As it was unlikely I’d find the time to continue writing „a week in fashion“ regularly, I’ve decided to… rename it „a month in fashion (and other stuff)“. Which, yeah, I could’ve spent more time coming up with a better title. Instead I used the time to watch, read, listen, shop and generally fall in love with the following things (starting with the ones in the picture).
| If I’m going to wear sweatpants all the time, I might as well wear nice ones. These black wool ones are from Stefanel, have a great cut, are super soft and currently still in the Sale (also in grey and a light caramel colour).
| How much can you say about Women in Clothes? So much. Authors Leanne Shapton, Heidi Julavits and Sheila Heti examine our relationship with fashion through interviews, essays, pictorials and a whole load more. Mind-blowingly comprehensive and thoroughly entertaining.
| Got some fancy coasters from Bolia. Because it’s never too late to grow up and get fancy coasters.
| New year, new calendar. After being faithful to Moleskine for years I found a new love in the Leuchturm 1917 weekly calendar (which I find much better divided for the to-do-listing I like doing).
| One day, I will live like the heroine in a Truman Capote story and really need a set of cards that are engraved “regrets his/her behaviour” from the divine Mrs John L Strong fine stationery company.
| The hand soap with sweet orange, cedarwood and sage from Grown Alchemist smells so lovely that handwashing suddenly feels like a special beauty treatment.
| Not a new buy, but I’m so glad about my June Ainscough brush every winter, because it’s very gentle on brittle and dry hair.
| Perhaps my favourite beauty product for winter: the Drink Up Intensive overnight mask from Origins, which is like a giant smoothie for the skin (and a great recommendation from Okka).
| Crème Abricot nail cream from Dior. Can I admit that I bought it primarily because I loved the delicate jar it comes in? Good. It has also improved the state of my finger nails considerably.
| Lovely Daria from kid’s online shop Walking the Cat has found a permanent location in Berlin and opened her store on Mulackstraße 7. I recently got Arlo a pair of Tocoto Vintage pants there.
