When party season is on, it is officially allowed to shine on a daily basis. Clothes acquire bling bling’s, the accessories get fancy and us? We do have more fun. But truth is we need no allowance, or approval of any sorts, to shine as bright as we can, as often as we can, and even like, 24/7. With that being said, I got to add an important detail that changes it all: our brightest shine is from the inside out.
This dress is surely on the Top Five list of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn. It is a dream of a dress and I am super to have it included in my style edit for Marina Rinaldi. The first look you can see here.
Possibly the biggest trend of the fall/winter seasons this year is the use of masculine to accentuate certain aspects of femininity. Genderless-like pieces are there to stay and I am glad this suit is available in my size, so I can properly flash this trend.
Colours are kind of a state of mind. They help me to brighten my days when the weather is so grey and dark and I am so tired from the lack of full nights sleep due to my small baby boy. Impressive how to dress in bright colour help me. But then again, how to get blue days when you have such a sweet smile to you like Mikkél does to me?
What time is it? It’s Glam time! This is the most glamorous time of the year where parties are all over allowing us proper excuses to shine even more (not that we need excuses to shine, but, anyways…) and I am glad to share some party outfits I picked up in the Lindex collection currently in stores.
The idea is to encourage ladies like Moi, that dress larger sizes, to try some new ways of pairing pieces ad creating unique outfits. Even when most of the clothes in the stores are black, you can still try something new for you, that channels glamour and fierceness.
I was ready! Elbows sharpen, combat mood and adventurous spirit on! It was 19h, 2 degrees when I left my apartment in a central location in Oslo heading to the only H&M concept store in town. It was a preshopping event, from 20h to 22h in which the hundreds of people queuing in the cold would be divided into groups to have 10 minutes to shop the Kenzo collection before everybody else. It did seem like a great thing for me. There I was, super cold, enjoying warm coffee and colourful doughnuts that were served for the poor lucky pre-shoppers.
I was in the second group. From the window, I could already spot the location of the pieces I really wanted. The idea was to run and score my favourite dress, jacket, boots and socks. I also had the mission of buying something for my husband. It could be anything I thought he would wear.
By the time I finally got in the store, I and dozens of too excited Kenzo fans apparently had the same strategy. When they opened the fence I really wanted to run and grab that dress, I really wanted. But I just could not be aggressive with the other ladies and the desired piece was not mine. It ended up in someone’s faster hands. But in a world where good connections are everything, my girl went to the storage and I got all the pieces I wanted, in the largest sizes.
