Acne accessories





Went to the Acne store a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with some accessories... The bag - black and leather, perfect. Maybe an autumn investment? And the Estelle shoes - love. Perfect for summer, and everyday shoes but with height... So pretty, comfortable and usable. And finally the Azalea shoes, no secret that I'm in love with them... 


Needless to say I left the store drooling and now, a few weeks later... Maybe one or two things are in my closet... To be continued...

my best friend





A few weeks ago my best friend came to visit, Elin, and I thought I would share some snapshots. It was a really short visit so we didn't have time for a lot, but the visit consisted of some cupcakes, shopping and loads of catching up. Amongst that we compared iPhone Mulberry cases, mine is a year old and hers is new. Mine used to look like hers...

tick tock



I know my posts are nothing but regular, I can't give a reason as to why. I have a lot going on right now; taking my drivers licence tomorrow, stress at school (this term is proving to be way more busy than previous terms), working, all whilst looking for a new job. So time flies for me whilst it seems to be standing still on the blog. But I have a lot of things to blog about so I will try to update for sure. Until then, you can always follow me on instagram, I'm trying it out... Find me at @martina_isabel ....


Oh! I almost forgot... Have I showed you this watch? I got it from Christmas and I can't wait until it gets the sort of used leather feel to it...

in the dark...


I know I have been gone lately.... I have had time off uni and I guess they gave me a finger and I took an arm and therefore just took time off the blog as well... What I have kept up with is my other blog, for the swedish site Gallerian, and then regular work, but other than that I have literally been offline - including social medias like facebook and twitter. But I will get back online now - and I have a lot of material :-)

my day



Sitting in our garden, working on the computer a little and then enjoying the sunshine with Elle. This was a few days ago, today the weather is actually not that great... They do say April is the up and down month weather-wise...

ACNE AW12 Afterparty










Realised I still hadn't posted some pics from the Acne AW12 after party so here goes. I wore a black Acne dress that I got to borrow from my lovely colleague Stine. Besides all my other colleagues and Jonny Johansson himself I also met bloggers like Hanneli (love) and Columbine Smille as well as Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine!! It was a really cool party and perfect ending to an amazing AW12 show! Can't wait for the clothes to start arriving... But first I have some other Acne pieces that are new in my wardrobe but I still haven't showed you... And Egypt pictures <3

I'm back from Egypt! More about that later - now for some news!! I will be blogging for a swedish shopping mall called Gallerian. I will still keep this blog for more private posts about my day, outfits and inspiration, but I will simultaneously be blogging at gallerian.se, posting street style photos, London tips and snapshots. Above you can see some of the details from looks already posted, for more - pop in at galleria.se and find me under "modeblogg" and then "London - Martina Persson".... Woop woop!

EGYPT



Gosh I though I would have a few minutes left over to blog some new material but I have just been so busy these past few days with exams, work and then family coming to visit <3 . And early tomorrow morning I am off to Egypt!!! I am hoping to be able to blog from there and keep you as jealous as I can with daily posts but I don't at all know what the internet facilities will be like so no promises!!! Until then, here's a picture from this summer when I was in Portugal...

B



B for busy, which is what I have been because it is exam and deadline season. However, my last exam is tomorrow and my essay is all handed in and although I have family coming to visit and a lot of things planned in for the next two weeks, I am hoping you will see a few more posts, but no promises... 


B is also for Balenciaga who in my eyes literally never fail... I mean look. Die.

nothing special but oh so nice




I'm quite good at buying Acne shoes that represent seasonal collections, so until now I actually haven't possessed any of the classic styles they have. I do have the Cypress boots, but the first style, which is different from this current continuous one. I also have the Rider boots, but in a colour that was seasonal, as opposed to continuous. But now, I have the most classic continuous Acne boots of them all. The Pistols. And its about time. So far, the pistols and I are very happy together.

what is in the brown box in the pink bag


Spent the weekend working and studying, exams coming up soon so I'm extra busy... But new in on the shoe shelf are some shoes from Acne... Pop in tomorrow for more info...

the green H&M dress



Here's the whole outfit... I went for a polo underneath my green H&M dress that I really love, and wear quite often, but don't think I have ever managed to capture an outfit picture with until now... Some pieces of clothing are just good at avoiding the camera for some reason... But here you go... Acne boots, Rayban wayfarers and the accessories of the previous post got to accompany the garments this time... 


