Umami Berlin Opening Lois Opoku Louisa Rachor lisforlois
I was going through pictures on my external drive, my laptop and flickr account. I found so many unpublished pictures and stories, so many finished and barely started scraps of what were supposed to be blog posts for you. Stories, reminders, memories for me. A journal and account of my life for us.
So much has gone lost, stuck in internet limbo because I never finished typing my thoughts, or unready to hit the publish button.

Among those I found these pictures. I still remember that day vividly. It was the opening of Umami Berlin, tucked in side street behind SoHo House. (Dikjubi had successfully opened his little restaurant - Umami. It's really good!) The taste of his mini burgers and the conversations we had. How especially pretty I thought Louisa looked, the sound of Lisa's laugh in the middle of a conversation and the exact temperature of that day on my skin.

business look women Lois Opoku lisforlois
Hi guys,
So here is the full outfit post for the picture I posted on Friday on Instagram as part of the #GentlemanFriday campaign for the movie "The Intern" auf deutsch Man Lernt Nie Aus (Go watch the movie!!! It's so so good).
The first thing I associate with a Gentleman is a suit. Classic. Mostly a business man. He's educated, well mannered and knows how to treat a lady. He has values and principles. And class.
There's nothing more attractive than a man in a suit.

As part of the #GentlemanFriday I was asked to interpret a female look.
A lady. My mind instantly wandered to a woman in body con dress, not too short - that length that grazes the knees, simple yet elegant. Funny thing, again I associated being a lady with being a business lady, educated, strong, a level of sophistication and class. It's the way she carries herself, not just her groomed outer appearance but also her beautiful well kept soul. She is her own boss. She is strong on so many levels. But above all she is a do-er and she works endlessly. If it's from her office at work, at home keeping her family together or building her own business step by step online or elsewhere. She follows her dreams. She is the modern lady.
I've always looked up to that woman.

I've always looked up to that woman. She is my ultimate #goals. Although with the change of society and what's viewed as business, endless startups and more and more casual attire at the workspace, I still associate anything Rachel, Donna and Jessica wear on Suits(best freaking show ever! Lord please send me a Harvey Spectre!) with a classic business lady.
It has something to do with sophistication and being decent. With a level of class. With tradition.
There's nothing that beats a clean look. And a man in a suit!
..Except for a man in a suit with stubbles!
Oh that makes me weak. *sigh*

Have a wonderful evening!

Hey guys! Whats UP? Hello!

It's been forever since I've done Style Ideas, but I've kind of missed doing these collages with pieces I covet and wish to style up, mentally dressing up in clothes I don't necessarily own. Girl's gotta dream! They're planned as a regular part of my new blog concept I'm working on. You guys let me know what you think.
For the first Style Ideas revival I was inspired by the cold breeze and the falling leaves today. The whole look is centered around my personal IT bag: the MARCIE. I know Chloé has created the bag of the moment - there is no way getting around the Chloé Drew(LINK), especially in the bloggersphere. But can I be honest for a minute? Yes, I'm a huge fan of Chloé bags, Chloé and Céline to be exact. Drew is cute for a night out. But my favourite Chloé handbags have always been the Chloé Paraty and the Chloé Marcie medium totes as perfect everyday companions. They're part of a little obsession of mine I've kept well cultivated by regularily adding them to my shopping basket while browsing online, feeding directly into my obsession, ever since I started my blog.
The look is very heavy on nude as you can tell. But I wanted to kept it fun with loose leo print pants and an eggshell white cozy knit to keep it casual, functional, cozy yet flirty & fun. Tbh, I didn't really think about the look much, I just created as I went along, just like the way I get dressed. I was just really feeling those pants in combination with nude and that stunner of a bag.
Also, I think you can never go wrong with rose gold accessories and a little mush green to embrace fall. (Need to buy that shade asap!).

eileena lois youtube fall fashion beauty must haves
Hey guys!!

What's fall without a cozy knit, some overknee boots or bordeaux nails? It's been a while since I uploaded content to my Youtube Channel but I during Fashion Week I had the chance to be part of the #YoutubelovesFashion movement and met some really cool Youtubers, one of them being the lovely Eileena. We hit it of well and a collaboration was bound to happen sooner or later. If you have been stalking me on Snapchat(loisopoku) you already know it happened sooner.
So we filmed a two part fashion and beauty pieces/essentials/must-haves for the coming fall season and discussed our personal favourites. Enjoy some Sunday inspiration for fall. Have you guys updated your closets yet? What's your personal must-have for autumn? Let us know! Here on the blog in a comment below or on Youtube.
Also be sure to subscribe to my humble channel (it's free!) and make sure to visit Eileena's new blog and of course leave some love on both our videos and channels.

Reserved Brand fashion showroom
Stopped by the Reserved Showroom last week and picked out a few (too many!) pieces for my wardrobe. Can't thank Häberlein&Maurer enough for inviting me to choose some pieces. And I can't wait to style them up!
I already wore one of my hot pieces, the hot pink stunner, to Vogue Fashion Night Out but totally forgot to snap it. Boo me!
Anyway stay tuned for more looks :)

Monster x Chanel headphones Lois Opoku lisforlois
The first glimpse of the exclusive collaboration of Monster and Chanel was first seen on the runway in Paris of Chanel's Fall 14/15 collection in Karl Lagerfeld's famous Chanel Supermarket installation. After Swizz Beatz and King Karl posed for a picture on Instagram everyone was talking about them.. and the hideous 12 000$ Chanel shopping basket. By that time I had long had confirmation that Monster was indeed working on a Chanel heaphone and I couldn't wait to see the product. Then the hype about the headphones died down a little. One week ago at IFA was the first ever official press reveal of the luxury headphones taking Monster to a whole new level. And I was one of the only few to lucky enough to be present.

lois-floral-13 fashion week street style
Hey guys!

How have you been? How was your summer? I just got back from 3 weeks in Kenya. I apologize for the awful quietness here on the blog. Initially I auto-planned some posts for you but it all got lost in the hectic of getting ready for Kenya.
Anyway I can't wait to share my travel pictures from Kenya with you! But first I want to complete my fashion week diaries and show you my last outfit. Also, I'll still be posting some material from Fashion Week throughout the next weeks, well because I can. Don't be confused.

I held day 4 at fashion week super low key, I was in an awful lot of pain but I dragged myself to two shows because I had backstage appointments too, opportunities I really didn't miss out on. My energy however was not enough for the much sought after Marina H. show (which blew minds btw!) or her closing party at night, even after coming back to rest at home. Sometimes when your body says no, you gotta respect that.
Nevertheless I never forgot to wear my smile as my prettiest accessory.
