FASHION : carol – the stile inspiration movie of 2015

comments 11


in december, while we were still in berlin, david planned a whole day off for us ( that you might have already read about here ).

one of the things we did that day was to go to the cinema and watch carol. it’s probably the best film i saw all year, made by one of our favourite directors todd haynes, with cate blanchett and rooney mara in the leads. and it’s adapted from the novel of another favourite – patricia highsmith.

besides from being gorgeous, touching, sweet and inspirational in a movie making, photography, and editing kind of way – it also inspired me greatly from a style perspective. not that i want to look like either of the two leads, but more trying to create the feeling i got from the film in general.


from the clothing to the makeup, creating that both sexy and quite androgynous look at once. the sexiness of the strong 50s inspired makeup and using a bra as a top, paired with the boyishness of my short hair, and david’s oversized trousers cinched at the waist with a large belt. a good look if you ask me – hope you like it too !

this look makes me want to smoke cigarettes and drink champagne straight from the bottle, while sitting on the floor and listening to billie holiday. ok, so the cigarette won’t happen. but a glass of champagne and miss holiday might just be the thing, as soon as we’re back in berlin again about a week from now !

  1. Love the vibe of this outfit. Strong lips, sexy top and androgynous rest. Perfect combination :)

  2. Great look on you.
    Love the independence women “who dared to be different” showed in those older times.
    I can’t believe women nowadays, are
    still fighting for equality when I read about all these strong women of the past, but we’ve come pretty far.
    Cate Blanchette was dead-on in Aviator. You’ll probably love the styles in that movie if you haven’t seen it.

      couldn’t agree with you more !
      let’s keep working for a better tomorrow <3

  3. Don’t know if you’ll ever read this – I’m a bit late to the party to your channel and blog – but I’m really interested in your minimalistic lifestyle and I’m going on a video binge at the moment. I love your recipes and vegan lifestyle. I have been trying to clean out my head and my space and I’m wondering if you could ever do a post on all the makeup that you have (I put this question under ‘Beauty’ hoping you’d see it). For someone that is so chill, I’m just dying to know what and how you put it all together, how you store it, what you own and your whole philosophy of ‘less is more’ and ‘beauty’ — I’m sure it’s too cool for school. Thanks for reading and thanks for being such a great inspiration. :)

      oh thank you soooo much, this just made me smile big time :)
      i’ll keep that in mind for sure !
      lots of love xx

  4. Such a great look, I’m gonna have to watch that film!
    Also… what do you use in your hair? I have short hair but I can never get it to do anything other than what it wants! Haha
