Pastel colors like sweets


Pretty pastel and candy colors popped up on all runways from designers such as Jonathan Saunders, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Yves Saint Laurent, Jil Sander and others. All these beautiful colors as light yellow like vanilla ice cream, light pink like candyfloss, sky blue like sweet berry candies and mint green like pistachio ice cream look so delicious that I can’t resist. They make me feel light, tender and feminine like a sugar fairy. And yes! It’s spring time!

♕ Ice cream is exquisite. What a pity, it isn’t illegal. ♕

Beauty Gallery of Best Ponytails & Up-Dos Summer 2012


As I promised you, now I present the best ponytails and up-dos as seen on the runways spring/summer season 2012. You know various kinds of ponytails, but I’m sure the one I chose are unique and will be a new inspiration to you. David Koma, Hervé Legér and Maria Bonita really created some great masterpieces. If you like your hair absolutely glamourous and eccentric, the accessorised up-dos by Jason Wu, Phillip Lim and Yves Saint Laurent are stunning examples to copy. You want a more elegant and less obtrusive version, braid and twist your hair like Valentinos’ runway models, wrap it as seen on Christian Diors’ runways or just do a ballerina bun, which looked awesome on Yves Saint Laurents’ models and really is easy to do. Me myself I love to try the various hairstyles of the spring/summer season depending on my daily mood, outfit and occasion.

Beauty Gallery of Hairstyle Trends Spring Summer 2012

Look at this amazing beauty gallery of the best spring/summer hairstyles 2012! Especially the influence of retrolooks will bestride all the other hairlooks of the season. Big Hair and luxourious curls as seen on the runways of Zac Posen, Versace and Anna Sui or gorgeous retrostyles by Sonia Rykiel, Zac Posen again and Louis Vuitton with its stunning 60′s-inspired up do and beauty look I love the most. Decorated up dos are also seen on various runways. Chanel brought this look to perfection by decorating the models’ hair with lots of pearls. So glamourous! Block fringes by Giorgio Armani for example support graphical designs and bring out beautiful eyes. In contrast to all these soft, retro and glam looks Alexander Wang and some other designers focus on sleek wetlook grunge hair, a special hairstyle only for perfect faces and brave fashionistas and a easy summer look too. There are so many stunning hairstyles next season that it isn’t possible to put them all in one beauty gallery. So I’ll make a special one for you with all my favorite ponytail und up do hairstyles. Enjoy!

Pink Rocks!


Pink isn’t only the cute and romantic girls dream. No! It really can be so sassy and cool! Yeah, it rocks! Especially this season, wearn all over it’s one of the hottest color trends! I love the awesome runway looks by Roksanda Ilincic. They show, that pink is more than elegant but supercool. So I picked some beautiful pink stuff for you I like the most: Michael Kors created some gorgeous two pieces as this One-shoulder stretch-jersey dress and the Double-zip wool-twill skirt, which is a great match with a black top or blouse and black accessories. The pink blouse by Roksanda Ilincic again is really cute and offers a lot of hot combinations to wear like the Razor wool-blend pants by Preen, which also will look very sophisticated with a jacket in the same color. I found some really stylish pink accessories like the clutches by Christian Louboutin and Alexander McQueen which I like most because I’m completely into skulls. So there’s no wonder that the crazy pink skull candle by DL & CO also is a must have for me. 😉 Put pink pants and for example the Lace-bow silk top by Miu Miu on and the headphones by skullcandy will do the rest to give you a very urban fashionable outfit! If you’re really brave combine this all over look with some hot platform pumps by topshop in the same color. Pink all over don’t need much. Just put some O.P.I nailpolish in the same color on and one piece of jewelry like this awesome BP-Bubblegum ring by Luxuria. This beautiful piece is made of 24k Gold plated Silver hand-hammered rings with 8mm Faded red coral, 6mm Rose sapphire-like stone and 6mm Amethyst-like stone. It is the perfect punch of colour that will brighten even the rainiest of days. Wear this set to compliment any outfit and you will be sure to turn heads. And in pink all over you’ll do anyway! You’ll rock!

