Y-3 x WOOD WOOD A/W 14 15 // CPHFW

Thursday was a great day in terms of shows, in the morning we went to Stine Ladefoged and then Edith & Ella.
After we were invited to the Wood Wood store on Gronnegade for a few drinks in the afternoon sun to preview the Y-3 A/W 14 -15 collection. Wood Wood has been a favourite store brand of mine for a long time and my husbands, who will regularly shop in their store in Berlin.

WALI MOHAMMED BARRECH SS15 // CPHFW

Copenhagen Fashion Week holds a special place in my heart, I love London too and of course Sydney but there is something about the collection of talent thats found here that's like no other, this unpretentiousness that makes you feel like everything here is done from the heart - there is no-one trying to be something they are not and everyone's style is so unique, personal and individual. And yes i may be biased being half Danish but its true. Anyways enough ranting about how good Copenhagen is. A definite highlight for me this year was Wali Mohammed Barrech's show.


THIN & CRISPY AT COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK // DAY 1

One wouldn't normally associate nordic countries with sweltering humidity and blazing heat but the sun has been out , crisping the edges of our skin nicely. But I shouldn't complain, because we wouldn't want it any other way - there is something so magical about Copenhagen in the summer.

MY STYLE // IN LOVE WITH MY NEW SEQUIN SHORTS

So last week we had a splendid trip to Barcelona for the weekend, however our Ryanair baggage allowance - 10kgs for both my son and myself prevented me from bringing my camera but packing light meant I was able to throw in a few purchases from Barcelona.
Spain is the land of Zara and they had their sale on.. so treated myself to a few new bits to see me through till the end of summer. These little shorts have to have been my favourite purchase overall. Perfect with a loose white button up shirt and beaded sandals and a denim jacket to throw over when the evenings get a little cooler.

We had a lovely evening BBQ in the garden celebrating my father-in-laws birthday and although the mozzies came out to join us (uninvited) - we couldn't complain too much - there is nothing like a lovely balmy evening in the english countryside.

TREND ISSUE // SOCKS + SNEAKERS

So there has been a trend emerging for a while.. socks + sneakers.. "sneaking" its way into all the fashion mags.. Best worn with an oversized trench and pretty skirt, or paired down with your favourite pair of ripped jeans pin rolled up to the ankle. The perfect comfy shoe option for a day wandering around your favourite shopping streets.

Here are a few of my favourites for your inspiration:

DIY // Organize // Vintage Tools Chest converted to Jewellery Box

Another prime example of how I hoard. I buy something and only take it out of the garage 6 months later to find a use for it!

I bought this vintage tools chest from Bath and West Giant Flea Market for £15. It was really beaten up and had a horrible layer of laminate wood which i had to peel off and sand down. Sorry no pics of it before.


LABEL TO WATCH // NICOLE PASKAUSKAS

I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful girl last week as we prepared to include some of her pieces in an editorial I was shooting and just had to share her stuff with you. Nicole graduated from London College of Fashion in July this year and I think has a really bright future ahead of her.
Nicoles creates accessories from the simple use of natural materials - wool and hair by 'wrapping' and knotting together to create incredibly affective statement pieces.


The images below are from her SS15 lookbook titled 'Wrapped'.


LIFE // THINGS BEEN A BIT BUSY

Wow. its been almost a month since my last post, shame on me! But in my defence, things have been ridiculously busy with work - a month full of shooting, tons of exciting meetings, a husband that travels like crazy and a 2.5 year old at home with a house to manage - which doesn't leave me much time to write on here. I have also been frantically getting prepared to launch a new online store concept with full details coming soon, and can't wait to share with you.
