Wish List: A fling with Dune

I tried these Dune boots on today and I had to exert all the self-control in the world….and then a bit more….to pull them off my feet,  put them back on the shelf and walk out the store without them.

Dune Fling Boots: £155.00. Buy them here (and then send them to me please) 🙂

Wish List: Black Winter Wedges

Mit budget er stramt for tiden, men hvis jeg skulle investere i én ting fra highstreet-butikkerne den kommende efterårs/vintersæson må det blive er par sorte støvler med kilehæl. Praktiske og behagelige men mere elegante end flade støvler. Og så skal de være helt enkle og sorte, gerne med snører eller lynlås. Her er nogle af dem, jeg har fundet på nettet, og nogle er jeg klart vildere med end andre (hej hej Opening Ceremony & Minimarket!!). Klik på billederne for at læse mere og shoppe:


I’m on a tight budget at the moment but if I were to “invest” in one thing from the high street shops for this coming autumn/winter season it would be a pair of ankle-length black wedge booties. Wedges are practical and comfortable but still more elegant than flat boots. I’m strictly aiming for basic black ones with lace ups and/or zipper. Here’s a few I like, some more than others (well hello Opening Ceremony & Minimarket!!). Click on the images to go to the online shops:

More H&M bling

Og nu vi snakker om fine H&M smykker, så se lige den her i metal og “lædersnore”, som min veninde lige har købt i H&M for omkring 15 pund. Vi var alle overbeviste om, at det var noget smadderdyrt designerlir, hun havde investeret i. Sådan en vil jeg da også gerne ha’.

English: Speaking of H&M jewellery, look what my friend just bought for around 15 pounds. The necklace is made of metal bits and “leather” cords. I was convinced it was a piece of expensive designer bling. Well done H&M.

Wishlist: One shoulder maxi dress from Topshop

Blev også fristet af denne fine maxikjole med tidens så populære assymmetriske bare skulder i går, da jeg smuttede en tur ind i myretue-butikken Topshop for at kigge på (fornuftige) sandaler. Jamen, jeg synes faktisk, at den passer perfekt til de der elastik-wedges fra Dune.

Nåede desværre heller ikke at prøve den og det er et must, inden jeg køber, da det ofte er hit-or-miss med pasformen i Topshop for mig. Den er i viscose og koster 28 pund. Fås også i den rødbrune farve “Brick”. Køb den her.

English: I was really tempted by this stylish one shoulder maxi dress when I spotted it in a very busy Topshop yesterday. It would be perfect with the elastic band wedges from Dune and a bit of bling. Comes in the red/brown colour “Brick” as well and costs 28 pounds. Buy it here.

Wishlist: Dune elastic strap sandal

Jeg har stadig ikke fået købt et par flade, praktiske sandaler. Til gengæld har jeg set omkring 10 forskellige par fantastiske wedges, og mit hjerte banker særligt for dette par, som jeg så i vinduet hos Dune i går. Så fine og enkle og prisen på 65 pund er også fornuftig. Hmmm, nåede ikke at prøve dem, men det bliver jeg nok nødt til at tage forbi og gøre.

Og wedges er da også praktiske hverdagssko, er de ikke? Godt, det mente jeg også! 🙂 Fås også m. mørkeblå og khaki elastik.

Køb dem online her

English: I still haven’t found the perfect pair of flat, practical summer sandals. They’re all so freaking boring. What I have found while quickly browsing the highstreet stores are around 10 different pair of lovely wedges: from boots to sandals. I spotted these in the window at Dune yesterday and I just love them. Simple and classy and the price is also pretty good: 65 pounds. They come in dark blue and khaki too.

You could call wedges practical and use them everyday, couldn’t you? Exactly, that’s what I thought! 🙂 I haven’t tried them on yet, so I don’t know how comfortable they are. Guess I’m heading for Dune again….

Wishlist – Dover Street Market perfume

Photo via shop.doverstreetmarket.com

Jeg køber sjældent nye parfumer, men i Japan forelskede jeg mig i denne fra Comme des Garcons. Den hedder Dover Street Market, ligesom firmaets vidunderlige (og meget dyre) butik i Dover St. her i London.

Selve duften er lidt maskulin og træagtig og som de fleste andre af deres parfumer er den unisex. Noterne består af bergamot, mandarin, sort peber, koriander, røgelse, enebær, cedertræ, labdanum, patchouli og fyrretræ. Flakonen er designet af mærkets fabelagtige grundlægger, Rei Kawakubo.

