H&M dress with frills on the sleeves


H&M dress with frills on the sleeves.

I have had my eyes on this dress for a while. And also tried it on in an H&M shop. Now it is only 120 dkk on sale. It is incredible that you can buy a dress at that price. Especially with all the detailing on the sleeves. It is tempting. But I have a principle. If I buy a new dress, one of the other dresses in my wardrobe has to leave. And I do not want to get rid of any of the dresses in my wardrobe right now…

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.

H&M black dress with white cat print


H&M black dress with white cat print.

This H&M dress has become one of my favourites this season. A black and white graphic print is always a winner. And this print makes you look twice. To see what it actually is. My first thought was kangaroos. But at second glance I saw the white cats. And I love cats. My son also sees black princesses holding flowers in the hands. I bought the dress in a H&M store in Copenhagen. It was in the window and it immediately caught my attention. Even though I was not out shopping. It is not sold online in this fabric. But in other fabrics. However, online H&M has a blouse with the cat print. Look here.

Beskrivelse: Knælang og let figursyet kjole i vævet kvalitet. Har åbning i ryggen, som holdes samlet af skjulte knapper. Lange ærmer. Uden for. 100% viskose. Varenr. 53-2066.

& 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.

Samsøe Samsøe – printed silk dress

Samsøe Samsøe

Samsøe Samsøe – printed silk dress.

I have had my eyes on this dress for a while. I love the print. It reminds me of Matisse. Of his paper cuttings. Matisse is one of my favourite artists. Now the dress is on sale. It is tempting… But the dress is already sold out in my size. So the decision is easy. And I cannot buy every dress that I like. But for me it is a big satisfaction that I can put them on my blog. In that way they become mine in some way.

Beskrivelse: Style Loaf dress. Feminin og flot kjole fra Samsøe Samsøe i et skønt mønster. Kjolen sidder flot på. Shell: 93 % silk, 7% elasthane. Lining: 100% viscose.

H&M – perfect black fleece tights

H&M H&MH&M – perfect black fleece tights.

I will tell you a secret. How I can wear dresses year round. And keep warm even in the winther. The secret is the tights. Different kinds of black opaque tights. In the autumn I wear Oroblu Chantal 120. But when it is really cold I wear fleece tights. And this year H&M has made some that are absolutely fabulous. They have the right black colour. The right matt surface. And on the leg they look like normal opaque tights. They are absolutely perfect. And so comfortable and warm. Not too tight. I hate tight tights. So I always buy them 1 or 2 sizes bigger. When I find something perfect I stock up on it. So under my bed I have a box full of these perfect black H&M fleece tights.

Beskrivelse: Tætte strømpebukser med blød fleece på inderside. Elastik i taljen. 3% elastan, 97% polyamid. Varenr. 46-4554.
