I think I don’t have to tell again, that I’m totally in love with the current Hippie / Bohemian trend. But it doesn’t have to be „hippie“ from head to toe all the time – sometimes it’s enough to add a key piece to give some bohemian vibe to the look. Am I talking about my new skinny jeans? Of course not. I’m talking about my new printed blouse. Love at first sight.

I guess most of us probably won’t travel to California this weekend, won’t visit Coachella and won’t dance the night away on desert sand. Is it a pity? YES! Is it a reason to be sad? Maybe. But for those, who would love to experience a little bit of Coachella flair, consolation is in sight: This year hippie, boho and 70ies looks are more fashionable than ever – and not only for two weekends in California. Fringes, suede, lace and crochet details dominate the fashion collections in store. Anyone who’s not a big fan of that, probably won’t get lucky this summer. But for everyone else, including me, it’s like a big Coachella party 2 go!
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…
(EN/DE) Cologne carnival is finally over and that means it’s time to get serious again. Even though I had a really great time being Minnie, a fortuneteller and a Hippie girl, I’m looking forward to dress normally again. If […]
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!“
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.
#storyofmylife: Lately at H&M: It was clear from the outset that I wouldn’t stick to my intention to only buy a new bag and be home again in about one hour. The question is, why we are making these kind of plans again and again, when it never comes off. Maybe we try to give destiny a leg up!? Because honestly, the best buys happen, when we little liars vow to ourselves to quickly get into the city to only buy a specific garment. I have no idea, why it’s always like that, but when it works, I’m fine with it.

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!
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?
Have you ever thought about how it would be to be Carrie for one day or even more important to own her closet? If I had one wish and I wasn’t allowed to wish for peace but rather only for material things, I guess I would choose Carrie Bradshaws closet. By the way – who doesn’t think of Sex and the City, Cosmopolitans and shoes when hearing the name „Carrie“, must have fallen into a deep sleep during the last years. And who doesn’t know what I’m talking about when I say „Carrie“ and „tulle skirt“, needs to have a look at the Sex and the City Intro quickly.
„I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet.“ Carrie Bradshaw
„In love with… CAPES“ and „In love with… OVERKNEES“ follows today „In love with… WOOL COATS“. There was a time in my life, I refused to wear coats and winter jackets. I decided to wear three sweaters underneath my summer jackets and freeze unmovable through winter. I really can’t tell why. But if that wouldn’t have been enough – I had the same „problem“ with boots once, maybe it has been at the same time. „Who’s this crazy girl wearing a denim jacket and ballerinas in winter?“ That was me. But luckily these days are over and I’m in love with coats and boots since years. At the top of my „although I already got one, I need to buy some more-list“ currently stands a wool coat.
„Are you a boy or a girl?“ he asks me. „A girl!!“ I answer disgustedly. This happened some years ago at a festival. It was dark and rainy. I was wearing wide jeans, sneakers and a rain jacket. The hood covered my unmade-up face. When I think about it today I understand that it wasn’t clear if I’m a girl or a boy. But at that time I brood about it for a while – am I only clearly recognizable as a girl, when I’m wearing typical girls clothes!?