Det er bestemt ikke alle, der vil kunne lide den. Men jeg har altid foretrukket de tungere, søde og krydrede dufte frem for de lette og blomsteragtige. Tidligere favoritter har været: Chanel no. 5, Cristalle, Coco Chanel, Miss Dior, Narciso Rodriguez for her, Scent by Costume National og Agent Provocateur.

Jeg købte den ikke, da jeg var i Comme des Garcons-butikken i Tokyo, da jeg ikke kunne retfærdiggøre at svinge Visakortet mere. Men så er det godt, at de sælger den hos Dover Street Market, og den er endda lidt billigere end i Japan. Pris: 50 pund.

English: While in Japan I fell in love with this Comme des Garcons perfume. It’s called Dover Street Market just like the company’s mesmerizing boutique/warehouse in Dover St. in London. If you haven’t been there you should definitely go. It’s amazing, although very expensive.

The fragrance is woody, peppery and musky (the notes include bergamot, mandarin, black pepper, coriander, incense, juniper berry, cedar, labdanum, patchouli and pine). As a lot of their other perfumes, it’s unisex. The bottle is designed by the company’s incredible founder Rei Kawakubo.

This perfume is not for everyone, but it’s actually not as heavy as it sounds as a lot of the heavier notes evaporate quite quickly. But then again I’m biased as I don’t like my perfumes too light, fresh or flowery. Some of my favourites through the years have been: Chanel no. 5, Cristalle, Coco Chanel, Miss Dior, Narciso Rodriguez for her, Scent by Costume National and Agent Provocateur.

I didn’t buy this one in Japan as I had already spent too much money, so I was very happy when I found it on Dover Street Market’s website. Even better: it’s 10 pounds cheaper here than in the Comme des Garcons store in Tokyo. Price: 50 punds.

Wishlist: Summer sandals

I går begav jeg mig ind til forfærdeligt befærdede Oxford Street, for at tjekke High Street butikkernes og især Topshops skoafdelings udvalg af sommersandaler. Jeg ledte efter et praktisk og behageligt alternativ til mine trofaste (men ikke så kønne) “Jellies” og havde forbudt mig selv overhovedet at overveje plateau og høje wedges.

Jeg prøvede blandt andet denne Nicklin sandal fra Aldo. Koster 40 pund i sort og den grå er på udsalg lige nu på Aldos website.

English: Yesterday I went to the most dreaded place of all, Oxford Street and Top Shop’s shoe department to look for some practical summer sandals. I seriously need a comfortable pair as I always end up wearing my Jellies. High wedges are no-go this time. So, although they are a bit boring,  I might end up getting these Nicklin sandals from Aldo. Price 40 pounds (the grey ones are on sale right now.)

Prøvede også disse fra Kurt Geiger (Huong 120 pund) men kvaliteten var for dårlig til prisen. De ser faktisk lidt billige ud.

I also tried one these from Kurt Geiger (Huong 120 pounds) but the quality wasn’t that great considering the high price. They actually look a bit cheap.

Og jeg prøvede dem her fra Carvela (Klauss, 95 pund),

And I tried these from Carvela, Carvela (Klauss, 95 pounds).

Jeg overvejede endda at købe at par sandaler fra Office som var næsten magen til mit favoritpar fra sidste sommer, Aldos “maune”. Office’s nye version har en lavere hæl, så de egner sig bedre til hverdagsbrug. Her er et billede af Aldos version.

I even considered buying a pair from Office that is almost identical to my favourite Aldo suede wedges from last year. Main difference is that these have a lower heel and are more comfortable for everyday use. I can’t find a picture of the Office ones, but here’s Aldo’s old version.

Jeg spottede også ret mange fine på Kurt Geigers velassorterede website. Må kigge forbi butikken senere og prøve dem på. Her er nogle af dem:

I also spotted quite a few nice ones on Kurt Geigers brilliant website, so I think I’ll have to stop by the shop later. Here are some of them:

"Lotus" from KG by Kurt Geiger, 75 pounds. Synthetic material though, so might not be that comfortable. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

Kurt Geiger "Depp", 120 pounds. I quite like the quirky look of these, but would def. need to try them on. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"Links", KG by Kurt Geiger. 65 pounds. Very nice but not practical enough. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"Attila", KG by Kurt Geiger, 65 pounds (before: 100). I really like these plus they are on sale, yay!! Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"London", KG by Kurt Geiger, 59 pound (before 85). I like the basic and classic look of these and can imagine myself wearing them all summer. Photo via kurtgeiger.com
