SPRING COAT

spring coat Lois Opoku lisforlois
What's good my blog fam?

God, what have we done to our earth with global warming? The weather has never been more bipolar than the last couple of weeks, going from hot to cold, sunshine to monsoon in matter of 24h hours.
You might want to consider adding a spring coat/ trench coat to your wardrobe this spring especially with this sad excuse of a weather. Combating a cloudy cold windy day has never looked more cute than in a trench or spring coat. But not a boring camel trench - don't get me wrong, a nicely cut camel trench coat is classic!
I stumbled upon this coat from River Island and I just had to get it. It's a little to heavy now for spring, but consider lighter option. The color and print just make it an eye catcher!
I spied some more cute options from Topshop.
Nisi also wore the cutest trench for spring in vichy print (girls take note! Plus it's on sale). They can be such a statement piece and the focal point of an outfit. Throw it over a pair of jeans and a simple T-Shirt and watch your look go from nothing to something.

KICKBOXING IN ODLO CERAMICOOL

170328_Odlo_Boat_Sessions_358
Hey guys,

I finally had the chance to do a kickboxing class! Kickboxing, pole dancing and indoor cycling have been high up on my list of things to do and try before I do and I'm so happy I got to cross two of my list. (The other thing I tried was cycling - but more on that in a separate post..)
Odlo invited me to try out 45 mins for Kickboxing in light of their launch of their latest collection which includes a new technology called Ceramicool, an airing system that cools your skin down to 1°C during physical activities, as the material which has a special yarn mixed with ceramic, helps radiate your own body heat off meaning at even high temperates when your body is working, you have a cooling effect.
Especially now that's getting warmer and summer is approaching a Ceramicool shirt comes in very handy for outdoor activities.
The Ceramicool collections includes 3 different types - Ceramicool Seamless (entirely made from the ceramic yarn), Ceramicool Pro (mix from ceramic yarn and intelligent mesh positioning) and Ceramicool (ceramicool technology only in sensitive areas of the body i.e. armpits, neck and back).

RUFFLED BELL SLEEVES

Ruffle bell sleeves lois opoku lisforlois
Hey Guys,

It's a wonderful Saturday and initially I wanted to go shoot some more content for the blog today. But let's just I say I had one of the most random Berlin nights last night and I'm still feeling the aftermath of an excessive party night. Haven't had so much fun in a while. Berlin's randomness that can make or break a night is kind part of its magic.
I'm off to the cinema to watch Beauty and the Beast. Can't wait to see Emma Watson bring Belle to live!

Go enjoy the sun, your day and have a wonderful weekend!

Love Lois xxx

SPRING IN FAUX FUR

Fur schnürtop lois opoku lisforlois
Hey guys,

It's finally spring, the days are seemingly getting (not really) but occasionally the sun comes out to play in Berlin. Soon spring will be in full bloom and I'll be able to shed all those layer that kept me warm. I found this coat I bought maybe 3 or 4 years ago at Zara in my closet. I mnust admit I have a lot of clothes I buy during Sale season and end up at the back of my closet after of month of excessively wearing them. I've kind of fallen for this fur ball again, although it makes me look somewhat like a bird haha! The rest of the pieces I'm wearing are all sale finds, the strappy top is from last year Zara, the bag I got in January - also Zara. The pants I found at Bershka and I must admit I was surprised at the perfect fit. As you know my booty-to-hips ratio is not made for the European market aka "slim thick with your cute ass"-Problem. Only Levis introduced pants made for my shape - the Levis Curve ID (I'm a bold curve), but Levis is costly and the wash I have I don't wear that often.
These pants from Bershka fit like Curve IDs. My shoes were my biggest steal 12,99 Mango.. uh yes?!

Good night kids!

