The Boyfriend Topic

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on June 3, 2013

Spring? It might not seem that way exactly because the sun hasn’t been out in two weeks and it’s been raining constantly – taking a try on subtropics right now –  but Summer is just around the corner. Since Spring has been the little brother of a too long Winter – body shapes are taking a loooooong way to go back into Summer-mode.

I always have and always will be a big supporter of the boyfriend look. It had a different name growing up with two brothers: being the second in line wearing the grown-out stuff from a way taller person for the next years. Some clothes, I never grew out of and kept them for a long time until the return of skinny. But I soon got tired of skinny – it just isn’t my everyday favorite. Let’s take a closer look at the varieties of the BOYFRIEND STYLE.

Sunday Favorite ::: Dungarees

Posted in Fashion, Uncategorized by strytllng on June 1, 2013

If I could live in them – I would. Dungarees are just the best for occasions such as the weekends, festivals or any other lazy fun day. They scream at me whenever I see one: TAKE ME, I AM COMFORTABLE! Here is a selection of some stylish examples that will allow you to leave the house in them – and not just to go to the bakery around the corner.

The Reformation, Capri Jumper, made from repurposed vintage denim.

Pixie Market, Wythe leather overall. And Zara dungaree.

 

Always a great place to find denim dungarees: vintage stores and flea markets.

Free People, Straight Eyelet overall.

Earbling ::: Ryan Storer

I got an early birthday wish: Earcuffs by Ryan Storer. The majority of his collection may be sold out but a few pieces are still left – I REALLY want these!!! Rosegold, crystal and pearls – what an amazing combination!

Levi’s XX ::: STOCK SALE

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on March 21, 2012

Quiet? Me? Yes. I haven’t blogged much lately but here is a quickie before I return to writing more updates on what happened in these past gazillion years.

If you happen to be in Berlin these days, don’t miss the Levi’s XX stock sale – the prices for the premium brands represented are simply too good to pass on the opportunity. The only thing you need is something similar to a sample size or another extreme… no probs, correct? 😉 #summerapproaching

This must have taken a day’s work but these braids with rings look so effortless that I would love to try it some time.

You know your French friends love you when they come with French fashion magazines to visit you.

Striking how very similar these two covers are, non?

Wishing everyone the relaxing Holidays we all deserve!
As you can see, I prepared myself with my own version of “Yoga” – OPI nail polish and gossip.

Cheers!!!

Bye Bye Sunny Days

Posted in DIY, Fashion by strytllng on October 20, 2011

Bye bye summer. Bye bye cute little shirts and bags. Berlin is facing freezing weather these days. Time to look back at things that will have to wait until next summer to see daylight again.

The above is a DIY shirt I made from a shirt I found in a vintage store in London’s Brick Lane, where Anne Hathaway shopped at the same time while I found this retro “Dream-Safari-Print” shirt. (It’s the perfect kind of trashy to upcycle it.) The Aigner bag is vintage from London as well and – surprise – the Oxfords with ethno fabric application are from the island as well. (no vintage here 😉 ) The fabulous jeans? Levi’s Made & Crafted.

London – you dressed me in August!

His Blue Suede Shoes

Posted in Fashion, Uncategorized by strytllng on September 21, 2011

The “Cole Haan Theophilus Blue Suede Buck” looks awesome and is the dress shoe to have this season. The collab comes complete with a 10” vinyl of London’s cover of Nat King Cole’s “Calypso Blues.”

How is this possible? I love everything this man does!
