Stylight Fashion Blogger Awards Berlin Fashion Week lisforlois Stylight Fashion Blogger Awards Berlin Fashion Week lisforlois
The international Stylight Fashion Blogger Awards were the perfect way to kick off Fashion Week. With all the talk and hate going on surrounding Fashion Week and whether a blogger's presence is ligimate and all, I really appreciated the blogger power going on on the first night of Fashion Week. Chiara Ferragni hosted the event together with Raul Richter (yes that's the guy from GZSZ) and one by one the winners received their awards but not until Mavi showed their new collection and there was a live performance by Andreas Wijk - blogger turned superstar (he's signed to Red One?! Hello?? That's the guy that made Lady Gaga famous!), who btw has an amazing voice! Still got "Alive aaaaliveeeee, I live for the moment" stuck to my head today which is the chorus to his new song.

Been browsing though online shops and kinda got hung up on inlovewithfashion. It's one of the very few online shops I've actually bought something from (Zara and ASOS being the other). I own exactly two pieces, my high low maxi skirt I'll probably wearing a lot more during summer again and this gorgeous maxi cut out dress I wore when I met my future husband Elyas M'Barek to the Musikexpress Style Awards. Inlovewithfashion like every existing shop else is having a major sale and you can use the code LFA30 for 30%. Here's what I'm currently drooling over:

My first day of this season's Fashion Week started with the ZEITmagazin conference from which I quickly rushed to Nokia's workshop with took place at the Stue Hotel (totally dreamy!). Reason for the workshop was the introduction of the new Nokia Lumia 1020 that has a 41 mega pixel camera and full HD video funktion. With a handful of bloggers all equipped with the Nokia Lumia 1020 we were ready to begin. Finally met Lu from Lu Zieht An (who btw is even more beautiful in reality) and Hai-Yen from Gisela is Back. Yay! The girls are sugar and super fun! The idea of the workshop was pretty cool. Nokia invited fashion designer Marcel Ostertag and Jila&Jale, you may know from Fashion Hero that aired on Pro7 not to long ago, to present some of their upcoming looks and designs. In a sort of private runway we sat there and snapped away, getting to try the camera out right away.

Hey guys,

I'm back. Almost. Well I'm still pretty sick suffering from the aftermath of Fashion Week in winter. How is it that the Scandinavians manage to maintain perfectly styled look, while being totally effortless I must add, during times where the thermometer drops below the 0°C mark? I was fucking freezing. And every day of last week coming home I was on the verge of going down with a flue. And I kept jeopardizing my successful quick recovering immune system by leaving the house the exact same manner the following day. It was almost like layering plus my double layer of 100den tights (currently 1€ at H&M! Go get some!) didn't matter.
Well my body said bye and I'm still down with an awful cold.

Zookie the Next level streetstyle berlin lisforlois
Hey Guys,

I'm back from a more or less successful shopping trip. Got some stuff for Fashion Week. Anyway I wanted to show you my outfit with my new bag that I won from Zookie. It's from their new "The Next Level" Collection. Still got to show you the pics from the launch! So happy I won. Love the duffel bag, because it's perfect size and real suede. My big fat dslr camera fits along with my big purse and keys and lipstick and sunglasses and and and.. all at once! Also how perfect are my earrings? Love love love those since the day they arrived. Can't believe I haven't shown you any earlier..


Designer For Tomorrow Award DFT Media Morning Berlin Fashion Week lisforlois
The first thing that probably comes to your mind when hearing the word Fashion Week is a.) Models strutting the catwalk in the latest collection of huge designers with socialites and stars sitting front row dying for the first look to come out and saddened when the lights go off as the last look descends the runway b.) Streetstyle photogs hoarding infront of the tent waiting for Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss to pose for their cameras c.) Anna Wintour. Oh and let's not forget d) Parties, goodie bags and more parties.

