I Am Your Fortune Teller

Today's fortune tellers wear their glass sphere on their feet, didn't you know?

What does a fortune teller do with a fluffy bag you might wonder? Well, this is a secret, never to be revealed.

Not without fulfilling a prejudice: Wearing moon earrings is a must.

You will see my prophecy will come true!

Let's do something completely different! Why not try to create a modern ethnic look? I was never particularly interested in this kind of look, but a visit to the Gaultier exhibition changed my mind. No, I don't restyle something I've seen there, but  the global ethnic motifs of this ingenious designer left their traces. As well this look is a tribute to the Tatty Devine AW2014 collection, dedicated to the mystics of fortune telling and divination. I don't own one of the pieces yet, but I thought it were fun to style an inspired look with something from a past collection of theirs.

I get excited when I find something all new to try out, I just love to transform. Very often I have the impression that a lot of girls just want to be pretty and dresses after this maxim. How boring I say! There is nothing wrong about looking beautiful I agree, but that's really not what fashion is about. Fashion is a game: You can be whatever you want to be. Just dress and play!

Don't fall into the trap of following habits, banish your favourite colour for a day and leave your comfort zone. If you show the world something except your best side, you may discover you have some good sides you didn't see before.

How do you like my fortune teller look lovelies?

Just when we started to wonder if there wouldn't be a new Dazzle & Jolt collection, they come back not just with a bang, but the greatest show on earth. The circus is in town and what a great one it is: Banging colours, roaring lions and all the popcorn you can imagine in your wildest dreams.

While they started with designing t-shirts, there is an exciting premiere happening: Now you can wear Dazzle & Jolt all over prints from head to toe. Their new mini skirt and leggings are just the eye-popping things missing in our lives!

Isabella Blow was known to order whole fashion collections, I consider starting the same, because I can't decide on a favourite. Dazzle & Jolt doesn't just do fabulous fashion, but the two girls behind the label are as well the sweetest things on earth you can imagine. I think we should hurry and empty their stock as fast as we can.

Come on, clear the ring, don't buy mainstream, Dazzle & Jolt is far, far cooler!

Shop the collection here and don't forget to like Dazzle & Jolt on Facebook.

I Just Don't Care

Pompoms Forever: Even better if they are baby pink and worn with towering platforms.

I don't care if anybody thinks I'm wearing my pyjama out today. My blogger friend Jessica-Chelsey recently posted a shirt dress look too and said that she feels like Homer Simpson in his moo moo. I constantly think about this while wearing this look, laughing inside.

It's a relief to wear something with no need to suck in one's stomach. No reason to worry about the big piece of chocolate pie who is suddenly no longer on the plate but in your stomach (Argh: I am the big destroyer of chocolate, no matter if mousse, or bar, nothing is safe from me). Today's look screams out loud: I feel good, I'm comfy and I just don't care about whatever bad you might say about me.

I grew up in a very little village with more cows than residents and back at school there were nasty boys, shouting after me how ugly I am. There was a time when I listened to them and escaped to a world of fantasy books. I spent days dreaming of being a fair storybook princess, wondering why this wasn't me. For a while I was so embarrassed about myself, I dressed as to make myself as invisible as possible.

I am not born a pretty supermodel, and I can never turn into one like millions of other women. But it's ok, because this can't stop a girl with attitude: This is your armor, wear it proud and let it shine in the light like an impenetrable shield. The most beautiful woman is not essentially the most stylish woman and certainly not the most lovely one. Be whatever you are, just be the best one you can be!

Life is just too short to hide, so no invisible looks ever again.

Thanks to Clairey Lou for the lovely ghost brooch.

