INTERIOR // October 20th 2014

So I went to Paris for fashion week, meet up with some cool cats (Adenorah, Laberiane, Maiken and Pernille) for work-related matters, had lots of wine and great food and really planned how I would go to Chanel and finally bring home the Chanel sneakers I've been craving so long - only to find out they were sold out (I better find you in L.A!!). Therefore all I brought back home was The Eiffel Tower - or actually two. One really touristy version and an amazing snow cone from Colette.

 

Så jeg var i Paris under modeugen, mødte en masse cool cats (Adenorah, Laberiane, Maiken and Pernille) i arbejdsøjesmed, drak vin, fik god mad og havde totalt planlagt at shoppe de Chanel sneakers, jeg har cravet dem så længe - for så at finde ud af at de er udsolgt (de har bare at være i LA). SUK. Så alt jeg kom hjem med var Eiffeltårnet - eller faktisk to af dem. En rigtig turistet version og den fineste snekugle fra Colette. Nu pynter de derhjemme.

ISABEL MARANT BRACELET

ACCESSORIES // October 16th 2014

My thoughtful BFF gave my this bracelet from Isabel Marant during Paris Fashion Week. It's given to all guests at the ready-to-wear show and she just know how much I would appriciate it.I feel it has a very L.A.-kind-of-vibe, so it's most definitely coming with me to Los Angeles next week (final countdown: 180 hours for take-off). And speakting of the City of Angeles. Any pointer, things we need to see and do, places to eat?? Any tips are very appriciated.

 

Min søde BFF gav mig dette armbånd fra Isabel Marant under Paris Fashion Week. Alle der deltager i showet får et, og hun vidste jeg ville sætte stor pris på. Det har en helt speciel L.A-følelse over sig og derfor skal  kommer det bestemt også med mig til Los Angeles næste uge (final countdown: 180 timer til takeoff). Og nu vi snakker om the City of Angels. Nogle tips, ting vi skal gøre, steder vi må spise?? Alle ideer er meget velkomne.

SEQUINS BOMBER JACKET

LOOK // October 13th 2014

I got myself my first bomber jacket but quite a glamourous one with lots of beads and embellishments. First I actually wasn't sure I would ever wear it since it's a bit much but I'm a fan and been wearing it all the time since I got it. With a pleated skirt and 70s-shaped boots, jeans and sneakers and a soft yellow dress and boots.

Jeg har fået min første bomberjacket, men den er ganske glamourøs med masser af sten og andet vedhæng. Til at starte med var jeg lidt i tvivl om den fordi den er a bit much, men jeg er fan og har brugt den virkelig meget siden jeg fik den. Både med en pleated nederdel og 70'er støvler, jeans og sneakers, men også en soft gul kjole og høje støvler.

FROSTED GOLD AND LEOPARD ACCESSORIES

ACCESSORIES // October 11th 2014

How fabolous does my new Samsung Galaxy Alpha in frosted gold look with my new leopard scarf and sunglasses from favorite brand FWSS? Once again I was really impressed with the HDR-camera last night when I went to a party at Sunday Club  - a skinny bitch too much and the worst light ever and my pictures still turned out great. Another great feature is its ability to save power, which is essential for a online-junkie like me.

 

Hvor fin er min Samsung Galaxy Alpha i støvet guld lige sammen med mit nye leopard tørklæde og solbriller fra favoritmærket FWSS? Igen blev jeg i går aftes virkelig imponeret over HDR-kameraet, da jeg var til fest på Sunday Club og - på trods af en skinny bitch for meget og det værst tænkelige lys- så endte billederne med at blive virkelig gode. En anden fantastisk feature for en online-junkie som mig, er telefonens evne til at holde på strøm.

NARS LIPS

BEAUTY // October 9th 2014

Tonight is the big Dansk Design Talent and as I'm one of the judges for this year's show I'm really excited about tonight and who will win. I just finished planning my outfit (it'a all about suede, snakeskin and sequins) and I think this great color would be perfect for my lips. It's from Nars Cosmetic, a brand I'm completely mad about (check out my favorites here and here).

 

I aften skal jeg til Dansk Design Talent - Magasin prisen og da jeg igen i år er i dommerkomiteen glæder jeg mig virkelig meget til at se hvem, der løber med prisen og de 500.000 kr. Mit outfit er planlagt (kan I sige palietter, ruskind og slangeskind?). Jeg satser på at denne smukke farve kommer på læberne. Den er fra NARS Cosmetics, et mærke jeg er helt besat af (I kan tjekke to af mine favorit produkter ud her and her).

GOLDEN ACCESSORIES

ACCESSORIES // October 6th 2014

Gold keeps growing on me and recently I've become quite fond of the color. Maybe that's why my wardrobe and accessory collection have experienced such a golden boom recently. From By Malene Birger's gold sequin pencil skirt to Chanel's addictive gold eye shadow to Chloe's new Love Story perfume to the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha (loving the camera in this one) and finally my inherited Ole Mathiesen gold watch.

 

Farven guld vokser virkelig på mig og på det seneste er jeg blevet ret besat. Måske derfor kan jeg også se en betydelig større mængde af guld accessories (og lignende) i min garderobe. Fra By Malene Birgers guld paillet nederdel til Chanels fine guld øjenskygge til Chloe's nye Love Story parfume til den nye Samsung Galaxy Alpha og endelig mit arvede Ole Mathiesen ur.

PEARL EARRINGS

ACCESSORIES // October 6th 2014

Pearls were truly given a modern twist when both Chanel and Dior reinvented grandma's hand-me-down a few seasons back. I personally love the trend (as you know from here and here) and after getting another two piercings a few month ago, I've been looking for the perfect pearl earrings to wear. I finally found them and I've been wearing them ever since.

 

You can find a large selection of pearl earrings on chanti.dk

 

Perler fik virkelig et moderne twist, da både Chanel og Dior genopfundet mormors perler for et par sæsoner siden. Personligt elsker jeg tendensen (som set her og her), og efter at have fået to ekstra piercinger, har jeg været på udkig efter de perfekte perleøreringe til dem. Endelig har jeg fundet dem, og jeg har haft dem på lige siden, jeg fik dem. 

 

Du kan finde et stort udvalg af øreringe på Chanti.dk.

CELINE SUNGLASSES

ACCESSORIES // October 4th 2014

I wear sunglasses year round; summer, winter, darkness or light, it doesn't matter, it's a permant favorite accessory. You all know how much I love my Celiné Audrey and FWSS No. 1 sunnies but now I also added another pair to my favorite selection - the Pretty from Celiné. Such a perfect style name to such a perfect pair of pretty glasses. They are more round than the Audrey and my first black pair. So cool. Now I just want to add either a pair of Rayban (the eternal classics - but to small for me) or a pair of Persols (same issue as before). Here we come Los Angeles, old convertible and Pretty sunglasses.

 

Shop the Celiné Pretty here.

 

Jeg bruger solbriller året rundt; sommer, vinter, i mørke eller lys, det betyder ikke så meget. De er anytime min favorit accessory. I ved alle sammen hvor meget jeg elsker mine par fra både Celiné og FWSS , men nu har jeg altså også tilføjet endnu et par til udvalget - Pretty-versionen fra Celiné. Sådan et fint style navn til at fine solbriller. De er mere rundt end de andre fra Celine og er derudover mit første sorte par. Så seje. Nu mangler jeg bare at tilføje et par fra enten Rayban (evige klassikere, men for små til mig) eller Persols (samme issue som før). Here we come Los Angeles, old convertible and Pretty sunglasses.

