About Lola

The fashion/culture blog "Lola Channing" was created by Veronika Kaufmann. Lola curtsies to the style and wit of Old Hollywood, the grace and poise of ballet dancers and the importance of a great coat. Lola focuses on a minimalist approach to fashion (really,buy less crap**) and a prodigious approach to books. Oh, and mystery. A touch of stylish reserve is never verkehrt. Veronika was born in the US to Austrian parents. This resulted in cultural cross-pollination, bilingualism, burgers and ballet. Some of her experiences and observations are revealed here; more in her upcoming book: burgers and ballet, my life in a bun, a style guide

 **buy less crap: Vivienne Westwood said: buy less, buy well. That is something I've taken to heart in all areas of my life. When it comes to clothing, something I read recently on Alyson Walsh's blog 'thatsnotmyage.com' makes sense: don't buy a piece of clothing unless you think you'll wear it at least 30 times. A pretty good rule of thumb, especially for the more expensive items.

the buy less, buy well credo can be applied to all aspects of your life: beauty products, wardrobe, food, furniture, gadgets & gimmicky stuff. Think before you buy. But more on that in my upcoming book burgers and ballet, my life in a bun, a style guide. If you like romance, history and time travel, I have published 'the french girl' under my romance novel pseudonym Lola Channing, currently available to read for free here
