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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

TOGA SS15

TOGA SS15

Day 3 of London Fashion Week, i.e. my last day, concluded with my first ever presentation. I wasn’t sure what to expect compared to an actual catwalk show, but it’s safe to say that I was positively surprised. The TOGA SS15 presentation was held in the absolutely stunning and picture worthy St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel (note to myself: great backdrop… 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 →

Jasmin In Wonderland

Jasmin In Wonderland

You won’t believe what happened to me the other day. Christina and I were sitting in the garden, just reading a book, when suddenly a white talking rabbit with a tiny pocket watch scampered across the lawn and jumped right into a rabbit hole. Considering the rarity of such an unusual encounter, Christina and I followed suit, and after the… Read more →
