NO NEED TO FEEL COLD THIS WINTER

Ifeelused Vest&Shirt/H&M Denim/Primark Heels,Sunnies&Bag/Fossil Watch
{OOTD} In days like this I really don't feel like winter is coming back. At least I hope it doesn't! *sigh* The last week has been quite warm for December and I wish it would stay that way - yes also in Berlin, where I am headed next this Friday morning. But as for today I enjoy taking photos of my outfits not having to wear a coat and actually not feeling cold! WIN So here is one of my favorite outfits so far with lots of vintage pieces I recently purchased! I hope you like the photos as much as I am :)

WE ALL BEGIN AS STRANGERS

photo by Isabella Seibt
DETAILS. This must be one of my most favourite outfits so far. I am so much into loose men shirts and vests lately, and when I found the amazing pieces I wear here at the Miista sample sale a couple of months ago I just had to buy them. More photos coming soon. Stay tuned!

NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST.

Coat Vintage/Jumper Vintage/H&M Ripped Denim/Primark Scarf,Shades&Bag  
Wandering around the streets of London. My favorite thing to do on free days and especially on Sundays, is to walk around London and explore places I rarely go to. I don't know if the writer in me is speaking, but I find great pleasure in just looking at pretty streets, great buildings and beautiful parks to find more inspirations for my writing (apart from the blog). On Sundays me and my sister normally go to the beautiful and famous Columbia Road flower market together and have lunch after, before our ways. Yesterday I happened to end up in Mayfair again. I walked around Dover Street and just let my mind wander and enjoyed the good weather we have for end of December. These photos were taken unintentionally really but I love how they very much reflect my mood yesterday and every weekend really. What do you guys love to do when you actually have the time? :)

OBJECT OF DESIRE




OFFICE. Recently seen on my babe Gala Gonzalez, I have been craving these boots since then. But to be honest, I spend so much money on shoes (yes I admit it!!!) But I really love them, so I am getting them anyways - next time I will resist the temptation. Yeah sure....! I actually haven't seen them in my local Office store so I will have to order them online. The question now though is which one to get? Decisions, decisions..... Simple black ones or black-floral ones? HELP!!!

SERGE DeNimes YEAH BOI!

SERGE DeNIMES. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I checked out my boy Oliver Proudlock's pop up shop on Dover Street today. You all know him from Made in Chelsea - probably most famous for his glasses and super cool shirts! He founded Serge DeNimes a contemporary brand in 2011. He launched the brand with 9 limited edition t-shirts, each individually dyed and incorporating 4 layers of silkscreen, printed on lightweight soft cotton. I loved every single one of them but especially fell for the Lil Weezy - The Good Life tee and literally ALL the jumpers! The pop up shop is still open for a last day tomorrow - for all of you who haven't been YOU HAVE TO GO. You might even bump into Proudlock himself ;)

RANDOM INSPIRATION: Carolina Engman

 INSPIRATION C.E. I came back from Paris on Monday this week (missed my train - because I spent too much time on the Champs-Élysées haha) and been working crazy plus, now I got sick -  probably had to happen after the past super busy weeks....! Paris was amazing but before you guys get to see my post on my great weekend in paris, some inspirations first. The beautiful Carolina Engman of Fashionsquad and her very 'swedish' cool yet chic sense of style. Definitely one of my favourite fashionbloggers.

PARIS MON AMOUR

PARIS. Not long now guys! One more day and it's time for me to leave London and spend an amazing weekend in Paris with my best friend! I can't tell you how excited I am guys. Woop woop It's going to be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G :D I was told it is even colder than London right now, but I don't care - I am just so happy to finally be there, it's my first time to see the City of Love. I will wrap up in thousand layers, that should do it right? Has anyone of you been there before? Oh are you from Paris? Any places I MUST see? 

P.S Today I had a great breakfast/business meeting with the FantasyShopper team and the adorable Vani from Chopstick Panorama. The post will probably be up after Paris as I am just super busy right now. Stay tuned!

{OOTD} OH LA-LA

OH LA-LA. I love bright and bold colours, especially in winter when everything and everyone is walking around. in black and grey. I like putting on some colour so that summer can hurry up hihi So when I went to the Mawi Sample Sale I opted for this pink skirt I've actually never worn before. I love how it shapes my waist! Don't you? And how cool is my 'OH LA-LA' jumper huh? :D

Hope you enjoy them!

LONDON BLOGGERS MEET UP

MEET UP NIGHT. So as I told you I went to a super fun Meet Up this week with loads of amazing Bloggers from London including the one and only Jai'me of Boy Meets Fashion ! The event took place at The Bumpkin, a very well chosen venue in Notting Hill! But not only we Fashion bloggers came together, Diana the amazing organizer of this fantastic night invited many people from the Fashion industry, including many fashion designers. We all got the chance to connect in terms of guest blogging and collaborations. *successful night* The very funny and talented Travis Lee Street, not only co-founder of the fashion discovery service ShopOfMe but also founder of the culture&fashion blog COMEINTOLAND + director of Applaud Social, gave a very informative talk on how to become better and bigger in the Bloggersphere! Unfortunately we didn't have the best shooting conditions so here is a little collage of my night at the London Bloggers Meet Up with filled with fashion, yummy food, good music and inspiring conversations.

