Under The Norwegian Sun


Inspiration for the shot: Japanese girls
running all over the city with umbrellas to
avoid the strong sun. Quite clever I think.

The dress is the (new) vintage dress from
the same seller as I got the Oscar de la Renta
scarf, and I could not be more happy about it.

The dress was a steal of ebay and perfect
for a hot summer evening.

Remember when Carrie wore that white
umbrella in an Episode of SATC? I must say
I loved that look, so when I got this umbrella
for one of my Bachelorette parties last year,
I was very happy. Such a fun look.

Dress: Vintage from TheRooVintage
Shoes: Creative from ebay
Belt: Old studs from Lindex
Bracelet: Vintage
Umbrella: Gift
Sunnies: Oliver Peoples
En av vintagekjolene jeg kjøpte på ebay i forrige uke. Perfekt selger, utrolig bra service, så absolutt å anbefale. Elsker snittet, fargene og 50tallsfølelsen. Blir mange kjoler i denne varmen,
orker ikke være så utrolig kreativ når det er så varmt.

This is the vintage dress I bought from the same seller as the Oscar de la Renta scarf. And of course I love it! The colors, the fit and the huge skirt, perfect for a I am sorry all of my last posts have been about dresses, but its so hot here, I cant really imagine wearing anything else. Just wanted to have some fun with the umbrella, hope you enjoy it!

Your dress posts just prove that it's the perfect outfit for Summer and you look so pretty wearing those. Love the idea of the umbrella.

Meliwe sa...

Hei! Det hadde vært supert om du kunne ha laget en post om hvordan en kan kle seg kult, men behagelig under øyafestivalen. Det er meldt regn og dårlig vær, så jeg har lyst å holde meg varm og tørr, men også se kul ut. Ser for meg at du har noen gode tips på lur ;-)

CoutureCarrie sa...

oh you are just fabulous! That dress is so you - the cinched waist, floral, knee-length - perfect!

annabananna sa...

you just look fab, slje. ther's nothing more to say here :)

Siljesfashion sa...

Hei Meliwe, jeg har allerede laget to poster om dette, en i Juni og en i juli. Den i juni het festival fashion, så du kan bare søke den opp. I Intervjuet med kvinneguiden under in the media, gir jeg også en del gode råd. Håper du får det fantastisk på Øya!

Irma: Tusen takk! Høres ikke så værst ut akkurat.

Hilde: Haha, det er bare å begynne å shoppe på ebay, som sagt kjøper jeg de fleste for rundt 100 kroner. Men for meg er de slevfølgelig verdt mye mer!

Arielle: What I do is that I measured my self properly and then compare it to the measurements of the dress. This has worked very well for me. It even worked with my wedding dress, all but 2 dresses I ordered have been unaltered.

Danz sa...

Oh Silje...that dress is PERFECT!!!! I love, I want haha!

STYLE DU MONDE sa...