GRL PWR - PWR GRL

Lois opoku pink Trenchcoat style lisforlois
Hey guys,

Ok so right now I'm in a deep hate-love relationship with Instagram and it feels like it's getting worse every time I open the app. But one thing I will forever be grateful for on Instagram is that fact that there are so many great brands and creators and people and places and hotspots to discover. Instagram is like a global hub of hidden gems once you dig deeper than your shitty "explore page" spammed with dumbass (sexist/I'm being cheated on/wtf even is your message/ completely wrong ideals) "comedy" videos or naked botox ass face girls and unrealistic #bodygoals.
This is how I recently discovered Likalla and immediately fell in love with the brand created by Lisa and Katrin.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 4 - BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK

Lois-opoku-berlin-fashion-week-shearling-aviator-coat-lisforlois
Hey Guys,

I'm back with my final look from Fashion Week. Unfortunately I ended picking up my brother from hospital instead of running around my last 2 shows because he had an accident, so I didn't actually get to wear my last look to Berlin Fashion Week. But since I had been looking forward to this look the entire week and it had been one of my very few planned looks I had to shoot this look anyway afterwards as I was and have been dying to share this one with you. It's super dark for a typical "me" look. I usually go with colorful choices, but sometimes, every now and then I feel like exploring my dark side.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 3 - BRIGHT BLUE & PROENZA SCHOULER

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?

BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 2 - THE PUFFER JACKET ON BOMBER

Lois-opoku-Puffer-jacket-fashion-week
Hey Guys,

Puff jackets seem to everywhere ever since the red jacket from Balenciaga emerged on their runway and ad campaign - Balenciaga basically declared them the IT fashion statement piece of the season. I too have fallen for the trend even though Grace kept stopping me from buying them - literally. She made me hand the Zara one I spotted back. (Tipp: Zara is always quick to copy fashion trends, styles and designer It pieces. If you can't afford the real deal, take the copy. After all they say "Fake it til you make." -  Although personally I'm not a big advocate for copycats.) Thank god for Grace, because a little later I found the perfect one at Bershka for 16€!

THOUGHTS ON INFLUENCER AND THE BLOGGERSPHERE - BERLIN FASHION WEEK DAY 1

Lois opoku style berlin fashion week
Hey guys!

How has your week been so far? I'm still procession what's been going on in the bloggersphere right now. Every season after Fashion Week its the same old story, a bunch of "Why I hate Fashion Week"- post surface right along with "Why I hate people that write about why they hate Fashion Week" counterparts. While there may be some good arguments on both sides it gets boring. It's the same old shit. I was ready to brace myself for the wave of those again, not bothering to take a stand on my own, because what I'll say has been said numerous times in rephrases.

THE LEO FUR COAT AND PEARL JEANS

lois opoku leopard print fur coat outfit
Hey guys!

While you are reading this I'm going through my pictures from Fashion Week. January is going by in a rush! Right after Christmas I made huge hauls from Bershka and Topshop (got so many pieces for 10€) which I may or may not show you on my Youtube channel, depending on how I manage with time. The pants I got from Pull&Bear during the Cyber Monday/Black Friday sales, which I think I also linked in my Black Friday/Cyber Weekend sales guide, may be my fav new jeans. They are mom fit, which usually does not complement my figure at all, but I thought looked so cute that I ordered them anyway. This coat was a purchase just before Christmas and it's been keeping me warm since! I think a leopard print fur coat can be such a statement piece to own in your closet. It upgrades any casual look! Imagine that coat with black skinny jeans, similar boots, black pullover and a beanie. How cute is that for winter?

CLASSY IN GUCCI DIONYSUS AND CAMEL

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.

New Year, New beginnings..

I hope you've all had a good start into the new year and Christmas with your family was good! I hope you wore your sparkly dresses and celebrated the arrival of a new year, a new chapter with a bang! I tried to go on a social media detox, but it didn't quite go as planned. I did retreat and posted as good as nothing on my social platforms, but at night when I couldn't sleep I would scroll through Instagram, which really wasn't the point of my detox at all. I did however take some time to recharge and shift my focus. What do I want in life? Where should my blog go?
I'm itching to create, grow and evolve.

