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 →

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 →

Ugly People Beautiful Hearts

Ugly People Beautiful Hearts

Hi everyone! Today, I’m very pleased to introduce to you my blogger friend Marlen from Chicago. She’s not only a blogger extraordinaire at Messages on a Napkin, a woman with impeccable style, and the ultimate queen of layering, but also a super talented poet and author of Ugly People Beautiful Hearts, a collection of over 70 poems and verses “moving… 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 →

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 →

Upside Down

Upside Down

Beauty. Beauty is an elusive concept. It may lie in the eyes of the beholder, but even those eyes have a change of heart sometimes. According to science, symmetry is perceived as beautiful. The more symmetrical somebody’s facial features are the more attractive they look to others. But what about love, and hate? Often our feelings for a person determine… 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 →
