My greatest experience was in Paris, where I found a large room, clean, very bright, free WiFi and just a short walk to metro station.

Finally, here is another outfit shot by Stephan Bauer, who did a great job by photographing beautiful Gon silk dresses in pastel and black and white. Before talking about my outfit, I have to tell you from where this beautiful outfit is from. Since May 2015, Vienna has a new hip boutique address at Burggasse24, the PENG! Shop. The stylist Roman Globan, who is the founder of Peng! magazine and the Peng! shop, created a store as a platform for designers, creative professionals, artists and a tribute to the pop artist Allen Jones. The space was designed by the artist Milan Mladenovic, who collected a collage of six issues of the Peng! magazine designed and assembled from 90 different magazine pages that have been recovered each 100 times. The stylist also opens his fashion archive of the last 15 years, with great pieces of Acne, Comme des Garcons, Givenchy, Maison Margiela, Dries van Noten, Damir Doma, Ann Demeulemeester and Rick Owens. The vintage single pieces can be purchased at very reasonable prices. Continue Reading…
