I simply adore Bianco's new campaign. How to double your collection? Go gay. It's simply brilliant! And it also brings up a controversial teme and some people might find it shocking. It kinda reminds me of what Berlusconi used to do for Benetton. Brilliand Brilliant Brilliant

I really, really don’t like this shoes. Doc Martins, made slightly iconic by Luella and fashion bloggers all over the world, not to mention Agyness Devyn and Courtney Love’s love for this boots. The shoes that once was so indie, is, together with the indie-rock for that matter, not that indie any more.
I must say, in commercials and in the shoots where they are styled and posed they look cool, but in real life, when people actually wear them, it works out well for so few. It just looks all wrong and the shoes are so ugly, but of course there are those who manage.
The whole icon- it shoes thing among the fashion bloggers just bugs me. Hello, the shoes are ugly for Christ sake! Especially those in white, pink and other bright colours. If you absolutely have to wear them, do wear them in black or dark red. I don’t like the laces and height of the boot and I absolutely hate the sole.
Once when Courtney Love wore them and Øystein Greini skated in them they looked supercool and in Courtney’s manner, kinder whore’ish and grunge. And then the famous it-girls bloggers with their own style started to post pictures of them wearing the shoes, and viola, I realized that it just don’t work in real life. By all means, it-girls of the fashion blogs, you have an amazing style. I just don’t like the shoes you iconize. Ish, ish ish. Wear clown shoes instead, they are way much funnier.
School is out no more. The last few days has been totally stressful, getting up early in the morning, half sleeping at school and then work and finally, concerts. The unknown band Mellifluous Lunacy had a release party for fore their new ep "too bee" on Wednesday. I went with a couple of friends and it was great. You can listen to their music her. Yesterday the town held a festival called Jugendfst and that too was great. Lods of drunk grown ups who didn’t really care about the music. But Dum Dum Boys were brilliant, it they held better concerts during the 90's when they were really big, those must have been incredible, because last night was pretty damn good. Oh, well. This summer has been amazing! One of the best. I will never forget the beautifulness of Santorini and I still miss the food, the mood of the festivals and the picnics in the park. I have meet a lot of new people, who, unfortinatly all seems too be moving away from town this fall. It has all gone too fast and we haven't done anything of what we were supposed to do. I'm a bit sad about it, but still, this summer has been wicked.
I really love H&M. I seriously can walk into ant of their stores, at any time and find something adorable I just have to have. It's the one shop I leave most money at during the year. Not only are most of their items smashing, it's also on budget and the quality is real good. And no, you can make it to so much more than mainstream bik bok, it's all about the combinations and the accessories. This season they go for dark colours, seasonably for the time a year. (Personally I love dark colours during winter, you wear all this light colours during spring and summer, so when fall comes around it feels good with a change). Grey, which seems to be the new black, black, stripes, cardigans, flowery, skirts and A-formed dresses and purple tights is key-items for the coming up season. It's not innovative, but still it works pretty well if you ask me.

"Audrey Hepburn had it. Grace Kelly had it. Louise Canova does not." While wandering the floors of my Greek hotel, I discovered a mini library where former guest had left books and magazines for new visitors to borrow. The book elegance by Kathlee Tessaro immediately caught my eye and from that moment and until the book was finished, i read. With quotes like "Being beautiful is no grantee of happiness in this world. Stive instead for elegance, grace and style" and "We don't dress for who we are, so much as who we would like to be", this book is simply genius and perfect as late summer reading. Well, it's no secret that the book never returned to the hotel library. Instead it is placed in my bookshelf, ready to be read once again.
