Second-hand find: Floating Red Spheres

Photo: Mette Bassett

Røde giga træperler på snor, fundet i en af genbrugsbutikkerne i Chiswick. Halskæden kostede 4 pund og jeg synes, at den er særligt sjov til et sort outfit, da det så nærmest ser ud som om, at kuglerne svæver frit i luften.

English: Necklace made of giant wooden spheres on a soft rope. I paid 4 pounds for it in one of the second-hand shops in Chiswick and like to wear it with an all-black outfit. From the distance the spheres look like they are floating in the air.

Second-hand find: D&G leopard print skirt

Min veninde knækkede næsten sammen af grin, da jeg for et par år siden stædigt valgte at betale 12 pund og gå ud af Oxfam-genbrugsbutikken v. Notting Hill Gate (guide på vej) med den her Dolce & Gabbana nederdel. Så grim var den åbenbart. Hvad kan jeg sige, jeg har haft en kærlighedsaffære med dyreprint lige siden gymnasietiden, og det er det eneste mønster, jeg aldrig bliver helt træt af.

Og nu er længere kjoler jo lissom kommet tilbage, så min kiksethed måtte være aftaget, tænkte jeg, og jeg besluttede mig derfor for at afprøve D&G’en i weekenden. Jeg synes faktisk at den holder, så den skal nok finde vej ud på gaden igen. Den der ler sidst, ler bedst…


English: My friend couldn’t stop laughing when I decided to spend 12 pounds on this leopard print Dolce & Gabbana skirt in the brilliant Oxfam at Notting Hill Gate (guide to come). She thought it was the ugliest skirt ever, but I was so drawn to the animal print, I just had to buy it. Plus I had a feeling long skirts would be back in fashion soon.

Fast forward a couple of years and here we are, surrounded by long skirts and maxi-dresses. So I decided it was time to take D&G for a walk in the sun, and you know what, I actually think it looks ok. Maybe it should be a bit longer, but it’s so comfy and the bright pattern puts me in a good mood. So I’m glad I trusted my instinct.
