DANISH MODERN CHRISTMAS (WITH HINTS OF JAPAN)









Chistmas decoration ///
Origami Lilies used as Christmas star decoration (made by me)
applicata candle sticks and Christmas elves
HAY Design tablets and desktop set, used as an Advent wreath
Ikea ball ornament and porcelain snowflakes DIY
Herrnhuter Christmas stars and simple holiday lights

When it comes to interior design, I love simple, airy, clean things - with a touch of vintage (check out my living section for more impressions of my flat). Even my Christmas decoration reflects that. We love traditional German stars from Herrnhuter as well as tiny pieces from Ikea that don't cost a fortune. Also, Danish pieces like these amazing candle sticks were a must-have for me. I love combining old and new things, so my cabins and my credenza from the 60s work well with these modern pink, white and grey candlesticks from applicata.

I also do have a big love for all things Japanese (including animes and mangas - I'm currently obsessed with the new Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Moon Crystal, an adaption of the original manga) - so an origami DIY was a must for me too! The lilies are a traditional folding pattern and the remind me so much of Christmas stars. I will use these for Easter holiday, too!

Sorry, no outfit posts this year anymore, I lost a bid of my blogging mojo - but it will be back, don't worry ;)

WINTER KATE LOVE!

















My Winter Kate collection ///
Devi bed jacket (2013)
Anjali blouse (2012)
Padma dress (2012)
Himalaya kimono
Jasmine kimono
Emma dress
Camilla dress
Lila shorts

Whupps, that's what I call a massive collection! I'm so sad this line doesn't longer exist, as the pieces are really well made and  they are so bohemian! Made of silk, cotton and other natural textiles, these garments are sure to sit in your wardrobe forever and age beautifully!

Sorry for the lack of new outfit posts, I do have a lot of work commitments these days and that's a good thing ;)))

BLACK FRIDAY FIND: JEN'S PIRATE BOOTY

New in ///
Jen's Pirate Booty Tango shorts (via Free People)

Aren't these shorts a killer? They are the perfect match for my black and golden vintage waistcoat that is sitting in my wardrobe for some years (featured here). Definitely will be wearing these during winter with thighs, boots and a jumper!

NEW IN: THE PERFECT HATBAND


New in ///
OOAK hatband (via Etsy)

Do you remember my hat diy after my peacock feather hatband got broken?
I fixed it with a silk scarf by Liberty's, but I wasn't totally happy with the result. Now, I found the perfect hatband for my blue felt fedora. This Ooak hatband in blue (first one in the second pic) is just amazing and totally matches with my hat. It now is not longer what it used to be, but it's quite a brilliant style that absolutely matches with my hippy-tastic bags!

Linking to Style Crone's hat attack!

NEW IN: SUMMER DREAMING IN EARLY WINTER



New in ///
Vintage Mexican tunic with angel sleeves (via Ebay)
Winter Kate Lila silk shorts (also Ebay)

Buying winter clothing in winter?! Ridiculous! ;)))
Found these beauties on Ebay, thought a while about then and couldn't resist. Both items are fab for our US road trip as well as for popping to the supermarket when temperatures are going to rise next year.

My Winter Kate collection is growing! I guess I only do own more items by All Saints, but my Winter Kate collection is massive. Will prepare a separate post about it soon! The clothes are well made, nicely designed and high quality. Bought second hand or in the sale, they are quite affordable.
