Metallic sweater + leather skirt winter outfit // Clutch by Abathie Design | WHAT PIXIES WEAR – Fashion Blog First things first: I would like to say a very big thank you to the lovely Samantha from Beyond Brunette, who was so kind as to nominate me for the Liebster Award. ♥ In case you don’t know about it – the Liebster is a blog appreciation award given from bloggers to other bloggers, intending to spread the word about good quality blogs out there. It always involves 11 personal questions you have to answer – so here you go:

1. Who is your style icon?
There are many people whose style I admire, but if I have to choose one, it’s definitely Leandra Medine. I love how she doesn’t take herself too seriously and that she doesn’t give a damn about what other people say about her style. And she allows herself to make mistakes – it’s only with experimentation that you’ll find your style and let your true self shine.
2. How has your life changed since you started blogging?
It has definitely become less boring! Overall I’d say, my life is busier and more fulfilled than it was before. Plus, I have met a lot of new people and made some great friends.
3. What is your favorite accessory?
Well, that changes a lot – at the moment I’d say my dusty pink Matt & Nat vegan leather bag. It fits everything I need, and I can wear it across my body or tuck the strap in and wear it as an oversized clutch (a very, very good thing when you need your hands free whilst commuting but want some more style at work/a meeting/a party etc.)
4. Who/what inspired you to start a blog?
Other bloggers, obviously. ;) I had that huge need to create something of my own, and to communicate my passion for everything trend, style and fashion related.
5. Coffee or Tea?
Coffee all day everyday. But real coffee, please! At the moment we don’t have a coffee machine, so I’m sticking with black tea while at home, but get coffee on the go whenever I get the chance.
6. How would you describe your personal style?
As I said here, overall I think it’s always been mostly cute and girly with a little edge. But my style has definitely changed since I moved to Berlin – a bit more towards something like “clean and elegant yet laid-back with playful feminine elements”.
7. What is your favorite fashion decade?
The Sixties. Definitely. I would never ever say no to babydoll dresses and dolly shoes! Want proof? See this dress (one of the best dresses I ever made!) or this one. I even used to collect vintage dresses when I was younger, but kind of gave it up ever since that vintage craze started and stuff has gotten immensely expensive. But still, each season, whenever a designer borrows from that decade, my heart does a little dance. ♥
8. What is your favorite kind of shoe?
Ankle boots. And all kinds of flats, really. Which is not that good since I am pretty tiny, but I don’t really give a damn.
9. New York, LA, Paris, or London?
New York all the way! I love it. There’s definitely something to the line “these streets will make you feel brand new“. But London will always feel like home to me too – I lived there for some time way back in 2010. ♥
10. What is something you would like to accomplish this year?
You might have noticed this one already: I am actively trying to buy less sweatshop-made and more fair and sustainable clothing. I try to put a big focus on vintage and second hand clothing, as well as sweatshop-free basics, such as American Apparel. I am already excited for the review I’ll post at the end of the year!
11. What is one movie you could watch over and over again without getting bored?
A Clockwork Orange – it’s such an elaborate piece of art, there is no possibility that this movie ever gets boring.
