Fiiiiiiiinally, I’m ready to show you all of my Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin looks during the next couple of days. Let’s start with a super cool, casual look with destroyed jeans by True Religion, a timeless leather jacket by Brandalism (via Impressionen) and glitter booties by Buffalo.
Just another reason for being excited for summer to come – the new Buffalo spring / summer 2015 collection has arrived! And I think it couldn’t be more versatile! Pastel, metallic, glitter, sneakers, wedges, heels – if there isn’t a fitting shoe for every situation then I don’t know. My first treasure are the Buffalo plateau wedges in 90ies style, I already showed you in the look „It’s time for neoprene, baby!“.
As soon as spring arrives, each and every year, I suddenly can’t wait for summer to come! And this funny button inside my head, that only knows two settings – winter and summer – switches. And because there effectively doesn’t exist fall or spring for me, me and my wardrobe behave as if it’s already summer. And so I start buying summer essentials in March, just to be over-punctual at the ready.
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.“
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…

Christmas 2014 – a week tomorrow it is already Christmas Eve. And my to-do-list gets bigger and bigger. Each and every year I again plan to do a lot of things and think „Well, Christmas is still far away.“, but then, one week before Christmas, I take a look at my to-do-list and have to ascertain that I only did one thing from the list (mostly the one, that was the easiest to do). So, there’s a lot to do for the next seven days. Starting with the last presents I need to buy and baking cookies (of course, not only one sort, but vanilla crescents, tiny nut wedges, cut-out cookies…) through to cleaning up and doing the laundry, because everything needs to be tidy for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. And of course there’s this one crucial question: What the hell am I going to wear?

Days are getting shorter, it’s getting cold outside, maybe you’ve caught the first cold and it’s only some days until the christmas markets open their doors. Somehow it feels like I’ve never been more excited for Christmas as this year. The christmas magic already got me and so I’m looking forward to the first glühwein, the first roasted almonds, to baking cookies and to the first snow. I’m looking forward to buying presents and wrapping it up lovely. I can’t wait for these cozy Christmas evening with my beloved ones. And of course I’m looking forward to festive styles. Each and every year, some weeks before Christmas, I start to think about what I could wear for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. And one thing’s always definite: it has to sparkle! When it comes to Christmas, I use to go for typical Christmas colors like silver, gold, red and dark green. Here are three looks that I would love to wear for Christmas!
The usual New Year’s Eve madness. There are almost 365 days in a year that we think about our outfit of the day, but it seems as if there’s no look that is more important and more well-considered than our New Year’s Eve look. While one of my friends decided some years ago to go to bed at 11 pm on each and every December 31 to keep herself from week-long planning and preparing, everybody else asks themselves two questions: What am I going to do? And what am I going to wear? The time lapse, when people start to plan their New Year’s Eve is long – I’ve got friends, who already ask me what we’re going to do in September (!!), but I’ve also got friends, who only right after Christmas happen to notice New Year’s Eve is coming. But sooner or later almost everyone gets grabbed by New Year’s Eve madness.
I’m not really into ballet. Purple is one of the colors I like least of all. I prefer my hair loose. But even so I love todays look. And that’s the reason why fashion is that fascinating – it surprises.
There was a time, when I was much more faster disliking a style of clothing, a trend or a specific garment. It’s different today. From time to time there are still trends I think „now way“, for example the infamous Buffalo Boots or the black plastic tattoo-necklaces, that seem to be coming in fashion again. But besides this, almost everything gets its chance.
When was the last time you went to the movies? I haven’t watched a movie in cinema for a very long time, although I just love everything about going to the movies. Popcorn or nachos? Both! I just can’t decide which one I want, so I always buy both. Normally I have no problem to share my food, but when it comes to cinema I do have. I want to eat everything all alone. But that doesn’t work when you have your hands full. Well, that means sharing after all (but unwillingly). At this point I really have to laugh about myself because it’s so weird. But that’s how it is – I’d share everything with you, except my popcorn and my nachos.
