was invited to a stitching workshop by ikea. it all took place in one of the appartments, that present a new project called citycom2. there's 43 appartments that are all set up with 3 to 5 equally large rooms. so they're made for sharing! people can meet future room mates over facebook or move in with their friends. all the kitchens in those appartments are by ikea. so with loads of good food (cake pops by café schmid hansl!) and the new fabric designs by beckman's school of design we did some stitching and sewing. luckily the gebrüder stitch and their team were there to help. johanna, my instructor, was really patient (the photos show proof, i am as skilled with sewing as a 5 year old) and helped me create a wonderful detachable collar!
