Nomination


From Paris this summer.

Bloggen min har vært så heldig å bli nominert til årets moteblogger, i regi av Costume. Allerede i oktober skal juryen velge ut fem finalister. Ytterligere fem blir valgt i november, og i desember skal leserne stemme fram en vinner.
Jeg begynte å blogge fordi jeg elsker mote og fordi jeg ville dele mine erfaringer med andre. Det startet i mammas klesskap da jeg var fire år gammel (70-tallet), da jeg fant en hippiekjole og et par platformsandaler som jeg spankulerte rundt i foran speilet. Siden den gang har jeg samlet opp en garderobe som er langt fra fullendt, men jeg kan med hånden på hjertet si at jeg elsker 90 prosent av alt jeg eier. Dere som leser bloggen fast, vet at jeg er opptatt av gjenbruk, vintage, secondhand og liker å mikse dette med H&M, Vero Moda og andre high street klær. Grunnen til at jeg er så glad i vintage, er at alt har en karakter og det er unikt.
Alt jeg har kjøpt som er vintage, er juveler i klesskapet mitt og de gir meg en god følelse hver gang jeg tar det på. Denne følelsen ønsker jeg å formidle til andre. Det skal ikke være vanskelig å shoppe eller få seg sin egen stil. Jeg ønsker med bloggen å gi svar på spørsmål og inspirere til å tenke anderledes. Om det er hva slags neglelakk du kan kjøpe deg til 20 kroner eller en investering til 5000 kroner, vil jeg at bloggen min skal gi råd og svar på det meste. Gi meg gjerne ris og ros, tilbakemeldingene leser jeg alltid, og prøver å svare så godt jeg kan. Håper dere stemmer meg frem på Costume i desember! En ekstra stoooor takk til den som nominerte meg.

My blogg has been so lucky as to have been nominated for the magazine Costume fashionblogger award 2008! I want to thank all of you readers that keep coming back. The blogg has already exceeded my expectations of what I thought it could be, when I first started writing. I feel very fortunate to be a part of an environment of creativity, support and a passion for fashion. The blogg har brought with it some amazing opportunities for me.
My love for fashion began in my mothers amazing closet at the age of four. I loved dressing up in her 70s dresses and tall platform shoes. Whenever there was a costumeparty, I would dress up as my mum or a ballerina. From there on, I have never looked back. Our move to Los Angeles opened my eye to how to be stylish on a budget, since we did not have that much cash as students. Now, I have a great job, but I will never forget that time, as it was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. This was also the time that I started collecting vintage clothing. The beauty of a vintage item, the way its crafted and made, gets me every time. If I love it, I buy it. But of course price matters, I would have to earn millions to afford my dream closet. However, I believe I am very fortunate to have all the things I have, and to be able to afford the things I want. I also believe that dreaming makes us strive for something better, something bigger. And in my life, dreams always come true.

Oh many congratulations my dear Silje!! I love your wonderful post too, I can really empathise on growing up on a budget and also as you know, I share the love of vintage-there is nothing like it-the mystique, the quality, the nostalgia, all so lovely!! Even if you were rich dear Silje, you may go for the high end, expensive pieces (wouldn't we all!), but you have the eye for stylish vintage, especially at bargain prices and that would never leave you, rich or poor!!
