VIAKORO and Degussa in the Sun – Dominicana Moda 2017

VIAKORO and Degussa in the Sun – Dominicana Moda 2017 1800 1200 Galia Brener

Finally the big day has arrived! It was time to jet off to Santo Domingo for the long-awaited Dominicana Moda, the fashion week of the Dominican Republic. As I closed my eyes and thought about the palm trees swaying in the soft warm wind, it was clear to me that this journey will be the perfect place to photograph and show my beloved VIAKORO jewelry in 750 yellow gold and 925 silver. As we landed and got off the plane, the intense heat wave kissed my face. I heard the jewellry and dresses in my suitcase calling my name, just as happy as I was for the Dominicana Moda to finally start!

Take a look at the full collection here:



VIAKORO Collection Nr. 1: FLORO in 750 yellow gold

The Look: Beach Angel

Even though my complexion is quite pale and I never go under the sun, I always love wearing white in the summer – especially on the beach and poolside. This has always been my style rule for as long as I can remember. White and colors in the summer, while opting for black in the winter.

On the first day, I wore my Ibiza-inspired short white cold-shoulder dress with colorful flower embroidery. Liking to emphasize my waistline, I tied my vintage wine-colored suede belt around it. I call this the beach angel look because of the flowing white ruffles around the shoulders and the colorful accents, reflecting the flowers and nature.

I polished off the look with the VIAKORO FLORO collection – panassia bracelet, trillium necklace and earrings in 750 yellow gold. The FLORO collection was a perfect match to the floral designs on the dress and also the amazing colorful flowers in the resort. This look was perfect to combine with my new blue / gold sunglasses and my special edition gBag in lilac metal python.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 2: STELO in 925 silver

The Look: Yellow Glam

The first evening out called for a glamorous look. I have tried to avoid the horrendous yellow color my entire life, until TK Maxx and this trip opened my eyes! As I skeptically packed this marvelous yellow creation, I wasn’t sure how it would match my personal style. As I left my hotel room and stepped out into the glowing evening sun, I instantly fell in love with yellow after all these years! My shock was huge. The Yellow Glam is officially my new acquired style since today. This Dominicana Moda adventure got better by the day, because little did I except to fall in love with my most hated color. I adore such long and flowing maxi dresses, making one instantly feel like the glamorous queen of the night.

This elegant dress is decorated with silver stones on the front, making it a perfect match for the VIAKORO STELO collection – polaris necklace and gravity earrings in 925 silver. The Viva Wyndham has a very unique bar area with colorful hand-painted ceramic tiles decorating both the floor and walls. This matched the yellow silk to perfection and I felt like Alice in Wonderland, floating into another world, while holding onto my nature python gBag.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 3: VECO in 750 yellow gold

The Look: Hippie Chic

Elegant and légère. I especially picked this dress out because it’s shorter in the front and longer in the back, making it great for both day and night time – casual meets chic. I love this short / long style because one can see the shoes and legs quite well in the front, while the back part of the dress sways elegantly on the floor. I also adore the little coins decorating the fringe of the dress, giving it the sensual gypsy touch and making a soft chiming sound as I walk.

This dress represents my style well because I have been in love with the tie-dye effect ever since I was a child. I found the love for this style by looking at my parent’s old hippie photos. Throughout the years, the tie-dye pattern has really shaped my personal style.

The VIAKORO VECO collection – aurora set in 750 yellow gold was perfect for this look because the word Aurora has a direct correlation to the sun! Good things are never a coincidence. I combined this with my new gBag collection in nature python, perfectly matching the warm Caribbean sun. I wore my hair up in a large high bun, complementing the elegant summer hippie look.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 4: TRANCO in 750 yellow gold

The Look: Retro Dreams

This casual creation is perfect for the lounging resort look, because it can be worn with flats or dressed up with sexy high heels. This mirrors my style very well because I absolutely adore maxi dresses. I find them to be elegantly timeless. The print has a tie-dyed touch to it, adding onto the warm retro effect. I adore the long slit on the front, making it perfect to show off legs and curves. The cold-shoulder cut gives it the sensual yet nonchalant look.

