Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved dressing up. In my teens, while people dreamt of becoming this and that, when my desire to be a doctor and then a teacher subsided, I decided I wanted to become stylish- haha! I’d wear my mother’s clothes, I’d put on her silk blouses and smell her perfume, I’d wrap myself in her colorful beads and “enter” her high heels. I used to dream of myself at 20, a mysterious dark haired beauty. Haha! And dark haired I grew up to be, a beauty- so and so, mysterious, not so much. But what I like to think I grew up to be is stylish. Haha! I know, not so modest, right?
Tilda Swinton in A Bigger Splash
But let me tell you how it all started. It started with Italian series, remember “La piovra?” Later on, I let myself be absorbed by “La giovinezza”, “La grande bellezza”, “1992”, “1993”, “The Mob only Kills in Summer” and so on. My biggest idol is Tilda Swinton in “I am Love” and “A Bigger Splash”, she’s splendid, don’t you agree?

Anyways, these days I’m very happy ’cause I finally found a camel colored coat in a lovely Vintage Store in Denmark, so today I’m putting it on, as well as my over dimensioned tassel-earrings, some high heels and I’m ready for a Friday date with F and a girlfriend of ours. For an Italian style (my interpretation), go for classic Max Mara pieces, combined with refined artisan shoes, killer hair and diva glasses. I live in Norway, so I stick to Filipa K, Cathrine Hammel and the likes and then spruce them up with Italian and French couture. 😉
