As you might have discovered – Ida and I share a passionate love for Patti Smith.
Ida being the one introducing me to her.
And as you also might have discovered, if I feel very passionate about something, I can’t stop but tell everyone around me.
So, if you still haven’t read Patti Smith’s Just Kids – this review/ introduction might just be what you need.
GO READ HER BOOK.
Love the retro look. Not sure about the decade though – so let’s make a broad statement and call it retro look
Sometimes it can get all costume-y, but this time I just love it. As always with Fiona.
in line with my last prose on the dressing pressure in Copenhagen (oh, but there is no pressure, it’s all very casual and lalala..), I hereby present to you: the ultimate hipster (yes, I still use that word).
Why the ultimate*?
A rusty old racer bike
rolled up pants and sleeves
and a loose bagpack
oh yes, and casios.
* If he were a real hipster I wouldn’t know half of the brands he is wearing, ’cause they would be all oh so underground and “individual”..
Today I took a lot of pictures.
as in seriously, a lot of pictures.
I also have my sister and brother visiting,
who are luckily used to me whispering
"crap, I'm too slow",
"oh no wait, try to stand still
so I can take a picture of 'you' ".
It's going to take a while
before I've edited them,
so here a quick preview.
I’m sorry – I feel bad about being negative, like I’m gonna be (and it’s nothing personal, sorry Aura!!)
Ida talking in green coat. I gotta jump into this post and comment directly. No isa, don’t be sorry, Aura should be kinda sorry. Or fire her stylist.
But JESUS – what a CRAPPY outfit! √
I know, it gets one point for matching the colour of the necklace (which is pretty) with the lipstick – but Come on – WHAT A HORRIBLE OUTFIT? Isabella, you are absolutely right on the money. the necklace is awesome ( actually Tommy Ton material, no?)
- Don’t do white if you don’t have a models’ figure. Just don’t.
- Don’t cut off your legs with black tights when cutting them off again with silver shoes (like white, black, white – how on earth should a Zebra-look be flattering when executed like this?)
- And what’s with the mix of styles? Like – Oh I’m fashion forward, I know white ‘s the shit next season. Though also, Oh I’m so cute, but also brave and wear weird bow tights. But hey, I reeeeally like MiuMius shoes and haven’t come further than wedges – so let me get some of those too.
But hey, I really feel sorry about bitching here – but on the other hand – that’s what the red carpet is for, right? So that the brave ones can make fashion faux pas and then we can learn from their mistakes?!
Am I too harsh? Nope.
This truly testifies how Coco Chanel’s advice should be applied: Dress up and then remove three items of your outfit. in this case we’re talking the cover-up shirt, the bow-tie tights and the shoes. (just wear normal black Manolo’s or anything else. and black/beige tights. no bows. not this time)
We might seem tough. Long live the unfiltered blogusphere.
