“Sentence of the day” Vivienne Westwood

In ART, Iconic Woman on February 20, 2013 at 1:47 pm

I just found that short article going trough bloglovin. It basically tells me, that If Vivienne Westwood thinks that way, it can’t be all wrong, I feel the same!

“The sexiest people are thinkers. Nobody’s interested in somebody who’s just vain with a hole in their head, talking about the latest thing — there is no latest thing. It’s all rubbish.”

Great book about Romy Schneider

In Iconic Woman on February 19, 2013 at 6:42 pm

So what to say about Romy? She always will be one of my favourite style icons, everything about her was special, feminine and naturally elegant. I don’t smoke myself, but I agree that smoking does make some people look interesting (just a shame not all of them are). Romy is one of those women who did smoke, and I have no words when I see those pictures of her with a cigaret in her mouth.

Jane Birkin did know Romy in person, and she said that when she looks at Romy’s pictures or films, you feel like crying seeing her smile. There is something very hard to describe about her, she just had it.

Please check out C’est ma Vie, a blog with gorgeous pictures of Romy Schneider.

Romy did like hats, like me, she even had her own Chanel collection, because Coco Chanel loved her and dressed her up herself! I like her in general, but the pictures of her where I really love what she is wearing, make up included, are the ones from the late 60′ and 70′. Really worth checking them out.

Eating in Berlin

There is something else I love besides clothes and fashion icons, going to cafes and restaurants. I love eating, and to be with people I like in a place I feel comfortable, and I admit I’m quite demanding and critical. So if I really did enjoy a new place, I say so!

I had the best breakfast in a long time, at that beautiful place called Gipfeltreffen, in Kreuzberg, really do recommend it to everyone. Also had a nice Apfelkuchen and a tea at NEST cafe, also in Kreuzberg, lots of space, nice cakes and a place for children to play.

And if you like pizza, forget all the pizza you had, and try De Noantri, the best italian food I had in years, and I eat pizza from time to time. Everything we ordered was genuine, tasteful, simple and soooo nice. I had to talk to the guys who run the place, and tell them so, was really pleased.

What do we really think when we give away old clothes? If I give them to Anziehend, a second hand boutique, of course I know somebody is going to buy them sooner or later, but where do things go when you put them in one of those containers for old clothes? Here you have a nice REPORT from german TV called “Second Hemd” ( german again), I guess I’ll have to translate them all in to english and spanish some day…

First Film at the BERLINALE, Wong Kar Wai!!!

In ART on February 9, 2013 at 4:52 pm

For the very first time, a film from a Chinese director was chosen for opening the BERLINALE!! Here a great video from german TV, ZDF.

I have not seen the film yet, but I can tell you it’s about Kung Fu, with well known actress Zang Ziyi. But the film I hope somebody remembers from Wong Kar Wai, is without a doubt In the Mood For Love. The music, Yumeiji’s theme, can’t forget it anymore, the dresses, can’t forget them either… it’s a masterpiece for me, and we should all watch it again.

Remember the dresses the lady was wearing the whole movie? Click here to see a great review of the film with beautiful pictures where you can see the dresses I mean, found it on this blog called SUM UP FILM.

I saw the scarf and picked it, some colors just work with your skin color, hair and eyes, that’s the great thing about scarfs is it?
