It’s All About You

 

In your life it is about you, in other people’s life, it is about them.

 

The most important thing you can do is to find people who are on the same mission as you are. Then you will experience interaction that will benefit you and your life journey.

Dreams Come Through – oooh yes they doooo

You can believe me or not, but it is the truth, dreams come through.

It is about taking a little step, day by day, and then one day your are there.

If you in your daily life feel negative tensions without being able to know why, then it could be, that you are not following your dream. Maybe because you not even know what dream you would like to or is able to follow.

Why Piece 4 Love became a Blog

explaining why the blog Piece 4 Love became reality

never occurred to me being necessary, but …wauw … did I not learn
anything at University..?…

the Why,,,

is the most important!

The why is what makes me wake up in the morning!

The why is what makes me take more than 1000 pictures a week!

The why is what makes me write at night and not see my friends!

And why is it then?

Since I was little I wanted to save the world, by helping people respect

themselves, each other and the nature….

BUT

then in my early 20’ies I forgot everything…. because.. well,,,

I could give other people

the blame…

but I have grown, I know now that I got blinded…

Blinded by things and stuff,

believing that I really would win if I died with the most shoes…
(I still do not remember how I got into this stupid idea!)

So in the aim of winning I saw myself in one big mess of things… clothes, shoes, accessories… you name it,,, I bet you know it. The feeling of being better, just because you bought an extra pair of black shoes… but only for a short time…

blog about mess

Look at me at this picture, I am on my way to Italy for 4 weeks,

and I have so many things that I cannot decide which things to bring.

And even when  you see me smile and look good at this picture from 2007,

I was sadAnna

really sad, I was about 30 years old, and ready to die.

Did not know what to do with my life,

I lost, what I for 10 years worked my but out to get.

Boyfriend, friends, network, house, everything, I even lost myself.

Even if I in 2008 had a comic series out on the internet,  with more than 50000 unique visitors in 24 days, from all over the world,,,, I dropped it… I did not know what to do with all that people, I did not know what to do with the internetpage and I did not know how to network anymore.

Silli Anina blog

This drawing is from the sketch when I in church Christmas eve, is told that I do not get my bags and shoes with me when I die…

And this is why I started Piece 4 Love, because you can get yourself

all the pieces of things, clothes, shoes and accessories you wish for.

But the most important thing in life is love.

Love from you to yourself.

Love from you to the world.

Love from the world to you.

So the Why of creating this blog is because I would like to tell you

that you are the most important piece 4 love in your life.

You are the one bringing love to yourself.

You are the one bringing love to your daily life.

You are the one bringing love to the world.

Sometimes it can be difficult to live life!

But I have finally found my way, a way that works,

without buying me out of the problems.

You are a piece 4 love reading my story here,,,

it was quite challenging writing my inner feelings out,

about my Why…

but I really hope you enjoyed, feel free to comment…or even better:

That makes me dance =)

ps. next post will be about Marie,,, my partner in crime

My Father’s Jacket

My Father's Jacket 2014-07-23 10.01.30 2014-07-23 10.01.33 2014-07-23 10.01.39 2014-07-23 10.01.56

 

This post is dedicated my Father’s Jacket.

He got it from my little sister when she worked at Bruuns Bazar

like many years ago…

A lovely present.

How it ended up in my closet… I do not remember.

But this fall I am curious to see how many looks I can mix with My Father’s Jacket.

Underneath the jacket I have my little black skirt from Samsoe & Samsoe 
and a black top from designers remix… shoes my beloved Lola Ramona

About my hair… oh yes I know it is a pony tale,,, but I think it fitted well today.

And as the former rollerblader, I couldn’t stop wall riding the bank!

Look Good & Save the World

wear your father’s jacket!

Clog

Clog for Fun

How funny is this, a little clog, only one.

And why do we sell this on our shop?

Because it is unique there is only one,
and it is made in Denmark for an English shoe brand…
Kennedy Shoes, who has made shoes since 1865.

Anna found it in at her friends home on its way to the  garbage… but since Anna hates to throw out things, she thought, “HEY we can upcycle it!” So here it is, vintage clog from Kennedy Shoes, we do not know when it is from, but it is definitely a piece 4 love

Clog SONY DSC SONY DSC   If you would like to purchase the clog you can find it here, but remember there is only one =)

Look of the Week: Stinne Gorell & Patrizia Pepe

 

piece4love_lookbook_june_SG2 piece4love_lookbook_june_SG4

lookbook piece 4 love Stinne Gorell

Granny Poncho by Stinne Gorell

The need for warm stuff in my wardrobe

The look of the week is a little off season… normally I would show summer items, but the weather in Denmark is so not to rely on, so I need to make sure I have something for the fresh and windy evenings.

