Back to Bavaria we go and this time I have two more posts before we move on to new faces and styles to inspire you...Munich and Nuremberg had a lot to offer...some great fashion and friendly people who went out of their way to bring a bit of sunshine into my day!
We are back in Nuremberg with this photo above and I ran into her as she was walking into a vintage shop just outside the old city. With this wonderful bag (the crocodile leather application is amazing) and those animal print flats, she was already beeping on my radar...
...then add that hair and infectious smile, and she makes a very worthy candidate for our blog...take some inspiration from her and start looking in vintage stores for good buys now! 2016 is the year to dig out the old and make it new!
Nuremberg at first glance may only be about old buildings (although most was rebuilt after the war) and of course, the world famous market place. Beyond all this, is a city centre that has a lot to offer, although there are thousands of tourists always getting in the way! While the fashion scene may be a bit sedated, there are indeed many wonderful people walking the streets, with major charm and clever fashion ideas.
Our model above, had this wonderfully simple and yet, striking outfit...black and white, favoured by the likes of Chanel, is not as easy as it was to pull off. There has to be something remarkable to make it stand out. I love the large spectacles and the luxe look of the jacket. The Nikes are of course my favourite as I love being comfortable above everything else!
We have been busy. Katharina and I welcomed a new member to our family and it was a whirlwind weekend in Cologne...the newborn is beautiful and well behaved (two things we love) and he arrived just in time to be a Halloween baby...so he is guaranteed a party EVERY year!
On to other things, we are now opening the Nuremberg file further and then we will be presenting our finds in the Bavarian city of Munich...so, stay tuned for more images and streetstyles to make your day just that much brighter...

The beard is a subject of much controversy. It is loathed by many, some going to so far as to say that the beard is indeed a classic cover up for a lack of personality. While the beard has been in almost all fashion editorials and the subject of much debate, it remains one of the forms of expression still left to men the globe over. It has in many cultures a real significance and it is a signifier of position and authority. We, here at Dashing George, love the look above, spotted at a salon in Nuremberg. It is proportionally sound and adds definition to our model's face. And, let's face it...it takes guts to wear it!
Women are fortunate that they have so many ways to reinvent themselves. They can play with make-up, hairstyles and have countless clothing and shoe choices. For men, the list of acceptable accessories and clothing styles are rather limited. This is why I support the beard. I myself have a moustache and while the world may say it is 'out' to wear a beard or any other facial hair, i say, as the British do, 'poppycock'! Allow us men the possibility of reinventing ourselves too...as Madonna once said: 'Express what he's got, oh baby ready or not!'
Hello to you all and I hope your Sunday is running smoothly, with feet up and hopefully you are all in jogging trousers and watching mindless TV or out getting some fresh air.
We are finally delving into our Nuremberg file and hope you will adore this next picture. She was spotted in the city and we love the statement necklace and print blouse. A perfect combination when teamed with wonderful, healthy hair…see, ladies, less is more here!
Our top choices for statement pieces has to be this Oasis Pave Leaf Open Torque Necklace from Asos, selling at 22,75 euros, or this Queenbee Collar necklace from baublebar.com selling at 68 dollars. Finally, we have to of course include something from our fave statement piece designer, Shourouk, and here we have to get our hands on this Twiggy necklace retailing at 700 euros.

When you are in Nuremberg, there is a lot to take in. You have the churches, the square, the countless little alleys and of course you have to avoid the masses…and there are a lot of tourists, regardless of what time of day or season. You will always be hassled and shoved a bit, but this is part of the package. So, this next streetstyler, was a welcome relief indeed when I spotted her in the city centre. I loved the scarf in her hair and when I looked further, I had to smile at her clever outfit, combined with the effortless chic of a Celine bag. We love this look!
