The idea that I've been blogging for over a year is strange. Just like the idea that this blog will be a year old within a few weeks. It feels like I just started blogging. But enough reminiscing, I'll cross that bridge when the time is there. This definitely is the end of August. The weather this month was colder than usual in August. It felt like an early fall. But this has happened the last few years and the beginning of the fall was mostly good. Lets hope that this year it will be the same.

The new collection of Trend, the more luxurious and unique line of H & M, is in stores and online. I already showed three items in this post. Again and again I see this collection isn't something I like. But I do think it's cool that H & M does have this line. Because I'm sure some of you will like (some of) these items. I gotta say I like the jumpsuit and I kinda like the brown vest.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are the faces of the H & M Christmas TV and print campaign. The singers have sung together before and are friends. So far this is the only shot realized. I'm sure more images will come soon, because before you know it's Christmas. And it's normal to release image before the actual collection will be online. I'm rather curious to the collection. Lady Gaga is known for her rather eccentric outfits. Then again, she didn't make the items herself.

A week ago I posted about a controversial T-shirt from Zara. The T-shirt had a quote on it, 'White is the new black'. Now Zara had another rather painful shirt in their collection (it's not available anymore). It was a shirt with blue stripes and a golden star on it. While the chain said the star referred to the old wild west and their sherrifs, customers thought other wise. They thought it had an eerie resemblance to clothes people had to wear in concentration camps. You might think why post this on my blog? I want to show that fashion has it bad sides at well. I'm really curious what you think about this shirt. Do you see the resemblance or do you think people overreacted?

It's time for some pretty dresses again. The Emmy Awards aired yesterday in the States. Award shows are always fun, because you get to see the celebs all dressed up. Especially when it's the Emmy's or the Oscars. The MTV Video Music Awards and the People Choice Awards are far more laid back. Even though with the latter shows you get wackier outfits. With award shows like the Emmy's the outfits aren't that wacky. Now let's look at a lot of pictures!
H & M send a news letter with a discount code of 25 %. This was too tempting. I spotted a purple high waisted pants a few days earlier. I really want to order the pants, because it was only € 19,99. But it was already sold out in my size. I checked everyday and finally I could order it. The discount made it even more awesome, since the pants would now become € 14,99. So basically it's like I don't have to pay forwarding charges. Which I do, but with the discount the pants is € 19,89 with forwarding charges. The only disappointing thing is that the pants will arrive in September and October. My mom ordered these pants for me as well in a different size. With the discount code of course.

August is flying by as quickly as the rest of the year, which is quick. My mind seems to think we're just starting summer but it's not. It's almost over. Which sounds really dramatic. But I'm so not ready for rain and the cold. Then again, I do feel like wearing sweaters, vests and coats. Just not in really cold weather. Humans, we can make everything so complicated!
