malone souliers lois opoku style lisforlois
I cannot wait to wear these shoes out this summer. On a late summer night out, as I sip some wine and eat olives with bae. I'll remember the music that plaid in the background and the laughs we shared, how cute he looked in his shirt and the dress I wore. We'd go for a walk looking where the night would carry us until my feet cannot carry me no more.
'How silly of me to think I could last all day in these heels', I'd think. Sure the were comfortable, but I wouldn't last all day in heels not even in my comfiest pair. He'd stop for me to take them off, his hand in one and the shoes in my other, as we'd wander off into the night carefree as ever.

Blue coat Proenza Schouler ps1 Lois opoku
Hey Guys,

Finally sharing my 3rd Berlin Fashion Week look. I changed it a little from how I wore it during my shows, because I was in a rush that morning and picked the first thing that I could grab. I changed from black leather pants and sneakers into these fun pants Storets paired with fishnet socks and patent leather pumps (on sale for less than 20€) - my fav combination rn! I can't get over my new Proenza Schouler bag and you'll probably seeing a lot on this blog. If you want I can write up a little review about this bag and some tips about buying your first designer bag.
Let me know what you think about my look. Are you into bright colored coats for winter?

Gucci Dionysus Lois Opoku lisforlois
First Look of 2017,

And I finally get to style the iconic Gucci Dionysus and for a minute feel its realm of luxury me on. It's not mine though, I stole it from my friend Janine. Just like Carina (sucks she stopped blogging), Janine is a girl from my childhood that I've found again through blogging. We used to attend the same elementary school. Go check out her blog!
Everywhere you look, every blog you click on, you'll see the It Bag of the season, the Gucci Dionysus, there is no way around it. I too have fallen for the hype around this bag. Gucci has never been so in like right now, and never have fashion lovers been so proud to wear the double G plastered across their clothes and accessories. Admittedly just 12 months ago I associated the vintage double G with "Kanacks" (=fake tan, fake gucci and gelled back hair boys).
But Gucci is on the comeback and it's good.
Better than ever.

Lois Opoku lisforlois Kenzo hm Party
My last event before I left for Ghana was the long awaited pre-launch party of the H&M x Kenzo collaboration. These H&M parties are what people live for and everyone wants to get on the list, because not only do you get to shop the collection in a much secludedter crowd and certain amount of comfort (i.e. you won't get trampled over, you do not have to wait in line 6 a.m. in the morning when the store opens 9 a.m. plus you don't have to fight with shopaholic xyz over that same dress, because it's the last in your size!) a night earlier, but the party itself is super fun too.
The collection itself wasn't really a stunner and I think people weren't really buying into the hype as they did for H&M Balmain or Alexander Wang or Versace..

Lois Opoku fashion Week Streetstyle Grey Coat Leather culottes lisforlois
This is by far my favorite look of this season's Fashion Week. I wore it on the last day, so yeah technically this is day 4, but my following fashion week posts are in no particular order which is why I'm just going to be labeling as they come to keep things in order here on the blog.

As I said this was my favorite look, mainly because I got to wear this stunning jacket by designer VANESSAMORIN. I stumbled across her label through my homie Jean-Claude's Instagram and immediately fell in love with some of her key pieces. We got in contact and she allowed me to style this piece to fashion week. It was perfect for layering while still being the center of attention of the entire look. VANESSAMORIN is a Munich based Designer and manufactures her pieces in Europe. She even worked for Parisian fashion house Damir Doma after design school, but her label itself is what I would call clean and contemporary, casual yet luxurious.  "A woman wearing VANESSAMORIN appreciates and never loses the lightness of being."
Go check out her amazing label. I'm keeping an eye out for her as I can't wait to see how her label will evolve over the next years.

The ICONIC, the every-girl's-dream bag.
The level of sophistication and .
This is a vintage Chanel passed on to generation after generation. And over the years the respect and admiration for a Chanel only grows. I too want to pass on a Chanel to my daughters and their daughters. I want them to feel what it is like to grace yourself with a bag like this.
I suddenly feel especially lady like, empowered, exclusive and extraordinary.

