BEST OF 2015

MY 2015

Hi my lovelies,

I hope you all had wonderful and beloved Christmas days. I was so happy to catch up with my whole family and to finally see everyone again after a long time. Well, it’s already the last day of 2015! Actually I can’t believe what all happened in this one year. Time went so incredibly fast! But, I am also looking forward to a fresh start. Before we all open the new books of 2016 – this time with 366 pages – I want to share with you a little throwback of my highlights of this last year.

So many things happened. I don’t know where to begin. I think one of my favorite moments this year was when I graduated from college. It was on a very hot day in summer and I celebrated with my whole family and my best friends. On that day I was wearing a pink dress from Sandro. I loved it! It was bright, striking and just perfect for this special day. 🙂

So, after I graduated I finally had time to start with something I had always wanted to – I set up my blog. Since July I have written 83 posts and I enjoyed every single one. It has been so much fun to share my thoughts with you guys and I feel so blessed with your lovely feedback! Those of you who have been reading my blog for a little time now also know that I don’t only wanna talk about fashion and trends. I think it’s so much more. Of course fashion is a big part in our lives but as long as you’re not happy with yourself you won’t look good even if you wear super trendy clothes. However, if you feel good you’ll also look fantastic – even in the most simple clothes. So, my first blogpost on carmitive was Add a little bit of Glitter. Here you can see a picture of this article which was about how to add a touch of glamour to an ordinary outfit.

I continued with writing blogposts and sharing with you the newest trends, my looks and my thoughts. I started to shoot with a very good friend and awesome photographer. We had so much fun to shoot together and we’ve had so many ideas for different projects. This is a shot of the first shooting I wrapped up with her this summer.

In my summer break I went to Davos, Switzerland. It was kind of strange to go there in summer because normally it’s a place I go to only in winter to go skiing. So, there was no snow at all but it was really nice to see the beautiful countryside a little bit different than usual. My favorite look of this trip was my Braidy Mountain Look which I shared with you in a post.

Another highlight this year was my stay in London. I attended a Fashion Design Course at the college of Central Saint Martins and it was absolutely amazing! I had a great time and met great people from all over the world. Of course I was also blogging about this stay in several posts. One picture of one of my London posts you can see here. I was having afternoon tea at the Wolseley – a must place to go when you’re in London!

After returning home from London I had time to concentrate even more on carmitive. I also went on a little trip to Milan and wrote two posts about places to go in this amazing city. This is a shot of my Milan Short Story.

Soon after that trip the fashion month started with the different fashion weeks all over the world. I did a lot of runway reports showing you my favorite moments. Here’s a collage of some amazing looks which were on the runway at the Paris Fashion Week.

In fall I did a lot of shootings which were all so much fun. In the meantime I went to Dubai and enjoyed some of my favorite holidays ever! Of course I shared with you all my tips and places to go in my post When in Dubai.

After my birthday in October I decided to give carmitive a makeover. I changed the logo a bit and created a new design. My first post on the new designed blog was all about New Beginnings.

I was so happy with the result of the makeover and I really appreciated the lovely feedback of you guys. Another great moment was in November at the release of the Balmain x H&M Collection. I could attend a pre-shopping event and I’m still so in love with the picks I got there. Here you can see one of the looks in which I was wearing a top from the awesome collection in my post Balmain Army.

Time went really fast and soon there was the end of November when I had the opportunity to wrap up an amazing shooting with a great photographer. I had so much fun and I shot several outfits. One of them you can see on the following picture of my post Turtleneck and Culottes.

Some weeks ago I had the honor of doing my first collaboration with piqyourdress. I had the possibility to shoot at an amazing place – the Rare Street Coffee. I have already showed you one part of this project in my post The little Black Dresses. The second edition you’re gonna see very soon – next year. 🙂

Well, unfortunately I can’t do a recap of every single post I wrote.  But I wanna show you some shots of some other articles of 2015 which you can see down below.

But I have to say the greatest highlight of 2015 I can’t really show you in pictures. It was when I started to work at a radio station for three months.  Unfortunately this time is already over now. I really can’t describe you in words how great it was! I could attend amazing events, I met super nice people and I just had an amazing time. Some experiences you can find in my  posts as well.

As you can see, so many amazing things happened in 2015 and the best thing is, I could share all these moments with you guys. I really hope that I can continue with carmitive and even reach more people all over the world. I have some great plans for 2016 and I am looking really forward to make this year a great one! I wish you all an amazing 2016 – may all your dreams come true. Don’t forget to make your miracle happen.

Thank you so much for your support guys and have a lovely rest of your day it’s gonna be the last one of 2015!

Happy New Year!

With love, Carmen ????
