There’s nothing like making up grand online wish lists whilst on my couch at night, it’s the perfect “shopping spree” with no requirements as to appropriate attire. If my funds were unlimited, and my apartment a great deal bigger, these would be going into my online shopping basket.
1. Zara denim coat that would be perfect for fall / 2. Missoni turban, that without a doubt could make any outfit a little less dull / 3. Vintage Murano dream in rosy glass / 4. Tom Ford body oil – perfect for sunkissed summer skin (sadly my tan isn’t quite there after a month in Copenhagen) / 5. Vintage book donkey by Egon Riss for Isokon / 6. Celine mini Audrey in tortoise.
My summer in Copenhagen is closing in on it’s end. I’m excited to go back to school, and most importantly, to go back to NYC. As much as I adore Copenhagen, I miss the hustle and bustle of New York. I must say this though, it’s been a great summer, despite the lack of summer weather.
1. Parties and fun nights out with friends, and my lovely man / 2. Sleeping in, over and over again / 3. Flea-markets and loads of them, found some of my favorite china – confetti, so pretty / 4. Quick trip to Tokyo with my friend – there’s nothing like major jet-lag due to a 24 hour trip / 5. Man Ray exhibition (yay) / 6. Shopping!
My soundtrack for late nights at school, it’s absolutely perfect.
First outing for my “new” vintage dress from the 1930’s that I got at my favorite vintage store Another Man’s Treasure. I had a limp this day due to my Saint Laurent boots that absolutely kill my feet, so I thought I’d try to hide my limp just a little bit by wearing a long dress.. Sadly that did not work. Luckily my limp does not show in pictures.

Happiest face in town, running around snapping pictures of people for a school assignment, and my darling friend Maya snapped a picture of me as well.

Speaking of exhibitions, one of my favorites from last year was the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Brooklyn museum. A huge exhibit going over most of his archive. There was one collection I fell for a bit more than the others, the collection was Chic Rabbis F/W 1993. First of all the entire ensemble in the picture above is beyond incredible, and also, this is sort of exactly what I want to wear when the temperatures drop.
The news on next years Met Gala theme is out, and I’ll honestly say I’m excited for this one. The theme is chinese whispers, which will include art, film and fashion. And show how westerners have included the eastern culture and both understood and misunderstood it. I also look forward to seeing how people will dress on the red carpet for this one (last year was a slight failure, red carpet-wise, in my eyes)
