Becksöndergaard – scarf with scratchy dots

BecksöndergaardBecksöndergaard scarf with scratchy dots.

I got this beautiful Becksöndergaard scarf for Christmas. I am a big fan of monochrome scarves. They go with almost everything. And the white in the scarf lightens up the face. And the black makes a connection with all the other black in my outfit. Because black is always my basic colour.

Description: A lightweight silk and wool blend scarf with a black dotty print. Style number: 62100. Size: 110×200 cm. Quality: 50% wool, 50% silk.

Depeche – black leather bag with zipper

DepecheDepeche black leather bag with zipper.

This autumn and winther this Depeche bag has been my companion every day. It has the right size for me. Not too big. But big enough to contain the most essential like my Pieces clutch, my phone, magazines (to read in the train) and maybe a pair of indoor shoes. I like the cool and simple design. And the hardware has the right proportions.

I bought it in a shop in Dragør, a small town near Copenhagen, on a shopping trip with my sister and my mother. Actually my mother paid the bag, so it was a gift. The price was 1200 dkk.

Depeche is a Danish brand founded in 1999 focusing on leather accessories. Read about Depeche here.

Essie – let it shine

EssieEssie – let it shine.

This top coat makes my nails shine. And contributes to a polished look. I don’t wear nail colour. I always wear dresses which have got so much personality that I can wear them on their own. Just adding black basics and basic jewellery. Simple and chic. That is my ‘dress code’.

Kangol – black wool beret with leather

Kangol KangolKangol – black wool beret with leather.

Years ago I had a beret like this. And I loved it. It is not easy for me to find hats that suit me. But this one does. So this Christmas I put it on my wish list. And my wish was fulfilled. I am so happy for it. It is a classic made by Kangol. Actually Field Marshal Montgomery wore a Kangol beret as he commanded the allied troops in World War II (cf. the painting of Montgomery, painted  by Reginald Henry Lewis, 1946).

Description: Wool Monty, military beret, 100% wool.

& Other Stories – black loose-fit dress

& Other Stories& Other StoriesOther Stories – black loose-fit dress with pockets.

I already have this & Other Stories dress in green with pearl print. Now I also have this black version. I like the loose sixties cut. It is not that easy to see that it is actually the same dress. The fabric makes a big difference. The green dress has a shining surface. The black dress has a matt surface. It is the same fabric. But the black has the reverse on the outside. The black dress was sold out in my size. So I sized down. That is no problem because the fit is very loose. The size difference also makes the two dresses even more different. Unfortunately, the stitching is not so good. So I had to restitch the hem of the dress and the sleeves. I usually accesorize this ‘little black dress’ with statement earrings and rings.

Description: Relaxed and versatile, this knee-brushing dress with front seam pockets is a chic day-to-night alternative that provides multiple styling options. Round neck. Concealed zip and hook fastening, centre back. Bracelet sleeves. Model wears: UK 10/EU 36/US 6. Length of dress: 92 cm (size 36). 100% viscose. Product ID: 666360201410.

Dior Poison – my winther perfume

Dior PoisonDior Poison.

This winther my perfume is Dior Poison. It is heavy, sweet and spicy. Perfect for cold weather. The colder the weather is, the more heavy I like my perfume to be. A heavy perfume and summer just don’t go well together. In general I like oriental, spicy and warm perfumes.

Description: Some perfumes are born a myth. Provocative and mysterious since its creation, Poison is Dior’s ultimate weapon of seduction. Its exceptional alchemy is created by a rich blend of spicy, fruity and amber notes with sensual honey and musk accords. An unforgettable and charismatic oriental fragrance.

Whiite – Black and white polka dot scarf

WhiiteWhiite – Black and white polka dot scarf in silk and wool.

For autumn and winter I always have a big warm scarf. And it is always in black and white. Which I find goes well with almost everything. The black colour resonates all the black in my outfit. At least my coat and footwear are always black. The white colour resonates the white in the eye and lightens up the face. I use it as a scarf with my coat. And – and that is the trick – I always have a warming shawl with me. I simply fold out the scarf and use it as a shawl if I am cold. Then I do not need to always have a cardigan with me. And some of my autumn dresses are not suitable for cardigans. Either because of their cut or because of their heavy material. This year I have invested in this Whiite scarf. The dots make me smile 🙂 .

Beskrivelse: Tørklæde i flot klassisk farvekombination. Sort bund med off-white prikker (ca. 3,5 cm i diameter). Let og blød kvalitet. 55% silke, 45% uld. Tørklædet er en klassiker fra Whiite og kan styles på mange måder. Flot farvekombination der kan bruges hele året. De off-white prikker giver dit mørke outfit en flot kontrast. Tørklædet er ultrablødt at bære om halsen. Oversized. 100 x 200 cm.

Amust scarf with feather print

AmustAmust scarf with feather print.

I love beautiful patterns. So I fell in love with this pretty scarf. I bought it for 200 dkk in the Saint Tropez shop on ‘Strøget’ in Copenhagen. It is from a Danish accessory label called Amust. Amust accessories are available online here. But at present they do not have the feather scarf. This scarf is perfect to adorn a little black dress. The black in the scarf will repeat the black colour of the dress. And the white in the scarf will brighten up your face. I will also use the scarf to spice up a black and white dress. Or I will use it in a pattern mix outfit.

The scarf measures 95 cm x 190 cm. In the photo you see only half of the scarf. It is made of viscose and it is very very soft. And it does not get creased. I like.