ISABEL MARANT DICKER BOOTS

ACCESSORIES // September 28th 2014

I guess you really like a pair of boots when you end up buying a third pair and justify your purchase by telling yourself it's completely alright because it's a different color than the other two pairs. Anyway the Isabel Marant Dicker boot is just a favourite as it goes perfectly with just about anything.

 

Man er åbenbart virkelig begejstret for et par støvler, når man køber et tredje par og retførdiggør købet ved at fortælle dig selv, at det er helt ok fordi, det er en anden farve end de to andre par. Anyway så er Isabel Marant Dicker støvlerne en sand favorit, der passer til alt.

NEOPRENE TOP

LOOK // September 22nd 2014

I've recently added this top in neoprene, the go-to tech-material for surfers, to my wardrobe - although it would be a shame to say I'm a surfer. Neoprene has been a trend for quite some seasons now, but what I like about this top, is that's the material is really thin, which makes it appear less boxy than thicker kinds. It somehow just works better for me.

Jeg har for nylig tilføjet denne neopren top til min garderobe, totalt go-to tech materiale for surfere, men jeg vil nu ikke gå så langt at kalde mig for sådan en. Neopren har været en trend i nogle sæsoner efterhånden, men hvad jeg så godt kan lide ved denne top er, at materialet er langt tyndere end de boxy slags, vi ellers har set. Det fungerer på en eller anden måde bare bedre for mig.

To celebrate the 160th anniversary Louis Vuitton has initiated a project called The Icon and the Iconoclasts: Celebrating Monogram, which invited six of the world’s design pioneers (the iconclasts) to interpret the LV monogram (the icon) for a new series of bags.

 

The six selected designers include Karl Lagerfeld, architect Frank Gehry, performance artist Cindy Sherman, industrial and product designer Marc Newson, shoe designer Christian Louboutin and Comme des Garcons’ Rei Kawakubo. The pictures, which can be seen in the upcoming October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, are shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

BEGLAMMERED CLUTCH BOX

ACCESSORIES // September 7th 2014

You have to agree with me on this! A hard case clutch box has to be a fashion must-have accessory. It really stands out and can brighten up even the dullest of outfits. I can’t wait to carry my party essentials in this BEGLAMMERED clutch box from Norwegian Fall Winter Spring Summer.

 

I er nødt til at være enige med mig i dette! En hard-case clutch box er en total fashion must-have accessory. Den skiller sig ligesom ud fra mængden og kan gøre selv det mest kedelig outfit interessant. Jeg kan slet ikke vente med at smide mine fest-essentials i min nye BEGLAMMERED clutch box fra norske Fall Winter Spring Summer.

If you're still not convinced that leather pants are appropiate for everyday use, I suggest you just wear them with a oversize, lightweight knit - at least it's one of my favorite combinations.

Hvis du stadig ikke er overbevist om at læderbukser er passende til hverdagsbrug, så foreslår jeg, at du bruger dem med en oversize strik. Det er ihvertfald en af mine yndlingskombinationer.

CHANEL VITALUMIÉRE LOOSE POWDER FOUNDATION

BEAUTY // September 4th 2014

Adding this little wonder to my beauty essentials. Easy to apply and gives me a more even complexion. And it even protects my skin as it contains SPF15. Perfect for the upcoming cold season where I'm normally rather lazy when it comes to the sun screen.

 

Chanel Vitalumiére Loose Powder Foundation.

 

Tilføjer straks dette lille vidunder til mine beauty essentials. Let at bruge og giver mig en mere jævn teint. Og så beskytter den endda min hud med SPF15 beskyttelse, hvilket er helt perfekt fordi jeg normalt er lidt doven på det område i den kolde sæson.

MY ROCKING LEATHER SHORTS

LOOK // September 3rd 2014

Let's just move past the chat about how much I love leather. I guess we already kind of established that. So let me go straight to the point of this post: MY NEW ROCKING LEATHER SHORTS. How amazing are they? I've been looking for this exact shape and length for such a long time but didn't manage to find them until I came across this pair from FWSS. I wish I could have worn them all summer, too late, but that's not going to stop from wearing them all winter with a pair of tights and a cosy knit.

 

What I'm Wearing: FWSS leather shorts, IRO boots, By Malene Birger knit.

Lad os bare blive enige om, at vi allerede har fundet ud af, at jeg er tosset med læder, og straks bevæge os idere til hele pointen med denne post: mine nye fantastiske lædershorts fra FWSS. Hvor lækre er de ikke lige? Jeg har så længe ledt efter et par i netop denne længde og model, men det har været helt umuligt - indtil nu. Jeg ville ønske, jeg kunne have brugt dem hele sommeren, for sent, men heldigvis har jeg tænkte mig at hoppe i dem i den koldere sæson med et par tights og en hyggelig strik.

LEOPARD KNIT

LOOK // August 26th 2014

One thing I have an overload of in my wardrobe is undoubtly knits (and perhaps leather jackets). What do I keep buying? Knits? Apparently my subconsciousness is telling me it's going to be a very cold winter. Currently I'm mixing up my one obsession (knit) with another crazy obsession - leopard print. But to be frank, I'm quite pleased with my new leopard-printed knit. Grrr.

Er der en ting, min garverobe er proppet med, så er det uden tvivl strik (og ja nok også læderjakker), men hvad bliver jeg alligevel ved med at købe? Strik. Tydeligevis er det min underbevidsthed, der fortæller mig, at det bliver en meget kold vinter. Lige pt. mikser jeg denne ene besættelse med en anden - leopard print. Men helt ærligt, jeg er ret tilfreds med min nye leopard-printede strik. Grrr.

LOOK // August 24th 2014

My favorite wardrobe staple: the leather pants. Most often I wear them with a casual knit or - as here - with a checked shirt. This Etoile Isabel Marant shirt has been in my closet for at least three years and everytime I wear it, I love it a bit more. So easy to wear. The trench coat is from By Malene Birger and is actually a sample as it was never put into product. I was so happy I managed to get a hold of it at a sample sale at work.

En klar garderobefavorit er uden tvivl mine læder leggings. Oftest bruger jeg dem sammen med en casual strik eller - som her - med en ternet skjorte. Den her er fra Etoile Isabel Marant og har været i mit skab i mindst tre år. Den er så let at bruge og hver gang jeg har den på, elsker jeg den lidt mere. Trenchcoaten er fra By Malene Birger og er faktisk en prøve, da den aldrig blev sat i produktion. Det var love at first sight da jeg så den til show, så jeg kæmpe for at den skulle blive min - hvilket den heldigvis gjorde.

SUMMER, YET FALL

LOOK // August 19th 2014

As I told you, I'm truly in between seasons. I just can't let go of that sun. Fortunately there is almost only two month until I'm headed for Los Angeles for a well-deserved vacation (wow, two month - need to up that running). Until then I probably have to give up - I must admit, bare legs - despite the heavy knit and coat - was killing it (aka. me) a bit. I'm still very much into the Adidas Stan Smith. I'm currently contemplating getting them in red as well. My coat is from Baum und Pferdgarten and the perfect cover-up for in-between seasons. I'm imagining entering Fall wearing it with one of my leather jackets.