I've come up with a few goals I've set for my blog this year. Here they are:

L IS FOR LOIS x FOOT LOCKER: HOW TO STYLE A SNEAKER 4 WAYS

puma footlocker lois opoku
Every year the same old story: Foot Locker's Week of Greatness. It's a become a tradition here on the blog and I never get tired of it. Foot Locker releases a crazy bunch of super cool sneakers and I get to highlight my favorite here on the blog. This time I chose the Puma Fierce that I styled up in four completely different ways. Can we just take a minute to acknowledge the fact that Puma has made a major comeback this year? Ever since Rihanna took over it's been going uphill. Well played Puma, well played. Of course Foot Locker released a few new Pumas (like the Puma Fierce I'm wearing) during Week of Greatness, along with some sick Jordans and Adidas NMDs, some in exclusive colour ways to Foot Locker.
In honour of Week of Greatness I decided to show you 4 different ways I'd rock sneakers. Here is my week in sneakers lookbook. Friday's we wear high heels to party :P
If you know me, you know I hardly ever wear heels IRL. Nothing goes over the comfort of a sneaker..
But keep reading to see the looks! :D

BEAUTY-HOW TO WEAR// BENI DURRER LOOK PALETTE HELENA

Lois Opoku BENI DURRER beauty look lisforlois
Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've done a beauty post and I want to change things up a little here. I've had plans all year, but life forced me to put them on hold. Now I'm ready to continue. From now on I will be filling my beauty section, but I've divided it into parts. I will have "How To Wear" posts in which I highlight new collections/limited editions, full seasonal drops by a brand in a make up look. "Get The Look" will feature random products from PR Samples/gifts I've gotten I've thrown together into a look, "My Beauty Problems" will cover tackling my beauty problems (post hyperpigmentation, pimple outbreaks, dry skin etc.) and in "Beauty5" I will show you my fav beauty products from a special category I'd like to highlight.
That being said, here is my first "How To Wear" post featuring summer 2016 product range by Beni Durrer! Hope you enjoy it.

KENZO H&M PRE-LAUNCH PARTY

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..

BROUGHT THE AFRICAN SUN BACK WITH ME

culotte streetstyle lois opoku lisforlois
Hey Guys,

How have you been? I just got from Africa and I have to admit the climate change was brutal. So brutal I got sick the minute I stepped of the plane in Amsterdam. Literally. However I brought the African sun with me in my heart which is why I'm sharing one more summery look with you. Tomorrow I'll share my insta diary from Ghana (you can see a preview of it right now on Instagram @LoisOpoku - check out my hashtag #lisforloisGHANA and then I'll share one more summer look and some more snaps from Ghana. Then I'll finally come to terms with winter and you'll get to see my winter wardrobe this year.
But for now I'll be happy with my summer look. Maybe it puts a smile on your face, maybe it'll make you miss summer as bad as me or maybe you're just wondering why I'm not in sync with the weather in Europe right now.
But somewhere on this globe it's still summer so.. (Ghana *cough*)

SUEDE AND LACED

Suede skirt Streetstyle  lisforlois
NEED
I cannot deal with Berlin's weather right now which is why I'm escaping to the last few of my summer looks that are still unpublished. This is one of the looks I wore to Bread&Butter. I mixed suede and tan with black lace up details and finished it of with gold jewelry. I've been loving my jewelry from Stella&Dot which I've been wearing to every outfit in different combinations, which is why it's all the more annoying that my favorite pieces are left to dust on his shelf right on top of his bed knowing I'll never see it again.. *eye roll*
Good thing material things can be replaced.. another emotional bruise from meeting him is so not worth it. If he were to man up, he'd send them to me instead of using them as a cheap excuse to force me or worse blackmail me into seeing him again.

Anyway, can we have summer back please?! Who even enjoys freezing winter..?
