Ready for spring but where is it?
Journelles is a newly launched German blog by my favourite fashion blogger Jessica Weiss. It has the right amount of fashion, interiors, design and beauty mixed with personal collages, styles and photographs. I love their citrus fashion collage.
I love ballerinas and I don’t like wearing high heels. So this is the perfect compromise between the two. The fact that it brightens up an autumn day with its bright red colour is a plus. I saw a girl wearing them the other day, they looked divine. There has been a lot of recent research in experimental social psychology on how clothes can affect our brain and change our perception of ourselves. I look forward to read more on the topic. Personally, bright colours always make me feel in a better mood but I rarely think they suit me. With these shoes however, there is no excuse.
COS has my favorite spring collection on the high street right now. Pastels mixed with neon yellow here and there. The materials are sublime and the colors unique. When you enter the store you are hit by the amazing color combinations that COS are so good at styling together. This collection is a winner.
I love H&M’s collaboration with Marni. Usually I wouldn’t queue for their designer collaborations but this time I most certainly will. Understated yet strong, classic cut meets tribal influence. I love it! For Marni, I can consider eating noodles for the rest of the month. The collection is available in selected H&M stores on the 8th March.
I had the incredible honor to have my picture (above) published on the Zara People October #3 street style website. For those of you who don’t know what it is – check it out here. Zara gives the opportunity to “normal” people who love shopping at Zara to publish a shot of themselves in an urban environment, wearing 2 or more of their designs. Judging from all the beautiful pictures that they have chosen so far, photography seems to matter equally as styling. And what I love the most about this platform is that it also offers an incredible opportunity for people from all around the world to showcase their work whether they love blogging, styling or photography.
I did most for fun (and a bit for money too as I was broke) and asked one of my good friends who likes taking pictures to shoot me outside one of my favorite shops in East London. It was a mild, sunny Sunday and it was the perfect light and mood for taking that picture. She took me by surprise when I wasn’t posing and the shot was born. And I did enjoy making it even though I also felt embarrassed by all the people who passed by on their way to Brick Lane market and wondered what the hell we were doing.
Anyways, I sent in my picture and only 2 weeks after, Zara called me to say they loved it and wanted to publish it. I was so incredibly happy to get that good news in the morning. And when I saw it on their website, I couldn’t believe it – it looked amazing. Same day I also got lots of new visits on my blog.
So with this post I would like to say THANK YOU ZARA and a warm WELCOME to all new readers!
I love this collection. Why? Simple design, pastel colours, silky materials and dreamy atmosphere. But most of all: clear violet, banana and peach sorbet associations, my favorite when I was little. This is what spring should look like. See the rest of the collection here.
