|Ladies and Gentlemen, clear the ring for me!|
|Today, it is time for circus, so leave your sad faces at home!|
|This is the place to be funny, happy and a little bit crazy.|
|Being unusual is usual here.|
|Every artist wears a beautiful costume.|
|I am showing you my pompom act. Clap your hands and say "Pom, pom"!|
|The more you clap, the more pompoms will appear. Don't you believe?|
|Look there are two more and see how shiny they are!|
It is not always easy to spread fun and colour. Nobody is free of sadness and desperation and there are moments of trouble in every story, as well in mine. There are times, when even Lovely Sara feels gray, week and uninspired. I try to keep this blog free of bad feelings, because this is a place for fashion fun, for happiness and positive feelings. My mission is to make you smile and to help you to never loose your inner rainbow. Today I want to tell you a little trick that cheers me up when I don't feel happy: In dark moments I sometimes dream of running away and joining the circus. I am no performer, no fire-eater or tightrope dancer and I can't juggle with balls. This means the chances that I will actually do it are pretty low and to be realistic, I don't think I belong in a circus. Nevertheless it is a beautiful daydream and thinking about this place full of wonders helps me to find new energy.
Dressing myself in a colourful, whimsical fashion has a similar effect: I believe that colours have a positive effect on our wellbeing. Their power helps to feel better and stronger. Therefore this bright outfit is a huge dose of rainbow medicine. The pompom scarf from Irregular Choice keeps me not just bright, but warm as well and the fluffy fascinator from Pearls & Swine is made to spread happiness. This two items seem to smile at me constantly. They are the eye catchers of the outfit and the lace top from Zara and my vintage skirt don't steal them the show, but complete the look in a beautiful way.
Inspired by Helena Bonham Carter's appearance at the Golden Globes 2011, I choose to wear two different shoes (both Vivienne Westwood for Melissa) for this crazy outfit. I still don't understand why all the newspapers made such a fuzz about Helena's mismatched shoes. Do journalists have no sense for fun? People out there, don't take everything too serious! There are enough occasions in life where seriousness is required, but fashion is none of them and is meant to be fun. Just wear whatever you love, don't be too shy to make your crazy fashion dreams come true and most important: Don't be afraid of what other people might say! People who don't like you because you don't wear black shoes all the time are not the friends you want to have anyway. Don't dress like a wallflower, if your soul is a bird-of-paradise flower! If you love the circus, make yourself happy with including a little piece of this colourful world in your wardrobe.
Now please tell me, what do you think about my dream of the circus and my outfit.
