a week in fashion #87

By Marlene | Published: 31. March 2013

*I went to Konk this week to take pictures of the store and its lovely owner Edda, which I’ll show you next week. Here’s a little preview from the changing room. In my parallel reality I have a dressing room with a chair like this in it.

*Can I ask you for a big favour? I’ve had to set up a new facebook page for the blog and it would be great, if you could take five seconds to go to the page and like it. That way you won’t be missing out on updates and new posts when I shut down the old facebook page. I’d really appreciate your support on this. Thank you!

*I’ve stopped counting how many times someone forwarded me a link to both the When You Live In Berlin and the When You Really Live In Berlin Tumblr this week. And now I’m sharing them with you, because they made me weep with laughter. I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of them, whether you live in Berlin or not. I dare you not to be instantly in a better mood when you see this.

*Another internet sensation: the What Ali Wore fashion blog. Photographer Zoe Spawton deserves all the praise and attention she’s gotten for showcasing 83-year-old Ali’s wardrobe with its over 100 suits. It’s for discoveries like this that I love the internet.

*And speaking of stylish men, I wouldn’t mind owning the outfit this guy on The Sartorialist is wearing. I get just as much inspiration from men’s wardrobes as I do from women’s and he delivers style with enviable ease. Simple perfection.

*Mr. Porter’s The Journal is such a cleverly done online magazine. Personal highlight: “The Way I Cook” series. This week features Mimi Thorisson’s recipe for calvados apple tart. After I wrote down the recipe, I spent half an hour on her blog Manger. Do you know it? Can you believe her life? I suddenly want to move to a farm in France.

*You can’t improve much on t-shirts and jeans from All Saints and the rest of their collection is getting better each season. I’m loving the spring/summer lookbook.

*I have a new style crush and her name is Leslie Fremar.

*I’m obviously biased, but with a name like that how could I not be a fan of the new København scarf from Petersen?

Have a good week!

    Hallo Marlene, ich heiße Manuela und bin begeisterte stille Mitleserin deines Blogs, auf den ich über Slomo gestoßen bin. Ich liebe deine Mode und deinen Stil und morgen fahre ich mit meinem Mann nach Kopenhagen! Kannst du mir dein Lieblingscafé (oder mehrere) verraten, sowie ein paar tolle Läden? Das wäre super! Gerne per E-mail. Ganz liebe Grüße und mach weiter so, ich liebe deinen Blog!

      Liebe Manuela, wie wunderbar, ich bin ganz gerührt und dank Dir für die lieben Worte. Und ich bin ein wenig neidisch, dass Du morgen nach Kopenhagen fährst. Wohin dort? Wo anfangen! Ich schreib’s Dir gleich in einer Mail… Alles Liebe, Marlene
