I checked today my Spring / Autumn Coats and found these great coats I barely wear. The reason? They are too long! (Yes, I am too short- I get it) So I decided to shorten them, what I avoided for so long as I was worried to ruin them, but not to wear them isn't a solution either...

For what you can see Olivia looks perfectly great as usual and has her bitchy moments, Whitney needs to learn that fashion isn't only a glamorous industry (really big news! - lol) and there will be a lot of fights but everybody keeps their job or get a new one asap, so again no reality TV but a good comedian show... Will you follow this show? I will and only to see Kelly Cutrone kick someones a* and Olivias wardrobe.

Friday night with my black shorts, flower silk blouse, black cardigan, my skull scarf, black coat, bag and pumps.
First we had dinner with couple of friends. We ate a lot of sushi, I forgot to take a picture and didn't want to show you an empty plate. Then we had couple of drinks at the Trader Vic's bar in Munich, they have really amazing drinks. I love their iced glass but it melts really quickly, so the guys had to hurry up! (their is an extra glass inside, now worries- and the drink is way to strong for me :-)!) How was your weekend so far?

I'm in love with the Python Peep-toe Pumps of Alexander McQueen. Aren't these shoes adorable? Unfortunately, those are currently not in the budget -at all! (my parents both have their birthdays in April and I still don't know what to give!) But they would be so worth it! Especially the combination with the python skin makes my heart beat faster! Can you resist? Please go to net-a-porter and buy them, because when they are sold out I will feel a lot better. I hope...

I watched Alice in Wonderland this weekend and I loved the movie! I don't want to bore you with details and reviews about the movie but I have to tell you, that I was fascinated by the costumes! Alice wore beautiful dresses and it was amazing how one dress changed due growing or shrinking. The costume designer of the movie is Colleen Atwood, she really did a fabulous work! Unfortenately I couldn't find pictures of other outfits, but I hope you already saw the movie or will see it, so you will understand what I mean.
and Memoirs of a Geisha. She already worked several times with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Colleen has been involved with costumes on over 50 films.
Academy Awards and Nominations:
- Nominated: Best Costume Design -Little Women(1994)
- Nominated: Best Costume Design -Beloved(1998)
- Nominated: Best Costume Design -Sleepy Hollow(1999)
- Won: Best Costume Design -Chicago(2002)

- Won: Best Costume Design -Memoirs of a Geisha(2006)
- Nominated: Best Costume Design -Sweeney Todd(2007)
- Nominated: Best Costume Design -Nine(2009)
Sometimes I would love to work as a costume designer as well, I have some friends, who are styling for movies and TV (at the moment only for german ones) and I admire their work too.
So Ms Atwood, if you read this, please write me - I would love to work for you! ;-)

Just saw the pictures from the last collection of Alexander McQueen. The show was top-secret with only the most important people. The pictures are really breathtaking, it was all about the angels of Sandro Botticelli and the demons of Hieronymus Bosch. I don't know if angels and demons were really his inspiration or the press built that story, but perhaps he did put his personal conflicts into this collection, the loss of this genius is unbelievable.
