Checked Blazer & Joy Division Tee


Blazer: Vintage | T-shirt: Vintage Velouria | Jeans: Zara (old) | Boots: Mango (old)

I bought this Joy Division t-shirt in a store called Vintage Velouria last month when I went to Oslo. I love Joy Division and I wanted to celebrate them by wearing this t-shirt. I'm currently in the middle of an exam period and this is the outfit I wore yesterday. I only get dressed as I feel more productive when I'm writing instead of just sitting in my PJs all day. While I was waiting on my coffee to brew, I asked my mom to help me shoot a few photos of my little outfit. I know it's very simple but unfortunately, it won't get much better than that until after I'm done with my last exam.

Where to Find Bond-Babe-Esque Prom Dresses #Ad

My one regret from my own prom, back in 2014, is that I never really cared a lot about what dress I was going to wear. I ended up ordering a dress from The Reformation (a brand that I absolutely LOVE) but unfortunately, it didn't fit me right and I felt terrible in my prom dress throughout prom dinner. When I eventually decided that I needed to go home to change clothes, I fell asleep on my bed which was covered in all the alternative dresses I had pulled out of my closet and was deciding between. To this day, I still blame my prom dress for the fact that missed out on prom night, so I would know how important it is to have the right dress for you.

If I could do it all over again, I would want a prom dress just like the one Barbara Bach wore in her role as Anya Amasova in The Spy Who Loved Me. When the lovely Annie, from The Celebrity Dresses, contacted me to write a blog post about their site, I instantly remembered how badly I wanted to have a prom dress like the one Barbara Bach wore in The Spy Who Loved Me.

The Celebrity Dresses specializes in recreating red carpet looks and dresses worn by actresses from all our favorite movies. They have been featured by major publishers such as Teen Vogue, Seventeen Magazine, and InStyle. They carry a large selection of celebrity dresses from IT-girls like Bella and Gigi Hadid. However, the ones that really caught my eye were the dresses worn by other oldschool muses such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly.

All dresses on their site are custom made and very affordable. They're tailored by your measurements and you have the option to customize the dress from scratch, if that's what you want to do. The Barbara Bach dress is now on sale for $159.99 (used to be $389.99) which most of their prom dresses are. In addition to the favorable price point, they also offer free world wide shipping on all items.

You can find the Barbara Bach dress right here or you can go find your favorite dress right here!

The western trend is one of those trends that always comes back around. What popularized the trend this time around was the collection Raf Simons designed for Calvin Klein FW17. Designers have since then latched on and shown western inspired pieces for SS18 and FW18. Since then, I've desperately been browsing through vintage shop after vintage shop for the perfect pair of cowboy boots and a western shirt to match. With no luck, I settled on this little number from Monki. It's neither vintager nor a pair of boots, but I found it to be a quite charming piece regardless.

What do you think of the western trend?

Things that Made Me Happy this Week

Sunglasses: Céline* | Robe: Vintage | Top: Intimissimi | Skirt: River Island (old) | Shoes: Adidas*

I’ve compiled a list of things that made me smile this week. I think it’s healthy to reflect upon and appreciate the little things in life. I have a bad habit of feeling like I’m not having a great time, unless something big or extraordinary is happening and that’s something I really want to change about myself. Without further ado, here are a few of the things that made me happy this week.

1. RuPaul’s Drag Race and 13 Reasons Why
Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why just came out and I watched all of it over the weekend. To be honest, RuPaul’s Drag Race makes me happy every week and I’ve been very vocal on my blog about my love for drag queens and what the show means to me. This week Drag Race and 13 Reasons Why collided as Miles Heizer was a guest judge on Drag Race. I have the biggest crush on Miles. I find him so mysterious and cute. However, Miles isn’t the only reason why I enjoyed 13 Reasons Why. The show touches on VERY heavy, but VERY important subjects that no one really talks about. It allows conversation about the worst things in life and reenforces the fact that we are never truly alone.
2. Mini Cruise to Oslo
I bought my mom a mini cruise from Copenhagen to Oslo for Christmas and we decided to go this week. The weather was insane for Scandinavian standards (27°C/80°F!!). We got to see the Edvard Munch museum and walk around the city for a couple of hours. I love my mom and I love spending time with her. I’m such a momma’s girl and I’m not even ashamed of it.

3. I finally got Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
A while back, I ordered Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on Amazon and it finally came in  the mail this week. I know the book is very old, but I remember I couldn’t afford it when it came out 10 years ago and I just haven’t gotten around to buying it until now.
4. Catching up with old friends
A couple of days ago, I was on the phone with one of my best friends from high school. Unfortunately, we don’t talk a lot so when we finally do talk we have so much catching up to do that we end up talking for hours. Old friends know you in a different way and even if you live far apart and they can’t see what’s going on in your life with their own eyes, they know what advice to give you and how to help you navigate your life. It’s also so nice to be taken back in time and laugh about the things that you used to laugh about as a teenager!
5. The Royal Wedding
I’m neither a royal enthusiast nor am I into weddings, but everyone was talking about it so I had to watch the wedding too. Let me tell you, I SOBBED my way through the wedding. All the symbolism was so nice and so meaningful. I loved the black Gospel choir performing Stand By Me by Ben E. King, that was just beautiful. I want to finish off this post with what Michael Curry (the American preacher) said at their wedding:

“Imagine a World Where Love Is the Way”

As the weather has been incredible the past couple of days here in Denmark, I’ve been frantically looking for clothes to wear for summer. I’m not automatically drawn to bright colors, frills, floral prints, and other design elements often associated with summer outfits. I would prefer edgy over girly any day, but I find it very hard to dress according to my personal taste in the summer months. For this outfit, I dug out this faux leather dress from my closet that I bought for a party back in February. This outfit definitely works best for summer days with a little bit of cold breeze, but I feel very much like myself in it which is the most important thing to me.

My Take on the Polka Dot Trend

One of the biggest trends of the season is polka dots. In my opinion, the most beautiful polka dot designs of SS18 were at the Jacquemus show, the Carolina Herrera show, and the Jason Wu show. Yes, polka dots feminine and fun; two words that I definitely wouldn't use to describe my personal style. However, I TOTALLY identify with the ‘80s vibe that the polka dot print gives off.
