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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

The Apple of my Eye

The Apple of my Eye

At the risk of sharing just a tad too much of my personal live with the rest of the world, I kinda feel like talking about the apple of my eye today – my little power duo. Or should I call them the appleS of my eyeS? They’re both very unique characters, so I guess I should really be using… Read more →

Fierce in Black and White

Fierce in Black and White

I don’t know about you, but for me, fashion is not only about parading the latest trends and creating eye-catching compositions. First and foremost, it’s about feeling save, happy and strong. “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life” – literally and metaphorically – and it lets us express our feelings and emotions without having to say… Read more →

That Time of Year

That Time of Year

It’s that time of the year again. The days are finally getting longer, the sun is coming out more and more often, temperatures are slowly but steadily crawling their way back above the 0°C mark, and birds are chirping off the roofs. Spring is in the air. Finally! The weeks just after Christmas are always the bleakest. The wonderful Christmas… Read more →

Giving Back

Giving Back

What I am about to tell you may sound completely crazy – and I can’t quite believe it myself – but in the last two months I’ve literally managed to get rid of almost 90kg worth of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. Some of the stuff went to friends and family, some went straight into the bin, but most of… Read more →

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

A post like no other, a post marking the end of an era and a new beginning, the first post back home. No more London pictures, no more London advice – my blog has officially arrived in Germany. Although my path has already led me to a different German city, I am excited to show you the first outfit pictures… Read more →

Adulthood 2.0

Adulthood 2.0

Yes, another one of those inappropriately candid blog posts about the struggles of life. I’ve been consumed with the thought of finding the right path and being a responsible adult lately. Thinking about the future certainly sounds like the prudent thing to do, but there are no hard and fast rules to follow. The struggle of being an adult with… Read more →

Hairy Situations

Hairy Situations

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself vain. Yes, I do look into every mirror and window I pass by on the street; even to the extent that people walking behind me have noticed and commented on it before. But it’s really not like I ever wear a lot of makeup, and I’m perfectly comfortable leaving the house barefaced, even with a… Read more →

Yes you can!

Yes you can!

‘I can’t possibly wear this.’ Yes darling, you can! There are clothes that flatter the silhouette of a 5’2 ft woman, and there are clothes that don’t. Until a few months ago I would have sworn that boyfriend shirts and boxy coats definitely belonged to the latter category. Women of my stature don’t always find it easy to make trends… Read more →

On to the next one

On to the next one

Now that Christmas is officially over, you’re well rested, and a new year is about to start it’s time to give a thought or two to how you’re going to conclude 2014 in style – if you haven’t so already. What better way to celebrate the end of a great year and the beginning of an even greater one, than… Read more →

Happy People

Happy People

What do you expect from life? Fame? Fortune? Health? I’m gonna be a little greedy and say happiness! Being happy doesn’t always come easy to us, even with a famous surname, a Lamborghini in the garage and a healthy lifestyle. It’s the little things in life that make us truly happy. But it’s often the little things we fail to… Read more →
