Der Walzer

Two locations for today: the Opera Ball and the Hotel Imperial, both in Vienna. Women must wear floor-lenght gowns, hence why I created this look around a Dior floor-lenght gown. The rabbit fur jacket is there because the event takes place during the Carnival, which is in winter, so one needs to be warm when walking from the car to the interior of the Opera and vice-versa. The accessories and the shoes were chosen because I thought they complemented the dress perfectly.

Österreich

I decided to go for a sweet look for the capital of Austria, which seems to be quite a beautiful and amazing city. The collar is there to add a little sparkle to the dress and the jacket is in case it gets chilly. Don't worry, I don't think Europe is in general chilly, but when I went to Europe this summer, it wasn't the warmest. I suppose I'm unconsciously affected by that.

Così fan tutte

Today's location is a festival taking place in the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, hence the title of this post which is the title of one of Mozart's opera. I went for an elegant look that would be perfect to assist to one of the performances given in the evening, but might be a bit over the top for a matinee. I added a jacket in case it gets chilly in the evening even if the festival is held in July (the last week) and in August.

Kalt

As you can easily imagine, today's location inspired me to create a winter look. Just look at the picture at the top with an enormous quantity of snow. Gives me shivers just to see it. Even if these two towns are skiing location I did not create a skiing look. So I went for a fur coat (For PETA fans, vegans, vegetarians and anyone else who might be concerned: Get over it and go for fake fur and let others make their own choices) because it keeps you very warm. The boots are their for practicality as I do not recommend high-heeled boots where there is snow. One might slip and fall... and potentially break something. Looking fashionable is important, but not at the expense of one's health. 

So I also added tights and a hat to keep yourself warm. The dress is there to add a splash of color when you open up your coat when you are inside. I chose that handbag because it was dark and went with the rest of the outfit, but also because the colourful detail added another hint of colour to the outfit.

Die Alpen

Is there a more beautiful sight in the world than the alps? Today's location is a road that goes through those great mountains, so I went for another outdoorsy look, the top being the pop of color.

Bregenzer Festspiele

I went for a simple elegant look for this austrian festival famous for it's floating scene on the Bodensee, seen in both pictures. Even if the festival is in summer, I added a blazer because most shows are probably in the evening and it's always more chilly near a large body of water. The metallic shoes are to go with the season, as I felt black shoes would look too heavy for the summer season.
