While everyone is running off to uphold their new year's resolutions, I felt a responsibility to fulfil mine. "New year…new me…right?"... "Umm…not entirely". Of course, the first order of fashion business is highlighting some predicted trends for 2023. Tailoring, denim, and fringing styles are all trends from 2022 that we will continue to see in the new year. However, I must say…2023 is filled with 'twists and turns'.
Firstly, I would like to preface this piece…by saying this list is not set in stone but rather a written snapshot of my fashion vision board. "When you hear the title fashion icon…who comes to mind?" The usual list includes Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana, Grace Jones, Cher, and Madonna (rightfully so).
However, I wanted to make some personal amendments to that lineup…to feature modern-day icons. So, in celebration of Women's History (and my birthday) during March… let's drop some fashion muses.
As hibernating flower buds are beginning to poke their heads out of the Danish dirt, spring trends are also starting to blossom. I must admit, I type the word 'spring' with a hint of bitterness…seeing as it snowed twice during March.

"Is it true what they say…that a daughter's first love is her dad?" I understand the answer to this question is relative to the person answering, but for the following 653 words…my inspiration will come from my dad.
Masculine fashion (yep…jumping right to the topic at hand) is an ode to all dads worldwide. Who would've thought that your father's weekend mowing the lawn outfit would be a saturated 'fit check' now? Similar to the mom jean effect, adding the word 'Dad' to any article of clothing automatically increases its retro appeal.
Valentine's day is fast approaching with the yearly visit from our favourite vigilante cherub. Even though Cupid takes the laws of attraction into his own hands, the question of… "What should I wear?"...still remains. "Did you know that you could wear your lingerie beyond the notorious Love Day?... Out in public!?" I am here to share creative ways to infuse your bedroom talk into city-style screams. So…get comfy, and let's talk about how to transition from your sheets to the streets.
"So you did it…huh?"... "You made the move to Denmark!"...Welcome to this growing expat club of navigating a brand new country. I'm sure you have a list of important things to figure out, like sorting out housing, having your documents in order, and choosing a new cell phone provider…but I am here to give you a cheat sheet on another crucial subject…FASHION!
It’s the ‘days are getting shorter’ time of year again. Where all of the summer vibes hibernate under multiple layers of cashmere wool. Even though the temperatures are dropping, some fun holidays are coming up to add some heat to your fashion forecast.
Do you appreciate unconditional transparency? If your answer is 'yes'...then I have to admit…that starting this article was quite challenging. When the initial article theme example of the 'little black dress was pitched to me…I quietly winced. With an overfilled closet of clothes…I realised I don't even own a black dress (cue dramatic gasp).
The word 'blasphemy' comes to mind as I read the above title out loud. Being a Floridian for the last 17 years has spoiled my tolerance for chilly temperatures. However, this Florida girl has dormant Boston roots embedded with a strong sense of fashion memory. Spoiler Alert…I absolutely love fall fashion and hope to tempt you too.
