DEDas zweite Weihnachtsoutfit ist zwar wieder schwarz, aber doch nochmal was ganz anderes – ein bisschen schlichter und eleganter. :) Das hier ist übrigens mein allerliebstes schwarzes Kleid aus meiner Garderobe – ich habe es im Sommer bei Karen Millen gefunden, mich sofort verliebt und werde es nie wieder hergeben. Der Schnitt ist einfach perfekt, die transparenten Teile schön gesetzt und auch der dickere Stoff (mit leicht eingestanztem Hahnentrittmuster) ist sehr hochwertig und wunderschön. Definitiv “mein” Kleid. :)
Ich habe das Kleid bereits genauso kombiniert auf der “Curvy” zu einer Veranstaltung getragen, es allerdings nicht geschafft, es zu fotografieren. Weihnachten ist doch direkt mal ein perfekter Anlass dafür. Auch wenn das Kleid natürlich noch zu vielen anderen Situationen passt. Es ist definitiv immer tragbar. :) Mit den goldenen Sandalen und der dazu passenden Clutch aber natürlich besonders festlich. :)

Beim ersten Post habe ich ja schon angekündigt, dass dieser Raum mein liebster im → “The George” ist – die Bibliothek ist definitiv der am allerschönsten gestaltete Raum im Hotel. Das Highlight ist natürlich das Sofa (aus dem man auch ganz schwer wieder rauskommt!), aber auch die ozeanblauen Sessel und der Kamin machen die Library zu einem gemütlichen Ort, wenn es draußen in Hamburg mal wieder regnet. ;) Eine schöne Buchauswahl ist ebenfalls vorhanden und wenn der Raum nicht gerade für ein Shooting besetzt wird (hihi!), kann man dort sicher auch einige Stunden verbringen…

ENAlthough the second Christmas outfit is also black, it is something completely different – a little simpler and more elegant. :) Of all my black dresses, this is my absolute favorite – I found it at Karen Millen in summer, fell in love instantly and will hold on to it forever. The cut is just perfect, the transparent parts are used very nicely and the thicker fabric (with houndstooth pattern) is of very high quality and beautiful. Definitely my kind of dress. :)

I already wore it in this exact combination for a party at the “Curvy”, but didn’t manage to take photos of it unfortunately. Christmas now is the perfect occasion to do so, which doesn’t mean the dress wouldn’t fit lots of other situations. It’s an absolute all-rounder. :) But with the golden sandals and the matching clutch, it is especially festive, of course. :)

In my first post, I already announced that this room was my favorite – The George’s Library is definitely the most beautifully designed room of the hotel. The sofa (and it’s not that easy to get up from it again!) is clearly the room’s highlight, and – together with the ocean-blue armchairs and the fireplace – makes the Library a very cosy room, especially when it’s raining outside in Hamburg (and this happens quite often at the moment). The Library also offers a great selection of books, and if the room isn’t occupied because of a shooting (haha!), you can easily spend several hours there…
