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).

Black Friday

Black Friday Picks-The Northern Light by Hedvig Opshaug

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!

Anderson, Suede bag by Saint Laurent18K white gold earring by Carolina Bucci, Mohair blend sweater by Saint Laurent, Shirt by Maison Martin Margiela, Sunglasses by Gucci, Ankle boots by Gianvito Rossi, Leather gloves by Mario Portolano, Wool skirt by Carven, Diamond and gold necklace by Sarah Chloe, Leather pants by Acne Studios.

My few days in Miami went so quickly so I didn’t have any time posting from there but I had a lovely time indeed. On the first day we were surprised with heavy rain so we decided to explore the shopping facilities in town and ended up at Bal Harbour Shops, a shopping mall with excellent shopping and small restaurants. I usually don’t fancy malls but this one was in fact a beautiful one, highly recommended.
The last day we enjoyed the rays by our pool at Delano on South Beach, lunching with friends and boom, the fairy tale was over this time around, but it was a damn good one.

Now, time to catch up on real life, but first a highly missed noodle soup in London’s China town!
