Look Update: April 2017!

Just a few dresses I tried on… All pics by Franzi.

The last four weeks I was on the hunt for dresses! Honestly, I tried on at least 300 dresses. The reason: The wedding season starts. The first wedding of 2017 in my circle of friends is on Thursday. Obviously, I had nothing to wear for such a special event. It really was not easy to find something in this jungle of different dress styles. And once more I realized that I hate changing cabinets and this awful light. But finally I was successful and found three great dresses!

The three dresses I finally bought.

…And no, I will not reveal which dress I will wear at which wedding. By the way: There are more than ‘only’ three weddings in the line this year :D.

Moreover, I participated at a clothing swap party! Now I have a LOT more space in my wardrobe and got three nice cardigans and a pair of sunglasses! Such a great idea to refresh your spring wardrobe without much money (and eco-friendly) :)!

With regard to my shoes, there are also news: I trashed my old sneakers and bought these new beauties. Since I also ruined my sandals last summer, I also bought two new pairs of sandals:

My new sandals – brown leather by Keen, black leather by ZIGN.

Then, as an after-effect of last month’s look post, I bought a pastel colored blouson (by H&M):

My new blouson.

And I also spotted a new trend: BODYSUITS!

I saw some girls, who have gone really crazy about this distinct piece :)!

Would you wear bodysuits? For me they feel a bit too much 1980s… But on the other hand, they do look quite elegant on some women.

Have a beautiful April week! With lots of sun and dress-compatible weather :)!

Fashion Highlight Spring 2017: Blousons (Bomber Jackets)!

Two blousons I saw last week at the #SMWHH. Pic by Franzi.

The last week I spent at the Social Media Week Hamburg #SMWHH. I not only learned a lot of interesting new things, but also spotted very stylish people all around me. The one item that I came across again and again were silky (really: parachute fabric!) blousons – aka bomber jackets!

I was surprised: Bomber jackets always remind me on my adolescence in the 1990s were they represented a clear (right-oriented) political standing. Now they come with floral designs and bright flashy colors. They are teamed up with skirts or skinny jeans and worn by women and men! With the still colder temperatures out there most people I met wore them as a blazer or cardigan underneath their winter coats. Nevertheless, I am sure that blousons will be worn as light coats when it’s finally getting warmer.

Would you wear a bomber jacket? Let me know!
Have a beautiful week!

Some second-hand blousons I found in the PICKnWEIGHT store in Hamburg.

Three Fall Trends!

Here are three trends for fall/winter 2015. I have to admit that I am not very convinced. Maybe the high-waisted jeans? Or I wait and watch out for some trendy girls on the streets, who dare to wear blankets (aka ponchos) over their shoulders. …Actually, the checked shirts will look better on guys anyway ;).

What do you think – will you wear them?

A New Trend? Knee Ripped Jeans!

Knee Ripped JeansCredit

Currently, I recognized a new trend on the streets of Berlin and Hamburg: A lot of hip people a wearing dark skinny jeans with ripped knees. Actually, it’s not a big rip, but a distinct cut that only shows clear skin if the leg is bent. First I thought: “Oh no, not that ripped jeans trend again. That’s totally 90s.” But slowly I start to think that it’s different. Somehow more sophisticated – I even saw tall (and totally adorable) men sporting it. I am pretty sure that I won’t present my own knees in that way (my knees are a very sensitive part of my body and I would never expose them to be the center of attention). But somehow I like to see all this flashes of pure skin around me now…

Would you dare to rip your skinny-jeans and show your knees around?

A Rediscovered Must-Have: Jeans Jackets!

Jeans JacketCredit

Lately, I accidentally listened to the following conversation between two parents in a high street store. He: “Why does our daughter need a new jacket anyway?” She: “Because she needs a jeans jacket.” He: “But she has already a jacket.” She: “But no jeans jacket. She sais she needs a jeans jacket because it is the must-have of this season.” …I am not pretty sure that the father was convinced by this argument, but I have to admit that his daughter knows something about fashion. Jeans jackets are really present again on the streets. I like their casual look and that one can combine them with nearly everything. Nevertheless, they still carry some 90s memories for me. What about you, will you wear a jeans jacket this spring and summer? I’m curious to know!

A Splash of Neon!

NeonI, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII

We are celebrating the first of May and are all (still/again) wishing the sun would be a bit more present this week. But never mind, we will start into the fresh month in a good mood anyway. And neon seems to be a good helper to brighten up our days. To be honest, I wore more than enough neon colored clothes during the 90s and I was slightly shocked when I realised their reappearance in the shops. After some procrastination I come now to the conclusion that one neon piece may not be the worst idea – in combination with a neutral grey tone it even looks like fun!

I wish you all a perfect (and bright) May 1!

A Modern Classic: Blue Jeans!

Blue Jeans

I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII

I can’t really believe it myself but in 1,5 years of blogging and preparing Look posts I never – not once – wrote about the most obvious fashion item at all: Blue Jeans. Since their first appearance in the end of the 19th century they are a permanent part of the fashion world and today it seems unimaginable to live without them. They a robust, convenient, casual and easily to combine with. – Simply a modern classic that I would not like to miss in my own wardrobe!
