Tip!: RIKA Magazine

It's a shame if you have missed the hipster magazine RIKA, though who can blame you--they might be more famous for their Parisian parties with guests from the fashion elite than the actual (cool) paper. If you haven't thumbed through it I recommend that you buy a copy or check out their blog. Because in their latest issue a few interesting profiles have been interviewed like Yoko Ono and Jamie Bochert (who is also featured on the cover). I must add that I was really drawn to the stunning photo of Jamie, lying on a fabulous green couch.

Jag hoppas ni inte missat hipster tidningen RIKA, jag kan dock inte klandra er då den är mer kända för sina storslagna fester i Paris med modeeliten än det faktiskt coola magasinet. Om ni inte bläddrat igenom en upplaga rekommenderar jag att ni köper ett ex. eller kollar in deras blogg. I senaste numret finnar man flera intressanta intervjuer med t.ex. Yoko Ono och Jamie Bochert. En bild som verkligen fick mig att fastna för deras senaste upplaga var den ovan på Jamie som slappar på en grön sammetssoffa.

Old Town - Wild wild west outfit

I visited Old Town, where the earliest European settlement on the West Coast was established. To get in the right state of mind or just to feel pretty for the day, I put on a white dress with big shoulders, a western inspired belt and completed the look by having pony-tails and some flowers in my hair.
It might look like an amusement park, but there are actually a lot of interesting museums on these grounds. We stepped by the office of the first newspaper in this region (San Diego Union), the first courthouse, the first school etc. They had restored the beautiful Cosmopolitan Hotel (where fashionable people stayed at the time) and in one restaurant they had begun preparations for "Dia de los muertos" (Day of the Dead).
After walking around for some hours I found myself wanting to see a western movie. In the car back home I closed my eyes and dreamt of the fashion in those days; the long and voluminous skirts...the corset-like tops with puffy shoulders...cowboy boots and hats...

Today's Craving - Black and white pants

Isabeli Fontana (in Vogue Mexico) wearing a pair of unique pants with one black leg and one white. Which is undeniably a very rare sighting but something that looks very appealing. Not only this, I love the leather jacket with short sleeves and the shapes of it are really distinctive.

Modellen Isabeli Fontana bär en byxa med ett svart och ett vitt ben i ett modereportage för Vogue Mexico. Det är en unik byxa helt klart, inget man ser varje dag och den tilltalar mig verkligen. Jag föll även för läderjackan med korta ärmar där kanterna är så perfekt skurna, väldigt utmärkande.

No Autumn in California yet

First we popped by Yoghurtland for some tasty fruits and then a a stroll on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean, an ordinary day over here. But later we found ourselves in Downtown at a beautiful club, which has a cool lobby almost like a small library. Then I must mention the toilets which usually don't have a large painting hanging in the bathroom but here they do. The girl painted on the canvas really resembles the model Karlie Kloss in a way...

Först gick vi förbi Yoghurtland, ett stopp man inte får missa på vägen. Begäret efter fryst yoghurt med bär och frukter blev för stort. Därefter en promenad vid strandkanten, något som sker nästan varje dag här. Senare begav vi oss till "downtown" och hamnade på en mysig klubb där lobbyn är utformad som ett vackert litet bibliotek. Sedan får jag inte glömma att nämna toaletterna som ovanligt nog hade en ansenlig stor målning. Kvinnan som porträtterats på tavlan liknar onekligen modellen Karlie Kloss.



I can't believe how much that painting looks like Karlie Kloss or at least a little.
My beautiful sister.

This Month's Style Icon - Caroline Sieber

Caroline Sieber is clearly a Chanel girl in a class of her own, in a sense that she wears it more than often (which is displayed in these photos). There are so many pictures of her wearing the brand, and I can't blame her, it's hot!
If you didn't already know she's a successful stylist who dresses Emma Watson among others. I don't want to bore you with too many details, there are so many posts on blogs, the big fashion magazines and forums about this socialite and her incredible taste in clothes. I think these outfits represent her more than well, and you get the idea that this is no ordinary woman: she has a style every one aspires to have.

Caroline Sieber är som ni ser en Chanel-flicka i alla bemärkelser, hon bär märkets kläder mer än ofta vilket ni kan se på några av bilderna ovan. Det finns näst intill oändligt med foton på henne i Karl Lagerfelds kreationer.
Om ni inte redan hade vetskap om detta, så arbetar hon som stylist för bland annat Emma Watson. Jag vill inte tråka ut er med för många detaljer kring Siebers bakgrund, för det finns obegränsat med artiklar i de stora modemagasinen, inlägg på bloggar och diskussioner på diverse forum om hennes eleganta och attraktiva klädval. Denna kvinna är ett socialt fenomen i modekretsar och helt enkelt ingen ordinär kvinna utan hon besitter en stilkänsla som de flesta eftersträvar men aldrig riktigt lyckas med.
