Describe your style in 5 words: That’s really hard because I like experimenting so much, but I think it’s a strange mixture of grunge, street, posh, Y2K, and vintage. My style is very dark but also kind of Bratz and extra.
Favourite stores in Reykjavík: I mostly shop online but if I shop in Iceland it’s mostly second hand. I like Hertex and Fatamarkaðurinn.
Favourite piece: Probably my white faux fur jacket that I inherited from my step-grandma. I rarely even wear it out because it’s so precious to me. The jacket is big and fluffy and pristine white.
Least Favourite Trend: I would probably say trends are my least favourite trends. In Iceland, some people just seem to look on Instagram and wear what others are wearing, but I think fashion is way more fun when you use it to express yourself. Nothing stays special if everyone is doing the same thing, so I think if someone is doing something extraordinary or special, it’s ok to be inspired by it but you shouldn’t copy it straight.
Lusting After: Something from the new 2019 Spring/Summer Dior collection. They have these beautiful bags with cool buckles. Something from that line.
And of course the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers. I wouldn’t spurge on them, but if they were gifted to me I definitely wouldn’t refuse. I don’t know if I could wear them out though, it’s like my fur jacket.
