Erica Tanov Store, New York

The Erica Tanov store was a coincidental discovery that I made on Elizabeth Street. I was just going for a walk when I noticed the beautiful light bulbs inside hanging down the ceiling looking like tears coming down the wall. See for yourself and let me know what you think.

Colorful outfits will cheer you up on a gloomy winter day

It's been days since my last post. That's because my bottom was glued to the couch sipping hot apple juice with cinnamon and watching different versions of cinderella and Christmas TV. I figured you were doing the same so I tried to not to feel too bad about it. However, it's time to get up and leave the lounging behind. After all, New Year's Eve is approaching and me and my girlfriends mentally need to get prepared for the consumption of 12 gin & tonics. So, the best way to slowly say good-bye to your couch is color therapy by wearing colorful fashion. Unfortunately, Berlin is always gloomy and grey so people will look at you funny if you are wearing more than one piece of red, pink or purple. That shouldn't bother you though. It will eventually put a smile on their faces too.

So here are some "happy" examples for you:

This guy was just too cute, I had to ask for a picture. Can you blame me?

P1050461_style_zoomer_streetstyles_nyc
Do you remember these socks? so 80ies, so happy!

P1050410_style_zoomer_streetstyles_nyc

It wouldn't look that great without the extra large red, plaid scarf she is wearing, would it?

Tomorrow, I have another "happy" theme for you. I photographed Erica Tanov's store in New York. It really is a playground for kids and fashionistas.

A few more pictures taken on a beautiful Saturday at the cemetery in Schoenberg, Berlin.
Don't laugh, please ...LOL! After all the Brothers Grimm are resting here, too.

Let it snow Berlin!

I know everyone is busy with shopping for last minute gifts and running from one Christmas Party to the next. And some of you might even feel bad about  the 323 vanilla and ginger cookies you have been having the past 2 weeks, but don't!  You only have 6 more days to go until everything is over and  you will be stressing about what you are going to wear for New Years Eve.  But the rule is easy. Just make sure you have one shiny/glitter piece and a stunning red lipstick and you are good to go. Enjoy the pics...


This is the hat I have been looking for. Isn't it stunning?

Knit wool outfits rule the streets this winter

If you need an option to wearing a bubble jacket and long johns to keep you warm throughout the winter, you need to reorganize your wardrobe. Try "wooly" outfits and wear several layers on top of each other, even under your pants, like this guy...

Street fashion in Soho and Brooklyn

Forgive me because I am still in my Kitty Cheng haze. Kitty Cheng is a bar that is opening up tonight in Berlin but lucky me and a bunch of other really good looking people had the chance to test the drinks, the audio and the vibe last night before the official opening. I had so much fun although my navy blue vintage Moschino blazer is still recovering on my balcony from all the cigarettes we were smoking last night.

However, before I start detoxing for the day I want to leave you with some street fashion inspiration for the weekend.

This picture could have been taken decades ago. I love this style. Very emancipated and Ingrid Bergman

P1030754_style_zoomer_street_fashion
I love this look. Should we just call him "The Italian"? or is he French? Let's not cause a political discussion but we have to admit his look is very authentic and we know we all need a knit wool sweater like that to get through the winter

Green Design - Recycle what you already have

I was pretty amazed on how much green design was actually lived (not only talked about) when I was strolling through the "Holy Shit Shopping market" in Berlin. It is nice to see that young designers take this topic really seriously- even though for some of them the green idea emerged out of economic pressure such as lack of capital for buying new materials. I guess the slow economy did have some more good sides to it than we thought. Like my mom always says "There is something good in everything bad". Anyhow, I would just say "Bravo guys!"

Unfortunately, I didn't have much time for more pics. Below you will find a few examples on how to reuse some of your oldies.
