Marble

Marble is having a moment, not only in fashion but in interior as well. Sometimes easy to find (marble printed tops are everywhere), sometimes a bit harder (can’t seem to find affordable bedding in marble print). I saw an image on Pinterest a while ago showing a marble Macbook skin and had an instant obsession, so I went on the hunt. And then I found CaseApp, allowing me to make cases and skin for my favorite hardware in any print possible. Design your own, I love it. And thus I made a skin for my Macbook Air and a matching iPhone case in one of this seasons hottest prints. Also: a little peek into my interior. That could use some more marble, I think.
If you go to Caseapp.nl you can design any skin or case you want for your device, and you get 20% off with the code 20LUCY, valid until March 9th. Delivery is super quick! Happy Friday :)

7 Things

jlindeberg31-865x692 aww14

7 things that are on my mind right now.. First of all this look from the latest J. Lindeberg collection – love the combination of a thin white shirt (unbuttoned one button too many), a tough leather jacket and a silky scarf.

lashes

No such thing as too much mascara. Ever.

So, so many things at Zara. I’ve been trying for 2 months to ignore both the Zara stores and websites which saved me a lot of money but I think my will power has come to an end. Would LOVE to wear this in spring with my Air Force 1.

This picture from Stockholm Streetstyle. Still looking for the perfect long grey coat, and I might have to add a nude bag to my humble bag collection. Too good.

Hardware

DSC_4253DSC_4262

Paying a little tribute to the hardware that I can’t live without today. My beloved laptop and phone which pretty much are my (working) life. A backpack from QWSTION that I use as a laptop bag. A portable phone charger that saves my life every time I’m traveling or on the road for a long time. Always being able to charge my phone wherever I am, I don’t know what I used to do before I had this charger from Aiino. I’ve had multiple of these chargers but this one is the best one I’ve had, it can charge my phone multiple time without having to be charged itself and works really quick. And a case to protect my phone after 5 months of being stubborn and not using a phone case which resulted in many scratches on my phone, which was not very smart. Because let’s face it, only if I really had to, I could live without my phone, but I’d rather not!

This was CPHFW

Gallery cphfw

So I’m back for 2 days already but it took me a little while to do a CPHFW recap since I’ve done and seen so much and had so many pictures.. I decided to do a small diary showing my favorite moments of the week! Below the pictures are descriptions of what it is. And there’s me wearing the same coat in each picture, first of all because I’m obsessed with this coat (from Selected bought on ASOS, available here and here) and second of all because it’s the only warm coat I brought. Enjoy!

The first picture is from the Anne Sofie Madsen show which was a mix of biker couture and avantgarde punk, with lots of leather, (faux?) fur and biker boots. Such an interesting collection with many pieces I w0uld totally wear! Second and third picture are from the Samsøe & Samsøe AW14 collection which I had a look at while visiting the Gallery fair. As always, an amazing collection of which I’d wear almost anything and I’m obsessed with that grey coat!

Walking around Copenhagen which was super pretty in the snow, and a yummy salad that I had almost every day, from my favorite place to eat in Copenhagen: We Do Food.

Gorgeous details from the Ganni AW14 collection. They had the presentation in a really cool museum and once again, I was obsessing over coats.

Visiting the Baum und Pferdgarten showroom after visiting the show. I was really stunned by the collection that involved a lot of pattern play, interesting fabrics and a great color scheme. You may call this textured green coat my new obsession.

My favorite look from the Wood Wood AW14 show.

cphfw shopping

Of course there had to be some shopping involved in the trip as well! I had a small heart attack when trying on the most amazing leather jacket at Acne Studios, and brought this super cool leo and zebra sweater home with me from And Other Stories. Can’t wait until we get our own And Other Stories in Amsterdam!

copenhagen andersen hotel

I stayed with Debbie and Joyce in a great hotel called the Andersen Hotel. It was really central located in Vesterbro which is a really cool area, and the hotel and rooms looked really cool and modern, just as I like it. The service was amazing, as well as the breakfast (although I still don’t understand how people can eat herring for breakfast, seriously?) and we had a really nice stay thanks to the Andersen Hotel and Bloggernet. Can’t wait for next seasons CPHFW!

