Too cold to function


It's really very simple; I'm too cold to function. Outside. Lounging inside, charging the battery on the camera, eating gingerbread cookies and listening to music; wearing a sheer body from BikBok, sheer blouse via Nelly.com, super-flared high-waisted pants from Vero Moda (cirka '98) and a hat from H&M. I honestly meant to go to this event down at Grünerløkka, and I got as far as the mailbox - but I changed my mind and went back inside.

I'm the biggest fan I've got right now

I'm totally freaking myself out with this knitting-addiction right now. I guess I'm on a streak - I just can't quit. So, I made these shorts. Kind of like the others, but different. I added a little bow on the side to make it a bit more girly and interesting; mostly because I had some leftover yarn from my last DIY-project. It looks all kinds of awesome, if I can say so myself! The difference between these shorts, and the others, is that I knitted it a bit more tightly - which naturally caused a higher number of ruffles. It's also a bit shorter in the waist as well; which wasn't completely intentionally - but I decided to just go with it.I'm wearing DIY knit shorts, faux-fur jacket from Stradivarius, Paris-tee from Cubus, tights from Lindex, scarf from Divided, vintage belt and shoes via DNA.

Last November

So, I stole this idea from Maren, as I too thought it would be fun to see what I was wearing exactly one year ago! I was sporting an all black ensemble consisting of a Forever21 lace detailed dress, KappAhl blazer, Cubus velvet leggings and GoJane booties. It's weird, because I'm actually going through one of those black periods now as well! These boots are still one of my favorite pair of shoes, I just never seem to get tired of them.

The very last shot I took in Stockholm is truly a memory for life. Carmen was just sitting there, calm and wonderful – when she looked straight at me and I got this amazing shot.

Lindex Fashion Experience

As I might have mentioned; Stockholm was kind of awesome! Story Hotel was located in the middle of Stockholm at Stureplan, and once we were settled in our delicious rooms - we kicked off the trip by dining at the exclusive Riche restaurant. Lindex PR and Press Project Executive Filippa chose the restaurant, where a gastronomical menu consisting of everything from scallops to deer chutney was very beautifully served. We laughed a lot, drank some bubbly treats and beer; while we made fun of each other, talked about ourselves, life, blogging and of course Lindex. Norwegians and Swedes are like that; always making fun of each others differences - much like Americans and Canadians, I guess. So, there we were: five very different girls having a wonderful time - the awesome Filippa, beautiful Ulrikka from Lindex in Göteborg, extraordinary Marie-Amanda from Norway, sweet Louise from Uddevalla and myself.

We walked back to the hotel stuffed with gourmet foods and anticipations of the next day; and were supposed to go straight to bed – but somehow I ended up taking a walk to the nearest kiosk. Swedish candy, or godis as they call it, is kind of famous - and I just had to get me some yummies, despite the fact that it was midnight.

.......

The following morning I went down to breakfast with Louise at 8.30, and met Marie outside around 9.30 to take a taxi over to Hammarby Sjöstad where the photoshoot with Carmen Kass was. While the make-up artists did their thing with Carmen and the photographers finished setting the lights, we took some time to document our wearings. The location was just great, an old warehouse with large windows - which gave us this beautiful display of natural light.
We talked to the photographers, stylists and other creatives – which were all very curious about our blogging lives and perspectives; while we got to experience the talented Carmen on set. She is so professional and even more gorgeous up close. How come you never see models laugh like they do on set? It’s so refreshing! The photographer, and former art director, was amazing; and totally hyping Carmens work – dancing, complimenting and directing like a true pro. We also had the pleasure of enjoying an open coffee-bar and other refreshing drinks, as well as an amazing lunch buffet with fish, salads and focaccia.
The whole experience was very inspiring. The girls and I had a wonderful time! I’m so amazed by how much appreciation bloggers get in Sweden; while here in Norway we’re more of a.. menace, I guess. The result of the shoot was pretty awesome, and everyone gathered around the screen to see the result during the final outfit shoot.We rounded up an amazing day with a visit to the Lindex office where we got a small preview of news to come, a little gift and did some shopping on main-street afterwards. I can’t thank you guys or Lindex enough for this experience; it was just great!

A different kind of story

Stockholm was amazing, the Story Hotel was amazing, Lindex was amazing and Carmen Kass was amazing! I have lots to tell, behind-the-scenes pictures to show you and sweet bloggers to share, and as you probably can see; it was all amazing! But, first you guys have to (kind of) see the gorgeous hotel-room Lindex gave me! Look at the walls! So pretty, romantic and very vintage-y bohemian chic! I need the name of their decorator, seriously. Just delicious! If you're ever in Stockholm; this is the place to stay! Not too bad a spot to take some different kind of pictures, either - and the coffee was pretty good.

Stockholm

I'm going to Stockholm today, because you guys were totally awesome and voted for me in the Lindex Street Stories competition this fall. I get to meet a certain supermodel and go backstage on the shoot, as well as enjoy a free over-night stay and dinner! I'm really looking forward to it, but I'm nervous as well. I'm not very good with people, as I get super awkward and such. Oh, well, wish me luck - it's going to be great!

So, do you come here often?

Blue is indeed one of my favorite colors, especially deep ones like this. I had some trouble styling this beauty, though - mostly because it makes such a strong statement itself. I didn't want to go with another regular tights/top outfit - so I layered it up with a ruffle-dress, t-shirt and a vintage belt to make it more interesting.
Grade-wise, I'd have to give this Daydream Nation jacket a two out of five possible hearts. The spikes are just too much and I'm probably a bit weird, but I like an uneven number of buttons on my clothes. The blue knitting is of course really appealing to me and it is comfortable: but, it's heavy on the top - which makes it glide down my back. I'm not into complex clothing, I like to keep it simple and I prefer not having to constantly straighten my clothes every five minutes.

That said; I want to thank you guys SO much for all the wonderful compliments on my DIY high-waisted knit mini-shorts! I'm really glad you like it, especially since I've never created something like that before! Now I'm even more eager to continue exploring with different DIY projects!

DIY: high-waisted knit shorts

I'm so proud of this DIY! I knitted the whole thing yesterday evening, and added the finishing touches today. It's funny; because the only thing I've finished knitting before is a scarf, and I've never actually worn it. I couldn't wait to try this one on, though - and skipped my make-up so that I could take pictures of it while it was still daylight. I love it! What do you think? I didn't have a recipe, I just kind of went for it - and that's probably why it turned out so well. I'm no good with recipes and such.
I'm wearing a DIY high-waisted knit shorts, Cubus tights, thrifted top, Vila asymmetric cardigan, Cubus knitted sweater and Roots boots.
