Lovely Shopping Finds & Rainbow Thoughts

Time for another wish list post! I thought we all need a new dose of colours in our life. As you know, I always loved rainbows, not just since what happened in Orlando, not only at Gay Parade and not just after I discovered how many narrow-minded and intolerant people we have in the world.  Therefore, this wishlist is bright and packed with all colours; this is what the world needs more!

I wholeheartedly agree with all the rainbow stands for as a symbol: Yes to peace, yes to diversity and another yes to equal rights for everybody, no matter what gender or sexual orientation!

Wearing rainbow is the ultimate colour decadence: Why choosing if you can have them all? It's like meeting all of your friends together, like eating a whole cake instead of restricting yourself to a single piece. Why do other people have difficulties to decide if they want to go for marble gray or elephant gray? I just don't understand and overtake them with full rainbow power. Rainbow is not just fashion; this is a philosophy!

Be inspired to wear the most colourful piece you own today and please let me know what you like best from my shopping finds.

I am mermaid-crazy, not just since they are super-trendy, but it already started in my childhood. I can still sing a few songs from Ariel the Little Mermaid (my first CD ever) and have the movie on my shelf and don‘t care if anybody thinks this is childish. I believe we should never stop dreaming about fairy tales, no matter how old we are.

When I found this cute pastel cardigan it was like a jackpot: If there is anything better than mermaids, it must be mermaid cats! Imagine a bunch of fluffy cats with fish tails having adventures in the sea. Their mighty mercat-king is always swimming ahead with its trident; others play the underwater harp and catch mer-mice. I make strange sounds whenever I see a cat, just thinking about their fish-tailed fantasy relatives makes me giddy.

The baby blue top/dress (not so sure how to call it) is like made for a mermaid outfit: Doesn‘t it look like a siren‘s tail? I shopped this look when I was in London a few weeks ago, and therefore it reminds me of the beautiful days I spent there. I even had a bath in a bubble pool wearing those clothes at the Galeria Melissa (see post here). I was so excited I even lost my sunglasses in the pool. Luckily it was a cheap pair, not my Miu Miu glasses.

Life under the sea isn't without dangers; every mermaid needs to know...

My Outfit:
Cardigan: Miss Patina, Blue Top: Twist x Turn, Handbag: Kate Spade,

Lovely Fashion Finds: Oh My Cactus

The three icons of fashion and home accessories of the moment: The pink flamingo, the juicy pineapple AND…THE SPIKY CACTUS! 

From Dolce & Gabbana to Topshop, a lot of labels have been inspired by the Wild West and took a new fresh take on it. It‘s been too long since the cactus has been treated as a not very desirable plant. Finally, he has his big moment to leave behind roses, sunflowers, and hydrangeas. This summer's cactus items are bright and colourful, just right to bring desert vibes into your wardrobe. You don‘t have to be a cowgirl to fall in love with them.

While high street fashion jumped very recently on the cactus trend, a few forward thinking labels started to bring the spiky plant from the shadows into the spotlight years ago: The green plant was one of the stars of the Jeremy Scott SS12 season and many labels from Kenzo to Markus Lupfer went cactus crazy since then. The D&G man AW16 collection stirred the attention for the spiky green fellow even more, and I say now it's the right moment to bring some cactus into your life too for a tropical style party.

"Are you ready for festival season?", all fashion magazines and newsletters want to know as the evenings get slowly lighter. "Shut up" I hiss as an answer and feel the instant urge to turn my head.

I never went to a festival in my whole life. I avoid huge crowds of people on limited space, and (while I like music covers) I certainly don't like to get covered in mud. I don't like camping. Or rain. Or people acting silly while being drunk. And no, the fact that I am a music lover can't make up for the disadvantages of festivals at all.

But well, have a look at my outfit: If I would wear wellies instead of flamingo heels, I'd be so so ready for the most colourful festival of the season. But maybe exactly this is the root why I don't need festivals: I allow myself the liberty to dress up on a regular day. I don't need an excuse to put on a flower crown and be a vision with rainbow pom poms and bright prints. Wearing an outfit like this makes me feel festive no matter if it's Monday, Tuesday or any other day. It's like having an unbirthday party, every day (including your birthday).

Glastonbury and Coachella we will never meet, I am (not) sorry. While Alexa Chung and Kate Moss get covered in mud, people will catch me humming a summer tune while I'm taking a stroll in my neighbourhood. That's how I roll.

My Outfit:
Bodysuit & Scarf (used as a belt): L.O.M., Skirt: Dotti's, Shoes: Madame Flamingo,
Earrings: FABcessories, Flower Crown: Pearls & Swine, Bracelet: Vintage
