PROENZA SCHOULER PS1

Ps1 Proenza schouler lisforlois
Bag I Tasche: Proenza Schouler

Just before I left for Ghana last November, I made the deal of my life.

I've been a huge fan of Proenza Schouler ever since I started this blog, it all started with Kate Hudson wearing the PS11 in dark red, and since then my love for their designs and their runway fashion, but especially the Proenza Schouler bags has just grown and I've become very fond of the idea of one day owning a PS1 or PS11.

I could have bet a million that my first PS1 wouldn't be black or subtle. I just never settle for anything classic (in my crazy brain that somehow equals boring although I really want to become a classic elegant sophisticated lady one day.. one day) that is truly timeless when it comes to designer splurges.. I kind of always want something special. After all that shit is expensive, the least it can be is AMAZINGLY SPECIAL.

I found the craziest deal and I bought it without thinking twice: PS1 in suede in blue.
It's made of the softest of leather and the color is very bright. Since it's suede getting it dusty kind of is a bit of a deal breaker, especially since the brightness of the leather is slightly dimmed (wasn't the wisest idea to run across the markets of Ghana with this bag!) and I'm yet to find out how to best care for the leather and clean it. Also I wouldn't run around rainy weather with it!

Since I'm not sure anymore if it's the tiny or medium (don't recommend large, because it's just too bugly) but I ended up paying ca. 656€ for it and saving almost have if it was the tiny that's priced at 1295€ in my colour ways and suede. Girls theoutnet.com (also mentioned this in my  is the best address to make the best designer deals. And their shipping is super fast too. I kid you not, I had my bag the next day..

I really couldn't be any happier with my purchase..

I have shown you one way to style it already here on the blog in an outfit post (click here) and it has made another appearance right during Fashion Week (check out how I styled it for Fashion Week) or my latest post.

Since my exact bag is sold out, here are a few more blue options:

MALONE SOULIERS

malone souliers lois opoku style lisforlois
I cannot wait to wear these shoes out this summer. On a late summer night out, as I sip some wine and eat olives with bae. I'll remember the music that plaid in the background and the laughs we shared, how cute he looked in his shirt and the dress I wore. We'd go for a walk looking where the night would carry us until my feet cannot carry me no more.
'How silly of me to think I could last all day in these heels', I'd think. Sure the were comfortable, but I wouldn't last all day in heels not even in my comfiest pair. He'd stop for me to take them off, his hand in one and the shoes in my other, as we'd wander off into the night carefree as ever.

KICKBOXING IN ODLO CERAMICOOL

170328_Odlo_Boat_Sessions_358
Hey guys,

I finally had the chance to do a kickboxing class! Kickboxing, pole dancing and indoor cycling have been high up on my list of things to do and try before I do and I'm so happy I got to cross two of my list. (The other thing I tried was cycling - but more on that in a separate post..)
Odlo invited me to try out 45 mins for Kickboxing in light of their launch of their latest collection which includes a new technology called Ceramicool, an airing system that cools your skin down to 1°C during physical activities, as the material which has a special yarn mixed with ceramic, helps radiate your own body heat off meaning at even high temperates when your body is working, you have a cooling effect.
Especially now that's getting warmer and summer is approaching a Ceramicool shirt comes in very handy for outdoor activities.
The Ceramicool collections includes 3 different types - Ceramicool Seamless (entirely made from the ceramic yarn), Ceramicool Pro (mix from ceramic yarn and intelligent mesh positioning) and Ceramicool (ceramicool technology only in sensitive areas of the body i.e. armpits, neck and back).

RUFFLED BELL SLEEVES

Hey Guys,

It's a wonderful Saturday and initially I wanted to go shoot some more content for the blog today. But let's just I say I had one of the most random Berlin nights last night and I'm still feeling the aftermath of an excessive party night. Haven't had so much fun in a while. Berlin's randomness that can make or break a night is kind part of its magic.
I'm off to the cinema to watch Beauty and the Beast. Can't wait to see Emma Watson bring Belle to live!

Go enjoy the sun, your day and have a wonderful weekend!

SPRING IN FAUX FUR

Fur schnürtop lois opoku lisforlois
Hey guys,

It's finally spring, the days are seemingly getting (not really) but occasionally the sun comes out to play in Berlin. Soon spring will be in full bloom and I'll be able to shed all those layer that kept me warm. I found this coat I bought maybe 3 or 4 years ago at Zara in my closet. I mnust admit I have a lot of clothes I buy during Sale season and end up at the back of my closet after of month of excessively wearing them. I've kind of fallen for this fur ball again, although it makes me look somewhat like a bird haha! The rest of the pieces I'm wearing are all sale finds, the strappy top is from last year Zara, the bag I got in January - also Zara. The pants I found at Bershka and I must admit I was surprised at the perfect fit. As you know my booty-to-hips ratio is not made for the European market aka "slim thick with your cute ass"-Problem. Only Levis introduced pants made for my shape - the Levis Curve ID (I'm a bold curve), but Levis is costly and the wash I have I don't wear that often.
These pants from Bershka fit like Curve IDs. My shoes were my biggest steal 12,99 Mango.. uh yes?!

Good night kids!

GRL PWR - PWR GRL

Hey guys,

Ok so right now I'm in a deep hate-love relationship with Instagram and it feels like it's getting worse every time I open the app. But one thing I will forever be grateful for on Instagram is that fact that there are so many great brands and creators and people and places and hotspots to discover. Instagram is like a global hub of hidden gems once you dig deeper than your shitty "explore page" spammed with dumbass (sexist/I'm being cheated on/wtf even is your message/ completely wrong ideals) "comedy" videos or naked botox ass face girls and unrealistic #bodygoals.
This is how I recently discovered Likalla and immediately fell in love with the brand created by Lisa and Katrin.
