Johnny Depp meets punksteam culture as a Victorian female vampire. I  wouldn't mind.


Until I finnally decided to get hold of one of these coveted sweaters by HOPE, they were all sold out. Online and in stores.
It was quite a bummer I must admit.
So, I arrived in Kristiansand some time ago and yesterday me and Mom took a little strolling round around town. Firmly decided not to buy anything we went from shop to shop, just looking.
But, there it was, my higlky coveted sweater, only one left, in my size and in wanted color.
How could I say no??And who would??
Well, I didn't, and now I am broke but definitely satisfied with my purchase.

Have a great day Loves!

Photocourtsey of Vogue Italia and Net-a-porter

The sweet old panda has taken a trip from the zoo, to the cinemas (who doesn't remember Kung fu version??) to the new it print of the season. It's cute, it's amusing and it's ultimate -look-at-me  print, especially when worn ' h to t' as a suit (whole suit HAS made it's comeback this year, just look at Au jour le jour).Although not what you would typicly imagine me in, the cut of that shirt and pants is sharp  enough to balance this ultra-cute panda print and azure blue color.
Anyways, if I could in any way justify lace sandals when it has juts started snowing I would be the first in the line for the outrages but so obsessive heels by Jimmy Choo+Rob Pruitt  at Net-a-porter.
My ultimate must have and the panda in the lining just might justify my to-get or not-to-get obsession....
Isn't it depressive to be looking forward to spring when, the first snow has just arrived...?

Thank God I have Monday's off.Before I start to pack for Kristiansand I have a morning  ritual of a man: breakfast, coffee and papers. I love a good fashion magazine that you can actually read, opposed to just starring at pictures (which is also nice, but we all need a change from time to time?) so ACNE PAPER and THE GENTLEWOMAN are definitely down this lane. 
Fabulouse interview with Fran Lebowitz in AP and I loved the spread about Leila McAlister (a serisouly good inside info on where to eat in London).

Have a happy Monday everyone!

I was at the cinema lst night and on the agenda was none other than Daniel Craig and 'Skyfall'. 
I am a complete sucker for James Bond- especially since Craig joined the pack.
So here I paired thigh high split skirt with a college sweater and ankle boots. Kind of relaxed take on Saturday nights outfi, especially with freezing temperatures we have had lately.
A pop of bright yellow just perfectly balances all black combo.

Have a great Sunday, loves!

I am wearing  Givenchy sweater, leather skirt by  by Malene Birger, Acme boots and Marc by Marc Jacobs purse.

So here is my today's.
As you can see neons and silver leather paired with structured coat is somewhat futuristic take on minimalism but it can be worn today, no need to wait for tomorrow. 
I dug out my last years coat from H&M Trend that I bough on sale and received so many compliments for it (that even I was embarrassed). Structured cocoon coat in really perfect wool fabric to hold desired shape has been one of my bargains last year. Quite satisfied with the fact that  cocoon is in this year as well.
I love the contrast of acid green and greay so this outfit was an obvious one for my part.
And I almost forgot! I also got a pair of new boots from ACNE with (touch of futurism and) structured heel, which is chunky so that I don't look like Bambi on ice (as it is snowing here) yet it's not a wedge.
So, so satisfied with them, I have to say.

 Heels and sweater from ACNE, skirt from Fillipa K, coat from H&M Trend, sunnies are Ray Ban and Purse is Marc by Marc Jacobs.

So here is what we (me and Sara) wore yesterday. I still havn't complitely recovered from the flu, so I was all about simple, cozy, warm and oversized yesterday.
Sara wore this amazing sweater that had such an insanely amazing fit to it! If I remember it right it was a slighlty cacoon shape with crewneck in this beautiful powdery blue.
Anyways, we met up for a coffee after the pressday and had a really great time. 
So hoping for a soon randez-vous back in Oslo again.

I am wearing Burberry Prorsum coat, 3.1 Phillip Lim Interasia sweater and Diesel jeans.
Sara is wearing Vila coat and vintage sweater.

Today I took one day trip to Oslo for pressday at headquarters of THIS IS PR. Lovely location to have a press presentation at. So here are some snaps from it. First two of the talented Norwegian designer Christian Ledang and oh, yes that is latex A-line dress in bubblegum pink which is on my want to badly list, as is the blue latex skirt on the fourth picture.
Third is of shoes that are part of BikBok SS13 worn here by Sara Strand. The fourth picture is from the little styling contest where we were supposed to style an outfit, and tag it in Instagram. 
So here is mine: Christina Ledang skirt and overlay, BikBok shirt, DNA heels and Inwear clutch (doubled up). PS: Don't forget to follow me on Instagram ( ila030) as you can see more of my outfits and everyday life. 

The glasses underneath are filled with vitamins made of cucumber and lime. I think that the recepies are from the book ''Raw Food''- which I tend to get for myself.
Thank you fro the great time everyone!




So, here it is!
Bigmouth as I am it was so hard keeping this from everyone (only my bf knew) but now it's finally out!
I am so, so , so, soooooooooooooo ridiculously grateful and flattered.
I guess when acknowledgment comes from something you admire and love it really warms ones heart.
I never dreamed of feature in Net-a-porter or  their magazine, and now its here and I almost fainted when I saw it.!
And I love it!

Once again I am throwing pictures at you - I never was much of an editor at the end.
So, this is one  of the three shoots that I did when we were staying at the cabin  last weekend.
And yepp, I am not leaving Isabel Marant cabin in the woods or not.
Actually, my inspiration behind the shoot and the casual style I have been sporting lately is no other that Dean Winchester- the character from the 'Supernatural' series with waxed leather jackets, toned down colors, knits and cowboy boots.
And the style fits perfectly into the landscape, doesn' it?