I found my personal style many years ago in combining two of my favorite things: a maxi dress with a leather jacket. Even if I go to a very fancy event, I will definitely wear my favorite tight leather jacket with my long dress, instead of a blazer or fancier coat. I have been doing this for ages, and that will never change. This gives the long dress a rock-chic look, making it very seductive and a bit dangerous.

I accessorized this look with the VIAKORO TRANCO collection in 750 yellow gold. I decided to wear the complete krado set for the ultimate chic look, and combined it with round golden sunglasses and the gBag in black python.

Karl Lagerfeld Opening Event in Frankfurt

Karl Lagerfeld Opening Event in Frankfurt 1080 530 Galia Brener

Wednesday night was the long awaited opening event of the Karl Lagerfeld store in Frankfurt. I spoke to a few friends this week and everyone was very excited to come out and play. Not only was the new collection on display, but also original sketches drawn by Mr. Lagerfeld himself, decorated the walls of the store. It was a mixture of his famous fashion sketches along with drawings of himself, portraits and other models. It was very interesting to be so up close and person with his private works of art!

As we made our way into the store, we were greeted by Daniel Tobias Etzel of the WAOH agency, who did another fabulous job at bringing all of Frankfurt’s Who’s Who together and organizing such a glamorous event! I was excited to see some friends and acquaintances, which I haven’t seen in a while, and catch up about life, hanging out in the midst of the exciting flair. There were camera flashes going off in every corner of the store. The crowd was excited, enjoying the high of the bubbly champagne, beautiful handbags and crazy outfits!

I was pondering what to wear already weeks in advance. At the moment I’m having my blue period, like my wonderful idol Picasso. Blue is not my mood, but rather the shades of my current outfits. From blue bags to blue nail polish and blue dresses. Therefore naturally, I had to wear blue for the opening!

Knowing that Lagerfeld’s beloved color is black, going a completely different shade was not such a bad idea. Since I’m a cartoon nerd, I had to wear my new Japanese manga skirt. The extravagant blue silk design has various gold ancient God images all around the skirt. I fell in love with this unique piece as soon as I saw it in the store. What’s good enough for a leading manga character is good enough for me! To get the desired full puffy effect, I wore my largest petticoat underneath the skirt. I topped it off with a ribbed tank top of the same blue shade and a blue velvet bolero, to give the outfit a bit of a baroque touch. I needed a bit more “Bam”, so I work my little black rose hat and my vintage 50s gold purse. My feet were clad in my beloved platforms. Karl Lagerfeld has many cartoon characters on his accessories, so even thought the outfit was blue and not black, it still fit very well into the concept of the evening.

As we walked into the back of the room, we were handed a cold glass of champagne and macaroons, with Karl’s profile printed on top. What a chic and glamorous idea! The beautiful redhead Janet Maier and Ria were spinning their awesome house beats, adding some bass and funky sound to the fashion party. The attention was on them, as they spread the love. I must admit that the guests really made a great effort with their cool outfits, funky accessories and big statements! Many celebs were there, including my girl Sabrina Setlur, looking stylish and fabulous in her black sleek Lagerfeld dress.

I was walking around the store and taking photos, admiring the people around me, having fun and listening to the happy chatter. Many people were impressed by the event, saying that the Lagerfeld store is definitely an enrichment for Frankfurt and the Goethestrasse. I have to agree with them! I was also very impressed by the prices, making it affordable for everyone to find something that they love in the store.

Even thought Mercury Retrograde has started this week, I couldn’t help but notice the electric energy and smiles thrown around the bright store. I am happy to share with you my dears that yet again, another glamorous event was gloriously celebrated in my beloved Frankfurt. As the last glass of champagne was drunk, it was time to move on and indulge in a nice calorie-rich dinner. The girls were all hungry and calling my name. As I left the store, I turned around and glanced behind me, knowing that I will come back very soon indeed. Dear Karl, you are definitely more than welcomed to our little city with a big attitude!































