FunkyForty Favourite Shops February’21 Update

Hi Everyone,

For those of you new to FunkyForty the Favourite shops page is a  concept set up last year to showcase special and favourite shops of mine.

Participating stores are updated each month. A monthly summary blog post will also be published highlighting new additions and seasonal highlights of existing stores.

The FunkyForty Favourite shops page came about in an effort to support small businesses during this difficult time. Going forward this will continue to be an easy and interesting way for you to discover new creations and stores.

FunkyForty Favourite Shops February’21 Update

NEW this month: La Tienda

So excited to be partnering with La Tienda a shop local to my neighbourhood with a super cute online store too.

My current love from the store are the new Spring dresses that have just come in:


Updates from existing Favourite Shops:
Golden Carrot Shoes

Golden Carrot shoes continues to have the most awesome Winter coat and boots sale…certainly worth checking out the online store here.


Caroline DeChamby

Note the red/pink bag I’m holding in picture, it’s from Caroline DeChamby – a wonderful artist based in Crans Montana. Check out her beautiful bags and paintings online here.

Another favourite bag from Caroline DeChamby pictured above.


Vanessa Martinelli

Moving along to my current silk pyjama love. Check out Vanessa Martinelli’s online store for the cutest collection of silk garments. Dress them up for out or wear at home. Not to forget her super cure matching jewellery.


Marcus Marienfeld

Marcus Marienfeld’s glasses that are completely handmade in Switzerland are super special. Te one place you can get bespoke glasses especially designed for you!

I am so in love with my carbon glasses – super light and the quality is truly something well above any glasses previously owned. See more information here.



Atelier Avanzar

Atelier Avanzar remains one of my Favourite shops. New adorable pastel bags are coming in for Spring so keep checking the website for updates. I love the fact that the bags are hand made in Ecuador. Every bag bought helps to educate women in need and sick children in Ecuador.

New 15% off with discount code FUNKYFORTYFRIENDS

Check out the website here.



At a time when there is so much uncertainty around the pandemic and the weather is cold with plenty of grey days it’s more important than ever to help your body with good quality supplements.

Formetta, created by Australian born Vanessa, is truly the best collagen supplement you can buy on the market. She designed it for herself so that is almost proof enough – however read more here

Suenia Zurich

The hot tip with Valentines day coming up would have to be Suenia Zurich jewellery. Such a cute brand set up by two Spanish sisters. Why not buy a little piece for your bestie for Valentines day – smile! Check out the online shop here.


Orlando Maroquinier

I already mentioned in my previous blog post that everyone needs a blue bag – smile. Orlando Maroquinier has the absolute best in Zurich. Not only can you hand pick the leather your bag is made from, you can also have it made especially according to your own design.

I have the above bag in mint blue and love wearing it with winter white. Check out the online store for premed bags too.


That’s it for February. Stay tuned for more and new shops in March!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. You have such wonderful local shops, Yvonne! Where I am, it’s all the usual ‘high street’ stores. I really miss going away and doing a spot of shopping!
