The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen One of my favourite stories as a child was that of the Snow Queen, a fairy tale written by Dutch poet Hans Christian Andersen. The tale represents the struggle between good and evil, with the beautiful and fierce Snow Queen as the villain, and sweet Gerda as the heroine, who frees Kai from the spell of the troll-mirror splinter with the power of her love.

The Snow Queen The Snow Queen I must admit, villains always fascinated me like no other characters in books and films…even when I was a child. Don’t get me wrong, I never endorsed evil behaviour, I did, however, and still do admire the generally elegant, determined, sexy, self-confident and fierce representation of female villains.

The Snow Queen The Snow Queen Being a pretty goofy and clumsy midget with untameable curly hair, who loves to dress like a little boy in trainers and wide trousers, I usually fail to feel particularly elegant. Even dresses and skirts can’t quite turn me into a lady, who oozes fierceness and sex appeal.

The Snow Queen Yet, one item of clothing that has been hiding in the depths of my wardrobe since July has finally managed to do exactly that: the Reiss Hermitage wool Jacket in the colour frost. The moment I put it on, I knew how I would style it for maximum effect. Faux leather pants and overknee boots on the bottom for fierceness and sex-appeal, blood red colour on my lips for a self-confident pout, my hair in a sleek ponytail to give my cheekbones full exposure, and the frosty jacket as a finishing touch to straighten my posture, define my waist and turn me into the elegant modern day Snow Queen I always wanted to be.

    Those boots are seriously amazing. And while it is a departure from your usual wide-leg and sneakers look, it still feels intrinsically you, which is the true telling of style! You look gorgeous, as per usual. You totally own the ladylike look!

      Awe babe! I’m so glad you feel that way. As you said, usually my style is rather relaxed and oversized, but I do like to throw in more feminine looks from time to time. I’d like to think that I’m a pretty versatile person, who loves to experiment with fashion :) xx

    WAHNSINN! Was für ein toller Kurzmantel! Echt wunderhübsch! Und die Overknees *_*
    Ja, Animals Liberty labert Urban Decay und the Body Shop rot, weil beide von L’Oréal übernommen wurden und die ja nachweislich Tierversuche durchführen… Ich finde sowas Mist, weil die so viel Geld haben, dass sie es nicht nötig hätten.
