Gotcha!






I went on a hunt and I got exactly what I was looking for! I had exactly one hour in between lectures to scoop into town, and luckily that was one hour after the shops had opened, so I got every piece I had on my wishlist from the FAA collection. Has any of you gotten your hands on the collection yet?

Shorty




Got my favourites from the H&M FAA collection yesterday. I had a really stressful day, so shopping was just the compensation I needed. I'll show you all I got later. First, these amazing shorts. Wore them today, but neglected taking pictures :/ If you intend to buy them: They're really really short indeed (as you can see in the picture) and I had to buy them one size bigger. Felt a little naked from time to time, but I love them still!

Jumper, top, jacket H&M / Pants, Bag Zara / Watch Fossil / Shoes Converse

I'm surprised about how nice the hedge came out in these photos. Seems like my good old camera is good for something after all! Hope you like these pics, the boyfriend insisted on taking more face-shots, his argument being "A lot of people have fashion in common, it's your face that makes you unique" (quite the wise man!), but I ended up smiling stupidly in those (like in the last one, ahem), so they'll remain private. Maybe next time, babe! ;)

DIY: collar necklace




Remember the shoulder cut-outs top I DIYed recently? The embellished parts I cut out were used to create a lovely collar-type necklace. I just cut off the extra fabric and sewed both parts onto a fabric tape. Voilà! You like?

Diary 05/2012




Disneyland memorabilia / Posing with my brother and the boy / Creative way to serve a cocktail / A walk by the harbour / Beautiful tulips / Cupcakes I made for Easter / Outtake... / A little bit of drugstore shopping / I wanna wear these so bad, but the weather doesn't agree / Another outtake

Sponsored Video: River Island Vogue Off

This post is in German, sorry!


Wer mein Blog bereits länger verfolgt, hat sicher gemerkt, dass ich eine Vorliebe für britische High-Street Marken habe. Und leider gibt es immer noch viel zu wenige davon hier bei uns in Deutschland... Zum Glück kann man ja aber mittlerweile so gut wie alles online bestellen.

River Island ist eine dieser Marken - tolle Teile zu guten Preisen. Die Kollektionen gibt es glücklicherweise bei Asos. Wer sich bis zur Lieferung ein wenig die Zeit vertreiben will, kann das mit der "Vogue Off" App tun, die River Island jetzt via Facebook gelauncht hat. In der App sind verschiedene Models zu sehen, denen ihr einfach und schnell euer Gesicht (oder das eines Freundes/einer Freundin) "aufsetzen" könnt. Dann wird losgetanzt! Es kann zwischen verschiedenen Tanzstilen gewählt werden, es gibt sowohl männliche als auch weibliche Models. Dabei wird natürlich auch die aktuelle River Island Kollektion präsentiert. Wenn euch die Outfits gefallen, geht's danach gleich weiter in den Shop.

Im Video zur App könnt ihr einen Eindruck von der App bekommen:


Die App gibt's hier auf Facebook. Viel Spaß damit!

DIY: shoulder cut-outs





Here are the details of my latest DIY. You've seen me wear the top here. I found the jumper in my "sell/donate" pile, I couldn't stand the embellished shoulder-thing anymore. But why not just cut out the glitz? I kept the shoulder details and did another DIY with them - to be seen here soon!
So this one was really simple, just cut it with scissors. I really like the "raw" look of the cut hemline. How about you?

Skirt Sparkle&Fade via Urban Outfitters / Top DIY / Faux leather jacket, rings H&M / Shearling vest 2two / Boots Akira

I really really loved wearing this outfit! Got the skirt recently and I did have second thoughts about it, but now I'm just really happy I bought it. Also, I DIYed the shoulder-cut-outs of the top, more on that soon! Hope you like the look. Happy Monday, all!