The shoes from Bertie, I have had for a couple of years now, maybe 3, I only use them for some occasions, since I mostly wear flats or sneaks. But Bertie is good at making at comfy small heeled shoes.

My pants from Patrizia Pepe are one of my biggest pieces 4 love at the moment, made of wool, silk and polyester. They are good for work and for going out.

The Granny Poncho from Stinne Gorell is handmade in Denmark and made of 100% alpaca wool.

The sweat below the Poncho is a classic round neck of 100% Merino Wool.

As you know I buy seldom new pieces to my closet, but the Patrizia Pepe pants I bought in May on sale in a very fancy shop in Illum, and they were on 70%, I ended up paying less than 50 eur since I also had some points on my bonus card for that shop. So even if I wear the pants so much that they die before the year is over, I still made a good choice in buying pants that fits for several situations in my life. They make me feel comfortable and by that I look good.

I tried to find the same pants at the official Patrizia Pepe shop, I couldn’t, but oohh my they have a lot of other nice things on sale

The Granny Poncho from Stinne Gorell is an accessible piece 4 love since it is not something I found on sale

… believe it or not…

Stinne Gorell is one of the Designers in Denmark, who by her business model really tries to make you look good and save the world.

Which is why we at Piece 4 love help her sell her items… if you like the idea of making products by fair trade and respect for nature..

take a look at Stinne Gorell’s items at the shop.

Piece 4 love earns 10% of the shop price,

These money will be brought into piece 4 love, in order to make more nice stuff for you.

The rest 90 % goes to Stinne Gorell in order for her to expand fair trade business and responsible behavior.

Thanks for reading, if you do want to ask any questions, feel free =)

Borrow instead of Buy

Why buy ? When you can borrow!

This post is dedicated to friends who let you borrow their pieces because

they do not use that piece anymore. It can be a shirt, a jewelry or in this

post it is a bag.

Actually it is because me and Marie (cowriter on piece 4 love) has borrowed something from one and another.

She borrowed my briefcase from Carlend and I borrowed her bag from

Mandarina Duck.

And I just love this bag. First of all, it is not quite mine, so I take extra

good care of it. I know Marie takes good care of my Carlend piece.

 

Borrowing things from one another –
is good for the earth.

 

So it is good for the long lasting live cycles to borrow things from

one another. It is responsible behavior.

The other good thing is, that the bags are not hiding somewhere,

collecting dust. It is in use, and that is what pieces are for.

The last good thing is that when I do not use the piece anymore

I just give it back to Marie. And if I need the briefcase from Carlend for

a given occasion I just call Marie.

You save money, and you save production every time you reuse a piece

or let other people use it for you. Saving your things in your wardrobe

just make them fade and look strange. Trust me…
if you do not, have a look here 

Saving the world is a big quest, but by doing little efforts everyday

it is possible. And it makes us look good.

Whether or not you would like to borrow out your stuff or borrow from

other, just rethink before you buy… maybe you already do have one thing

in your wardrobe that fulfill your momental need.

 

Use or things or let other…..

Look Good, Save the World and be a Piece 4 Love 4 Life

The Bag; new topic on piece 4 love by Marie

Introduction to my term of a bag

The bag is like a long time friend, you can bring with you everywhere. Many of us use a bag everyday and couldn’t imagine a life without it. Its essential for us to have something to carry our stuff around in – and therefor a bag comes in many shapes and materials to fit the right purpose. I am inclined to say you can never have to much of a good thing, but then again I have little over 150 bags, purses/wallets and suitcases which I have consumed/accumulated through the past 20 years of my life. Other women have a weakness for shoes, jewellery etc. but bags are my biggest weakness, it has been like that ever since I was a little girl, and I fell in love for the very first time, in the cutest light blue plastic basket that I just had to have – I did get it and I had it with me everywhere, even though I most admit my mom had to carry it for me most days by the end of the day as fatigue would creep up on me *giggles* the pleasure of being a child.

Growing up with bags

As I grew older I have come to discover that bags come in many shapes and therefor have different uses, in this part of the blog is where I will guide you through the world of bags, because it can be a jungle to find the right one at times, I will also make an additional guide about the materials that bags are made of and how to care for them. So you can renew their look and make sure it’s a bag you will have for many years to come/be a bag for life. Look Good & Save the World with The perfect Bag

3 in 1 – just change shoes or accessories

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.
