NEWSFLASH

H&M just announced MATTHEW WILLIAMSON to be the next collection designer for Spring 2009 which hits selected stores April 23rd.
What is to be expected? Neons, clashing prints and billowy silhouettes - to get an inside look on his clothes so far, check out matthewwilliamson.com

I'm excited already. I think colour will be huge summer 2009 and to be honest, I don't have anything pink in my closet yet which is a shame for a girl ;-)

GO PONCHO GO



I don't like winter-fashion that doesn't seem to keep you warm. What is the point of that? If you don't feel (well in) your Outfit, there is no sense in wearing it.

So here is something really cool and practical.

Nice large poncho.. making it more chic with accessorizes like the long and simple necklace with a big casual pendant, belt (for a waist-silhouette) and english-style hat.
Of course.. BIG handbag (just like I LOVE it), I'd prefer black skinny jeans and boots (motorcycle or cowboy-like boots).

Feminine, easy, beautiful AND it keeps you warm.

A COSY WARM MASTERPIECE



TWO THUMBS UP for this Outfit!

Just yesterday i bought myself a cardigan like this (only in a lighter colour.. available at H&M). A must-have for fashionists :)


The way she is mixing the fake fur vest with the checked shirt, loose mini-skirt and fake leather leggings is absolutely perfect to me.

A total 'Get the Look' - piece.

TAKE IT EASY


Mary-Kate Olsen spotted going out for dinner and running errands.
What is so special about it? - Her shoes [most likely vintage - I love them].
Both times keeping the style alike: Oversized long-shirt-dress, accessorizes (big scarf, doublebelt) and the handbag of the season, a long large shoulder bag (can easily be worn across the body).

ROCKERISH VS. CHIC




Two ways to wear this Little modern zipped Black Dress (LBD - already mentioned it in my blog - a must have this season).
Shiny faux leather Leggings and a nice leather Jacket, mixed with sweet Ankle Boots and a Cotton Scarf to keep it a bit urban.
Considering the Dress offers 2 zips (top and bottom), it can be easily mixed with a Blouse to give it a feminine touch (just unzip at the top as much as you prefer), add a thin Belt to appear more classy/business-like and a Cardigan, keep the Ankle Boots.

This Dress is quite simple and can just be worn with Ballerinas too for instance.. just unzip from the bottom to show more legs and you are done.

WARM NOVEMBER

September went to be very cold quite quickly and now, November seems to start to get warmer again.. that's why I can leave my warm jacket at home these days.

BEING CHIC WHEN IT'S GETTING COLDER



Long Tweed Cardigans are very fashionable right now, just as Knitwear in general. It's warm, comfortable and hip.
First I tried something more chic with slightly high-waisted wide-leg Jeans and ankle highheels. Some jewelry to pep it up a bit more.
In the second Outfit I went a bit more for the weekend-look. Very nice with a button-down men's shirt.. also mixable with comfortable heelless boots. And yes, I am a big fan of trapper hats.
