Me & Marie went out photoshooting for lookbook

in new areas of Copenhagen,

this time Bellahøj.

Such a lovely day, with lots of sun & fun.

My clothings are all pieces 4 love
that has been in my closet for some time.

But I enjoy to mix and do different things

with all my clothing.

The cardigan is from Betty Barclay (2010)
suitable for daily and party use.

The Samsoe & Samsoe Dress that suits
every location.

And I can use every top and every kind of leggins
to the to above mentioned items.

I lovet it… and I of course love my sunglasses from Dior.

Look Good & Save the World –

buy clothes that you want to use everyday

Look Good

I bought the jumpsuit on a group on facebook the other day less than 50 euro, only used twice,, and it is a mix of silk and cotton…. it is my piece 4 love 4 the summer 2014, it is lovely, and I feel as if I was home, wearing it today at work.

At work I realized that my new piece 4 love can change my style just by changing shoes and accessories. Which is why my post today is called 3 in 1…

The first shoot with the roses is a more casual daily look, wearing open ballerina, the loose fitting vest from designers remix with a little luxurious touch from the unique pair of handmade earrings from Pia Andersen.

In the second shoot I changed to my dune leather lace up shoes and used my handmande silk tie from Mette Greta, in order to make a more party like look.

But then I realized I can also make a look for work, binding my tie and wearing the vest again.

How I just love to mix my clothings, and know I can use it for more than one kind of activity.

I love my new jumpsuit, and since it is second hand it really makes me look good and save the world at the same time.

learning to be happy


Leave a comment

You can look as good as you want – but will that ever make you happy?

Yes, I am telling you straight ahead that your look
has only a little part to do with making you happy.

Sorry,

… I got a chock too.

When I was teenager.. around 16-17 I got the idea that it was all about the look.

I dreamed about being a model, I competed in a miss event and tried to contact photographers and model agencies… but I was not happy, even if I some where knew I looked good. And since I was not strong enough to be patient on getting jobs, I just concluded, that I was not enough good looking, and that I did not deserved better….

learning to be happy

 

But later, I understood something really important…

I hope you understand it before I did? – how to be happy 

Of course feeling good about how you look makes you feel more satisfied,
but if you are not happy in advance, a new pair of shoes or some other small thing are far from what create long lasting happiness inside your body.

Now I have finally realized… (20 years later…)

that I feel happy with myself when I

  • make things that make my life easy without harming other people
  • am together with people who makes me feel good and who make and give me space for development
  • when I make sure that I eat good food and sleep all night

I would like to give this knowledge to you and other people who have difficulties in finding happiness….no matter how you look.

You can see more stuff about how to be happy about yourself right here

But

why am I then on lookbook?

why do I sell beauty accessories?

and

how do that fit with my eager to save the world?

Beautiful things make me happy – upcycling things make me feel I am contributing to a better world which make me even more happy.

Lookbook and all its contributors gives me valuable inspiration in my way of making it easier to chose clothing in my own closet.

I sell beauty accessories, first of all because I love them. I know all of the products in my shop by heart and I love to make other people happy with upcycling or products with a really good story.
(read the article about the Danish Fairtrade Fashion Designer here)

By writing my thoughts about life and beauty on this page I feel I can contribute to the idea: look good and save the world…

Have you thought about what makes you happy?

Tell me about it, if you like,
Either in comments or by mail anna@calledda.com if you like to be anonymous.

Until then, see you on twitter or instagram…..

I you follow me and make a post tagged #piece4love or #lookgoodsavetheworld I will follow you =)

and remember:

you are a piece 4 love, cherish and take care of yourself everyday then it is much easier to look good and save the world.

It is all about retro

 

hm_roteret.jpgIt's all about retro

total_loose_der_roteret.jpg

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.

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
