3 Outfit Ideas To (still) Wear with a Turtleneck!

Allgemein

I can’t recall, when my deep dissatisfaction with scarves started. It must have been winter obviously and i probably must have been sick with tieing them around my neck plus making me look like i was a michelin man (not having a problem with looking like a michelin man in general). Its pretty tough to dress properly and not in jeans and sweaters constantly in winter, but adding a scarf to the already trash outfit didn’t make it any better. But how does one keep oneself warm and still look OK? Like the unexpected headline predicted. Turtlenecks!

Its scary how often i wear turtlenecks indeed. A non-qualified statistical review of mine confirmed that its about 90 percent. So apparently i needed to share my deep wisdom with the world and show you some ways to try!

New Year equals New Style?

Allgemein

I do not know if it is a natural symptom to believe that style changes after new years. Something in our brains tell us, that a new period starts ( not just our braain, it’s a bit of a reality though huh?). Everything needs to be planned for the upcoming year. Bullet journals are taken out to start a more structured life. Fitness and health is being written with big letters. Family and friends is going to be spend more time with. Enthusiastic feelings should occur, just like when you know a new runway show is going online or those shoes you’ve been craving for, for weeks, will finally arrive in two days.  Still, it is more like a brew of feelings, mainly consisting of indifference and laissez-faire towards the future. Maybe it is the pressure of having to know yourself better now, getting older and also being compelled of knowing whats good right now (also in a materialistic-fashion kind of way). The only reason that sounds comprehensible is that we have an extreme urge to change ourselves now that the new year starts. It’s like somebody deleted everything before and we now get the chance to start from the bottom, concerning ourselves, our style or our habits. But that’s just the impression one gets. I will try my best like every year and i am also most certain that nothing will change at all. But except for the styles of course. Future habits of shopping unnecessarily follows below.

Screenshot 2017-12-05 14.59.00.pngLiving in the US definitely has its flaws. Especially in sale season. How come it starts so early in the States and we poor Europeans have to wait until Christmas. This marketing strategies are driving me crazy. Good luck to have friends abroad or simply not being a shopaholic and waiting till sale season starts officially. Anyway, i still picked out some of the greatest gifts one can make to oneself or your beloved other half or whoever you want (spending money is the priority here!)

The Spring 17 RTW Prada show had me from the beginning on. I don’t know why, but my inner self tells me to look like a tomboy/grandma from the 60’s from now on. Resort 18 carries a lot of similar items, but Spring 17’s are on sale right now! So here are some of the best picks available!

The best designer sneakers to exchange your Stan Smith’s, immediately!

Allgemein

As a non believer in terms of „comfort goes over appearance“, i do have to deal with my decision on a daily basis. Feet do not want to be abused and squeezed into tiny pointed heels (thanks balenciaga, the 2000’s and my addiction) and  it still seems impossible for me to find a right pair of sneakers. I know, it may appear so easy, just go get a pair of stan smiths you might say, or buy these nikes, they are so retro now with all their 1970’s designs being brought back to you. Or not. All in all their comfortable and thats what they all should be about. I would love to to be thinking like that, but i definitely am not capable of seeing one more of the aforementioned shoes, let alone on my feet. I definitely do not want to make it sound like i’m too cool for sneakers. I just can’t handle wearing shoes, everyones wearing. Yes, one of my biggest (and most expensive) weaknesses.
Anyway, i wouldn’t right about all this, if there wasn’t a solution for all of this.
Until recently i was in strong belief wearing designer sneakers was a mum thing. No offense to any stylish mums wearing designer sneakers. I get you know. Apparently the whole athletics trend overrunning the runways led to some pretty good examples. First, the asians got me with their style again, while i was in milan running around on a fair. I saw them on her. It was true beauty. And they were sneakers. Impossible for me to find out which brand they were from, i had to follow said women for almost 10 minutes. I still couldn’t see the designers label or recognize its design. Devastated, i gave up. No chance to find them anymore, might be a still foreign but so cool label from the far east, i thought. But then, there was this mall. I saw them right under the very famous skull heads of our beloved Alexander Mcqueen. And their it all started. The upcoming days i was searching for similar looking or lets better say, design worthy sneakers and i have found so many.
So please, do yourself a favor and change your Stan Smiths. They deserve a pause.

How revolutionary is Vetements really?

Allgemein

We had seen it before, kind of. Not the very chic, high-fashion, embroidery-filled, pailletes-full gowns. But the cool guys between all the high fashion brands. First Acne comes to mind, maybe 3.1. Phillip Lim, Jil Sander, Balenciaga and so on. There were a few brands, where one used to think that they will kind of change the fashion game.  But Vetements changed it totally.  Making new jeans out of old ones might not be a new idea, but how come paying 1k for jeans is ok or even a good idea?

 

I truly have to say that i have no true explanation.
It just might be an image created by the designers. It is like a joke. It all started with the famous DHL Shirt, does anyone remember?
It was like making jokes about serious brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Co., who’s famous status symbol is there Logo. Maybe it was even meant critically, concerning the crazy going hype with all the logos on bags, shoes and clothing. The best example is their sweater. Still they have the same price tags on.
Anyway.
I personally think that it just fits perfectly in the ongoing hype of the 80’s and 90’s
which is accompanied by the very youthful and gothic-like looks, especially by using german words like „Polizei“,  celebrating being different. So it definitely is not revolutionary, but still gives enough fresh air to this whole circus.