✰ I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. ✰

ForEverGreen


 
Now that there’s no real winter this year in Germany till these days, birds are singing and the january sun is a bit too strong I can’t wait to present the most fashionable color of spring/summer 2012 to you: Green! It’s fresh, warm, natural and powerful! Wearing some green It-piece you could hide yourself between green grass, frogs and flowers to relax and get the first shafts of sunlight. Green will bring new power, the spirit of nature to your soul. Here are my favorite green pieces of the coming spring/summer season: I love the gorgeous dresses by Alberta Ferretti and Blugirl and also the One-shoulder silk gown by Oscar de la Renta. There are also beautiful blouses like the Fringed satin blouse by Rebecca Taylor or the lovely Isara pleated silk-chiffon blouse By Malene Birger. I also love the cool and sexy greatcoat by Akris which you also can wear as a dress and the lovely Liquirizia pleated stretch cotton-poplin skirt by Jil Sander. You don’t have to wear Green all over. Green pieces also can be combined with black, white or denim. But Green all over is the most fashionable way to wear it. Single green accessories like this cool Eliza leather wedges by Kors Michael Kors or bags like the unique Pandora Perspex box clutch by Charlotte Olympia or the more sportive bag by Proenza Schouler will make each simple outfit look new, fresh and trendy. You only need to have enough self-confidence and courage to wear Green especially all over because you definitely will attract attention with this flashy fresh fashion statement. I really love colors so I love all shades of Green! And Green is the color of hope. So get ready to put some hope on for 2012!

XXL Earrings – Glam your look! ♕

I bet you need some more to glam your look for your New Year’s Eve Party! Do it like Olivia Palermo, Eva Longoria or for example Emma Stone and put some huge XXL earrings on! It’s hard to choose which are the best because there are so many awesome long earrings this season. My favorites are the beautiful ones by Isharya because they are green colored and I love the drops as a waterfall of green onyx stones. Concerning the color and style Tom Binns, Lulu Frost and Bijoux Heart designed some stunning long earrings which are more classic. The Petite Rogue rhodium Swarovski crystal drop earrings by Tom Binns with the sparkling Swarovksi crystals, the Feather silver-plated crystal earrings by Lulu Frost and the Parfait 24-karat gold-plated Swarovski crystal earrings by Bijoux Heart are modern and vintage-inspired at the same time. If you want to attract even more attention take the red huge baroque-inspired Berry Jewels earrings by Miguel Ases or the gorgeous yellow turquois colored Crystal Drop Earrings by Iosselliani. They are cool, modern, fashionable and eccentric all in one.

And now start to party and have a happy New Year with lots of love! ♡♡♡

Cool Clutches – Can’t get enough!


Wanna get some inspiration to pimp your nighttime look? Here they are: The coolest clutches of this party season! Browsing through all fashion stores these awesome clutches are my favorites. Michael Kors presents the recent metallic trend with the Sloan Lizard-effect Metallic Leather Clutch. So does Mango or Halston Heritage with its Jenny Fold Clutch. The look has to be dark to make these golden pieces stand out. The Valorie Multicolor Glitter Clutch by Anya Hindmarch also needs less to sparkle. To get a more elegant and sophisticated look the Constance leather clutch by Jason Wu, the Leo Party Clutch by See by Chloé or the YSL Sac De Jour Clutch in red really are show-stopping pieces. You want something more special to be the spotlight on each party? Take the Kissy Face Mesh Clutch by Felix Rey to be the glamour queen of the night. Or you choose the Britannia Skull crystal-studded suede box clutch by Alexander McQueen to lend your look a cool Britannia edge or last but not least you take the Lytton Croc Ruby Wine Clutch by Diane von Fuerstenberg to get a gorgeous vintage look. No matter which clutch you choose, with each of these stunning pieces you’ll make a great fashion statement and attract attention.

