Music from the sweet sweet 90's

There's no day, not a moment without music. I have this song on my MP3player for a long time now and whenever I listen to it, I remember those good old days in the 90s. I can't really describe the feeling, but it kind of creates a comfort zone, where you're safe and you can relax. And I encounter the same feeling when I listen to Bon Jovi's Keep the Faith...even the videos shout that the 90s we keeewl!: )

Scraps of street fashion

My last posts were only about music, so now I feel it's time I post some photos or write something about fashion. So, here you have my and randomness again. It's not a specific Miss Katjes street fashion serial, only fragments of pleasant afternoons, usually taken on the way home from the office.

The last two pics were taken in the rain while the sun was shining and I was desperately looking for a rainbow.

Mise en scene

Did you see the movie 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind'? Now, that's a great movie! I love Jim Carrey's "serious" roles. You see the mask (haha, the mask:) of a little nerve-racking humour, but you can sense the serious, sometimes painfully shocking truth underneath. Anyway, the director of the movie is Michel Gondry. I really like his storytelling, the atmosphere of his scenes, the characters. I think everybody knows this Levi's commercial (btw, talking of Levi's, my favorite item at the moment is a pair of old Levi's bfjeans, ooo, gosh, where are the skirts and dresses??) So, this is a great commercial. Another masterpiece of Gondry which I simply adored from the moment I saw is Steriogram's Walkie Talkie Man...where I think the music is a great plus...Dunno, it just feels like dancing to it. It's punk, it' fun!

Teenhood memories

It was around 1999 when I discovered Silverchair. I was so crazy about their songs that I was surfing the music channels for hours, just to see their videos. I even cried a little here and there because of that beauty and joy of the art of music I discovered in these songs. It's rock, it's grunge, call it whatever you like, it's great to listen to even today. Haha, it's so funny, I remember that feverish teenage enthusiasm when I entered the first internet cafe to google the lyrics of these songs. I wrote them down and learned them by heart and I was sooo happy. I kind of miss those days. Anyways, here's Ana's Song and Miss you love. :)

'I prefer not to'

PJ Harvey is one of my favorite singers. Whenever I feel grumpy or need something that gives energy, I listen to her. I like her whole attitude, the message of here songs, like she would say 'hey, this world's crazy, give me the gun.' (just as she's telling in the song called 'Big Mistake'). Nowadays I'm feeling kind of peculiar with lots of ups and downs and just asking myself is it worth putting your soul out? Because even those don't give a sh*t whom you'd like to trust, to understand, to accept, maybe. This is when you reach the point of listening to PJ and feeling cool and showing that litte-magic-middle finger. I'm so much tired of lies and hopes and dreams that will certainly never come true...of arrogance, injustice and stupid prejudice. And this is what makes PJ's music so good.

Lazy sunday moments

Nostalgic moments with one of the best The Killers songs of all. I really get into a great mood while I listen to these tunes and it's really great singing it on rainy evening like this. Enjoy :)

Stories old and new, good and even better

I thought I'd give a shot putting together some new/older photos with friends, outfits in a mere randomnes, telling stories of happy happy moments, travels, holidays, friendships, feelings and smiles. The reason? Dunno. Just randomness provided by randomness.

The photos were taken by various artists.

Weekend trip outfit

How I love creative ideas when it comes to combining fabrics and colors and simple thoughts and feelings! Especially when great photos are taken of the result. Timi featured the blog on a previous occasion(dresses for weddings, a post that you can visit here.) Now here we have these photos of the day that she spent at Félixfürdő. She travelled by train, ate ice cream, saw water lillies and had a great time :).

If you're having photos of your humble selves in a nice outfit that is creative/interesting/out of the ordinary and want to show it here, feel free to bomb my inbox with your pics and ideas.
