Finally done with my exams! It actually feels a bit weird to get back to blogging, though I haven't taken much more than a week off. We're still "enjoying" some seriously cold weather here in Norway, and I've become a layering champion. Trying to look good is not as important as staying warm, but I've found that maxi dresses and skirts are great both for layering purposes and for hiding ugly leg warmers and bulky stockings.
I really enjoy the colours in the two looks above. I've been wearing a lot of beige and grey lately, and now I'll have to find something red to add to the mix. Both pictures are from Café Mode.
Finally, I'd like to say thank you to everybody who's been leaving comments lately. I've been reading them all, and I really appreciate your kind words! I'll be spending some time the next few days catching up with all of you.

Layer upon layer upon layer. Above: every cover of every issue of Vogue this year looking so much better together than any single cover on its own. Below: the 2010 issues of Vogue India and Vogue Italia. I wish an editor would be brave enough to use this idea for a December cover. Many thanks to LJ user shrubrub for making these. More covers here, at LJ community fashin.

Spring shoes from Camilla Skovgaard. I really like this silhouette (perhaps because it reminds me of Nicholas Kirkwood), and the baby blue is trés cute. We've had very little snow so far this winter, but the temperature is so low that even peep-toe boots are a bad choice. I really want to be able to wear gorgeous sandals again.

There will be some rather lazy posts around here for a few weeks, as I've got four exams coming up before Christmas, but I'll keep posting little things I find and enjoy from around the web. Today, I found these little gems from Topshop. Do want!

Clockwise from top: Calvin Klein / Emporio Armani / Michael Kors / Valentino / Chloé
I still want a small, boxy handbag, but after seeing these, I really want one in white. Perhaps not very practical, but who cares? I have a feeling the Chloé bag (furthest to the left) is going to be everywhere come spring.

If you've followed this blog for a while, you know I'm a big fan of the bi-annual Accessory Report from style.com. This year, it is called the Accessories Index, and it's bigger than ever. With a total of 5140 items, it's a dream for somebody like me. The only problem is that I've been browsing accessories instead of studying for my exams, but there is still time for that.
Among the styles that caught my attention were these Givenchy shoes. They are all totally gorgeous, but so steep! Being a ballet dancer might be to your advantage if you want to be anything approaching comfortable while wearing these...
