A little bit of Carrie: the tulle skirt II How I met my outfit

A little bit of Carrie: the tulle skirt

A little bit of Carrie: the tulle skirt

(EN/DE)

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

Shitstorm: Neues Kleiderkreisel Bezahlsystem II How I met my outfit

Shitstorm: neues Kleiderkreisel Bezahlsystem

DE

„Liebe Mitglieder,

 
Kleiderkreisel ist in den letzten Jahren richtig erfolgreich geworden und ihr habt das ermöglicht. Kleiderkreisel lebt von den vielen tollen Kreislern, von eurem Feedback und euren Erfahrungen. 
 
Heute glauben wir, den nächsten Schritt wagen zu können. Darum führen wir das Kleiderkreisel Bezahlsystem bald ein. …“

 

So beginnt das offizielle Statement, das seit ein paar Tagen auf Kleiderkreisel zu lesen ist. Der Grund: Zwei Tage zuvor hatte das Kleiderkreisel Team die Community über die geplante Einführung eines neuen Bezahlsystems informiert und brachte damit einen regelrechten Shitstorm ins Rollen. Zum Verständnis für alle, die mit Kleiderkreisel nichts am Hut haben: Kleiderkreisel ist ein Onlineportal, auf dem hauptsächlich gebrauchte Kleidung verkauft, gekauft und getauscht wird. Ein virtueller Kleiderflohmarkt eben. Das Besondere: gebührenfrei für Verkäufer und Käufer. Aber Kleiderkreisel ist nicht nur der virtuelle, gebührenfreie Kleiderflohmarkt – in den letzten Jahren hat sich eine große und starke Community zusammengefunden, die sich tagtäglich über das Kleiderkreisel Forum austauscht und die Idee „Second Hand als erste Wahl“ unterstützt. Und eben diese Community traute vor ein paar Tagen ihren Augen nicht, als sie von den geplanten Neuerungen auf Kleiderkreisel erfuhr.

Boyish Boyfriend Charme II How I met my outfit

Boyish Boyfriend Charme

boyfriend jeans by Zara - fall look

(EN/DE)

„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!?

In love with... OVERKNEES II How I met my outfit

In love with… OVERKNEES (under 200 €)

(EN/DE)

The first post of „In love with…“ was about CAPES – and here comes my second declaration of love. This time I’m „In love with… OVERKNEES“! What has been THE trend in the 1980s, obviously quickly became a fashion faux pas, although Julia Roberts truly casted a spell over us with her role in Pretty Women despite (or maybe just because) wearing overknees. That has been in 1990. Does it really took about 24 year, that trendsetters were able to replace the shady image of over knees? Not exactly. Over-the-knee boots already make a comeback since some years, but this fall/winter they finally made it to the must-have list.

In love with... CAPES II How I met my outfit

In love with … CAPES

(EN/DE)

Today starts a new category on the blog: „In love with…“ Aren’t we all women that fall in love quickly? At least when it comes to fashion? And is it reprehensible that we take no stock in monogamy in this matter? How is it that we aren’t satisfied with one pair of black boots? Without seeing through rose-colored glasses my black boots almost look identical – I guess the differences just can be seen with an enamored heart. But even if we don’t believe in monogamy, don’t we believe in endless love? I pledged allegiance to my boots and also to my flared jeans. And currently I’m about to swear fidelity to my growing collection of capes. That’s why the post of „In love with…“ starts with „In love with… CAPES.“

Yesterday, one of my best friends took the pictures I show you today. We had so much taking the pictures, but we also truly started to sweat, because yesterday october surprised us with bombastic weather again. I didn’t expect october to be that sunny and warm and so I bought lots of fall pieces during the last weeks. One of my favorite buys is this oversized trench coat by asos.

Sunny Days - It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over II How I met my outfit

Sunny Days – It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over

(EN/DE)

To say it with Lenny Kravitz’ words: It ain’t over ’til it’s over. While the last week started with cold and rainy weather, I stopped hoping for some more sunny fall days. So you can image how happy I had been when the weather became warmer and more friendly during the weekend. And that’s exactly when the song „It Ain’t Over ’Til It’s Over“ came to my mind. And what holds true for love, also hold true for seasons. And so, on this sunny weekend, I had the feeling of summer again.

