New In

As you can see I did a bit of shopping. Oh yes I know I am slightly addicted to peplum shirts, but I think they are very flattering for almost every figure and body type and they are cute. It's not that bad I only own three so nothing too out of control. Sadly the photo with the bordeaux red shirt is super bright so you can't really see the true color. I found this silver necklace today and I think its so cool, it kind of looks like something kids would play with. And I finally found this snake print clutch at H&M, I have been wanting to buy it for such a long time but never did. Had my first day of work today which was a lot of fun :)

Poofy Cloud

Today I checked out apartments with a friend of mine and went for coffee with my mom and grandma! My mom did some shopping at the Cos store in Vienna that just opened. She found some beautiful pieces that I'm gonna show you soon - since I plan on stealing them at least for a day :) After that I went to an amazing turkish restaurant called Kent with my boyfriend and we had some yummie food! I love this Zara sweater although I kind of look like a poofy cloud in it. I also realized that I stopped wearing long necklaces. I almost only wear short statement pieces now, since I think they just make every outfit so much cooler. And how cute is that bag? I borrowed it from my roommate - I love the little compartments! 

Also you should check out James' new promo video (here)! He is opening for Left Boy on the 4th of October, and if you live in the Vienna area you will be happy to know that you can win tickets for that show!! Just watch the Video, everything is explained there :)

Weekend At Home

So since I didn't feel too great the last couple weeks I spent this weekend at my mom's house. It's always nice when you are not feeling well to spend some time with family, have people buzzing around, and of course not have to cook or clean :) I thought since I'm wearing sweatpants all day I'd just share some pictures of the house - my mom loves decorating and has a cute taste in furniture. Yesterday I grabbed some food with my brother and took pictures of his outfit, so this post will at least contain some guy-fashion :)

Bridge

I'm gonna stop apologizing for not posting recently and just explain why I didn't do it. The past few weeks I had some personal things going on involving health stuff, so I had no time and to be honest was just too distracted. Today I'm sharing an outfit which might not be super special but very wearable, and also share this beautiful setting! We walked past the cutest little bridge, and the sunlight was just perfect, so I did some posing in the woods :) Hope you are all well and having a nice weekend, I promise to be more consistent as I start to recover!

DWH Store Opening

Last week my mom and I went to the DWH Store opening in Vienna! The beautifully designed concept store is at a great location on Gumpendorferstra├če. All the clothes are by Austrian designers, and in addition to very innovative pieces the store also offers a bunch of accessories. You can find almost everything from necklaces to super cute phone cases. I especially loved the handmade knitwear and unique jewelry. If you live in Vienna you should definitely check it out, you can't miss the cute display windows! :)

New In, Horses and Flea Market

I'm so sorry I didn't post anything this week! The organization of the flea market was harder than I thought and packing up all my stuff took a lot of time too. But I am very happy with how the flea market worked out. So many people came and really liked it! I sold a bunch of stuff, but there is a lot left so I'm definitely organizing it again in the next 4 weeks. I didn't really take pictures since I had to sell all day, but you can check out more on instagram (@tcompass)!

Earlier this week my boyfriend (James) and I went to the number one show jumping tournament here in Vienna and got to see beautiful horses and an amazing show! If you wanna know more about it and see some more pictures then check out James' blog (here).  

As you can see I did a bit of shopping and found an amazing Vintage Jil Sander sweater that I am in love with. Finally also hopped on the camo jacket wagon and found some other nice pieces! I have so many photos and stuff to share with you guys from the past week, so there is definitely gonna be a new post tomorrow! :)

Bizarre Mannequins

Today I had my job interview and I think it went pretty well. On our way we saw such bizarre mannequins that we had to stop and take pictures of them. They had this weird 90s lipliner thing going on, the strangest eye makeup, and the best part was the piercings! The whole thing was ridiculous, I had to laugh so hard. I didn't take pictures of the clothes, that was just too much. The store is one of those "middle-aged-women-with-no-time-for-taste" shops. I don't get how these people think those mannequins are cool, they don't go with the clothes at all. On the other hand I also wouldn't know how to style those freaky dolls.

So when I came home I googled "bizarre mannequins" just to see if there are more crazy ones, and I found some! The weirdest thing is I've walked by that store so many times and never noticed them 'til my boyfriend pointed them out today. Don't ask me why I dedicated a whole blog post to these dummies, I just thought the world should know haha…

Also if any one of you lives in the Vienna area I'm organizing a flea market at Cafe Europa in the 7th district this Sunday the 23rd starting at 12am. We are gonna sell clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, books and more nice stuff! You should definitely swing by if you can, and if you have stuff that you'd like to sell you can write me an email (tcompassblog@gmail.com)!

Red Fly

Today we went to grab sandwiches at Maschu Maschu, which is a popular oriental food place famous for their falafel! I am in love with this dress. I think it's really cute and it was only 20€ at F21! I don't know why but I'm kinda obsessed with wearing red at the moment. I used to absolutely hate it and thought it always looked kind of cheap on me, but for some reason I'm loving it now! I finally found the perfect round sunglasses at We Bandits, the only problem is that I just don't have a glasses face, hence the name of the blog post :) It started getting dark very fast so I apologize for the light weirdness!

And no I didn't get ombre hair, I have no clue why it looks like it on the photo. I have been thinking about dying them since 2 years now, but I still never got around to it, and anyway everyone has dip dye hair now so maybe you are kind of special if your hair only has one color, right? :)
