Who doesn’t have a song, or movie, or a perfume that reminds us of someone we love? What about someone we hate? In my case, I thought for a while that it was the purple lipstick that I disliked, because I knew someone who wore it all the time and I told her she looked like a slut every time she had the lipstick on … I realized that the lipstick had no fault … she really was a bitch. Tried it for this photo shoot, it definitely looks better on me and for sure it doesn’t have the same connotation 😉
So, back to the photos, I made this shooting in Denklingen a small village at only 50 km from Köln, Germany, which is practically my second home as I live here for more than three months a year. This village is so conservative that fashion is a TABU subject. People here are so relaxed and time seems to run so slow here, almost nothing happens and each day routine is something you can’t play with … well, I can! Each time, when I dress a bit colorful and out of the ordinary people stare at me like it is the Circus in town. In time, I got used to this, even if in the beginning I thought it was a bit disturbing. Looking like a little bear with my fluffy jacket which I love because is so cozy and it keeps me warm and a dress made like a patchwork, with an asymmetrical shape – this is how I went out to find some Christmas presents. This patchwork thing is so great because its composition of different fabrics, textures, that can look so cool pieced together into a larger design, and the multitude of colors – you can match it with almost anything. I was thinking if I should have worn heels, but in the end, the over-knee boots seemed a better option regarding the weather outside.
This time, the winter glasses (I called them like this because there was no sun :)) ) were my favorite accessory!
