How to: The Military trend

How to: The Military trend

Read more...

Last week when picking up a friend from the airport (working huge black sunglasses and a Starbucks- mug only, it was wayyyyyyy to early) I spotted a guy in a full spring/summer-trend outfit. Excited and still half asleep, I kicked BF and whispered: “Look, that’s how you work the military trend!”. Needless to say that I pointed out at a soldier in his uniform who picked up his fiancé (my fashion brain totally tricked me) but what can I say: THIS GEAR IS HOT. Even hotter as it’s not only sported for survival reasons (*hut* hut* hut* through the mud) but on every runway this spring too.

Back home and fully awake now it gave inspiration enough to dive into my closet and get carried away by camouflage prints, muddy greens, and earthy hues. Now you have a reason to cherish chunky boots, rough knits and work all of it “tone on tone”. Key essentials for the look: pockets everywhere (to store lipstick, mirrors, diaries, scented candles and whatever we carry around), heavy belts, laced shoes and of course the inevitable navy-pattern. You probably all have the key items in your wardrobe already, so feel free to get spirited up & fire away (no pun intended) with my guide above. For all the others I can recommend a visit to your local army store: hot dudes spotting all included.

HAVE FUN!

Birthday Week

Birthday Week

Read more...

It’s officially birthday week (my favorite after fashion week), and I find the frenzy very similar to that accompanying the highly anticipated fashion event.

Lots of shows (aka parties) to attend, always the question what to wear, which shoes to rock, who else is on the guest list , and of course: what will be in the goodie bag? The goodie bag that I will be bringing that is (read present).

I already celebrated my mother (kinda “live streamed” as Jet-Set-Mom decided to celebrate in Sweden), Ton is due to be cheered tomorrow, and today it’s THE day for my sweet sweet soul mate Ms.:

C- continuously busy and inspiring
O - over the top bubbly and vivacious
N - never dull

N - nor boring
I - incredibly warm and big hearted
E - endlessly fashionable

She, the one who would hand me over YSL’s with the words “for you – they’re not quite my size”, she - the only one I would give Jimmies in return “for you, they fit you better”, will be celebrated today. And other than a fashion live show ending after (frantic applause and cheering) a raving 20 minutes, our own life-show will go on and on and on (frantic applause and cheering) forever.

Happy Birthday Connie, I love you to bits!
