Sales have started in the US, with them the frenzy building up tpo Black Friday culminating in Thanksgiving Weekend that will be (according to my experience) spent on sofa with that ‘stuffed cat’ feeling. Yet I couldn’t bring myself to entertain the idea of writing about sales as one thing I felt went unnoticed today and IT deserves to be brought up.
Underneath all tempting sales and discount posts, shopping bag, outfits and pretty cakes I saw just about 2 Insta’s – 2 posts mentioning that today’s sales also coincident with (drumroll here)’International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women’. Ka-pow!
Now I am not much of a writer, I am more of a deliver-punch-line-or-a-visual-comment kind of gal so just bare with me.
Here I am pledging my case for modern feminism, 20 reasons why we need it in random order

OK so I have a penchant for black. But than the cut is what it’s all about and just let it to supernova Helena Christensen to design a perfect pair of tailored pants together with InWear, which is my favourite item from the collaboration. Now the whole range consists of some really nice pieces that are perfect for modern women, the collection having that day-to-night quality that I am so very much fond of, and these pants would as easily go with sneakers and cool coat as they do with heels and sleek srcaf for a more cocktail-ish look.

Chill is catching on and it’s (duuh, late bloomer over here…) time to wrap up. Now this coat combines everything I consider a greta coat should have: sharp lines,great (olive) colour & is double-breasted (nice price as well).It also goes so, so nicely with this amazing Acne scarf, I love the tones ranging from dark green to brown t burgundy, it gives such a nice contrast yet kind of sums up autumn mood. A good classic to keep me warm now when cold weather is at the doorstep.

Ph: The Line
For some reason I have had denim on my mind lately. You would think that at this point one would be more than fed up with shades of blue, yet deisgners seem to be pumping out pieces that dreams are made of. Those Vétemants jeans might be an invetsment but after I have seen them countless of time during fashion weeks rest assure it is a worthy one. The sam goes for the Rachel Comey jacket, at the end who doesn’t want a shearling lined denim show off?
I love cool independent brands that emerge here and there which usually have a nice price point as well as great quality. This sweater from instance is such an example- I got it from online store called Edited which has recently started to ship internationally (within Europe and China) and besides stocking up their own label (more on that next week) they also have great selection of pieces form both emerging and established designers.*
OK, so since the theme of the week has been #showyoursexy, I wanted to share my personal favourite a black white #fbf photo from Pfw. Now daring look I might ad, no-nothing underneath that beautifully Chantilly piece and just a blazer nonchalantly thrown over (as documented by Grazia.it, but that bit will be published later). There are few designers that do these lace blouses quite as Alexander McQueen does -delicately fetishistic yet so easy to incorporate in your everyday wardrobe. because either you are feeing the nipple or not this sums up a perfect Friday night-out outfit, no?
I love the idea of subtlety; a bare shoulder under mens shirt, lace sleeve under a blazer.
hair loosely pulled up to reveal elongated neck; a sheer dress worn together with brogues.
It is the small signals, subtle hints that leave story untold that I find sexy.

Zalando x CK Underwear has invited me to share my thoughts on what I consider sexy as a part of their #shareyoursexy campaign, a tribute to all the amazing things in this world that makes us feel special. If you happen to snoop on my Insta you will find a photo dedicated to the campaign and some instructions how to win a gift voucher- the only thing you have to do is share your thoughts on what you find sexy.
Search, search and you will find. Out of all the things I have regretted not buying, only one got away( a Dolce&Gabbana black knit with floral embroidery and at the sales point it was way out of my league), but for most items if you combine a dash of obsession+ internet skills+ wast knowledge of every single store there is, you might get lucky. An even luckier than you think. I really wanted the knitted Gala dress by Acne and just never get my hands on ordering it, before I knew the dress was sold out. But internet Gods have been generous and whips, the dress got re-stocked here and with a nice discount I might ad.
