The Rebel Inside Us

Hi Everyone,

We all have that little rebel inside us and everyone likes to show it in their own special way. Those are the days where you simply don’t feel like conforming to the norm. For me I like to try out a totally different look – put a little more funk into that every day style. My hubby always calls it my “NZ style” because it doesn’t conform to his Swiss taste – hehe!

Today’s rebel look is a favourite of mine – especially the logo on the top!

The Rebel Inside Us


“Never Grow Up” – great isn’t it. I mean who really wants to ever grow up???

Think I could dance all day in this floaty skirt and booties…

Decided I needed this little clutch for when I go away – the perfect evening bag or bag for breakfast. The ring is made by a super cute friend of mine (details at end of post). The first day I wore it another friend saw it and instantly ordered hers online – I was lucky she didn’t simply take mine off me – thank goodness for different ring sizes! We are now joking that we have friendship rings.

The booties are a favourite NZ designer Andrea Moore – details at end of pst and don’t forget special discount code. Andrea ships worldwide so it doesn’t matter where you live. Originally they were meant to go with a lovely dress (see details here), but I love wearing them with all sorts of things.



Outfit Details:
  • Top Skirt and Clutch – ba&sh
  • Booties and Sunglasses – Andrea Moore (international shipping &  special discount code “FUNKY10”), plus just saw boots on sale now, might get a second pair!!!
  • Ring – Atelier McDaniel (check out her super cute interior stuff too)

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. very true who wants to grow up, from time to time is it also very nice to be young at heart love that xxx

  2. I know the rebel inside me. The one that lifts it middle finger haha. Never kill that rebel. You look not only NZ but also NY. And yes hubby’s taste is sometimes different. When I am already not sure, a negative comment from him and the garment is gone. But when I love a piece, I write it off as difference in taste.

  3. I didn’t realize you are from New Zealand. We’ve visited twice for several weeks at a time… it’s a long way from Canada. We love it there! Loved everywhere we went from busy Auckland, to sleepy Raglan, and everywhere in between:) And Napier… sigh…don’t get me started on Napier! Dropping by from #iwillwearwhatilike.

  4. Great Website with some special offers. Unfortunable it is just in english. Not everybody in Zürich who is looking for some “Cocktailkleider” is speaking this. But the great pictures need no langauages
