Yes or no?



monki socks + seven seconds shoes

I did this type of post before, last year. Looking back at what I asked you about...well, it looked pretty awful. I hope this won't repeat with this post.

So..question time:

Open toes/sandals + socks = Yes or No?

Would love to hear some of you guys' opinions ;)

Good as new?!


bianco booties

Ok, I admit - these are a bit worn out. But they're the best rediscovery I've made in my wardrobe so far. Bought them three years ago, I think, while visiting my cousins.
They're really comfy and they go so well with the late "bare legs + short skirt/shorts + heeled booties"-trend. Do you agree?

Inspiration: Glamour Italy






Glamour Italy July 2011

They've put such a gorgeously curvy woman on the cover - how cool is that?
I think the fashion shootings in the Italian Glamour are so different. It's always fun to look beyond borders for inspiration.

forever 21 crochet top // diy cycling shorts // converse shoes // h&m sunglasses // casio mini watch // mango bag

This is what I wore to Hollywood Boulevard/Walk of Fame on Monday- aka. the day I got sunburnt as badly as I haven't in a long time. At the F21 sale, I finally got my hands on a crochet top! They only had it in a medium, so it's more like a little dress for me, but that's cool.

Pictures of Hollywood to come soon!

h&m dress, straw hat // new look belt // primark sandals

Another LA-Outfit. I finally get the chance to sport some summer looks :) I wore this on Monday when we returned to Santa Monica and took a walk around Venice Beach. It's such a cool place, but frankly, there's so many hippies there! And by hippies, I mean people that smoke "medical marihuana" veeeeery casually. Maybe they should all move out to Amsterdam...
Whatever, they sell amazing jewellery such as turquouise rings and friendship bracelets over there. I'll show you what I bought another time, so stay tuned.

Santa Monica







Photos: me

Some photos from Santa Monica Pier and the beach. I didn't get to swim in the ocean yet, but I will! It's so nice to spend some time at the sea since I barely ever get to do that at home in Germany.
Hope you're all having a good time. See you soon!

h&m dress // primark sandals // diy earring

Hi, guys! How's it going? Let me just say how nice it is that the Americans think of internet-addicts like me and have free wi-fi in almost every spot in town. Loving it!
We took these pictures at the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday. It's such a beautiful place! We're definitely going back and then, I'll swim in the ocean :) I got sunburnt pretty badly, though. Ouch!

Hope you guys like the outfit. While packing, I figured California would probably be just the place to wear hippiesque outfits. Also, how do you like my 'nail design'? Got inspired to do this on the flight. As I'm wearing nail polish all the time and quickly get tired of colours/looks, this was a breath of fresh air. How do you like it?

Diary/Getting to L.A.






1. we were waiting for our connecting flight at Newark airport, basically around the corner from NYC. see the skyline?
2. first thing after landing was getting a Starbucks - obviously!
3. gotta love Dunkin Donuts, especially since Donuts go for $1 here...damn cheap!
4. L.A., here we come
5. the sky above..well, I have no idea - somewhere between NYC and LA. the clouds looked so great!

Yup, I made it to L.A. safely! Surprisingly, I'm not suffering from jetlag at all. I'll post more photos very soon, taking tons of pictures every day.
See you!

PS: I'm posting lots on my Twitter, so follow me if you're into it ;)

Off to L.A.

As you read this, I'm probably just about to board my plane to the US. I'm super excited! There will be a bunch of schedules posts going online while I'm away. I'm not sure if I'll be able to post from L.A.

See you soon!

August 17, 2011

Looking forward to...

Just a bunch of things I'm looking forward to as I pack for my trip to L.A. My flight's tomorrow morning and I'm very excited. I've got a couple of posts scheduled for you guys ;)

weekday sweater // zara pants // new look belt // casio mini watch

A quick shot of today's outfit, went to the cinema to for a press screening of the "Glee" 3D movie. That was odd... Sorry, I've neglected the blog a bit, but I'm busy organising some stuff for my trip on Thursday.
See you!