Tartan Love

Tartan Love 1080 530 Galia Brener

Ever since I was a child, I have felt a strange connection and pull to the tartan pattern. As an adult, I have spent many nights fantasizing of a past life, where I was a Scottish princess, wearing a beautiful tartan gown and dancing the night away with a strong, masculine Scottish warrior. Unfortunately I always wake up as the fun part stars, when he begins to readjust his kilt… You now understand why this dream is so tempting – what does the warrior wear underneath his kilt?

Now back to reality, this spring / summer 2016 will see a lot of this fantastic pattern! Vivienne Westwood, one of my favorite designers, featured tartan in her SS16 collection. Everything from dresses, bags and even tartan sunglasses!

Many other designers have worked with tartan, such as Burberry, Alexander McQueen, dsquared2, Gucci, and yes, even Chanel! This is a timeless pattern that is beloved by many. It shows class, style, heritage and tradition.

Growing up in the 80s and 90s, I had many pieces with tartan and loved wearing them, while admiring my punk neighbors’ wild lifestyle. This pattern is very adaptable. It can be combined with many different looks. In the photo shooting below, you will see that I combined it with 3 different styles. It can also be worn as a 1-piece dress to the office or on a night out in the town, topped off with black high heels. You can wear tartan to meet your parents-in-law, or go to a punk concert. It is one of the most versatile patterns of our fashion history!

The tartan pattern has a long royal Scottish history behind it. In 1471, the treasurer to King James III purchased tartan cloth for the king and queen. King James V wore tartan whilst hunting in the Highlands in 1538, and King Charles II wore a ribbon of tartan on his coat at his wedding in 1662.1

Tartan leggings were found on the 198 cm handsome “Cherchen Man”, a 3,000-year-old mummy found in the Taklamakan Desert2. Looks like I am not the only one obsessed with my tartan leggings! The Cherchen Man was obviously a very stylish and modern man, back in his dessert days.

What’s good for royalty is also good for us! So my dears, go out there are get yourself some tartan love!

And for my single ladies, even thought the handsome giants are dead for already 3,000 years, at least we still have our tartans to enjoy this summer! ;-)

Have a lovely Wednesday!

Kaufrausch bei TK Maxx!

Kaufrausch bei TK Maxx! 1080 530 Galia Brener

Endlich war es Donnerstag – der mit Spannung erwartete Tag der großen Designer-Shopping-Lieferung bei TK Maxx. Ich wusste zwar nicht genau was uns erwartet, aber als wir heute früh im Frankfurter TK Maxx ankamen war klar, dass das ein super Tag wird.

Eigentlich bräuchte ich gar nicht erwähnen, dass unsere Erwartungen mehr als nur übertroffen wurden.

An den Regalen hingen endlose Reihen mit Designer-Konfektionen, die darauf warteten abgehängt, anprobiert, nach Hause genommen und geliebt zu werden! Wir Mädels stürzten sofort auf verschiedenen Wegen los und häuften die erbeuteten Schätze in unsere Einkaufswägelchen.

Da wir bereits eine Stunde vor der offiziellen Ladenöffnung eingeladen wurden war zunächst außer uns niemand jemand da. Das reichte aber schon völlig aus um sofort ein lautes, begeistertes, glückliches Shopping-Chaos auszulösen. Schnäppchenjagd hat irgendetwas an sich, das den Blutdruck hochjagt und Adrenalinschübe auslöst!

Die außergewöhnliche Freundlichkeit des TK Maxx Personals hat mich sehr angenehm beeindruckt. Alle waren gerne bereit uns mit Größen, Farben, verschiedenen Modellen und allgemeinen Fragen weiter zu helfen. Obwohl wir schon so früh da waren begrüßten sie uns mit einem freundlichen Lächeln und waren voller Begeisterung in jeder Art und Weise behilflich. Applaus für ein so großartiges Team!

