GYPSY QUEEN DESICIONS.


New in *soon*
Gypsy Queen Tassel kimono
Gypsy Queen romper

I can't decide which one of these two beauties to buy first... The kimono by Spell Designs is definitely the one that I prefer more. It reminds me of a vintage kimono I didn't get my hands on while placing bids like a mad on ebay. And I do worry that next month, the kimono could be sold out...

The romper, on the other hand, is perfect for August and could be with me next week. Love the colors and it would be a perfect match with my L.A. vintage tooled back. Actually, the golden back detail is inspired by an old leather good the father of the two genius sisters behind Spell Designs used when he worked as a leather crafter.

Which one would you buy first? Like all of us, I have to act budget-wise and can't afford both on the same time. Saving for the US trip is my first priority right now.

SHARE-IN-STYLE: SWEET SUMMER SUN


Wearing
Lisa Maree bottoms
By Malene Birger tunic (2013)
Karma beach shorts
Dolce Vita sandals (2011)
Lovely Bird hat
The2Bandits necklace
Elizabeth&James sunies

loads of bindis ;)

Two days ago, we did a little road trip and went to a lake that has been layer out on the district of a former surface mining district. We enjoyed it so much as it really felt we were on vacation! I decided to spoil the hippie beach girl look and chose a white crochet bikini top and blue crochet bikini bottoms as well as loads of bindis! As the last pic proofs, they made a good job and stayed in place although I swam a lot!

Nothing is nicer to spend a day in the sun with the man you love! :))) Even after 12 years we are so happy together and I do have the feeling it will last another 12 years and even longer! We planned our trip to the U.S. next May and enjoyed home-made ice tea and organic chicken wraps.

Linking to the amazing Sacramento Amate and Share-In-Style!

THE REAL HIPPIE WOMAN.


Wearing
Adini vintage dress from the late 60s (via Etsy)
Urban Outfitters Fedora (from San Francisco 2012)
Wildfox Winona sunnies
Spell Designs Woodstock vest
The2Bandits jewelry

For the Robert Plant concert last night, I had to wear something special and something authentic hippie. What could be a better match than my Adini vintage dress I bought in January this year? Paired with my Spell waistcoat and a bid of outfit inspiration by my blogging buddy Mary Lou Cinnamon I was brave enough to pair both hippie classics - and top it with some bindis and a floppy hat!

This was nearly the first time I was nervous wearing a look like this as the city were the concert took place is very conservative. Well, the crowd was a mix of "we-are-cool-rockers-and-we-don't-show-any-emotion" and people who expected Robert to play a best of Led Zep songs. I actually love his new songs and I really appreciated the fact that he played half of the time Led Zeppelin classics like Going to California, Communication Breakdown, Blag Dog and Whole Lotta Love. OMG, how can't you be excited about that?!

Well, apart from Robert, there luckily were some old hippie guys in the audience. A girl called me a "real hippie woman with a fantastic outfit" so it was a wonderful evening!

FLEETWOOD RELOADED.



Really, the White Dunes Gypsy Hues lookbook by Spell Designs is perfection. Nothing to add. During the next months, I do have a strict plan when to buy which item. Well, the Fleetwood blouse was unplanned, but after I had to return something else that didn't work for me I decided to order this beauty. I love the lace Spell Designs used for the collection. Its soft and high quality. The fringed detail at the back is striking and really iconic. I think this blouse is truly special and also amazing for wearing it as a jacket with a shirt underneath and some slouchy printed pants.

After buying the Fleetwood maxi dress for my renewal of vows in Vegas next year, I really got hitched by this collection! And it encourages me quite a bid that Spell featured my pic wearing the Fleetwood maxi here on instagram ;)

I bet the blouse is equally beautiful and it helps me to bridge the time until I'm allowed to wear my Fleetwood maxi :)

RAINY DAY, DREAM AWAY.


Wearing
Lovely Bird San Miguel hat
Spell Designs Woodstock waistcoat
Spell Designs Desert Wanderer tee
Isabel Marant pants (2013)
Sam Edelman boots (2013)
The2Bandits jewelry
Antik Batik bag

This is a very relaxed look that I actually love to wear. The pants are super comfy and so is the tee by Spell Designs. I think the waistcoat and the hat really add that hippie vibe to the whole look. Nothing is more relaxing than put on some nice tunes (Slash!) and shoot some outfit pics during my lunch break.

I guess my tone-it-down-days are definitely over when it comes to style ;)))
