A fairytale afternoon

My designer friend Cecilie Melli sure knows how to throw a party! She provides the best locations, drinks and sweets to any show – and that’s not even mentioning her actual runway show! This time her venue was the Hotel Continental in the heart of Oslo, that had cooked up the most beautiful ambiance of […]

Wish list


FASHION, fashionoverforty, PERSONAL STYLE

Embroideries, flowers, colors! The French brand Sinéqanone sure knows how to tick all girly boxes at once!  Adding a wonderful bounce, due to the heavy organza it’s made of, makes this skirt quite irresistible to me. It’s pricey though, so it has to go on my wish list for now. Personally I’m struggling a bit with […]

A French twist


FASHION, fashionoverforty, PERSONAL STYLE

After marrying a French man I have become aware just how much in love the world is with everything French. I didn’t really need a reminder though, as I too always had this special relationship to it.

Oh how I love a good party! The food, the drinks, the people, the outfits! Last Saturday it was time to gather our crowd and bring it on! I was delighted to put my new outfit from H & M studio on. It has a very Madonna-in-the-90s-feel, a powerful mix of feminine and masculine references. […]

Gaga for colors!


FASHION, fashionoverforty, PERSONAL STYLE

It’s no secret I’m a fan of colors. I’m naturally drawn to warm, vibrating, saturated versions. Always have been, always will be. It’n not that often that I compose a whole outfit with them though. That requires the right mood – and the right designs. You cannot get away with a brightly colored ensemble without […]

Fall favorites


FASHION, fashionoverforty, PERSONAL STYLE

You know about cravings, right? The kind that just sticks in your head and you simply have to abide by eventually? That’s how I’ve felt about red colors lately. I had to bring them (more) into my wardrobe! I’m very practical though, so just about anything red would definitely not go. But a jumpsuit in deep […]
