Forever 21 Store Opening - Minto Mönchengladbach // How I met my outfit

Forever 21 Store Opening – Minto Mönchengladbach

(ENGLISH / DEUTSCH)

“Ahhhh, Forever 21!! Where? Where? Where?“ two girls screaming with laughter at me while pointing on my shopping bags. That’s what happened when I arrived in Cologne yesterday afternoon. Depending on where you live, your reaction might look the same, when I’m going to tell you, where my Forever 21 shopping bags came from: Mönchengladbach! Yes, a new Forever 21 store opened at the Minto Arcaden in Mönchengladbach yesterday! And that’s either near to Berlin, nor near to Munich, but in the middle of North-Rhine-Westphalia. And when I answered “Mönchengladbach” to the girls, their screaming with laughter turned into jumps of joy.

(DEUTSCH / ENGLISH)

Mal ehrlich – gibt es ein nerviges Wehwehchen als Blasen an den Füßen? So sehr ich mich auf den Sommer und die „Barfuß-in-den-Schuhen-Saison“ freue, so sehr graut es  mir auch davor, all die neuen Pumps und Sandaletten einzulaufen, die ich so über den Winter angesammelt habe. Versteht mich nicht falsch – ich freue mich natürlich riesig, meine neuen Schätze endlich tragen zu können, aber wir alle mussten wohl schon mal erfahren, wie undankbar neue Schuhe zu unseren Füßen sein können. Umso glücklicher bin ich, euch heute meine neuen Retter in der Not vorstellen zu dürfen:  den Compeed Anti-Blasen Stick und die Compeed Blasenpflaster!

Leather Pants Part II - How I met my outfit

Leather Pants Part II



(ENGLISH / DEUTSCH)

I’ve got my leather pants on! Again. Again and again. At least until it’s getting too warm to wear them. But even if it’s midsummer, I would still consider to take my leather pants out on breezy summer nights. And if it’s way too warm, it’s not the end for leather pieces. We can easily switch to suede mini skirts, that are supposed to be a huge spring / summer trend this year. (You can have another look at my favorite spring / summer 2015 trends here.)

Modern Safari II How I met my outfit

Modern Safari



(EN/DE)

Some weeks ago I wrote about my six favorite spring / summer 2015 trends – and while I was searching for pieces that match the „Modern Safari“ trend, my wide linen pants, that I bought more than a year ago and didn’t wear once, came to my mind. Luckily they survived the dreary year inside of my closet. Because normally, when it comes to separating out and selling my clothes, my first rule is: „When you didn’t wear it throughout a year, you’ll never wear it again.“

The Cotton Candy Coat II How I met my outfit

The Cotton Candy Coat



(EN/DE)

Cotton Candy and love apples, bumper car and raffle ticket booth, roasted almonds and pickled cucumber… everyone thinks of a different word, but we all mean the same: funfair, fairground, kermess. How long I haven’t been there! As a child I totally loved it – especially the raffle ticket booth and „pull strings“ – although it’s the most unspectacular thing you can do at the funfair. „Prizes, prizes, prizes! No blanks! Every ticket wins!“ As a child you firmly believe that this time you’ll win the biggest soft toy the ticket man has to offer. But oh no, countless times you go home with a stupid little keychain. Some learn from that and leave gambling behind. Others start to join the lottery and firmly believe that one day they will win the biggest prize the lottery fairy has to offer. But we all now what they gonna take home countless times…

Concrete Jungle Look II How I met my outfit

Concrete Jungle



(EN/DE)

“…where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do. Now you’re in New York Cologne.“ New York or Cologne – where’s the difference? Ok, although I’m badly in love with Cologne, I must confess that there might be a little difference between these two cities. Aside from the fact that Cologne (of course) is much more beautiful, New York may be a little more lively. But during the next days the gap is going to decrease. Why? Because it’s Cologne carnival! And that means streets will be crowded and there will be almost nothing you can’t do, or become – just like in New York!

