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).

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!

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.

Great news for your wallets ahoy!

picks 19.06.2014

We’ve got high summer ahead of us, but instead of focusing on great summery sales bargains I’m rather eyeing new season’s drops in stores, and everything transitional pre-fall. A girl gotta think ahead and for me hounds-tooth it is, along with these other picks that could carry me through summer too!
