Could This Be?

Posted in Editorial by strytllng on September 6, 2011

Who made this miracle happen? What is different? Do I really like this editorial featuring Alexa Chung? Did I really fall for the 60s aesthetic? (It’s been a little too “out there” since H&M are using it for their Fall key-looks) Is it my lack of vitality (ask me about some strength left in those sore muscles of mine.) or am I not the only one loving this editorial from Harper’s Bazaar UK?

As you may know, I am not a fan of overly present people/things/trends/campaigns/… therefore I haven’t been the biggest Alexa fan out there. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely is a beautiful girl with a very interesting appeal, a good sense in style and I am sure she is nice too but she’s been EVERYWHERE these past two years, presenting her “unique” style. I pretty much got bored at one point seeing her on yet another magazine cover – until today. But what is it that makes me like these photos so much? I’ve been thinking about this for two hours now and here are my racing thoughts about it: it’s the photographic ‘snapshot’ aesthetic paired with these relaxed 60s looks. It’s not about her – any model could have been staring in this feature. My favorite protagonist in this editorial is in fact the knitted sweater in the record store.

Pattern? Anyone?

Falling For Red

Yoko’s via OneTeaspoon

I stumbled over the new arrivals in OneTeaspoon‘s online shop and again, I am ridiculously IN LOVE. Soft suede in a warm orange-red?! Common…how can you not love a pair of shorts called Yoko’s. Since the Berlin Summer is slowly approaching a Berlin Fall – this warm tone couldn’t be better suited to resemble the warm colors of the third season. But I might need a little more fabric than this Australian label has to offer in order to stand the lower temperatures though. I did a little research for you and have come up with 3 jeans alternatives. They don’t hit the color exactly but from tomato-red to a slightly purple burgundy, I still have the hots for red jeans. Anything you would like to add?

If you’ve been following Streetstyle blogs during this Fashion Week season, you’ll have noticed the trend of megawatt colors outside the runwayshows. The trend seems to be going towards big accessories, structures and patterns but the combination of flashy colors, flashy design and overaccessorized fashionistas is just not my cup of tea. I prefer the clean-cut design accentuated with some color – a style that won’t stress your visual sense. In fact, the minimalist-neon combination soothes the overfashioned brain like homemade lemonade on one of these first hot Spring days.

New Arrival

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it…*feel free to sing along with me*

I got this pair of flashy Nikes today for a bargain you wouldn’t believe – one could say: for free but the superstitious don’t make shoe gifts. I SOOO VERY MUCH LOVE THEM ALREADY! I guess Milan will be a whole lot more colorful by Thursday.

All-Time Favorite ::: Vanessa Paradis on the Cover of Vogue Paris

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on June 14, 2010

French singer Vanessa Paradis on the cover of Vogue Paris, November 2008.

This is by far my favorite Vogue cover of all times. Vanessa’s posture, her gaze, the styling, the color choices, the facewrap and the make-up – it all screams classic INNER & OUTER beauty. Mademoiselle looks like she is bathing in grace every morning but the right inspiration for a strong 80s power & beauty look just adds perfection to Paradis. No need to mention that her infamous toothgap hints how unconventional she is. Now this is what Vogue is famous for  and lucky me has kept the original issue in a special place at home.
