What if…

Picks for Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week is full on and I’m here with suitcases a little too optimistically put together temperature-wise, because Paris baby, you’re sunny but a tad chilly this time around. Still can’t get over that I left my most beloved knitwear back home, that goes for my coats too. Hence my wishlist above of beauties I forgot or I wishfully thinking were mine!

Suede coat by Frame Denim, gold & diamond earrings by Aurelie Bidermann, perfume by Tom Daxon, suede sneakers by Common Projects, wool knit by Victoria Beckham, wool skirt by Tibi, bag by Chloé.
All items available on NET-A-PORTER who offers same day delivery in NY/London/HK.

Sales picks up to 50%

Netaporter sales picks 16.06.2015 - The Northern Light

Summer sales has officially kicked off in Europe, just in time for summer to finally arrive, it strikes me every year how the sales conveniently coincides when the actual season begins, mind the lack of heat this year, now is the time to strike on those items you’ve been eyeing. Today Net-a-Porter’s summer sales kicked off with up to 50%, with additional designers and products to be added to the sales in the coming weeks. But unless you can allow yourself jumping mindless in the sales trolley, think a few steps further and invest in pieces that you wanna slip into right now but also carries you into next season and further. The latter explains my sales picks of today, mind the preach, but forward thinking has become my mantra (at least most of the time…). Happy sales shopping!

Denim jacket by Chloé, beach towel by Toteme, bikini by Missoni, twill shorts by Acne Studios, canvas bag by Victoria Beckhambracelet by Marnisuede pumps by Jimmy Choo, leather jewellery box by Smythson. (From 30 to 50% off)

The perfect block…

miu miu suede sandal 1

Finding the perfect block heeled sandal hasn’t been the easiest of tasks despite the block parades this season. Not being a fan of too bulky heels in general this little sandal by Miu Miu is my absolute favourite in stores right now. Simple and clean, works with everything, with the perfect block heel and height, there’s certainly no wiggling ahoy.
Yours for £365 and you’ll find them here. (In patent nude here).

Favourite Shirt…

ganni shirt

After years of having to tune into men’s departments for the perfect shirt, brands from high and low finally got around a few years back and understood that the female specimen opted for the same fit and look, but just a little more neatly feminine fitted in the right areas.

Danish mid-market brand Ganni, recently launched a small mannish shirt collection in cotton and silk with the perfect fit for a reasonable penny, starting from £90 and you’ll find them here.

Faye Mini

Chloe Faye Mini

Chloé has certainly stepped up with this seasons handbags and Miss Faye (previous post), has got an irresistible little sister, the Faye mini. Doesn’t fit your phone though, but roomy enough for cards and other small necessities, the perfect all-round-mini with just the right amount of flare for all occasions. Fits perfectly cross body but I’m gonna wear mine as a bum bag too. Sorry Celine, this is the reason we never happened bag-wise this season.

Faye mini is flying off shelves as we speak, comes in various colours of suede and python, starting from £440, and you can find it here and here.

Lace-up T’s

A favourite detail this season on such as basic as a T-shirt is the lace-up, which works so perfectly well with all things denim and adds a little springy flare, and gosh do some of us need it right now…

Mayla Stockholm


Though the world has fallen for the nordic minimalism and effortlessness recent years, it’s can be hard for Scandinavian brands to break through in todays jungle of international brands, unless they have something unique to offer and attractive price points, but that’s also what some of them do best, catering the mid market. Brands like Acne Studios, Dagmar and Day Birger et Mikkelsen have established themselves internationally by filling the gap between high street and luxury levels by offering great quality price points.

But there’s a new girl in town, Mayla Stockholm (www.mayla.se), founded by former model Marlene Abraham, that caught my eye this last year. Offering something not so typical in Scandinavian terms, cool femininity with an edge, like beautiful neat feminine silk blouses and dresses, finely knitted silk jumpers, mini boot flared trousers and culottes with the best of fits, ticking the mid market price range without compromising quality. Watch out for Mayla’s AW15-16 raw denim pieces, favourite denims of mine come fall 2015.

Micro Monsters…

fendi micro monsterNot that I’m lacking sense of humour or take fashion too serious, in fact rather the opposite, but I’ve never felt the urge expressing it through my own personal style. However exceptions can be made, and if I wanted to splurge on something rather wild that wouldn’t tick any of my normally sensible boxes(!), it would be the new seasons micro monster baguette by Fendi.
Perhaps I could justify that my little girl would borrow it? The little monsters come in green, yellow and coral, yours for £930 and can be pre-ordered here.

Updated Levi’s 501

Levi's 501-Net-a-Porter

Who doesn’t love a pair of “mum-jeans”, and I dare to say that none does it better than good old Levi’s. The iconic 501 will now come with a few adjustments, straighter in the waist, smaller in the seat and a more tapered fit, which to me sounds even better. You’ll find the new capsule collection in 3 different washes exclusively at Net-a-Porter on 2’nd of March, add that to your calendar!

It’s Black Friday!!!
Celebrating a season of sales shopping and great retail offers with some of my favourite picks out there. My best sales shopping tip is to invest in classic timeless high quality pieces that could end up being staples in your wardrobe for seasons ahead, and avoid the trap of too-on-trend-at-the-moment pieces, though it can be very tempting. Think ahead and keep next season in mind, happy shopping gals!