Note: This however does not apply to Berlin Fashion Week. We got ex Dschungel Camp contestants and DSDS stars sitting Frontrow. And our biggest designers are bailing on Berlin Fashion Week. (Where is Hugo Boss? Where is Michalsky?) Oh well..

G-Star Raw Lois Opoku Bread&Butter Berlin Fashion Week July 2013 lisforlois
At first I thought I wasn't cool enough anymore and G-Star was trying to channel their inner most "You can't sit with us (anymore)"-attitude. But I never really believed this was the case because G-Star and me we go waaay back. Hello?! Rollin' togethaaa like since July 2011 yabish! See how I say G-Star instead of G-Star Raw? It's like you saying Kanye West but I can say Kanye. Or like you say Mrs. Jackson but I say Shaniqua. We're so cool we use first names.
Plus the G-Star shows + event and party have been my personal highlight since loosing my V-Card to Fashion Week and it's my seasonal meeting spot with my dutch babe Chloe Sterk.

I really thought this season was going to be very relaxed. Maybe a hand full of shows and an event here or there. I received some big invites very early and then it was all very dragging until the last couple of days. Drafting my plan today made me release my schedule is pretty full. And I have to rely on on-point-on-time shuttle service between a few of them. Ugh..
Of course I'm confronted with the usual "no clothes to wear" fiasco so I'm starting to go through my closet tonight and arrange my room. Luckily I still have the Forever21 gift I card I got for X-Mas. So I'll check if I can find some pieces there..

Hopefully I'll be grabbing some lunch or dinner with Anna and Valerie, finally meeting Larissa, a reunion with Fiorella who I met at the Stylight Shooting, have my seasonal reunion with my babe Chloe who is from Amsterdam and of course finally meeting Chiara, Kenza and some of my favourite Bloggers in person. I'm really looking forward to getting to know new faces.

What I'm looking forward to the most is the Bread&Butter. Get a real bite of it all and more than just the taste I get when running through the entire compound just to make it to G-Star Shows on time.

Gotta admit, I'm not exactly feeling Fashion Week right now. There's little excitement, but I know for sure this will all change as Monday breaks dawn. Probably because I'm a little stressed and my safeguard mechanism is to chill like nothing is happening and become completely unfazed.
I'm waiting for Monday. Let the fashion week magic, the frenzy, the madness sweep me of my feet..

Giveaway winners as announced on Facebook earlier:
Julia E., Asya C. and Sarah G.

fur coats and disco pants Lois Opoku lisforlois
First outfit post of 2013! Sorry for not much happening here in the first week of the new year, but how have you been holding up? Made any new years resolutions? I'm working hard on my new blog, the new L is for Lois and I can't wait for it to go live. I'm just really sick of my ugly ass layout that I pieced together upon opening this blog. I really need some changes. In my life, my blog and the future.

I should really wear my disco pants more often. For me it was more of my going out /going clubbing fancy pants, but I think it works perfectly fine during the day. This winter so far has been all about my Zara pimp coat, even if it makes me look like a little puff ball.
About turtlenecks, I hated those to the moon and back because I always felt like they would strangle me and of course my mom would force me into those every winter during my child hood. This one I'm wearing is actually one of my favorite jumpers this winter. I bought it myself from H&M Trend last year and I kind of think turtlenecks are super chic. Funny how you hate one thing and then a few months later it can become your most favorite thing. What have you hated, then suddenly loved?


Finally some words from me in the new year: Happy new years guys!!

Hope you all had a great night and celebrated the arrival of 2013 with a blast or were in the company of people you love. I went homeparty hopping and let's just say New Years Eve doesn't always turn out as planned ;) Nonetheless I had a fun night...
I'm wearing my new Beyonce x H&M dress that my friend Ina gave to me as a present.
I didn't actually spend New Years Eve in high heels, I had flats on :D

Dress I Kleid: Beyonce x H&M
Shoes I Schuhe: New Look
