How to wear a tie as a woman

Krawattenknoten

It’s friday, and it’s tie-time folks. I have always loved wearing a skirt, shirt and a tie, so I found some inspiring pictures for you right here:

Tip: As a woman you should go for the slim ties

If you even have a waistcoat in the back of your closet, dust it off and start wearing it together with a shirt and tie.

If you don’t know how to tie a tie, then don’t worry. Here’s a video that shows you how to tie a tie step by step

Some of you are maybe old enough to remember this scene from the movie “Pretty Woman” with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.

Nice Tie! I got it for you

One of my favorite pair of shoes, are these beauties from the danish shoebrand Lola Ramona. They instantly make my black dresses look more festive and fun, and I always get tons of compliments when wearing them.

Mondo Kaos – Highway to Heaven – Domestic Diva Shopping

Ok guys – I know I have not been good at blogging lately. Work/life balance have been evil with me I tell you.

Update: Well, I was invited to be a member of the jury at this years e-commerce award through FDIH. I was invited to judge on 2 different categories: B2C small companies & Social Commerce. Yesterday we found the winners of all categories. They are all being announced at this years big e-commerce award event on the 24th of May, so stay tuned :)

To kind of celebrate I decided to visit one of my favorite icon online stores at their small shop in Nørrebro (Copenhagen). I really needed to update my wardrobe (yeah – right).

Anyway – I went to this gorgeous tiny shop called “Mondo Kaos“. For a couple of years I have been a fan but now I needed some actual physical shopping time! This shop is absolutely one of the greatest “Rockabilly”/”Mad Men” dress shops in Copenhagen – No doubt about that! These kind of dresses really fits a “curvy” figure like mine so I end up looking like a real woman and not just another “fat” woman trying to fit in whatever is fashionable right now among skinny models.

I ended up trying these 4 dresses. I actually just brought 3 dresses to the dressing room, but after I tried the first dress, another customer asked me to try one of her personal favorite dresses. Of course I had to try it #DOH!!

(Let me tell you – I wanted to try a lot more dresses, but the sizes I use were almost all sold out – thanks a lot big butt!)

Anyway. The shop is very small but very authentic. Ditte (the owner?) is very trustworthy and sweet. Not at all pushy, but once you have chosen your favs, she is very attentive and serviceminded. The shop also sells gorgeous shoes (Edith and Ella & Lola Ramona). Unfortunately the ones I liked were sold out in my size.

So here are the dresses I tried on. Which are your favorites?

I ended up buying the blue sailor dress (the first one) and the white dress (last picture).

All way home I was listening and singing along to Imelda May and Caro Emerald. Pure Divalove <3

Mondo Kaos – Diva shopping Love indeed. Just for being authentic and very true to the concept without loosing the soul and passion.

Så køber Minnie Mouse nye sko!

Åh, fandt ud af på facebook i dag, at Lola Ramona holder lagersalg i dag via Leonora Christine Skov, der har en lige så stor passion for sko og kjoler som jeg har. For at smide malurt i bægeret sendte hun mig et billede på et helt fantastisk par. Kan selvfølgelig ikke tage derind, da jeg er hjemme med syg datter. Hvad gør en klog, og hvad gør jeg?

Googlede som en sindsyg, og voila. Et par nu indkøbt (til fuld pris). Glemmer nu ALT om at der rent faktisk er lagersalg, hvor jeg ganske sikkert kunne få dem til halv pris, og glæder mig i stedet som et lille barn juleaften til at modtage mine nye babies.

Se lige her – er de ikke bare to-die-for?

When the cat is out – Minnie Mouse is buying new shoes!

Oh, found out on facebook today that Lola Ramona is having a huge sale via Leonora Christina Skov, who has an equally strong passion for shoes and dresses as I have. To make things even worse, she sent me a picture of an amazing pair. Can not go to the sale, since I am home with sick daughter. What to do?

Googled like a mad, and voila. A gorgeous pair is now purchased (at full price). Now I will forget all about my next bank statement and the sale in Copenhagen. I am sooo looking forward to receive my new babies.

Look at them – aren’t they are not just two-die-for?
