This week

Blogging on a Sunday? Who knew?! My friend Melinda is visiting for the week and she brought the sunshine. You are welcome anytime, friend! Last week Paul and I went to Kulturhavn, which was basically lots of events going on at all the different harbors around town, hence all the balloons and papel picado above. The polaroid is a little sneak peek of an upcoming project I’m stoked to show you. And Friday night we attended the Dansk Dansetheater at Polotigården for Melinda’s birthday. The show wasn’t as good as last year’s but Charlotte did the amazing costumes and we just love the excuse to attend a concert in the amazing police headquarters. It’s outside in the circular courtyard surrounded by pillars. It feels a bit Sound of Music where the Von Trapp’s are singing their final performance before making their escape. Speaking of the Von Trapp’s, we are heading to Vienna and Salzburg this week for a quick trip, do you have any suggestions? I’ve never been but I have a secret wish to love it. We are most definitely doing a Sound of Music tour, and I love Mozart so something Mozart-y? Anyone?

Lars’ (play) List: August


I’m the WORST when it comes to finding new music. I basically listen to classical, oldies, whatever gets my groove on, Janet Varney’s JV Club podcasts, or whatever people give me. Basically, I rely on much cooler people to fill my ipod. Enter, Katie Farber of This, That, & The Other. In addition to contributing twice a month with a “Outfit to room” she’ll be providing a playlist on the first Monday of each month. Yay! New material for my route to work. Thanks Katie!

This Week

Since I never get bored about talking about the weather, let’s discuss. Copenhagen did not have a cloud in the sky this whole week. BLISSSSSSS! I wore sandals! Without tights! I refuse to have someone rain on my parade (literally) and tell me about the thunderstorms tomorrow night.

This Girl: XV

This Girl  |  Reads  |  Gardens

I started this This Girl with the “reading” room that I found from Katy Elliott as I’ve been scouting out places to go in the South of France in September. Anyone have any tips? I’m looking for one place where we can stay for a number of days that an art lover would love. A town with cute shops and markets. A town where we can find fabrics and flowers and where we are inspired to paint and photograph. Am I the biggest mooch alive? I swear I’m not super needy in real life, I just trust my dear readers’ opinion. Shoot!

Art + Design + flowers + Style / Monday, 9 Jul 2012

Garden couture at Dior

Raf Simons debuted his first collection for the house of Dior at last week’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012 show. He envisioned a magical canvas of flowers within an intimate salon setting to set off his feminine silhouttes. I’d say….ACHIEVED! Each room contains hundreds of thousands of flowers from floor to ceiling: peonies, goldenrods, dahlias, carnations, delphiniums, roses…oh my!

The kicker is this video of assembling the set. The stylist in me is thinking “so much work to do in so little time” and the daughter-of-a-finance-father is thinking “how much is each flower?!”And the artist in me is thinking “now, THAT’s how you create magic in fashion.” I think this is the perfect blend of all the arts: fashion, set design, interior design, floral design. Dior, hats off for creating magic. You’re living out my dream budget. Now, go watch the video and check out Dior’s magazine. 

Thanks Rubi for the tip!
