Outfit: The day that never comes.

Fringed tribal print kimono: Forever 21 || Metallica tee: Secondhand (actually from Urban Outfitters ; similar available) || Disco shorts: American Apparel ||  Platform heels: The Whitepepper 

Everytime I wear this kimono I kinda feel like a rockstar, the fringing is so dope! Its warm burgundy/dark red + slightly orange colors are perfect for pre-autumn days, but perfectly suitable for summer, too. It is very expensive looking, but it wasn't at all! It was only around 29$, to be honest I had never seen any cheaper kimono which was as beautiful as this one. I saw it on the US Forever 21 shop at first, but the european website (where I have to shop) got this beauty a couple of weeks later, so I checked the "new arrivals" section daily until they finally put it online. It was definitely worth the wait, it's surprisingly heavy (which is perfect for a cold breeze) and the fringing on the arms is way better than fringing on the hemline, because your fingers, rings and fringe won't tangle up. 
If I would sing in a rock band this would  be one of my stage outfits, that for sure haha! The metallica tee was a real bargain, I got it on a secondhand website for 1/5 of the original price and it's perfect for my band shirt collection. Metallica will probably always be my #1 rock band.

Update #8

New in…
My beloved "Gypsy Queen" leather jacket by Spell Designs. I had been waiting for that baby for more than 3 months until it was finally available to order. It's a one of a kind jacket with embroidered vintage fabrics and I know it will be in my life forever. I can't wait to show you the front (which is as beautiful as the back) and its fitting in one of the upcoming outfit posts. Furthermore I got new booties you already know from my post including the purple maxi skirt. Aren't they perfect? Btw: get ready for a "room tour" post including my jewelry and wardrobe next week! :-)

One of my favorite TV series is back on german TV - Under the dome! I really enjoyed the first season,  I love the story and how it thrills me. If you don't know it yet - try one episode, you will love it!

"Bonfire" by Knife Party. All day long, I'm addicted to that song!

Right now I actually save up some money for a jacket which will be released in October - it's a fringed, white leather jacket and I can't wait to have it hanging in my wardrobe and wear it! It looks just like the one Jimi Hendrix was wearing at Woodstock. It also has that blue beading details!! 

Instagram update & funny facts about me…
(follow my daily life on instagram! @TessaDiamondly)

Everyone has some (also really funny and weird) facts about oneself, here are some about me…
  • I've never been into eating food at restaurants - if I do, I'll love fast food restaurants like KFC or Subway (or food trucks selling Frozen Yoghurts)
  • Sometimes I eat a piece of cake (I like those with yoghurt toppings and with low fat) or other deserts for lunch
  • Because I'm already talking about food habits - I hate drinking water (which would be healthier, I know) instead I go for diet coke or sugar free iced tea. Furthermore I only drink iced coffee which I need/consume daily
  • I usually prefer online shopping. You have plenty of choice and I need to think about buying something before I do it in the end
  • … even though I shop online, it's hard for me to wait until it's delivered. I'm super inpatient.
  • Clothes have to be love at first sight and mustn't get out of my head
  • I'm an early bird. I can hardly sleep more than 6 hours
  • I'm constantly day dreaming 
  • I have no yellow clothes in my wardrobe (I don't like that color much)
  • I love listening to Kerrang! Radio on the internet. They play awesome rock music & make me discover new, catchy songs
  • I have an instagram addiction - I love browsing hashtags and constantly updating my feed

Outfit: Relive the 70s.

Floral "Gypsy Queen" castaway skirt: Spell Designs via Bycheryve || Fringed leather jacket: H&M || Led Zeppelin tee: ASOS || Necklace: Vanessa Mooney via Free People || Boots: Zara

Sometimes I browse through Tumblr and see pictures from the Woodstock festival in 1969 and even it was almost 50 years ago some people were dressed awesome and are truly an inspiration. Here's my modern version of a 70s inspired hippie look. Floral, swishing skirts were probably the key piece! You all know this print from a romper I posted in June (find it here), it's probably the most beautiful floral print I've ever seen in my entire life and furthermore it's no big surprise it's by my favorite brand "Spell". I already got that skirt in June, but even if it may sounds weird, I prefer wearing maxi skirts in autumn and rock them with a leather jacket and a biker/band tee. The colors of my Led Zeppelin tee match perfectly to the floral print and make the look less dark-looking. Fringed or biker leather jackets are definitely my weakness, you can never have enough of them and they go in all seasons. I'm planning to get another fringed one dropping in October/November, it's a white one and clearly Jimi Hendrix inspired. I can't wait for it to be released, so I'll be able to buy it and have it in my wardrobe! :-)

Outfit: My way or the highway.

