Fashion Fun

Berlin is buzzing with fashion week activities, but at 36C (that would be nearly 100F) and no a/c or even a fan in sight I'm finding it hard to think clothes. Even the knitted jumpsuits of Austrian designer Mangelware seem too warm right now (But they are pretty, don't you think?). Instead I'm hearing the call of the swimming pool...

I also had a chat with a marketing guy who told me that bloggers would sell out and just write for the money. 'Interesting,' I thought 'is that something only you 'properly trained' marketing people are allowed to do?'

Wishing you all a Happy Weekend! Love & Kisses!

I love the jumpsuit! If it was linen or cotton I would be inspired to find it right now.

Is it that hot? Cool! Let's switch the weather! ;)
I think that jumpsuit would be perfect for you in those color. For me a black one would be perfect.
Have fun!

It's way too hot in Germany at present. Nice to see you blogging from Berlin fashion week. You are such a jet set fashionista. I love the jumpsuit;-)

Sounds like our weather this week! And that was a very intersting comment by Mr. Marketing. I, for one, don't make money off my blog, but I don't see anything wrong with making a living out of something you enjoy doing! My pet peeve happens when a blogger loses their personal touch and just starts hawking products. I still think they are entitled to do whatever they want with their space, but I don't bother following after awhile when it changes direction like that.

36C wow. It is 31C here at the moment. Loving it. But yes wouyld love to hit the pool now. That would be great. Nice come back to the marketing guy. Tje jumpsit is great. I could easily see you in that. Are you going to all the shows or was this just in passing? Xxxx

Kazuko said...

oh yes, mangelware's knitted romper is really pretty indeed. also love the other outfit (as far as i can see. have to google mangelware for more images - hope they are not, sorry bad bad joke ahead: mangelware) ;) the underwater picture is just lovely and will go straight to my little collection of underwater pictures.

so finally you've made it. :) that's great and exciting! hope you have a super time! (oh jealousy...) didn't really understand that marketing guy though. but it sounds like he's afraid of losing his job to someone "less educated"?

anyways, looking forward to your next posts! enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! xo

It is about 100 here too! Swimming is sounding so good to me right about now. That picture has officially convinced me.
I hope you have a great weekend!

Sherin said...

Yup, I can definitely imagine wanting to hang by the pool in that weather.

I can't believe that's what the marketing guys said!! It's so untrue.

Jen said...

Love the jumpsuits, but definitely not suitable for such sky high temperatures! x