Wir brauchten volle zwei Stunden um die erste Etage komplett nach Klamotten zu durchkämmen und dabei hatten wir es noch nicht einmal zu den Schuhen im Obergeschoss geschafft! Da ich kleine Füße habe war dann doch noch einiges in Größe 37s für mich übrig. Eine Freundin überraschte mich in einem Moment als ich gerade unter all den Schuhen mitten im Durchgang begraben war. Sie musste derart heftig lachen, dass sie auf mich und den Schuhstapel fiel! Klarer Fall: unser Shopping-Tag war spaßig und voller Abwechslung. Ein herrlich fröhliches Erlebnis unter guten Freunden!

Es gab viele Designer- und Top-Markenartikel zur Auswahl. Dazu viele großartige Dinge für die Bereiche Home, Haustiere und Kinder. Ich war so wunschlos glücklich, alle diese verschiedenen Outfits vom ultra Roter-Teppich-Chic bis hin zum lässigen Casual-City-Style anprobieren zu können. Es gibt wirklich für jeden etwas bei TK Maxx! Dabei ist die Qualität der Stücke sehr gut und die Kollektionen sind up to date.

Bis die neue Saison beginnt werden noch jede weitere Woche neue Designer-Lieferungen eintreffen. Also, schnappe dir eine Freundin und gehe hin bevor alles weg ist!

Hier sind einige Schnappschüsse von schönen Outfits, die ich für mich herausgesucht habe. Ich bin gespannt auf eure Meinung!

Viel Spaß beim Einkaufen!


Herzliche Grüße,

eure Gali

Shopping Excitement at the TK Maxx in Frankfurt!


Thursday has finally arrived and with it came the TK Maxx shopping excitement as well! I was not sure what to expect, but when we arrived in the morning, we knew that this would be a fun and happy day.

Needless to say that it was everything that we expected and more! There were rows after rows of designer clothing hanging on the racks – waiting to be picked up, tried on and adopted to take home and love! Us girls ran our separate ways to start filling our shopping carts with treasures. Since we were invited one hour earlier than the official store opening hours, there were only a few of us in the store, but it was enough to create a loud excited, happy, shopping chaos. There is something about bargain hunting that makes the blood boil and the adrenalin run wild!

I was very pleased to see that the TK Maxx staff is extremely friendly. They were very willing to help out with sizes, colors, models and any general questions. Even though we arrived so early, they greeted us with a warm smile and a happy enthusiasm, always willing to help. The staff was very well informed about all of the items available in the store, and were happy to assist in any way needed. Bravo to such a great team!

It took us 2 hours to completely go through all of the clothing on the first floor, and that was even without the shoes, which were upstairs! I have small feet, so there were many size 37s leftover for me. At one point, one of my friends came over and found me buried underneath all of the shoes in the middle of the isle! She was laughing to hard that she fell on top of me and the pile of shoes! Needless to say, our shopping day was very funny and enjoyable! A really fun and lovely experience to have with good friends!

There were many designer and top brand items to choose from. Many great things for the house, pets and children as well. I was happy to try on many different outfits ranging from ultra red carpet chic, to casual hanging out in the city style. There is really something for everyone at TK Maxx! I was also pleased to see that the quality of the clothing is very good, and the collections are up to date.

There are more designer deliveries coming in every week now before the new season starts. So grab a friend and get there before everything is gone!

Here are some behind-the-scene photos of nice outfits that I picked out for myself. Let me know what you think.

Have fun shopping!

Sending you a big hug,

Der heiße Shopping- Tipp: TK Maxx – ultimative Lieferung an Top Marken und Designer Labels diesen Donnerstag! 1080 530 Galia Brener

Liebe Freunde und Leser, ich bin so begeistert, dass mir die Worte fehlen!

Ein Vögelein hat mir unter Insidern gezwitschert, was am Donnerstag passieren wird.