Blogparade: Collective Styles II How I met my outfit

Blogparade: Collective Styles

(EN/DE)

Some weeks ago, deals.com startet the „Collective Styles“ blogparade in collaboration with OTTO.de, myself.de and Two for Fashion. Twelve bloggers, divided in three groups, are going to create a look with the topic „a sunday walk in fall“. The exciting thing about that: the blogparade is like a relay race. My team members are Ivette, Theresa and Annemarie. Ivette started with picking the top, Theresa then picked a matching bottom and now it’s up to me to pick some shoes. Because the whole outfit isn’t allowed to cost more than 200 €, each of us needs to find something up to 50 €.

“My fearless moment” challenge by Otto

Some weeks ago I received an invitation to join the challenge „My fearless moment“ by Otto. Their current Fearless Selection is about looks, that make you feel strong and self-confident.

about fear

I guess everybody knows it: situations that make you feel uncomfortable and unconfident. The reasons can be very different. Situations that deal with our jobs, university or similar things, may make us feel unconfident, because we’re afraid that we might not be well-prepared or we might won’t be able to show what we’ve got. In personal matters we might fear people could dislike is. But this fear is absolute normal and manlike. Everybody knows it. Some may be able to deal better with this fear than others and some may be more talented to cover up their nervousness, but in the end we’re all the same.

beliya GOOD COUTURE - Bloggers4Charity (+GIVEAWAY) II How I met my outfit

beliya GOOD COUTURE – Bloggers4Charity (+ GIVEAWAY)

*UPDATE 2*: Alle Gewinner wurden per E-mail benachrichtigt! <3

*UPDATE*: Die Schlüsselanhänger, die Ihr noch bis zum 31.08. gewinnen könnt sind heute bei mir eingetroffen und noch hübscher, als auf den Bildern. Allerdings sind sie braun / cognac und nicht rosa / pink!!  

Hallo ihr Lieben,

Nachhaltigkeit, Umweltschutz, Charity. Das alles geht im Alltag oft an uns vorbei und ich schließe mich da nicht aus. Aber umso mehr freue ich mich, wenn ich zufällig auf ein Label stoße, welches sich eben diese Dinge zu Herzen nimmt und sich zur Aufgabe gemacht hat, nicht nur hübsche, sondern auch nachhaltige Mode zu produzieren. Vor ein paar Tagen erreichte mich eine Einladung zu einem Bloggercontest – das Charity Taschenlabel beliya ruft im Rahmen ihrer Kampagne GOOD COUTURE zusammen mit Ihren Partnern, den Onlineshops aboutyou.de und myClassico.com und der Grazia und der Gala, Blogger dazu auf, ein Outfit zu ihrem neuen Charity-Taschenmodell „BELIEVE“ zusammenzustellen. Generell bin ich großer Fan von kreativen Wettbewerben, aber ich bin auch meistens erst mal skeptisch und nehme die Labels vorab genau unter die Lupe.

Boyfriend Jeans & Bubblegum II How I met my outfit

Boyfriend Jeans & Bubblegum

(EN/DE)

„I love you, you love me, please give me a Kaugummi (bubblegum).“ Bubblegum, what a brilliant invention, isn’t it!? Do you remember Hubba Bubba? When I was a child, I had been deeply in love with Hubba Bubba. My absolute favorite one was „apple“. Isn’t it funny how easy it is to keep a child busy? One pack of Hubba Bubba = busy for two hours. A couple of Hubba Bubba packages = on the run all day. Who’s going to guess the flavour? Who’s going to make the biggest gum bubble? Who’s able to chew the most bubblegums at one time? Sometimes I whish life would be that easy from time to time again. Meeting some friends, running with 50 pennies to a store and just trying to make gum bubbles the whole day. Or just playing a round „Mensch ärgere Dich nicht“ („Ludo“) against yourself and be more than happy when you’re the one who wins.

Must-Have: Flower Garlands and Flower Prints II How I met my outfit

Must-Have: Flower Hair Garlands & Flower Prints

(EN/DE)

Even if the sun is hiding again these days, the sun keeps shining in our hearts and wardrobes. An absolute must-have for this summer are flower hair garlands. You can buy them in almost every shape, color and size. I collected my current favorites for you here – I especially love the one with the strawberries, but unfortunately it’s also the most expensive one, but, hey, we’re used to it, aren’t we? Honestly, you need to brave to wear these headpieces – so you can first practice with hair clips and hair barrettes.
