Mint

Idet jeg endelig begynte tro p varmere dager og bestillte meg mintgrnn topp fra Etsy, da kom snen tilbake igjen. Well, well.

- When I finally started to believe in warmer days and ordered a mint green top from Etsy, then the snow returned. Well, well.

Jenni Kayne fall 2011 // 3 favs

Jeg elsker materialene, fargene og snittene, men ekstra godt liker jeg skoene. Tenk tasse rundt i et par snne i sommer da. De er geniale!

-

I love the materials, the colours and the shapes, but most of all I really wish I could ramble around in a pair of those flats this summer. They're genius!

Today's vintage shopping

MY TREASURES

CLOSER LOOK // CAPE

Det er virkelig ingenting som kan mle seg meg vintageshopping p gode dager. Den mest presis e beskrivelsen er og blir skattejakt alts. Man leter liksom p en helt annen mte enn i vanlige butikker, blir mye gladere nr man endelig finner noe fint og enda gladere nr man ser p prislappen.

-

Nothing can compare to vintage shopping on good days.  The most accurate description is and always will be, treasure hunting. You search in a different way than in regular shops, gets a lot happier when you finally find something nice and even more happy when you look at the price tag.

Budget // White shirt

Jeg har vrt p jakt etter en hvit skjorte som gjr seg bra med- og uten genser. Den mtte vre lang nok til henge godt nedenfor genseren, ha sm snipper, vre billig, i tillegg kunne den ikke vre for smal og ikke for vid. Det er kanskje ikke s rart at jeg har leitet en stund? I dag fant jeg den i alle fall. Til usle 99 kr p H&M. Bare stryke den, s er den perfekt.

-

I've been looking for a white shirt that looks just as good under a sweater as alone.  It had to be long enough to be very visible, have small collars, be cheap and also not too tight and not too big. It's not that weird that I've been looking for it for a while, maybe? But today I actually found it. It was only 99 NOK at H&M. Now I just have to iron it, then it's perfect.

New in // Round choker

Juhu, endelig en ny choker i postkassa! Rundt og mrkt metall var absolutt noe nytt.

-

Juhu, finally a new choker in my mailbox! Round and dark metal was absolutely something new.

Head wraps // Diane von Furstenberg

SOURCE // MODETTE.NO

Jeg elsker denne looken fra Diane von Furstenberg. Spesielt n som sparesveisen kommer snikende. Leppestiften var ogs helt nydelig, s skrik ut om dere vet hvilken det er.

-

I love this look from Diane von Furstenberg. Especially as my saving hairdo is taking shape. The lipstick looked amazing too, so shout out if you now which one it is.

Wide // Rope

SOURCE // ELIN KLING AND LE FASHION

Jeg elsker disse vide buksene. Forelbig har jeg bare en hvit, s jakten etter en svart en har allerede begynt. I tillegg synes jeg det var s herlig se disse snorene som blir brukt som smykker. Det var nemlig min store favoritt p ungdomsskolen, s det sprs om jeg m sjekke om det kan bli en slager igjen.

-

I love these wide trousers. Right now I only have a white one, so the hunt for a black one has already begun. It was also really fun to see those ropes used as necklaces. You see, that was my favourite thing to wear when I was like thirteen or something, so now I have to give it another try I think.

Favorite streetstyle shots // Mars

SOURCE // STYLE.COM

Jeg blir aldri lei av streetstylebilder fra moteukene. Det er vel egentlig ingen andre steder man kan hente s mye inspirasjon p en gang, s bildedokumentasjon er rett og slett en velsignelse for alle oss som ikke er der.

-

I never get tired of all the streetstyle photos from the fashion weeks. It is no other place you can get that much inspiration all at once, so picture documentation is really a blessing for all of us who can't e there.

220311

Shoes from Sixtyseven, jeans, sweater and hat from H&M, bag from Zara and the belt I made myself.

Wants

1. Jil Sander 2. Vanessa Bruno 3. Zara 4. Maison Martin Margiela 5. Acne 6. J. Crew 7. Lanvin 8. Jimmy Choo (net-a-porter.com and lagarconne.com)

Jeg er all in for minimalistiske antrekk med en fargeklatt eller to. S n er blant annet et orange belte p vei til postkassa. Jey!

-

I'm all in for those minimal outfits combined with one or two colourful items. So soon there'll be an orange belt arriving in my mailbox. Jey!

Favs // Mag nr. 04

Det er jammen deilig kose seg med et rykende fersk Mag og svenskegodter p sndagsmorgenen alts. Og n begynner man virkelig kunne se at Mag har ftt ny redaktr. For min del, s er dette det beste nummeret jeg har bladd i.

-

It feels so nice to just relax, read a brand new magazine and eat on a Sunday morning. This is without doubt the best issue og Mag that I've ever read.

