At some point in our history, fashion stopped being an expression. At some point in our preferences, fashion became a selfish act. At some point in our habits, fashion became a media-inflicted addiction. At some point in our future, fashion should return.
And for that, we can get help! For all those who feel lost in trends, disoriented in translating catwalks, dizzy in sifting through stores offerings I say: there is hope! Fashion is still alive! Somewhere deep inside each of our hearts, true fashion is still alive! Today I give you John Galliano and Rolf Snoeren & Viktor Horsting! The Fall 2015 Haute Couture is upon us, let’s close our eyes and open our hearts to fashion!

Wimbledon is not only the oldest tennis tournament and the most prestigious but also the only Grand Slam on grass court! Quite the particularities for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club’s tennis tournament, wouldn’t you agree?
Even the general rules aren’t bent at Wimbledon: all the players must wear white. All white from head to toes! Although most of world’s tennis tournaments have long changed and forgotten the all-white-equipment, there’s not possible to get away without a warning on Wimbledon’s green grass court if your tennis getup is less than 90% white! But that rule doesn’t apply to the Ball Boys and Girls, though! For 9 years, the Wimbledon officials and Ball Boys and Girls are dressed by Ralph Lauren!

How do you feel about Fashion? And how is Fashion making you feel? Did you ever take the time to honestly look inside yourself and really find yourself amid all the trends and trending topics? All the must-haves and IT-products, all the must-do lists and don’t-miss stuff?
After all the years I’ve been a freelance fashion writer /journalist /blogger /reviewer /trendsetter /tastemaker /whatever, I took the proverbial time to eat, pray, love and find my fashion self. It took a while, it took many inner conflicts and questioning but I think I got it! Here’s my Fashion Freedom Declaration!

Remember the gorgeous Liya Kebede? Besides looking down on us, mortals, from skyscraper-sized ad billboards and caressing the catwalks with her feline demarche, she’s also involved in countless charities and militant activities besides being an actress and a mother! However, it’s not about all that today: it’s about your home and how you can ethically decorate it with Lemlem!
Lemlem – you may remember we talked about this brand a while back when highlighting the Born Free campaign – is proudly ‘Made in Ethiopia’, supporting the local weaving tradition and hard hand work of local weavers. Going beyond the clothes and accessories for both women and kids, Lemlem by Liya Kebede now extends into homewear (with a little help from Anthropologie).

Beyond past eras Royalty, at one moment, high heels have sneaked into our permanent wardrobe making our steps way less comfortable but way sexier! But today I want us all to focus on comfort!
I do own a handful of high heels shoes (and sandals) but when it comes to my day-to-day routine or simply when I want to feel comfortable, I only rely on flat shoes and sandals and as I’ve pointed out countless times before, Birkenstock is my label-of-choice for summer footwear (it might surprise you, but a lot of celebrities rely on Birkenstock for daily wear&tear). A couple of weeks ago, wanting to check out the novelties for this Summer, I discovered that Birkenstock added sneakers to their products roaster!

I’ve been wanting a studded pair of slip on sneakers ever since I heard about the latest trends! However, time has a weird way of sneaking up on us so I ended up forgetting about the slip on sneakers until…. Until my daughter received a pair of espadrilles for her birthday!
A metallic fabric upper, hemp soles, everything looked so suitable for a studded embellishment! I asked for her approval and help (which was more like ‘assistance’ than active participation, but call me a paranoid mama, I like my babies away from the hot glue gun! It’s all mine! Hehe!)

The tennis season is at its clay peak right now, with everyone who’s anyone in tennis gathering around Roland Garros. While the tennis matches can be spectacular and surprising (although up to this point, there weren’t any unexpected results in this year’s tournament’s first rounds), we can always keep an eye out for fashion on the court!
This edition of the French clay open brings something new to the game: fashionable ball boys & girls! All dressed up in Adidas Y3 back equipment with the emblematic three stripes in crisp white.

You know all those theories about individuals trying to break free from all the clichés of their upbringing? Have you ever tried the freeing technique from outside in? Like freeing from your wardrobe?
Feeling guilty has become so much part of our existence that we can actually spend more of our time feeling guilty than happy – and that includes our wardrobe as well! Guilty individuals are never really free. To express themselves, to really be themselves and to enjoy themselves! What if we’d change that? Let’s take one of the latest examples into consideration: Gisele Bundchen completely uncovering her statuesque self on the cover of Vogue Brasil May 2015 – scroll down to see her!