THE FRENCH MEET THE AMERICAN: Alexander Wang for Balenciaga

Alexander Wang x Balenciaga. As probably all of you know Alexander Wang has been confirmed as Balenciaga's new creative director! How amazing is that? The beginning of a wonderful american-french relationship I would say! I am actually way too happy about this, did I really like Nicolas Ghesquière  reign.... No hard feelings though, massively talented Alexander  Wang will do a great job!

KARL LAGERFELD: The Little Black Jacket


THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET. A few weeks ago I went to the Saatchi Gallery and was amazed by the gorgeous photographs Karl Lagerfeld took of various characters from the fashion industry as well as film and music. The exhibition was dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld's latest book, 'The Little Black Jacket'. I took loads of photos because I literally loved every single photo Karl took -  he is genius! One of my most favorite though was the photograph of the very talented Elle Fanning in a flower headpiece, positioned rather vulnerable, but oh so beautiful! 

I put together a small collage of the ones I loved most, for you! How do you like the photos?

SNOWPR PRESS DAY


PRESS DAY. I was happy when I got invited to the press days of SnowPR here in London this week. I had the best time checking out all the SS13 collections of brands such as Kaleidoscope, Helen Steele , Forever Unique and Ilse Jacobsen. My most favourite though was Baum und Pferdgarten, because of the really cool designs and great use of pastel colours. I even got my nails done with the most amazing velvet manicure (YES guys velvet!!!) How cool is that? You can see a photo of it and many others on my Instagram @minnieknows - follow me there for all my updates :)

There Are No Red Lights In Paradise

Found this amazing collage on Anouska's cute blog! I am in love with it, primarily because I love hats and the colour red/burgundy tones for autumn. :) The booties are so classy and I don't think I need to mention a word on that super chic black bag! Unfortunately I don't know where the items are from but I am sure you can find similar to those in any high street store (H&M, Zara, Mango etc.) I for my part AM IN LOVE! What do you think of the combination? What's your colour must for autumn? :)

Lazy Sunday in London


        Vintage dress/ Zara coat/ Primark flats/ Primark bag /River Island hat/ ModCloth sunnies



Lazy Sunday - I had such a great relaxing Sunday morning. I was quite lazy, but still managed to go to the flower market on Columbia Road (quite famous and very popular)! If you're ever in London you must visit it and get yourself some lovely flowers. I did not bring my camera, as you can see my bag was quite small. So here are some snap shots of what I was wearing (my new and amazing coat I just bought from Zara) and of the amazing roses me and my sister bought. Aren't they just beautiful?

CRAZY IN LOVE


Home Sweet Home - I am back in London! Finally yes we can say that people :D I landed on Tuesday night. After being bedridden due to the worst cold I ever had, I finally managed to go to Uni ( I missed my first 1 1/2 weeks -.-). After my class, I just had to do a little shopping haha Result: these babies! I found them in Primark, such a bargain. What do you think of them? I am in love with the studs, such a cool accent to these simple boots! They are already my favourites for autumn! Sorry for the bad quality of this photo, it's from my Instagram @minnieknows 

p.s. Can you let me know in a comment on my previous post what you think of the genius idea of Blogger's Wardrobe ? :)

If I had a boyfriend: BLOGGER'S WARDROBE

Why the caption you ask? Well well fact is, if I had a boyfriend (yeah guys are you dissapointed ?) Bloggers Wardrobe would definitly be my little secret and this innovative, two-in-one creation of a trench would be all I would think of. Okay Let me tell you the truth, it is all I can think of! :P I am in love. Not only with this Tiger of Sweden cropped women’s leather jacket, but more importantly with BLOGGER'S WARDOBE!

BLOGGER'S WARDROBE for me is the best idea so far, that had been come up with for us Bloggers to work and build up a close relationship with brands we love. Isn't this what we all want to achieve with our Blogs? I say YES! I love blogging and sharing my outfits, inspirations and everything about fashion I love with you guys (you might have reconized it ha) Blogger's Wardrobe makes it for possible for YOUR favourite bloggers to bring close to you new amazing brands, they identify themselves with and you might like.

These are my most favourite brands that are represented on BW:  Tiger of Sweden, where the Trench/Leather jacket above is from. Not only because I love Sweden (especially the beautiful city of Stockholm)! It simply reflects the Scandinavian style perfectly, clean cuts, basic colours and I especially value their close collaboration with the best fabric mills available by which the develope their own fabric designs that create the brand’s uniqueness.  The other brand I adore is Regina Design, also swedish-based which was founded in 2003 and specialises in womens clothing. Other than Tiger of Sweden, this brand mixes different materials, colours and prints and I LOVE PRINTS (you might as well already know)! Inspired by vintage clothing and with very feminine silhouettes Regina Designs makes every woman feel special. I am not from lovely Sweden but still,  I am allowed to be a little obsessed right? :D

YES YES YES: I know you want it! To join Click here :)

LFW: Throwback Monday, yes not Thursday!


FW Throwback - After constantly reading, hearing and of course seeing all the        amazing news about Fashion Week in New York, London and Milan I just couldnt't help myself (primarily because I'm still so depressed I couldn't make it to Milan this time although I was invited and looking forward to it for ages) to post one of my favourite outfits during FW in London AW12. I had to make this depressing time somehow right. Actually, now I kind of realize it only makes me more sad browsing through my photos, because LFW was so amazing and I had the best time at Somerset House! Anyway I will do my best to attend again next year :) Until then, what do you think of my outfit for day?....ermm I actually forgot what day of LFW that was! Ha

p.s. Next up, STREETSTYLES. Why I haven't written a post about it yet you ask? No idea.