 

What I'm Wearing: Adidas Stan Smith, Baum und Pferdgarten coat, By Malene Birger knit.

Som fortalt er jeg ret meget mellem sæsoner pt. dig. Eller egentlig så har jeg bare ikke lyst til at give slip på solen. Heldigvis er der næsten kun to måneder til jeg tager til Los Angelesvelfortjent ferie (hold da op, 2 måneder alligevel - mere løb på programmet). Indtil da er jeg vist nødt til at opgive de bare ben, da kulden - på trods af strik og jakke - næsten slog mig ihjel. Jeg er stadig helt på mine Stan Smith, og overvejer faktisk også et par i røde. Jakke, der er fra Baum und Pferdgarten, er den perfekte cover-up og bliver perfekt over en læderjakke, når det bliver (endnu) koldere.

FLORAL AND PLEATS

FASHION // August 18th 2014

I'm in between seasons currently. I can't quite let go of summer (hence the bare legs and cropped top) but I'm also longing for those winter knits and boots. I really like the mix of the midi length combined with the 70s shaped boots. Not the last time you'll see me wear this.

 

What I'm wearing: Reiss pleated midi skirt, By Malene Birger floral top, By Malene Birger boots.

Jeg er ret meget mellem sæsoner lige nu. Jeg kan ikke helt nænne at slippe sommeren (bare ben og cropped top), men jeg længes også efter strik og støvler.

THE BAND

LIFE // July 24th 2014

While in the mist of a serious white wine haze, Wild Child (you may know her as Maiken) and I decided to form a band. I mean we were on Roskilde Festival and we did look like proper rock stars, so why not. Maiken called my look Kurt-Cobain-meets-Kate-Moss which is hillarious - anyway I was quickly nicknamed Gary (there are some serious brownie point to the ones who know why) and our band was a reality. Therefore meet Wild Child and Gary. Now we just need to start working on some materiale but that is just practicalities - Orange Stage is just around the corner. We had so much fun, that we even went for another band picture on day 2. Check out my instagram to see it (here).

Midt i en voldsom hvidvinståge besluttede Wild Child (du kender hende nok som Maiken) og jeg selv at starte et band. Jeg mener, vi var på Roskilde Festival og vi lignede totalt rock stars, så hvorfor ikke. Maiken mente mit look var en blanding af Kurt-Cobain-møder-Kate-Moss, hvilket er alt for sjovt - anyway jeg fik hurtigt kælenavnet Gary (der er nogle seriøse point til dem, der kan gætte hvorfor) og vores band var en realitet. Nu er vi vist nødt til at starte med at abejde på noget materiale, men det er jo bare praktikaliteter - Orange Scene er så meget lige om hjørnet. Vi havde det så sjovt med det, at vi besluttede at gå efter endnu et band billede dag 2. I kan se det på min Instagram her.

M2 BEAUTÉ LASH AND BROW (WIN)

COMPETITION // July 10th 2014

A few months back I tried on lash extensions for the very first time and even though I loved it (review coming soon), I definitely feel like my lashes have taken a toll. Therefore I decided to give the M2 Lashes Eyelash Activating Serum a try - and at the same time also go for those full brows with the M2 Brows Eyebrow Renewing Serum - and even though I'm not that far in the "treatment" yet, I'm definitely hopefull since I've seen the results on others. But I thought I'd also give one of my readers the chance to get long luscious lashes and full-Cara-Delevingne-brows, so here is your chance to win the wonder-sticks. All you have to do, is go follow me on BLOGLOVIN and write a comment in the comment field below. While you are at it, you should also follow on FACEBOOK, TWITTER and INSTAGRAM. The competition ends on Friday the 18th at 8pm. Winner will be contacted via e-mail.

For nogle måneder siden forsøgte jeg med med eyelash extenstions for første gang, og selvom jeg har haft optur over længere og lækre vipper (anmeldelse følger), så føler jeg også mine vipper har taget en smule skade. Derfor besluttede jeg mig for at afprøve M2's Lashes Eyelash Activating Serum - og samtidig også forsøge mig med fyldigere bryn med M2 'sBrows Eyebrow Renewing Serum.

ROSE TIMES THREE

FASHION // July 9th 2014

Wearing my new favourite two-piece-"suit", the rose Custommade blazer and matching shorts. Such a wardrobe favorite already. I've been wearing it all the time ever since I got it and it's definitely not the last time it will appear on thestylecavalry.com. Combined it with a rose silktop (wish obviously needs to meet mr. steamer) making the outfit very cute - but I like it.

Iført mit nye rosa yndlingssæt fra Custommade. Allerede en kæmpe garderobe favorite, som jeg har brugt vanvittigt meget siden jeg fik det. Kombinerede det her med en rosa silketop (der tydeligvis har brug for et strygejern), der gjorde outfittet utrolig sødt, men jeg er vild med det.

TWO NEW PIERCINGS

BEAUTY // July 7th 2014

Got myself another two piercings - and somehow it's an addiction because I'm already planning more. Wearing my new Lola's Love earring, it's such a hit.

DAY #3

FASHION // July 6th 2014

Too little sleep, too much alcohol, I definitly brought on the puffy face myself. So I opted for a-hair-in-my-face-kind-of-look yesterday mixing that girly Nué Notes broderie anglais top with some BLK DNM leather. Roskilde Festival really rocked big time this year but all good things come to an end and I'm staying in Copenhagen today, meeting up with two lovely chicks for brunch. Tomorrow it's back to work. The next couple of weeks are going to be hectic - Copenhagen Fashion Week and show time coming up. 

 

Alt for lidt søvn. Alt for meget alkohol. Jeg er bestemt ikke uden skyld i mit hævede ansigt. Derfor valgte jeg - som I kan se - i går et hår-i-ansigtet-look - kombineret med en girly broderie anglais Nué Notes top og BLK DNM læder. Roskilde har virkelig været optur, men alle gode ting kommer til en ende, og i dag bliver jeg i København. Første punkt på programmet er brunch med to af damerne fra topbaren. I morgen er jeg retur på arbejde. De næste uger bliver yderst hektiske - Købehavns modeuge og show er lige om hjørnet.

DAY #2

FASHION // July 5th 2014

Another day af Roskilde Festival is officially over and my body is definitely feeling drained but I'm stepping up and getting the party started to Psyched Up Janis at Orange Stage later on. Yesterday was all about Haim and Damon Albarn. For the second day on those Roskilde fields, I was wearing a pair of loose leather pants combined with a silk top and of course my favorite Céline sunnies.

 

Endnu en dag på Roskilde Festival er officielt slut og min krop er helt færdig, men det er intet at gøre end at tage sig sammen, og for mig og min partner-in-crime starter festen med Psyched Up Janis på Orange Scene. I går var jeg hoppet i et par løse læderbukser, en hvid silketop og selvfølgelig mine favorit-solbriller fra Céline.

