A.C.P hat, t-shirt and coat / Illesteva sunglasses / RAG AND BONE dungarees / 3.1 Phillip Lim shoes / Acne Studios little black bag, belt and scarf / Alexander Wang enveloppe bag / Daniel Wellington watch / Martone CYCLING Co. bike / BEAUTY  

99% of the 'French' aspect of this comes purely because A.P.C is a French brand and lingerie sounds and it is from the French. About two weeks ago I stepped into the Pull & Bear in Amsterdam about half a year after their opening to try to avoid the mass and tourists - which is absolutely inevitable in Amsterdam especially the Kalverstraat - without a mission and bumped into a series of striped tees in all different color combinations; black/white, white/black, light grey/white, dark blue/white etc. That's when I got the french feels. Pair a breton stripe with a simple ankle hugging skinny jean or cigarette trousers, hacienda shoes, a red lip and a hat and you're done. 

And as cliche and over-done it sounds, the je ne sais qoui fashion maybe an attitude really has something magical to it and every non-french-girl is envious that only the French girls, not to forget the men, can pull of. It can make the most put together look seem blasé. A.P.C. is so kind to share this magical feeling with us and to helps us adopt Emmanuelle Alt's wardrobe rather than a Shrek around 7AM on an ordinary day. I'm all in, Merci Beaucoup ! :)

COS dress and dress sweater / Acne studios boots

Dark blue. It's not exactly colorful but for me this is very rare. The first thing my friend said when she saw me wearing something other than black was: "Blue, seriously? Are you ok?" There is literally no black item of clothing in this look. Maybe I'm going through my own sartorial revolution and subconsciously changing my unable-to-identify-style to something more Scandinavian inspired seeing I am getting more and more into the on the knee and shin length dresses and not really caring to impress someone, it's more in the purer form of self-expression in the sense that there is no explanation. In this look I stayed true to whatever I stand for and what I feel comfortable in, my dad would say "A simple plain bin bag with some boots.". 
However, I'm sticking to my plan of not buying anything irrelevant and prefer purchasing great quality.

Topshop sweater / Acne boots, sunglasses and bracelets / Nars nailpolishes 

I love this simple more rock and fall inspired items. My closet is slowly turning into a more basic and minimalistic one and there are many more items to come. Stay tuned.

I'm a huge fan of Scandinavian and industrial design which you'll see in this inspiration post.
I've got to keep this short, because I have to leave for work in a minute and then later visit my friends new place. 

Adios Amigo!

Acne -Donna- boots

Finally! I did not have the intention of purchasing them that day, hell I couldn't even afford them. They had been a pair of so many in my shoe closet in heaven for years until I literally bumped into them. It was an afternoon that I spend with my cousin in the warehouse and we could absolutely not leave before we had a look around the shoe department. The majority of the sands filled with shoes were neither interesting nor exiting and as I was about to leave I took one last turn... and there they were... Donna said hi in her beige tanned skin, she was still is so pretty and I just could not resist her, so I greeted her. Her perfect soft stitched skin and beautiful wooden heel, even her bottom was soft! Then she surprised me when she showed me her green sticker, 70% off! I had a confessions of a shopaholic moment as I tried them on and tried to figure out her reduced price and how much she was going to hurt my bankaccount's feelings not to mention my dad's face. On the other hand, she would make me confident, taller, thinner, more poised and she would be an investment. Those pro's weighed much heavier than the con's, so the decision was easily made. I swiped my cart through the machine and Donna belonged to me. Who said you can't buy love?

Topshop skirt, underwear and shirt / WANG backpack / Acne studios bracelets, belt, scarf, glasses and gloves / COS boots / Zara iPhone case / Larsson & Jenning watch / Burberry lipgloss

Copenhagen fashion week just ended, the September issues are in stores and clothing stores have started to sell their fall/winter 2014 collections. The whole shazam. So I thought what better time than now to create a board with several items from different brands that I currently happen to have a secret addiction for. 

About two weeks ago I vowed to not spent every cent I have on clothes and be more responsible with my funds. In order to actually make this happen I made a list of items that I am allowed to purchase, because buying clothes is just inevitable. 

- A leather jacket (faux leather doesn't count)
- A dress for my 18th birthday paired with shoes
- Black boots 
- A black sweater that in fact is capable of keeping me warm during winter
- Underwear (a girls right to underwear should never been taken)
- A pair of sneakers
- Gloves and a hat 

Now this shouldn't be too hard, right?...

I don’t think it has even been a year ago that I had sworn off my earlier purchased shiny white Birkenstocks when they became hot and happening and a new pair was bought. Around the same time I made a vow to never wear or purchase clothes that feel like you’re about to choke or make you feel like you’re walking around naked. I don’t like the slim fitted dresses and the tight shirts. I prefer to wear everything baggy and lose fitted, except for the skinny jeans that don’t feel like they’re taped on your legs. So when the collection for Spring and Summer 2014 were shown and designers started to introduce the oversized items again, me and my fashion morals held a little party to celebrate.

Modern design and our approach to how we dress is becoming less and less about ‚looking good’ to others and more about a personal approach to how we want to look and what we feel comfortable in. The notion of the notorious Birkenstock and baggy trousers is a confirmation to how free people, in particular women, are becoming with regards to getting dressed in the morning. Birkenstocks, low hemlines and culottes are a middle finger to the idea that we have a societal dress code.
This sartorial revolution and rejection of traditional attractiveness is liberating and takes some courage. It creates this world where we decide what we want to wear, what we feel sexy and attractive in rather than following suit to what we are ought to wear to feel like that.

Perhaps we can also say that in creating a world where traditional attractiveness is ignored, the idea of choice becomes a reality. I can make the choice of wearing something that is flattering according to what we conventionally find flattering or I can wear a sartorial equivalent of a tent. Perhaps the most important message to women is; we can no longer be criticized for enjoying fashion and be told that we are objectifying ourselves.

Any way that I decide to dress is underlined in freedom because there are two ends of the spectrum, not just the one side that pertains to convention and tradition. If I want to wear a sweater which hemline ends under my knees combined with wide trousers and Birkenstocks than it’s my choice. Birkenstocks being praised is just one way of showing how fashion nowadays is giving ownership of the term beautiful to people. What better way to celebrate personal style than by giving people the option to define it themselves? So while not everyone will agree with me, certainly men and especially my father, I give my pair of Birks a solid high five.
