Exception #4 - Next Danish Pin-Up

So I've done this crazy thing.

A couple of day ago one of my friend sent me a link to a competition. A modeling agency is looking for a new pin-up model, and I've decided to sign up.

This is so exciting I'm about to make flip-flops and sing in french... And I don't know how to neither.

Well to win this I really need you help.
The competition is on Facebook, and basically to win I need your likes. The girl with most likes wins.

I really hope you will support me in this crazy project I've decided to jump into.

What do you do:

1. Press the following link; it will lead you directly to the picture on The next Danish Pin-up.
2. Like the picture.
3. Share it if you wish to.

Thank you so much. <3

There has been to manny irregularities on the blog all the way from the beginning, but I will try to update the blog 2-3 times a week from now on. Usually the updates will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays and hopefully I'll be able to post on Sundays as well. 

Yesterday and today is still mostly about simplicity. I like black, but I like colors as well, and that's why I very often use berets and in different colors. Two days ago I go a new red beret. I've always wished for a red one, but for some reason I never bought one. 
So when I saw one on eBay I ordered it right away. 
I wanted the beret to be in focus and the best way to do that is to tone everything else down. 

This is a basic black dress from asos. I love it cause it's so comfortable to wear yet it is so tight that it turns out so sexy that I've seen both women and men not knowing where to look when I wear it. 
I've matched the beret with a pair of red patent leather ballerina shoes. I bought these two years ago in a outlet shop for merely nothing. 

The same place I found the beret I found this cuuute silver cat-brooch. I love over-sided brooches and this one has a pretty good size. I matched it with a pair of silver earring from my always trusted h&m. As simple as it gets. 
The reason I've chosen silver jewelry to the red details is that the silver cools the very bright red down and gives it a harmonic look.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a picture of Audrey Hepburn wearing a bull-fighters inspired outfit. And I just fell in love with the idea. I tried to copy it but of course with my own twist. 
What I'm wearing it is pair of cigarette pants from h&m, I used to wear these all the times when I was dancing a lot, and a turtle neck blouse, also from h&m. I used a scarf I found in a local thrift shop as a belt to give it the bull fighter feel. And matched it all with a pair of leopard ballerina shoes. 

Here I'm using gold jewelry, cause I think that green goes very well with gold. The brooch is an very old pice found on eBay years ago, and the earrings are as the one you've seen before on the blog just in a different size.

It's spring in Copenhagen. It's seriously spring. It's that kind of weather; when you go out you actually can feel the warmth from the sun on your skin.

I planned to write an entry on Sunday, but one of my friends lured me out in park. 7 hour later when I got home I was so tired it took me approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes to move from my couch to my bed.

So here we go, an new update.

 I felt like celebrating spring this Sunday, so I wore the perfect summer dress. I just adore the color. It reminds me of summer and blue skies. What I love most about this dress is th fact that I don't need to wear a belt to make it look pretty. 
I found this dress some months ago i COS and yes, you are right, you have seen this dress before. But I couldn't help my self. This one is new and so absolutely lovely that I broke my own rule for it, but you know what.. I don't care. Rules are to be broken, and this dress is worth it. 

I didn't want to make a big deal out of a Sunday outfit. So I wore the dress with these pretty heart shaped earrings and and a pair of black ballerina shoes.

Yesterday was a stay-at-home-and-study day. So today I needed to do something extra. I wanted to play around with some 1940s hair, but victory rolls are so hard to make when your hair is too long.

My skirt is just a regular black pencil skirt I've found in a thrift show. I love black pencil skirts cause they re so practical and you can wear them casually during the day but also dress it up for a night out. 
The blouse is one of those pieces of clothes I found in my parents attic some weeks ago. I remember buying this blouse. It's probably seven year old, and I'm always impressed how good it still looks svn though it's just as ordinary as a VILA product. 

I'm retry sure you've seen both of these. The peacock is from a flea market her in Copenhagen and the earrings are from h&m. As simple as it gets.