DAY #1

July 4th 2014

First day of Roskilde Festival was a blast, I spend some quality time with a few favorites, started a band (already did the band picture) while at the same time also making sure to snap some picture of those fashionable girls in the media area (much more to come). The weather was schizophrenic, one moment so cold and windy, the next too warm. I made sure to put on lots of layers - to keep warm - and then again cold.

 

BMB shirt, jacket (previous collection) and leather pants, Adidas Stan Smith shoes and Céline bag.

 

Første dag på Roskilde var for sjov. Jeg tilbragte tid med nogle klare favoritter, stiftede et band (vi har allerede verdens sejeste bandbillede) og snappede billeder af smukke piger i mediebyen (meget mere senere). Vejret var skizofrent, det ene øjeblik koldt, det næste alt for varmt. Derfor masser af lag-på-lag.

NUÉCPH LOVES STYLE

FASHION // July 1st 2014

Broderie Anglais has long been a true staple in my eyes and when Nué asked me to wear this outfit for a shoot highlighting their Spring Summer 2014 collection, I immediately agreed. I decided to wear it with a pair of espadrilles to make it less girly - and then of course the No. 21 bag I've been crushing on for while. The skirt works great with a grey knit  - the perfect choice for those chilly summer nights a head of us (Roskilde Festival I'm looking at you). Still haven't worn the top but I'm imagining it will look cool with a pair of leather leggings and my beloved Isabel Marant Dicker boots. Make sure you also check out Frede and Tikkie to see how they styled their favorites from the collection.

 

Fortunately this also involves you as you can win a gift certificate to Nué's webstore. All you have to do is sign up to their newsletter (right here). If you already signed up, no problem, you still participate in the competition. Go, go, go....

 

Broderie Anglais har længe været en klassiker i min garderobe, så da Nué spurgte om jeg ville hoppe i netop dette outfit til et shoot, der sætter fokus på deres sommerkollektion, sagde jeg straks ja. Jeg brugte sættet sammen med et par espadrillers, der gjorde looket mindre piget og en No. 21 taske, som jeg længe har været lidt forelsket i. Nederdelen fungerer også perfekt med en grå strik - det perfekte valg til de kølige sommeraftener, vi går i møde (Roskilde, jeg kigger på dig). Mangler endnu at bruge toppen, men tænker, at style den med sorte læderleggings og mine elskede Isabel Marant Dicker støvler. Husk for øvrigt også at tjekke Frede og Tikkie og deres fine Nué favoritter.

 

Heldigvis handler det her ikke kun om mig, du kan nemlig vinde et gavekort til Nué's webshop. Alt du skal gøre er, at signe op til deres nyhedsbred (lige her). Og hvis du allerede modtager det, så er det intet problem. Du deltager allerede i lodtrækningen. Go, go, go...

FLOATY DREAMS

FASHION // June 30th 2014

I'm loving my new longsleeved maxi dress from Ganni. Who would ever have imagined me in this long a floaty dress, not myself actually. Nonetheless this is exactly what I'm wearing. It's so comfortable and perfect for both day and night. For day I prefer it with a pair of sneakers. In this case my Adidas Stan Smith.

Jeg er ret vild med min nye langærmede maxi-kjole fra Ganni. Hvem havde troet de skulle se mig i en lang, meget mcdreamy kjole? Ikke mig selv faktisk. Ikke desto mindre, så er det præcis hvad jeg har på. Den er vildt behagelig og perfekt til både dag og nat. Til dagsbrug fortrækker jeg den med et par sneakers. I dette tilfælde min Stan Smith fra Adidas.

#WHATBEAUTYFEELSLIKE

BEAUTY // June 30th 2014

So Veet put me up to the challenge to tell you guys what #beautyfeelslike. Frede and Sidsel already gave you their versions - here comes mine. It's no deep and dark secret. It's actually pretty straight forward. For me beauty is truly all about being happy (although I'm very grateful for concealer, mascara and Veet's products). Seriously I'm I not right? Keep an eye out for my instagram this coming week. I'll show you what makes me happy - and it also involves a price for you guys.

 

Så Veet gav mig en udfordring .. jeg skulle fortælle mine læsere om hvad "beautyfeelslike. Frede og Sidsel har allerede fortalt - og nu er det altså min tur. Egentlig er det ingen mørk eller dyb hemmelighed. Det er faktisk ganske straight forward. For mig handler skønhed egentlig mest om at være glad (selvom jeg takker de højere magter for concealer, mascara og Veets produkter).Men seriøst har jeg ikke ret? I den kommende uge kan I på min instagram følge med i hvad der gør mig glad. Derudover har I også mulighed for at vinde spændende sager.

I have a thing for anything lace, so I knew I just had to get my hands on this jacket in the most beautiful color. I'm going to wear it all summer - probably starting with Roskilde Festival next week. The weather better be great.

Jeg har noget for blonder og var heller ikke i tvivl om at jeg måtte eje denne blondejakke i den smukkeste farve, da jeg så den første gang for nogle måneder siden. Jeg tænker, jeg kommer til at bruge den vældig meget hele sommeren - også på Roskilde i næste uge. Vejret må altså gerne forbedre sig kraftigt.

Addicted much? .... At least I'm fulfilling my 2014 resolutions. My favorites must be the Multi-Vitamin Facial Mask, the Mud Mask Mineral Rich and the Aroma Theraphy Body Lotion (and this smells HEAVENLY).

 

Besat spørger du mig måske? Jo, det er ikke umuligt. I det mindste opfylder jeg mine 2014 forsætter. Mine favoritter er helt sikkert Multi-Vitamin Facial Mask, the Mud Mask Mineral Rich og the Aroma Theraphy Body Lotion (der dufter himmelsk).

DARK WALLS

INTERIOR // June 24th 2014

I used to be an-all-white-walls-kind-of-girl but currently I've been dreaming about dark walls in my bedroom. I always find it so hard to decorate this exact room, it never turns out as I imagined. Now I'm thinking grey walls (and a Gubi mirror) might be the answer.

 

Engang var jeg udelukkende til hvide vægge, men but det seneste er jeg begyndt at drømme om mørke vægge i mit soveværelse. Jeg synes altid, det er det sværeste rum at indrette, det ender aldrig helt ud som jeg havde forestillet. Men nu tænker jeg faktisk, at grå vægge (og et Gubi spejl) muligvis er løsningen.

INTERIOR // June 17th 2014

I love old French glas displays like these. They are next to impossible to find and always crazy expensive but they add such a nice personal touch to your apartment. I often change what I display but currently it's my inherited Royal Copenhagen porcelain figures. Somehow not at all my style but I love them to death anyway. How cute is that bear?? If you have more dash then cash go for Broste Copenhagen's much cheaper version.

 

Jeg elsker gamle franske glaskupler som disse. De er temmelig svære at finde og altid hæsligt dyre, men de giver et super fint personligt touch til din lejlighed. Jeg udskifter ofte hvad jeg har i dem, men for tiden passer de på mine arvede porcelænsfigurer fra Royal Copenhagen. På en eller måde slet ikke min stil, men jeg er vild med dem alligevel. Jeg mener, hvor sød er den isbjørn ikke? Du kan finde en væstenlig billigere version af kuplerne hos Broste Copenhagen.

