too many pretty things for one blogpost! at least for me.
i knew this dress and these shoes were meant to be.
i dreamt about this dress (do you dream about certain pieces of clothing too?) and started hunting off ebay. it´s a size 12 and a bit too big but who cares?
my hands felt numb after taking these pics, but OH SO WORTH IT!

can somebody tell me where i can buy litas in US 7 that would ship to germany?
i mean serious business when i say i want them in all possible colors!
i hope and pray and wish that solestruck would restock them!

loving the snow! everything feels so christmas-y! :)

Multi Glitter.

Jeffrey Campbell Lita in Multi Glitter via Solestruck (OMG, i love you to bits!)

It´s 2 am and i just have to post these lovelies! I CAN´T SIMPLY WAIT.
i know you´re sick of the litas because it´s everywhere yaddi yadda.
but i guess you just can´t have enough from something that is THAT good, right?
believe the rumors. it is easy to walk in and party all night.
and i am a hyprocite if i´d say i didn´t like the crazy compliments and stares i got today!
i am so getting them in other colors once i catch them in my size.

i think the last shoe devoted post on this blog was my Ashish for Topshop wedges!
it was about time those babies get some serious competition!
thanks bryce for this! you just made my Christmas perfect!

PS: the winner of the 5preview giveaway is Bohemian, i have sent an email your way!
i made a short clip of me putting all your names in this random name selector (FRUIT MACHINE via but vimeo doesn´t support the video file from le boyf´s super mega high techy HD camera. so yeah, once i figure that one out, it´s already new year. :(

the dj got us falling in love again.

this morning was complete mayhem in my house!
to those who follow me on twitter, you know what i am talking about.
of all the designer collaborations, H&M ♥ Lanvin is my favorite, YET.
past years, i always waited until the stuff gets reduced half price and then i buy.
but this time, i was very eager to get my hands on some pieces.
what i bought, you can see HERE.

but all´s well that ends well.
i hope you got everything you were rooting for!


{ Modern } Relief

i am very proud to announce a little project that myself and my friends have been working on... even in times of loss ( for my family anyways ) it brings a deep sense of joy, to help others. i never want to forget how each one of us can make a difference in this world and in someone else’s life. to my American friends... Happy Thanksgiving! ;)

"To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world"

{ Modern } Relief is a simple concept. We are Modern Quilters uniting through the holiday season by bringing the warmth of our quilts and the warmth of your hearts together for others in need. This season, 2010, we will be supporting World Vision. We hope YOU will join us in taking a stand against hunger by participating in our fundraising raffle. Please let me introduce to you World Vision.

World Vision is leading the effort to end hunger.

In the next seven seconds, another hungry child will die.

World Vision is on the front lines of the fight against hunger. Today — and every day — we’ll distribute nearly 600 metric tons of emergency food aid, nourishing the hungry. We’ll give local farmers the seeds, tools, and training they need to grow their own food and feed their own communities. And we will plead the cause of the hungry in halls of power all over the world.

Please join us in creating a world without hunger — a world in which no child dies for want of nutritious food. This site offers in-depth information on hunger, its causes, and how it can be stopped. You can learn more about key hunger-related issues and share what you discover with friends and family. Use this link to begin your journey.

Please meet the members of this season’s event and view their donations that they have generously provided to this fundraiser raffle.
