i love your blog too!

Thanks to Evelien for the ‘I love your blog’ prize! I’m really not the network type of blogger and I’m utterly surprised to even be mentioned in this sort of thing, BUT INCREDIBLY FLATTERED! Really hope not to bore anyone with my answers…

1. Why did you create the blog?
When it all begun I lived in a small town in a relationship that was slowly breaking down – I needed to rant, I was tired of people finger-pointing at me on the street and wanted to give some attention to art and music that had very little exposure. I watched Susie posting crappy mirror shots of her outfits and hoped for one day to do the same, then the mirror-shot hype slowly died and bloggers became professional with tripods and all, and I still haven’t found any courage to do decent outfit posts. This blog exists since 2006 – it’s a dinosaur, like Susie’s and Zana’s blogs. I deliberately refuse any advertisement, rarely share a link or post about brands that send me their lookbooks – I feel that I have to genuinely believe in what I’m writing, because I LOVE writing…not blogging, but writing. I publish a fanzine and write for others if they ask me to, because that’s what I love. Any physical interaction is only worth it if I can write about it – a poem, a prose, a blog post.

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Will I shock anyone saying I don’t follow any blogs. I don’t participate in any networks, almost never comment, use Bloglovin’ or anything similar. I simply have several bookmarks to the sites that I like to check, these days most of them are blogs. Mainly streetstyle and photoblogs – for trend research. Non-English written ones for brand research. Art blogs. Online magazines. But there will be always Susie and Yvan who’s work I admire since 2006 and check them every day for already 4 years. Crazy!

3. Favorite makeup brand?
I think I’ve got the most sensitive skin in the universe. The only thing that works is Håkansson. Uslu Airlines on my nails.

4. Favorite clothing brand?
If Henrik Vibskov were to grow wings he’d be my angel, if he were to wear a crown he’d be my king, and I really think we should just get married.
Realistically? After 2 and a half years of working for COS my wardrobe if full of it, and I still like it. Acne, Stine Goya, Christophe Lemaire, Opening Ceremony, Martin Margiela – always find something I like and I’m ready to live off cornflakes for months to be able to pay that stuff.
There isn’t one aesthetic I admire, but a unison of the dissonance. Undercover, Proenza Schouler, Bernhard Willhelm, Margiela from the 90’s, BLESS, Marios Schwab, Lena Lumelski, Peter Pilotto, Fabrics Interseason, Mikio Sakabe, Arielle de Pinto, Natalia Brilli, Richard Nicoll, Katie Eary, Rodarte, Ann Sofie Back, Veronica B. Vallenes, Anntian… I’m sure to add a couple more almost every day, and then still having to go to Oxfam for a pair of new trousers.

5. Your indispensable makeup product:
‘Lady Danger’ red lipstick by M.A.C. and Uslu Airlines nailpolish in BHC grey.

6. Your favorite color:
For me every colour has specific use. Interior is only white and wood (that’s a colour too). The wardrobe is mainly black, grey and beige with all pastels and neutrals. Neon yellow, mint, magenta, neon pink on white make me happy.

7. Your perfume: I can spend years without one. Previously layering Comme des Garcons’ original perfume and Cinnamon Eau de toillete. Now Undercover’s Holygrace.

8. Your favorite film:

I rarely watch movies, but of the ones I did watch it’s ‘Funny Games’ (German original from 1997) by Michael Haneke, ‘Inland Empire’ by David Lynch, ‘Dancer in the Dark’ by Lars von Trier, or generally anything from the aforementioned directors, also Michel Gondry, Lucas Moodysson’s ‘A Hole in My Heart’ and the Danish Dogma films – ‘Festen’ by Thomas Vinterberg of course.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
Iceland and Japan. Just because. And I will surely re-visit Germany, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden. I want to go to Wales in UK – just read the city names like Trearddur or Pwllheli – music to my ears! I’d love to go to Shetland or Faroe, or even Spitsbergen islands.

10. Make the last question and answer to yourself:
Believe it or now, quite a few people asked me whether I may suffer from a light form of autism…because I don’t ask questions.

Now I guess I have to pass the ‘I love your blog’ prize to someone else… really everyone who stays true to their own opinion deserves it as much as anyone who keeps informed of the latest news and trends. I'll leave this open.


  1. Rest assured, I don't think you would ever bore anyone with this sort of thing, people generally are curious little creatures! Everyone answers the questionnaire in their own way, which makes it all the more interesting. I don't do network blogging either, but this was a nice opportunity to not have to think about what to write for once and just answer some questions. And if one of them was to say which are your favourite blogs, then yours is definitely still one of them. Keep up the good work, dear :) x

  2. I am glad you finally put yourself out there.

  3. I really enjoyed reading this post! I love Funny Games too, so creepy