It is amazing what one little bag embossed with a double C can make, how it can have such a strong hold and impact on you. How you suddenly carry yourself in the presence of that sign.
Chanel will always stay magical.
It is the embodiment of iconic.

Monster x Chanel headphones Lois Opoku lisforlois
The first glimpse of the exclusive collaboration of Monster and Chanel was first seen on the runway in Paris of Chanel's Fall 14/15 collection in Karl Lagerfeld's famous Chanel Supermarket installation. After Swizz Beatz and King Karl posed for a picture on Instagram everyone was talking about them.. and the hideous 12 000$ Chanel shopping basket. By that time I had long had confirmation that Monster was indeed working on a Chanel heaphone and I couldn't wait to see the product. Then the hype about the headphones died down a little. One week ago at IFA was the first ever official press reveal of the luxury headphones taking Monster to a whole new level. And I was one of the only few to lucky enough to be present.

Lois Opoku blue jacket ootd lisforlois
A couple of weeks back I enjoyed a cocktail evening with Jil Sander Navy. For the occasion I wore my midi-length figure hugging H&M Trend dress paired with a cobalt blue biker jacket and the perfect black bucket bag from Berlin based Designer Nina and her label Zookie. The is suede leather amazing.
Jil Sander Navy is very modern, clean cuts and silhouettes; the color scheme very simple: navy, bold green, black & white graphics and the occasional signal color orange as a subtle highlight. The store concept is a mirror of the Jil Sander philosophy. Jil Sander Navy reminds me a lot of COS but much more high end and quality. I was surprisingly very much into the new collection and I nearly picked the loafer high-heels to come home with me. The collection is very unlike me and what I'd usually wear. I prefer anything tailored at the waist, since that is what looks good on me.
But that's fun in fashion, being able to try new stuff out. Don't let yourself be defined by what's been, what you are accustomed to or people's idea of who and what you are. Be brave enough to try new things, new styles.

fashion week streetstyle winter Lois Opoku lisforlois
So finally continuing with my fashion week diary series. Uni is killing my vibe, my energy and my happy spirit. But what can I do. PS.: I just got the news that I passed my first exam.
Let me take you into my crazy adventures of Day 2 at Berlin Fashion Week.

Lois Opoku outfit berlin fashion week lisforlois
Last week was that time of the year again - Berlin Fashion Week frenzy, buzz, parties, events, runway shows and more fashion shows. This year I took it upon myself to take a more relaxed approach to fashion week and declined most invitations. I wanted to have time to still go to uni and choose only a handful of events that seemed most interesting for me. Nevertheless my schedule was pretty exciting and still quite packed. Here is the first post of my fashion week adventures. Let's get started!

footlocker week of greatness
This week was the Week of Greatness at Foot Locker, a very special week for all sneaker enthusiasts out there, because Foot Locker released 50 different style of pairs across the entire week with sneakers and classics from Nike to Adidas to Asics, Reebok and more. For me day 5 (26th November) had the most interesting release - the Nike Flystepper 2k3.
In celebration of the week, Foot Locker sent me a pair of Adidas Sneakers to style up. This is by far the

Guess jeans x lisforlois
If I'm sexy without question lies in the eye of the beholder, but what I mean to say or the word that I'm missing in the title is feel. I still feel sexy without question and I think I won't ever get over how good these pair of jeans make me feel. Being sexy is all about an attitude and a feeling you perceive and the perception you give. It's not really about the clothes you were (or you're not wearing), it's about an inner feeling. And if that is your boyfriend's shirt, the little black dress or your backless top that makes you feel that way, so be it.
For me it's messy hair, red lips or these pair of great fitted jeans.

Lois Opoku Winter outfit leopard lisforlois
In these dark cold winter days I love nothing more than my H&M Trend jumper that envelopes me in its warmth, cuddles me like a mother and caresses me like a lover. It's super cold outside but the dark days are over. Or so at least it feels. It's still cold outside, but the days are not deep blue anymore, they're sunny but cold.
I remember taking these pictures during one of those chill kissed deep blue days, where each breeze made me shiver and I was sure the Snowqueen was calling for me.

