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!

the busy London Fashion Week

Hey lovelies! The title says it all really, been super busy with work, school, but mainly London Fashion Week. The internship that I am doing has definitely been... interesting. More about it tomorrow, promise. 'Til then here's a street style photo that I took of these two lovely orange-adorned people with beautiful bags outside Somerset House :-)

inspiration cont.

Inspiration photo's from Jak&Jil is what I am looking for as London Fashion Week is around the corner and I am thinking about what I might wear. LFW is also the reason the blog is running dry on content, I am so busy and stressed with organising everything before all the shows begin next week!

February 4, 2012


Am now officially employed by Acne so count on seeing a lot of their products on the blog in the future! I also thought this was an appropriate moment to post this picture that have been in my inspirations-folder for ages. I kind of love the shoes... I told myself I didn't like them but I keep coming back to them... Unfortunately, they are long gone now, I think they were pre A/W 2011... But I am beating myself up for not getting them...
