Disco Friday and a Big Thank You



I recently received an award from the fabulous bloggers of Style, Thrifting and Me, Knightley or Elton? and Vinda Sonata, plus the Magnifique Award Award from Anya of Couture Millinery and the Love Your Blog award from La Fleur de Lis. I’m absolutely thrilled and THANK YOU SO MUCH for thinking of me!

The awards come with the task to reveal 7 things about oneself. So here goes:

1. I’m the oldest of 4 siblings; 2 of which are twins.
2. The rest of my family finds my passion for fashion rather strange (except maybe my little sister who has written a book about the political impact of the jeans in the GDR and is therefore described as a 'fashion historian' by the Guardian).
3. I’m blessed with a husband who is a great cook and can make wonderful sushi.
4. My favourite means of transport is the bicycle (and perhaps the horse, but that’s more a romantic thought).
5. My all-time favourite book is 'Dune' by Frank Herbert, but I’m also a big fan of Lord of the Rings and everything Jane Austen and Agatha Christie.
6. I used to teach Ashtanga yoga, but all that’s left of my daily yoga regime is 10 minutes jumping around in the morning.
7. I prefer a humid, mild (typical English) day to a crisp, sunny cold one.

It’s always difficult to pinpoint other blogs, and from my active commenting you might know how much I enjoy reading and discovering new blogs. But here goes, I pass the awards on to:

1.
Drollgirl - No matter how grey the day, her blog always puts a smile on my face.
2.
Cindy Whitehead - Cindy is a sports stylist. How cool is that?!
3.
Dancing Branflakes - I’m a big fan of body control, so it’s no surprise I’ve fallen in love with this beautiful blog of a dancer in California.
4.
Caroline, No - Caroline writes a very informative and entertaining blog about everthing London.
5.
Johanna Urban - I absolutely adore Johanna’s pictures. She is a true and very gifted artist.
6.
Vintage Vixen - Shows us that you don’t need to spend heaps of money to be extremely stylish.
7.
Tweet - Clare is a super fashionable blogger and tweeter ( or is it twitterer?)

It’s the theatre for me tonight, but I also practised my dance moves, just in case… Wishing you all a lovely weekend. (Maybe you can do some dancing for me)
dress: label unknown (bought in Byron Bay Australia), trousers: c’n’c costume, shoes: cesare paciotti

Cafe Fashionista said...

Congratulations on the award darling! I absolutely adore the fact that bicycle is your favorite means of transportation - there's nothing so freeing as taking a bike ride, if you ask me!! :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

I think so, too, Erika. And the best thing is - you can wear high heels on a bicycle!

Cindy Whitehead said...

Congrats on the award and thank you for passing to me - I am honored! Loved reading about you. Makes me think I need to start riding my bike too! (-:

Couture Millinery Atelier. said...

This pictures are amazing! Congratulations on you Award and it was o interesting to read more facts about your life. :-)))
Sabine, thank you so very much for your great input on my Dior dilemma. I could never imagine how intimidating it would be to wear something like this.I will, of course, post once I will figure out what will work for me. But I have to say that your idea of pairing this coat with jeans is a jewel! I love it! Seems so chic and I love the fact that it will allow me to wear this coat during the day too. Thank you!:-)

pen.ny said...

How romantic the idea of running around by horse. Nice! Also super cool that your husband can make great sushi, another plus!

Angie Muresan said...

Congratulations to you! And to the recipients of your awards.

Have a wonderful night at the theater. For me it's dinner and a movie with my husband, who also is a wonderful cook. What is it about men and their spectacular skills in the kitchen?

You look beautiful and the photos are amazing!

Thank you thank you! And can I say that the fact that you're sister is a fashion historian is possibly the coolest thing ever. Also, I love Dune and crisp days just like you.

Nicole Jarecz said...

these photos are stunning!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Wulanasihsetyarini - I bought the dress in Australia, so I think it's well possible that the batik is from Indonesia.

Dancing Branflake - I wish, too!

Jen - Pride and Prejudice is beautiful and I find 'Emma' is the funniest.

Make Do Style - The book is called Jeans In The GDR: The Deeper Meaning Of A Slack.

cαro said...

i WISH i could dance. sadly i think if i ever tried, people would think i was having a seizure...

L.A. Daze said...

My favorite mode of transportation is also a horse! If only we still lived in those times...i'd be riding all the time. Second to that would be the bike.

Pratishtha Durga said...

Thanks for sharing these delightful details about yourself.

I am so impressed! You were a Yoga instructor...! Wow. No wonder you are in such great shape.

I love the pictures. So full of drama and movement.

WendyB said...

My husband is good at making reservations.

Cute photos, I love dancing. :D

You are lucky to have a husband who cooks...I adore my boyfriend, but he dosen't have any extravagant kitchen talents (although he's perfectly fine to help me out!).