To be honest I don't know what I was doing taking outfit pictures outside. Being idiotic? It could have come close to a death wish, but I think I managed the art of looking good in winter without getting down with a flue or simply just freezing for once - for the first time, a skill I will never stop admiring the Scandinavians for. Deep down I felt a little Scandinavian timeless chic in my outfit and I will shamelessly admit this is probably my favorite outfit I've ever worn. So I had to capture it. For you, for me. But mostly I needed to record my advancement in the right direction towards looking great in winter while keeping warm.As you know I always wonder how they do it. How to strike the balance between being appropriately dressed and being stylish.
It's nourishing, it feels like an accomplishment and it feels good.

Hunkemöller Swimwear Berlin launch Lois Opoku lisforlois

Two weeks ago Hunkemöller launched their swimwear collection for SS14 here in Berlin and Sylvie  Meis looking way too beautiful to handle - her silk rosy ensemble? Fab! - was a special guest since she presented her capsule collection for Hunkemöller as well. The event was really gorgeously laid out with palm trees and drinks filled in coconuts truly chaneling the summer vibe, all of it making me want summer so badly of course. In a relaxed atmosphere I had the chance to have a closer look at the collection. From pretty pastels to gorgeous tribals prints, to neon, graphic prints and classic black pieces, it's all there in this collection. My wishlist grew with every piece I saw and suddenly I had 10 more reasons why I need to look sharp this summer and hit the gym asap, because as Hunkemöller says, I plan to Make It Unforgettable! It being this summer..

Lois Opoku WAG Streetstyle Adidas NEO Selena Gomez jacket lisforlois Munich Adidas FC Bayern München ticket lisforlois
Last Sunday was my first time ever at a stadium. Adidas invited Annie and me to come hang out for a game for the fixture FC Bayern vs Eintracht Frankfurt. We had dinner prior to the game in Adidas' sponsors lounge within the stadium, dessert and more beer in the break and more dinner after the game. Just before the game was about to start we walked down into the arena and took our seats. The minute I laid eyes on that pitch I was blown away, I nearly dropped my beer. It was such a magical sight and I was hit by the atmosphere and spirit in that stadium right away. We had the best seats, we were so close to the pitch but far enough that we could still see the entire pitch in one glance. Well it was very hollywood with the rain and the little mist and slight fog, the cheering fans all in perfect synch, how everything stopped for a second as I took it all in, except that it was real and mother nature does not stage. I couldn't stop smiling and staring. The game was too perfect too, they won 5-0.

Berlin Fashion Week Lois Opoku Streetstyle Januar 2014 lisforlois
On the second day I cancelled all my shows in the morning as I had run some very important last-minute errands for university. (Fingers crossed everything turns out well! If everything goes right, I'll be a lot happier in the next few months.) I was running late for my beauty appointments in the VIP Beauty Lounge so I sent my babe Carlinka to go in for me and get herself vamped up. I headed there to check on my beauty and they truly made her more gorgeous than she already is.

fur coats and disco pants Lois Opoku lisforlois
First outfit post of 2013! Sorry for not much happening here in the first week of the new year, but how have you been holding up? Made any new years resolutions? I'm working hard on my new blog, the new L is for Lois and I can't wait for it to go live. I'm just really sick of my ugly ass layout that I pieced together upon opening this blog. I really need some changes. In my life, my blog and the future.

I should really wear my disco pants more often. For me it was more of my going out /going clubbing fancy pants, but I think it works perfectly fine during the day. This winter so far has been all about my Zara pimp coat, even if it makes me look like a little puff ball.
About turtlenecks, I hated those to the moon and back because I always felt like they would strangle me and of course my mom would force me into those every winter during my child hood. This one I'm wearing is actually one of my favorite jumpers this winter. I bought it myself from H&M Trend last year and I kind of think turtlenecks are super chic. Funny how you hate one thing and then a few months later it can become your most favorite thing. What have you hated, then suddenly loved?
