The Look:S.W.A.Y. - Little Swinging Skirts

No, I don't want to talk about th Pussy Cat Doll's song "Sway", today's issue are these little swinging skirts that you can see above on Whitney, Ashley, Chloe and Kate. No matter if with tights (for cold days) or without, these skirts look amazing. You can style them in many various ways:Whitney looks girly with her girly white blouse, Chloe very classy in her black/grey look, Ashley très cool with the wide shirt and sunnies and Kate is simply rockin' her skirt in an all in one black look.
I think I fell in love!

The Look:Special Footwear for Spring - Chloé Strappy Shoe Boots

When I saw those strappy boots from Chloé for the 1st time at the Spring '08 Ready-to-Wear-Show I was wondering about them and thought that don't look very comfy. I never would have thought that someone really would wear them but faulty thinking:Actress Kate Bosworth wore the special footwear on the airport (!!) and 'The Hills'-star Heidi Montag when she presented her own line at Kitson.If women go shopping and travelling with those boots they can't be so uncomfortable. Anyway I think they look only good on the runway and besides very very strange.

(By the way they cost 475€)

All my vintage bags

Here you can see one of my passions:Vintage bags.Even if I didn't wear all of them yet I adore their unique look.My favorite is the red one.After it was in repair for a long time I got "my love" finally back.This bag is awesome because it's a real eyecatcher and you can wear it as an across-body-bag or a clutch.I got them all from my mumy and her friends.Vintage pieces make every outfit special...
What do you think about them?

The Look:From Scotland to the World - Paisley Dresses

The paisley patterns always remind me to the cover of my grandma's chairs. Ok,that doesn't sound very good but anyway I like them. This year the bright patterns from the 19th century celebrate their comeback. The two Kates and world's most popular heiress are carrying their dresses on the street, but also at public appearances. I think you must be careful with this look because it can look like grandmomy's chair (Kate Bosworth) or like a Barbie (Paris Hilton). My favorite is Kate Hudson's because of the cut and the colors. If I'll find a cute dress I'd definately take it for summer,because it's so bright and just makes high spirits!

The Look:Do it yourself - Truncated Jeans Shorts

I remember last year when I cut a very expensive pair of jeans and my mother got crazy when she saw it so now here's a little letter to convince her:
Dear momy, you see I'm not the only one who likes to wear truncated jeans shorts. Nicole Richie, MK,Vanessa Hudgens and many other celebs wear them too and looks good.They're perfect for the beach with a top like Nicole wears it.A bit more urban and not only for hot summer days is the contrast with a long shirt with pushed up sleeves,a long filigree necklace and of course lots of bracelets.
I hope I could convince you and this year you won't be so upset when you'll see me in my cutty shorts.
Love Mimi

Beauty:Cute Present - Hair Bows

Maybe you already noticed that I'm a huge Walt Disney Film, especially of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Minnie's trademark is of course the bow in her hair but she's not the only one who likes these cute accessory: For example Lisa (left) and Agathe (middle). The two fashion blogger already showed what such a little bow can make. Bows remind me to the time when I was younger. I loved wearing them in my hair with a dress and my fine patent leather flats. Over the years my opinion hasn't changed much: I still love bows but I prefer them with skinny jeans now, well I'm not a little girl anymore. I found a few old ones from my momy and bought this black satin hairband from H&M (right). With bows in your hair you can feel for one day a little bit like daddy's little girl,even if you're big.

The Look:Patched up - Bags in the Patchwork-Style

The idea of matching different pieces of leather and drapery together was already established in the age of the old Egyptians.
Fergie, Lindsay Lohan and Victoria Beckham just discovered the new art of patwork: Designer Bags. Fergie and La Lohan showed off with a D&G-bag, Posh Spice with a Miu Miu XL-bag.
Those two juicy bags can give a boring outfit more liveliness.
I love the Miu Miu bag since I saw them in the campagne with Kirsten Dunst. Really want to have one like this...

The Look:Ready for a Jump - Black Jumpsuits

The Olsen-twins and Nicole Richie are ready for a big jump in their black all-in-one-shorts-jumpsuits.Ashley showed of in 2005 with a satin jumper and black boots made by Calvin Klein at his fashion show. Three years later her twin sister Mary-Kate attended the afterparty for 21 by The Cinema Society and Calvin Klein Jeans in the same jumper.Her clue: A hot pink belt - well as we see sisters share everything! Meanwhile It-girl Nicole Richie was running some errands in a very similar jumpsuit by Alexander McQueen in 2007.As MK she pimped it with a belt.
I really like those jumpsuits and think they're great piece for summer but anyway not a must-have. For me Nicole wore it better because the ones of MK and Ash is a way too big. Maybe you'll see me jumping in such a suit in the summer...

The Look:70's Revival - Bell Bottom Jeans

This summer fashion will make a little time travel back to the 70's when bell bottom/flare jeans had their big appearence.A few years ago the wide legged jeans already had a comeback but then they were displaced by skinny jeans.Mary-Kate Olsen showed off in 2006 with flare jeans, Posh 2006 and Nicole Richie recently.
We see: The flare jeans never really were gone from the fashion surface!
I'm gonna take my flare jeans out if it's warmer.My plan:Wear them in a total hippie look with sandals,a long batik or white shirt,many boho accesoires and a bright scarf on my head.So please summer hurry up a bit I want to feel groovy like a hippie...

The Look:Fashion Stars

I'm sure Karl Lagerfeld was sitting under the starry sky when he designed the Chanel Spring/Summer collection 2008.But Mister Lagerfeld isn't the only one who was inspired by the shiny little gas balls. Comrade Yves Saint Laurent shoes and necklaces pepped with synthetic stars.
As always La moss and MK show us how to wear the latest trend:As a overall or a simple marine blue blouse for the evening.Both outfits are not my favorite ones.They remind me a bit to a pyjama I had when I was about 4 years old.Nicky Hilton's neckholder dress is something I would wear.It looks very cute and is not too much!This fashion star goes definately to Miss Hilton...

P.S. Did you notice?You really learn something here at fashionsmoothie :)

The Look:Born to style wild - Leather pants

Rrrrr - Posh,Blake,Rihanna and Ashley (?) look like real rock-chicks in there tight skinny leather pants.All the ladies style the biker wear to other black clothes like jersy shirts,boots or leather jackets.
Victoria Beckham looks quit elegant with the Hermès bag,the heels and her blazer.Against,Rihanna is rocking with boots,a leo bag and a short leather jacket.Like always the mix makes it!
I'm 50 to 50 about this look. I like it on Ashley and Posh best.Blake Lively looks ok too but Rihanna went a bit over the top for my taste.
I guess you won't see me in leather pants on the street....