Blogger inspo: LAfromlasblog


all photos via la's blog

The time has come again to introduce to you yet another of my favourite blogs. This blog is by a gorgeous young lady from Spain whose style I really adore. Her outfits are always edgy and diverse, and franky, with that body I believe she could pull off anything. She has also recently started her own fashion business, High Heels Suicide, selling nicely printed tops (and I hear it's going quite well, so muchos congrats!).
This blogger darling has several plusses on her side: firstly, where she lives it's always a couple degrees warmer than in cold central Europe... So, she provides a real summer fashion splurge! Her photos are always fun to look at, especially as a distraction from the grey weather we get around here lately. On another note, she usually posts several times a day and there's at least one outfit per day. It just never gets boring! Definitely one of my daily reads and happily pinned looks on Pinterest.

Neon

I don't mean to turn this blog into a haul blog, so excuse me for sharing some new items twice this week. I picked up these two neon bandeau bras at H&M. They'll be perfect for summer to peek out under tank tops. What do you think?

Parka jacket, pants and top H&M / Shirt Urban Outfitters / Boots Akira / Bag Zara

Yup, I'm wearing glasses! Something happened to my eye on Sunday - a blood vessel popped and now there's this huge, scary-looking blood stain in it. (It sounds and looks worse than it actually is!) So I decided to give my eye a chance to recover and not wear contact lenses. And since I'm practically blind without them, I have to wear my glasses now. I'm getting sick of them, though, as they cause me headaches every day... Also, I'm not sure if they look good on me at all..?

'Nuff babbling. Happy Friday!

Wanted: H&M Fashion Against Aids



Anyone out there who does not love this collection?
My wishlist might be a little utopian since I know there are loads of girls lusting after those pieces. But I honestly have to get my hands on those shorts. They are plain gorgeous!

New in: the shoes



I'm sure you've seen these shoes on plenty of blogs by now, as have I. When buying fashion, I actually don't care a bit about how many people wear an item or who bought it before me. In the end, we'll all still be individuals, right?

One thing about reading blogs is that nice beautiful things get rubbed under your nose constantly. So seeing these shoes everywhere online felt like someone teasing me with a bar of chocolate non-stop - there comes the inevitable moment where you just grab the thing! That's what happened when I was in town just when the shops opened their doors this morning. I might also have taken home a supernice pair of shorts, too. I really had to hold myself back since I fell in love with the whole collection instantly, really. Who's with me on that?

DIY: friendship bracelets




The friendship bracelet trend is the perfect opportunity to get down to some good old DIYing, isn't it? I recently found a book with all the different 'techniques' that I used when I was a kid. I don't know if I'll wear all of the results of my crafting, but it sure is fun making the bracelets. Rather relaxing, actually. I have some more DIYs in the pipeline (very unlike me!), so stay tuned!

Also, Happy Easter to you guys! Hope you're having a great weekend with your folks, I'll sure be having a food overdose here soon...

A few visual impressions of my weekend at Disneyland Paris.

I'm back



Yes, I am alive. We came back in the middle of the night on Sunday. I had to work all day on Monday, from dusk till dawn really (btw my new job is really nice thus far, thanks for all the sweet wishes!). And yesterday, uni started again. So there was practically no time left for blogging. I still have a huuuge to do list to get down to, so the long Easter weekend comes in really handy for me.

On to the photo: You see me in front of the Disney castle I'm sure you all know. I know the sunlight is all in my face, but whatever.... We had a really nice weekend at Disneyland Paris, it's like this parallel world that is just one big movie scenery. It totally made me forget about everything else. Really relaxing before a week full of stress! I think everyone should have a little Disneyland in their lives, something that isolates them from all the stress of the 'real world'. I'll leave you with these thoughts for now. More photos are to come very soon, promise!

Blogger inspo: COTTDS


all photos via cottds

Since I've recently removed my blogroll from the sidebar, I'm now introducing a 'new' way to share my favourite fashion blogs with you. Here we go...

'COTTDS' (Come Over To The Dark Side we have candy) is really one of my favourite blogs and has been a part of my daily-reads list for a while now. If you follow me on Pinterest you've probably noticed that I've been collecting her outfits in my inspiration folder almost religiously. I love how 27-year old Dutch blogger Cindy makes basics look amazing and still incorporates the latest trends into her wardrobe. Also, she loves black and leather - which is never wrong if you ask me. She's been inspiring me a lot lately with her style and, judging by the amount of repins I got on Pinterest, many of you feel the same...
