3 Favourites on a Thursday

A video and music edition

1. I finally got around to see the Chanel Haute couture Spring/Summer 2014 show, and it was fantastic. The mix of music by one of my favourite artists Sebastien Tellier, the always beautiful Chanel style and the fun of the very sporty element of the shoes made this one for the fashion history books. Karl did it again!

2. Daft Punk featuring Pharrell featuring Stevie Wonder featuring Chic at the Grammy’s. This was one of my favourite songs of last year, and I loved this live collaboration, and especially seeing Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono get down to it! But Steven Tyrler, sorry, but your moves were a total #fail.

3. Katy B’s “Crying for no reason”. Such a beautiful song, both lyrically and musically. I especially love the beat change in the final chorus. So strong. Here is a beautiful live version:

Stories of last night

… And this morning.

Right now I’m looking through photos from this weekend, and thought I would share some with you all.

Last night we went to a small festival called The Campus festival. We started off with a small pre-party while listening to the headliners of the night to get in the right mood.

I went with these fine people.

Lint, Sun Age and LoveLoveLove played, and I loved them all (no pun intended).

There was even a bar with a slightly trashy disco floor.

After a long night, I made it to lunch at Bastant,

And met up with Sigrun (which I havn’t seen in almost a year – reunion!) and Ragnhild.

I had the most delicious lunch of 2014 (so far) – so tasty! #NotAVegeterian. In my opinion the best way to spend a Sunday.

It’s all about the streets

My favourite part of the Couture Fashion Week of Paris? The street style of the guests, of course!
