I Already Looked Through The US Sales For You And Found The Best From Net-a-Porter To H&M!

Allgemein, fashion, humor, shopping

Lets pretend we are all stated in the US and our sale period already started. I used to think that this was true injustice and unfair, since our lovely friends from overseas had the chance to roll around  in the latest stuff prior to us, but soon have realized that this also conveys another meaning and chance for us. Lets see what the others get and learn out of it. Me, as a practitioner of Manrepeller religion, can’t wait to find the new articles of Leandra and Amelia of what to get and what not to. Not that one should focus on them, but their hints and argumentations are not-not necessary. As an inhabitant of a city with no sea (we do have a lower humidity level though) we all face the same fate. How is it possible to a) feel good; b) look good and c) look like one desires and not what the weather predetermines? I tell you, its way easier than one thinks.

Advice No.1: Get an oversize blazer

The good thing here is, that you won’t need much else. Just a blouse underneath and maybe something teeny tiny to keep your buttom safe.

Advice No.2: Get a long skirt

Easily worn with the most lousy shirt you own. Since the skirt is here the main piece here, you should try to step down a little with wearing a basic tee or equally good, your favorite Looney Tunes character.

Advice No.3: Get a versatile dress

I guess one should always try to find dresses, that can also be worn with something beneath or with a jacket over it. The best option would be of course some kind of kaftan, but unfortunately its really hard to find some good ones, that don’t make you feel like your coming straight out of  Ibiza. These all still are kind of ok-priced, but there are enough options at the highstreet brands too.

At last i’ll put some of my fav’s highstreet options and links down below:

When did looking amish become trendy?

Allgemein

I remember the very first time it popped into my mind, i was in NYC the first time ever, unlike my expectations we had temperature around 32 ℃ .  Céline already won over my heart with its 2012 AW collection and i started to sympathize more with mid-length skirts and minimalistic longsleeve shirts. It was a good year for me, stylistic improvement wise. So i started wearing a long white midi skirt with a little navy long sleeve over it and classic mary-janes. Walking down the street i realized i was looking different, i just couldn’t spot it. Surrounded by jeans-shorts, slogan shirts, pilot glasses and  flip-flops, everything just very americana i thought. They just like different things i guessed.

That fleeting thought just changed shortly after.

There they were, a group of 5 or 6 crossing the street, with the most wonderful wool woven mid-lengthed skirts, popped high white collars, classic mens loafers and small squared black leather bags. The visual manifestation of everything i was looking for in said days. It striked me that obviously showing too much skin, wearing too tight clothes and expressing these in extreme colour had never been a stylistic vision of mine. I already found the right way, for me, but that day i realized that looking amish, conservative or for some simply modest, expresses so much more than a typical summer look does. It is not a coincidence, that nobles and aristocrates exposed their wealth in form of fabrics and beautiful materials.

So here is some proof, that looking boring is the best, when done right. 2celine-summer2018-look17aceline-summer2018-look17bceline-summer2018-look10aceline-summer2018-look4aS18_JOOR41763_2000x143

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.

Looking festive and still individual! 3 looks to help you out!

Allgemein

Now that the festive season starts, we can all assure, that wearing green, gold and tartan is totally ok and even required. It’s not like wearing these kind of colour combinations is bad, i surely get crazy everytime i see red tartan blankets or socks. But we should still have the ambition to not look like predicted or at least not appear in a little black dress nor ugly sweater (which might be fun also!). It should not be too hard to stay true to your style, but still look festive. THATS TRUUE!   I created a few examples and tried to find as many sale items as possible. So here it goes!

This is for the more brave ones! Of course there needs to be one piece that reminds us of what we celebrate. Hence the proper classy cableknits and knitwear!
