It is all about retro

Nice words has many meanings.

Retro means old school stuff with a nostalgic touch… and yes….

6 years is a lot… which makes my look rather retro, because I just

loved each look, for everything it could make me feel.

On the first look you see a pair of short jeans, which I still have – I bought them in 2006 …. I have not found another pair yet that is able to replace the way they make me feel.

Found out more about the looks on my profile on lookbook

What about you, do you have any looks that you really cherish?

Or a piece of clothing which just follow you?

Let me know, so I can get inspired for more articles about retro

Give me a comment or send me an email with a picture of your beloved items.

To care about nature and people when producing fashion items

is a quest of its own when designing a collection of stylish clothing.

Nevertheless the Danish Fashion and Conscious Designer Stinne Gorell

is exactly doing what everybody else find difficult to engage in:

Making fashion with a real good story due to the sustainable and

responsible behavior in the supply chain.

Stinne Gorell creates knitwear in all forms such as;
Hats, gloves/mittens, ponchos and much more.

The items are made out of the philosophy that you get a product with many functions and combinations to suit your personal style.

Danish women in private homes make the handmade part of the collection all over Denmark.

All machine knitted products are made in Bolivia by a Danish owned FAIRTRADE certified company.

As Stinne Gorell states herself on her webpage: “We only use fur for tassels from free-range highland alpacas, died of natural causes.”

piece 4 love are so happy being able to help Stinne Gorell on her responsible mission, which is why, we brought in her products in the piece 4 love shop.

The next following days, we will post more pictures with items from

Stinne Gorell, and we will upload more products in the shop….

Have a look at the poncho and the beanie from Stinne Gorell here

You can also tjeck out my post of the look on lookbook here

Help My Find My Style II

It is awesome. On my question : how to reuse my pants, I got this good respond from Isa – you can see the full answer by clicking here .

Basically she adviced me to make my pants into a bag ! Which is exactly what I will do … when I found some other pants that can replace these….

and how funny is this? …

today it was announced on Facebook as always =) that a dress swop-shop near my place just opened. You pay a one-year member fee, and then you can swtich your still functional dresses that you do not use, whith other peoples’s functional dresses that they do not use. It is amazing when you have to many dresses and you do not want to wear any of them.

The name of the shop is Resecond and the concept is great:

Women need dresses, but the world does not need more production

I would though have problems wearing some body elses used underwear.

If you know Danish take a look at the article by clicking here, if not take a look at it anyway and save the address of the shop to when you come to CPH.

Visit Resecond  Jægersborggade 49 at Nørrebro opening hours wednesday-friday 12-18 og saturday 11-15.

I will for sure go visit the shop and make some new look for lookbook with Sunny, Hep Hey  … back to my thesis….

Just beacuse you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

Happy Day

It is a happy day and I realized that me and my thesis partner are almost done with our project. The sun is shinning and my best friend Sunny came by to make some foto shoots for lookbook.nu I really enjoy these small events with Sunny because we always have fun together. Especially now when the thesis is taking so much of my time.

 

We went to the local park to take the pictures, and I couldn’t help it, I had to play on the pieces of wood at the children’s playground. Sunny of course had to climb a tree.

And this is a reminder to you out there. Remember to be happy with the people that makes you happy.


 

All my clothings today are more than one year old … brands are Bellstaff, KEIR, Markberg, Made By, Fendi

Help Me Find My Style

 

In my carriere of always assisting others to grow and live their dreams, I sometimes forget myself and loose my style.

 

I have style – , but it happens that I really fall into the traps – I buy pieces of clothings because I like them in the moment I see them, and sometimes I mix things horribly together

 

 

There is also a little default I need to do something about, I keep sticking to clothings that are more than 3 years old.

 

I have pants and boots which are more than 5 years, and they are still duable due to their quality and due to my master-in-shoe-guy at the central station in CPH. But it is getting kind of a habbit -to keep clothings that have already done their duty. Maybe it is my let-us-save-the-environment attitude that comes into play. I really need to do sth about it, becuase it happens that I can spend twenty minutes on thinking of what to wear and end up with sth I’m actually not sure whether is good anymore or even worse I feel borring and downgraded… common I’m 35 should I not have learned that yet ?

 

And that is why I was thinking of you out there. Maybe you could help me find new pieces to my wardrobe so I – instead of hating my closet – cannot wait to opening it in the morning to wear all the new pieces 4 love that I’ve got.

 

I am quite sticky when it comes to buying my clothes. I prefere to know the whole story behind the product. I need to know that all living member of the supply-chain are respected persons and animals who would only be treated as you would treat your kids. Furthermore it would be lovely if there was no pollution at all when producing – but okey… who can shit with out leaving a track ?

 

But all in all I like to spend my money on pieces made by Love and with respect for nature and living creatures =)

 

Please join me here on my blog or on facebook

 

The next two months I will collect all your advices and try to buy the products for my wardrobe so I can give my self the perfect style for Christmas.

 

I will upload a small film and single pictures of my  pieces 4 love.

I would like to get your opinion: should I keep them or not?

And any suggestion in how I eventually can replace them is welcomed.
