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.

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