Jeans from Bik Bok, blazer from Gina Tricot, belt from H&M and top from Tiger of Sweden.

N er det klart for harrytur til Sverige!

Ready for a day trip to Sweden!

New in // Zara shoes

Endeliig. Jeg har siklet s lenge etter disse skoene fra Zara og ble superglad nr jeg fikk ye p dem igjen i dag. Overraskende behagelige g i ogs.

-

Fiinally. I've been drooling after these shoes for a long time now and got really happy when I spotted them at Zara again today. They're surprisingly good to walk with too.

Dreaming

SOURCE // WON HUNDRED

I dag drmmer jeg om en bukse som dette, sko som dette og en enkel t-skjorte som dette. Og lengre hr, da. Jeg er i gang med sparingen, s forbered dere p herlige sparesveiser fremover.

-

Today I'm dreaming of a pair of trousers like this, shoes like this and a plain t-shirt like this. And also, longer hair. Prepare for gorgeous hairdos, since I'm not planning to cut my hair any time soon.

In my mailbox // Sunglasses

GUCCI

GIORGIO ARMANI

Herregud, for en heerlig dag. Nr jeg kom hjem fra skolen i dag, s l der en aldri s liten hentelapp og ventet p meg. Det viste seg vre solbrillene fra Synsam-eventen som hadde kommet. Jeg var virkelig ikke forberedt p f dem s kjapt, s jeg er vel egentlig i ekstase enda. Liker begge parene utrolig godt allerede, s n hper p sol i morgen alts. Tusen, tusen takk Synsam!

-

My God, what a great day. When I got home from school today I found a little note from the post office. It turned out to be the sunglasses from the Synsam event. I was really not prepared to get them this soon, so I'm still really really happy. Both of them look soo nice, so now I'm hoping for sun tomorrow. Thank you so much Synsam!

No more hints

N har jeg akkurat sagt hade til mitt storfine besk, Celine og Stephen fra Mag. I mai kan dere alts finne meg og klesskapet mitt p trykk. Ganske s sykt m jeg si. Jeg gleder meg skikkelig til se hvordan resultatet blir!

-

My visitors just left and I can reveal that it was Celine and Steven from the Norwegian magazine Mag. So in May you can read about me and my wardrobe and I must say that it's quite insane. I can't wait to see how the whole thing turns out and of course, to show you guys.

Hint

Tirsdag morgen fr jeg storfint besk. W.

Tuesday morning I'll welcome some special visitors. Wee.

Tirsdag kveld var jeg p pningsfesten til H&Ms nye flagship store i Bogstadveien. Det var fire flotte etasjer stappet med godbiter og ikke minst en skikkelig imponerende home-avdeling! En utrolig vellykket event hvor jeg trasket rundt mellom alle slags typer folk, deilig mat, godteri og musikk. Kan jammen ikke klage.

-

Tuesday evening I went to the opening party of the new H&M flagship store in Bogstadveien. They showed four floors with lots of nice buys and even a really impressing home section! You can say that the night was a success where I walked around between all kinds of people, delicious food, candy and music. Can't really complain.

Wouldn't mind

Hermès details // Fall 2011 RTW

SOURCE // STYLE.COM

Jeg merker at det var detaljene som inspirerte mest av det som Hermès hadde vise frem denne gangen. De inspirerte i gjengjeld s det holdt! Helt nydelig.

-

I found the details from the Hermès show more inspiring than the whole looks this time. But they were in return very inspiring! Perfect.

 

Saga sunglasses // Gina Tricot

SOURCE // GINA TRICOT

Rkule solbriller som blir finne hos Gina Tricot fra uke 12. De minner litt om det frste paret jeg valgte meg ut p Synsam-visningen.

-

Insanely cool sunnies that will be available at Gina Tricot from week 12. They kind of remind me of the first pair that I chose at the Synsam release.

Pretty

Pretty, pretty, pretty. Nydelig sminke og nydelig ansikt. Det hadde forresten vrt helt supert om dere la igjen en stemme her.

-

Pretty, pretty, pretty. Gorgeous make-up and gorgeous face. It would also be so so nice if you guys left me a vote here.

Dette er noen av de viktigste tingene p nskelisten min akkurat n. Titter rundt p Etsy, Ebay og diverse andre netthandler til jeg blir bl i trynet.

-

These are some of the most important items on my wish list right now. I'm looking around on Etsy, Ebay and other online stores until my face turns blue.

Silver eyeshadow

I dag prvde jeg endelig litt slvskygge inspirert av Pradas vr- og sommervisning. Dessverre var den ikke helt som jeg hadde hpet p, s om noen vet om en som er litt mer kremete og enda mer slv, s si ifra!

-

I finally tried on some silver eyeshadow inspired by Prada's  spring and summer show. It wasn't the way I wanted it to be though, so if any of you know of a more creamy and even more silver one, tell me!