Diary/3


1. the breakfast/bruch I made for the boy and me some time ago. love cooking for him!
2. 'fritz kola' is a special independent Coke brand from my hometown, tasty!
3. got my first US dollar bills. my dad gave them to me, had forgotten about them- they lay somewhere in the back of the apartment for almost exactly 20 years (from before I was born). crazy, huh?
4. my new calendar from Letts of London. i love it! i'm actually the kind of person who can't live without a planner, i freak when i can't plan my days

Another diary post, in a new/old look. Do you like it?

Rediscovered


A while ago I came across this ring that my mum gave me a really long time ago. I must admit, I had forgotten I even had it, but when I cleaned out my jewellery drawer I rediscovered it.
It's so tiny I can only wear it on my pinkie, but I think it's really pretty. What do you think?

h&m blazer, top // levi's curve id jeans // snefter ring // diy earring

That's what I wore today/yesterday (depends on where you live...). I love the accessoires on that outfit! I think it's the first time that I ever really like my own diy. And that ring is just gorgeous- still in love with it! It just makes every outfit look so chic and stylish, don't you think?

The weather has reached the top of bad- it's super rainy and pretty cold most of the time. Oh, not to mention the wind. I'm lucky enough to escape this weather soon.. Just one more week till I get on my plane to L.A. I still can't really believe it. It's so surreal. I know some people travel to far distances like that pretty often but for me it's still pretty much of a big deal. My first time to cross the pond. I believe that while I'm still young I should try to see and explore as much of the world as I can.

DIY: feathers pt 2



The whole bunch of feathers I bought for DIYs is lying on the table right next to my laptop. So I couldn't keep my hands to myself, I had to create some more lovely jewellery with them.

I grabbed an old multi-chain necklace (does anyone still wear those?) and literally tore it apart. You can see the outcome above...
Photos of these babies in action will soon be up!

Soap & Glory



second photo by PR Newswire

Last week I was invited to a beauty breakfast with Soap & Glory since they're launching a new product line. I honestly felt so intimidated at that event. It was way more major than I would've thought. There was this Vogue editor there, for example. I was like "yeah..well, just ignore me, I'm probably just in the wrong place". I actually sat next to the founder of Soap & Glory. I just sat in silence and admired her british accent.

I took home a bag full of products from the brand: shower gel, scrub, body butter and body spray/fragrance. Aww my gawwd I just LOVE the smell! And I'm not saying this because I got the products for free. I love them! Using them everyday. I'd love to get them in travel size - does anyone know if they even come in travel size?

They also installed a huge sculpture of a bathing woman in the Alster, the lake here in Hamburg. (just look at the second photo) Isn't that such a nice PR idea?

gina tricot jumper // h&m shorts // casio mini watch

Just another black-on-black outfit I wore to work. I love shorts + jumpers! Those two items are actually from last year or so. The idea to wear them again came up in the night (like a lot of outfit-ideas do..some are actually pretty crazy, but that's another story). Do you like it?

New in: YSL arty look-alike

Sometimes I just go with the flow... And I couldn't resist the intriguing looks of YSL's arty ring. But, seriously, $150 for fashion jewellery?! I found quite an amazing fake online though. After almost two weeks, my ring arrived in my mail yesterday. I have to say that I'm rather pleased with it. The quality is satisfying, the size is perfect and as for the looks..well, that's what the photo is for ;)

I ordered my ring from Snefter and it cost $35 + delivery, shipping worldwide!! (and I didn't have to pay customs, if you wanna ask) They also offer more nice jewellery and a whole bunch of different colours of the faux YSL arty ring.

You can get a discount of 10% if you order in August and use the code "CINJA10"

HERE's your gateway to the rings. Enjoy!

Inspiration: Feathers

I told you I had loads of feathers left from my latest DIY. So, does anyone have any tips, ideas, inspiration...? Feel free to leave a comment with a link or a photo :)

h&m top // levi's curve ID jeans // casio mini watch // bracelets were gifts/souvenirs

Doing my best to keep up the promises on posting more outfits in August! I don't have room to shoot full-body photos, so I can't really show you what shoes I wore. I wore these babies for the first time and they looked so amazing! And they're comfy, too. Yay! Was a rather simple outfit, but I think that bunch of bracelets (+ the shoes!!) really spiced it up. What do you think?
