URBAN DIARIES: COLOGNE

DSCF9055

 

Flames, I’ll be very honest. I am sitting right in-between two stools. I’m in the place where life changing circumstances just changed my life completely, turned it upside down, made it impossible to decide where to go next… When my head is full of decision making and when thoughts linger heavy on my mind I know two things to perfectly distract me: one is traveling – and the other one is fashion, without a doubt.

I may be a little sparing with words lately. In that sense let me please share with you a few impressions from my recent travels to Cologne and the stuff that rocks my world of fashion at the moment for inspiration. Sneakers are absolutely on the top of my hot list for this spring/summer – there is no better foot gear to explore the metropolises of this world than sport shoes. As much as I love the ‘extra inches’ – there is no point in hurting your feet while your eyes want to dwell upon new and unknown sights. Leave the high heels for Fashion Week and the high profile events – that’s where they perfectly belong…

Style-wise I am lusting after urban chic as well as everything colorful with an ethno touch for the warm season. Current Adidas Originals collection is coming in handy since they combined all of the three. A short over a colorful leggings is always a good idea – especially when high temperatures haven’t already kicked in that much.

Up next it is going to Paris including a short stay at Euro Disney, so fingers crossed that I get a few good snap shots to share with you soon from there….

Love and light,

VERSUS AT BERLIN FASHION WEEK

Flames, I cannot believe myself that I have withheld this set of photos from Berlin Fashion Week in January for so long. These were taken by the utterly talented Berlin based photographer Uli Löser, who made a positive mark when letting me go first at the bar of Bassy Club at Austrian designer Lena Hoschek‘s after show party. In a big city like Berlin I’d usually expect someone to push in rather than letting you squeeze past, but Uli must have felt my urge to quench my thirst. We became friends and these amazing snap shots became a result and sweet memory of my Berlin Fashion Week experience to treasure forever.

The dress code for this evening has been pin-up, so, with a little sense of wit, I opted for this tremendous Versus safety pin embellished dress. Besides a dress like this from current Versus collection can never go wrong – at any occasion. Liz Hurley knew that already in 1994.

In 2014 we should certainly party as we wish, be jolly and celebrate in high spirits – just don’t forget to bring your safety pins with you, Flames…;)

WHY SNEAKERS ARE EVERYTHING IN 2014

alicia-keys-reebok

 

Flames, I may not have been the most active on my blog lately … Well, they say life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans :) While I have been utterly occupied my best companion to take on every day’s challenge have been my sneakers. As I mentioned in another post, I don’t run around in my heels everyday – for a good reason. As pretty as high heels may be – giving us those extra-inches that every woman of every height desires. Yet for being on the go in the metropolises of the world – sneakers are unbeatable. Especially since there are so many desirable styles available. R’n'B super star Alicia Keys has taken comfortable footwear to the next level by fusing with sports label Reebook. The outcome is beyond stylish and I am sure will have you craving for one or the other design. Alicia Keys is certainly a role model for young and strong women, which has got me wanting to get my hands on one of these even more badly. I think that 2014 will definitely be a sneakers year and I can’t wait to spot the most elaborate designs in street style pictures and throughout the Bloggersphere. If you are looking for inspiration, look no further I got you covered:
