So the moon took control of my eyes and my soul, now I'm smiling cause I'm dancing with the witches in the moonlight, watch me dancing with the witches in the moonlight. When I was young I didn't know the summer days seemed 25 years long ...


Hi lovelies!

I'm literally smiling as I am typing this which is because I crazily love creating content on this blog but manage to post far too less - so posting something new always makes me extremely happy.
As crazy as it may sound, ever since I've graduated, I have even less time than before! I've been so busy - however, for diversion, I've been doing things I love.
I intended to fill these weeks before work with all the things - and only those - making me happy. So I am visiting fleamarkets, theatres, taking tons of analog pictures, doing art, spending time with my friends and my boyfriend, travelling to foreign countries, journaling, going to concerts and festivals  and basically doing things I never before had the time to. Despite of this sounding very cheesy, it works out perfectly and I can proudly say I am having a wonderful, fantastic, groovy summer! Ehem, and I am also working for a local newspaper - which is actually great fun, I get to go to cultural events without paying, haha, and I really enjoy writing, so that's quite cool.
Please excuse the massive amount of talking about myself lately!

Summer means colors, lovelies! Which is why I bought this T-Shirt, I love the design. Actually, it's from the men's department - most of my clothes are, frankly. Everything about men's shirts is better than the ones in the women's department! First of all, the fabric is way softer and more comfortable. The pattern is way nicer in my opinion, I don't like slim clothes which I don't fit in anyways. Half of my clothes (I'm serious, I counted!) are men's T-Shirts. And the collection is growing further and further. Besides the T-Shirt, I am wearing a white collar which is so old I can't remember where I bought it, and a velvet black skirt I made by myself. The shoes have been my sister's but now they're mine (insert Gollum's laughter here) - they're perfect! They're see-through! How cool is that?! They also function as wellies which makes them even better. Underneath, I am wearing my Frida Kahlo socks. I usually hate yellow clothing, but these socks... ohmy. Frida portraits on your feet? Yes please! I am crazily collecting clothing related to Frida and everytime I wear one of my Frida items, I feel totally strong and undefeatable. If I'm going deeper in my obsession  love for Frida, this post would never end, so I'll just stop.


So you've probably gotten the gist that all my clothes I am wearing here are great, but I think they fit together perfectly: The socks color-match the shirt, and I love the combination of clothes which belong to both sides of the gender binary. I like contrasting stereotypically male clothes (white collar, T-shirt) with stereotypically female ones (skirt). Anyhow, I have been questioning and thinking about gender a lot lately, which is why I'm incorporating items made for men in my outfits as well as taking style inspiration from boys as well as from girls. I will probably go deeper into this in a following post. I have some great ones planned, by the way. Only need more time! I guess I will just give up on sleep totally - it's too hot anyways! I believe as soon as I have free time, I'm flooding my planner with all kinds of events I usually don't have the time to visit...
Anyways: I hope you are all having a great summer!

Lots of love,

Mary

Femme fatales emerged from shadows to watch this creature fair, boys stood upon their chairs to make their point of view, I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey. Lady Stardust sang his songs of darkness and dismay.




Hi lovelies!
BIG, BIG NEWS. I have finally graduated! Tadah!
Well, the official ceremony takes place on friday (with prom and all that stuff - I'm so exited) but technically, I am finished with school! And I am ready and prepared for having a perfect last summer before working and going to College. It actually is a mix between feeling totally grown up and being scared of the big world, but mostly, I am extremely exited and very happy about not having school but loads and loads of spare time to spend at festivals, concerts, culture events, art and with my friends! I have decided to document every second of this summer and my journal is full of stuff already.

As I said in my last post, I have felt a rush of creativity and have been more motivated than ever to let my personal unicorn shaped freak flag fly! And therefore, I have bought the literally best Tee ever. To be honest, half of my closet consists of tees found in the men|s department, but this one is different. It it, let|s name it, cosmic. Galactic. Otherworldly awesome. It is more than an alien face on a black background. It is a glowing alien face on a black tee. The alien reacts to sound! The more sound, the more glowing, basically.

How perfect is this tee?! It is fascinating. And if you think it costed me, like, half an arm, it was just fifteen bucks! Actually, it makes me really happy.
I kept the rest of the outfit simple to emphasize the awesomeness of the tee. I bought the midi skirt two weeks ago (it is from Pull&Bear) and I have been wearing it a lot since then. Usually, my skirts are a lot shorter, so it makes a nice change in my closet and is also way more practical than mini skirts. The badge I am wearing shows Dr. Frank n Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (what could be more fitting to a lien tee than a alien badge?). The boots are also kinda spacy, I think. They were a gift from my boyfriend and I kinda overwear them. Furthermore, there is black lipstick which I have not worn in a while but it kinda just matched the general blackness of the outfit perfectly.



In other news, I have made a Facebook Page for my blog! Visit it here, and I would love to get a thumbs up from you! That would be lovely.

Well, I hope you're all fine and having a great summer!

Lots of love,

Mary

Make me jump into the air, keep your electric eye on me babe, put your ray gun to my head, press your space face close to mine, love - Freak out in a moonage daydream!



Hello lovelies!
If you have wondered why I look that horrible in these pictures, it's because I'm sick, which is not that bad actually as I now have a valuable excuse for not getting dressed and lying in bed all day long. I have no school anymore! It is strange, though, because I have gained a lot of unknown freedom all of the sudden but I'm not too sure how to deal with it. Well, actually, I am not yet done with school - one exam out of five left. So far the exams have been very difficult; I did my best, though.
Funnily enough, after the major school/exam pressure was over, I felt a sudden rush of creativity. My sense of creative fashion suffered quite a lot the past two years and - sadly - I even neglected it. Most of the time was spent in T-shirt and jeans, paired with a flower crown and outfit repeating. There was so much going on in my head and life that I simply had no time and power left to create. However, since school is over, I have been experimenting more and more with my wardrobe! I have been thrift shopping a few times, made a T-shirt, worked on collaborations with fashion companies and have been journaling more. Awesome, right? So, y'all, be prepared for so many posts coming up! (I mean it). I'm going to get into this a lot more from now on! :)

I'm also trying to get the best out of my wardrobe and trying a few new combinations - as I did here. I love this outfit, as it is summer-y and sassy at the same time! I am wearing my beloved Rookie Shirt (24/7, honestly), a tulle skirt from when I was like eight or something (hint: going to wear this at prom!), and I glued some silver stars on my face. I have been listening to David Bowie all day, so a little freakier makeup was obligatory! I have been really into tulle skirts lately, I love how dramatical and still dreamy they look! So this one has been essential for my inspiration lately. Furthermore, the boots I am wearing are lovingly called Major Tom boots by me, as they really remind me of David Bowie/Astronauts! The flower crown I am wearing (outfit repeater, see last post... sorry) was handmade by myself at home. By the way, I bought a new Bowie record last week, yay!
The most remarkable thing about this outfit, perhaps, is that it is totally white. To be honest, I have spent the entire winter and also most of the cold season which actually was supposed to be spring (thumbs up for German weather) in black or mostly dark clothing - now that it is getting warmer I intended to wear more colors and brighter outfits. It works somehow, but not always.




isn't he... incredible? Just look at his hair!

Anyways, I am really happy about my current creative mood and will post a lot more from now on (I really mean it this time!). I have a gazillion ideas in my head!

Lots of love,

Mary

It was an April morning when they told us we should go, how could we say no? With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had... Oh to sail away, to sandy lands and other days, to touch the dream, hides inside and never seen. Into the sun, the south, the north...




Hey folks!
I'm torn between procastinating and therefore posting or finally studying for my absolute final exams. I will graduate in two months, isn't that totally crazy? I have my first big test in exactly eight days and have not studied nearly enough as I should have done. To post or not to post, that is the question.
Well, we all know the answer. The weather is amazing, how could anybody bear staying inside to study?! I spent the whole day outside wrecking my wreck-this-journal, studying like half an hour and then returning to happier things like food. I've really been in need for a relaxed day lately - school is putting so much pressure on me, it's horrible. However, next monday will be my last day of school in all my life. I don't even know how to put it into words, it is a strange situation as I should be kinda melancholic and extremely happy but actually, I am just so bored by the lessons and stressed by studying all afternoon which is an even weirder combination. Right now, it's a mixture between feeling guilty for not studying, feeling slightly melancholic but happy at the same time because the sun never fails to cheer me up (I don't know why I don't seem at least slightly happy in the pictures, though).

To much talking about my life again - I hope you don't mind. Well, I dressed according to my current mood pretty schizophrenic in black and white. Now, let's please take a second to take a deep breath and appreciate this jacket. It's basically the most perfect jacket humanity has ever seen, right? How genius is this design?! I love the clear, basic look combined with the beautiful face. The fabric is also perfect and - it still gets even better - it was only four euros!
I wear some random black shirt and also a skirt which I sewed a couple of weeks ago. It's black velvet, which I really like. The flower crown is lilac, which happens to be a color I normally avoid, but I still love flowers of this color and so I created this little crown together with my boyfriend a few weeks ago. The socks are my sister's, but they're Happy Socks, how could I resist borrowing them?
This outfit really summarizes my current asthetic - black, white, graphic designs and a flower crown. Basically the perfect look if you're extremely tired in the morning because you don't have to open your eyes while choosing your outift, as everything will go well together.



I really am in love with this jacket.

In other news, I have been to the Autralian Pink Floyd Tribute Show! AAAH! It was incredibly, like, otherworldly incredible! The use of the approximately one thousand lights was so accurate and amazing, especially when they played "Shine on you crazy diamond" - which they actually played in full length ( one third of the entire concert, basically!). Also, at one point during the concert, a giant pink kangaroo appeared on the stage and the teacher from Another Brick in the Wall, and, wow, I have no words to tell you how amazing it all was.
It also was quite funny, because my boyfriend and I were the youngest people there - by far. I guess my taste in music is slightly different than the average teen, haha.


It definitely was an unforgettable experience and I am still totally in awe when I think of how great it was. Such a great birthday present!
Anyways, I hope you are having a lovely spring!

Lots of love,

Mary

All the modern things like cars and such have always existed - they've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment, listening to the irritating noises of dinosaurs and people dabbling outside...




Hey there.
I'm pretty proud of myself as I am right now writing a post for the second time a month. I guess March was a good month - very stressful, though. I had to write eight tests in school, plus having rehearsals for a play last week in which I had the main part. And, of course, my birthday! I'm seventeen now.
Besides the fact that I now can quote Bowie "I'm seventeen and my looks can prove it" and sing Dancing Queen for a reason, I'm not allowed to do anything I wasn't allowed to do before. Being a minor is really stressful to me, as I've always wanted to be an independent person which I can't only because of that stupid number that is age. However, I think seventeen is a very exiting age - it's somehow the final change from teenager to adult, or at least to a teenager who is supposed to be adult. It sounds nice, I guess.
I had a lovely birthday, by the way! I spent it with my family and friends, and as I mentioned last post, the weather was great and therefore my mood was, too. I got some really really cute presents which I'm going to integrate in a future post but there's something extremely exiting I've got to tell you. I am going to see the Australian Pink Floyd Cover Show this weekend with my boyfriend! PINK FLOYD, you get me?! I'm so very excited and happy about this!

Getting back to fashion now, because you probably want to hear that rather than me talking about me.
I am wearing two of my very favorite items: First, the socks. I bought them last year from Hot Sox, and they are incredible, right? There's The Scream by Edvard Munch on them and it's obviously awesome to wear such a wonderful work of art on your feet.
Second, I am wearing this T-shirt I made a few weeks ago: My personal Keith Haring interpretation. To be honest, I've never liked his stick figures, not at all, until last year when I finally learned more about him personally and about his art, too. I was amazed of how politically active, inspiring and revolutionary he was. And I made friends with his stick figures. I really love that T-shirt, because the stick figure is drawing the line which is exactly my awkward kind of humor.
I'm indeed mixing some very different artists in one outfit - but that's okay to me, as I have extremely different interests so when wearing your personality in an outfit, why not incorporate what seems contrary? Am I not kind of contrary by myself?
Wow, philosophy. Anyways, I am also wearing a denim dress I bought quite a while ago for three euros, I think. The shoes are also (quite) new, but they look worn already. I don't like snowy white sneakers, I think they need some kind of dirty character, if you know what I mean. On my dress are two badges: One with Kurt Cobain on it, the letters on the other one read "Art is hard" (which it is, especially if you have to do a ten pages paper for Art lesson in two weeks).


There's also an unusual amount of orange in this outfit - I normally don't wear orange because my skin tends to look like a corpse's one when doing so. But how could anybody resist wearing The Scream on socks? 
Here's some ~artsy~ inspiration which I thought matched this post quite well.
Keith Haring.
David Hockney.

Tumblr. The one below as well.

Well. I'll probably never get better at ending a post properly. 
I hope you're all fine (and by the way, thank you so much for reading my blog. Each and every one of you makes me utterly happy) and having a nice week/month/year so far.

Lots of love,
Mary
