The shopping highlight of Copenhagen was going to Acne Archive. OH MY GOD. It is incredible. Not only do they have 70% off previous seasons collections… BUT they have unworn/unused samples from the current season. E.G. I bought a bag that I fell in love with in the Acne store but couldn’t afford for the life of me for 50% OFF at Archives. I guess it’s fair to say outlets can be hit or miss but this one was a HIT. Best hit of my life. If only the Acne Lila boot was there too.
1. American Retro jacket
2. Acne Canada scarf
3. Etoile Isabel Marant jumper
4. Wang bag
5. Zara skort
6. Toga Pulla boots
Acne Store Gammel Mønt
Saint Laurent and stories rings
Some pics from Storm Fashion
Byredo perfumes at Storm
Books + stationary… It was difficult for me to only buy one of these
Acne Archive — if you don’t go you are MISSING OUT. Do the right thing.

This past weekend I jet-setted to Copenhagen, or shall I say København (hehe). I am now in love with all things Danish. We stayed at an airbnb flat in Vesterbro, an up and coming area of Copenhagen. We hung out and shopped mostly around Vesterbro, Norrebro, and Indre By (central Copenhagen). Resisting purchasing every item that caught my eye caused me great pain and suffering. I know it’s a blessing in disguise, but I swear, shoes and clothes are haunting my thoughts and dreams. Help. I did indulge in a few bits, some you’ll see in upcoming posts and below. I must also mention that I highly recommend having brunch at Paludan or Granola. Next post I write will be a round up of Danish brands to keep in mind/stalk/buy/stop me from buying/etc.
1. Wilfred Hat
2. Kenzo Jumper
3. New Icons Jacket (H&M’s new off-duty model collection)
4. Alexander Wang Bag
6. American Retro Trousers
7. Acne Boots (yeah, I couldn’t resist)
Acne Lila Boots in Black (Danish purchase, I had to)
Brunch at Granola in Vesterbro

This happens a lot in London – sun showers, and I have to admit it’s quite a beautiful sight! Apparently I am a very lucky girl since it was raining basically the entire time that I was on vacation! I went running today and it started pouring down on me, can’t really complain though as it was quite the effective cool down. My time at Starworks has sadly come to and end, so I am currently in search of a new position in London. That’s right – I’ve decided to stay in this beautifully rainy city – I can’t seem to get enough of it! My next couple of weeks will be filled with flat hunting, job searching, and endless networking. Life is exciting my friends. I made it over to Brick Lane this past Sunday to grab some streetstyle shots which should show up on MTV Fora in the next day or two. Here is a sneak peak of some streetstyle photos and my last days at Starworks:
floral brights & striped jeans
mesh skirt – simply brilliant
time to get serious ladies!
big fan of the color blocking in this photo.. camel & brights always work in my books
jean & army
more jean buttons downs – love these on men!
Lessi – one of my future flatmates in London & oldest friend growing up in Toronto
