Every Marvelous Outfit

Or EMO for Short. It really annoys me, how when one likesbBlack and lace and extravangance ,people judge you and say your EMO. I think people have gotten the Definition of emo a bit Messed up.

Emo is a style of rock music typically characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. 

See so basically by apparently dressing emo we are just being honest. Honest about who we are and what we like. Does Society expect us to wear frilly and pink even when we feel awful? Its really what I think they are trying to get us to do. We criticize the ones who look different because we are afraid, afraid they might notice we feel the same. Afraid of truth, of someone looking behind our strong, secure and sufficient mask. It's what we see so often when we look at celebrities who are so beautiful and then they take their make up off and put on Jeans and cry because they also have emotions and problems. As soon as they do that maganzines start snapping away and insulting them. We always want everything and everyone to be happy and perfect. 

So what when we oppose this Image? When we Dress like we want to  sometimes even "EMO"... Are we weird or normal? Well one Thing I know for sure, we are honest. Because no one, not even Posh feels like wearing high heels and pretty dresses all the time. So forget what they say, you and your emotions are unique embarce then and dont supress them!

Them cool girls

Remeber how we all so desperatly wanted to be cheerleaders in our first high school year? How we wanted to be one of those cool, hot girls who ruled the school? Well my dream of cheering already failed due to the fact that our school didn't even have a team. But I figured that is wasn't too bad, sure I couldn't preform like a cheerleader but I could still dress like one. So this is basically an idea I've stuck too. Yes, I have to admit it's not exactly one of the most wearable styles, but really when looking through my outfits, which is? 

By combining my lastest infatuation of baseballcaps with knee high socks and my super beloved VS sports top I'm in love with this outfit. Definetly something I wear for sports or even just to chill on the weekend. Taking these pictures we just had so much fun, rapping to Thrift shop leaving the surrounding people staring, wondering if they should call some kind of doctor. But who cares you only live once and you can dress like whoever the hell you want to be!

Queen of hearts

After wearing my favorite again yesterday I decided to finally dedicate a Post to them: colliers. Since they are more or less the closest thing, I will ever posses to me being a princess (unfortunately I'm not even talking Bvlgari here) but hey, at least they make me feel special! I bought this particular one in Abu Dhabi where I felt even more like the princess out of Aladin. I  know by now you probably think I'm the kind of girl who stalks Prince Harry in hope of living in a castle, but I can honestly assure you I'm not! I just love the feeling of looking special. Feeling like I stand out, or people will remeber me. Nothing makes me happier than when people are like, "Oh yeah. I know her she's the one with the red pants, or funky i-phone case" or something like that. It means I'm not the grey mouse at the side watching the pretty girls. I'm not saying I'm pretty or anything, but through jewlery and clothes every girl gets to feel special. 

Have you for example ever watched the show plain Jane? That's the kind of thing I mean, they get confindence and a whole new view on life just because they dress differently. People may say that is superficial and fake and how our society is only about looks now. Well, hate to break it to you, IT IS! But at the moment we still have the option between hiring stylist and reading Vogue to tell us what is  needed to be accepted in society, or we can rely on ourselves. Show the world who we are while still trying to stay afloat with all these crazy amazing and pretty and funny and smart other people. Because when it comes down to it, if you really like what you are wearing and decided it yourself, people will also remeber you for your characteristics and not only for your looks. It's a superficial world ,but we can still decide how we live in it.

Post easter time

Is there something like spring laziness? I know there's the winter and autumn blues but honestly in the past weeks I have been so unmotivated to work! All I want to do is be outside and surprise surprise shop. Seeing all the flowery sales windows and beautiful new spring collections. Wedges and sandals, especially the gladiator sandals which are coming back to much of my delight... Tops, flowery dresses and the new juicy collection <3 have you seems they're bathing suits?! Best invention ever! You can wear them as tops, dresses or swimsuits. Sexy, classy and they even hide some belly fat ( why do they even put Easter before bikini season?!) anyway definetly check it out and there is no nicer place to shop than a nice decorated and colorful shop. Also great spring adresses are bcbg for prom dresses and Victoria secret to find the bikini that makes you look best. Wether you have huge boobs, a wide hip or short legs there I always a way to make you look great! Don't be ashamed flaunt your body you are perfect the way you are and don't let any size 0 model get you down! Spring is fun and if your still eating Easter eggs rather than working out relax, you are not the only one

Summer is calling!

