Less than a few fabrics are sexier than lace and leather. What to call an outfit that unites both of them? Ok, let’s be humble and call it cute? ahahahhaa
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.
Shapewear is an extra touch to your everyday outfits or to that amazing party dress that you love so. The pieces embrace your curves and make you feel a bit more confident, even though we need no clothes to make us feel confidence, isn’t?
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.
It is already September but luckily it seems like summer is still around. The sun shines above us and the bright nights are still inspiring. In nights like those, it feels just right to grab a romantic dress and go on a date with friends or that special friend. And I did that. But, in the specific night of the picture, I headed to a very special occasion: the première of Masterchef Norge’s new season.
