My miu miu


miu miu shoes
gina tricot socks
 
After loosing sleep at night trying to decide what pair of shoes from the miu miu spring collection would make it in to my closet, I think I finally found peace. I was aiming for the ankle boot version but as it sadly never made it in to production, I made my first rational shoe decision. Instead of the satin printed ones I went for black and worn with socks like this I would say: miu miu effect achieved.

Now you can buy the socks in my store!

ashish for topshop shorts
oasis jacket
topshop bumbag
zara boots

Took the train out from the city last weekend and spent a few amazing hours laying in the grass trying to concentrate on drawing instead of falling asleep..  sorry for the not-so interesting ensemble, I just wanted to wear my new bumbag.. which turned out to be very helpful in the case of these ashish for topshop shorts that are quite cool but oh so overly oversized from every angle.

Cut me out


finnish villakivi design cut-out cardigan
cos shirt dress
shoes from italy

Really quite hard to advise you on the stuff I am wearing here.. the cut-out knit was something a very nice lady back in Finland sold to me.. bought it a few years back from an interior design exhibition.. where I did not go to buy clothes, but you know, often you find the best stuff in the most random places.. I love that it's made of felt and even if I take it with me everywhere, I hardly ever end up wearing it. I'm confused.. what is it? a knit, a jacket, or maybe a poncho? I would say just a throw-on. A throw-on that I promise I'll wear more from now on.

Raid my closet

I just remembered that I have not been wearing my chanel tattoos in a while.. and let's face it, they are not gonna stay cool forever.. so I decided to try the swallow one. It's currently my favorite of the pack and thanks to miu miu, I'm all over anything that has something to do with birds.

Go on.. no one is counting


jeffrey campbell clogs

Ups.. Yeah I know.. I have to calm down with buying clogs.. or maybe not.. plus I am totally allowed since I am skandinavian and they could pass as our national shoe.. Anyway here is how the story went.. I was in topshop just strolling around with Tasha, catching up on the new stuff when I remembered a rumor I heard about Jeffrey Campbell shoes being sold at topshop...(?) So I thought I'd ask around... No. No sorry we don't. I am afraid, was the answer I got about 5 times until I made it into the section that sells Office shoes... and here I got my answer. The only ones they had left were these clogs, in my size. They spoke to me and I answered. 

So to you UK people that are interested, Office will be stocking Jeffrey Campbell from now on and they will receive a new batch of these clogs in black & tan in mid May. ( ps. these run small, I had to go up a size)
 
I also have to share the best shoe fitting trick, that I had to use on these. Some of you may have heard of it, works best on leather/suede shoe that feels too tight and rub your feet.. 

1. wear the shoes on bare feet inside your house for a while so you know which part rubs and may cause blisters 
2. buy moleskin tape/ fabric bandaid from the pharmacy and wrap a strip around the sore spot 
3. soak your feet in water then dry them leaving the tape wet 
4. wear your shoes with the wet tape on and the tight parts will mold perfectly to your feet, without stretching the whole shoe.

Tadaaa.

Shortcut


Alexander wang silk cardigan
cos dress
river island boots
random bracelet
Lapponia ring

The best way to find use for ill-fitting jewellery... is to wear them wherever they fit. My bracelet made it up this far. It's been an awesome week and on monday I'll go back to college again.. I am planning a relaxed sunday including some shopping and hummingbird bakery muffins.

It doesn't get dark until 20.11


topshop boutique knit
vintage bum bag
dune boots

This knit reminds me of the Dries van noten mohair jumper that has been featured about everywhere. Topshop did a pretty good job even if it's not as dreamy as the original.. It is quite huge and keeps sliding down my shoulders non-stop... especially dangerous if worn like this. But what the hell, it's almost summer so I'm thinking maybe I can get away with a little spine cleavage...

Monochrome


oasis jacket
pleasure principle dress
cheap monday glasses
american apparel socks
asos backpack
zara clogs
Lapponia & vintage rings

Wearing my lovely Pleasure principle dress that I want to believe will never date. I have been using it way too much and the draping looks different everytime I pull it on... (?) Not sure if it's a bad thing though..

Hope everyone had a nice weekend, spring has arrived! yes?

Things you need in life


Something I picked up before I went for my holiday were these two pairs of topshop clogs and the Margiela perfume. Also thought I'll show you some of my favorite mags.. Apart from the regular Vogue, Elle and trashy weekly, I love: Purple, Grey, Dansk, Pop, Love, i-D, Dazed and confused, Another Magazine... to name a few. London really is the best place to live if you want to read good magazines.

Shades of black


gina tricot jacket
river island cardigan
gina tricot dress
zara bag
balenciaga boots
chanel tattoos


I know I have a million favorite things but these Balenciagas really are my favorite FAVORITE boots ever.. scored them on ebay last year and keep falling in love with them again everytime I walk by my shoe shelf. Ever experienced that kind of love?

As for you sweets asking about the Chanel tattoos- they last for days and are basically harder to take off than to put on. Applied the same way as the ones you used to get in easter eggs & pony mags. Market opportunity here Kinder, maybe you guys should be smart now and bring them back...

Back in business


 american apparel hat
h&m shirt
chloé boots
 clover at bona drag bracelet
labour and wait at dover street market apron

So nice to be back home... after a month of living out from my suitcase. Finally back to my routine, home and closet. I am forcing spring and wearing this Labour and wait apron, that I got from Dover street market, as a skirt. It kind of works I think.

I am doing a very exciting footwear design internship for the next few weeks.. I'll tell you about it later, hope it goes well!

love to you all xx

Aprés ski



So I made it back safely to London after a long day including an extempore trip from Obertauern to north Italy! Bought a pair of shoes and some other stuff.. soothed my worst cravings of being away from the shops for a while.

Here are some shots from both on and off the slopes... Really enjoyed the after ski, filled with a bunch of random people loving their life. My drink of choice was gluwein and jagertee, which clearly made me a better skier.
