I know I'm kind of late...but I just found this usa today video on youtube showing the highlights of the latest Victoria's Secret Show plus some interviews. Wings, dessous and the most beautiful women - a combination one can't get enough of!
Only two more days until H&M is going to broadcast the "Sonia Rykiel pour H&M" fashion show live from Paris. You can watch it at the H&M website: Sonia Rykiel Pour H&MThe beautiful lingerie collection will be available in H&M stores and online from December 5. I can't wait to see it all, I love the silky flowers on the pieces...next year ( from Feburary 20 ) there is going to be another collection of Rykiel. This time it's going to be colourful knitwear...sounds like a good start of H&M designer collections 2010!

I went to the new Primark store in Frankfurt at NordWestZentrum yesterday.I've got to admit that I was a bit sceptical at first but it was really cool. I especially liked the sequin stuff (lots of glitter and glamour party outfits for 10 Euro), boyfriend cut jackets and shirts, and black leather overknee boots (45 Euro). All in all Primark is still the best place to buy basics and party dresses (you may wear just one night) ... I'll be back soon!

I have a thing for "illustrated" plain T-Shirts. Here are some of my current favourites.
First picture: My new shirt - an invitation to a masked ball - from H&M (left) and a similar "antique" design from Urban Outfitters (right).
Second picture: The new creation from 5 Preview (left) - it will be available in their online shop in December 2009, I personally like it a lot. On the right, the best version of the Wolf shirt I have seen in ages. It's from Lazy Oaf (brilliant as usually).
Third picture: If you (like me) cannot wait for "Where the Wild Things are", this is the shirt to get! It's from Urban Outfitters again. On the right: Danny Roberts' beautiful illustrated shirt. Almost a classic.
This drawing is dedicated to the adorable Louise Ebel aka Miss Pandora. It's crayons and watercolour. Unfortunately some of it is missing because my scanner was too small for the entire picture and it could not capture all nuances.
I'm also in LCF's "Pigeons & Peacocks" Blog!

Über den Wolken, muss die Freiheit so grenzenlos sein - whenever I'm down I remember how high I was when I took this picture.
Surprise, it's sunny today! I can actually see the blue sky. That makes me think of spring...
This year in spring I went to Paris and it was lovely. I suppose Paris is beautiful any time of the year but nothing beats a hot day in the "jardin des tuileries", when everybody is sitting around the big pond and enjoying the sun.
