Bought this Diane von Furstenberg dress at Scoop in Meatpacking the other day. Love the rich velvet and a-symmetrical shape. Animal print has never really been my thing, but I find my self buying it more lately. I especially love the styles where the print is more obscure, like on this dress. It can also be worn as a top, which will work nicely with black leather leggings. I also bought a leopard print fake fur, (not obscure at all!!) at Century 21 just for fun! I feel almost vulgar wearing it, but love it at the same time. Makes me think of Alabama in the movie True Romance, her style was definitely tacky, but also cool in a way! Might post a pic of the jacket later.. Time to get ready for "the last supper" of 2009, cheers to the new year!

Iselin Steiro in Acne Paper. Good combo - great result! I bought a cotton tanktop-dress from Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair (similar in fabric and color to the one in the top picture) a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait for spring.. it is almost full length and will be great worn with flat boots. pics via fashion gone rogue
Got these HL leather pants at Intermix so cheap yesterday it's ridiculous. Haven't been this excited about a purchase in a long time! Dree Hemingway is a tad too skinny, but looks very cool in her winter attire in the first pic, I must say. New York is freezing today, but we braved the cold and went to the Rockefeller Center and Times Square before we had lunch at Pastis in Meatpacking which was all great. Leaving NYC tomorrow, but plan on a trip back in May. Pics: google & altamiranyc
Went to Opening Ceremony on Howard St. last night alone to do some shopping. Struggled by busy Chinatown to get there and was so happy to find it when I finally did. This store sells Chloe Sevigny's own line, Erin Wasson's RVCA line and carries both Rodarte and Alexander Wang to name a few. They even sell Whyred, Rika and Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, which I guess is quite exclusive over here.. Well, the sales are on and I was sure to at least make one good bargain, but didn't! Everything I wanted was sold out in my size. I left with a book about personal style by Amanda Brooks and was kind of bummed. I still recommend the store to anyone coming here who like contemporary fashion. And to make up for the lack of bargains yesterday I bought some really nice things at Intermix on Bleecker today that I might show later. Tomorrow my wallet is [CLOSED - please come back another day!], which means it's time for sightseeing! Pic via google
Before I left Oslo I got an early present from my fabulous friend Hillevi. Taschens guide to New York. It is such a beautiful book full of New Yorks best when it comes to shopping, dining and hotels. It's decorated with lovely pictures and illustrations, just how I like it - a mix of new and old. I'm off to the city for four days now, and have already reserved lunchtables at Balthazar and Pastis. Guggenheim and Moma are also musts, so excited! Tonight I might go out for drinks on the Lower East Side with an old colleague. See you in a few days! xxx
manicures are a rare luxury for me in Oslo as they are way overpriced and never any good. went and got one here right before dinner on x-mas eve. I've been lounging around in my new floral harempants from H&M trend, hoping spring will come early next year!
I've stacked up on cute undies from Victoria's Secret and Gap, bought a spiky bracelet at Topshop and splurged on a scented candle from Diptyque that smells of fig. And finally I found a hat with the prefect fit, quality and color at Comptoir des Cotonniers on Spring Street. Just little things to make me happy!
Stopped by Magnolia bakery on Bleecker street yesterday. Such a cute place, though the latte was not very good. I'm such a picky coffee drinker. Also went to the new Topshop (which was great), LF Stores, Bloomingdales, Scoop & Intermix. But I didn't do too much shopping yesterday as the the sales will most likely explode on the 26th of Dec. Today we're going back to Princeton for some last minute gift shopping. Happy holiday!
I arrived on US ground yesterday, the same day as the Rodarte for Target collection was launched (read about it in a magazine on my way here). So my sis and I stopped by a Target store on our way to pick up mom at the airport and checked it out. Some cute dresses and tops, but only ended up buying two things which are both gifts. Two of my g-friends will be lucky! Pics borrowed from nymag.com
After an extremely busy week I'm going to be ridiculously tired at the annual x-mas party with my girls tomorrow. Let's hope it results in lots of giggling rather than getting sleepy and too drunk. When this tired, I never know. As for my tired eyes, I'd love to wear MKs feather mask. One day, 1,5 hrs until the holiday begins, yes!
I believe the maxi-skirt trend is going to blow up come spring. First of all the slimmer, jersey version, but also the wider maxi skirt will probably become a trend. It's sneaking upon us. Rick Owens and Ann Demeulemeester have been designing these for years. Early fans of those designer trends might not be so happy if the trend grows too big. Only time will tell. Definitely feeling it, both comfy and cool. Pics via google
The Bobbi Brown vitamin face cream, the foundation stick, the face oil and the gel liner. Over x-mas I'm going to visit the Bobbi Brown warehouse and store in Montclair, New Jersey. Definitely picking up some more of her great products there! Happy Monday! Pics via google.
besides fabulous hair?!? Going to a b-day bash tonight, and I know I want my hair to look like this (volume just refuse to stay with me).. And I don't know what to wear yet, but I'm opting for this nude/black/lace-combo dress that has a nice loose shape, perfect for a Friday night as I'm exhausted and want something comfortable. Ps. Went to a Bobbi Brown press meeting earlier today which was very inspiring. Will share some Bobbi Brown makeup wisdom later, stay tuned! Pic via google
I'll admit I need a couple more things to be camera-ready, but this highlighter and mascara will serve as the icing of the cake when I get ready for all the x-mas parties that are coming up. My girlfriends snap away like paparazzis, so I better look my best! The Chanel spring collection "Les Impressions de Chanel" is just my cup of beige/nude/low key tea.. Make sure to check it out when it hits stores early spring 2010!
It's a love/hate relationship. I do love Stockholm, but I also hate that my days there are always so hectic. Saw the La Redoute collection (which made me long for spring more than I already do), went shopping, had the lunch meeting with the photographer and stylist at Riche, then stayed there with Line and Stine until it was time to head to the airport again. The x-mas decorations over there put ours to shame - so pretty!
Going on another press trip to Sthlm with La Redoute to view the spring collection. Don't really have time to go at all with everything going on before x-mas, so to add more purpose to the trip I'm trying to meet up with a photographer and stylist who does spreads for my magazine every now and then. Treating them to lunch at Riche if we find time to meet. Looks like a nice place, so hopefully we will! Screencap from riche.se
