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 →

Experimenting

Look at that frown Ladies and Gentlemen! I promise you, this is not the frown of a hitwoman, who just left a murder scene…no…This frown, my lovely readers, is merely that of a woman with extremely light-sensitive eyes, who forgot her sunglasses at home. Dommage! If this pretty head wasn’t firmly attached… Anywho, now that we’ve addressed the elephant in… 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.

Leather and Layers

I have a crush, ladies and gentlemen, a blogger crush. Her name is Maja, she’s from Düsseldorf, and she’s the queen of layers. I wish I could give you a few more hard facts about her, but I can’t. Why not? Because her blog posts consists exclusively of pictures. Although I can’t deny how much I love getting a glimpse… Read more →

Once Upon A Time - What Defines Us

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time there was a young princess, who left her castle to explore the world. On her travels she visited many far away places that tickled her fancy, but only one of them was able to steal her heart – an island surrounded by the deep blue sea, not too far from home, yet far enough to escape… Read more →

Danger Danger

Gosh…I don’t know how to put this without causing yet another stir at the MI6 aka the British Secret Intelligence Service. Could I be any more dramatic? Probably not, but fact is that I unintentionally happened to make the MI6 panic a little – if only for a second – with this exact photo shoot the other day. Just talking… Read more →

Seasonal Bliss

Seasonal Bliss

Since I started my blog in February I have noticed a huge shift in my perception of the four seasons. Before What Defines Us was born only two seasons existed in my mind: winter and summer. I hardly ever acknowledged spring and autumn as seasons in their own right – they were mere transitions between winter and summer, the time… Read more →

Summery Autumn Vibes

Summery Autumn Vibes

Ready or not autumn, I’m coming for you! You can hide, but I’ll find you anyway…eventually… in black and white and grey and maybe a hint of camel. Back in late August, when the temperatures suddenly plummeted, and I just didn’t know what to wear, I got scared. I wasn’t ready, didn’t know how to adapt to the cold –… Read more →

Oldie But Goodie

Oldie But Goodie

While I was back home in good old Germany lounging in my old bedroom, I suddenly felt like going through my old stuff…ALL of my old stuff to be exact, and I literally rummaged through all of my drawers, cupboards, boxes, as well as my big fat wardrobe at around 2am in the morning…I must have looked like a mad… Read more →
