Merry Christmas

I wish all my readers a merry Christmas. Right now I'm waiting for the rest of my family to attend an early Christmas dinner at our house. The gifts are already under the Christmas tree, which makes me even more  nervous, because I have no idea what is inside those beautifully packaged boxes. I hope Santa brought me nice gifts this year, he never disappoints.


Ms. Stoneface

Some people (read most of them) always think that I'm an icequeen, without any feelings. Sometimes even without a heart. But that, my dear friends, isn't true. I don't show any emotions, because I think it is a weakness. To show emotions. Sure, as every human being, I feel things. I just choose not to show them. Think of it as survival skills. For example: If you give a child a lollipop, because the child expressed a big love for sweets and this child becomes instantly happy by receiving it. Now, the kid is happy. But the giver knows now what will make the child unhappy, by knowing what makes him/her happy. When someone knows: what makes you happy,what you value or love, they quickly know what to take from you to make you unhappy. Like taking a lollipop from a child.

And yes, I know that I write this blog about fashion. But it is Me who writes it, so you all might as well know something about me except for my taste in fashion. 


BLK DNM Sample Sale

A couple of days ago, I scrolled through my instagram-feed and saw an open invitation to a BLK DNM-sample sale. In that very moment I decided to check it out, even though the sale was located across town from my favorite shopping spots. Why not? I have nothing to loose (hahhah, except for money) and those few minutes riding the subway won't matter. I dragged my ass across town, to a neighbourhood I never visit, perhaps because it is so far from everything I like. But it wasn't that bad. During the short walk from the subwaystation called Rådmansgatan, I spotted some cozy stores and cafes. Wait and see, I will perhaps take a trip there in the nearest future. The showroom was in a chic underground dungeon/garage, with cemented floors and cool furniture, think industrial chic. There wasn't much people there, I don't think that people knew about this. If we say so; sample sales aren't so popular here in Stockholm and they almost never happen. In the end I found a great camel-coloured cashmere (it doesn't get better than that) sweater and a perfect pair of black high-rise jeans. The prices were so low in comparison to the original prices, I paid approximately 25 percent of the original prices.


Mascara for kids?

I opened a site today, the first thing I saw was a big advertisement of a new L'Oréal mascara called: Miss manga. Advertised with a colorful, animated character that looks like a panda with giant lashes and dressed in pink clothes. Is it even right to target young girls as customers?

Sure it is nothing wrong with wearing mascara, when being young. I started wearing mascara when I was 13 years old.

Nowadays I see 8-9 year old girls wearing mascara, eyeliner and wedges (4-5 cm) during a walk in Stockholm. Sure, L'Oréal made such a campaign because their customers are being younger for every year that passes by. But should the younger group of customers be attracted to the new product by making the campaign childish? 

It is just inappropriate to see such young girls dress and act as adults. It is wrong, they should be innocent kids, playing around. Never even thinking if they look ''right'' or if they should improve on their look. Those girls should enjoy their childhood, as long as they have it. Because later in life they would need make up to cover something up, then, they will have reasons to wear make up. 

Right now they don't have any reasons to wear such things. They still have their perfect baby faces with perfect illuminating skin. 

I think they only use make up because their friends do, they simply don't want to be different. They have no interest in being outsiders, always watching from the sidelines. 

What do you think? What is the age limit when it comes to make up?

( if you want to see the campaign just google miss manga mascara)


Bye Marc

Dear Marc Jacobs,

I will truly miss you as the designer in chief of Louis Vuitton. But I'm also happy, now you will have more time to dedicate to your own brand.

You have performed spectacles, in the greatest meanings of this word. Carousels, escaletors and magic fairytales which made us feel like Alice in wonderland and as if You were our Madhatter.

Creative and cool, unique yet personal, a signature aesthetic that always included excitement and surprises.

No one will ever be able to replace you, because you are irreplacable. One of a kind.


Stockholm fashion night, update

Sadly, this year I will be missing Fashion Night in stockholm. Because I am going hiking in the middle of nowhere. Additionally  I will be sleeping in the forest, during the night, in a TENT!

Which I never had done before. I think it will be the first and last time I'm going camping.
