L IS FOR LOIS X MEXX

Lois Opoku x mexx lisforlois bw outfit fashion
I've teamed up with Mexx to celebrate the opening of their brand new store in the new Mall of Berlin at Leipziger Platz. Having worked the best job evaaa at LP12 last weekend, I am already a huge fan of the new Mall. It's so big, it's easy to get lost in it for some hours of shopping. There is no store you won't find there.
As for Mexx, it's situated not far from the entrance, perfect. I had a look at their latest collection with their lovely team during the opening. I instantly fell in love with this blouse. Classic, white, and a very timeless cut - elegant yet super cute thanks to the dotted holes as the perfect little detail. It's the beginning of fall and fall beginning always makes me feel like bringing out my all leather pants. In a classic black and white look I combined my new Mexx blouse.

With autumn arriving and eventually winter commencing, it is time to think about jackets and coats. Although I don't want to go there yet with my thoughts (blame it on summer blues and the feel of being overly attached unready to say my goodbyes!) Mexx had some very dapper looking coats in store. I'm talking oversized boyfriend with a hint of biker style or ladylike oversized collared coats to keep you warm and stylish through the coming winter months.

Go visit them in the new Mall of Berlin. Their store looks great.

HIDDEN FOUNTAINS

Lois Opoku Summer Outfit Berlin lisforlois
Summer is definitely coming to an end in Berlin, although we enjoy the occasional hot days every now and then which were truly missed during the actual summer months and honestly it feels like August again. Something like September Summer?
I'm loving the backdrop of today's pictures. This huge ass fountain completely out of place. I have walked passed it. Several times. Often actually.
Anytime I'm on my way to my best Friends house after gym.

Sometimes you walk through the world, blind, completely shutting out your surroundings, and then you open your eyes and discover treasures. Treasures that have been there all along. Treasures you've seen ever so often before, but never took a minute to appreciate. And sometimes you happen to have you're camera along with you and you can capture those places, that moment.
It looks like I'm in Bali right? Oh Bali, I so desperately want to discover you.
This is my little Bali getaway right here in Berlin.
This is as close as I'll get to Bali this year.
I'm coming for you next year, Bali.
I've started saving.

GREEN SHAPES AND REFLECTIONS

Lois Opoku green dress Michael Kors bag lisforlois
These shots were taken right after my morning at the Uniqlo store for the Ines de La Fressange collections launch and my awesome afternoon with Levis. I'm totally loving the reflections in the huge windows, perfectly matching to one of my favorite dresses. This dress is a piece from the last ASOS Africa collection. I got it at the ASOS sample sale where every dress cost 5€! (So lucky I grabbed it before Hadnet Tesfai (truly beautiful German TV personality), because she was really digging that dress and couldn't stop complementing me on my find.) Btw I never really revealed what I end up buying at that Sample Sale, but this is one of those dresses. Trust me, Sample Sales are THE B.E.S.T.

2 NEW THINGS MICHAEL KORS

Michael Kors
Finally mine. The little designer bag of my dreams and a great quality rose gold watch. Check! Both had been on my wish list and my personal "Essentials for a timeless Wardrobe"-List. When Larissa sent me a pic of this bag via Whatsapp beginning of this year, I knew it was the one. The little not-so-ordinary designer bag I'd save up on for my timeless wardrobe. I nearly had all the money together with the 100€ gift voucher I got. But then I just lost the voucher. Moment of Horror! Owning this bag seemed so far away again. What a set back! But I was patient.
And then came along the collaboration with Designer Outlet Berlin and a Thank You gift card.
So after holding on very tightly to my new voucher and checking every 10 mins if it was still there, first thing I did after all work was done, was run to the MK Boutique and purchase my new baby. Turns out this baby was even reduced to 139€ from the initial 209€ (original price 339€).

#LIVEINLEVIS PROJECT LAUNCHES IN BERLIN WITH A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER AFTERNOON

Last Thursday with Levi's felt like a perfect end to summer. The sun was back out, it was the beginning of Berlin Festival and Levi's invited us to the Oberhafenkantine (huuuge yard with a cute little wooden house and a glass house) to celebrate the launch of Levi's latest project: #LiveInLevis. The campaign features so many different people - people with different backgrounds - artist, dancers, barbers, singers, social media managers, Alexandra from 4thandbleeker (<3) in an image trailer whose lives couldn't be more unalike. It follows them in their Levi's as they uncover their tales. The trailer itself is pretty inspiring. But that's not all, if you visit your local Levi's Store, you'll discover more #LiveInLevis stories from local characters. The Berlin Kudamm store got a makeover from none other than the dudes from Dandy Diary & Jessie from Journelles.com.

L IS FOR LOIS X DESIGNER OUTLET BERLIN: LETS ROCK'N'ROLL

_MG_3163a
The Designer Outlet Berlin is celebrating its birthday with a birthday week full of surprises and style (think special offers, live concerts and more!). And in all things style, they asked Özi from Fashion Monger, Dustin from Shiggers On Street, Anni from Bildhübsch Blog and me for our expertise and to interpret and come up with a modern Rock'n'Roll party outfit in a blogger challenge for their birthday party. This is the look I created. I chose a marble print shift dress from Mango which I combined with not one but two statement belts, because you know, it's rock'n'roll to go against norms, held together in around my hips. The total gem of this outfit is this stunner of a jacket by True Religion covered with black studs.
