Working It

A rare “Me and my outfit” post coming your way this morning. Yes, I may be biking in heels but I love my new Air Max 1s more than all my heels combined. Good morning Berlin!

I loved this Stine Goya look at Agency V during the first Berlin Press Day. It is simple with special attention to the details such as the zippers, accentuated shoulders and the hypnotizing print.

Fashion Week Berlin ::: What They Wear

Posted in Fashion Week by strytllng on January 19, 2011

So here is a first impression of your favorite fashion victim from inside the tent where I saw the opening show of A.F. Vandevorst at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2011. It was way too early for fashion. I used to live right around the corner of Bebelplatz, where the tent is located. Instead, I had to take two busses and it took me 40minutes from door to tent.

Later this day, I will see Augustin Teboul at the Soho House and attend the Happy Store Opening at Torstrasse.

You can take the girl out of Mitte but Mitte will remain a part of this girl.

To Market, To Market – Milan Vintage

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on October 5, 2010

What looks to be a tiny part of Milan turns into the biggest antique- and fleamarket in Milan.  Once a month, the canal in the south-west of the city turns into the biggest gathering of style and presentation.

People know I am THE vintage girl and I wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity for any Missoni fashion show in the world. I put on my Aigner silk skirt, which I bought two years ago and the Aigner bag and combined them with an American Apparel cotton shirt and a hat that used to belong to someone in a former life. Black patent leather Oxfords were in order to keep me on my feet all day long.

The market was amazing. They had pretty much everything one could imagine. From mini Biedermeier furniture to 70s glasses, fake and real designerbags to the best jewelry selection I had seen so far – even dogs were carried in “puppy purses” at this outstanding “go see”. (Which I thought the most ridiculous thing one could do to a living being).

By the end of the day my feet hurt and I didn’t dare to buy much. Except for a few, the sellers were all pros and demanded exceptionally high prices for the goods. The most fun is browsing through the beauty of past times anyways, right?

Pic Du Jour ::: Fashion Week by Bike

I met my beautiful friend Katharina for lunch today which is special because my little fashion video producer and aspiring actress is visiting from Paris. When we met spontaneously in front of the tent I was blown away by her laissez faire layer western outfit combined with a green attitude to rush from event to event via her pink beach cruiser. Trés chic mademoiselle! See what’s new with this young lady at

Impressions ::: Subject60 Tour Berlin

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 30, 2010

This little blogette got herself a pretty black envelope in the mailbox a few weeks ago saying that the Swedish family car brand will make a hip fashionable fuzz in Berlin’s Station, also residence to the Premium Exhibition. Everybody was invited: The minor celebrities, fashionable people, car interested folk, professional bloggers who saw their chance of taking as many pictures as they could to get an equal amount of clicks on their platforms the next day and then there were those like me: LYKKE LI LOVERS.

Yes, that’s right: Lykke my dear if you read this: hola! From your Acne booties to the black leather cape/longjacket, I loved everything about you effortless look. Your sets may have been short but were pure energy. Too bad the big cameras in the front row slowed down your spark from inflaming the second row but I didn’t care and neither did you, when you said:

Stop taking photos with your fuckin’ cameras and dance with me.

See, this is why you are a true artist and not just the stylish musician, many PR people would like to make you.

The rest of the evening can be summed up like this: drinks, drinks, drinks…all with alcohol (which is weird considering there was no water available for the first few hours at a car presentation event-but we liked that too), great job on the decoration with the big screen animations and the karaoke car performances but I must admit, while Lykke surely pulled in many guests, the Borchardt’s catering by Berlin’s most prominent celebrity restaurant, wasn’t any less spectacular.

Did I mention that Yvan Rodic and Adam Port were also part of the “spectacle”? Too bad Yvan was barely seen taking pictures of guests, because I love to watch him pull out people out of the crowd. DJ Adam Port on the other side did a great job getting the dancefloor moving.

As for my own comfort that evening, I celebrated it with friends and my “for free” outfit. An oversized squared jersey short dress from Anglomania by Vivienne Westwood which I got as a hand-down from a friend accessorized it with multiple gold chains which were either given to me by friends & family or which I got from parties in Berlin. My purse was a tote by No.74 which I got at the launch of the “I like my style” magazine a few weeks ago.

All in all it was a roaring night for Berlin’s fashion crowd supporting my ever-growing admiration for Lykke Li.