Summer is finally getting closer, which god has decided to actually show by raising the temperatures. Along with the temperatures, it luckily also seems as if colors have gone up the scale and become much brighter. No more monotone grey, black and blue streets but pink and red and yellow and green! To celebrate color I have been wearing all my colored pants these weeks and enjoyed the feeling of t-shirts, without fat jackets on top. Also it is such a relief to not have to ruin my hair with hats anymore(although they were a good excuse for bad hair days). 

One of the best things to incorporate white with, if you don't want  to go full white ( or any other spring/summer color yet) is wearing tie dye pants. Mixing blue with green or grey with pink shows you are already in spring fever but might match better if you re-encounter one of those rainy days. 

I wore these pants today which are my complete favorite summer must have. I love how they incorporate animal print, studs, white and color streaks. Even cooler with streaked hair or highlighted tips, which I have been to afraid to do because of hair damage, but I really want to soon. It looks so awesome! So I hope you have all had a nice spring start and are rocking those colors!

So far out of reach they're close again

Once upon a time...

You know those brands we dream about? the ones we will probably never be able to afford(unless we are SJP or co.) the ones we just google to get our mouthes watering? Well when I say Marchesa I think we all have the same reaction right? Heart beat speeding up, hands moistening, fingers twitching and mind flaring to see what you would look like in one of those dresses. Sounds familiar? The sites we all stalk the most, the stores we almost get heart attacks when we walk past, the only criminal action we could ever imagine doing stealing one of those gowns.....

Well, before I get criminal I should probably better move  on. But seriously how many of you have tried on of these on and felt the material clutch your skin, like it would never let you go, feel it cascade down your back and transform you into cinderella, giving you more support than any man ever could. It's not the price or name that makes these dresses special (that's just what makes them out of reach) it's the fact that they make us feel so special and according to every women's magazine thats what everyone needs. Forget alcohol, shoes or credit cars, unless they have a large overdraft for one of these dresses nothing will ver make you as happy right? 

I wonder though all these celebrities who were them day by day do they even still appreciate it? I mean they say it themselves they aren't ever allowed to wear a dress twice, so do they sit in their large walk in closets on a free day and try each of them one, dancing around the room or are they cool for that? Hanging each dress away after one event to never look at them again? Do dresses lose their worth when we can have them in any variety? I hope not. They won't for me ever. I will always love and stare at sales windows dreaming of wearing one.

One of those days

You know those days where you just wanna cuddle up in bed with your favorite PJ's anda tub of Ben and Jerry's? Because your collegeau bitched about you, your boyfriend cheated on you or a nasty rumor was spread? Here are the funniest and meanest comebacks ever. Just to get you up and going again. Text them, say them or even just think them, it already makes you feel better. Forget those who do you wrong, you still have the better style!

A nudist has more stylish clothes than you, and they wear none!
Words can't describe your outfit, so I'll just throw up!
They can't measure your intelligence. The scale won't go that low.
Appearances can be deceiving. Or in your case, disgusting.

Know what I like about your face? Me neither

Know what goes best with a face like yours? A paper bag.

You've made this date I won't forget... no matter how hard I try.

You must have been born on a highway cuz thats where most accidents happen

why were males created before females? Because you always need a rough draft before the finally copy

we have a strange and wonderful relationship. You’re strange and I’m wonderful

If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong

Sweetie if you’re gonna be two faced at least make on of them pretty

Laugh at your problems, everyone else does

Now I know why this was a blind date. Because after seeing you I wish I was blind

So these are my favorite leggins of ALL TIMES!!! I used to always wear them in summer with bare legs, but recently I then wanted to wear them so bad so I just pulled on a pair of hot pink leggins underneath. Which I have to say looked super awesome. While people did look at me with that look of "Oh god another one of those emos" but I was delighted. Puts a new thing on the animal thing doesn't it? While I have to admit nothing is more pathetic than 'wannabe hipster' or punk or whatever with they're much too cool language and 'f*ck you all' facial expression, but I love a little punk in my outfit. While it looks especially weird when I walk through a rich neighbourghood in my punkish style, I still loving the feeling of rebellion. I used to always be the good girl, who did her homework and was polite and never mean, so my way to rebel was clothes. All black, short, high heels an neon.

