I´m sure no one noticed but: I love coats! Seems like I have a little addiction here. What is it about coats that make them so special that you just feel like you have to be seen in public with them? For me, it´s pure sophistication. It can be an understatement and the other way round, it can be an eyecatcher on a rainy, gray winter day, depending on the colour.
My new favorite coat is from Carmakoma and stands for its flower power. I wished it had no pleather arms since that makes it much less of a spring/summer coat to me. I love leather jackets but more so when they´re pure.
I guess, I´m not the world´s biggest pattern mixing queen. I love it when other people do it but when I aspire to do it, I feel like I´m trying to dress for Halloween, if not going to a “Bad taste” party. You remember when they were on Vogue? In Berlin, mean people say, there always seems to be a Bad Taste party going on. I couldn´t care less. I´m in love with everything here, so the “Berliners” are just some little, cute and yet grumpy people. You just have to love them.
