I know, I know! Once again I have disappeared but trust me, I have good reasons. For the past few months I have had such a stressful time. I have had Spex and been working on my final thesis, so basically I have been work non stop and minimal time to sleep or socialise. Just after I handed in my thesis, it was time to pack my bags for approx. 5 weeks in the exotic Colombia for work and some vacation.
For the moment I’m Florencia and let me tell you, I’m loving it! The people, food, nature and weather is amazing!! Some days it gets really hot but after a long and cold winter, I’m enjoying the heat. The locals thinks I’m a bit funny and weird when I put on my bikini and lays down to get tan. You see, the majority of Colombians are so much used to the sun so they don’t even bother to use sun lotion to protect their skin or sunglasses or anything of that stuff, they instead walks around with a umbrella. They also wears jeans and tops with long sleeves in thus heat!!I can’t really understand how they cope with the heat under so many layers of clothes!!
Just before traveling to Colombia, many people told me to don’t bring my computer or anything valuable with me and at the last minute, I left my beloved Mac at home, now regretting it. To scared of getting robbed, I also didn’t bring my camera with me! I think I made the right decision about my camera because the locals tells me to not even bring even my phone with me outdoors because robbery has increased so much past few years, so I have just a few pics of Colombia. I want to take a few more pics before showing to you guys so for now, here is some pics of Instagram favourites!!
During the recent fashion weeks, I have noticed that a lot of fashionistas are using their jackets as a cape, and it looks amazing. Looking through different streetstyle pics from the recent fashion weeks, women are skipping the sleeves of their jacket and letting the jacket drape on their shoulders. But notice that this trend can be a bit risky and in some cases not practical. Why? Well, it´s a challenge to made sure that the jacket stays on your shoulders. Any minute, you can drop the jacket on the ground.But don´it worry, here is some tips on how you can pull this trend of.

Shoulder Span: To make sure that the jacket stays on you shoulder, buy a jacket with a wide and well structured shoulder span. The shoulder span will make the jacket easier to stay on you shoulder.
Clutch it: if you want to pull this trend of, leave your tote bag at home and instead, bring your clutch. Remember that you´re not wearing the sleeves of your jacket, the strap of the tote bag will become a huge problem. For this trend, the accessories becomes very important!
Proportions: When wearing jacket as a cape, it can overwhelm your shape. To avoid this, wear a slim fitted style on the bottom and it will give you a clean line and proportion. The second layer (underneath the jacket) should be thick to avoid being cold, nobody looks cool when they´re cold.
So now, you have all the tolls and knowledge to pull this trend of
It´s almost the end of March and still, there is no sign of the long-awaited spring that I know most of you guys are longing for. But don´t let the snow kill all of our longing for SS13 shoes trends. Today I have collected all of the major shoe trends for Spring/Summer 2013. Enjoy
THE SEE IT THOUGH TREND
1.Givenchy, 2. Nina Ricci
One of SS13 biggest MUST HAVES, in both bags and shoes is “the see it through- trend”. The transparency trend has made a comeback, hurray hurray!! Recently, the transparency trend has been pooping here and there, and now has been seen in bags, coats, jewelry and more. The idea behind this trend is exciting and daring because it allows basically any stranger to see whats in a women´s bag or foot (maybe a lump?)
1.Altuzarra, 2.Alexander Wang
Last time the gladiator sandal was trendy, the year was 2008. A few years later, the trend has made a comeback, but this time, the gladiator trend is more bold and has been interpreted in different ways. Some designers has focused on the heels, while other designers has focused on the shape.
1.Phillip Lim, 2.Victoria Beckham
The black and white combination is always modern and very chic. Specially for SS13, there is many black and white interpretations, specially in womenswear and handbag!
I love when designers thinks “outside the box” and creatives shoes with funny and creative details. For SS13, expect heels in different shapes and sizes. Love it!!
“Black-and-white always looks modern, whatever that word means.”
There is something magical about black and white images. Don´t you guys agree?
With a black globe in the middle of the runway at Grand Palaise, in Paris, Chanel presented AW 13 collection called ” Global Look” to the rest of the world during Paris Fashion Week. As always, Karl Lagerfeld made his own interpretation of the traditional tweet set and used materiel like chains and leather to realize his visions.
Karl Lagerfeld comment about the collection and said ‘It’s not world fashion domination, It’s about the globalization of fashion. I wanted a global look, not a French look. I wanted a very monochrome silhouette – dark but not sad – a touch of shine, a touch of pink.’
I really liked the globe bags and the footwear but hated the fur hats. Mr Lagerfeld, what was you thinking when designing the hats?
Last night I bumped into this amazing artist from South Africa! Love his work of art. For more pics, visit click here
Lately I have started to appreciate hats and notice how chic hats really are. During Copenhagen Fashion Week, I had some time to kill and ofcourse I stroll around Copenhagen´s shopping streets. I manage to find a brown hat and from that on, I started to realize hats magic force! Hats looks great with almost all off my outfits, specially during this time of year when the sunshine sometimes peeking out from winter’s gray sky. My advice is to buy a hat asap and combine it with a minimalist and clean jacket.

Anna Dello Russo (ADR) describes herself as a “passionate fashionista” and that is the best way to describe one of worlds biggest and most well known woman in the fashion industry.

Why I adore ADR?
ADR is famous for taking looks straight from the latest runway to the streets and she´s never afraid to dress exactly as she feels like. I love how Anna plays around with different styles and at the age of 50, she has never looked more beautiful. I worship the combination of styles Anna dares to combine and guess what? She looks amazing in everything! One of my biggest dreams is to work side by side with this gorgeous lady.
It was hard to find favorites looks at Anna, but here is some of ADR´s inspiring outfits.
