the 18th district: November 2013

Sweaters, like the one I'm wearing in this post, are very en vogue this season again. I'm a fan of Brian Lichtenberg's ''HOMIÉS'', ''FÉLINE'' etc sweaters, but actually haven't bought one yet. At the moment you can find some cool sweaters inspired by Brian Lichtenberg's famous ones at Zara.
As I don't feel super comfortable in too sporty and casual looks, I decided to pimp up this casual sweater with my fur vest from WeLoveFurs, patterned pants and a huge pearl statement necklace to make this look more special.

For the latest issue of WOMAN magazine, Austria's leading magazine for women and lifestyle, I styled two different looks with pieces by H&M. 
Today I'd like to show you the first one, for this look I started off with a bodycon black pencil skirt, a black cropped top and black booties with transparent heels. 
Cropped tops in winter? WHY NOT?!- the super fluffy faux fur jacket keeps me warm and my kidneys healthy. To make the look more special I pimped it with this special statement necklace and the super cute cat ear hat ( which you can also find in this post ).

 Here in Austria, November is showing us his typical side - rainy, cold and windy. As I'm stuck in bed with a cold since Friday evening, I finally found some time to edit these pictures, which have already been taken a few weeks ago, when autumn was at its peek with all the wonderful colors and light, and  write a post.
On that wonderful day in October, I chose to rock my super cute & super fluffy new fur headphones from WeLoveFurs . (find two of my previous posts about We Love Furs here and here)
As you might have noticed already, I'm one of those girls who are not ''afraid'' to wear fur and adhere to this. Well, this is actually a fact, which the majority of my readers like and accept, but of course this topic is a very emotional and provocative one to some of you. You can read my opinion and thoughts about this topic at the end of this post. ***
Some fur companies nowadays think ''green'' and offer so called, green collections. 
WeLoveFurs is one of those and offers its ''GREEN COLLECTION''
 It's very important to them to use furs in the most eco-friendly and diligent way as possible. The ''GREEN COLLECTION'' represents maximum preservation of resources and sustainability within fur tailoring. For this collection they only use furs, which are by-products from the food industry and also carefully recycled furs. 

As you all know, I love unique and super cool accessories, like the fur headphones I'm wearing in this post. They are also part of WeLoveFurs' Green Collection and made of finest recycled fox fur. 
They definitely are the ultimate accessory for all fashionistas, who want to enjoy cool beats on the coldest days in the city or on the slope. 
They are handcrafted in Vienna by the master furrier ''FELL-MARCEL'', a limited edition and only available at 
WARNING : This fluffy and super warm music accessory is an eye-catcher, which definitely causes prying eyes! ;)

Here is my second outfit styled with pieces of the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection, which hits the stores on November 14th. 
For this look I chose the grey/white silk trousers, a loose white T-Shirt and again the embellished heels from the collection and combined it with a black A-line-cut black coat from my closet and very edgy Tom Ford sunglasses. I tried to reinterpret the Isabel Marant pour H&M campaign in these pictures and I've to say, I'm quite happy with the outcome. 
I love the puristic parisian style of Isabel Marant, which tells us, that it doesn't need much to look cool, stylish, feminine, not overstyled, but yet put together perfectly. 
Again, I'm in love with the trousers, they are so smooth and light, thanks to the silk fabric. 
How do you like the mix of Isabel Marant & Tom Ford ? - I love it ;)

As I promised you in my last post some special news about the ISABEL MARANT pour H&M collection will be revealed this week, well, here they are......
I proudly present you my favorite pieces of this wonderful special collection.
For my first look I chose one of the key pieces of this collection, the wonderful embellished trophy jacket and combined it with the super cool, yet sexy and feminine leather pants. The lace shirt I'm wearing definitely also is a highlight, just as the heels are. I can tell you guys, these leather pants are so comfortable and smooth, that I didn't want to slip them off again. 
I told you before, that I'm an avid fan of Isabel Marant and love here special Parisian bohemian aesthetic, the collection represents this special style perfectly. 
Are you going to storm the shop on the 14th when the collection lands in stores?

Some of us might have been crossing off the days on their calendars and now it's only less than two weeks away. No, it's not Christmas, it's the highly anticipated Isabel Marant pour H&M collection. I'm totally in love with this super cool special collection, which represents Isabel Marant's special Parisian bohemian aesthetic perfectly. 
Leather cropped trousers, an embellished trophy jacket, printed jeans, mannish outerwear, slouchy boots with fringed detailing and studded heels, the collection doesn't disappoint at all. Also don't forget to have a look at the men's collection, which definitely offers great pieces too. 
Normally cold sweat would appear on my forehead when thinking about the previous launches of H&M designer collaborations. First you have to queue for hours outside the stores in near darkness, then the ''tagging process'' starts (you get colored wristbands), before you are led into the special shopping area in the shop, where you are given around three minutes shopping time to grab your spoils. 
Wow, I'm so glad that I'm lucky enough to be invited to a Pre-Shopping event by H&M, which means, no queuing and no raging shopping madness. 
And even more news concerning this special Isabel Marant collection and THE18THDISTRICT will come up, which will be revealed next week. 
Can't wait to talk about this on Wednesday! 
Meanwhile, start making your wishlist now, before the collection lands in stores on the 14th of November. 
So, to help you, here are my personal top picks from the ladies-wear range.
