No. 2 Holly Golightly


Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) as Holly Golightly (Pic from: The New York Times

Holly was a young party-girl with a fascinating lifestyle. With her sexy charm, she got everything what (material things) she wants (expensive gifts from men). 

As a student, I don't have so much money, that I can buy me fancy clothes, shoes, bags and all. I'm a full-time student and lucky me I found a nice job last month! I work in a fashion store and I love my job. It's my first step in the fashion industry. It's been two years ago when I quit my well-paid job. I quit because I want a job which is fun and in my interests. So I decided to study and waived the money. I have less money now, but I must say I am much more confident (since I quit) and happy about my decision. 

I believe that everybody can have a great style with little money. It's important to invest in quality and longlasting pieces. I try to avoid clothes made of polyester or polypropylene. I prefer cotton and wool. I am ok with fabrics which are made of man-made fibers and non man-made fibers, but the share of natural fibers must be higher than the share of man-made fibers.

I'm saving money for some basics. It's getting colder in Germany and everybody is talking about what to buy for the winter. I need some water-resistant boots, a coat and a huge bag for all my textbooks from university. I don't want to buy every winter a new coat or boots. So I must be carefully with my choice...

This month I'll get my first pay and oh what a coincedence! It's Glamour-Shopping Week in october! That means 20% off in many stores. I want to take advantage of my shopping-card. And I hope I get some extra money, because it's my birthday!!

On my wishlist:
* Timesless boots: like the ones from Acne "Pistol Short Black"
* Timesless black coat which protects me from cold winter days (still looking for it since years...)
* the perfect bag: like the Classic Q Hillier Hobo in black from Marc by Marc Jacobs

The challenge: find cheaper alternatives!!

No. 1

Why that name? 
I think it sounds nice to say: "rice and soy". It's easy to remember and tells you something about my origin.

Who Am I?
I am 24 years old, student and I live in a small place in Köln, Germany. I just start my career in fashion last month.

So what is that blog about?
Well, we will see! I read a lot of blogs, most of them are fashion blogs. I'm obsess about so many things - I don't have specific ideas. I just found the right moment to really start my own personal blog.

I hate it to write long texts, because I am not good at it and I'm not a creative writer. So sorry for any misspellings or wrong punctuation! Maybe I quit after some posts. Depends on how much time I'll have during that semester full of courses, and the additional course in spanish (holla!) and working on friday and saturday (in a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig spanish fashion company).

By the way I'll hop from english to german or german to english! Depends on my laziness and my moods.

So I hope you enjoy my blog and I would be very happy about any comments <3
