paint it black
Bought myself (well, technically my mum bought it for me) something fresh from DAY Birger et Mikkelsen when I was wandering around Copenhagen the other day. Can you guess what? Keywords: black, works with wedges and definitely an essential part of your wardrobe right now if you’re obsessed with fashion.
5preview pt 2
A loooooong time ago I wrote about the brand 5PREVIEW that (at the time) made t-shirts with logos resembling famous brand logos like Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. Wicked cool t-shirts. Well, they’re still going strong, only now the collections include bags, jewelery, etc and is available in stores as well as online. Strolling around Illum in Copenhagen yesterday I stumbled across some of the Ts, and had to buy myself one. Over-sized PREVIEW to be more exact. Long enough to be a short dress, cool and perfect to match with my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Already in love.

Yesterday’s race was .. interesting. I ran about as fast as an 80 year old woman, but finished at nr 23 out of the 40 people in my class. I was quite amazed. Visited the Marc Jacobs outlet, but there was nothing left by the time we got there, so no new stuff. Today might be the day though,we’re going to walk around Copenhagen to visit the theatre, shop and enjoy the city. Hopefully I will add something to my wardrobe. Any shops, restaurants and cafes you can recommend?
marc + orienteering
New T from Marc Jacobs.
Visited Eva @ EGER last Wednesday, to say hi! and chat. Left with this cool Marc Jacobs T, for freeeee. There’s something about free stuff. I LIKE IT. God bless people who spoil bloggers. ;)
I’m currently in Copenhagen, on my way to a Marc by Marc Jacobs outlet sale. Hopefully I’ll find something to like and bully my dad into buying (I’m kidding)(sort of). The reason why I am in Denmark is because I am, once again, joining my family to run orienteering. Because, orienteering is actually quite cool. We’re just hiding the fact, just like a very cool super-secret- Chuck Bass-kind-of-club. So you’re definitely missing out on something.
Yesterday I attended a dinner/party to celebrate that my aunt just finished her PhD. Quite fun indeed. Today I suddenly find myself in another country entirely, Danmark to be more specific. More about that later. I just wanted to tell you I’m alive and well. Now I need to sleep.
I kind of like you guys, btw. Sort of.
I wish for a pair of Noodles come this summer. They’re delicate in color, matches with just about everything and will be perfect when I’m going home to Kristiansand to have a real summer vacation. Yum. Noodles can be bought at ShoeBar, Urban +++.
The good ones die young. Det er så mye jeg burde sagt og gjort. Sett pris på dem du kjenner, og fortell dem det. Uansett om dere ikke er bestevenner. Fortell folk hvor bra de er. Sett pris på folk som sprer glede i hverdagen og fortell dem det. Livct kan være så kort for så mange.
“New” leather jacket. Well, not actually new, I bought it around 5 years ago, but I had sort of forgotten it. It’s from Lulu’s, one of my favorite stores in Kristiansand, and I love the fact that it’s not black, which gives me a feeling of summer and the leather is so soft I want to sleep in it. Like it.
Visited the Stenersen museums latest exhibiton yesterday as well (together with Gustav and Marie), which presents a collection of Norwegian Surrealism at the moment. Disturbing, weird, but oh so fascinating to watch. If you’ve got the time you should take half an hour or so of your time to visit the exhibition. Website here. Some cultural input is important, and this particular input is free. So you’ve got no excuses if you’re in Oslo. After a looooong day of trying to get my head to function enough to finish a paper on Victorian literature, it felt good to get out of the apartment and think about something else.
Like just about everyone else in the fashion/blog world, I too wish for Mulberry’s Alexa bag. The perfect satchel, elegantly chill, relaxed while still chic, and a little rougher then the ordinary Mulberry bags. Most people wish for the small version though, while I crave the larger one. I need space for my camera, day planner, phone, book and everything else I need on a daily basis, and the small one is just too little for my taste. I like them big.
What’s you favourite bag right now?
friends of glass
Camilla Prytz launched her new jewelry collection today, called “Friends of Glass”. I didn’t love the entire collection but the two head pieces above are quite awesome. Well, anyways, dinner’s on the table, got to go. Good night.
Weekday is finally coming to Norway! After Monki opened stores across the country last Fall, we have been awaiting the invasion, and this May the Swedish brand Weekday will open two stores in Norway; one in Oslo (stortorvet) and one in Bergen (starvhusgaten). Weekday sell their own brands MTWTFSS, Store Made and their well-known jeans brand Cheap Monday. They also collaborate with young and creative Scandinavian designers, a list that has included Carin Wester, Stine Goya and Minimarket the last couple of years.
Visit weekdays website here, to see what kind of clothes you can expect to find in the stores.
I’m looking forward to this! Diversity is the key, and while some people are annoyed by the fact that brands like Weekday, Monki, Topshop, etc are settling down in Norway because you loose the feeling of being the only one to own a certain dress, pair of shoes or belt, I think it challenges us in new ways in order to be creative. Go vintage.
What about you: do you like that we get all the top shops (pun intended) to Norway, or..?
[edit:] AND TOPSHOP TOO. Topshop will open a 3 story high store in the middle of Karl Johan in Oslo. Finally! [/edit]
Loads of boring covers lately (or maybe I’ve just been blind to the really good ones) but finally I found 3 covers I love. All 3 of them are from the spring issue of i-D, one of my absolute favourite magazines, and of course, any cover involving Natalia is a perfect one. Love it, or hate it?
