White and wide



zara shirt
h&m waistcoat
zara bag

I wore yet another new leather waistcoat the other day, I've realised it goes with everything I own and looks nice zipped up as well... I'm sure you'll see it worn many different ways within the weeks to come.

I'm having somewhat difficult converting to fall, this week it's been promised to be around 25 degrees here in london, which is really nice but (dare I say) somewhat boring..

Dalmatians on my nails


topshop nailswraps

I tried the dalmatian nail wraps from topshop's unique collection, and I have to admit I absolutely love them! not just do I love the print on everything but especially on my nails... most fun I've done nail-wise in a long time or maybe ever.. I'm five.

Elves at Aminaka Wilmont


Preparations before the show, backstage at Aminaka Wilmont. The collection was inspired by Scandinavian changeling, where the signature jersey pieces were transformed in to a more structural, fairytale like collection.


the hair was done by Kenna and his creative ghd team. They started off by braiding the hair in sections.


whereafter the braids were straighted and comb through..


a straighted clip was added on the side, leaving the ears sticking out to enhance the whole fairytale like feel.

overall a beautiful collection complimented with a extraordinarily hair, wouldn't you agree?
a huge thank you to ghd for taking me backstage.

For a day at LFW I wore my new zara coat over a thick suba jumper in the hopes of fighting off this cold.. I added a beautiful helmut lang skirt, that I sadly managed to rip within the first hours of the day. I should not act that surprised as I went with pairing a delicate jersey piece, that I am way too short for, with a spiky boots...

for a bag I wore the originally black clutch, that after the paint job from last fall looks better everyday. I've used it as a computer case ever since to get that perfect distressed finish.

Minimal baroque




h&m hair ring

I allowed myself a new pair of sunglasses although the warm weather is officially over.. I have to admit I was quite fascinated by pradas blue and white extreme sunglasses that were everywhere last summer, but as I could not see myself wearing them much after the season in question (which I do understand is not always the point) I fell for this black version.. a combination of a cat eye and the classical round shape too perfect to pass.

and the much waited hair ring arrived to the high street, such a find that for the price of a soda I'm stocking up on these.. I have a feeling they might sell out and become one of those cheap finds you end up paying designer prices for on ebay.

Dusk




helmut lang dress
zara coat


I have a little style crush on anything with spagetti straps at the moment, so I allowed this helmut lang number to come home with I found it alone on a rack in helsinki..

Now I need to cure this cold for one more important party before heading back to london to catch up on fashion week...

Silk separates


h&m shirt
zara pants
jimmy choo shoes

Mostly what I am in to now... I'm trying to justify layering loose on loose by keeping the materials light.. should have though about the fact that they weigh next to nothing and makes a perfect travel wardrobe.. resulting in a chance to back more shoes. Actually somewhat longing back to my normal london routine now.. which should start sometime next week, just in time to miss out on some of the best days of fashion week.. sad I know but luckily I won't miss it all and it's also a slight comfort to think that it's twice a year.