EMBELLISHED SHIRT

FASHION // June 16th 2014

In matter of style there will always be the champions of simplicity and the champions of excess. Some will argue that there is no magic middle way - but I will dare to argue. Just take a look a this shirt. Simple in it's form and shape, but a full on mix of checks and embellishments. I'm really starting to like this maximalism-trend - which I'm actually doubting is nor but a trend. I really feel like it could be a mainstay on the catwalk for seasons to come.

 

By Malene Birger Alfreddah embellished shirt

 

Når der kommer til stil, så er der dem, der er eksperter i at holde det enkelt og klassisk, hvorimod andre er maximalismens mestre. Nogle vil påstå, at der ikke findes en gylden mellemvej, men jeg er ikke enig. Tag nu for eksempel den her skjorte. Enkel i dens form, men et full-on mix af tern og sten. Jeg er for øvrigt blevet ganske vild med maximalisme-trenden, som jeg dog tror er på vej til at blive alt andet end en trend, men derimod totalt mainstay på catwalken.

When you don't have the real thing, this is an alright substitute - for now. Get it here).

THE SUITCASE

FASHION // June 10th 2014

I found the perfect suitcase for the overhead luggage lockers on the plane. I really wanted one that would fit (and had easy access) to my MAC, while also having lots of room - oh and also had spinning wheels, which I find much easier to handle. If you are searching for the same, look no further - I found you the perfect example from Adax.

 

Jeg har endelig fundet den perfekte kuffert til at tage med ombord på flyet. Jeg har ledt efter en, hvor jeg har let adgang til min MAC (og som beskytter den), en med masser af plads og endelig med roterende hjul, da det er meget lettere at håndtere. Hvis du er på jagt efter det samme, så kan du godt indstille jagten, jeg har fundet den perfekte fra Adax.

TRINE'S WARDROBE BEAUTY

BEAUTY // June 8th 2014

Can't wait to try on Trine's new beauty products. All eight products are really, really, really reasonably prices (from 79,00 to 139,00 DKK) but still without parabens and 7 of the 8 are also without perfume which is definitely a unique selling point if you ask me. And then - you guys know me - they are just really pastel pretty. Out now.

Jeg glæder mig til at teste Trines nye skønhedsprodukter. Alle otte produkter har rigtig, rigtig gode priser samtidig med at de er uden parabener og 7 af de otte produkter er også uden parfume.

KONJAC SPONGE

BEAUTY // May 30th 2014

I’m addicted to cleansing my skin. I didn’t use to but after reading somewhere that your skin age 28 days for each time you go to bed with a dirty face, I completely changed my habits. I switch between a few different cleansers, mostly foams from Tromborg, Rudolph Care and Beauté Pacifique and I always – ALWAYS - use my Clarisonic. But after reading an article about it I’ve decided to start only using it at night which left me in a hassle (I’m addicted to a thorough cleanse) so I decided to give the konjac sponge a try and I must say, it’s a great (morning) alternative to the Clarisonic. The sponge is made out of a starchy root called the konjac and has been an exfoliating mainstay in Asia for years. Apparently you don’t even have to use a cleanser but foam-addicted as I am, I’m keeping it in the equation. The result? I’m definitely feeling more of a glow – and it’s undoubtedly gentler than the Clarisonic. So the konjac is staying for my morning cleansing rituals and I’ll keep washing a whole day’s of makeup and dirt of my face with the Clarisonic.  

 

Get your own konjac sponge at your local pharmacy or online right here.

NUDES FOR ELLE STYLE AWARD

LOOK // May 20th 2014

Here is my full look from yesterday's ELLE Style Award (you might have seen the sneak peek at my instagram @thestylecavalry) . I was wearing (almost) all By Malene Birger from the upcoming pre-Autum collection, which will hit stores next week. Someone told me I looked a bit like one of Tolkien's elves due to my fairy-like skin and the colors of my outfit. Too funny but I decided to take it as a compliment (Orlando Bloom here I come). It's was a great night and I loved seeing my fellow Bisou-girls all dressed up.

Jeg blev fortalt, at jeg lignede en af Tolkien's elver pga. min blege teint og mit outfits farver. Alt for sjovt, men jeg vælger, at tage det som et kompliment (Orlando Bloom here I come). Det var en super fin aften og jeg elskede, at se mine Bisou-piger all dressed up.

THE ETERNAL CLASSIC: THE LEATHER JACKET

LOOK // May 9th 2014

If I had to select one - and just one - item I couldn't do without then I would have to say my leather jacket(s). I have five in different styles (you can see a peek of them here) and I wear them all the time. I couldn't resist trying on this cool embossed version from By Malene Birger's AW14 collection - a true stable. So if you are looking for an eternal classic, go find yourself that dreamy leather jacket. Mine is still this one.

 

Hvis jeg skulle vælge et - og kun et item, jeg ikke kunne undvære i min garderobe, så ville jeg uden tvivl sige mine læderjakker. Jeg har fem forskellige, alle i mere eller mindre forskellige styles. Den næste der flytter ind - desværre først til august - er den her sag fra By Malene Birgers AW14 kollektion. Jeg glæder mig, en sand klassisker. Så hvis du leder efter en evig klassiker, så vil jeg anbefale at finde netop den læderjakke, der passer dig og investere i den. Min drømme læderjakke er stadig den her.

I'm loving those classic stripes at the moment. I mean, when are they ever not fabulous? As you can see I went all in and combined my jacket with a matching bag. And then I rekindle my love for my oversize, baggy leather pants. I'm wearing them all the time. Maybe I should wear them tonight for the Bisou-party at Condesa. We are celebrating another member in the Bisou-family. High five and welcome, Sidsel. You guys are also invited. Check out the party here.

ROSE HUES

BEAUTY // May 7th 2014

I'm in a rose-hues-kind-of-mood. Fortunately some of my favorite beauty products fit this perfectly. Treat yourself and do this: Start with the Rudolph Care Acai Body Scrub and Acai Facial Scrub Mask and continue the treat by applying SARD Kopenhagen Argan oil on your body and face. Let it dry and apply a little Tromborg blush to your cheeks and you're ready to go. Often this is my whole beauty routine before going to work - I promise, you look both fresh and glowing. The SARD Kopenhagen Argan Oil is also amazing underneath your foundation. I'm obsessed and completely recommend it.

 

Jeg er i et rosa-humør og heldigvis passer nogle af mine yndlingsskønhedsprodukter perfekt til det. Forkæl dig selv og start med at skrubbe krop og ansigt med Rudolph Care Acai Body Scrub og Acai Facial Scrub Mask og fortsæt med at smøre krop og ansigt ind i SARD Kopenhagen Argan oil. Endelig putter du lidt Tromborg blush på kinderne og du er klar. Ofte er dette udelukkede min skønhedsrutine inden arbejde - jeg synes, det giver en måde frisk og glødende look. SARD Kopenhagen argan oilen er også ret så fantastisk under din foundation. Jeg er helt afhængig af den.

SEQUINS KIMONO

LOOK // May 4th 2014

Just about everyone can pull off a kimono - that’s what’s so great about it. The key is not going to far with the whole theme and therefore always making sure to combine it with items that are much more contemporary – in this case a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and a matching leather top.

 

Ganni is making some great kimonos right now. Besides this one, you can also get a longer version – as well as one in black.

