Final Countdown

Happy New Year!

May all your wishes come true.

Thanks for such a nice year in blogging.

I know I haven't been a good blogger.

Enjoy the evening,



P.S. Actually it was my plan to post a few pics of my outfits today but I'm ill. Please excuse me for the last time this year. Instead I chose these pics that were taken vor "V"-Magazin that I totally love.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Here I am again crammed with red cabbage,turkey and crème caramel. Hopefully all of you had great holidays and got tons of nice presents. Besides many "smaller" stuff (H&M giftcard, money, bag etc.) Santa brought me a huge super chic notebook that seems to be even bigger than me. All in all Christmas eve was a bit strange this year since I wasn't in the mood at all, very calm but anyway enjoyable. I think Silent Night would be the perfect title for it ☺

What about you?How did you spent the holidays and what did you get?

In September I purchased three books of the series Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella at a garage sale. I just couldn't stop, because the books were too good and Becky Bloomwood (the main character) so amusing. Oh I love her!

You can't imagine how thrilled I was when I found out about the film. After watching the trailer and seeing these snaps I expect a funny, stylish film à la SATC. Anway I'm unsure if it's going to be good as the books but hope rests till the end....

Here's the trailer:

Enjoy the last holiday

Winterize your Jeans Shorts

Alexander Wang Fall 2008 RTW


Keira Knightley,Lilly Allen,Kate Moss,Katie Holmes

So here I am again - finally on holiday! Only 2 days to Christmas eve left and I haven't finished all my presents yet. Hopefully I'll today....

Wearing jeans shorts and tights underneath is currently loitering around. Whether at the Alexander Wang's Fall 2008 show, on the bloggers or the celebs everybody winterizes his jeans shorts. I liked it the most on Gala since she has wonderful legs and styled it perfectly. The variant with the wider shorts as seen at Alexander Wang (1st pic) also pleased me a lot.

Actually I'm (most times) totally into the tights+shorts combination but on me it looks aweful and I feel very uncomfy. I tried it often but the result never had been very satisfying. Well I guess I'll better leave this trend to the others...

What's your opinion?Hate it or love it, leave it or take it?

Happy "Christmas Countdown"



P.S. Sorry for the chaotic layout but my blogger is spinning!

Tights white as snow

I remember wearing white tights when I was younger. For the day I wore wool ones, for grave occasions silk ones. I guess white tights never got out of fashion but right now they're in again. No matter if on the streets, the catwalks of or at 'Gossip Girl' - the snowy tights are everywhere in various forms. As long as it's not this jabbing white I like nearly all especially the ones with a texture. The mean thing about these tights is the fact that they make your legs sometimes look awefully fat. Plus on some people they have this sanitary-stockings-effect (urrrgh). I hope I'm not one of these since I already spotted a few at H&M.

What are you thinking about the this look?Wearble or just aweful?

P.S. Only 13 days for christmas eve left and I haven't bought any presents yet.

On the streets:

On Gossip Girl:

On the runway:

Luisa Beccaria Fall 2008 RTW

Eley Kishimoto Fall 2008 RTW

Chanel Spring 2008 Couture

Alexander McQueen Fall 2008 RTW

Only 13 days for christmas eve left and I haven't bought any presents yet....

Chanel Pre-Fall 2009

Love it or hate it?
That's the question I asked myself when I start watching Chanel's Pre-Fall 2009 collection yesterday. I guess I'm something between and it's kind of love-hate relation. All in all Karl Lagerfeld didn't thrill me with his russian inspired look. 90% of the shown looks were a way too opulent for me personally, but anyway a few items really caught my eye and I'm sure they could make a fabolous outfit if styled a little more distreet. I totally fell in love with the classy black white dress which presents absolutely Chanel. 2nd thing I adored were the golden tights. I'm definately gonna look for a cheaper version.

Sure there were a few very Chanel-alike clothes however everything reminded me to Christian Lacroix. My conclusion: Not the best show but even though not aweful, but how could Chanel be aweful?!

Tell me your opinion ☺

Voilà un général

(click to enlarge)

During New York and Paris Fashion Week for spring/summer 2009's fashion Balmain and 3.1 Phillip Lim took us on a little journey through time by presenting monarchy-inspired military-jackets and vests. I like these a lot and the simple way both designers styled them is genius.

