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 →

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 →

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 →

Experimenting

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 →

Wintour is coming

Wintour is coming

Please excuse the lame pun, but it had to be done. I can’t believe that November is almost over…just a few more days and winter has officially arrived, and what better time to indulge in some all black everything than in winter? Despite the fact that Anna Wintour would never dress in all black, I can’t help but love the… Read more →

A Wardrobe full of Clothes

A Wardrobe full of Clothes

How do you guys and dolls get dressed in the morning? Sometimes it’s easier than easy, isn’t it? You wake up, it’s dark and rainy outside, and you just know that you won’t be leaving the house in anything but all black everything. However, particularly women tend to have a reputation of having wardrobes full of clothes, but nothing to… Read more →

Danger Danger

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 →

LFW Day 3 Outfit

LFW Day 3 Outfit

After opting for all black everything the previous day, I decided to choose an all white ensemble for day 3 of London Fashion Week. Once I had my mind set on the colour palette of my outfit, the actual look came to me in no less than an epiphany. Cheap it should be, i.e. incorporate only items I already own,… Read more →

Case In Point

Case In Point

As some of you may know, I usually take all of my outfit pictures myself. So every weekend I grab my camera, tripod and remote shutter and go on the hunt for a relatively quiet yet presentable backdrop in the heart of Lambeth. Being looked and even laughed at is a hazard of the job. It has happened a lot… Read more →

From Dusk Till Dawn

From Dusk Till Dawn

If you are a regular reader you may have noticed that I’m a woman of many words. 300 words are hardly ever enough for me to get my message sufficiently across. Yet, even chatterboxes like me have a limit, and I may have just found mine. I am dedicated to spending at least two hours per day on blogging related… Read more →

High Necks And Wide Trousers

High Necks And Wide Trousers

High necks and wide trousers – two trends I cannot get enough of and two trends I’ve actually become somewhat “famous” for among friends and colleagues. Some might say that I’m not technically wearing culottes in these pictures – culottes are supposed to be cropped – but that’s the curse of short legs for you; they turn a perfect pair… Read more →

Time To Say Goodbye

Time To Say Goodbye

The time has come, guys and girls, my mum is back in Germany again. After four fabulous days with her in London, it was time to say goodbye on a dreary Wednesday afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed finally letting her in on my life in London, and we had so much fun exploring the city from many different perspectives, mostly in… Read more →

Pretty Fly

Pretty Fly

First things first: Remember the Fashionchick MBFWA competition I talked about in my The Art of Turning Heads article? Well, yours truly was shortlisted as a finalist. I feel so blessed that my outfit was chosen, and it would mean the world to me, if you spared a minute to cast your vote here (between 2nd and 10th of June).… Read more →
