Old news...

This is what I wore yesterday. Except for the knitted Tiger dress and Pendleton hat ( I know you must be tired of it already), it´s all second hand. The bag was one of my best find to date! Its the perfect size and quality is really good too. I love it when I find second hand items like that...

Knitting project...

We bought this sweater from Lala Berlin 6 months ago, for delivery in August. Its quite similar to the one from Isabel Marant.

I have been wearing it so much so now I have a little knitting project going on. Beige and grey striped is the first to go, but I am planning to mix other colors as well.

I´ll show the result later...

Cubus event

Me and Line L went to this Cubus event the other day. Cubus is introducing a new Trend line which consist mostly of black and powder coloured pieces. Line L was wearing her Isabel Marant vest, and I was wearing my beloved Acne leather pants.

The two first (black) pieces, were our favorites from the Trend collection, and the two last ones are from the normal line, I need that poncho!

Winter boots

It´s raining cats and dogs outside, so it´s perhaps time to admit that summer is almost over. I am dreaming of a new pair of boots, when flicking through the news at lagarconne. One pair was added to the shopping basket. Guess which?

Oslo Nights

Found these on Oslonights from the Nina Jarebrink show during fashion week. Since it´s already autumn here, I took the opportunity to wear my vintage vest that I got from the St. Tropez market, the dress, bag and belt are all from Fretex (second hand). Line L was wearing her new fabulessly red Isabel Marants.

The last day..

Some more random pictures from Copenhagen. I had to take a picture of the girl with leopard shoes, leopard stockings, leopard bag and a blue leopard dress. More is more!

And somebody left their vintage CD bag while ordering a coffee....

And last, my outfit for the night...

Munthe plus Simonsen

After the Bruuns show it started pouring down, like I`ve never seen. And I´m not sure the Munthe plus Simonsen team had considered a what if scenario, so the outside show was quite wet.. It was fun though, luckily me and Silje got seats under one of the tents, so we were sitting under our umbrella under the tents, and I still managed to get soaking wet. Never mind, the show was colourful and beautiful, with a lot of looks, but these three are my absolute favorites. The leather pant is fantastic, and so is the colourful fringy scarf...

Bruuns Bazaar

Bruuns Bazaar is obviously a lot more commercial and wearable for a broader audience than the other shows I went to during CFW, but that doesn´t mean I didn´t like it, the last nude silk pieces that came down the runway was truly exquisite. And, doesn´t the sandals remind you of the Sonia Rykiel for H&M ones?

Mulberry/Costume party

Day two in Copenhagen was very very wet.. Me and Silje went to a garden party for Mulberry and Costume where we met Celine and Julie and got to see some of the lovely Mulberry items for next summer... I´m still not really a bag lady, but this Alexa is wearing me down...

I was wearing a mens jeans shirt with a vintage belt and bag, Jofama leather pants and Prada shoes.

Margit Brandt

I LOVED the Margit Brandt show! All the pieces by themselves were quite classic and timeless, but the genius styling made the outfits to be sexy and edgy as well. The luxury safari look is right up my alley, but I find it also a little pirate inspired, which I really don´t mind at all... Also loved the hair and headpieces in this show. Both thumbs up!!

My pics were crap so all the images are taken from Copenhagenfashionweek

Lot #29

Every time I am in Copenhagen, I always have to visit the store Lot #29. They are selling brands such as Missoni, Erdem and the fantastic jewelry from Line & Jo. I will show later what I bought...

Spoon Diogo

I liked Spoon Diogo as I did last season. There were sharp edges, it was fast paced and the bright yellow that came out in the end looked really cool and fresh and complimented the all white/grey/black outfits...

Today

A full day of fashion shows, parties, lunching and dining is over... Puh!... Eh.. This is last nights outfit, the dress is from Weekday, the shoes from Roots and the hat is from Malene Birger a few seasons ago.

Copenhagen

I just arrived at Copenhagen for fashion week, and am doing some last minute work before I am going in to town to meet Line L and Silje.

On my way to the airport I picked up Kamille, where I styled the cover and an editorial.

Last weeks shoot

I did a shoot for Kamille last week, with gorgeous model Ida from Heartbreak, the photographer was Oda B and on Make-up/hair was Corinne.

I also did some shopping at the salvation army (Fretex) when I was in my hometown, and came home with these mustard coloured high waisted pants and animal striped blouse. I wore them with sandals from My Favourites.

Body Jewellery from ByMe

This necklace is part of ByMe`s new collection. It can be used both ways, with either the silver ring in front, like in the picture, or behind in the back. I've used this so much this summer, both on top of dresses and tank tops or inside white men's shirts.

SANSOVINO 6

"Creative director Edward Buchanan has collaborated with Silvana Galbusera, the owner SPRAI srl who manufacturers and distributes Sansovino6 since he was the design director of Bottega Veneta 14 years ago. This collaboration is a true testament to their past collaborations, as well as, a mutual appreciation for each others craft and expertise. With very little preparation time Edward has created a collection by recycling yarns and materials from past collections. The collection is a capsule of essential knitwear.

Combined textures, mélanges, ribbing, and over sizing are hallmarks of the collection. Utilitarian detailing in contrast to the lofty shapes gives a contemporary twist to knitwear. Large draped necklines, long soft lengths, and ambiguous shapes that layer with shorter proportions are key. A color palate of neutrals with an emphasis of tones of grey combined with camel, crème, black, military green, navy blue and a touch of rose."

Cannes

I am finally back from an amazing holiday. As mentioned I was not very good friends with the Internet in France. Its crap! But I have so many pictures to share. Here are some pictures from a shopping spree to Cannes. Wearing top;  Zara, Cut-offs; Levi´s, shoes; Chloe and bag; Chanel

Dream boots!

I came these ultimate boots when I was styling last week. They are way too expensive, but my inner voice screams.

My precious....! The leather is like velvet and I mean it when I say this is the only thing I need this season.

They are from Isabel Marant, in case you wondered..