Under The Christmas Tree

Everyone has some xmas wishes, something she would like to get on christmas, but doesn’t dare to say. And there is so much joy in having dreams which probably would come true. Maybe not now but someday. And there is nothing forbidden about having luxurious dreams. So I start dreaming …. of a huge colored tree, full of beautiful christmas tree decorations in all colors, a lot of sweets like gingerbread men, chocolate hearts, cinnamon stars … and of course a lot of very glamourous and lovely things under my dream christmas tree. There is this awesome long Savannah sequined net gown by Vivienne Westwood Gold Label, which is enough to make you look like a princess or this beautiful Cotton-blend broderie anglaise and linen skirt by Valentino. This skirt or the Sequined wool sweater by J.Crew only need a black thing more to be completed. Ahhh … and then I see these gorgeous shoes! I’m addicted to highheels you know. So there can’t be anything more glam than these gold lamé-covered suede sandals by Jimmy Choo or these nude Embellished suede and leather slingbacks by Guiseppe Zanotti. So feminine and stylish! Yes sure I need some jewelry to get the perfect glam look. There are so many glitter stuff coming through my mind: I really love jewelry by Sévigné like this 18K ring or necklace with a picture of the Virgin Mary on it or the other whitegold one with the diamond cross pendant. There is also jewelry which isn’t real luxury but beautiful too like these silver earrings with violet colored stones or these stunning slinky stone earrings by accessorize. In my christmas dream last but not least I put the Pyramid Studded Headband by Deepa Gurnani into my long hair, I take a seat under the beautiful tree and eat a chocolate heart, a cinnamon star and again a chocolate heart looking at this cute gingerbread man smiling at me, hoping not to wake up.

Gold for Black Lace


I really must say, that some of my favorite looks of the season is black lace. It has something fragile and powerful at the same time. It shows a bit, but not all. So it’s sexy, but classy, especially if you prefer the length of a pencil skirt like this one by Malene Birger or dresses which don’t show too much like this gorgeous one by Stella McCartney. You have to be more brave to wear runway looks as seen by Valentino or Dolce & Gabbana. And in this case the most important thing is, that you have to combine a beautiful body with a beautiful mind and soul. Then the effect will be a classy appearance with the Wow factor. If you don’t want to wear the whole lace look, just put some accessories like this Maris Open-Toe Pump by Menbur or the Lace clutch bag by Lacie. The Lace and mesh bodysuit by Antonio Berardi will be a cool sophisticated match with some skinny dark jeans or black leather pants. Put some Union Jack Black nailpolish by butter London on and your lace look will become more intensive with a whiff of bad girl. Sexy but innocent.

Softly falls the snow ❄

Softly falls the snow …. Yes winter is coming in Germany. I love to be inside with a lot of candles, a warm sweater and a gingerbread man. And if it could be some Moschino sweater with a snowman freaking out, I’ll drink some hot tea or wine punch and simply smile the coldness away having some beautiful dreams. In my daydreams it’s me standing under the christmas tree wearing this gorgeous red dress, Yves Saint Laurent triptoo suede platform pumps, a Swarovsi crystal necklace and ring with stars. Yes, sure I put on some special christmas glitter nailpolish with the funny name “Getting miss piggy with it”. Or I’m walking in the snow, watching all this awesome christmas decoration in the city and chilling on the christmas market with this beautiful Pinguin intarsia wool sweater by Moschino, Karl Donoghue earmuffs and Aubin & Will fontwell intarsia wool mittens. Yummy …. I’ll take some more of this delicious gingerbread chocolate hearts.

If you want to shine like a superstar on your next party or just wanna lighten the room, one unique gloss and glitter piece must be yours. You only need one glamour gown like the noble gold one by Vivienne Westwood or the green one with 1950s simplicity by Sequin Queen which makes you look like a jewel and combine it with simple shoes and only few accessories.
