Made in Berlin- Kaviar Gauche

In Germany, January and February are all about bridal fashion and wedding fairs. And since we are in the middle of this time of the year here is my contribution to this topic.

Usually the wedding dress comes at the end of a fashion show. Kaviar Gauche are able to come up with a whole show about wedding gowns.

The Berlin based designers from Kaviar Gauche, Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl, that are well known for their Lamella-bags have expanded their collection by some really gorgeous dresses for THE day in a woman’s life.

Wonderfull empire waist dresses, feather light, flowing silk chiffon creations combined with leather belts, rivets and chains give this collection an edgy style. And despite the fact that this brand is very popular with Germans and even some Hollywood actors their prices are still affordable.

A Husband’s Despair: The Next 3 Days

February 8, 2011

Hi you. Last Sunday I watched “The next 3 days”, the new thriller with Russell Crowe and Elisabeth Banks. Crowe plays John Brennan whose wife is wrongly imprisoned for murder. He develops a completely insane plan to get her out of prison.

This is actually the best thriller I have seen in months. It grabs your attention and makes you perch on the edge of the couch, tense with excitement.

Crowe’s acting is impressive. His portrayal of the irrationally determined husband is believable because he is not a superhero but someone whose desperate situation forces him to resort to desperate means.

Watch it!

Hey you! I already told you that I am taking dance classes with my boyfriend. Last Monday we learned our first tango moves.  And then I found this stunning piece from Gotan Project. Enjoy! 🙂


M. Ward – a well-kept secret

I would like to introduce you to a truly gifted musician and songwriter  –  M. Ward. You might know him from Monster of Folk or from the band She & Him (with Zooey Deschanel) however his solo work is amazing. A few days ago I listened to some of his tracks and was mesmerized by them. His music is sort of timeless; you don’t find it that often nowadays.

Growing up in Portland M. Ward released his first solo debut “Duet for Guitars” in 2001 followed by 6 other records. His last album  “Hold Time” was released in 2009. In 2006 he got together with Zoey Deschanel as the band She & Him. And then in 2009 he formed the band Monster of Folk  with Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes and My Morning Jacket star Jim James.

This guy is a real genius…always ready for surprises…can’t wait for more.

By the way M stands for Matthew.


Remember the Classics: Pink Floyd

Today I listened to Pink Floyd’s “Coming back to life” on my ipod and once again realized how beautiful and meditative its lyrics and melody are. Enjoy!

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun


Me, and you, and… someone else- “The Other Man”

January 4, 2011

by Charlie:

“They belong together, their whole life. They complement one another, and if one of them disappears, the other one will lose the right to exist.”  This could be a great metaphor for a perfect pair of shoes. But what if you transfer this to a relationship???

“The Other Man” tells a story about a woman who loves two men. But is that really possible?

And, does that make you happy or is it just double cheating???

Recently I found this wonderful and charming swedish girl. I really like her eccentric style, I guess that I also have a soft spot for the little swedish folk. I don’t know why, but they have some kind of a subtle energy that I think is refreshing and inspiring. Anyhow, hope you like her music.
