ANYTHING CROPPED. This is the outfit I wore to the London Fashion Weekend event. We finally got around to shoot it out in the backyard on a sunny afternoon. Lately I’m somewhat obsessed with crop tops. Perhaps it’s all the rays of sunlight and the Spring kicking in (most trees start blossoming already, yay!). I just think that cropped tops give an outfit a really nice silhouette, depending on the skirt or pants combined with, of course. And with a pair of heels it’s hard to get it wrong.
FASHION WEEKEND. On Friday a friend and I attended the London Fashion Weekend and even though we literally didn’t buy a thing, save for a few glasses of bubbly, the experience was a lot of fun. About 80 designers and brands took part in this season’s consumer fashion showcase; amongst them brands such as House of Harlow, Muubaa, Kat Maconie, etc. Levi’s also set up a pop-up store including a stage showcasing aspiring artists throughout the weekend. Our feet needed rest and so we sat down for the performance of singer-songwriter (anyone else tired of that title/description?) Indiana. To be honest, I don’t think the acoustic set did the singer justice. There was something odd about that single electric guitar accompanying her. But after checking a couple of her videos on YouTube I realised that her music, which she describes as ‘moody electronica with 80s inspired synths and haunting vocals’, makes sense and isn’t half-bad. It’s actually convincing. I’m definitely gonna keep an eye on her. All in all it was a very enjoyable evening full of fashion, music, and most importantly people watching (let’s be honest, that’s the best part about these fashion events anyway, isn’t it?).
CHUNKY HEELS. The other day I took my blue suede shoes out for a stroll. And when I say stroll I mean it, because they are one of the most comfortable pairs of heels I own. Sure, they are chunky and probably remind you of another (and perhaps fashion confused?) decade, but I don’t care – they are blue and I think they’re great. One most likely either loves or hates them. Which side are you on?
LONDON FASHION WEEK. Yesterday I helped out at a London Fashion Week event that was organised by the Estonian Embassy and held at one of the International Fashion Showcase venues. The showcase features emerging designers from across the world – all together 140 designers from 27 countries. And oh how gorgeous the garments were! It’s incredible what kind of talent is out there. Zippers, dinosaurs and shapes like intestines – yep, it was all there. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the camera with me and had to take all pictures with my iPhone , so please excuse the quality of the photos.
MY HOMETOWN. I state it outright: Dresden is the most beautiful city in Germany. And if you haven’t been there yet – GO! It is only a two hour drive South of Berlin and makes for a wonderful day trip if you are visiting Berlin. Whenever I go back to visit friends and family, I fall in love with the city’s stunning baroque and rococo architecture over and over again. You can probably see from the pictures the overwhelming and stunning grandness of the old city center.