Now I have so much school work to catch up on so I need to get started... Xoxo

accessories sneak peak



I still haven't shared this outfit I wore more than a week ago now. I will post it tomorrow... Until then, here's a sneak peak of my accessories that I wore. The watch was a gift from my boyfriend, I have been wanting a gold watch with brown leather...

Acne AW12 from my view










This post is all about the pictures so I will let them speak for themselves. Not the best quality, I know, but they still get the message across: Acnes autumn 12 collection is L-O-V-E-L-Y. Today is Sunday and it is beautiful outside so I will be spending some time with my dog and in the garden... But stay tuned for pictures from the after party!!! :-)

The Acne show venue



Boring post but my aim is to build up suspension... This is what the venue where the Acne AW12 show looked like before the people started arriving. It is such a cool place, located super central, it used to be an old post office but is now empty and Acne use it for their runway shows... It is a huge, open space and Acne put up these walls with doorways all through it, and then the models walked through the "rooms" that were created, and people were situated on wooden benches in all the rooms. The music was loud and as soon as the show was over the whole venue just turned into this huge after party with male models walking around serving drinks and canap├ęs... Like I said before, it was definitely a cool experience. Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the show!!!

through my lens


Speaking of building up my wardrobe, I must say the one thing I am good at is buying timeless sunglasses. I have a big movie-star pair from Bvlgari, the aviators from Rayban, and my latest ones are these wayfarers from Rayban. I got them from my boyfriend on valentines day and they are so great to toughen up a girlie outfit with!!! They are a bit big for my small face but I don't mind, it gives them a bit of a cat-eye look... Next up is a pair of white ones I think... Or a colourful pair anyway... Quite like the Acne ones, maybe in pink?

building up my wardrobe...



At uni today and all my pics are on my main computer so will post a post with an inspiration picture meanwhile... I'm thinking about what to focus on this spring when it comes to building up my wardrobe. I really need proper basics and that is going to be my first focus. Timeless pieces in good quality. But I am thinking about some fun jeans... Tie dye jeans like these (courtesy of Elin Kling) or some colourful ones, I'm thinking orange (maybe the Acne Flex?) or some pastel light yellow ones... Stay tuned because I will definitely be posting more about building up my, currently confused (full of random pieces from different trends that don't work with each other), wardrobe...!

Acne AW12 Backstage...









I sneaked backstage before the show and this is what I found... Pictures are taken with my iPhone so I hope you forgive the quality...! The Acne AW12 collection mixes bright colours with pastels and we saw burgundy, orange, lime green and yellow together with nude and pastel blue. The shoes are inspired by trainers and the belts are very wide.As always with Acnes AW collections are the knits amazing and the leather-pieces develop cravings. All is regular in the dreamy Acne world, in other words!


I loved the collection, truly, but I'm wondering whether any of the shoes will end up in my closet... I have never really liked the trainers-inspired trend... As for the amazing runway show, the after party, and my outfit... Stay tuned!

Marni for H&M




Oh yay! Finally more about the Marni collection for H&M!! Out in stores on the 8th of March and I am in love. I have always had a thing for Marni, don't know why but there's something that just draws me to the design, the prints, the colours and the general look... Here is a collage of my favourites but this is seriously the time I wish I had money. The collection is a nice collected one with lovely materials like wool, silk and patent leather. And Marni, as always, does not disappoint with accessories. I will be queuing!

Fashion Week Kick-Off





OK, so fashion week for me kicked off on Thursday at Jalouse, a really nice night club by Bond Street tube station. It was a party arranged by me for Fashion Insider Magazine, where I have been interning the last month. I don't have a lot of pictures but it looked a little like this. I wore Acne and H&M which is usually what ends up on my body so nothing special. 


Friday and Saturday was spent at work (Acne) so I didn't attend any events those days, but Sunday was the Acne show so I went to Somerset House a little earlier and then made my way over to the venue the Acne show was held in. The show was amazing, as always, but I will save that for another post! But Sunday night was definitely a great night!


Got loads to share with you guys so check in soon again!
