Vintage dresses

Written by , Posted in Style, Vintage

Husband got me a trip to New York to see the Daily Show for Christmas!(!!) I can’t wait! We’ll be in the states a few days in January and as I’ll probably spend my time trying to find the best vintage clothing stores, hat shops and lingerie boutiques in NY, it seems like a silly idea to do lot’s of online shopping now… (…) But if I were to buy something, it would probably be one of these dresses:

The Source of Christmas

Written by , Posted in Life, Music

For the past 16 years, the jazzband extraordinaire — The Source – has put on a fantastic christmas show in Oslo, called The Source of Christmas. Together with musicians from all over the world they play a packed three-hour-show of what they assure us is all christmas music. This years line-up inlcuded The Cairo Orchestra, Julius Winger, the ever-lovely Tora Augestad, and one of my current favourites, Kirsti Huke.

William Chambers

Written by , Posted in Hats

The other day I was searching the web for the perfect mini-beret when I came across milliner William Chambers. Not only does he have the perfect mini-beret, but his ready-to-wear collection also features exactly that, a lot of very nice and very wearable hats, that at least I could wear almost every day. I’m getting the beret to the left below (don’t tell Husband please, apparently I’m way over my yearly hat-budget), but honestly I wouldn’t mind owning every one of these beauties!

A tradition in the making

Written by , Posted in Food, Life

Friday I spent the day with the lovely M and her fantastic parents. We have made a bit of a tradition out of going to her parent’s place before christmas to [learn how to] make ‘lomper’, which is like a really flat, eh, potato cake. Very scandinavian and very tasty.

A bit of the view from Heimli. It’s located right next to the forest, and the place is so beautiful and quiet. It’s like coming home.

ID Sarrieri

Written by , Posted in Lingerie

So I’m back on lingerie..:) ID Sarrieri’s pieces are just pure perfection. I especially like the triangle bra featured on a few of the pictures below.. And the little lace blindfold that is popping up everywhere these days.. Just so decadent.
