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:

( from top left to right) Blazer H&M beige linen blazer, Blazer Zara metallic blazer, Blazer Zara coloured stitched blazer, ZenicaDress Sportmax Code, Web Dress Weekday beige web maxi dress, Satin Dress Bershka partly ruffled rosé satin dress, Black Dress Topshop Style Mafia puff sleeve midi shift dress, Striped Skirt Topshop , Patchwork Skirt Zara plissé patchwork skirt, Checked Skirt Zara 

 

 

Now that the highstreet-houses had enough time to copy. How much money is worth real design?

Allgemein

Do not ask your patent attorney. He will tell you how hard it is to protect your design. I just realized it today, now that the online shops are raising the number of their winter products.
Usually i recognize the copies with a mix of enthusiasm and happiness, but still questioning whether it is ok in that case or not, to „steal“ this design.
I mean, who even recognizes the copied pieces besides the fashion victims?
For others they just seem like the normal collection arriving to aw16.
But today, maybe the first time in history, i kind of felt sorry.
Not sorry for the companies, who still make enough money, even when getting copied.
But for the designers, the crew sitting behind all these ideas, projects and their working time to realize these designs. Does it make me want to buy the 1000 €  J.W. Anderson skirt instead of the 40 € Zara version? No. Does it make me not buy the Zara skirt? Yes.

On the other hand, if we just forget for a minute in what kind of crucial way these products are produced, fast fashion democratizes the consumption of designer fashion.
It gives you the opportunity to express yourself with these designs, even if you weren’t designated as a consumer. Who can tell the difference between a good mix of high-low fashion and an only high-end look? I guess nobody. So there is no difference anymore.
Everyones the same, so that the personal aspects in personalizing the fashion stands in the foreground.
To me, it is getting clearly more important to take design as itself more serious and question every copy i see. jwanderson-red-leather-skirt-with-buckle-product-0-502343890-normal73048803_99

Is Off-The-Shoulder OFF?

Allgemein

No! Who said it is? I just realized that there is a more sophisticated way to show your beautiful bare shoulders. The classic off the shoulder blouses are very sweet as well, but i like the upcoming trend a little bit more. Having a little bit of textile hanging on your wrist makes you look like a cool girl, but also a lady. Have a look on the upcoming pics and shopping advices. Of course i fell in love with the dress version, which i could get if i would sale my whole interior and my university diploma. Its Juan Carlos Obando. Damn your good.
Go get them inspos!
The navy silk dress Leandra Medine wore, is the aforementioned Juan Carlos dress, you can get it at netaporter for 1500 pounds, so well, lets skip to the other ones.

This blue one is sooo 1920, but still too naked for 1920, so you can wear it now. Its Self-Portrait and beautiful and worth its price in my opinion. Actually every dress from Self Portrait is wonderful, check it out immediately, but thats a different story.

The alternative that our Highstreet Fav’s please us with aren’t too bad either. I love the nude Zara dress for 80 bucks.
I bet there are a whole lot of more good dresses or tops in that style, tell me if you find any!

Everyday Buy/ Shoes that look like you know whos-the babouche

Allgemein

Here we have a few nice buys from our Highstreet Favourites, which will still make us able to pay tuition for the coming semester and wear shoes. I have seen many of these on many blogs already, but still am sure you won’t see too many of these on the streets. Even if you are oversaturated with looks and products on blogs, you usually do not get to see them on the streets, so even if you’re like…oh man everyones wearing it right now…think well yes…everyone on your instagram newsfeed.
But everybody outside will still be like, oh god what is she wearing again, is she Peter Pan?
Well, yes, i surely am.
