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:

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!

  1. The no-discussion-needed-let-my-style-talk LOOK!

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!

It’s not officially sale season, but anyway. We still found some!

Without starting with all that talk about how important shoes and handbags are and what good investments one can make with them, because you will wear them for ages and how they will always be classics, i will deny it straight forward. Actually there are no good investments with designer shoes.

No shoe can be worth 900$. I know it. It does not make any sense. Not to humankind.
Still, though. I do not write this stuff to be rational or reasonable.
The only reasonable thing is, buying them when they’re on sale.
Which is officially not the case right now, buuuut some shops started, so why wait and why talk more, just look at what i found. All under 500$.

3 ways to make your summer outfit winter appropriate

Allgemein

We are waiting for it the whole year. Since i am living in the northern hemisphere, we approximately calculate somewhat like 2-3 good weeks of summer. Well real summer i mean. The rest is usually a moody cocktail of cloudy, rainy, but sometimes also shiny weather, which makes you loose all of your optimism concerning wearing those satin leather slides you just got on a discount, but were still too expensive to tell your mum.
Of course going on holiday exists, but seriously, how long are you going to stay at that pool? Since there is no „i love to travel“ on my bio, this means 1-2 weeks.

Long story short. Go buy some stuff you can wear in summer, but ALSO in colder times.
1. Such as: a good midi skirt. Its a skirt right? So its providing you with air between your legs. That should be enough. Otherwise just wear some jeans beneath it, to make it weather appropriate. Some examples will follow.

2. Slides, you can also wear with socks. This does not suit to every kind of slide or mule in my opinion, but to most of them. Clash the styles, use thick wintery socks for your embroidered Dries Van Noten mules, wear shiny nylon socks with classic Slippers.

3. Sleeveless Tops. Even turtlenecks are in fact. And hey they would look great with that midi skirt and mules you just bought.
Wear an off-shoulder longsleeve top beneath it, when you’re scared of goose bumps.Or even a thick turtleneck, whatever you wear, it will look cool.

#1 Summer Sale is coming- what not to get now, but later.

Allgemein

The last thing i learned in marketing class was to not get your buyers used to the sales season.
But since we all know, that sooner or later these favorite 4 letters will reach us from everywhere in our incoming mailbox, we tend to wait.
And thats ok, if not even a must sometimes. Since i have a quite strange style compared to the masses ( like all of us, who like to deal with fashion as religion) it is possible to find cool things still left on the shelves.
Some shops like mytheresa, style bop, modaoperandi and the everlasting one on the outnet. I tried to compromise some of my favourites, which should not be too trendy nor lame. I picked some out of Net-a-porter and Trademark ( which have incredibly good things on sale right now) as a little inspo.

We just received the paycheck and Mid-Season sale starts- this can’t be a coincidence

Allgemein

Now that the first flowers start to bloom and the oh so loved insects start to swim in your glass of maracuja juice you just ordered 2 seconds ago, you realize that something is changing. Animals you thought were dead, come back. And thank god for that. We’re calling it spring. And just like a snake, which likes to get rid of his skin every now and then, we like to change our style dramatically or at least wear something that still can not be found in our closet. Good for us, that online shops like to get rid of their clothes as well. The Fast Fashion retailers seem to have a never ending season sale, where you sure might get some cool stuff to. But the good stuff still lies in the shelves of the big fishes.
Here some inspirations to get now:
I know its totally ridiculous, but i love anything with stars and planets so why not get this Valentino beauty at mytheresa?

P00150286--STANDARD

I’m still thinking to get these, because when would you not look like 1/2 horse 1/2 human and still be centaur cool? Just get them at stylebop.com if you want to join my hairy team!

Last, but of course not least and actually because i have no clue about how to create a  gallery with links, i would like to put emphasis on the following pair of not-skinny jeans. I need those Jonathan Saunders red flared pants, because i need to look like a more dramatic Robespierre. The Rachel Comey khaki x jeans are perfect for the upcoming weather paired with a mens shirt et voila! Get them at avenue32.com, which have a super big sale right now.
