Manic

by laurenlux

…is the most fitting word I could think of for this post. Work has been mental — in a good way though. Got a Selfridges event tomorrow that I am helping to run (mad hatters tea event at the Sanderson hotel!), fashion dinner next week (where we’ll talk about digital insights in the luxury fashion industry), and starting with Jamie Oliver and Sweaty Betty as new clients next month which is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I am actually in love with Sweaty Betty’s workout gear. I’m not gonna lie, being Canadian and all has sort of made me biased towards lululemon but after attending Sweaty Betty’s press day yesterday I fell in love. They really embrace fashion in workout/dance/yoga gear. I’m eyeing a layered crop tank at the minute and their dip dye (obviously) capri leggings which are already sold out online. Bummer.

On another note, I am really embracing this sunny weatha. I thought I would take a few outfit pics while it lasts, which, in London usually isn’t for very long. These were taken on the weekend around Portobello road and in Chelsea after brunch at Bluebird cafe. I do love a good brunch.

Acne Archive

by laurenlux

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.

København

by laurenlux

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.
