Why did it never occur to me before to decorate sunglasses?
 I can't understand anymore why they have to be plain.

This is a necklace which helps making decisions: Just ask a question, shake it and it will tell you
 the answer. At the moment it says yes.

It slightly starts to rain, but that's no reason to stop smiling!
Especially not with an umbrella fitting to the outfit.

It's more than a year since Amy Winehouse died. I always admired her remarkable voice, but more than that I loved the picture of her being in that beautiful house in Camden. Amy sitting in dusty bars and pubs, buying something late at night in a corner shop. Camden is one of my favourite parts of London and for me, Amy is a shining symbol of this place!

That's why I couldn't resist to buy a Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry knot blouse. I love the retro look of it. It shows pink Cadillacs, a kissing couple, records, music notes and dices, all drawn in a beautiful comic style. The Amy Winehouse Collection has been designed by Amy herself and was released after her death.

Camden is famous for it's punk style. So I thought I needed at least one edgy piece to go with my outfit and chose a studded denim jacket. In the end, just something vintage was missing, cause there are many cool vintage shops in Camden too. In fact Camden is where I came to love vintage and discovered the first of this kind of shops. I choose an amazing polka dot skirt from Blenda Vintage (Zurich). It makes a wasp taille and I think it looks like it was made to be combined with the blouse.

I am especially proud of my glasses, because I decorated them myself after a DIY found on Honestly…WTF, my one and only favourite DIY blog. They are inspired by D&G's fall collection and it's very easy to make them on your own. I just ordered a pair of cat eye glasses on Ebay and some beautiful ceramic flowers on Etsy and used a little bit of glue to bring this things together. If you wanna have your own flower glasses as well, just go for plain glasses and keep in mind that they should have a broad frame.

Do I have any Amy Fans among my fans and what do you think about my outfit and glasses?

My Outfit:
Jacket: Topshop, Blouse: Fred Perry Amy Winehouse Collection, Skirt: Blenda Vintage (Zurich), Necklace: Me & Zena, Shoes: Melissa, Sunglasses: Ebay (modified after a DIY at Honestly…WTF)