 

WEARING Current Elliot boyfriend jeans (similar here), By Malene Birger heels, Cos leather top (similar here) and Ganni kimono.

 

Stort set alle kan bære en kimono, det er netop hvad der er så fantastisk ved den. Det vigtigste er dog ikke at gå for langt med temaet og derfor sørge for altid at kombinere med items, der er mere moderne – i mit tilfælde et par ripped boyfriend jeans og en matchende lædertop.

 

Ganni laver de fineste af slagsen lige nu. Udover denne, så kan du også få den i en længere version, ligesom den også kommer i sort.

YOU CAN'T MIX NAVY AND BLACK

LOOK // May 3rd 2014

Funny how come mixing blue and black have been such a fashion no-go. I am sooo in to navy at the moment and I really think it’s the new black. All you have to remember when mixing is to ensure that your mix appears to be an intentional style decision and that the blue is light enough to not be mistaken for black. Another great tips is to go for different materials – so that’s what I did.

 

By the way – LOVING my new shoes. Yes, you saw right. It’s the navy Stan Smith that I’ve been desperately lusting for the last two month. Frede helped me get a hold of them – thank you, sweety.

 

Check out first parts of the series Fashion Rules that No Longer Apply

 

Rule 1 You can't mix prints here

Rule 2 Sequin is only for after-hour wear here

 

Jeg forstår faktisk ikke helt hvorfor det har været sådan et fashion no-go at mikes sort og blå. Jeg er totalt vild med farven og synes så meget at navy er den nye sorte. Alt hvad du skal huske, når du mikser farverne er, at sørge for at det er en bevidst beslutning  og altså gå efter en blå, der ikke kan forveksles med sort. Et andet tip er, at gå efter forskellige materialer.

 

Og for øvrigt….. ELSKER mine nye sko. Og ja, helt korrekt, det er de navy Stan Smith, som jeg har søgt efter de sidste par måneder. Frede hjalp mig med at få fat i dem. Tak smukke.

SEQUIN IS ONLY FOR AFTER-HOUR WEAR

LOOK // April 30th 2014

Continuing my series of fashion rules that no longer apply, here is number 2.

 

Rule 2:
Sequin is only for after-hour wear.

Normally you would probably only wear sequins when going out and really trying to dress up but you actually don't have to anymore. There is something so cool about pairing the glittery material with a more casual items, such as a pair of jeans or - my favorite - the oversize knit. 

 

Check out first part of the series Fashion Rules that No Longer Apply: You can't mix prints right here.

 

Regel 2:
Pailletter er kun til fest

Normalt ville du sandsynligvis kun hoppe i pailletter, når du skal ud og virkelig skal dresses op, men det behøver du faktisk ikke mere. Der er noget meget cool over de glitrende pailletter kombineret med enten jeans – eller min personlige favorit – en oversize strik.

YOU CAN'T MIX PATTERNS

LOOK // April 27th 2014

What's so amazing about fashion is, that it constantly evolves and changes. What was not allowed a few years back, is suddenly one of the biggest trend of a season. I had a look at nine trends, that use to be a no-go, but certainly is back (to stay?). Take a look at the first one here.

 

Rule 1

You can't mix patterns Mixing prints and patterns are both bold and very much in style – plus mixing allows you to create outfits you probably never would have imagined looking good together. It somehow turns into a very intentional unintentional look, all so very fashionable.

 

Hvad jeg elsker ved mode er, at den er i konstant udvikling og trends og tendenser hele tiden ændrer sig. Hvad der var helt forbudt for nogle år siden, er pludselig en af sæsonens hotteste tendenser. Jeg har kigget lidt på 9 moderegler, der tidligere har været et totalt no-go, men nu er tilbage – og måske for at blive. Den først kommer her.

SATURN GOLD/SILVER RING

ACCESSORIES // April 22nd 2014

What a beauty! The gold/silver Saturn ring designed by Charlotte Mielko has been on my mind for a very, very long time. I first came across it when I had coffee with Marianne some years back and ever since I haven't been able to get it off my mind. So classic, yet so contemporary.

 

Simpelthen så pæn. Den guld/sølv Saturn ring designet af Charlotte Mielko har været i mine tanker i utrolig lang tid. Jeg stødte første gang på den, da jeg mødtes med Marianne til kaffe for nogle år siden og siden har jeg ikke rigtig kunne glemme den. Så klassiske, men alligevel så moderne.

SCENTS

BEAUTY // April 18th 2014

I'm currently switching between these two scents. Diptyque's L'eau, which has a spicy freshness and Tromborg's Rose, which is sweet but subtle. You should seriously give both a go. I always receive complements when wearing them.

 

Lige for tiden skifter jeg mellem de her to parfumer. Diptyque's L'eau, der har en spicy friskhed and Tromborg's Rose, der er sød, men på en diskret måde. Du skal virkelig overveje at prøce dem. Jeg får altid komplementer, når jeg har dem på.

WELLBEING RUNNING

BEAUTY // April 15th 2014

So recently I started running. Previously I use to do it a lot but in the recent years I’ve primarily been going to the gym. But after getting a dog and having a fulltime job, I just finder it harder and harder to spare those extra hours for the gym. And therefore I felt like running was the right exercise to go for – especially since I most often can run home from work. But I didn’t know how to get started - fortunately running coach ANNE HVIID (she's is freaking cool - check out her Instagram, username below) was there to help – and now I signed up for Copenhagen's Women's Race in June. Fortunately the great Anne is here for you too. Here are her tips and pointers for getting those legs going.

 

How do I start? To get the best start, I think you should set up a goal. The goal can be a specific race, a faster time or just to get out and run 2-3 times weekly. And then of course a training program that commits.

 

How often and how long should I run?Be careful in the beginning. The risks of injuries are high if you push your body too much. The body must be built to run. 2-4 times a week, depending on whether you are a new or a more experienced runner.

 

How do I keep myself motivated?Specific goals are always motivational. Meeting up in a running club and sharing your experience with others is always a good idea. Or signing up for a race is always a way to keep you going.  

 

How do I beat the boredom? Socialize on the run or listen to your favourite music. I've even heard of some who like to listen to books while they run.

 

Is it better to run in the morning or at night? You should definitely test and figure out what works for you. Some feel most comfortable running in the morning, while others have the best feeling at night. So figure it and fit it into your everyday life.

 

 Is it better to run alone or with others? It varies. I like to run with others. Because of the social element and that you are able to push yourself even further while running with others.

 

Can I lose weight? Yes, but it often requires more than just running. If you combine it with a healthy lifestyle, then you can easily lose weight. Running is a very effective way to burn calories. When you activate the major muscle groups of the body, you use loads of energy.

 

Is it enough to run – or should I lift some weights too?
Lifting weights are always a good idea as it makes the body more responsive to running. Do it a couple of times weekly.

 

Any greats run I should participate in this summer?There are loads of great races in Copenhagen, but if you want to try a 10k run, the Copenhagen 10 K Women's Run on June 15th is a must. It’s so much fun.

 

Five essentials for running?
Running watchrunning shoes, clothesrunning arm band and fish oil.