Oh yes and I realy am sorry for not posting, but I have been sick and really tired since Monday.
I am wearing two set of jackets by Isabel Marant, Diesel jeans, Jbrand cashmere knit and Donna Piu boots, sunnies are Illesteva.


Ok, how awesome aren't these?? Not to fussy, yet a perfect statement  Right now I literary hate myself for not getting hold of them as they are completely sold out now. 
I wouldn't be able to decide which one of them to get, but it would probably be the one in Silver and Rose Gold.If anybody knows where I can still get them, PLEASE let me know.
In the meanwhile I am lying in bed sick.

Liberty Ross for Alexander Wang ss13. A divine combo.


Ok, sorry for not posting in ages, but I was away fro the weekend. We stayed at my mother-in-low's cabin, but for some reason internet was out -so not so much blogging on my side.
Anyways, here is something I wore at the opening of 'Bølgen&Moi' on Thursday evening.
I am really inspired by the Dries van Noten SS13 for the time being so I am for the time being channeling my inner Dries- with plaid shirts and 3/4 skirts.
I just picked up this skirt from H&M and I have to say that this is one of the better investments I have done this season. It really works well with both sandals, flats and boots if the weather requires it .
Paired with a fur sweater or high neck polo for the chillier days.
I'll post more photos from the event later on:)

I am wearing skirt by H&M, vintage shirt, Isabel Marant pumps and by Malene Birger purse.

 Now, I have always been a fan of military style,from anime down to Altuzarra a/w 12 High collared coats,shoulder marks and drama  have always been down my lane. So, it is chilly outside as it usually is in October and I used the opportunity to  borrow the coat from Ch (this IS actually men's coat in size 52 from H&M some seasons ago or so. ).
I wanted to make it and a bag a center piece so I paired it with faded black jeans and pointy heels, the hair in proper anime style is floating in the wind( now I just need a bad ass robot, or a space army).

P.S nomination for Vixen Blog Awards has started and I would be tremendously happy if you could nominate me, also by nominating you can win Canon IXUS 510 by nominating.
Just follow the link above and on the right sidebar you'll find the 'Nominate' button.

Coat is H&M, shirt (underneath) is Celine, jeans by Diesel, heels by Zara, Georg Jensen watch and Manual bag

Take Care!

If I had unlimited budget this would be on it's way now:Acne lizard embossed jacketProenza Schouler skirtProenza Schouler embroidered sweatshirtAlexander Wang Kamila heelsNancy Gonzalez purseBurberry gloves and Voluspa Elysian Garden


I was totaly into military trend, partially because I always thought it looked cool, partially because my love is in the Norwegian Navy. So, today I tried to capture my outfit wearing this to-die- for military frock, however, courtesy of my remote control I got nothing.
Anyways a peak into my today- I spent the morning reading British Vogue and not so surprisingly stopped at 'best internet stores' section! Afterwards I picked my mail and guess what came in today!Can't wait to show it to you as the dress both as a top and a dress is a serious killer!

Isabel Marant ss13 available at MODA OPERANDI for couple more days. Marant has done it again in form of wrapped leather skirts and floaty silk shirts with laces in front  Actually this collection made me nostalgic as I recall my cousin having a similar style shirt 10 years ago or so, that I loved borrowing from her closet. it was the prettiest pink with leather laces but it was the coolest late '90s had to offer. Or was it early 2000? Anyways I have set my heart to get both of the above and the coolest belt ever made!
The best part about whole Moda Operandi shopping is that you actually split the amount in two, so everything seems so much more available!
A least in my head...

 Not so over- the- top happy with temperatures dropping so fast. However it gave me an excuse to dig out these old Stella Mccartney boots from some seasons ago, and with thigh highs making a little comeback this was a perfect choice.  So I am still going for summerish combos while I still can, as someone had mentioned SNOW?!  
Oh, well...Enough with the weather forecast.
So, I have to say that this Givenchy sweater was one of better investments we (note that it is we, not I as the sweater belongs actually to Ch) have made.
What impressed me the most is the cut and the shape of it, as it is so well made around the shoulders and the neck.
Perfect pairing with Mccartney frill skirt, as it really gives it the edge and a touch of boyish charm for a dark turn on the sporty silhouette.
  My new love, for all intentions and purpose.

I am wearing Givenchy sweaterStella Mccartney skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs purse and Stella Mccartney thigh high boots


posted on: Saturday, October 13, 2012 this cool little thing from Alexander Wang .
I have tried it on in Paris, but couldn't decide. However it has stood the test of time as I am still thinking of it, so I have finally decided to order it.
Now, it just needs t arrive.

In my case-no.

Great weather today! Sunny and crisp and cold, with the scent of winter merging with the wonderful smell of fresh pastries from the bakery! Autumn at it's best, I'll say.
Anyways layering is much required with the temperatures dropping, but at least I can wear sandals, as long as it's dry on the ground.So, I have actually layered two jackets to keep me warm today (slightly drastic it may seem), it's actually a great tip of as the leather jacket really gives the edge AND it protects you from the wind. 
Underneath, it's all about wool and leather, or rather cashmere and leather.
And of course sunnies!

I am wearing jackets by Isabel Marant, Sweatre is Marc by Marc Jacobs, skirt is silver leather Fillipa K and heels are Alexander Wang. Sunnies are RayBan.

I have been looking for a perfect cropped top and this one might just be it! Seriously, it has been ridiculous how hard it is to find simple, minimalistic ones without lace or paprika on it(although I wouldn't mind the paprika one when off to Sicily next year! -yupp hooked on Sicily). 
Not so sure with on the skirt though, although it is gorgeous, slightly skeptic if it works on me..
