Finally a new post … OMG why does it always take me such a long time to prepare a proper post? Anyway here we go. We are currently in Paris and lucky enough to enjoy some late summer evenings.

Fendi bag bugs 2015 – seemed to be one of the hottest themes in the streets during fashion month just a few weeks ago! However, Financial Times fashion editor Jo Ellison called them “… an accessories line of kitsch ephemera that has gained a cult following among street-savvy-girly types “.
Isn’t it tolerable to wear something “cute” as a grown up? Does wearing such a bag bug scream please don’t take me serious I am a teenager in a woman’s body?
Oh how much I love these little witty creatures! Did you know that its already 2 years ago that Karl Lagerfeld created these cute monster fur balls called Fendi Bag Bugs for the first time? I liked them immediately. They reminded me of my childhood when I loved to pick a plush toy charm from Nici, a German brand that is very popular for doing a lot of incredibly cute plush toys, to attach it to my school backpack as a lucky charm.

OK, the baseball jacket/ MA-1bomber jacket/ blouson style jacket is not a new invention. Initially is was invented back in the 50ies for the air force pilots and found its way into the rave culture during the late 80ies and 90ies. Besides that it is a symbol of American Rock’n Roll, think Grease. For summer 2014 it is seen frequently in the collection. A trend that seems to continue into fall too.
