I’m a huge “American Horror Story” fan – currently watching season 5 (“Hotel” – and Lady Gaga really deserved that Golden Globe for her role as “The Countess”!) and I love it! My favorite season is “Freak Show” and I’m probably the biggest fan of Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars. These days I was actually pretty sad about the death of David Bowie because I fell in love with → Jessica’s performance of “Heroes” – and the song itself –  on the show.
But for this outfit, I chose season 3, “Coven”, the one about the witches, all dressed up in black for important occasions and looking pretty rad. I kind of mixed the style of the series with that of another one called “Scream Queens”, which, to be honest, I’ve not watched yet but seen a few pictures and kind of liked the styling (that’s where the fuzzy jacket of my look came from). :)

So that’s how my “AHS: Coven meets Scream Queens” look was born. I’m wearing a basic flared dress paired with my Chewbacca (let’s bring in a little Star Wars too!) jacket and overknee boots. For that special touch (you already know I like to make all-black looks more special with an extra something), I finally wore a head wrap again (it’s a huge vintage silk scarf from my mother), my red Gucci bag (with a shortened strap) and added shiny silver details – the belt and my favorite sunnies.
Yes, that’s a very extravagant outfit – and that’s why I love it even more. :) Some time ago I read this quote on Insta: “Dress like you’re already famous!” – my motto for 2016 and the future. :) There’s no reason to hesitate about dressing up whenever I feel like it, and it just reinforces my words from 2015 even more: wear whatever you want, whenever you want!

That’s the last outfit we got to shoot before Hamburg decided to switch into rain mode for, like, forever. The moment I stood in position, ready to shoot, it was like the world decided to show us how much rain was saved in those dark clouds. People walking by the bus stop in front of me (and those sitting in the buses – hello!) must have thought that I’m totally insane, but work is work, right? After the shooting I felt like I had been dipped in a pool backwards – got a hot cup of tea at home and wrapped myself up on the couch. So obviously what I said a few posts ago really happened: more rain, more wind, more darkness and more “I don’t want to go outside!” – and why should I? To get soaked, catch a cold and stay alone at home in bed with loads of tea and medicine? I don’t think so! Let’s hope for some better weather soon, I’d love to shoot again next weekend! :)

Today, I’ve got an idea for a party look for New Year’s Eve for you. Last time going outside with bare legs. I hope that you all will party inside most of the time if you wear such an outfit, cause I know now what it feels like to get into the typical bad weather on NYE (at least I don’t know other weather that night, I guess all my life it was raining at midnight…) – and you don’t want to do this, believe me. :) You better pack an extra pair of warm boots, haha! ;)

Anyways: Christmas and NYE are the best time to shine and sparkle, that’s why I got this dress and paired it with some fun blue heels. Since it’s definitely going to be cold outside (that’s a fact, unless you’re celebrating at the beach – and I’m already jealous!), I added a fuzzy jacket and fixed it with a belt. Of course, it makes me look like a tiny thick teddy bear, but I guess everybody looks a bit fatter in such jackets, right? And it’s about having fun with your clothes and I definitely like the combination – it’s a statement! But as the dress looks great alone, you’ll get to see a few pictures of me freezing in the rain, just for you. And please excuse the poor quality of the pictures, it got darker and darker with every click. Sad story, I really wanted to shine but had no chance against the clouds… :(

ENBe prepared – this is a shoe love story. :)
When I first saw these beauties as a preview on → Sue’s Instagram account, I knew that these shoes would be mine. I’d do everything to get them as soon as they were available. I waited and waited, checked the Nike online store for news on when they’d be released and already phoned a few sneaker stores one week before their launch to know if I’d be able to even reserve a pair (of course, I wasn’t the only one who had fallen in love at first sight – the Internet was full of love declarations and I was seriously afraid that I’d miss them). But no, no reservations.
The release date was first postponed, then moved back to the original day and so I tried it again, gave the Nike Store here in Hamburg a call and they had already arrived on exactly that day, a few days before the official start. Lucky me! :)
I’m pretty sure I’ve never made it downtown that fast and have never tried on a pair of shoes that quickly – after three minutes, they were mine. And that’s how a non-sneaker person became a sneaker person. :) Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m still a high heels lover (as a little dwarf, they’re just better for me, making me look taller than I am and creating loooong legs – and actually more my style, sneakers mostly just don’t look good with dresses), but I’ve definitely been wearing sneakers more often since I got them. :)

