Monday Moodboard

Sangria and Misted Yellow are two of the Fall 2014 Pantone colours. I really like how this rich berry shade and the muted yellow look together, so I combined them in my moodboard today!
Sangria und Misted Yellow sind zwei der Pantone 2014 Herbstfarben. Ich finde dieser schöne beerenfarbene Ton und das sanfte Gelb passen gut zusammen und inspirierte mich zu meiner heutigen Collage!

Going, going, gone!

Good morning lovelies!          Guten Morgen, ihr Lieben!

As many of you know I've been selling my handmade sleepwear line Peridot on Etsy for a couple of years now. All of the pieces are designed and handmade by me, many of which are one-of-a-kind! I've had so much fun creating for this shop and truly appreciate all the positive feedback I received from lovely customers all over the world :) However, with the recent changes to the main page on Etsy, which will inevitably change the browsing/searching habits of potential customers and subsequently affect pageviews to my shop plus running a very busy fabric and supplies shoppe, I seem to have less and less time to concentrate on developing and stocking my line - hey, I'm a one-woman-show. So, after a lot of thought I've come up with a new strategy for Peridot and I'm currently in the process of giving it a complete make-over.
With this in mind I'm having a 50% OFF clearance sale until the end of this month! There are currently 19 pieces still left, sold on a first come, first serve basis. There will be no refund on sale items and sale price excludes shipping cost to your country of residence.
Thereafter I will work on revamping my shop and hopefully introducing my new range before the holiday season. Stay tuned for that! To all my loyal customers: HUGE THANKS for supporting my handmade business. You rock!

*dieser Post ist ausnahmsweise nur auf Englisch, da der Inhalt hauptsächlich an meine internationalen Kunden gerichtet ist. Vielen Dank für Euer Verständnis :) Selbstverständlich gilt der SALE auch für alle in DE/A/CH!!!

Fall '14 ~ Houndstooth

Houndstooth or houndstooth checks originated in Scotland. This classic pattern, most popular in black and white has a long history in fashion. I still own my houndstooth check blazer from the 90s - maybe I should dust it off, seeing that this coming season houndstooth is back in a big way :)
Das Hahnentrittmuster stammt ursprünglich aus Schottland. Dieses klassische, in Schwarz/Weiß sehr beliebte Muster blickt auf eine lange Geschichte in der Mode zurück. Ganz hinten in meinem Kleiderschrank hängt ein Hahnentritt-Blazer aus den 90ern - vielleicht sollte ich ihn mal abstauben, da solche Teile in der kommenden Saison wieder "in" sind :)

Fall '14 Trend: Houndstooth

These days they come in different colours, in bold or subtle versions and combinations of large scale and micro prints. They have definitely become edgier this season, and never seem to go out of style! So, what are your thoughts on this pattern? Do you own a piece?
Heutzutage gibt es das Hahnentrittmuster, welches scheinbar nie aus der Mode kommt, in verschiedenen Farben, Größen und Kombinationen, und auf jeden Fall ausgefallener als damals! Wie findet Ihr dieses Muster? Habt Ihr auch noch ein alten Blazer im Schrank hängen?

Monday Moodboard

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the pink/red palette from blush pink to wine red! Especially in Fall season I'm drawn to the rich shades of fuchsia, cherry red and burgundy. The last one in particular goes so well with gold accents. So that's my theme for today's moodboard!
Es ist kein Geheimnis, dass ich großer Fan der rosa-roten Farbpalette bin! Besonders im Herbst trage ich gern satte Farben wie Fuchsia, Kirsch- und Burgunderrot. Die Letztere, finde ich, passt gut mit Gold. Diese Kombi habe ich als Thema für meine MontagsCollage gewählt!

About three years ago I came across the Etsy shop Pulp Sushi and fell in love with this cherry red necklace handmade by shop owner Marilyn. Since it fits today's theme I wanted to share it with you!
For circa drei Jahren habe ich den Etsy Shop Pulp Sushi entdeckt, und mich sofort in diese kirschrote Kette - von Marilyn handgefertigt - verliebt. Sie passt so gut zum heutigen Thema!

Happy Monday!
