Something Simple

Something Simple

So…while I’ve been staring at a blank page for around half an hour, waiting for inspiration to strike, I’ve had about a million random thoughts going through my head: the annoying moment my hands gets so sweaty that my iPhone screen stops reacting to my swipes (I even did a quick Google search to see how other people with hyperhidrosis… Read more →

Leg Weather

Leg Weather

Attention trend hunters, sunseekers and cool kids, summer is officially on its way (this time for real). So do your pasty pins a favour and give them some well-deserved Vitamin D in a sassy pair of – drumroll please – CULOTTES…what else? Haha…I promised you the return of the culottes, didn’t I? The culottes game is stronger than ever, and… Read more →

My Calvins

My Calvins

Big flashy brand logos – they just don’t do it for me anymore. When I was a child, New Yorker’s own brand “Fishbone” was all the rage. It may not have been particularly expensive (lucky for our poor parents), but all the girls in my school – me included – couldn’t get enough of that slightly macabre fishbone logo. Soon… Read more →

Florals and Fringes

Florals and Fringes

Florals and fringes, fringes and florals – they’re here, they’re there, they’re everywhere – don’t even try to outrun them this summer. While the floral trend is as omnipresent as ever, fringes are clearly celebrating a banging comeback. Embrace them on the edges of bags, skirts, on the side of trousers or jacket sleeves to make a lasting impression this… Read more →

Floral Obsession

Floral Obsession

Did I or did I not promise you a floral summer? Granted, in my previous post I kept my blooming floral obsession (see what I did there?) to a minimum; expressing it only through the botanical backdrop. Today, I decided to take it one step further and combine the floral backdrop with an equally floral crop top from boohoo.com. Isn’t… Read more →

Clean Slate

Clean Slate

We all start with a clean slate, our entire life ahead of us, naïve, honest and free of the worries of yesterday and the uncertainties of tomorrow. Life in the here and now – a luxury reserved to children. As toddlers, the only tomorrows we ever acknowledge are Christmas and our birthdays. Yesterday? Never even happened. Every day is a… Read more →

Spot the Difference

Spot the Difference

I give you five seconds to spot the difference between this look and my previous three outfit posts. Can you see it? No? Look down…further down, theeeere you go! It’s my footwear, yes. I finally doffed my beloved sneakers and donned a pair of high heels. Kinda weird to see me in a pair of heels after all of the… Read more →

Transeasonal Challenges

Transeasonal Challenges

Transeasonal dressing can be so much fun – giving your wardrobe a seasonal makeover, playing with the latest trends, discovering new old favourites – but it doesn’t come without its challenges. How do you stay comfortably warm without breaking out in sweats if it’s super cold one minute and super hot the next? Layering is usually the answer – and… Read more →

Oldies

Oldies

At the risk of sounding like the Antichrist, I have to admit that Facebook isn’t really my thing anymore. Apparently, today’s youth doesn’t use Facebook at all. Can somebody under 20 confirm, please? I have no idea what is and isn’t hip among teens these days. Anyways, I’m going off topic. There’s one thing left I love about Facebook. It… Read more →

Spring has Sprung

Spring has Sprung

Spring has finally sprung in Berlin….at least that’s what it looks like right now. You can never trust the weather in Germany; especially not in April. But hey, diverse weather makes for a diverse wardrobe, right? Although it was still quite chilly when I went home for Easter, the sun was shining like there was no tomorrow, and so I… Read more →

What Defines Us

What Defines Us

Sometimes doors close. Sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes we need to let things come to an end. These words of wisdom may sound completely cheesy, and easier said than done, but they’re very important to remember. It’s simple really. Just cry your heart out, cut yourself some slack, embrace the next morning, and then lean back, take a… Read more →

External Influences

External Influences

I hate to admit it, but I recently realised that the looks I choose to wear on a daily basis are much less a reflection of my mood, my soul, my inner self, than they are of my surroundings, the city I’m in, the people I am out with. That is not to say that I would ever compromise on… Read more →

Angel Whisperer

Angel Whisperer

…sometimes at dawn, when we’re not exactly sure whether we’re awake or asleep, or at dusk, when shadows form, which let us doubt our feelings, we feel an invisible presence, a whisper, a flutter, a wing stroke, the feeling that something is caressing our cheeks…something we can’t define. These are the angels that surround us, that come and go. They… Read more →
