My style – OOTD: My today’s look: Fée Dragée. I was born in cologne in germany where carnival is as important for the people living there as the ‘Oktoberfest’ for the bavarian people living in the south of germany. During my childhood I really loved to celebrate carnival in cologne! Now I live in munich in the south of germany and for the last many many years I never felt like going back to cologne to celebrate carnival again.

The 11th of november officially is the start of the carnival season in cologne. But the big party is in february. My mum told me that she is invited to celebrate the start of this year’s carnival season on the 11th of november exactly the time I decided to visit my mum. So I decided to go there too. There’s no party without a costume! As a child my costumes for carnival always have been more masculine like clown, american indian, cat and more. I looked at the cute pink fairy wand for putting powder sugar on cakes in a cute way, a present my little sister made me for birthday this year. And there it is! My idea for a carnival costume! Fée Dragée, which means Sugar Plum Fairy, a role in the ballet ‘Nutcracker Suite’ by Tschaikowsky, one of my favorite ballet stories and a piano piece I always loved to play on my own! I bought a pink tulle midi skirt by Zara just about one month ago. That is a cool mean part of my costume. I combined it with a light pink cut-out shirt by Tally Weijl and white stockings. I put some pink candies on a pink necklace and also on my white Nike sneakers. A huge pink yellow sugar bar made the pendant of my sweets necklace. To look completely different I wear a pink straight long hair wig and a diadem on top, typical for Fée Dragée. My make-up is a bit more pink and shiny as usual and is decorated with some silver glitter. I love it!! 🙂 Carnival wasn’t that funny than I expected because it’s better to celebrate it in february when everybody does it in cologne. But anyways – I loved my different look! Good night, lovelies! It’s bedtime!