Boho pattern kimono: Forever 21 || Backless dress with lace hem: Forever 21 || Necklace: Urban Outfitters || Boots: Ash

The best news at first: The kimono and the dress weren't more than 30€ together! I really loved Forever 21's latest pre-fall collection, because there were some awesome boho pieces which were clearly Free People inspired, but way cheaper. I actually don't wear that combo of kimono + dress so often, but it's really comfortable, feminine and summer-like. The print of the kimono immediately caught my attention - it looks like those vintage indian fabrics! Its colors are also very vibrant and a bit autumn-like (reminds me of falling, colorful, warm-toned leaves and indian summer).  If I would have to describe the dress, I would probably call it "boho-goth" like. It's a really nice basic and I also could imagine me layering it with a sweater and leather jacket in autumn/winter. It looks a bit like the Jada dresses sold at Brandy Melville but with a crochet hemline, doesn't it? It's a perfect layering piece in general, because you can wear it with any print you like - checks, aztec/tribal patterns, stripes and so on. Simply everything. xx

Outfit: Castaway.

"Bohemian Royale" castaway skirt: Spell Designs || Biker tee: Secondhand (originally by Truly Madly Deeply sold at Urban Outfitters) || Necklace: Urban Outfitters || Cowboy booties: Gamloong via Humanic

Summer's back again, there was 26 °C here in Germany this weekend! I wore this look on Saturday when I went for a walk and spend some time in my small hometown - I'm all excited about my new skirt by Spell Designs, because I had been looking forward to it for such a long time. It's from their latest "Bohemian Royale" collection (I blogged about it here) and I immediately fell in love with the purple print when I saw it in a sneak-peak picture on instagram first. It's very boho/70s inspired and it's perfectly flowy! That deep purple color with the beautiful light pink & blue flowers and borders totally got me. It's definitely a statement piece! I love rocking it with a biker tee, my silver tribal jewelry and cowboy booties. When it's getting colder the skirt looks probably even better with my beloved leather jackets! I bought the boots a couple of days ago when I spent some time in Nuremberg and looked through the shoe store (you can get them on, too!) and they're super comfortable and soft. I still have to break them in like you always have to do when you've got new shoes, but they won't be terrible to my feet, that's for sure. I really like their dark brown colors and belts, they go perfectly with boho/festival looks. I think everyone should own at least one pair of good cowboy ankle booties, because you can wear them with all kinds of bottoms like maxi skirts, mini skirts, shorts, denim pants, etc. and they will be with you for many years (always keep in mind buying good quality when you think of buying shoes… I'd rather have a few good quality boots instead of a dozen of cheap made boots which hurt my feet every time I wear them!). I hadn't owned any clothes in purple print before, but this print is probably the most beautiful one ever. You all know I have a 'lil Spell obsession, so I can't wait to show you my other new treasures I got (or are still on the way to me) soon.

Outfit: Reality is relative.

Plaid flannel shirt: Monki via ASOS || "we live by the sun.." top: Romwe || Distressed studded shorts: Romwe || fishnet tights: Forever 21 || Necklace: Zara || Boots: Dr. Martens 

Plaid flannels must be oversized, long and super soft and not too bright colored for me. I had searched for the perfect red/black checked shirt for ages before, then I saw this beautiful one at Monki's store, but the smaller sizes were all out of stock - so I decided to order it on ASOS and here it is - my perfect red plaid shirt. Great for layering or as a replacement for my beloved kimonos when they aren't cozy enough anymore! Flannels will never get old or boring, they're simply amazing and so comfortable! Here's a very grunge/punk inspired outfit again with some boho vibes (look at the top I wear! :-) ) and my favorite plaid combo: Fishnet tights + plaids = perfection. Fortunately long cut blouses/jackets always make it possible to wear your denim shorts even in autumn!
