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.

Wild Wild West

Posted in Editorial, Fashion by strytllng on June 5, 2011




You may have noticed by now that this season, my sense of styling has been inspired by old photographs of Native Americans from the 19th century. Not only do I love the prints and soft leather combined with an overload of accessories made of natural materials but it is also the inherent calmness that these pictures radiate. If you need some reminiscence, please search for photos of Crazy Horse or Sitting Bull. They send out a mystic energy of power and wisdom which captures my mind these days.

I found these photos from Numéro on SPELL and the Gypsy Collective. They are not quiet the originals but it’s a 21st century photoshoot in perfection. The series in sepia reflects the fashion trend inspired by the originals as close as a Burberry coat could come the North American continent and its rich history. The best photoshoots seem to be either made in heaven or in France.

Céline ZZ sunglasses


Osborn Design Studios Huipile Bootie

Pendleton Heritage Home Decor

I got the fashion-tribal fever in earthy tones! Céline shades are just the best this season and need to be part of my wishful thinking list to keep me from dancing around the bonfire singing spells. Enjoy your Summer!

Lolita x Tomboy

Posted in Fashion, Lookbook by strytllng on May 13, 2011

Last night I had a dream: I went back to Australia but for only 72hours. (Why one would travel around the globe for 72hours Down Under is beyond my logic.) What did I do with my precious time? After being followed by a gigantic snake I mainly went for some shopping. Some of my favorite blogs are from the southern hemisphere which may explain me dreaming about the continent far far away where Summer wardrobe dreams seem to come true.

Is the Australian Summer really so far away for this Berlinette? Then I remembered OneTeaspoon a label which is also available in Europe. I got the lookbook quickly to share with my readers. I must say, my love for this young label is growing even more. The Fall-Winter 2011 collection named The Wanderer mixes the perfect lolita look with tough tomboy style. Shorts, kimono-inspired jackets and babydolls meet XXL legged jeans and buttoned up shorts. My favorites are definitely those wide jeans paired with the kimono jackets. Inspiring!

New DIY Coming Up ::: Kimono Coat

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on May 6, 2011

These kimono inspired Boho-Summer coats keep following me these days. They look best when made out of burn-out velvet and silk but any free-floating textile could serve the purpose. I’ll have to hit the Turkish market next week to find myself the perfect fabric and get the needles going. Some shorts and my self-made coat…I cannot wait for Summer!!!

Current Mood ::: Accessory Envy

Posted in Editorial, Fashion by strytllng on April 28, 2011

Everywhere I go I see it: jewellery I love but don’t own yet. What is it these days that makes me search for unique accessories on an almost daily basis? Maybe it is the lack of time? You cannot go wrong in size when you buy it on the net. Is it the lack of cash? Accessories will update the old and very basic wardrobe and give it a more individual twist without having to replace all of your clothes. Maybe it’s the fact that Summer is rushing in and the lack of warming layers needs to be compensated with some extra weight to smoothen the transition into the warmer season?! Maybe it’s a combination of all the above but actually I am just a young woman who loves playful experiments and is sometimes drawn to the beautiful shine that’s not the ordinary jeweler’s bling.

I am definitely a blogette seeing a trend in clothing becoming of secondary importance while accessories are taking over the spotlight in stylings.

Seriously, who is looking at the clothes in the image? The Vogue PARIS styling is all about the model’s jewellery.

Something To Look Forward To

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on April 18, 2011

This Pointer Farai is a fusion of great styles such as  workwear boot + minnetonka and boat/deck shoe. The beauty was one of my last big surprises at the Berlin Press Days on Friday. I had found my new wintershoe as soon as I had spotted it in a room filled with a collection of vintage inspired shoes and boots which I loved entirely. I can hardly wait to slip my skinny jeans into these and welcome the first snow.

But for now, I am very much looking forward to raspberries growing on my balcony.

Favorite Label BPD 1 ::: Pendleton

Posted in Fashion by strytllng on April 15, 2011

The American tradition brand PENDLETON overwhelmed my fashion hungry soul with their western-style line. If you’ve been following me these days, you’ll know my heart has been beating for western-inspired clothing for a while in fact, WESTERN is my new BOHO in Summer 2011.

I want that vest!!!

..:: INFLUENCERS ::..

Posted in Words of Wisdom by strytllng on November 17, 2010

INFLUENCERS – a short documentary that explores the role of trendsetters and how a trend spreads. Focusing on creative scenes the message is authenticity, honest devotion and never to forget your social engagement and to offer mentorship to young talents.

 

Quote from the webdoc:

A tipping point is the biography of an idea and the idea is very simple. Ideas and products and messages and behaviors spread just like viruses do.

Malcolm Gladwell

On brand establishment and the usage of influencers:

You can’t fake it – you can’t create like this movement overnight. It’s not about one individual or a brand paying money to one single person…It’s about brands really embracing a culture and a scene and empowering it and creating a true partnership.
