This February, Indonesian-based fashion brand Schmiley Mo presented their new quirky collection "The story of Henry" at London Fashion Week. The main character is a cheery chicken with big dreams named Henrietta, who goes by the nickname of Henry. Henry came to show that out of the egg shell you can be everything you want and find happiness without asking other people for their approval.
Schmiley Mo, the label of Indonesian blogger Diana Rikarasi, is a whimsical and playful fashion brand, founded in 2010. The label is a great source for playful fun clothes for daily wear. Their loose-cut signature allows layering as many pieces as you want together. The story of Henry is the third collection of Schmiley Mo.
In this fun collection, Diana Rikarasi features a creative twist on knit and crochet, combined with denim, fringes, and polka-dotted tulle. I am head over heels for the bubbly pieces and can't wait for Henry to join my wardrobe! Come here chick, chick, chick!

I loved pink for a long time, but recently it's becoming more: It started to turn into what black is for others. I feel like a veil was lifted from my eyes and I can see clearly now: There is no colour that doesn't go with pink, there really isn't!
While I always liked to combine my favourite colour with blue, yellow or red, I just discovered how flashy pink looks with lilac or with a bit of orange. I never liked orange, but look: Mixed with pink that suddenly changes. There seems to happen a kind of magic between the two of them (maybe you can call it love ;-) ).
The longer I live as a pink girl, the less I understand why most people's basics are black or gray. There is nothing against those "colours" if you like them (unless it's beige, this is just terrible in my opinion), but why not being a little bit more playful and fill your wardrobe with the bold diversity of a box of coloured pencils?
Besides the colours, there are many things I like about this looks: All the cute cats and the fact that the outfit reminds me of Japanese street style looks – especially because of the platform shoes. But I am not done yet: I want to see what else can be done with pink. Let's combine it with everything I haven't tried yet!
Be prepared for more colour mix looks! Gray can stay home for a long, long time!

Hello CeliaB SS17! My favourite fashion designer released her next collection, and while I think all her collections are (colour) bombs, this one is even called Spanish Bomb! and truly fulfills the expectations of this powerful title.
With this collection, the Asia-based designer Celia Bernardo returns to her Spanish roots and merges her original signature designs with spectacular ruffles and bold, colourful prints. The Latin influence is apparent in the delicate embroidery, the mesh textile and the explosive use of colours.
For the third time, CeliaB worked together with Natacha Duarte who made the prints for the collection. This time the Portuguese artists created a land of wonder where everything is possible with dreamy fantasy leafs and flowers, colourful peasants and dotted jaguars.
Celia's passionates goal for Spanish Bomb! is to bring happiness into our world and I believe who looks at the fantastic pieces can feel this immediately. Her fashion is for bold, strong women who are feminine and individual, yet playful and it's such a relieve to see something as unique as her work in a world where people tend to dress the same. It must be a lot of fun wearing those mind-blowing pieces, therefore: Yes, I want to be a Spanish Bomb!
You can shop the collection here and watch this video to find out more about CeliaB:

Yesterday, for the first time this year I felt spring approaching. I watered the plants on the balcony without freezing, and the sunrays tempted me to sit into my baby blue Acapulco chair for a few minutes. Oh yes, I anticipate the warmer weather coming back!
Inspired by the beautiful light, I started to compose this wish list post, and I bet you are not surprised it turned out all spring-like and colourful. How I would love to wear everything together to a smashing look...
I love all my fluffy coats, but I am so so ready to put them aside till next winter. I want to wear my highest heels without fearing to slip on icy streets, and I am looking forward to fewer layers of clothes. Please, please, please sun, say you are here to stay. I‘ll do my best to pick up piece after piece of my spring wardrobe in the meanwhile to look like a sparkling rainbow when the flowers start to sprout.
Which pieces of this wish list do you like best and what are your must-have spring items?

When you return to the cloakroom of a posh restaurant after having dinner, and the lovely lady awaits you with your coat in her hands, telling you she remembers its gorgeousness, you might have done something right. Maybe you might have shopped at Selfridges. This post is not sponsored by my beloved high-end department store in London (I wish it were ;-) ), but I have to tell you a little story about what Selfridges means to me:
Years ago there used to be a design intern in London. Like most interns, the one called Sara didn't have a lot of money. Nonetheless, at weekends I loved to walk through Selfridges. I adored the more than 4000 pairs of shoes in the building, the flamboyant designer robes and of course the extraordinary windows. In the end, I always left with some tea, a few cookies or a hand cream and I was happy to have a little part of the shopping world that I loved with me. A piece of the place with the ladies wearing Chanel from head to toe, perfect makeup and expensive handbags.
A few years later it's time for an announcement: Ladies and gentleman, may I present my first major Selfridges shopping? I mean from upstairs, where the real treasures are, not from the high street section. May I present my Shrimps coat?
I was fed up with cheap and bad quality coats, I just needed a good one this year, and only the best silky faux fur could do. The happiness I feel whenever I wear it was worth every penny. Sometimes a girl just needs to treat herself!