DEIch warne euch vor – das ist eine Schuh-Liebesgeschichte. :)
Als ich diese Hübschen als Preview bei → Sue auf Instagram gesehen hab’, wusste ich, dass die Schuhe mir gehören würden. Ich würde alles dafür tun, um sie zu bekommen, sobald sie erhältlich sind. Ich habe also gewartet und gewartet, den Nike Onlineshop immer wieder gecheckt, um zu erfahren, wann sie rauskommen, hab’ sogar diverse Sneaker-Shops angerufen, um zu fragen, ob ich sie reservieren kann (ich war natürlich nicht die Einzige, die sich auf den ersten Blick verliebt hat, und hatte deshalb wirklich Angst, sie zu verpassen). Aber nein, keine Reservierungen.
Dann wurde der Release-Termin verschoben, wieder zurück auf den ursprünglichen Tag gesetzt und so hab’ ich es dann einfach nochmal versucht, beim Nike Store hier in Hamburg angerufen und erfahren, dass sie genau an dem Tag schon angekommen waren – früher als geplant. Glückliche Lu! :)
Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass ich noch nie so schnell in der Stadt war und auch noch nie so ratzfatz ein Paar Schuhe anprobiert hab’ – nach drei Minuten waren sie mein. Und so wurde aus einem Nicht-Sneaker-Menschen ein Sneaker-Mensch. :) Sind sie nicht wunderschön? Natürlich bin ich immer noch ein großer Fan von High Heels (als kleiner Gartenzwerg sind hohe Schuhe einfach besser für mich, mit denen ich etwas größer aussehe und die mir laaaange Beine zaubern – und irgendwie passen sie ja doch mehr zu meinem Stil, denn Sneaker schauen zu Kleidern meistens nicht sonderlich gut aus), aber seit ich die hier habe, trage ich eindeutig öfter mal Sneaker. :)

ENFrom time to time, I like to wear outfits that obviously are a little provocative – not for me, but for others. This one caused some discussion on Instagram whether it’s okay that you can see my nipples or not (actually, the body is a little see-through but no nipple alarm, I promise!) and that underwear may only be worn in your bedroom (seriously?!). Well, I’ll leave it like that – because I really loved wearing this outfit. :) It made me feel sexy but in a very casual way.
We shot this outfit after a visit to my hairdresser and I’m very happy about the different hairdo in these pictures. I wish I could do this but I’m all fingers and thumbs when it comes to hair styling… You can’t be a pro at everything, right? ;)

DEAb und zu trage ich wohl gerne Outfits, die ein bisschen provokant sind – zwar nicht für mich, aber für andere. Dieses hier hat eine Diskussion bei Instagram ausgelöst, bei der es darum ging, ob es okay ist, dass man meine Nippel sehen kann oder nicht (der Body ist zwar leicht transparent, aber ich schwöre, dass es keinen Nippelalarm gab!) und dass Unterwäsche nur ins eigene Schlafzimmer gehört (ernsthaft?!). Ich lass’ das jetzt einfach mal so stehen – denn ich hab’ das Outfit wahnsinnig gern getragen. :) Ich hab’ mich darin ziemlich sexy gefühlt, aber auf eine ganz lässige Art und Weise.
Wir haben das Outfit nach meinem Besuch beim Friseur geshootet und ich freue mich sehr, auf den Bildern mal ein anderes Haarstyling zu tragen. Ich wünschte, ich würde das auch hinkriegen, aber irgendwie bin ich absolut unfähig, wenn es um Frisuren geht… Man kann ja nicht für alles ein Profi sein, oder? ;)