& OTHER STORIES BODY SCRUB

BEAUTY // April 14th 2014

Hands down one of the best body scrubs I ever tried. Why you might ask? I simply love the almost whipped-cream-like-texture that really polishes the skin but in a delicate way. Also it leaves your skin with the most amazing scent of tiger orchid and lotus flower. Yours for only 9 euros. Such a bargain.

 

Buy the Punk Bouquet Body Scrub from & Other Stories here.

 

Helt ærligt en af de bedste body scrubs jeg nogensinde har prøvet. Hvorfor spørger du så nu? Jamen, fordi den har en næsten flødeskumslignende tekstur, der virkelig skrubber huden på en meget forsigtig måde plus den efterlader din hud med den mest fantastiske duft af orkide og lotusblomst. Og så koster den kun 75 kr.

INTERIOR // April 12th 2014

My new Lampe Gras N214 designed in 1922 by Bernard-Albin Gras. I'm in love with the functional esthetic. So cool. I bought it in one of my favorite interior shops in Copenhagen, Beau Marche, which is definitely worth a visit. Next purchase for my home is a Maroccan carpet. I got my eyes on this beauty from Kirsten Fribert.

GO BLUE

BEAUTY // April 11th 2014

You definitely need to re-think your (like me) aversion towards blue eye makeup because it’s back and perhaps a stronger look than ever. But don’t completely despair, you have until AW14 to get use to the idea but from there on blue eye-makeup is inevitable. Be inspired by Temperley London (a bright blue flick on the eye), Derek Lam (a subtle blue-gryish smokey-eye) or – my personal favorite – Giles (see more below).

 

 

For the Giles version all you need is just one line of an icy blue eyeliner etched along the entire length of the lower lashes and into the inner corner of the eye – easy peasy – all though I opted for a blue eye shadow from Tromborg instead of the eyeliner. I think it’s much easier to handle for a makeup-accident-waiting-to-happen like me and it's a bit more subtle if you are trying it out for the first time.

 

 

Get the Tromborg ice-blue eye shadow here

 

Du er nok nødt til at komme dig over – hvis du som mig – har en aversion mod blå øjenmakeup. Det er nemlig tilbage og stærkere end nogensinde. Men fortvivl ikke helt, du har indtil AW14 til at vænne dig til looket, men så er det også helt uundgåeligt. Bliv inspireret at Temperley London (en cat-eye-inspireret bue), Derek Lam (en let blå-grå smokey-eye) eller min personlige favorit Giles (se mere nedenfor).

 

For at få det helt rette Giles-look skal du med en blå eyeliner tegne en streg langs de nederste vipper og helt op til den inderste øjenkrog. Easy peasy – jeg valgte dog at benytte en blå øjenskygge fra Tromborg i stedet for en eyeliner. Jeg synes nemlig, den er lettere at styre for en som mig, der mere eller mindre er en makeup-accident-waiting-to-happen og så er det en smule mere diskret, hvis det er et look du lige skal vænne dig til.

MAKEUP BRUSHES

BEAUTY // April 10th 2014

I have so many makeup brushes. I don't really know how I managed to collect that many, especially since I don't really know how to properly use them. Anyway these are my favorites.

 
Bobbi Brown foundation brush, Tromborg powder brush, Tromborg blush brush, Jane Iredale eyeshadow brush and Tromborg Kabuki brush.

 

Jeg har så mange forskellige makeup-pensler, og det sjove er, at jeg ikke helt ved hvad jeg skal bruge dem til. Dog har jeg mine favoritter - som jeg ved hvordan man bruger.

MARBLE PRINT

LOOK // April 10th 2014

Three’s a trend and you definitely don’t question Balenciaga, 3.1 Philip Lim or Peter Som about the legitimacy of marble print on their catwalk. The beautiful swirly motif (which is both eye-catching and bold) is easy to wear – and a great way to embrace the print-trend without feeling to attention seeking. I combined the head-to-toe marble print with a bare midriff, another SS14 trend. That certainly took some self-convincing to leave the house like that.

 

By Malene Birger top and skirt

 

Tre er en trend, og jeg sætter absolut ikke spørgsmålstegn ved hverken Balenciaga, 3.1 Philip Lim eller Peter Soms marmor-print på catwalken. Det smukke snurrede mønster, der både er iøjnefaldende og cool, er en let måde at imødekomme sæsonens print-trend - uden at føle sig alt for opmærksomhedskrævende. Jeg kombinerede mit full-look marmor med en anden af SS14’s største tendenser, det bare maveskind. Det tog noget tid at overbevise mig selv om at forlade huset på den måde, men jeg gjorde det.

CARRY YOUR CLUTCH THE CELINE WAY

ACCESSORIES // April 9th 2014

More bling in my closet (remember the bling bling sandals?). It's outrageous. But as previously argued, bling gives your look an instant update. I'm currently really into carrying my clutch the Céline-way (tucked under my arm, pulled close to my body and wrist - just take a look here). It's so casual with a twist. Just the way I like it. Also make sure you check out my guide on how to wear your bag in the right AW14-catwalk-manner here.

 

By Malene Birger Edika clutch

 

Det er helt uvant, men ja, der er faktisk rykket endnu mere bling ind i mit skab (husker I bling-bling sandalerne?) Anyway fordi jeg ofte går så klassisk klædt, synes jeg faktisk, at al det bling giver mit look en hurtig update. I øjeblikket er jeg helt besat af at bære min taske på Céline-måden (halv-gemt under armen og tæt på krop og håndled – se selv her). Det er afslappet med et twist. Se hvordan du ellers kan bære din taske på den helt rette catwalk-måde her.

SIGNET RINGS

ACCESSORIES // April 7th 2014

I’m really into little fingers rings at the moment and these two are my favorites. I also really like mixing gold and silver. At one point that use to be strictly forbidden fashion wise but these last few seasons it really has been the thing to do. 

 
 

Miss Rayne ring from Line & Jo and The Oval Ring from Rebekka Rebekka available at Band of Jules.

 

 

Jeg er virkelig in to lillefinger-ringe for tiden og disse to er mine favoritter. Derudover er jeg også ret begejstret for at mikse guld og sølv og selvom det har været totalt no-no en overgang, så har  et heldigvis været helt tilladt de sidste par sæsoner.

SUMMER SANDALS

ACCESSORIES // April 6th 2014

I seem to be talking a lot about spring and summer these days but it’s simply because I can’t wait much longer. I even started buying sandals – and actually wore them outside for 30 minutes earlier this week. I can tell you, it wasn’t warm but it was worth it. And this brings me to what this post is actually about: my new sandals, say hi to my new loves: my bling bling sandals. I quite like how they can take an outfit from dull to fab in a matter of seconds. Imagine this: a warm summer day (back to where it all started), beautiful painted nails (preferably in this color), a pair of ripped denim jeans (and yes, you are right, my infatuation is getting ridiculous), a perfectly fitted tee (I think, I might have found the life-changing version - more on this later), the company of best friends (you know who you are), wine (white all the way) and my new sandals. Sounds like sweet music to my ears. Getting them in both oak and black might have been a "tad" over-doing it but what can a girl do?

