COS in Berlin


Quite the provocative window display, no?


You didn't think I wouldn't share any more of my Berlin shopping experiences with you, did you? Well, one of the shops I enjoyed visiting and shopping in most while in Berlin was COS in Neue Schönhauser Strasse 20.

I actually had to visit twice and although I only got a couple of things for myself, I totally loved that shop!

Wanna see what I got?

Baggy, high-waist khaki shorts with matching tie belt.

I have discovered these past few years that the only way for me to do short shorts in summer and avoid looking like a tramp is by going for a really baggy, oversize and generally old-school safari style. And since my old ones from Bershka are about 5 years old now and starting to fall apart, I decided to splurge on some new COS ones. And you've already seen them on action in my previous post, along with the Laura Laine tank top.

Cream snakeskin leather necklace.

I think it will look great as a statement piece worn with total-black outfits. I've already did a test-drive with a black tee above and I love it!

Bonus, it was 50% off. Gotta love those mid-spring sales!


I also got this blue silk skirt as a present for my sister. She totally loved it and I am kinda regretting it now I didn't get one for myself too! Maybe I'll just have to borrow it when she's not looking...

@Elena
And I'm jealous of all your Accessorize statement necklaces!

@Hari K
Την είδα, και μια κοραλί πιο μακρια και πολλά άλλα, αλλά για μια φορά κρατήθηκα και πήρα αυτό που πραγματικά χρειαζόμουνα. Δεν ξέρω πως το έκανα αυτό, μην με ρωτήσεις.

@Daisy Dukes
Thanks girl! They're both really old and have been featured here in this blog tons, that's why I didn't mention them.

@Rena Tsan
Κανονίστε να πάτε με τα παιδάκια, θα ξετρελαθούν στο aquarium και εσύ στα ψώνια. Δεν γίνεται κανα tattoo convention εκεί?

You can borrow it, if you ask nicely ;-)

@Mode Junkie
I think it must have been something like 12 or 13 euros, and it's real leather too!

ααα στη πρωτο φωτο περασα το κολιε για καπελο (σκιαστρο) και λεω καλε, που θα το βαλει? αλλα ναι ειναι κολιε... οντως πολυ ξεχωριστο

lopi said...

@stella
χαχα, και να φανταστείς έχω ένα τέτοιο καπέλο visor και το φοράω αυστηρά και μόνο σε ερημικές παραλίες όταν δεν με βλέπει σχεδόν κανένας! δεν μου πάει καθόλου, αλλά είναι τόσο πρακτικό γιατί δεν ζεσταίνεται τόσο το κεφάλι σου και δεν στο παίρνει ο αέρας.

Princess Margot said...

Ohhhhhh!!! I am madly in love with that necklace!!!!!!
