Guess what, today I finally made it into a wool shop and I sped my entire money afternoon trying to make a choice. Didn’t expect that it would be that difficult!!! Finally I left the shop with a big smile, lots of wool and a very positive feeling about no more boring winter evenings and very cashmere winter days!

Carey Mulligan for Vogue US October 2010 by Peter Lindbergh, spotted at fashiongonerogue.

Some days ago I wasn’t really happy about my hair, about the weather and about the chaos in my closet. So I cruised the city for something that could make me feel better. Well, I didn’t find anything that would solve my misery! No, I didn’t!!!
Usually after days like that I come home at least with something that will boost my inner beauty. Sometimes I pass my favorite hairdresser with the big wish: “Please make me look totally different, but don’t change anything!!! So this time I checked out this new magazine store and there she was. Carey Mulligan smiling at me from Vouge cover with the perfect hair and a package of charm you can’t order anywhere. Next time at the hairdresser I will pull out her picture and keep dreaming!
have a nice weekend!

Lets get this week started with some snap shots from vintage heaven. I’ve been to the opening of the second Garments store in Berlin Mitte. What a great place! When Astrid Lafos and Sandra Keil aren’t busy styling some film stars, they spoil you with the most magic outfits and accessories in their vintage treasure box.

My very favorite moment of the week: Sunday morning.
These magic 4h (for the early birds) are simply the best when there is
1. a great light when you open your eyes, gives the true comfort that it’s gonna be a great day
2. the good Sunday morning smell coming through the window
(smelling the neighbor’s coffee machine and his morning cigarette)
3. a croissant from the bakery and enough milk in the fridge to make the perfect caffé latte
4. a great breakfast with champagne, home made strawberry jam and fresh baguette
5. soundtrack by Feist

have a nice Sunday morning and a good hair day!

Solarium, A film by Moses Berkson starring Lykke Li.

Today I haven’t been as lykkelig as I wanted to be.  Lykke Li in concert – sold out within in a second. Ouch! For all those who will also drop a tear into a glass of red wine tonight ,  enjoy her short movie in the desert of love.

“A major heart break and a post tour depression drove a very delusional LL out to the desert with some friends and a super 8 camera. A major sun burn later, some shattered mirrors, I found myself, my ego, my thoughts, my expectations and my image to be a burden, hard to get rid of, if ever possible?
Silence my dear, let the images speak and listen to the sound of my broken drum.

How can one just be?”

Today is one one of these October Mondays I have a hard time to stand, cold and boring. It’s time for a light and tender post. I am totally in love with the new Chloé Spring collection 2011 presented in Paris.
Are you ready for a beige spring?
