BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 2 - THE PUFFER JACKET ON BOMBER

Lois-opoku-Puffer-jacket-fashion-week
Hey Guys,

Puff jackets seem to everywhere ever since the red jacket from Balenciaga emerged on their runway and ad campaign - Balenciaga basically declared them the IT fashion statement piece of the season. I too have fallen for the trend even though Grace kept stopping me from buying them - literally. She made me hand the Zara one I spotted back. (Tipp: Zara is always quick to copy fashion trends, styles and designer It pieces. If you can't afford the real deal, take the copy. After all they say "Fake it til you make." -  Although personally I'm not a big advocate for copycats.) Thank god for Grace, because a little later I found the perfect one at Bershka for 16€!

THOUGHTS ON INFLUENCER AND THE BLOGGERSPHERE - BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 1

Lois opoku style berlin fashion week
Hey guys!

How has your week been so far? I'm still procession what's been going on in the bloggersphere right now. Every season after Fashion Week its the same old story, a bunch of "Why I hate Fashion Week"- post surface right along with "Why I hate people that write about why they hate Fashion Week" counterparts. While there may be some good arguments on both sides it gets boring. It's the same old shit. I was ready to brace myself for the wave of those again, not bothering to take a stand on my own, because what I'll say has been said numerous times in rephrases.

THE LEO FUR COAT AND PEARL JEANS

Hey guys!

While you are reading this I'm going through my pictures from Fashion Week. January is going by in a rush! Right after Christmas I made huge hauls from Bershka and Topshop (got so many pieces for 10€) which I may or may not show you on my Youtube channel, depending on how I manage with time. The pants I got from Pull&Bear during the Cyber Monday/Black Friday sales, which I think I also linked in my Black Friday/Cyber Weekend sales guide, may be my fav new jeans. They are mom fit, which usually does not complement my figure at all, but I thought looked so cute that I ordered them anyway. This coat was a purchase just before Christmas and it's been keeping me warm since! I think a leopard print fur coat can be such a statement piece to own in your closet. It upgrades any casual look! Imagine that coat with black skinny jeans, similar boots, black pullover and a beanie. How cute is that for winter?

CLASSY IN GUCCI DIONYSUS AND CAMEL

Gucci Dionysus Lois Opoku lisforlois
First Look of 2017,

And I finally get to style the iconic Gucci Dionysus and for a minute feel its realm of luxury me on. It's not mine though, I stole it from my friend Janine. Just like Carina (sucks she stopped blogging), Janine is a girl from my childhood that I've found again through blogging. We used to attend the same elementary school. Go check out her blog!
Everywhere you look, every blog you click on, you'll see the It Bag of the season, the Gucci Dionysus, there is no way around it. I too have fallen for the hype around this bag. Gucci has never been so in like right now, and never have fashion lovers been so proud to wear the double G plastered across their clothes and accessories. Admittedly just 12 months ago I associated the vintage double G with "Kanacks" (=fake tan, fake gucci and gelled back hair boys).
But Gucci is on the comeback and it's good.
Better than ever.

New Year, New beginnings..

I hope you've all had a good start into the new year and Christmas with your family was good! I hope you wore your sparkly dresses and celebrated the arrival of a new year, a new chapter with a bang! I tried to go on a social media detox, but it didn't quite go as planned. I did retreat and posted as good as nothing on my social platforms, but at night when I couldn't sleep I would scroll through Instagram, which really wasn't the point of my detox at all. I did however take some time to recharge and shift my focus. What do I want in life? Where should my blog go?
I'm itching to create, grow and evolve.

I've come up with a few goals I've set for my blog this year. Here they are:
