i am not only lucky to be contributing to indie magazine and material girl every once in a while as a writer, but for the first time as a photographer. this is my very first editorial, shot for the winter issue of material girl. oh lord, holding this in my hands is just incredible.

shoes ZALANDO / hat & watch AMERICAN APPAREL / jewelery NEW ONE & SUBDUED / sweater & bag VINTAGE / gloves H&M
as you have read in this and this post i got these wonderful boots from zalando last week. they've been my all time favorite since then, since they boost my lazy outfits so much.
the lovely people from zalando also are hosting a give-away now, which you can find on their website. it's connected with their xmas song, which is a pretty hilarious re-interpretation by some of the people working there. you can win 2 x 200 € on the website, it's super easy. also you can win 50 € here on the blog, by leaving a comment until dec 20th. good luck, ho ho ho!

on december 4th i was walking through vienna's streets, watching the people. everyone was rushing from one shop to another, buying, buying and once more: buying. especially before christmas people go crazy considering consumerism. they buy loads of plastic dump that lands in the trash at some point anyway.
of course, this blog is about fashion i buy and other things strongly connected to materialistic things and consumerism. but i have been thinking a lot about REAL life needs lately and things that make me really happy. and i figured it isn't buying things. it is BEING rather than OWNING. of course sometimes you need to buy something in order to "be". like traveling: investing money but then EXPERIENCING something amazing over a longer period of time.
for me i am sick of those quick impulses that give me short-term satisfaction or "happiness". i am not willed to be fooled by fake desires. if you're sad a new pair of shoes won't change it and when you want to reward yourself a shopping tour also isn't the right reward. REAL needs and desires are different. i remember when i traveled in asia for four months and every day i had amazing experiences, that didn't cost a cent and that i still live off of.
i started asking myself: what do i REALLY want? what are my real desires? do i really want to spend all my money on stupid clothes all the time? that's why i have decided to stop shopping for the coming 3 months. i want to invest my money in things that are more important, start trading instead of buying and do more DIY. this is just a start, after i want to buy more consciously. i have loads and loads of clothes at my house, i keep selling so much and i still own shitloads. i want to have a small wardrobe, with a few pieces that i like and that i can wear over and over again. my dreamhouse is small, clean and definitely not crowded with loads of crap. i don't like the feeling to own masses of things i don't need.
you can't believe how free i already feel. just seeing something i like and knowing "well i can't buy it anyway, i promised not so shop" is such an incredible feeling of freedom and not feeling any pressure of "should i buy or should i not buy? will i really wear it?". of course i am in the lucky position of having companies that send me beautiful things and instead of buying more and more i will worship those small things.

this week has been like christmas already. both my romy messenger bag from tila march and then my cinti boots from zalando arrived at my house in vienna the day i came back from milan. i have been craving the boots for a while every since seeing them on a girl in my university in milan. the beautiful messenger bag that tila march sent me is probably the most beautiful bag that has ever been given to me. the leather, the workmanship, the color - it's a flair of paris in my arms.... oh romy, je t'aime.

bag, jacket and jumper VINTAGE (last two via USEABRAND) / trousers H&M / scarf MUJI / hat AMERICAN APPAREL / shoes ASOS / rings RANDOM OLD
the other day vicky invited victoria , some other friends and me for brunch at le meridien. i am not kidding when i say that i had about 6000 calories in those three hours and i enjoyed it oh so much. also because my super cute new jumper, that i found in the vintage section of useabrand, is so loose fitting that i could stick my belly out after those 20 plates of food. outfit-win.
