Outfit: The White Trend at Selfridges – Get The Look

IMG_6463a

It’s the colour trend this season: white! A simple, but effective colour. It adds something very sophisticated to ever outfit. Selfridges has chosen the white colour trend as its first seasonal commandment, and so have I. Why not wear head-to-toe white when you can? I’ve chosen two outfits. The first one is a white maxi dress combined with a cardie by H&M, a white pearl necklace and leather bracelet, my Chanel bag and light pink heels. For the second outfit, I’ve changed the dress to a shorter one in which I look a bit like a snowflake. I’ve also chosen white tights to go with that dress, and with the pink shoes I think the outfit looks really great. You can get the whole look at Selfridges.

A Little Bejewelled – Thomas Sabo & Vivienne Westwood

I’m one of those people who think you can never wear too many ‘anything’. Replace the ‘anything’ with whatever you like. You can never wear too many hats, necklaces, bracelets, hair bows and so on. It of course doesn’t really work with just anything. You can’t wear more than two shoes (though you can wear a shoe charm on your bracelet, like the one in this post, additionally to your shoes). What I want to say is that most of the time I can’t decide what to wear so I just wear a lot of stuff at once, especially if it’s jewellery. Which is the reason why I think charm bracelets are one of the best inventions ever. I got this Thomas Sabo charm bracelet and the three charms for my birthday and I can’t wait to add more charms to it. I’d like to have charm bracelets from all kind of brands and designers. For example I would love a Lulu Guinness charm bracelet with lots of little lips and rose basket charms.

Let Them Read Books

It’s so much fun to do a photoshoot! I’ve done some professional ones, but it’s even more fun when you do make-up and styling and take the photos on your own. Unfortunately I don’t have any talented friends who can take pictures of my outfits, so I have to use the self timer, which is a real pain.

My favourite pictures during those photoshoots are the close-ups I can take of whimsical things like necklaces, shoes, Fabergé eggs or the bow on my over the knee socks.

Watching the movie ‘Marie Antoinette’ with Kirsten Dunst, I was inspired to do a Marie Antoinette – style photo post.

I’m wearing a 60s white wool coat, handmade by my grandma, a Vivi Fashion by Rocco Maccuro shabby chic dress, River Island over the knee socks, and a pink faux pearl necklace I recently bought.

Berlin Fashion Week – Ethical Fashion Show, GREENshowroom and Froschhammer & Rosenvogel meets Vaporetta

I was invited to the Ethical Fashion Week at the ewerk as well as the GREENshowroom and show in the Hotel Adlon Kempinski during Berlin Fashion Week. I was given a press pass and was really looking forward to both events.

The GREENshowroom and show took place in the suites of Hotel Adlon and is the biggest ‘green luxury’ event in Berlin. Press and buyers could view fashion and accessories by 25 international and national designers. The catwalk showed designs by Anne Gorke, Edelziege, RoyalBLUSH, Ika Babel and many more. The events showed us that green fashion is indeed en vogue.

There even was a (environmentally friendly) shuttle service between the Hotel and the ewerk so you didn’t even have to walk.

The salon show was the highlight of the event. Edelziege:

The Ethical Fashion Show wowed with 57 international exhibitors such as KOMODO, Studio JUX, Fairtrade and MR Creation.

Another showroom I visited, was the Froschhammer & Rosenvogel meets Vaporetta showroom. The designer, Isabella Pikart, told me about her collection ‘L’Histoire de Mimi Cri’, a ring collection made entirely of porcelain, all of which are limited to 32 pieces. My favourite ring is the Ouro Branco, made of snow white porcelain and partially gold-plated. They also were the nicest people I talked to during Fashion Week.
Thanks to everyone involved for the great experience I had at Berlin Fashion Week!

Berlin Fashion Week – Toast&Jam Vintage Fashion Fair and Show

The Toast & Jam vintage fashion fair and show was one of the events I was looking forward to most. Now guess why! Right, because it’s VINTAGE fashion! I do have a thing for all things, vintage, old, very old..and Stone Age. Haha. No, but I love old stuff because I have the feeling there’s a great story behind every old dress, shoe etc. And of course they look nice! There were so many amazingly styled and dressed people at the vintage fair, I even felt underdressed.

With exhibitors such as Etsy, Veist Kleidergeschichten, Mayflower Vintage, Class of Berlin and Memory Vintage, everyone could find something to buy.

The show was the best at the whole Fashion Week in my opinion.

I love the shoes in the picture above!

Again: Great shoes!

A weekend at Berlin Fashion Week

Berlin Fashion Week was a kind of surreal experience for me and – surprise, surprise – not all glamorous. I’ve been to Berlin only a few times and usually had a car at my disposal; not this time however. When I got there, I first had to find the next U-Bahn or S-Bahn (tube) station to get to my accommodation, which happened to be almost impossible. It was 7pm, very hot, I had no idea where I was and – worst of all – my phone’s battery was running low. Very glamorous…! Anyway, I somehow did find my accommodation and almost immediately fell asleep.

I had a lot of time for sightseeing, in spite of my pretty tight show and showroom schedule. My feet were very glad when I sat down in Starbucks in front of the Brandenburg Gate (right opposite the Hotel Adlon where the GREENshowroom and salon show took place, which will get its own blog post).

Above you can see the the outfit I was wearing. It looked way too French for Berlin, but I really wanted to wear the beret. Haha. My Lulu Guinness lips clutch was a great ‘companion’ at Berlin Fashion Week too!

More street style pictures in the Showroom magazine by The Sartorialist

I went to several showrooms and shows and all in all really enjoyed the Fashion Week. Actually I wanted to go ‘street style photo hunting’ on Saturday, however all the Fashionistas were hiding in their hotel rooms because of the heavy rain.

I’m going to write 2 or 3 more blog posts about showrooms, shows and the Ethical Fashion Week this week. The first one will be about the GREENshowroom, salon show and Ethical Fashion Week; one will be about the showrooms and the vintage fashion fair and then I’ll probably also do one about some other shows.
