Thakoons masterpieces

These shoes are so amazing!!!! I got a blanket from India full of little mirrors, my mom brought it from me when I was little and she had been travelling around India. I have always loved it, the sparkly but elegant way, the tiny mirrors sparkle is really beautiful and that is exactly how Thakoon (my total fashion sweetheart) has managed to make these shoes! They are sparkly and really funky, but the form is so elegant and simple, I love them!

West Side Story

The Royal Danish Opera has this season chosen to play Jerome Robbens West Side Story. I went to see it tonight, with my dad. It was so good! The music was amazing and the costumes, scene and dances where just perfect! The only bad thing I can say is that the ballet version got a happy ending, and I totally prefer when it ends Shakespeare style with the two lovers dying. The other thing that wasn’t so good was that it was to short but that is also a compliment, I was not bored a second!

Let's shoot some pheasants and wear some hats

This weekend I was invited to a old manor for a hunt. The manor is an old building from 1554.
It´s really beautiful and the house is so cozy decorated! Every year there is a hunt where you come saturday night for a dinner. Next morning there is a big breakfest and then everybody go hunting, then there is a big lunch, a hunt again and then thé time!
It was my first hunt! My familie has been doing it a lot but I have never really felt like it, I was really surpriced, it´s so much fun!

Elie Saab and Hermés

When I was in Paris, I went to the last day of Paris Fashion Week! It was so much fun! I went to 2 shows: Elie Saab and Hermés.
The whole fashion week spirit is amazing, everybody are so well dressed, there are all those bloggers and style scouts running around taking pictures and you see the same crew at all the shows. I had a really cute vintage dress on but I got no pictures... maybe you can find it on a street style blog!

The Elie Saab show was beautiful! The dresses are so much more prettier in action than on the photos. The materials are just floating with the body who wears it. The colours were inspired by the desert from the blue sky to the sparkly sand in the night. The music was house music and the runway was very simple: black sparkly "sand". On the front row Dita von Teese and Nelly Furtado watched the show and the back row I did! The only bad thing I can tell about the show is that is was really inspired by Balmain, but well, you can´t win them all. If I went to the Oscars I would wear one of Elie Saabs dresses!

The Hermés show was really, really well produced! There was grass everywhere and you could really smell it! So nice! The music was a mix of new hits and the comments and sounds from a tennis match. 2 of the models started playing tennis in the background and followed Jean Paul Gaultier when he got his applaud after the show. The collection was really good! The colours where very light with a bit of dark blue, black and brown. It was very inspired of tennis and the fabrics where a mix of light silk, cotton and soft lether. I really liked the bags they were really big, so some of the models dropped them on the runway.

I´m moving to Paris

I AM MOVING TO PARIS! Finally! It´s taken such a long time finding something to do in Paris, but now I´m just going to jump in the cold water and take things as they come. I got a tiny studio, its really cute, like a little dollhouse!
So, the only thing I really need is internet! Its crazy how much it matters, I have really found out how addicted I am!
