Phsychadelic and pop art prints on jumpers have firmly asserted their dominance in my wadrobe. My love for People Under the Stairs, Jurassic 5 and the one and only Tribe has manifested itself in my footwear d'jour and as of late. The existence of suit trousers, tailored jackets, slinky blouses and brogues has completely been forgotten, which has resulted in about 70% of my wardrobe's contents suffering from serious neglect. Backpacks have been replacing purses, sneakers brogues and boots and my demeanor regressing to my high-school years of basketball and softball. 

I am most certainly not holding myself responsible for this bout of hip hip attire that has befallen me, but I am already beginning to hear the onset of alarm bells ringing in the far-off distance, reminding me that my tailored pieces do in fact still exist and that my jerseys and jumpers might need the occasional rest. As stated in my last post, my Bettys are starting to look like they are suffering from insomnia. They haven't seen a day's rest in weeks. Until the point of excess has been reached, which I feel is imminent, I will continue gorging on all things jersey, perforated, sports-inspired while happily bobbing my head to Skee-Lo - "I Wish".

I am wearing an MSGM x Toilet Paper jumper, Current/Elliot jeans (similar here), Isabel Marant trainers, an MCM x Craig & Karl wallet and a Celine bag.

Sky above me. Earth below me. Fire within me.

Sunsets always trigger a drifting off into a mental state of Narnia in addition to a view like this, transporting me into some kind of über-awesome parallel universe where my sense of vertigo seems to disappear. 

About this jacket.

Glkhgfghjkwetdsxcafg!

It's hard to burst out with something conceivable in either German or English when you are holding a personal iconic piece in you hand. Clothes can in fact really change your life. This jacket with its snow white, wing-like construction did.

My apocalyptic theme seems to be continuing subconsciously thanks to these brothel creepers gracing my feet, given a sweeter edge thanks to the signature House of Hackney animal print and white crepe rubber sole. This vintage blouse, which remains a firm favourite five years onwards, rounded this off into something I can only say may be my favourite outfit in a while. I have a weakness for blue hues.

Boston was so damn perfect. I just arrived back in Berlin after a long bus ride back to NYC followed by a very interesting cab experience to the airport. I'm still gutted I didn't manage to very quickly squeeze in that final meal of pig trotters and lotus root in China Town. Next time. Being greeted with blossoms and amazing weather makes coming home feel almost like an extended holiday.

I found this ghetto Hermes style bomber in the vintage store Artifaktori I spoke about in my last post. I combined it with the latest addition to my frightening collection of sports jerseys that I found in Bodega, the most insane shop I have ever been to. Imagine entering a small, run-down covenient store with a giant Snapple vending machine, which in reality is an electric door leading to the store itself. Bodega specialises in street-wear and special collaborations such as Nike x Missoni. Thanks America for an amazing time. I'll be seeing you soon.

Treasure Hunting in Boston

I've completely fallen head over heels for Boston. The city is incredibly beautiful, very laid back and surprisingly quirky. I've done a lot of thrifting and vintage shopping since I've been here and managed to find some incredible pieces such as this Western shirt and the perfectly worn-in leather jacket you see above. While browsing the vintage store Artifaktori's racks, I met the store's manager Amanda and I couldn't leave before snapping a photo of her and her amazing style. She does vintage tours throughout Boston, writes and photographs for her blog redbirdvintage, likes to hangout with her boyfriend and cats and is on a total other level of coolness. Thank you Amanda for all your insider tips! I will most certainly return to Berlin bankrupt....and very happy.

Conversation Starter

The most conversation-starter-friendly cap known to man and the perfect item to run around New York City with. No need to talk, just let your clothes do that for you. I'm now in Boston until Saturday visiting my sister and will be eating buttermilk pancakes in around 5 minutes. I'll leave you with my last impressions of the big bad apple, fully in bloom.

I am wearing a customised vintage Wrangler denim jacket, a Tribe Called Quest jumper, Current/Elliot jeans, Chloé boots, a Givenchy bag and a cap from the Hat Shop in Soho.