Der 18. Februar wird ein toller Tag bei TK Maxx! Es wird eine umfangreiche Lieferung vielfältiger Designer-Artikel in allen deutschen Filialen eintreffen. Dieses Angebot wird Designer Labels für Damen, Herren, Kinder, Accessoires, -Schuhe, -Taschen und Wohn-Accessoires umfassen.

Ich weiß nicht, ob Sie bereits mit dem TK Maxx Store-Konzept vertraut sind, aber wenn Sie es nicht sind, dann ist dieser Donnerstag auf jeden Fall der perfekte Tag, um es herauszufinden! Wie schon der Name sagt, handelt es sich um ein riesiges Geschäft mit unglaublichen Angeboten, ein Paradies für Schnäppchenjäger. Dort kann man viele bekannte Designerstücke zu großartigen Preisen finden. Ich gehe immer gerne zu TK Maxx, nirgendwo anders finde ich Designerstücke bis zu 60 % günstiger im Vergleich zum UVP.

Für uns Modefans ist es ein großes Glück, dass diese besondere Aktion jetzt in dieser Woche läuft – der perfekte Zeitpunkt, um sich die neuen Frühjahrs- und Sommeroutfits zusammenzustellen. Zum Glück lebe ich in Frankfurt, denn hier gibt es einen wirklich schönen und großen TK Maxx direkt im Nordwest-Zentrum. Allerdings gibt es auch viele weitere Filialen in ganz Deutschland. Sie finden Ihre nächste Filiale unter:

Meinen Freunden habe ich empfohlen, am Donnerstagmorgen so früh wie möglich dort zu sein um sich die besten Designer-Stücke zu schnappen! Ich weiß nicht, in welcher Stückzahl die jeweiligen Produkte geliefert werden, der frühe Vogel fängt den Wurm. Eines ist sicher: wir werden früh und hellwach da sein! ;-)

Ich weiß noch nicht genau, welche Marken und Kollektionen ankommen werden, das macht die Erwartung auf tolle Überraschungen aufregend und spannend!

Direkt nach unserer Tour am Donnerstag zu TK Maxx werde ich mich mit Fotos und einem Bericht über den Designer-Shopping-Wahnsinn melden. Ich freue mich, meine gefunden Schätze mit Ihnen zu teilen!

Viel Spaß am Donnerstag und Zeigen Sie uns ebenfalls was Sie erbeutet haben!!


Xoxo, Gali

Hot Shopping Tip: TK Maxx – big labels delivery this Thursday!


Dear friends and readers, I cannot express how utterly excited I am!

A little birdie told me a big secret about what is happening this Thursday.

February 18th will be an amazing day at TK Maxx! They are having a special big delivery of many designer articles coming into all of their stores in Germany. This delivery will include designer clothing for women, men, kids, accessories, home items, shoes, bags and much more.

I don’t know if you are yet familiar with the TK Maxx store concept, but if you are not, then this Thursday is definitely the perfect day to find out! This is a huge store that offers incredible deals. It’s the bargain-hunter’s paradise. There you can find a big offer of well-known designer pieces for a mini fraction of the price. I love going to TK Maxx because it’s the only place to buy designer pieces for up to 60% off (compared to EIA).

Lucky for us fashionistas, this week is when all of the action is happening – just in perfect time for the new spring and summer collections. I’m happy that I live in Frankfurt, because we have a really nice and big TK Maxx here directly in the Nordwest Zentrum shopping mall. However there are many more stores around Germany. Check out their website to find a store near you:

As I suggested to my friends, the best is to arrive as early as possible on Thursday morning, so that you can grab the best designer pieces for yourself! I don’t know how many pieces of each item will be delivered, so it is on a first come, first serve basis. I know that we will be there bright and early! ;-)

I also do not know exactly which brands and collections will be delivered, so the delicious surprise is very tempting and exciting!

I will get back to you directly after our excursion to TK Maxx on Thursday with photos and a report about the designer shopping madness! Looking forward to share my found treasures with you!

Have fun on Thursday and show us what you bought!


Xoxo Gali
