Black Angel

Bonsoir mes chers,

I appear to be a phantom at midnight but all you see is an angel. You see purity, innocence and kindness within my unapproachability. When you look into my brown eyes it seems like you imagine me in the white dress whereas I prefer black.

I give you my romance and maybe one day I will lay down my weapons. But this winter you will show you myself twice as beautiful.

Light Down.


you have seen my smile, my purity and my innocence but once there comes the time when I switch down the lights and lay down the flowers and all that remains is the word hot. Hot as my red lipstick, deep the emotions as the black shadow that is revealed by the damped light. 

We are both aware of the game we play. With big emotions we make clear that the cold season approaching can't reach us on anything. I wanted to be the woman you once fell in love with but I realized that also she is developing. You are the light I am the shadow and together we will bring the most romantic fall/winter season you have ever seen.

Star-Style #5: Catherine Oxenberg

Good evening my beloved people,

Catherine Oxenberg... what comes to your mind when you hear that name? The "1980s Dynasty Queen", as she is called by Classic Woman's Club, the Princess of Yugoslavia or the wife of the excellent actor and producer Casper Van Dien? The readers of this blog are supposed to be more than familiar with Catherine Oxenberg as Amanda Carrington the "1980s Dynasty Queen" and one of my personal biggest (fashion) idols. Back then she was as old as I am today and today on September 22nd she is celebrating her 53rd birthday. In order to her big day I dedicate this time's Fall4Me "Star Style" post to her sending my best wishes. Personally I feel very honored to share my birthday month with her.

Talking in the base of fashion Catherine Oxenberg can be admired for many things: her convertibility even though she maintains in her personal classy and timeless style, her admirably high styled hair and with what souvereignity she wears her style. She saves her youthfulness but presents herself as a self-confident adult lady. That's what I admire, that's where I somehow recognize myself in her and that's where I want to go. Especially since usually no one is dressed like this today anymore. She manages to always look noble in her suitable for everyday-life outfits. This is what I found to my liking and I have been many times confirmed in my decision by (fashion) which I thank for the support since the age 18-21 is the time of self-finding who you are and who you want to be and Catherine Oxenberg was the one to help me with it and I want to thank her with all my heart for this.

With Catherine Oxenberg it has been love at the first sight already more than ten years ago. The love became even stronger when the "Dynasty" series have been showed again in German television. She made me like items from which I never imagined back then that they would become an essential part of closet such as the Marlene Dietrich pants instead of jeans or big stud earrings instead of long ones. She showed me that it does not matter what you wear but how you wear it. So for example the Marlene pants worn with glamorous high heels and beautiful blouses to emphasize your waist with beautiful big belts.

How wonderful that you were born otherwise we would have missed you very much! Happy birthday!

Stop, Harper! Now It's My Time To Speak.

Good evening my beloved readership,

thanks to technology and social media (such as Facebook, Twitter and co.) we have become real "infoholics" (neologism for information maniac). We are fed with all kinds of information at every second. It is something we can't get out of easily. This may be considered as blessing or curse depending on the arguments and point of view.
But this is not what I want to talk about today but an article from my most favorite international fashion and lifestyle magazine "Harper's Bazaar" which I stumbled at in my newsfeed.

Usually I enjoy the articles and the construction of the magazine. Therefore I like to buy it frequently and add it to my collection but this time I have to interrupt and take a stand on it in the name of nearly all fashion people, especially bloggers.

Before you read my article I suggest you to get familiar with the article I am going to refer to here.

Yes! I admit it, I can as well count myself to the people HB refered to in its article doubtlessly - maybe with one or the other exception. However as an exception I bring the mix of fashion and political science to the world of fashion so it is in my nature to bring the spice of argumentation to me whenever it may be needed. Today I felt the need but as a good student I know that politeness and respect towards the opponent maintain.

I will not refer to every single point since this might become too small-minded. Apart from that I would repeat myself at some points.

We should keep in mind that HB wrote this article in honour to the fashion month September and includes its team itself in the group of "fashion obsessed"people who "annoy" the others on the social networks such as Instagram. Our behavior can nearly be considered as "we post our life on Instagram" or rather "we are obsessed with ourselves". Even I have heard sentences like "her 'I love myself' fashion-blog''' or "do you have to take a picture of yourself all the time?!" lots of times. I have been considered as a show-off, I was left by people I considered as my friends and I was as well told that my mind wouldn't work further than fashion and I am sure I am not the only one with experiences like these.

To be honest I am a little bit disappointed by HB that it phrased its article about the habits of fashion friends with expressions like "annoying" or "obsessed". This way it seems like it would support the people I and many others made bad experiences with.

I think it is about time that people don't just nod cheerfully about HB's article saying "yes, exactly, that's it! Make it stop!" - and some others nod thinking "oh no, this is me" and feel bad about it - but understand that fashion people belong to the hardest working people in the world. They put their heart and their soul into their passion of fashion and are taking aim for their big dreams of meeting their hard-to-reach idols and be a model, journalist or photographer without being limited in their personaility and whole being or fearing that they can't reach their dream because they don't have the measures or qualities.

Fashion - during the times of economic crisis - has become an even harder competition. You either have to really stand out to be successful or know the right people. I can just motivate everyone to keep on no matter how hard and bad it may seem. Just be yourself because you are perfect and admirable the way you are.
A result of it is as well the tagging and hashtagging which is simply a way to pull attention to us and spread the word about us and eventually be featured.

To shortly refer to the photos of so called "mirror selfies", invitations or workplaces. It is for letting out followers take part at least a little bit in our life, our experiences and our joy of the moment. Why not spreading the positive energy? Selfies are actually a good way - especially for famous people - to show their naturalness and that they are people like you and me.

Despite all thanks to HB for this indeed interesting article. I allowed myself with this to complete it. If you write an article "in honor" to something you can't talk it bad the way you did in my opinion.

British Nostalgia

Hey, hey you, yes you, wake up...

Let's take the train and go to a place called beautiful. It is full of walks that make you feel lost for a moment but just like in every adventure there are signs that lead you the right direction. Every little seeming thing there hides a big treasure and you find yourself breath-taking, speechless, lost in memories...

Do you remember when we just walked around not caring what others might have thought of us? Do you remember when we led the way without even knowing where we are going? Do you remember when how we just laughed about everything and lived the way we wanted?

Now we want control and if we can't have it we put ourselves down. Now we live according to the strage eye and if we aren't good enough for this eye we feel bad. Now we live according to time and money and if we don't have it we limit ourselves.

When I drove back in the night looking into the horizon I smiled and realized, live and let life drive you like the train you are sitting in. Relax your mind and relax your heart and let yourself be embraced by your surrounding. And with every morning you opening your eyes you will collect the treasures you wished for, bit for bit.
