And then they were mine (at last!)

Ever since I first laid eyes on these babies I was determined they would end up in my shoe collection. And now they have! Manillusion has signed an exclusive deal with the Vivienne Westwood line made by Melissa.

The shoes are all rubber, smells delicious and is surprisingly comfortable to wear.

30 Minute Love Affair

I love the style of this British fiesty woman. And I love the videos. The music doesn’t always work for me, but the visual elements are enough to make me watch them – over and over again.

I’m talking about Paloma Faith, of course. Just take a look at this amazing video for the INXS cover “Never Tear Us Apart” and you’ll be cheering with me ;)



And these two videos are also filled with awesomeness:





I also love this song, “30 Minute Love Affair”, it’s got a great 90s feel to it. You’ll be singing it in the shower before you know it ;)



True Norwegian Black Metal

Well – it is. And I love it.

Darkthrone is by far my favourite black metal band. And it’s really frustrating trying to buy band merch when you’re a tiny metal chick and all you really want is a tank top with your favourite band..

But, luckily, there’s the interwebs. And I found this amazing little dress w/hood – with Darkthrone’s Transilvanian Hunger. Thank you, Hell Couture. I am SO a returning customer. ♥

BTW – Darkthrone is releasing their 15th studio album on February 25th – The Underground Resistance. ;)

 

Happy b-day, Mr Bowie!

I know it was yesterday. But I am taking an extra day with Mr Bowie. ;)
I can’t believe he’s the same age as my dad – 66 years old – and still looks awesome!

I SO want the Bowie leggings from Charles of London. Of course we have them at Manillusion. Which means I’m drooling over them every day. I just know they’re coming home with me some day soon.

Another Christmas wish (for the Christmas I’m not celebrating..)

I’ve drooled over these items for a couple of years now. And I’m still dreaming about them. So – where are you, o’ filthy rich stranger with an urge to spoil a Norwegian girl rotten with Atsuko Kudo garments? ;)

 

Kamille Magazine No. 21 2012

Yesterday I bought my first issue of the Norwegian lifestyle magazine “Kamille”. Why, you wonder? The answer is, of course, because I’m in it! ;)

Every month Manillusion invites to a customer night. Two hours of champagne, shopping, new items and sometimes really good deals. Last August, the Norwegian pop starlet Alexandra Joner, joined our customer night. And “Kamille” was following her around that day.

The “Kamille” photographer, Nina Ruud, took a bunch of photos while they were there. But I didn’t think they would use the ones with Lise and me in them. I was wrong!

Manillusion customer night is always a lot of fun. See for yourselves! ;)
I was wearing my absolute favourite item for this year, my studded leather vest. And my Harley Davidson boots.

Alexandra is wearing All that glitters is gold dress and zombie pumps, everything from Manillusion. :)
