As days get colder and darker, it makes total sense to wear a light and feminine blouse (????). Yes! Under a warm and cosy jacket, right? But to find the right jacket can be a challenge, especially when, like yours truly, you are a fuller figured lady. But even though nowadays it is a bit easier to find a winter coat in sizes larger than L, there is something I must share…
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.
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.
The 2016 Scandinavia’s Next Top Model season was all dedicated to the plus size girls. The winner got a contract with the British agency Milk Model Management, which is one of the most respected agencies in the industry, plus a cover in the Slink Magazine and campaign with lingerie chain Change.
The contestants – from Norway, Sweden and Denmark – ranged between 20 and 27 years old, they looked all very beautiful and determined to be the next Top Model of the coldest area of the world
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.
