Lovely Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly, so beautiful and elegant and beats Marilyn Monroe any day if you ask me.

Sunday Walk

Yesterday we enjoyed a really lazy Sunday and decided to go for a walk in Pildammsparken in Malmö, even if the weather was grey I am glad we went as the colourful leafs more than made up for it.

Being a Sunday I am wearing no make-up and have not fixed my hair, so now you know what that looks like.

Frank is accessorising.



Even if it has been a rather mild autumn one still needs a wool-coat, mine is from Designers Remix and soon it will have to be coupled with a pair of long gloves and a scarf instead of my fur-collar. The skirt is from H&M and matches the leaves nicely and the scarf in my hair is from Tiger of Sweden.




Frank quite enjoyed the autumn leaves although she usually hates the outdoors.

MMM at H&M

More photos are released of Maison Martin Margiela at H&M, and I must say it is much more interesting than I thought judging from the first photos, I love the cape!

100 posts

This is my hundredth post, I started about 5 months ago and meant to give the blog three months to see how I liked it and I must say I have gotten rather fond of blogging.
It is a great outlet and exchange, and I am not ready to give up on it but will continue, I hope you will continue checking in now and then.

Another hype

Have you noticed the recent tendency to wear pants too long? I remember seeing it on the runway, and let's be honest, anything goes on the runway. But now it has been adopted into real life and I must say I am not fan, it makes people look like ponies.

Liebster Award

I was curious to see that pretty Juliette from Lavish Fiends had nominated me for a Liebster award, which I just discovered is an award to promote blogs with less than 200 followers, thank you!

I also took the liberty of copying the rules for participation from Juliette's blog:
 
1. Tell 7 things about yourself.
2. Answer 11 questions you have been asked by the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 7 bloggers for the award (by posting a comment for example).
4. Mention on your article the blogger who nominated you, the bloggers you chose to nominate and the 11 questions you want your nominees to answer.



7 things about myself:
1. I live in Sweden and I love all seasons, even winter, just not here in the south where it barely snows so I get so happy when it does.
2. I have been married for 8 (!) years next month but we are not planning to have children, our cranky bunny Frank is enough for us.
3. I have turned our guestroom into my walk in closet, which makes me feel like a shopaholic, but I make sure to wear all my clothes.
4. I love wearing heels even if I am 180 cm tall, and as I tend not to like the average heel height I usually end up with 4-5 inches.
5. I am an avid reader and a bibliophile so I am constantly running out of bookshelves, luckily I have a couple of extra shelves in the office.
6. I love baking and cooking, right now I am mostly into cooking French food and pastries.
7. I have a severe phobia about broken teeth, I can handle going to the dentist but I have nightmares about having cavities!

7 Questions from Juliette:

I/ What does your blog represent to you ?
My blog is an outlet, a way to share my interest with like-minded and get inspired by other bloggers. Especially with a boring day-job the blog is a welcome respite.

II/ Are you more of a “visual" blog or “textual“ blog ?
Visual definitely, I barely read texts on blogs myself but are mostly looking at photos, so I keep the text to a minimum.

III/ Where do you get your inspiration from ?
I read a lot, and that gets my imagination started and I love old films! otherwise there's of course Elle, Lula and fellow bloggers.
 
IV/ How would you define your style ?
It is hard to put a label on my style as it is a bit eclectic, but I hope I can say colourful chic?
 
V/ What type of readers are you targeting ?
I am not targeting anyone per se, just anyone who's interested in my posts. It is also a good way to keep in touch with friends and family all over the world, and my mum loves that she can keep track of me easily.

VI/ Who are your favorite models or fashion icons ?
I guess it is a bit of a cliche, but Elsa Schiaparelli and Coco Chanel, even if they hated each other. For contemporary persons I would say Elisa Nalin.

VII/ What is the handbag of your dreams ?
I just got my jumbo Chanel 2.55 a couple of months ago which I love dearly, and if I am dreaming why not say a Birkin bag in a bright colour!

On my wishlist

I would love this coat for winter, mind you the colour and sleeves are probably more suitable for Southern Europe.

Oktoberfest

Saturday it was time for our friends Emma and Casper's annual Oktoberfest, we came early to help set the place in order.
Ze beer.
Ze hostess.

 Ze outfit.
 Emma and I seized the opportunity to dance while we were laying the tables and decorating the room.
 Our host Casper making the starter.

The chefs, one of them in drag.
I met Super Mario!


Johannes had a great outfit, and too bad we did not capture his wife's, she had masked her baby bump as a beer gut! 



And the dancing started!