Black & White II How I met my outfit

Black & White (like a panda)

Black & White



(EN/DE)

Short story: „Why Black & White is always right!“ Giant pandas show us how to do and we copy it. When I think about looks that you can’t go wrong with, there are exactly three combinations that come to my mind: 1. the classical #allblackeverything look, 2. blue jeans and white shirts and 3. black & white looks.  But why? I think it’s because black and white virtually suit everybody. Maybe the giant panda better than the cow, but nobody really looks weird when wearing black and white. At least I have never ever thought: „Oh dear, I’m so sorry, but black isn’t your color!“

Berlin (Blogger) Fashion Week II How I met my outfit

(EN/DE)

Even if you didn’t make it to Berlin this week, didn’t sit in the front row and didn’t freeze five days at a time well dressed through winter, it probably has been no problem at all, to stay up to date about what’s going on in Berlin (Thanks to Instagram!). Yes, maybe I’m a little bit jealous, cause’ I haven’t found the time, to go to Berlin, but it also has been really nice, to sit at home, no-make up, just sweatpants and spy out what’s going on in Berlin. And there was a lot going on!

Day 14 in 2015. Coffee and chia pudding. I’m all set. A look at my to-do-list tells: there are just two things done out of more than twenty. And one of these two things is only done for the moment. Because, to be honest, „do the laundry“ disappears at least for 48 hours. I have no idea why it’s always like that, but if my hair from now on would grow as fast as my pile of washing does, I would turn into Rapunzel the day after tomorrow. And if I would be Rapunzel soon, I would be sitting in a tower and probably wouldn’t have any to-do-list (and any laundry problem either). But this idea causes a problem – where should I get a tower from that quickly? The only tower that comes to my mind is Colognes TV tower. And I guess I would have to pay a rack rent. I wonder if Rapunzel needed to pay a rent? Hopefully she had a Tangle Teezer to comb all of her hair. How high was her tower? I guess not as high as mine. Question is, if my prince will be able to save me. And do I really want to get rescued? It’s pretty cozy here with my OnePiece onesie. „Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!“ „Splat!“ it goes and my pile of (laundry) hair hits the ground. Luckily, I’m wearing a Papanga, so I don’t get flung out of the window. My prince is carefully prepared – after drinking a green smoothie, he easily climbs up to my window. Beaming with joy he opens his hip bag and presents me with joy (… drum roll …) my to-do-list! „You forgot it at home!“, he says.

Material Mix Girl & Special Guest

Material Mix Girl & Special Guest II Photos: Jochen Schneider

Bloggers don’t like each other. They just bitch about each other behind their backs. Bloggers only look for their own profit. And if it seems as if they would like each other, it has to be fake.

Good thing not everything that people say is true. I guess this prejudice may go for some bloggers, but I’m always stunned how nice and heartily the most bloggers are, when you get to know them. A blogger, I especially have taken to my heart, is Lisa from The L Fashion. So I guess it’s clear who’s the „special guest“ today – of course it’s Lisa! But at bottom, originally I’ve been the guest. Because Lisas boyfriend (and photographer) Jochen has been so sweet, that he didn’t only take some pictures of Lisa some days ago, but also some pictures of me.

When we start to put on our gloves and beanies, when there’s scent of glühwein and roasted almonds in the air and we secretly hope for snow, it becomes clear: Christmas is coming. The glühwein season has started, present searching begins and our homes are about to get decorated festively. But not only our home need to get decorated – as soon as my surrounding ablates with light, I feel like dressing myself up for Christmas!

Shades of Red II How I met my outfit

Shades of Red

Shades of Red

(EN/DE)

Trend color: Red. This time I got inspired by this beautiful fall / winter 2014 look by Prabal Gurung. But he wasn’t the only one that showed us a red-on-red look this fall / winter. And although I normally don’t feel attracted by pieces in red, I’ve fallen head over heels for „shades of red“ look this year. Where does it come from? As we know, red is the color of love – so could it be, that red touches our inner romantic side? Or do we just still think red is the expression of sensuality and passion?
