Her style - Julia Restoin Roitfeld









Julia's style is ultra feminine and sexy - without being too flashy or glamorous. I'ts more sensual and pretty kind of sexy. She wears a lot of skirts and dresses, but she really mixes things up with color, print and texture. The mother of one, entrepreneur and daughter of a style icon, Carine Roitfeld obviously has good style in her dna.

Looking for the dress




I'm getting married! Just kidding. I really don't like brides dresses but these three dresses above would be suitable for such an occasion. You can dance in them and more importantly, eat in them! The top one is from Celine's pre-fall collection.

Sharper and Darker


I haven't done my eyebrows in years other than just plucking out a stray hair here and there. Now that I´m getting older (or maybe it's just fashion) I think it is time for a chance. As we know  well shaped eyebrows can make dramatic difference in your appearance because they in fact frame your face. According to the Eyebrow Queen Anastasia there are a few rules to follow so I will.  Here you can see her do Oprah's eyebrows

Her style - Aziza Azim






This girl, Aziza Azim is so cool! I literally wanted to share all the pictures of her from her blog. 
I love how she can wear skinny jeans and a simple top and then she just kills it with her shoes and jackets. She's definitely someone I'm going to follow for inspiration.

Sleep


My house is a mess today (as you can see here on instagram). We are switching rooms, my 23 years old are moving back home.  We had a spare room that used be our bedroom but for the past two years it has turn into storage. Now my living room is packed with boxes and...   So here are some images of inspiring bedrooms to get me in the mood for some bedroom decoration:-)

In the box






Want to know what Anna Wintour editor of American Vogue is wearing today? She is wearing a knee length, short sleeved, round-neck, printed dress (Prada), nude sling-back pumps (Manolo's), a crystal necklace, big black sunglasses and sitting on her head is the perfect blown out bob. Want to know what she'll be wearing tomorrow? Same thing. We are not talking about having a certain kind of style like let's say Kate Moss or Laura Bailey. We are talking exactly the same outfit every day. So why the sartorial lethargy? This woman sits front row at every fashion show, is friends with all the biggest designers alive and thus has access to every piece of garment you could ever only dream off. She works in fashion for crying out loud...which is supposed to be creative and constantly changing. My guess. She is a workaholic, holds a powerful job with a huge responsibility, she is structured and knows what feels comfortable yet presentable and  knows what suits her body type. This is almost no different from the suit and tie combo every business man wears every single day. Just the feminine version. So what she really is, is first and foremost, a businesswoman. Want to know what she never wears (aside from an all black outfit)? A bag. Why? Probably because there is no time for clutter. So even though my man repelling self might think that Anna Wintour has the worst style and most out-dated and boring outfit(s) known to mankind. She still holds the most powerful position in fashion. Respect.

Accidental tourist






Here is some inspiration for a touristic outfit. A hat makes all the difference. Above is my new favorite terracotta colored t-shirt from Zara and Teva's trending orthopedic sandals. I never liked the Birkenstock trend... maybe I will have to cave in, in the name of comfort :)

Bags I love


I was asking my sister the other day about some inspiration for a bag - should I buy a new one. She wanted to know how much it could cost and I had no clue. She mentioned Proenza Schouler and Chloé and then I knew that maybe about half or one third of the price of a Proenza bag might be suitable. I did a little cyber browsing and came up with these three. Reasons: It has to be a shoulder or cross body, not too big, preferably black leather (or red suede with fringes, haha) and be from a label that I like.

 Elizabeth & James leather bucket bag 
A.P.C. Black leather half moon bag 
Sandro red suede fringe bucket bag

I still don't know which one I like most...

Organic cotton


T-shirts are a wardrobe staple but I always seem to have trouble finding good quality, reasonably priced t-shirts. Zara now has a good selection of organic cotton t-shirts. Got myself three of them today (both v and round neck), since I will be spending the next few days in a slightly warmer climate.  I really love the color selection. I even bought a color that I never ever wear - terracotta - even the name  sounds quite frightening! Can't wait to wear it though :)

I'm sorry miss Olivia Pope!


Strong female T.V. characters keep on inspiring women's wardrobes as they always have. My own wardrobe was, while I was still a teen  inspired by the ever stylish Lisa Bonet aka Denise Huxtable. Especially during the Different World seasons. I taped every episode, watched them again and again and paused on each new outfit Denise wore and analysed it to pieces. My next silver screen crush was Carrie Bradshaw, but since then nobody has come even close to inspire me the least. Even Claire Underwood doesn't do it for me. Let alone Olivia Pope. Don't get me wrong, I've watched Scandal to oblivion, but those slacks... Ugh! A few days ago I noticed a Facebook status from one of my male friends, stating: "It's not hard to find your feminine side while watching Olivia Popes wardrobe choices".  I went: Seriously bro!?! I mean Kerry Washington is a fine woman but Olivia Pope's style choices are so sterile it kind of hurts. Well that's my opinion and there might be a good reason that there is now a term in the (urban) dictionary that rhymes with fortuneteller. I give up - My name is Eva and I'm a man repeller. Above are some non television related, inspiring goddesses, that have some admirable style, a good imagination and, last but not least, the man repelling factor :)

Vila


My summer wardrobe is literally non-existing. Living in Iceland you have more or less the same wardrobe all year around. In summer you just skip your winter jacket.  But while travelling to places where the heat manages to rise above 20 degrees Celsius you need to pack something lighter than jeans and a sweater. I browsed Vila's website the other day, to check up on some affordable pieces and I was happy to see that there is some good stuff there.

In the kitchen - Spanish omelette


I love it when I can make something delicious, right out of the refrigerator, when I think there is nothing there. The other day I did just that. I made a Spanish omelette the Catalonian way. I didn't have parsley so I used rosemary instead.

Spanish omelette for two

Ingredients


2 large potatoes

1 onion
4 eggs
3 garlic cloves 
salt
pepper
rosemary
olive oil 

Method

Cut potatoes into cubes and boil in water for 5-7 minutes
Finely slice the onion. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a ovenproof skillet over medium heat, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes (here you can add more olive oil ) and cook with the onion for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper and crushed garlic cloves to the skillet. Break the eggs into a jug and beat with a fork, season with a generous grind of pepper and salt and pour over the skillet. Sprinkle some fresh rosemary over and put the skillet in a preheated oven (200°). Bake the omelet until puffed and brown around the edges, it takes about 15 minutes.
