Favourite things

Went to visit Lisa at Secondlove a couple of days ago, and this awesome ring caught my eye. I've been searching for the perfect skull ring for a while now. I also forgot to show you my gloves from Design Forum, and my day planner which I bought in Copenhagen (Star Wars special edition). I find it to be a perfect life motto. The small things make your life richer, like my newest family member, the blue plant who's name I do not remember.

Vintage and secondhand fashion-show by UNA Norway

Clothes by: Klesskapet, Secondlove, Kostym and Fretex

Yesterday my fashion show with vintage, secondhand and redesigned clothing ROCKED Torgallmenningen in Bergen for The United Nations Association of Norway, western region. I was lucky to have so many talented models, most of them had never even walked on a catwalk but still they were awesome!!! I did most of the styling,and it was such a pleasure to do styling again. I hope to educate people about the fact that used garments are helping us to create a sustainable development. They are also unique, and can be worn by everyone! So go thrifting people, while you listen to the last song we played on the fashion show (I'm dancing to it on the last picture):

Thanks to all the stores who participated, and to all my wonderful models.

Biker chic

wearing: Jacket, Skirt, Shoes: COS

Finally my bicycle is finished! I found it in my mother's basement, all dirty and rusty. It's from the 50's, and quite heavy. The frame is a lot heavier than modern bicycles, and it's also of much better quality. So I wanted it restored, and I went to the guys at Den Grønne Sykkel. They turned my shabby rusty bike into a mint green dream. Ofcourse I could have just bought a new bike, but there is something about the story and the quality. My mom used to ride it around Oslo when she was young.

If you need to fix an old bicycle, go to Den Grønne Sykkel!

Favourite vintage stores

So ein Ding is a beautiful vintage store in Århus, Denmark. I felt like I was in paradise while flipping through cute shift dresses from the 60's and glamourous party dresses from the 50's. This is a genuine gem of a store, and you can spend hours here. I'm actually going to suggest that you travel to Århus only to shop at this store. I got some treasures here, I'm going to show you later.

Old News is also situated in Århus. It lies in the adorable Latin Quarter. They offer reworked vintage or 3rd hand, tailored for the modern fashionista. The price range is a bit higher than So Ein Ding, because the items are reworked.

Time's up lies in Copenhagen's Krystalgade. It's been blogged about a lot from the Anywho girls, and I see why. They offer high end vintage from Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior and Chanel. They also have less pricy stuff which is equally gorgeous. After drooling over a pale blue Versus two piece, I moved on to a beautiful japanese jacket, and it got to join me home. Pictures will come soon. Times up also have a good men's section, which my beloved loved.

Actually I was quite dissapointed in most of the vintage stores in Copenhagen. Wasteland and København K were drained of cool items, only eclectic secondhand pieces from the 80's remained. Though I have to admit that Wasteland had a really nice selection of all-sequin sweaters and tops.

Love Iben
