DW__Who is Michèle?
My name is Michèle, I'm a 21 year old fashion blogger based in beautiful Switzerland. In my daily live I'm working as a graphic designer in an ad agency.
I started in 2010 but I would say I really started to do it seriously and almost professionally only since autmun 2012 when I worked out a whole concept for it and gave it a new face with a fresh, new and modern design. Really tooks me a lot of time to teach myself programming a website. The layout was no problem, but had a lot to learn about all the complicated HTML stuff.
My blog is obviously a fashion blog which gives an insight in my love and my taste of fashion. Every other day, I'm adding a new post which is mostly an outfit post of what I'm wearing everyday. I place value on the price of the clothes which means I don't want to wear designer pieces only. I want to inspire the girls out there with a low budget just like me in the beginning! You don't have to waste thousands of dollars for designer clothes to look stunning! Often it's the mix which makes it out so I like to combine some low budget pieces from H&M for example with some designer pieces like a Chanel bag or Louboutin heels.
Fashion is always in move and it's like a game which you can start everyday anew and never go "game over" !
Actually I must admit I don't really know a lot about earlier fashion periods. I'm living the present and the future!
I find it astonishing how the fashion scene has changed over the past years. At the beginning there were only a few bloggers (these which are now very popular just like Chiara Ferragni!) and the whole blogger business was quite unknown. Over the last 2 years this has changed into the complete opposite: Almost everybody has its own blog and those which were the first bloggers are famous like actors or singers! So why are bloggers getting so big over the years: Well, bloggers are people like you and me, they're authentic, they're real! On a blogger, which is not as skinny as a runway model, we really can imagine how clothes look on normal figured girls! Furthermore bloggers have a voice in fashion, they're not only clothes hangers – resumed: Bloggers are probably the most important part in the fashion world!

I mostly get inspired through the www. Namely by bloggers or fashion week streetstyle pictures.
All the blogs in the web. I'm always happy like a little girl getting a lollipop when I find a new one which I like (what is actually very rare)!
I love casual looks mixed with elegant pieces. For example a well fitted jeans combined with a shirt, blazer and tie or bow tie. But actually I don't really care about what my partner wears. He just shouldn't try to change my style ;)
Phillip Lim 3.1 Pashli in white or better a Celine one? hmmm....
Most Swiss would probably talk about the mountains and the snow and skiing when they get asked this question. But I must admit that I hate hate hate snow and everything that goes with it! So the perfect day is for me in summer, sleeping out, getting awake by the birds. Then getting out for brunch at the lake, taking a walk with my love, going swimming and shopping afterwards and enjoying dinner in my favorite restaurant called Hiltl, which is a delicious vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Zurich. The speciall thing about is, that it turns into a club at 11 o'clock. I find that such a great concept.
