While up in Oslo earlier this week I got a strong reminder of what real winter is about, I once was used to arctic weather, but -19 raw Oslo air, honestly, it was really painful and not very surprisingly the streets were almost empty of people. I wore my duvet winter parka every day, which I guess is the only way to stay warm along with furry boots, except one day, when I bravely stepped out in this cape, sometimes layering of wool work as well, at least if you just rush in and out between stores and cafées.
A few days ago I had a bad experience in one my beloved areas of London. Having someone suddenly jumping on you from behind grabbing what they can may scare anyone to bits, but my initial reaction was anger(!), I got a hit in with my umbrella and ran after the creep who jumped into a nearby building. After getting away with nothing more than my phone, and hopefully problems with the police, I hope he thought it was worth it. Now in the aftermath I’m relieved it ended there, it’s insane how far some are willing to go, but lesson learned is that it could happen to anyone when you least expect it, so stay safe, tuck your phone away and grab your beloved handbag a little harder!
I sometimes get asked if I plan outfits beforehand, and honestly I don’t, which again is the reason why my travel luggage is heavily overweight as I practically bring along everything on the front shelves of my wardrobe. I’ve always dressed in this organised chaotic way where whatever I feel like on the day slips on. The result however sometimes end up being a complete mismatch of pieces I like when I’m on the run, everything but too planned and “matchy matchy”, just the way I like it!
Btw, I’ve got these new maternity skinny jeans by J Brand, with a super low comfortable elastic panelled waist and otherwise the perfect fit like J Brand’s usually are, genius! Otherwise knit by IRO, new wool coat Hofmann Copenhagen, boots Isabel Marant, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.
As I often look like this on busy days I’m in a hurry or on the run I might as well include it here, flats, jeans and a good knit, nothing special at all, perhaps an overdose of greys, but on some days that does it for me!
Fashion month is over for now and I’m back in London where there’s finally time to unpack my suitcases instead of repacking them. Suddenly everyday-things like having breakfast with morning news on TV, chilling with good reads in my sofa, cooking, not to mention sleeping in my own bed are the things I appreciate doing right now, home sweet home.
I had a blast in Paris though and since the weather decided to be wonderfully warm and sunny on my first day there I sported bare legs in my hairy new boots. I wore knit by IRO, skirt (found as dress here) and boots (similar IM model here) by Isabel Marant, bag by Proenza Schouler, sunnies by Tom Ford, letter earring by MariaFrancescaPepe, watch Tagheuer, bracelets by Cooee, Hermes and Monica Vinader.
Ok first, this is not in Paris right now(!). These images are 2 weeks back in NY, when sporting minis’ and shorts were the natural choice cause of the heat. Again a favourite combo of mine, max+mini and a fabulous pair of shoes that I was so happy to come across over the pond. Sadly one of them came faulty so I returned them, and the staff couldn’t find me another pair. So shoes for one day, well, sometimes I like to think that things happen for a reason, though they were 2 beautiful things, and I loved the mirrored heels.
Dressing the last month has been a little challenging, you know when you’re at a stage when it’s not really clear to people if it’s actually a bump you’re carrying or if you just had jolly days with food. Well, what to do, thankly I love maxi silhouettes and oversized jumpers but last week I dropped it all and left home like I normally would without “that” in mind.
I’m back in London after a few days constantly on my feet, today and next few days I will take my time to rest, and go through tons of images and impressions from the last couple of weeks, before I turn my nose to Paris later this week.
Sorry for not posting many outfit images but they will come for sure, like this one about a week too late, when I headed for the Acne show, wearing a mix of Acne and others. This wrap skirt is by the way is one of my favourite purchases recently, the rusty green colour screams fall, and since I bought it one size up than I normally do I can probably wear it all through fall and with tights when it gets colder.
And oh, say hello to my new patent boots, a purchase from NY, with a perfectly fierce pointy toe, a little mod’s, just the way I like it.
Good morning folks! First I’d like to say a big thank you to all your best wishes I received the other day, it’s been overwhelming, you’re simply the best!!!
London Fashion Week has come to an end and and moved on to Milan where I’ll be joining tomorrow for a couple of days, days are moving so fast and I’m wondering what happened with September so far, it kind of escaped me. Over the weekend in London we got our first taste of fall, the leaves have gone more yellow, and the breeze a little chillier, but as long as it’s wonderful bright and sunny there’s nothing to complain about right, just throw on a warmer jacket or knitwear and you’re sorted, love this time of year!
As you may know I love my eyewear, either it’s sunnies or spectacles, and when I spotted beauty Jessica Hart in the streets of NY rocking her embellished mini, black boots, the cutest bun ever and THE SUNNIES(!), I knew I’d found them, my new sunnies I mean! After wearing my good old beloved Ray Ban’s almost apart I’ve finally come across something similar, just a little bit more “blingy”, but still has the right attitude. These beauties are by Tom Ford, named Henry and you’ll find them here.
Happy Sunday everyone!
Everything that involves Tom Ford right now is super hot and by that I don’t only mean the man himself. These are shots for the February issue of Interview where Jac Jagaciak models some of Tom Ford’s pieces from his Spring 2011 womenswear collection, photographed by Craig McDean. Even if I feel pretty tired of animal prints right now I might feel like jumping into something again soon.

For years I put aside my glasses I need in front of the screen convincing myself I didn’t need any of it but yesterday after hours in front of my Mac I had to dig them out again and didn’t feel very cool. They are not that bad though, designed Armani but after seeing these images of Tom Ford’s spring collection I feel it’s time for an update.
Yesterday the first images leaked out from Tom Ford’s Spring 2011 womenswear show and the only photographer attending was Terry Richardson. Mr. Ford used celebrities as models and muses and tailored every look for each one of them, among the models where Lauren Hutton, Beyonce, Joan Smalls, Stella Tennant, Liya Kebede, Daphne Guinness and more.
