No Decisions: Just have all colours on your shoes, yay!

Ha, I discovered a few rays of sunshine! Time for sandals, flower prints and a crop top with long sleeves (to make sure nobody thinks I'm in the wrong season).

I think crop tops are here to stay. The whole bare midriff thing started as a trend, but it's just coming back season after season, and I couldn't be more happy. I love how they look combined with a skirt, for a look without a frozen belly try a high-waisted one. My kidneys prefer my crop top love that way too, but I wish I were not such a sissy when it came to cold.

When it gets colder, you will see me sneaking from one heated room to another heated room, I'm just no outside gal, no sir! I wish I could wear sandals the whole year and don't like to look like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer whenever I go out.

Once I met an African woman when my skin was very pink from the cold. She looked at me and just said "White people have many, many colours." I still smile when I think about this, and it's so true. Thankfully, the sun is merciful today and the only thing very, very pink is my hair. The only reason I could ever turn into a winter girl would be if my bob turned as pink as my nose in the cold. Oh my gosh, my living room wouldn't see me again!

I hope you're having a sunny day as well, and I'm curious to hear how you like this look.

Skirt: Quiz Clothing, Crop Top: Topshop, Shoes: YRU, Sunglasses: Unif,
Necklace and Earrings: Kanokkorn Lamlert, Rings: Serene Kuhl, Tights: Primark

Thanks to Quiz Clothing for the skirt.

Friday Favourites

friday favourites, fake fur, kawaii fashion
Hands Scarf  –  Resin Bangle  –  Cat Bag
Pink High Heels  –  Bunny Hat  –  Pompom Knit Beanie
Fake Fur Jacket  –  Phone Bag  –  Shoes with Hands  –  Cat Dungarees

And finally, after a long week, the moment you all anticipated is here: It's Friday, yay! Here is something to keep you pink & happy.

Every now and then, somebody declares that either orange, gray or blue is the new black. I don't think there is such a thing as one colour replacing a colour, but pink has been my personal black for quite a while. I recently love to combine different shades together, and I just love my pink hair. I can't imagine to be blond again at the moment. I'm rather a pink candy floss from head to toe, dream a fluffy fake fur, surreal accessories and everything fluffy and cute.

I am very excited for the weekend; there are shoots planed and I am excited to prepare my next giveaway for you. Stay tuned, the secret will soon be revealed. I just love to bring a little bit of cuteness into your life. Happy weekend lovelies!

Please don't forget to tell me, what you like best from my favourites!

What does Homer Simpson love more than anything else on earth? The one and only answer is not his family, his job, his neighbours or his sofa, but Doughnuts! Forget about cronuts they are a strange modern invention, only real doughnuts will do!

The sweet round rings mean the universe to Homer and so do they to my look of the day. My doughnuts are fresh from the I Love Crafty bakery. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have spotted them there; they caused quite a stir. No wonder, because they are even better than real sugar bombs: No greasy hands, but the full dose of sprinkles and sweetness. Rings, Necklaces, collar tips and bangles and all in different designs (or shall I say flavours?) make a decision very tough if you visit the I Love Crafty store. So the best might be to do it like Homer: Take them all!

My neon love, which started in the last outfit post, continues. This time with a top from Desire Clothing and nearly neon coloured hair. For once, I wear black boots, I bet something you didn't see on me for a long time. I just loved the quality, and simple style of those shoes and I can wear them with nearly everything. Even a colour explosion girl like me is now and then comfortable with something that suits every look. While I don't have to loose sleep over what shoes to wear, there is time to focus on other things: Let's say doughnuts!

How do you like this look lovelies?

Lovely Label: Simone Devine

Simone Devine is the eclectic Sydney based label by the duo Simone and Scott. They create and handcraft modern resin jewellery and beautiful vases. Their geometric-shaped and bright statement jewellery turns even the most boring everyday looks instantly into something special. Every one of their pieces is unique and therefore a precious treasure you won't miss again.

Interview with the designer

Hello Simone, tell me a little bit about how and when you started to design jewellery.
Hello! We started one year and a half ago so it's still a relatively new business. It wasn't planned or even preconceived. My boyfriend was working as a surfboard shaper, and I was a visual merchandiser. One night he just said, "I'd like to do something more intricate with my resin skills.", so I suggested, expecting rejection, "What about jewellery?". He replied "Ok, design something." which was a surprise, but a very welcomed one.

You work together as a team with your boyfriend. How do you collaborate? Do you have a special diversion of responsibilities?
Although we do share a lot of the responsibilities and designing, there are some things that are completed individually. For example, I like selling our products, so that's something I do. Scott works with the resin because it's something he is very good at. Some things are better suited or more enjoyed by just one of us.

All your pieces are made of resin. What is your fascination with this material and why is it the perfect choice?
Well, I guess it first started out of convenience as Scott already knew how to work with it. Then as we established our aesthetic it became an integral part of what we create. Colour is an essential component of our designs, and the medium resin helps to capture this.

On your blog, you share inspiration of how to style your jewellery. What would be your dream look to go with your favourite piece?
Something quiet maximalist I think. Although I love how a bright bangle or necklace can set off a more simple outfit, I find it far more interesting when the look is bold and expressive.

How would you describe the importance of accessories for a look?
My best friend once told me "You ARE accessories" because they are always the most important component of any of my outfits. I think accessories can make you feel incredible in a way that is quiet different to clothes. You could practically wear the same outfit every day but by adding different shoes or jewellery you completely personalise the look. I also feel people are prepared to take more risks aesthetically (and I guess physically, when it comes to some shoes) when choosing their accessories. I've sold both clothes and jewellery to women, and I can certainly see a distinct difference in the two; jewellery always makes you feel better when you put it on.

Tell me about three things that inspired you recently.
Leopard Print: It is a common theme in my wardrobe, but not usually an inspiration. We have just created a necklace in ode to the iconic print.
Pink Glitter: I can't get enough of the stuff.
Turquoise: This colour is so refreshing.

Do you have idols who inspire you?
I am most inspired by clever people who look like the are enjoying themselves.

Last but not least: If your jewellery would be music, how would it sound?
Like Bryan Ferry.

Despite my last autumn look, I am back to a summer outfit today. I spent last weekend in a sunny London. The desire to dress to be a walking colour boost is stronger than ever. London always encourages me to be the boldest me I can imagine. Thank you, best place in the world, I love you just so much.

I also went shopping a little at the weekend and bought a few things for winter.  But as long as the weather allows, I'll continue to be your summer girl and stick to my sandals and bare arms. The time for scarves and heavy boots will be long enough. It's good to buy them now and be prepared, but they can stay in the wardrobe for a while.

The current whitish/greyish shade of my hair makes me feel a little bit like an elf. Doesn't it work very well with the bright neons, because of its (almost) absence of colour? It feels edgier than my usual pink hair, especially which those Alexander Wang sunglasses. The lilac hair dye fades even faster than the pink one, and it turns every day into a new shade. Yesterday it was very bluish. I'm going back to pink very soon because my heart just beats for the Barbie colour. But a change is always good, my lovelies. Never stop to change, embrace it and let it carry you away to places better than you could have ever imagined in your dreams!

How do you like this look lovelies?