Mischa Barton didn't follow this examples: She combined her jacket at a red-carpet event with a golden headband and a fringe bag. Maybe she thought it would be nice to wear more than one trend all at once but honestly this is a little too much. Topmodel and fashionista Erin Wasson in contrast did an awesome job by wearing a short military-bolero with latex leggings in all over black. Chapeau!

Let's hope a Balmain one will fall from the sky otherwise
I'm on the prowl ☺

Any tipps where I could find a cheap one?I think vintage is the best way.

Well then I'm off to - tatatatatata - LEARN!

A bientôt mes chères

4 x inspiration

Gala Gonzales is one of my favorite fashion bloggers and a very cute young lady.I love her style and the way she pulls of current trends with her own note. A couple weeks ago she posted this breathtaking outfit.For me personally from head to toe a perfect outfit.

Alexa Chung is a real fashion icon.I adore her easy but stylish look and always feel very inspired by her.Today I found this pic of her at tfs and was thrilled:That oversized sweater dress is perfect for the current season and the colors match perfect together plus they make it interesting. The zipper detail adds a cool touch.

Alexander Wang's Autumn 2008 collection was one of the most populars and in my opinion it's absolutely true.The looks always inspire me for my daily outfits.

It has been a couple months since I found this picture on another blog. I loved his model's entire look from the first moment. Especially the extravagant hat took my eye and I thought it's very easy to copy.Well then it's my following DIY-project and on top of my to-do-list.
The "simple" Prada bag is gorgeous.

GLAMOUR "Women of the Year" Award 2008

Kate Bosworth.Emma Hemming.Debra Messing.Taylor Swift.

Natalie Portman.Tinsley Mortimer.America Ferrera.Jane Krakowski

Nicole Kidman.Fergi.Sarah Michelle Gellar.Selita Ebanks.

On Monday night it was time to nominate the GLAMOUR "women of the year" 2008 at Carnegie Hall in NYC.
Apart the hype on Obama's election the politic ladies Condoleezza Rice and Hilary Clinton wear honored with an award, likewise Nicole Kidman, Tyra Banks, Kara Walker and Maureen Chiquet. Except for a few 'rebels' nearly everyone showed up in a black or white dress. My clear favorite was definately Kate Bosworth's classy Chanel dress, followed by Nicole Kidman's embroidered L'Wren Scott robe.

What do you think about the looks? Agreed with my choice of favorites?

P.S. I'm totally sorry for not writing anything but as I already told you I took part in a musical at our school. Last night it was preview. Luckily everything went well and I totally enjoyed it.
Tonight the show goes on but before I'm going to the city, because I'm totally in need of something new. Please don't mind me.

Street Style Compensation

Hey guys,
I'm totally sorry for not posting anything the last couple days but school really took my last nerve and there wasn't time for anything else. After I finished my last class exercise for this week today I went to the cinema to watch High School Musical 3. All in all the film wasn't bad but didn't thrill me. Actually my plan was it to take some pics of what I wore but I had no time so I thought maybe I should post a little street style inspiration which's always good.

I wish I could keep on writing but unfortunately I've to change a dress for drama class. Guess I won't be posting much the coming days because everyday there are rehersals from 8.30 till night. Well monday it's preview time...

Please excuse me and rock the fashion world without me for a while

60s Icon Twiggy

Aloha everyone. Sorry for not posting the last days but school just started again and there's was aweful lot to do and over all learn. Fortunately it's friday and I can finally start over with a new post. The 60s fashion icon and topmodel Twiggy alias. Lesley Hornby has been one of my lovies for a couple years now so it's definately high time to write about her.

In 1966 she was discovered. Because of her tiny image (she weight only 90lbs/41kg) the 16 year old kept her childhood nickname Twiggy and became The Face of '66. One year later she arrived in New York and turned the whole fashion scene upside down. Even if no one believed, she became the leading supermodel, later also an actress and singer.

With her short adrogynous pixie hair-cut, the fake XXL-eyelashes, stylish outfits and of course unhealthy low weight she created a complete new look and became a style icon who was copied by millions of teens.

Today the british is 59 years old and has a few public appearances, f.e. in the America's Next Topmodel-jury.

For me Twiggy is a formative character for the world wide fashion. I love her dramatic eye make-up and short dresses. Twiggy was an idol for many young girls and so unfortunately her skinny shape.

What's your opinion on Twiggy? Is she a real style icon?

P.S. It was quite hard to chose only a few pics because there were so awesome ones.

Have a nice week-end and to some of you HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
