Copenhagen: Star Wars


Ray Smith, who wrote a piece on the return of the kitten heel for the Wall Street Journal, said the height of the heel could be a good indicator of our present economy. At an economic peak in 2008 stilettos reached a towering height of 8 inches (Prada) and now in 2010, heels have lowered down to a mere 1.5 inches (Missoni). Regardless of the economy there is always place for staple, trustworthy pieces. This leather satchel fits the bill. Maybe it would be one of those pieces you'd invest in during those "peaks" but it would last through these economic slumps and never let you down.
These types of pieces work for anything between leisure and business.

Now about these kitten heels...
We're still trying to recoup from the clog trend...

1X3: Jean Jacket Part Two



When putting together a 1X3 post Im always searching for a piece that keeps coming up and this jean jacket could honestly have a part 2, part 3, part 4....you get the point. Ive featured this before way back when this feature just started but it kept coming up that it warrented another post. You can also see how its been styled with skirts and pants. Its great to throw on when it gets a little chilly in the summer or when you layer up in the spring and fall. If your lucky enough to live somewhere mild for the winter..again, you get my point.

Thanks to Look 10 for doing an update feature!

Copenhagen: Head Games


Her hair was flowing in the wind and fit perfectly under this season IT hat. Don't we all wish we had re-thought our short hair cuts?



"Never misjudge the most faithful heart of you beloved
Ever thine Ever mine Ever..."
She might have been camera shy but she made a statement with her head scarf and beautifully tattooed words.

IVANAhelsinki

IVANAhelsinki is a Finnish line led by a sister act, Paola and Pirjo Suhonen. Paola is the designer who draws upon the romance she finds in Finland’s epically lit summers and consuming dark winters to design pieces for those who are nomadic at heart. She designs with a Slavic mood and Finnish roots.


Started ten years ago, IVANAhelsinki has gone international, being the only Scandinavian line to be included in Paris Fashion Week’s “In” show list. The pieces have resonated with their mix of romance and an underlying harder edge. This past year, they had a sucessful pop-up venue in NYC, that hosted various urban culture events. IVANAhelsinki seems less like an ordinary clothing line and more like an exemplification of the lifestyle that surrounds the pieces. Their website is quite clear at portraying their vibe.

They will be showing at Copenhagen Fashion Week on August 13th. Ive got some surprises up my sleeve about fashion week but we'll wait till August for those!

1X3: Cotton Candy

I haven't been taking pictures with this blazer for quite a while but I can tell you..between you, me and the lamp post that uhh...I wear this at least once a week. Im in love with it. Its light weight, long, perfect with ANYTHING I wear, it fits my disgusting love for pink right now, I can dress it up or down, it works in both the very girlie and more androgynous directions..Do you need more reasons why this blazer is perfect and essential?

London Street Fashion: Brick Lane


Back from London and Ive got loads to share-  Here's the first! 
This girl was sharing my newfound love for Brick Lane with her heart cut out dress.
She looked really romantic but her strapped wedges added the ideal pinch of edge.

Moonbeam


Here's the latest piece I've made-
Never happier than when Im in something thats loose and comfortable but still has some shape.
And yes, I believe in balance. Fancy dress- messy hair. Perfect hair- grunge it up a little.

Im off to London for the weekend!
Hoping to snap some street style photos-

CPH Street Fashion: Perfectly Simple

This Austrian girl says she's learned a lot about style from living in Copenhagen-
keeping it simple, carefree but beautiful.
From her Wayfarers to her billowy summer dress- I'd say she's learned well.
