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:

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: ghd hair straightener

For nylig besøgte jeg min veninde i København. Hun har også langt hår og var vildt, som i sindssygt vildt, begejstret for sit nye ghd glattejern. Jeg har læst om dem, og ved godt at de er gode. Men de koster altså også mindst 1000 kroner, så den fornuftige nordjyde i mig har overbevist sig selv om, at en billig Babyliss udgave er lige så god. Problemet er bare, at det er den ikke.

For jeg slap ikke ud af døren igen, før veninden havde givet mit hår en hurtig overhaling med glattejernet. Og det blev simpelthen så fint glat og silkeblødt og giver Babyliss totalt baghjul på hårglattefronten.  Så nu ved jeg godt, hvad der står øverst på ønskelisten: ghd IV styler.

English: Last month I was in Copenhagen and went to visit an old friend. She had just bought the ghd IV hair straightener and was going on and on and on about how fabulous it is. I know that the ghd straighteners are supposed to be amazing, but they’re also expensive, so I’d convinced myself that they couldn’t be that much better than my cheap one from Babyliss.

I was wrong. My friend insisted on trying it on my hair and it completely transformed it from haystack frizz to smooth velvet. So now it’s on top of my wishlist. Costs 119 pounds here.
