Sharing coffees and wine with  likeminded souls is always good remedy for anything. Taking photos, stalking insanely handsome surfers on Instagram, being single together. Seeing the world a little differently than most & choosing paths out of the ordinary.  Following our hearts instead of following the “smart choices”, which society expects of us.

 

Why be ordinary when you can go for extraordinary?

– Wearing all vintage, because vintage is the future, it is unique, it is better for everyone & our planet –

The end of January & beginning of February is giving us crazy snow storms one day and heavy rain and fog the next. I can easily admit that I´m pretty done with this winter, ready for a new season. I would not mind the snow to stay up in the mountains for a few more months, but the city is ready for spring to blossom. I´m sick of heavy boots, coats and to many layers, I do love layers, but I´m ready for lighter versions of them.

These photos was taken right before the winter really came, and I was still enjoying a bit of warm sun on my face.

Everything vintage




Your Raging Sun it Burns Beneath My Heartbeat
You Rupture Me,
I build you up
The Core Of You
it Runs so Deep Inside Me
Like Volcanoes We erupt and we subside

Hi again lovelies, hope your 2018 is starting off well? I finished off the year with a really beautiful outfit, inspired by the 20s. I believe that vintage can be just as good as buying new, actually it is better from a ethical & environmental perspective. Going for vintage gives your look a more unique touch, individuality & the amazing greatness of being more eco friendly.


I wore a complete vintage outfit for New Years, besides the shoes. 

Faux fur jacket & velvet dress were bought in London this weekend.
Chanel bag was bought in Sydney.
Hairband I made myself from old fabric bands, and the feather is an old one from my mums grandmother. 
Jewellery is all after my grandmother.

Happy sparkling holidays from this gypsy in the north.

Hope everyone are having good time with family, friends or others they may be spending time with. I´m home in Larvik for a few days, then going back to Oslo for a few days working before flying off to London celebrating the new year.

I had a sparkling christmas eve, wearing an a amazing vintage sequin dress, there is not enough happenings to wear such a dress, so I love it when I can go all in.

Enjoy your holidays and look after each other

The winter season is months and months of wearing knitwear, most of the time jumpers, but why not also wear knitted skirts and dresses? I´m a skirt & dress girl, I rarely wear pants so wearing skirt during winter is bound to happen. Being back in Norway, the winters are a bit colder than what I´m used to, so I need to wear warmer stockings and also adding some warm wool skirts or dresses to the wardrobe helps.

 

……

 

This season I inherited many warm skirt from my grandmother, including this homemade knitted skirt, which is absolutely gorgeous.

Finding a good quality wool skirt can be difficult, I´ve seen the best options at vintage & OP shops. You get something unique, most likely a really good quality if you choose the once you see look old and you save the environment a little.

The last week has been pretty cold, windy and it has been snowing as well, so I´ve joined the “parkas community”. I always prefer wearing nice coats and jackets, but sometimes you just have to give in for keeping warm and comfortable.  I had a good winter parkas from Fjellreven, but I were wanting something even bigger and longer. I found the perfect one from a Scandinavian brand called Samsøe Samsøe, no leather details and no down.

PERFECT

I sold my old jacket, and invested in a new one, as I would not see the point in having two almost identical jackets for the same use, so someone esle can be happy with my old jacket is perfect.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my super oversized faux fur coat, that my grandma gave to me 6 years ago. It is probably from when she was in her 30s, so it has had a long life. I´m keeping it safe and sound, so hopefully I can pass it on to someone else when I feel to old to wear it.

Vintage and clothes passed on by older relatives are just amazing, don´t take it for granted, keep it in mind next time you consider getting rid of something special you have.

On Sunday I attended a clothing swap event, organised by an environmental group here in Norway, “The future in our hands”. You had to bring up to 7 things, in relative good condition, then you would be able to pick as many “new” items as you handed in. The leftover clothes got donated to charity.

Clothing swap is a great way to lower your consumption habits and save the environment for a little less pollution. All our decisions and actions matter.

 

“Vi kjøper rundt 70.000 tonn nye klær hvert år her i landet. Kleshandlingen vår er dårlig nytt for både klimaet og miljøet. Hvert plagg fører minst til et klimagassutslipp som tilsvarer mellom 1 og 17 kg med karbondioksid, avhengig av hvilket materiale det er laget av. Sammenlignet med 1995 har prisen på klærne falt med 63 prosent og vi kaster 79 prosent mer klær årlig. I tillegg til klimafotavtrykket fører klærne våre til store utslipp av miljøgiftige kjemikalier og krever enorme mengder vann der de ofte har minst fra før. Her er våre beste tips til hvordan klærne dine kan bli mer miljøvennlige.”

“We purchase approximately 70.000 ton of new clothes every year in Norway. Our clothing-buying habits are really bad for the the environment. Every piece of cloth creates between 1-17 kg og co2, depending on the material it is made off. Compared to 1995 the prices for clothes are 63 prosent lower, and we throw 79 prosent more clothing every year. Not only creating I high amount og c02, the clothes are also produced with many chemicals, harming both environment, the humans and animals.”

I only ended up with four “new” items, but I´m perfectly happy with that, as I got to clean up a little, improve our environment a little and support a charity.

The first snow of the year have arrived in Oslo, it fell on Tuesday and it was magical. So now I feel like I dont need an excuse to wear knits everyday. 

 

…….

 

This pink and purple were knitted by my grandma maybe 30 years ago, and it is so beautiful. We found it hidden away in the basement, so I´m really exited that I get to bring it back to life again.
Almost all types of styles/trends will be a trend again, or loved by someone else, so never toss anything.
The amount of clothes ending up in landfill is enormous, so unnecessary as most thinks should be given a second chance. Either donate to charity, sell it give it away or simply keep it until you maybe wanna wear it again, your style and taste will circulate.

Just like this jumper from my grandmother have now done.

A new week starting off with amazing sunshine and fresh air.
I´m off today so started the week with a good walk with one of my really good friends around a lake in our neighbourhood then cleaning, listening to podcasts and planning blog posts and planning the week.

 

……

 

A few weeks ago we started going through my grandmas clothes, so there were a lot of really beautiful and good quality vintage garments that we have decided to keep. Most of it is still at my mums house, as we have decided to pick a few things at a time, dividing between my sister, my mum and I. So I only brought a couple of pieces with me to Oslo last time I was home, including a really beautiful leather skirt and an awesome vintage set; a skirt and jumper.

Vintage and inherited clothes are in my opinion hundred times better than buying new clothes. it has a story to tell, quality is very often much better, as the fashion industry today is not focused on quality and it is so much better for our environment.