 

Jeg synes ikke, jeg snakker om andet en forår og sommer for tiden, men det er vist fordi jeg virkelig længes efter sol, varme og lyse nætter. Måske det også er derfor, jeg er gået amok og købt (to par) nye sandaler – og faktisk havde jeg dem på – udenfor – i 30 min i dag. Det var ikke varmt, men det var det værd. Men tilbage til hvad det her indlæg handler om, mine bling bling sandaler. Hvad jeg godt kan lide ved dem er, at de på få sekunder kan forvandle mit outfit fra kedeligt til festligt – og forestil dig så lige det her: en varm sommerdag (tilbage til hvor det hele startede), smukke farverige negle på fødderne (helst i denne farve), et par hulled jeans (og ja, helt korrekt, min besættelse er ved at blive latterligt), selskab af de bedste venner (I ved selv hvem I er), vin (hvid selvfølgelig) og så sandalerne. Lyder helt perfekt i mine ører. Og igen I har ret - at købe to par, hvor eneste forskel er farven, er muligvis lidt overdrevent, men hvad skulle jeg gøre?

FLORAL

LOOK // April 1st 2014

“Floral? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestly might have been right but still floral print truly is the embodiment of spring and it seems I just might have an on-going love affair with that exact print. Fortunately it’s still very much in-season but then again when was it ever really not? Everyone from Etro to Matthew Williamson, Marni to Dries Van Noten and Stella McCartney to Christian Dior had their very own interpretation of the print, so don’t be afraid – you can do no wrong.

“Floral? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestly har måske ret, men ikke desto mindre er blomsterprint mere eller mindre blevet indbegrebet af forår og jeg har selv efterhånden en hel kærlighedsaffære med netop det print. Heldigvis er det stadig ganske meget i sæson, og alle de store designhuse – fra Etro til Matthew Williamson, Marni til Dries Van Noten og Stella McCartney til Christian Dior har deres egne fortolkning af printet i SS14-kollektionerne. Derfor er det også ganske svært at gøre det forkert.

HOW TO CARRY YOUR BAG THE AW14 WAY

ACCESSORIES // April 1st 2014

The way you hold your bag, can actually affect the outcome of your whole look but figuring out how to carry your bag has bever been harder, especially not for the season to come. AW14 offers a variety of possibilities – from Céline’s tucked-tight-under-your arm to Margiela’s resting-on-the-wrist and Prada’s throw-it-over-your-shoulder. Which version are you going for?

 

1. The Céline Way
Carry your bag, which is worn on the side, close to your body, while casually grasping it with your one hand.

 

2. The Balenciaga Way
Search for 2-3 similar bags that varies in size, color and material and carry them all in one hand.

 

3. The Prada Way
Pull you shoulder bag chain as hard as you can, until the point where the bag tilts almost make it into a one-shoulder backpack.

 

4. The Chanel Way
Go to your local supermarket, pick up a children’s size shopping bag and decorate it with the Chanel-way. 

 

5. The Maison Martin Margiela Way
Secure your clutch by attaching a removable strap to your clothing. Pick a strap that has a clip in each end in order to remove it.

 

Måden hvorpå du holder din taske, kan påvirke udfaldet af hele dit look. Men det bliver svære og sværere, eller ihvertfald bliver mulighederne flere og flere. Specielt i den kommende sæson. AW14 byder nemlig på en række af muligheder. Fra Célines gemt-under-armen til Margielas halvt-hvilende-på-håndleddet til Pradas kast-over-skulder. Hvilken version går du efter?

I can’t get enough of pretty coffee table books and among my favourites is this one: Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs: In association with the Musee Des Arts Decoratifs, Paris. It’s both informative and visually stunning. I especially love flipping through the pages that display the various campaigns since the start of Marc Jacob as head designer. Campaigns that features everyone from all supermodels to Madonna.

AN OLDIE BUT GOODIE

ACCESSORIES // March 30th 2014

Yesterday when I was busy clearing out my closet (flea market season is just around the corner) I came across my old (almost vintage) Proenza Schouler boots. I actually don’t remember which season they are from but I think they are at least 5 years old. I forgot all about them, so that was a nice surprise on a Saturday that was spend with some other - can’t call them oldies – but definitely goodies, Thomas and Maiken.

 

Jeg har i øjeblikket travlt med at rydde ud i mit skab (loppemarkedsæson er lige om hjørnet - og hold øje med min Tictail shop) og i den forbindelse faldt jeg over mine gamle (næsten vintage) Proenza Schouler støvler. Jeg kan faktisk ikke huske hvilken sæson, de er fra, men de ​​må være mindst 5 år gamle. Jeg havde egentlig glemte alt om dem, så det var en dejlig overraskelse en lørdag, der blev tilbragt med et par andre – jeg kan ikke kalde dem oldies – men helt sikker goodies, Thomas og Maiken.

BOXES

ACCESSORIES // March 29th 2014

I always keep the storage boxes from when I buy shoes, bags or jewelry. Obviously because they are so pretty but also because it's a great way to store your stuff - and actually protect your shoes/bags when you don't use them.

Jeg gemmer altid æskerne, der følger med sko, tasker og smykker. Selvfølgelig fordi de er så fine og dekorative, men også fordi det er en god måde at opbevare mine ting på - og rent faktisk beskytter de netop sko/tasker i de perioder, hvor du ikke bruger dem.

WHAT I'M WEARING

March 28th 2014

I fell in love with this Wali Barrech zip-up sweater the very first moment I saw it. The pastel green, the delicate floral print in green, grey and rose, the neoprene and of course the detail with the buttons that enables you to go from a feminine A-shape to a masculine bomber jacket silhouette within minutes.  Just perfect. Next time I’m gonna wear it with jeans but I actually really like this combination as it kind of draws the feminine pencil skirt in a more casual direction.

 

I’m wearing Wali Barrech Idéale Neoprene Sweater available at Muuse.com, By Malene Birger leather skirt, IRO boots and Adax by Carin Wester Aberdeen bag.

 

Det var kærlighed ved allerførste blik, da jeg så denne Wali Barrech-jakke første gang. Den smukkeste pastelgrønne, det skrøbelige print, neoprene-materialet og ikke mindst mulighed for – ved hjælp af knapperne - at gå fra en feminine A-form til en maskulin bomberjacket-silhuet på få minutter. Ganske perfekt. Næste gang vil jeg afprøve den med et par jeans, men jeg kan godt lide at det ladylike pencilskirt bliver mere casual i kombination med jakken.

SAINT LAURENT LEATHER ANKLE BOOTS

ACCESSORIES // March 19th 2014

I've been looking for a pair of black classic ankle boots for a while now and actually thought I would end up with a pair of suede Gianvito Rossi. But that was until I saw and tried on the perfect pair from Saint Laurent in Paris. Quite the heel but - believe it or not - really comfortable (as such a pair can be). I see them working great with both a black leather skirt and a pair of vintage Levis denim jeans. Now I just need to find the €695 for them.

 

Jeg har længe ledt efter det perfekte par sorte, klassiske ankelstøvler og jeg troede faktisk, jeg ville ende med et par i ruskind fra Gianvito Rossi. Det var dog indtil jeg så og prøvede det perfekt par fra Saint Laurent i Paris. Ganske høj hæl, men - tro det eller lad være - helt behagelige alligevel (så behagelige som sådan et par sko nu engang kan være). Jeg forestiller mig, at de passer perfekt til både en sort lædernederdel og et par vintage Levis denim jeans.
