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.
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!“.
(ENGLISH / DEUTSCH) Neoprene – the stuff that diving suits are made of. Until some years ago, we probably all would have thought of diving suits when hearing the word „neoprene“. But at least since […]
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!
The fabulous Coco Chanels once said: „A woman with good shoes is never ugly.“ Legendary Dolly Parton told us: „When I feel a little low, I put on my favorite high heels to stand a little taller.“ Victoria Beckham „can’t concentrate in flats“ and Marilyn Monroe once said: „Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.“ Women talk about shoes for hundreds of years and I guess there’s no other piece of clothing that seems to be more magical and fascinating. And so you can imagine that I was exceptionally happy about the invitation to the Buffalo Blogger Event in Cologne.
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.
Some shoes are made for sitting… „Aww, they fit, but I cannot walk. But they’re soooo beautiful – maybe I just put them into my wardrobe and have a look at them from time to time.“ said my friend Sarah when she tried on these shoes, I bought some time ago. I couldn’t walk wearing them as well, but they also were a little too big for me. If it just would have been the fact, that I can’t walk wearing them, I would have kept them. I know, it’s very logical. Shoes you can’t walk in anyways, at least have to fit to make you keep them. But they didn’t and so it was the perfect solution that these beautiful heels will be standing inside Sarahs wardrobe, because at least they fit her.
Did you get excited to go on vacation during the last sunny days as well? Imagine you would wake up in holidays tomorrow morning: Cozy breakfast on the terrace. Put on your new bikini. Lay down on the beach. Splash around. Read a book. Use sun cream. Have lunch at the cutest café in town. Take a walk. Lay down on the beach again. Splash around. Eat ice cream. Have a shower lately. Put on your new summer dress / denim shorts. Let your hair dry in the air. Drink cocktails. Relax. Fall asleep with a smile.
Grease definitely is my favorite musical. I just love the story, the songs and of course, the looks. Every time I see a black shiny leggings I have to think of the song „You’re the one that I want“. I know that a lot of people would be bugged, but I think it would be fantastic if sometimes people start to sing a song together in real life as well. And there are a lot of situations I think: „Yes, a musical song right now, please!“.
Did you notice that you kind of have to choose between cats and dogs? Either you like dogs or you like cats. Probably, you can’t like both. And according to wether you decide to like cats or dogs, you’ll judged. I truly heard the question „What about you? Do you prefer cats or dogs?“ quite often. But I don’t like to choose. I like both. Cats and Dogs. I don’t find cats boring and dogs stupid. Why do I have to choose only one? I don’t have to choose if Iike mice or hamsters as well. Do you remember cat dog? Seems as if there was another one who couldn’t decide…
I guess they would have laughed badly about me. So, I actually do wear flats and I fall down anyway. Yes, I tumbled. And yes, I guess it looked funny. My parents, who aren’t Charlie Chaplin and Mary Poppins, but are at least as cool as, surely would have laughed as well. Not that I fall down all the time, but if I do, I kind of act a little strange: 1. get up quickly, 2. look right and left, if anybody saw it, 3. shortly check, if anything hurts, 4. laugh, 5. get away from here. Of course, nothing did hurt, so I was able to laugh about myself. Well, that’s how it is. I’m one of the people, who like to run into objects, drop things and drop oneself.
Spring has arrived, birds are singing, the first flowers start to bloom and somehow everything seems to be a little more „happy-go-lucky“ again. And little by little we start to replace our greatcoats by our beloved trench coats. During the last weeks of winter I usually can’t await to finally send my greatcoats into summer sleep. Almost every year my impatience wins out over my sanity and some weeks too early I freeze optimistically through my summer jackets until I realize that I have to get my greatcoats out of my wardrobe again.
