Wearing: H&M customized sweater// Aremis vintage dress// Dr. Martens Tanner shoes

Apologies for weak posting this week! We've experienced a hurricane, horizontal rain showers and 10 minutes of normal light a day. Managed to snap a workwear outfit today under dubious light conditions. More posts to come!

Have a good one! xxx Iben

Vintage three-piece suit mad men style

Wearing: Three-piece wool suit vintage from Etsy// Hat by Cavalli è Nastri in Milan

There's this one serious obsession I can't seem to kick. I've got a thing with two and preferrably three piece suits from the 60's and 70's. They're just so divine! The quality is so much better than modern clothing, this suit right here is 100% wool - it's going to live to see my granddaughter. Let's pray she's got a thing for fashion!

How to make your own lip scrub

I read somewhere that the best lip scrub you can make yourself. Add equal parts vaseline and demerara (brown sugar) in a jar, and mix. Apply to lips, scrub and wipe of. Perfect before applying lipstick! I use it twice a week.

New in: Transparent cape by Kitty Joseph

Wearing: Plastic cape by Kitty Joseph

I saw this transparent cape at a fair a year ago, and I got to meet the designer and see her clothes. She's such a talent and I love her quirky things. Check out her designs here:

When it's getting cold my Carven wool skirt is the perfect companion. Bought in a size to big during a trip to Copenhagen two years ago, it's a winter staple in my wardrobe.

My very first makeup tutorial - how to create a green smokey eye look

This is my first try doing a makeup tutorial, so I appreciate all the feedback I can get!

Mongolian fur coat

I got this treasure at a vintage store in Copenhagen last winter, and I think it's by far the best purchase I've ever done. A genuine mongolian fur coat doesn't come by every day!

Blue smokey eye look

I decided to play around a little more with makeup, and created this look with a new eyeshadow and lipstick by MAC cosmetics. First I applied a primer (MAC prep + prime), then MAC Mineralize SPF15 foundation using a brush. Then I applied my long time favourite concealer from Lancôme followed by eye primer, highlighter and a bronzer by Tarte I use for shading.  My friend Regine recently recommended me to try the dipbrow pomade for eyebrows by Anastasia, and it's truly great - I'm so pleased both with consistency and the ability to draw "more" brow. The powder thingy from Makeup Store just didn't cut it. I use dark brow, and I think it's a suitable color. As for the blush, I cling to MAC peaches sheertone blush.

Done with complexion, and I'm adding my new MAC eyeshadow STEAMY to the inner eye towards the middle. Then I add TILT shadow (both frost shadows) in a triangle shape at the end of my eyelid. Use a crease brush like Sephora airbrush crease to add a brown shadow all the way from the corner of your eye and outwards, between brow and lid. Add some eyeliner (I prefer cheapo option by L'oreal!) and finish with your loose powder of choice. I prefer Chanel Poudre universelle Libre.

For the lips I'm in love with my new lipstick by MAC called Full Speed. I'm testing these make up tutorials and I hope you like them.

Out and about exploring new color schemes. It's getting cold, so I've made sure to stock up on Falke's new series of colored wool stockings. Finally they're making colors! The past winters have been so incredibly dull with my brown wool one!

Furry earmuffs

Wearing: HM sweater/ Vintage blouse/ Earmuffs Century 29It's getting cold outside and I've pulled out my Century 29 earmuffs from the drawer. They're like a comfy silencer as well, when I'm riding the bus I hear nothing but a slight murmur.
