Finally, February is OVER! This was not a fun month for me, alas, so despite my increaing bursts of panic attacks because of my soon-to-be-finished-and-nowhere-near-it-thesis, I am in a good mood today. Good thing it was the shortest month, if it had been one with 31 days, I do not know what I would have done...
A short month and so not many restocks and new arrivals. But maybe most of the clothes came in January or are yet to come. Nevertheless, a few nice pieces to celebrate the farewell to February and hello March.
I really like these straight leg jeans and the trenchcost. Musthaves in every wardrobe. I also cannot wait to get my blush pink trench out and I was really happy because today was the first day in 2013 where I could wear heels and not fear broken limbs!
Cheers to Spring!
Åh, hvor er det skønt, at februar er ovre. Det var ikke lige den bedste måned for mig, desværre, så til trods for mine små angstanfald over mit skal-snart-være-færdigt-men-mangler-stadig-meget-speciale, så har jeg været i godt humør i dag. Heldogvis var det den korteste måned, jeg ved ikke hvad jeg ville have gjort hvis den havde haft 31 dage!
Og en kort måned er måske grunden til de få nye ting i butikkerne, eller også har de været der i januar eller kommer først senere endnu. Dog var der nogle fine ting alligevel. Jeg kan virkelig godt lide de helt almindelige straight leg jeans og den fine trenchcoat. Ting man er nødt til at have i sin garderobe. Jeg glæder mig også selv til at hive min pudder-lyserøde trench ud, og jeg var tæt på lykkelig da jeg kunne have høje hæle på i dag uden at konstant frygte for mine lemmer!
Glædeligt Forår!

Fashion Fix: Dior's New Look 1947

Pinned Image
One of my favourite designs and looks in the eternal history of fashion and style is Christian Dior's Bar suit from the New Look collection in 1947.
To me, it is the epitome of elegance and shape-wise it is my go-to style for when in doubt of what to wear.
Either pairing a flared or pleated black or marine blue skirt with white or cream shirts or making a bit more edgy by adding a white t-shirt. The importance is in the skirt's lines and the monochrome colours.
I am on the hunt for the perfect white or cream coloured blazer or jacket to go with my black skirt from Asos, in order to fulfill my own New Look. But my heart does have a soft spot for the late 1940s fashions, again tailoring and draping catches my eye.

Et af mine yndlingslooks fra modehistorien er Christian Dior's Bar Suit fra sin New Look kollektion fra 1947.
Det er for mig højdepunktet indenfor elegance og det er også mit go-to look til hvis jeg er i tvivl om hvad jeg skal tage på. Enten at sætte en plisseret eller a-formet nederdel til hvide eller cremefarvede bluser og skjorter, eller hvis man vil være lidt mere med kant, så en hvid t-shirt. Det vigtigste er nederdelens form of så det monokrome look.
Jeg er på jagt efter den helt rigtide blazer eller jakke til min sorte nederdel fra Asos, så jeg kan udleve mit eget New Look. Men mit hjerte har altså et svagt punkt for de sene år i 1940erne, igen fanger draperinger og skrædderkunst mit øje.

Sylvia Plath 1932-1963


Today, it is 50 years ago the world lost what would prove to be one of its most significant poets and novelists.
There is such a sadness thinking about how well she wanted to do and her stuggle between literature and family life.
She holds a very special place in my heart, for better or worse, reminding me to believe in myself, trust myself, never to give up. Her diaries have been a source of knowing that I am not utterly alone in this world with these thoughts and aspirations.

I wish I could tell her how big an inspiration she has been to so many here, and how we admire her struggle, and weep for her downfall. It would probably just have been a small consolation, if any to her, that we devour everything from her hand - whether poems or drawings. Because she was also a talented artist in this field.
The drawings below are from a show featuring her unknown works. The details and simplicity of just a pair of shoes both enhance the struggle to free herself of expectations and yet to live up to them at the same time.

The draft of the poem 'The Sting' shows the first draft in along series of corrections - forever trying to get it right.

To me, Sylvia Plath is not just a golden lotus, she is a lioness, and hopefully she has found the rest and the piece she so longed for.

Pastel Couture: Alexis Mabille

No secret: I adore Haute Couture because it is unavailable and excuisite.. I have a huge respect for the craftmanship needed to establish oeself in this fierce invironment, and though I did not know of Alexis Mabille four years ago, I think he is nailing it every season.
And tell me one, who does not appreciate a soft pink runway!? A gorgeous choice to match his looks.
These are my favourites.

Det er ingen hemmelighed, at jeg elsker haute couture netop fordi det er uponåeligt of fuldendt! Jeg har stor respekt for det håndværk, som skal til for at kunne klare sig i denne hårde verden, og selvom jeg ikke kendte til Alexis Mabille for fire år siden, så kan han altså fange trenden hver gang.
Og nævn én, som ikke vil elske en lyserød catwlak!? Et fantastisk valg tl hans kreationer.
Disse er mine favoritter.

Good Morning

Pinned Image
Good morning everyone..
This photo just makes me so happy, and I hope that I can get to be this enthusiastic every morning. However, and sadly though, I am a bit grumpy in the morning so it is no fun to have workers in your bathroom and kitchen for the next three weeks! Especially when you haven't had all the information you need to arrange yourself. Anyways, I just hope that no unforeseen problems will arise and they will be gone soon again.
Yeah, I am really a bowl of fruit loops this morning, ha!
God morgen allesammen..
Jeg bliver i så godt humør af dette foto; jeg ville ønske, at jeg var sådan hver morgen. Men desværre er jeg altid lidt mut om morgenen, så det er ikke særlig sjovt at skulle have håndværkere i køkken og badeværelse de næste tre uger! Specielt når man heller ikke får al den information man har brug for hvis man vil prøve at leve i rodet. Jeg håber bare, at der ikke opstår uforudsete problemer og at de hurtigt bliver færdige igen.
Så ja, jeg er bare frk. solskin her til morgen...

Finally! January is over and February is now upon us. If it was not for the snow and rain here in Aarhus, I would be looking forward to spring. This ambivalence may show through my favourites from January's new arrivals in the web-shops. Still a lot of black and classic pieces but with the bright spring and giddy-happy colours taking over bit by bit.
I am a sucker for draping and good tailoring and nom nom nom.. all good this past month! Oh, and throw in the colour pink and I could not be happier..
i cannot decide which Bayswater I like the best: the blush or the hot pink!? Both please.. However, I am very intrigued by the orange and grey dress by Roksanda Ilincic because I think orange hues are the most difficult to wear. At least for me.
And top it off with nice shoes and your zodiac necklace and come what may...
Endelig er januar ovre og februar godt på vej. Hvis det ikke var for slud og regn her i Århus ville jeg næsten tro på at foråret var på vej.
Denne ambivalente følelse viser sig måske i mine favoritter fra diverse butikker på nettet. Der er stadig en masse klassiske sorte varer men de lyse og sjove forårsvarer er også på vej ind i garderoberne.
Jeg elsker virkelig draperinger og god skrædderkunst og jeg blev ikke skuffet i denne måned. Og hvis man inkluderer farven pink, så er jeg altid glad! Så jeg kan simpelthen ikke vælge hvilken Mulberry Bayswater-taske som jeg helst vil have: den pudderfarvede eller den skrigende pink? helst begge, tak!
Ikke desto mindre er jeg meget fascineret af den orange og grå kjole fra Roksanda Ilincic, for jeg synes at orange er den sværeste farve at bære. I hvert fald for mig.
Men man kunne jo prøve at bruge smukke sko og en halskæde med ens stjernetegn til.
