Olivia Palermo dressed pretty well this week. She wore two outfits, matching the colors Navy Blue and Black, a combination which I personally LOVE! You can’t go wrong with Navy and Black, I also really like her overknees and the striped jacket, I really wanna go through her wardrobe and steal some things, I’m sure she wouldnt even notice. One thing though that I hate about her style are those huge bling bling earrings that she always wears, they make her look so much older than she is (she is 23!), just take them off, Olivia!!!
This is the first sneak peek of this year’s Victoria’s Secret holiday commercial, without sound because it hasnt even aired on TV yet. What we can see is a very different commerical, looks nothing like christmas, but more like a Bond-Girl/Circus theme. Neither Heidi nor Adriana are in it because of their pregnancy, but four newbies are there: Chanel Iman, Lindsay Ellingson, Rosie Huntington and Candice Swanepoel. To me Chanel doesnt fit in and looks totally out of place, Lindsay, Rosie and Candice look very good though. I have to see the official version with sound and in HQ to really judge it, but so far I am not that impressed, I am missing that christmas vibe, hence “HOLIDAY commercial”. Anyways, here it is, credit to Lima-Fans, tell me what you think about it….
I found this picture on the internet and this girl is wearing a skirt that I have too. It’s a black studded skirt from H&M and now the funny thing… she is wearing it upside down! Meaning, all the studs at the bottom in this pic should be where her waist is. Now that made me think… does she know? Sure she does, and if so, is it possible to wear it like that without having the skirt drop to the floor? Did she just wear it like that for the picture? and why? So studded skirt girl, if you read this, lemme know ; )
Btw, I also like to wear that skirt with a simple white T-Shirt : )
Today you get a random thoughts post from me. I am not really motivated at the moment. We just switched to winter time which means the sun goes down around 4.30 pm now which is kinda frustrating. Unfortunately I don’t like to read books so what do I do when it’s dark and rainy outside and I don’t have anything to do? Yes, I love to read fashion magazines but that can only keep me busy for so long. Lately, I found myself reading random blogs and I really like those who are not only about fashion, but more like a scrapbook of people’s thoughts and inspirations or simply pretty pictures. I found this picture above on one of those blogs and I like it a lot because everyone can interpret it as they want. You could say “Wow, look at this bag! What a fashionista this must be!” Or you could say “Wow, this girl seems lonely, maybe she gave her heart to someone and had it broken”. I personally believe it’s the second thought. Looking for pictures like that is definitely more interesting than watching TV. I think TV is going downhill, it’s neither creative nor interesting anymore. There’s nothing better than talking to friends or people you love when you have time though. It is more satisfying, exciting and makes time go by faster than any magazine or blog … unfortunately. I hope to find motivation again soon or for it to find me.
Last night I went to the Createurope Fashion Award Show in Berlin. It was pretty much what I expected. Typical Berlin underground we’re-too-cool-for-school-fashionistas everywhere, a big factory hall or something like that with a nice long runway and huge TV screens on the walls. Lots of oh so fashionable people with free drinks in their hands were chatting, standing around or looking at the posters of the 30 international designers. After about 1,5 hours the fashion show started. 180 outfits were to be seen, a little bit too much unfortunately. You could clearly see how people got more bored and distracted after about half of the fashion show. Anyways, except for that it was quite nice, lots of talented designers and some really impressive creations. There were 4 winners I think and to be honest I cant even tell you who won because I dont remember their names, but I think all of them deserved it. Here are some of my pictures…
Finally VS reveiled who will wear the fantasy bra this year. It’s Marisa Miller, I find the choice quite boring but what upsets me even more is the bra itself. It’s worth 3 million dollars and it looks rather unspectacular. Why did they choose a full coverage bra? I know Marisa has big boobs but something a little bit more sexy would have been more appropriate. The only thing I like about it is the heart shaped diamond. Now a more positive note, the VS holiday campaign this year is quite good. I’m not sure if it’s because of the photographer or better editing, but most of the pictures look quite classy, for example these…
What a beautiful photoshoot. Miranda Kerr is on the cover of Australian Grazia magazine and the editorial is stunning. Shot with the amazing Sydney skyline in the background Miranda presents the new swimwear and looks great as always. I love the black baloons.
Haha, you all probably know that situation when celebrities win an award and they go: “First of all I would like to thank god” so now that I won my first blogger award I would like to thank someone too, not god (though I thank him for many other things) but Nadine from Style Taxiwho gave this award to me. So uhm…aparently I have to tell you 7 random things about me, here we go:
1. I collect fashion magazines, I have about 800 mags in my room (I stopped counting after 500).
2. I hate winter and dark short days.
3. Starbucks Coffee makes me happy.
4. I need a lot of sleep, sometimes I sleep 11 hours and more.
5. I don’t like to read books, but I wish I would.
6. I’ve been to Hawaii when I was 18 and I absolutely loved that place.
7. My boyfriend lives in Sydney, Australia, over 16000 km away from me.
When I saw the first pics of the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection which will be in store on November 14, I wasnt impressed at all. But now I saw the campaign with Sasha Pivovarova and Edita Vilkeviciute and it might not be so bad after all. The shoes are ok, the bags are nice but the dresses outshine everything in my opinion. I hope the jewellery will be available aswell. Lovely campaign shot by Terry Richardson btw.
