Lena Wolf


Lena Wolf is a label from berlin, which I really like, but haven't seen it in reality yet. But I am going to change this.

There is a Lena Wolf Labelstore at the Samariterstraße 38, 10247 Berlin and I am going to visit the store in my holidays, hopefully.
If you are not lucky enough to live in berlin, you should have a look at her website or her daWanda-shop, it's like an etsy-shop but in German language.
Her collection from 2007 makes me think of little red riding hood and there are some pieces, which I'd like to have right now:

this skirt

And I love the location!!!

Basic Clothes: Skirt, black, knee-length

To achieve a wardrobe full of basic clothes I bought a skirt via Ebay. It is black, knee-length and is wrinkled. I really love him!

(skirt-Ebay, white lace top-garage, black top-H&M)

I am sorry for the quality of the picture, but it's dark when I come home and I hate pictures with flashlight, so it is a litte bit blurred and just inside my room.

adidas shopper = a green idea?

Recently many girls from 11th and 12th class are carrying the adidas shopper around, which are available in six different colours. My favourite one is in pink:

Nu een gratis shopper bij een adidas aankoop!

I did some research and found out through a netherlandish blog, that you get them as shopping bags after buying something at adidas. I like this idea, because adidas is avoiding plastic trash by giving their customers free plastic bags and I think the bags are stylish too!

But I still have questions:
Can I have such a bag only, if I buy something at adidas also in Germany?
And relating to the following question: Do I want such a bag? Pink is such a nice colour... =D
Will wearing them be a new trend?
Is giving reusable AND stylish shopping bags the new trend also in Germany? I haven't heard, that many lables are giving their costumers such bags lately. Do you?

So the first question will be unanswered till I have asked someone at my school or have visited an adidas store. Sounds logical, doesn't it?

Referring to the second question, I simply can say, that this pink IS a nice colour. So maybe I would buy one, but I would only use it far away from school, because I don't want to look like a copycat right now. So maybe I will look for one after getting my A-Level.

And relating to the third question: I think at my school and when I look at the boys and girls, while walking down the Ku'Damm, these bags are going to be a new trend. They are showing a green attitude and they are looking stylish. And for me it is a great regard to my country Germany, because if they are produced locally, I support the local economy and save the environment.

The last question makes me think of a post by Susie Bubble from Stylebubble. She has asked her readers if they are using such bags, which she has get from shows, launches, fashion weeks, tradeshows etc... or if they just throw them away.
Most of the readers are keeping the bags. The only difference between Susie and her readers and the pupil at my school is that they don't use them regularly as a substitution for a "real" bag, but rather as an addition to carry supermarket or grocery shopping or books etc... inside.
All in all I think these bags are a great opportunity to avoid plastic bags and the resulting trash, if you reuse them as whatever.

At my family we are using cotton bags since I can think to go shopping or to the library or whatever, so for me it's not a big change, when using them. But I think the idea of using cotton bags instead of plastic bags hasn't arrived in Germany.
For example at McPaper (a papeterie) you suddenly had to buy a plastic bag instead of getting it for free. So you would have thought about taking your cotton bag with you or reusing the plastic bag. But now you get your plastic bag for free again, because the Germans doesn't like the idea of paying for a plastic bag. I think that is very sad!
Another example is that there are not many lables or clothes stores, which would give you a cotton or even a paper bag for your shopping.
So in my opinion the Germans should wake up and do something for there environment!

To do something for the earth and avoid waste, which I produce while I am removing my make up I bought some Washable Cleansing Pads through Ebay.
After I got them, I will tell you if they are a good replacement for normal cleansing pads.

David LaChapelle: Romeo & Juliet (H & M)

I found this advertisement on YouTube. I think it is really beautiful!
And it was directed by David La Chapelle my favourite photograph, so I am really happy to find it. Isn't it wonderful finding things like that by chance?
But H&m had some trubel with it, because due to complaints that the commercial glamorized gang violence and that it was H&M's attempt to use gun culture to sell their jeans to teenagers, H&M subsequently withdrew the ad from Canadian & U.S. markets and issued an apology.
So do you think that H&M was going too far or that they just put the old story about Romeo & Juliet in a new surrounding?

All The Boys Love Mandy Lane

Saturday me and my friends were watching the horrormovie "All The Boys Love Mandy Lane". I think, it was a great film although the end is a bit confusing.
What I liked most was the music:

Making Make up Videos

w trend on youtube?

A close friend of mine has started to do this, because she became addicted to watch other people videos and want to join. There is only a small group of people, who are making this videos in german, so her was given a warm welcome.

Looking Like Lumberjacks?

(shirt-father, hat-brother, longsleeve-vero moda, leggins, shoes-vagabond, scarf-grandfather)

It's an old shirt from my father, which he doesn't want anymore. I really love it, but I'm not quite sure, if it is not way too big. What do you say?
Actually I was not wearing it with a head, because it is my brother's but I do like it, so I want to wear it on a picture.


Some time ago I was on a birthdayparty and I wore this:

streng, edel, anstand, erwachsen, gold, gehoben...

Since I smelled this fragrance the first time, I feel the deep wish to possess it! I don't really know, why it is so good. But I think it's a classic fragrance with a sweet waft, I simply love it!
And on Saturday my wish may be realized...

Poor Audrey!

While searching a picture of Audrey Hepburn for my last post I found this one:

I can't believe she is actually doing this!
Audrey is marvellous, a style icon and very beautiful!
But Paris is the totally opposite and more like... barbie!
I don't like the picture!!! Who does she think she is?

Late New Year...

I love Audrey Hepburn since I was eleven!

Sorry, guys! I'm pretty busy at the time and I'm very sorry for the lack of posts in the past!
I'm approaching to make my A-level in march, april and may, so it is my last semester at school, in which I wanna be good. =D Have to do a presentation, as part of it and I'm really under stress.
That's kind of sad, because it sale all the time and I can't go out to shop. But at the weekend I will proceed with that (hopefully...). Oh, not to forget: I am starting to clean my room, so throw away all the things I don't need anymore and maybe rearrange same things. It will end with cleaning out my closet to have space for new things. So, for this year I have made some resolutions. Here they are in random order:
  • (relating to my lactose-intoleration) I don't want to eat anything with lactose anymore!
  • I want to eat less things, which contains sugar!
  • I want to sleep less and do more! (I can sleep all day and the night and the other day and so on^^)
  • I want to get in touch with my sister more often!!!
  • I want to be really good in school this last semester and make a good A-level!
  • I just want to buy clothes, which I REALLY need! (Who tells me, which I don't and which I do need?)
  • I want to begin to have good, lasting basic clothes and start to integrate some colours, which aren't actually there!
  • I want to try to remove my make up every night!
Did you make some resolutions? And if yes, which one?

In the end I want to show you these two beauties. Now I am seeking the perfect white dress!!!
