here is what I said (translated);

1. What are the trends in coming 2011 S/S?
On the runway we saw a lot of optimistic bright and vivid colors, minimalistic silhouettes, clinic whites and various ethnic themes. Other trends that absolutely can't be underestimated are the Asian themes as seen in Louis Vuitton, 70's themes with flare and wide legged jeans (also seen with a rock n' roll attitude) and Chloe's ballet theme.

I'm keeping an close eye on Carven, Ryota Shiga, Dimepiece and Sretsis

Jan Taminiau and for SS2011 it's Chloe's Hannah MacGibbon

4. What are the fashion items a woman should possess in 2011S/S season?

Chloe ballet flats, Leather biker jackets, ethnic/Asian printed dresses

5. What’s your basic items in 2011 S/S

Meet Whizzbee

TopShop Monochrome Brogue, Whizzbee the mouse

Meet Whizbee, my new fuzzy (and stinky) pet, I got him and his little brother for Christmas!
They are really up to no good what I love, they harass the cats as much as they harass them, love it!

The TopShop brogues are fake leather/plastic and run a bit small (for me half a size bigger would be perfect) so I can't walk a whole day on them.

They do look nice on the feet, I often have a problem with brogues because they look kind of chunky on me but these are look-wise perfect for me. I really wish they would come in leather, I mean Whizzbee didn't even wanted to chew on them which says a lot about the quality and the plastic smell! So the $55 price tag seen the quality is a lot and it would really come down on how well they look on your feet. Personally, I will replace them as soon as I find similar ones in leather (vintage or new)

Hopefully the weather stops sucking soon because this gloomy mess of lately makes me go mental :)

Now, how delicious is the metal + sheer silk combination?
Love Fannie Schiavoni's metal harnesses!

btw .... I already finished the entire jar of Lilac hair dye, I seriously have to redo it every other day and while it really shows in day light I want it to be totally vibrant like this, so I'm seriously thinking while getting new Lilac dye tomorrow to really bleach the living hell out of my hair tips/ends, and to do it myself.. does anyone now whats the best bleach to use?

Anywho KOBRA Jacket

I'm wearing; Anywho KOBRA Jacket, Vintage Kimono, TopShop velvet leggings, H&M clogs

The ladies from the blog did a design collaboration with Danish brand KOBRA and opened up shop. I'm so happy I could get my hands on one of the designs because the jackets, coats and coatigans are amazing, the simplicity and volume in the cashmere/wool fabrics make the coat really versatile, fun to style and comfortable to wear.

oh, the prices in their shop are in the Danish currency but 1 ddk is about 0.18 dollars (I just looked it up).

You can see Maria from vanillascented and Susie Stylebubble wearing different Kobra coats here and here and a awesome look of my coat in blue here...

simple diy flower hair brooch

Wearing; Vintage floral romper, TopShop heart tights, frye engineer boots, vintage belt, diy flower hair brooch.

The diy flower hair brooch is almost too simple to call a diy but its still always a killer for spring time;

Whenever I see somewhere silk flowers I buy them (I found these in fabric stores).. Because I like to play around with them I never glue them to getter or attach them in a way that I won't be able to re-use them...

Here I just picked a few I liked and twisted them together and pinned them in my hair using regular hairpins and clips.

btw. Yes my hair tips are still Lilac (can't really see it in the grayish photos though), the color fades out really fast so I have to redo it like twice a week :/
