The jumpsuit

Jumpsuit picks-Hedvig Opshaug

It’s the season for Christmas drinks and parties and a personal favourite of mine that works for any occasion is the jumpsuit. Bless the LBD, but I find a wrap jumpsuit with a little 70′s flare a tad more chic, and eliminates skin baring in chilly receptions. You’ll find plenty of options out there right now, but my personal favourite is this creation by Diane Von Furstenberg, the all-round winner and officially added to my wish list, along with these other new picks in stores, yum!

Jersey wrap jumpsuit by DVF (£520) (also here), Leather clutch by Saint Laurent (£710), Watch by Isabel Marant (£430)Diamond earring by Loren Stewart (£250), Sandals by Jimmy Choo (£450).

Alexander Sprekenhus

Alexander Sprekenhus-1

I’m not a beauty junkie, and don’t try on new products very often, but this organic beauty line based on Argan Oil by Norwegian Alexander Sprekenhus are new favourites of mine and deserves a shout out. Not only will I recommend them as brilliant products that really give your hair a hydrating boost, they also tick the boxes regarding design and price level too, thumbs up!
Hydrating Shampoo (£22), Hydrating Mask (£30), Hair Styling Elixir (£28).

Celine Resort 2015

Celine Pre Spring 2015Celine.com

Phoebe Philo continues what she does the best, another pre-collection that feels fresh, new, but still has what has become so very Celine. The french house have lately kept their pre-collections under seal, and the image release of  this highly anticipated Resort 2015 collection coincides with the release of the ads fronted by what has become Celine in house model Daria Werbowy. Feeling inspired anyone, I surely do.

Accessory trend this season, the single statement earring, we’ve seen it for a while and we love it right. Be ready to embrace the hoops too, my personal favourites, and more easy to come across if you don’t want to dig deep into your Celine pockets.

Denim + Slingbacks

outfit picks 09.10.2014

I love a denim+slingbacks combo, and these specimen by Dolce & Gabbana might possible find their way to my shoe collection at some point. Not that I would’ve mind any of the other beauties here either, then my Thursday outfit would have been solved!

70′s nod

Louis Vuitton ss15Louis Vuitton ss15, images Style.com

After several weeks of models strutting on SS15 runways, presentations, energy and mood in different cities, either observed closeup or from afar, there’s especially one trend that over shines everything, the references to the 70′s.

From my personal point of view Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton won the nod to the 70′s with his typical stamp and forward looking eyes. And if there’s something I’ll be sporting very soon may it be high waisted A-line skirts paired with fitted blouses or turtlenecks, shades of brown, and don’t forget to bring the velour out, yum!

Picks

transitional outfit-Northern Light

It’s time for transitional dressing again and while the weather still allows bare legs I would still choose to bring along something knitted. Tomorrow, Paris is on the menu and I wouldn’t mind at all jumping into this total look, with the cashmere knit wrapped around my shoulders or waist, all new picks in stores!

Wrap dress by Isabel Marant, sunnies by Christian Dior, cashmere knit by Jil Sander, diamond pave ring by Lynn Ban, bag by The Row, and calf-hair boots by Acne.

Holzweiler – The perfect scarf?

Holzweiler wool & cashmere scarves

I’ve always been on the hunt for the perfect chunky scarf that has the soft cashmere touch but still has enough hold not to fall flat around the neck. Well, I’ve found them in my motherland Norway, by Holzweiler Agency, blends of wool and cashmere, made in Italy, and comes in a range of sizes, prints and and colours, in the pocket friendly price range of €109-€135. I’ll start wrapping mine over my shoulders with a belt ala Burberry as soon as temperatures allow it, yum!

Ryan Storer

ryan storer

I’m personally a big fan of Ryan Storer’s new collection which involves clean, bold, yet understated pieces with Swarovski pearls. Fine jewellery really is peaking at the moment, which also goes for their amounts of carats and price tags, but these pieces come more pocket friendly for sure. This Rhodium earring for instance is yours for £160 and you’ll find it here.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Who would have thought, Anna Wintour is a sport, and along with so many others accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge, to support the ALS’s fund-raising that has gone viral this week. After being challenged by Gisele Bundchen and her own daughter Bee Shaffer, Wintour further on challenged Roger Federer and Dominic West, go Anna!

Altuzarra for Target

Great news for your wallets ahoy! Joseph Altuzarra has teamed up with the US high-street chain Target with a capsule collection including some sleek, feminine, tailored Altuzarra pieces and accessories that oozes power, starting from £25. My bet this collection will fly, available on Net-a-Porter in September.