Short but Sweet

DSC_0930DSC_1120the exchange scary roomDSC_1112IMG_8152IMG_8266IMG_8249uber afw

My Amsterdam Fashion Week was short but sweet. Definitely short, since I only did 2 days. Somehow I was exhausted over the weekend so I decided to take some well-needed rest, and I just had 2 great days of AFW so I could live with it. My highlights of my short AFW experience? Obviously the Collectie Arnhem show (read the post about it here). but also a great hotel, getting my hair done and traveling in luxury.
The first 4 pictures are from the hotel I stayed at: Hotel The Exchange. It’s a really cool design hotel with rooms ranging from 1 to 5 stars, and every room is designed by a different student from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. Every room is different and my room, The Room of Misunderstood Creatures had really cool furniture and a bit of a dark side to it, contrasted by the sequins on the wall and in the floor. I love staying in interesting places and this hotel certainly is a really creative and cool place to stay at. I wish I could have seen all of the 61 rooms!

The second 3 pictures are from getting my hair done at Toni & Guy who did a great job at making me pretty on Thursday! Pictures were made by Bad Manor.
And the last two instasnaps are from another big highlight: taking taxiservice Uber to literally every place I needed to be that day. Boy, I don’t know if I can (at least I don’t want to) travel by tram anymore. The super luxurious cars Uber uses and the easy service via the app was great, I felt a bit like a celebrity!

So that was my short but sweet Amsterdam Fashion Week. Thanks Bloggernet for making these an awesome 2 days!
Right now: packing for Copenhagen Fashion Week. Absolutely can’t wait!

Who run the world?

DSC_0826DSC_0915

What I do to escape from every day reality and have a little me-time? Turn on the heating to sauna-mode, put on something comfy, grab a bag of Doritos and snuggle up in bed with lots of pillows, watching my favorite series. It’s my 30 or 40-minute getaway from reality and a way to completely get my mind off things. One of my favorite series is definitely Girls. It’s honest, it’s incredibly funny, cheeky and contemporary, and who can’t relate to the struggles and things that Hannah, Shoshana, Marnie or Jessie go through? Based in New York, I completely enjoy my weekly routine of watching those 4 girls living the life in the city I once hope to live in. I really enjoy the honesty, no-nonsense and at times a little vulgarity in the series.
So tell me, are you watching Girls yet? Good news: you can now watch the first episode for free on HBO here, but even better, I’ve teamed up with Fashiolista and HBO to share with you a really cool contest in which you can win a trip to New York for two, by simply clicking here and picking your favorite moment of the new trailer. Now that’s a Happy Thursday!

Bucket list / When fashion drives you

Since I share quite some of my personal life on this blog, I thought it would be fun to share some more personal facts about me now and in the future.
I’m starting with part of my bucket list. Who doesn’t have one? If you don’t, make one. Life is short.
I actually have quite a big bucket list. It’s filled with small and big things, material and immaterial, but here are 5 things that are definitely on my bucket list. Do let me know if you want to know the other 20 things that are on it :)

Villas on the tropical beach with steps into water

Go to the Maldives and sleep in a cabin in the sea.

Live in a loft in New York. Wouldn’t mind living in the one in this picture. It’s Gerard Butler’s New York loft. Sigh.

Own a classic Chanel bag. Still saving up for that one.

citroen ds3 fab

Own a car.
And boy have I found a car that I wouldn’t mind owning.
Citroën and Fab have teamed up by designing a fashionable car with the well-known Fab stars and hearts coming back throughout the car. And the car has it’s own accessory line as well (see below), that you receive when you purchase this customized Citroën DS3. It’s a really cool car and definitely one I wouldn’t mind owning. Citroën actually gives you the option to customize the design yourself as well, there are many colors and options to make your customized car even cooler, from the outside as the car interior. Would be so cool to customize my own quirky car! if I’m going to own one some day, it would definitely show my love for fashion and my personal taste. Head over to the website to see more images and read more about this fab car.
Also, you can win a day in a Fab Cab and win a Road Trip Collection set! Join the competition here.
