One of my favorite things: Cafe time. When I was 13 I started to go to cafes almost every single day. Me and my friends spent hours and hours in some of the cutest places in Berlin after school. And today it’s still like that. I just love sitting there, inside or outside doesn’t matter, drink loads of coffee or tea, listen to good music, watch people passing by and work. I especially love working in a cafe, because I don’t get distracted that easily and the whole atmosphere is really calming. It happened before that I totally lost track of time, the sun wandered from east to west and I spent a fortune on espresso and delicious cake. Sometimes I also bring a book, get comfortable with some pillows in a corner or I even bring my sketchbook/iPad and draw. I feel like I get really inspired and have the best creative ideas, when I am in one of my favorite cafes. Maybe because you’re surrounded by a lot of people with different vibes and mind sets. Some of my favorite cafes are: “An einem Sonntag im August”, “LUX” and “Weinerei”. I was wearing my Calvin Klein light silver watch a couple weeks back when I sat outside of the “Oberholz”, because I knew I couldn’t get lost in time, sadly. Do you share the same love for cafes?

For me Style has always been a tool to express myself as a human being. My style was never over to the top crazy, but let´s say compared to my friends I mostly looked a little different..

I started my Blog when I was 13 and that was around the time that I got more into fashion. What do I want to wear? What looks cool? What is myself? What do I feel comfortable in? And I started to get weird looks from people at school. Why? Because most people categorize other people, which in my opinion isn’t a good thing.

You have probably been following me for some time, so you are familiar with my style by now, maybe even like it. If I would show these pictures to other people I can image getting comments like: “Those sunglasses.. Are you Keanu Reves from Matirx?” or ” You wear underwear out on the streets?” or ” Are you goth now, because that is what your shoes look like.” Even in an open minded city like Berlin I still get weird looks. Why are people so judgmental and always have to categorize everything ?

In Cooperation with Esprit and their #ImEsprit Campaign, which they started last year, I wanna rise some awareness to think different. Think big. Think about yourself. Be open minded and accept other people as they are.

Visual Identity is one of the first places to start. I remember not being strong enough in school regarding weird comments I got from other students or even teachers. I probably wasn’t until last year and sometimes the world still makes me feel uncomfortable.

Times change and so do peoples mind sets. If we look back a hundred years, of corse we have come very far. But I just wish acceptance would come faster and of corse not only in fashion. We should all get rid of the image which society and the media  is still teaching us to be the right thing. x
