Tonight I'm on...

my own.

The boyfriend is working late and that means sushinight.

And a movie he wouldn't want to watch.

I sat up...

all night to watch the Oscars - ask me if I'm tired...
My two favorite looks were very different, yet they had the same simple silhouette.

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce and Gabbana

Cate Blanchett in Givency

I bought a...

new nailpolish, which I think will be the favorite this spring & summer.
As per usual it's from Depend.

The ring on my left hand was bought at Gina Tricot, which just opened yesterday.
It opened at 12pm, and I was a fool to go there at 12.15 - isanity!
Sooo many people that you could hardly get around, so I just grabbed this pretty ring and decided to return next week when things will have settled down.

The ring on my right hand I got from my boyfriend as a Christmas present our first year together - definitely my favorite gift ever!

This sunday

Will you be watching?

Yesterday was an...

evening of good times.
We started out at a new place called Sofia's, which only serves soups and salads.

They have some very fair prices.
I had the chilisoup, and it could have had a lil more chili bite to it, but at that price I couldn't complain. If you're not famished you can do with a soup, but if you haven't eaten all day go with a soup and a salad - you can deffinitely afford it.

Next we went to the Performing Art Centre (Musikhuset).

The room was packed when the show started, and it was H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!

I'm trying not...

to spend any money in the amusement category, cause I wanna save some for spring clothes coming up, but when my friend invited me to a show with two Danish Stand-up Comedians, who did this mock poster...

I had to accept.
I'm paying for my own ticket, but dinner is on her - nice with good friends!
Here's the original poster with Benicio Del Torro and Johnny Depp in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas adapted from the book by the genius Hunter S. Thompson.

Today's outfit in...

bits and pieces.

dress with elbowpatch Cos, necklace used as bracelet Cos, scarf H&M, tights H&M

Mr. Murakami...

is a must read if you enjoy being taken into the mysterious and surrealistic fantasy of his.
He writes like no other living author and is often compared to Kafka.

It is so...

strange to be sitting in your wool sweater (which I live in these days) looking out on the snow covered rooftops and go through H&M's just added spring clothes, but here is a selection of it...

I crushing on the boots... and the blue dress...

When I first...

saw these babies they were priced at 300 DKK, and since I didn't really need new shoes I passed on them.
Then today, while enjoying the snow I walked by the shop again and saw through the window doors that they were marked down to 50DKK - needless to say that they are now mine!

They are from Pieces and comfy.

I went to...

dinner at a friend's house yesterday and this is what I wore

It's snowing outside - Loving it!!

Last night was...

the Grammy Awards.
I'm very picky when it comes to liking a red carpet dress, and my favorites differ from season to season.
Apparently I'm feeling very cutesy and summery, cause these were my two faves...

Tween star Selena Gomez

Style Icon Kelly Osbourne
There was something off about Miss O's hair - I like it much better when it's up.

It's been the...

clean and sophisticated looks that have caught my attention so far during this MBFW
(Mercedes Benz Fashion Week)

Cynthia Rowley did it with a splash of color and shiny fabric.

Rag & Bone are all over the over the knee socks and geometric patterns.

Last night we...

had a few people over for drinks.

A friend of the Boyfriend's was in town for his birthday, and we gathered about 7 people to celebrate.

dress tights necklace H&M, shoes Sixtyseven

I bought this dress about a week ago.

It was only 149 DKK and eventhough it's polyester I'm quite loving it!

The shoes are another thing. They are NOT comfy in any way. My feet are sooo sore today. Definitely have to buy some of those jelly pads to put in them!!

The NYC Fashion...

week has begun, but none of my favorite designers have shown yet, so here's one of my favorite past Project Runway contestants, Christian Siriano, showing his AW11 collection

A heck of a lot of black!!

And volume on the bottom.
It wasn't a wow collection, and it didn't show any new and inspiring pieces.
He kept it classic and pretty.

onsdag den 9. februar 2011

I bought this...

top at Cos on sale, and love it!!
It's a tad more purple in real life, and will be a favorite this spring/summer!
I love the fabric they use at Cos!

Last time I...

visited my sister we found these sunglasses in H&M, but weren't sure we should buy them. Then I found them on saturday and decided to get them.

Definitely a different look than my usual sunglasses.

The past week...

the Copenhagen Fashion Week AW (CFW) was held, and as per usual I liked the outcome of it a lot more than the SS. Fall Winter just has so many different looks, whereas SS just all about white and pastels shades.

Henrik Vibskov

Margit Brandt

Stine Goya

Veronica B Vallenes

YDE (they make the most beautiful dresses!!)

A show I...

haven't enjoyed for the past years is the halftime show at Super Bowl.
The performers of the past years have been stale, non-theatrical people like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and the Who.
This year it was the Black Eyed Peas, and they brought in some friends...

Slash, Usher and a lot of glowing dancers made this performance somewhat entertaining.
My favorite halftime show is still this one...

Basically the recipe for a good halftime show is a bit of 80's rocker with a popgroup in funny outfits and the apperance of a somewhat solid singer... way to top it off is to throw a lil eye candy in the mix.
A tip for the halftime producers: get a better soundsystem!!

I'm working all...

weekend and then some, so I thought I'd treat myself to some new items for my closet.

These tights are organic cotton and the shoes were on sale from Sixtyseven.
I love the solid heel and the bit of plateau.

When I found black tights with a pretty pattern I had to grab them.
They were in my size too, which is rare.
It's a mystery to me why the shops don't stock up on bigger sizes, since they always seem to be the ones selling out first.

Then the RARE sight of me in animal print.
I didn't recognise the patterns of these two as animal,
and was a bit surprised when I put them on.
I'm kinda growing into liking them.
All tights are from H&M.

There is often...

a big difference between the home you create with your man and the home you would have created were you single.
These secondhand store lamps would be in my 'singlewoman'-home.

The boyfriend is not big on the color brown or anything that resembles the 70's.
Must keep on dreaming.

While out shopping...

for dinner and whatnot, I came across this moisturising cream for the face, which was downprized at 20%.

It's without perfume, colourants and parabens.
Will try it out and see if my sensitive skin will accept it.

Today is the...

opening day of Copenhagen Fashion Week (CFW), and on that occasion I decided to wear what I'd be wearing if I was attending any of the shows or events.

t-shirt pants H&M, cardi Topshop

I'd keep it simple, and let the pleater on the pants be the only accessory.

I would be wearing shoes ofcourse, but couldn't decide on which, so went barefoot. (for the picture, not what I would do going out!)

tirsdag den 1. februar 2011

The two things...

I'm not allowed in February are...

Fast food!
No McDonalds, Burger King, Take away pizza (I'm allowed to make my own healthier kind).

It's become a bit of a habit for me to drink up to 5 cups a day.
Too much in my opinion!
This includes Latte, Cappu and Espresso as well.
I'm going to replace them with teas, but it will mostly be decaf teas!
(Notice how the nail polish is already on?)
