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.

The New (Year's Eve) Dress by Hybrid II How I met my outfit

The New (Year’s Eve) Dress by Hybrid

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.

May the Force be with u! II How I met my outfit

This is the second look me and my friend Princess Leia shot on saturday. As I already told you, the two looks we did have nothing in common. You can have a look at the first one here. I know, I know, my friends name isn’t Princess Leia, her name is Sarah. But to give sense to all of that, I decided Princess Leia from now on is my new nickname for Sarah. I think she won’t like it, but hey, she’s a got a female name including a title of nobility. It could have been worse, like Jabba or something.

Yesterday, my friend Sarah (wo already took the last photos for my blog) and I shot two looks, that couldn’t be more different. You can see the first one in the pictures. Normally, I just dress how I feel to do – fashion as an expression of mood! But while we were shooting these two different looks I experienced once again, that you not only dress yourself depending on how you feel, but you also feel depending on how you’re dressed! So, fashion isn’t only an expression of our moods, it also effects on how we feel.

Inspired by the grey weather, I decided to go for a grey on grey look last weekend. For a long tome now, grey is one of my absolute favorite colors when it comes to clothes. Some years ago it has been so bad, that I imposed myself a „grey-ban“. But it didn’t last long and my wardrobe still is full of grey clothes that you can combine easily. I kind of think grey is my black. At least when it comes to sweaters and cardigans.

Bonjour à Paris! II How I met my outfit

Bonjour à Paris!

Bonjour à Paris!

 

Paris, the city of love, as they say. If you have been there before, I guess you can tell why. To me, Paris has a very special flair, that I can hardly describe and that I only experienced in Paris. When I think about Paris, I first think about having a cozy little breakfast on a little french balcony, with croissants, jam, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I think about a cozy long walk through one of the beautiful parks and of crazy passionate shopping. The life in Paris seems to be lively and calm at the same time. And I think this is exactly the magic I feel. Although I’m currently not in Paris, I love to dream myself there – and of course I didn’t refuse to annoy Bene with (unconvincing) french accent while we did the photo shoot. Magnifique!

Oversized Love II How I met my outfit

Oversized Love

(EN/DE)

Although the weather has been quite nice yesterday, we’re kind of running with high speed into fall. And because nobody expected summer to be that short, I guess our wardrobes are full of somber clothing that missed their season and haven’t been worn for now. Added to that, hundreds of pieces we bought in sale to keep them for next summer. But honestly, who’s able to happily put the new pieces into the wardrobe, without wearing them once? I’m not. And that’s why the upcoming looks are going to be something in between summer and fall.

Happy about the summer comeback! <3 How I met my outfit by Dana Lohmüller
Happy about the summer comeback! <3

(EN/DE)

The last weeks haven’t been summerly at all. So I wished badly for a summer comeback. At least for one summerly day, with blue skies and warm sunshine. Without summer rain. Although the weather forecast didn’t sound promising, we decided spontaneously to spend some days at the North Sea in the Netherlands. If we won’t get our sunshine, we’ll get at least some beach and sea days. We arrived on Wednesday evening, when it already got dark. As soon as we got our things out of the car and made the beds, it started to rain and storm. And with this sizzling gas heater, we had to turn on, because it was really cold inside, it kind of felt like an untimely, but cozy fall evening.

Some shoes are made for sitting... II How I met my outfit

Some shoes are made for sitting…

(EN/DE)

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.

Leopard Prints & Jungle Drums

Leopard Print & Jungle Drums

„My heart is beating like a jungle drum.“ There are so many different pattern – checked, striped, dotted, floral pattern, snake pattern, tiger pattern… But none of them divides the minds the way the leopard pattern does. And none of them makes so many women hearts leap for joy. Either you love it or you hate it. There’s nothing in between. But there’s a fine line between top and flop.

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.

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.

It's raining men! Hallelujah! II How I met my outfit

It’s raining men! Hallelujah!

I don’t know why, but every time it’s starts raining, a couple of songs about rain or at least with the word „rain“ come to my mind. My favorite rain song is the fantastic song „It’s raining men!“. But till this day I can’t decide which one I like better – the original by the Weather Girls or the cover by Geri Halliwell!? My rainy dance performance definitely is inspired by Geri Halliwell (at least in my head). By the way, I like rain, not every single time and also not this mean storm or constant rain, but a short summer rain can be so so nice. And this leads us to the next song: „I’m singing in the rain“ by Gene Kelly – this man’s totally right – singing and dancing in the rain can make one happy! Who is in bad mood and didn’t want to sing with me by now, may join singing the next song: “Why does it always rain on me?“ by Travis.