Friday Favourites

pink favorites, friday favorites, fashion
Pastel Kimono  –  Poodle Necklace  –  Gemstone Earrings
Rose Quartz Ring  – Heart Platform Shoes
Flamingo Lights  –  Turquoise & Pink Dress  – Pink Vivienne Westwood Bag
Pink Bow Shoes  – Pink Flower Kimono

I love Friday Favourites posts on other blogs and always wanted to do something like this for you as well. What kept me back was the fear that I could not manage to publish a post like this on a regular basis every Friday. But today I'm finally brave enough to try. I can't promise a post like this once a week, but maybe every second or third Friday if you like it.

Today I show you what I discovered while browsing the shops, in the future I might include pictures from blogs I love. I am still so lost in a sea of pink and cuteness. I can't imagine arising and leaving candy floss land. There is just no end to desiring more bows, more tassels and more hearts in my flamingo crazy heart. I just wish I could turn the sky pink for a day.

I hope your Friday is lovely, I'm enjoying a happy bank holiday, yay! :-D
Sending you lots of love.

Walking on rainbows: The most shiny platform shoes in the world.

Back to a fruits in fashion look, back to pink hair! The old-new hair colour puts me into a playful mood. It feels like having candy floss on the head, and I instantly want to play with it. Headbanging in pastel pink, yeah!

Whenever it rains, I am wish for a rainbow. After an afternoon full of moody gray clouds, there is nothing more beautiful than a sky filled with colours. There is just too much gray in the world, and I try to bring a little bit of rainbow into the hearts of the people. Rainbow shoes and necklace are part of my master plan.

The shoes are my first pair from YRU. I've been following this label for quite a while and love their extreme platform shoes. My rainbow sandals caused quite a stir when I went out with them for the first time. The chunky sandals trend hasn't arrived in Switzerland and I caught people staring at them. I bet if I would have robbed a bank, nobody of the witnesses would have mentioned a girl with pink hair, just shiny rainbow feet.

So my advice of the day: If you have a bad hair day, just wear shoes like these! Nobody will ever notice it again. Have a wonderful day my lovelies, don't forget your five a day and watch out for rainbows!

You make me happy if you leave a few words, telling me your thoughts about this look.

Interview with Dolls Eyes

Happy birthday to your label Laura! What would you wish for your birthday?
Thank you! I guess I'd have to keep my wish secret or it won't come true but as its you I'd wish for all my customers to love their ILC jewellery and feel amazing when wearing it!

What was the first piece of jewellery you ever made?
It was some necklaces I made for my sisters one Christmas. They had a gold tree with a white dove that could move up and down the chain as if it was flying, they gave me the idea to sell after that!

You just released a new donut themed collection. What are your next plans now?
Have a rest then on to the next collection! Heres a scoop, the next collection is called "Tropics twilight" and is based around my current Tropics collection with a night time twist! Fingers crossed it will be out this September! 

Which of your designs is your personal favourite piece?
Hmmm this question always stumps me! I like experimenting so making new collections is my favourite. I love to create!
What kind of a girl do you imagine to wear your jewellery?
Someone with a confident unique spirit, has a fun sense of humour and expresses her fabulous self with what she wears! Thats my kinda gal ;)

Oh My Lovely Kimono!

Handpainted Hahaha Duster kimono from Discount Universe: The best kimono in the universe I say!

This summer, you certainly can't be without a kimono! This lightweight piece of cloth between cape, robe and scarf is perfect for festivals, the beach or summer in the city. A kimono instantly adds a free-minded touch to your outfits and it's easy to wear. It's rather theatrical how the kimono swings with the wind when you walk, especially if you go for a tasseled version. Unlike a stiff blazer, the breezy kimono is a true relief when the temperature is going up, but you still want something over your shoulders.

It's available in a million of styles and lengths. Inspired by Japanese silk fabrics, a lot of kimonos come with delicate flower prints. Especially if they are in a rather boho style, they often come with tassels on the hem.

You can wear your kimono to nearly everything from hot pants to elegant dresses. I think it looks best with high heels. You may show a lot of your legs. Stevie Nicks already knew about the perfectness of kimonos in the 70s, today it's our turn to rock this piece of fashion!

Will you go for a kimono this summer lovelies?
