Esprit Mittsommer event Lois Opoku lisforlois Esprit Mittsommer event lisforlois
Just a few days ago Nisi took me along to as her friend of choice to celebrate mittsommer with Esprit. Together we spent a beautiful afternoon in this really cute dreamy location somewhere in a backyard of Berlin with flower crowns and mittsommer inspired cocktails and a live performance session from beautiful Anna F, whom I've fallen in love with since the Diesel Loverdose launch during Fashion Week last summer. Anna's performance made the afternoon perfect.
Meanwhile, Esprit hung out two racks full of their current summer collection and we got to take home all our favourite pieces. Between elegant black maxi dresses with a leg slit, oversized jackets, maxi jumpsuits in cute floral prints, aztec prints, two-pieces that reminded of the Sahara desert or Moroccan vibe and white hippie like dresses that really evoked the Mittsommer Spirit, almost everything was too big for me, but I managed to snag a really cute effortless chic vibe striped blouse and a simple blue acid wash T-shirt that has the most amazing feel on my skin.

Last weekend was the Karneval Der Kulturen in Berlin.
It was by far the hottest day of the year, way too hot to be spending it outside actually. But no one cared, because when it's Karneval der Kulturen in Berlin, there is no other place to be than at the march on Sunday. I wanted to start my day of looking at some of the wagons pass by Südstern with Tissi and Gina, then meet up with my friends but I bumped into my babe Mehtap and a few streets down Carina instead, saw Aminata from Germany's Next Topmodel and lost Nisi in the crowd of the YAM wagon, when it all went to fast. I only had my iPhone camera with me because it was either two bottles of iced water or my DSLR camera in my bag and surviving KDK seemed more important than HQ pictures. I gotta admit though that my iPhone diary has a more personal touch to it. Turns out it wasn't such a bad thing I wasn't out without my camera.

Nike House of Phenomenal The Last Game Berlin lisforlois Lois Opoku

The Nike House of Phenomenal was a paradise for all boys passionate about football (only Americans can call this game soccer, only Americans..) and men who deep down inside still stayed boys at heart clinging onto their dreams and love for this game, fan girls and aspiring WAGs (<- me).
Sadly it came to an end last night after two weeks of football games and special events, such as the Abdi and Celo concert or EasyDoesIt and finding the winning team all being open to public and football fans, but not before premiering Nike's new short movie The Last Game with a special closing event.

Lois Opoku Pepe Jeans Blogger Event look 2 lisforlois
Hey Guys,

I've been thinking about visiting Fashion Week abroad. It's time for me to see more than Berlin Fashion Week and Fashionchick is giving away this huge opportunity with the #FCfindyourlook competition. With the first Save The Dates popping up in my inbox I'm left with a is it already Fashion Week yet?! feeling and the desire to explore more than just Berlin.
Of course London, Paris and New York have been a huge dream for me and crazy enough I have received invitations to London and Paris before. But I never went and I've never attended for reasons like buying a plane ticket and the expenses of staying. Another city that's always been of interest for me has been Stockholm and Amsterdam Fashion Week.
With this huge opportunity from Fashion Chic, an all paid expense trip including tickets to shows and meetings with other bloggers and fittings, it seems like a dream so close to come true. Hopefully I'll win! I cant wait to blog from Amsterdam and share my adventures with you. Keeping my fingers crossed! Will you vote for me?

Designer Outlet Berlin Michael Kors lisforlois
Last week I got my girls Desi and Nisi to join the mini road trip for a shopping spree at the Designer Outlet Berlin with some really awesome shopping companions.
We were all hot for the new Michael Kors Store at the outlet, which btw is 2x the size of the store at Rosenthaler Straße, and holds lots of treasures from watches, to clutches, sunglasses and so many amazing bags. I immediately fell in love with the little red Michael Kors bowling bag I have been eyeing for a little while. But I didn't get it, because although a great deal at the Designer Outlet Berlin (309€ to 209€) I wasn't sure if I wanted to invest in it yet. I'm going back to get it! Can't stop thinking about it. And honestly I only got my red Mango bag because it reminded me of it.
Instead a bought this really cute Stella McCartney x Adidas collection sports top which was reduced to 15€.

Lois Opoku Pepe Jeans London lisforlois
This is one of the looks I created during the Pepe Jeans Event. I immediately fell in love with this two piece set with the graphic print made of old school fotos and what looked like newspaper excerpts I their really gorgeous showroom amongst all the other pieces we got to discover. The lemon colored leather jacket (colorful leather jackets are my Must Haves for this summer!) was a stunner and I loved pairing it with the two piece. There's a second look I created which I'll show you soon. Hopefully the weather is going to be warm again soon. (hello summer?! where art thou?) And then it's finally no tights, colorful leather jackets and cute little two piece sets weather!