The thing I'm still proud of (This is where the dejavu music would start in movies)...
When I was 13 my best friend of childhood decided to mess with me and went hard-core bitchy. After that she was my ex-best friend and yet cheecky enough to invite me to this church thingy, some christening thing. I didn't want to go but my mom forced me so I put on the most outrageous thing possible. I pulled on a tutu dress, leather jacket and stilettos and paired it with smoky eyes and red lipstick. It looked I have to say awesome. Everyone of course stared at me as if I was some kind of alien but I loved it. Her boyfriend spent all afternoon flirting with me and I just enjoyed my sweet revenge. Good times :) So always remember forget drugs and stuff. Fashion is the most daring way to break rules!

top= totally awesome power

The thing which fills of my closet the most is shirts. I can never bear to throw one away because each has it's own story. The only thing I can bear is making my credit card burn when buying new awesome shirts. I discovered this brand in Florence and a few months later they also had them at home, however for double the price. As previously mentioned I have this obssesion about funny sayings and these shirt are funny, trendy and just sooo cool! The chanel one is one of my faves :)

I feel the industry knows how prone women are to buy when they see a funny shirt, almost like shoes except that you can wear shirts with all weather. Also I love the fashion statement they're making, not everything has to be expensive to be cool and that our so called 'it-girls' are way over rated. Nice to see someone who doesn't take himself or others too seriously ;)

My and my clinging

According to the fact that it's now finally spring I can now finally wear (well more or less) what I want. To however not freeze to death I still wear some winter accessories combined with spring stuff. In this case I finally get to wear my Diane von Fürstenberg heels, which definetly did NOT work in the ice(ever tried walking on ice in wooden heels?!) and my favortie mini-skirt and my much loved leather jacket. I missed my leather jacket soso much! It's basically one of the few things I wear for 3 seasons straight (4 technically but in winter I put another jacket on top).

You know those items you just can bear to put away when a season has ended so you just keep wearing them? My Doc Martens for example, I wear them with shorts, dresses to work, clubbing and to walk the dog. I literally live on them. Or my blazer, whether under a winter jacket or just with a cute crop top. It's a classic and can be styled any way to fit any season. I think we need those basics to get us through the bad days. It's those items we wear on good and bad days and we just always have the comfort of wearing our little good luck charm. My shorts are also something I hate putting away so I usually just pair them with tights and stockings in winter but it's still always the best feeling when I pull them on without any tights for the first time. That fresh breeze around your legs and the comfort of being able to stretch without pants restraining you..... Can't wait for that day ;)

So now tell me what's your all-year piece?

Feels like the 4th of July

What is different? Slowly I open one eye and roll over on my side trying to figure out what has happened. I calmp my eye shut again, bright! I wiggle my toes in a unknown substance, desperately trying to guess what it is. After cautiously opening my eyes for the second time I see what it is: Sunlight! I stare out the window wondering if this means the world is ending or a meteriot is about to hit earth, but no all clear with a blue, blue sky. The sound I couldn't interpret at first are actually birds. There seem to be a few who survived the drastic cold which only just failed to wipe out the whole of humanity. Still in my PJ shorts and shirt I stumble into the bathroom and open the door to the balcony. When I step out my body already braces for the icy cold about to hit me. I squeeze my eyes shut and tense all my muscles to brace my body for the freezing artic temperatures. But I don't turn into ice. Winter seems to finally be over. It is offically spring!!!

I slip into my favorite cowboy boots and blue jeans and make my way outside. My dog is prancing around the GREEN grass, dumbstruck where all the snow went and I still can't believe how warm it is. Ok, I have to admit I'm going drastically overboards here. It's still no where near warm but after the icy cold the 7°C now feel like a desert climate. Oh glory, I can't even tell you how happy I am that my favorite season has begun. Guys? It's officially spring time!!!

WHO cares?

Recently I have come across the greatest mood buster ever (after shopping, but hey at least this is free) it's name is: someecards! If you are feeling down or are so over what people think send them this and they will get the picture. The good thing about fashion is that when you feel bad you can just go buy something and you never ever run out of cool stuff to buy (admit it after some time you just can't see chocolate anymore, takes a lot of heartbreaks but eventually it does happen. Plus fashion doesn't get you to gain weight) 

So now what to do when your broke? When you don't have the money to buy a outfit that will make your boyfriend regret dupming you, or a pair of shoes against problems at the job, a handbag becuase you fought with your friend or sunglasses when you have a headache. You read messages and funny slogans! They are everywhere and fit  to every situation possible. Best sources I would say are tumblr, facebook and someecards, but look for yourself and otherwise the good old google will always do the trick. Even better than putting it on your desktop is using them. Print or draw them on shirt, converse and jeans. Make phone or laptop covers out of them. Write them on the back of your car or stick them all over your room. Live those sayings because life is too short to live with problems ;)
